So, let me get this straight: If 47 percent of the people in this country are leeches who live on government handouts,, then who are the 53 percent? Are they those who pay federal income taxes (FIT). As a full time accounting employee by day with my fair share of FIT pulled from my pay checks, I guess that makes me one of the 53 percent?
But 47 + 53 = 100. Oh that's right, the wealthy don't count; they don't pay taxes under your rule. I'm not impressed with your math, Mitt!
President Barack Obama? One cannot help but respect Mama and Papa Obama for how they attempt to give Malia and Sasha a "normal" life while residing on Pennsylvania Avenue. I admire the first lady for her focus on fitness and eating right, since I recently lost 50 pounds myself.
While having great values are noble, Obama has proven he should not be at the helm in the Oval Office. His "take over the world" foreign policy strategy, insisting on piling up more debt on defense overseas makes me feel like it's only a matter of time.
Our ship is sinking. Our treasure is falling to the bottom of the deep blue--soon it will be buried with such density it may never be recoverable. Obama's leadership simulates a black oil slick spreading across bloody red waters. Negligently spilling, bailing out, killing every living and lucrative thing in his wake...nothing but death and dying on his watch.
Our military suicide rate has sky rocketed in the last four years. Remember Tacoma? Joint base Lewis-McChord, we have the highest rate of soldiers killing themselves. But your recent visit on Air Force One was not for the troops, was it? You came to the Great Northwest to raise funds for your campaign, not to apologize or take action for not keeping your word.
In 2008, you said, "I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank."
Since I am not interested in a president who can't even keep his "first thing I will do" goals in tact, nor the other one who needs to brush up on his addition; then who am I willing to hire to manage my FIT?
I could send a message to those in Washington D.C. and writein, like many across the Internet are vowing to do. Not because they think their great mentor will win in this corrupt election, they simply will not vote for people they do not trust. Period!
Instead of defeat, many are taking seats in their local government, still fighting in the Campaign for Liberty: aiming to cut government spending, defending personal freedoms, working to live in a country with money that still has value and dreaming of a future with a strong heart beat thumping out life in a reviving, thriving economy.
The former governor of New Mexico, our Libertarian party nominee, may be worth some serious research. He's fiscally conservative, and wants to bring our troops and dollars home.

So much to think about, so little time. As a p.m. 4.0 Business major, and an a.m. money cruncher, you can bet I will keep plenty of tape in my 10-key. I will diligently do my homework looking for the best way to use my vote for the betterment of the United States of America. After all, sometimes buried treasure is recovered, especially by those who are willing to search for it.
