Focus on principles in the election

April 11, 2012

How about Americans focus on principles, not personalities, in the upcoming presidential elections? George W. Bush didn’t nearly destroy America, his policies did. President Barack Obama took a Republican idea of an individual mandate for health insurance. Some thought it was a great principle, until Obama signed on to it. Mitt Romney doesn’t even have the courage to stand up for it, even though he borrowed it from conservative think tanks and the like. Republican policies and philosophies keep us in financial turmoil and war, and Democrats routinely bring prosperity and peace. I get perplexed when I hear so many people who can’t wait to go back to the same failed policies with a different candidate.

    Are you joking? “Democrats routinely bring prosperity and peace”????? Have you been awake the last three years????

    Or are you so determined to blame the current mess on Republicans that you are willing to turn a blind eye to reality?
