7. To Romney, America's current deficit spending binge is immoral! Instead of passing this debt to future generations or raising taxes now, Romney/Ryan will demand progress on the deficit-reduction front and a gradual return to fiscal sanity. Paul Ryan, the penny-pinching chairman of the House Budget Committee, could not provide more of a contrast to Obama's irresponsible and out-of-control spending habits.

8. Romney/Ryan will incentivize investors and entrepreneurs to get America working again. President Obama's efforts to promote economic growth have not produced the results promised. Instead of raising taxes, Romney/Ryan will cut taxes and spending while increasing federal revenue when more companies are making a profit, more people are working, and wages are growing. It's time for free enterprise to do what Washington can never do--create jobs, jobs, jobs!

9. Not only is the cost of gasoline too high and stifling economic growth; it leaves America open to economic warfare by our enemies. Romney/Ryan will unleash our energy companies to take advantage of our own rich energy resources. Romney's plan will be an "all of the above" energy plan that allows us to stop sending oil money to our enemies while creating good jobs and more profits for our own energy companies.

10. Romney are likely to have the opportunity to replace Supreme Court justices who face immanent retirement. They'll ensure that those who are appointed will protect the Constitution. Ensuring the liberty our Founding Fathers fought to establish is too important to let activist courts take away our rights one ruling at a time.

Ronald Reagan warned: "Perhaps you and I have lived with the miracle too long to be properly appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."

Support Romney/Ryan's promise to once again unleash a true economic recovery and an America we can be proud of. The choice is clear--More dependence or freedom, more entitlements or opportunity, and more debt or dreams fulfilled. Let your vote count.
