November’s Decision: Socialism or Americanism

After listening to Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan at the Republican National Convention and reviewing the past three and half years of the Barack Obama and Joe Biden administration, the November election boils down to this: socialism or Americanism.

American was built upon the back of thousands of men and women who worked hard and long to build their own businesses.  They all started small and the vast majority remained small.  The backbone of the American economy is made up of the millions of small businesses across the nation that also supply jobs to millions of people.

Under the Obama administration, small businesses have been closing their doors at a record pace.  Not only are the owners losing their livelihood, but so are millions of workers, other businesses and individuals that rely upon them.  Like a human backbone, it cannot continue to support the body if it keeps weakening and losing pieces.  When enough pieces of the backbone are removed, the body can no longer support itself and it collapses on the floor.

Socialism relies on the collapse of small businesses.  The government assumes the role of provider in all areas and aspects of life.  This is the path that the Obama administration is actively pursuing.  This is socialism, not Americanism.

The Romney/Ryan ticket promises to help small businesses and entrepreneurship to help rebuild the economy, create jobs and strengthen America’s backbone.   They’re not going to do it by borrowing hundreds of billions of dollars to use on another stimulus package, but by sound and reasonable business practices that have worked for years.  This is Americanism, not socialism.

The hallmark of the Obama/Biden administration is Obamacare.  Obamacare is nothing more than socialized healthcare.  The government assumes the role of health provider and they will make the decisions on what medical care you do and don’t get.  The cost of Obamacare is far greater than you know.  Not only is it going to cost every American family, rich, middle class and poverty level, thousands of dollars in hidden taxes over the next decade starting this coming January, but it will also cost lives.  Americans will die for lack of proper care.  Others will die because the care dictated to them by the government will not be the right care as in the case of Jacob Stieler.  Obamacare is socialism, not Americanism.

The Romney/Ryan ticket promises to repeal Obamacare and return ownership of your health to you.  They do plan to try to work on a new health plan, but one that will not tax American’s into poverty.  In the process, they will restore the money that Obama took from Medicare and strengthen the program to help make it last.  This is Americanism, not socialism.

Under the Obama/Biden administration, they have reduced the middle class and increased the number of families living at or below the poverty level.  A socialistic society does not have a middle class.  It has the upper governmental elite and then everyone else.  This is socialism, not Americanism.

The Romney/Ryan ticket promises to boost the economy, increase jobs and thus help bring more Americans out of poverty and back into the middle class.  The middle class helped make America strong and will help to strengthen it once again.  This is Americanism, not socialism.

Under the Obama/Biden administration, government entitlements and dependency has increased at an alarming rate.  The administration has made it harder for religious and other non-profit organizations to operate and provide charity.  Instead, the government has been assuming the role of charity and provider.  This is socialism, not Americanism.

The Romney/Ryan ticket has promised to help get many Americans back on their feet so that they can provide for themselves and their families and get rid of the government handout lists.  They will continue to provide care for those that really need it, while at the same time forcing many to take responsibility for their own wellbeing.  This is Americanism, not socialism.

The real choice come November is whether you want a socialistic government and country or the free America of our past?  If you want America to become like the old Soviet Union and Cuba, then cast your vote for Obama/Biden as this is socialism.  If you want to save America and restore it to its former greatness and free enterprise system, then vote for Romney/Ryan for this is Americanism.

      The idiots who watch this crap also voted for it and cannot wipe there own rear ends without being told to do so by the idiot obama.

  • Screeminmeeme

    I totally agree.......but........the ONLY WAY that Romney will be able to implement his agenda is IF  the Republicans have  BOTH the House and the Senate. 

    So...PAY ATTENTION to whose running for these Houses and vote to elect the Conservatives.

     

  • unclejohnson

    All we have to do is vote. If 90% of the voting population actually voted most of these traitors (to their oath) would have never been elected.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/WI2DW723O3CZFVYKFTT7NSNL4U Jeff M

      That's right.  Obama got about 69.5 million votes, which was about 53% of the votes, but only 56.8% of eligible voters actually voted.  78% of Americans did NOT vote for Obama.

      • PepperdotNet

        Just like 70% of Republicans did not vote for Mittens.

    • PepperdotNet

      Not true at all. Most of the population are so busy eating, drinking and watching American Idol and have no clue what the issues are, apart from what the TV tells them. The more of them that stay home the better.

      • unclejohnson

        That's exactly why we have had over a century of big government growth and intrusion. Are you serious? Do you honestly believe that they should stay home? I pitty your kids. Their futures will be decided by unengaged people.

      Statistics suggest that somewhere between 15-18% of hunams suffer from some form of psychiatric disorder. Have you been evaluated or diagnosed? Why are you so quick to advocate hysteria and spin your wheels? You are as big a threat to rational solution to our nations problems as those who have assumed moral superiority to the public. Couch hopping is not a career. A vocation perhaps, but not a career or a future.

  • James360

    You are 100% on target. The real question is; will we continue to move toward foolishness or wisdom, gratification or true happiness, being slaves or free men and free women.
    Will we remove Gods direction and power or move closer to man's finite direction and mans finite power.

  • ConstitutionalRepublican

    Hah!  More like the two choices we have from the Big Government Party ( of which there are two wings: Republican and Democrat):   Socialism or Socialism!   

    Romney and Obama are the same!    Both beholden to globalists and the banking cabal!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWDJEc92d38

    • Rick

      Go ahead then and either stay home or vote for obozo. Let's see how that works out for you.

      • ConstitutionalRepublican

        I'm not voting for either of them.  I'm voting for Gary Johnson (although he is no Ron Paul) but at least his 800 vetoes as governor is something you can hang your hat on!  

        Having Romney is just as bad as having Obama.    Not to mention that Romney had to cheat (or he didn't even have to, but yet did anyway) at the RNC.   

        "Unity" is what all tyrants want...

        • Edward53

           Unity? Is that why Ron Paul can never win?

      • ConstitutionalRepublican

        I'd rather not see what voting for socialist Romney will work out for me, thanks.

      • Guest

        Yeah vote for one Fascist or the other Fascist great choice...hey let me know how that works out for you and your family.Call them what they are Fascists...not socialist and sure as hell not a capitalist.
        It's called Fascism get it correct.
        After what the RNC pulled I'd rather be an independent than support their corrupt Fascist establishment and their washed up wanna be conservative candidates.
        Christ a five minute fact check shows Ryan is as much of a liar as Romney...no thanks no GOP for me this year...the GOP and the Dems are one in the same corrupt pieces of excrement.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/WI2DW723O3CZFVYKFTT7NSNL4U Jeff M

      Romney and Obama are approximately the same on health insurance, except that Romney leans more to private insurance solutions.  But a lot of folks don't like the idea of mandating that we buy insurance.

      There's a simple solution to that problem:  repeal the law that Congress passed that requires hospitals to treat people without insurance or the means to pay without any reimbursement from the government.  Health care is a service provided by individual people who deserve to be paid for their work.  Nobody has a "right" to their services for free.

      After the first handful of folks die on the steps of the hospital, maybe the freeloaders who want a free ride will get the message and either buy insurance or save up a ton of money to take care of their personal inevitable responsibilites.

      • NM Leon

        Though it is certainly a bad law, repealing EMTALA wouldn't do much to fix the problem. I consult with a number of hospitals here in the Southwest, and other than illegals (which are a problem), the uninsured are for the most part the best patients payment wise. They are usually young, healthy, and working, and choose to self insure. They usually pay promptly in cash or credit card, or arrange a payment plan with the hospital. They are such good "customers" that most doctors and hospitals will give them a substantial discount.

        The emergency room money losers are those Medicare, Medicaid, and illegal patients who use the emergency room as primary care. It's very difficult to get CMS/HCFA to pay for a procedure that's classified as a doctors visit or outpatient procedure when it's an emergency room that's submitting the bill.

        The problem isn't who has or doesn't have insurance, it's the way insurance policies are structured. At present insurance pools are limited by law to the employees of a company, or if individually purchased, to other like purchasers within the same state.

        Take away the tax advantages given to employers, let insurance companies form pools nationwide, and don't mandate what a policy has too cover, and watch what happens. You would be able to buy a catastrophic policy for $15 a week, or the comprehensive policy of your choice for a little more. Insurance pools of millions of people would lower the costs unbelievably.

    • unclejohnson

      Yes your evaluation is accurate. Four more years of the wrong policies will only bring us closer to then end. Bush was a incompetent socialist. Obama is an amateur with an advanced degree. Yet what would you suggest? Giving up? Vote. Stay engaged. Dont go home and let the cable t.v. wash over you. Continue pushing those that you elected. Don't let them off the hook.

  • rcjr

    Restoring the socialist program, Medicare is different from socialism how again? Taking from one and giving to another is Americanism if they really need it, but socialism if they don't really need it? Americanism is socialism. Liberty, on the other hand, is something neither party understands

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/WI2DW723O3CZFVYKFTT7NSNL4U Jeff M

      Americanism is a hybrid between Capitalism and Socialism, allowing the Capitalists to retain just enough of the fruits of their efforts to keep them motivated to take risks, invest, and create jobs, while redistributing just enough to the less-productive to keep their pitchforks in the garage.  It's a very delicate balance.

    Petition to hold VA Officials (Brandon Raub's Kidnappers) Criminally Liable
    in Daily Paul Liberty ForumDP OriginalVirginia

    The Honorable Kenneth T. Cuccinelli, II

    Attorney General

    Commonwealth of Virginia

    900 East Main Street

    Richmond, Virginia 23219
    Dear Mr. Attorney General:
    We the undersigned do hereby demand that you charge and arrest for
    kidnapping and criminal assault all public officials, local state and
    federal, involved in the unlawful arrest, detention and commitment of
    Brandon J. Raub between August 16 and August 23, 2012. Neither the
    Commonwealth of Virginia nor the United States Government put forth any
    allegation or legal basis for arresting or detaining Mr. Raub yet they
    unlawfully held him in custody and forcibly committed him for
    involuntary mental evaluation. The Commonwealth of Virginia and some of
    its legal sub-jurisdictions actively participated in a well-coordinated
    criminal conspiracy with federal officials to kidnap, detain and spirit
    Mr. Raub into a psychiatric ward against his will, all criminal acts
    and in direct violation of Mr. Raub’s constitutional rights. These
    horrific actions are reminiscent of the old Soviet Union and so
    contemptible that Mr. Jefferson must be turning in his grave.
    As the chief law-enforcement officer of the Commonwealth of Virginia,
    you are compelled to investigate and bring to justice all individuals
    involved in these criminal acts. Moreover, because it is unambiguously
    clear that these actions were taken as the direct result of an organized
    criminal conspiracy among Virginia and federal officials, you also are
    obliged to bring racketeering charges against all the people involved in
    the incidents under the “Virginia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt
    Organization (RICO) Act.”

    I appreciate the tenor of the article but I am concerned with the misuse of words and ideas. Socialism and the hammer and sickle do not go together. Marxism is a far more egregiousness philosophical/ideological/theological attack on  our Constitution way of life. We need to determine Obama's true ideology.

