Va. Escapes Worst Of Recession But New Fears Ahead

"The defense industry â¿¿ if it doesn't collapse in the next six months, it's going to take a big turn for the worse," he says." It's scary not knowing who the next president is going to be. But I don't think it really matters. We're going to be in a downward spiral the next four years."

Garcia says he's "a Democrat at heart," but is disappointed in the president, saying he believed in the "hype" about Obama in 2008 that "this was going to be something different. It wasn't. It's like getting on a roller coaster ride and it's not all that exciting when it's done. It's a dud."

He's still an undecided voter, unsure if Obama should have more time or Romney has the right ideas.

"It's all about who's going to make the difference," he adds. "That's the hard part. I don't know."
