Dr. Ron Paul understands the economy better than others

Dear editor,

I’m frustrated because there are so many ways to say this, but none of them seem adequate without resorting to expletives.

Whether many people know or will admit it, the USA rapidly going to hell in a handbasket in many ways, the most obvious of which (other than morally) is financially. That will impact not only our lives, but also the lives of future generations, and cause this country to soon become a third world power unless our government drastically changes many of its present policies.

It would be a terrible thing if we left such a prospect and burden on future generations, but that seems to be government’s plan now, and no candidate to be our next president has put forth a plan to deal with this situation, save one.

Some candidates have governed at local and state levels or succeeded in business, but only one has a record to prove that he has studied, and has an extensive knowledge of, economics as it relates to government.

That’s why I urge all Americans to ignore what political parties and mainstream media tell them, and instead, if they care about the future of the USA, to vote for that one candidate who can lead us to a future of liberty, freedom, and prosperity&8212; Congressman Dr. Ron Paul.

Mitt Romney is the only true conservative seeking office

Dear editor,

We need to elect a true conservative as President, which is why I am supporting Gov. Mitt Romney. Romney is someone who can change Washington, and rein in out-of-control spending. As governor of Massachusetts, Romney took a $3 billion budget deficit and turned it into a surplus, without raising taxes. Romney will control spending, capping budgets and keeping taxes low. Now more than ever we need someone who will clean up the mess our federal budget is in. Mitt Romney has the business credentials and experience for positive change that we so desperately need.

Mitt Romney also has a unique plan for health care. He offers coverage for all, without raising taxes. At some point, we need personal responsibility to enter into the fray, and Romney invites us all to partake in the healthcare system, but doesn&8217;t raise our taxes to do so. Romney, as president, will allow every state to implement their own health care system. This will allow local control and personal responsibility. Everyone deserves a chance at health care, but personal responsibility has to be a big part. Let&8217;s entrust our health care overhaul to someone whos actually been successful, rather than relying on more empty promises.

We need a true leader in the White House who can restore our integrity around the globe as an honorable people. Mitt Romney is the most

qualified candidate and possess presidential qualities that are most important during these troubled times.

I have lived in Dallas County all of my life, and many of you know me, and know that I would not mislead you. Gov. Mitt Romney is the man for the job!
