In 2012, the die-hard core supporters of President Obama and Governor Romney are making their final attempt to convince the folks in the middle that the country will be better off with their brand of ideology rather than the other. Those voters in the middle who always decide presidential elections are usually lied to by both liberals and conservatives in order to move the country either further to the left or right.
It has been decades since a real moderate was elected President of the United States. Four years ago, I was convinced that Barack Obama was a real moderate. However, in the end he was just another liberal who used a slick presentation of lies to fool moderate American voters. President Bush ran as a moderate too and once he took office he ran to the far right and never returned to the middle ground he claimed to believe in during his first election.
If you took the time to watch 60 Minutes on Sunday night, you saw the entire hour devoted in equal parts to Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. Sadly, nothing really new was revealed by either man. Both campaigns are completely govern by talking points that will cost them the least and offer them the most potential of winning over moderate voters.
I have always believed that the United States would be better served as a three party nation. Recently, far right conservatism has completely controlled the GOP. While at the same time, far left liberalism dominates the democratic party. I believe there are more moderates in the United States than conservatives and liberals, but those voters just don't have a political party to call their own.
I think there is a small chance that if elected Mitt Romney will lead from a position of moderation, but who knows what he will do if he takes office? Both President Obama and Governor Romney change their positions on issues depending on who they are campaigning to that day. Right now, I know President Obama is a far left liberal. However, Mitt Romney is still a big unknown in political ideology and that makes it likely he will earn my vote in November.
