It just occured to me that since Mitt Romney has the vast majority of politicians endorsing him, that should send up red flags for voters. Would it be too far to make the leap to condisering anyone holding political office is looked on about as favorably as our current U.S. House and Senate? And since they are both enjoying an 11% favorability rating at the present time, that should make voters consider Mitt radioactive.

TRUTH. unless we want the same ole same ole, we need to decde who we as the working class private sector endorse. Why should it be a good thing for John McCain, who chose not to elect, to endorse a canidate? Also, look at campain contributors. So many people are upset with Fannie May and Freddie Mac for demanding bailouts from congress, who supportted the demands without a national vote. Yet these same companies are using at least some of the money they recieved from the bailouts to support the canidates who they know would make laws in their intrests. Its time to decide what is in OUR intrest. Most people want to go to school, find a job, and raise a family, or live3 their lives however they choose but with at least the oppurtunity to do those things. Dont give away to the ideas you already know to have failed. Look up the ideas of these four canidates. The choice is obvious. Vote for Constitional rights. Vote for common sense Vote for Freedom. Vote for Ron Paul!

Unfortunately, I don't think Ron Paul is electable. For that matter, unless Newt got a lot of ground swell going into the general election, as in, call me a honkie, white people being upset enough to defy the polls and propel him into office, he doesn't appear to fare too well in a head to head against Obama. One thing you have to give Newt credit for though is knowing what needs to be done. He was the architect of the "Contract With America", and if the legislation would have been passed into law, we would have saw a new order of business in Washington. Newt being the realist he is though, told everyone up front that all he would do is guarantee each item in the contract would be brought to the floor of the house for a vote, which it was. And afterwards, all but one of the measures was soundly defeated. Just as he knew it would be, and just as we can all be assured any real reform proposed to congress today will be. Seems the politicians are afraid to change the status quo. I think it has to do with the money attached to everything congress deals with, and there isn't very much legislation that gets passed into law that doesn't have money associated to it.

They just said on the radio that Soros has endorsed Romney. What does that tell you all?
