Early Voters-There is No One In the Voting Booth With You!

by Jayne D. Frank

All over the Country, you are making your way into the voting booth for early voting to make the most important choice of your lifetime – that of the President of the United States.  It is extremely unfortunate that much of this voting takes place a full month before the scheduled November 6 election, because you will not have had a chance to personally evaluate the candidates from their answers in the Debates, and much can happen to our economy and national security in the upcoming month which could affect your vote.

But the important things to remember when voting are:  1)  There is no union official following you into the booth and no one that will be casting that ballot with you, 2) there is no one in the booth that will make you feel guilty should you no longer feel the first “black” President has performed his duties, and 3) there is only your intellect, knowledge and gut feeling about the path our country is taking and the future of our children that will be with you in that voting booth.

The facts of the last four years and the record of  President Obama will be the only true reality that will help you make this crucial choice in 2012:

  • This President and his Administration lies to the American people about the condition of the economy and their ability to do anything about it.  This is because the President has no experience in the private sector and has no clue how to provide prosperity to the middle class.  His entire life has been spent denigrating the wealthy and capitalist endeavors in this Country and his sole goal is to redistribute your present and FUTURE earnings to those less fortunate.  The President cannot dispute the facts that the wealthy in this Country are your employers, and they overwhelmingly give a huge percentage of their personal income, by choice, to charities that take care of those less fortunate.  Mitt Romney personally chose to give over $4 million of his money in 2011 to poor people.  The wealthy in this Country will be the only ones able to provide you and your family with a secure working environment with the opportunity of millions of new good jobs.
  • You alone are responsible for making the choice of whether your lives and those of your spouse, partner and children will be  negatively affected by choosing to rehire a President that has not done the job he was hired to do over the past four years.  Is there more regulation and interference in the choices you make for your family and will you will be able to provide a comfortable life for them going forward because of the choice you make?  The Obama Government is already in your church making decisions about whether you must support partial birth abortion and contraception; he is in your child’s school changing your children’s lunch choices often leaving them hungry and unable to properly stay focused and learn during the afternoon; his Administration is changing the curriculum of your children’s school to distort, eliminate, or refocus their learning,  not on the basics that can provide them with good jobs, but to better agree with his socialist redistribution statist agenda.  Because of Obama’s regulations and mandates which have hurt small business in this Country, the prospects for you or your family to better your financial condition in the next decade will be severely restricted should you vote to elect him for a second term and continue his policies.
  • Obamacare, unless replaced with a more workable private market health system, will cut into your health choices, extend your waits for needed procedures much like other countries using a similar system, and your individual and/or family health costs will necessarily skyrocket to cover all the people intended to be covered under this flawed legislation.
  • Your cost of living has skyrocketed under the Obama Administration.  Precipitated in large part by the sheer arrogance of the Administration not to tap into and expand our natural resources such as our own off shore oil resources, shale oil and natural gas (in lieu of more “green” energy that costs more and is unreliable at best).  The gasoline prices at the pump have doubled since Obama took office causing the average American family to make budget decisions from the resulting increases in food prices and consumables against paying for gas  to drive to work should they be fortunate enough to have a job.  Can your family afford to continue $4/gallon gas or higher any longer, not to mention how home heating fuel will increase as we approach the winter months?  Because of the high cost of gasoline to ship goods, your  grocery bill is at an all-time high and you are already making decisions for your family whether to feed them cheaper processed box meals rather than healthier and more expensive fresh produce or meats that provide the nutrients your children need.
  • Finally, we only have to look back two weeks at the fact that President Obama and his surrogates deliberately lied to the American people about issues of national security.  They lied to our face about our Americans having been killed by spontaneous protests of a video instead of telling us that Al Qaeda was alive and well and had purposely killed Americans in Libya on the anniversary of our original 9/11 attack.  If he lied about this, how many times will he lie to us about your family’s national security in order to make himself appear more peaceful and anti-aggressive?  As Governor Huckabee indicated this morning, Watergate was the largest Presidential scandal in this Country before Libya, but people did not die in Watergate.  Americans die and continue to die under this President’s leadership.  Don’t put your family at risk with a President who routinely bends the truth when it is convenient to further his agenda and makes the wrong decisions for the American people .

