You did miss a big portion of Romney's plan, unleash our natural resources. This will create jobs, lower gas prices and electricity prices. The reduction in these prices will help both the working man AND the corporations' bottom lines. It will make commodities cheaper to produce and will allow prices to fall. The jobs created will be across the spectrum of unskilled jobs all the way through jobs that will require an education. When he talks about creating 12 million jobs in 4 years, that is what he means. Once more people are working, incomes will rise because employers will have to compete for limited human resources. This is how supply and demand works. It is not just for goods, it is also for labor.

Exactly. So simple. Wish everyone could understand that, or at least accept it even if they don't agree with using natural resources.

A version of this column appeared originally in THE DAILY BEAST.

Both presidential candidates describe this election as the most important choice in a generation and insist that the outcome will fatefully shape the direction of government and society.

But voters can’t make a meaningful decision when the discussion during the last month of the campaign (and, undoubtedly, much of the televised debate on Wednesday night) will be based on shameless, embarrassing lies.

Those lies flow most egregiously (but not exclusively) from the President of the United States.

Every day Barack Obama frames the electoral decision as a stark choice...
