Republicans and Democratic Needs to Reason with Our 44th President! For the Sake of our Country

 



 

It’s funny, how the pass is finally coming to fruition of all the politicians’ abuses of power coming to light. Now Americans want to throw a fist at the very President (Our 44th President) who is trying to fix this clumsy problem, before America truly goes into a 2nd great depression, if we don’t stop to rethink our thoughts on the matters. And I’m surely talking about mainstream.

This is One Reason Why We Need to Vote 2012 and Keep 44th President in Office.

It is unfair Middle Class Americans has to foot the bills and not Millionaires and Billionaires
