Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance
in response to reader comment: all the facets of Obama that the mainstream media ignores

Submitted by Sunshine Girls (United States), Oct 25, 2008 at 21:36

You are absolutely right that we will have a worse economy if Obama is going to hand out money and allow illegals to get all they need. As an immigrant myself I had to pay lots of money to come to this country and my husband had to sign papers that I will never be a burden on this country..This is what will happen here if Obama takes over: I have friends back in my homeland that pay 80% in income tax, that is right!!!!!And he also has the priviliege to pay 25% sales tax on food, phone, hair dresser, stereo etc...

He also pays about 12 dollars a gallon for gasoline(government tax it like crazy), and about 40 % tax for his energy(the government put sales tax on top on the energy tax)..Unemployment has been over 10% the last 15 years and the health care is disastrous..One years waiting list for bypass if you are lucky, about 9 month waiting list for the gallbladder to be removed....my husband almost died waiting...

This is the priviliege they have to live in a socialist country...They have no extra money to spend, the rich are leaving the country, in fact our biggest export is educated and wealthy people!! No pride in our country, jealousy is big, and not many go to church...It is a competition to have what everyone else have, you have to fit in or else..Companies do not hire anyone full time since it cost too much, most companies move to other countries to operate because it is cheaper..People have no value.All the same, which is against human nature.

Obama will destroy this country. How are the people going to survive when the taxes go up? They have it hard now, and the companies are not going to hire...they are probably leaving the country or close down.

Submitting....
