Forum Post: Why I can't vote for Obama

He promised to have an open Government and became one of the most secretive in history. And through NDAA and his secret army turned on the People of this Nation, he is actively trying to dismantle our freedom of speech, assembly and any right that stands between a free nation and tyranny.

why I cant vote for Romney

He is of the opinion that the masses have a place in this country and that their place is as the consumers of the corporations pig slop. Earning just enough to afford said pig slop...or perhaps a little less.

Where's the O-campaigners on this one?

No one could possibly defend either of these parties at the federal level with a clear head.

Post an online poll where you can vote for rule by the people, or rule by the oligarchs.

We now have the ability to do this. Do it now, before these control freaks take away that freedom from us.

I can't vote for Obama because he is hypocrite. His picture should be in the dictionary next hypocrite.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

He is eroding our rights - Free speech, the right to bear arms, and freedom of assembly. He wants to control everything. He is one sick individual. Remember the quote above each time he talks...the media loves this guy...they have to be on his payroll. Wake up before it is too late.

The very first thing that he did was spend a trillion dollars and we didn't get anything from it. I voted for Obama but I find it difficult to believe that the trillion wasted dollars isn't a primary issue of the Republican campaign.

Both candidates have rejected public campaign financing (Obama was the first major party candidate in history since the beginning of public campaign financing to do so) which means that both candidates will have to answer more to the people who contributed the two trillion dollars that the two of them will spend, combined, on the election. As opposed to answering to constituents. So really it doesn't seem to matter very much who we vote for. We're voting for money, either way.
