Obama deserves another term. While our government is rigged to transfer our nation’s wealth upwards, Romney wants to give away the kitchen sink. Giant banks are still too big to fail. Our U.S. government is still online for the next bailout. Romney says let the banking industry regulate itself. National elections are now flooded with money from super pacs that allow the money contributors to easily be hid from public view. Romney agrees corporations are people and their money is a form of free speech. Obama wants to do something about the 5-4 Supreme Court “Citizens United” decision that invalidated our former campaign finance laws in the name of free speech. It is the Republicans who are blocking efforts to address this absurd situation.
Romney recently generalized Obama supporters as dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims and untitled. Why not stand up to the wealthy who are dependent upon U.S. government funds? The top 10 military contractors whose profits come mostly from U.S. tax dollars are the biggest drain. Why is this industry allowed to use U.S. tax dollars to lobby for more of the same? That industry is rampant with fraud, brutal on whistleblowers, and has had millions of dollars disappear without accountability. Romney says give them more. At lease Obama wants to bring the troops back home.
