A sucker born every minute

Early in the 20th century, showman P.T. Barnum is said to coined the phrase: "There's a sucker born every minute."

This last election has proven this man to be correct.

Fox commentator Bill O'Reilly was also right when he said, "Fifty percent want something, and Obama is the one to give it to them."

What happened to American pride?

What happened to the work ethic and the desire to work for what you want and the pride of achieving what you worked for?

It was also said Barack Obama won 71 percent of the Latino vote. He didn't win that 71 percent, he bought those votes, or most of them. There are 9 million American citizens unemployed. He sold out the legal citizens by issuing a million work permits to illegal immigrants. That showed a complete lack of concern for the citizens of the United States.

Perhaps you should start praying that you will not have to say goodbye to what was once the greatest and most respected country this world has ever known. You may have to prepare to become like the poor and indebted countries Spain and Greece. Or maybe we will be known as the United States of Mexico.
