It's very obvious this duo doesn't have a clue how the middle class live or what is important to them.

I tend to agree with Sharp Shooter. It's difficult for me to get behind any candidate because they all work for the billionaires who donate huge amounts to the RNC and DNC. For instance, the RNC wined and dined billionaires during the convention on a huge private yacht and comped them in the upper glassed inclosed rooms high above the crowd, treating them to gourmet food and any drink you could imagine. The investigative journalist attempted to get any billionaire on camera for a comment and he was completely brushed off by all of them. They refused to even give their name. There was only billionaire who did go on the floor to mingle with the common folk. The RNC set out to get 800 million in donations to Romney's campaign and succeed. The RNC and Romney's staff are not following full disclosure on who donated and how much. As for these candidates, I'm still waiting for specifics on all the promises they are making the American public that they will do if elected.
Before you that support him and Ryan, please understand that I'm not a left leaner but a long time voter who puts in the research to gain as much knowledge as possible before I go to the polls. Am I happy with Obama? No. Right know, the way I feel about both candidates, come election day, I just might write my own name in on the ballot.

Only one billionaire went on the floor and mingled with delegates. Left the number out when I wrote the above comment.

Why would any sane person vote for a Republican? Republican party had total control of Congress from 1996 till 2008. During this period of time they also had George Bush as Republican president from 2000 till 2008. During this time span they destroyed this country and now beginning in 2011 control the House of Representatives again. Why in the he!! would anyone want these anti Americans in office again? They have systematically stood in the way of creating US policy to save this country. They should all be tried for treason. They are truly the party of the wealthy.

From all the posts so far, one that is "sane", would have to think all of you are on the "government" teat and are afraid to facing up to the fact that all we get from the Dems are more in debt (meeting your needs) and giving up personal freedom. Wish you would all grow up.

This is the problem. You think Dems are on the "teet" when in fact the biggest "tit" sucker is the older Republicans on Social Security and Medicare. The debt has been fueled by Bush tax cuts for rich and workers jobs having been taken out of the country creating less income for the government to pay bills. What personal freedom did dems take from you? Repugs took more with the freedom act. "Wish you would grow up and get educated."

Not on Government teat as you called it. I am retired but not old enough to collect SS. Live quite well on long term investments started in my 20's and a pension. Yes, I am grown up sir or madam. Getting thrown out of your home at the age of 15 tends to force you to sink or swim. I was lucky enough to have a sibling and her husband that took me in, made sure I went to and graduated from HS along with holding down a job. Went on to college and the rest is history. Been lucky enough and also humble enough to count my blessings. The government didn't raise me, I RAISED ME!

Yes I agree there is something wrong the GOP. As was stated they wine and dine the very people sending our jobs overseas, letting the very wealthy slide on taxes ect...,ect... It is their actions that has created the need for the goverment " teet " that so many must depend on to survive. Back in the 70's goverment assistance was hardly heard of, maybe a few unwed mothers with two or three children got " welfare " then came the world of high tech everything and with it came the big buisness that bought the republican party all through the 80s and by the time Bill Clinton came to office in 92 it was a whole different world ( by the way the only one president to make any progress in the countries deficit since 1980 ) but the voters couldnt see it and were blinded by the republican lie aka George W. who again reverted back to the big business first and the middle class,whos that? It was quite apparent where Rommney and Ryans agendas and objectives were this past week and it is not for the good of me or you, Unless you who are reading this is in the seven figure bracket on an annual basis. It is plain and simple, so for you people out their who want to complain about the " welfare spongers " you can thank the GOP for creating such a world.

Speaking of taking jobs out of country...explain why Obamas job czar (GE President) just shutdown a factory in USA and moved it to China? Guess the GOP did that also. I know it is Bush's fault.

you cant cut spending like that or we will fold up in no time. If you want to repair the damage done you MUST make it too hard for an American company to operate freely outside of U S borders. If they want to use foriegn workers they must pay dearly. or they could move the operation back to this country and put our men and women back to work. That is the only way and any new companies must adhere to regulations set in place to benefit the U S first. Capitalistic greed is what is killing the U S and the corporations must be forced to put the good of the country before the mega-profits. The all mighty dollar is the root of the problem and will be our downfall.

You cannot bring back the jobs by forcing the companies to comply...doesnt work that way. You have to create an environment they want to live in. That what the all the dems and some of the repubs miss out on. Spending must be cut drastically and soon or it all matters for not. We are "ALL" going to have to live with less for awhile. If we dont ...it is over. Problem is too many will rather steal from others than make a sacrifice.

Yea, freedom and a democratic society somtimes is not all its cracked to be....everybody wants more, look out for number one, the pursuit of happiness and who cares if it destroys another and so on, the socialist way almost sounds better. It didnt fare so well in the USSR but look at China they are doing it in a refined way and lots and lots are now seeing the benefits. even those who were " common peasants" now have a better shot at the "good life " than your average U S citizen.
