Windflier, I can see you’re sincere and you’ve never been nasty. I appreciate that.
But I cannot agree with you.
Put yourself in the shoes of an American colonist in the late 1700s. Events are coming to a head. Do you support the Loyalists, or the Revolution? Or, do you choose the third way, and refuse to stand for anything? Those are your only choices.
A vote for Romney or Obama is a vote to continue under the reign of King George III. The only candidate who represents the Revolution is Newt Gingrich. If he doesn't make it, will you then decide that those chains really do "rest lightly upon you"?
Think about it. It's where we truly are today.
