The Re-Election Campaign begins
Today, President Barack Obama officially announced his re-election campaign had begun.
What he needs to be aware of is that he is NOT going to receive automatic approval simply because he’s Barack Obama.
For many of us, we will not give a single penny to his campaign until…
1) Guantanamo Bay prisons in Cuba are shut down, as promised.
2) All the troops are troops are home from Iraq and Afghanistan.
3) At least ONE, if not a couple of hundred of the Wall Street bankers responsible for the economic mess are sent to jail.
4) American citizens need to have guaranteed access to affordable health care. We wanted the the public option, and we certainly didn’t want a “mandate” if the costs remain sky-high as set by the various profit-driven HMOs.
Demanding that every citizen has a “mandate to pay for health insurance” is like “asking homeless people to own homes.” Kinda hard to do when the money is tight, ya know?
