  2. I think Mitt Romney Should be elected president. My reason for this is that a year after he was president the budget cuts came through. We lost a principle a teachers. Another reason is that he is a morman and more christian. He will also try to get rid of high taxes!

  3. In my opion i think that Mitt Romney should be elected as president. I think that because Mitt Romney thinks that it is fair that the poor people get the lower taxes and i agree. If the poeple dont have money how do they pay? Another reason why i think Mitt Romney should be elected is because he is trying to lower the taxes. 10-4-12 5-9 SarahW

  4. I think that Mitt Romney should be elected for president. I think this because Obama has made America miserable for the past 4 years, maybe Romney can change that :) Also, Mitt Romney says that he will get rid of HIGH taxes. Maybe that will mean a few extra Christmas presents for us kids for Christmas :)

  6. I think that Obama should get re-elected as president. He is planning on bringing all of the soldiers home by 2014 wich if we had Mitt Romney, then he might have a different plans so they wouldnt come home. The United States should have peace with the other countries.

  7. i feel that obama should be president because he is succeeding with his promise as to bringing troops home and he is rebuilding the united states and making it better and he is also putting money into places and fixing the country one step at a time and he is going to give the jobs back that people lost so people can work again and live with money and not be in debt

  8. I think Mitt Rommeny should be elected president. I think this because he said he is going to lower taxes where Obama said he would lower taxes by $2500 but he increased it by that much. Also Mitt Romney he will have to let companies fail or succeed on your own. Which I think is fair its like a test. Obama cut part of our lunch we now can't have chicken nuggets every day. Also Mitt make it so every one has health insurance based on their level.

  11. I feel that Mitt Romney should be president because he could do more for our counry. Mitt thinks that we should lower taxes and leave buissnesses alone, when Obama thinks that we should raise the taxes and keep worrying and being like watch dogs to the buissness. I think that we should lower taxes and let the buissness run by themselves. If the buissnesses have to pay more, then the buissness will start to loose money! I beileve that they deserve the moeny that they earned, which is how Mitt feels.

  12. I would rather have Obama (For the "things" he said he will do), Obama, did raise taxes, even though he said he would lower then. I would rather have Mitt Romney for President because he will deal with the taxes better. I really agree with Obama because of the environment. He is going to try and stop Global Warning. I don't really care about gay marriage, it's their choice. It should be legal, only if they really want to go through with it. Also he wants to stop Immigration, I don't care, but Terrorists could disguise as normal humans, and try to take over the country. They should only let certain people in the country. I vote Obama 51%, and Mitt Romney 49% .

  13. My opinion is that we should not have a new president, we should stick with Obama. Obama is doing all he can do to keep us out of war. Yes, something he does is making it harder for the United Citizens to live and pay for things. The people of the U.S. is loosing some money but, if the ecomny was better, the goverment would be losing money and would not be able to pay back other countries like China. If the goverment doesn't have money to pay back these other countries, there could be a new world or even World War. If we have money and the goverment doesn't we could end up in war and maybe get attacked by the terrorist. Who knows what other bad things can happen? If the goverment gets more money and the people get less, we are at a bettter chance of being safe in our country and not being scared in the U.S. Also, Obama wants wealthy people to pay more money for taxes. I 100% agree with thid because if people who aren't as fortunate pay more, which is what Mitt Romney wants, the less fortunate would have less money to pay for thier houses, food, and electricty to surive. The main reason, I agree, Obama should be president is because he agrees that we don't need to be at war. He wants to send home our troops and end the war in 2014. This would take alot of the U.S. and we would be safer. Also, alot more families wouldn't be losing love ones that are risking thier lives for our country. I blieve our country would be safer in Obama's hands

  17. I feel that Obama should be president. He says that he will bring back the solders from Afghanistan. He also wants to modernize teaching for young kids. He also says that we should use more green sources of power. i think that with Obama the U.S. will truly succeed.

  18. Based on the things we learned in class i think that Obama should be relacted. One reason is because he wants to take the troops out of Afghanistan. Another reason is he was able to fix the economy just a little bit and it helped our country. My last reason is because he wants to raise taxes for the wealthy and help the middle class.

