Angry Voters in 2009; Elections in 2010

Since becoming President, Barrack Obama has angered a lot of Americans. I’m angry that terrorists in Afghanistan now have the right to remain silent and the right to a court appointed attorney.  I’m also angry that the Obama administration is spending trillions of dollars we don’t have. This summer I’ve noticed a large and growing number of Americans are angry about something. For Americans looking to join in the fun and get angry, there’s a plethora of reasons to choose from this year.

 

Many Americans are angry that former Vice President Dick Cheney isn’t yet behind bars. Other Americans are angry that we are winning the war in Iraq and doubling down in Afghanistan. I guess these angry Americans would rather we lose the war on terror as payback for America’s past sins. As a patriotic American, I’m angry at these angry Americans.     

 

If you recently lost your job, you are angry. If you are facing home foreclosure, you are angry. If you are one of the 5% of Americans paying more in taxes this year, you are angry. If you voted for Obama and you now realize he can’t deliver on a whole host of campaign promises, you are doubly angry. With job losses, home foreclosures, and the national debt reaching new highs every month, we are fast becoming a nation of very angry people.

 

2010 will be the soonest angry Americans can act. I predict they’ll take their anger out at the ballot box. With all the dark clouds gathering on the political horizon, 2010 will be the year of the “perfect storm”.
