    As we enter 2012, the presidential candidates would do well to wrap their minds and messages around these seven mathematical facts:
    1. Every day, the U.S. government takes in $6 billion and spends $10 billion. This means that every day the federal government spends $4 billion more dollars than it has.
    2. The real unemployment rate is a jaw-dropping 11 percent.
    3. Every fifth man you pass on your way to work is now out of work.
    4. College graduates are now 34% less likely to find a job under Obama than they were under President George W. Bush.
    5. Every seventh person you pass on the sidewalk now relies on food stamps.
    6. The ravages of the Obama economy now mean that more Americans live under the federal poverty line than at any time in U.S. history since records have been kept.
    7. Under President Barack Obama, every fifth child in America now lives in poverty.
    These are not partisan jabs, manufactured statistics, or ideological swipes. These are mathematical facts. And the presidential candidate who can most clearly and credibly articulate them—and their concomitant solutions—is bound to win.
    Why? Because these facts point toward the solutions America must implement to avert the kinds of economic and social upheaval seen in Europe and elsewhere.
    Start with mathematical fact number one—deficit spending. No person, family, business, or nation can spend more than it takes in and remain sustainable; it defies the simple laws of math and reason. And yet even as Washington hemorrhages $4 billion more than it has each day, citizens have watched as the farce that is “Super Committee” has proven it cannot even shave $1.2 trillion from America’s $15 trillion debt...

    I thought you didn't deal in hypotheticals.

    What was your purpose in posting that ? Did jesus spend his time taunting, and hiding ?

    Your worldly thinking cannot ever challenge someone who thinks like Christ. Being born again changes the natural thoughts of the flesh into the spiritual thoughts of our saviour Jesus. You stated what you say are facts, not hypotheticals. Since you love the politics I encourage you to run and change the world according to your will.

    You just are not worth talking to. If you won't address the FACTS in the O/P, whay say anything at all ?


    It is against the rules of the board to post off-topic.

    Probably not as much as you love yourself.

    If the O/P has any flaws in it, you should address them, otherwise, there is nothing to discuss.

    Thanx, Matt. I did forget to link to the source. That is against the rules. I hope nobody thought I was claiming the work for myself.

    I read it originally on pjmedia.com/instapundit

    Could be several reasons

    In fact, I have done so myself. I am concerned about these issues that Curtis brought up.

    Part of the problem is that all these so-called entitlements (food stamps, WIC, ect) are now considered necessities - when in fact they should been at most a temp assistance program.

    But when the masses are all receiving these "benefits" than the masses will continue to vote for reps who keep voting for theses destructive policies.

    In the 2060 Democratic National Convention, Barack Obama Washington (Grandson of President B H Obama) has just given his acceptance speech....

    "Our country is trying to recover from her problems, I realize that we have had Democratic Presidents for the past 52 years, but we are still trying to clean up the mess that we inherited from President G W Bush in 2008."
