Obama, Biden stronger on important issues

We urge all Americans to listen carefully to candidates and read between the lines when a campaign ad comes out.

Please distinguish what is a blatant lie and distortion and what is the truth. Don’t just believe what you see and hear in print, on cable, etc., but research thoroughly before you make up your mind who is best to run this country.

Do you want a man whose campaign was dying until he brought on board a woman who is not qualified to step in and be President should one presidential candidate die, and who does not tell the whole truth to revitalize his campaign, or do you want a man whose campaign has been run on the issues that are important to Americans — education, energy conservation/alternative fuels, gasoline prices, civitas, national debt reduction, balanced budget, less government, no privatizing of Social Security, and, most importantly, health care for all Americans at an affordable price?

Analyze, research, make an informed decision. Don’t listen to scare tactics, be your own person and vote.

My wife and I will be voting for Barack Obama and Joe Biden, won’t you?
