We have a system in this country known as "Primaries". The candidate comes from this system to be the nominee who carries the most support. Maybe your favorite candidate didn't win the Republican primary, but you certainly voted for Romney. Now, you are saying you are not responsible for Romney?
Thank you Arnold for making me aware of what a "primary election" is. What I do without your not so subtle sarcastic wisdom? If my favorite candidate didn't win in the primary and it wasn't Romney would that make me responsible for him being the Republican nominee? I did vote Romney in the general election, so does that make me responsible for him being the Republican nominee? That is the point I was making to TSF. I would have voted for anyone but Obama.

Also, you have the right to accept or reject the party's candidate. You not only accepted Romney, but was vocal for him in debate, and voted for him.
You are so right and I also had the right to reject your party's candidate. Mine lost, yours won. Still wouldn't have voted for Obama. I'm glad I won't be around to pay for all the campaign promises by both parties. Pay day doesn't always come every Friday, but it'll come and there's going to be hell to pay, because the money won't be there.

You Republicans were predicting doom and failure when Obama was elected in 2008, so your second prediction carries no credibility with me either. I will not be sunning in some foreign country if the ship does go down. I will here as a patriotic citizen riding it to the bottom. It is my faith in America and my love for my country that motivates this. I love America, and always will, and will hang through thick and thin.

So, who did you support as the Republican nominee in the 2012 primary? I really don't recall from discussions on Topix. If I remember correctly, you were always for Romney.

What makes me think this is that at that time you were on the Robert Stowe train, and he was a huge Romney man. You agreed with him on every comment and issue.

TSF, I think there's something you're failing to grasp. I'm John Q Public, I don't know anyone that has the money to run for president nor will I ever and I'd venture to say 99% of most people voting don't have the financial capability to run for POTUS. So, you're saying me, a Republican, personally picked Mitt Romney as the Republican candidate and everyone that voted for him? By your own admission you gave pause to not vote for Obama for whatever reason, and I still don't know if you did or didn't; however, why are Republicans like me guilty of being the presenter of an idiot for a candidate? You, Mr. Independent, have a bad habit of lumping everyone into one stereotypical category based off of their affiliation to a political party. Everyone in the Republican party in your eyes are rich, greedy, Bible thumpers, against science and math (it's not I'm against math, I just suck at it), education in general, racists and rednecks. I don't know you, but we both have college degrees, my kid attended private school, yours' didn't but I believe from previous posts by you, your children as mine have done just fine, I'm a christian, I'm not greedy and I'm damn sure I pay my fair share of taxes and probably then some, I'm called a racist because I don't believe anyone of any race should get a perpetual free ride off the back of hard working citizens and the word "illegal immigrant" "undocumented worker" i.e. illegal means they're ILLEGAL, just like murder, driving drunk, speeding etc. The word "illegal" means it's against the law. I didn't make up the meaning, it's right there in the dictionary. The opposite of "legal" is "illegal", get it? Therefore, I think they should enter the country legally and if it takes a while, that's not my problem to pony up and pay benefits for them until it's LEGAL. I might be a redneck, but rest assured I'm not a skank redneck.
Again, they could not be labled undocumented workers if they were not HIRED TO WORK. As I have said before the illegals as you choose to call them are not the only ones breaking the law here. Are the business owners not breaking the law when they hire them knowing they are undocumented? Sure they are. You only want to see the poor dirty side and ignore the rich dirty side.

As I recall,a few people voted for Romney.I don't think all the republicans are disloyal for their votes.Is voting for Obama now a litmus test for patriotism and loyalty? Folks, predicting the demise of the republican party is unwise.There will be another republican president, don't be shocked if that president is a minority, or a woman.Change is the only constant.

If you remember so well, you should be able to recall I said "If I have to hold my nose to vote for Romney I will." I never said who I voted for because I didn't vote. Gingrich had withdrawn.

I do not believe that all republikans are rich, greedy bible thumpers. I do believe that rich greedy republikan leaders deceive the ignorant republikan sheeple with bible thumping and convince them to vote tax breaks for the rich. Now that belief is not all inclusive, because I recognise that there are moral, educated republicans like yourself who have been unable to correct the general rush to corruption by the party leaders. My indictment of right wing nut frat boy republikans does not constitute an endorsement of the left wing nut la-di-da democrats.
I do admit particular dislike for the anti education agenda of republikans because education is what makes people competetive in todays world. Ignorance and stupidity are greater enemies of the USA and our people than all the terrorist, commies, socialist, liberals and other repiublikan boogers.

Aren't you the patriot Arnold? Maybe you can put some music to this post and (and I happen to know a tune...LOL) have you a new patriotic best seller!!! About that tune, I'll want just a small cut because it will go with any song you write about any occasion and well, those tunes are hard to come by!:)

Third time's the charm. After two previous responses from others to my post to you, you answered. Thanks for keeping the cart somewhat between the lines and keeping it real.

Strange. There is no Democrat that I ever had to hold my nose to vote for. If one ever surfaces, I will make another decision of who to vote for.

Old heavens, Jimmy Carter is still stinking up planet Earth. Yes, I voted from him too and I'm so ashamed. I still have the Jimmy Carter voting stench in my nose all these years later. Tell you what, you don't come back from mistakes like that!!! Scarred me for life, nose and all!!

Strange how the Democrats are the real patriots. We can to get things done to improve our country for ALL OF OUR CITIZENS as oppossed to just parading around wearing US flag ties, lapel pins and "talking" the patriot game as we exclude so many groups of people.

Yeah, you guys like to burn the American flag, spit on members of the military, walk around at political functions you oppose dressed like vaginas to show how proud you are of killing unborn babies and are ashamed to have God mentioned in your platform. Now that right there is the sign of a true patriot, OFF THE DEEP END.

And your repub family in New Mexico wants pregnant rape victims to carry children to full term so that they can be carried into court rooms, used as evidence,(Exhibit A). To abort would be considered tampering with the evidence and is a felony offence. OFF THE DEEP END. EXPLOITATION. I don't believe a child need be born in order to gather DNA for prosecution.

When has the Democratic party burned the flag or spit on the military?

Abortion. I still believe in the woman's right to choose, and believe it to be an individual decisiion, and I want most women (like I advised my granddaughter) to have the child.

Now, let's look at Republicans. Scream bloody murder about abortions, and use the claim that 50 million have been aborted in the past 10 to 15 years....yet, Republicans controlled all three Federal Branches of government from 2001 to 2006. What was their effort to finally end abortion in those years? Count them....NONE. So, if your intent was to stop the killing, why did you fail to act during that exceptional time period when you had all the marbles? How many welfare babies would you be screaming about now if all 50 million had been born? You would be having seizures about the welfare roles increasing.
