Biden will have his butt handed to him on a platter during a debate with Ryan.

I wasn't very happy with the pick at first, but as I've learned more, it's better than what we have now. That isn't saying much though.

There are 2 distinct futures for the USA-a society where big government rules with an open checkbook and the money printing presses rolling, adding billions a day to what my kids and grandkids will owe--or one where you have to pull up your bootstraps and work hard again with the reward being a more secure social security, medicare and lower taxes for the 53% who paid them last year.

Very simple, putting more people back to work increases tax revenue+big government cuts=balanced budget and the 20% middle class tax break. Instead of "You didn't build that", we need more "I built that". Work needs to be in welfare, along with drug testing. No illegals should work until unemployment of legal residents is under 4%(considered full employment).

Romney/Ryan is not perfect, but is the best fit for me.

I strongly disagree! Gary Johnson is our last hope for our country to ever survive!

Romney's proposals would increase the national debt by trillions of dollars. He also has not identified what programs he would cut to make up the trillions in revenues that would be lost by his tax cuts, which primarily benefit higher income people. His proposal to cut medicaid and repeal Obamacare would result in around 40 million people losing health care, and his medicare voucher proposal would cost senior citizens around $8,000 a year more than they pay now. The dismal failure of Bush's tax cuts to create jobs has already proven this approach will not help the economy create additional jobs. I'll stick with the President

People over 55 have no change in medicare, so seniors would pay nothing more. Obama has done a fantastic job creating jobs, with unemployment rising again. There has not been 1 day in the Obama presidency that there has been as many people working as the last day Bush was in office, that says it all for me.

A vote for Johnson is a vote for Obama.

Gingrich/Haley would be a better ticket. Womens health issues are important as a woman and a life long Republican, President Obama has done more to protect women than any president in 50 years! From health care to the equal pay for equal work (Lilly Ledbetter Act). As a protest I will voting for Obama/Biden this year!

The cuts to medicaid would be effective immediately and would result in millions losing health insurance. Also, kicking the medicare voucher system down the road for 10 years doesn't change the ultimate outcome of such a change. The country's GDP dropped 9% the month BEFORE Obama took office.....yep, the economy is all Obama's fault

Romney picked Paul Ryan, big deal, all you have is 4 more years of gov. like little bush had witch would destroy the country as it exists today.

The country can not stand 4 more years of tax breaks to the rich and greed, and that is what the GOP stands for.

Greedy Old People = GOP

Recall The TEA Party Traitor Rand Paul for selling out to the D.C. Bosses by endorsing Mitt Romney! Get a libertarian candidate to defeat him in 2012! Say NO to a sell out! Say YES to a Libertarian candidate!

Illegals are actually good for the economy. The US Chamber of Commerce pretty much openly endorses illegal labor. They accept low wages and are willing to do work Americans won't, which keeps prices low for the rest of us. If we put all illegal workers out of the job market, prices would skyrocket. Think about how many Mexicans you see working around here, even at factories and stuff like that -- do you really want each of those replaced by an American making $10-12/hour, or more??

Of course not, because then prices would go up!

Thankfully, Mitt Romney is an astute business man who understands these issues. He's way too smart in business to "build a wall" or anything like that because he knows we have to keep the flow of labor moving or risk price increases.

That's why I'll be voting for him this Fall!

Romney was required to file a financial disclosure form, less detailed than taxes, when he filed for president.

In fact, he argued that he should have to release his taxes because the disclosure form showed everything important!

But 23 different investment funds shown on his taxes did not appear on his disclosure form and 11 of those are in those overseas, secret banking centers. That's a sign of what he's embarrassed to reveal and it's also a felony!!!

So you are very right Paul, it will be four more years of the bush doctrine, nothtng but lies and greed.

Rob Portman and Marco Rubio were better choices. I would have liked a Gingrich/Haley ticket it's time we had a sexy vice president!

Good evening, America Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of every day routine- the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration, thereby those important events of the past usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, a celebration of a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. There are of course those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to Mitt Romney He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

Last night I sought to end that silence. Last night I destroyed the Old Bailey, to remind this country of what it has forgotten. More than four hundred years ago a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives. So if you've seen nothing, if the crimes of this government remain unknown to you then I would suggest you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked. But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek, then I ask you to stand beside me one year from tonight, outside the gates of Parliament, and together we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever be forgot
