OPINION: The Critical Vote Ahead for President

This writer says there's much at stake on Nov. 6 and that Mitt Romney is the best choice. Do you agree?

Our country faces an important week ahead; one can vote for Mitt Romney or
President Obama.

I would like to voice my opinion on the President because I deeply care for the direction of this country. President Obama is a foul-mouthed liar, and he called Governor Mitt Romney a “bullsh-er.” What type of dishonorable speech is that? That is so unprofessional and non-presidential. That is not the end of Obama. In Obamacare, he is trying to mask up all the details. For example, if an individual has cancer and wants to go straight to chemotherapy, they CAN’T. They have to follow, step by step, the steps of cancer treatment THAT THE GOVERNMENT PRESCRIBES! Talk about freedom of choice. Would you want to decide you own treatment or have a bunch of liberal Democrats in Washington decide for you?

Obama wants to tax the middle class, hijack the Constitution as well as our rights, and kill our future generations. Those are just several of the incalculable reasons why you should vote against President Obama on November 6. Michigan has 16 electoral votes, and everyone should stand firmly against the lies and trickery of the President. He is shoving American down the wastebasket, and he will live happily ever after as a "former President" while as Americans, we struggle under the weight of his abominable policies. Thus, I urge everyone eligible to vote against President Barack Obama on Nov. 6.

Ben Moy,

Gee NC I didn't realize I was so important to you to have you stalk my patch comments so intensely. Nice to know I have so much power over you to generate such an emotional response. You said you have no interest in the discussion so it's clearly me that draws your attention. Interesting. By the way witches are women men are warlocks.

Obama, I believe, is not doing his job. on the other hand we should not put him down.

Well Louise, the problem that Bush left Obama was actually started under the Clinton White House was well as help from Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. Now if we are going to start the blame game, lets make sure we hold everyone responsible instead of trying to put the blame on just one party. Cause at last checkboth parties equally guilty. Let's remember too, that 44 has managed to do a few things that will add to the problems we face. Lets start with $6 trillion of new debt. And don't come back with let's tax the rich. That is a red herring. There aren't enough to tax at 100% to begin to even make a dent in the debt levels we have.

Ben, while I think in many cases you and I might agree on the direction we need to take as a country. Your vitriol and hostility towards the Presidents, does nothing to help our cause. In fact, in many ways, I think it hurts our position. This level of hostility and anger towards the President has given the Democrats, time and time again, the ammunition to label us radicals, angry white guys, fringe radicals, feel free to choose whatever adjective works. I can not defend you or your comments. You do yourself and all repubs and conservatives a disjustice by your words.

Personally, I believe that President Obama has been given a chance to do what he promised he would do. He has not balanced the budget like he promised, he has not got through the budget line by line eliminating wasteful spending, he has not closed GITMO, he has covered up what happened in Libya and used the excuse of an ongoing investigation time and time again to keep the truth from us. He has added $6 trillion in new debt to our already strained system.. Furthermore, he has provided no leadership or guidance around what he is going to do in his next term if he is re-elected. If we raise taxings on the wealthy and role them back to the Clinton era, fine, but how are you going to spend that money? More programs, expand government further? or start to pay down this debt. Getting to a balanced budge by 2020 means that incoming and outgoing money balanced. But that doesn't say anything about paying down the 16 trillion we already owe. Not to mention the 8 trillion more we will have add to the debt in the mean time to get to 2020. The People of this country need to wake up and begin to understand the issues we face. It is complicated, but you need to start to listen and pay attention.
