    This is just more propaganda by the libertards.

    Romney has been VERY CLEAR. He will cut taxes by $5 trillion, increase defense spending by $2.1 trillion and erase the national debt by cutting the $455 trillion we spend on PBS.

    have any of you actually tried to look yourself ?

    Suggested this, and then went to the actual Romney camp website. He does have a tax plan, a VERY unimpressive tax plan.

    In fairness to Romney if you follow the actual link to the Obama camp`s website it "exposes" the flaws in Romney`s tax plan by treating tax cuts as expenditures.

    Here`s article that explains problems I have with this reasoning

    @NerdRage: Obeying Obama is @madest`s life-goal!

    After all: Obama`s promise to "cut the deficit in HALF" has worked out so well! Let`s give him another 4 years of $Trillion$ +++ deficits!

    "i`m so sick of the bashing on romney, have any of you actually tried to look yourself ?"

    YES

    Yes I have. The only real numbers I can find are raise defense spending, cut taxes, cut planned parenthood, obamacare, and PBS.

    Here is the thing, Romney is running 98% on unemployment and the debt. He should be boasting the plan hard. We shouldn`t have to go LOOKING for it. However, he isn`t. If he isn`t there has to be a reason for it.

    Actually they are going to save PBS too! It really isn`t hard for them to do. They are going to start buying store brand cookies instead of name brand for cookie monster. That`s at least half their budget right there.

    Oh please.... you could find dozens of issues and put Obama in there instead of Romney. There`s a very clear plan on Romney`s web site if you you would bother to look, but you won`t because you are blinded by your own hatred.

    As bad as Obamanation is, you`d have to have some deep seated
    desire for punishment to vote for Romney.

    I agree with Gary Johnson 96% of the time.
    Obama: 6%

    It`s not a zero sum game, people. It`s simple. It`s called the Laffer Curve. Look it up. It works every time.

    On the other hand, do you want 5 trillion more debt and more double-digit unemployment with gas at $10/gallon? If Obama is elected, we have 18-24 months, tops, before total economic collapse. Hyperinflation, 25%+ unemployment, riots, martial law, complete government collapse and possible civil war. You like self punishment, Gerry? Go ahead and vote for THAT!

    BUT @HG: Obama IS THE FIRST to ring up 6 TRILLION IN DEBT in just 4 years! Or 8 years, or EVER!
    Admit it, this is true! You can "split hairs" and try to claim "ONLY 5 TRILLION" but it`s still #1!
    Obama is #1! (In fail!)

    Obama`s not so bad.
    @madest:
    Hitler`s not so bad...
    Stalin`s not so bad...
    Pol Pot`s not so bad...

    Hey! This is EASY! No wonder people become libtards, it requires NO thinking at all!

    I`d worry about hyperinflation, except that we would presently be in a DEFLATIONARY meltdown if it weren`t for the US Federal Reserve (and other national banks) doing everything short of giving away cash to prevent it.

    As for Laffer curves, keep in mind that the current US tax rate is the lowest in history, and almost certainly well below the theoretical optimum rate for revenue production.

    Except taxes were higher post-FDR admins and the govt did not have increased revenues. Moving right along.

    except that we would presently be in a DEFLATIONARY meltdown if it weren`t for the US Federal Reserve (and other national banks) doing everything short of giving away cash to prevent it.

    We`re hardly at risk for that.
