I have been asked countless times why I support Mitt Romney. I have also wondered if all ATS people think a like when they vote. So prove me wrong.
Prove to me that you are not all conspiracy theorist/ rebellious anti-government types (no insult meant by that)
Do you vote on the economy? What issues are important to you?
Do you vote on social issues? Why?
Please don't say stupid things like Obamacare for all. or End the Fed. I want to know your thinking process not some talking points from political
campaigns. And if you actually read past the words Mitt Romney below, you will see mine is my own original thought.
I don't vote on social issues alone, I vote on economic issues. Now, of course one will argue that since government affects social issues and social
issues affect the economy, I actually am voting on social issues.
Call me heartless and cruel, but I don't really care about the social impact of the economics. I study the economic plans of each of the candidates
and vote on the one that will pass through Congress and which will hopefully as they claim will pass the budget. Mitt Romney's plan will reasonably
pass congress. Obama's will and has not. My choice is clear. The icing on the cake here is that Obama's social policies are enough in the extreme
leftist direction to get me pissed off at him forever.
Bill Clinton however, is the one democrat that I can actually admire for working with republicans on economic issues and I may even have voted for
him. Because I could see his leadership abilities. But I wouldn't have voted for Carter, McCain, or Obama, I don't see real leadership qualities in
them. Reagan and Kennedy had amazing leadership qualities and I believe Romney is blossoming and has already surpassed Obama by getting the majority
of the GOP behind him (not the extreme tea party or Ron Paulities unfortunately) when they were so unsure of who they wanted to try to stop Obama,
Romney like mid 1990s Microsoft stayed in the background allowed the others to topple over each other and finished on top. The primary was exciting to
watch. I saw a few leadership qualities in Jon Huntsman and a tiny bit in Herman Cain. That is how I vote!
Will I be mad at Romney if he messes up? Sure. Will I criticize him? You bet, in fact I already have. If Romney's economy sucks there is little I can
do to help out except to just keep on pushing through my own life and help those around me. Besides for voting on my issues/conscious, what more can I
Your not going to like every President and your not going to be pro-everything. People thinking that the world will fall into their own little
ideologies will always end up disappointed and angry, so I decide to find the positive in life. Because yes, there are things I do not like about Mitt
