I won't defend Obama, but our spending problem started long before he took office, and I see absolutely no reason to believe that Mitt Romney would radically change course. ¡Obomney 2012! baahh

I'm not sure why you can't see a reason to believe Romney would change course.
Other than you don't want to.

I simply don't trust politicians. They don't exactly have a proven track record and 40 years of life in this world has made me a bit cynical when it comes to politics.

If Romney proves with his actions to be different, then I'll give him the kudos he will have deserved, but I won't hold my breath while I wait.

Spot-on!. NAFTA. Socialized education. Socialized healthcare. Socialized housing. Socialized food/ag. Socialized energy production. Socialized employment/unemployment. Nation-building. TARP, Bailouts, Stimulus. Perpetual amnesty - illegal immigration. DESTROYING the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 9th, 10th, 13th, 14th Amendments. REJECTING the Enumerated Powers. The PRIVATE "Federal" Reserve, DHS, TSA, NDAA, CISPA. The NOT PROPERLY RATIFIED 16th Amendment (income tax), etc. etc, etc...

DECADES of leftist democrat party and leftist republican party "rule."

Ron Paul 2012! Constitutional law, liberty, sound money, nonintervention, strong defense, peace and THE ONLY WAY to unseat Obama.

You still carrying on about Ron Paul? He's driftwood floating on a sea of has-beens and never-was'

Produce a viable, sane libertarian candidate and I'm all ears.

You have a valid point. As awful as Obama is, it's not like Romney is going to return us to a limited, Constitutional federal government. Oh he may slow down the pace of government intrusion, but he is still a RINO. And there are still plenty of spineless, gutless RINOs in the House and Senate.

Big government wasn't built in a day, and it won't be scrap heaped anytime soon.

They are being weeded out. There are a whole lot of heads on swivels these days. People are paying attention again. The marxists believed America was soundly asleep and they could march in and do what they are doing. All they've done is re-awaken Yamamotos' sleeping giant.

"he may slow down the pace of government intrusion"
NO. He will not. His history and record PROVES THIS. He will not.

"won't be scrap heaped anytime soon"
On course it will. After collapse like the Soviet Union.

As I said earlier in the week, if The One really wants to get into it on issue of deficits and debt, bring it on.  Here's his latest bit of breathtaking historical revisionism, via Greg:
 


 

“I don’t know how they've been bamboozling folks into thinking that they are the responsible, fiscally-disciplined party. They run up these wild debts and then when we take over we have...
