With 6 electoral college votes Nevada will be key in the results of the November 6th ballot picking the next President of these United States. Who has the advantage, Mitt or Barack? With over 119 thousand more democratic registered voters in the state Barack has the advantage on paper.
Will that advantage result in a win for his campaign? Not likely as Nevadans remember how this President devastated our cities and our state when he went on air not once but twice to inform the nation they shouldn’t go “to Vegas” in these tough economic times spending “college” funds.
Our economy suffered worst then any state in the Union with high unemployment, high foreclosure rates and a drop in tourism due to the words spewed from the Presidents mouth. Many of those who voted for him in 2008 have expressed sorrow as they realize the hype was better than the word.
With only 37% of the promises made on the campaign trail held to date, the road in Nevada will be a tough fight. We remember how he stated just a few short years ago he would reduce the national debt by 50% because it was “unpatriotic” to increase the debt by 4 trillion as George Bush had done. Well, with 6 trillion added to the debt since taking office Obama has failed on delivering that promise.
Candidate Obama also promised in his first year he would sign into law immigration reform because the cost was to exorbitant for any state to continue to fund. Well not only didn’t he pass any legislation but he never even offered any to the Congress which by the way was democratic for the first two years.
There are a host of other promises made and broken, too many to list here. So in these closing days as both candidates talk about how they would handle the office once elected the stories are vastly different. One candidate wants four more years to finish what he stated. While the other wants four years to fix the mess that has oven taken our nation.
Come November 6th, 2012 be sure to exercise your God-given right and vote for the candidate of your choice. We as a nation are guaranteed basic freedoms and rights under our Constitution that no other nation in the world has. Let’s not lose them.
