"If Mr. Obama wins, his friends are gonna get more money. If Mr. Romney wins, his friends are gonna get more money. But you and I, and everybody watching this show are gonna be worse off because the debt's going to go higher, and the turmoil is gonna get worse."
Rogers blames both major parties for the nation's economic ills.
"All of them have gotten us into this situation," Rogers said. "Look at the last 50 years of American history. Republicans, Democrats, Republicans, Democrats .... It's not doing us any good. None of us are benefiting by what's been going on in Washington."

No, that egotistical snob will write in Jim Rogers.

Jim Roger is a one track mind. MONEY MONEY MONEY. Sure, the economy is the number one problem, but there are other very important issues as well. Like energy policy, tax reform, second amendment rights, supreme court nominations, getting overburdensome regulation off the back of job producers, etc... The Republicans are the positive direction for these issues.

Romney can increase tax revenues a few hundred billion a year just by standing there like a normal American and boosting business/investor/consumer confidence, making budget cuts much easier to tackle.

Exactly right. Every business owner I know is just waiting for a sign that government is ready to start helping them, or at least leaving them alone, to start hiring and expanding, again.

Romney doesn't have to work miracles, he just has to not gum up the works as badly as Obama did, for the economy to recover.

It doesn't bother me if the rich do well, too. A rising tide lifts all boats.

Do you honestly believe the strategy of voting for the lesser of two evils, in an effort to guide this country rightward, has worked? How long must we keep playing the role of doormat for politicians?

No. Of course, reelecting Obama will fix everything:upeyes:

GT default: Any source that doesn't champion Romney = Pravda

But Romney is a liberal.

It's all very confusing

You assume the opposite to be true, the Romney will fix everything. This is not the case.

The candidates are different, but neither is "good".

Romney has already stated that he likes parts of Obamacare that will destroy insurance as we know it. A shared risk pool only works if everyone is a willing participant.

Isn't it though. A few short months ago most of GTPI would have agreed with that sentiment. Now Romney is the greatest conservative to come down the pike.

NO YOU are "assuming" and what you are assuming is exactly the thing that ties the Libertarian stragglers to the Democratic ideology.

I do not hear one single person saying "Romney's going to fix it all"

He is a pragmatic and logical choice for the situation we are faced with. But in an oddly similar (and I think telling) coincidence both The comitted Obama worshippers and the Paul'/Johnson folks want to project their worship onto the Republicans as if they just assume everyone has to expect miracles, of are counting on Hope and Change,

Both Libertarians and Democrats seem to be almost offended that there is no great worship of Romney, that it is simply the most practical choice, as if Libertarians and Dems reject the practical for the idealistic.They want to be sold a dream. Republicans on the other hand want logical and practical steps taken to fix things.

Watch Romney's first term and see how things get better and ask youself if convincing folks to throw away votes and get Obama reelected would have been better.

ARSNah, they don't have to be willing, just participants.

Both Romney and Obama know that forcing people to participate is the only way to prevent "freeloading". :upeyes:
