You may vote as a Democrat, but in your heart, you may believe as a Republican.

A Republican believes in lower taxes for everyone. They also believe in a smaller government. Last, they believe the government should not spend more than it takes in. We have to live that way, the government should too. So if you believe in those three things, you may actually be a Republican in your heart.

President Obama is a prime example of a liberal Democrat. He believes in higher taxes, bigger government and huge government debt. The debt has increased nearly $5 trillion since he took office. More than any other president.

We also know that President Obama is a smooth talking Chicago politicians who does not have the leadership for the office of president. He likes to blame Congress, or someone, or something else for not getting anything done. Leadership starts at the top. He has failed to do that.

We know that about half of the world hates us. Now through President Obama's Middle East policy of apology and accommodation, they not only hate us, but we are looked upon as weak and we no longer have their respect as a strong nation.

This is yet another example of weak leadership by our president.

Have you noted that Obama has based his whole campaign on character assassination of Gov. Mitt Romney and also tries to demonize Mr. Romney for being successful? President Obama cannot run on his record in office because, if he did, he would be defeated.

So as you go to vote this year, instead of voting for your usual party, vote for what you believe in your heart, and what is best for our country.
