Socialism is not an American value.

President Obama has led our nation to the brink of economic collapse, imposing larger government with higher tax rates, less individual freedom.
U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos wants to regulate free enterprise when the solution to job creation is deregulation and lower taxes. It is not possible to regulate the poor into prosperity by regulating the wealthy out of prosperity.

Oppression of religious and economic freedom is not an American value. Obamacare is modern day tyranny disguised as compassion for the masses. It defiles individual rights and liberty. It violates the separation of Church and State and the most elementary laws of economics.

Illegal immigration is not an American value. Foreigners infiltrate our borders with willful intent to violate our laws and engage in fraudulent practices as a means to obtain undocumented employment and/or social welfare programs paid for by American workers. Obama refuses to answer the plea of our states, e.g., Arizona, and enforce federal laws to protect American borders. The Illinois House Democrat majority of the Illinois House led the vote to permit illegal foreigners a valid driver's license.

"When half the people get the idea they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to take what they earn, that is the beginning of the end of any nation!"
