Before voting for president next week, I hope intelligent people will ask themselves a few questions, such as:
Who will continue the sound, steady progress being made by the economy after saving it from the brink of a complete collapse?
Who will continue to effectively use skilled diplomacy and the pressure of America's strength and influence to work with allies and the international community when dealing with world affairs?
Who will continue to responsibly lead our country based on a respect for God, the rights and human dignity of all people and the protection of the health of our planet?
Weren't eight years of failed leadership, reckless war, environmental destruction and economic disaster under the last Republican administration enough for one lifetime?
It should be common sense that our country can only continue to move forward by voting to reelect President Barack Obama.
