Is President Obama Better or Worse for Your Business?

    Is President Obama Better or Worse for Your Business?

    As a person involved with real estate would you say President Obama has been helpful or otherwise?

    I'd say in the long term, Obama has been harmful. Along with the Corporate Party media, he has helped to keep alive the illusion of normalcy and choice, while America is being dismantled.

    Perhaps the worst aspect for the health of the country is the ever-increasing loss of liberty. What value is business if we live in a Gestapo or Soviet-style police state?

    It's now a felony to protest what the government is doing. There have been repeated attempts to plug the last hole in their plans to eliminate free speech -- SOPA, PIPA, CISPA, TPP and more.

    Obama has his "Kill List" which includes American citizens. He signed (and Romney would've signed) the NDAA with its tyrannical, indefinite detention clauses for Americans (no charges, no attorney, no trial, no phone call).

    The Power Elite who run Washington from behind the curtain of commerce (Wall Street, military-industrial complex, big pharma and others) don't care about America or its citizens.

    The second worst aspect for the health of the country is the skyrocketing and Accelerating national debt Bubble. When that pops, and there is no way to avoid it so long as we keep the private Federal Reserve in control of our currency, planet Earth will be toast and America will be ground zero. People will beg for a solution, and the Power Elite already have one in mind -- an RFID microchip that will "solve" all of our problems and keep us safe as slaves to their plutocratic hegemony.

    This RFID event was foretold nearly 2000 years ago in Revelation 13. The "mark" of the evil beast of greed. Anyone who accepts that mark will be condemned.

    That's who Obama is working for. That's the plan of his bosses.

    We've already gone through several of the stages of Germany 80 years ago. Back then, we have only one figurehead. Now, we have multiple figureheads so people think they have a choice. And Germany's economy was limited in scope. The dollar is the global reserve currency. When the Deutschmark became worthless, it mostly affected only Germany. When the dollar becomes worthless, we will have worldwide chaos. And the four horsemen of the Apocalypse will ride.

    The best thing we can do is to prepare for the coming storm, to become more aware and to help others also become more aware.

    Obama's tax plans which will be implemented if he is re-elected, will crush small businesses in America.

    Small business owners are often unfairly grouped with the extremely affluent because of the way they file their taxes. Due to their size, most small businesses file as sole proprietors or partnerships, approximately 85% of small businesses file income taxes as individuals. This means that, while a small business owner's personal income may seem large, the majority of the money is actually funneled directly back into the business, and to it's employees.

    By targeting these individuals, President Obama is not only increasing taxes for more than half of America's small businesses, he is also making it harder for the middle class to be able to find the jobs they so desperately need.

    Small businesses create 64% of new jobs in this country and employ almost half of all American workers. Raising taxes on them won't create a single job, but will cost plenty of them. The president insists that the $250,000 ceiling will only affect the rich, but the Joint Tax Committee estimates that the tax hike will affect over half of all net business income in 2013.

    But this should not come as a surprise, as was seen in the Debate against Romney, Obama clearly lacks a true understanding of how business and the economy works hand in hand. 

    He talks about creating jobs... by hiring more police and teachers... as if that is business.  That's not business, and that's not private sector, that's government.  And to be able to pay for all those government employees, you need a thriving economy and businesses that are willing to hire new employees and increase the wages of those that they already have... this simple concept eludes Obama.

    President Obama will harm our country in the short term and adversely affect the country our children and grandchildren will inherit in the future.
