They are well informed.
If you want jobs, vote for Romney:
“Some level of unemployment will always be present in an economy as industries expand and contract, as technological advances occur, as new generations enter the labor force, and as workers voluntarily search for better opportunities. This is why most economists agree that there is a natural rate of unemployment in the economy (usually 4??”
10/1/11 demoinregister.com: By December 2006, Romney’s last full month in office, it [the unemployment rate] had fallen to 4.7?
[i.e., "full employment" = no job growth]
An Obama TV ad says Massachusetts under Romeny's governorship fell to 47th in job growth, but the truth is this:
6/7/12 factcheck.org: "The ad states that job creation in Massachusetts “fell” to 47th under Romney. That’s a bit misleading. Massachusetts’ state ranking for job growth went from 50th the year before he took office, to 28th in his final year. It was 47th for the whole of his four-year tenure, but it was improving, not declining, when he left."
6/8/12 USA Today: "As we wrote in an item this week when an Obama ad claimed Massachusetts “fell” to 47th under Romney, in the 12 months before he took office, the state ranked 50th in job creation. That ranking remained 50th during Romney’s first year in office, but by his final year, it had improved to 28th."
Clinton at a campaign event in Ohio today: "Governor Romney's argument is, 'We're not fixed, so fire him and put me in.' It is true, we're not fixed. When President Obama looked into the eyes of that man who said in the debate, 'I had so much hope four years ago and I don't now,' I thought he was gonna cry. Because he knows that it's not fixed."
If you want this, vote for democrats:
The democrat party has always embraced Republican Teddy Roosevelt’s “New Nationalism.”
In a speech on August 31, 1910 in Osawatomie, Kansas TR laid out his agenda for a welfare-state, including:
-A National Health Service
-Social insurance, to provide for the elderly, the unemployed, and the disabled
-Limited injunctions in strikes (unions have always been a privileged class in welfare/socialist states)
-Federal income tax
-An inheritance tax
As to how his agenda would affect our Constitution? He couldn’t have cared less:
”This, I know, implies a policy of a far more active governmental interference with social and economic conditions in this country than we have yet had, but I think we have got to face the fact that such an increase in governmental control is now necessary.”
Democrat President Wilson (1913-1918) said, “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand.” He may have been the first democrat to appreciate the potential use of multiculturalism (“If it’s white or American, trash it!”) in deconstructing the Constitution, saying, “No nation is fit to sit in judgment upon any other nation.” Obama put it this way: “Every nation is exceptional in its own way.”
Democrat President Roosevelt “let it all hang out” in his speech before Congress on January 11, 1944:
“We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights...” [which included]:
-The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation
-The right of every family to a decent home
-The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health
-The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.
LBJ’s Great Society became the largest redistribution of wealth program in our history. Obama is trying to “outperform” LBJ.
It is only because of the Internet, talk radio and Fox News (all non-existent a generation ago!) that we are learning the truth about the democrat party and how effective it has been in replacing our Constitution with its welfare state model:
-2/4/10 Gallup poll: 61?f liberals have a positive view of socialism.
-6/2/11 Gallup poll: 71?f democrats favor re-distributing wealth.
Those who believe government should have more control over our lives: Republicans 15?Independents, 29?Democrats 67?
-Now they have national health care, the foundation of all welfare and socialist states.
Ben Franklin: "When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic."
Thomas Jefferson: "A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.”
