Most of my so called "friends" are so in love with Mitt that I can't get through to them. Everytime I try and show them that both Obama and Romney are the same I get called every name under the sun, Paulbot being the most popular title I get. Someone shared this picture about Romney with me, what do ya say?

I say that "That's not a full picture of the kind of man Mitt Romney is, and doesn't account for the reasoning behind such actions" myself...

You can be the kindest, best-hearted man in the world and still be entirely wrong for the office of President in my book, and when your stated policies are analyzed or reviewed and shown to drive this country further into debt, prolong terrible policies and decisions with much negative impact on your own citizens, and likely result in an ongoing and increasing loss of civilian life at the hands of our troops in other nations, then I don't think you're qualified as you apparently have no understanding of the limits on US governmental authority or the founding principles of this nation.

I even tried sharing the top post on ATS, 40 points that Romney and Obama are the same. I was immediately labeled a trouble maker, a brat, a Paulbot, and a bigot. I don't get it, how can people be this blind and dumb?

Man, that's harsh.
This is honestly the first time I've ever heard of such a scenario.. You mean Mitt Romney finally has a group of *actual* supporters?? The media really scored one with this Paul Ryan nonsense.

I wouldn't necessarily call these people my friends, I'm in a few conservative discussion groups and I thought I would try and get people to understand who they're voting before they goto the polls. I was relentlessly attacked immediately. Was told my opinion on politics didn't matter because I'm in my mid twenties.

Globalist Scum Bags do stuff for free all the time.

Don't you know it's really easy to give away money when you have more than you can spend?

Looking at the first item....

Apparently he was already rich and didn't need the money.
but he does have a charitable streak in him.

It seems like the only sane people that understand what's really going on not only in US politics but in the world is the ATS community. Everybody I talk to is either a crazy Obama or Romney supporter.

Of course, all rich people give to charity because they can write it all off come tax time!

Not necessarily related, but I once had to do volunteer work at Goodwill and people would donate their bags of trash. The workers sometimes couldn't check it fast enough and they would get a reciept for bags of whatever they said was in there (ie clothes, etc). People rarely genuinely donate for good reasons anymore.

If you notice, all those titles are positions of power.

When you're worth 300 million it isn't about money but perception.

Dude... he donated that inheritance to Brigham Young University for the George W. Romney School of Public Management!

He wasn't feeding any poor people with that; he was donating to his own family legacy.

That doesn't seem to matter to people with they're head buried in the sand. I was told I'm too much into the "truth" because I'm young.

I've been a fan of Romney since he was Governor of Mass., I didn't realize him and Paul Ryan went back so far.
