Have your voice heard

Published 11:00 pm Saturday, October 20, 2012

In regards to Noel L. Jackson’s letter to the editor on Oct. 14 titled “Obama’s Miracles,” we are trying to decide if he is pointing out how make-believe Barack Obama has been as a president or if he really believes that everything he reads or hears, no matter the source or credibility, is gospel.

Nonetheless, we decided to voice our views on the upcoming election from us, previously middle income people who now find ourselves almost in poverty.

If we could send a message to all undecided voters, we would ask that they temporarily make decisions to forget about religion, forget about gay marriages, forget about abortion issues. Zero in on which of the two men running has the better chance because of his qualifications to bring Congress together to compromise and make decisions to begin a turnaround in our country on jobs and small business growth, tax incentives for companies to begin hiring, a change in treaties on imports and exports, a new policy to regain global superiority and prestige around the world, and to pass legislation to reduce our debt.

No matter how you like or dislike Obama, even when he had a Democratic majority he failed miserably on getting Congress to work together. The only change he made was passing Obamacare. We are on Social Security and can say from experience that all of our medical expenses cost more now. If we allow four more years of the same foolish legislation, there will only be richer and poorer income families in America. Every little dictator giant will be able to influence our governmental global decisions.

Enough is enough. Consider voting for the only man who stands the better chance of making needed global and internal changes in our policies. We believe that if the economy begins to get better, and our world status is improved, then we can concentrate on all of those other issues we have put aside in order to elect Mitt Romney.

Please exercise one of your few remaining liberties and vote.
