With November right around the corner, people might find themselves asking the question “Who should I vote for?” You may be following the election campaigns, watching the debates, catching a few details from news stories, and finally decide both candidates seem to be a legitimate choice. The clear cut presidential hopeful, however, is Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney has based his campaign off a five-point plan. The first point of this plan is to achieve energy independence by 2020. His second point is to expand trade for America, which means expanding opportunities for businesses, furthering competition and economic stimulation. The third is to provide better public schools and more access to higher levels of education. Point four is to reduce the deficit our nation faces by reducing the size of the federal government. His final point is to promote small business.
Romney believes that it’s small businesses that fuel and run our economy. According to his official website, “small businesses are the engine of job creation in this country, but they will struggle to succeed if taxes and regulations are too burdensome or if a government in Washington does its best to stifle them.” Romney wants to be a man for the American people.
Romney is goal-oriented in a way that will benefit Americans. He bases his ideals for economic growth on three basic principles: free enterprise, hard work and innovation. Through his plans, Romney aims to reduce taxes and spending of government programs, as well as increase trade and energy production to enhance the job market. With more people at work and receiving paychecks, the more money there is to spend and help stimulate the economy to a place of stability.
Romney says he will, as president, “safeguard America and secure our country’s interests and most cherished ideals.” He vows to create a sense of safety for the American people both from foreign threats and militant powers to economic downfalls. He also says that “our friends and allies will not have doubts about where we stand and what we will do to safeguard our interests and theirs.” Romney wants to re-establish the United States as a prominent world power to be taken seriously.
Come November, you’re going to go to the polls or you’re not. You’re going to vote for presidential hopeful Mitt Romney or President Obama. However, when it comes to getting what we need as a country, the clear cut choice is Mitt Romney.
