And by the way, I believe that the issue that Kosmic is raising has to do with folks who claim not to be Republican (calling themselves Independent) who vote nothing but a straight Republican ticket.

Unless you are a partisan elected official, or a party committeeman, you are not a "Republican" or "Democrat" as there is no registration in Ohio.
I voted for one D at the local level, due to an R with tax law problems.
Not so, Karl. You declare yourself a member of a political party in Ohio during primaries when you have to request a ballot for one of the parties or an issues only ballot. If you take a Republican ballot, you are considered a republican.

I believe that all of them - with the exception of Enzyte Bob - made clear that the vote they were casting was not FOR Romney, but AGAINST the sitting Democrat. They have every right to go that direction as you did yours.
Revise history all you'd like. Keep in mind that their words are never true, their actions speak with veracity.

A vote against someone equals a vote for someone else, no matter how you word it. One who consistently promotes and votes for Republicans is a Republican, no matter their denial. Some claim to be independent while others claim conservative. The problem is, they've never supported or voted for either. It's rather difficult to vote for a conservative since there is never one on the Ohio ballot.

Ole Zero, for example, claimed for quite awhile he was going to vote for the barely known entity, Herman Cain. Even though Cain barely had any plans, let alone workable ones, I would have respected Zero had he voted that way. Nope, by early October he was in full support of Romney. The universal healthcare providing, tax raising, abortion favoring Romney.

He claimed he couldn't vote for Libertarians because they firmly take no political side on that subject. It is not a subject for government concern. Yet he voted for a pro-abortionist.

Good luck defending those who wish to live under the yoke of fascism.

Not so sure why the scenario is so hard for some folks to understand frankly......
A feel good "protest vote" in the last election was the equivalent of voting FOR the incumbent......
If any 3rd party would have had the slightest chance of winning it would have been a different story.
The lesser of 2 evils, nothing more nothing less........depending on your political bent it was open to interpretation...
Sucker.

They've already got your mind if you believe that. Thanks for validating my assertions. You are unable to think or act independently.

You vote for the evil of two lessers, that's all you do. And based on your spouted positions, you always vote for the evilest and the least.

You spew out talk of fiscal responsibility, yet favor the one who promises to make our future even more debt ridden. One who implies that while the 1% reaped the benefits, the rest will pay the tab.

Being unemployed and drawing assistance, it seems you vote against your own best interests. Your beloved Republicans want to cut you off cold and give the funds back to the wealthy.

Presidential elections offer the opportunity to change the leadership.
Currently in this nation, a vote for any party other than GOP/Dem accomplishes nothing.
Kosmik is free to support the status quo through his Libertarian vote.
Other Americans sought real, possible change of leadership.
Wish the p#ssy would stop crying about it.
And just what changes in leadership did Mitt offer?

He was nothing more than a white, Mormon version of Obama. Just as liberal, if not moreso and quite beholden to wealth and corporations.

Since you don't believe in the Constitution or it's guarantees, that's going to put you in the real minority if and when something happens. You're going to have to suck right up to the fascists you support in your losing effort.

Hey, give it a shot, we could use the excitement and live target practice.

We are tumbling toward fascism with a Democrat as president, and we've had corporate fascism for decades.

Voting AGAINST a candidate is nothing more than a lazy cop-out. And an easy way to be led down the primrose path. There is, in reality, no such thing as voting against a candidate. One can only vote FOR an opposing candidate.
Recall the ease with which Kasich came to office by not being Strickland. And now we are stuck with him. Really woke a lot of folks up.
Elections have consequences, folks.
It woke them up, all right. Columbus is now the 4th best place to live in the US for work - that would be Columbus, Ohio, under the direction of John Kasich (like him or not).

Right. I'm pretty sure quite a few of Obama's votes in 2008 were because people were voting against Republicans - not because they liked Obama. If you want the statements, they're pretty easy to find on the internet.

Help for what exactly?

You're the delusional vassal who can't see past their chains.

You're the one with a great nothingness for a life and brain.

Envy those who live and seek freedom, that's so not American. You'd fit right in over in China. You seek to be controlled by a totalitarian fascist government who will maybe find you a life mate.

You love big government and everything that goes with it, as long as a liberal, fascist Republican is in charge.

It speeds up when Republicans are in charge. Both parties are fascists. To vote for either is an admission of a willingness to give up more freedoms for perceived security.

Those who voted for Romney wanted the same government that Obama has, they just wanted a white rich fascist in there.

In the Presidential races I've always voted for Libertarians, with one exception. I was one of those who switched and voted for Obama in 2008. I have no trouble admitting that I favored him over McCain and especially that ditz from Alaska.

Obama, as it turned out, was a great campaigner and that's all. He gives away the farm before any negotiation begins and caves way too easily. That's why I didn't vote for him a second time.

Reader is right, to claim one is merely voting 'against' something is a very childish, dishonest way of saying 'I voted for the right wing fascist' We have a forum of very ashamed Republicans on here who still try to spread their decades old threats and fears. Talk about who's really divorced from reality.

To be fair, I think George voted for the other Romney, the one opposed to universal health care, taxes and abortion.

Anybody's guess which one we might have gotten.

Kasich aroused the furor of a lot of right-drifting union members. People frequently take things for granted until they realize what they could lose.

Kasich pretty much had one chance to shoot the moon as far as taking out bargaining rights for public workers. And he blew it.Be a long time before some of those folks trust a Republican again.

People say all kinds of things--particularly on the internet. But the reality is that in the US the only options are to vote FOR someone. Other countries have other options.

It is critical for informed voters to understand this. Otherwise they end up putting someone in office who has not platform other than not being the other guy. Next thing you know he's taking away bargaining rights and calling state troopers idiots.

That's typical for Zero, always preferring what doesn't exist.

I believe that's your game. Libertarian candidates with a chance of winning a national race do not exist. That's why Wayne Allyn Root supported Romney.

Herman Cain didn't exist as a candidate after August 2012. What should one have done, write him in?
