Fred Thompson Teaches Obama A Lesson

So I'm watching the Republican convention tonight and had a few thoughts. I also watched the DNC and found that it was smothered in negativity, self loathing, and doubt for our country's future. The RNC of course was the other way around. This is because Republicans as a whole love this country far more than Democrats do as proven by our support for our military, economy, and conservative foundation.

The best moment of the night for me was when Fred Thompson spoke. He was my choice for our nominee but decided to drop out in January so as not to muddle the vote any further because he believed he hadn't gained enough support by that point. Fred tells it like it is about Obama raising taxes:

"We need a President who understands that you don't make citizens prosperous by making Washington richer, and you don't lift an economic downturn by imposing one of the largest tax increases in American history.

Now our opponents tell you not to worry about their tax increases.

They tell you they are not going to tax your family.

No, they're just going to tax "businesses"! So unless you buy something from a "business", like groceries or clothes or gasoline ... or unless you get a paycheck from a big or a small "business", don't worry ... it's not going to affect you.

They say they are not going to take any water out of your side of the bucket, just the "other" side of the bucket! That's their idea of tax reform."

I love ol' Fred and really wish he could have gained more momentum.

Basically we can't afford a President like Obama. It's almost as ridiculous to not vote as it is to vote for Obama. If you're a third-party nutcase who believes the lie that a fringe party can do anything good for this country so be it. But really think about what you're doing by wasting your vote or not voting at all. Also can anyone tell me why they're voting for Obama? The words 'Change' and 'Hope' are not allowed. You need to actually tell me what he's going to do to make this country better. And 'Not be like Bush' is also an invalid answer because it's stupid and ignorant. Good luck because you can't do it.
