How about after Tampa? Then maybe?
Sure, after Tampa. I am not for ending the primary season until after the convention where it actually all gets decided anyway. I'm sure Mitt would
like to think it is all done, decided, and he's the Chosen One but not all Republicans think Romney is the best they can do - and I'm not just
speaking of the Paul camp either.
I've still got fingers crossed for Paul, and one finger reserved for ol' Mittens, but know he is a very long long-shot. A brokered convention may
still be a possibility and another chance for a better selection, or worse. Romney/Obama for some reason just doesn't prompt me to get up and
So yeah, after Tampa, OK?

Fair enough. That sounds entirely fair. If the convention throws an unexpected turn for the nation and Paul somehow comes out on top, then he will
have my complete and total enthusiastic support. I gave it to him when he was here in Missouri for the Caucus, without hesitation and that cost me
personally with Republican friends. It's not something I regret and I'll even say the enthusiasm in here is almost contagious. I'd so like to see
this happen, I just don't dare hope. I have done all I could do as a citizen and voter for Paul in my state though. It's up to the delegates now.
For those going? I hope the best. I sincerely do.
@ Those all but getting outright hostile about the fact my feelings don't conform
I honestly, sincerely and to my very core believe that Barrack Obama will be the end of the United States as I grew up knowing it. There isn't a
question in my mind. It's a simple cause and effect matter to my thinking and as sure as the sun rising tomorrow morning. I don't accept voting for
Romney as some sheeple to the Republican party. Hardly. I watched 'The Party' do all it could and break rules where necessary to bury Dr. Paul in
Missouri. They aren't my favorite people by ANY means.
Now, having said that, it's still the same choice. I don't know what Romney will bring. Could be the same....maybe it's not. Maybe Mittens does
nothing but carry us to 2016 when we have a shot at Rand Paul or someone else, equally promising. Maybe Mittens DOES run us into the same pit as
Obama. It doesn't matter in how I vote because Romney MAY do all these things. I feel that I *KNOW* Obama will.
So... Vote 100% SURE destruction to what I consider my way of life? Or Vote for what *MIGHT* allow a second chance? I'm an American..I just don't
know what losing hope means and defeat isn't a word I know. I'll go with the POSSIBLE over the CERTAIN and I won't give up until there is nothing
left to work with. We are a long way from that point.
