What socialism? Obamacare isn't socialism. It is conservative health care plan that leverages private industry.
Why I am not voting for Romney (and my vote is more of one against him than for Obama?
He is a repeat of Bush on the economy (tax cuts and no regulation). Maybe it was just bad timing that the economy cratered in 2008 but I am not willing to risk it
He is also a guy that looks to europe and says austerity during a period of poor growth is a great idea.
And then turn around and says we need to spend more on the military for pretty much no reason. Yeah that is going to do wonders for out budget deficit
He is going to waste 710 billion that both Obama and Ryan (hey both parties agreed.) thought could be saved. Thats a lot of money
The uncertainty. I have a feeling Mitt's believes are close to my own if you go by his actions in Mass. But he has run away from all of those. Is that because of a change of heart or because of political expediency? Can he repeal Obama care? Is his tax plan serious or just an pandering attempt to gain votes? Will he really run up the deficit by doing it? And so on.
The ethics. I have yet to hear a decent reason why the 2009 tax returns have not been released. Other than taking the Swiss bank account amnesty, I have not heard of a reasonable explanation.
And finally business people have been poor presidents in the past. The skill sets don't match up very well.
My only real reason for voting for Obama is that he has made me a ton of money. Look how much your s&P 500 funds have gone up between 2000-2008 and 2008-2012. I like having a president that is good for business rather than one that SAYS they are. Call me results oriented.

America doesn't swing that way. At least she shouldn't......
