Don't have to imagine if there were no liberals all anyone has to do is look at China and see how well they are doing

They have jobs and cash and a future instead of what passes for liberalism in America.

Yea, pesky republic we live in. God forbid Romney actually has to compete for the nomination. That would be so very, democratic. We can't have that at all. Better to single out any other candidates as loons and segregate them into other political parties so we can more easily bash their platform and ostracize them from the political process.

This is just one of a few things I disagree with RP on. Not a liberal, ecologist/tree-hugging thing...it is common sense...you don't sh!t where you eat and you don't poison your own water supply.


I for one can see where the EPA is not a federal issue... why should Maine, which has a much smaller impact on the environment have to pay for Californias industrial waste?

Protection of the environment is a local issue that should be delt with on the state level. This way, states that have a higher amount of industries are the ones paying the state employees to uphold state laws

I for one don't want to pay for some other states waste policies

I think the OP clearly laid out his reasons for voting for Romney. Go back to page one and READ SLOWER. It’s so typical that you’d jump in with the ‘FOX News’ bashing!


Yes he clearly laid out his reasons for voting for Romney and they are inline with the Foxnews propaganda machine.



Where do RP supporters get their news?? :

RP supporters get their news from different sources but in the end they use something that is not common among the GOP and DNC loyalist and that is commonsense. We know its all about the money and political ideology has nothing to do with it and we don't fall for political slogans nor promises. We look at track record. Of course the OP is going to agree on many things with Romney because Romney has flipped flopped so many times that its statistically impossible to not agree with Romney. However, look at his career in gov't and you see the truth.

Maybe the GOP and the DNC shouldn't have partnered up after Ross Perot to exclude all other parties from media coverage and debates. How has Ron Paul F’d up the GOP primary? You make it sound like its a bad thing to have loyal educated voters that know what the GOP rules are?

Why does the OP only use Obama's middle name?
It calls into question the nature of such a post, and the ethnocentric nature of the one posting.
It borders on racism.

Also, this is a real annoyance of mine - if you are going to post a new thread, SPELL THE TITLE CORRECTLY.

Bah, it just makes you look stupid and/or lazy.

Personally I would chose death before I cast a vote for Obamney or Barak! Both are just two sides of the same old coin. Our civil liberties are under attack, and as such we need real leaders not more plastic men/puppet's.

Given all the recent fraud in the primaries I would say with some certainty that Obamney is just the next step in some agenda! The media black out on Ron Paul speaks loads, and I for one demand reform! Obamney offers none!

So your going to vote for the guy that said he says something to some people then clears everything like an etch a sketch to different views to garnish more votes? Great choice everybody loves a flip flopper.

That’s not what I meant!

If we didn’t have the 2 party system then people like me would actually have a CONSERVATIVE to vote for rather than an old foolish libertarian and a fat cat RINO! We need more choices then let the chips fall where they may.

Who says I am a republican?


That being said. I agree there is a need to ensure that corporations don't pollute the hell of of the planet. I was merely making a point because the OP was acting as if Romney's supposed stance against the "clean air act" was a big deal. Well, RP stands against the EPA, so there. Go big or go home.

My point is Romney is just another empty suit. "The trees are all the right height" "learning how to say ya'll" and some nonsense about grits.

He is a shill for the corporatist lobby. He is an idiot. I guess when you have had a quarter billion dollars for a majority of your life, run companies, and been governor, what else is there to do? Be president I suppose. The position of Supreme leader of the entire universe hasn't been fully defined yet.

Ah to be a bored quarter-billionaire....

A VOTE FOR ROMNEY -

Same train, same tracks, different color engine pulling it along. If you get on board it will wind up in the same place, it only sounds and looks different. It acts and does the same.


A VOTE FOR PAUL - Change you can believe in. "this time its real"

A VOTE FOR OBAMA -

"President Obama has revealed his new re-election slogan — 'Forward.' That's a good message for Obama. He's telling voters, 'Whatever you do, don't look back at all those campaign promises I made.'" –Jay Leno

Cool. Then don't vote for any R's or D's anymore. Get your friends and family to vote for something other than R or D. The only reason we have a two party system is because we allow it.

If so, that somehow makes Romney’s platform inaccurate or irrelevant?

If you had common sense you’d know that RP’s plan to close ALL military bases overseas at a time when other countries are beefing up their capabilities is a FOOLISH thing to do!

No sir, we do not share the same 'common' sense!

Remember in '04 when the Republicans had a field day calling Kerry a flip flopper?

I love irony. The Republicans and Democrats constantly bash each other for this and that, but then when someone from their side does it it's a different story.

Hilarious.

How?

He wants to privatize Amtrak and Social Security? Where have we heard this before?

It sounds like he's been ripping pages out of the Bush and McCain playbooks.

What you didn't mention is what he would do with all that money that he saves by cutting these programs. Does it go back into the pockets of R$ and his rich donors?


I'm for Ron Paul myself, but I have to say, cutting out federal spending makes it harder to put money in pockets. He will be gutting the slush funds that make it easier to pocket money. I do believe that he would cut spending and get the budget under control. Heck, I bet he'd even actually MAKE a budget, something the current admin hasn't done.
I am concerned about the term sustainable as that is used in Agenda 21 and all the environmental hoopla, so I hope that is not Romney's usage. Also I do not trust what he says about health care since he implemented Romneycare, but then he did that for a liberal constituency.

YES and great majority of them live in appalling conditions, they are treated horribly at work,
their environment is polluted and they have lives that are based around mass production of goods
for other people, for pigeon feed wages.

Well the “L” is just as friggen bad.

I’ll cast my vote in November and there won’t be any “L” next to it. I’m tired of the system but not tired enough to throw it away!

Seriously, as if being in all these countries with a military presence is what has protected us? What has it protected us from exactly? What has it protected anyone else from? Being in these countries, does absolutely nothing but make AMERICA less safe, and these countries Targets for our enemies. Unless you are of the belief that our current policy doesn't create the EXACT problem we are facing, then I can see why your version of common sense is so different.

AMERICA has bases all over the world, what should we do? uh, uh - we had better build some bombs, those crazy f.....s might do something stupid. You seriously cannot see that we are causing the massive build up of arms by trying to make America exactly what many other Imperial nations have tried but failed to do in the past. How exactly does that point escape you? We are trying to police the world, what exactly is the result of that............... WAR. that is the response to a foreign country trying to dictate policy globally.

Have you looked at how much money we spend on DEFENSE. You don't think that if we were IRAN and we didn't share America's views, and we noticed America strategically setting up bases around our country, that we would do nothing in response. Change that to China, and America - then you might understand why Ron Paul is Right. And that it IS IN FACT COMMON SENSE to STOP.
