I can't tell the difference in the conservative agenda and the social liberal agenda. We are turning into a corporation driven economy and that spells disaster for the independent self-starter entrepreneurial individual. America's soul is one of personal can do spirit, will we have the reasonable and collective will to survive this notion that elected leaders know more than the citizens in how we want a society?
Personally, I think that no matter who is in the Whitehouse, we are going to have a rough 2013. I actually think that American manufacturing will be slowly making a comeback and manufacturing created a larger middle class.

I trust none of them, they're all the same. Liars. Lie to please. Lie for the photo op. They'll lie, tap dance, and sing a song to win your vote. And the second they win, the common people are the furthest from their minds. And if you believe differently, I gotta top hat & dancing shoes just for you.

Mitt says go to the emergency room.. well ask anyone who works there that they do not want to see you.. they are for emergency only and not diagnostics. when the uninsured go there, they are treated like dirt. Well maybe not ... most of them are dead

The EMERGENCY ROOM IS JUST THAT, AN EMERGENCY ROOM. not a clinic. If these people would use it in an EMERGENCY, things would be different. We have a clinic, it is on Shirley Ave, or was the last time I used it. The emergency room is not for colds and sprained ankles, go to the clinic or a Dr's office, and this will free up the emergency room staff to take care of real emergencies.

people who are not on Mcd,Mcr, and have no insurance are the ones who are suffering.IF you get all the "free" stuff,you can go whenever you want,if you have insurance you can see whomever you want.if,as a great many are, you don't have insurance or the "card" you pay out of pocket. Not many people in the "middle" can pay the amounts charged today.This what many on both sides of the aisle don't get,the people who are hurting is the middle class.Physicians charging 100-150 for an office visit is outragous especially if they are GP's.At some point even iron wears out and the middle class has been worn thin for so very long. Neither R or D does anything for the common working man. They are busy giving people who have never worked,will never work,or have "worked" their way to the top earner positions by thievery,shipping jobs overseas,and bleeding america dry all the breaks. Yet the very people who built this great country,the comman man, is left to fight for themselves while supporting others with government handouts, be they corperate or welfare.

No foreign relations experience, budget does not balance, would eliminate alot of women rights, would cut or minimize senior citizen programs and will not embrace all Americans (only 30%)...no thanks.

You mean Obama had foreign policy experience when he was elected? Don't think so! How do you like the way he handled the Libya Incident? Did that make you happy? Don't worry about Romney and Ryan cutting senior's benefits, Obama plans on doing away with them completely, along with Social Security, Pensions and retirement funds.He is the one you need to worry about.

It was Romney who said parents could borrow money to put children thru college. Are you kidding me? I have friends with 2 & 3 children in college.

Obama stated families would have to start helping elderly parents or relatives do things, such as buy groceries & get to the doctor. He will make deep cuts to medicare & medicaid.

Either way, middle class Americans lose.

I think the Libya incident was awful but at least they didn't get to the heart of America and blow things up.Either way the vote goes the middle class is screwed. Who do you think they expect to pick up the tab for Sandy,that means borrow more money,oh wait it's ok to borrow money because after all we need to help people rebuild. We do need to help but at what point do you stop. Already overdrawn at the bank so a little more won't hurt. To many expect to much in this country.Obama can't do away with pension and retirement funds but the big business that have them can take them away like some did in the 80's.You are angry about the things THEY want you to be while turning a deaf ear on the real damage being done to this county by people like Mitt.

Don't even get me started on the state of Ga.,just found out if you qualify you can get 10,000 for a car from the state.
