I've thought of a #11: 11) With Obama's hostility to fossil fuels, gas prices in a second Obama term will likely shoot up to European levels, and with Obama's war on coal, a fair percentage of our electric-generating capacity, from coal-fired plants, will be mothballed, and blackouts and brownouts will become an everyday feature of American life in a second Obama term. Oh, and here's a #12, based on accounts I've read several places recently over the Internet: 12) Obama will move forward with a scheme to try to force suburban residents back into the crime-infested urban hubs they were so eager to flee by decamping to the suburbs.

Keep in mind this: While I oppose the Section 8 program, many "conservatives" through the years have supported it. That includes the late Jack Kemp, HUD secretary during Bush I. He saw no problem with subsidizing violent, destructive blacks moving to the suburbs.

Forward is not a destination. If you'd asked Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot or their supporters if they were taking their nations forward, they'd have undoubtedly said "yes." Mussolini? Forward. Napoleon? Forward. Genghis Khan? Forward. Of course, Churchill, Thatcher, and Reagan would have said "forward" as well. So, that's why it's important to ask what difference it would make if we go forward for four years under Mitt Romney as opposed to going forward for another four years under Barack Obama.
