The Big Dogs in this Campaign
It would be an utterly tragic for the middle class, working poor, and lower income Americans should Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan get themselves elected President and Vice President respectively. It means that the majority of Americans would've fallen for the biggest okie-doke a.k.a. bait and switch in recent US History, since the declaration made about Saddam Hussein's W.M.D.'s and his intent to use them.
And we all know how that turned out, one of the two longest lasting military engagements in our nation's history and GOD only knows the true count of tragic losses of lives & limbs of our young men and women in uniform. I believe that as sure as I'm writing this piece, if elected Romney would be the biggest & only special interests Presidential puppet in modern American History.
Surely he and Paul Ryan would undoubtedly push through their tax plan to benefit the rich, like himself. He'd add that unpaid tax cut to the deficit then try to blame President Obama for not doing it sooner. Then the Grover Norquists', Sheldon Adelsons' and the likes of the Koch Brothers will reap their returns on investments that they invested in the Romney Campaign, at the expense of the middle class, working poor, and lower income wage earners. Slashing the American social safety net that is Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security for people 55 years old and younger leaving them with an inadequate health-care voucher system. And for people like me that have worked and paid into the system by serving in the military as well as in the private sector job market, to get the proverbial shaft (short end) in the deal.
But come hell or high water I'm banking on the average low income, working poor and middle class American's to use their heads and not vote against what's literally in their best interests. Plus I'm also counting on the big dogs both President Obama and Vice President Biden, to re-establish their dominance in this race to move this country forward. Also I AM almost 100% certain that Vice President Biden will call out Paul Ryan on their platform (lies, gaffs, & missteps) tomorrow night! He and President Obama will be bringing us closer towards a budget surplus, like the one Republicans got when George W. came into office in 2000.
Some pundits speculate that if elected, Romney would more than likely start another War in the Middle East because his foreign policy advisors would tell him it's a necessary thing to do. Plus he could make a boatload of money completely off of the books of course. Because we the American people don't really know where or how much of the Romney fortune he has in his Swiss & off-shore bank accounts or how they came about. While I like most can only speculate on how Mitt made his fortune but it wouldn't shock me if his estimated net worth were actually closer to $750 million dollars.
There are more than enough reasons not to vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket, but here are some of the key issues/reasons not to do so; first the War on Women's health issue, self deportation of the Dreamers & repealing the "Dream Act" if passed, voter suppression efforts of the republicans, the ridiculous 20% across the board Tax Cut that benefits the wealthiest Americans and the under 30's crowd. Mathmatically there should be no way Mitt Romney could win this election, but by some manner of manipulation they could possibly pull off the upset. But I like so many republicans seriously doubt it, plus they've got to watch their backs in the Senate as well as the House because the Democrats are surging ahead in some races.
