In this election, the choice is clear.
Only President Obama will keep Guantanamo Bay's prisons open. Only President Obama will use lethal drones to attack targets in foreign countries. Only President Obama will suspend habeas corpus and kill Americans without due process.
Governor Romney claims that he too is pro-drone, but he also once claimed he was pro-choice. Can we really trust a man of ever-changing principles to enploy lethal force once the election is over?
Many former Obama supporters are disappointed that they haven't been detained indefinitely without trial or killed in a drone strike. But with the mid-term elections in 2010, the President's agenda was effectively blocked by House Republicans and Senators such as John McCain and Lindsey Graham. Just imagine what wouldn't happen if Republicans controlled the White House as well.
Some may choose not to vote, or to vote for a third party candidate. But if President Romney is elected and delivers on his promise of wanting peace, those people will have no one to blame except everyone else.
