Mitt Romney is one of the wealthiest self-made men in our country, but has given more back to its citizens, in terms of money, service and time, than most men. Mitt Romney, is Trustworthy, unlike Barack Hussein Obama, Mitt will show us, before he is elected, his birth certificate, he will show us his high school and college transcripts.
He will show us, his Social Security card, (Mitt only has one).
He will show us his law degree, which didn't get relinquish because he was about to lose it, like Obama.
He will show us his draft notice. He will show us his medical records. He'll show us his income tax records. He will show us he has nothing to hide, again unlike Obama, Romney will not spend millions to hide information about his birth, his high school, his college, guys and gals that knew him during these times.
I personally, still don't know who Obama is, and I've got a feeling that I never will.
This is the first time in my lifetime that I've ever seen the American people, seem to not care if they know anything about the person that they put in the most powerful position in the world.
Please consider to at least try looking this same info up about Obama.
Some say that Romney is a Republican, some say he's a moderate, and some say that he is too far to the left, well if that's all true, then I guess, no matter what party you belong to, you should feel pretty good about covering all bases and voting for Romney.
Mitt Romney's background experience and trustworthiness, shows me that he has been a great leader, and would be an excellent president of the United States.
If Romney has all these qualifications, which he does, then what qualifications did Obama have, besides being able to read, to become president?
Voting for someone to lead this country, because you love him, is one dumb reason.
Voting for someone because you want to be faithful to your party is also a dumb reason, especially when they have not proven to the American people just who the heck they are, and what they've accomplished.
I have always tried to put the country and Americans first when I vote.
When a party decides to step on, and trash the constitution, totally ignoring the law of the land, as the Democrats have, they should cease to exist to all of us.
God please bless America, she needs it.
