UPDATE 15 OCTOBER 2012 --- Is that really who you want to vote for? Read this article and think again. He avoided drafting while other boys went to Vietnam. Then he goes back a plays the devoted American. He pulls down $7.5million mansion to built an even bigger one at a time when ordinary people have not got the money to buy food. Both action show irresponsibility and could-not-care-less as long he is all right.
This is the trouble these days with election. They get run on how much money the candidate has and most properly are also the winning point. Especially today, in a world with nothing but debts and uncertainty; election candidates should have clear view of the struggle of the masses. In other words the politician should be coming out of the crowd and worked his way up. He would understand how hard it is to survive in desperate time like these. It might be good idea to go back to this again. At least they know what we are talking about.
This is definitely not the case with Mitt Romney. He is the son of Michigan governor and the family is more than well off. The when his draft paper for the army came he ran away to France and made a fortune. Whenever the government sent another demand to report to the army he just returned it twice till they stopped sending it. While he was sure that he wouldn’t be called up he returned to America. Now trying to be elected as the next president he plays the devoted to his country son. They always put it out as a Missionary for the Mormon time in France.
When he came back he multiplied his money and made a fortune within a short time. He is now worth £138million
His wife with all due respect came a very wealthy family and never worked or knew how to make the last dollar last. Both had nothing but a live of luxury and now they campaign for the White House.
The USA has the same economic trouble and the people are more than hard up. All the last few years they lost their house and homes. How can people understand and work for them to make it better. Furthermore, how much political experience Mitt Romney has? When he was in England he didn’t give a very expression of manners. First of all to write in his book how pathetic the UK is and criticizing and making fun of the preparation of the Olympics. It is certainly not very diplomatic and doesn’t any education and manners. It became so bad that he had to leave after two days which never happen before.
What it is said all along in this article proved because the Romneys filled in an application to bulldoze their California beach-front house worth £7.5million to build another on the site but four times bigger. With all due respect but is shows a way of thinking and lifestyle which is way above millions of ordinary Americans and at a time of great hardship makes you wonder is it necessary. Also, if he is elected will he understand the needs of the ordinary American people to bring about jobs and better living standard?
In Britain we also have at the moment nothing billionaires right from childhood and it shows they just don’t have an idea. All they think would pull-out the cart is to cut and cut and cut. They don’t see that cutting loses production and workers their jobs. That means more unemployed and unemployment benefits paid out for nothing because they don't produce anything or pay any taxes.
Although all these facts are an eye opener but it is not meant to influence the voters. The voters have to look at all the facts of their candidates and see which one would be the best to serve the country and this is the most important point. So chose wisely because the way the economy is in it means make or brake a country. Never mind what they promise but look at the background of the man where his principles were formed.
