Everyone is talking about the looming fiscal cliff and how it is a major threat to the American economy. Let's get the facts straight! The politicians constructed the fiscal cliff as a face-saving measure because they could not balance the budget (Budget Control Act of 2011). They deferred the decision to increase taxes and cut spending to January 1, 2013 in the hopes that they could miraculously come together and find a method to refill the coffers after they squandered the money collected from the American people.

Obama won the election because a majority of the voters believed that he is the best person for the job. His campaign was a wonderful mosaic of carefully crafted sound bites that chastised the wealth creators who made America great while offering platitudes to those who subsist on handouts from Emperor Obama's well-oiled welfare machine.

It has been reported recently that residents in 44 States have filed Petitions with Barack Hussein Obama II that request permission from him for their State to peacefully secede from the Union.

Barack Obama was reelected in a landslide last Tuesday. I supported Mitt Romney and was very disappointed when he lost. Simply stated, there were not enough conservative voters for Romney to win. Young people, women, and minorities thronged to vote for President Obama. I am very concerned about the state of our union and the effect of another four years with a socialist President leading our country. Our economy was destroyed in the recession and we are just starting down the road to recovery.

In the past, I've written several articles on disaster preparedness. Some readers contacted me to answer their questions after reading the articles. I hope that they were able to complete their preparations and were ready when Hurricane Sandy hit. Over the weekend, I watched as many people scurried from store to store to purchase water, food, and other emergency supplies. Our local supermarket did their best to keep items in stock, however they could not keep up with the initial demand. The secret to disaster preparedness, as many now know, is to prepare well in advance of a disaster.

As Election Day nears, it is time to carefully review the results of Obama's first term as President of the United States. Our economy went into a tailspin at the beginning of his administration. After almost four years, the economy remains in a shambles. If Obama is re-elected, the chances of a recovery are minimal. Unemployment is at a high point with over 15 million people out of work. In an attempt to cook the books, the administration considers that the official number of unemployed people is only 12 1/2 million.

As part of my pre-election analysis of the candidates, I realized that the Obama administration has failed completely. When he took power, President Obama blamed Bush for the situation he inherited. After 3 1/2 years of failure, he continues to blame Bush. Our President refuses to accept responsibility for the economy. As a result of his lack of leadership, he has made this economic recovery the worst in modern history. As the election approaches, he is pounding his chest taking credit for the economic turnaround. This month, the economy grew at the rate of 1percent a year.

On occasion, I have difficulty coming up with a topic for my weekly article. This week, after many hours of drawing a blank, I decided to write about the constitution and the Fifth Amendment. It is the Fifth Amendment that grants the right to own private property to each and every one of us. In doing my research, I was intrigued by a story about a woman in Detroit who had a squatter take over her home while the homeowner was away for an extended period. The squatter simply moved in to the house as if it were hers.

Election coverage is saturating the airwaves. No matter what channel I watch, I am inundated with political messages. Each party is making promises that they cannot keep. Yet they continue to spew forth a stream of political nonsense that proves the old adage "baloney baffles brains". Both presidential candidates speak in glorious generalities yet offer no details on how they will implement their plans. When will the voting public awake and stand up to these tricks that get professional politicians re-elected even though they have failed us miserably?

Our economy is in a technical recovery, yet we are not experiencing the expected growth that normally comes with a recovery. Our corporations have performed well and have accumulated hordes of cash. Unfortunately, as long as President Obama is in office, many corporations will not expand in America. Instead, they will continue to keep their money overseas. Depending on the statistics used, there is between one and two trillion dollars sitting in corporate accounts in other countries. Income taxes have already been paid on these funds in the countries where the money was earned.
