If you wanted serious discourse, surely you could create a more challenging scenario and questions, not something any Poli-Sci 101 student could retort in their beer induced sleep.

Please, by all means enlighten me. The primary argument in every election since GHWB has been the "lesser of two evils." Refute one point that I made in the policies and platforms Myth supports, which hmm seem to be a lot of the same Dem talking points as well.

You can make all the snarky comments you want, but that doesn't change the fact Myth supported abortion, queer "marriage," gun bans, championed RomneyCare in Mass (that 0Care was later based on), and giving Al-Qa'ida in Syria weapons. Nor does it change the fact that Hillary supported the same thing.

If we are going to play the lesser of two evils game, tell me where it ends. Because all I see is the Stupid Party (R) discussing more gun control, caving on the fiscal cliff talks, arguing for arming "rebels" in Syria, arguing for arming "rebels" in Libya (hey didn't one of our Ambassadors get killed in that fiasco?), and saying we need a "bigger tent" to "legalize undocumented immigrants" and welcome "married" homosexuals. None of that sounds like Conservative principle to me.

We don’t need to identify and label the liberal media. We already know who they are.

What we need to do is to battle them, with the facts.

But the facts won’t be spread by the left-wing media.

So, what is the answer?

Perhaps setting up alternate media, which we already have some of, but we need a lot more, and more comprehensive, and with the intent of “educating” and not just informing the readers. We need to get their attention, and to hold it.

Abandoning the republican party is also not the answer. That’s equivalent of pointing the finger at the wrong party. The news and information outlets should not be controlled by any political party. The control belongs with the people, with no particular agenda, other than to inform and educate. Political affiliations of those who manage the media should be fully disclosed. News and information and commentaries should be identified as being biased, if they are, and any when reporters and commentators are trying to advance an agenda, then that should also be disclosed.

I have an idea about how to accomplish that, and it would require a new web-based news and information service, which can collect and categorize and make available all the news and information from all sources, whether left-leaning or right-leaning or neutral, but all appearing together, via categories and subjects/topics, so that people can read about the same topics and news from all sides, with the intent of presenting all views. Even the reporters/columnists/commentators/opinion writers, would be categorized.

Such a service is quite possible and easy write and implement. We’d just need to make sure that, as many people become aware of it as quickly as possible. It could easily supplant Google and Yahoo and most other news and information services out there, with the proper implementation and marketing/advertising.

Glenn Beck has been developing a web-based program and news organization.. gbtv.com or theblaze.com is his network. He talks about things in his daytime broadcast at 2pm PST / 5pm EST the mainstream media would dare not discuss for fear of upsetting their boss, Hussein 0bama. Beck is his own boss, so anything is game and it’s very refreshing. He’ll be talking about the Sandy Hook massacre tomorrow and discussing the REAL problem which are today’s children, not guns and I agree 100%. Will be watching!

The problem with Glen Beck’s properties is that, they are already viewed as biased with right-wing opinion, no matter how much fact-based the content might be. He is seen as a polarizing figure with an agenda that doesn’t fit what the left-wingers feel meets their views or needs.

What I have in mind, would not fit any single agenda or any set of views. I’s intended to be a collection of all views, so that people can finally see what other people are thinking, without having to jump through many other media sources. Neither I nor anyone else would have control of the content or the views. What becomes available on the site, would come from as many media sources, and it would be up to them to provide the content.

I would also provide a means to join discussions regarding an article or commentary that appears on the site. All forums and discussion sites would be welcome too.

As an example, he current issue of the “fiscal cliff” could have hundred of articles appearing on the site, with the source indicated, and a series of forums or discussion sites which might be participants in discussing the issue, and as an example, Free Republic and Huffington Post would have entries or links at the end of an article, which would take the reader to any of those discussions. Thus, the articles would be representative of a broad swath of reporting and commentaries, while the discussion sites would allow the readers to go and express their views/feelings on their preferred forums. The intent is to present the news and information, and to then take the reader to the “opinion” pages of the issues.

You sure do like to ramble. You raise so much dust going down the road that you miss the exit. Marinate that thought for a while.

It was right here, all over Free Republic. People swore that they would never vote for Romney, that they would let Obama get elected before they would vote for him.

Hey slippery, that isn’t what you claimed.

The bizarre claim of yours was that the Evangelicals who were the most republican voters of the 2012 election, were responsible for Romney’s loss, “”It is fundamentalist christians that won Obama a second term.””.

That is an obvious lie, it is the OPPOSITE of the truth, a complete reversal of the truth.

So why are you posting it?

Here's the best response on WND:
Alas, GOP and Romney have betrayed their duty to honestly fight and expose the opponent. They betrayed the duty so grotesquely, that they refused to bring into the fight tones of accusations against their opponent Obama/Soetoro/Soberkach: from his uncertain names to his forgeries, fraud, identity theft, and constitutional ineligibility. Obama ought to be exposed, prosecuted, and convicted for treason, if this nation had an organized opposition.

It was social liberals who made Obama president, not social conservatives, “Christians”.
