People should make sure that it is always good to know.

Make sure everyone knows about all, what is real and everything.

All the people have to know what would all be true and useful, so that great, wise and responsible decision can be made.

The obligation of all endeavor would be required to get it right in order not to repeat careless mistakes, which are very damaging and harmful, if not doing all in the right way.

Year 2012 US Election is about who should be there, in terms of the fitness and look of such a public figure who would possess the active mind and thinking to be in the Oval Office as President.

It is not just about the right pitching against the left-wingers.

It is not even about the color, race and other related concern of whichever party.

It is important to deal with the image, appearance and the look of the right person who can be fit , suitable and would be suited as the president.

This has to do with the vital vigor, mature charisma, personality, responsibility and leadership of such person to be the president--as this can only come from Romney, and absolutely not Obama.

People have made a major blunder that somehow by chance, Obama happens to be the president for the last few years.

If people have not found out yet, people should know the facts that Obama has been showing the unsuitable look and poor image of the president. Obama does not look like a bright person--being slow to interact with people, to come up with answers as well.

People should know that Obama does not look like a take-charge person and decision maker with maturity to have quick and alert acts, but Romney.

While Obama is surrounded by bureaucrats and such people in formal meetings, he has been showing the lack of responsibility and owning the deficiency of take-charge leadership.

While Obama is surrounded by many ordinary people, he talks and behaves like doing the street raggae dancing (like in Chicago)--this demonstrates his similarity to many average street people's behavior and acts.

Obama seems to be absent-minded in public business when others are trying to guide him in responses during meetings, which looks degrading and odd.

All these indicate apparently that Obama does not look like a statesman and presidential figure, but a mediocre and ordinary person--lacking format with not any righteous formality behavior all the time.

Any president must not be that way thus.

However, Romney is a person who looks totally in charge and a take-charge decision-making leader with good professional behavior and great personality, as he communicates well.

Obama is not a good speaker whereas Romney is the excellent and best speaker--better than previous few presidents.

Romney looks more like a profound, bigger weight public figure who can deal effectively in a communicative way of gesture with style and substance--his recent overseas trip has proved this showing.

Obama kissing his wife in a recent basketball game attendance, looked like an ordinary civilian acting out his apparent indication that he is really doing nothing.

From events, his acts and look of Obama,it would seem to show it is not true he commanded the getting of bin Laden while giving not any full details and pictures.

Obama is not real as people will find out. Besides, he does not have any material-style-substance in what he says and any policies nor style of making things happen in a good way.

Clearly, all can see that Romney is only real and more than that--to be fit and more than suitable as the new and next president in 2012 election.

All people should know and find out more about all true facts and what is true.

It was the big blunder as a great waste of time with terrible Obama for the last few years.

Hence, it is only Romney & Ryan only to be elected absolutely in year 2012.

I am a business owner, whether you want to believe it or not, and there are many of us that believe the programs that Romney intends, will kill our growth potential in a faster and deadlier way than those that the Obama economic plan contains.
Please do not take my words out of context and use them in a way that makes you sound good. Tactics like those should be reserved for the politicians themselves, and Jr High School Debate Teams.

I don't have any handlers but I follow C. Krauthammer when I want a take on an issue.
I said I personally paid 15-16% under Clinton and 9-11% under Bush.
I get all these Libs opinions on this forum but no personal stories. When I do get a personal story it's so out of wack with reality as to be a joke.
Such as the clown who claimed he owned a biz and wouldn't mind investing in Obama a SPARE $100,000 in unneeded income. After he rambled on for 3 days I suggested he split the $100,000 as a profit bonus to his employees and he kind of slipped away.
He was enforcing Obama Top Down and I supported Reagan Trickle Down .Employee profit sharing vs . excess profit taxes to Obama.
I run my own finances and lived below the poverty level for 2 years and by planning and executing my plan I'm in the top 15% of income earners while being retired. Thanks to the 401k you LEFTIES hate because it's an individualistic endeavor designed for the middle-class. Yes , cap gains are a part of my income derived from 16 years of 401k contributions.
Calling payroll contributions a tax is admitting LBJ made a wh*re of the system. As designed by FDR it was a insurance payment for an annuity and the Dems azzhole LBJ stole it from the American people and now it's just another pipeline into the general fund to be raped and pillaged at will.
However the payee does get to draw it back so is it an annuity ins. payment or a tax slush fund for the pols ?
Why do you Dems ripoff the social security trust fund ?
You blantantly do it by calling it a tax therefore you thieves steal it and spend it.
P.S. Back in '06 when Pelosi first came to power and later in '09 she mumbled about taxing the 401k pool before it was being paid out. I'm sure Obama would like that also and will go after it if the votes are there.
If you are in the top 15% and pay less than 15% great, because you are retired.

