Do You Care Whether Obama or Romney Wins?
I personally want Romney to win for economical, national defense, and constitutional reasons. But that's my opinion and why I will vote. Do you care who wins?
I am voting for Gary Johnson, but I live in California, and our electoral college will most definitely vote for President Obama.
I would rather see President Obama be re-elected than Gov. Romney take the reins. Though both parties tend to do little to fix many of our nation's true problems. I feel as though the Democrats at least say and attempt to make things better for the general population. I can't say the same for the Republicans, who feel bent on hiding behind so called 'religious' issues instead of creating actual reforms that will fix our broken governmental systems.
In terms of National Defense, President Obama is almost on par with President George W. Bush, though with State and Defense Departments showing more tact.
As far as the economy, Romney's plan would put the country more in debt. He proposes to cut government income as well as increase defense spending. His loop-holes would not save the government money, merely make-up for the tax cuts he wishes to enact. His plan bets on the economy improving greatly in the next 4-8 years, and the government collecting more taxes, though at a lower rate, because of that success.
But what will he be doing to guarantee that growth? Lower taxes do not translate into a healthier economy if that means deficit spending and iff that happens under a government already wasting so much of our money. With an interest practically at zero already, large businesses can easily invest and expand now. The private sector needs to push forward with the economy.
The Constitution... President Obama helped renew the Patriot Act, he signed a bill that would allow the indefinite incarceration of American citizens suspected of terrorist activity without due process. Neither he nor Romney plan to fix our prison systems, swelling and racially skewed with Americans committing victimless crimes. I don't think Romney would do much worse in this regard, but I don't trust either party to uphold the Constitution on certain issues. They're just too focused on building a Police State as of late.
I don't think President Obama will be the savior of our economy, no president can, but he won't be walking through the White House doors with a failing strategy from day one. I am hoping not needing to worry about re-election that he will veto the heck out of legislation and force the two parties to compromise.
Absolutely. My opinion is that we as a Country are Screwed if Obama wins again. Do I think Romney can fix us...no, but someone has to at least try. Did Obama? Romney can't hurt us, in my opinion; but being a Republican it has to help. What I would like to understand is who really would want to be President this day and age? You have to be a little off if this appeals to you! Right?
Most definately. I don't want the dark ages for my girls, more war for the profiteers, and judgement as a family value once again.
I will vote Obama with bells on.
I care and I will vote for Mitt Romney. Obama's presidency has been a disaster. Four more years of Obama and you won't recognize this once-great nation.
The president has limits on what he can do so candidates shouldn't promise to walk on water. Then when they can't they blame Congress.

harbinger of bad things to come? Do you believe that the economy will become worse as a result of President Obama's reelection? If you are a Democrat, do YOU regret voting for President Obama?

When will President Obama tell the people his plan to change the economy around?
