Say What?

America, today if you see me driving down the street, or in the grocery store and I just start laughing out loud to myself (literally!), know that I have not lost my marbles. It's just me thinking about the mistruth that 47% of Americans don't pay ANY taxes. On behalf of the millions of under-employed and low-wage earners; not to mention those working two and three jobs just to keep up, I'm sorry that such ugly words were spoken. I am sorry for all the down-on-their-luck veterans who had to hear such cruelty; you know who you are; many standing at stop lights asking for help. If Mitt Romney is not sad for his blatant insult to real-world Americans, then I will sorrow for those stinging words.

Any thinking person knows the cliche, the only thing one HAS to do in life is "die and pay taxes." Real-world people pay at the pump, pay at the grocery store, at payday in payroll taxes, and more. If Mitt Romney is trying to prove that one of America's best U.S. Presidents should remain in office for another four years, he hit a homerun last night.

That wasn't a gaffe. His words were a blatant slap in the face to working-class Americans who do pay taxes, many times nearly half their earnings! It is very rare for a person born with a diamond-laden platinum spoon in their mouth to feel genuine compassion for real-world people.

I couldn't put my finger on why I didn't have peace about voting for Romney. Now, I know. Christians will have to answer who's the best candidate at the polls. At least we know President Obama can remember when he wasn't a one-percenter. Wow, somehow as I end this writing, I'm no longer laughing. I'm really sad for those people who thought someone had their best interest at heart, prob'ly doesn't; and yet they'll vote a GOP ticket 'cause that's what they do'.

Pray America pray; and after statements like this, vote. Acknowledge that neither of these people are perfect; but, one stands out more than the other. Kudos, President Obama, kudos!

On her way in to work this morning, my daughter summed it up best: Out of the abundance of a man's heart, his mouth speaks.
