race for the White House seems to be turning in President Barrack
Obama’s favor especially after a video surfaced of Mitt Romney speaking
at a Florida fundraiser. In the video he said 47 percent of Americans
don’t pay taxes. His statement is correct but what he went on to say
angered many. He stated that 47 percent of Americans have a victim
mentality and feel entitled to our Government entitlement programs. He
sounded as if he was saying nearly half of our country is made up of
the same video Romney stated 47 percent of Americans won’t take
responsibility for their lives and that he won’t win those people over
because they will vote for Obama. He came off in the video as if he
doesn't care for nearly half of America.
there abuse within the welfare system you bet there is but many people
in our country the ones Mitt Romney appears to be dismissing don’t want
to be in that situation. Many are retirees barely getting by and
millions of others have lost Jobs, homes, and their savings. They have
truly fallen on severe difficulties not the moochers Mitt Romney makes
them out to be.
large percentage of our country’s homeless are veterans living on the
streets of America going through their daily routine mostly ignored.
Many people have lost their self-respect, their dignity, and feel as if
they are failures in life. They feel they have fallen flat on their face
unable to get back on their feet.
flat on your face does not make one a failure remaining flat on your
face defines a failure. The moment you pick yourself up and brush
yourself off is the moment you take a fresh start in life. There are
those who think they can’t and give up trying and there are those who
think they can and continue on against all adversity. That is the true
measure of one’s character and it is not gauged in times of comfort and
convenience but rather it is measured in times of challenge and
voters feel our country lacks vision and leadership and they are not
really satisfied with the 2012 Presidential choices. That won’t stop
many from voting though but I don’t think this will be the year of Mitt
Romney. He is trying to pass himself off as a great righteous soul a man
for all the people but he seems to have made quite a lot of missteps
throughout his campaign. The missteps were mostly due to saying the
wrong things at the wrong time to the wrong people.
is searching for a leader who will tell them not what they want to hear
but the truth. They are searching for a great soul that can provide our
country with vision and direction toward a brighter future.
souls enter the world and become known by the sheer force of their
opposition from small mediocre minds. The light that emanates from these
extraordinary leaders will always dissipate the darkness from the
mediocrity. The Republican Party however is trying to win over the
American people through mediocre leadership.
matter who wins the election America will still have rough times ahead
but our country has been in rougher times in the past. We always pull
through in times of great need and our country has enjoyed the fruits of
our labor in times of plenty.
national character will always be measured though by how well we reach
out to those of the least influence, the unseen, the undetected, and the
downtrodden those with the least means to stand on their own.
suppose in Mitt Romney’s eyes those who care for the poor are the Obama
people and I suppose that is why I will be casting my vote for Barrack
Obama in 2012.
