***Governor Palin has more common sense, and more economic sense than many people who are against supporting the only nominee we ended up with.***

If I could, I can tell a parable told to me that mimics our political situation.

Forty years ago, A co-worker was working a construction job deep in the Algerian desert. One day their water system broke and they had nothing to drink except beer for a week while repairs were being made.

One man with a Christian upbringing refused to drink the beer.

After three days in the hot Sahara desert heat, he was swilling down beer with everyone else.

Question: Who would you rather have a President for the next four years?

A successful business man who happens to be a memeber of a cultic church and hopes to be a god?

Or

A man who spent the last twenty or so years in a “Christian” church listening to GOD DAMN AMERICA sermons and thinks he is GOD.

There is lots against Romney I don’t like, especially his liberalism. If he is elected we must also make sure to have a Congress that can set on him like a monkey on his back.

Maybe the GOP will broker a new candidate we all can accept! Wonder what her name would be?

I could see the strategic aspects of voting to gridlock Obama for 4 years IF Obamacare had been overturned (or never passed in the first place). But that didn’t happen. We know how difficult it is to overturn an entitlement once it’s allowed to take hold. Just like we’re hearing on Medicare, “people have planned their lives around receiving this benefit.” And they have a point. Breaking a promise that’s been made isn’t the right thing to do.

Because of that it’s imperative that Obamacare is overturned next year. It’s also imperative that we elect a conservative Congress who will not allow something just as bad to replace it. If Romney did not overturn it, it would be the biggest flip-flop and broken campaign promise in history at this point, so I can’t imagine he would ever think he could get away with not overturning it.

It’s also hard to believe that with a conservative Congress in place, Romney would act much differently than Clinton did. He would pass whatever they sent him. So he can be forced to be a good President even if he wouldn’t naturally be one.

OTOH, if Romney and the Repubs govern as RINOs, it will simply set up the second coming of Democrats who will pass even more far-left policy than Obama has. So it’s a gamble. But the danger of Obamacare taking hold simply outweighs the risk on the other side. That is guaranteed disaster for our country vs. a chance of disaster. Even if we all do is delay inevitable disaster, that’s worth it to give our elderly 4 less years of facing death panel-style socialized medicine rationing.

I think Catholics are also a cult, because they follow orders from the Pope. We had a catholic president named JFK, and he was the first president to push for and get passed tax reduction, during my lifetime. He turned out just fine.

If Romney is elected I could’nt give a rat’s behind about his religion since he is not running for Pope. His dad was also most likely the same religion as him, and he was a very popular governor of Michigan for many years. I am not aware of any Mormon edicts he forced on Michiganites.

I have 2 kids about to graduate from the 27th highest rated university in the WORLD, university of Washington. My biggest issue is if there will be suitable jobs for them or they will end up as statistics along with the 50% college grads who can’t find jobs. It is obvious if Obama gets 4 more years, the economy will look like Greece.

My issue is economy, not religion.
