Of course this kind of law enforcement will end if Romney gets elected. He is not a member of the middle class, and does not have a clue about how real Americans live.
Romney has had e erything given to him his whole life. He has always been privileged and protected from reality. His approach to the deficit is to,just cut everything to fix it, even if it is a necessity. He will always have everything he needs and wants regardless.

People can be critical of more than one person or party.
The bigger issue is that we've had a predatory economic environment for far too long, brought to up by the GOP worldview that comes with supplyside economics, and that actually hurts most businesses -- at least the ones that rely on lots of people having disposable income, as opposed to a few buying luxury goods. I think that's why the former CEO at Costco was speaking for Obama at the convention.

Obama supporter: I am critical of both, and mistrustful of both, but for reasons unique to each. The only thing the two candidates have in common ( my opinion), is that they both seem to be from outer space. I think we are in for trouble no matter who is elected. Romney is an elitist, and from what I have been told by people who have worked with him on education and technology issues, Obama really isn't that bright or informed, but he is a smooth talker.
So really, the country is between the devil and the deep blue sea. All we can do is chose the lesser of the two evils, who I think is Obama. But that gives me no comfort. Married to an economist as I am, I am aware of thing the vast majority of people are not.

I understand Dennis' quest for retirement as listening to complaints day after day after day can be quite annoying. I hope he is enjoying his retirement! ( I worked for the County of Santa Clara's Social Services and can vouch of the horrendous work loads...very tedious work also.)Finding a dedicated person who knows the ropes and quest for action may be difficult. Someone needs to step up to the plate and ask for reinstatement of his job slot.......Takers??? Hopefully!!!!!
