Obama's increased domestic oil drilling, but on top of that he's supporting green energy. The oil drilling is going to be a temporary solution under him. Romney wants to decrease the green energy idea and just go for drilling. So yes, in the short term, you'd vote for Romney there. But in the long-term, no matter who is elected President for the next four years, your family has to find another job, because the world is turning to clean energy faster and faster. Oil dependency is decreasing.
I love how you like Romney's tax plan when it makes no sense. He said he'll lower tax rates for the middle class, but also lower deductibles. In essence, he's really lowering nothing. He also said one of these deductibles will be the capital gains tax, which will be removed entirely. If you don't know what capital gains is, it's when you earn money from the stock market and you pay taxes on that money you take out. But do middle-class people spend and take so much every day in the stock market? Hell no, only the rich do that. tl;dr Romney favors the rich and taxes will pretty much not be affected.
If you hate Obama's healthcare plan, then you hate what Romney did as governor in Massachusetts. He enacted the same exact thing that Obama enacted, just on a state level: everyone in Massachusetts has to get healthcare, otherwise their taxes will increase so they can get healthcare from the government. Sound familiar? Plus, what pisses me off about Romney's health-care idea is that he wants to scrap what Medicare and Medicaid do for future seniors (not for our parents, but for you and me, Firestar, who will be entering the job market very soon), and instead, when we become 65, we'll get a "voucher system," where we get a check for some amount of money and we're told "Knock yourselves out." No more money per month, just one voucher that might not last us even a few months with healthcare.
tl;dr Romney is a piece of crap. I can't wait to see what his foreign policy is during the next Presidential debate, because he's a businessman and he hasn't said a single thing about foreign policy.
EDIT: Just found this. Thought it was pretty funny xD http://onslaughtsix....28/vukizzle-wow
You're telling me what I said myself - I don't like either of them and Romney is better for me short term. I get you have something against him, but I know exactly what I'm supporting.
My family also falls into that bracket of being favored.
