For the Undecided Voter-

I’ve never been more concerned for our Country than I am today. I don’t understand how anyone could consider voting for President Obama again. Don’t get me wrong, I understand how he was elected four years ago. Eloquent speeches reminiscent of JFK, promises to bring civility and transparency back to Washington, a mandate to balance our out of control federal budget, responsibly ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, etc. But has any of that happened? You know the answer. Why in the world would anyone think the next four years will be any different if he’s re-elected?

We’ve all heard the saying “judge a man by what he does and not by what he says”. Let’s look at a few things that President Obama has done. He’s added 5 to 6 trillion dollars to the deficit and put America on a path to economic ruin. He rammed through a healthcare bill that has so many hidden new laws and mandates that we still don’t know all of what’s in it. In fact, the bill was so great that he basically had to bribe several members of his own party in Congress in order to get their support for it. Now it’s the law of the land for you and me- but not for his union buddies and special interest corporate donors whom he granted exemptions to. For the first time in history Americans will be forced by the government to buy a product as a condition of being alive. Wow! Who would have thought we’d see this in America? Not to mention he’s added millions to the welfare rolls and spent taxpayer money actually advertising for folks to get on welfare. I don’t think he has any clue as to what America is all about!

The left keeps touting about how Governor Romney is a millionaire and is out of touch with most Americans. What they neglect so often to tell you is that President Obama is a millionaire too. The difference between the two is that Governor Romney made his money in private business while President Obama, on the other hand, has become a millionaire while holding public office. Does anyone see a problem with that? Of course he says he’s derived most of his wealth from royalties on his book sales. I wonder if that’s really the case.

 Recently, comments made during the presidential debates such as “the 1980’s called and they want their foreign policy back” show just how arrogant and unpresidential this President actually is. And the more we learn about what actually happened in Benghazi, the more disgusted I get with this administration. But what should we expect? We elected a President who’s never had any executive experience. He’s never so much as managed a shift at a fast food restaurant or even held a real job for that matter until now. Now he’s the President of the United States and we still don’t even really know who he is or what he actually believes. We must judge him by what he’s done and not by what he’s said.

If you’re still on the fence as who to vote for this election I don’t know what to tell you. Even if Governor Romney were all the things the mainstream media and the far left have portrayed him to be, he would still be an infinitely better President than Mr. Obama.  This election comes down to the path our Country takes for the future. Will we return to the principles our great nation was founded on? Or, will we continue moving forward down the path to socialism that Mr. Obama seems to have put us on. I pray we make the right decision.
