    No, I voted for the better option and someone who actually had a chance to be President. You wasted your vote and that gave us Obama. Romney implemented a state program and you have no idea what he would have done as President. He believes in states' rights as do I

    The new Republican Party tag line should be "The Lesser of Two of Evils"

    It does seem in quite a lot a races that is what choices the Republicans and Democrats give us, the lesser of two evils or the least worst candidate. I will only add that even when the least worst candidate wins, we are left with a bad winner. I will not vote for the least worst candidate, I will vote third party first as I do not want a hand in sending a bad winner to Washington D.C.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I don't you know that you can have any idea what the founding fathers would have thought about health care.

    No, because there's hardly ever such a thing as voting for the "good guy" in true believer talk. Not even Lincoln could fit that bill, because he was still either the tyrant or the capitulator to the Democrats and Radical Republicans, respectively. Secondly, Washington's ways are set because it works. Third, that's not so bad.

    That's why third party voters (and many of the public) are so hopeless. They believe in fantasies like this.

    Embrace the machine. It's good for you.

    You are going to have to do better then "Perhaps you are telling the truth".

    In other news, those who signed up for Obamacare are as happy with it as those with regular private insurance.
    My state is not one of the states that expanded Medicaid. And your claim that those who signed up for obamacare are as happy as those with private insurance is baloney. Most of them lost their doctors and ended up with a very limited network.

    History is laughing at you. People like you go so far to call him a tyrant, and yet:

    1) He's done nothing illegal
    2) The economy has steadily grown since he's been in office (albeit it started about as low as it could get)
    3) He killed Osama bin Laden
    4) He's been insanely aggressive against terrorism
    5) He hasn't raised taxes

    Yes, you didn't get everything you want out of the executive branch for the past 6 years, but to freak out like he's Stalin, that's insane. Most things he would have wanted to do, he couldn't do because of the obstructionist Congress. So relax and grow up, buddy.

    The same thing that they thought about education - that it should not be a federal gov't matter. Simply because something is "important" does not make it a federal government matter.
