    Is this really what you wanted 4 years ago? Is this the change you wanted? I think not. I know you love this country more than that. Put that love for country at the top of your list. Forget the childish game of who wins and who loses and do what you know is best for this nation. Vote for Romney and lets get this nation moving again so we can pay for all of the stuff that you all demand. Obama and his campaign are lying and everyone knows it. Don't except that. Don't let him devide us, USA first!

    Does anyone really believe that either side can be swayed?? Heels are dug in firmly...our fate lies in the ability of each side to motivate their base to get and vote, and which one will be more effective at swaying the Independents.

    It's worth a shot...this nation needs to get a new leader. Still after 3 and a half years of Obama's presidency Americans are still dying in wars that should have been over years ago. That alone should make people rethink their choice.

    I supported Romney in 2008. Now I am supporting Obama, and I will tell you why; I don't believe more tax cuts make any sense at all. It's a math thing, you know. Cutting taxes won't increase revenue, no matter how much you tell us it will. If we want to get America headed in the right direction again, we need to get the federal government operating without massive debt every single year, and cutting spending is not the complete answer. On top of that I support the ACA legislation. It's not exactly what I wanted, but it's a step in the right direction. It is working in Massachusetts, and Romney running away from it is beyond embarrassing. The bottom line is that I think Romney would actually make things much worse; it is possible.

    So, your "question" for left leaning Americans is to tell them to vote for Romney?

    It isn't everything I wanted but on the whole; yes.

    The Democrats passed a tax cut that the GOP will not even consider in the House. For starters. A few dollars here and there isn't the reason I support Mr. Obama however.

    The next 4 years will see 3 justices on the Supreme Court turn 80+. Whomever wins this election will have a chance to appoint, likely, multiple justices. Roe would be in danger under Romney. The governor's record is that he supports big businesses. At times, these businesses have not been as careful as they should be on matters of privacy. Eventually, the Court will hear a case that speaks to what data mining can take place.

    We saw with Citizens United just how out of step with the people the court can be at times. So much so that we have one man pledging $100M in support. Thats an awlful lot of free speech. That $100M buys influence.

    Obama is a good president; not great.

    This country has always been divided. It CANNOT survive if one faction controls everything. The US has always been divided and will always be divided and SHOULD be divided. If everything was controlled by the dems we'd have spending that never stops. If the GOP controls it all then we clearly without a doubt have a plutocracy where only the ultra wealthy are looked after. Neither scenario is good for the nation. A nation divided CAN survive.

    If you truly don't want 4 more years of Obama why would you vote for Romney? There is no way Romney will be able to do anything different than Obama has done. He'll talk a big game but we all know he'll say whatever needs to be said to get elected and what he actually does is much different.

    So you say you will vote for Romney, which could be 8 years of what we just had with Obama. Prove you don't want more of the same and vote for anyone but Romney.
