ISSUES FOR VOTERS AND MY COMMENTS
By: Edward P. Shallow
A point of interest, in all the years since D-Day 1945 there are only three occasions when the sitting President of the United States failed to go on Memorial Day, to the D-Day Monument that honors the soldiers killed during the Invasion.
The only three…
1. Barack Obama 2010
2. Barack Obama 2011
3. Barack Obama 2012
For the past 68 years, every single president, except Obama, has paid tribute to the fallen American soldiers killed on D-Day.
This year, instead of honoring the soldiers, he made a 3,000 mile campaign trip on Air Force 1 to California to raise funds for the upcoming election.
Priorities? It speaks volumes… doesn’t it?
Peace through Strength is essential to the survival of the United States
Economic strength will be the source to secure America, and considering the failure of the Obama administration to unleash the free enterprise system for that reason it is essential to elect Mitt Romney. Responding to a question put forth in the second debate relative to the economy, Mr. Romney recited the economic failings of the last four years, piling on fact after depressing fact.. “I can tell you that if you were to elect President Obama, you know what you are going to get. You’re going to get a repeat of the last four years. We just can’t afford four more years like the last four years”.
Obama seeks to promote Socialism over Capitalism. He also wants to rule outside the Constitution as he did with granting legal status to thousands of illegals.
In conjunction with economic strength the people will demand a strong military. One we don’t have now. Romney has indicted the President is cutting $1 trillion out of our military spending.
To me this is an act of betrayal of our security; the American people must not accept it.
Our Navy is smaller than it has been since 1917. We had a 600 ship navy under Reagan. We now have 300.
Our Air Force is smaller and older than any time since 1947..
Romney will restore our military.
Government should be an enabler not an obstruction. A perfect example, the Obama administration created 13,000 more pages of regulations that hinder job creators.
The political debate over environmental policy will come to the fore if Mitt Romney becomes president, he will most certainly seek relief from the burdensome regulations that stifle America from becoming energy independent.
Many voters declare they are energy voters, of which I am one. If America is to obtain that independence, it is essential Romney be given a majority in the United States Senate. The voters of Massachusetts will have to do their part by re-electing Scott Brown who is committed to building the pipeline from Canada to the United States.
The election of Elizabeth Warren, in my opinion prevent Republicans from gaining the majority needed to implement Romney’s policies. Warren would be a vote against energy independence most Americans yearn for and OPEC disdains.
The Democrats Utopian plan will never work (Obamacare)
In a past article on Obamacare I indicated; Be aware, the communist Manifesto clearly states, “He who controls your health needs, controls you permanently.”
In a letter authored by Stephen E. Fraser, MD, a practicing anesthesiologist in Indianapolis, addressed to Senator Bayh before Congress passed legislation he states:
“As a practicing physician I have major concerns with the health care bill in Congress. I actually have read the bill and am shocked by the brazenness of the government’s proposed involvement in the patient-physician relationship. The very idea that the government will dictate and ration patient care is dangerous and certainly not helpful in designing a health care system that works for all. Every physician I work with agrees that we need to fix our health care system, but the proposed bills will be a disaster if passed. I ask you respectfully and as a patriotic American to look at the following lines I have read in the bill. You can not possibly believe that these proposals are in the best interests of the country and our fellow citizens.”
I will list but a few of the items the doctor mentions.
Page 42 The Health Choices Commissioner will choose your HC benefits for you
Page 59 Government will have direct access to your bank accounts for elective funds transfer.
Page 241 it doesn’t matter what specialty you have trained yourself in-you will be paid the same! (Just try to tell me that is not Socialism!)
Page 425 the government mandates “Advance-care Planning Consult.” Think senior citizens end-of -life patients.
Thank God Romney is determined to eradicate this disastrous legislation.
