What have we done?

Hey guess what? I just lost my doctor. He doesn’t take Medicare patients anymore. Actually, I don’t blame him. Is there any business person out there willing to take 10 cents from the government on every dollar earned ? I don’t think so.

I still can’t believe how Obama managed to get re-elected. Why would anyone vote for government gridlock,partisanship, economic stagnation, and a guy who reached his “Peter Principle” — one’s highest level of incompetence — very early in his first term.

Did Americans do a complete 180 and become fed up with traditional values like liberty, a day’s pay for a good day’s work, free enterprise, good morals or is it that you all sold your souls for the “free stuff” … like 47 million souls on food stamps, or two years unemployment compensation, or 12 million souls on disability, or half of American households pay no income tax? People vote their pocket books at the moment without thinking about the consequences of the future … like no job, house foreclosures … you know the rest of the story.

I bet the majority of Americans don’t even know that Obamacare and the Affordable Health Care Act are one in the same. Uninformed voters have proved how dangerous they are. They are clearly swayed by emotion and don’t vote with their heads. We are stuck with a “cool dude” minority president who has made dozens of bogus promises he can’t deliver on, has shown himself to be a serial liar, uses the demeaning tactic of name calling, which he learned as a student of Saul Alinsky”s booklet “Rules for Radicals” as his bible, which is nothing more than warmed over “Marxism” that has failed over and over again.

But what can you expect from a guy that has a resume as thin as toilet paper? Basically he is a small-minded man without the temperament or intellect to handle his job. Let’s face it, we’re all screwed with this president at the helm and his like kind (Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Mark Udall, Michael Bennet).

As a result of these politicians, the old America may be gone forever. You’ve got to feel sorry for your kids and grandkids and say to yourself, “What have I done ?”
