I am an Romney supporter. Let me be the first. I am for anyone against Obama.
I find it illogical that those who claim to be Ron Paul Libertarians who are supposedly strict Constitutionalists are willing to vote for the man who is destroying the Constitution if their first choice doesn't win.
I find it illogical for people to vote against someone instead of voting for someone.
At least the Ron Paul folks have the integrity to actually support who they like and are unwilling to bend...but it seems like you have no beliefs you stand behind...just someone that you are against.
I think you may have misunderstood, as I'm personally not aware (perhaps am just ignorant) of any Paul supporters being discussed here who could vote for either Romney OR Obama. I believe The Sword was indicating that we will sit out instead of holding our nose and voting for Romney to oust Obama.
The reason for this, in my and my family's case at least, is because there's not much more than a dime's worth of difference between them. They are all too close on pretty much any matter of substance, and both have shown themselves to be entirely too undependable when comes to holding to their promises, as well as entirely too willing to screw over the US citizenry and continue signing horrible legislation (such as PATRIOT Act extensions and various other NEW offenses like NDAA, etc.), approving budgets that will screw our descendents over for...well, pretty much ever, not working to reverse any existing and egregious offenses, and a range of other similar issues on which the two are all too alike.
Coupling ALL that with the fact that they're more or less bankrolled by the same wicked parties that had big share in directing us into these messes in the first place (and continue to work against the common man to their own benefit) and - screw them both.
If I don't have anybody worth voting for, who actually represents MY interests - I'm not voting. Hopefully the Libertarians will make the ballot here, because I would be able to in good conscious support Gary Johnson, although I wouldn't prefer him.
Oh, and before I forget - don't mistake the fact that the GOP has perverted itself into something far from its original long-standing ideals and truths to twist things and say these people aren't GOP - the GOP is just no longer itself, and has become populated by those who would better fit into the democratic party of legacy. Big government, foreign intervention, and a range of other things the GOP now holds dear used to be DEMOCRATIC party indicators.

30 minutes into the thread, no flags.
I'm well aware that this place is crawling with Paul supporters, I'm not really interested in getting stars or flags, I'm just really interested in the mindset of paul supporters on here. If you really base truth or fact upon howmany stars or flags a poster gets then you're not well and truly searching for the truth.

Sorry, same old story. They are the same. I am not interested in canned remarks.
That said - as to Romney being the best choice for republicans

I would be convinced that Romney is beating Paul if they would get rid of the manipulatable electronic voting machines,
