Here are some important things to consider when voting that the media isn't talking about.

1. Romney wants a war against Iran which would be deadly and far more expensive than we can afford.

2. If Romney replaces Ben Bernanke at the Fed and gets rid of low interest rates the economy will go off a cliff.

3. Romney's VP pick is most famous for wanting to gut social security and medicare, which will bankrupt or even kill millions of Americans.

4. Romney's plan for the economy is to cut taxes for the rich, but the last ten years we've had those tax cuts and it didn't do anything for jobs or the economy.

5. Romney wants to cut 10% (that he admits to) of Federal jobs. This would be devastating to the middle class.

6. Romney wants to get rid of Obamacare and go back to the Republican plan of letting the medical industry bankrupt millions of people.

I watched the debate last night between Biden and Ryan. One of the things that became very clear to me is that if Romney is elected; he, Ryan and their cohorts will lead the U.S. into another war.

I am not liking that!

If war is on the plans, you will go to war no matter who is elected. You can only expect a change in rhetoric from the political product that gets elected...

Didn't Obama say that Iran couldn't be allowed nuclear weapons? Will he actually back that up in a second term? Besides that, what kind of war can we "afford"? Is war predicated on affordability?

Bernanke is a disaster. Raising interest rates is inevitable. No president can change that.

Ryan wants to replace medicare, not do away with it entirely. Good or bad? who knows but it's accurate. He doesn't want to get rid of social security but he does want to get rid of freeloaders who use it without necessity. Social security was never intended to last anyway. It's a ponzi scheme that was never viable. I'm paying into it and it won't exist when I'm old enough to benefit.

The middle class does NOT rely on government jobs. Government jobs are always parasitic on the economy. That is a historical fact. The US government could be reduced by 75 percent or more and the taxes saved would replace those jobs multiple times over..

Obamacare is designed to bankrupt millions. It is not about health care, it's just another attempt to implement a socialist system for the sake of socialism. If they really cared about 20 million without health care then they would simply have created a coverage group and paid for it with huge group discounts and taxpayer money at a fraction of the cost of Obamacare. That would at least have made some sense and been effective.


When you consider voting, look at your wallet.

So? Are you seriously suggesting he'd be more likely to attack Iran??




what kind of war can we "afford"?


None, so we can't afford Romney.




Ryan wants to replace medicare, not do away with it entirely.


It is getting rid of it whatever you call it.




Obamacare is designed to bankrupt millions.


That's too stupid to comment on.

Obama wants a war in Pakistan and is continuing this war in afghanistan.

He doesn't care about the economy either.

Basically, it really doesn't matter which one we get, America is screwed either way.

When Romney has his new Fed chief raise interest rates and no one buys any more houses or cars we'll see how great he is for the economy.

1. Romney wants a war against Iran which would be deadly and far more expensive than we can afford.

The Obama administration insists it will not allow Iran to possess nuclear weapons: “the military option is on the table”. They claim (as did Biden in the VP debate) “severe sanctions” will prevent the mullahs from going forward. This assumes that the mullahs actually care that the country is isolated from the West, the general population cannot buy gas at $0.35 anymore, the currency is devalued and commodities become scarce and expensive.
These are the same mullahs who supported the murder of protesters in their streets in the “Green revolution,” who profess and support an anti-Western and isolationist existence, who obtain fissile materials and nuclear weapon technology from Russia, North Korea and “rogue scientists.”
How will the US prevent Iranian nuclear weapons should the “sanctions” fail to be a deterrent (as they have so far)?


2. If Romney replaces Ben Bernanke at the Fed and gets rid of low interest rates the economy will go off a cliff.

Everyone agrees that the end result of QE1-3 will be a de-valued dollar, which will result in high inflation. As of this date, the greatest benefit of the 0.005 (.5%) Fed Funds Rate has been to permit the largest banks and hedge funds to stock up their reserves and continue the super-leveraged speculation that brought the economy to its knees once before when the bets were called. The problem with today’s economy, and that of the first decade of the 21st Century, is that it is over-leveraged –it is funded on borrowed money rather than capital growth!
Bernanke was appointed by Bush 43 in 2006. (Aren’t Obama supporters blaming the economic crisis on Bush 43 and his policies? Moreover, he supports and advocates for the Romney/Ryan proposition of drastically re-making the social security and medicare systems.www.federalreserve.gov...)


3. Romney's VP pick is most famous for wanting to gut social security and medicare, which will bankrupt or even kill millions of Americans.

(See Ben Bernanke’s position, above.) The Obama administration and the trustees of the programs agree that they will be bankrupt by 2030, at the latest. Obama has no specific plan for rescuing either of these entitlements that no longer function as they were intended. If these programs are unable to pay any benefits after 2030, what effect will that have on “millions of Americans.” Paul Ryan has proposed maintaining current benefits for everyone 55 years old and over, and revamping the programs for those under 55 years, with an to “opt-in” to the original model.


4. Romney's plan for the economy is to cut taxes for the rich, but the last ten years we've had those tax cuts and it didn't do anything for jobs or the economy.

If you taxed the income of the wealthiest 1% at 100%, took ALL of their income, it would provide $68 billion of additional funds. How will that affect the Obama administration’s $1.4 trillion deficit for the coming year? It will then be $1.332 trillion! Feel better? The main reasons the Bush43 tax cuts didn’t produce expected results was that Congress voted to spend on the prescription drug benefits program, Afghanistan war and Iraq war. Joe Biden voted for BOTH wars, even though we didn’t have the money. The only real solution is NOT to spend more than we take in.


5. Romney wants to cut 10% (that he admits to) of Federal jobs. This would be devastating to the middle class.

Private businesses are more efficient and cheaper than government solutions. There are 10s of 1,000s of jobs being done by government that could be out-sourced to private companies. No one can rationally argue that “ government work” is a realistic standard of excellence and efficiency. No one can rationally believe that there are too few government employees to do the work needed to be done in-house.



6. Romney wants to get rid of Obamacare and go back to the Republican plan of letting the medical industry bankrupt millions of people.

The Obama administration secretly catered to big Pharma and the insurance industry, promising them benefits in exchange for their support of Obama care. The Republican alternatives were never given any hearing or consideration. Proposals such as those of Jim DeMint and the “HIP” plan of Indiana have been proven in the real world to give consumers control over their care, lower costs and increase competition between and availability of service providers.
