I will vote for Mr. Obama - of what is available, I believe that he is best for the nation. There are may things about his first term that have disappointed me. Amoung them are Gitmo, drone assassinations of Americans. I am not yet sure if I should be unhappy with the administration's response to any intelligence that indicated Benghazi, because I do not really have a clear idea of what they knew, when, and what responses were available to State, given the the $500 million dollar security budget cut the House GOP imposed on that Department; the budget that pays for security teams, building embassies, etc. I also do not know if I believe that Medicare for All is a much superior solution to nationalized Romneycare, but recognize that his general method of consensus building meant that to get a large thing done, he would have to start with a Republican idea and modify it to be useful. I wish we were entirely withdrawn from Afghanistan and Iraq. However, I approve of his (Keynesian) responses to the economic disaster that he inherited. Without it, the company I work for would be a corpse. I approve of his general foreign policy. I approve, and strongly, of the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. I approve, and strongly, of the choice to abandon the defense of DOMA. I approve of the subsidization of smart, green energy initiatives, even knowing that the grand majority of them will fail. There is absolutely no single larger issue in the next century than weaning our world from fossil fuels; this addresses our food, our water, our health, our security, our lifestyle. I approve of his support of reproductive freedom and choice. I approve of his support of the LGBT community; even if some of it was later in coming, and hope that it is real. I approve of raising certain taxes; though I believe that they can be better targeted. Our nation's government is in a serious income slump, rather than an expenditure spike; and the general shrinkage of the government in the form of police, firemen, teachers, over the last four years is harming our nation in general and my family in specific. I cannot approve of Mr. Johnson's economic policies. In this day and hour, they would be suicide for the nation. They betray a deep misunderstanding of the engine of the capitalist cycle, and are akin to transplanting a heart backwards; the veins of the body cannot bear to become the supply vessels, and the arteries cannot support the return of blood; in the same manner, a recession of demand cannot be met by adding capital, but must be met by adding demand. His foreign policy is also dangerously short sighted, and does not do a good job of looking out for our interests as a part of a greater community. Dr. Stein carries many good things too far, until they become bad things. For example, It is right to expect that those who profit in greater proportion from the nation, it's peoples, and its resources should return that investment in greater proportion; it is not right to impose an income cap. If the election cycle was looser, and voter intimidation was not so high in my home state, I might consider voting for her as a leftist protest vote, but that would have little effect on the actions of Mr. Obama. Wee Willy Romney, meanwhile, compounds Mr. Johnson's economic issues by being awful on social issues, awful on foreign policy and personally greedy to boot. He has stocked his personal treasury by destroying the jobs and eliminating the pensions of tens of thousands of Americans, by taking out massive loans and twisting corporate law to stick others with the bill. He has personally and directly increased the total private and public debt held in America by outsourcing production to Asia. He has already proven himself incapable of handling our allies, let alone our enemies, via his foreign tour, and has gathered about himself neoconservative advisors; even if there are other advisors, that he would even consider such disastrous policies again disqualifies him as presidential. His misgovernnance of Massachusettes proves that he is not capable of working with the Democratic party, nor capable of recognizing the return on infrastructure. He appears to see our societal safety nets and educational systems as opportunities for personal and corporate profit, rather than programs made with the intent of easing suffering, providing opportunity and fulfilling the social contract. He is dead wrong in terms of both freedom and humanity when it comes to LGBT issues, reproductive freedom, immigration, and equality of employment. He is awful for our nation, and Paul Ryan is worse.
