I suppose comparisons between salaries in public and private sectors depend on skill level... Maybe government salaries flatten out more as you go up. As far as I understand in strictly utilitarian terms at a certain level the choice becomes public service with good job security and less pay vs. private sector with not-so-good job security and more pay.
Maybe the biggest issue in this election is the Supreme Court, and from that perspective getting a Democrat in there is very important if we ever want to do campaign finance reform or start getting rid of the corporate person-hood business.
There are many things I disagree with Obama on, but I do not buy the narrative about Obama being the "government is the solution" type. It is a standard simplistic smear that does not work for me as a replacement for actual points.

Anyone else see the "Mitt saved my daughter" ad?
I applaud the guy for that. Not a reason to vote for him for President, but I do applaud him for it.
Risk lives is your criteria? Maybe we should mandate curfews to stop late night crimes. Maybe everyone should have to check in with the federal government via fingerprint everyday around 6pm. Obviously this is hyperbole on my part but the point is that the line between government overreach in the name of fighting terrorism isn't so clear. What fixes are you advocating that would protect liberties?
I remember one where he's being praised by some guy who owns a house on the same private lake where Romney owns a house, and he was bringing his boat up to the public dock at the clubhouse on the lake, and Romney helped him tie the boat to the dock.
(No, I'm not making that up. Somebody actually posted that, here.)
Romney's Last Path to 270 Electoral Votes
Romney officials tell National Review that the campaign "is focused on two key states as Election Day nears: Ohio and Pennsylvania. They believe that they are competitive in Ohio, but should it drift away, they're looking at Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes as a possible substitute for the Buckeye State."
Said a Romney adviser: "We have got to win one of those two states and do well everywhere else. We're still pushing in Ohio, but it's unpredictable. Pennsylvania, however, is really in play."
Romney's final-day schedule -- he will campaign in Pittsburgh and Cleveland.-- reflects his strategy.
lol. Who the hell told him that PA is in play? It won't even be close in PA.
That is so egregiously short on facts and logic, it is no different than Michelle Malkin running a piece saying the Attorney General and all of DoJ report to the President, therefore President Obama is personally responsible and should be charged with murder because a Border Patrol agent died in a DoJ operation.

Haha, Romney in the MNF speech just said that he takes credit for the New England Patriots 2 Super Bowl wins
Maybe he meant the losses because they won 3.