      What happened to actions speak louder than words? If you do not know the answer you have had your head in the sand!

     Americans are increasingly punished for exercising free speech rights.  A
    number of videos of police violence against the occupy movement are
    available on YouTube. They show the goon thug gestapo cops beating
    women, pepper spraying protestors sitting with their heads bowed,
    truncheons flashing as American heads are broken and protestors beat
    senseless are dragged off in handcuffs for peacefully exercising a
    constitutionally protected right.

      Oh yeah! Taking dumps on cars. Masturbation and fornication in public. Breaking windows. Destruction of public and private property. Threatening violence and giving violence, just some of the ways the occupy movement expresses free speech rights. I should read a communist publication to find out about that and ignore the actual pictures I have seen and the truths I have experienced. Nothing more and nothing less than I expect from the extreme left socialism movement!

  • kellys

    If you look at their records rather than listening to what they  say the Romney/Ryan ticket is socialist as well. They were and are for bailouts/TARP, Romney is a known pro choicer, Romney has said that there needs to be more gun control, they are both "free traders" and will not bring the manufacturing jobs back to America. The list goes on, please do your research and avoid the sound bite. If a liberal like Eastwood is backing Romney/Ryan that should tell you something.

    • Edward53

       Just how in the hell is Clint Eastwood a liberal? Where do you get all of your precious information...The Daily Paul, HuffPo or Mother Jones?

    REALLY small point, but can we get photos with the words spelled correctly?  "Americansim", really?  If a liberal posts a spelling error I can't laugh at it when we have ones like "Americansim", "Amercia", etc.  Proofreading only takes a second and pays off in hours of laughter when the libs screw up something.  Thanks, carry on.

    Obama and Romney are not the same. Romney, as with any candidate is not perfect, but he is the best we have. Only a person with a low intellect could even entertain the idea they are the same. This is the most second most important decision of our history. Will we remain a Republic, or become a socialist utopia of darkness. It's up to you to decide.

    Unfortunately, many people still believ that Romney-Ryan will destroy medicare. They simply do not know that Obama has already started that. This is mostly because the MSM is in the tank for our Communist leader. Republicans need to do everything possible to get that message across. Other than Fox news and talk radio, no other media outlet will be of any .

    And, remember, when you vote it's for freedom versus dependency.  Where do you stand?  Can you believe our nation has progressed to this point? 

  • TheGizmo51

    After an uninsured person receives health care treatment others must pay for it.  That's socialism, our current system.  When people buy health insurance from private health insurance companies, that's capitalism under The Affordable Care Act.  So which will you vote for?  Socialism or Capitalism?

    • Citizen60

      Having an unelected board determine whether you get care is communism...although the system is flawed, Obama's death care program will make sure we continue to pay for others while they determine who gets to live. I know the left loves death, especially of infants but seriously, you can not deny the big picture...the culling of the herds, tried by Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Obama.

      • TheGizmo51

         Can't overly disagree with you but it does seem to be an improvement.  Now the insurance company with a vested financial interest has a say in an insured's health care treatment and the amount they will pay.  If a nonpolitical committee of health professionals without a vested financial interest can help decide the best treatment it seems to me a patient will receive better and more effective treatment with a faster recovery time.

    • Don39

      You people will stoop to any depth to prove your stupidity and ignorance!

      • TheGizmo51

         "No brag, just fact."  Said by Walter Brennan in the TV show The Guns of Will Sonnett also applies to President Obama's Affordable Care Act, like it or not.  With all due respect, please open your eyes and smell the flowers.

    The Republican Convention was but an illusion for a coronation.Ron Paul Delegates were disenfranchised, rules were changed by voice vote initiated by the central governing authority -the RNC - that usurped the results from the States where Paul had won the majority of delegates. The results of this theft of votes was actually reported on the teleprompter before the vote was taken!See video that proves this: http://www.dailypaul.com/252218/the-teleprompter-had-the-results-of-the-vote-before-the-vote-was-taken Once again, corporatism, international banking interests, and Wall Street control the options for November. It doesn’t matter if you vote for Romney or Obama - they own them both. It’s a better bet than the Cincinnati Reds in the 1919 World Series that regardless of who wins, very little will change.FREE Trade policies of both Republican and Democrat politicians mean America’s wealth will continue to be drained through foreign trade deficits as it has every year since 1976. Good manufacturing jobs that once flourished in America will continue to move overseas.It is also an indisputable fact that even if Ryan’s budget were adopted, America will continue to have budget deficits with increased public debt for the next 30 years. His budget plan states as such. And, does anyone believe our central government will stay on any budget plan for 30 years? They can’t plan economically what will happen 5 years from now, much less 30 years from now!If Obama is reelected massive budget deficits and expanded public debt will surely continue as long as other countries will lend us the money. Socialism require financing.With the absolute certainty of budget deficits, increased public debt, and trade deficits it then becomes an economic certainty we will see the continued erosion of the buying power of the dollar.This guarantees the standard of living will continue to fall for every American.Militarism complete with war after war will continue because empire building and using the sons and daughters of America as the policeman to the world is a commonly held view supported by both Romney and Obama.Individual Liberty and Freedom will continue to be eroded here in America because both candidates support a strong central government repleat with Liberty destroying legislation and Federal agencies like the Patriot Act, the TSA, Homeland Security, and massive surveillance of the population with everything from facial recognition cameras to legislating provisions for 30,000 "eyes in the sky" drones in America.This is the course you, the voter, have consented to for America.http://www.dailypaul.com/252218/the-teleprompter-had-the-results-of-the-vote-before-the-vote-was-taken Once again, corporatism, international banking interests, and Wall Street control the options for November.

    • charles17121

      Please give it a rest !  Ron Paul was never going to be the RNC candidate . If may memory serves, Ron Paul never won an election in any state . As for Romney being like the fraud obama he is far from it . Obama is a fraud and usurper who is using a stolen social security number , forged birth certificate and forged selective service card to prove he is a legal sitting US President . The problem is our government is not following US Constitutional law .  We should not be even talking about a presidential election until congress honors their oath to the US Constitution and remove this fraud obama from office under Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of the US Constitution . WAKE UP AMERICA 

      • Dave the Liberal

          Can't prove It ? Are you nuts ?

If you didn't have you head stuck so far up the fraud obama's back side you might be able to see the truth . So do yourself a favor and put down the obama Kool Aid and take a drink of reality . You boy the fraud obama is going down and there is nothing you Obots and the Illegal obama administration can do about it .

        And thank GOD. What the He?? does RNC mean? What does GOP mean? What does America mean? What brand of freedom does Romney or Obama represent?

Just like Obama, Just like Obama, Just like Obama, the only, and I mean only, difference is one is a photonegative and one is a photopositive, but the picture is the same frame.
        Your freaking out, WAKE UP AMERICA, comment suggest more about your sheep mentality than understanding of the realities.
        A vote for Romney is not a vote of liberty, a vote for Obama is the exact same thing as a vote for Romney, with one exception, the way you feel. And feelings my friendly concearned citizen, do not liberate, change, produce, or create movement other than more and more feelings.

    Our country is at a true crossroads ! We are either going to recover or cave into an Obama Socialistic State. Obama is not your average American. Many may argue that he really is not an American. However , his lies and deceptions are all aimed at Fundamentally Destroying the country that our Fathers founded. The Dreams from his Father were actually the Dreams from his Mother. A known socialist communist who brain washed her child into the thoughts that later formalized his adulthood ! Say one thing and do another is the motto of BHO.

    • Dave the Liberal

      Now Andy ya can't beleive everything you hear on Fox (Fixed) News. You actually think Mittbot Robmey would be better. If so than you must be a 1%er. Because they are the only ones he will help. I must give credit where credit is do. From the sounds of his speech last night he will improve the job market for young men. It sounds like he will start a war with Iran. Alot of young men can join the Army, I'm sure they will be hiring then.

      • Ballistic45

         Well Dave the Liberal, hows that 'hope and change' working out for you?  Obama has not only failed this country, he has not even kept promises made to his Lemmings..  Gitmo is still open, His administration is far from being open and transparent, what happened to that CSpan televised Obamacare debate instead we got 'pass it to find out what's in it'..  And what about all this lip service Obama gives about job creation and helping the middle class and poor... Hmm, seems what he does fails to match what he is saying and promising..  His job growth has been mainly in Government JOBS,  His private sector job creation has been a total failure costing tax payers over $500K per job, not to good an investment, he spent Billions of taxpayer money to; Solyndra, Ener 1, Beacon Power, Abound Solar, Amonix Solar, Spectra Watt, Eastern Energy, (Green Jobs) all failed, they ALL WENT BANKRUPT....  They all contributed to Obama.....    

        At least Mitt via Bain Capital used private funds t0 save companies that are still thriving today...  Everything Obama actually does kills jobs and increases cost of living for those he promises to protect, the middle class and the poor..  Taxing the RICH, BUSINESSES and the added cost of complying with the new EPA regulations will ALL be passed down to consumers, the middle class and poor being hurt the most..   The blame can now be placed squarely on Obama's shoulders...  It's not Bush's fault any longer, the plain truth is Obama is a salesman, not a leader, he pits one group against another for political gain rather than being a leader to bring all Americans together in solving problems..  We haven't had a Federal Budget in over 3 years...  Cost of living has doubled, Cost of fuel has doubled, we went from a AAA economy to a AA economy, we went from a 7.8% Unemployment to 8.3% Unemployment, we went from a 10 TRILLION dollar debt to 15+ TRILLION dollar debt...  Can Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan do better?  Hell Yeah..   They would have to really work hard to do as BAD as Obama has.. Truth hurts but it's time to face facts.....

    NEWS FLASH
    Americans and Russians and Europeans and Asians and Africans and any other form of human being all pay the same people in the end, the international banks.
    Nations get money from banks, they can print paper and buy bonds with that paper but that bond is worth nothing more than that paper and that paper value is determined by the debt that nation owes to the international banks.
    The real weapon of mass distruction is the mass distraction that takes place in every nation since 1913. The interventionists got together with the reactionaries and sought to manipulte the globe for ever and ever. But they left a few strings that needed to be hemmed up a few years and two world wars later, so we got the IMF, UN, and World Bank. As long as this planet allows the existence of The Federal Reserve, the 16th Ammendment, the United Nations, International Monitary Fund, and World Bank, it will be animal planet and every one of you sheep will remain in the zoo, I should know, I clean the cages you are all in.

    Fraakley , I have not read one posting on this  blog of a person complaining that they were jobless.Obamas stimilus must have worked for some of you. Many fokls on this posting are retired from their jobs or the  military and were not affected by the jobs that went to China and oher coutries.  Since many of you are getting  some kind of check from Obama every month must not like Saocialism, yet your getting a check from Obama every month.  Romney-Ryan will want to stop all Goverment checks and dependecy including your Gov. check. Well that should make any red  meat Republican happy.  But on the other hand how will live without that Government hand out that you don't like or was it that you liked it before you did not like it.

