    Depends on what "better off" is.

    To quote myself:

    No matter which one is elected, the spending spree will continue, only some beneficiaries will change.

    For some people, one or the other will be better. For most of us, it won''t make a bit of difference.

    I selected Romney, but I have a big caveat:

    Romney needs a Republican House and Senate or all bets are off.

    Obama, of course, will screw us over either way. He's already proven that.

    **** will still be the same regardless of which liberals wins.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Same rhetoric..no facts to back it up
    My personal thoughts...both will have similar result
    Just that Romney will royally screw over middle class
    EDIT--if he follows Ryan's ridiculous "plan"

    My guess is that Romney/Ryan would be better for the health and economic stability of the country.

    And Obama would/will make a lot more individuals happy.

    if you re looking to vote for someone who is going to make you life better... you might want to think about voting for yourself... you're the only one that can make it actually happen.

    if you are depending on a president to do it for you, you'll not be better off in 4 years... you'll never be better off.

    Of course, this gets to the crux of the whole question.

    Someone who is “depending on a president to do it for you” is going to vote for Obama; as he very solidly represents that mindset. Not that government can or will make anyone's lives better, but those who think it can, will and should, are going to see Obama as the President to make that happen.

    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.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
