Admiral Balllzak.  Please turn to page 2 of your American citizenship study guide.  There are more English expressions you'll need to pass the test.

We don't dislike our country, we dislike the man who is destroying it. We agree that the POTUS is the most powerful man in the world, but we do not appreciate those who attribute the greatness of his office, to the individual. The people who "spoke" elected a socialist elitist who gained favor by manipulating the greed and envy of the public by targetting the "have-nots" against the "haves" under the charge that it is Government's job to go after them for their wealth, take it, and give it to the rest of us. I'm poor as heck, but I do not think it is fundamentally democratic to attack a minority group- (yes, the wealthy are a minority group deserving equal protection under the laws..). It is robbery. Especially when 52% of Americans do not pay any taxes. We have an increasing number of tax takers, and fewer tax makers. So lets all cheer for the fall of democracy as we know it. Hoo-rah....

I 100% agree Jesus Christ is a lot!!! more powerful then these clowns , because Jesus is the only savior and the ruler of all!!! However the reason the U.S is failing cause the elite leaders of this world which by the way put obama in office not us the voters, they did, are using Obama to fail this country so they can start their new world order plan. They know what they are doing, but sorry for them cause God has a different plan and soon we will see. Put your trust in GOD not man.

They didn't give all his best attributes like the BEST LIAR, BEST THIEF, BEST DECEIVER, BEST DISBARRED LAWYER, BEST IMPOSTER, BEST INFiLTRATOR, BEST FRAUD, BEST KENYAN, and many more that EVERYONE knows about but afraid to talk about!  He'll probably get another Nobel Peace Prize, knowing the STUPID PUBLIC!  Semper Fi.

Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Franco, Lenin and Mao all had massive popular votes and won every election, political and popularity category too. It didn't make them right, intelligent or even competent leaders. They squandered and destroyed every free market, free will and free choice resource they had for depotistic big government utopian societies that harmed people. I wouldn't be bragging or even proud. You people in the media just don't know, but you will one day.
