I am a small business owner and have now been in business for 22 years. I normally employ twenty five people however I am currently down eight employees as a result of the great recession which started for me in the fall of 2008. I am deeply concerned with the direction the current administration has taken our country. It seems to me that blaming the past administration for everything that goes wrong and accepting credit for everything that goes right is the new definition of leadership in our country. I don't believe Obama is bad for country because he is a black man I believe Obama is bad for our country because his policies will destroy our system of free enterprise. Our nation is now on a course of borrowing our way to prosperity. Americans daily are trading their freedoms for the promise of the great " Nanny State " ! I am often reminded of the words of Thomas Jefferson who once said, " a government big enough to give you everything you want is powerful enough to take away everything you have " As we now approach a 51% voting majority who pay no federal income tax ( the good guys ) now enjoy benefits courtesy of the 49% percent who pay all the federal income tax ( the bad guys ). I feel sorry for all those who live l cradle to grave on government hand outs. This is nothing more then slavery of the human spirit. I am also reminded of another of our founding fathers, The elderly Benjamin Franklin was be escorted from the constitutional convention when a onlooker called out to him, Mr. Franklin what form of Government are we to have ? Benjamin Franklin replies " A Republic.........if you can keep it ? "
