I understand your position, but I still look at it as though it would have been better to vote for whomever you thought was the best of two bads, knowing one of them would be the victor- and based on most of Johnson's positions I would presume the choice would be Romney.

And, while I have never been a proponent of third parties - thanks Ross Perot for giving us Clinton- it may be time for a third party, but my choice would be the Tea Party splitting off from Republicans. I am in complete agreement with you on the Republican establishment, but that comes from my position as a social and fiscal conservative. They caved from a position of strength last year and gave us the sequestration agreement, which somehow those of us "common folk" knew from the get-go was a mistake for the Republicans. Let's see, if we don't reach an agreement, taxes go up and Defense gets cut - sounds like a win/win for Democrats, where is the incentive to bargain? And I have yet to see Boehner truly display a backbone when push came to shove - maybe he'll surprise me yet. Would a Tea Party third party come to "power" anytime soon? No, but what does it matter if Republicans that do get elected go wishy-washy.

Sorry, but your assessment of Romney is way off base. First off, Nixon is not the quintessential Republican as far as the base is concerned. He was a typical moderate. Regrettably, he would fit in with our "establishment" Republicans. And come on, "sinister gleam". I think there are so many stories that have come out about his true character and what he has done to help people - he is just one who prefers to do his good works in private, I respect that.

Jimmy Carter - I used to believe he was a decent man who unfortunately was simply incompetent. However, his words and actions over the last decade have ripped that "nice" facade off entirely. And I wish Obama were as incompetent as Carter, unfortunately with the sycophantic media covering his tail every time something goes wrong (fast and furious, Benghazi, and the true nature of Obamacare as examples) we are now stuck with him for four more years - and there is a lot of damage he can do in that time.

So while I may be beginning to agree on a third party, you and I are far apart on which party we wish to see develop. I don't see us ever agreeing, but I do enjoy reading your point of view.

In my opinion America needs a strong leader from a political party that isn't corrupt yet.

It can lean to either right or left, as I see values in both side I agree with, as long as he/it makes "the trains run on time".

I love this. It's like you have had your head buried in the sand for months.

If you really believe that, I have some land in the Everglades I would like to show you.

It does make a good scare tactic though; but it ain't gonna happen.

Excuse me but taxes are going to go up Jan 1st or 2nd. Bushes taxes breaks run out. EVERYONE'S taxes are going up. Doesn't anyone watch the national news? The House, Senate and President are just willing to let it happen. The Prez is in Hawaii and God knows where the rest of them are. Someone on Fox today said their staffs are busy though hashing all this out. I call them lackeys myself. Now doesn't that just warm you're heart to know the people we all put into office aren't even concerned enough to be doing the work themselves but letting God knows who do it for them.

I see (and agree with) your point, but I would just clarify one thing: taxes are going up on everyone who actually pays federal income tax. In 2011, 46% of the population paid no federal income tax.

That is the biggest part of your problem, "Watching the News"

Taxes are no more going up than the sea level is going down. You (et al) have been whipped into a frenzy by the news media.

This will all be settled when Boehner gets through with his grandstanding, after all his job is on the line.(Along with everyone else up there in DC)

And many of them received a tax return even though they paid no Federal tax.

I am TRULY amazed how someone I've never met can tell what I value and what I don't value. Once again, you're full of $hit, but no one's surprised. And, to tell someone they have NO right to say something, well, what I'm about to type will probably be wasted on you, you won't be able to comprehend it...
Oh yeah, you're probably "Einstein" from a year or so ago...
Go back a bit of time in Topix (if you can figure out how to do that) and see that I was the poster telling people voting for someone that has no rational chance of winning was wasting their vote, akin to voting "present" as the POTUSA did in the Senate MANY times. If you would have seen those posts, you'd see how "low information" you are.
I am certainly not a liberal (I can think for myself, don't need to live off the government teat and believe we are responsible for ourselves) and not conservative enough to be a Republican. I disagree with them them on several things, including religion and abortion.
If that isn't enough to "help" you figure things out, read this part REAL SLOW so it will sink in:
Romney was not my 1st choice for the Republicans. Nor my second. Probably not my 3rd, but most everyone else was gone by then. Anyone who had a reasonable chance that was running against BO would have received my vote.
I voted FOR Romney, but MY vote was a vote against BO, because I knew that Gary Johnson did not have a chance of winning. Same thing happened in the 2008 election.
'nuff said.
Your values are obvious, how do I know, I have read your postings. Everthing starts with you, ends with you and is all about you, nuff said.

The biggest problem is people who think they have some inside connection to news that no one else can get. Some inside track or special info when the fact of the matter is you are full of sh1t.
President Bush and Congress enacted tax cuts in both 2001 and 2003. Additional cuts were enacted in 2003 to stimulate the economy from the 2002-2003 recession. But because these tax cuts were approved along party-line votes using the budget reconciliation process, they could only be enacted for 10 years.(Senate rules state that legislation that increases the deficit for more than 10 years requires a 60-vote majority to pass.) In 2010, the cuts were extended for two more years as part of a compromise that led to temporary payroll tax cuts and extended unemployment benefits. But they are set to expire once again in 2013. Everyone in Washington is in agreement that the tax cuts for those outside the top tax bracket should be extended, but absent a deal, every working American will be hit with a marginal tax rate increase of 5% on average