  20. I personally think that niether candidate should be elected as president. I think this because even though I kind of agree with some of the things that both Romney and Obama have to say, I also strongly disagree with some of the things they have to say. Obama wants to legalize gay/lesbian marriage, where as I stronly disagree. Also Romney wants to cut taxes for the rich, and I disagree.

  26. I think Mitt Romney should be elected. I think this because since so many people(American citizens) are suffering, the immigrants shouldn't be allowed here and if that happens real Americans will have a job.He will also lower taxes so not many citizens will wander the streets. Instead of spending a lot of money on solar panels he wants to dig up some oil and because of this , that will lower the gas's prices.

  27. Mitt Romney should be elected this year. This is because he doesn't want to charge rich men more. The rich men provide businesses and if we charged them more then loyal hardworking men and women would be out of jobs. Also Mitt wants to lower taxes and if that happens Men and Women would have more money to provide themselves and their family's. Lastly, Romney has a better education and is a great man.

  28. My opinion is that Mitt Romney should be elcted as president.I think this because i have taken the quiz and i 85% agree with everything he has said. also because he is extreamly educated,he went to Harverd University and has been the govenouer of Massashusetts so he has plenty expirence.Also he is an older man so he has seen other presidents mistakes so he can correct them and make a great nation!

  32. I think Obama should be relected as president. He helped the U.S.A so much more then i think any other president could. I know he made some things worse but he does more better. If Mitt Romney was chosen he would pass unfair laws. Obama would make things better.

  33. I think that Obama should be become president again because he feels that the rich people should pay more taxes he knows that the rich people have that kind of money. Another reason is the that he want the immigrants to stay in america but Mitt Rommey wants to kick them out of America. My last reason is that he killed the osama bin landen the person that killed lots of people.

  34. I vote for Mitt Romney to be elected for president, because he has plans for people, jobs, econemy, and enviromental causes. I believe that Obama did everything wrong and continued to ruin the economy. Mitt Romney has a plan and he will start this country as if it never had a "Great Depression." I have a feeling Romney will be come an amazing president! Mitt is doing what everyone wants and he will make everything so much better for evrone, and everything!

  36. I completely agree with Mitt on everything. Therfore i think he should be elected president. Mitt is planning on making more jobs, and lowering taxes. I think this is really smart because the wealthy and middle class work hard for their money so i dont think that they should increase taxes for the wealthy and middle class. But i do feel bad for those who cant afford food etc. but if Mitt was president they would be able to afford food and other things they need because they would have a job. Also i think that aborations should be illegal because i dont think anyone should be aborted everyone is special in their own way and no one deserves to be killed even if they have a disability or their parents dont want them they can always be put up for adoption and be happy and healthy in a loving home.

  38. I think Mitt Romney should be elected president because the amount of immigrants in the U.S. is threatining our beliefs and customs.Also, if he is elected he will take less money from buisnesses making more jobs.Finally, Mitt Romney should be elected president because he is a mormon,and being a mormon makes him more christian.

  39. The candidate that I think should win is Mitt Romney. If Obamas way didn't work why elect him again. He will probably just do the same thing that he has been doing for the past four years. That way will mostly end up with the same result as his prior presidency. I am not sure if I want the same thing happening again. Mitt Romney also has some good opinions on jobs. Olivia E.

  40. I believe Mitt Romney should be elected president because he will lower taxes,and people will be back at work. Even though Obama had experience with being the president he said that he will make everyone have a job, but he left millions of people jobless.

  41. I think the candidate that should win is Mitt Romney.One reason why I want Romney to win is because Obama let a lot of people down while being president.He was spending money that we don't have and putting us more into debt.Also,Obama is borrowing more money from other countries, making our money worth less. Mitt Romney promises to lower the national debt.Also, Romney wants everyone to work and not get handout from the government.

  42. After watching the Debate and discussing it in class, I believe that Mitt Romney should be the new president of the united states. First of all, I think that Romney should be president because Hopefully, we won't have to suffer in dept like we have to now with Obama. My second reason is that I respectfully believe that taxes shouldn't be raised on anyone! Whether they are the upper-class people or not! My final reason is that I'm voting for Romney because after taking the test for what political "party" we are in, I found out that I'm a moderate republican. Therefore, I believe that Mitt Romney should win the election.

