Decision not to re-elect President Obama is easy

Editor, the Advocate:

Approaching the election, I've paused to consider the important items that should be of interest to most of us. For those who voted for hope and change in 2008, I hope these are not the changes you wanted.

We have the worst debt/deficit in our history. Unemployment is high, and we have a record number of people on food stamps. Taxes and gas prices are up. Yet, the incumbent still blames those who came before him for all this, taking no responsibility upon himself. Who will he blame for the last four years if he is re-elected?

Most important to me, our religious liberties and beliefs are being threatened as never before. Faith-based organizations are being forced by the federal government into policies that are at odds with their faith. The definition of marriage as being between a man and a woman has already been revised by some states. Tragically and horribly, abortion is still legal. I suppose an immigrant's right to insurance is more important than the right to life for the unborn.

There is nothing about our incumbent's record that deserves any more consideration. I'm Christian and Catholic, and this decision is easy.
