To the Editor,
Never mind that Doctor Barber and NAACP Poverty tour is to further highlight Obama’s occupy movement of class warfare. The Surry version of John Edwards’ poverty campaign by Ric Marshall was attended by 20 people from Surry and 15 who got off the bus plus several reporters and a few politicians.
Here is the dialogue that Barber did not really want to hear as we were peaceably over across the street away from the event. Only the people running the state prosper during socialism! He and Michelle really been on constant vacations and golfing when they are not campaigning. Here are some of Obama’s policies so far. Taking over industries with tax payer money and picking winners and losers. Automobiles, banking, insurance, health care, green energy and billions wasted on solar companies gone bankrupt, student loans and the food and transportation industries. Letting the UN lead a carbon tax like he will do if given a second term. No drilling and exploration of our own resources and shutting down coal but giving billions to solar friends who go bankrupt. Rationing of health care and taking over that industry. Heavy taxing of small businessmen making 200,000 who create jobs. Naming czars, which is unconstitutional, to trump the results of the elections in 2010.
Real unemployment numbers are atrocious as are the underemployed. He has taken over the student loan program so he can personally give interest rate breaks for votes. We care about those who are in poverty and want to help them by providing jobs and opportunity. His policies do the opposite.
