"It's the economy, stupid," is not the question, although that IS an important one.
No. The really important question is this: Why do so many REALLY, REALLY rich white guys want people to vote for Mitt Romney and/or against Barack Obama? (face it, folks, the way things are structured today, nobody else has a hope...)
I'm not an American voter so I shouldn't say more but I can't quite resist.
Maybe it's because they're such patriots. But I doubt it.
Maybe it's because they want your best. But I doubt that, too.
But think about this question for more than a few seconds before you decide how to vote, please. And don't settle for simple answers either. This is one case where Occam's razor is more likely to slit a throat than give a close shave.
