You Know You’re a Moron If…

We now know the theme of Barack Obama’s campaign in the remaining weeks before the November 6 election.
In an interview with the Associated Press last week he said that Mitt Romney holds “extreme positions.” This is in line with the immediate Democratic Party attack launched against Paul Ryan as a “radical.”
The sad part of this is that people who will vote for Obama still believe what he says.
You can ignore the fact that, under Obama, the nation has been through forty-two months with an unemployment rate of eight percent or higher.
You don’t know that there are currently an estimated 23,000,000 Americans unemployed or who have simply given up looking for work.
You don’t know that there are 45,000,000 Americans on food stamps.
You don’t know that there are 46,000,000 Americans living in poverty.
You don’t know that the Congress has not passed a budget in the last three years and that both houses were controlled by the Democratic Party for Obama’s first two years in office.
You don’t know that Obamacare takes $716 billion out of Medicare in order to fund a law that has twenty-two new taxes hidden in it.
You don’t know that the United States of America is $16 trillion in debt; more than the nation’s annual Gross Domestic Product, the total of all its goods and services.
You don’t know that the Obama Department of Justice sued Arizona to thwart its effort to stop illegal immigration to reduce the flow of drugs and human trafficking across the southern border.
You don’t know that the Obama administration is still covering up “Fast and Furious”, an operation to move guns to the Mexican drug cartels that cost a Border Patrol officer his life.
You don’t know that Obama’s “stimulus” program, a $787 billion slush fund for unions, green energy companies, and other cronies of the administration, has been a massive failure.
You don’t know that Obama intervened to stop the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline even though it was estimated to produce 20,000 construction and related jobs, and provide the U.S. with Canadian oil without costing the American taxpayer a dollar.
After Obama installed pro-union members on the National Labor Relations Board, it ordered Boeing aircraft company not to build a plant in South Carolina.
You don’t know that in May 2012 Obama endorsed same-sex marriages, the first President to ever do that. The next day, North Carolina voters approved a ban on gay and lesbian marriages.
You think it’s a good idea to reduce America’s nuclear arsenal to 1,500 warheads in a world where the North Koreans have nukes, Pakistan has nukes, and Iran is working feverishly to acquire them.
Voters for Obama will ignore the fact that Obama is “transforming” America into the equivalent of Greece and taking the nation over a fiscal cliff.
You can learn more by going to see “2016”, an extraordinary documentary that spells out why Obama doesn’t like America, but don’t expect to find any Democrats in the theatre.
