    Which part? If that is true would Romney do better and would Romney tell the truth?

    Urban Dictionary: randroid



    1. randroid
    A follower of Ayn Rand's objectivist philosophy, with emphasis on the more cultic aspects of the movement. Often marked by exclusivist rhetoric, dogmatic individualism, and determinedly narcissistic self-praise.
    That randroid keeps telling everyone how great he is by being "true to himself." Bah.

    2. randroid
    A person of high school age, typically white and invariably born to an upper-class or upper-middle-class family. Will, upon reading Atlas Shrugged at the recomendation of randroid friend, believe their comfortable position in life to be attributed to their own efforts, talents, and imagined superiority, instead of the five to six-figure income of his parent(s).

    If interested in politics, randroids make a point of vocally berating any forms of socialism, not thinking twice of saying people who can't get by without some sort of welfare don't deserve to live, within earshot of students who have after-school jobs out of necesity.

    The randroid affliction sometimes lasts into college, depending on whether or not the afflicted recieved a trust fund from their parent(s). If so, randroids can be identified at this point by their difficulty in holding things with their hands, due to the near-total absence of friction caused by a lack of anything resembling calluses. If not, they cease being randroids by getting a job and a sense of humor.
    That randroid said me and my family was scum when he saw my mom paying with food stamps, so I gave him a swirly.

    This part:

    The only thing I was guaranteed/ entitled to was if I sit on my ass I will become a failure.
    He does not believe that.

    And no, Romney would not do any better.

    I think what he meant was that nobody is given success off the bat. You need to earn it... by taking the opportunities that are given to you, and that america is still the land of opportunity.

    However, it did come out wrong. I think Obama is showing his exhaustion. No surprise seeing as how he has been campaigning for about 2 years already.
    He needs a break. Let's give him one for the rest of his life. Imagine a government job where after 3.5 years one can become worth ten million dollars.

    Romney seemed fresh and full of vigor. If the poor Bamster is tired after all of that golf, parties, fundraising, and campaigning we should give him at least a four year break.

    Everybody does their fair share? What does that mean? To the one term Marxist it means that some should pay the way for the rest.

    Everybody is playing by the same rules...he is a liar, of course, what rules did his campaign contributors play by? He used the taxpayer to enrich his contribution bundlers at our expense.
    There are TWO things wrong with your statement in bold:

    1) As free citizens, we have a right to support whatever candidate we choose. And in so doing, we make volunteer donations to said political candidate and/or campaign and/or party affiliation we so choose. That is enshrined in our Constitution as a voting right.

    2) How soon we forget about SuperPACs.

    I don't really pay much attention to Democrats speaking about success...if you are poor, they want you to be more successful... if you are middle class, they revere and celebrate you... if you are successful, you are just a revenue source who is probably greedy, didn't earn your success ethically, and should probably feel guilty about your success and give your money to the government as penance.
    Nicely put, Thrilla.
