Nazis were smart. People shrug that off but it’s true. Our entire space program is based on captured nazi technology and scientists. Evil doesn’t have to be stupid.

I’m still waiting, after several years, for a supporter to find an identifiably non liberal episode in his record.

Several years.

You can find the fact that Barry and Killary both opposed gay marriage once in their records. But no one has ever pointed to a single conservative thing in Mitt’s for...

Several years. How pathetic is it when off the top of ones head, one can point to more conservatism in Barack Obama than Mitt Romney?

Now what does that tell you about the true beliefs of people actively defending and pushing him?

Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers

Ultimately is that we now have a system in which people with no ethics are fought for and elected by situational ethicists in order to protect their big screen TVs, boats and cars; and to hell with anyone adhering to outdated notions of honor, integrity and principle that would somehow threaten “my stuff’.

It’s simply the truth.

All the fights and flamewars filling literally hundreds of thousands of posts and not one of his defenders ever once showed an episode of conservatism in his political life.

No one has the fear excuse to hide behind two years from an election. And yet here they are demanding round two of the madness.

These are not people ‘in fear’ of a democrat or sorry they voted liberal. these are people that WANT a liberal. If not, let them explain WHY 2 years out they are making the same noises and excuses they did last time.

How? Instead of voting for the lesser of to evils (at least evil in your minds) you allowed the greater of the two evils to get into office and stay in office. Not voting is a defacto vote for the greater evil. Evil is evil and you have actively, by your inactivity, taken the side of a known evil over your perception of the lesser.

We’ll never know if there was a lesser evil or even if that lesser evil actually existed because of those who didn’t bother to vote.

Those of you who did not vote are part of the obama electorate and you have no right to bitch and moan about it at this point and be taken seriously. I know a lot who fall into this category and I despise them as much as the low-information democrat voters.

Unicorns. One votes for something. Not against. People are not in Soviet Russia yet and are not required to elect the liberal. So your whole delusion means nothing and isn’t worth arguing over something built on false premise.

PS. I voted.

Voting for “something” does not equate to voting. Not voting to remove a true evil is still a defacto win for the true evil.

Your reply is so much blah, blah, blah. You didn’t even take a chance to remove obama. If you think mitt the twit could have been worse then you are really delusional. Even if he had been about the same it would have been at least a wash but again, we’ll never know that, will we?

The false premise is that the two candidates were just the same. No, mitt wouldn’t have been perfect or even meeting what most of us wanted but even marginally better than obama would have left us with some hope.

Thanks again you conscience non-voters.
