Mr. Sowell has hit the nail on the head again in his succinct op-ed. Before he ran for President 4 years ago, Mr. Obama's record was thin but well established as far left being voted the MOST LIBERAL SENATOR in 2007 based on his record. Voters ignored the facts. Many have been led or pushed into federal government dependencies through President Obama's and Senator Harry Reid's failures. If they vote for him in a hope of continuation of such public welfare, they will go down with the ship of state. If they cut the federal purse strings, return to accepting individual responsibility, and elect a like-minded team that knows how to clear the way for massive job growth in the private sector, we have a chance to change direction for the better.
