Issues aside for me the larger question is: Do we want a progressivly socilized Country, or a free market Nation where our States and their citizens direct our nation. Gov. Romney based on history please give your opinion on how America might look in say 50 years if our Government to follows its present course under President Obama's Adm.?

My wife and I both work for a small business owner who makes over 250,000 a year. If raising his taxes meant his eliminating one of our jobs, how would you explain how that helps us as middle class workers?

A divided United States Supreme Court has twice ruled by way of razor thin 5 to 4 votes that the Second Amendment “guarantee[s] the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation.” However the 4 dissenting justices in District of Columbia v. Heller stated that “self-defense . . . is not the [Second] Amendment’s concern.” If you are elected and have the occasion to nominate a Supreme Court justice, will you choose a nominee who believes that the Second Amendment is concerned with the individual right of self-defense, or one who believes that self-defense is not the Second Amendment’s concern?

I am a single mother of four children going to college, who has been fighting Wells Fargo (for nearly a year) to keep my home and I would like to know why the tax payers bailed out the big banks and they in turn, aren't being forced by our government to return the favor to us and work with us to keep Americans in their homes!!

Jose Guillen What can we do about gas prices across the board? I live in California and I'm paying $4.59 a gallon for two vehicles. $54 a week, $216 a month just for my car and for my wife's van $72 a week, $288 month! tha't a total of $504 a month. What can we do cut that cost in half or more and put that into the economy instead? Wouldn't that help the economy by us being able to buy goods to create jobs? How can we help the economy if we can't affored to buy goods, dine out etc if a good % of our take home pay is going to filling up every week? We can't go out anymore and spend because of this situation? I believe this is a great way to directly impact the economy in a positve way ASAP as to bringing down and keeping down the gas prices?
