Is this a doorknob I see before me?

From a normal Canadian point of view, the Romney-Ryan/Gekko-Galt ticket looks like a no-brainer.  It's crazy.  Candidates are going out of their way to savage international law and trash the American Constitution.  Meanwhile Obama, the great black hope, is way ahead of the game, arrogating power normally attributed to God, any God, to strike people dead without reference to any law, principle, ethic, or common sense.

It's a tough choice.

There should be third alternative.  Unfortunately, this does not seem possible.  Ralph Nader has been running for years on a platform of  law, principle, ethics and common sense, but he is clearly way out in left field, not a Serious Person, and he can be safely ignored.  Except that he's probably right and everybody else wrong.
