This will be an easy choice come November.

Americans who put in the time effort and energy to raise their kids properly and think their kids deserve a shot at making something of themselves will Vote for Romney.

Americans who admit to failing to raise their children to be anything but a govt sponge will settle for Obama.

Nothing else matters.

They pretend to know and make up crap expecting you

cast their first vote for him, but they want to
know everything about Mitt. As usuual, what they
don't know, they "make up" and lie... Mentally
unfit to judge anyone.*The T-People aren't
running this country into the ground, idiots,
your man is, Try to understand what is happening
and ask someone who is to blame...come back then.
Calling and degradeing others is a fool in the pocket of a fool. "YOU knew NOTHING about OBAMA
when you voted and Know less NOW" IQ test is needed before YOU get to vote again, its a privilege, for the sane. Wait until most end up
in prison!!
You would think who he ran around with- would give them a hint, or who was his mentor? Pure Communists. Either their plain blind and stupid or Commies themselves.

So, is the U.S. a "free country" today? Hardly! Not compared to what it once was. Yet, very few Americans today challenge these Marxist institutions, and there are virtually no politicians calling for their repeal or even gradual phase-out. While the United States of America may still have more freedoms than most other countries, we have nonetheless lost many crucial liberties and have accepted the major socialist attacks on freedom and private property as normal parts of our way of life. The nation, whose founders included such individualists as Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, James Madison, John Adams and Patrick Henry, has gradually turned away from the principles of individual rights, limited constitutional government, private property, and free markets and instead we increasingly have embraced the failed ideas and nostrums of socialism and fascism. We should hang our heads in shame for having allowed this to happen.
But, it is not too late to reverse these pernicious burdens and instead enact pro-freedom reforms to put our nation back on track again. It can be done.
In some ways the Left has a head start over us on the pro-freedom Right. The enemies of American freedom do admittedly dominate the entertainment industry, television news media, and academia -- but we have the tremendous strategic advantage that reality (including man's nature) is on our side; so, unlike the socialists and "liberals" (welfare-state fascists), we are not in the position of having to advocate a system which constantly tries to "make water to go uphill" -- or force human beings into a rigid utopian staitjacket based on the whims of some clique of central planning bureaucrats. We know that individual freedom for peaceful people within a constitutional republic works in practice; our country's history demonstrates that. The piecemeal abandonment of those principles and institutions which once made America great has proved to be a a dead-end road to failure. That is why I tend to be a long-term optimist even though things often look pretty glum in the meantime. Just as Prohibition was eventually repealed, I feel encouraged that such key statist achievements as the income tax, government schools, fiat money/central banking (the Federal Reserve), "environmentalist" regulations, property forfeiture laws, and other Marxist planks and leftist institutions can be rolled back and repealed altogether, although it may take several decades.
Those who would carry forward the ideas and principles of self-ownership, private property, free markets, laissez faire, the rule of law, and constitutionalism which informed America's founders must become more active on the key ideological battle fronts. We need more influence not just in politics, but in areas of entertainment, academia, journalism, think tanks, churches (we need our own individualist Walter Rauschenbushes), literature, art, and other venues of expression and activism.
Marxism and socialism have proved to be colossal failures all over the world. As Frederic Bastiat wrote in his classic The Law just prior to his death, "let us now try liberty"!

Could it be clearer,my fellow Americans?
Take it from some one who endured it first
