Do you want to own the government or do you want the government to own you?
I highly recommend you check the Mitt Romney box while casting your ballot if you are a true American who supports a government that should be both of and for the people.
I think it’s time we abolish socialism and get back to the roots of our Constitution. Let’s get back to a democracy, let’s get back to America.
By electing family man and successful entrepreneur Gov. Mitt Romney, America will be restored and not just for these reasons alone.
“I am voting for Mitt Romney because I think he tries to instill the same values that I was raised with and I really like the direction he is trying to take our economy. I believe in the Republican way,” said student Alison Davis.
Mitt Romney stays true to the Constitution when it comes to values. He supports pro-life and same sex marriage.
I believe life begins at conception, not at birth. The unborn child has a right to life and that should not be infringed upon.
Americans have a moral duty to uphold the sanctity of life and protect the weakest, most vulnerable and most innocent among us.
As president, Romney will ensure that American laws reflect America’s values of preserving life at home and abroad according to an article from ABC News.
He also believes marriage is more than a personally rewarding social custom, but is critical for the well being of a civilization. That is why it is so important to preserve traditional marriage – the joining together of one man and one woman.
Beyond values, Romney represents the small business man, and it is exemplified in his tax plan.
Sure, taxes are necessary. However, I believe government should only tax to raise for it’s essential functions
The U.S. economy’s 35 percent corporate tax rate is among the highest in the industrial world, reducing the ability of our nation’s businesses to compete in the global economy and to invest and create jobs at home according to CNN.
With the economy experiencing such hardships it is time to start creating new jobs. Private sectors create those jobs.
With Romney’s tax reform, private sectors will actually be able to afford to hire employees; creating new jobs, and reinstating the economy we once knew.
Let’s not forget about one of the most important issues that I’m sure all Americans are familiar with, money.
“China pretty much owns us because of the severe debt we are in. If Romney knows one thing, it’s money. I’m voting for Romney because that is what this nation needs right now. We can’t afford Obama anymore,” said student Chase Bentar.
As president, Romney’s goal will be to bring federal spending below 20 percent of GDP by the end of his first term according to mittromney.com.
Every dollar of deficit spending is borrowed and what is borrowed must be paid back. Who will the bill be sent to? Us.
We need a responsible president to control the spending because quite frankly I can’t afford Obama’s bills.
When we raise our hands over our hearts and pledge allegiance to the red, white and blue ask yourself what you are pledging to?
Vote for Obama and you can dream the American dream. Or, vote for Mitt Romney and you can actually live the American dream.
