    Neither the dems or the GOP are happy with who is running, and with good reason. Obama is no where near a true liberal, and Romney is no where near a true conservative. Its a role they play at election time, nothing more. Both are progressive corprratists who are simply licking the hands that give them cash and or elect them. Nothing more. The U.S. loses big time with either of them.

    There isn't enough difference between them or the parties. I agree with that.

    And these hard times are a direct consequence of Barry Obama and his ideas of redistributing wealth and 'social justice'.

    Of course the leftists didn't see this coming, or perhaps don't really care, but I feel those in the middle have it all figured out by now and will correct the serious error they made in the last election.

    Whether I realized it or not is not the point. You said something incorrect.

    And no, no president, not Obama, not Bush, controls the economy. You give them too much credit and too much blame. It's a fools game.

    Ron Paul is a better choice than Romney.

    Mitt Romney has a liberal track record.

    Ron Paul would never support RomneyCare/ObamaCare.

    Romney created RomneyCare before Obama created ObamaCare.

    But Obama wants to make it 50 times worse. Romney doesn't.

    Yes, I prefer Paul over Romney. And I prefer a single payer (two teired system) over current healthcare reform. The public option was a better choice. Paul is not a perfect candidate. Being better than Romney is not saying that much. It was a very weak republican field. The only chance republicans have is to paint Obama worse than he is.

    If we think ObamaCare/RomneyCare is a bad idea, they why are we nominating Romney?
