Just because you have always voted Democratic, you don’t have to repeat that action. If you have always voted Republican, you don’t have to this time.
I know that sounds elementary, but seriously, I believe most people fall into the trap of believing that those parties are what they are putting in office. It is not true. You are voting for PEOPLE. And who they are does matter. If it doesn’t matter because you believe your party represents your beliefs, please take some time to really think about that and look at history and look at the people currently representing that party. Do THEY represent your beliefs? Better than the other parties candidate?
Mitt Romney is not the same man his father was. His father was a stand up man with his state being his motivating factor. He wanted Michigan to soar like the eagles so he could possibly run for President and use that history to gain his desired position. He was a good man. He made decisions for our state that helped the people who live here. Not the people who hire the people who live here, alone. ALL the people who struggle and all the people who hire and all the people who can’t do either were helped by Governor George Romney’s administration. Did Mitt do that for Massachusetts? Did he make decisions for ALL the people of Massachusetts? Will he do that for our country, if he is elected? Read the history. Make an educated decision.
Barrack O’bama is a democrat. He is also our President, your’s and mine. Like George W. Bush, he leads us all and we are ALL HIS responsibility. Whether you like him or not, he is OUR President. Look at his history. Read what he has done, what he has proposed. I mean read the actual documents, not the news stations interpretations of them. You may surprise yourself with what you find.
You may even find that numbers have been changed by one or both parties when reporting job increases or financial growth or lack of.
Now, most importantly, remember the Congressional behavior over the last 2 years. Remember when you walk into that booth that those men and women signed a pledge within the Republican Party to STOP any and all O’bama sanctioned bills. They promised to pass NOTHING under his presidency to ensure he could be nothing more than a 1 term President. So for 2 years they allowed our economy and our job growth as a country to be secondary to keeping O’bama limited to 1 term. Our well-being or representing our needs was secondary to their political plans. Does that upset you? Make you happy? Make you want to give them another shot? Two years wasted. Much of our dilemma today is from 2 wasted years. Was it worth it to keep O’bama from gaining anything that might have started us on an upward climb?
When you vote, whichever way you go, please get facts. Please take the time to read the government records on voting on the issues and the bills that were passed and those that were not. Vote with education on your side. Don’t let the networks or the cable news people tell you what you think. Teach yourself to find facts.
I believe they all lie or distort facts to get elected, but they cannot change their history of actions. Look there. Make an informed choice.
Just for fun, I’m gonna tell you that I have voted for more Republicans than Democrats, but I still feel for the most part I fall to the Democratic way of thinking. The problem is a lot of people on the democratic tickets aren’t really all that democratic. I have always (and this time will be no different) voted for the person.
I also don’t care about the candidate’s personal lives a whole lot. I like it if they talk about their families, but I don’t care if one or both of them had affairs at some point. I don’t care if they have hobbies or what they are. I do care if they have lived a real and not privileged life. I would love for laws to change so that common people could run equally for the highest office in the land. I would love to have an opportunity to elect a real common man or woman into office. Money should NOT be a qualifier nor should it be a disqualifier. In my dreams…
I am so disillusioned about our leadership, about this campaign on both sides. I am so tired of hearing, reading, seeing what he did wrong, what the other guy thinks. STOP IT ALL OF YOU!
Let’s hear, read and see what YOU have to offer. Tell me why YOU are my man, not why the other guy isn’t. I cannot stand negativity and I don’t need to hear what YOU think is wrong with anyone. I need to hear why I would benefit and my country would move forward with you at the helm. That’s all.
