At this point, who are you voting for? Romney or Obama?
I realize it's a pretty redundant question, but I'm wondering what some of my followers(and hopefully new followers) actually think. Give me some legitimate reasons why you chose who you chose, and please try to refrain from disparaging either of the candidates.
At this point, I may not vote so whatever is coming I can say I had no part in it. Seriously, I do not care for Obama's policies but I am no Romney fan either. I feel we don't have much of a choice.
I'm in the same boat. I may not vote either at this point. But when election time comes, I'll probably end up voting. If I don't vote, I might feel bad. If I do end up voting, it's really a toss-up at this point.
I agree with you, there seems to be no choice. Obama and Romney seem to lead to the same thing.

While I am not totally satisfied with Romeny, I think that a no vote is a vote for Obama. I do not think our country can take 4 more years of his failures. He not only hasn't fulfilled the promises we all believed, he has made things worse.
@Pamela99: Do you mean to say that hopey changey thingy hasn't worked out as planned? Who'd a thunkit?
I hope you will decide to vote. Not voting is a vote for Obama, and in my opinion nothing will change in the next 4 years if we stay on the same track we are on. Bigger government, more taxes, more government programs.
I am going to vote for Romney - why - because 1) I know what we got from Obama and I personally do not like it and do not want anymore of it. 2) Obama refused to release his college transcripts - why would he do that if he was the terrific scholar he is touted to be. I would say he is more than likely an average or less than average student or else he would be proud to show his transcripts. 3) Romney has been a terrific business man and knows how to manage economics. 4) Romney is squeaky clean- you know there are not a lot of skeletons in his closet. 5) Romney supports Isreal. 6) Romney donated all of his inheritance to charity and made his millions on his own accord - he knows how to work and he knows how to make money. 7) I think Romney is a good guy all around.
Romney also doesn't pay his taxes, while you do.
Show me some concrete proof and I might entertain that lie.
Oh, and his VP has endorsed a bill to give rapists the right to sue their victims if they want an abortion.
And he wants to outlaw abortion. (Resulting in more deaths.)
And he wants to outlaw homosexual marriage.

Romney’s Taxes Compared With Everyone Else’s
http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012 … tw-nytimes
First, he's a whiz at growing money, which America desperately needs.
Secondly, and which is more important to me, he believes in limited government.
Third, I believe in his character as a man of morals, which would be a welcome change.
Fourth, he's proven himself to be a great leader. He helped found a highly-successful company, he turned around an Olympics, and he led Massachusetts out of a terrible economic situation. There's really no situation he's been in where he has had anything but success. I don't know about you, but I want someone successful in office.
Know your candidate and you will select the best one for the time and future of the country. Vote, it's your priviledge and right.

My State doesn't do unapproved write-ins. If it did, I'd vote for mah man Poxon Boththeir Houses.
As it is, I'm leaning toward Obama. What America needs is full recognition of the runaway train the national state has become and the disastrous wreck toward which it is driving us all. Another four years of BO is the shortest route from this point A to that point B.
An American citizen named Willard Mitt Romney. He was Born: March 12, 1947 and is 65 years old. Mitt was raised in Bloomfield Hills , Michigan He is Married to Ann Romney since 1969; they have five children.
Education & Religion:
B.A. from Brigham Young University
J.D. and M.B.A. from Harvard University
Religion: (not mine)
Mormon - The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints
After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar exam, but never worked as an attorney.
In 1984, he co-founded Bain Capital -- a private equity investment firm, one of the largest such firms in the United States .
In 1994, he ran for Senator of Massachusetts and lost to Ted Kennedy.
He was President and CEO of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
In 2002, he was elected Governor of the State of Massachusetts where he eliminated a 1.5 billion deficit
Bain Capital, started with one small office supply store in Massachusetts which was turned into Staples -- and is now over 2,000 stores employing 90,000 people.
Bain Capital also worked to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply, and many others. They were the epitome of successful American business.
Other Information of Interest:
He took no salary and was the unpaid Governor of Massachusetts for four years.
He gave his entire inheritance from his father to charity.
Mitt Romney is one of the wealthiest self-made men in our country but has given more back to its citizens in terms of money, service and time than most men will ever earn.
In 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of his income. Just for comparison purposes, Barack Obama gave 1% and Joe Biden gave $300 or .0013%.
Mitt Romney's background, experience and trustworthiness show him to be a great leader and an excellent citizen. He is a solid candidate for President of the United States.
I know he has the ability to turn around the financial debacle that we are currently in. We won't like all the things that will be necessary to recover from this debt-induced recession, but someone with Romney's background can do it.
He did not attend a church whose pastor called for God to damn the US.
I'm voting for Romney/Ryan. I just feel that we have given Pres Obama four years and he is putting our country on a track to decline. He did inherit a mess from the Bush years, but I don't see any progress in sight. We need to change our leader.
connorj, THANK YOU for doing your part to help Americans SEE WHY Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan are the right leaders for America at this critical, pivotal time in history!! AND, they ARE who their friends are. Their Administration will also be awesome!
At this point...I feel it's vote for the lesser of the two evils and in my opinion, that's Romney.

