Well, I beg to differ with YOU. This is a democracy. We have the government we deserve, God help us. How do the politicians pull the wool over our eyes? Blame the media? Blame Congress? No. Blame the voters. Until we wake up and demand a saner government we will not get one. I voted Romney because, like you, Obama scares me to death. If Romney fails to curb federal spending (a likely outcome, I'm afraid), then I'll vote for anybody who runs against him next time.