  43. I think Romney should win for many reasons. First, Romney
    Wants to bring down the tax on the upper class because they give many people jobs. Next Romney wants more people to have jobs which a little part of the pay will go to the government which he can use to pay off your debt. Also Romney wants to stop spending money on things we do not really need. This is why I think Romney should win this year. Wesley B

  44. Barack Obama because he will help the poor very much with taxes so they can have a little bit of a better life, he wants to help the environment , and gives people rights to do what they would like to.

  45. I believe that Mitt Romney will be elected. The reason I say this is that I believe he could help the economy. For example, he wishes to lower our taxes. Even though our debt ceiling is already so large, we will be able to pay back the foreign countries needed our money. We will be able to pay them because if we lower our taxes, more people will build businesses and employees will be required. So, the US will earn extra money to give to the foreign countries that need the money we owe. Second, Mitt Romney wishes to stop everyone from spending money on things we can live without. This will also reduce the debt ceiling size thus "making the world go round." Finally, Mitt Romney will help us by--as I started to get to previously-- expanding the job opportunities. This will occur once the upper class has their taxes reduced so they make their bigger businesses needing more employees.

  50. Mitt Romney. Obama has done absolutely nothing for our nation. Since Obama Was Elected our country has gone up 13 Trillion is debt. Mitt Romney has earned money for his State without raising taxes. Obama has not kept any of his promises. I believe neither should be elected but i have to make a choice. I thin, they both would be TERRIBLE leaders to our nation but Romney is the better choice if i was forced.

  51. I think Obama should be re-elected. the economy was already in a free fall when Bush was in office and Romney would want to do something similar. Obama also whats to end the war in Afghanistan which would take away a lot the money we need to supply our military. And lastly Romney wants to put more taxes on the middle class and less on the rich witch would only cause most people to get poorer while the rich get richer.

    I think Obama should be picked because he has been president for 4 years and he hasn't got into any trouble. The country was running smoothly. He also is good because he's involved in organizations and sponsors charities so he has a good heart. That's why I think Obama should win this election! GO OBAMA!!!!

  55. I think that Mitt Romney should be elected because Obama didn't do many good things. In 2008 Barack Obama made lots of promises but only kept a few of the promises. Mitt Romney has given us more and better reasons to vote for him. Also Obama only kept the less important reasons instead of the bigger issues our nation is facing.

I feel Mitt Romney should be elected president over Obama.Obama promised many things like less unemployment.Obama only kept a few promises like killing osama,but he plans to keep those same promises this year too.Mitt Romney thinks that we should have lower taxes and more jobs will be opening.Obama only did the less inportant promises and kinda pushed the bigger ones to the side.If Mitt Romney gets elected the nation will be put on the right track and might even be majorly helped.

  62. I think Obama should be president because Romney is saying if a mom wants to have a abortion they cant cause he is going to make a law if he becomes president, while Obama does not mind if a mom wants to get a Abortion. Also Romney Does not agree with gay couples on getting married he thinks guys and girls should only get married that's how it normally is.And Obama is perfectly fine with gay couples and Lesbien couples as long as they are happy together!

  63. If I can tell Obama one thing it would be stop blaming everything on Bush, the American people gave you four years. To change the country for the better. More people are in the streets, more businesses declaring bankruptcy and more problems in the Middle East. Now Syria, Obama waited months to make his decision, help the Syrian people free them from the Syrian government. Our Economy is barely getting better. The people of America are outraged of how little you have done for America in a four year term.

  64. I think they should elect a new president. I think this because obama will just make everything worse like he is now. Also, i dont think that Mitt Romney should be a president either. This is because he wanted to take away things that people needed. Mitt said when he was elected to be the president that he was gonna take away f.e.m.a and that would be wrong cause many people needed f.e.m.a at the time because the storm. Also, obama has been changing many things such as, health care and his implantation that he did was a failure. Another reason that obama shouldn't be reelected is cause he keeps blaming bush for his mistakes so he can be covered up. So if we elected a new president we can start fresh and not have any mess ups going on that are going on today.
