2. Government is supposed to protect people from the likes of Romney

Unfortunately, the Republican party was infiltrated long ago with robber barons, the military industrial complex, and theocratics, that threaten our liberty and happiness. Romney would move us backwards in all those regards.

5. Because the President is the Chief Executive Officer

of the United States.

The President of the United States of America is the head of state and head of government of the United States. The president leads the executive branch of the federal government and is the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces.

Article II of the U.S. Constitution vests the executive power of the United States in the president and charges him with the execution of federal law, alongside the responsibility of appointing federal executive, diplomatic, regulatory, and judicial officers, and concluding treaties with foreign powers, with the advice and consent of the Senate. The president is further empowered to grant federal pardons and reprieves, and to convene and adjourn either or both houses of Congress under extraordinary circumstances.
