Romney, Obama, or other?

I’ll either be writing in Ron Paul or voting for Gary Johnson (libertarian). To those who think this is “throwing away your vote,” I heartily disagree. It’s high time the people of this country stood for what they BELIEVED in and not merely what is “convenient.” Throughout the primary I heard countless people say “I like Ron Paul, but I don’t think he’s electable.” BULLSHIT. As if the principles of liberty and natural rights were some apps you could simply download, then go about your day. No, they have to be fought for.
As British soldiers were hanging an American patriot in the Revolution, his last words were “My only regret is that I have but one life to give for my country.” God speed to all Ron Paul fighters out there.
i’m probably not going to vote because i havent been working and paying taxes for the last couple years.
lol @ people who think they can tell the government what to do without paying taxes. Would you keep doing what your boss told you if he stopped paying you?
but in seriousness, I’ll probably vote for Romney because I’m of the belief that the democrats fucked up the economy more than it already was with unnecessary bullshit
No he didn’t.
Wrong, he is only suspending active campaigning in states that have yet to vote in the primaries.
Ron Paul. Period.
My thoughts is that Ron Paul will campaign as a third party. I believe that was his plan all along. Enough of this two-party monopoly on politics. Democrats and Republicans both need to be kicked out. They no longer represent the values and the changing attitudes of the American majority.
@heavydreamz, that’s never ever going to happen in America..ever lol it’d be anarchy. And not that any of our votes really matter because of the E.C anyway, but I’d choose Obama just for the fact that I think if he gets a second term he will legalize/decriminalize marijuana by 2016!
No edit button? Almost deleted my post..
Pick the monkey on the left or the monkey on the right. Either way, same shit is going to go down.. unless we drop this current system and pick up a sustainable one that is within reach, no, it is here, it is now; all we have to do is BE the change want to see.
The two of them are both shady corperatists. Not that it really matters considering United States currently uses the electoral system, but if RJ Harris, Gary Johnson, or Buddy Roemer count, one of them would get my vote. If I had to choose Obama vs. Romney I guess I’d go with Obama, soley because I think he’s capable of less than Mitt
@greenbird9183, I do know exactly what you mean and such an approach is far from foreign to me. Yet by me, your post still didn’t clear a certain hurdle. It doesn’t face straight-on the issue of being handed two theatrical choices of evil, and being content to make an illusory choice from that alone.
It’s a matter of opinion as to which is the “lesser” evil… Doesn’t seem much to debate that either are “evil” except by those who cannot see things in a holistic light. So to me, the fact that it’s a matter of opinion as to which is lesser means that neither can truly be so.
Romney all the way. He’s a living example of the ‘American dream’: came from a very poor family, went through many hardships, but studied/worked his ass off to get where he is today. If you put in the hard work, you deserve the rewards, as far as I’m concerned.
He knows how modern economy works, unlike Obama, and since our economy is in the shitter, he’s the best man for the job at this point in our history.
The key to getting Politics back to some semblance of order and duty, we must get dark money out…….The very first step we should all make, is to contact every perosn we know, and talk about getting rid of Citizens United……….After that is gone, everyone should work towards a stark limit on money that can be spent……..”The Hope Lies with The Proles”
@theboss7607, Okay, well he may not have gone through many hardships (depending on how you define it), but he did work his ass off, stayed resilient and determined to reach his goals, traveled to France on a Mormon mission and tried to promote the French mission while facing physical and economic deprivation, seriously injured in an auto accident 1968 (one hardship/setback), etc.
After graduating Harvard in business AND Law (rediculously impressive), he then started many extremely successful businesses, creating jobs and stimulating growth in the economy.
He also turned the 2002 olympics around from the brink of a fiscal crisis (it was almost cancelled, and they brought him in to organize the leadership, policies, raise money, etc). Not to mention he donated $1 million of his own money in addition to 1.4 million to charity.
He gave 14% of his income to charity in 2010, continuously tithes to the church, and his “Tyler Charitable Foundation gave out about $650,000, with some of it going to organizations that fight specific diseases such as cystic fibrosis and multiple sclerosis.”
Not all rich people are ‘selfish’ and bad people, in fact most give considerable amounts to charity and good causes
@v1kingfan, Obama’s so called pro-gay stance is total B.S. and only used for political leverage against Romney (as are 90% of the things he says). He says he’s pro gay, but then says that it’s okay for each individual state to decide the legalization of gay marriage or not. So likely no changes are going to be made. Basically he just said that he personally thinks gays should be able to marry, but giving them the right to do so is out of his hands. He’s a coward
@taurean10, Anarchy would be a perfect system. Perfectly open, no one would fight over resources, instead be communally harmonious. This country was founded upon this priciple- small government and economy. Unfortunately there will always be someone to take advantage of this and spawn an entire new cycle of fighting over resources, as we’ve seen in this country, as our forefathers knew it would. It’s a constant balancing act. I choose to not be in the dark to the severe imbalance we see today.
It will happen as soon as people are tired enough of this imbalance – more and more small communities will arise (Valhalla) the current power structure will be undermined.
@yoinkie, And Obama isn’t going to destroy the country? Yeah, Romney probably will but Obama is no better. I mean no one else will stand a chance against them but I would rather see Vermin Supreme take office that Obamney, Romney , Obama whatever they are not much different.
