    As much as I would like to again to send a clear message to the GOP the stakes are just too high.

    I stated many months ago that our choices sucked. But the fact remains that even a shitty choice is better than 4 more years of this clusterfuck we've endured for the last four years.

    Four more years of Obama will enshrine the progressive agenda into the American mind. It will become the norm just like all the social programs that are now breaking us.

    I agree that Romney is not the perfect candidate and that he on occasion has leaned left. But I also believe that he is a pragmatic man and based on that he is the clear choice for our near term fixes. The private sector and industry is tearing at the seams to burst out and just waiting until a business friendly administration won't step on their toes in the process.

    This is not the time to pick the party apart. When the ship is sinking you don't change captains. You plug the fucking hole and worry about power struggles later.

    I couldn't agree with you more. Except for this sentence:


    "When the ship is sinking you don't change captains."

    The ship is sinking and we do need to change the "Captain".

    Willard is an etch-a-sketch, flip flopping piece of shit that want's to do nothing but return us to the epically failed W era plans that destroyed the country in the first place, and expand on them even further. You would have to be mentally ill to support Willard or the GOP.

    So what happens next time when you use that same excuse to elect someone you don't like? What about the election after that, and the one after that? How many times will the stakes be too high to elect someone worth a damn?

    It's always the same every election. "The stakes are too high." "We'll deal with it next time." It never happens. Nothing ever changes because every election is so "critical."
