A Conservative View

Praying that Donald Trump can save Americas freedoms!

It’s Just the “FACTS”

 We were promised “CHANGE” and boy did we get it! 

(1)Any rational and sane individual understands “FACTS” and do everything possible to stop the madness.

(2)The irrational and insane ignore the facts and blindly follow the “Pied Piper” (Obama) as he races at warp speed to “Socialize” America.

If after reading these “FACTS” you still believe we are headed in the right direction, you have identified which of the two catagories you belong to.  C Brewer 

 

Some numbers that I thought everyone should see.  No, we cannot blame Bush for this…this is all on Team Obama’s watch.  If you support him, then ask him why…if you don’t, then ask yourself why.   We are losing America …it is up to us to correct the problem.

Two years ago, Barack Obama was inaugurated as president of the United States .   Are you better off today than you were two years ago? Numbers don’t lie, and here is the data on the impact he has had on the lives of Americans:

Just take this last item:  In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation’s history.  Over 27 times as fast!  Metaphorically, speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane 27 times faster . . . It would be doing 1,755 MPH! 

This is a disaster!
