Dylan if those are the things (roads, police dept.'s, fire dept.'s) that decide who you'll vote for, then you should avoid voting for Obama.
Obama's already spent Trillions of dollars and has a Proven record of spending money on everything but Roads, Police Dept's. and Fire Dept's.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
