We can argue about the differences between the Democrats and the (new) Republicans; there are many and the outcome of this election has never been more critical.

Consider a few points:

  • Do you actually want to go back to the “trickle down economics” of the Bush years?
  • Do you find it odd that President George W. Bush is not on the campaign trail for Mitt Romney? There are two reasons: One is that Romney can’t associate himself with the failed Bush/Cheney years and another is that Bush sees how the Republican Party has moved too far to the right.
  • As a woman, does it matter? If Romney wins, you will have no support for equal pay and will lose control over your own body.

Don’t be fooled by Romney’s attempt to appear moderate; he’s a good salesman and will say anything to get elected. The Tea Party has found its puppet.
