There are only 2 real choices in Nov election, IMHO. The Marxist or the rino from MA. The other actual choice, Gary Johnson couldn’t get enough Republican votes to get into the primary debates. A vote for Gary is a vote to feel good, it will have no more effect on our country’s problems then staying home on election day. I think most thinking people know what our real financial problem is. It has to do with paying people not to work, and re-distribution of earned wealth to undeserving dead beats, foreign and domestic. This didn’t happen last year, it started decades ago, with the LBJ war on poverty. After spending Trillions we now have more poverty, but a lot less treasure.

I would argue staying home, voting for johnson, voting for romney, or voting for obama will all have equal effect on our countries problems. But hey, I could be wrong

It’s not going to be fixed in 1 term, it will take decades to make it right, but at least Mitt might be the 1st step toward that end. We already know Barry isn’t.

POTUS can only suggest, unless he goes rouge like Barry and ignore the Constitution. Congress must be the guiding force back to solvency, and only the voters can accomplish that.

A drastic reduction in gov now will bring the same thing here that is going on in Greece. We need to just get back to our Constituion, a step at a time. Like I said, just my opinion.

Even stossel's foolish tail will most likely pull the lever for Romney. He just likes to sound high and mighty.

And a good one. People plan their lives around the status quo. Even if changes are for the better, they will first do more harm to more people than good, because they will disrupt people's plans for their lives. Example, if you do something to drive up the price of homes again, so that all those homeowners who are upside down on their mortgages get healthy, you've just ruined the plans of the guy who sold his the month before, and is now looking to buy.

Nothing is so good it's good for everyone.

President Obama tanked in the last debate. Good.

Now maybe people will listen when Mitt Romney says things like, "The genius of America is the free enterprise system, and freedom, and the fact that people can go out there and start a business. ... The private market and individual responsibility always work best."

They do.

But then Romney responded to Obama by essentially saying: I want big government, too!

We who hope for smaller government as a way to expand liberty and create prosperity are disturbed by what we heard last week. The GOP candidate painted himself as a big...
