A redistribuição da riqueza produzida sem equidade é a origem de todos os problemas económicos e o grande erro do mercado livre.

+Kenneth Hamner Romney would do a number of things to unshackle the private sector and promote job growth. For example, he'd get rid of Obamacare requirements that depress job creation by making it much more expensive to create jobs. He would simplify the tax system by removing loopholes, allowing him to lower rates and increase the reward for working. He lays all this out in position papers on his site.
 
“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” Mitch McConnell
Whoever is elected, hopefully they will get a house and senate that will work with them.
 
Look! Another gloom-and-doom post! Yay!
 
I can't wait to see how the left spins this. This is a horrible jobs report and its not going to get any better. They finally admitted this month the unemployment rate dropped because of the people that stopped looking for work.
 
I can't believe I'm going to de-circle my candidate because I'm starting to despise his social media staff.
 
Nate, I completely agree with you. In fact, I wrote this exact thing to them. On their website they have a suggestions e-mail. I wrote him a whole social media plan, but didn't hear back. He needs to focus on what he is going to do positively instead of all the negative talk. Way too much of his message is focussed on what Obama is doing wrong instead of what he will do right. I'd also like hear more about what he has been doing the past four years. Show us what you have accomplished. Having said all that, Mitt is still my top choice for right now. He gets the financial issue and has the experience to get it done. I like how on his site his slogan is spend less than you make.
 
+Nate Wilken Sadly, this kind of sound bite stuff is actually expected on Facebook and Twitter. Not sure Romney has enough staff to assign a separate person to Google+.
 
I agree that some post are negative, but this post is about the facts. If you turned on CNN or MSNBC how do you think they would be touting this information.
 
just because these news stations probe him to talk about this stuff, doesn't mean his answer has to be negative. he can just as easily respond with productive messages that move the situation forward.

How can he afford not to have someone on every social media platform. He should have someone answering every single post, reply. searching his name constantly to reply. that's how to win today. how can no one be interacting with us here. I've had no interactions on google plus, twitter, not even a response from e-mailing his website. one to one marketing is the only way to break through today.
 
Romney is the Republican sacrifical lamb for the 2012 election. As bad as Obama is, Romney is simply not going to win... We really needed a rock star to run in this election. What were our choices again?
 
+Darrell Hoover We elected a "rock star" last time. This time we need a leader. Romney has been a leader most of his career.
 
The fact remains it's hard to get excited about Romney... He seems like an establishment guy to me... I just think we needed someone to beat Obama in a landslide victory for freedom. I don't see the excitement or even the interest on the conservative side.
 
Yes! Passionate! Anyone "passionate" about Mitt? Really?
 
Four more years of Obama is not what I had in mind when we were in the midst of the primarys. Now it seems that is exactly what's going to happen...
 
I'm trying... I'd rather have Hilary then Obama. I would vote for Romney just to get Obama out, but that's not a good enough reason to vote for him in my opinion...
 
For the country's sake I hope Romney wins... I really do....

"_only 43% of liberals rate Obama a liberal_"

Are you kidding me?!
 
Oh,my goodness. So an economy adding jobs should be considered a bad news ?
 
And anyone with a pulse thinks he is a lousy president.
 
+Lance Griggs Many liberals dislike Obama's nation building escalation in Afghanistan, support for indefinite detention without trial, and support for assassination of U.S. citizens overseas, which they consider to be non-liberal policies. Of course, a lot of conservatives don't see those policies as conservative, either.
 
+Lance Griggs So 100k people who didn't have a job but now have a job should be greeted with grim and negativity ? I'm short of words.
 
So Romney cant articulate his solution in simple clear terms ? Who has the time to go through all those pages of words that lack meaning to a lay man.
 
Not even close. 1st of all Romney won't call Obama for anything, period.
 
+Solomon Utuedor Mitt Romney put it this way, a week ago, in the speech "A Better America Begins Tonight."


"I have a very different vision for America, and of our future. It is an America driven by freedom, where free people, pursuing happiness in their own unique ways, create free enterprises that employ more and more Americans. Because there are so many enterprises that are succeeding, the competition for hard-working, educated and skilled employees is intense, and so wages and salaries rise."

There is a more succinct version of the PDF from earlier, here:
http://www.mittromney.com/sites/default/files/shared/BelieveInAmerica-PlanForJobsAndEconomicGrowth-Summary.pdf

The simpler plan lists the proposals, such as:

"Reduce the corporate income tax rate to 25 percent

Strengthen and make permanent the R&D tax credit

Repeal the corporate Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT)"

I only linked to the longer book because +Adrian Bachnivsky asked for specific answers - but there are definitely places to find his proposals in "simple, clear terms." I linked to two. Seek and ye shall find! /wink.
 
+Thomas Terence C'mon, Thomas : )

"Only apparent campaign pledge"?

“On my first day in office I will send five bills to Congress and issue five executive orders that will get government out of the way and restore America to the path of robust economic growth that we need to create jobs,” Romney said (Sep 6, 2011).

Five bills? Five orders? Allow him to elaborate!


* Five Bills for Day One

The American Competitiveness Act: Reduces the corporate income tax rate to 25 percent

The Open Markets Act: Implements the Colombia, Panama, and South Korea Free Trade Agreements

The Domestic Energy Act: Directs the Department of the Interior to undertake a comprehensive survey of American energy reserves in partnership with exploration companies and initiates leasing in all areas currently approved for exploration

The Retraining Reform Act: Consolidates the sprawl of federal retraining programs and returns funding and responsibility for these programs to the states

The Down Payment on Fiscal Sanity Act: Immediately cuts non-security discretionary spending by 5 percent, reducing the annual federal budget by $20 billion

* Five Executive Orders for Day One

An Order to Pave the Way to End Obamacare: Directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services and all relevant federal officials to return the maximum possible authority to the states to innovate and design health care solutions that work best for them

An Order to Cut Red Tape: Directs all agencies to immediately initiate the elimination of Obama-era regulations that unduly burden the economy or job creation, and then caps annual increases in regulatory costs at zero dollars

An Order to Boost Domestic Energy Production: Directs the Department of the Interior to implement a process for rapid issuance of drilling permits to developers with established safety records seeking to use pre-approved techniques in pre-approved areas

An Order to Sanction China for Unfair Trade Practices: Directs the Department of the Treasury to list China as a currency manipulator in its biannual report and directs the Department of Commerce to assess countervailing duties on Chinese imports if China does not quickly move to float its currency

An Order to Empower American Businesses and Workers: Reverses the executive orders issued by President Obama that tilt the playing field in favor of organized labor, including the one encouraging the use of union labor on major government construction projects.
All that is from one speech and the ten things are specific, actionable campaign promises, and they aren't the only promises JUST for the FIRST DAY IN OFFICE!

Take a listen to the guy before generalizing : )
 
Since it took 10 years for the Great Depression to fully recover, I don't think it's bad that we're in year 4 of the recession. Keep it in perspective, people.
 
+Thomas Terence I read the joke in the context of your larger post! Maybe think of the response I gave as being relevant to "why we should support [Romney] instead of the campaign [he has] been running," instead of thinking of it as responding to your one campaign promise joke. On Romney's first day in office--should he be elected--he will submit a bill to Congress to repeal the mandate which requires serious responses to online joke-telling, and so on.

Seriously.
 
I take my comedic cues from Liam Neeson I guess : |
 
+Lance Griggs Really? When you talk about people not in the labor force, is there any context for that? Specifically, people getting older and retiring? This is misinformation. I pray for contextualized information for sound decision making, not propaganda for prejudice.
 
É-me indiferente se Romney é melhor ou pior que Obama, o importante é garantir que as soluções apresentadas garantem a resolução dos problemas. As pessoas estão cansadas de perceber que existe uma tendência para beneficiar "certos interesses" prejudicando outros. Basta de mudanças para a situação se manter igual. É indispensável que o bem estar das pessoas substitua o lucro, no modelo económico, com uma equitativa distribuição da riqueza produzida pelos USA.
Translate
 
Caro Aaron, o erro é mesmo esse. As pessoas não vivem sem "economia" mas a economia pode viver e prosperar sem "algumas" muitas pessoas. O correto e difícil é conseguir essa fórmula fantástica em que os interesses de poucos possam conseguir reduzir o númeo dessas "algumas" pessoas a um número sustentável pelo estado social.

