Romney supporters, please tell me his plans to end the debt? I am genuinely curious.Submitted by AtlantaIconoclast on Thu, 08/30/2012 - 00:48
I hear Rombama and Ryan constantly badmouthing Obama for the debt. I loathe Obama, but I really haven't heard any substantial information from either of them about how THEY would reduce or end the debt.
Ryan pointblank said that Romney's budget would not follow his recommendations, but even Ryan's budget was based on 30 years of somehow paying off the debt, based of course, on optimistic economic projections. We KNOW that both want to spend more on the Pentagon and the "War on Terror," as well as new wars on Israel's behalf (Iran, Syria). And we know Romney does not have the courage to substantially reform Medicare. Nor do we have evidence that the middle class would tolerate this.
So, please, anyone, especially those who think Rand is a genius strategizer, please explain how a Romney term will improve the "conservative" brand, which, as much as we don't like it, will be associated with the likes of Rand and even Ron Paul.
I refuse to vote for Romney, not just because he is virtually no different from Obama on the most important issues, but because I don't want the liberal establishment to be able to tar and feather true conservativism!
