Support Postal Service,
not other countries
Instead of the public servants on Capitol Hill wasting billions of our tax dollars on nations that prefer to live in the Stone Age, use those billions to save the U.S. Postal Service!

Romney is just a bully, his actions will harm the U.S.
Nobody wants control. We want freedom. We should be allowed to do as we please. But, without controls, the bully takes over the schoolyard. He makes the rules. His rules fit his wants to give him more power and more control.
Our country has become an oversized schoolyard, and the bullies gradually are grabbing control. They have bought our lawmakers, dictated new schoolyard rules and are steamrolling their way to the top. Their goal is to make a “King of the Bullies” president.
If you think we have trouble now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! When most of the money gets into a few hands, (bankers, Wall Street and big CEOs) crumbs for the beggars will not sustain. The actions of the desperate will bring a disastrous revolt and chaos to America.
Understand this law of business: Money to manufacture is of no value if the consumer has no money to buy. Money must move to be of service. Mitt Romney is a big bully with little regard for any of those beneath him, unless they will help him.

Obama is anti-American,
and his words finally show it
“Do you see a man hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him,” Proverbs 29:20. King Solomon’s wise words apply to a politician so eager to persuade people that he will use hasty words in empty promises to get elected.
President Obama recently said, “Capitalism does not work, nor has it ever worked.” Why didn’t Obama say that before the election? We finally are learning what Obama really believes in his heart, and it’s not good news for America.
Free-market capitalism and individuality soon will be a thing of the past. His attacks on capitalism and small businesses prove that. Obama’s real “hope and change” has not been exposed for what it really is: anti-Americanism.
GE outsources thousands of jobs overseas and, for that, is exempt from any taxes. Small businesses create many more jobs here at home and are punished with heavy taxes and many restrictions.
America’s MIAs, POWs and veterans from past wars will have died in vain if we become a socialist-communist nation. They suffered and sacrificed their lives fighting for freedom, not slavery.
The tea party, the courageous governor and the brave voters of Wisconsin have led the way to a government “of the people, by the people and for the people,” once again. America is still a representative Republic.
