Not too long ago, I wrote a post about my dystopia-like feeling  of the next election and hinting that I had no idea who or what I would support but it is becoming clear now.   For starters, I couldn’t support McCain in the GOP in 2008 because Bush turned out to be a miserable failure with the near total collapse of the global economy under his watch.     I accepted the fact that the world needed hope and change but in all honesty, Obama has been a failure, not a miserable failure but a failure nonetheless.

This brings us to the 2012 election and after reviewing material on Romney, I cannot bring myself to support this guy.    It was bad enough he seems to flip flop on positions as easily as the wind changes direction and it bothered me that he didn’t want to release his tax returns but the final nail in the coffin for Mitt was the fact that he’s hiding money overseas.   I simply cannot bring myself to vote or support a man that is running to be the leader of the United States of America who stashes most of his money in the Cayman Islands and Luxemburg or whatever other caches he has to hide money.    The whole notion to me seems very anti-American to be hiding money in foreign countries.   This is the type of behavior I would expect from drug lords, criminal syndicates, terrorist groups, and unscrupulous corporations but not a man running for the greatest office in the world.

Unfortunately, while I can’t support Romney, this doesn’t default into a win for democrats because I view the democratic party as a miserable failure these past four years.   I can’t name anything that has been done over the last four years that’s a positive for democrats.

So what’s a personal finance blogger to do?   Well, it’s clear that since I can’t support Romney and since I can’t support Democrat candidates at the congressional level it’s going to be an even split.    I suspect if I can help keep gridlock in capitol hill, this might actually buy the economy enough time to recover on its own.
