Librtybell, you are the one who should wise up. Your statements are wrong and just an excuse for what is really happening in America. Obama won because the people that voted for him think they are entitled to the fruits of my labor. I just want to be left alone. I make a living and taxes are taken out of my salary.

He is a fraud and YOU will suffer under his administration. On the other hand, I will survive because I have never needed anyone but myself to take care of myself. YOU ARE DELUSIONAL ABOUT OBAMA!
