US Defense budget > $700 billion, and everyone wants to continue increasing it. Go long Lockheed, General Dynamics, and etc...

Big Steve Weighs In..

Memo To Mitt Romney: The 47% Pay Taxes Too

A secret videotape of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney talking at a private fundraising event earlier this year could revive—in virulent form— the debate Texas Gov. Rick Perry started last year when he complained of “the injustice that nearly half of all Americans don’t even pay any income tax.” The video, leaked to left-leaning Mother Jones (excerpts and a report here), captures the normally cautious Romney at his most candid and impolitic.

I don't want to pick a fight with you Mike, I know what you are saying as far as me making big general statements without backing them up with a bunch of stats or whatever but, I guess the real point is that those that are receiving some form of assistance are likely to vote for obama.

You can disagree with that as well but that's pretty much how I see it....call me a shill if you will.

I will vote for romney, not because I like him necessarily it's just that I want to get rid of obama and his people(tsars,etc...) and policies

Those hedge hogs at that fundraiser are part of an industry that got 1 Trillion in free liquidity, handed out, and they are clearly voting for Romney..

As an American that makes more than 250k, I would be far better off with Romney from a tax burden standpoint. But I think the country is better off with Obama.

Both of them are pathetic.

I would have preferred to vote for Ron Paul, and tried to end a lot of the government programs. I am not against some welfare programs, knowing people that are on them and need their help to make it in tough times. But I am against the size of most of the rest of the government, and the direction most of the focus and money is moving towards.

Unfortunately, the President really has little he can do. Even Ron Paul wouldn't have got anything done, because Congress wouldn't have allowed it. The best case scenario would be to have Ron Paul holding daily press conferences and getting the TV stations, which the government owns the air waves, to rebroadcast press conferences where he calls out the Congressman that are standing in the way of what We The People want.

It will only change when enough people get involved to make it change, and force out or "over throw" the current corrupt system.

How many bankers and hedge fund managers on welfare?

How many bankers and hedge fund mangers pay for peoples retirement? But who needs 401K's, just create another government program for retirement and tax the rich to pay for it. Brilliant!!

Most of Obama's people were carry throughs from Bush. He also has more high level positions filled by his opposing party, Republicans, than any other President in history as I recall (can Google that later).

I'm not defending him, those people suck. But I think you are wrong if you think Romney would put in anyone who has the interest of the average American at heart. The only thing important to Romney are Corporations, and Corporations do not have the best interest of their employees at heart. Only their share holders.

I too think the best for the job would be Paul but I don't know how you think it would be better with Obama instead of Romney ....I'll save that argument for a later date.

EDIT: by the way if your voting for obama the date to go to the poll is Nov 7th
