    Why would you vote FOR Mitt Romney?

    There are a lot of individuals who will be turning out this November 6th to cast their vote for the next President of the United States.  If you plan to cast your vote in support of the Republican candidate, why will you be voting FOR Mitt Romney? 

    Please note that many citizens will be voting AGAINST Barack Obama.  The million dollar question is why are people choosing to SUPPORT the GOP ticket.

    As shown in the mid-term elections, Obama's socialist agenda was not popular with a majority of our electorate.  I felt that way and voted against the virtual dictatorship shown by Nancy Pelosi's dragging the giant gavel after passing Obama Care. I think we have seen their intentions.

    That said in the least: I'll be voting for Mitt Romney, not because I like him, but he has chosen Ron Paul as his running mate.  I think Mitt's a bit in the middle, but Paul has the right ideas.  We need to shrink government in a very big way.  Entitlements must be trimmed, or put in line with reality.  Mitt has indicated his intention to repeal Obama Care, or most of it, and that is needed to creat jobs.  Further, employers are holding back on hiring and expanding corporations simply because they have no realistic idea what burder they will have under Obama care by 2018.

    Overall, the Republicans are on the right track.  I just hope that Mitt follows through when he gets in the White House.

    I will be voting for Mitt for various reasonsbut the main one would be I am not happy with the direction this country is heading in. We need someone who will lead, help small businesses to be able to hire more people who are out of work. Reform the taxcode, medicare and keep socil security solvent. I believe he will make sure congress balances the budget and he will cut programs that we dont absolutely need.  He was a successful businessman, a man of faith, he is very charitable and caring. I could go on, but I will leave it at this, I believe he will bring back the pride in America once again, and he will not apologize for what we as a nation and our constitution stands on.

    Because his political beliefs and platform are far more in line with mine than his incumbent opponent's.

      It is worth pointing out that your answer amounts to a vote AGAINST the incumbent. 

      Which of his policy positions do you support?

      I believe in American Exceptionalism, secure borders, fiscal responsibility, smaller government, and a strong military. Romney was not my first choice as a candidate, but he is far superior than another BHO administration.

    Several reasons.  The main one is that the Republican Platform is a better one.  It defends the unborn, defends marriage, defends this Nation as a whole.   Which, none of Obama's policies do.  The Democrat Party has been made to lean Left more than the Leaning Tower of Pisa leans.   And that isn't American.   It is the Democrat Party that needs reformed.   Or banned.  Whichever would correct its stance and actually give Americans a viable valid option for leadership from that corner.

    I am voting for Romney because he has much more financial experience than Obama. We are all paying because Obama does not know what he is doing. Also Romney is the closest to Conservatism of the two. Romney sounded Presidential when discussing the atrocities in Libya on 9-11, Obama sounded disinterested. We need a President that wants America to be great again - that is Romney.

    Obviously, this country cannot succeed unless Amtrak is eliminated, and Mitt Romney has promised to do so.  Also, I deeply believe that access to health insurance is something that should be reserved only for people who are able to pay for it and are healthy enough for insurance companies to make a large profit from covering them.  Forcing private insurance companies to cover sick people who will cut into their profits is unfair, and exactly the kind of crazy, oppressive, Big Government policies that have turned Europe into a nightmarish Socialist hell-hole.  Mitt Romney has promised that returning America to the sensible policy of for-profit health care will be his very first act in office.  Mitt Romney and his partner in freedom Paul Ryan have promised to apply the full power of the federal government to mandate that all pregnant women carry their babies to term, even if they make up phony stories about becoming pregnant through rape or incest (impossible, from what I understand).  And Mitt Romney is undoubtedly the most pro-business and pro-freedom candidate America has ever had, because he has promised-- and shown through his entire successful business career-- that he wants businesses and corporations (e.g. people) to have the freedom to do whatever they want without meddlesome interference from job-killing laws, regulations, or codes of "ethics."
