    Romney is a center-right candidate. He is from Massachusetts, hardly a hotbed of conservatism. Most of us wanted somebody more like Scott Walker who had the guts to stand up to the entrenched bureaucracy and say enough is enough, be willing to make necessary changes despite the year-long AFSCME and SEIU-funded darn-near-a-riot protest and failed recall attempt. Romney probably does have many of the same beliefs as Walker which is why this survey says that we agree so much with him. But he has Romneycare as his baggage and seems to lack the guts to really cut the crap out like Walker, which is why I suspect we are not as enthusiastic about him as the survey leads us to believe.

    Reynod, musical_marv and Pyree certainly aren't. There are four main categories of political thought, and most people fall into two of them- libertarian and statist.

    1. Fiscally conservative, socially liberal, aka libertarian. Believes the government should have as little interference with personal freedom as possible. This is an intellectually congruent ideology since there is one main underlying principle- more freedom- and many people ascribe to this belief system. The Libertarian Party is the obvious choice of this group but there is a major rift in the Republican party where many Republicans are libertarian such as Ron Paul.

    2. Fiscally conservative, socially conservative. This is the religious right, where the government shouldn't interfere with economic issues but should enforce morality laws. This used to be the purview of the Republican Party but the current Republican Party is split between this and libertarianism and as time as progressed and the church has lost much of its influence.

    3. Fiscally liberal, socially liberal. This is more of the view of the current Green Party and was stereotypically the view of the 1960s "New Democrats." People who ascribe to this want a big government to ensure economic "fairness" by seizing and redistributing money but don't want the government to interfere in their pleasurable activities.

    4. Fiscally liberal, socially conservative- aka statist. The state is the ultimate authority and is best equipped to tell people how to manage their lives and their money. This is also an intellectually congruent ideology as there is one underlying principle- government knows best- and many people ascribe to this belief system. This ideology is generally espoused by many of the current Democrats.

    The country is really in trouble because the traditional individualist, entrepreneur work ethic has largely been replaced by an entitlement mentality in many of the citizens. The people have abdicated the reins of this country to the government to set up the entitlement state, starting with the Woodrow Wilson administration, expanding mightily with FDR and expanding pretty much ever since.. The government has very predictably been constantly seeking to expand its scope and power after that. So, you get a bunch of people who want to have absolutely no responsibility whatsoever and a government that is extremely willing and increasingly able to control anything and everything- it's a toxic combination.

    I think you have it partially right that power and greed and money are a cancer- but the cancer is primarily growing in the government, not in the general populace. The founders knew that power corrupts and tried to prevent the government from becoming too powerful, lest it become corrupt and tyrannical. Much of the crap you refer to happening on Wall Street and the banks are a result of a powerful corrupt government giving certain group/companies legal favors in return for what are essentially bribes. Look at Barney Frank on the banking committee getting a bunch of campaign money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and subsequently declaring they were A-OK, just before the whole subprime bubble burst. And do we throw him in the clink for corruption? Nope. We re-elect him :fou:

    What about the wars in Afghanistan and Libya that Obama has/had us in? He is a war mongrel himself yet he preached "Change". Obama is going to cut medicare if he is reelected (in healthcare law) and he was donated the most money from Wall Street than any other presidential candidate in history. So we know he doesn't really care about seniors and he is in the bed with Wall Street that is for sure. And Obama who in the second term will raise taxes on those making 250k or more (the "elitist" small business owners mostly) will strangle the economy and jobs even more. As for oil we know that Obama loves those middle eastern oil companies.

    He has already raised taxes on that group in the Obamacare law. He raised the general income tax rate by 3.2% on people earning $200k or more (couples making more than $250k) in that legislation. There are also a bunch of other excise taxes in that legislation on pretty much anything remotely healthcare related. Of course those will be passed on to all of us...

    I, personally, will realize a reduction of annual net income in the $2300-$2700 range if/when the Bush tax rates expire. That equates to anywhere from $88-$103 less income per month. That money represents a noticeable change in me and my family's lifestyle. I can not afford another 4 years of an Obama Administration.

    No Dogman, many liberal democrats in states like California follow non issues (thrown at them by the media) more closely than the economy. I live in California and know this is true.
    You took it too personally Dogman. I know most people contributing to this forum know about the dire situation of our economy. It is a disgrace to see the state with the biggest economy in our country thinks this way.

    Adding the Obamacare tax increases on top of that, the top federal income bracket becomes 42.8%. Adding Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, etc. to that as well as your state and local taxes pushes that to the mid-50s. Effective tax rates on the entire income (due to alternative minimum) when all of the other income/payroll taxes are added in will be pretty darned close to half of your income at that level. Lovely, the government gets just as much of your paycheck as you do. If you are like me and pay usurious student loan rates because the government nationalized student loans and jacked the interest to the moon, it's more like 2/3-3/4 of your income. Yup, work 60-80 hours, get paid for 15-20. That's sure "Change I Can Believe In." :pfff:

    You must live in a different country than I do if you think that racism is the #1 issue in the election. The top issues in the election are the economy, unemployment, the budget deficit, and healthcare. Minor issues are immigration, energy policy, and our foreign policy with the Middle East. The Democrats have been using the race card throughout Obama's presidency to attempt to silence people critical of his views. They have been claiming "racism" so frequently and in so many cases which are clearly NOT about race at all that much of the public now ignores the Democrats' false claims of racism against opponents of the administration.

