    The scary thing is that the pressure on the left is real, and has happened by written email in a bunch of Republican-controlled companies. Apparently conservatives don’t trust democracy. The one on the right is conservative fantasy, of course.

    There’s more if you need it, but this should make my point.
    This is not the way George Washington and the rest wanted this to happen.
    We can do better.

    Another CEO of a Michigan processed foods company who received $5.5 million in stimulus aid and saw his company expand by 250 employees has called on his employees to vote for Romney. Nice.

    IANAL but in my opinion these letters to employees can be construed as illegal campaign contributions. Hope the FEC gets these guys…

    Mr. Obama’s economic record has been about as bad as it could possibly be. In his first budget proposal, he promised the economy would be growing at a brisk 6.3 percent by 2012. Instead, it’s limping along at just over 1 percent. He promised that the federal deficit would be carved down to $581 billion. Instead, it has ballooned beyond $1 trillion. In 2009, he promised that if his budget-busting stimulus plan were passed, unemployment would be around 5.5 percent by now. Instead, the official rate is nearly 8 percent. Poverty has increased; the number of long-term unemployed has increased; there are millions more discouraged workers; food stamp use has surged; gas prices are up and family incomes are down. A second term would be no different.

    Again, the question no one is willing to answer: How will things be better with Mitt Romney in the White House?

    @I Play One On TV

    It was never answered by the Obama Admin either when we voted him in on Hope & Change. I actually saw less transparency under his Administration than in the past. That was one of my biggest hopes from him getting in along with uniting the country instead of polarizing it. It comes down to, do we need to try someone different again or not? I know people will try to say we will fall back to the ways of Bush, but we didn’t even fall back to the ways of Clinton Admin under Obama and there is no other choice from the Democrats. So here we are, the same for four more years with possibility of forcing things through because of no recourse of him going for re-election. Romney is what we have because there is not enough people to vote in a third party President.

    Yes, the solutions are not really hard to understand, they are just not wanted by the parties in charge.

    Income and payroll taxes fund government programs, therefore it’s in everyone’s interest for business owners to raise workers’ wages. A Good Cartoon.
