    I am a states' rights voter and you are a big govt. liberal. If Romneyis the candidate he will have my vote. In fact regardless of the Republican candidate I will NOT be voting for Obama since results matter and the following doesn't warrant support for Obama

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!

    Not really, the mandate is an attempt to get the people who show up at the ER's without insurance and never pay the bill.

    The mandate is an overreach on the part of a liberal President who wants European style socialism here. Wonder if he wants the riots as well?

    A Standard & Poor’s director said for the first time Thursday that one reason the United States lost its triple-A credit rating was that several lawmakers expressed skepticism about the serious consequences of a credit default — a position put forth by some Republicans.

    Without specifically mentioning Republicans, S&P senior director Joydeep Mukherji said the stability and effectiveness of American political institutions were undermined by the fact that “people in the political arena were even talking about a potential default,” Mukherji said.

    That's your interpretation, which is not equal to reality. Sorry, it's been addressed before.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    How does being wrong multiple times before in other discussions change you being wrong now?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You seem to lack the basic understanding of what really causes debt, spending. We cannot afford a 3.7 trillion dollar a year Federal Govt. nor should we. Only a liberal believes in a massive Fed. Govt that size

    Single payer government insurance is they have in Europe. Profit making health insurance companies are not allowed in many of those countries. The only thing a profit insurance companies adds to healthcare is cost - they are really only like banks that can decide whether you live or --------------------------die.

    So those numbers are misinterpreted? Interesting, so what in these numbers are wrong? Is it possible that the ones misinterpreting the numbers are the liberals as I defined them.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!
