I was raised an independent, found myself voting Republican 99 percent of the time, so I thought of myself as Republican. Eventually I realized that I actually am a Constitutional Conservative.
I support and vote for the candidate I believe best represents my moral values, and my view of what is best for the country, state or locality.
Usually I just voted. Over the last few years, however, I have become saddened and frightened by the country's direction - away from God, the Bible, the Constitution fiscal,sanity and strong foreign policy (even the Shenandoah County Board of Supervisors has decided to stop praying before meetings). That is why I work more to support the candidates I believe will take the country back to these essential entities. The out of control spending must stop. Millions of Americans need jobs.
I have worked to elect Mitt Romney more than any candidate before because I believe that he will turn the country in the right direction - away from the road to disaster that the country has been taking over the last few years, particularly the last four.
Mitt Romney is a decent, honest, good man who knows what it takes to get America's economy back in order, and to promote a business environment that will produce good paying jobs. He will work to make America a better place to live for men, women, Latinos, African Americans, etc., including those of the "47 percent." His record and positions have been so distorted by President Obama, his fellow Democrats, the media and others, that many are unsure about whether he is the best choice for their vote or not. The debates have shown that he is not the evil, incompetent person that he has been painted to be. He is the right man to get us out of the mess that Obama has not been able to get us out of.
I am very pleased that the Northern Virginia Daily has endorsed Mitt Romney because "the choice is crystal clear." I urge ever voter to do the same. Vote Romney, Allen, and Goodlatte .
