Disregard inaccuracies in deciding your vote

info@islandpacket.comNovember 4, 2012 

If you are one of the 47 percent who earns less than $250,000 per year, respect women and believe in their rights and the fairness for the middle class, then you should consider voting for President Barack Obama. Consider voting for Bobbie Rose for Congress if you care about women's rights.

If you are wealthy and earn more than $250,000 per year, do not respect women's rights and care nothing about the 47 percent, then you might consider voting for Mitt Romney.

Romney rehearsed and rehearsed for the first debate, while Obama was running the country. He memorized his script just as actors do. We know that movies and plays are fantasy. The actors are not whom they portray. The real person is shown when he or she speaks or acts when they think the world is not listening. Well, we were listening and we now know that Romney cares nothing about us.

We also know that Obama is accused of taking $716 billion out of the Medicare system to fund Obamacare. But the truth of the matter is that the $716 billion will be taken from wasted programs and put into other programs within the system to enhance health care in the long haul. There are many more inaccuracies, and even when corrected, they are still being said.
