Answer these questions, then go out to vote on Nov. 6

Here are some questions that I would like the American people to really think about and wish someone could come up with a solution. My solution is to vote on Nov. 6.

Our country is going in the wrong direction. Why can’t our military personnel get their absentee ballots in order to vote before election day?

Why do they have all liberal moderators for the debates?

When they came out with the unemployment figures, why aren’t the people that are not working and no longer seeking employment being counted in those figures?

All Americans should see the movie “2016 Obama’s America.” What an eye opener!

Why isn’t there a law that everyone must have a photo ID to vote? It is so easy to get an ID card. If you can’t drive, someone will take you just like they take you to vote!

Can anyone explain why they passed Obamacare before they knew what was in it? If you had a home built for you and the contractor gave you his contract, would you sign that contract without reading it?

When our ambassador, who was killed in Libya, asked for more protection, why did the Obama administration refuse to send them?

Why did Obama go to Las Vegas and campaign and raise money instead of coming back to Washington to start an investigation?

He kept saying it was an anti-Muslim video that caused the destruction even though the next day it was confirmed that it was an act of terrorism.

This tells me that he was more interested in politics and getting re-elected than in finding out all the facts. “Let’s get on with the fund raising” is his motto!

Just look at the economy, the number of people out of work, and the small businesses that can not afford to hire more people, because of Obamacare.

Remember Obama patting the knee of the Russian diplomat saying “after the election I will be more flexible.” and refusing to meet with Israel’s Prime Minister, the best ally we have?

He’s downsizing our military so that we will be more open to attacks from our enemies. How could anybody vote for a man who is tearing this country down rather than listen to the people who know how to build it up? Talk about stupidity! Or is it deliberate?

One big question to ask yourself and be honest in answering it is, “Are you better off now than you were when his highness Obama took charge of your life”?

Do you think the deterioration of our country is because Obama does not have the smarts to solve the problems facing all of us, or do you think his performance is deliberate?

  • President and Obamacare: Who needs Congress?

    Being a fellow from a small town like Cumberland I don’t always really understand what’s going on in Washington. But I have watched a few houses being built over the years. I even helped some with one house, but my brother fired me from that work pretty quickly, mainly because it was his house being built.

  • It’s a secret It’s a secret

    Could someone enlighten us about why not even the names of the two entities bidding on development of the Footer Dye Works building can be divulged?
    A Times-News article about the bids included an explanation from a lawyer for the attorney general’s office about the need to keep the names and other information secret at this time. Despite that, the logic of not divulging at least a little more information escapes us.
