This year’s election could turn out to be one of the most important and close elections in history. The Republicans have officially nominated Senator Mitt Romney along with his vice president candidate Paul Ryan and the Democrats have officially nominated President Barack Obama and his current vice president, Joe Biden. With the shape that the country is in right now, it is very important that voters look more at what each candidate has done and will do rather than simply what party they are from. President Obama had his chance for “Change.” He just did not specify if his change was going to be good or bad. (I think we all know the answer to that though). President Obama’s health care plan only threatens to throw us into deeper debt and make it more difficult to receive the quality care that America is famous for internationally. Yes, it will be available to everyone, but look at a country such as Canada that already has such a program in place! Their people come to America to get good care. Where will we go? President Obama has also proven that he takes absolutely no responsibility for his actions and economic failures. As he so aptly put it, it’s fault. True the debt was big when Bush was president, but it has increased another 5 trillion since President Obama. How exactly is that change? Senator Romney promises to do many things but several will prove to be very important. Aside from curtailing government spending, consolidating government organizations, and reducing taxes on people and small businesses, Senator Romney plans to approve a 1,179 mile long Keystone XL Pipeline from Hardisty, Alberta to Steele City, Nebraska to help decrease or independence on foreign oil as well as lower gas prices. All of these things will greatly help the American economy. This election is not only important financially, but also morally. President Obama has proven that he has no regard for human life or Christianity. True, Senator Romney is not a Christian, he is a Mormon, but while Mormons are off doctrinally from Christians, they are very moral, God honoring people that respect human life. Morality is what has made America great so far, and the only thing that will keep it great. I believe that while Senator Romney is not the perfect choice, he is the far better choice in this election to set our country on the road to recovery. President Obama’s economic policies will only bring us closer and closer to becoming a fully socialistic country.
