I Know Most People Don't Like Change, But....

Source

I am not one to really get into politics and political issues, but to me, the writing is on the wall. We need something different than what is in the White House now. Romney may not be much better, but we need to get out from under the current administration. That is my opinion.

Not voting, as many will do, is not the answer. We need to vote. But please, choose carefully, because in this game of Roulette, the bullet could be anywhere.

I don't want to see a barrage of political rhetoric in the comments section. But simply speaking your mind, as I have, will suffice. Like I said, I am not politically vocal, but I am approaching retirement age, and I am concerned.

We need a change.

God Bless America

If you are nearing retirement age, are you sure about the choices you are about to make. I am in the same category and I have not made a final decision, especially, after the latest Romney gaff.

Either way.....it's a roulette game in my opinion, for what it's worth.

I will not argue that point. Just have to remember the house has the odds in its favor. We just have to figure out which house we are talking about.

We got a change from trickle down economics and lack of regulation of banks, a change from a disastrous and unnecessary war in Iraq, we are seeing the end of involvement in Afghanistan. I am retired and very happy with Medicare, no voucher system run by greedy insurance companies, please. It will take another four years at least to dig out of the mess that Bush made in his awful eight years.

Thanks for taking the whole country down because you think that Medicare for YOU will change adversely.

The only change that will happen to Medicare has already been done by Obamacare $716 billion gone from Medicare.

Many doctors will stop taking Medicare patients, hope that your doctor isn't one of them.

As usual, you have it all wrong ib. My Medicare would not change, but those people undr 55 would pay the price to the greedy people who run insurance companies. The money is not gone, it was moved, it would be gone if Frik and Frak, the wonderboys got elected, but I saw the polls today, so no worries, can't wait for the debates.

I think it's laughable that Obama has a new campaign ad accusing Mitt Romney of DIVIDING THE COUNTRY? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Barack Obama's whole entire campaign and presidency are based on dividing the country. Elizabeth Warren's entire speech at the DNC Campaign was about class warfare---us poor people vs. the greedy rich people. Give me a break!

You can't bring up an opinion that involves politics or religion without spawning controversy. Here in the Deep South it's politics, religion and guns...but somehow here guns and religion are one and the same!

Go figure!

On the campaign trail,Obama is preaching that he wants to build the economy up using the middle class. Somehow the President still hasn't got it right. The US Treasury is short of revenue for the past 4 years, Obama has spent $5.4 trillion over to what the Treasury brings in. The treasury needs revenue, so tax the so called rich more.

I think the people who believed in hope and change are still in denial of what is happening. But most people I talk to who voted for Obama the first time won't vote for him again. When Reagan got elected 49 States went red. Apparently, right now Obamas approval rating is 10 points lower than Carter's. So if he is that much worse than Carter and even has 2 million illegal aliens vote for him through voter fraud, my prediction is that Romney will still win. People understand the economy is wreck. The words from Potus won't change there minds. He had four years to create jobs and restart the economy and did nothing. I think we can kiss old Potus goodbye in this election.

Tink 4 years ago

To be honest, I really shouldn't be posting on this subject, due to the simple fact that I have never voted. I have had 28 years to do so, but never had anyone that I was willing to back for presidency.

There is an episode of South Park that pretty much covers how I feel about our right to vote. It's called; 'Douche and Turd' (in case anybody wants to check it out). If my choices are between a Giant Douche or a Turd Sandwich. Why am I going to waste my time to vote? And picking from the 'less of the two evil' is BS to me. Give me someone worthy of my vote, and then I will.

I'll get off the soapbox now, so someone else has a chance to speak his/her mind.
