Every American ought to take this election seriously. What all the candidates agree on is how important this election is. Virtually everyone wants to see a better economy. The questions: who will deliver it? Why should it matter if you vote or not?
Let's start with the second question.
You may live in a state which could decide the upcoming election. In 2000, just 537 votes in Florida out of 6 million cast in that state ended up making the difference in who became President of the United States. There are 410 cities towns and municipalities in Florida. So less than 2 voters per town made the difference.
One vote - your vote – matters! It is in the ballot box vote that are all equal regardless of race, income or other factors.
Americans are usually practical. Once Americans have the facts, they are usually long on common sense.
The facts are that President Obama promised what he did not deliver. He had the House and Senate for two years, he didn't deliver. He promised to work with Republicans and be post partisan, he didn't deliver. We are over 6 million jobs short of what we needed to keep up with a growing population. Obama hasn't delivered.
Obama promised 5 million green energy jobs. In his own speeches, he now says we have created 'thousands' – a far cry from 5 million -and if you do the math, each green energy job we have cost taxpayers $9.1 million dollars! No wonder we are going bankrupt in Washington! Where did all those dollars go?
By contrast, Mitt Romney has a record for creating private sector jobs that even Democrat Bill Clinton called a sterling business record. Mitt did it by turning around companies that were struggling or failing. Mitt Romney lead the turn-around effort at the 2002 Olympics. As Governor of Massachusetts, he kept the over 40 promises made to voters. Jobs grew, taxes declined and MA became the #1 state for public education in the U.S. during his four years. Mitt did this by working with Democrats.
