It’s time for a change.
It’ll soon be time to cast your vote, so you have to look back at what the current politico has done for you over the last four years.
I see auto workers in Detroit, who no longer work on the line because that line no longer exists, and now have to swallow the indignity of watching their families live on food stamps.
I see decent people, who once had homes and aspirations, now living in tent cities.
I see coal miners in Ohio and Pennsylvania, fighting for their jobs, because they know those jobs are at risk from a president who seriously thinks some kid installing solar panels, manufactured in China, will keep the lights on.
I see out of control federal agencies, who believe it’s their job to crucify industries they don’t like, and who don’t give a damn about the local job losses.
I see thieves from the financial industry, who’ve destroyed whole businesses and livelihoods, retiring early into multi-millionaire lifestyles, with absolutely no prospect of punishment, when anyone else gets jail time for selling a dime bag.
I see the anger of hard-working men and women, who are now on the bench through no fault of their own and watching some east coast idiot on daytime TV lecturing them on how to buy exactly the right investment realty, or an equally stylish idiot from California, who makes a handsome living selling feng shui advice.
I see a mainstream media, who are still hopelessly in love with Obama, despite him being nearly universally despised by the working man, irrespective of the color of their therefore automatically racist butts.
I see a president, whose only apparent accomplishment, is giving the order to kill a terrorist, when everyone knew there was always going to be that payback for 9/11, no matter who was in charge.
I see brave men still fighting and giving their lives in a war that everyone knows is unwinnable.
I see a president, who not only never had any idea about how to help his country through its hour of need, but who’ll also continue to be just as clueless, if elected again.
I see a man who was found out in his first year in office and even then failed to man up to the job. I see a man who’s out of his depth, barely treading water and drowning.
I’ve heard lots of words from him over the last four years but seen nothing more than reaction to events, rather than action to get ahead of, and in control of those events.
Oh America, my America, you deserve so much better.
