.....are you going to not vote in the general election?

With all the threads we have had people have been saying alot of things about the candidates.  

Ron Paul is a loon

Bachman is unelectable

Romney is Romney

Perry is a political opportunist RINO

etc, etc, etc.....

The way I see it whoever we get out of the primary is really going to be our only shot at getting rid or Obammy.....while i do not believe voting 3rd party is a wasted vote doing it will probably work to Obama's benefit.  Alot of us are going to have to get behind someone we are not really totally in favor of and simply choose the lesser of 2 dumbasses simply to be done with The Great One.

NO candidate in the current lineup is as bad as Obama.

We DO NOT want another 4 years of Zero. Not unless you want a real life SHTF scenario in this country, I know I don't.


Ron Paul is a loon -  at least he's not a commie loon.

Bachman is unelectable - no candidate is "unelectable" given the right circumstances but the media wants you to think they can dictate who you vote for..

Romney is Romney  - He's a RINO extraordinaire, but he will follow the rules. Obama doesn't.

Perry is a political opportunist RINO -  sure, but if Perry runs the US at least as well as he runs Texas, we wil still be far better off than we are with Obama.

Talking politics is like talking football for grown ups.

I fail to see how folks don't get that disliking Perry or Paul does not make you into a closest Obama supporter who will surely march to a communist drum to spite himself and his party next election.

The main reason I vote Republican is to keep Democrats out of elected office.  I will always vote GOP to keep Democrats out.  I can't think of an election where the Democrat was the more palatable candidate over the Republican.



The GOP aligns with my political beliefs about 50% at best.  It's the best we can do in this system, I don't get all butthurt when George Bush creates another minor entitlement program.  As we are seeing now, the alternative is so much worse.

Nope, vote for Obama.

I'd rather help bring it down if we can't get a candidate that will get things fixed.

There is no kicking the can down the road for me any longer.  No more concessions, no more flexibility.  We saw what that brought us in 2008, and look what we got for it.

Look at what the Tea Party succeeded in doing..........placing people in positions that would never have been thought capable of a R candidate.  Goes to show you that when you make yourself heard, you will find someone to listen.  The problem with Republican voters is that they don't really do a good enough job making it know that they will not abide by sub par candidates.

I believe in principles and I believe there are consequences for standing by them.  If I choose not to vote in the presidential election because I am not a supporter of Romney or Perry then I also choose to live with the consequences of that choice. In the short term it could be simply four more years of Obama and I doubt he will be as restrained as he has in his first term. In the long term it will also mean a potential reshaping of the Supreme court and preparing myself for a left leaning court where there will be undoubted challenges to our 2nd amendment rights. Regardless that's the beauty of this country it's my choice and my vote.

I'm not sure yet.  I do not like most of them.   Take a look at every politician since the beginning of broadcast TV.   They say all of these things they stand for and will do if elected and once elected do none of it.

Use O as an example.   The anti war president.  How many wars are going on?   He will close Guantanamo, is it still open?  He will sign into law the employee free choice act(I think that is what it was called, not sure).  He will blah, blah, blah.   Where is it?  He passed Obama care by cheating, and pissing on the Constitution.

You think if Romney won that fucktard would do one fucking thing to  bring us onto a more liberty minded path?  Fuck no.   You think he would fix the economy through sound policies?  Fuck no.   You think he would secure the border?  Fuck no.   Think he would balance the budget?

FUCK NO!

I'll vote for the person I like most in the primary, and whoever wins the nomination will get my vote over the Kenyan. Anyone who votes for that cocksucker or doesn't vote at all, may as well give up his guns and his membership here because he's voting to take away my rights. There are many important things to consider other than just presidential policy as it pertains to economics and foreign policy. There are also supreme court justices to think of. Appellate courts as well. I know we been handed a few shitty ones by Rinos, but not nearly as shitty as would be nominated by Obama. All of the appointees in high government positions that are not elected are at stake too. You want more Van Joneses, and more Andy Sterns ? You get at least that in a second Obama term, and worse. And, no matter how much some of you hated him, there is no Glenn Beck out there to bring attention to these dirtbags. He was responsible for bringing them to light, and getting the pressure on them to step down. The deck will be stacked with communists/Marxist/Socialists and there will be no one there to bring them down. We will bitch and moan, but we don't have the international television exposure to make a difference.

If you vote for Obama, or you stay home, hoping to bring about enough of a shitstorm for the reset button to be hit, you don't have a clue how fucked up that is. This nation will be fucked for 20 years at least, will lose it's ability to defend itself since we will not be able to afford much of a military and most technically advanced programs will die, and it's currency and industries will be avoided by world markets, and everyone here will suffer. Not just the poor that are there due to their own choices, and the thugs and welfare queens, but all of us, including your family and children. Quite possibly, and most likely, we will not wind up with a republic, but at best a communist/democratic system, and at worst a military dictatorship. If that is what you want, you are really clueless as to what real suffering is. The ship is sinking, but it's much better to turn her around and bring her back to port for repairs, while we frantically man the pumps and buckets, than it is to scuttle her in hopes that one day we will return to the sea to find what's left in hopes of salvaging it.

The RINOs can't tell the difference between a vote for a RINO and a vote against Obama. If I vote RINO, it would appear to them that I support their politics, which I don't. Voting for a RINO only propagates RINO policies, which keep drifting left. I can't support that.

I vote for who I want to lead our side in the primaries.  I vote for the republican in the general election.  I don't care who it is because it is the consensus of my side of the isle.  If my side of the isle picks someone more moderate I will vote for him/her and focus my efforts until the next elction on making my conservative friends less moderate so maybe we can get a better guy next time.





People need to realize that this country is SPLIT in ideology.  If you split your half again YOU LOSE.    Try to make your case and sway your side towards your favorite but don't stop fighting the war because you didn't get the general you wanted.
