I have a friend who lives in China, they are paying slightly over 2.00 a gallon for gas (not a liter). We are an importer as well, yet we are being gouged in spite of having our own oil beneath us. That isn't demand that's speculation on the commodities market.

I agree with that statement completely. I vote republican because as I stated to another poster, that party most resemble my beliefs based on being a small business owner. My father was a Korean war veteran. According to Romney, smaller government is one of his goals. Looks like the democratic party loves deficits as well. The deficit is the only way to continue tax and spend. Over spend, increase taxes, it keeps us yoked to government, just as much as being a 46% er. Do we really have a "choice"? One thing I am certain of, Obama has been the complete opposite of what I believe in, from day one when he first came on the scene. I will attempt to vote him out. And if Romney fails, I will attempt to vote HIM out. Be ever vigilant or loose more freedoms. I voted for Corbett, he fulfilled the very reason I voted for him, he signed the Castle Doctrine into law here in PA. That's being vigilant.
Well, if it's the party that most resembles your beliefs, then by all means. Don't be duped by fancy slogans, though. If you were really vigilant, you'd vote for Gary Johnson, he really does believe in small government. It sounds to me as you're voting against Obama and not for Romney, and it's your vote, so fine, but realize that is exactly how we got here. People were afraid that McCain was an institutional republican, so they voted Obama. I voted McCain, because I was hoping he was the same civil liberal, social liberal, and fiscal moderate that I voted for in '00. He lost the primaries then because he didn't cater to the religious right. I don't know what your father being a war veteran has to do with your beliefs, I'm a war veteran. Ret. Gen. Wesley Clark, a democratic candidate is a war veteran, and so is 5th district democratic candidate Ret. Gen. John W. Douglass

Romney saying that he is for smaller government is only pandering the the very right of the repblican party. He wants to increase spending on defense. He states that he won't balance the budget for 8-10 years. How are you certain of what Romney wants? He changes his positions and views on everything. Any statement he makes on the campaign trail, his capaingn has to release a statement saying that is not what he meant. I think he will end up being more of the moderate republican than his "severely conservative" he is using to keep the tea party happy. He is starting to realize that he can't win with his far right ideology so he has changed his tone the past few days.

China is a "developing" country. The global one world order dictated by the world governments has established that the "developing" nations not be subjected to the gouging so that they may continue their upward climb to the "even ground" that europe and the USA exist on. Twenty five years ago, one of my customers in England complained of 3.50 per liter gasoline. That doesn't make it any less gouging.

Your statement as quoted from another claimed repubs are pro-war. That is undoubtedly true. War sometimes must be waged. Sometimes it's used for nothing more than a power grab, profiteering for war contractors,(my shop did military work during Desert Storm), or elimination of a potential "threat". That is why I brought up my father's service. If I thought for one moment that Gary Johnson, or Ron Paul had a snowballs chance, I would vote for them. But to divide the vote so Obungler can stay is out of the question. If that is voting against the BIG O, then I guess it is, for I have always believed in dealing with the lesser of two evils when there are no other options. I know what to do when dealing with repub policy, I don't when dealing with liberal dem policy, except get out the vaseline jar because their policies always cost me and my business more money.

Interesting point...In my honest opinion, he is facing a nation of such diversity, being forced into always being "politically correct" in his statements, is it any wonder that back up statements have to be made? I remember early in the campaign, he said "I don't care about the very poor....." the media jumped on it, but neglected to allow the end of the statement "because there are safety nets in place for them. I care about those in the middle....." I heard that and realized for a change, he indeed was referring to me and so many others like me. The working class blue collar! It's about time we have a president that identifies that the blue collar worker can also be middle class. That there is no safety net for them as a general rule. I would venture to guess you may be a blue collar middle class.....

No different than the oil speculators on the commodities exchange. They touch and do nothing and take profits just by speculating.

I worked a factory blue collar middle class job for a major corporation for years while attending college. It was very labor intensive. About the time I finished college, the economy tanked so I stayed with the factory job for another year or so. I finally found a job that I love. I took a pay cut, but it is more of a white collar job with a small business. We make parts for alot of college and universities, mainly in the astronomy field. There are only a couple companies in the world that do what we do. We have done exceptionally well under the tough economy and have at least doubled the workforce. Averaging a new employee every month for the past three years.

After hearing of Mitt Romney's backround, you feel that he will connect to blue collar workers? The only connection I can see is possibly the boss of the blue collar worker.

I want to get you straight
Are you saying that any tax system that takes from one person , and re- distributes it any other citizen defines communism?
Or
Are you saying that it is OK to tax and then to re-distribute for the common good. To build roads and bridges as an example. Or to Individuals..If thier needs are genuine....Which at least Idealisticaly ia the American way...
If you agree with this ...
Then your arguing that Communism is what...
The defination of the common good
Or the degree that one is willing to engage the gov't for the common good

Or
Is this red herring of Communism just a tool to rhetorically score political cheap shots

The clinical defination of Communism is not in the level of taxation or Mis-spending
But
In the States complete ownership of the mean of creating wealth
I'm still not clear on your defination

I own a machine shop. I am true middle class but consider myself blue collar because ins spite of doing my own accounting, I still do get my hands dirty. I would say anyone who is still in manufacturing in this country is blue collar, and it is definitely nothing to be ashamed of, kinda like being referred to as a redneck. Rednecks built this nation, not white collars, but I digress. Romney has a taste of the private sector, not just governmental jobs. His dad may have had money, but all the politicians do. I do think he has a better grasp of the need for jobs that aren't just data gathering and paper pushing. Right now, the big evil is China, but the truth is Clinton endorsed the fair trade agreement. I remember when an official from the dept of commerce came into my shop in the very late 80's and suggested we send our tooling to Mexico to be made. Many ships did. My frigidaire and my burnham boiler....both made in Mexico. So to blame the capitalistic repubs for farming jobs to other countries is blatantly one sided. Therefore, to put Obama back in office and dispel Romney would be hastening our demise since Obama hasn't any idea how to increase job production in fields that will put us back on top. Manufacturing. Not just cars, but other tangible goods. We can't create more government jobs, or healthcare jobs, there isn't revenue from exporting to support them.
Time to re-invest in small business, less in big government and big business.

The last statement reeks of Obama. Didn't he just get done saying that no one builds their own business, that we all build it for them. That smells like communism to me.
As far as taxation goes, there is a line when it becomes abusive. When a government becomes too powerful that the taxes you pay outweigh your ability to provide for your OWN family. I see the "transparency" we were promised by this administration to have been an excellent way to be sure that money was being spent properly. Yet, Obama is as transparent as a brick wall. Our infrastructure in this country is paramount. Our military must be preserved and the space program needs to be refunded. The space program has provided us with structural steels, polymers, and superior insulation just to name a few. Obama did fut funds loose for infrastructure repair, but cut space program funding.
