Barrack Obama should be honored for his endeavor to alleviate the plight of handicapped and impoverished Americans; on the other hand he has proved inept in handling partisanship in Congress and other Presidential duties.
I believe that far right extremists and/or the aristocracy of large moneyed corporations are a far greater threat to the constitution and laws of our country and that we must vigorously guard against these groups taking control of the Senate and the House and never allow them to shut down our Government again.
Smart Canadian born immigrant, up and coming leader of the Tea Party and Presidential prospect of the Republican Party Cruz was elected U.S. Senator from Texas in 2012.
A rich, arrogant elitist, well educated by two of America’s finest Educational Institutions, Harvard Law School and Princeton University, yet has little understanding, or consideration for, America’s poor working class that cannot compete with the huge advantages that the ultra rich receive; Welfare doesn’t even come close… and no working person should ever be forced to live in poverty.
He stands, with the Tea Party, for limited Government that would radically cut Medicare and eliminate crucial Departments that would benefit big business and his personal agenda but stifle jobs and advancement opportunities for minorities and low income workers.

But mark my words, there will be change coming to Washington.
As Donna Brazile, a noted news commentator, put it “Change is gonna come”.
For better or for worse, the President of the United States is everyone’s President… yours and mine… and as citizens we have an obligation to support the office of the President, the integrity of our Government and show some respect for the person that won the election by an overwhelming majority of electoral and majority votes.
