Vote with your head and heart

I hope all voters young and old will stop and think before going to the polls next month.

The Republican George W. Bush Administration in 2003 invaded two sovereign nations — Iraq and Afghanistan — to “win their hearts and minds.” The trillion of dollars in war costs were hidden off budget — didn’t show up in President Bush’s budget. Now some are balming President Obama for this increase in the national debt. They killed nearly 5,000 of our fine service men and women and injured many more. They will need and deserve our help. Many more thousands of innocent people in faraway countries were killed and families destroyed. 

I think President Obama has done as well as anyone could have done to clean up their mess. Please stop and remember to vote with your head as well as your heart.
