As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

Romney & Republicans Use Confusion To Deceive Voters

In order to get elected Romney and the Republicans are counting on you being confused about their positions on the issues from the general to the specific and isn't that interesting? They would have you believe they are honest, Christian and forthright but doesn't keeping their agenda in the dark reveal to you the fruits of what they are truly about. They want to sneak their agenda by you and get it into power which is an agenda that will give all favor to the rich and give the rest of us the same "unconcern" that they have given us for over the last 10 years. They know that globilization will reduce the American pie and so when the going is getting tough they want all the little that remains.

On Their Budget Plan:
They claim to have the financial solution for our problems but will not tell us how they intend to get there even after economic experts show they cannot get there. After each challenge to tell us what loopholes they will shut and what they will cut Romney refuses and Ryan refuses as he blatently did in his debate with Biden. They have the big answer to the "terrible" responsible Obama but it's gonna be a secret.

On Abortion:
There is of course more. Romney comes out now stating he will not take action to stop abortion after posing himself as pro-life to get the religious rights support for the nomination.  My question to the religious right is "how long will you keep falling for this stuff and what do you think now?" Now the difference between the parties on this is next to zero that is if you believe the latest out of the confusion coming from the mouth of Romney.  Boy if the scripture, "God is not the author of confusion" could ever be applied it certainly could be applied to the Republican's schemes and smokescreens. There's more.

On Healthcare Pre-Existing Conditions:
Romney would lie and deceive you on healthcare as well. The blight on healthcare that has been plaguing people for so long has been the insurance companies exclusion of those with pre-existing conditions which the Affordabe Care Act is addressing by eliminating those pre-existing conditions. Everyone fully knows what the issue is today with regard to the elimination of pre-existing conditions but Romney comes out before a national audience and proclaims that he is against pre-existing conditions and then he says no more. He leaves it at that in hopes of getting support from those supporting Obamacare's elimination of pre-existing conditions but what he secretly means but doesn't say is that he is against pre-existing conditions for those already with healthcare but the whole issue that has been before the American public now for over 2 years is about pre-existing conditions held against those without healthcare so that the discovery of an illness doesn't bankrupt you or leave you essentially with a death sentence.  Romney deceives you even on such an issue critical to the lives of so many. 
And by the way the individual mandate is designed to also help eliminate this problem, that is, the individual mandate that the Republicans supported when it was to their advantage to support it. 

Again Romney and the Republicans would have you believe their lie so that they can get into office and keep things the way they are without any change or help for people even in the face of the fact that although many aspects of the healthcare law are popular the most popular feature of the law is the elimination of pre-existing conditions on people without healthcare.

On Photo Voter I.D.
One could go on and on. The Republicans would have you believe they are making the election more secure by passing legislation requiring a photo ID to vote but the kind of fraud that a photo voter ID would eliminate is virtually non-existent. Their photo voter ID law would essentially make it difficult for primarily democratic low income inner city voters to vote since thousands of those voters use mass transit and do not get a drivers license. The Republicans would have you believe they are for useless government spending on a law that addresses a violation that is virtually non-existent. Should we laugh or should we cry?

On The Last Thirty Years:
You have been falling for this tripe for over 20 years now and what do you have? You have a Republican party that took down the unions essentially weakening the only powerful opposition to globalization and the shipping of jobs overseas and in the process you have for most of us an essentially stagnant wage level for that 20 years while the Republican's 1% have raked in record profits. Look at where the middle-class was when government regulation and unions were at their peak of influence from 1950 to 1980 and look where the middle-class is today after 30 years of an economy mostly dominated by Reagan's rightwing economic ideology.

Some of you out there still think the Republicans have the answers. Even if they did could you trust them?
