So...basically the election comes down to a guy who will do whatever it takes to make a buck and a guy who will lie straight to the American people's faces as well as shift blame for a terrorist attack. A guy who stands by his moral beliefs or a guy who is ALREADY oppressing the American people. A guy who, yes I can admit it, doesn't seem to have a solid stance on anything or a guy who says he has a solid stance and plan, but we never see this plan in action. A guy who could possibly do something better or a guy who hasn't done a damn thing in the last four years.
And this is a stretch. It's been explained that Romney's involvement with Bain is extremely limited. Putting all the blame for what Bain is doing on Romney is like putting all the blame for what my dog does on Obama.

First of all, Romney no longer works for Bain.
No, he doesn't still 'work for Bain' - but Bain still works for Romney. His shares and retirement package (including dumping many Bain shares into his IRA) earns Romney millions of dollars a year from Bain Capital. The very business model adopted by Bain was pioneered by Romney - outsource and harvest.

Romney was quite Impressed when he visited a Slave/Factory in China.
I believe he has the same Vision for the US.
A vote for Romney is a Vote for Worker Slavery.

Mitt Romney hates America and cannot be trusted to lead it. He wants to murderer America, like he did all those companies at Bain...and all those American jobs.
The Bring Jobs Home Act blocked after Republican filibuster.
Yesterday a bill was blocked in Congress that would have ended the tax credit for outsourcing jobs (where companies are REWARDED for outsourcing jobs to China and Mexico) and instead would have given a 20% tax credit to companies for bringing jobs BACK to America.
July 16, 2012
CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Sen. Jay Rockefeller is co-sponsoring a bill that would reverse tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. The Bring Jobs Home Act would give companies a tax credit for bringing work back to the United States and end loopholes that give them breaks when they relocate workers to other countries, Rockefeller says.
"We now give tax incentives for people who move offshore. That's just about the dumbest thing I've ever heard."
Corporations that go overseas now receive a tax deduction for moving expenses, and they are also allowed to defer taxes on money made by their foreign operations. The Bring Jobs Home Act would change that to a 20 percent tax credit for the cost of bringing the work home.
Republicans in Congress have blocked the bill, calling it a tax increase. Rockefeller says the policy on breaks for companies that send jobs offshore shows a clear difference between the parties... (source)
In an unexpected move, Senate Republicans will vote against a bill to crack down on China’s manipulation of its currency, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., indicated Wednesday.
"The China currency bill is highly unlikely to pass" in a cloture vote set for Thursday, McConnell said in an appearance on CNBC Wednesday night. Senate Republicans voted overwhelmingly to take up the bill in a 79-19 vote on Monday.
But now they are poised to block it. The about-face is in response to Majority Leader Harry Reid’s, D-Nev., decision Wednesday to deny amendments, GOP aides said.
In a setback to US President Barack Obama’s push to curb outsourcing of jobs to low-wage countries like India and China, Republican lawmakers have blocked a Bill in the Senate that sought to end tax breaks for companies shipping jobs overseas but cut taxes for those bringing the jobs back home.
China and the US are in a fight to win a share of the millions of jobs and trillions of dollars that will come from the new alternative-energy industries that are gearing up to replace oil and coal. But Mitt Romney has told Republicans to remove an extension of wind-energy tax credits from an "extenders bill." This is about oil and coal company domination of our economy and the Republican Party -- even as it gives China an economic advantage over us. Romney also is not asking the House to vote on the bill that fights Chinese currency manipulation. What's going on?

I am looking for an answer, a solution,
Ignoring the left and the right wont fix the problem, do you have a solution or do we just sit back and take it?
I do have a solution.
Unfortunately, because of the passage of certain bills, I am unable to offer that solution to you without being labeled something I'd rather not be labeled. Nuff said.
You are afraid of being labeled?
YES!edit on 18-10-2012 by Screwed because: (no reason given)
"(With) a need so great as unemployed veterans, this is not the time to draw a technical line on the budget," Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida (the bill's lead sponsor) said to the Associated Press.
The bill calls for a waiver from budget restrictions that were agreed to during last year's heated budget battle.
Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC) the bill has good intentions, but there is a caveat.
"It is not possible to enact when both houses are out of session until after the election, and we already have six veteran programs that have not been proven to work," said Scott. "The President and some Democrats think you can ignore a law just because it's an election year".
The about-face is in response to Majority Leader Harry Reid’s, D-Nev., decision Wednesday to deny amendments, GOP aides said.
Reid took that step to thwart a push by McConnell to highlight Democratic divisions by forcing a vote on a version of President Obama’s jobs plan that includes tax increases some Democrats oppose.
That is whereas during Reagan years and for many years after they got away with this Objective by playing the Con Job on on US that: "Government is the problem not the solution..." in recent years they have been running this same Con Job on US with the fear-mongering that we have "Too Much Debt & Deficits" and thus of course we need to cut Government spending as the solution to these Debt & Deficits, which again would yield the same objective, if you fall for this Con Job, as "Government is the problem not the solution..." of the Reagan era.
