Let's start with the easiest one of your errors:

He wants to utilize the coal we have for energy independence... considering we're the "Saudi Arabia" of coal that makes a hell of a lot more sense to me than 0bama's "let's follow Spain's disasterous example and mandate impossible green energy milestones that will destroy our economy and are impossible to meet!"

Coal is dying because it cannot compete in the market place. It is being replaced by natural gas, of which we also as rich as Saudi Arabia. As for using a very expensive and dirty fuel just because you have a lot of it, that is what I call stupid. If Romney doesn't want the government involved in the economy, then he should stay out.

As for the Spain rant, Spain is still suffering the impacts of Bush-era lack of regulation and bad investing, combined with Romney/Ryan spending cuts.

As for the rest, show me where the Laffer Curve worked. Sorry, you want to cut revenue on the hope -- never proven before -- that it will lead to increased tax revenue, sometime. In the meantime, you either make the cuts Romney promised not to make, or you lower revenue and increase the deficit and the debt.

Unless you're a young 50-year old and believe him when he says you can lose Medicare and have a useful alternative at hand.

Of course I realize why you are not bothered by his reversals of message -- he's done it before, so he can do it again. What one can't do is believe his honest assertion that, finally, after all these years, he is telling the truth.

Unless you are like Flaylor Carlson, who said about the non-story of the 2007 Obama speech -- "It was not reported at the time, because I reported on it" Then, in the Fox/Pravda world you live in, whatever gets you ahead is what's true, facts and morals be damned.
