Needless to say,the vote you  cast in November will determine the course this country will take for quite some time. National security,the economy, class warfare and the very identity of America will be at stake. 

Will you want a President who works at ending wars, or one who threatens new ones (Romney's remarks enabling, almost daring Israel to strike at Iran), a President who believes in the Bush economic doctrine (feed the rich and it will trickle down, or one who seeks to bolster a strong and vibrant middle class)....will you want aPresident who believes in America, or one who wants to see the auto industry go down in flames, one who believed we should let foreclosures happen and let the market place take care of it....will you want a President who wants to re-establish oversight to prevent greed from taking us down again, or one who believes in a naive Darwinian economy where the strong survives while others suffer.

Let's take the Romney tax plan for instance, and the opinion of the unbiased Tax  Policy Center of the Brookings Institute.... "Absent any base broadening, the proposed reductions in individual and estate taxes specified in Governor Romney’s plan would decrease federal tax revenues by $360 billion in 2015. These tax cuts predominantly favor upper-income taxpayers: Taxpayers with incomes over $1 million would see their after-tax income increased by 8.3 percent (an average tax cut of about $175,000), taxpayers with incomes between $75,000 and $100,000 would see somewhat smaller increases of about 2.4 percent (an average tax cut of $1,800), while the after-tax income of taxpayers earning less than $30,000 would actually decrease by about 0.9 percent (an average tax increase of about $130) due to the expiration of the temporary tax cuts enacted in 2009 and extended at the end of 2010."

The question is...will you vote in your best interests, or vote to bring back the  Bush  economic doctrines that nearly brought on another Great Depression? Will you vote for a balanced attack towards our economic woes (raise revenue by ending the Bush tax cuts for millionaires with spending cuts across the board) or will you vote for a deja voodoo plan that has been tried before and failed? 

Will you vote for a leader and a statesman, or the gaffe machine you  have been reading about over the past two weeks...a man who once again brought the term"Ugly American" back into vogue? In an attempt to bolster his virtually non-existent foreign affairs experience, he  somehow managed to become a world wide this who you  want to lead your country? You had better think long and hard, my  friend....
