    I'm so frustrated that Romney is going to be the nominee that I will just vote Johnson, even though that'll be good for Obama. Why let Romney take this country down and the republican party with him? Stupid liberals will only learn when they have no defense for the failures of their ideology and maybe that's what we will have to let happen. Romney is a RINO, and I am finding it difficult to even consider voting for him. Hate to sound defeatist but that's how I feel.

    No disrespect to the regular folks who are supporting Romney, but can't you guys understand why some of us just plain don't trust him?

    Repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care act, and enacting the Ryan Budget would be the two most seismic conservative changes in government in perhaps your lifetime.

    All the Paulites can go pout and beat off in the corner, or they can help make it a reality.

    It's not about trusting Romney, it's about getting rid of Obama.

    That's important, vital.

    I don't like Romney, but Obama is a cancer - he is death to the free Republic.

    "I totally suck but I'm better than Obama" will be the Romney campaign slogan.

    Romney claims a lot of things, but he also flip flops. Which means he can't be trusted to do what he says. He's also a neoliberal.
    So I can understand your concern, lockejaw.

    So you don't think we could come back from Obama?

    I'm not a Paulite. I was for Santorum out of what was offered, I'd rather have Newt over Romney. Repealing Obamacare is the top priority, and I just don't think Romney will push for it like he says he will.

    It's just a messed up situation all around.

    It works.

    I'd rather have a dried cat turd than either of them, but that particular turd didn't win the nomination.

    Anything to cure the cancer known as Obama.

    If Romney wins, he wins twice, not only is he president but the people who voted for him will expect nothing from him except to not be Obama. He gets to skate through his term with no unreasonable expectations of results.

    Right now, I think we can. In four more years? I don't think there will be anything left.
