So I go home for vaction last week for a few days, and Oh My God, all my dad watches IS THE GOP Debates and all the political news thats on TV 24-7! I wasn't up to date on it, sometimes wasn't understanding the big uproar about it and the people running when I read many of the threads about it here on ATS, BUT I AM NOW!

First of all ole Newt has got to be wearing a hair piece, and according to my dad and his description of his past events, the democrats have got some major secrets on him that will kill his run for pres! Next I guess Romny was the guy to pick, but now people are outraged because of his 40 million dollar tax claim. Third I think Ron Paul is absolutely awesome, and is so funny! I find him more entertaining, so much I have a hard time taking him seriously. And last well, I can't even remember who that other guy is, so enough said.

My family and I being Liberal, still has nothing to do with the way we vote, but this year it seems like Obama is the best bet! And why in the heck is my dad so obsessed with this run, way more than he EVER has been in the past years? (and he has always kept up with the politics) Why is this one SO Much more important to people? He's not the only one hypnotized by this debate, its also my boyfriend, and friends whom never even gave a hoot until now?

I just find it weird, and I also find the GOP Debates odd! Jeeze I am more confused as ever who to pull for, and now I think I am becoming obsessed to see the outcome of everything. I was Obama all the way, but I realize I need to always do my research before just automatically making my mind up. And sometimes the safe way isn't always the way to go.

Also got to say I do believe that something will happen in 2012, even though I don't know what, and maybe forces unknown are getting people's undies in a wad over this debate and presidental race. (just my opinion) Cause really help me ATS Members, does it not seem this way to you? People are Obsessed and more confused than ever, I mean....WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?

You don't quite understand how close to the brink we all are, do you?

The Dollar is going to collapse, the world is going to have some major problems in the next few years.

And the only one who will really change anything, is Ron Paul

I promise you, this is so very important, if you want more war . . .. vote anyone but Ron Paul.

Good luck, and do some research of the puppet government

Its people clinging to a system they know will fail them. Its futile false hope. People are seeing/realising that things really are bad. That paying attention to the world is not only important but almost an obligation. The time that we all see that our political system is a ruse is drawing near. Patients will be worn through soon. They know it too. They know we dont want 'career politicians' but they think we are stupid enough to put faith in millionaires/banksters to run things because they arent 'career politicians'. We arent that stupid are we? How long can they continue to fool us? Not long is what I think. More and more are paying attention now.

I feel ya, man. Those debates are a dog and phony show to see who can cater to each state the best. The only chance the GOP has of winning is Paul. Take note that I am not one of his cult followers. I believe he knew about those newletters and didn't have a problem with the inflammatory language until later in life...if at all. However, I like most of his ideas, which is more than I can say about the other GOP candidates.

The present POTUS is a puppet and traitor to the American people (transparency my butt!). Besides Paul, those others are fanatics, with no chance of winning at all. They get their applause only when in a room with other fanatics, but when it comes time to debate with everyone in the audience, they will shrink to nothing in no time. The GOP better give Paul the nod if they want to be relevant in the future; as their main propagandanist, Rupert Murdoch is going down soon.

Without his influence, the GOP will be stripped naked for all the world to see.

I understand your father. I really feel compelled (obsessed if you prefer) to listen to each and every word, watch each and every facial expression and do research into who lies and who does not and what each truly stands for.

If I knew I were going to die the day after the election I'd still have to follow this and participate. My children and grandchildren's future has never been less assured. Your's either. If you're old enough to vote and you don't... you have no one to blame but yourself for where this country goes in the near future! You owe it to your own future to get a handle on the candidates.

He understands that he is watcing two candidates attempt to kill each other while they are unknowingly killing the republican party and any change of winning the election away from Obama who, of course, will not be going through any of that.

And the stories that will come out about him from the Red side will be tossed off by his supporters just as they have continued to discount current dirt out there on him.

We must wonder since these guys are committing suicide of their party how the TPTB of that party allow it to happen. Wemusto suspect that there are bigger puppet masters behind the scenes enabling this incredible show.

You know, there is no easier, faster way for the NWO to assume control of the US than through the continuation of Obama's doings. Destroying the seemingly golden opportunity republicans had at the onset would a vital part of the plan and not a spur of the moment tactic. Were there two less offensive people to push to the forefront, yes, but we find ourselves with these two jokers that can't shutup.