      First of all, son, Social Security is NOT a hand-out! Seniors worked hard for 40 or 50 years all the while sending money to Dee Cee with the promise that when they retired they would begin to get their money back. I see you have to be spoken to like a child who just can't grasp the concept of payout in contrast to payback. So no, Barry does not send us our "hand-out" every month. Next, dear child, although some of us didn't get massacred in the whole "stimulus debacle" we all have children or grandchildren who are jobless because of Barry's incompetence --or maybe it was his outright malice--that sent our kids' and neighbors' jobs to China. And lastly, the government hand-out is going to the nearly half of our "citizens" who are depending on the other half....OUR half....of the people who do honest work for a living and pay and pay and pay and pay taxes so the sluggards can sit in their living rooms watching a huge flat-screen TV, talk on their (free) smartphones, and go shopping at Nieman Marcus while we laborers go shopping at Walmart. (Not slamming Walmart! Where would we be without it!) No, it's not confusing......it's disgraceful what Barry and the Chicago Five have done to our once great Nation. Get some facts before you spout off, youngster. 

      • Edward53

      Would you prefer that all of those businesses that Bain Capital SAVED from going under, had just gone under?  I can't for the life of me understand people like you who don't know didly about business economics.  Yes, Bain's main purpose in acquiring those many failing businesses was to make money.  This IS America, for goodness sake, where capitalism is king.  You call it "Vulture capitalism."  You're wrong.  Vultures dine on DEAD carcasses, where companies like Bain are like business surgeons.  They cut out the dead tissue so that the rest of the body may thrive.  So Mitt Romney and the rest of Bain Capital made money....GOOD!  Since Bain made money, so did all of the pension funds that bought shares of Bain Capital.  If it hadn't been for Bain Capital, companies like Staples, Burger King, Sealy Mattresses, Domino's Pizza, Weather Channel....and many more may not have still been in business today.

    The same forces that put Obama in place have now engineered a choice in the 2012 election intended to force voters to side either with a socialist Democrat who wants to impose socialism on the nation or a socialist Republican who has already imposed socialism on his home state of Massachusetts. To say that voters who refuse to support either are somehow responsible for electing one or the other is like saying that people who refuse to submit to the demands of terrorists are somehow responsible for killing the people the terrorists subsequently murder. The guarantee of successful terrorism that results from that perverse logic places everyone’s life in greater danger.

    Actually, both his mother and father were Socialists (with a Capital 'S').  They met in college, both were attending classes on soviet theory, both were espousing socialist paradyms.  When his mother and father separated, his mother returned to her parent's home, and when she died, her father, following the direction of the mother, put his grandson under the guidance of Frank Marshall Davis, a known Socialist.  I told someone before the last election that you get what you plant, you don't get a Capitalist from the joining of 2 Socialists any more than you get an apple tree from joining two orange trees.  You reap what you sow.  You sow Communist-socialist theory to a youngster and you get a Communist-socialist.

      Then wake up and realize that regardless of party, though you don't like Romney,to reelect Obama will kill this country as we know it!  Obama is turning us into a version of a socialist state--no middle class, only welfare poor and rich elite. I worked hard all my life, sometimes 2 and 3 jobs at a time to support my family. Yes, I am on SS--But I paid into it since 1957--and I have a retirement from long-term employment---until Obama took office, I used to have  little bit left over every month--now, I'm often short the last week.
      I don't drink or smoke, or go out to dinner or other entertainments--don't spend on expensive cuts of meat---but with gas heading for $5  -way over $4.00 here---and food, etc prices up a good 30%--and my car insurance just went up---This will only continue with another 4 of Obama---I am not crazy about Romney, but I will vote for him, because to not vote, or to write in someone else who has no chance of winning, will only ensure another 4 of the current fraud in the WH!

  • Wolf

    We are going to save America from the catastrophe that is the Obama agenda. Romney represents America's best chance at regaining glory. Since Obama never had a real job in his life, I guess Obama is unqualified to be President. We need a President, not a community organizer that spends his time separating the people. The USA has been downgraded under Obama's clock. The GREAT experiment of 2008 - 2012 HAS FAILED! Obama wants to put us under a Soviet-style Government Controlled economy where the Government comes up with these 10 year plans. Only trouble was,  THEY NEVER WORKED!

All 5 were Democrats.14 Senators have been expelled. All 14 were Democrats.21 Representatives censured. 16 Democrats, 5 Republicans.7 Senators have been censured. 4 were Democrats, 3 were Republican.2 Presidents have been impeached. Both were Democrats.The troubling facts: 80% Democrat offenders, 20% Republican

    • fiddler

      "Progress" is not necessarily a "new" idea. Wisdom, doing what works is no new innovation. It works. The free-market works (for those who want to engage it). For others, who are jealous and envious, they try to find short cuts; they try to TAKE by force what others have EARNED. I've been in two unions; I've been there.

      • Progressive Republican

        Progress is as old a time itself. Wisdom comes from observing what works and what doesn't and not repeating the mistakes of the past. Laissez-faire capitalism has shown itself to be inherently unstable with clear examples of boom-and-bust cycles. American history is rife with said examples until regulations stabilized the system giving America an unprecedented period of economic stability which lasted until about halfway through the Nixon administration. 

  • soldiermom11

    If you have read any of the recent books out like Radical in Chief, Obama the Destroyer, or The Amateur, this is our choice.

        Unfortunately, despite the unreadability of all caps, he makes some good points. Both parties have sold us a bill of goods. Our hope is that due to the influence of the conservative opponents during the nominating process, and many of their good ideas being integrated into the party platform, that the corporate-funded Romney might actually govern conservatively and repair some of the damage. Or at least not make things worse.

      Should the votes be split in November between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, Obama wins. With Romeny and Ryan, they have four years to prove themselves. If duds, we can vote them out before or in four years. If Obama wins, that will end voting as we know it and we have him for the rest of his life.  Congress needs a facelift also. And, we, as voters, can do that. But, if Obama has the vote, Congress will no longer exist because he has already proven he wants to do his act without the Legislative  Branch and the Judicial Branch will no longer be a mixed bag if he allows a Judical Branch at all.  I don't think it is called Americanism vs Socialism. It is more Americanism vs Communist Muslims. Take your pick. That's my take on it.

      How can we be free with the Federal Reserve and the 16th ammenmdent that guarenteed its enforcement through the creation of the IRS?
      The wage a person makes is not profit, it is an exchange of equal value, and therefore untaxable.
      Every time one points out the names of the owners of these international banks they are labeled an antisemite by the same Eropeans (now Americans) that wouldn't allow them to purchase property in Europe because they were Jewish. If you do not like Obama and are black you are an unckle Tom, a token; if white a racist. If you do not support Romney and are a republican you are a Paulbot, a TEAbot, etc., the international banks that own the international corporations that own the international media have done a splended job, unfortuatly.
      Another avoided issue is the religious one, all of the three faiths of Abraham are aiming towards apocalypse, it is as though the proof of one prophetic apocalypse needs to be proven correct before the other, and all three are in a tie for first place.

      What you are saying isn't correct.

      • Guest

        Yes...sadly it is...wake up fellow American.

      • REYKOOL

        MARILYN, THANK YOU A MILLION... BUT UNFORTUNATELY  THE AVERAGE 
        REPUBLICAN WANNABES ON THIS SITE ARE MORE INTERESTED TO FOLLOW BLINDLY THE PARTY LINE THAT DEALING WITH DOCUMENTED FACTS....THEIR BELEVE IS BASED ON AN EMPTY DREAM LIKE ROMNEY IS GOING TO CHANGE  THE STATE OF OUR  "BEYOND REPAIR" ECONOMY...OBVIOUSLY THE UNEDUCATED  ALWAYS FOLLOW  LOUSY LEADERS AND IF BOZO THE CLOWN WAS NOMINATED AS THE REPUBLICAN  CANDIDATE  THEY WOULD  ARGUE THAT BOZO  IS BETTER THAN OBAMA, NOT REALIZING  THAT BOTH OBAMA AND ROMNEY ARE JUST FRONT MEN PUPPETS  SELECTED BY THE RULING ELITE TO MAINTAIN THE STATUS QUO.
        DUE TO BRAINWASHING THEY NEVER REALIZE THAT AMERICA IS NO LONGER PRACTICING CAPITALISM  BUT CORPORATISM, THEY CANNOT EVEN TELL THE DIFFERENCE. SO LESSON #1 FOR THE IDIOTS  ROMNEY SUPPORTERS (OR OBAMA ...SAME THING) :
        CORPORATISM  IS A MERGING OF BIG GOVERNMENT  WITH  BIG CORPORATIONS AND  MULTI NATIONAL CARTELS, IT IS PURE FASCISM... BUT VERY  MISLEADING  FOR THE AVERAGE JOE, BECAUSE THE RIGHT WINGERS SEE ONLY THE GOVERNMENT CONTROL SIDE OF IT ASSUMING WRONGLY THAT IT IS "SOCIALISM"  AND THE LEFT WINGERS SEE ONLY THE  BIG BUSINESS SIDE OF IT  ...ASSUMING WRONGLY THAT IT IS  "GREADY CAPITALISM"  WHEN IN FACT IT IS A COMBINATION ....
        THEIR GOAL (OBAMA'S AND ROMNEY ALIKE) IS TO ABSORB AMERICA INTO A ONE WORLD PRIVATE COMMERCIAL GOVERNMENT (CONTROLLED BY MULTI NATIONAL CORPORATIONS)  USING  INTERNATIONAL TRADE AGREEMENTS  BY PASSING OUR CONSTITUTION ONE LEGISLATION AT THE TIME...AND  THAT WHAT BUSH...OBAMA...AND MITT ROMNEY  ARE PART OF....AND THAT IS WHY THE RULING ELITE BEHIND THE PLAN HAD TO CHOSE ROMNEY AND PUSH  RON PAUL AWAY USING ILLEGAL DIRTY TRICKS 

