Olk: Blinded by the right

Nate Olk, Frisco

David Hudson used the word “perplexing” to describe how anyone could put faith into President Obama in the upcoming election. I find it perplexing how out of touch, asinine and misinformed Hudson is when it comes to these candidates.

Hudson stated that an honest assessment of Obama’s record would assure defeat. If that is true then Romney’s simple solution should be to put out advertisements that speak the truth – so what is Hudson worried about? He is worried because if Romney were to put out honest ads, it would only ensure his own loss. Romney and his Super PAC’s have spent more money on negative and dishonest advertising than any presidential candidate in history. Romney’s lies are getting through to Hudson; however, most of the American public is more intelligent than that, and it’s showing in the polls.

Claiming that Romney’s experience and accomplishments vastly exceed Obama’s is an absolute show of moronic ignorance. Romney is so embarrassed about his work experience that he refuses to release any information regarding Bain Capital or his tax records, while using offshore tax shelters to obtain a lower tax rate than construction workers and teachers. Hudson only measures accomplishment in how much money you make (since he views making millions as a greater accomplishment than becoming president). American teachers, police officers and nonprofit workers are successful individuals who live extremely accomplished lives – and they don’t need millions of dollars to prove it.

Romney referenced war veterans, middle-class families, seniors and the unemployed as people “who believe they are victims … Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it.” America is compassionate and those people deserve access to help from their country. Romney’s father depended on welfare to start a career in America. War veterans fought for our country, for our freedom, and are willing to pay the ultimate price for America – and I am proud to say that my tax dollars go toward supporting them.

One thing I agree with Hudson on – when you vote in November, use your own intelligence.
