Have you seen the newspapers? Romney and the Republicans lost the election... don't you think there might be a reason why that was?
Ignorance, the liberal left wing media, and a growing number of people dependent on government. It is the grand plan of the democrats / socialists.

Thanks for the info, that makes sense.

Most of you seem not to realize that it wasn't long ago that the Republican Party had a liberal wing that centered around men like Nelson Rockerfeller, a broad, moderate center represented by men like Eisenhower, Nixon and even Reagan, and it had a right-wing fringe represented best by Goldwater.

The Democratic Party embraced the Southern Democrats, Bible-thumping white men who supported slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, the KKK and general narrow-mindedness. It is these Dixiecrats that migrated to the GOP displacing both the liberal wing and the moderate center of that party.

Now all that is left of the GOP is an extreme right-wing faction that is further to the right than even Goldwater. Don't think for a second that they represent Republican values.

How pathetically misinformed you are. Most "maker" states are blue and most of the "taker" states are red. So, those food stamp funds you red states receive are mostly paid for by union labor.
An honest days pay for an honest days work is all a patriotic American endeavors. The, so called, conservative extremist regime wants to "chinatize" America as in "right to work (for less)" states are known for. Labor is under appreciated causing more illegal immigration.
We used to protect our technology and manufacturing techniques but now it is all sold to places like China via companies like Romneys' Bain Capital.
Free trade is not equated to anti patriotism, nor is capitalism equated to monopolization. Where is the patriotism of the large corporations that this country made possible? As, in oil companies that ship in large tankers of oil, we, the American tax payer, pay our military to protect those shipping lanes while the large corporate oil companies receive government subsidies neither asked for nor deserved.(just one example)
Now, who is the one who is more ignorant?
Really, open your eyes and become a true advocate for democracy and global fair trade for the future of The United States of America.

AND the president we have now is an extreme left wing. Apparently, he DOES represent the democrat values.

True, Synergy... and just for the record and those out there who don't know me, I rejected both Republican and Democrat this year and voted for third party candidate Gary Johnson.

Gary Johnson got the most votes of any Libertarian candidate, going all the way back to 1980, so things are looking good for 2016.

As Johnson says:

"A wasted vote is voting for somebody you don't believe in and there were a lot of wasted votes tonight. There were more wasted votes tonight than I've ever seen. We all should be proud of ourselves because over the next four years none of us are gonna have to say we are responsible for this. I didn't vote for either one of 'em, I voted for Gary Johnson," Gary Johnson said.

Exactly.

My apologies if my response seemed snippey, it was the third time I wrote it (it kept not posting)and I was frustrated. As I told you earlier, I looked at Gary Johnson's website and I found things I definitely agreed with. However, while I understand the purpose of what amounted to a protest vote (and I do not mean that in any way as a slight) I consider this election to have been too important to waste your vote on a man who could not get elected. Given the two other options, it just seemed apparent to me that Romney was far closer to Johnson's positions overall than Obama.

The democrats won the election for prez and think they know what needs to be done to "fix" the republicans.
After 4 mores years of Obama and his economic ineptness, you are going to see the most far right Republican ever run for prez and win, when the pendulum swings back the other way it will always go even farther.
America has never had such a leftwing President as we do right now. The scary part is that he has four more years to competely finish what was started in 2007 when Harry and Nancy took over the leadership of the House and Senate. The RNC has put up two liberal lite canidates in Mccain and Romney and Christie appears to be the early front runner. Christie Cried after meeting and getting to hug the Boss (Springsteen). If that is the case then we will lose again in 2016 provided that there will be a America in 2016. Just moving to the right would be a postive, we have tried liberal lite and it ain't working.

Granted that 2016 is a long way away in political terms, I think Christie may have ruined himself in the eyes of many Republicans with his ridiculously over-the-top praise for Obama.

I don't consider my vote for Johnson wasted. I thought GA. would go for Romney so I voted my conscious. If that helps support a third party and more choices than the status quo, it was not wasted

No, the problems with Romney and McCain before him were more than just what you describe above... bottom line is that these candidates you Republicans keep picking either don't appeal to the American majority or outright iffend them... or both.

Now I'm not so familiar with Christie, but if he's a fellow Bruce Springsteen fan as I am, then that's a great start.

I reckon that might Scotch the deal with the die-hard Right Wingers, but those are the types that will continue to hold the Republican party down, in my opinion... too many American voters are turned off by that gritted teeth, bleary eyed Sgt Rock image... just a thought, but maybe ya'll should consider a bit more of a "kinder, gentler" American leader... find someone with more of a Ronald Reagan, everyman charm rather than some creey, sneaky looking religious nut in disguise?

Just a thought from a Third Party guy who has turned against BOTH Republican and Democratic cliches.

You think you voted for Gary, but you really cast a half vote for Obama. Maybe you are young enough to be one of those put in servitude to pay down the debt. I will be long gone. Good luck, best wishes.
