The belief that voting the Republican ticket into office has anything to do with saving ďthe republicĒ(as Spengler puts it) is delusional. Thatís not because there are no dangers to constitutional republican government from executive overreach now, but because these candidates arenít the least bit concerned about executive power grabs or illegal warfare. If you think there is a danger to the republic from the executive abusing its power, voting for Romney isnít a remedy. Itís an invitation for more of the same from the other party. Reining in the executive will require pressure from the public and a rediscovery by Congress of its responsibilities to check the executive. As a general rule, no one elected to the Presidency is going to curtail the powers of the executive branch voluntarily.

If there were any hint that Romney and Ryan have a skeptical view of executive power and the executiveís authority to wage war without receiving Congressional authorization, Spengler might have a point. There isnít any indication of this. On the contrary, neither objected to the illegality of the Libyan war, which both of them supported, and Romney is on the record saying that he believes he would have the authority as president to start a war with Iran without going to Congress. Even now, when they might hypocritically attack Obama on this point, they wonít do so. I suspect thatís because they genuinely arenít interested in limiting the power of the executive or its ability to start wars. If that isnít what Spengler means by preserving the republic, then the phrase really just nothing but alarmist nonsense.

Unemployment has not improved even in 4 years. There are more unemployed now than when Obama took office.
Romney is not Bush.
No I wasn't born yesterday but I recognise a big government takeover when I see one. Unfortunately this is the problem here in the UK. Too much government produces a stagnant private sector. The fact, is big governments don't drive economies forward they suck the life out of societies by creating an ever dependent population. This is what's happening right now in the US and believe me it's not the way to go.
BTW cheers for the Fish and Chips jibe but you almost made it without returning t the gutter

BS Demorat, you must be thinking about the guy sitting on that bar stool next to you? Lift your head off the polished wood and squint with your left eye? The popular vote counts, or the electoral couldn't be taken? Tommorow when you boost your body out of bed,'bout noon? Get on your bicycle and head down to your local library, read and understand the national voting process?

Obama's heritage is NOT of Negro Slaves of America. Obama is NOT an authentic, true, bonafide brother nor a descendant of Black U.S. History, but only "OUTSOURCED" with Kenyan roots, a Muslim Heritage, and Irish white mother, Obama to fool the White idiot and unconscious Black race...

Some of you thought I was kidding when I said the wealthy will pack up and leave if Obama is reelected.

Channel 13 News Orlando Florida - "Westgate Resorts CEO to employees: If Obama wins, jobs in trouble"

Monday, Siegel sent an email to all 7,000 Westgate employees that said:

"The economy doesn't currently pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is another four years of the same Presidential administration..."

Further along in the three page email, Siegel writes, "If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company."

http://www.cfnews13.com/content/news/cfnews13...

Not only is he reducing the size of his company, he has made an announcement that he's closing up shop and moving to the Bahamas.

Welcome to another four years....

Yes, Lily, leosnana and Homer...WE will be the ones to left to pay for Obamacare and the increasing deficit.

I hear Obama is looking for an Ambassador in the Middle East but one of the conditions of the job is that is you ask for help and additional security, you are out of luck.

Anyone interested?

"As the four-hour hearing drew to a close, Nordstrom divulged he had verbally asked for significantly more help -- 12 agents -- but the officer from the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs had rebuffed his request.

"His response to that was,'You're asking for the sun, moon, and the stars,'" Nordstrom said.

That attitude made the Benghazi incident predictable, according to Nordstrom, who left Libya in July and continues to work at the State Department for diplomatic security.

"For me and my staff, it was abundantly clear that we were not going to get resources until the aftermath of an incident. And the question that we were to ask again is,'How thin does the ice have to get before someone falls through?'"
