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

    Ronald Reagan who for many could do no wrong asked the question are you better off today than you were four years ago with the asumption that if the answer was no that would suggest Democrats had not done a good job and that electing him would make things better. Romney has asked the same question for the same reason a few times. I agree Presidents can not do much but they do play a part in how successful our country and therefore all of us can be. For me the question will you be better off four years from now is a better question and is not a question of self reliance over dependency. Except in very rare circumstances self reliance is always best and can not be profitably abandoned even if one finds themselves dependent on others more than they can help.

    I think it's a false dilemma anyway.

    **** will still be the same regardless of which crony capitalist wins.

    Note I said crony capitalist, not capitalist. There's a big difference.

    Just that Romney will royally screw over middle class
    EDIT--if he follows Ryan's ridiculous "plan"

    how does that happen? by not soaking the rich he hurts the middle class?

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

    Most people on this forum either believe or accept that Romney is a liberal in conservative's clothing. But you think he's an extreme right-winger. Could you please explain why you think that?

    There is one group in the U.S. that think they are worse off right now...and they blame Obama.

    55 percent of small business owners would not start company today, blame Obama | WashingtonExaminer.com

    If Obama wins, we can expect their plight to worsen.

    He isn't saying that, he is saying that the electorate would perceive Romney as a representation of the extreme right wing, and would tarnish thier reputation. Therefore Romney does more harm than good.

    Now I would still think it is valid to ask why the electorate would assume that Romney is ultra conservative, since I assume the second he is elected he will go back to being more the way he was in the past, which is fairly moderate.

    I agree all things being equal with no new major eruption.

    Every four years you guys have to play guessing games. We don't have to guess for the next two decades.
