    Name *one* major policy you expect to see changed for the *better* under a Romney administration. There is simply no reasonable basis for believing that Romney will balance the budget, end the war, tackle entitlements, reform immigration policy, restore civil liberties, or reign in the Federal Reserve.

    That cuts right through all the bull.

    The truth is the only thing that Romney and his fellow Repubs can be counted on to fight for is protecting tax cuts for the rich.
    For people who want the rich to pay as little as possible - voting for Romney makes sense.

    For the rest of us - it's batshit crazy to even consider voting for Richie Rich Romney.

    Damn you got this right !!!


    Study after study shows that neither Romney nor Ryans budget plans cuts the debt and does very little toward cutting the deficits. I am amazed at Republican voters willfull ignorance to tho above budget facts and their overlooking costing Seniors and others who can least afford it, to pay for even more Militarism and even bigger tax breaks for the rich.


    Imagine Elderly and Handicapped voting for Romney/Ryan in order to give money to the Rich, while for their vote they will be left having to figure out how to pay for up to $6000 more in medical expenses.

    Obama's plan actually does cut the deficit and the debt, while doing no harm to the the elderly, SS, Medicare and the poor, and ends the Bush tax cuts as well as cutting the Miliary expenses for militarism.

    Don't get me wrong; I don't support Obama (I'm conservative after all).

    But I see Romney and Ryan's promises as weak and shallow, especially considering their records.

    Romney is a moderate republican. The best thing he did was put Ryan on the ticket because he is a fiscal conservative. Ryans speech last night was jaw dropping how he shreaded the last 4 years under Obama. Yet he did it without hate or division. If Romney/Ryan lose this election, (which I have said all along that they will win) Paul Ryan's speech last night set the foundation for a possible presidential run in 2016. There are many policies that will be changed for the better but its not going to happen over night. You need to lay the foundation to balance the budget by creating jobs and cutting the regulation Obama is choking business with. You will never end wars. Entitlement reform will happen under Romney/Ryan. Ryan has said repeatedly that time is running out for this country if we do nothing which Obama has done. Obama wants people to live off of government and government to control lives while Romney/Ryan want people to be able to be free from government and make life better for themselves. Simple choice and Ryan nailed it in his speech for the whole country to see.

    Is this the same "fiscal conservative" who requested stimulus funds (and got them) but continued to denounce the stimulus spending?

    The same "fiscal conservative" that voted for in favor of the $700 billion TARP bailout for Wall Street?

    The same "fiscal conservative" that voted for the auto bailout?

    The same "fiscal conservative" that voted for trillion dollar wars that went
    on the credit card?

    The same "fiscal conservative" that voted for massive Bush tax cuts that werent paid for?

    The same "fiscal conservative" that voted for the unfunded Medicare Part D, the largest expansion of entitlement programs in decades?

    You have an interesting definition of "fiscal conservative."