      • REYKOOL

        MARILYN  GIVE ME YOUR DOCUMENTATION  TO PROVE I AM WRONG. 
        IDIOTS ON THIS SITE ONLY COME WITH  INSULTS  OR NAME  CALLING BUT NEVER  BRING DOCUMENTED FACTS   TO BACK UP  WHAT THEY SAY  ABOUT ROMNEY OR OBAMA ...EVERYTHING I   MENTIONED  ON WHAT BOTH MITT ROMNEY AND OBAMA  ARE SUPPORTING IS  WRITTEN ON THEIR CAMPAIGN BROCHURES.....THERE IS ALMOST NO DIFFERENCE  BETWEEN ROMNEY AND OBAMA  BOTTOM LINE  POLICIES....CAP-AND-TRADE, WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST....USE OF FEDERAL RESERVE PRINTING MACHINE....FACTS  OUR NATIONAL DEBT IS NOW $16 TRILLIONS  THE WAR COSTED $3.4 TRILLION  (SEE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT DATAS, EDUCATE YOURSELF)  AND THE DEBT WILL NEVER GO DOWN DUE TO THE WAY THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYTEM ISSUE OUR CURRENCY IN PRINTING IT FOR $4 CENTS AND SELLING IT BACK  TO OUR TREASURY DEPARTMENT AT FULL FACE VALUE AS A "LOAN" ....THE CREATION OF A CENTRAL BANK (WHICH WE HAVE SINCE 1913) WAS PART OF THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO..THE GRACE COMMISSION  REPORT CREATED BY RONALD REAGAN  DEMONSTRATED THAT THE ENTIRE AMOUNT OF MONEY COLLECTED BY THE IRS IN  FEDERAL INCOME TAX  IS USED TO PAY ONLY THE INTEREST ON THE NATIONAL DEBT ...NONE OF IT GOES TO PAY FOR ANY GOVERNMENT SERVICES....RON PAUL IS THE ONLY PERSON IN CONGRESS WHO ADMITTED THIS FACT (SEE NATIONAL ARCHIVES OR GOOGLE GRACE COMMISSION REPORT) SO IF PEOPLE ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO BELIEVE THAT ROMNEY IS GOING TO CHANGE THAT. GOOD LUCK !!!
        LIKE I SAID THOSE WHO FORGET HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT
        AMERICAN IDIOTS WHO VOTE FOR ROMNEY YOU WILL DESERVE WHO YOU VOTE FOR, AND THAT WHAT I SAID TO THE OBAMA VOTERS FOUR YEARS AGO  AND THEY LAUGHED AT ME.....RON PAUL IS THE ONLY REAL REPUBLICAN HERE PROMOTING FREE MARKET CAPITALISM  AND  IS STRICTLY FOLLOWING OF THE  US CONSTITUTION....MITT ROMNEY IS REALLY A JOKE FOR FOX NEWS PIN HEADS.

    You must be either on welfare or in the cabinet of barook obummer.  Noone with a functioning mind could in good conscience defend the activity of this monster anti American bum.  You are either a loyal black man afraid you will lose your checks, a sperm donor living off of the many  incubators you are impregnating or just plain dumb

    • Tcm Ultor

      Thank you for making my point, "a loyal black man," this is what this Romney candidate is about. Not about America, not about policy, not about the future, but about race.
      Unlike others who get it, I am not upset with you, I understand the power that has bent your thinking, but REYKOOL is factualy correct, you are emotivly not.

    • REYKOOL

      MPDMD  :  YOUR POWERFUL COMMENT SHOWS YOUR INTELLECT...AND DEMONSTRATES  HOW IGNORANT  AND BLINDLY PARTISAN YOU ARE , THINKING EXACTLY THE SAME WAY THAT YOUR  DEMOCRAT CONTER PARTS :  FOLLOWING THE PARTY LINE  NO MATTER WHAT RATHER THAT WHAT IS GOOD FOR THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS....IT SHOWS ALSO  HOW  POLITICALLY NAIVE  AND IGNORANTS    ROMNEY  VOTERS ARE....DID NT  YOU READ   MY COMMENTS  ? DEMONSTRATING THAT THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN  ROMNEY AND OBAMA ....THEY BOTH SUCKS !   AND BASICALLY STAND FOR THE VERY SAME  THING ...THEY ARE .SERVING THE CORPORATIST  OLIGARCHY. NOT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ...PRIVATIZING PROFITS WHILE  SOCIALIZING LOSSES  (BAIL OUT  WHICH THEY BOTH VOTED FOR) IS SOCIALISM FOR  WALL STREET MILLIONAIRES   IT IS NOT FREE MARKET CAPITALISM  MORON,  GO BACK TO SCHOOL...  I  OWN A SUCCESSFUL  MUSIC PUBLISHING COMPANY IN NEW YORK  AND IS A REGISTERED REPUBLICAN BUT  I AM  REALLY A LIBERTARIAN  WORKING WITH RON PAUL  FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS  . I BELIEVE IN THE CONSTITUTION   BOTH ROMNEY AND OBAMA  SUPPORTS  UNCONSTITUTIONAL LEGISLATIONS.....IS  CAP-AND -TRADE AMERICANISM ? IS THE PATRIOT ACT  AMERICANISM, IS  SUPPORTING SPYING ON AMERICANS AND  ORDER THEIR ASSASSINATION AMERICANISM. ROMNEY ALSO  LIKE OBAMA   SUPPORT AND PRACTICED  OFF-SHORING AMERICAN JOB ..IS IT AMERICANISM .READ THE CONSTITUTION  RETARD....STAY AWAY FROM FOX NEWS  AND EDUCATE YOURSELF INSTEAD OF  CALLING NAME  PEOPLE YOU DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND ...

    I'm voting for the American, Mitt Romney, over the socialist, Ozero

    • Tcm Ultor

      Gary, you mean the "White Guy," don't you? Both Obama and Romney are socialists.

      • Edward53

        I think you are confusing Mitt Romney with Ron Paul.

      • jo_ella

        Get off the racist garbage.....liberal troll!

        Gary, your ignorance is showing......you probably don't care, do you??

  • John

    Thats what I have been saying for three years.We want Americanism not Socialism.The Demecrats want to destroy America

    • Tcm Ultor

      You said "We." Who is we, you and that turd in you pocket? Your love of country clouds your reasoning. Romney and Obama are the twins of deception and evil. Your support of either of them is the breast milk of the fall.

      • SniperMom

        I'm part of that turd in his pocket and there are millions more of us in his pocket  . So, yeah, it's a pretty friggin' big turd. You and your kind, can vote for more of Obama's BS and you will get what you deserve. I and the rest of the turds in John's pocket will vote for the America way. I'd tell you to GFY, but you just ain't worth it.

    My concern is that before Romney even received the nomination, he made sure that Republican rules were changed. The rules guaranteed freedom and were a fail-safe against rotten political machines in some states, late breaking information on a candidate that makes him unacceptable, and many other foreseeable problems that can occur in primaries and between primaries prior to the RNC.  In addition, the rules change crushes grass roots involvement. Now, we have a Putin style totalitarian Republican Party.

    We are also seeing another rank happening from the Tea Party, Patriots,  and Heritage think tank: Farmers are being targeted as the first to have their subsidies eliminated. What about the subsidies to other industries? Didn't we just have another bailout? What about all of those industries that receive R & D grants from the government, especially all of those pharmaceuticals that spend hundreds of millions to develop drugs that cost consumers or the government billions, but provide minimal relief for patient symptoms?

    What we are seeing in both of these instances is the usual Republican attack on the "little guy" instead of maintaining freedom and protecting the grass roots, in the first case, and ending the Republican bias in favor of corporatism and globalism in the second instance. For those who do not know, farmers are all land poor right now. They are investing in their siblings share of the farm or their uncles place. If this works anything like the gold market, elimination of price supports will guarantee that the "Big" cereal companies will manipulate the market, and put the farmers out of business. (The government no longer stops market manipulation. Morgan Stanley's manipulation of the gold and silver markets are proof of that.) The crusade against the farmers is a game to put the farmers out of business, so that farming can be corporatized. Why aren't the Tea Party and the Republicans calling to break up the "Too Big to Fail" banks that have behaved so egregiously? In spite of what Romney and Ryan are saying, the Republican Party is still trying to destroy the Middle Class. I'm not a Socialist, but starting on the "Little Guys", and leaving the industries unscathed that have cost this country trillions of dollars is the last thing I will respect. Watching these rotten Republican games makes me very pleased  with my original voting decision.

    Vote for a Republican House and Senate, and vote your conscience for president. I will write-in for Ron Paul for president, the person who is really interested in Americanism and freedom, not the guy who is attacking the "Little Guys" every time, and patting big corporate fannies with trillions of dollars in a year, when the farmer's part of the farm bill amounts to a few billion.

    Finally the message is clear. Yes, this election is clearly about Capitalism vs. the cancer of Socialism/ Marxism , as practiced by the Left for years now.  However, as a voter be sure your Congressmen are on board with the numerous changes that will need to take place to remove this cancer that has been growing for years. It has spread to every Federal Agency and needs to removed.

  • Citizen1vote

    Giacomo, It will take more than a president to keep America a Constitutional Republic. All socialist, communist and marxist have to be removed from our Federal, State and Local governments. We have to get out of the United Nations and defund the United Nations and use the building for something else. We have to abolish the so called Patriot Act, abolish the Department of Education, abolish the BATFE. Stop giving our tax money to other countries, abolish the VAWA to name a few the list goes on. The above list keeps us on the road to socialism/communism. romney will continue us down the road of socialism/communism but it will just be a little slower than what obama wanted to do.

  • lizaz

    This is only a valid article if you can believe political promises. Of course Romney looks better when you compare what he is promising to what Obama has done. Let's judge both of them by what they have done, not by what they say they are going to do. And if you look at both of their records you will see that niether of them are good for America. And before all you start jumping down my throat, yes Romney would be better than Obama, but just because you're not as bad as someone else it doesn't make you good.

  • unclejohnson

    Life is rarely about a fight. 9.9 times out of 10 it's about knowledge, commitment and sacrifice. Recognizing that most of what we read here is  some form of venting, let's consider the obvious. No one is ever gonna get what they want for any length of time without someone sacrificing.  Nothing happens, positive or negative without commitment and knowledge and without fact opinions can be culled as valid or capricious. Supporting a goal is not always a fight. It's a cause. If our nation is that angry at itself that everyone is itching for a fight we will not survive. This is an ideological battle we are engaged in. The Left has no will for a fight. Most of them have never been disciplined in their lives let alone engaged in a fight. If you want to win this battle. If you want to prevail and marginalize the leach's of our world. Engage and vote. If anyone advocates or insinuates physical confrontation they do so because they have already allowed themselves to be marginalized and can not vote. Let them yell and scoul. They have nothing but empy words. Just like the empty chair Clint Eastwood spoke to last evening. The opposition will not stand their ground when confronted. They will wither intellectually and conform to the will of a stronger voice. Our voice. Our vote. They are not warriors, hence they are all mouth and no ass.

    • Tcm Ultor

      Thoughtfull and lucid.
      But Romney, is as you talk about knowledge, very much the same as Obama with the eception of color when it comes to public policy positions.
      I like your comment, can't stand your candidate. Wish you well.
      Will not vote for Obama or Romney, most of you would argue that my vote wont count then, I argue that votes have not counted since 1913 and will not until the demise of the federal reserve and 16th ammenmdment, not to mention getting out of the United Nations and getting the United Nations out of America, all by the way are expressly forbiden by the US Constitution.

    There could not be a more clear choice for America.  I can't believe anyone could be undecided by now.  I suppose there could be some who keep their nose buried in their iphone downloading apps and aren't paying attention, but these are the people who generally don't vote anyway.  America is waking up in the nick of time.  It is time to change this radical government completely out and put real leaders in who know how to solve the problems instead of adding to the problem.

    It means G.P. should have went into Russia and D.M. should have went into China, but that would not have been as profitable to the banks that loan the money to nations that can fight proxy wars while the bankers maintain their power over the political systems they own.

