Romney, no questions asked.

And I am not just saying that because I'm voting for Mitt. Mitt has the strongest plan and the most experience in the economy.

Ron Paul. Being a self made millionaire doesn't make you an expert on economic policy. Ron Paul has over 30 years of experience handling economic affairs. He's written books and helped pass legislation. He is the only candidate that has stood up to Ben Barnanke (sp?) and the fed when they mess up. I would trust him to successfully cut wasteful spending, lower taxes, and reallocate washingtons resources...all which would help economic growth.

Paul is the only one with a solid understanding of economics and the only one who would make any real changes to the economic structure of the US, everyone else is pretty much the same.

Romney is a business legend...

Also, look at what he did in MA and their deficit!

As I pointed out before and as you failed to address, making an efficient business is much different than making an efficient government/bureaucracy.

And as far as eliminating MA's deficit he do so through fee hikes and the closing of tax exemptions, which is essentially raising taxes. Additionally, a surge in capital gain taxes reduced the deficit to $1.3 billion.

So Romney's accomplishment really isn't as grand as he makes it seem.

Additionally during Romney's administration Massachusetts's labor market was under performing.

Frankly, for someone using this as the crux of their campaign, I'm not impressed.

Someone should make one of these poll threads, but leave out Ron Paul just so see how much flaming/arguments occur.

Way, to ignore my factual evidence and insult my support of Ron Paul, which isn't even that strong. He's simply the only candidate that will have a significant effect on the economy in my opinion, as he is the only candidate with economic policies that have yet to be seen in Washington.

Romney isn't going to make any substantial changes, because he didn't make any in MA.

But you can go on smelling Romeny's potpourri farts if you please.

(Notice how bad jokes aren't funny and make you look like a *******)

That's Legacy for ya', always making ******* jokes and acting like a grade school kid in a pissing contest.

Anyways, I voted for Ron Paul. I may not follow his 'sound money' policy, but he sure does know what he's talking about 99% of the time when it comes to Economics.

His plan to take away incentive for welfare, alone, is something that many people should be eyeing him for. He doesn't want to put up a ****ing 10,000 mile long fence around our border, he wants to secure our ports, get rid of all incentive for illegals, and reverse the welfare state we have become. That, of all the 'economic plans' any other candidates, is alone the best.

QFT. Kill the host and the parasite will die. RP is the best when it comes to economic understanding.

If you can't come up with a logical response to a logical post, admit it or dont respond at all.

If you consider being a ******* 'pretty well', then yes, you're right. Otherwise, you're one of the 'regulars' who can't debate without turning the topic into a 5th grade pissing contest. Congrats.

Your still failing to point why Romney will be a boon on the economy, especially in face of my criticism.

I wouldn't say you are doing very well at all.

Meh I hope Paul wins and then I live for the next two centuries to watch us slowly turn back into a welfare state...

What are the odds of either happening though....

I think there are better answers personally, and for sure smarter people on Earth. To bad they don't show up.

Anyone who's not a democrat.

It's honestly the main reason I'd consider myself a Republican. I'll vote for whoever can keep us further away from socialism.

Many Republicans are basically corporate socialists.
