Seventeen trillion dollars, this will be our debt by the time President Obama finishes his first term, and if he is elected for another term our deficit could be over $22 trillion.

We cannot afford President Obama for another term. Let us give him a pink slip instead of decreasing the number of men and women in the military. Please note that he has taken away billions of dollars from the military.

Four years ago he said that we should not be mudslingers. Now he is doing
that in his desperate bid for reelection. If he gets reelected, who is he going to blame for this poor economy that we have now.? He will have to blame himself, as he currently is creating a financial crisis in our country.

We do not want to go the way of Greece and Spain , etc., who are in such financial troubles.

President Obama has a glossy booklet agenda on what he is going to do the next four years, and it is the same old agenda he had the last four years, and this stimulus has not worked.

Get out and vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and also Bobby Schilling to bring us change. After the debates, we can see that Mitt Romney is a genuinely honest, hardworking, and caring leader. If you did vote for Mr. Obama the last time, try a little sublimation syndrome and/or introspective illumination.

If you want to know what these words mean, stay tuned, I'll explain later.

B. Ben Johnson,
Cambridge
