24 Reasons To Re-Elect Obama

The following are 24 more signs of economic decline in America. Hopefully you will not get too depressed as you read them....


#1 On Monday, Standard & Poor’s altered its outlook on U.S. government debt from "stable" to "negative" and warned the U.S. that it could soon lose its AAA rating. This is yet another sign that the rest of the world is losing faith in the U.S. dollar and in U.S. Treasuries.


#2 China has announced that they are going to be reducing their holdings of U.S. dollars. In fact, there are persistent rumors that this has already been happening.


#3 Hedge fund manager Dennis Gartman says that "panic dollar selling is setting in" and that the U.S. dollar could be in for a huge decline.


#4 The biggest bond fund in the world, PIMCO, is now shorting U.S. government bonds.


#5 This cruel economy is causing "ghost towns" to appear all across the United States. There are quite a few counties across the nation that now have home vacancy rates of over 50%.


#6 There are now about 7.25 million less jobs in America than when the recession began.


#7 The average American family is having a really tough time right now. Only 45.4% of Americans had a job during 2010. The last time the employment level was that low was back in 1983.


#8 Only 66.8% of American men had a job last year. That was the lowest level that has ever been recorded in all of U.S. history.


#9 According to a new report from the AFL-CIO, the average CEO made 343 times more money than the average American did last year.


#10 Gas prices reached five dollars per gallon at a gas station in Washington, DC on April 19th, 2011. Could we see $6 gas soon?


#11 Over the past 12 months the average price of gasoline in the United States has gone up by about 30%.


#12 Due to rising fuel prices, American Airlines lost a staggering $436 million during the first quarter of 2011.


#13 U.S. households are now receiving more income from the U.S. government than they are paying to the government in taxes.


#14 Approximately one out of every four dollars that the U.S. government borrows goes to pay the interest on the national debt.


#15 Total home mortgage debt in the United States is now about 5 times larger than it was just 20 years ago.


#16 Total credit card debt in the United States is now more than 8 times larger than it was just 30 years ago.


#17 Average household debt in the United States has now reached a level of 136% of average household income. In China, average household debt is only 17% of average household income.


#18 The average American now spends approximately 23 percent of his or her income on food and gas.


#19 In a recent survey conducted by Deloitte Consulting, 74 percent of Americans said that they planned to slow down their spending in coming months due to rising prices.


#20 59 percent of all Americans now receive money from the federal government in one form or another.


#21 According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average length of unemployment in the U.S. is now an all-time record 39 weeks.


#22 As the economy continues to collapse, frustration among young people will continue to grow and we will see more seemingly "random acts of violence". One shocking example of this happened in the Atlanta area recently. The following is how a local Atlanta newspaper described the attack....


Roughly two dozen teens, chanting the name of a well-known Atlanta gang, brought mob rule to MARTA early Sunday morning, overwhelming nervous passengers and assaulting two Delta flight attendants.


#23 Some Americans have become so desperate for cash that they are literally popping the gold teeth right out of their mouths and selling them to pawn shops.


#24 As the economy has declined, the American people have been gobbling up larger and larger amounts of antidepressants and other prescription drugs. In fact, the American people spent 60 billion dollars more on prescription drugs in 2010 than they did in 2005.

We need another Reagan to step up and make this country great again. It has been in decline for awhile. Hopefully someone will fill Reagan's shoes. Otherwise we will end up a North American Brazil.DH


I'll always remember Reagan making quips during his speeches that advisors later said ... weren't in his speech. Reagan stood up for what was right,


and inspired this country. The best memory, is of Tip O'Neil hearing standing ovations during Reagan's speeches, and smiling in admiration.


It was really hard to hate Reagan. I think he was the last president to really believe in America's greatness, and didn't play games with politics...

It is like 1979 all over again.


We have 18.3 of the population receiving their paycheck from Uncle Sam; while 30% of the country is unemployed or under employed. And Obammy wants to raise everyones taxes so he can grow the government.


Soon the Obammy model government will run out of everybody elses money.

High unemployme­nt.

High debt.

High number of foreclosur­es.

High prices of food and gas.


My guess is you would have to be High as a kite to re-elect Obama.
