Our Founding Fathers believed that as responsible citizens we would all cast our ballots after careful review of the candidates and issues involved. Too many voters today seem to decide which candidates they will cast their ballot for based on the shallowest of reasons.
For example, while in a restaurant the other day I heard a woman say (I did not eavesdrop — she was loud) that she paid more income tax than Romney did and that therefore she could not vote for him. Romney paid his taxes based on investment income, not earned income. His rate was legally lower, but it is certain he paid more taxes than she did.
I'm also certain that at least one wealthy Democrat paid taxes at the same rate Romney did, and that he paid his full share of the taxes required by law. No one, except political opponents, has accused him of tax evasion, and those opponents have provided no more than unsupported accusations.
If a citizen will cast his vote based on such flimsy "evidence" as mentioned above, we cannot have the thoughtful and informed electorate our forefathers envisioned.
I therefore ask each citizen to give serious thought to the accomplishments, failures and goals of the current candidates and to cast an intelligent, not emotional, vote for the well-being of our great nation.
