    the subject of the discussion was Mitt Romney’s apparently successful bid to become the GOP presidential candidate...

    the first caller immediately launched into an incoherent rant about how Republicans are all evil and that anybody who doesn’t like Obama is simply a racist... the talk-show host tried to get the caller to calm down and site specific examples to back up his claims, but the caller just got even more incoherent... I almost felt sorry for any Dems/liberals/progressives who happened to be listening to the rant...

    the next caller started out sounding like a well-spoken and sensibly intelligent person... he described, point by point, the political things he liked and didn’t like about Romney, and said that, politically, he could otherwise get past the few things he didn't like about Romney... but then he said he couldn’t get behind Romney simply because “Romney is a Mormon, and the Mormons are a secretive pseudo-Christian cult bent on taking over the world”... then the caller talked about how this left him conflicted because “Obama shouldn’t even be in office in the first place because he was born outside the USA”... I had to laugh when the talk-show host mentioned that Ron Paul might run as an independent, to which the caller replied “naaaa... that guy’s a kook...”

    Cool story...

    I once hurd a Republican say his state needed a massive liberal HC system, then got it done.

    I once hurd a Republican say he would like to see that HC system on national level, it happened.

    I once hurd a Republican say his HC worked in his state, forgetting to mention the 500 million a year the federal Government pays his state to keep their HC system running.

    I once hurd a Republican say he supported the NDAA

    I once hurd a Republican say he was pro choice, then pro life, then pro choice... then pro life...

    I once hurd a Republican say he wants smaller Government but near every policy they ever did expanded of created bigger Government...

    I once hurd Mitt say all that.

    Vote liberal lite, vote Mitt…

    “Anyone but Obama!” Because you needed to find a way to make Mitt seem viable… “Anyone.” Lolz.


    But hey, that budget balancing small government when judged by his voting record Ron Paul is a "kook." Fuck the constitution, vote Republican, the other liberal party of you’re a fucking commie!

    I'll gladly take my vote somewhere else, you can make fun of me and everyone else that won't line up behind "your guy," but it's amazing you can't see the reason the Republican party is shrinking is because of well... people just like you.

    Yeah, it's Ron Paul or Stalinism. There is no third choice.

    No wonder actual conservatives consider Paul and his goofy followers a liability.
