Mitt's Plan for China & East Asia via @MittRomney

Mitt's Plan for China & East Asia via @MittRomney | Peter's Political Debate | Scoop.it

In the case of relations with China, no man can be as moronic as Mitt Romney. His polocies over things like providing smaller nations in Asia with more advanced military equipment, increasing military presance/capabilities in the region and outright aposing China in its domestic affairs can and most probably will be taken as a sign of disrespect and hostility by China. China, the country who has a military equal to the United States's popluation, and this man wants to poke it with a stick. There is a reason why the Obama administration tries to distance itself from China, it's so we dont piss them off. Because god forbid we do, it would be a bloodbath. China is like a hornets nest, Obama is doing the right thing in trying to avoid it as much as posible, but Romney. Romney wants to hit it with a baseball bat because he thinks its a piniata and will give him candy when he is done beeting it. It's just not how things will work, and it will end in tragity.

Today, our immigration system is broken. Learn Mitt's plan to fix it: via @MittRomney

Today, our immigration system is broken. Learn Mitt's plan to fix it: via @MittRomney | Peter's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Romney yet again shows his ignorance in his immigration polocies. His plan is to install a new high-tech fence to enhance the border security. He then wants to set up laws mandating that employers thoroughly check that the people they are about to hire is legally in the United States. And finally he wants to push that  This sounds all fine and good until we think about this a litte deeper. The whole reason why businesses (expecially those in the algeracultural feild) hire illeagle's to do their work is to get around things like minimum wage and workers comp in order to maximize profits for expansion, all the wile keeping the products price's from rising to a substancial number. Then at the same time as letting less people in, only really letting the more educated get visa's only adds to the problem because as we all know, more education (for the most part) requires more pay for their work. With Obama's plan, we are letting those who are already here under the age of thirty gain the right to stay with our education we have already provided them. By doing this we are letting the more educated who are already here stay and at the same time not restricting the lower workers from entering America. It's cheaper to enforce, it's much easier to manage and it just makes more sense.

Candidates - 2012 Election Center - Elections & Politics from CNN.com | Peter's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Neither candidate seams to know what they are doing when it comes to the economy. Romney wants to put a cap on federal spending (and cut it) and not expand the dept ceiling. The problem with this is that by capping federal spending and not raising taxes to bring more money in to slow/stop the rising dept we will simply default. Yes he may want to cut federal spending too, but again, America isn't pulling nearly enough money, even with spending cuts to cover the cost of war and internal affairs. Then Oboma just wants a few more years for his stimulous to kick in and raise the dept ceiling as a saftey so America doesn't default at the same time raising taxes to bring more money in to pay everything off. In my eyes, neither salution will work on their own, but a combination of raising the dept ceiling, raising taxes and cutting unnessisary spending such as Obama care will work the most effectivly.

Should the death penalty remain a legal option in America? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Both Romney and Oboma believe that the death penalty should remain a legal option in America. In my opinion neither candinate is correct on this stance. I believe that we should be past the point in history that such a barbaric and unexcusable punishment could be delt out. "An eye for an eye makes the whole world go blind" -Gandhi

Obama and Romney Unite on Destructive Bioenergy Policy [The Biomass Monitor] | Energy Justice Network | Peter's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Obama's energy plan is to invest money into clean energy such as solar in order to, in the long run, make America self-sufficiant in the longrun. Romney's plan is to make America self-sufficiant in the short-term by "reforming" laws that protect places like national forests from being mined for things like coal and oil.

Are more federal regulations on guns and ammunition needed? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Are more federal regulations on guns and ammunition needed? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Peter's Political Debate | Scoop.it

I agree with Presiden Barack Obama's policy when it comes to federal regulation on guns and ammunition. We do need more laws to protect us from those with ill-will from getting thier hands on firearms. Simply ignoring the fact that the sale of firearms to the mentally unstable or the criminal because it will restrict gun ownership for the law obiding is not a relevent or tolerable excuse.

In place of #Obamacare, Mitt will pursue reform and improve #Healthcare for all: via @MittRomney

In place of #Obamacare, Mitt will pursue reform and improve #Healthcare for all: via @MittRomney | Peter's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Another point of weakness in Romney's policies is his policy on health care. He intends on repealing Obamacare as soon as possible. Which admitedly, in of itself would not be an inherently bad thing, but it's what he intends to replace it with is far worse. He intends on bringing us back to the progressive era standings in goverment involvement in business. He intends on letting healthcare providers to make their own rules, including and not limited to dropping patients that have become "too ill" and refusing service to those who need it most, the less fortunate and those with pre-existing conditions. On the other hand Obama's system lets the people benifite from the service of healthcare by making it more open. Restricting what the insurance companies can do to limit their service and charging obsene amounts for protection.

President Obama's Record on Education

President Obama's Record on Education | Peter's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Another topic where Obama runs Romney into the dirt is Education. Romney firmly believes in the fact that smaller classrooms do not affect the quality of education a person may recieve. He thinks that a more personal one on one type of teaching style does not benifite neither the student nor the teacher in any way. I personally know this not to be true, mainly due to my being in classrooms ranging in size from five people to almost thirty. The size of the room matters. Being to big such as thirty plus does not let the teacher help those who are on the fence. They can help the kids who are absolutely having problems, and they know who are getting the straight A's are plenty good in themselves. But the people who are the average students are almost ignored. Then in classrooms too small such as seven and under, the quality of the teaching deminishes due to the fact that this often times leads to more lax rules in the classroom and lets more distractions come in. Obama on the other hand is trying to reduce the size of the larger classrooms in order to help the average students more and let those who need help get it more easily. Then to enforce this he plans on raising national standards in the hope that new and more effective teaching styles will come up in result and benifite all around.

Should gay marriage be legal? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Peter's Political Debate | Scoop.it

I believe in the legalization of same-sex maraige. Obama over the years has flippflopped between pro and con on the subject, but recently settled on pro same-sex maraige. I often wonder if he just says this in order to appeal to a larger group of people in the elections. Romney is firmly no even saying it should be in the constitution that maraige can only be between a man and woman.

Should the federal deficit be reduced without raising any taxes? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should the federal deficit be reduced without raising any taxes? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Peter's Political Debate | Scoop.it

I Personally agree with President Obama with the idea of rasing taxes to reduce the federal deficit. Simply cutting spending like Romney suggests will only even further limit the few benifits we have such as social security while very slowly reduce the deficite. (You can cut all the spending you want, but if you simply dont have the money to make ends meat, it wont solve the problem)

Candidates’ Positions on Labor Wages & Unions Issues

Candidates’ Positions on Labor Wages & Unions Issues | Peter's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Romney is very anti-labor unions. He believes that it is because of unions that job growth is such a slow process due to all their regulations and the laws passed supporting them. Obama wants to to make it easier for unions to organize. He firmly believes that Unions protect the every day worker.
