    A bigger or smaller government?


    Now  that it is all but settled that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt  Romney will be the Republican nominee facing off against President  Barack Obama during the fall general election, American voters must now  make a decision about which road they want the nation to travel for the  next four years.

    The choice of roads is:

    1.  Do American voters want to continue the current road with increasing  involvement of the federal government in the lives of the American  people?

    2.  Do American voters want less federal government involvement with more  of the decisions being left to the individuals and local/state  governments?

    The answer to these two questions is predicated on 4 primary issues as we approach the November vote:

    1.  The Economy - including the unsustainable national debt, an atmosphere  more conducive to expansion of business and job creation.

    2. Healthcare - fixing what is wrong and keeping what is right.

    3.  Energy Policy - becoming less dependent on outside forces and more  reliant upon ourselves to meet and provide our energy needs.

    4.  Tax Reform - a complete overhaul of the system, throwing out deductions  that are not beneficial and keeping only those which provide for the  greater good.

    All  four of these issues are inter-related and must be tackled with common  sense, logic and realism. I plan to delve into each issue separately  with my thoughs and opinions in subsequent reports.

    Each  of these 4 issues are what American's must explore. American voters  need to study the positions of both the Democrats and Republicans on  these 4 issues as they decide the direction of the nation.

    From the Cornfield, that's what I see is the number 1 question American voters must answer.