    Learn what is really going on in the world and our country...see ex-KGB agent telling of his job in the KGB and what it entailed and still does.  Are we doomed as a sovereign nation, is the handwriting on the wall...we literally cannot get there using petitions or emails, no, it is going to take force.  This insidious disease of socialism and communism has been creeping into our country for the past 50 plus years..Reagan knew the depths of it and there are a few others but they won't speak out as strongly as they need to in order to wake up the American people, and when I say American people I don't mean those kinds of folks who do not hold in high esteem the values that our country was founded upon..there are too many to name but you know who they are.  Those people will always have the ring in their nose to be led like the proverbial sheep, and it is sad.  It is not the economy, nor obamacare or the war in Iraq/Afghanistan nor any of the other distractions that are put in front of the American people to keep them from seeing the real problem and that is that sick Virus that has taken root in this country many years ago...now those that have sprung from those seeds are now in power, running our educational systems and teaching the young their communist/socialist agenda.  There are those that are active and know what they are then there are those that don't know what they are but have been brainwashed for so long you will never convince them that we are at war now and I don't mean on the battlefield of Iraq or Afghanistan, I mean right here in our own country.  We are the last vestige of freedom in this world with the military strength to battle any force thrown at us.. if any of you remember what Kruschev said "We will take America without firing a shot"...well, now we know what he meant.  These people will line you up against the wall and shoot you without a trial or hearing and if you think it cannot happen in this country...well it alreaedy it.  See this 9 minute video about an ex-KGB agent telling us like it is..

    As you may know the Romney camp is pushing new rules, specifically Rule 15, which would strip grassroots activists of any meaningful ability to participate in presidential politics. The process has always been bottom-up, but Romney officials have rewritten the rules so that the nominee can stifle any dissent on the platform committee and even unseat delegates. Make no mistake, this will weaken the process by which Republicans chose their candidate for president and push the grassroots out of the party process.

    From Buzzfeed reporter Zeke Miller: "The Republican National Convention Rules Committee voted 63-38 to approve a new rule allowing granting the Republican National Committee — and Mitt Romney — sweeping new powers to amend the governing document of the GOP.

    The move came at the encouragement of Mitt Romney supporters on the committee, including Romney's top lawyer Ben Ginsberg, who stressed that it would grant "flexibility" to Romney and the committee to adapt to changing political environments. The rule allows the RNC to amend the party's rules without a vote by the full Republican National Convention. And it offers the Republican Establishment a new tool to keep at b[a]y Tea Party initiatives that threaten to embarrass or contradict party leadership and stray from a planned message." 

    Looks like our choice is the same old same-ism to me...We're trading one dictatorship for another.

  • Gmarshall

    There is no choice but to vote Romney/Ryan.  We have seen our country degenerate and decline in the past four years and we simply cannot afford more of the same.  The Obama social experiment has failed miserably and now it is time to get back to the fundamentals of Americanism where free enterprise is once again acceptable and supported.

    Socialism is just one step from Communism. That's how it starts !  Read about history, such as the russian book FORWARD, it tells how to turn and control the masses first to socialism then to communism. Hence: ( We cannot expect the american people to jump  from capitalism and freedom  to communism. But we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of socialism until one day they wake up to find they are Communist's.  NIKITA KRUSHEV, RUSSIAN RULER. )

    • silvertop

      Your recommendation to read about history is what this nations needs. Even our leaders don't seem to know hstory. Communism is one party rule, you think there is religious freedom, freedom of speech in China? The people obama appointed tells of his ideology. Van Jones a communist, Anita Dunn a Mao worshipper, the Americans for Progress Asociation is a supporter. For Socialism, the Russian word is Forward, the Chinese word is Forward, and our American word is "Progressives".

    Better insurance companies making my medical decisions than the government. I have several health conditions that are treated with drugs, medical procedures, etc. the insurance questions 3/4 of my doctors recommendations and rejects 1/4 of those. I have paid for some procedures, nothing frivolous, and they have been very beneficial. But hey I get my health insurance on my own, pay very high prices a dmprobably could be ca called at any time. Then I'll be turned down by any provider because I have Pre existing conditions. Funny Romney will repeal Obamacare but nary a word about what he will do. Oh yea, patient centered care. That's encouraging. And Socialist medicine like evil Europe is single payer. ACA is private insurance. Bring on the chicken and death panels. Maybe Mitt Will make Sarah head of the patient centered health care. She'll stomp out that death panels and tell my insurance company to be nice.

    • hibp

      They government will be ONE SIZE fits all health care and/or the unelected, politically appointed bureaucrats in Washington will decide who gets health care.  Far from perfect is the system now with insurance companies but WE HAVE CHOICES!!   And our health care isn't going to be a losing proposition like the post office, medicare, social security and other government run programs.  I worked for the government for 25 years and IT IS NOT EFFICIENT, it is filled with some hard workers but many lazy workers who would be fired in the private sector.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000175020450 Terrance Adams

    Laughable. Look at Gov. Romneys record in Massachusetts. The only differences between the two is that Pres. Obama is "eventually" honest enough to say what he is about while Gov. Romney is just pandering to a desperate GOP. The President is more extreme but they both have a lot in common. Ex. Planned Parenthood & LGBT affiliations, Romneycare, etc. I'm voting for neither but writing in a real conservative.

    • Wayne Peterkin

      You're wrong. There is a vast difference between Romney and Obama. While Romney is not the staunch conservative I would much prefer, he is so far superior to Obama it should not even need discussed. He governed a very liberal and strongly Democratic state, yet still had a fair degree of success. Obama on the other hand is a far left-wing ideologue who hates this nation and is working as hard and as fast as he can to destroy it. Don't try to paint them with the same brush. It is not fair and is very wrong.

      detailed blueprints for President Obama's second term in office. Just as Obama concealed the true plans for his initial term behind
      rhetoric of ending partisan differences and cutting the federal deficit, Obama's
      re-election theme of creating jobs conceals more than it reveals about his real
      agenda for a second term: the "progressive" program to complete the fundamental
      transformation of America during the next four years.

       True Bobgood. Many think socialism would be great, fair, etc. Pilgrims in 1617 thought so ans they were starving. Gov.

    I'll just plagerize with this script from a conservative actor:

    "I'm 63 and I'm Tired"by Robert A. Hall
     
     I'm 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I've worked hard since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven't called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there's no retirement in sight, and I'm tired. Very tired.
     
    I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
     
    I'm tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to "keep people in their homes." Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I'm willing to help. But if they bought Mc Mansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble use their own money to help them.
     
    I'm tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America provided to them. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have:
    1. the economy of Zimbabwe, 2. the freedom of the press of China 3. the crime and violence of Mexico, 4. the tolerance for Christian people of Iran5. the freedom of speech of Venezuela ..
     
    I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Sharia’s law tells them to.
     
    I'm tired of being told that "race doesn't matter" in the post-racial world of Obama, when it's all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U.S. Senators from Illinois.
     
    I think it's very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less arrogantly in an all-knowing government.
     
    I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must not complain when Saudi Arabia uses the money we pay for their oil to fund mosques and madras Islamic schools to preach hate in America, while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.
     
    I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore's, and if you're greener than Gore, you're green enough.
     
    I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I don't think gay people choose to be gay, but I #@*# sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And I'm tired of harassment from "cool" people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.
     
    I'm tired of illegal aliens being called "undocumented workers," especially those who aren't working, but living on welfare or crime. What's next? Calling drug dealers, "Undocumented Pharmacists"? And, no, I'm not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it's been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I'm willing to fast track citizenship for any Hispanic who can speak English, doesn't have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military. Those are the kind of citizens we need.
     
    I'm tired of the trashing of our military by latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So here's a deal for those folks. I'll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, while the critics of our military can be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia because the girls were Christian -- then we'll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.
     
    I'm tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers; bums are bipartisan. And I'm tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in Illinois , where the "Illinois Combine" of Democrats has looted the public treasury for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in Obama's cabinet.
     
    I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about "innocent" mistakes, "stupid"  mistakes or "youthful" mistakes, when all of us know they think their only mistake was getting caught. 
     
    Speaking of poor, I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement who have air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn't have that in 1970, but we didn't know we were "poor." The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.
     
    I'm real tired of people, rich or poor, who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.
     
    Yes, I'm tired, but I'm also glad to be 63, mostly because I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter.
     
    Robert A. Hall is a Marine Vietnam veteran who served five terms in the Massachusetts State Senate.  Robert A. Hall is an actor. He plays the coroner on CSI if you watch that show. He also is a Marine Vietnam War veteran, but does not mention that he had his legs blown off in that war. "

  • Wayne Peterkin

    The title of this piece sums it up very well. This election is about socialism vs. free enterprise. Socialism has failed everywhere and free enterprise has been a monumental success, yet some want us to travel the same failed Marxist path. This election is about more than Obama vs. Romney. It is about the very soul of this nation. The outcome will determine whether this nation continues as the beacon of hope and freedom to the world or whether we slide down the sad decline to destruction. Choose wisely, folks. Remember that a vote for ANY Democrat is a vote for Obama, Reid, and even Pelosi. 

  • EdinNola

    It's simple ladies and gentlemen:

    Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev famously used an
    expression (directed at the USA and) generally translated into English as
    "We will bury you!" while addressing Western ambassadors at a
    reception at the Polish embassy in Moscow on November 18, 1956. 

    They sent Barack Hussein Obama as the undertaker.

  • Marat Bandemer, Jr

    Should Obama be reelected we will be facing more than Socialism.  He will bring into play a despotic government with all the elements therein.  For four years he has shown his contempt for all things representative of our Republic, and yet for nearly four years he has been allowed a free hand.  We had our chance to save America when it would have done some good.  The damage has already been done,  and is near being irreparable.  Just how opposed to Obama and his illegal presidency, and ensuing treasonous activity was the Congress of the United States, or the Supreme Court?  Thousands of words have been spoken, and more written about how he must be deposed, removed from office, etc.  Why is he still there?
    I believe that is open to more than a modicum of conjecture.  Perhaps more has changed than we realize.  Perhaps "two party" is no longer applicable to our system.  In addition to that, we are no longer a united America.  Those days, I fear, are gone forever.  The Mexicans and all of the other ethnic groups are seeking representation for their interests, they have none whatsoever in the good of the country. They view citizenship as a license to get more and more from government.  Ethnicity has always been a factor in elections to a point.   But, we always remained cohesive.  We have failed to honor the legacy left to us by the founding fathers.  We lost without a shot being fired in a military confrontation; we have lost
    because we allowed our enemies to fulfill their commitments to our destruction.  Loyalty is limited to self alone; patriotism has become a dirty word; and anyone with the courage to speak the truth is vilified.  I pray to God that Romney and Walker beat Obama severely.

    It is my sincere hope that everyone will get the vote out. Having been raised by parents of the Greatest Generation I see before me a totally different country. Those wonderful men and women who spoke at the Republican convention have given me real hope for the future. I'd
    hate to die and leave my children and grandchild in such a mess. Personally I feel that Obama has a sick need to take this country down and it runs so deep that even those closest to him may not be aware they're being used. Michelle always shows arrogance and a bad attitude for this country. Of course, you can't fall in a bucket of crap and not get it on you. Maybe they're a bird of a feather.

