Why supporting a Politician blindly is dangerous. Let policy speak louder than words.

Stop saying, 'blame the other guys,' or 'others would be worse,' if you havn't done the research. These are the same liners as BO's campaigners.

For eg. take a look at BO's record (who by the way isn't a mere puppet; he's close friends with Wall St)

  1. CIVIL HUMAN RIGHTS: He authorized assassinations of American citizens’ w/o trial and pushed for a provision to be codified in NDAA’12 for indefinite detention of American citizens (http://bit.ly/u77kSs, http://bit.ly/rF8fvK). And we all know he broke promises on GTMO and the Patriot Act.

  2. WALL STREET CORRUPTION: BO was the top beneficiary of Wall Street funds (http://bit.ly/58rodJ), then provides them with more bailouts (http://bit.ly/1EYhXs), and then surrounds himself with the very Wall street ppl as his advisors who caused the recession rather than prosecuting them (http://bit.ly/rA8tVN, http://bit.ly/v8NLxa). 8 trillion also given to banks from the central reserve bank under his watch (http://bit.ly/tbjxLN).

  3. ENDLESS WARS: BO's the top beneficiary of weapons dealers, was lobbied by general Atomic (http://bit.ly/tWt4yi) and thus increased use of drones with military spending increased in 2009, 10 and still spends 200 billion dollars more per year than Bush's average military spending (http://bit.ly/tRrGOL); He also funded children armies in Congo and Yemen (http://abcn.ws/vnuXYF) and invaded Libya without congressional approval that ended up helping Al Quada with drone attacks that are known to have severe collateral damage (http://bit.ly/sb40NX, http://bit.ly/uIbA7A)
