一言居士
– A person who has something to say about everything

An American says, “I voted in the morning and I knew who the next president would be that night.” A Chinese snorts and says, “I knew who the next CCP Chairman would be five years ago.” A North Korean laughs and says, “I’ve known who the next leader would be since I was a child.” A Japanese sadly says, “I vote regularly, but I still wonder who the current prime minister is.”

    Friend,

    Election Day is tomorrow.
    This election is a turning point for America. It is a time for greatness, for big change, and for action — not more idle words.
    I’m not just talking about change, I actually have a plan to make it happen.
    From day one of my presidency, I will restore common sense to Washington by cutting wasteful spending and putting us on a path toward a balanced budget.
    I will lead us out of this economic crisis by implementing pro-growth policies that will create 12 million new jobs.
    With your help, I will deliver real change and a real recovery. America will be strong again.
    Contribute now to help me, and the entire Republican team, win the most important presidential election of our lifetime.
    Thank you,

    Mitt Romney
