    ...if you support the Chicago corporatist known as Barak Obama you are not a liberal, you are just a Democrat that will support whatever bag of shit they send you.

    At least the Paul people have the balls to support a losing candidate that truly endorses their beliefs.

    Just sayin' - fair is fair.

    Just like conservatives vote against their own self interests, so do liberals.

    When you look at everything liberals CLAIM to want, you wonder why they don't support Kucinich more. He's a REAL liberal.

    No one gets to vote for exactly who they want for president, it's always choice between two Neo-Cons, it's the only choice we will ever be allowed to have.

    I think you're having a hard time with the word "support" here.

    I don't "support" Obama, and I never have - but if I was going to vote in the Presidential election this year (I'm not), I'd probably vote for Obama over Romney.

    Just like all the "Conservatives" who have spent the last year bashing Mitt Romney are all going to vote for him.

    Well, if you're willing to settle for what you're "allowed"...

    Millions of us voted for Ron Paul this year, despite what we were "allowed".

    When you have a candidate on the left that you actually LIKE, give it a shot, it feels fucking great.

    Well, Kucinich did sell them out in the end. Still wonder what Obama said to him on the plane ride. I suspect Paul will be under similar pressure in the next few months. We'll see how he holds up.

    You folks don't even count, this election.

    As with conservatives voting for Romney, liberals vote for Obama in the hope that actual liberal administrators are placed in positions of influence and power. Consequently, Obama doesn’t need to be ‘liberal,’ just as Romney doesn’t need to be ‘conservative.’

    For example, Obama’s two Supreme Court appointees alone is enough to make most liberals happy, and willing to vote for Obama again.

    So, he's a corporatist, but he's "our" corporatist.
