If you believe the following, you should vote for Mitt Romney:

•You like a candidate changing his positions from one debate "performance" to the next stump speech (or when one of his handlers "corrects" his latest position) just to garner votes.


•You still cling to the fantasy that a return to Bush-era tax cuts and policies, via the Romney/Rep. Paul Ryan agenda, will lead to more jobs and economic growth despite the disastrous economy George W. Bush left us in 2008.

•You want government calling the shots when it comes to dictating women's reproductive health options. (Mr. Romney's website doesn't even have a link for women's issues.)

•You agree your daughters' pay should be less than your sons' for equal work.

•You like health insurance with every man on his own and insurance companies benefiting.

•You approve Supreme Court justices overturning Roe v. Wade, defending corporations as citizens and unlimited gun rights.

•You believe it's American to shelter your money in tax havens abroad to avoid paying your fair share of taxes toward this country's growth.

•You believe global warming is a hoax, evolution is "debatable" and the arts are expendable.

But if you disagree with any of the above, believe we are all in this together, that no man is an island, that we are all equal under the Constitution and should have the same chances for the same successes no matter our race, gender, sexual orientation, or religious beliefs, you should vote for President Barack Obama and a Democratic ticket.
