I will write in Ron Paul and I will know who I am voting for. You on the other hand do not and you don't have the slightest idea what Mittens and Ryand stand for. If you don't believe it look at the one issue of abortion since last night. Romney has hauled butt 180 degrees from the GOP platform and the current GOP stalwarts. And the clock watch aint even started yet. You fruit cakes that have signed on to these two or Obama better learn how to grow a garden.

As we have discussed many times before. A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama.

When you write in Paul, you will know who you are really voting for alright. You are voting for Obama.

Look you just don't understand people with convictions. You are a bunch of lemmings and you will run right over the clift. You should read the small tome Jonathon Livingston Seagull. In condensed form the moral is that there are seagulls who are willing to sit on the dock and wait for the scrap and chum to survive. While others are willing to pursue goals, convictions and plans to win a better meal. You guys just sit around the dock with the scrummy GOP accepting whatever they give you. You'll always be that chorusline for the mediocre. Too bad. Ron Paul for President you bunch of lizards.

I think I will write in Chipper Jones for president. He has just as good of a chance of winning as FryarTuk's choice.

Even Ron Paul's own SON has the sense to endorse Romney/Ryan as we saw last night. Not so for the Paulbots.

Not if everyone gets out and votes. This election needs better than a 75% turn-out to assure Obahma's removal.

The chains. There are other ways to add chains than around the legs. If he gets re elected you will see the change. Welfare is not on his agenda and the changes he made to it will be gone. Money is what he wants and the purse stings will close. Get ready Albany and see how Medicaid will be cut to the bones. If you are young enough to work, then get your big panties on because you are going to need them while you are hunting for a job.

When I was stationed in Germany the last time our S-3 officer was a black guy named Williams. He was a major and a pretty good officer. I had dealings with him often in my position and socially at the battalion functions. He was always polite and well spoken. I would see him interacting with the lower ranking enlisted men, especially the young blacks. He spoke their language. This was in the late '70s and there was a difference between the way whites and blacks talked to one another. I always wondered, was he fooling us (the white officers) or them (the black troops). Maybe it wasn't important because he got along well with both groups and got his promotion to Lt. Colonel. Sort of like Mitt Romney. When he was running for governor of Mass. he came across as a very moderate Republican. Now, as the top of the GOP ticket, he is trying to sound as conservative as Newt. Which is it? Is he fooling the republicans or was he fooling the democrats in Mass? We really won't know till he is elected...

If that happens.

You have hit the nail squarely on the well coifed head. After he was governor of MA he ran for the US Senate against the Hero of Chappaquiddick and he ran to the left of Teddy. Denounced Regan, declared allegiance to Mondale and Carter, supported abortion, civil unions, etc., etc. Now he has signed on Paul Ryand, described by Newtie as the author of right wing social engineering. What a choice between the Gilded Governor, missionary to France and Barry O., well known as a community organizer.

I don't guess you've ever changed your mind on an issue, huh?

Jimboob 1 year, 7 months ago

You know, sometimes, as more facts are learned, changing your mind on a position is understandable. I was once a republican. Voted for RR and Papa George. Then the conservatives took over the party and I learned. Mitt didn't just change his position on an issue, he changed his entire belief system... Or did he?

He did he's a chameleon. A lizard.

And Ron Paul's SON endorsed Romney/Ryan last night.

Changed my mind... I have changed my mind before. I once was a democrat. A "Yellow Dog" democrat. But I believed that they no longer represented my views on the issues that were important to me so I changed to the republicans. I voted for RR and Papa Bush. When the conservative wing took control of the party I left because they no longer represented my views on the issues. That makes me a moderate. Mitt went from a gun control pro-choice moderate as governor of Mass. to a no control pro-life candidate for the GOP. That isn't changing your mind. That's either selling out or telling them anything to get their vote.

Ron Paul believes we should go back to being isolationists. That worked real well in the 1920s and 30s didn't it. Maybe you don't know, if so, you need to read more. It would be like locking yourself in your house and when gunfights start outside you start yelling "I'm OK so Far!!!". We cannot abandon those military installations worldwide. It is foolish, or as Bugs Bunny would say about Ron Paul, "What a Maroon".

Red, Ron Paul believes in staking international claims where our interests are pre-eminent and in fighting wars worth fighting. He was the only veteran in the damned race. He was the only one with combat experience in the mideast. We should never have fought the wars that Bush, Cheney, Rummy, Turd Blossom, Wolfie and Powell put us into. They all should have been tried for treason. This crap about sending our men and women and all of our financial resources for nation building is unAmerican. George Washington admonished us to beware of foreign entanglements but George Bush jumped into every international skirmish he could spend 10,000 American lives on. He strutted across a battle ship like a bantum rooster proclaiming mission accomplished. My butt, he's a white knuckle alcoholic who should face the lash for sending so many Americans to their deaths and disfigurement.

Isolationism worked well until WW1, WW2, etc. We would all be speaking Japanese or German right now if Ron Paul was President in 1940.
