    I just heard your interview with GOP nominee, Murdock. Funny how he referenced the European countries as being an example of how 'socialism' has ruined their economies.

    We here in Canada came through the recession quite unscathed (no thanks to our current prime minister). Mr. Harper has managed to squander the surplus we enjoyed under our previous "liberal" government. Being even more radical than George Bush, he believes in the Tea Party ideals.

    I the meantime, our 'socialist' policies has given us free health care for everyone for many years, as well as a decent retirement fund. These are being threatened now under right-wing ideology.

    So, our 'socialist' economy is currently one of the strongest in the world. I hope the extreme right wing here doesn't throw everything away before we have a chance to turf them out in 3 years.

    You have no idea how lucky your are in the US, that you have a man in charge who cares about people over corporations. Good luck Mr. Obama.

    I think Mr. Romney knew exactly what he was doing when he didn't respond when the lady in the audience said President Obama should be tried for treason. By not saying anything it gave the "impression" that he agreed with the woman. Even if he doesn't agree, some folks will now hear Obama-treason, Obama-treason. The Republicans want that idea planted no matter absurd it is. They will stop at nothing the defeat this President. By the way, I turned 21 in 1973 and voted republican in all local, state, and national until 2008 when I voted for Obama. Even then I voted republican in all other races. After 2010, I have vowed never to vote republican again and will be voting for President Obama in 2012. I am disgusted by what I see in the GOP of today.
