I remember this political cartoon from a few months back so I understand the sentiment regarding Mitt.
..but everyone can agree times are tough and this country is extremely ill, so understandably it is time to take some really BAD tasting medicine.
Besides, this country is at a point of no return and we cannot survive another four years of Obama.

I have predicted from the beginning that most Paul supporters were Obama supporters in 2008 (if they even cared in 2008 since most are pretty young) and that they would be voting for Obama this time around as well because he seems like such a "nice" guy. Seriously that's the reason they state!
Well, America doesn't need or want a "nice" President who will slowly turn us into the United Socialist States of America. That's going to happen with another four years of Obama! I am a republican because of Obama so I guess you could say I am voting against Obama, but it doesn't matter now does it?
The race IS IS IS between Romney and Obama. No one else has the man-power, the backers, and the $$$$ to get elected!!!! This is what we are left with and while I would have liked Cain or Huntsman better. Romney still fits pretty nicely with everything I believe in.

I am not supporting a wealthy agenda. I am not wealthy. I would like to be but your social programs put walls and blockades against anyone who wants to be an entrepreneur and make themselves wealthy. When was the last time a poor person gave you a job or paid you for something they couldn't do? The wealthy, as you put it, are the ones who create jobs. Those with money pay those who don't have money and are willing to work for it.
Normally the wealthy do not sit on their money like Scrooge McDuck. It is invested. That money is mingled with other people's money to keep corporations moving. The corporations then return interest on that investment to the investors. You know, old people who have saved and are trying to increase their wealth. That is capitalism.
We do pay for these services, it's called taxation. Thus the reasoning I think taxation does serve a good purpose when used effectively. So it begs the question. What is happening to the billions and billions taken in by taxation? What are they doing with all this money?You also like to play the left right game. I find it completely uninteresting and unproductive when trying to figure out good solutions in regards to fixing these issues. In the last ten years both parties have held the White House and held the majority in the legislative branch with poor results. I think there is an underlying issue here that goes beyond the left right paradigm.
Right now, businesses are not expanding. Those who can invest, are not investing. Why? Because of Obama! Nobody knows what is going to happen to their future. Obama and the liberals can take it away with the stroke of a pen, and have. When the economy is sound, businesses want to expand. As long as you keep people in poverty by making them dependent on government, you are creating and sustaining a lower class. The ACA is so far above the projected costs, it is absurd. You want free? It doesn't exist. Somebody is going to pay for it somewhere.
Wait, what? The money is just going to disappear? No more? Gone? It won't circulate like it's naturally supposed to? This is exactly what the banks told Congress would happen if they were subjected to oversights and transparency. The whole financial system will collapse! It'll all end! It is control by fear mongering and scarcity . Once again, standard operating procedure.If you are indeed a small business owner, in which you seemingly implied. Then you fallen for the exact ruse planted by the top 1% (A cliche term, but effective all the same). Have the lower classes fight over whatever issues are lightening rods. Be it racism, taxation, gay rights, immigration, gun rights, ect, ect. All the while the rich continue to hoard the wealth and resources of the planet. True capitalism at it's finest.
You want it to be the rich? Think it through. Take their money. all of it. Dry the well. Kill the goose. Give the money to the poor. They spend it. The money runs out. Nobody wins. Nobody has money. Eventually, the money is gone. Even the rich people's money is gone. No businesses, no markets, no jobs. Who is going to support people then?
