As Glenn Reynolds, the Instapundit noted (or rather found in the comments of another blog), for many people this is the "ground glass election":
"Romney was not my first, second, or third choice, but I will crawl over ground glass to vote for him."Why? An Illustrated Election Guide.
#1 We are running unprecedented, and unsustainable deficits.Obama has made only the slightest effort to control the deficits after promising to halve them during his term (not nearly enough IMO).
#2 High levels of spending, and not a dearth of revenue is largely responsible for the deficits. No plausible amount of taxation could possibly close the gap.
#3 The current administration has proven themselves unable to engineer an economy to provide jobs for the future, and have, again in my opinion, have actively pursued policies that inhibit the growth of jobs.
#4 The current administration has pursued a populist, destroy the rich policy, which I believe is detrimental to economic growth, while at the same time following a policy of rewarding wealthy friends.
#5 The President's foreign policy had been feckless as well, apologetic to those who don't deserve apologies, and projecting weakness in a world where weakness is an invitation for someone to take advantage of you.
I can go on, but that should be sufficient:
