This is not mine, but is an excellent comment that was on the internet

Romney and Company smirk ...and smile ...and say to us:

TO HELL with all those “moochers” and “free-loaders”

receiving Medicare, or Veterans Benefits, or Pell Grants,

or Social Security, or Unemployment, or Medicaid, or Food Stamps, or on Disability,

Romney says TO HELL with all of us that are struggling to stay afloat,

to those in the Middle-class, and to those hoping to get there.

Romney says TO HELL with the hungry, the homeless, the helpless,

and the hopeless, ....to all the biblical “least of these”.

Romney says TO HELL with the “47% of America” -- the “losers”

that Romney so easily dismisses and disrespects as “dependents”.

Romney wines... INCREDIBLY ...that we’re shamelessly sponging off of him,

and off of all of his poor-poor-poor super-rich friends

.....all those super-rich folks who want to BUY this ELECTION,

.....all those super-rich folks who want to BUY this COUNTRY.

Trickle-down economics? Hey, sure , let them eat cake. It’s all the same. Always has been.

It’s crumbs for us, and Cadillacs and car elevators, and loopholes & lower taxes for them.

That is, if they, and the bailed-out banks, and the big corporations pay ANY taxes at all....

If THEY get a break- they deserve it. But If YOU get a break, it’s a handout. BULL!

Tell me - who are the REAL “takers”, who are the REAL creators,

who are the TRUE workers and builders?

Who are the REAL “victims” here?

Who gave their LIVES and limbs ...in unpaid and un-needed wars?

Whose sweat, .....on whose brows, has BUILT this great country?

Was it the Romney’s of this world ...or us?

But we still have a voice. It’s called our VOTE.

Loud and Clear -- Just say NO.

Say NO to Romney & Company ...and what they stand for.

This is STILL our country. Our children’s country.

And we mean to KEEP it that way. Period.

3. "This is STILL our country. Our children’s country."

Here we go again:

"We do not inherit the land from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."

- old Native American proverb

4. Well it's interesting ...

but the pivot seems to be that 16 trillion in debt with a trajectory of massive defecit increases means that those that need the help the most will be the first ones that get screwed, those that are on any type of government assitance will get screwed over when the inevitable austerity kicks in, to hear my teahead coworkers tell it, if there are not serious reforms to medicare, social security and the tax code starting right now then the fiscal cliff reality will destroy the USA.

8. LOL

Yeah that's the correct political play I'm sure. They won't even make the sequestration cuts, or didn't you notice the war drums beating, how dare you advocate cutting defense at a time when the middle east is on fire....

9. I've read this several times

 

It is extremely powerful. The emotion and anger just connect with a person. From the few comments, I know I was not the only one touched by it. This should be submitted to every small town paper in the country. It says it all in a way everybody can understand and identify with..
