Alright, conservatives here's your chance. I will admit that I lean toward the liberal side, but I am interested in hearing what Romney can do to improve this country. But here is the rule: you cannot mention Obama. I don't want to hear "He will be better than Obama" or "Obama sucks." No, what will Romney do to improve this country? And no vague stuff either. How EXACTLY will his planned policies change what the country is going through right now?

Yeah, that is pretty pathetic. And now that you mention it, I don't think I've heard any of Romney's policies articulated anywhere else here either!!

Mitt Romney Speech Lays Out Economic Plan that Values "Opportunity" over "Entitlement"

"First, I will make an across-the-board, 20% reduction in marginal individual income tax rates.
Second, I will reduce the corporate tax rate to 25% from 35%, transition from a world-wide taxation system to a territorial one, and make the R&D tax credit permanent.

Third, I will promote savings and investment by maintaining the low 15% rate on capital gains, interest and qualified dividends, and eliminate the tax entirely for those with annual income below $200,000.

Fourth, I will take long overdue steps to correct failures in the tax code. I will abolish the death tax.

Fifth, I will bring stability to the tax code by making these changes permanent. One recent study estimated that simply returning policy certainty to pre-Obama levels could create 2.5 million jobs in less than two years."
