Who do you trust?

This election is not about who you like, as the media would try to tell you; it's about who you trust. Before you vote, ask yourself this, and be honest: If I had to turn over my life savings to Barack Obama or Mitt Romney to invest, who would I trust more?

One man invested in companies like Staples, Domino's Pizza and Sports Authority, which produce a profit and hire Americans. Obama's track record includes Solyndra, Solar Trust of America and Energy Conversion Devices, three of the more than a dozen companies Obama bankrolled using your tax dollar. They all went bankrupt.

Who would you trust with your life savings?

Wrong heading

Having been born in Florida nearly 90 years ago, I have been a registered Democrat for close to 70 years. As it was 70 years ago, everyone I knew was a registered Democrat.

Despite what Charlie, Bill, the four red letters and all the red shirts say, my grandchildren will not live under the same government that I've lived under and for which I gave four years of my life and four inches of my right arm to defend.

I like history and I remember what the red shirts from Red Square stood for. I think under our present leadership, my grandchildren and the grandchildren of people who came to this country seeking freedom are headed for what they were trying to escape.

Planned outrage

Who would have thought we would be attacked again on 9/11, especially with the radical Muslim apologist in the White House?

More information is now coming out about the fatal attack on U.S. diplomats in Libya and apparently it had been in the works since June. So the outrage over the video clip on YouTube satirizing Mohammed is just the attackers' version of plausible denial, especially since they used rocket launchers. This was not spontaneous; it was planned.

Am I the only one having a Jimmy Carter flashback? The events of Sept. 11 were a 1979 Iran rerun.

I hope you all wake up by Nov. 6.
