Tomorrow our nation will hold one of the most important elections in its history. We are faced with two paths – one leading to government dependency based on bigger government, reduced personal liberty, and economic decline. The other leading to individual freedom based on reduced government, opportunity and economic prosperity. The past four years stand as stark evidence that President Obama’s big government version of America has failed the American people and repressed our entrepreneurial spirit. Governor Mitt Romney offers a plan to revive the American spirit and return us to a thriving economy. President Obama’s re-election platform is structured on a false narrative and a failed mythology. Over the past month, in a five-part series originally published on Human Events, I identified certain of these myths and offered the proof as to why they are false. If you are a voter still sitting on the fence or considering voting for President Obama’s path, please take a few moments and read these articles:
Democratic Myth 1: GOP is to blame for failure of Obama’s job policies
Obama had 2 years in which Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and the Presidency. He could have passed just about any bill he wanted to pass, and he did. None of these bills revived the economy and Democrats are now ignoring the job creation bills the Republican House has already passed.
Democratic Myth 2:Those who have done well should pay their fair share
Successful people already pay more than their fair share. Balancing the debt and deficit is not about the tax rates people pay. It’s about the tax revenue we generate. Creating jobs increases tax revenues; Raising rates in a recession does not.
Democratic Myth 3: They want to return to the same practices that got us into this mess
It was government policies that resulted in the real estate bubble, not policies Republicans are proposing to get us out of trouble.
Democratic Myth 4: Folks like me should go back to the rates we paid under Clinton
President Obama will raise taxes well above the rates paid during the Clinton years.
Democratic Myth 5: The economy is growing strong, the recovery is speeding up
