I would ask the same question stated by Alexis de Toqueville in "Democracy In America": What does it profit me, after all, that a vigilant authority should protect the tranquility of my pleasures and constantly avert all dangers from my path, without my care or my concern, if this same authority is the absolute mistress of my liberty and of my life, and if it so monopolizes all the energy of existence that when it languishes everything languishes around it, that when it sleeps everything must sleep, that when it dies the State itself must perish? I would put this in the context of Greece and Spain in particular. I would also remind them of another quote in his book when it comes to universal health care, etc.: However enlightened and however skilful a central power may be, it cannot of itself embrace all the details of the existence of a great nation. Such vigilance exceeds the powers of man. And when it attempts to create and set in motion so many complicated springs, it must submit to a very imperfect result, or consume itself in bootless efforts.

Why does Romney keep on changing his positions during the Republican Primary to the current debates on the economy, medicare, social security, taxes for the middle class and other issues.

What specifically was different? Seems to me Romney was correcting Obama on his positions.
