Why as Americans are we force to vote for this? Is it we have been turned into obedience little Zombies.
We have the right to say no this is not who we want to represent us.
Or have the Socialist taken control of Washington and the two party’s so we cannot say no?

Do you believe Romney to be a conservative or just someone who will say anything to get elected?

Romney is a hell of a lot more conservative than Obama and they are the choices. I'll be voting for Romney and supporting him financially.
Most of the conservatives on this tread will take anyone no matter how much they lie or do not agree with their politics, just because they hate Obama.
Romney is the one the majority of republicans voted for to represent their views. Evidently Mitt is the best republican in America willing to run the country.

Now if you have a third party candidate you like, feel free to vote for and promote others to do likewise.

This may come as a shock to you Mike, but nobody on here left or right cares about your views on religion or mine. If you don't believe in God, you don't believe. No one on here is going to beg you to believe. If some on here believe in God, why do you think it's your goal in life to show them why they shouldn't. Aren't you content with you not believing whether anyone else agrees with you?
I wished an atheist had told me what I am saying to you guys many, many years ago. I am actually a bit pissed off no one told me sooner.
America is so damned PC about talking religion that I never even was told an alternative to religion. Thus I had no choice.
I do not demand you change. I just wish to enlighten people to the alternative. I think it is a good alternative. Human nature gives us the instinct to pass on our values to others.
Just as billions of Christians make it a goal to pass on their religion to others. Do you condemn anyone who does this?
Would you say missionaries are bad for doing what they do?

I believe others religious beliefs often dictate what politics they subscribe to. Thus it is directly tied to what we discuss on this forum.

In NC citizens just voted on civil rights of homosexuals. They voted against them having equal rights. This was mostly due to the religious beliefs of the voters.

I am appalled at the actions the religious have taken in our state.
Thus I have no pity for the institution or the belief. I have no respect for anyone who wishes others to not have rights that do no harm to others such as this.

But of course, I have explained this all to you many times. Yet for some reason, you do not understand or remember.

Things are not great, but they are not really as bad as you make it sound.
Propaganda from the right paints America as if it were dead.
Here's something else you apparently don't understand, not everyone settles for being mediocre. Some of us don't believe in mediocrity to make those less inadequate feel better about themselves. I guess you think a good week at your bar is making $500? Do you put a limit on the number of patrons frequenting your establisment just to make sure you're not too successful? I question your business acumen if being you can't crasp that "just enough" is not always enough.

I see why you never attended college. One must be able to read and comprehend without someone telling them what they read. These articles have nothing to do with the mind of a Republican, they have to do with facts.
I am not motivated to analyze these articles with a fine toothed comb to find what you wish me to note.
If you do not care for me or others to see your point, then do not tell us.
Just stick to personally attacking me and leave it at that. As you seem to have no actual good points to make yourself.

I understand and try not to remember, because I don't care about your views on religion. Be pissed off at the atheist because no one told you. They probably have figured out as you have now, no one cares what your "enlightenment". Tell that crap you peddle to someone that cares. There's bound to a drunk or two in your bar you can persuade.

American public schools need to go. They do not promote good discipline or order. They present an environment of lying, dishonesty and ignorance. It does do a good job of provide contact of drugs, laziness and reliance on the state. Drop-out rate is close to 50 percent in some public schools. Some kids are push aside because teachers do not want to take the time with them. Other teacher are more worried about their pay. The ideas of a greater Socialist system.
Before that socialist system, the statistics were even more staggering. Less than ten percent of children went to school at all.
Before any of the socialist programs that you republicans constantly whine about, children were usually working their fingers to the bone in factories or on a farm. Often dying in the process. Often losing limbs, often living on the streets.
Now go back to your 'good old days' dreamland.

America will not give up public schools just because you see the past with rose colored glasses.

Your way has been tried and it failed. No, you cannot have a second chance.

Geez Mike, since you can't comprehend two articls about 3 pages long, let me help. Obama signed off on Solyndra in his "initiative programs", supported it, even said it was doing good and it went belly up. John Corzine, the mess fixer, per Obama, "lost" scads of money and Obama still can't say he and his administration royally screwed the taxpayers, just as some of the bank bailouts did.

Wait,so the most liberal, state in the union voted for a republican governor? America must be a really conservative country if this is true.

And this compares to Bain and Mitt how?

I already knew all that. Thanks for wasting my time as usual.

I asked how it compares? Let me repeat seeing as how you do not seem to know what I dispute, how does it compare?

<quoted text>Romney created or saved far more jobs than he eliminated at Bain Capital. However, Romeney's main responsibility at Bain Capital was not to create or save jobs but to maximize the return for his investors. Look up the definition of "fiduciary". T, your economic ignorance is profound.
And maximizing returns for investors is not what he needs to do to create jobs in America, as many investors do are not even citizens of America.

And that trickle down theory is not going to cut it.

i ask you guys a second time. How is Romney going to fix this economy, let alone do better than Obama? Dont tell me some half-baked observation about what you think will happen because of obamacare based on loose economic speculation.
He will cut some taxes like Bush did and cut some programs like Bush did and yet they will expect different results than Bush had.
Then when a democrat comes in to try and fix it, they will complain he is not fixing it fast enough for them.
Then the cycle will repeat for eternity.

They also voted for a Republican to fill the "Kennedy seat" in the U.S. Senate. It happens. Please don't tell me what I already know, just refute my points if you can.

<quoted text>Romney has promised tax reform which is badly needed. Our tax code is hugely complex and and inefficent at its core purpose which is to collect revenue. Every time a Republican president has agreed to raise taxes in exchange for spending cuts, the tax increases happened but the spending cuts did not. It happened to Reagan and to Bush 41. Bush 41's tax increase broke his no new taxes pledge and helped throw us into recession. It also cost him a second term.
So both Bush's put us in a recession? And now you wish to elect another Bush clone?

<quoted text>Ask the Canadians and the British about that Mike. Six month waits to see specialists and even longer waits for elective surgery. Single payer means just that. With that system there is no private alternative.
I have asked, and I keep hearing it is not all true. Yes on elective surgery. So get private insurance to pay private doctors for such. I see no reason this cannot happen. I am guessing most will just do without or wait for that elective surgery instead of paying crazy prices for it as they do now.

But I hear the wait times are not as bad as Rush and you make it out to be.

If I am not doing as well as I wish, I blame myself, not the government.

But the walking contradictions blame the government while they whine about those who ask government to help educate them or have rules about health and safety.

Your post reeks of greed.
