No he can't!
    All good points. Will Romney be any different? Will the "robed umpires" be any different? They do wield a lot of power, as we just saw.

    It's actually a kind of academic question for me anyway. Regardless of how I vote personally, it's a foregone conclusion that California will send its 55 electoral votes to Obama.

    I think I'll vote for Johnson as a sort of protest. It's time some libertarian ideals were incorporated into the federal government.

    that is a good point. If your state is a goner you might as well send a message by voting for the libertarian

    here in Ohio I don't have that luxury. Obama is by far the worst of the two realistic choices

Presidential elections boil down to being controlled by the winner of a few key "swing" states, and those elections are decided by the mood of "independent" voters.

    The GOP has now decided to use "moderate" or RINO candidates, like Dole, McCain and Romney to try to win that tiny segment of voters that now actually decide any national election. Romney will get all of the right and ABO vote, none of the left and, HOPEFULLY, enough of the "key" independent voters to get the win. That is the ONLY real GOP strategy present, and why Romney must simply "look presidential" and not make too many mistakes. USA, USA, USA...
    Newsflash: BOTH parties play Presidential elections in this manner. It's all about winning enough key states, and the importance of the overall popular vote is way down the list.

    The make-up of the Supreme Court is pretty much the only issue that could get me to vote for either of the two major candidates. As you say, it's make-up has far-reaching implications way into the future.

    Personally, I do NOT want a court so one-sided that decisions are almost always 9-0 or 8-1. I want a balance. A balance does have it's own set of concerns, as we have just experienced, but serves the nation as a whole better in the long run.

    Really? How can you argue that when you have no idea what Romney actually believes in?

    You have Obama who you detest. But you have Romney who's beliefs change by the second. How do you know that Romney will be better when you can't even be sure what Romney believes at any one time? Romney is like an electron is Quantum Mechanics. You can never be sure where he is on what he believes.

    I believe he does he just hides them. I believe his views are more liberal then what he has said in order to appeal more to conservatives.

    I think you're right.
    He really isn't that much different from Obama, who isn't all that different from Bush, but he has to appeal to the conservative core of his party, which he does by lip service.
