    @Brother Chuck - Man you are one angry soul, but God loves you anyway and in the end you're going to be good, maybe not Great, but good. In the meantime, here on earth we have to pay for the things we do, and when you don't have it then you have to say "oh well, I guess we'll have to do without." That's personal responsibility. But you'd rather we just not worry about the budget, cause that's no fun. Let's take care of everybody, regardless of the choices they make in life. No worries Chuck, put it on my tab, and let's all sing kumbaya. Love ya buddy. Keep up those comment from Florida, and please, oh please never forget us here in this lost provincial little land of Utah. Ah shucks, we're just a bunch of bumpkins that could only dream to be blessed with your worldly wisdom. Teach me Chuck.

    Waste of a hundred bucks. Obama already said this week in a campaign email that he will be outspent.

    "We need programs for people. Business already has a lot of friends."

    Please tell me you at least understand that it's 'business' (aka: the private sector) who funds our 'programs for people.' We are $16,000,000,000,000 in debt. How much more funding do you really want? Do you not get that the money isn't endless? You can't keep shaking the goose who lays the golden egg and not expect it to die. Is this really that hard to understand? The money has to come from somewhere. The programs don't pay for themselves.

    I am actually old enough to remember when our president was named Eisenhower, and I think this will be the dirtiest campaign in my memory!

    Have we become a nation that "needs" Washington to "care" for us? The Federal Government was never charged or authorized the duty to be our nanny; that job was left to the States and to the People. The primary duty of the Federal Government is to protect the United States from enemies, foreign or domestic. Six of the seventeen duties that we have authorized to the Federal Government deal with the military. None of the other eleven duties involves being our nanny.

    Some many think that I'm cold hearted. Ask my eight kids and my twenty-two grandchildren if I'm cold hearted. The point is, I know the difference between family and government. I know that America's greatness depends on the greatness of its people, not on the greatness of its politicians.

    When government stays out of the way, we can do great things. Romney knows the proper role of government. Obama only knows how to be a community organizer whose chief purpose is to conquer by dividing this nation into a caste system.

    Now, pardon me while I go to Mitt Romney's web site and make a small donation.

    That's too bad. We'll all be worse off if he wins. We need programs for people. Business already has a lot of friends.

    "Romney would be a disaster for the United States and its people."

    I disagree. I'm not for Romney or Obama, but I don't think Romney would be a disaster for the US. I don't think he's any different than Bush and many other previous presidents.

    In my opinion, Romney offers a better direction for financial reasons. Obama offers a better direction for civil reasons.

    If Romney had a heart for gays and homosexuals I would consider voting for him. But he can't separate church and state so he loss my vote a long time ago.

    Obama cares about people, all people, but just doesn't get the financial realities. Health care and all these blanket programs sound great on paper ... until none of us have any paper if you catch my drift.

    I'm sure he'll REALLY enjoy seeing President Obama inaugurated for his second term in office.

    Actually, I don't want either of them. I just don't want Romney a heck of a lot more than I don't want Obama. Romney would be a disaster for the United States and its people.

    From an average of $140k per day to spike at $4,600,000 in 1 day (from 47,000 people) after the Supreme Court's announcement simply shows how passionately negative Americans feel against Obama-care. In fact, almost every poll taken since it's announcement shows the majority of Americans opposed to this forced government intervention into our personal and private medical lives. Socialism has never worked before and won't be any different this time. However, it does have a good chance of succeeding in bankrupting our country.

    To Schwa: Why feel the need to advertise that you're not very good with money? Most people prefer to keep their personal weaknesses private. Also, the reason Obama's camp wouldn't give any specific numbers is because they didn't really exceed the amount Romney took in. Otherwise, why wouldn't they?? But apparently they took in at least $100.

    I'm going to be perfectly clear: Mitt Romney has promised that if elected our next president, he will repeal Obamacare on Day One in office. Immediately after the Supreme Court ruled to uphold health care reform yesterday, Romney reminded his supporters: "When I'm President...Obamacare will be over."

    If Romney gets his way, 105 million Americans could see their lifetime caps reinstated, and more than 3.1 young Americans could be booted off their parent's plan and could again be without insurance. Up to 17 million children with preexisting conditions could, once again, be at risk of being denied coverage, and insurance companies could once again drop you if you get sick.

    That's why the Truth Team's work to spread the truth on Obamacare is so critically important.

    Luckily, we have the facts to stop Romney, and the progress I just laid out to back us up.

    Mitt Romney's organization said Friday morning it had raised $4.6 million online, and Obama's operation, while not revealing specific numbers, said they had surpassed Team Romney's announced total.


    Among Obama's donations yesterday is the $100 I gave.

    Obama claims victory. That's nice.

    Where's the Job's Romney?.

    Rich Republican elite Congress sends student loan and infrastructure package to Obama that are to create GOP job's?. Companies across Florida collect millions of dollars up front to create jobs, then miss their marks some by a little, some by a lot. In many cases, they balk at giving the public its money back. They include Metlife in Tampa, Piper Aircraft in Vero Beach, and Redpine Healthcare Technologies in the Panhandle. The grants in question come through the Quick Action Closing Fund, one of 13 job-creating incentive programs that Florida offers and the program that has awarded the most money in the last five years more than $200 million. Governments have awarded incentives to companies for years to encourage them to hire, but historically, they demanded the companies create jobs and invest corporate dollars before getting a tax refund or credit. This gave taxpayers some protection. But the timing is changing. Competition for jobs is so fierce that state and local governments nationwide are choosing to turn over cash in advance.
