In 2008 I said, "I hate McCain. He's a RINO. I'm not voting for him." But I looked at Obama, I took a deep breath, and I voted for McCain.
In 2012 I said, "I hate Romney. He's a RINO. I'm not voting for him." But I looked at Obama, I took a deep breath, and I voted for Romney.
I have voted straight Republican since 1978 (well, a couple stray Libertarian votes a long time ago ...) but my current position is: I'm done. No more money or votes for the GOP. That party needs to die and be replaced.
But we will see if my resolve holds up.
Yep. Many of us are in that same boat. Though I would add this: I actually came to like Romney. A lot.
But his campaign fools did him in. Of course he should have fired them, so ultimately it all comes back to him.
I (and many others) are far far far far from being GOP haters.
But, for the most part, we are done.
