You speak of the "economy" as if it is an independent entity. Do you know the pieces parts that drive the economy? Apparently not or you wouldn't make such a silly statement. The BUSINESSES and the CONSUMERS make up the economy. Period. The government was supposed to do nothing but take actions that facilitate those two parts of the economy working at an optimal (and now I'm using that word properly, unlike Obama) level...instead, the government has now become an impedance to those two parts of the economy working at all.

It's frightening that I've had to give this lesson.

Mitt Romney is a corporate vampire that will put a noose around the poor and make them worship the elite class, if you think things are worse now..then just wait until Romney implements his corporate feudalism. Its about time the working class rises up and fights back against the corporate bullies that are threatening them if they don't vote for Romney.

If Romney wins, the workers will fight back.

There's something very wrong with your thinking. Maybe you need to see someone foe that. Hoping for riots is very disturbing.

I agree with you, I think that if Romney wins, the country will suffer. It will probably take about 21 years for his efforts to hit home, at which point another president will be getting blamed for his doings. The last thing we need is for the US to become a third world country and Romney would set us on that course.

There has always been an ongoing war between employees and employers. Not that all people that own business have employees, but they usually do. Not that all poor people don't own a business, but usually so. What has recently happened to our country with the cutting of hours and wages are a prime example of the upper class people not wanting things to be fair.

When there first started to be pay cuts in our country, or cutbacks, this effected everyone, but moreso the lower and middle class. People were forced out of fair paying jobs and were forced to now take on a minimum wage paying job. Most people went on strike, and did so by collecting unemployment. It was a way to make a stand and say that we don't want to work for crap wages. The employers strike back by cutting hours. They did this because it removes the responsibility of them having to pay into a UI fund, and also eliminated the UI option. People that work part time don't qualify for UI and employers no longer have to pay into it.

It was just a way for employers to regain control of all the money. Of course the lower class is the ONLY ones that suffered in this because if employers have a full time shift that needs to be filled, all they have to do is split it up between two people and call it part time. It's a way to make themselves look good because they get to claim that they have twice the number of employees, while they are only employing them part time.

I hear that now the majority of the public is getting food stamp assistance. You have to make less than $770 a month to qualify for some help and about $500 income to qualify for full food stamp help. A lot of people are still unemployeed and most that do work still make less than $500 a month.

Since this damage affects everyone on a federal level, I'm really shocked they didn't work harder to try to get to the bottom of it all.

To many of you fellow Americans are falling for the hysterical hype against Romney. With this kind of filter on your eyes and ears, can you ever see whats real?
In any case, I cannot believe you have valid opinions when you support Obama with blinders on. Here is a man who is and has been a bearer of false words from the first moment he spoke in his presidential bids in our country. He loves to say Romney can't tell the truth, even though Romney shows his plans and reasons as soon as Obama is with a new crowed he starts yammering the same lines. He dishonors our flag I have seen him so many times just stand there when everyone else s hands are over their hearts, to me that is enough to not want him as our leader, to many sacrifices were given that this flag may fly.
Look at the money which went immediately to waist when he threw it at green energy companies. They collapsed into bankruptcy...who pocketed the money?????

Of the two men, Romney has a better chance in making life better in our country. So you have to ask yourself, do you want 4 more years of what the last 4 have been like? Grocery prices are outrages, gas prices are out of sight, I see more beggars at stores and Gas stations then I ever have before.
Obama had his chance and he has failed, even when he started his presidential career with majority control, things didn't get better they got worse. Of course there are those in the auto industry which like him, he sunk billions of dollars (tax payers money or loans from china) in their direction. But I see that as an effort to buy votes in important states, because it didn't help anyone else. Wake up, Obama just doesn't know how to do it.

I always looked at it like the problems we are dealing with were set in place long before Obama came into office. It took more than 8 years to mess things up, its going to take more than 8 years to clean them up. I see that most of the problems with our economy today stems from what happened to us with 9/11 and the rest of the time that Bush was in office.

A large sum of money was sucked out of our system, and Bush was behind it at least in part. In addition to this he had also staged numerous investments to work in tandem with his presidential decisions, like going to war. War investments that also helped suck a lot of the money out of our system. Bush probably has enough money now for a few trips to the moon and back.

Most people are blind to what happened to us on 9/11, most think it was an attack on our country, it was a lot more than just that. It was a diversion to overt eyes while our economy was being hijacked.