    Now I will absolutely agree there is a significant amount of racism in the country, and it is not only legal, it and has the highest level of Supreme Court precedent of "compelling interest of the state" behind it. What do you think affirmative action is other than legalized discrimination against people of Caucasian, Middle Eastern, and Asian ancestry? Our government even *encourages* this racist behavior.

    Give me a break, this is a non-issue. You are legally allowed to go vote on voting day and nobody can stop you. You can't even be arrested by the police if you are on your way to the polls. The demographics of who votes also flies in the face of your accusations as well- seniors vote in disproportionately HIGH numbers for crying out loud.

    I would love to see Tatel's "study." Minorities are much more likely to be found in large urban areas with close proximity to government ID offices than Caucasians are. At least that's what the 2010 Census that we spent billions of dollars in taking showed us. I bet he included a bunch of foreign nationals (legal or illegal) in his study. Duh, if you don't live in the U.S. there are not going to be U.S. ID offices nearby and it is going to take a long time to get to one! Plus those people are not supposed to legally vote anyway so it's a moot point, but makes for a great-sounding "study" to "prove" that the big bad evil Republicans are trying to put an onerous burden on non-WASPs.

    The whole reason that the Democrats want to not have voter ID laws is because the vote fraud benefits them. The country is fairly closely divided between conservative and ANY advantage either side can get is a big benefit. It is estimated that only around 500k people in the country will decide the entire election. About 45% of the voters overall are solid Democrats and 45% are solid Republicans. Nobody cares about undecided voters in stronghold states like Wyoming or New York. It's just getting 50% + one vote of the undecided 10% in a handful of swing states. It doesn't take a bunch of fake votes in the correct places to sway an election.

    Vote fraud is a favorite of the Democrats since urban areas are Democrat strongholds. They have lots of people in a single place and it is much easier to have vote fraud both be undetected and add a lot of votes for that candidate. You can easily add 100k fraudulent Democrat votes in a city of 5 million people as it is probably only 5-10% of the Democrat ballots cast, and you only have to fudge with votes at a few precincts. The Republicans cannot do that as having a Republican win an isolated large city precinct which is historically heavily Democrat arouses a bunch of suspicion. However having the Democrat win by 1M votes instead of 900k votes arouses no suspicion. Adding 100k fake votes in rural Republican strongholds is much harder as you have to do that at a bunch of precicts unless you want it to be obvious. Having 17,000 Republican votes in a precinct with 1000 registered voters is awfully suspicious. Having 100 precincts in on the fraud deal means a lot of people know about it and any one of them can leak to the press and blow the thing wide open. Thus the Democrats want to perpetuate the vote fraud as it helps them and the Republicans want to stop it as it hurts them.

    Your narrow world view and close minded thinking is part and parcel to the sad state of modern American society and of our economy.

    I could give a laundry list of issues that are FAR MORE important (but MU_Engineer already did) that free birth control and the self-perpetuating progressive race/class warfare narrative; but I know you are too far gone as a to let go of the failed progressive ideologies.

    Did you know in order to get into the Democratic National Convention next week, each attendant/delegate will be required to show photo identification? So, if Democrat party supporters need ID to enter the convention, then ironically, by your own logic, the Democrats are also racist and against senior citizens.

    Sorry Marv, but the progressive righteous indignation is getting old, real Americans are tired of the hateful rhetoric and false promises from Democrats.

    If you have to ask what Romney's vision is to lead this country, it is obvious that you have not been watching the Republican National Convention, did not listen to Chris Christie's keynote speech, did not listen to Paul Ryan, did not listen to Rand Paul, did not listen to Condoleeza Rice, and have not been paying attention to what Romney has been saying in his interviews and campaign speeches.

    Tune into the RNC tonight Marv, you can listen and see for yourself what Romney's vision is as he is giving his acceptance speech. If you can't handle watching the Fox News or Fox Business News channels, then at least watch CNN. But please, avoid watching MSNBC as there bias will not give you the full view of the convention, as proven Tuesday night when they turned the camera's away from any minority giving a speech at the RNC and put the cameras on their talking heads who then complained about the lack of diversity at the RNC; hyposcrisy.

    I thought Rand Paul was spectacular. He outlined specific things that Republicans MUST compromise on and what they needed to defend for the economy to start growing at good levels again.
    On MSNBC, when Mitt Romney walked up after his wife's speech he said (paraphrasing) "look at how robotic he looks walking up there". What analysis on that channel. It never ceases to amaze me.
