Representative government can only work if you vote for the person that you feel like best represents you. If you are convinced that your candidate
can't win, especially at this early stage, then you have already thrown your vote away. The fact that you have stated Obama as your preference
probably makes this entire exchange futile, but I always feel like there is hope that people will eventually come to their senses.
Yes, the two major parties are like drug dealers, and that is why the GOP hates Ron Paul. It is rather simple.
"Rather simple"? OK, in part your right but also those who suckle at the boobs of those w/ vested interest in getting "their candidate", Newt
being as obscene and extreme, this guy so pathetic in being sold to anyone writing a check. HE the Newt has to be investigated for his (I will also
leave his monstrous hypocrisy calling for impeachment of Clinton being I believe said something like "he's just immoral and has sex w/an intern in
the WH? God forbid. Check out out if interested LBJ as for his mean and hateful view of Jack and MOST of all Bobby Kennedy. Very scary sob LBJ.
Even my Dad thinks LBJ had something to do w/killing JFK. I don't like my Dad as he is a cold, well I won't say it, and in effect hasn't called me
except at most once a year since my 20's. But he is the smartest business man I have ever met and former G2, so who knows. I trust his uncanny, even
Newt being so bought and paid for and frankly I think he would not be the most rational guy (serious understatement here) in the White House (lets
leave weird, flighty, flakey behavior for latter) Also then his comment how Christians are SO persecuted in the US. What is this guy smoking? And if
not on drugs perhaps medication IS in order. I only rag on Newt because I think that guy has real psychological issues, but is the bull s***** ever to
be so ridiculous. In recent times try to bs everyone that he should be President.You have Perry who dropped out thank the good Lord, this guy was well
stupid. Santorum, rumor if he has any brain (not seen any signs of life there yet) but the $$ people who would support him are likely to trample all,
like the Italian Cruise ship crew and the lovely captain who "fell"into a life boat... Those who now are fanatic enough to support him will jump
ship, keep their cash because Rick S. is as stated rumor has it he will drop out, likely next. My God the condescending religious nuts who "so
believe freedom in of religion" That also means freedom FROM religion, I seem to recall something about the separation of church and state...
Sad to see Huntsman go, I think he by far was the smartest former candidate of the GOP including Paul. Why do the GOP either as you said and I agree
hate people like Paul or some get glazed-eyes when a guy like Huntsman who is quite bright to say the least and I know as a fact having talked to some
in the Obama camp would have scared the hell out of Obama, but know the GOP is not a bastion of deep thinkers as I seriously believe Obama is, though
I would love a bit more fire directed at the (R) idiots. Perhaps saving that for the post coronation, likely to be the pleasant and 15% guy tax
Actually I think the GOP hates Ron Paul because he has ideas that scare the s*** out of those with vast, vested interests. And Obama? He is getting
bocu bucks from those who think he can be a benefit to them. It's just the way politics is, and why I up-chuck when even thinking of running for any
office. I like working behind the scene in areas not so much political. But have in the past. We have no virgins in politics. Sometimes there are
those who feel lets give $$$ to the person who is something of a stabilizing force and I don't feel Obama is "wasting my vote"I think he's done
pretty well w/the idiot, and damn near criminal obstructionist Republicans in Congress, along with the addicts to "all Fox News all the time". By
the way Obama can win, but nothing at this as you say early time is certain. So I listen as much of whats out there as much as possible. I really mean
I DO believe people need to get their information from sources they don't always agree with (why does any one possibly think I watch Fox, then
usually need some Tum's or Pepto Bismol. ) I try to be as aware of as many points of view as possible.
Look I feel my "rational sense of reality"is alive and well thank you very much. But voting for a guy WHO CAN't win save some surrealistic
dimensional shift in the cosmic order. Much more important I don't agree w/a number of RP issues. He's just to far out there for me and if you look
at WHAT Obama has done given the (R) Congress who tea party clan is drinking something but sure isn't any tea I ever heard of, he's been OK. And I
will vote for him.
