Another four years?

If one wants to be entertained, read no further, but to be informed please continue. My letter has many statements that lack complete sentences due to space. Following are hard, cold, in-your-face facts not to give Obama another four years. All are very important, not trivial issues.

How do we avoid bankruptcy with a $16 trillion debt and a president who wants to spend even more? Do we want a European socialist country of redistribution of wealth and entitlements that are unsustainable? A nanny state with far too many on government doles? Obama's 83 welfare programs America's biggest expenditure, even greater than Social Security or Medicare. Out-of-control regulations and the constant threat of higher taxes.

That's just for starters.

Corruption, fraud, distortion, lack of transparency and accountability, even lies, like never before. If it was Bush, there would be impeachment on many fronts like Fast and Furious, national security leaks, the Libyan Benghazi cover-up, billions of taxpayer stimulus money going to cronies, not jobs. Americans died in some of these scandals, all bigger than Watergate.

Obama shredding our Constitution such as eliminating the work requirement in welfare, amnesty to young Hispanics for their votes, not enforcing immigrations laws, no balanced budget for four years by his party. Obama's partisan chief justice of Supreme Court declaring Obamacare constitutional is an American tragedy.

Ramming Obamacare down our throats. Legislation that will ruin our health care with higher taxes, adding to our deficit, forcing doctors to retire and turning medical decisions over to a non-medical bureaucratic board, all passed through corruption and no transparency.

Average household incomes have fallen by $4,200. A realistic unemployment rate higher than 11 percent. From 23 million on food stamps to 47 million. Thousands wanting work giving up and leaving the work force. A decrease in full time to an increase in part time work, College grads can't find work. Escalating single female parent unemployment.

Printing money unscrupulously, which devalues the dollar or government just puts it on a credit card; totally unsustainable. Obama didn't close Gitmo, doesn't have transparency, did employ lobbyists, didn't cut the deficit in half as he promised.

A foreign policy not working at all on many fronts. Appeasement to Muslims not working. Sanctions in Iran not working to deter nuclear development. Syrians dying by the thousands while we do very little. Throwing Israel under the bus while siding with Palestinians. Giving up our sovereignty to world organizations like the United Nations. Obama did not give command to take out Osama, Panetta did. Why decimate our military? Al-Qaida not diminished.

Abortion on demand. Taxpayer monies to Planned Parenthood for abortions. Obamacare for abortions. Usurping our religious freedoms with OC birth control mandates. Gay marriage. Says we're not a Christian nation. No "Creator" in our Declaration. A secretary of education promoting homosexuality in our schools. Safe sex, but not abstinence? A culture of lies and half truths in our government.

Too much time golfing, "The View," Letterman, entertaining Hollywood celebs, and family vacations. Abusing the TelePrompTer. More than 160 re-election fundraisers. How much of this do we pay for? Too few press conferences, Cabinet meetings, intelligence briefings. Who's running the country?

Alternative energy (wind, solar, ethanol, battery) a bust. There is no global warming. Thirty-six green energy companies getting federal handouts bankrupt or laying off workers. Traditional energy (oil, natural gas, coal) production stymied by Obama.

In summary, these are just some of the reasons he doesn't get my vote. Why anybody's? I challenge Obamists to refute me, looking at the big picture and not nitpicking.

Obama failures are endless.
