You're absolutely right, that Romney is a big government guy. So is Ryan. In fact, we're getting a big-government two-fer with them. I have no illusions that Romney and Ryan are going to do anything much different. As a conservative, I swore I wouldn't vote for Romney and was going to write-in (here in California, Obama will win the state easily and its 55 electoral college votes) because my vote won't matter in this deep midnight blue state. However, after the debate, I realized there was more at stake than my conviction: we can't have an incompetent in the White House as the world is on the verge of exploding.
