Will We Be Moving “Forward” on the Road to Recovery as a Nation or Not?

The question before American voters on November 6th, 2012, is whether or not we should continue on the road to recovery or return to the failed policies of the past? Many argue that the soul and direction of America for the next 50 years are at stake in the 2012 Presidential Race.

One month from today, Americans will go to the polls to determine the future course of this nation for the next 50 years. The next president will more likely than not select three US Supreme Court Justices. Further, the outcome of the 2012 Presidential Race will determine whether or not we will continue to move forward on the road to recovery or will we return to the failed policies of the past.

The road to America’s recovery proposed by the two presidential candidates, the current US President, Barack Obama, and his opponent, Mitt Romney, have never been starker. The Obama/Biden ticket seeks continued forward movement  on a course of action which benefits the nation as a whole where the Romney/Ryan ticket wants to return our nation to failed policies which only benefit the 1% and serve to cause great harm to 99% of the electorate. Lest we forget, “Trickle Down” economics failed miserably under Reagan and Bush as best demonstrated by the economic collapse. The definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior and hoping for a different outcome. With that said, say no to trickle-down economics once and for all.

According to the National Journal, after the Presidential Debate, polls were taken about who people planned to vote for in the 2012 Presidential Election. Here is the  information from the nationwide as well as in individual state polls concerning the 2012 Presidential Race. Mitt Romney’s poll number went up nationally and in two key states after the recent Presidential Debate.

***Poll   Update***


Obama   47

Romney   47


Obama   47

Romney   46


Obama   48

Romney   46

Will the afore-referenced poll numbers for the President change for the positive when the notable decrease in unemployment numbers gets more coverage in the press? Some argue that the poll numbers will increase exponentially in the President’s favor if going forward in the debates President Obama speaks to his notable domestic and foreign policy accomplishments and Romney’s countless missteps including but not limited to tape released concerning Romney’s view on 47% of the voting public.  For some, the Romney tape speaks volumes about his views not so secret views concerning much of America’s citizens as opposed to his assertions about what would occur under a Romney Administration.

Will we, as a nation, be returning to trickle-down economics or continuing on the road to recovery? The answer is up to each on November 6, 2012 when go into the voting booth. With that said, vote and take a group of friends with you.
