I have not and will not vote for Obama. Why the GOP continues to offer up moderate or compromise candidates (like Dole, McCain and Romney) is beyond me. I suppose that the logic is that the independent voters and swing states ultimately control the election, but I think we deserve a real constitutional conservative (or Libertarian) choice, rather than simply getting to choose between Obama and Obama-lite. The primary problem facing the federal gov't is that it now (borrows and) spends 24% of GDP while they only dare tax the people at 17% of GDP. That policy is obviously a recipe for disaster, in very short order. Neither party has come up with any workable plan to balance the federal budget, so it matters little who the captain is, once the ship of state is allowed to run aground. Only the congress can control the federal budget so that will be my primary focus in the 2012 election.
