Why I am Voting for the Romney/Ryan Ticket.

By Catherine Cooper | Oct 31, 2012

Mitt Romney is who we have as the Republican nominee to be President. Ryan is among my first choices for a Republican to be Vice-President. Voting for the team of Romney-Ryan, RR, is vital to save America. Vote for RR in the most important election since 1860. Hold RR accountable from day one in office. Here are ten top reasons to vote for RR:

  1. Jobs: Obama claims months of job growth when three times as many people stop looking for work for every one worker who finds a job. Obama's economy grows at a meager 1.2% putting millions more Americans on food stamps, in poverty and out of work. RR will grow 12 million jobs. It'll take growing $6 trillion in capital. RR's 5 point plan will do it.
  2. Taxes: Increasing taxes - by not renewing the Bush tax cuts -- attacks jobs. Adding the many taxes in Obamacare will kill more jobs. The economy will go back into Recession -- and maybe into Depression. RR will extend the current tax rates. They won't raise taxes. They will cut corporate taxes to make businesses more competitive -- and create jobs.
  3. Spending: Obama's spending doubled the National Debt. Obama increased the debt almost as much as all of the Presidents before him -- added together. The US is going bankrupt. Bankruptcy will destroy America. RR will cut spending. RR will reform Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid entitlements to make them viable. It's a necessary first step.
  4. Energy: RR will increase energy supplies, which lowers energy prices. Cheaper energy saves capital which creates jobs. RR will approve the pipeline from Canada -- with its new jobs. RR will make the US energy independent once again. RR will support coal production, not attack it with regulations.
  5. Defense: RR will reverse Obama's massive Defense cuts. Obama is throwing 80 thousand soldiers out of the Army -- reducing it by over a fifth. Our Army will be smaller than it was before the Korean War. RR will not signal weakness. The US will stop the appeasing.
  6. Presidential Powers: From the Czars in the White House, to the take over the auto corporations, to selling weapons to drug lords in 'Fast & Furious', to pumping money to contributors who bankrupt 'green' industries like Solyndra, to more Executive Orders than all Presidents combined, to ignoring Court orders and Congressional oversight, the abuse of power is growing from an imperial Presidency to a dictatorial Presidency. RR will obey their limited powers.
  7. Obamacare: RR will repeal Obamacare. Republicans will replace the key provisions, like protection for pre-existing conditions, that help. RR will prevent the Federal government from taking over one sixth of the economy -- and ruining it. RR will keep socialized medicine from destroying the best quality healthcare in the world.
  8. Supreme Court Nominations: The Supreme Court is one Obama justice from a Liberal/Progressive/Socialist/Sharia-compliant majority. Such a majority may make up 'law' as bad as Dred Scott and Roe v. Wade -- that lead to Constitutional crises across America. Justices will destroy the Constitution when they're supposed to uphold it. RR will nominate Justices to preserve the Constitution.
  9. The Deficit: Spending is out of control. Yes, there was a deficit before Obama. But it has spun out of control surpassing $16 trillion dollars with no sign of slowing under Obama. We can't hit a reset button and have this figure go away. This is a debt my kids and grand children's children will be addressing no matter who is elected. At least under a Romney/Ryan administration, the spending will slow.
  10. Diminishing America: Obama apologized for America, bows to foreign leaders and appeases militant Muslims. He is no friend to Israel. His timetable to retreat from Afghanistan insures surrender to the Taliban. His cuts to the military will cripple American power. Obama's destruction of the American economy is our downfall. Vote November 6th to restore America!

Don't forget that Obama "won" the Nobel Peace Prize for offering "Hope and Change." That was a joke. A very bad one.

Just a couple Of President Obama's Accomplishments

1. Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It will cover 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America’s long-term fiscal problems.

2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs.

3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tightens capital requirements on large banks and other financial institutions, requires derivatives to be sold on clearinghouses and exchanges, mandates that large banks provide “living wills” to avoid chaotic bankruptcies, limits their ability to trade with customers’ money for their own profit, and creates the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (now headed by Richard Cordray) to crack down on abusive lending products and companies.

4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011.

5. Began Drawdown of War in Afghanistan: From a peak of 101,000 troops in June 2011, U.S. forces are now down to 91,000, with 23,000 slated to leave by the end of summer 2012. According to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, the combat mission there will be over by next year.

6. Eliminated Osama bin laden: In 2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered.

7. Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry: In 2009, injected $62 billion in federal money (on top of $13.4 billion in loans from the Bush administration) into ailing GM and Chrysler in return for equity stakes and agreements for massive restructuring. Since bottoming out in 2009, the auto industry has added more than 100,000 jobs. In 2011, the Big Three automakers all gained market share for the first time in two decades. The government expects to lose $16 billion of its investment, less if the price of the GM stock it still owns increases.

