I think we can all agree that the most important issue in November's election is the economy. And I would imagine that most of us would agree that, whatever the shortcomings of the Republicans, the Obama administration -- ably supported in its first two years by a Democrat-majority House and Senate, and aided in its second two years by a Democrat-majority Senate which has, in four years, failed to propose a budget -- has failed miserably on the economic front. For this reason alone, I would suggest that any voter who isn't happy with the fact that the price of gasoline and heating oil has more than doubled since Obama was elected should vote for Romney, Scott Brown and Jon Golnik and for Republican candidates across the board.

The Democrats promised us change. They delivered on that promise. How do you like it? Are you better off today than you were four years ago? Ready to do something about it? Vote Republican!
