Originally Answered: Who is better, Obama or Romney?
-Romney would be the better choice for America. I was worried when I first saw Romney (although I am a republican), that he was going to be too far right on the political spectrum or an indesisive inconstant person, however after doing more research and watching the debates I feel that Romney would gives us a greater chance at fixing the infrastructure of America.
-While Obama always promises that he is going to solve the U.S.'s major issues (jobs, debt, war, etc...) I do not believe Obama has not done enough for our country, and has not even brushed what he promised back in 2008. Don't get me wrong, i'm not not some crazy radicalist sitting in my basment ranting about obama being useless, however i'm not willing to overlook the fact that obama did not even come close to his goals. In a final effort to have some significance as a president, he developed the idea for Obama-care. While im sure it came from good intentions and want to make sure less fortunate people get medical coverage, I however can't support Obama-care untill it no longer poses a serious threat to the very people it's trying to help . While it would do some good for the poor in America for a little while, its fundamentally the government saying that everyone has to get the same exact coverage whether you want that plan or not. Obama-care will also partially destroy social security by taking a majority of its funds, the other funds not sucked out of social security would be "borrowed" (China) to cover its costs, which will add close to $340 billion (and estimated to increase) to the debt. While he promises to increase education (which is strongly needed), there is a fundemental problem with his logic. He campaigned to decrease un-employment, while the national un-employment average and poverty percentages are actually increasing under his presidency. A better educated nation is a fantastic thing, if 50% of those educated people cant find a job other than McDonalds, our country becomes incredibly ineffeciant.
-Romney has proven to be a more efficiant leader during his time as goverener, and also the buisness experiance that Romney has gained would prove to be a monumental asset to our country (can someone please tell me why many people are frightened at the idea of a president knowing how to handle money our money effeciantly?). That being said, Romney is far from being a perfect, however I think he is substantionally more likely to accomplish his goals (due to the fact he has a plan rather than speaches . On the topic of Romneys veiws, I'm confused by the girl that posted that "Romney is against womens rights." Where has Romney ever stated that he planned to reduce womens rights in any of his speaches? He's obviously pro-life, but ive never seen him grow a hitler stache and promise to "put women back in the kitchen" or anything like that, so please don't go moving out of the country after watching MSNBC, read a few articles from un-biased websites, try to sort out the biased articles from those in the middle ground, and form your own well informed ideas.
-In my opinion America cannot have another 4 years of hollow promises and unfufilled goals. That is why Romney is a better choice for president. What I think, however, is not very relevant as I am just some guy whose article you might have bothered to read. Whats really important is that you take the time to come up with your own opinion, not based solely on what your freinds or your parents think. The only way we are going to elect the best president for our country is if people bother to look up what a president has/or is really doing, instead of glancing for a little d or r under their name on the ballet.
