THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Use common sense in voting for president

— This is a plea to voters to use their common sense when voting for president. Obama has no positive record to run on. His vote-buying giveaways with tax money on borrowed money are without precedent. Obamacare was crafted behind closed doors and voted in while most people still do not know what all it contains.

He has been ineffective in foreign policy, always apologizing for the United States. He was deceptive on the Libya incident with four Americans being killed in a terrorist attack. President Obama is the most pro-abortion president we have ever had. As an Illinois Senator, he voted three times against the Child Protection Act, which would allow babies that survived abortion to live. How barbaric is that? He seems to have a hostility toward people of biblical faith. Our national debt is a disgrace. The military has been down-sized and the job situation is grim. We are in grave danger of losing our freedom if Obama is re-elected.

If you care about your country please use your common sense and vote for Mitt Romney.