So what candidate should you vote for?  I think you know the answer to that question, so go alone into the voting booth and vote your conscience for your future and the future of your family and our Nation.

J. Christopher Stevens’ Murder – “Just a Bump in the Road!”

By Richard H. Frank

Once again, Barack Obama has shown his true colors proclaiming on “60 Minutes” that the “criminal” assault on the Libyan Consulate that resulted in the assassination of Ambassador Stevens was just a “bump in the road” along the path to achieving democracy in the Middle East.  A President that ignores the obvious fact that the attack was a coordinated terrorist assault upon the United States on the anniversary of 9/11 is either living in some alternative universe or is just plain perpetrating a lie in order to shift responsibility for his lack of leadership and failed policies to some obscure video that allegedly insults the Prophet Mohammed.

Then on Tuesday September 25, the President addressed the UN General Assembly and used the biography of Ambassador Stevens as the introduction to his remarks leading to placing the blame for Mid-East violence against our interests on the video, asserting our Government had nothing to do with the production.

Barack Obama, the Narcissist-in-Chief, ignores his responsibility to meet with leaders of the world but takes time to appear on The View where he proclaimed his presence to be “eye candy” for the show.  Does this man have any respect for the dignity of the Office he holds?  I think it is time we judge Barack Obama not by his words alone, but by his actions, or lack of action.

Three and one-half years after assuming the Office, we are witnessing Obama’s “fundamental change” in America.  Chronic unemployment, record foreclosures, 8.2% drop in household income and a loss of 40% in the net worth of the average American.

Yet Obama continues to champion deficit spending and trillion-dollar increases in the National Debt in the name of “fairness” to correct a stagnant economy for which he assumes no responsibility.

As to his dismal record, he and  his supporters have only one response.  That response is to blame George W. Bush.  Somehow, I cannot find George W. Bush on the ballot anywhere in America and think it is time for the Democrats to run on their own record.

Given the reality of domestic and foreign policy today under Barack Obama, it is unbelievable that he would lead Mitt Romney in any poll concerning the 2012 Presidential election.

Should you believe the murders of J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans are “just a bump in the road” resulting from Obama’s foreign policy, I hope we never hit a pothole along that road.  That “pothole” is coming into focus in the form of Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon and having to take sides with Israel to prevent their ultimate achievement of that goal.  What will Obama do when Israel takes the initiative to protect their people from a country that has sworn to wipe them off the face of the earth.  I’m sure he will find a way to spin the situation and place the blame directly at the feet once again of George W. Bush.

The time has come to fire Obama and return this Country to the path of assuring respect for the principles and values that have made America the greatest Country in the history of the World.

Women Don’t Really Care What Happened Over the Past Four Years!

by Jayne D. Frank

“Women don’t really care what happened over the past four years” is a direct quote from Barack Obama’s mouthpiece Stephanie Cutter.  Stephanie, first of all, is old enough to have had the life experience of a gnat.  Her experience is consumed with the adoration of Barack Obama and the Progressive Agenda.   She is enthralled with a high-paying taxpayer-funded job that allows her to say what she wants, when she wants to, and to totally write off the majority of American women with one sentence.

Let me tell you Stephanie and the Obama campaign – Women DO care about the last four years.  Here’s what we have experienced first-hand:

  1. Because of the price of gas precipitated by your boss  not wanting to tap America’s own energy resources, women have to make some draconian decisions to not take their kids to their games, save grocery shopping for once a month, and not have their families go out to dinner like they used to.
  2. Because of the declining value of the dollar and the price of gas, women cannot afford to go to the grocery store without a calculator and without giving up good nutritional food for their children.  Anyone knows that staying within the center of the store, or within processed food, is a great deal less expensive than the outside of the store where good produce, meats, dairy products and the like are kept.  Women’s grocery shopping is now dictated not by their family’s needs, but by what they can afford to spend during that trip.  Their children and husbands’ health suffers because of that.
  3. Women are making the choice whether to have their hair cut at the salon they used to go to, or to get their children’s hair cut at a cheap flat fee barber.  Because of the stress that most mothers have in working and taking care of their families, that once a month trip to the salon used to be their only relaxation.
  4. Women who previously would have made the decision to stay home and take total responsibility for raising their children are now pushed into going to work in one or even two jobs to make ends meet for the family.  The children suffer, marriages suffer, and women lose their energy so that there is nothing left for their spouse or children.

