Letters to the Editor

Romney has plans to succeed

I am writing this letter in support Mitt Romney. I believe that he is the best candidate for president. Even President Obama said that if I can’t do it in one term I don’t deserve another. Well, he is right. He doesn’t deserve another. The only thing he has succeeded in doing is dividing our country by playing the race and class warfare game.

Mitt Romney is not only a good businessman and former governor, but he is also a good person who cares deeply about people. He is willing to go above and beyond to help those who are in need as he has shown in past instances. He is a religious man who believes in God and believes our forefathers wanted God to be a part of our foundation. He is a true conservative who knows what is needed to bring this country out of the debt it is in and to get people back to work. He has a plan to reduce the deficit by eliminating non-security discretionary spending. He also wants a cap on federal spending and to give the states the responsibility for handling programs that they can implement more efficiently. He is a champion for small businesses and will work to reduce the taxes on both the individual taxpayer as well as the businesses. He will stop the increases in regulations that are tangling job creators up in red tape, which will create more jobs.

He believes in energy independence by increasing access to domestic energy resources and eliminating regulations that are destroying the coal industry and would approve the Keystone XL pipeline. This is something we really need. We must become energy independent especially with the cost of gas and electricity skyrocketing and the recent events in the Middle East.

His plan also includes giving families access to great schools and quality teachers. He believes that the teachers and students deserve much better than they are now getting. Too much is being spent on the bureaucrats in the administrative offices and not enough on teacher’s salaries and the students in the classroom. He wants job training programs to help those who don’t want to go to college so they can learn a skill that aligns with opportunities for jobs. He wants to replace Obamacare with real health care reform that controls cost and improves care.

You may not agree with me. But when you go into the voting booth on Nov. 6, please ask yourself what President Obama has done to make my life better. My answer would be nothing. I am voting for Mitt Romney for president. With him and Paul Ryan as a team, I believe we will succeed in getting our nation back to work.