    Dear Factsfirst,  I know I am probably wasting my time but you seem to be ignoring reality.  One of these 2 R candidates is going to be the next President.  Sitting out is not making a choice, it is letting other people make it for you.  None of us have the luxury of voting for a candidate who would do everything the way he/she wants unless he/she is the candidate.  Perhaps it will be better of you do stay home on election days.  Many of us are working hard to replace the folks on both sides of the aisle that are not doing what's right for the country.

  • ltbl123

    If it were only an election based on good verse bad consequences for small business as bad as that may be the consequences are far more serious. In order to implement a plan like Romney's government must me retrained and spending limited. Freedom must be expanded and regulation curtailed. Under the current President the power of the government must be magnified, freedoms and liberties curtailed and enterprise suppressed. Everything must be squeezed into the tight fist. The fist in one hand and the hammer or sickle in the other. A government that believes that by destroying every individual freedom results in a more equal and fairer social order. A system not based on wealth but equal poverty for all. The earth is drenched with the blood of those who resisted this type of government either on the battlefield or the gulag. From the Khemer Rouge in Cambodia, to Mao, Ho Chi Minh, Stalin, Lenin. Only fools embrace it. It robs everyone of their bread and its only benifits reside in the imaginations of the truly evil men who impose it on others.

       You know as well as I do, the only way to change things is get Obama out and then work within the GOP to make it more conservative. If there are enough constitutionalists in the GOP, you can bring things around for 2016. If you fight against the GOP, guess who gets in, in 2016? Clinton. Sorry but it's a choice between two evils for a while. But if you decide to not vote for the lesser thereof, you will get no choice AT ALL.

    To Giacomo,
     Good article!  That is our choice in a nutshell. 
     The only thing I disagree with you is on Obamacare.  It is not really about healthcare, it is about taking over 1/6th of the economy and controlling every aspect of our lives.  If it were about healthcare, why would it have all the taxes in it and why would it be administered by the IRS (Treasury)?

    • Patticoheninc

      YOU ARE SO RIGHT ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mckimsey

    Americanism... the lateral move that puts the US as the center of the Universe, and everything revolves around it.

    Americanism... the appeal to your Nationalistic tendencies, especially targeting your fear of what the D D D D emocrats might do should they retain the Presidency.

    Americanism... do you want your kids thinking Barack Obama invented Artificial Intelligence?

    Lets defeat the Democrats before they enslave or put us to the sword.  Sign below to sell your soul.  And remember, its all for Americanism.

We are going to vote in Romney and Ryan, we are going to hold them accountable to their promise, we are not giving blind trust to any party or person any longer. Then we are going to clean our our schools, Americanism will be taught from the mountains of Maine to the desert of New Mexico, Communism and Socialism supporters will be ejected from our government, our schools, our churches and our AIRWAYS...freedom to live, laugh, love and be whoever the hell you want to be, as long as my freedom is not denied for your goal will return to our country and we will never let our grandchildren forget the horrible mistakes we almost made.

    When Obama first came out as a candidate for President I listened to what he said.  He talks a good game.  Then I heard that for the first time  the Communist party actually came out of the closet to support this guy.  That did it for me.  I stopped listening.  Having faith in my fellow Americans I honestly thought that Obama would get his walking papers.  After all we are Americans and there is no room for a socialist or communist form of government in America.  It just wouldn't happen.  Boy was I wrong.  I'm not nearly as disappointed in Obama as I am in my fellow Americans that saw fit to vote for this liar. He didn't get in the White House by himself.  He had lot's of help.  I knew what he'd do but I never dreamed that American citizens would root him on.  My best friend told me off because I didn't vote for Obama and several other people I know said that they welcomed the socialist and communist form of thinking, that we needed diversity.  Diversity is great but communism and socialism aren't. Hit the books people and find out what these two ways of government mean.  If people really want this guy to stay in the White House then there is something seriously wrong with America's citizens.  When he's through destroying us folks, there is no place to go.........

      • JamesPF

         well what candidate do you suggest to fix things, 3rd party candidates do not win big. they have to begin in smaller election wins first to prove they are for the people not career politicians for themselves. So the lesser of two evils is for me. have some coffee.

        • jagans

           To be perfectly honest, Jim, I dont know, and I would be willing to bet that 99% of americans with a respectable IQ do not know either. Why?

          Because it is simply impossible to know who is telling the truth. A big chart on how all of our representatives voted on the various issues would be very helpful. (Hint to the Media)

          Republicans generally care about getting richer, and democrats generally care about themselves.

          The great republics of history were brought about by the simple act of abolishing debt caused by interest, and in many cases cancelling debt altogether.

          I guarantee that Romney, if elected will begin by blaming the Obama administration as the reason that he cant get anything done.

          I really like Ron Paul because of his stance on issues, but he does not present well.

          I will probably go with you and give Romney a shot, but I wish I was more enthusiastic. 

    • Bob N.

      With the 150 Executive Orders that Obama has signed, that the MSM has refused to report even half of, Obama has set himself up to take charge of everything from healthcare to food to energy resources. He supported the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, in the takeover of Egypt's Government. He has sided with Hamas, another terrorist group, against Israel, an ally. If Obama is re-elected, we will have a dictatorial government with an Islamic government-led religion. Since there will no longer be a U.S. Constitution and one of his Executive Orders gives him the right to disband Congress if he calls a National Emergency, Obama can do whatever he wants. I have disagreed with things that past Presidents have done, but none of them have scared me the way Obama has. I would rather have Romney in office to repeal Obamacare and all those Executive Orders then to have Obama stay in office and act on them.

    • Sheila

      Not true. Only Obama is the dictator and illegal president.

  • Donaldryork

    I did not vote for Obama in 08, and i wont vote for him this time. I did have hopes that he would be a good president, but, as soon as i seen how he was dividing the American people and blaming the past administration for failures that he promised to fix, that soon faded. Then, it got worse. It is plain to see where we're going with him at the helm. This man, whoever the heck he is, is trying very hard to bring America to its knees. He wants to ontrol everything in our lives, and in a lot of ways, he is suceeding. There are those who would help him in his quest to destroy America. It's very clear as to what he is doing, and he must be stopped. Our only hope for our country is to vote this tyrant out of office, and out of our daily lives. It's going to be tough for Mr. Romney the first few months to make good what Obama has made bad, but i'm willing to give him a chance.  TOTALLY ENGAGED AMERICAN!

    • JamesPF

       I agree with you, some of the things on his fix it list should be in addition to repealing
      Obamacare: remove all czars and their staff, repeal dismantle TSA and install what Israel does, remove supreme court justices who are anti-American. Fire and ban all these from future public office : Harry Heid, Nancy Pelosi, Hilary Clinton [including Billy] , Joey Biden,
      stop construction of Mosque at Ground Zero area or tear it down if already built. Put traitors  currently in office in prison or one way ticket out of this country never to return. More but I do not want to bore you.

      • Mckimsey

         James you potentially have a tremendous bias.  If the Mosque folks legally purchased or leased or whatever the right to build a mosque there, who cares what they do.  I understand, no one wants a chicken house as a neighbor, but these are humans who probably have a different religion than you, not stinky chickens.  We tolerate anyone who obeys the laws of the land, and go to great lengths to keep the peace.

          Mckimsey, after having read your irrational response to my comment and to the many others who have tried to give you a different perspective for consideration, I have come to the realization that you are an ideologue with an ecceptionally closed mind to external input.  Vote for whomever you wish with my blessing and my total lack of concern for your choice.  I really could care less.  I wish you well with whatever America comes your way.  You deserve that for which you vote.  I have very little time left to endure the devastation that comes with an Obama presidency and I feel for those who will have a long time to endure the change that he has wrought.  God be with you, or not, whatever your preference.

          You wrote: "You will not have as much freedom to think or act if Obama is reelected,
          but you will at least have your Constitutional rights with Romney Ryan."

          You also wrote: "If you tend to the right, or slam yourself up against the right wall,
          then you might want to rethink your position and take a more pragmatic
          approach."I wrote in response: "I'm glad you'll admit there is little difference between the 2 major
          party candidates.  I do see what you are saying however; that one party
          is probably preferable to the Conservative."My first sentence addresses your first statement, and the general tone with which I read your entire reply.  Evidently, I also interpreted the "at least" incorrectly.My second sentence addresses your second statement, and again the general tone with which I read your entire reply.Summing your entire previous reply, to me you say, "I'm a principled, Conservative person."  But then you say,"In practice regarding this issue, I don't follow my Conservative principles, and the danger out there is so bad you shouldn't either.  I am willing to suspend my principles in order to fight a greater danger."Now with this current reply, you throw your hands up, concluding I apparently am a bonehead, who is incapable or unwilling to listen to reason, because the danger is so great a dog could see what's coming.So the fact that I have principles that I follow, and carry with me regardless of the consequence, doesn't mean that I am unlearned, and it doesn't mean that I have not reconciled what may occur.Perhaps you should consider my perspectives more closely, and ask yourself when you plan to make a stand on the principles I speak of.  I don't mean grandstanding;  I don't mean Chick-fil-A days or Kiss-in-Fridays.I for one will no longer vote for everyone with an R by their name in the voting booth.  I will vote for who best represents me, as opposed to you and others, who will always be voting more and more out of fear, always compromising.It was one of the best days of my life, when I walked out of the polling station in '04, and swore never to make an unexamined vote ever again.  You should try it.

      Obama is rebellious...the way he was raised and who he is.... and is driving him to destroy America and the Constitution.  You have heard what he has said about his mother's race...he hates the white race.  He is rebellious because of being half white and half black. This has driven him to want to want to become a ruler and destroyer. He is very intelligent and he knows what he is doing.  He has been "groomed" for this.  Look into his eyes and you will see the hate.

      I agree with Johnson Gray most.  I feel they have the integrity of the lot as well.  You won't see me voting Romney Ryan just because I really dislike Obama Biden.  I'm voting for an eligible candidate who best represents me, even though if they get 5% of the popular vote nationwide, it'd be considered a huge success.

      So I avoid the lesser of two evils argument, and have a clear conscience in the process.  This is possible as well for anyone who reads this.  Go for it!

          any sensible person knows that ONLY two candidates have a chance to win this election. Johnson would have to win this election to have any "chance" to "make real change". Ross Perot helped to elect Slick Willie!

        • argusmanargus

          I am certain if Gary Johnson received the votes, he would win. He is legally on the ballot in my state, and will probably be in all states.

          Electability is really a problem of the people in our country.. we simply will not vote for candidates who are more honest, integritous, less baggage, well qualified, if they don't come representing the Republican or Democratic parties.

          This is the problem... The system doesn't help, but we help ourselves in too small of groups to make any real change.

