My choice for the next U.S. president would be Mitt Romney. I believe he could help turn our country around for the better. For example, he could help middle class families by lowering taxes across the board. Romney is a successful business man who doesn't say crazy things. He actually has a strong personality that seems sincere. Romney also claims that he will grant a waiver to any state that wants to repeal the Obamacare laws. He has a strong viewpoint on changing health care because he believes that citizens should have the right to control their personal health care instead of leaving it up to the government. The Oct. 3 debate demonstrated that Romney has more valuable and stronger viewpoints than Obama does. Romney has better policies regarding health care, taxes and jobs. He spoke the truth about the issues in the United States. In my opinion, he won the debate with fierce and confident viewpoints.

When it comes to any presidential election, the most common phrase heard is, "pick your poison." The poison I choose is Gov. Mitt Romney. In the 2008 campaign, many promises were made by President Barack Obama, which were broken and unfulfilled. The president has added $6 trillion to the national deficit, which should alone be a sufficient reason to try a new approach.
Prior to the presidential debate, I thought both candidates to be ill-suited for the task ahead. Both generalized their plans for the country or didn't give a plan at all. Post-debate, I still think both choices are severely flawed. I would base my vote on the choice who will affect my life. Health care for everyone is great concept, but it is more effective when run by the state rather than the federal government. Everyone can agree that extreme government spending needs to stop. Is America better off than it was four years ago? Generally, the answer seems to be no.
