“True Conservatives” should fear a Romney/Ryan win next month

This is an idea I derived from an article over at lewrockwell.com.  The economy is on the verge of distruction.  Obama, doubling down on the economic policies of President Bush, has driven it there.  If Romney/Ryan had any sort of a clue at all how the economy works, then getting them into office might result in some benefit.  But Romney/Ryan are as absolutely clueless about how the economy works as Obama ever was.  How can they not be, when both supported TARP?  Both men think that government spending is a necessary element to economic growth.  Plus, both Romney and Ryan are warmongers, so expect their administration to continue to waste resources that could be used productively.
The problem is, as the article above argued, that the narrative about these guys is that they are pro-free market, so that when they get into office and follow their pro-gov’t, anti-market policies which will inevitably fail, then the free market will get the blame for big-gov’t-style policies, and the need to “return” to big-gov’t-style policies will be loudly proclaimed.

Remember, a vote for Romney is a vote for Obama, since they have the same policy prescriptions for “fixing” the economy, national security, et al.  If you truly want to get back to a limited government, then vote third party.