I told you what my taxes were, about 20% income PLUS 15.3% SS and Medicaare. That equals about 35%. You are retired, you no longer pay SS and Medicare taxes. Romney is not retired, he pays less taxes as a percentage than you do.

Calling the contributions to SS and Medicare a tax is doing the same thing Reagan did when he increased the SS taxes. Take it for what it is worth. It is a tax. It is a regressive, slanted to the bottom, flat tax with a lid.

It was Reagan that increased Capital Gains to 28%.

If you pay 35% combined then you are self-employed and earn over $100,000 .

The average person earning $100,000 pays 17%. Plus 7.6% in PONZI and MediCare . If you pay 15.3% you are self-employed.Does your 20% include other tax such as state income etc.?

Reagan raised the Cap. gains in dealing making with a Dem controlled Cong. Reagan increased taxes for later budger cuts with Tip O'Neal and company that the Dems always renegged on.

They are still trying that game today .Raise taxes today and we'll cut spending 5 years down the road ( wink...wink...nod...nod..chuck le ..chuckle ).

If SS is intended to be a tax why did Al Gore in 2000 campaign for a " Lock Box " ? In other words keep the pols filthy stealing paws of it ? Gore was attempting to get it back to a real Trust Fund Annuity program and not a slush fund for thieving pols.

When Phaggot Obama dropped the first bomb on Africa, I saw daylight.( http://mathaba.net/news/... ) So clearly my head was not up the liberals' backside. When Obama bombed Africa, it was to give cover to white racist CIA agents from the CIOA training gorunds of Virginia. What did they do when they got to Africa? They lynched hundreds, probably thousands of innocent black people:

Obama a House Slave Turns International Terrorist

Therefore, Obamas bombing Libya under the guise of protecting citizens of Libya, while killing citizens of Libya, is international state terrorism, and every African state and progressive and revolutionary African organization and freedom loving sovereign state must align themselves to stop Obamas madness. His representation and doing the dirty work of the European capitalist class Knows no bounds. He is the 21st century house slave who is the only head of State in the annals of history that is defending a constitution which defines his wife and children as 3/5 of a human being. And with a pen stroke of the U.S. Supreme Court his family and in-laws can be reduced to second class citizenship (slavery).

Well, lets use your "average" taxes paid. 17% plus 7.65% equals about 10% more than Romney paid making millions. The case still holds and that is my point.

BS. When Reagan came in the rate was close to 28% and he cut it along with income tax rates. Before he left office he increased it back to 28%. Further, the Dems never did promise cuts later, made up noise by the right. If they had, why would Reagan keep submitting budget requests for more and more money and keep signing tax increases throughout the rest of his term?

We'll just have to keep disagreeing over the 7.65%.

Which for the case of pure theft the Dems call it a tax which was never the intent FDR and honored by HST , DDE and JFK.

LBJ stole from it and the Dems have morphed the theft to be legitimate by calling it a tax.
Ignoring both Clinton's and Gore's suggestings to protect it and even " Lock box " it.

Enough said already.

I see how you backed off your 20% and 13.5% another faux pas taxpayer ...oh well...this forum is loaded with them.

It was not so much that I backed off, it was that I could prove my point using the figures you provided. The point was not how much I paid or million of other middle class voters, it was that Romney makes 100 - 200 times more than the middle and pays a lower tax rate. That is the point.
