    Mitt will do essentially nothing to solve the approaching fiscal crisis, and Barack will do even less. But if we drive off the cliff and a Republican is in the White House, the electorate will immediately claim that because the crisis went unsolved, Romney was obviously too extreme a right-winger and will tarnish the name of fiscal conservatism for decades.

    Better off in four years? Romney, by a miniscule margin. Better off in the long term? Obama.

    Romney will be slightly less inept than Obama. Gary Johnson would do us a world of good if there was any chance house/senate would actually work with him. Too bad both parties would be childish and work to make sure the libertarian party wouldn't get a foothold.

    We'd be better off if both simply dropped out of the race and we could nominate two candidates who aren't simply "talking heads" or "empty suits."

    Better off... hmmm...

    Maybe we ought to figure out who is going to make us face the facts sooner rather than later. Obama, being completely oblivious to the pain the debt increase is going to cause us, will not avoid steps to get us there. In fact, he's said that short-term and intermediate-term, debt is not a concern, with which I vehemently disagree.

    Romney, however, says he understands the damage that the debt will cause us. But he hasn't said what he'll do about it. I suppose he will do something, but not enough, because doing 'enough' would mean taking away from a lot of people... and I don't think he has the stones to be that guy that we need.

    So either way, we end up worst. I'm starting to wonder if Obama would put us in the better position. His ignorance may rip off the band-aid quickly rather than slowly, putting us in a better place to KNOW the path we need to take to climb out of this mess. And if I'm wrong and he is right, that the debt truly isn't a concern, then his election may be better off anyway (so long as they can get a long-term tax plan so corporations know how much money they can spend).

    I'm ready for the nation to start from the bottom. And I know that the best wake-up isn't going to be if we gently slide into bottom (Romney) which may encourage us to just settle in. The best wake up will be slamming into it face-first via Obama.

    I dont think it would matter with Johnson as he would veto every bill that came out of congress anyway. That would be the best thing about his presidency.

    I'm good now, I'll be good then too.

    Though not nearly as far as I would like, Romney more represents the idea that it is up to us to make what we can of our own lives, and not to depend on government to do it for us.
    Gary Johnson is getting my vote. I am in California so it aint gona matter anyway. But he's the guy that best represents that philosophy. Rommeny not so much.

    Re: Better off 4 years from now if Romney or Obama wins

    Truth be told my income has tripled under Obama so I can only hope things go so well with him in his next term :p

    It feels good to no longer live paycheck to paycheck, but I could hardly credit the president of either party for my fortune or misfortune, people talk about the president like he can wave a magic wand and fix anything, he can't his power is rather limited to impact your life directly...

    .as for me I am still mad that nieither Clinton nor Bush bought me a Miata yet, didn't they realize I wanted one, there is still time Obama, I expect you to rectify this situation.

    The president will have little effect if my life will be better four years from now. That is all on me.
