Edge left a comment worth considering. Here it is in it’s entirety:
As much as I would like to agree with you about Romney, not voting at all or voting Libertarian is not the answer to getting rid of Obama. Imagine what the last four years of Obama’s Presidency will be like. More spending, more taxes, more printing money, more borrowing, more cuts to our military, more American apologies, and most importantly a weak foreign policy with Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, China and Russia. This is a dangerous world we live in (as I know you are well aware) and having Obama at the wheel four more years is a risk this country can not take any longer.
Romney is not my first choice for President. His record with health care and gun control is certainly a concern. But to say he is worse than Obama is absolutely false. I wasn’t crazy about McCain either but remember he did add Palin to the ticket to bring more conservatives back. Romney will have to do the same if he is the one to go against Obama.
I urge everyone if Romney is elected the GOP candidate to vote for him, but to remain aware of his record. If he is elected President… be critical. Write him, your US Rep and Senator and get more more involved than ever.
I disagree with Edge’s premise. As a “Republican” Romney would expect support from Republicans. Since his agenda will be moderate Democrat, he’ll get lots of support from Democrats. He will not reverse course. At best he’ll slow down a little.
We’re in a train headed for a cliff at 90 miles any hour. If Romney slows the train to 50 miles an hour, does that fix anything? You keep spending more than you take in, sooner or later whoever loaned you the money is going to call the bill due. Slowing your spending may push the day of reckoning off a bit, that all we could hope to get from Romney. Add Romneycare and the Massachusetts extension of the assault weapons ban, and he cannot expect to get my vote. They’ve had since last June to find a fiscal conservative. So far, it’s been all fail.
