What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

An Obama supporter has asked me a question...

The question...

"You think Obama is a loser, gee he is the President, what are you?"


Here is my answer...

In a DEMOCRACY people who respect DEMOCRACY never are so arrogant to suggest that the President is somehow better or more important than anyone else.

Who am I? I am one more American citizen fed up with Obama's wars and his dedicated support for Wall Street's attempt to reap greater profits by making us pay for these dirty imperialist wars abroad through austerity measures here at home which are making us all poor.

Had Obama been honest enough to run on an agenda of what he really intended to do he never would have been elected president in the first place--- he would have been a loser in the 2008 Primaries.

We now need a Primary Election where Obama's ideas and his agenda will be challenged by someone honest enough to state their real ideas for real CHANGE--- at least this is my HOPE.

I do agree with you that Obama is the President; and this is a big part of what is wrong which now needs to be corrected.
