Are you better off than you were 4 years ago? DNC question this week.

I can't wait to just read a lot of comments from wise Daily Pauler's regarding this question. At some point, I think even a Top Ten list of comments/answers on this question that the DNC this week is asking, should be considered for the front page.

It's comments like this that I just love to read about on the Daily Paul. This should be rich. :-) Enjoy! --

It's almost like asking if...

you have been enjoying all your great health, before you were informed that you will be dying from cancer in a few months.

The country is what is clearly not doing better, and that is where my concern lies.

16 trillion debt as of today, Bill of Rights & the Constitution being tossed aside by both republicans and democrats, overspending & taxing, devaluation of our currency, and continuous wars concern me.
When will the bubble finally burst?

I just hope that we all can find a way to stay the course for liberty in the years to come.

Me, personally?

Yes, things are better for me personally now than they were 4 years ago. My family went from starving and surviving off of WIC every month, to joining the military and being able to afford food and not having to worry about paying rent. I personally have two more kids now than I did 4 years ago. My marriage is doing better because my dear husband is capable of supporting his growing family. I'm also far more educated now than I was four years ago, when I had just barely discovered Ron Paul. Granted, I'm also greatly more paranoid of the government now than I was 4 years ago, but that's most likely another plus.

But my older sister is definitely worse off. Her husband's home business is failing. They're surviving off of WIC and food stamps, and the Obamacare mandates are draining nearly all of their remaining resources.

I don't know about the rest of my family, if they would consider themselves personally better off or worse off than 4 years ago. I'd have to ask them.

Just for the record, we don't like the military life. We're grateful for all that it has done for us, but we don't like the yearly deployments and the way the we don't have the freedom of civilians.