        • Gbr240

          Mckimsey will not do well if obama wins because he will own nothing. All his assets will belong to the government. Communist / socialists take away ALL property. Read agenda 21. Everything belongs to the rulers(your owners), you are TOLD where to live, given whatever food they want you to have, and will do the work THEY give you at the amount THEY deem you are worth. SEIU like $8.00 per hour.

        • Mckimsey

           Maybe Gbr240, but I'll still be original.

          Keep in mind under this scenario you would probably be the same $8.00 an hour work as me.  Also, there is a good chance I'll be dead, same as you. There is a high likelihood war would result from this being illegally made into law.

        • Bob

          You hit the nail on the head GJ. I see it. The workers and educated will vote Rommney and Ryan. The uneducated,freeloaders will help obama and the old drunk uncle. This country is on the brink of what happened to russia. I think TX has the right idea.,,,,,, or like SC. Tell em all to Screw Off.!

        • Mckimsey

          Bob, I disagree that Romney is going support state's rights as much as you think.  He is a Federalist, strong central government guy all the way.

          If he is elected, I would love to be prover wrong.

        • http://twitter.com/dlsimm2010 David Simmons

          State why you came to this conclusion....you have a right to your opinion but you do not have a right to your own facts....

        • argusmanargus

          Since he has never held Federal office, you know full well I will have little in the way of conclusive examples beyond things he's said, what he did as governor, or the things he defines himself by, such as being a Republican.

          He is distinctly different from say Ron Paul, far more central government. Romney's rhetoric, his solutions, are very in line with Republicans of the last 32 years. Say one thing to get elected, when in office, go hog wild, just as Democrats do. His solutions require large Federal government involvement. He supports the Patriot Act, continued Illegality of many drugs, the continued War in Afghanistan, Israel (we should cut aid to all foreign nations, in most situations, even Israel), Embargo and travel ban on Cuba, Reforming Medicare instead of privatizing, Romneycare when he was governor of Massachusetts, just to give an idea what he supports.

          I mean, with all respect, you have to be putting the blinders on purposefully to think he is simply not going to be an extension of Bush 1 or 2.. Republicans always talk great games, but about 90% of them support big, strong central government, and that's what they practice when in office.

          Which leads me to exactly what I said earlier, if he proves otherwise in his first term should he win, I'll gladly sing his praises and vote for him again in 4 years. I simply cannot support him, and think Gary Johnson is a better candidate.

          Do you really think Romney is a huge state's rights supporter? And that he believes in and will shrink the central government?

        • AntiCommieCat

          Unfortunately, Mckimsey is extremely naive to believe anyone could prosper under socialism.  You will not prosper physically (materialistically) or emotionally or spiritually.

           AntiCommieCat, its a wonder the world still turns, given that so many governments in the world practice some form or socialism, communism, or fascism.

          Speaking of which, we already do!  I actually support candidates that do not push us further into socialism, communism, or fascism, like Romney and Obama will.

          By your scenario, you should try it while you still can.

      • Fisher3206

        Who in the hell is Johnson Gray?  Never ever heard or read about him or them. Your vote will just be lost and won't count one bit to keeping this America.

        • Mckimsey

          So you and I can be equals again if you vote for Romney and he loses.  Then both of our votes would be for candidates who lost, and by your logic not count one bit.

        • Mckimsey

          Also, Johnson Gray is the Libertarian ticket for President.  They are on the ballot here in Arkansas, so that means any vote for them actually counts, as opposed to something that may not like a write in for Ron Paul.

      • Emory

        Mckimsey, I am a strong proponent of principle and completely understand your conscience.  But, I am also a pragmatist, and have been for 70 years.  I have stood on my principles as a whistlblower when that was not popular and suffered, or better said, endured the consequences.  I would do the same all over again, but I would be smarter about my approach.  Thus, the pragmatism.  If your principles call for the course that Obama is taking for America, then by all means you should vote for Johnson Gray and rest on your conscience, becausee that is a vote for Obama Biden, regardless.  If you tend to the right, or slam yourself up against the right wall, then you might want to rethink your position and take a more pragmatic approach.  Use the next four-eight years to build upon the Johnson Gray policies and sell them and take on the opposition when you can field a much stronger offense.  You will not have as much freedom to think or act if Obama is reelected, but you will at least have your Constitutional rights with Romney Ryan.

        • Mckimsey

          I'm glad you'll admit there is little difference between the 2 major party candidates.  I do see what you are saying however; that one party is probably preferable to the Conservative.

          My candidate did not win the Republican nomination.  I support party so long as it goes along with principle.  Romney does not accept the same principles for government I do.  If he wins the election, and proves otherwise in his 1st 4 years, then I'll gladly support him for any and all future elections.

          I will not allow your or others fears to determine who I vote for.

      • joanc

         Think about what you said, before you throw your vote into the abyss, for you   will only  help to keep Obama in office, while  we will all suffer through four more years of no jobs, rules and regulations, and a shredded Constitution. Please reconsider before you throw your vote away.

  • Sheila

    You do not know what you are talking about Kelly S. Are you very young? Romney will balance the budget over time. Hopefully cutting salaries starting with the top of government. Congress and senate is a privilege to serve the country not a big payoff and set for life arrangement. Hopefully the retirement of the members will be significantly cut. And a better party is coming after him..Then we will get back to what we were and are, and the Obama fools will be forever silenced. Hopefully Obama will be in prison in Gitmo.. I heat Gold Standard mentioned. Who took us off of it. No need to buy gold if our paper is backed by it. Romney is a good man. Obama is a liar and cheat and crook.

    • Mckimsey

       FDR confiscated the gold in 1933, Richard Nixon closed the gold window in 1971.  Looks like both parties had a hand in it.

      By all accounts, Obama is a good man too.  He's married to one woman, has 2 children.  All look bright, intelligent, and happy, same as the Romney family.  That isn't to say Obama isn't a liar, a cheat, and a crook, but hey, Richard Nixon, the Republican who officially oversaw the closing of the gold window that said he wasn't a crook, and what ended up happening with him.

      You guys proof of liars, cheats, and crooks usually fits both the Republican and Democratic candidates, if not all politicians.  Is a very soft argument.

      • Bob

        Sir. Please do some checking into the alias names BHO has used to work the system in america. He has used names from indonesia to get college discounts.?

There is a man who ran for the president of the socialist party. He decided not to,and stated not needed. Since the democratic party was the front door for everything they were trying to instill in america. Most sitting presidents have made many mistakes. But none have ever brought the shame that oboma has.

      But more importantly YOU ARE  CONFUSING  "CORPORATISM" (a system that  we are unfortunately using now instead of FREE MARKET  CAPITALISM  ) with SOCIALISM.
      CORPORATISM IS A MERGING OF BIG GOVERNMENT WITH BIG CORPORATIONS and MULTI NATIONAL CARTELS.....AND THAT IS WHAT  OBAMA , MITT ROMNEY  GEORGE W BUSH, AND OTHERS  (Clinton included) ARE SUPPORTING FOR DECADES.....IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP AND AND DEAL WITH FACTS  :  THE UNITED STATES BECAME A CENTRALLY PLANNED ECONOMY MUCH LIKE THE OLD SOVIET UNION WITH THE FEDERAL RESERVE TAKING OVER THE ROLE OF THE POLITBURO  ...
      THE CREATION OF A CENTRAL BANKING SYSTEM (WHICH WE STARTED IN 1913) IS PART OF THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO...YOU CAN  CHECK  THIS WELL DOCUMENTED FACT YOURSELF ....

    We should all have seen what Obama's goal was from the start of his campaign.  He told us time after time what he had in mind, and said that he would never turn his back on his Muslim friends.  When all the candidates appeared on stage together, the all saluted when our National Anthem was played, except Obama.  One of the first things the socialist try to do is to abolish all forms of religion.  They have been steadily and whole heartedly attacking our religious system, but also downgrading our schools.  The have made it almost impossible for small businesses to survive, and have driven several large business out of the country.  The attack on business started long before Obama, or even Bush, took office.  Obama has done everyone he possibly could to ruin our economy, spending more money than all of the other Presidents put together.  This with the assistance of the liberal Democrats in Congress, and the failure of the rest of Congress to do anything about it.

  • GDC

    The choice is simple. Either Socialism, Marxism, Communism or Freedom.

    The MENTALLY SICK liberals will say “ but Obama is Not a Socialist, Marxist, Communist.” But the FACTS prove other wise.

    Obama was raised to be a Socialist, Marxist, Communist. His mentor the homosexual, Communist Frank Marshall Davis (Obama had an admitted relationship with someone who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). The record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at some point in time, he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his “poetry” and getting advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, Dreams From My Father, refers to him repeatedly as just “Frank.”).

    OBAMA JOINED SOCIALIST NEW PARTY, NEW DOCS SHOW
    Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office. ...

    IS Obama a Muslim? The answer IS YES. He admitted on several occasions that he was a Muslim and if you don’t know it we have 50 States and the Islam Nation have “57” States. Another Freudian slips.

    Obama is a PSYCHOPATH like his FATHER. His father killed himself in a car crash while DRUNK, AFTER already haven lost his leg in another car crash when he was DRUNK. If one understands how drugs work on people one can see in Obama’s behavior that HE IS a DRUG ADDICT.

    Obama’s entire life was associating with Socialist, Marxist, Communists, radicals, MURDERERS, drug addicts, homosexuals and other PSYCHOTICS.

    To expect Obama to NOT be a Socialist, Marxist, Communist is like expecting a drunkard to NOT get DRUNK.

    So I thunk of something.

    Of Republicans:
    40% are actually voting for Romney.
    60% are voting against the Democratic candidate.

    Republicans usually make up about 27 million of the 100 million voters.  About 40 million voters are "Independent".

    So add the 15+ million Republicans who are voting against Obama to the 40 million Independents, and have Ron Paul run 3rd party.   No one could argue that would move us more toward socialism, communism, or fascism.

    But the truth is this won't happen.  Most of you do support socialism, communism, or fascism to a degree.  That is why it's so crazy that you guys get so mad with those on here that don't like Romney.

    • jcrawdad

      I don't know where your figures are from !  But I agree with you somewhat, I would say there are about 40% Republicans voting , and a % of them voted for him last time that will not now.

I myself would vote for the dog checker if he were in the run against the  socialist party now in office.

      What's not American is allowing our country to be taken by the liberals without a fight. If you want to allow obama back in by not voting then you forfit your complaining rights.

      • Chuck

        If Obama is reelected it will be because the GOP establishment chose the wrong candidate. Therefore, if you chose Romney as the GOP candidate, you have nobody to blame but yourself, and it will be you that has foritted your right to complain. 

  • The_American_Way

    Romney and Ryan are, without question, the right choice in
    November 2012 but I am still very skeptical of politicians in general and the U.S.
    Government specifically.  For the past 60+ years, other than a short spell under Reagan, our elected officials have steadily killed this country. Government is wasteful, corrupt, inefficient, and 99% of what they pass into law makes things worse not better.

    My hope is that Romney and Ryan follow the Reagan model and try to push as much as possible to the “private sector” and dramatically reduce the size of government.

