So much has happened in the past four years here in America and around the world. Where do we go now? With elections just two weeks away American’s have a huge choice to make when decided the path our nation will travel down the next four years. Many individuals we talked to have given up hope and don’t want to vote in this election cycle.
Why do these individuals not want to vote. Some of them claim they voted for Obama and are disgusted in the way he has handled the economic crisis along with the foreign policies which make us look weak.
Others say they don’t like the Republican challenger because he has made so much money in the private sector he may not work for the middle class as he has stated on the campaign trail. They fear he will be for big business and Wall Street types neglecting the individuals who are really struggling in this economy.
Regardless of your position, party affiliation or thoughts and ideas of where this country needs to be there is one thing that is sure, if you don’t vote, your voice will not be heard and will be silenced. Remember Florida was won by Bush by just under 600 votes and many have express concern because they failed to vote in the Sunshine state.
Have your voices heard and get out and vote. Find the candidates who best represent you and your views in the local elections, in the State elections and in the Federal elections. There is too much at stake not to vote…

Yes folks, “Anyone is better than what we have now” is the response I am receiving from individuals all across this great land we call America. With the 2012 election cycle moving into gear many individuals are dissatisfied with the President and his policies.
Since Obama has been elected our country has spiraled out of control with expansive increases in government spending, the apology tour and the continuation of wars in the Middle East of which he campaign to stop the wars over there not extenuate them with complacency.
Remember he received a Noble Peace Prize for his prolific thoughts on a war free world or just the fact that those on the panel that hands out these prizes hated Bush so much they just wanted to show him a thing or two about just how powerful they were. Thus a million dollar bounty just for thinking about peace.
Now two years later we have amassed 5 trillion more dollars in debt with a 4 trillion-dollar budget being proposed by the White House. I don’t want to beat this thing to death but I have to say we borrow 43 cents out of every dollar we spend so the individuals across the country want someone new that will reduce the spending and size of the bureaucracy.

Today the President released his 2012 budget an amazing 3.7 trillion dollars. During his state of the Union speech he stated he understood the country had a spending problem and in the words of Representative Frank Guinta, ‘This may be Valentine’s Day, but the $3.73T #budget proposal by #POTUS is no love letter to the American people!”
We are in a severe recession and still the President can not understand you can not spend more of what you don’t have to bring about prosperity to a nation. He has proposed an increase in taxation over the next ten years to raise an additional 1.6 trillion dollars over the next 10 years. CNN stated the President has two choices that will address the problems we face, “He can fix it or ignore it” In the piece they decided he has ignored it. http://bit.ly/fHL7Mh
The budget will drop to 1.2 trillion next year but will balloon to 104% of GDP by 2015. This is not the way to stimulate an economy that is bloated and in need of reduction. Congress has stated they will cut the budget by 100 billion, a mere 2% of the budget when we need to look at cuts across the board by no less than 500 billion each and every year until we contain the uncontrolled spending that has eroded the quality of life for all Americans.
The CBO estimates there is 10% fraud and waste in every government program which is not being address as of yet on the Hill. Every member knows about the problem but no solutions are being presented to reel in the corruption. Patriot Express Radio has offered a solution that would help alleviate the problem. Quite simple pass a law that makes it a mandatory 10 year prison sentence for any individual or corporation that commits acts of fraud when dealing with any government agency. If an individual knows when they decide to steal our tax dollars by submitting fraudulent bills will land them in jail for 10 years many of those individuals would not attempt these deceitful practices.
Second, we must hold those accountable in Congress when appropriating funds. The funding must have a paper trail just as businesses have to track where the money is going and how it is being spent. The funds must not be sent out in bulk but released in segments to the receiving parties. When the parties show how the funds released to them were spent then they receive the next allocation until all criteria has been met.
We the People are tired of our tax dollars being wasted and are now monitoring how our government is spending them. The Congress have to fulfill their promises made on the campaign trail to reduce the nation debt and the size of the Federal Government. They must understand trillion-dollar deficits are no longer going to be tolerated here in America. So get out the pencils and start cutting to save our nation and give future generations of children a country they can be proud to be a citizen of that is working to be fiscally responsible from here on in.

The news going around the nation after the election is that Sarah Palin caused Democrats to keep hold of the Senate. Now, the question is will she campaign for the Presidency in 2012?
After spending the past year and a half dealing with political issues I am confident the answer is NO. Here is my observation on this issue.
Palin is setting up a coalition by backing conservative candidates and speaking at rallies to help those individuals win elections. She needs a strong coalition of candidates that will align themselves with her and what she stands for.
To date the candidates she backed have won just over 60% of the campaigns. Palin will continue to travel the country backing candidates with like minds until there are enough elected into all offices both State and Federal to fulfill her quest for the White House.
When Palin has built her coalition of conservative representatives she will announce her candidacy for President of the United States and only when the candidates of her choice are in office.
I believe 2012 will be to early for Palin to announce her intentions but 2016 will be the probable date she could have enough like-minded representatives elected to help her win the campaign across the nation.
During these next few years Sarah will hone her skills to deal with the media. She will learn more details on all aspects of the economy, foreign affairs and what will need to happen to return the power to the states, away from the Federal Government.
Stay tuned for the outcome of this chapter on Palin vs Republican. We will keep our eyes peeled and bring you news when it happens.
