By MITT ROMNEY
After more than a year of campaigning, endless political advertisements, two conventions and four debates, the presidential election is almost over. The big decision of 2012 will soon be in the hands of the voters. The choice Americans make will shape great things, historic things, and those will determine the most important and intimate aspects of every American life and every American family.

It matters to the senior who needs medical care but, thanks to ObamaCare, can't find a doctor who is taking new Medicare patients. It matters to the men and women who once had good-paying jobs with benefits but now work part-time with no benefits just to put food on the table.

It matters to the single mother who lives in fear of foreclosure as her employment prospects dwindle.

I believe we stand at a cross-roads. We have to trust one of these guys, and hope like hell they get it right more often than not.
I sure as hell know that doesn’t come anything close to what Obama will do.
All I can do is hope Romney will do better than I fear he will.
In all honestly, he could harm this nation seriously too. We’ll see soon enough, if my take on the situation is right.