8. Recapitalized Banks: In the midst of financial crisis, approved controversial Treasury Department plan to lure private capital into the country’s largest banks via “stress tests” of their balance sheets and a public-private fund to buy their “toxic” assets. Got banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government.

9. Repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”: Ended 1990s-era restriction and formalized new policy allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military for the first time.

10. Toppled Moammar Gaddafi: In March 2011, joined a coalition of European and Arab governments in military action, including air power and naval blockade, against Gaddafi regime to defend Libyan civilians and support rebel troops. Gaddafi’s forty-two-year rule ended when the dictator was overthrown and killed by rebels on October 20, 2011. No American lives were lost.

11. Told Mubarak to Go: On February 1, 2011, publicly called on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to accept reform or step down, thus weakening the dictator’s position and putting America on the right side of the Arab Spring. Mubarak ended thirty-year rule when overthrown on February 11.

12. Reversed Bush Torture Policies: Two days after taking office, nullified Bush-era rulings that had allowed detainees in U.S. custody to undergo certain “enhanced” interrogation techniques considered inhumane under the Geneva Conventions. Also released the secret Bush legal rulings supporting the use of these techniques.

13. Improved America’s Image Abroad: With new policies, diplomacy, and rhetoric, reversed a sharp decline in world opinion toward the U.S. (and the corresponding loss of “soft power”) during the Bush years. From 2008 to 2011, favorable opinion toward the United States rose in ten of fifteen countries surveyed by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, with an average increase of 26 percent.

14. Kicked Banks Out of Federal Student Loan Program, Expanded Pell Grant Spending: As part of the 2010 health care reform bill, signed measure ending the wasteful decades-old practice of subsidizing banks to provide college loans. Starting July 2010 all students began getting their federal student loans directly from the federal government. Treasury will save $67 billion over ten years, $36 billion of which will go to expanding Pell Grants to lower-income students.

15. Created Race to the Top: With funds from stimulus, started $4.35 billion program of competitive grants to encourage and reward states for education reform.

16. Boosted Fuel Efficiency Standards: Released new fuel efficiency standards in 2011 that will nearly double the fuel economy for cars and trucks by 2025.

17. Coordinated International Response to Financial Crisis: To keep world economy out of recession in 2009 and 2010, helped secure from G-20 nations more than $500 billion for the IMF to provide lines of credit and other support to emerging market countries, which kept them liquid and avoided crises with their currencies.

18. Passed Mini Stimuli: To help families hurt by the recession and spur the economy as stimulus spending declined, signed series of measures (July 22, 2010; December 17, 2010; December 23, 2011) to extend unemployment insurance and cut payroll taxes.

19. Began Asia “Pivot”: In 2011, reoriented American military and diplomatic priorities and focus from the Middle East and Europe to the Asian-Pacific region. Executed multipronged strategy of positively engaging China while reasserting U.S. leadership in the region by increasing American military presence and crafting new commercial, diplomatic, and military alliances with neighboring countries made uncomfortable by recent Chinese behavior.

20. Increased Support for Veterans: With so many soldiers coming home from Iraq and Iran with serious physical and mental health problems, yet facing long waits for services, increased 2010 Department of Veterans Affairs budget by 16 percent and 2011 budget by 10 percent. Also signed new GI bill offering $78 billion in tuition assistance over a decade, and provided multiple tax credits to encourage businesses to hire veterans.

21. Tightened Sanctions on Iran: In effort to deter Iran’s nuclear program, signed Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act (2010) to punish firms and individuals who aid Iran’s petroleum sector. In late 2011 and early 2012, coordinated with other major Western powers to impose sanctions aimed at Iran’s banks and with Japan, South Korea, and China to shift their oil purchases away from Iran.

O'Bama's "Hope and Change" mantra fooled a lot of gullible people the first time around. He is an abject failure as CEO of this nation and deserves to be fired. Americans deserves better! Vote Romney tomorrow!

Am glad we live in a country where we are allowed to make choices. The thing is that this election may be decided by those who choose not to vote. Makes no difference to me which party you support, but please vote. The future of our country is hanging in the balance. We need to find a way to move forward TOGETHER and we will. Here in mid-coast Maine we have learned to do that really well, Catherine, while living in the solution as  CAN DO people. That must be the reason for my deep respect for my Cuban friends with their resolver attitude. :)

Obama's not a liar? Obama;s not a blamer? Bush, Congress, a video anything but take responsibility, unless it is for killing Bin Laden. The election is tied up,and I am hoping for a Romney/Ryan win.

Well done Catherine.  We certainly need someone with private sector experience at this point.  Obama has been dissapointing and Romney deserves a chance.  We need to grow our way out of the mess.