Our choice is to continue on the road we're on or change course. I definitely think we need to change course, so I will be voting for Romney/Ryan. The only new thing from the White House was a beer recipe they posted the other day. Go figger..

The Obama's don't want this video to be seen in 2012

I will be voting for Mitt Romney. I have been terribly disappointed in President Obama, who entered office with the wind at his back and was heralded as the 'hope and change' candidate. I've lived long enough to be privileged to vote in every presidential election since Nixon's second term, and I have never seen our country more divided, with partisan bickering and a president standing at countless podiums across the country yelling into the microphone for Americans to "call Congress". He has definitely not been the 'great uniter'.
With crushing national debt, growing government overreach encroaching on our freedoms, entitlement programs multiplying by the minute, unending unemployment lines, discouraged small business owners, and a spreading malaise across the country, I do not see how we can survive another 4 years of Obamamania.
I also dislike the term "middle class" that has grown in usage over the past 4 years. My parents didn't raise me to be "middle class" or to dislike those who have succeeded financially. These past 4 years have focused us on the differences between the 'classes' here in America. I don't like the way President Obama has fanned the flames of discontent by pitting the 99% (?) against the supposed 1% who are being told to 'pay their fare share'. It's all pretty demoralizing and hasn't been an inspiring message.
I know that Mitt Romney is not a natural politician. He can't sing Al Green songs, isn't supported by most Hollywood celebrities, and doesn't curry favor from the liberal media, but I believe that he is honest, smart, and will jump start the economy and create an environment where America can once again be 'the hope of the earth'.
Another side of the story.

Obama campaign false or dubious assumptions
I'm really shocked that so many people like Romney. I have to admit, I haven't been keeping up with politics much lately. From what I've seen, a lot of people seem to like Romney.
If you look at approval ratings., it seems to favor Romney. As the days go by, it's looking more and more likely that Romney will win. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing.
Paul Ryan on 'Hannity'

vision for the future
I will be voting for Mitt Romney, because he and Paul Ryan have high integrity, they are honest and decent men who truly care about the American people, and they both stand for all of the same values I do.
I want them in the White house because they know that marriage is between a man and a woman.....they know this because God said it, it is biblical!.....and, they are against abortions, they are for small businesses, and I feel that I can trust Mitt and Paul as the President and Vice President of the United States!
Frankly, I am completely dissapointed in Mr. Obama, because he doesn't seem to know what he is doing, he has gotten our country into the worst debt ever, and he is for abortion and same sex marriage.....he stands for everything I am against!
Having said all of this, I can honestly say that I do not hate this man, but I know I can't trust him or respect him, so why on earth would I vote for him?
It would definitely have to be Romney. Our economy isn't doing well with Obama. Obamacare is also really not needed. Plus, I am a republican.
I also believe that Romney will be able to turn our economy around. Obamacare is full of taxes and will increase the cost of healthcare for everyone. I'm an independent, but am concerned that the growth of government is troubling.
A good reason for a change.

It is definately Romney. America's economy is in a shambles and we need a businessmsn to get us out of it. We have seen what 4 years of on the job training with with BO left us.
I don't think Romney is ideal,( he has no foreign policy experience and he is not on the surface likeable)but he is what we need now.
Atikkos, I think we can't afford another 4 years just so we can hit rock bottom. We may be at it already
I absolutely agree. Our economy can't get any worse than it is today. And frankly, our foreign policy can't get any worse worldwide either. Iran, Egypt, Libya, Afghanistan, they're all a mess. Nothing's gotten better, only worse here & abroad.
Mitt Romney, he is by far the better candidate.
1) He actually believes in the Constitution and the Founders vision for America
2) Supports true Christian values
3) Understands how to grow an economy, starting with getting the government out of the private sector
4) Will reverse America's destructive path to debt and socialism.
5) Understands America's role in the world and the need to present America as a strong nation with a military that can back it up.
I agree with you! I just can't believe that so many Americans seem to want to repeat the past 4 years with Obama's terrible record. If Obama is re-elected, we're doomed for more hard times.
