Re: 2012 Election: Romney VS Obama Thread
I agree, which is why I said it was one of many reasons. I didnt vote for W. because he isnt a president so much as he was a puppet for Cheney et al. He was terrible, and an oil whore without question.
And I agree with Obama's energy policies FAR more than those of Mitt. Every time I hear the words "clean" and "coal" together I cringe. And Im not looking to drill AK, or offshore in CA.
Those are distressing, but I find Obamacare downright frightening. Same with his almost doubling of the national debt seemingly overnight. Im watching my State meltdown pretty much non stop going through a financial budget crisis similar to what we ARE facing federally, but compared to what we WILL be facing, its staggering. I'm legitimately scared for my kid and his generation.
I am very much not a fan of his ideas on gun control, either. Its silly, and by his OWN admission, guns are not the problem, its education and lack of parenting. And lets be honest, people that are going to go out and commit a crime dont buy guns legally to do it. And spare me the shit about aurora, etc. The fast and furious scandal was responsible for easily as many deaths and then some, and we GAVE them the guns. When your government supplies a weapon that is used by drug cartels to kill a border agent, then turns around and tells you about gun control, there is a problem. Unless you're not worried about honesty, then I guess there isnt a problem.
