zero’s promise was to stop the rise of the ocean and heal the planet, my promise is to help your family.

Mitt, I’m voting for you, but the words I don’t want to hear is “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

Just get out of the way!!!

Repeal obamacare!

He did say repeal and replace but I guess that's the way it has to be.

...fake????...,

The world tends to reject and desensitize us to goodness. Mitt can seem weird simply because he's a good man.

We need him desperately, keep trying.

A system that works, perhaps. Not 100% govt control from cradle to grave?

Maybe a little tweaking of brand name vs generics, perhaps interstate availibility of insurance? There are a lot of things one can replace obamacare with.

You could probably think of a few items yourself, couldn't you? To replace Obamacare with?

Yeah, that’s the part people forget. Mitt didn’t get so rich and have what looks to be a perfect family without busting his ass. The government didn’t give all that to him. He’s a sharp and competitive SOB.

He wants to win this thing.

Romney -

Everywhere he goes there are monuments to those who gave their life to America. There is no mention of their race, their religion, their political affiliation. They fought under a flag for the UNITED States of America.

If we don't win the senate..how can Obamacare be repealed? Onyx, I am praying that Ryan will have a huge impact on Romney and there is a flicker of hope. With Obommie the full blown Commie..we have nothing but doom and gloom.
I did like his promise to make America energy independent by the year 2020 by utilizing our natural resources. That being said dear one..I am very weary and tired of fighting so hard for so long. God save this great nation from the depths of hell that another Obama term will descend us into to as we are on the edge now.
