    i registered to vote when i was 18, it only took me a couple of years to realize the Republican party is a big fraud.
    i don't know what the hell is taking you people so long.

    i voted for Pat Buchanan , Ross Perot, and even Alan Keyes, and WITHOUT A DOUBT this country would be WAY better off if any of these people won. i have absolutely no regret voting for these people and time has shown i was right.

    the Republican party is the Washington Generals to the Democrat's Harlem Globe Trotters.
    while the Republicans wave their arms around the democrats are using trampolines and ladders to get their policy passed.

    this is the first election of my lifetime where i could give a rat's ass who wins.
    ever since Romney got the nomination i haven't watched anything politics related.

    the Democrats passed the most anti-democratic and anti-American bill since Civil War era politics.
    the Health Care Bill that forces Americans to contribute to health care profits.
    it's not "ObamaCare" , they've been getting ready to pass this bill since the Carter era.
    the "solution" is , what ever problems we have with health care, they are going to make every working American pick up the tab.
    what did the Republicans do?
    they put on a big act that they were against the bill, and at the same time they selected Republican candidates who would insure the bill doesn't get over-turned if the Republicans won office.
    Mitt Romney, the guy who enacted forced health care on the state level, and Rick Perry , the guy who sent a bunch of teenage girls to their deaths by forcing them to have a health care procedure.

    for the first time in a long time, we had great people running for office, people who would try to enact some reform...a return to sanity.
    Paul , Bachmann, Cain, and even Palin.

    what did the Republican voters do?
    they ALLOWED the leadership to select , big business, pro-health care candidates for them.
    all the accomplishments the Tea Party made ...gone in an instant.

    Anything other than a vote for Romney is essentially a vote for Obama.

    I made that mistake by voting for Perot... handed the WH to Clinton.

    I was young, and idealistic... I am older and wiser now.

    a lot, a reeeeeel lot of what you said, is true...no doubt. I have told them to piss off a number of times, Perot and I wrote in Paul last time.

    I said it here already Romney is a flip flopping establishment cum Rockefeller rep.....


    but, I simply cannot let obama sniff the wh for 4 more....its sux, I mean it and I will hate a part of myself for doing it, but....there it is.

    That is exactly the type of mentality that prevents a third party candidate from having a shot at the White House. Vote for Gary Johnson. He is the man.

    I'd take Clinton ANY DAY over anything else since Reagan.

    This time it doesn't matter.

    Elect Obama and get more of the same.

    Elect Romney and you get Obama in pancake makeup.

    Why isn't Rubio running for VP? Because if Romney loses he (Rubio) get labelled "loser".
    Because if Romney wins and fails as miserably as his acolyte, Obama (who picked up on Romney's health care communization in Massachusetts so brilliantly) then he (Rubio) gets labelled loser and, worse, Obama runs again in 2016.

    Better for someone else to take the fall.

    SO, the Republican party is not far enough to the right for you?

    When I say Romney is a step in the the right direction... think of a giant ship.
    I takes a long time to make a turn, but the captain (the voters) have to begin that turn sometime.... 2010 was a call for a change, and 2012 is the year is happens.

    He didn't seek to fundamentally change this nation into something else either... I would take him in a heartbeat over Obama.

    Bush was a HUGE let down for me as a conservative though, but again... I don't think he disliked America as Obama does.
