Here are some very important questions that we here in the USA need to ask Mitt Romney...

Does Mitt Romney have the balls to take on the brutal communist regime in China in order to fix things?

Does Mitt Romney have the balls to support a labor movement in China when the time comes, the same way that we supported Lech Walesa and the people of Poland?

Does Mitt Romney have the balls to enforce our fair trade rules, and to help create new fair trade rules if needed for our survival and betterment?

Does Mitt Romney have the balls to support FAIR trade instead of just free trade?

Does Mitt Romney have the balls to fight for the same environmental protection rules for everyone globally?

Mitt Romney has already stated that he will not borrow money from China, how hard will he fight to help to save and improve our world economy, and to help make our world a better place?

I would really love to hear Mitt Romney answer these questions on live television.

And on the issue of a labor movement in China, which is needed in order to save and improve our entire world economy...

Here is a link for a thread that I started on the Topix forum for China pertaining the Knights of Labor...

http://www.topix.com/forum/world/china/TCH7FP...

The Knights of Labor organization needs to be started up again, only GLOBALLY this time, and especially in China, a foundation has already been provided, and we can just pick up where Terence V. Powderly left off. Seriously, we CAN do it.

The Knights of Labor might need to start out as a secret organization in China while all of the plans are made, and while a labor movement in China is organized, and then once all of the plans are made, and once everything is organized, then the Knights of Labor can come out into the open, as was the case with the Knights of Labor in the USA.

We must all support a labor movement in China when the time comes, just the same as we supported Lech Walesa and the people of Poland. We can save and improve our entire world economy, and we can help to make our world a better place for everyone, it we would all work together as a team globally in good ways.

Salute,

Tony V.

Once more without the error...

We can save and improve our entire world economy, and we can help to make our world a better place for everyone, if we would all work together as a team globally in good ways.

You are too focused on China. China doesn't run the United States. If you want to ask any questions, ask how DumBama did with China? He toured our country on a bus made in Canada and built our new bridges with Chinese steel. Oh, and that car company he saved? Yes, most of those GM jobs are in China today:

I will certainly be voting for Mitt Romney, we MUST remove Obama, I just want to know more about where Mitt stands on the issues.

And the issue of the current situation with China is an important issue. All of the jobs are being lost to communist slavery in China, while the Chinese workers are working but they are poor and they cannot afford buy anything and they cannot afford to participate in the world economy, and our world economy just continues to get worse and worse, and a large part of the reason why our world economy is getting worse and worse is because of the current situation with China. Mitt Romney needs to understand what is going on with China.

He has bashed China during the primaries if I remember correctly. He is a businessman who understands all the problems with China. Americans are consumed with cheap. We have more things to buy than we did 30 years ago or so, so we want more stuff, and that means cheap stuff.

We can't rely on politicians to save us from doom and gloom all the time. We need to contribute ourselves, and that means purchasing American products. If a President can somehow persuade people to do that, our economy will be back on the right track.

I'm not voting for Romney this election. I'm voting against Obama.

I try to buy American made products, but it is very hard now to find products which are made in America. Everything is made in China.

And just imagine how much better the USA would be if everything that was invented in the USA was manufactured here. But instead they invent stuff here, and then they manufacture the stuff in China to utlize the slave labor in China. Look at APPLE for instance, everything they invent is manufactured in China using communist slave labor.

I hope Romney will fight to improve things.

And yes, we must remove Obama.

Romney understands China. He said in his nomination acceptance he won't allow China to 'cheat.' He's no wimp. He's been there and done that and can lower the tax rate for middle class.

As for deductions there is nothing on your Sch. A that will get pulled. The eliminations will be on deductions available to the wealthy because they can participate in those activities. They'll pay a little more tax, and they won't mind. The wealthly only do well if the middle class does well.

No politician is ever going to touch SS. It would be political suicide. Obama talked about lowering the benefits, but in the end, he won't.

I'm more worried about the most popular plan which is to make people work longer. This is what the suit and ties like to support. Working until the age of 67,68 or 70 is fine when you go to work in a suit and tie everyday, but what about manual labor?

