Clinton signed into law more deregulation than almost any other president in history. I’m voting Obama.

The coverage of Romney’s 47% speech proves the bias of each of the publications. The New York Times wrote and blogged (in one case mockingly) about how the “47%” are indeed deependent on government: they are old, infirm or poor. The WSJ published a leaked draft speech today that Romney never gave eloquently fleshing out Romney’s views about the welfare state.

My own view is this: Forget about if people deserve it or not, but how can nearly half the people in this country get some sort of aid? How are we to support this giant, ever expanding entitlement programs in the future? About 70% of the federal government budget is spent on individual assistance programs. Whether the welfare state is fair or not is not the point. It’s unsustainable and the programs need to be culled. You can’t federalize everything on borrowed money indefinitely.

1). Clinton didn’t run
2) Since 2009…11,237 new pages of regulations costing $488 billion

How do you feel about Obama’s influence now that he is re-elected?

Who else looks promising in the future?
