Are we better off now than 4 years ago?
I shudder at the thought of America, had McCain become the president. I know Mr. McCain’s proclivities, itching for war, and eagerness to show “them boys” who we are. He would have gone to war with Libya, Tunisia, Yemen, Egypt, Syria and Iran and no doubt we would have carpet bombed and burned those nations to the ground, but it would have ruined America, even more than the Iraq war had done. We would have been devastated. At least I have an America now that did not run aground, thanks to President Obama’s foreign policy.
WILL we be better off 4 years from now?
It was Bush’s reckless war mongering that got us into trouble in the first place. We forget that it was Bush who signed a $700 billion bail out for Wall Streeters so they could pay bonuses to the CEO’s of failing banks.
If Romney becomes the president, we are doomed. His war mongering will destroy us and wipe out the average American family. However nothing will happen to him, like the Bush-Cheney team, they have their own safe havens. The average American will not have a job, a home, no food stamps and no health care.
As a Republican myself, a Romney presidency frightens me. He is a ruthless business man and his attitude would be, if you are sick, take care of yourselves, government is not in the business of taking care of you. I’m afraid it is a game of survival of the fittest. Maybe he is invincible like some of the right-wingers, but most Americans are vulnerable at one time or another in their lives. You will not even have food stamps to rely on.
His effort to appease Netanyahu and his ilk (Not Israel, as Netanyahu does not represent the will of the majority of the people of Israel or Jews around the world), he may give a green signal to Israel to bomb Iran. What Bush did to America, Romney will double it. The average American gets the shaft, while these guys have safe heavens to live in.
