Despite the smoke and mirrors, the potential election of Romney/Ryan poses a great threat to the welfare of a vast majority of American citizens. Unless you're in the Armed Forces or a Defense Contractor and stand to directly benefit from the massive Reagan-like defense stimulus proposed by Romney and Ryan ( followed by an invasion of Syria as their statements in the press suggest ) then, if you're a Disabled American, a Veteran ( I'm both, a 100% disabled Vietnam Era Vet ), or Elderly or among the poor or working poor, then you stand to lose quite a bit. Your entire standard of living could possibly be affected. The GOP has already shown us their concerns, which happens to only be the rich and more of the same cowboy-ish, " Manifest Destiny " type incursions on sovereign nations that occurred during the Bush Administration. We have advanced by light years concerning foreign relations, and terrorist attacks have gone down. Imagine if we send more troops to the Middle East and provoke their governments? 1 9/11 or 100 9/11's ?
The safety, security, the mental and physical well being of ALL Americans are at stake here, which means the stakes are high. You have a choice, rhetoric and sound bytes and a known disastrous plan, or continue on the course towards recovery and prosperity.
