(CNN) – If you are a friend of Don Unsworth, a Georgia businessman who recently passed away, don't send flowers to the family. Just vote against President Obama in 2012.

That was the message conveyed in Unsworth's obituary, according to CNN affiliate station WIS.

"In lieu of flowers the family respectfully asks that donations be sent to the American Cancer Society, or to the campaign of anybody who is running against President Barack Obama in 2012," said the obituary, which ran in the local newspaper.

Donna Barnes said Unsworth was "not really a big Obama fan," taking issue with the stimulus bill and high unemployment rate.

"We just felt like it was the best tribute we could give to him," said Barnes.

A similar plea appeared in the obituary pages of the Las Vegas Review-Journal in July, only the family of Charlotte McCourt asked readers not to vote for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

    THIS MAN WILL BE HONORED BY GOD FOR DOING THIS. OBAMA IS EVIL, UGLY AND NOT MUCH OF A HUMAN BEING THE WAY HE IS DRAGGING OUR COUNTRY DOWN BELOW A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY......'Twas the night before elections
    And all through the town
    Tempers were flaring
    Emotions all up and down!

    I, in my bathrobe
    With a cat in my lap
    Had cut off the TV
    Tired of all the political crap.

    When all of a sudden
    There arose such a noise
    I peered out of my window
    Saw Obama and his boys
    They had come for my wallet
    They wanted my pay
    To give to the others
    Who had not worked a day!

    He snatched up my money
    And quick as a wink
    Jumped back on his bandwagon
    As I gagged from the stink
    He then rallied his henchmen
    Who were pulling his cart
    I could tell they were out
    To tear my country apart!

    'On Fannie, on Freddie,
    On Biden and Ayers!
    On Acorn, On Pelosi'
    He screamed at the pairs!
    They took off for his cause
    And as he flew out of sight
    I heard him laugh at the nation
    Who wouldn't stand up and fight!
    So I leave you to think
    On this one final note-
    IF YOU DONT WANT SOCIALISM
    GET OUT THERE AND VOTE!!....

    Actually read the Obituary Notice. This should (but probably wont) let Obama know that he has to change direction. Government has far too much control and is bringing our Country to a stand-still. We did not want his "Health Care", we did not want the "Stimulus", we did not want "Buy-Outs", and we do not want "Big Government".

    It is always said that the two certain things in life are death and taxes. With Obama mentioned in the obit – you have both – Mr. Unsworth's passing and taxes (Obama)

    This type of person is the best evidence that we are not doing a good enough job teaching critical thinking in this society.
