Since they are both basically the same (big-government, deficit-spending, globalist, war-mongering, pro-NDAA/Patriot Act, imperialist, corporate shills) who try to pretend they are different from each other, I'm wondering if it is better not to vote for Romney just because he will have 8 years to destroy the country vs. the 4 years that Obama will have. Hopefully, the GOP will pull it's head out of it's a** by then and nominate a real, small-government conservative like Rand Paul. I'm seriously thinking of voting for the Libertarian just so that Romney doesn't get my vote.

The question should be: 4 more years of Obama or 4 years of Romney? If, by some miracle Mitt is elected, he will most surely be a one-term President, just as he was a one-term Governor.

That's a good point but that means the next president would be another Democrat. The chances are almost zero of another Republican challenging him. And you know what the chances are of a fiscally conservative Democrat.

Who, you are right about Rand Paul. He is the only one who actually has a real plan for cutting the national dept but no one is listening to him. When these politician fails us we need to send them on their way. Obama said he would cut the national debt in half. He lied. Let this turkey go and try another and if he fails us we need to let him go as well. Maybe Obama appears to be a nice guy, but he is a lousy President. Four years and no budget, let him go.
