President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, presidential hopeful Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan all have frequented the State of Florida in recent weeks. With 29 electoral votes up for grabs, the State of Florida is crucial in deciding who will be the next president.
That said, we can expect a lot more visits from the candidates before Election Day. The candidates are wooing Florida voters by weighing-in on immigration, Medicare and the economy — all issues that are of particular importance to Florida voters.
South Florida is home to some of America’s wealthiest residents who will be voting for Mitt Romney. However, it is also home to the middle class and some of America’s poorest. No middle class or poor person should be voting for Romney after his declaration at a recent fundraiser in Florida, saying he does not care about 47 percent of people and folks that he considers “free loaders [that] don’t earn enough to pay income taxes.”
This is in stark contrast to Romney and his cronies who earn millions but still don’t want to pay their fair share of income taxes. The truth is Romney has written off the votes and voters of the 47 percent — in essence writing off millions of citizens. The people he was referring to are the elderly, the disabled, veterans and families who receive income credits. If you haven’t done so already, please take the time and register to vote by October 9th so that you are eligible to vote in the General Election on November 6, 2012.
Romney doesn’t want our votes and according to him he is not expecting to get our vote. In fact he calls 47 percent of American voters moochers who see themselves as victims and will vote for Obama. Why would anyone want to vote for a candidate who runs a company that prides itself in driving companies into bankruptcy and loves to fire people? It’s obvious to most Americans that Romney is oblivious to the issues confronting most Americans. With the election less than 35 days away there is no time to teach him the American way of life. Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney declares he won’t be getting our votes and we need to make sure he is right.
