I don't know about you, but I have a very personal stake in this election...

You see I have a preexisting condition that is going to ultimately end with a lung transplant.

Now if Governor Romney were to win, he would let the preexisting out for insurance companies to expire, evaporate, go the way of the dinosaur, which ever way you want to say GONE would be all right. That's right, this situation would turn back the touchy feely way of living that hard nosed conservatives don't believe is the American way. These captains of capitalism are double downers on the laws of the jungle.

Now they also want to get rid of my other out, medicare.

So for me, at least, it is personal.

Now I'm no Johnny come lately to the Democratic Party, I've been there since I played HHH in the sixth grade election. Out of all the people I have voted for over the years, there must be thousand, there was only two times I voted for the GOP candidate. Once for a family friend and once because the democrat who was running was a sniveling weasel of a man who made the worst republican look like Gandhi.

So I am Blue through and through.

I am asking people that I know who might be thinking about voting republican think about what would happen to people like me, people who life has dealt a bad hand, people who through no fault of their own, can't fight back. Not all of us can be masters of the universe and let only the fittest survive, most of us just want to get along with a little help now and then from our government.

I ask you this, what's so wrong about that....

2. I am with you, WCGreen

this election is the MOST personal I think I have ever voted in.

(And I never played HHH, he was my senator for many years and I attended his funeral).

3. i hope some people listen. and then i hope they THINK.

you are so very far from the only one.
it's personal for me too, but it goes like this: i have children, and grandchildren, who will one day have children who will have children. i'm a humanist and a liberal and every person matters to me.
as i read somewhere and now repeat every chance i get, you don't have to love Obama to vote for him. You just have to love your family.

6. Just got back from the doc this afternoon and it hit me as I was driving

through Downtown Cleveland and then out to the suburbs. You can literally see how much harder it is to live in the city where the poor folks live than it is to live out in the outer ring suburbs that I live in...

Who speaks for the people who have no voice?

In my lifetime, the only politicians that looked out for people in need was the Democrats.

Time and time again I see the GOP speaking to those who have it all and want to keep it.

Rambling, I know, just woke up from a nap, but the whole idea of conservative, to me at least, is to conserve what I have and don't look back...

7. I wish someone like you could have asked a question of Rmoney at that town hall

But you know, then you wouldn't be "undecided".