There are so many instances where women in America, young and old, have suffered under the administration of Barack Hussein Obama.  To even hint that women don’t care about the last four years is arrogant, immature, insensitive but completely in line with the way Barack Obama thinks.  His take is that single women are so infatuated with his “coolness” that they wouldn’t dare leave him.

Women are much more intelligent and will do the right thing in November for themselves and their families.

Seniors and Millenials Voting for Obama – Don’t You Get It, or Are You Just Stupid!

by Jayne D. Frank

Apparently everyone in this country except you seniors and millenials voting for Obama’s re-election recognize the Democrat lies and distortions of this year’s election, and perhaps the only thing that will make you wake up is the truth (unless you can’t handle the truth).

  • Barack Obama has NOT protected Medicare like AARP has lied to you about.  Medicare Advantage is going to be terminated which is the system that many seniors have.  The reason?  Obamacare cuts what AARP and many other companies providing Medicare Advantage get from the Government.  The result will be that you are either thrown out of the current plan you are in so that you can pay more for a Medigap policy, OR you will be thrown into a pool of people covered by “Big Brother.””  Is this what you worked so hard for all these years – to be lied to be your Government and your insurer?  AARP is only in this fight because if you use your head instead of your emotions, you will see that they stand to lose a lot of money from your current participation in their plan.  Obama raided Medicare at the tune of $716 billion to put that money into Obamacare so that the people he wants covered, get covered.  Believe me, that’s not seniors because in his own words (to paraphrase) seniors and babies are not productive to society!  That money taken from Medicare will result in bureaucrats telling you what care you MAY receive and paying your doctor less so that eventually he can’t care for you.  Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are the ONLY ones which will allow you to keep the Medicare that you have in place now but will change it for your children and grandchildren so that they have Medicare when they get older.  Obamacare will cost another $1.6 trillion more than the trillions that were originally anticipated to cover the amount of Americans (and illegal immigrants) who Obama promised to cover.  Are you really so selfish that you won’t use rational thinking and protect future generations?  Only repeal and replacement of Obamacare will preserve the current coverage of seniors already in the system. Seniors are NOT getting their familiar annual physicals free — this is a lie (see my Annual Physical articles).
  • Barack Obama’s agenda is to have the Government CONTROL the internet, including YouTube videos and social media content.  Recent legislation for this failed in the House of Representatives, but Obama is going to circumvent Congress and the rights of Americans by issuing an Executive Order taking away your internet privacy rights.  His ultimate goal is for State control of all media and he currently has this Executive Order being finalized using the recent idiotic Innocence of Muslims trailer.  Millenials, your future is just about set in stone.  You will not be able put videos online that you want; you will not be able to look at whatever YouTube videos interest you, and you will be watched by the Government for anything on social media that does not agree with the positions espoused by the Democrats.  Say Goodbye to the status quo.
  • The Obama Administration wants to control what Americans see on television and hear on the radio, often proposing that the Fairness Doctrine be imposed.  This would mean that the Government alone would have the right to take off the air whatever they felt did not agree with their draconian positions and could impose mandated television programs for Americans.  It is the case in many third-world countries and is not very far away.  Only our Republican House and the calls of furious Americans have stopped legislation in Congress to impose this.
  • Teenagers and Millenials – do you think your phone will be exempt from the above Government mandates in the future  – it certainly will not and the Government will move in to monitor who is called and the conversation of your call.
  • Both seniors and millenials are already the victims of Obama’s policies not to protect and promote our natural resources of oil and coal in this Country.  This Administration would rather see themselves as globalists giving offshore contracts and business to other countries and shutting down any possibility of our own energy independence.  Can you afford to keep chosing whether to eat or put gas in your car?  Remember Obama’s administration said that gas “should” go up to $10/gallon in order to further their agenda. This is the decision you will continue to be faced with if you re-elect Barack Obama.
  • Do you want Government telling you what kind of car you must drive, what kind of house you will be able to afford or whether you can only get a good job if you belong to a union?  That is where we find ourselves in 2012 and President Obama’s redistribution agenda will make sure that your opportunities are stopped or limited until the poorest in our Country are raised to “your standard of living” without their having  had to work for it.
  • Do you like meeting your friends for beer and a pizza, taking your children to McDonald’s for a Happy Meal or gathering around the TV for a sports event with all the makings for a great night – popcorn, chili, hamburgers, dip, cheeses, etc.  Think about the good times you have had with your friends because once the Obama Administration’s “food agenda” is in full force you will not be able to eat what you want.  Mrs. Obama has already interfered with your loss of freedom by depriving families of the choice of what their children will eat at school, taking sugar out of products or limiting the amount you can buy.  All this under the guise of “knowing what is good for your family.”

