The idea that the bankers and corporate chiefs don't already run our country is actually quite comical.

Of course they already run your country, the difference is to what degree? Electing Romoney is the pinnacle of Corp America having total control................good luck with that

Lots of Dom Perignon will be popping tonight if Romoney wins.

I think the more relevant distinction is that Obama believes we shoudl have a safety net for the people being leveraged by the wealthy. Romney wants to gut that, too.

Please shut up. Stop acting like you know what your talking about.

If you understood the wireless industry, you wouldn't say such idiotic things. By your logic, sprint is not competing with AT&T or Verizon.

Also AT&T and Verizon do not compete against each other. They are a duopoly. When was the last time either lowered their rates to compete with one another?

Pictures: the conservative idea of an actual argument.

I'm just calling them how I see them. I see his regulation holding back companies from hiring. I see less money being lent from banks, I see healthcare costs as a HUGE question-mark for businesses. I see businesses that aren't hiring because the have no idea what the tax code will be.

Yep, that safety net is really working out...

Did you copy and paste this from every moment in modern history? None of these things are new or specific to having a safety net for the impoverished.

If we are going to sit idly by while our entire demand base watches their income sucked into the top 1%, then we have to address their basic human needs.

How many polls of small business would you like me to cite? They all say the same thing, regulation and uncertainty with healthcare and the tax code are helping to keep them from hiring. You've posted in many thread about how Obama has very little control over the economy, yet those are things he has direct control over.

In the last 4 years, please tell me how Obama has improved the lives of the poor and middle class.

Lastly, show us where Romney said he would remove the "safety net" you speak of.

I think the ARRA was a tremendous help to people in need, as was the payroll tax cut. Holding the Bush tax cuts was also a big help.

Here are some links to a few articles outlining the different positions. One is quite old (the last one), and one is more of a budget discussion.

Its still fairly early, but when I vote this afternoon it will be for Barack Obama

I will never forgive his disrespect for Africans, but I have to live over here and view it like this.

The next president will more than likely be in charge of at least 1-2 supreme court justice appointments. This could change the landscape of this country for the coming century if we have some progressives in place to push us ahead. I dont like the idea of states allowing citizens to vote on the rights of other citizens, and progressive judges could change this relatively quickly.

I also dont want this power in the hands of a guy who believes the first people on this earth lived in Missouri that Native Americans stopped being white when they stopped following the teachings of god, and that a womans right to choose over her own body is something he can get on a moral pedestal about.

So your evidence that Romney will gut the "safety net" is that they used Rector for a campaign ad. By that standard, Obama sells drugs to children because he is friends with Jay Z.

The poor already have healthcare in Medicaid. The middle class will be forced to buy health insurance from a private company, meanwhile businesses have said that they will hire less people because of ARRA. Not helping the middle class.

I just have to laugh at the idea that democrats are the "friends of the poor." The poor are Pavlov's dog. They hear the bell, come looking for dinner, and every election wonder why they are still starving.
