When I voted a few days ago, I took into consideration many things. I took into consideration that the President I want prioritizes education, especially when both my brother and I are pursuing our education and my parents are educators. I want a President who is going to make it easier for young Americans, and even older Americans, to go to school and get an education - who doesn't limit the educated population to those who can afford schooling. I want a President who cares about the energy future of this country - who is conscientious of our economic need to shift to domestic gas and oil - but is aware that we need to make energy transitions into the future and focus on renewables. I want a President who is level-headed and is well-regarded by other countries - who will not jeopardize our reputation around the world. I want a President who aims every day to identify and connect with those of us in this country who are struggling - and doesn't spend more time trying to save those who are well off and instead concerns himself with helping those who actually need the help and help to keep our economy strong (the lower and middle classes with large buying power). I want a President who is consistent - who doesn't switch his views with the situation and is honest. I want a President who is willing to admit when he has made a mistake - and yet always keeps his eyes on the goal. I want a President who in the real world could sit down and identify with someone like me - an average college student - trying to make their way through life and will be leaving college with only a 50% chance of getting a job - and will try to change that. I voted for President Obama. Governor Romney has given me no reason to give my vote to him. He is not a bad person, nor does he mean harm upon anybody. But it is impossible to identify with a man such as him - a man who does not even pay the same tax rate as most of us, a man who is too rich to care about the poor (and will even stand by statements that the poor do not need help), a man who waives off 47% of the country behind closed doors, a man who will be completely incapable of implementing any respectable foreign and domestic policy, a man who wants / likes coal (the most awful fossil fuel that anybody can use - and all of the science proves that of all the fossil fuels we should be focusing on natural gas, and doesn't seem to care about renewables), a man who will not prioritize education and instead is fixated upon fulfilling the goals of his party which he doesn't even align with (repealing Obamacare amongst other things), etc. President Obama is the only man who can continue this recovery without jeopardizing the American people - at home and around the world. President Obama's heart is with the United States, his money is in the United States - whereas Governor Romney gladly keeps his money elsewhere so he doesn't get taxed the same. I trust President Obama with the next four years of this country. Most of the Americans who will vote for Governor Romney will undoubtedly benefit from President Obama's policies - and simply will wrap their arms around those in their party and vote for Romney because that's what they're supposed to do. The future that President Obama presents for this country looks bright - and Governor Romney will not move us forward. It's time to move forward.
