Sounds likes socialism to me

First, the government over regulates small business and private enterprise, then it offers you new government jobs.

It ignores states rights guaranteed under the Constitution and regulates education.

It controls banks and gives them trillions in stimulus money, but you still lose your home.

Now, they’ll offer you a government mortgage for housing.

They’ll do away with private insurance by offering you cheap government healthcare.

They’ll legislate God out of America and replace him with government dictators.

They send our soldiers to fight for freedom abroad, then sell American weapons to our enemies. But they’ll take your guns away.

They denounce terrorists in foreign countries, then give them millions in aid.

They invest in news stations to control the media, so now we don’t even hear the truth about their lies.

It sure sounds like socialism to me.

 I support the original intent of the Constitution, a small government with checks and balances.

I’m voting for a restoration of morality in society, honesty in the work place, freedom of religion and speech, the right to bear arms to defend myself, the use of our natural resources, free enterprise and capitalism, where I can choose my own job, keep my own money, build my own house, worship my own God, and defend my own family.

I can choose to be charitable and work out my own personal salvation with my own personal God.

Obama is not my Redeemer.

His ideology is not the American way.

 It’s not a matter of Democrat, or Republican, anymore.

People on both sides of the aisle can tell the difference between right and wrong, free enterprise and socialism. Just because we’re poor doesn’t mean we’re stupid.

And we can’t be bough. Get out and vote for a free America under God on Nov. 6.
