Let Them Eat Gay Marriage

Barack Obama is still counting on the votes of the gullible youth of America, despite his flagrant abuse of that particular demographic. While campaigning back in 2008, he promised them everything. Remember all the free "stuff"? My 22 year old gets the bedroom in our basement, has huge student loans with the added bonus of a high interest rate, and can't find a job in her field. Obama promised America's youth transparency and fiscal responsibility while recklessly spending an average of 4 billion dollars per day that has to be borrowed, creating gigantic entitlement taxation and spending that our kids will unsuccessfully work all their lives to pay for. He hides behind presidential privilege, refuses to release information on his background, and continues to blame his predecessors for his failures as president. Laughably, he now accuses his opponent in the 2012 presidential race of blaming others and of hiding things! Hey kids, please tell me you see something wrong with this picture.

College grads today have ridiculously high unemployment rates and studies have shown that graduating into such a weak economy has a long-lasting detrimental effect on the earnings of youth. This is the payoff for their loyalty to Obama. Hope and change has become hype and blame. That does not an economic recovery make. Instead of fixing it, he focused on creating the gigantic government takeover of the nation's health care system and now he wants to raise taxes. A lot. Using a squirt-gun to put out a raging forest fire is unlikely to have a successful outcome.

Today, we find out that Obama has gone behind the back of congress and stripped the work requirement out of the welfare program. This action might help Democrats in the long run by ensuring continued dependence on the government dole, but I, for one, hope that our youth are smart enough not to fall for that trap that guarantees multi-generational poverty.

I know that some of the president's social agenda is popular with our youth. I get it. Compassion. Tolerance. Charity. I get it. Hopefully our kids see the big picture before November and realize that their standard of living for the rest of their lives is at stake. I don't know if Romney will go down in history as a good president, but I am fairly certain that Obama's legacy won't be very positive and shiny, and it is already marked as being downright hostile toward our youth.
