Skip to comments.(ABQ Journal) Editorial: Mitt Romney Is Best To Fix U.S. Direction
Posted on 11/04/2012 5:11:16 PM PST by CedarDave
... after virtually a full term in office, the administration of President Barack Obama has been an economic failure. While he said he would work to end partisan gridlock, he has done the opposite. Even with two years of Democratic majorities in both houses, these have been some of the least productive Congresses in American history. And polls have shown that the Affordable Care Act, Obamas greatest political success, remains a source of deep division among Americans. At best, it replaces one problem lack of coverage with another lack of medical infrastructure needed to treat newly insured. It does nothing to control costs and will drive up premiums for those with insurance.
On foreign policy, critics cite his practice of leading from behind as enabling a renewal of anti-American Islamic radicalism, most recently seen in the attack on the American consulate in Libya and the presidents reaction.
It is time for a change in direction, and Republican candidate Mitt Romney is the choice to begin restoring economic health and Americas place in the world.
Romneys economic philosophy is that the private sector, not increased government, is the engine of job growth and that the governments role is to carefully encourage and nurture it. His views on tax reform include caps on or the elimination of some deductions coupled with lower marginal rates. His political appointees to key departments like the Environmental Protection Agency, the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission could be expected to create a regulatory atmosphere that would be charged with protecting Americans but also be more friendly to economic growth and investment and thus, job creation. He would enhance Americas energy independence by supporting all sources, from wind and solar to oil, gas and nuclear.

Early voted myself yesterday - only a short wait. NM uses paper ballots read by optical scanners. If there is a machine malfunction, they can be counted by hand. Also, NM has done away with precinct voting - all voting is done at centralized locations (you can chose the one you go to). After verifying your name, address and birth date (my ID was not asked for), you sign an electronic pad and a printed ballot is generated showing candidates running in your precinct. And as soon as you sign the pad, the computer notes your name and that you have voted, preventing going to another location or voting another day. All very fast and efficient, very little paper like in the past.
NM list PING!

Well, now I have seen it all.
Here in Grant County (includes Silver City) I voted early at the clerks office and there was not an electric pad to sign. There have already been 2 challenges on voters registered to vote elsewhere in the state voting here.
” - - - It is time for a change in direction, and Republican candidate Mitt Romney is the choice to begin restoring economic health and Americas place in the world.”
THIS IS HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If the Albuquerque Metro votes for Romney/Ryan, the State of New Mexico will have turned to the RIGHT.
Do you think they are simply endorsing the guy they think will win?
However, the Editor had a lot of topics in his/her editorial. For example:
” - - - On foreign policy, critics cite his practice of leading from behind as enabling a renewal of anti-American Islamic radicalism, most recently seen in the attack on the American consulate in Libya and the presidents reaction.”
calls into question Benghazi-Coward Obama’s “FOLLOW from Behind” non-foreign policy/foreign policy.
New Mexico voters have few reasons to vote for proven Coward Obama.
I think the computers are only county wide, but I don't know for sure.
It took me 20 minutes to walk from my law office to the early voting site, stand in line, vote for every republican and against every ballot measure and walk back to my office. Love early voting!
