This November is the most important vote

Vladimir Putin, after college in 1975, began a career with the KGB, where he remained until the collapse of the USSR in 1991. Then upon entering the political arena, he soon became president of Russia.

In 2009, the pot-smoking, liberal, community organizer known as Obama became president of the United States of America. His list of achievements include, well, what? He has been successful at reading a teleprompter and, in my opinion, putting America in debt and in a downward spiral from which recovery is doubtful. America's world and financial status is still falling. His promised change, with consent of the House of Representatives and Senate blocking, has increased our direct debt to 17-plus trillion dollars.

Having some trouble with a trillion, and not fully understanding that number, I did a bit of figuring, attempting to make my mind comprehend exactly what it meant. I understand one second, so, if my math is correct, one billion seconds ago it was 1981. One trillion seconds ago it was about 29,700 BC. For some of you, BC means Before Christ. Multiply one trillion by $17.3 trillion divided by 325 million and that is how much each person in America owes. After becoming aware of what a trillion is, I am sorry I found out.

Not through yet. The above is debt secured by you and me. Add the unfunded debt, Social Security (a misnomer if ever there was one), Medicaid, Medicare, Obamacare, welfare etc., and the combined debt balloons to over $120 trillion.

I am scared, and I hope you are, too. November of this year may be the most important vote we have ever cast. I hope and pray we get it right, for the little ones.
