This past weekend Michigan GOP leaders met in Boyne Mountain, where presentations were given on messaging, technology, Election Day operations, campaign finance, ground game, and the Growth and Opportunity Project. The democrats have opened the door in many areas for us to take advantage. Specifically, in Michigan we had 400,000 sportsmen, 4,200 Vets, and 248,000 conservatives that did not vote in the last election – we need to reach out to them.
There are a lot of statistics that clearly show that the U.S economy is unhealthy, and we should expose this. I believe that President Obama is masterminding an economic collapse, with the intention that people will forever depend on government for their future. For example:
- In Obama’s first term he racked up more debt than all the presidents from George Washington through Bill Clinton . . . combined (and is on pace to rack up more debt than all of his predecessors, combined, before next year’s mid-term elections). The national debt increased by over 50% from where it was when George Bush left office, and now exceeds the entire output of the U. S. economy (the G.D.P.). Under Obama, the national debt grew, in one day, more than the entire federal deficit for all of 2007.
- According to economist John Williams of Shadow Stats, if you factor in long-term discouraged workers and those that could only find part time work, the real unemployment rate is currently about 20%. Over 100 million working -age Americans don’t have jobs (this means more dependency on government; therefore, dependent on Obama).
- According to the census bureau, household income dropped $4,000 during Obama’s first 4 years in office. Currently, almost half of all Americans don’t have even $500 in savings.
- Under Obama, only 65% of all men of working age have jobs. In 1950 (under Truman), it was 80%. In 1980 (under Carter), less than 30% of all jobs in the U. S. were low-income jobs. Today, at least 40% are low-income jobs.
- In 1965 (under LBJ), one out of 50 Americans were on Medicaid. Today it’s one out of 6. Medicare faces an unfunded liability of $40 trillion, or over $328,000 per U. S. household (completely unsustainable). One in three of Americans are getting some sort of welfare . . . and that does NOT include Social Security or Medicare.
- Polls show that 83% of all doctors are thinking of retiring because of ObamaCare, while Obama wants to add 30 million more new patients. (Like in Cuba, you’ll get some care, but it’ll be much worse quality care than you have now).
Obama’s economic ideas started with his anti-colonialist father and his communist mother, flourished in his Indonesian schooling (Muslim), and blossomed in his college years under the guidance of Richard Cloward and Frances Piven – both Columbia University professors (who jointly developed a strategy to collapse the American economy). All of this predisposed Obama towards socialism and dismantling the United States as a unified nation.
When things get really bad from excessive government spending, inflation, and lack of jobs, people will again accept more taxes and more welfare in hopes of economic salvation, but it only causes more dependency on government. (Recall the story of how one captures wild pigs.) We have forgotten the lesson from our own history that socialism does not work.
Obama is a brilliant strategist, but his philosophy will result in a failed economy and an impotent nation. I believe he is purposely ruining us fiscally, morally, militarily, and constitutionally. He spends excessively, supports infanticide/abortion/gay marriage, has cut the military, has more “czars” than Russia ever did, and bypasses Congress at every opportunity. It is imperative that he and his staff’s strategies be exposed as extremely hurtful to the people of America. We can’t even depend on him to protect our soldiers and citizens abroad.
Hopefully this encourages you to get involved and use some of these statistics to change the course of America. We can’t sustain what Obama is handing us. Talk to your friends and neighbors. We can change this nation, one person at a time. Grassroots has never been more important than now.

So many questions about Benghazi
With both CNN and CBS now airing video questioning the Administration’s handling of Benghazi, I think it’s safe to say that so many questions remain about the Benghazi attack, from reports that Special Forces were told to stand down, to questions about who was involved in rewriting talking points at the White House and State Department. The key new disclosure is that senior levels of the White House and State Department were closely involved in the rewriting of the talking points. Previously, Obama administration officials had strongly suggested that the talking points were developed almost exclusively by intelligence officials. … The biggest unknown is whether the “building leadership” in the State Department who objected to the initial talking points included anyone on Clinton’s immediate staff. (One presumes that nit-picking over wording would not have risen to Clinton’s level.) Certainly, someone senior made a call to the White House that resulted in quick action.
The Big Fail: Calling Obama’s Bluff
Even though Obama and Democrat party leadership insists that their hands are tied on the FAA furloughs, according to a Bloomberg Government analysis of the agency’s staffing data, “The Federal Aviation Administration has more than enough air traffic controllers to manage furloughs without flight delays.” According to The Wall Street Journal, despite proposals to cut less essential Federal Aviation Administration expenditures, “Making smart choices about federal spending would spoil the fun of creating flight delays and then blaming republicans.” Obama wanted the sequester to hurt so that he’d have an excuse to raise taxes and increase spending. That’s why the White House made sure FAA furloughs meant flight delays, instead of finding ways to reduce the FAA budget smartly and responsibly. Now that the White House has caved and allowed the FAA more flexibility, they’ve proven Republicans’ point: it’s possible to avoid painful across-the-board cuts by making smarter, targeted spending reductions instead.

The Big Fail: Lack of Common Sense
If Democrats thought flexibility was important for the FAA’s sequester cuts, why not other areas that are unnecessarily hurting Americans? Democrats have thus far resisted bills giving them the ability to choose, within sequestration’s broad parameters, how to allocate the cuts. The White House issued a statement of administration policy that threatened to veto a Senate bill proposed by Pat Toomey (R-PA) and James Inhofe (R-OK) that would provide flexibility on the sequester. Obama: “”I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending.”

Taxation: American Style – Inefficient, Costly, and Unfair
Americans don’t like things that are inefficient, costly, or unfair. Our federal tax code seems designed to be all three, a failing exacerbated by a patchwork of economically distorting subsidies and preferences found throughout the code and elsewhere. The federal tax code has become a morass of different rates, deductions, credits, exemptions, exceptions, and phase-outs, and it changes every year. The end result is that no one understands how it all works. But our nation is hurt by more than just high rates and an unfair and complex code. We also suffer from economic distortion caused by subsidies, grants, and other preferences in the code and elsewhere. We need a tax code that is flatter, fairer and simpler.

Public unaware gun violence down nationwide
To watch the local news casts every night (let alone national coverage of tragedies such as Sandy Hook), you’d think that gun-related crimes are up all over America. Of course, the gun grabbers at the federal, state, and local levels want you to think that, as it makes it easier for them to convince you to surrender your 2nd Amendment rights. The truth is that gun violence in America is down sharply from its 1993 peak.

Woman Gang-Raped By Muslims, Jailed For 8 Months Because Her Rapists Weren’t Her Husband
Here’s a dirty little dark side of living under Sharia Law that the Muslim community doesn’t want you to know about. Under the strictest interpretation of Sharia Law, unless the perpetrator confesses, a rape cannot be prosecuted without four adult Muslim male witnesses. Absent that, well, the victim will be prosecuted for having sex outside of marriage.
