  1. I believe that if Romney wins it will let steam out of the libertarian machine that has been moving through middle america over the last 4 years. Strange as it feels to say this – I think the cause of liberty is better served, in the long and short run, if Obama gets re-elected. Romney is just awful. What I am describing here is similar to what happened to the anti-war movement after Obama was elected….It essentially disappeared. The tea party needs all the steam it can gather.
