At this point I will hold my nose a vote for the most likely to beat Obama.

When a GOP candidate is official, I will vote GOP.

Interpreting your words, you don't like Romney, but are willing to vote for him. Not a good, sane, rationale reason for casting a vote.

Ah Glitter, I thought you were my pal......

Your interpretation of my words is only partially correct.

Let me be specific…

I am a conservative.

Currently there is not a candidate that I am impressed by, however…

I will vote for a RINO as I would rather have a Democrat in office than a Marxist.

Michael Moore, the Unions and the Democratic Party are trying to help Rick Santorum win on Super Tuesday by sending auto messages to Democrats and Independents letting them know to switch party affiliation from Democrat to Republican, so they can vote for Rick Santorum to face Barack Obama in November, due to the fact that Rick Santorum would be an easier candidate to defeat! Michael Moore, the Unions and the Democratic Party did the same thing in Michigan and Arizona, and now they are doing it in Ohio! This has been discussed on CNN and Fox News! Think about it! Why would Michael Moore, the Unions and the Democratic Party be spending money to help Rick Santorum win??? Think People! The Democrats are trying to help Obama by providing him with the easiest possible candidate to defeat! Obama is raising $1 billion for reelection, and facing Rick Santorum who is broke financially, would be an easy challenge! Mitt Romney and his Super PACS have more money than god, he can match Obama dollar per dollar and Obama cannot match the number of negative ads that will be thrown at him by Mitt Romneys Super PACS! That scares the living hell out of Obama, Michael Moore, the Unions and the National Democratic Party!

You're missing the "argument". Romney nor Obama are the way to go. Neither party has the people's best interest in heart. Whether at the local, Coleman; State, Kasich; or national level, there is only one issue on their mind, themselves. I personally find that voting strict party lines is what has contributed to us being in this mess. Contrary to how I portray myself on this forum, I'm fairly conservative (stop laughing), but also have a liberal side to me. My liberal side just shows more based on the threads. My point, voting GOP, RINO, just because it's not Dem, makes me shake my head. That is exactly what is wrong with this country. Can we just play nice and compromise? My answer is no, we are so divided that it hurts. We forgot how to share the Tonka truck and sing Kumbaya.

Glitter,
My point is simple……
I have 2 options, no more, no less,
vote for Obama or the GOP candidate.
There is no chance of a third party candidate being elected. My choice is not made on party lines as I am an Independent.
For me, another term for Obama is not acceptable. If Obama where running as a Republican I would still vote….(Anybody but Obama)

We are agreeing on this. For some reason you're missing my point. Voting out one weasel to put another weasel in office isn't going to solve anything. Maybe, instead of us saying a third party candidate can't cut the mustard, as Americans we need to say enough is enough. All of a sudden Barbra Steisand came in my head, I can't go on, I can't go on.

LOL

As soon as you can show me a viable third party candidate we will talk.
I would love to see one.
I am not missing your point. With respect, at this point in history
I just do not see any other option.

I actually disagree with the ability to vote for a third-party candidate. If enough people (say, a couple million) came together to start supporting third-party candidacy, the effort could grow. Then again, I also believe in public campaign financing, which levels the playing field but the right are against that as well.

yu have the ability to bote for a third party candidated; if you choose not to....welll....

Oh and side-note to Jimmy Soprano -- that "method" was only used in the Michigan primary as Michigan has an open primary meaning that people don't have to vote party lines -- this is not the case in Ohio so please quit spreading the lie that this is some large movement going to all the primary states. Matter of fact, it's a strategy that Mittens has employed and endorsed in years past in order to get a lesser delegate on par with the top candidate. It's a shrewd and astute political move, not a conspiracy. Obama's campaign is not concerned with either Willard or the Sanitorium..

Agree, but as I do I just ruminated. We need to change history. Tea Party, sorry, sucks; OWS, sorry, sucks. Why do you think the Independents are so important? Washington needs to get it together or get out.

Third parth as in the communist socialist or green party? Libertarian? Constitution? So far nothing from the libertarian or constitution party to make me vote for them. So for me it is whichever republican even if a R.I.N.O. over the bastard marxist closet gay muslim Hussein Obama.
I just want someone that isn't a flip-flopper, stays true to their convictions. I'll vote, which in my opinion allows me to kvetch. That being said, I'm tired of the establishment. GOP card carrier, conservative, Dem, Catholic, Presbyterian, Lutheran, liberal. It's okay for them to take our money, but I have to pay for it. You, Spook talk out of both sides of your mouth. You don't want more taxes, nor do I. Let's start with retirement plans and healthcare for the individuals that enact said laws and we elect.

Yes you can vote for a third party candidate...

A recent history example of a third party candidate is Ross Perot.
result: siphoning off conservative votes / Bill Clinton

Assuming Ross Perot had not been in the race his roughly 20,000,000 votes would most likely have been cast for Bush, quickly doing the math Bush would have won.

William Clinton Albert Gore Jr. Democratic 44,909,806 43.01% 370 68.8%

George Bush J. Danforth Quayle Republican 39,104,550 37.45% 168 31.2%

H. Ross Perot James Stockdale Independent 19,743,821 18.91% 0 0.0%

Given your Nom de plume I would guess that would have been fine with you.
I frankly would like to see Hillary Clinton run as a third party candidate in this election.

I would like to take this opportunity to urge Democrats to write in Hillary Clinton for President.(Go Hilary)

Independent voter, but totally agree. She know the ins and outs, diplomacy, what a first husband, former POTUS. She should challenge, but that will never happen.

I guess you missed my sarcasm; Hillary would divide the Liberal vote and assure a GOP victory.
I would however even vote for Hillary over Obama. If you watch the news, Bill Clinton just came out in favor of the Keystone pipeline. If Hillary was not a mouthpiece currently for Obama I believe she would have approved it.

Believe me, Obama fears Mitt Romney, or at least Mitt Romney's Money, resources, political connections, organizational ground game and his cut throat Super PACS! Even Bill Maher admitted that there is a good chance Mitt Romney can defeat Obama! Bill Maher??? If Barack Obama has $1billion for reelection and Rick Santorum has a couple of million, how do you think that Rick Santorum has a chance in hell to withstand the onslaught of negative ads Obama will throw his way, if Santorum becomes the Republican Nominee???????? If you want to hand Obama the next 4 years as President on a silver platter by serving up Rick Santorum as the sacrificial lamb, as the Democrats gather around laughing at Rick Santorum getting his ass handed to him, be my guest!
