Obama's 2nd Term Will Look Like...

Wondering how another four years with Obama will be? Check out my post!

In past debates, President Obama expressed how he will improve America and get us moving forward.

Americans who don't follow the elections may like or dislike the President solely based on what they see and hear in these debates.

If you're unsure about the future of our country during the next four years, it might look like this based on Obama's policies:

Creating Jobs at here in America:

Manufacturing at home improves communities and leads to innovation and creates higher-waged jobs.

To enhance his recovery which began when he saved the auto industry, he plans to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs by the end of 2016.

He will also increase American exports.

Taxes:

The president cut taxes for American workers and has provided 18 tax cuts for small business.

By cutting spending and increasing revenue, the deficit (national debt) will be reduced by $4 trillion over the next decade.

$2.50 tax cut for every $1 the revenue increases.

Increasing taxes on households making over $1 million—etting them give a little more since they can afford to.

Ending wars to rebuild America:

Our President ended the war in Iraq, and plans to end the war in Afghanistan by 2014.

He plans to use 1/2 the money we save by ending these wars, to build our infrastructure; by proposing an independent fund that will gain private donor dollars, we can start new construction projects based on how badly we need them and how they will positively affect our economy.

Investing in Clean Energy:

Obama plans to cut oil-imports in half by 2020; by decreasing imports by 5.5 million  barrels a day and reducing our dependence on foreign oil.

By doubling fuel-efficiency, consumers will save $8,000 at the pump, create jobs, and save 12 billion barrels of oil.

If we use our 100-year supply of natural gas, 600,000 jobs by the end of the decade can be supported.

Opening up 75% of our gas and oil resources in the Gulf and Arctic can improve our own energy safely and cautiously without spills.

Pushing Education:

Investing in education creates opportunities for all Americans and is the surest path for the middle class.

Our president is setting a goal to be world leaders in college graduates by 2020.

He plans to cut tuition and fees in half over the next 10 years which saves students money.

Bring together community colleges & businesses to properly train 2 million Americans for jobs now and in the future.

He will push to save jobs for teachers, reward great teachers and improve teacher effectiveness.

Recruit 100,000 math and science teachers.

Health Care:

Obamacare benefits every American—it provides access to preventative care without Co-Payments or deductibles. Medicare is then strengthened for our seniors and young individuals will receive the proper health insurance they need.

Women will stop being charged more than men for the same coverage.

20 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY !!!

JJ: It takes an idiot, such a Bush, to keep a Village entertained, but to truly wreck a nation, it takes a team. When you say Busy was smart enough to have competent people around him, then I ask you: Who was minding the economy while his national security team was busy assailing our privacy and civil rights? There is plenty of evidence to support the position that the loosening of certain banking regulations during the Bush presidency lead to the crash in the housing finance market. But let's not dwell on the past because as you say, that was 4 years ago, plenty of time for a competent chief executive to have cleaned up the mess even though any economist will tell you it that historically it takes at least 10 years to fully recover from a financial collapse brought about by a banking crisis. For the moment I offer for your consideration this article in salon concerning the men Romney has been putting around him as economic advisers: http://www.salon.com/2012/08/08/mitt_romneys_economic_disgrace/ And should you consider salon to be partisan, then here's a piece from the WSJ: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204778604577241583152450486.html What's the expression? The past if prologue.

Here's a short current video to watch - "Bain-owned factory workers plead w Romney to stop plan that will send their jobs to China", Oct. 19, 2012. http://current.com/shows/the-young-turks/videos/bain-owned-factory-workers-plead-with-romney-to-stop-plan-that-will-send-their-jobs-to-china This kind of destruction and disregard for your fellow citizens will create karma that follows one. Profits at the price of people is money that will haunt those profiting in the short term far longer than one can possibly imagine. A global economy is a myth. People live in real places, and we are bankrupting our own real country where we really do live. This election vote for someone and something you believe in, and who believes in you as an American citizen. Wish China well, but champion yourself and your own people first. Anything else will fail you, your fellow Americans, your country, and ultimately, your world. Stand for something worth living for. Vote Libertarian for one election. Gary Johnson, Libertarian candidate for President, wants to change tax laws so that American business has an incentive to remain and return to the USA. Start living for freedom, right here in your own country. Vote Libertarian for one election. Live free. http://www.garyjohnson2012.com/

Racman63, once again some good points. Now I ask you what you think about Obama increasing federal employees by 38,000 and wanting to hire some 16,000 IRS Agents to look at your health care/ bank accounts? How about all of these Czars? Or all of the Presidential Directives on "taking over" transportation hubs, aircraft, boats etc. in the event of martial law? How about expanding the U.S. Government's role in communication interceptions and adding more buildings and floor space to the agencies that conduct these operations? Have you heard of this FEMA Youth Corps? There's a lot out there to digest but we all select what we want to believe. Thanks for the comments Sir. BTW, anything from the WSJ is pure political manure.
JJ October 20, 2012 at 07:04 PM
@Sharpie ; good selection but unfortunately Mr. Johnson will split the vote and we might end up with Barrack Hussein Obama again. I wish Mr. Johnson had a better chance; I really do.

Just too many shady givaways to companies that disappear shortly afterwards. Too much reluctance and stalling by the administration to release information is not an indication of honesty and integrity. Too many half truths especially in statistics Obama's alignment with openly anti American and Marxist individuals. Really take a close look at whatever history is available on this man. Keep an open mind, take no political position,be objective and then ask yourself if he should be the leader of the free world, President of the United States and Commander in Chief.
