Change some things...

Here is how I would re-write it... if you would allow my take on how it should be written...

In 18 days, we head to the polls to cast our vote for the President. And about 95% of us will be voting for either President Obama, or Governor Romney.

However, the fact is that NEITHER of these two men have done a single thing to deserve the votes most Americans will give them.

Under Obama, we have seen the “Nobel Peace Prize” winner further expand our military adventurism around the globe, and without proper Congressional approval for his actions. We have seen the debt ceiling raised multiple times, because our debt is not controlled. We have seen continued and further erosion of our liberties with the reauthorization of the Patriot Act, and the signing of the NDAA which allows for the indefinite detention of American citizens without due process. We have seen the further deterioration of our economy, further devaluation of our currency, and rule by executive order. We have also seen criminal misconduct by Attorney General Eric Holder on the infamous “Fast and Furious” program that has led to his being found in Contempt of Congress for his lack of transparency. An American teenager suspected of nothing is dead today because of the drone strikes authorized by our current President. There are dead diplomats that would be alive today if it weren't for the actions of the current administration.

With Governor Romney, however, it gets no better; his proposals will only expand our military footprint even further, his budget plans will fail to shrink our unsustainable debt, even if he follows the plan of Rep. Paul Ryan. Ryan’s proposals cut nothing, balance no budgets for approximately three decades, and even with that, it takes unrealistic growth in this country for the entire time to achieve balance. Romney also will continue on with the tradition of cronyism as our economic philosophy, following in Obama's footsteps. He supports many of the same legislation Obama has, such as the NDAA and the Patriot Act, amongst many others. The author of the Obama Care taxpayer-subsidized health insurance program for Massachusetts is not about to “repeal and replace” this bill. Why would he? He wrote it! He also supports through his policies a continued level of debt and currency devaluation, and has spoken often in support of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and his counterfeiting policies. He supported the bailouts of the banks (TARP), and the auto industry. This speaks nothing of the numerous underhanded tactics committed at the hands of the RNC and Team Romney during the 2012 Primary/Caucus cycle. And I haven’t even begun to address his constant change of positions, as he has been on both sides of almost every issue.

If neither man will follow the restrictions placed on them by the Constitution – the very document they will swear to “defend, protect, and uphold” – then NEITHER man deserves our support in November. There are OTHER choices on the ballot; please study them, consider them, and pick someone you feel deserves your vote!
