    Actually, this is what I think of the Obama/Romney supporters as neither one has identifed what is really harming the economy. Romney's ideas on Foreign Policy are dangerous and he could be worse than Obama. Just because we was good at buying distressed companies, stripping them and repackaging them, doesn't mean he is qualified to run the USA!
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    You got that right ! It was for many years that I did not vote for the elephant or the donkey then I wasted my vote on McCain and Palin. I gave up wasting my vote on the independants etc. however. I will probably vote for Romney and Ryan. Can't see anything good from either major party.

    Good thread. My very good friend from Lodi (that now lives in Eureka ca---the far north left coast) and I had our first political discussion via text messages. He asked me if I watched the Democratic convention. He was fired up. He asked me what I thought. I told him " I think Obama is an incredible orator, not as good as Hitler, but a very good speaker". Mitt, I said, is a dud.

    He shot back with a reference to me calling Obama Hitler. He wasn't listening. We talked, and he implied I was rich, that is why I support Romney. We haven't spoken since, but we will--we are good friends. From his perspective---he is a hard worker with a business degree that lost his job, purchased a house at the height of the market. Struggling for sure. Obama is a champion for for the middle class in his opinion.

    What he didn't know, is that I am upside down on two houses, and about even on a third. I have a lot of debt (and stress) that have come with my entrepreneurial spirit. Rich? Nope, struggling too, But, I have a job thank goodness.


    Just wanted to share perspective. Who's going to win----Obama--he is a great speaker.

One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace…........If one has cut, split, hauled, and piled his own good oak, and let his mind work the while, he will remember much about where the heat comes from, and with a wealth of detail denied to those who spend the weekend in town astride a radiator.

    Franco, the next time there is a hurricane headed your way, stand on your front porch and take a leak. You'll get the same results as voting for your no can win Libertarian Candidate. If he or she had a shot, that would be great. They don't, you don't, so quit moaning and groaning about how righteous you are by voting your convictions. And Franco, believe it or not, you are not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Other opinions voiced here are valid as well.

    A victory for me would be in denying either candidate the majority of votes.

    Unlike you, I don't want anymore of the same! No one on RTF wanted Romney during the Primaries. So, you back him all you want, I want better!

    Here is a hint; the Repub Platform is beyond broken.

It's becoming quite clear that you don't give a damn about anything but your own selfish views, which is so typical of a sore loser. After your candidate took it in the shorts, you will go to every possible end to make it hurt for the rest of the country.

    Mark my words, Franco...FOUR MORE YEARS OF OBAMA WILL KILL YOUR BUSINESS! You can put that in your 'principled' pipe and puff away all you want.

    Actually, I sort of understand what Franco is saying. Because of the way the electoral college works, the overwhelming majority that the Republicans currently have in LA allows him to vote his conscience without any real impact on the outcome. Same thing here in Texas. I voted libertarian for pres in 2008, as I simply couldn't stomach Palin, Rep for everything else, my congressional district went
    Dem and Texas went Rep for pres. In this district, my vote doesn't really count as it is overwhelmingly Dem.

    Your correct, I wasn't for Romney during the primaries. But I am for the ONLY one who has a chance of getting rid of the worst POTUS this country has ever seen. You were/are for Ron Paul. Not only did he not win the nomination, he got creamed. Now you want to waste your vote for a guy that has less name recognition than Fred Delph.

    Here's a hint for you: The GOP has a platform and a chance of winning. You don't have diddley squat.
