By all means, explain finally how it is that electing a pro gay, abortion funding, healthcare/amnesty pushing liberal instead of a a pro gay, abortion funding, healthcare/amnesty pushing liberal benefits America.

In detail. Without excuses.

re: “By all means, explain finally how it is that electing a pro gay, abortion funding, healthcare/amnesty pushing liberal instead of a a pro gay, abortion funding, healthcare/amnesty pushing liberal benefits America. In detail. Without excuses.”

You see, you equate Romney with Obama. You equate them as being exactly the same not only in political ideology, but also in degree of commitment to issues you listed. I think that’s an unsound analysis.

Yes, the republican choice sucked, and yes, Romney had some problems in the four areas you mentioned, but you think Romney was as much pro-abortion as Obama (who supported post-birth abortion)?? You think Romney would have pushed the gay agenda, obamacare and amnesty to the same reckless, whole-hearted degree as Obama??

Maybe another question would be: Explain how voting for Romney would have put the country in the same exact or worse position it is now economically, militarily, in our foreign policy, and yes, even morally under B. Obama?

By degree, which candidate demonstrated more respect for our economy, foreign policy, our military readiness, our Constitution and self-government? Romney or Obama?

Voting always involves voting for more good and less evil. One of the two candidates is going to be, by degree closer to what you believe than the other one. Sometimes the better candidate is only 40% or 50% of what you want or 60% of what you want, while the other one is 0 to 2% of what you want.

Which one do you vote for? It’s a no-brainer.

For your question to be valid, as I said previously, you would have to believe that Romney and Obama are EXACTLY the same in belief and degree of commitment to the gay agenda, abortion, socialized medicine, and amnesty.

If you actually believe that then no answer will satisfy you.

My greater concern now is how the republican party seems completely whipped since the election. Excepting for a few republicans who have spoken out, the majority have acted with no backbone at all. It’s as though they think it’s over. Why fight it? Thus, they have not, except on a rare occasion or two, acted as an opposition party.

I think part of the reason is because of the loss of the presidency in 2012. I think everyone thought Obama was going to lose and lose big. He should have. But, Obama’s people (alive and dead, legal and illegal) showed up big time to vote and conservatives didn’t. Now. Here we are.

Are we better off or worse?