It won't matter. Obama could run against anyone and if he loses they will riot. This is just common sense. Its disgusting that people will be this way. And here's a thought, considering Bain invests in companies that employ the middle class, how can you believe that Romney winning will eliminate the middle class? He has built a company and business on middle class workers. If you look at the facts, his plans and Obama's are pretty much dead on and will not move our country any farther forward than the last 4 years.

Pay attention and stop you bull# hate.

I don't think its a bad thing that people are willing to stand up for what they want. No one wants to be a slave anylonger.

Working for minimum wage, making slave labor, is just wrong. This country has always had a problem with greed and allowing employers to enslave others doesn't help. I'm not saying we should all be rich from working, but when the employer isn't paying someone enough to afford gas in their car, maybe they shouldn't be in business.

It's a hard thing to deal with because we are always taught that something is better than nothing, and its this very attituide that has allowed us to become legal slaves. Now you could say well you just don't have to work for those lower paying jobs but the problem is that there isn't enough jobs to support that decision, we all want to eat and will take whatever we can get because we are desperate to eat.

If you ever have a problem deciding when a wage makes you a slave or not, just look at it like this. A full time job should be able to afford you everything you need to live, and get by with some extra money left over. If there is no extra money left over, then you are by all definitions, a slave.

Well... that would be true, except for the fact that both Bush and Obama have been drastically increasing executive powers over the past 3 terms. In fact, Obama has done a lot during his term that wouldn't have been accomplished had someone else been in office. For example, the auto bailout, taking out Osama Bin Laden, helping to pass Obamacare, and placing restrictions on Wall Street.

Read this article Shift on Executive Powers Let Obama Bypass Congress and then use your imagination to think what Romney will do when he gets these handed to him.

What a load of poppycock.

Like I don't have to grow up anymore folks...the rich dude will just hand over everything he makes so you don't have to struggle.

I doubt if there would ever be riots. People cant afford it, they are too boxed in with bills coming from every direction, family members out of work they have to help, etc. Then all the flat screen TVs playstations, pro sports and other opiates of the masses will keep us apathetic. The ruling class has chained the population down pretty well without most of them even knowing it. There will only be riots if people can no longer eat. Thats what triggered it in Egypt. Sorry for my cynicism but I dont see how there will ever be an angry mob of people just barely making it paycheck to paycheck.

The US Populace will be too Consumed with the "New Romney War" in Iran, to Riot.

Buy shares in Coffin Makers and Flag Companies if he wins, Iran wont lie down.

You know, that occured to me, maybe thats a big reason he wants to push "energy independance" Because there wont be oil coming out of the ME for a very long time after that place pretty much goes up in flames.

First off Muse7, do you think that it really matters who wins. the only people who control the government are the corporations who make everything you use on a daily basis. if you and all of the other mindless sheep would band together and rise up......the government/corporations would have to reckon with us. i spent 21 years defending this country and i truly do love it, but something is different about it today from the stories passed down to me from my family who also served. instead of internet trolling why dont you do something useful and organize a movement? i have done so in my area, working to get someone elected who knows what is actually wrong, Ron Paul. but instead go ahead and hope that there is rioting so you can look at it from your macbook while choking down panera bread and starbuck lattes. you are the problem and your point of view is....well pointless. do something real instead of hoping for something to happen.

I think we should riot anyway, Nothing will change until we do, BUT we are all too afraid to do it. Yes I am too

its going to be a 3rd bush term basically. if romney is elected you can kiss the middle class good bye.

Hear this a lot. Funny thing is, to me, Obama was Bush's third term. What What has he done any different than Bush? Pro war, gitmo, patriot act, bailouts, hasn't arrested any financial fraudsters, etc. This sounds remarkably just like what Bush would have done. As a matter of fact, what did Bush do that would have been different than Clinton?

Sure, the speak differently, and disagree on issues of little importance to them that never change (i.e. abortion), but its all lip service. When it comes to the big issues, every decision seems to follow the same pattern no matter who is in charge; protect there big doners interest by backing legislation for them to get more power, through war, laxing regulations, etc.

Partisanship needs to end. Neither party cares about the people.

Too funny, yeah, Republicans are rich, they hate the poor and middle class, let's see: Harry Reid, rich, Nancy Pelosi, rich, Biden, rich, Obama, rich, Clintons, rich, every Democrat politician is rich, heck, Castro, a communist is rich, the Chinese political elite are, guess what, rich! How 'bout all the communist, socialists, Democrats give up their wealth? No, silly, they want the power that comes with it, the little folk are supposed to shut up and feed on the scraps they are so kind to give us via their revolutions, too funny, they promise to give power to the people, yet, they never do, an old saying comes to mind, it describes the Democrats to a tee: "Do as I say, not as I do!"
