    Well, that would be foolish, and IMHO allowing the progressive machine determine the course of the GOP. So IOW, if some damned fool is dumb enough to abandon the GOP because some liberal makes them ponder a false choice when there are immediate problems to deal with shouldn't be there to begin with.

    Oh, say no more. I was wrong. You leaving the GOP means the GOP is certainly done for.

    Sorry, Mate, I don't allow my views and vote to be controlled via fear tactics and extortion. If all the GOP got is "vote for us or the Democrats will win, then they have done nothing to earn my interest or vote

    Are you intentionally misreading what I wrote? If so, it might help not to directly quote me in the future

    1) I'm a moderate conservative, so not much a fan of Ron Paul

    2) while I'm sure Obama will make many decisions that I disagree with in the next 4 years, you will still be here preaching the inevitable doom and destruction that will follow the Democrats taking the POTUS in 2016.

    I hear you. "Numerous conservatives" that you know are abandoning the GOP due to a difference of opinion with others in the GOP. I hope you all find the party where everybody thinks exactly alike that you're looking for.

    Again, with the intentional misreading: I never claimed any party had to think exactly like me, only that I, and others, don't want to be associated with people who find skepticism of evolution a noble and sot after trait in a presidential candidate.

    PS My post is right above you, making these blatant attempts at dishonestly and distortion particularly hilarious.

    What is a moderate conservative?

    2) while I'm sure Obama will make many decisions that I disagree with in the next 4 years, you will still be here preaching the inevitable doom and destruction that will follow the Democrats taking the POTUS in 2016.
    So you think things are going ok under Obama?