I personally will vote to retain my freedom as protected and assured by my American Constitution and Declaration of Independence and I will vote to allow Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to get us back on an “American Way of Life.”  Should this fail,  I can only pray for the America I love and know and this will be just the beginning of what Barack Obama has described as “his flexibility in his second term (to get done what he wants).” He ignores the rule of law, ignores the Constitution and won’t work with our Legislative Branch of Government (both Democrats and Republicans).

I implore seniors, new voters, Millenials and all previous supporters of Barack Obama to look beyond themselves and their needs.  This an America of more than 300 million people, 69 million of whom are senior citizens (your parents and grandparents) and those just trying to enter the workforce and whose parents have described the “American Dream” to them.  This is THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION in my lifetime, and I have been through many decades of Presidential elections.  Do the right thing and pull the lever for America’s future on November 6.

Bin Laden is Dead and GM is Alive!

by Richard H. Frank

It never ceases to amaze me that the Obama Administration treats “We the People” like naive children who pay no attention to the Administration’s obvious blunders. Notwithstanding the complicated situation existing in the Mid East as a result of “Obama’s Arab Spring” we now learn the President has skipped 54% of his daily national security briefings instead placing a higher priority on his re-election.

With every crisis, be it the economy, the failed stimulus, chronic unemployment or escalating fuel prices, Obama finds something or someone to blame.  Now the latest culprit being blamed for the Mid-East violence is the producer of a film trailer allegedly offensive to the Prophet Mohammed.  I wonder how much Vice President Biden’s proclaiming at the Democratic Convention “Bin Laden is Dead and GM is Alive” had to do with lighting the fuse to extremists already set to protest on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon;  Biden and the entire Obama Administration are conspicuously absent and silent.    I find it hard to believe the Islamic fanatics took no notice to union supporters waving bumper stickers proclaiming the death of bin Laden and the resurrection of GM as the crowing achievements of the Obama Presidency.  So much for not spiking the football.

What is even more astonishing is the silence of the mainstream media not making mention of the inflammatory chant led by Biden during the convention.  The blood of four Americans murdered in Libya and those attacked at Camp Leatherneck is on the hands of the Obama Administration and the direct result of their appeasement policies.

“We the People” hold the key to sending a  message to the militant Islamic governments in the Middle East and showing our support for Israel.  That key is to fire the Obama Administration in November and replace them with representatives that will live up to their oath and pledge to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  So help them God!

Whether our Country Survives is Up to the Women of America

by Jayne D. Frank

Single women in America in large part have made up their minds that they will vote this year for “Mr. Cool” and you can attribute this to one main reason.  These women have no other responsibility or concerns other than themselves – their paychecks, their contraceptives and health care, and of course protecting “the One” from getting voted out of office.  Married women and those who have the responsibility of taking care of parents or others in their homes will have every decision they make for the good of their household members negatively affected for the short and long-term by re-electing President Obama.  Although said to be an independent body, Ben Bernanke of the Federal Reserve, has a high stake in the re-election of Obama – Mr. Romney has indicated that he will “fire” Bernanke.

Mr. Bernanke’s most recent decision to print billions of additional paper dollars, is not only his attempt to support Obama, but this devastating action is the “real war on women” in this country.  Mothers in this country do not have to understand the perplexities of quantitative easing to understand that their family’s standard of living will substantially decrease with the printing of more fake money to “stimulate” the economy and produce jobs, as stated by Mr. Bernanke.

