This election and the differing principles posted by the nominees stances on the critical issues of the day, has the makings for a pivotal election unlike any we have seen in our life time. Reagan-Carter comes the closests...but Carter, as hrrific and atrocious as he was, was nothing compared to Obama.

"Sorry, Barrack Hussein Obama...it is not going to work. The American people are awake, and when it comes to America, her prosperity, her liberty, and her goodnes and greatness...with the help and grace of God, and without any thanks whatsoever to you and your ilk's absolutely failed policies, we know that when this thing is turned around, we will be able to bow our heads, and thank God and know, that with His help...YES WE DID BUILD THAT!"

From your lips to God's ears...amen!

These actions will create, in relative short order, a massive turn around in America's economic situation producing a literal hiring bonanza. Suc a turnaround will probably start with the enrgy sector, but extending from there. As with Reagan, the difference will be so marked as to lead to a complete laandslide election in 2016 as Americans vote for their own prosperity and freedoms which will so amply be on display at the end of the first four years of a Romney/Ryan administration.

Not so fast...

I spoke with a commerical banker and via Dodd-Frank they are scared of writing loans because they do not know if they will violate regulations that haven't been written. So does it repealed ASAP? One would hope...

In another conversation with a noted American that I cannot name, we discussed "the turnaround". Again it may take time was their answer (and not investment advice here) those in on the front of it might do rather well if they are willing to take the risk.

Obama and company have so FUBAR'd so many sectors of the economy and the way even goverment operates, I am skeptical of a massive turnaround on a dime, and I don't think we should get peoples hopes up only to have them dashed and hammer Romney/Ryan in the mid-terms.

I am not skeptical of "Capital" going off strike after 1/21/2012 however....

It is curious to see John Huntsman on that list, since he is one of the featured speakers at the Democratic Convention this year.

Jeff, this race is much more like 1940 ~ Roosevelt vs. Willkie ~ than any seen since.

The key to winning, as always, is to get your party base to TURN OUT TO VOTE for you. If you can do that you will almost always beat the other guy.

If you can't, you lose.

So, is there some reason Republicans should vote for a Democrat that we don't know about? Must be a secret here.

We need the Kenyan gone. He is a disaster. That said, Mitts record does not give me any warm fuzzies.

This election is going to be a test for all of us. On the one hand, no one here can really abide Romney, and many are tired of having to accept the squishy establishment Republican as “the least worst” option. If enough of the base take this view, then Obama and those holding his puppet strings will indeed take the opportunity to dismantle the last remnants of the old republic. And then our choices will be much less appealing than they are now.

Further, stopping Obama is merely in the “necessary but insufficient” category. Even in ousting this administration is simply buying a bit of time to begin the real work of restoring liberty and prosperity and the rule of law. That’s a daunting task, and worse, it’s not really all that exciting or fun; it’s just hard work. But we retain powerful, resilient structures and cultural requirments for liberty to prevail; this can be done, the only question is if we have the willingness to act.

Libertarians and conservatives have focused for too long on their differences, and it’s time to put that aside for brief truce. We agree on limited government, the fundamental right to arms, the oppressive over-reach of seventy years of commerce clause lawlessness, economic liberty, personal responsibility, the list goes on and on. One hopes that we can stop the slide, and that we’ll have a Republic to squabble over in the coming four years.

Romney/Ryan will...eliminate unnecessary and burdensome federal waste and programs (like ObamaCare), cut Federal Spending and Programs,

Will believe when seen. Lots of standard political promises in the list.

"Repeal & Replace" is not eliminating ObamaCare and I believe this is a sign I've seen Romney campaign behind.

Two words - Senate and filibuster. The Democrats are going to spend the next four years doing what the Republicans have spent the last four years doing - ensuring that the guy in the White House is a one-termer. Romney/Ryan will have a hard time accomplishing much of what you’re hoping for.

Well done, Jeff.

It pains me to think that this could actually be a close election. You have to wonder what people are thinking.

This election, to me, is a mix of 1860 and 1980.

Both elections have tremendous ramifications about the future. In 1980, it was rebuilding America and fighting Communism. Thanks to Reagan, we had a propsperous economy, a rebuilt military, we conquered the Soviet Union without firing a shot, and over 500 million in Eastern Europe and the Soviet republics found freedom.

In 1860, the choice of President foreshadowed a Civil War.
The country was so divided, that people were willing to take up arms against each other. It feels like it again. The bounds of social order that bind us seemed to be pulled unto the breaking point. It is a scary time.

I can only do two things. Pray, and act. Pray for my country, for God’s grace upon it, and act by voting the Communist scum out of the White House, and get others to do so as well.

Then, even if I am not successful, I can look my posterity in the eye, and say, I did my best.

” - - - What a contrast between these two visions of America! “

Lemme see now, the counter-culture one is: “If you have a business, that - - - . You didn’t build that! Somebody else made that happen.”

The Mainstream American Dream is: “If I build it customers will come, in spite of the damned US Federal Government!”
