Choice for U.S. president is clear


— May I weigh in here? For whom to vote? For what it is worth?

I plan to vote for the candidate who believes in providing the less fortunate with hand-ups and job assistance rather than life long handouts.

I plan to vote for the candidate who’s spiritual leader preaches God Bless America, not God Da** America.

I plan to vote for the candidate who has not bowed down to or who has apologized to Saudi royalty or the Muslim ayatollahs.

I will vote for the candidate who realizes that there are 50 states in our union, not 57.

I will vote for the candidate who has a record of charitable deeds and who has no connections to labor unions or Chicago politics.

I will vote for the candidate who wants to render us energy independent by using our own resources such as coal, oil and natural gas.

I will not vote for a candidate who has a history of associating himself with radicals such as the founders of the Weather Underground — a group that once planted a bomb in the Pentagon.

I will not vote for a candidate who professes that he wants to “fundamentally change these United States” by redistributing our earnings.

I will not vote for a candidate who uses the worn and tired methodology of pitting the wealthy against the poor as a divide and conquer ploy.

Nor will I vote for a candidate who has knowingly spent our United States into more debt than all of the presidents before him.

I will not vote for a candidate who has helped shut down many of our coal mines, who has denied oil drilling in our country, or who has literally thrown away billions of our tax dollars on failed “green energy” projects.

To me, the choice is clear.
