I'd be interested to hear, since I think he's done quite a bit considering Health care reform, the stimulus package, Dodd-Frank, and turning around the auto industry.
Thing is, I am not a Republican, but I typically lean toward the Republican side of things, and am not really a big fan of any Health care reform, stimulus packages, or industry regulation.
I am a radical Darwinist....Sink or swim. The government should only have the power to regulate trusts and fight monopolies. And not much more. The federal government had their turn. And it didn't really work. Militarily, educationally, socially, and on the economic food chain, we are among the top countries in the world, but clearly something we are doing is wrong when our debt is so high. The system failed. The day people stopped listening to the Constitution, the system fail. I was fine with Theodore Roosevelt's, Taft's, and Wilson's regulations during the Progressive era. That magnitude of regulation was acceptable. But somewhere after that, something skewed. The fact that their are federal laws prohibiting drugs is the perfect example, because it clearly outlines in the Constitution that such powers belong to the state governments.
Before you give me some crap about "the Constitution being outdated", you need to understand that such a concept is impossible. Foremost, the founding fathers designed it as a document that would apply timelessly. The laws included are broad enough that they are actually debatable. Why else would they found the Supreme Court? Additionally, THERE IS AN AMENDMENT SECTION. Due to this section, the Constitution is still alive. It is a living, breathing document. And we are not permitted to simply ignore it. I am not saying it is flawless, but that is why we have the option to secede from the document or amend it.
However, I find it doubtful that Obama or Romney could even tell you what the first Amendment says.
One last point that people tend to forget. You are ALLOWED TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT that a president only runs for four years. If we were voting for a permanent leader to this country, I would have a drastically different opinion. We need to look at THESE next four years, and no further