How would you be different from Bush and Cheney, your Republican predecessors? Absolutely no one wants to experience again what they did to the nation through lying about the reasons for war, wholesale corruption and their other costly debacles. Until you explain in great detail with highly specific examples of how you would avoid the incompetence and mistakes of the disastrous Bush administration I don't see why voters should give your their trust.
UPDATE: Still no response so we'll have to assume under Romney it would be more Bush-style destructiveness and the GOP has not learned a thing or changed in any meaningful way.
 
The problem is the president poor performance!
 
I think he was trying to blame the President for unfavorable job creation conditions (some jobs can be made aside from public policy, since America is still a place that has opportunity. . . and innovation!)
 
Rick Perry created 2 million jobs, while Obama have lost 8 million. At he same time! How does democrats explain that?
 
+Thomas Terence give Romney 4 years like you did to Obama, and if you did not like you don't vote him anymore.
 
Hope, that's why. Someone is going to deliver
 
+Thomas Terence politicians is like having a relationship you sometimes get disappointed but you have to move on. Give Romney an opportunity and feel free to move on if he does not deliver what he promised.
 
+Thomas Terence The executive branch can't even make all the decisions that would be needed for some changes to be made: unless Congress passes the bills first, the President has pretty limited authority. However, the President can submit bills, is the Commander in Chief, and makes foreign policy decisions for the United States. I prefer the principles that Romney advocates for over our President's right now >.>
 
+Thomas Terence +George Coelho Trust matters but for what it's worth I think Mitt can deliver. It's easy to be skeptical or cynical given the politics of backbiting and negative ads. . . it's sad but it's not the whole apple--Romney is running for what he believes, but he believes in marketing too.
 
If the ideologies of conservatives and right wingers is truly helpful and sound, why must they depend so heavily on propaganda and disinformation such as talk radio, Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, corporate sponsored think tanks, etc.?
 
^you are a communist. Go to cuba please!
 
Why is it so many right wingers can't have a civil, respectful political discussion? Without fail they end up by saying everyone they don't agree with hates the country and then they suggest you should leave. Is it because you have no debating skills, were not brought up properly or that your ideology is bankrupt?
 
He is absolutely right, the American people have suffered long enough.we need a future for America, and Mitt Romney the next President we can achieve America's Future!!!
 
Bush and Cheney did not protect the nation when they had plenty of CIA intelligence warning them that "bin Laden intended to strike within the United States" and then, even worse, they twisted intelligence to mislead the public about the reasons to invade Iraq. These are incompetent, evil people. How do we know Romney won't be as deceitful or as stupid?
 
I have been in sales for fifteen years, with my education and experience I'm in Executive Sales. That being said I have the qualifications to read people as With I did with Former Governor Mitt Romney. I studied his campaign for almost two months, before I made a reasonable decision to support Former Governor Mitt Romney!!! it does not end I continue to elvaluate his campaign on a daily basis watching "Good Morning America" ABC 4 News in my hometown and I'm very critical with his campaign, as well as
Barrack Obama's Campaign 2012...
 
hell i'm sure from your comment, you can't find your arse with help.
 
I do not understand what you are saying from the misspelled words

I agree with Romney that if we don't elect him, our whole country is worthless.
 
Still not a single word about how a Romney administration would be different from the disastrous Bush administration? The only sensible conclusion is that is would be more of the same...
 
Are you joking? Bush has been mentioned less times than Dick Cheney during this election cycle. He was a disaster and never should have been installed in the White House by the Supreme Court and two hacked elections. 
 
You don't seem to get it: the GOP is ALWAYS going to drive the nation into tremendous debt, primarily in the form of idiotic defense programs (Reagan's Star Wars) and unnecessary wars. They are too beholden to big business and the Pentagon to serve the interests of the taxpayer, voter and middle class. Even worse, they are insane ideologues that want government in every aspect of our lives (i.e.: women's reproductive rights, illegal wiretapping, inserting theology into government, etc.)
 
That's a very impressive collection of false talking points, right wing disinformation and flat out urban legends. Do you check in with realty from time to time? The GOP wants to control every uterus in the nation. How do the women in your life feel about that?
 
Brilliant comeback my friend. There are two kinds of Republicans, millionaires and suckers. 
 
If you watched Clinton's speech last night calling out Romney and Ryan on all their lies and STILL plan to vote for them, you should take a deep look inward and ask yourself some tough questions. And with that, we're done.
