Romeny will pass legislation that will make your ability to get a job, go to school, and become an innovator, an entrepreneur a man/woman of stature. Easy money never made it easy. Just makes you happy on the short term, but the consequence of more of the same by the big 0 will result in the demise of the middle class and all that we stand for morally, emotionally, socially, legally, and of natural born right. You will suffer, and your children will suffer more if you vote 0bama. A big zero, who will do nothing but squander and ruin your life and the lives of the people you love. Make the realistic choice, sane choice, logical choice. Vote ROMNEY/RYAN. Tonight's Debate was a clear message of this very thing. Be strong, vote for the right thing, even if you don't like the party. Romney is the right person for the job.

O yea well Obama will give us all free stuff we never wanted to work for, so idiots like me who want to rely on a government are voting in his favor.

This is why your vote is necessary: Vote Obama if you want rich to stay rich and the middle class being reduced to poor, paying tithe to the eurostyle government which will control the media, the money, the vote and you. You will have no rights, because you will have no money, you will control nothing, but what the government can afford to dole out to you. And when the loans to the federal government stop from all its vast sources of credit, and there is a margin call, and believe me, CHINA will call a margin, the government checks will stop, and all the support you enjoy not working for will become your demise. There will be riots, desperation, enormous crime rates, what we have now is but a taste of whats to come if you vote this 0 in. IF you vote Romney, you will have opportunities to achieve your dreams, not by handout but by hard work. Hard work that pays off when you retire both in wealth and stature. Nothing better than earning it for yourself, having something to show for it.

That's a load of shit. The rethuglicans are trying to overturn Affirmative Action, Roe V. Wade, and essentially give liberty and freedom only to old, rich, white men! Oh, and said white men must be straight. They don't have use for them commie gays in 'Murica!

They are not....I do not know who you are listening to...everyone that is republican is not old rich white men and straight...that is just in your head and what you have been told by democrats....!!!!

I wonder if the comments here are from Romney's extended family that could barely fit on stage after the debate. Surely those kids are social media savvy, have the newest iPhone within arms reach and nothing better to do. (Yes, the irony's noted.)

@ Cal

Well I'm sure they are. Is there anything wrong with having the newest tech? O yea I forgot...Romney...you didn't build that. (Yes, the irony's noted.) Sorry if your stuck with the bag phone. Maybe you should work for an Iphone, or just wait for your handout. (Your post isn't so IRONIC)...although it is humorous.

You're from the south. That explains why you put value in things other than education (see posts below). The things you can tell about someone without even knowing or meeting them.

@ Matt

My reference to irony was that I, like his kids, have nothing better to do than post comments on a site from an iPhone. (I have one, I bought it; don't be so presumptuous.) My comment had nothing to do with "you didn't build that". And it's "you're" as in the contraction of "you" and "are", not the possessive adjective "your". I hope you're young. Am I humorous now?

Avatar
@ Cal

Yes actually you are because I was using it in a possessive way. Hence "your post" not "you are" post. Thanks for the humor. Awaiting "your" o so intelligent response. I am from the south, but not young.

Obama had 4 years to tell his lie. Romney used this evenings platform to remind Americas voters that nothing will change if Obama gets re elected. The numbers don't lie. America needs to get there collective heads out of there asses and get back to work!

Romney didnt tell me anything. He hides behind his lies. Afterall...he has been a thief all his life.

@ mary

I will post after every illogical post that I have the time to. Do you know Romney? How do you know he has lied his whole life? Sounds like you like being bent over and roofied. Lets get real. I don't want the government stripping the granted rights of my countries constitution away from me. I guess some people will tend to disagree, but these same people don't take the time to look into the facts. Would rather listen to the guy thats reading the teleprompter. No so great at debating though is he? Another humorous post.

Sorry for my grammatical errors. Not that book smart. Just have common sense...unlike some...

"It's my country's constitution" not "It's my countries constitution". You don't have more than one country, smartypants. The Supreme Court found Obamacare constitutionally sound. The court is mostly conservative, too. Pick up a newspaper.

where will Romney's cuts come from, this is not just a poor versus rich divide, if cuts to IRS deductions are made such as eliminating the home mortgage interest deduction I do not know many people who weather that storm easily, you would like to believe in the man but I feel like i am getting sold a bridge somewhere, disappointed in the President for not going toe to toe with him, no home mortgage interest and I and my oxygen dependent wife lose our home at 60 plus years of age, don't look forward to that

@ OBAMA

I too am the President and I support gay marriage so much that I will not sign it into law as I have signed in this OBAMANATION called the "Affordable Care Act". What a joke. Lies to earn votes. By the way...I always use KY. You won't even know what hit you until its too late, but it will give you a warm tingly feeling on the inside.

I am not poor and a senior and I am voting for Obama. Romney shifts his ideas so much and cannot be trusted. Yes Mr. 47% and 14.5% paying taxes which he thinks is fair. Not trustworthy especially for seniors.

Yeah - it would be big trouble if osama got elected. Especially since he is dead.

Avatar

He does not care about the 47% he mentioned in his video. He wants to end Medicare/aid as it stands in protection to the elderly. He killed companies and paid himself big money which he puts in unknown bank accounts overseas. He does not share his tax returns with us because he knows we would not approve of their contents. There are so many reasons not to vote for this man, the list is endless. I don't need to say much more...

@ RomneySucks

Yea, well Obama took executive priviledge over documents pertaining to the "Fast and Furious" gun running scheme that his administration put forth that lead to the murder of thousands of innocent people in Mexico. "killed companies"? Where are your facts? How dumb are you people?

@ Matt

Obviously not as stupid as you, Matt, considering your lovely grammatical errors and misspelled words sprinkled throughout your posts! You're the poster child for why Obama needs four more years!

@ RomneySucks

Idiot! Obama was the one that didnt show tax returns! Romney showed them and paid 33% tax 1st and then an EXTRA 20% on the money that was already taxed! Get your facts straight dummy!

Avatar
@ Cory MD

2011 taxes he paid only 14.5% and thought it was fair-maybe you should get your facts straight. It was reported in the news and on the internet and he agreed that he did pay that amount.
