Romney 27 years in Bain + the founder of Bain,the poster boy for out sourcing jobs in America.The decision is like night and day!Romney=richer gets richer the middle class disappears!!So vote for who will make your life better>Make your vote heard!! From the middle class worker of America!(AMERICA NEEDS AMERICAN MADE)

You're nuts, Mormonism is NOT some "denomination" of Christianity. In some circles it's called a cult. What sects of Christianity accept Mormons as Christians? They don't accept our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Unless YOU are a Mormon you know only of the two books of the bible, the old and new testament, NOT the book of Mormon. They added Jesus Christ to their name to gain acceptance. Stop calling Mormons Christians because they are not.
They added to the end of the scriptures just as Jehovah Witnesses have, but they still acknowledge the God of the Hebrews. NOT ALLAH, or Buddha or any other false God. That makes there denomination a form of Christianity. Have you forgotten that the Old testament foretold of the Birth of Christ and the New Testament is His life story. If they know these texts, they have accepted Christ as the Son of God.

Dear one-issue,

Yes Mormons have strange beliefs, but they DO accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior and they DO use in conjunction, both the Bible and the Book of Mormon. The book of Mormon is, to them, an extension of the Bible and they quote them interchangeably. Not that I agree, but stop making stuff up. A true Christian is one who follows what Christ taught, period. As such, Romney has been more of a demonstration of that than alot of other Christians I know. Judgment remains in God's hands and only God can know someone's true heart. Let's leave it at that.

What you want you are LESS likely to get from Obama. What you WILL get from Obama is more government DEPENDENCY and a tax increase for YOU.

I would love to see proof of your claim. The continued need for the right wing to spread lies to further your hate. This is why some voters actually believe that Obama is Muslim. Stop posting lies. Try facts, they can be your friend.

Try again. If you think that Romney cares about the middle class, think again. He doesn't care about 47% of the country. What is Romney promising the Koch brothers who are donating millions of dollars to him? It must be something real good for them to practically threathen their employees to vote for Romney. There is no way Romney will raise his taxes and the taxes on the wealthy. He has already said that capital gains are off the table. Middle class taxes will go up under Romney.

There are no less than a half dozen interviews with Obama confirming himself that he is Muslim faith. DUH!!!

He Never said he doesn't care about the 47%, only that he realizes he probably won't get their votes because they are government dependents in one way or or another. Do you realize that the middle class make up a huge percentage of people in this country LIVING ON their capital gains from investments? Common sense would DICTATE that you don't raise taxes on those gains. You think the economy IS BAD NOW! The Koch brothers are hardly squeaky clean, but if they are still employing, they can't be all bad. If there employees vote for ODUMBO, they would be cutting their noses off to spite their faces! Middle class taxes are going up even if ODUMBO gets back in because the SS cut is expiring right along with the Bush tax cuts at the beginning of 2013. That's
exactly what this country needs, MORE TAXES and Higher taxes, DAMN!

And a democrap is nothing more than a robin hood stealing our tax dollars to support the 47%. If you support the government dependency that the democraps embrace and create, you are no middle class worker. You are a dependent. A wolf in "sheep's" clothing.

So you will not vote at all. Remember, casting a vote is speaking your mind. If you don't vote, you are all but telling everyone that you believe Obama has done a good enough job to remain in the position he was voted into. I DON'T. So, therefore, I will vote for Romney and give him his chance to straighten this country out. To say a Mormon is not a Christian is a falsehood, the Word is part of their denomination.

OBAMA DIDN’T SUPPORT REGIME CHANGE IN LIBYA
Obama Called Regime Change In Libya A Mistake Before Joining European Leaders In Calling For Regime Change In Libya

Obama Said Overthrowing Gadhafi Would Be A Mistake.“In this case, Obama, said, making the ouster of Gadhafi a targeted outcome would have been a mistake.‘If we tried to overthrow Gadhafi by force, our coalition would splinter,’ he said.‘We would likely have to put U.S. troops on the ground to accomplish that mission, or risk killing many civilians from the air. The dangers faced by our men and women in uniform would be far greater. So would the costs, and our share of the responsibility for what comes next.’”(“Obama: Not Acting In Libya ‘Would Have Been A Betrayal Of Who We Are,’” CNN, 3/28/11)

* Three Weeks Later, Obama Signed A Letter With French President Sarkozy And Britain PM Cameron In Calling For Gadhafi To Be Removed From Power.“However, so long as Gaddafi is in power, Nato and its coalition partners must maintain their operations so that civilians remain protected and the pressure on the regime builds. Then a genuine transition from dictatorship to an inclusive constitutional process can really begin, led by a new generation of leaders.”(“Libya Letter By Obama, Cameron And Sarkozy,” BBC, 4/15/11)

Obama Was The Only Major Western Leader Who Didn’t “Speak Up On Libya” Right Away.“Governments around the world have been condemning this appalling stance and the terrible slaughter it has caused. The European Union has agreed in principle to impose sanctions, and the Arab League has said Libya will be excluded from its meetings. British Prime Minister David Cameron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi all condemned the regime’s violence. Said French President Nicolas Sarkozy:‘The continuing brutal and bloody crackdown against the Libyan civilian population is revolting. The international community cannot remain a spectator to these massive violations of human rights.’ By late Wednesday only one major Western leader had failed to speak up on Libya: Barack Obama.”(Editorial,“Why Was President Obama Last To Speak Up On Libya?” The Washington Post, 2/23/11)

* The Washington Post:“Mr. Obama Appeared Eager To Make The Point That The United States Was Not Taking The Lead In Opposing Mr. Gaddafi’s Crimes.”(Editorial,“Why Was President Obama Last To Speak Up On Libya?,” The Washington Post, 2/23/11)

* The Washington Post:“Shouldn’t The President Of The United States Be First To Oppose The Depravities Of A Tyrant Such As Mr. Gaddafi? Apparently This One Doesn’t Think So.”(Editorial,“Why Was President Obama Last To Speak Up On Libya?,” The Washington Post, 2/23/11)

The Washington Post :“Once Again, An Arab Dictator Is Employing Criminal Violence In A Desperate Effort To Remain In Power – And Once Again, The Obama Administration Has Been Slow To Find Its Voice.”(Editorial,“Why Was President Obama Last To Speak Up On Libya?” The Washington Post, 2/23/11)

*“Nonetheless, Obama May Be Moving Toward Something Resembling A Doctrine. One Of His Advisers Described The President’s Actions In Libya As ‘Leading From Behind.’”(Ryan Lizza,“The Consequentialist,” The New Yorker, 5/2/11)
