Pay attention to positions of Romney's associates

Mitt Romney insists that jobs are the most important things to think about.

But think about the other things the Republicans, the tea party and the religious right are saying. Romney has embraced them all at one time or another.

Will it mean we allow people to get sick and have no medical care? Will it mean that food stamps aren't available for the many who need them? Will it mean that women no longer have control of their own bodies? Will it mean judges who will deny women that right?

President Barack Obama has done an amazing job considering whom he had to work with. Obama wants jobs as well as our freedoms. Consumerism is not an answer, only a temporary Band-Aid. Our freedoms should be forever.
