"Ron Paul is unelectable!"
"Barack Obama is an elitist warmonger!"
"Rick "The Hair" Perry is working for TPTB!"
"Michelle Bachmann is just a religious nutbar!"
Every day, several times a day, comes post after post of something resembling the above. Yet those same posters never seem to offer us a different

Practically megajoules of energy are expended putting down this or that candidate, without word one on who they think would be a good, or at least
adequate, alternative. Of course, there are the complete fringe who's stock answer is "it doesn't matter, they're all part of the
[Illuminati/Bilderberg/Skull and Bones/Mickey Mouse Fan Club]. I don't know what to think about those people, but...more power to you, I
So, ATS, seriously, tell us something about your candidate, if you even have one. We know about those people above already. Just tell who, in
your opinion, gives a crap about the U.S. and who, again in your opinion, can really help America be prosperous.
It'd be really refreshing to see specifics from people for once. "I really like Ralph Nader's stance on the environment, which is ______" is
specific. "Buddy Roemer wants to cut spending with a plan to _____, and that's why I'm keeping an eye on him!" is specific. "Rick Santorum is not
a viable candidate'!!!"...not so much.
Show us what you have. Even the Ron Paul-ites like me can consider alternatives!
