Open Forum: What happens if Romney is elected?

Don't really understand how so many Americans can get so excited over the debates. 
Guess that tells how naive the American public is.  Remember, these people are politicians, and will stand there and say what ever they think you want to hear. 
Politicians are notorious for fabricating their version of the truth.  So far in this election year, NO one has done much in talking about the issues, to busy pointing fingers at the other person, this is NO way for supposed adults to be. 
One thing I am pretty sure of: If Romney wins, all of us poor folks will lose even more, and Amtrak will cease to exist. Remember big business and the Republican party are pretty close... 
Leo McCauley,

I to am disappointed with Obama but realize Republican obstructionism has contributed to this. My vote for him this time is basically due to my fear of what Romney/Ryan would do.

Here's a novel idea: why not make impeachment easy and immediate? As soon as an elected official deviates from his/her campaign promises, we show them the door...and you know the rest of that phrase.

Hey Leo I could not agree more with you. There is entirely too much stump talk. Neither candidate will really address any real issues. I guess it boils down who is the lessor of what I call two evils. Obama lied to us when he was elected. I do not trust Romney and Ryan. That is my take like it or not thats the way iI feel.
