Romney is too conservative on social issues.

Mcroy will probably try and fire me.

romney/ryan are too anti-liberty on select social issues. i'm not as worried on that front as they have no chance on getting legislation passed on those fronts outside of ndaa. ndaa bothers the hell out of me. foreign policy bothers the hell out of me also. since obama/biden and romney/ryan are effectively the same on those fronts, i am voting based on economic issues. if ron paul were representing, i would have almost no qualms about the guy i vote for. however, given how our window of opportunity to fix the deficit and economy is shrinking, i am voting for the turd sandwich over the giant douche.

I'm upset that I'm forced to vote for either a Republican from the 21st century or one from the 19th.


I'd say both Romney and Obama are good representations of modern-day neocons.

That's literally the only reason why they are voting for Romney. You could have a fuging Mr. Potato head as the republican candidate, and they would still vote for him. He's a pretty shitty candidate and will be a bad president, and will probably pave the way for a Hillary Clinton presidency in 2016.

Anyway, I'm not voting. NC is already going to be a Romney win. I'd vote for Obama solely because we have less of a chance to go into Iran. Both are going to suck corporate cock and our economy will decline further, but at least Obama doesn't want a literal trillion dollar war machine and another war because we have to suck AIPAC's cock.

More like no matter how shitty Romney may be, he is still an improvement over Ovama. His 4 years have been such an epic economic failure that even Mr. Potatoe Head would be an upgrade.

You use "it's funny how/when" way too liberally.

Like "it's funny how resident socialist and racist cantrell actually thinks that higher education is a fundamental right."

Not so much funny as embarrassingly illogical.


ron paul is a racist. that's obvious to anyone with any basis in reality. for reference, check out his newsletters and associates. gary johnson derived his political ideology from a bad science fiction writer's fever dream. jill stein supports "bro totally bro legalizing bro it bro", not fighting goddamned ignorant wars, repealing the patriot act, and yet for some reason her name never gets brought up alongside racist ron and randian gary. i wonder why that is

It is just a feeling.

I hear what the 'conservative' media has to say. They spew their poison 24/7 and dont even conceal their lies.


To me, it is so bad this year that it isnt even about the Left-Right paradigm, and I am instead choosing to vote against the people that I hear making up complete nonsense out of thin air, and pass it off as 'conservative news' disgusts me.

Obama is not nearly as bad as all of the pot-shots that get taken against him every minute of every day. The Fox News and Limbaugh and Hannity and all of those paid hacks just make me shake my head as I think about what is supposed to be the freedom of the press in this country. Now it is all starting to sound like divide and conquer propaganda to me.




I vote the issues, and I know that Mitt Romney will increase the Military Industrial Complex. Like Obama or not, (I think he is doing OK myself) he is the only person that stands in Mitt Romney's way of becoming the most powerful man in the world.

I was a Ron Paul man, but at the end of the day, Ron Paul was a Republican hack. That is what destroyed the chances of Gary Johnson. It is either not vote at all, or vote for Obama. I'll vote for Obama before I will say that I said or did nothing while the American public allowed the media to crown a president for them. It is pretty disturbing if you see it with a different perspective.

I wouldnt have either a few years ago... I voted Republican my whole life because of brainwashing by my parents, and also because the baby boomers today cant understand the the Republican Party has changed. It used to be about morals and economic principles... but morals have turned into 'who can hate the other side the most'... and economic principles have become a hypocracy of giving too much money to the monopolies and lobbies, and ramping up Pentagon spending. (More bullshit wars)

The Left-Right paradigm is becoming a joke, and when the rhetoric from the right is starting to sound like Goebbels era divide and conquer propaganda of misplaced fears, It makes me question their true motives.



I already know that Obama can run the country because he has already done so. He is not responsible for this economic crisis that the world is experiencing right now, even though his opponents try to sell that to the American people. The problems we are seeing today are due to a deregulated banking system that GWB unleashed that allowed the global banking elite to take horrible risks (and lose... and get bailed out...) with our economy that was already damaged by the housing collapse.

I think he went into the WhiteHouse with bought-off intentions for the elite (like all presidents do), but I think that after doing in Ghadaffi for his banker puppet-masters, I think he is having a change of heart, and is trying to fight off a very powerful lobby of people that want America to team up with Netenyahu and start WW3.

We already know that is what Mitt Romney and his surrounding cast wants, but I think that he (along with a lot of everyday Americans) are waking up to what America's foreign policy is doing to the world, and how we are alienating ourselves when we need to be setting the example of a peaceful and prosperous new millennium.
