Tribune Democrat Endorses: Romney can right listing ship

We urge our readers to cast their vote for Mitt Romney to be the next president of the United States. - The Tribune Democrat

...America stands at critical crossroads for her future on Tuesday.

Mitt Romney is a former governor, a proven leader, with a successful record both in governing and in business. He understands the importance of free enterprise. He comprehends with perfect clarity that small businesses and entrepreneurs – not the government – are the drivers of a strong economy.

Romney believes a robust economy is the key to alleviating poverty and helping people become more self-reliant.

During this campaign, Romney laid out detailed plans for economic recovery, job growth and reducing the public debt, concepts painfully absent from Obama’s campaign.

Romney promises to unleash America’s energy resources like never before, ushering in a new era of energy independence. And our region will benefit greatly from that goal. Romney will halt Obama’s premeditated efforts to crush one of our area’s most precious job creators – the coal industry.

Romney will cut the deficit by reducing spending to 20 percent of the GDP without touching entitlements or defense. He promises to open markets overseas to American-made goods and to hold China accountable for cheating that has cost Americans jobs.

He will reassure our allies abroad, including Israel, with a clear, consistent foreign policy message of peace through strength and commitment.

Romney is committed to repealing Obamacare, replacing it with reforms that will not bankrupt America, strangle individual rights, handcuff or interfere with medical professionals and their patients.

America yearns for a president who will unite us – not divide us.

One with vision, who will inspire, uplift and motivate.

America wants a president who will promote our national values abroad and not apologize for them – a leader who will hold up this great nation as the beacon of freedom that she remains.

Gov. Romney is that leader, and we urge our readers to cast their vote for a stronger America, by electing Mitt Romney as the next president of the United States.