How are we going to tell a bricklayer he has to work until the age of 70 in the hot sun working non-stop until breaks or lunch? What about the roofer? Think it's okay to send him two stories up that ladder and crawl around up there to shingle a roof at the age of 67? How is a furnace technician going to be able to remove and install new furnaces at the age of 69? What about me? I'm a truck driver here in Cleveland. Do you want to be the vehicle in front of me when I'm 68 years old, driving in bad weather and I have to bring that 75,000 rig to a sudden stop?

But that aside, what will health insurance charge our employers to give us insurance at that late age? I would think you would be the first person they layoff. Then if you cannot get on any government plan, how are you going to be able to afford health insurance at $800.00 per month on unemployment?

The real answer of course is to increase our contributions to the plans, but what politician would run on increasing our SS and Medicare taxes not to mention our employers matching funds?

Sure they can, if they are somewhat wealthy. But most Americans don't fall into that category. There is also no way to get rid of these government systems in our lifetime. So the best we can do is be honest about it. If we want these social systems, then we just have to pay for them. That's all.

None. It's political suicide to go near SS.

You're right and I thought about the same thing last night. My husband's in construction and, even though he's a 'white hat', there is no way he should be doing that kind of work past age 60. His body won't take it.(He'd kill me for saying this.)

And with inflation, your SS check is not going to take you anywhere. I guess the answer is you have take personal responsibility and plan for it.

Was SS ever meant to supply all your financial needs? One thing people can do is refi at a lower interest rate but for 15 years instead of 30. Pay an extra $100. a month on the mortgage and it will go down faster than you think.

Of course, lots of people can't afford that.

Idk, xxxray. I still say go back to SS and take out the benefits NOT for seniors. A kid under age 18 with a father 65 or older should not automatically get a benefit check. Larry King's kid could be receiving a SS check monthly.

Children and step children under age 18 that have a parent die, should not automatically get a monthly SS check.

Basing those two things on NEED might be a start.

Social Security has somehow become a disability insurance too. I don't know how that got started, but it seems that it's increasing particularly during the Obama administration. From what I've heard, specifically those who ran out of unemployment.

Like you, I understand construction. My father was a bricklayer. I guess that's why I threw his profession into the mix. When I was younger, he convinced me to do the same. So I joined the union and became an apprentice. That lasted about three months.

I remember when I was about 11 or 12 years old. I asked my father for five dollars. He returned a question; What makes you think I have five dollars? I replied "because you have a job and work." To that he said "Well if that's the way I make my five dollars, that's the way you are going to make yours. Get in the van."

On top of his full time bricklaying job, he did side work when he got home, and as a lad, I too grew up in the construction world. So I know what that kind of work is like.

During my childhood, I also had both of my grandparents from my mothers side. They went on SS and lived very comfortably. I think most of our grandparents did at that time, so many did not think about retirement accounts for when they got older. Now those people are trapped because SS isn't what it used to be. It was robbed by our politicians and not much left for us.

But again, if politicians understand that the majority want to keep SS and Medicare, then we have to fund it. After all, when our health insurance goes up, it's to cover the outrageous medical expenses, yet, Medicare hasn't gone up in many years. No wonder it's broke.

Here is the problem the way I see it: Republicans will never run on increasing SS or Medicare contributions. Democrats would call it a tax on the working poor and middle-calss. Democrats will never increase contributions enough to collect what we are paying out (and will payout in the future) because it would make Americans angry at the safety net system. Americans would soon realize what a defective system both these social programs are, and Democrats would never risk losing control over the people.

So what we are stuck with is dishonesty.

Here is a thread that I started on a website for actors pertaining the issue of "Trickle Down Economics."

http://more.showfax.com/bbs2/viewtopic.php...

I am a Republican, but I am also pro union.

If you are worried about retirement, and health care, your best bet is to join a union.

All of the best,

Oh he understands China enough that he dropped his stock in CNOOC, when he got R Nomination.
CNOOC is BTW a Chinese Oil Company with ties to Iran and they tried to buy out American UNICAL.
Rmoney is dirty and now he has been caught up in Voter Fraud. Can't trust him.
