I would like to keep my mouth shut on this one... but coming from someone who also feels a little despondent about how this primary turned out... you sound almost as nuts as the Occupy Wall Street folks.
We do have a choice. Obama actually hates America. Mitt does not have a conservative record, but I do not believe he hates America. I have known a lot of Mormons in my life and none of them were Occupy Wall Street Commie types. They actually plan for disasters; they mostly believe in gun rights. Their kids are generally responsible and don't get into trouble. In fact their kids often go to horrible places and ride their bikes around in suits and get the hell beat out of them while trying to recruit gang members into their religion. (A true story from a friend at my gun club who was a Mormon “missionary”)
Mitt's dad was chairman and president of American Motors Corporation from 1954 to 1962. He was the front runner before Richard Nixon in the 1968 Republican primary. Mitt actually has experience in business; he no doubt has some concept of how to create an atmosphere that will encourage entrepreneurship. Businesses putting people back to work is the only way that this country will be able to dig itself out of the mess that has been made.
If we want our kids, our grand-kids and their grand-kids to have a prosperous future we must keep our eye on the ball. I don't really understand what you are talking about, but it doesn't sound like a plan that is going to create a stable atmosphere for businesses and people wanting to build a future for themselves. Mitt may not be the conservative that I wanted... but I don't know if the country can survive four more years of Obama. So we do have a choice.
My slogan for the Romney campaign... At least I am not as bad as John McCain
Some choice. You've got a USDA Prime Socialist, versus a USDA Grade B Socialist.
Trust me, I pray that you are right, and that I am wrong. I'm almost certain at this point that Romney is going to win the election, but there is NO evidence that he's going to run the country like a Republican, let alone, as a conservative.
Frankly, the man's record in office reads like any liberal Democrat's, which is the only realistic way to predict how he'll behave in office in the future. I haven't seen one thing from his performance in public over the last six years that convinces me that he's changed his stripes, or that he's grown a conservative core. Not one.
You Romney supporters are now down to saying, "Well, I'd rather have a flip-flopping liberal in office, than an anti-American Marxist."
That's small comfort, given the times in which we live. It's tantamount to getting a new driver who continues to drive you toward the same cliff, but simply backs off the gas a bit while doing so. You're gonna die anyway, no matter which of them is at the wheel.
The point that I continue to try to make, is that it's our duty to RESIST this evil, no matter which of these elitist scumbags is elected.
I'm sorry, but whoopti-frickin'-doo. Just because a guy can run a business doesn't mean he's a conservative, principled, free market, or even fiscally conservative. What it means is that he knows how to use control over employees and production to achieve goals within market transactions. That is ALL it means. Deifying businessmen is as misgided as deifying lawyers.
And come on, "Mitt does not have a conservative record."
No, Mitt has steadily and solidly advanced five -- count 'em, five of the key agendas of liberalism. Not just one or two, but FIVE. He has a record of actively promoting and furthering them. No gray area here.
Now, Republicans can vote for that if they want, but that's NUTS.
Do they really think Obama is made of some magic stuff? He's a scarecrow, for crying out loud.
