It's The Math, Stupid!: 7 Devastating Facts About 2012
Breitbart News ^ | December 27, 2011 | Wynton Hall

Posted on 12/27/2011 9:43:31 AM PST by redstateone

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...

After reading “You can still trust the communists to be communists”, it all makes sense.

2. The real unemployment rate is a jaw-dropping 11 percent.

From what I’ve read, it is closer to 18%

5. Every seventh person you pass on the sidewalk now relies on food stamps.

Many of them also get free cell phones, buy lottery tickets and cigarettes, drive newer made SUV’s with Obama 2012 bumper stickers plastered on them and demand that the tax payer give them even more freebies.

7. Under President Barack Obama, every fifth child in America now lives in poverty...

...and many of them are overweight while the government along with the media scream about starving children in America.

Good points.

These statistics are just incredible.

I don’t see how Obama can get elected
with these kinds of facts. But I fear he still might.

You?

I agree, but do you think Obama
can still be reelected with these
7 facts (and lots of others) out
there and known to the voters?

Or maybe that’s the issue: many
do not KNOW these 7 facts (and the others).

Ask anyone who voted for “Hopey Changie Dork” what ‘change’ they were expecting, and if they thought he meant socialism or not...

and why no EVER ASKS HIM what kind of “fundamental change” he has planned?

I agree. I think Obama gets reelected because too many people are:

1) overly dependent on government handouts
2) agree with the OWS crowd
3) buy hook,line and sinker all the media propaganda
4) believe socialism will work this time because we have the ‘right leaders’
5) as election day gets closer, the threat of racial violence grows

JMO...

Throughout my life, I have been told and seen stories of poverty.

Yakov Smirnoff had a christmas special back in the 80s. In it, he returned to his boyhood home in Moscow. He told stories of families taking in other families and sharing firewood. Sharing food. It was because the families were so poor that they had NOTHING.

My mother worked at the Jewish Home for the Elderly in Connecticut. This experience enriched my life more than any other. I used to meet with her before or after school - and socialize with the elderly. These people had tattoos on their arms. The stories they told me are etched in my mind forever:
Many young people had no jobs. There was no assistance available for them. They would latch onto employed people and do whatever chores they could do around the house. Laundry, cooking, cleaning. Anything to help. The adults with jobs would go to work to support kids that weren’t theirs. Even adults.
Even those with jobs couldn’t spend any money. They were helping friends and family.

When I see “1 out of 5 people you pass” what I really see is someone who is depending on someone else. Kids moving back in with parents. Couples moving in together. An employed person taking on the heavy weight of suddenly feeding twice, or maybe 4 times the amount of people they should. The “1 in 5” observation doesn’t mean that 20% of the population is hurt. It means that EVERYONE is hurt 20%. I help my friends and family out as much as I can. I am self employed and should be planning vacations with my new wife, or planning a baby room. But I care for my mother (Just about 100%) and I take in friends, relatives, and even help out ex-roommates.

The “1 in 5” thing means WAY more to us than the statement suggests.

It is quite easy to understand how the RaceMarxist gets re-elected.

Statistics, and an abject lack of basic economic cognition on the part of the vast majority of people, don’t matter a whit as long as the Communists keep the tune playing in their fiscally insane game of musical chairs.

The sheit hits the fan when the music finally stops and someone is left without a chair. THEN the dominoes start to fall.

You're suggesting that Freepers are mindless because they dislike Romney? Frankly, Romney is the one sure bet to lose to Obama and you seem to be suggesting we nominate him?

Unghhh......

I don't believe the Cloward-Piven strategy ever fully addressed a solution for the second amendment. Oh sure the Gomnt can always confiscate all firearms you say. I don't believe that is possible in this country. When it gets really bad the “bitter clingers” will survive and the parasites and tyrants will die off.

Beck seems to have completely lost it in terms of political analysis. The left is always smug. They always act like they are in power, always act like the are winning the next election, and that their candidates/officials are far superior to ours. Seven years ago they acted like Kerry was some sort of superman, and gore before that. Hillary and Edwards were also portrayed as beloved and brilliant, with no evidence.

Of course they are going to act the way they do. It is the norm amongst the leftists.

My theory on Romney is that If I wanted to Vote for Obama I would vote for the Democrat one rather than the Republican one.

1-5 are excellent observations suppressed by the liberal media.

But 6 and 7 are meaningless, because the definition of “poverty” shifts like the sands of the Sahara, and cannot be counted upon for any rational discourse. According to the latest leftist definition, 50% of the population is in poverty. As high as the unemployment numbers are, do you believe that 1/2 of the population is out selling apples on the corner?

My thought exactly. The next president will probably nominate 3 judges to the SCOTUS. We can’t let 0 get another term.

Absolutely true, everyone says obama is dumb and has no idea what he is doing, but these statements are based on the premise that obama is trying to help our country. Obama is very smart, but his intentions are the destruction of America the Beautiful.

We'd better hope and pray that Mitt Romney doesn't win the nomination, because all he'll do is throttle back Obama's agenda by a few mph.

Poverty today is what middle class was in 1960.

Your average “poor” person today has : multiple color TV’s, cell phones, air conditioning, 1-2 automobiles and has controlled rent. Many of these things were considered luxury items fifty years ago.

I am not talking about real poor people that live on an Indian reservation out west or in some coal mining town in the Appalacian Mtns.

A lot of the poor people today are just working the govt. system.

many do not KNOW these 7 facts (and the others).

Greta had some upcoming college graduates on her show and asked the most pressing issue. All said the economy, but one kid from George Washington University summed it up. No matter what he would vote for Obama, and if the economy got worse he would have no trouble blaming it on the Republican Congress.

Makes me even more confident of my theory.

That the GOP doesn't want to win the White House in 2012 - because it's too late to escape another "Great Depression" - and they would prefer a Democrat be in office, so they can lay the blame squarely at 0bama's feet.

actually, no.

i won't vote for a republican progressive any more then i would vote for a democrat progressive. the RNC is littered with them and they need to go.

if it takes another round of dem progressives, so be it. the people should be forced to understand who they are, what they are pushing for, and what their lead will produce

as for 0bama... if he gets back on the ballot, that's pure failure on the part of the RNC 'leadership'

he's not eligible and no amount of stupid sauce can change that
