    Our country relies greatly on our technological advantages from the battle field to everyday life. We spend over 800 billion per year on our military, but if we're not willing to develop the cutting edge, what does it matter? Obama hasn't stopped countries like China, Russia and the euro-fighter from coming within range of us within the skies. We're getting back to a period of history that is like 1910s-1940 that had many nations with technology that is closer to a match. Who is best to regain the edge for the United States? Obama or Romney?

    My opinion is to get out of the Middle East and put all that money into programs like Darpa, JPL, Nasa(or whatever secret program they have). We must keep our edge at all cost.

    China, Russia, India, Japan, Eu are all investing in space and we seem to be falling behind yet again. Seriously, how does a great power remain so when it doesn't want to push the limits and lead? No period of history of this world has a great power remained such, while completely ignoring the new advancements of the other powers.

    It's true that our schools are where it all starts and needs reforming badly. Reform within the way of favoring the students' success above all should be considered, but some will defend the teacher no matter how bad they may be. We can't keep dropping within this area in expect to produce the best technology money can buy.

    Who is the best choice for the future of our nation? :eusa_shhh: This is most important as this is between us being a superpower or an equal that has to worry about other nations kicking in our door. .

    In case you had not noticed, we won the cold war. Sorry kid, but you don't need to clutch your teaddy bear worrying about the communists invading the US anymore. Wake up anmd join us in the new millenium, we now are supposed to fear some terrorist swimming across the ocean with an AK and putting a bomb in his travel mug to hijack planes and blow up our country.

    Could one of you republicans please take your village idiot back for re-education?

    I am voting for Romney, but I think you are being silly if you think the admin is not doing the best it can in cyber warfare etc.

    Find another Grade Z movie also ran, that shows signs of senility, and he'll beat both R & O by a mile. Just make sure he has a folksy grin, some cute slogans, and very well coordinated puppet masters.

    The sad thing is, I believe they are doing their best in everything. Unfortunately their best just ain't that good. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    Well, some people need to learn some history about how "equal" powers are far more likely to go to war. The world is far less stable.

    Sure, the USSR is gone, but China is rising as a respectable power. Who's to say that there will always be peace? Sounds like someone else is the kid with little understanding of the subject. God, does everyone need to be insulting?

    I'm just talking about keeping our edge and it's a very important issue . More so than any social issue could ever be.

    Also make sure he faces down Gorbachev.

    Wins the cold war without firing a shot.

    Ushers in the greatest peace time economic growth in history.

    Makes us feel good to be Americans. THAT is the biggest difference between RR and BO.
