Only in America

By Matt Yutzy

The following is a post one of my friends had on Facebook 

If we chose to have another four more years of Obama, it will be the only recorded
instance in history of rats swimming towards a sinking ship.

1) Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a
$35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

2) Only in America could people claim that the government still
discriminates against black Americans when we have a black President, a
black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black.
12% of the population is black.

3) Only in America could we have had the two people most responsible for our
tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles
Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax
cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

4) Only in America can we have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah
and have the New York Times and MSM react by fretting that Muslims might be
harmed by the backlash.

5) Only in America would we make people who want to legally become American
citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of
dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into
the country illegally just become American citizens.

6) Only in America could the people who believe in balancing the budget and
sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as "extremists."

7) Only in America could you need to present a driver's license to cash a
check, rent a canoe or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

8) Only in America could people demand the government investigate whether
oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when
the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company ( Marathon Oil) is
less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

9) Only in America could the government collect more tax dollars from the
people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a trillion dollars
more than it has per year for total spending of $7 million PER MINUTE, and
complain that it doesn't have nearly enough money.

10) Only in America could the rich people who pay 86% of all income taxes be
accused of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any income
taxes at all.