    • Chuck

      Romney & Ryan may be a better choice than Obama & Biden, but they are hardly the right choice for the country. The right choice for the country would have been Ron Paul.

      • wmgill

        While I disagree with your opinion of Romney and Ryan, I respect that determination.  I do believe that this election is 100% between two choices, Romney vs Obama, Freedom vs Socialism.  Ron Paul fell short in the nomination process, so he should publicly support the Republican ticket as every other primary candidate has done.  They may have preferred themselves over Romney, but they recognize the reality that "priority one" is to stop the bleeding of the Obama administration, and have thrown their support to the only option to Obama.  Romney wasn't my first choice either, but I'd rather have faith that he will adhere to conservative principles than continuing what we know Obama started.

    • wmgill

      Excellent post!  Thanks for sharing your thoughts.  Ronald Reagan was hands down the best preisdent in my lifetime, and following his model would indeed send us in the right direction of restoring American exceptionalism.

  • Gmarshall

    If you are happy with four dollar gasoline, eight and above percent unemployment, higher taxation, government controlled health care, and a 16 trillion dollar national debt, then by all means vote for Obama in November.

  • James Freeman

    This is for those open minded voters with honest opinions. Please watch and then make up your mind if you would vote for the Democrat candidate, the Republican candidate or the Libertarian candidate ( these are the only three partys' that will be on the ballot in all 50 states).

    For all those that have already made up their stubborn minds, please don't blame anyone else after the elections.

    • James Freeman

      Watch the older video of Romney to see the real Romney, not one where he is all pumped and primed by media moguls to give a false face.
      If he is elected you will see the real soul of a dictator. I say this not just because of what I witnessed in this older video but I saw the flip flopping of Romney during the debates, he has to learn that he can't have it both ways, and when he said during one of his debates if he would vote for NDAA he said with authority that he not only would vote for it, he would enforce it ! What kind of a person would vote for a dictatoral Romney that would bring about their own demise ???
      I can not believe that so called intelligent people would believe his diatribe, his balderdash and put a person in authority over them that would ruin their lives.
      By the way, did you see the similarities of Romney and Obama in the video I posted?
      Romney and Obama are joined at the hip.

      If you watched the video that I posted you would see that Romney and Obama is joined at the hip.
      If you did not watch it then you would be classified  as a close minded stuborn voter that is not willing to be educated, and if Romney gets elected don't blame anyone but yourself.

        And what do you propose?  It is easy to say 2 things are the same but to me it is obvious there are differences.  If from the beginning you could not see that Obama was an extreme liberal socialist then you had blinders on.  If you can't see that Romney is more conservative, then my God I fear for this nation if there are many more like you and I fear there are.  The electorate has become stupid indeed filled with those who'd rather do nothing for their livelihood but rely on government handouts.  Which party wants to interfere in our freedom to worship?  Our rights to bear arms? Our right of SELF determination? Our freedom of speech on the internet?  I need not go on, we all know the answer.

        Our Military children have lost their lives and limbs so that we all can walk free I pray their losses are not in vain with the re-election of a Socialist/Communist Commander in Chief! As a female Democrat I will not be supporting Obama or any Democrat in 2012 election! I believe in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights which I strongly believe this administration is trying to destroy with their actions and unconstitutional EXECUTIVE ORDERS! WE THE PEOPLE made America the best country in the WORLD, and will not tolerate or accept liberals like you to distort the facts or try to diminish all that America has done with Lies, Misrepresentation of FACTS and out right Propaganda to advance your Socialist agenda! God Bless the USA and our future President Mitt Romney!

        the DNC temporarily supported the deletion of God and Israel, baby killers, homosexuals (mixed marriages), forced mandates of government healthcare, mandated contraception for members of the Catholic church(Sandra Fluke). Are you it was preceded by a 2 day ceremony held by Islamic clerics.

    If we do not bring our troops home, who then protects our homeland, you?  Whyh can't other countries with their armies protect themselves.  We have loaned them enought money to build hugh Armies, but they prefer that our people spill their blood. We are suckers.  What if the 12 million illegals were to rise up to overthrow our government.  They and all the other disidents in this country.  With no military, or little military, we the people would have to do the fighting.  Without uniforms, how do we know an enemy from a friendly; and if our guns are confiscated, what pitchfork are you going to use.

    Wake up and vote, America. Get off your overinflated backsides and vote, maybe for the first time or the first time in 10 or 12 years.  If king zero wins reelection, it's over. If you didn't get out and vote conservative, blame yourself and no one else. YOU killed America.

    Here ARE THE FACTS PEOPLE.  obama IS A DEDICATED MARXIST.  HIS SOLE MISSION IS TO COLLAPS THE U.S. ECONOMY, THEN SLAM THE BOOT OF MARXISM ON THE NECK OF AMERICAN'S FREEDOMS, LIBERTIES, BILL OF RIGHTS, AND OUR CONSTITUTION.  HE HAS BEEN RULING BY DECREE.  HE HAS HOG TIED CONGRESS, AND GIVEN THE FINGER TO THE SUPREME COURT.  VENEZUELA'S HUGO CHAVEZ IS SLAPPING HIS KNEE IN GLEE.  IT ISN'T GOING TO BE PRETTY PEOPLE.  INSTALLING A MARXIST STATE REQUIRES BLOOD TO FLOW IN THE STREETS.  HE IS ALREADY PREPARED FOR THAT TO HAPPEN.  OBONER IS GIDDY AS A SCHOOL GIRL.

      You are so right.  When will the liberals wise up?  They want everything for free -except it comes with loss of their freedom!!!!!

    • http://twitter.com/manorpumpkin Brandon

      I thought Romney and Ryan want our economy to fail so that they can establish a "free" market for all things, Constitution be damned; so it turns out both sides want what is best for their own side, what a shock.

      • wmgill

        Did you skip out of every history class?  You obviously have no idea what capitalism is.  It is by definition a free market economic system.  As for the constitution, what policies ever promoted by Romney or Ryan would suggest that the constitution be damned by them?  Give one example!  Good luck with that, as there isn't one.  I suggest you pull your head out of the sand and learn something before you continue to embarrass yourself with absurd postings.

        • AntiCommieCat

          That's a big part of the problem... history and civics are no longer taught in the schools.  It is part of the 'dumbing down of America' plan -- getting us ready for socialism and communism.

  • roastytoasty

    My only amendment to the popular definition of what it means to be an American would be that in time past U.S. citizens were able to live their lives without the constant interferance of government regulation; not only in building a business but in every other public and private aspect of life. The meme now is "working hard to build a business" but commerce is only one of the many very important aspects of life as a U.S. citizen. For the past 100 years the Democrat Political Party has instituted policies encroaching upon our rights & liberties; not only in commerce but in all aspects. Obama has completed the transformation of the Democrat Political Party that began in Chicago, 1968. There is no longer anything democratic about the Democrat Political Party leaders or followers; the Democrat game now is Big Labor Big Government patterned after the Communist bureaucracy that drove Russia's economy into the ground. There is nothing democratic about any Democrat. Democrats are enemies of Liberty & U.S. Constitutional Law. Eric Holder + Fast'n Furious proves it. Obliterate the Democrats and start fresh.

  • carsrus

    Socialism                      no             communism, the sickel and hammer     that's what's at stake! This marxist shill, Obama is out to DESTROY our Great Constitutional Republic and replace it with a vile commie state! He's going to LOSE because WE, the PEOPLE plan to OUST him from the Oval Office on November 6,2012! NO one man is above the Constitutional our forefaters so aptly gave US, to live on forever, generation after generation, even if Evil is elected a president!

    No, if you want real 'Americanism' (not saving the rich from their own taxes, shipping jobs overseas (how 'American' is that?!) and keeping jobs and other things here in 'America' where they should be, then vote for Gary Johnson! Third party candidate, Libertarian. REAL AMERICANISM!

      Feel free to vote for Gary Johnson, and sit back and watch the destruction of this country when the unbridled socialist agenda of Obama plays out.  You're an American citizen, so you have every right to be completely wrong.

  • wisenheimer

    In 223 years of living our constitution, practicing the principles of capitalism and honoring our faith; we became the most prosperous, generous and respected nation in the world.

    In 3.5 years we have the highest unemployment, largest national debt growth, the most families dependent on government assistance, lowest credit rating, weakened national defense and deminished national respect.

    It’s not about the man, it’s not about the party...it’s about the policies.

    • wmgill

      An excellent synopsis of the long and short history of this great nation.  Those that don't recognize the dire straights we are currently in and cast any vote that leads to the re-election of Obama, are neither patriots or people of principle.  While I abhore the liberal philosophy, that only leads to wasting taxpayers money, while socialism disrupts the core fabric of this countries value system, and is completely contrary to the form of government that is so elequently enumerated in our Constitution.

    Gary Johnson  supported Obaba, worked for  Obaba, and  now  is a spoiler for the
    republicans along  with Ron Paul! Gary lost, Ron lost, why the heck  would  you now support them, knowing they  do  know have a chance of winning!  If you disapprove of the Demcraps and Obaba why would  your risk voting for a  third party?    If we do not  stick together to remove Obama from office, you  can kiss your Freedom and Rights good bye!

    • Mckimsey

       Gary Johnson supported Obama in '08 for the Presidency.  Were I pressed to only vote for McCain or Obama in '08, I would've voted for Obama.

      While we're airing his stuff, Gary Johnson also thinks gay marriage should be legal throughout the nation. I disagree. I do however think individual contracts throughout the nation should be honored, which might mean contracts in some way between gay folks.  Not a problem for me, as long the contracts always stay within state law, which may or may not allow gay marriage.

      This mentions the real problem we're in right now.  We no longer honor our States right to make laws, and everyone feels all the important issues, gay marriage, abortion, gun rights, etc, should all be handled nationally.  Its the national type thinking that is causing our greatest problem at this time.

      Anyway, its important to realize it can only be assumed those that vote for a 3rd party would have voted for the Democratic or Republican candidate.

      I personally have 2 candidates right now I think are better than Romney.  If they both falter, or drop out, which is unlikely, then I would probably vote Romney, but not otherwise.

  • Patricia McGehee

  • C.Wilkins

    I guess what really bothers me is that the people of this nation can't see what is going on in front of their face. If obama is re-elected we are down the tubes. I would suggest that the younger generation go and watch 2016.

      The
      Hope and Change Movie – A Must Watch! | askmarion
      I also suggest that they watch the new documentary, "The Hope and the Change", an
      hour-long overview of the Obama presidency.

      Surprisingly, this isn’t really a movie
      for Republicans. Everyone interviewed for this documentary is a registered Democrat (or
      left-leaning independent). The Citizens United movie does not delve deep into the
      president’s past. There are no expert opinions, and no behind the scenes footage. The
      Hope and the Change is not about the president... but about those who put him in office:
      It's a collection of interviews with Americans from “purple” states who voted for Obama in 2008–and
      who may not do so again.

      In interviews intertwined with media footage, these voters discuss how they
      became disillusioned with the candidate of hope and change.
