opinion: Voters need to know where candidates stand on issues important to them
With the Presidential election less than two weeks away, it is important that we know where the candidates stand on the issues so we can make an informed decision.
In the third Presidential debate, Gov. Mitt Romney surprised many by agreeing with President Barack Obama on his foreign policy and saying that all he wants is peace on earth. This is surprising because it repudiates everything Romney has been saying for the past two years when he was much more hawkish.
It is evident that Romney will say anything to get elected. We need to remember that 17 of Romney’s 24 foreign policy advisors are the same right wing neo-conservatives from the Bush/Cheney administration who led us into war with Iraq. Romney can change his tune as much as he wants, but the facts tell us whom we would be getting were Romney to be elected President. I encourage everyone who wants peace to vote for President Obama and Vice President Biden.