The immediate impact on mothers and other female heads of households is dealing with inflation.  Costs of food, clothing and fuel to heat your homes and transportation all jump without any corresponding economic improvement.  Families are on the brink already of skimping on the nutrition and quality of food for their children and cutting back on family activities requiring driving.  They already are purchasing their children’s clothes either on lay away or from thrift stores.  And women are already wondering how they will heat their homes this winter.  The Fed’s actions for printing more money have just exacerbated this problem.  Will you do the right thing for your family and change course this November by voting to stop this kind of frivolous government spending by the current Administration?

The segment of our population most severely impacted are the seniors already living on fixed incomes who must decide on spending their scarce eroded dollars on food, medicine, energy or the basic necessities of life just to survive while the Feds print out paper money, the value of which reduces the standard of living for every American.  But seniors for the most part have lived long enough post depression and through the Carter Administration’s similar disastrous policies, that they will turn out this November to make their voices heard and say “Enough” to President Obama.  Our busy mothers, with often two jobs trying to make ends meet for their families, will be the deciding votes to either continue this downward spiral for their families, or they will also say “Enough” and vote to change Presidential leadership for the good of their family’s future.

America-At the Mercy of the Middle East Islamic Fanatics

by Richard H. Frank

The Islamic extremist faction in the Middle East has turned Obama’s Arab Spring into a charade using the guise of seeking democracy to suppress freedom and impose Sharia Law upon the oil-producing countries in the region.

Those of us old enough to remember the oil embargoes of the 1970s imposed by OPEC understand that our nation’s economy and national security is dependent upon the continuing flow of “black gold” or crude oil from the Middle East.  Unfortunately, over the past 40 years we have chosen to elect representatives to Government that have failed to understand this reality or have caved to the special interests and placed achieving energy independence as something only worthy of lip service.

Only when the price of a gallon of gasoline places a financial burden on the average American do politicians suddenly become indignant over the public protests and seek to place the blame on everything but their own inaction to clear the path to achieving energy independence.

Barack Obama and his Administration of academic neophytes believe that they can appease the radical factions rising to power in the Middle East through diplomatic appeasement.  The events over the past three days with attacks upon our Consulate in Libya resulting in the death of four Americans and the breach of our embassies in Egypt and Yemen have come as a rude awakening to Obama and his Administration.  President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton both know the devastating impact that the cutoff of Mid East oil will have upon the economy and the security of this nation.  That is why they are so adamant in placing the blame for the attacks upon a “YouTube” video allegedly mocking the Prophet Mohammed.

Obama, 53 days before the election, will do nothing that will inflame the Middle East governments of Islamic oil-producing nations and is prepared to apologize and capitulate to their demands however onerous.  That is why he will not withhold aid in the billions of borrowed dollars to these countries under the guise of helping these fledgling governments to take hold as democracies in the Middle East.

The Islamic fanatics such as the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood have Obama by the balls and he will cave to their demands as soon as they apply the slightist pressure.  Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle-East oil-producing countries is in shambles and the boot of the Middle East oil producers is placed firmly upon the neck of the United States as a direct result of the Obama Administration’s failed foreign policies and with respect to achieving energy independence.

Should these oil-producing countries limit their exports to the United States or increase the price of crude oil to extreme levels they will bring this Nation to its knees in a few short months.

Civil unrest, the likes of which never before experienced in this Country would result, even as we contemplated having to go to war to protect our national interests in the oil-producing regions of the Middle East.

Once again, America appears to be the sleeping giant that must be awakened and jarred into taking action to protect ourselves.  The time to wake up has long past and the incompetent leadership in Washington continues to flounder about in endless debate on what to do and how to preserve this Republic.

Whether we realize it or not, America is at the mercy of the Middle East Islamic fanatics holding sway in positions of power inside unstable governments.  Should we fail to act they will drain our financial system and strength by regulating the flow of life-giving oil at devastating prices while simultaneously creating civil turmoil within our civilian population.

Obama is a dogmatic ideologue and will not confront the crisis head on but insists that his policies will solve the Middle East uprisings.  He is wrong and the only solution to the pending crisis is to replace Obama in November and assume a position of strength through new leadership in the White House and Congress dedicated to the proposition of negotiation through strength and quickly achieving energy independence from the Mid-East oil-producing countries.

Time is running out and we can ill-afford four more years of Barack Obama and his failed policies.
