    Not to mention, any politician trying to run for President and take actions in 2012 in the same fashion as in 1980 SHOULD be drummed out of the party because they'd be suffering from the same delusional notion that many liberals do when arguing about Reagan....that somehow the political climate and situation is the same now as it was in 1980.
    The GOP of GWB was much closer to the GOP of Reagan than today....it was with GWB that the evangelicals really started to make their move to push the party to the right. Even McCain saw this and sold his integrity out to appeal to the party which hurt him greatly with independents and moderates. He was once seen as a "Maverick" however, he clearly lost that in 2008...picking Palin was icing on the cake. Post McCain, the evangelicals have pushed harder and harder to gain control of the party and as a result the GOP of today is much further right-wing than it was even in 2008....which is why we have seen the bitter split in the party during this primary season. Romney is going to get the nominee with substantial less than 50% of the backing of the GOP base. The only reason Romney becomes the nominee is because the evangelical vote was split....

    So if you wanna talk about "context" you need to take all of that into consideration as well.

    I'm sure no-one is surprised that I'll vote for Obama.

    If Romney turns out to be the best the Repubs can do, they're in for a major shock come November, which, of course, includes in Congress.

    Maybe the Repubs didn't really think Obama was beatable, and thus, like the Dems in 2004, they've served up a "Kerry" to the national sacrifice to spare the futures of more preferable candidates .. so I wonder now who the Repubs' "Obama/Hillary" will be in 2016.

    Regardless, I likely won't vote for either this fall, as neither reflects a commitment to do right by the vast majority of Americans to do all that can possibly be done to bring America and the great majority of its citizens back from the brink of being outsourced into wage-slaver economic oblivion.

    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    Both of them are equally irritating demagogues, in my opinion.

    You've got a better shot with Obama doing that...or at least trying....than Romney who has a clearly defined history of dismantling US companies and sending jobs overseas.

    I thought about not voting but everything about Romney is a fraud. The guy just can't be trusted as far as I'm concerned and if he chooses Paul Ryan as a running mate who wants to abolish medicare I'm definately voting Obama. At this point its either no vote or Obama.

    That's pretty much my thinking (except for the part about considering voting for Romney). Fortunately I live in California, so not voting amounts to supporting Obama. That fact really simplified my decision to not vote.

    There are only two horses in the race that have a chance of winning, and which one would you rather have a liberal Democrat, or a moderate Republican?
    Romney is no moderate and he never had a chance of winning.He is the 2012 version of John Kerry.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I can't believe people can look at the past 3+ years with the current administration and see that it has done anything that warrants more time in office.

    Romney isn't much better. At most he will MIGHT slow down the slide we are on, but it's still going to go that direction, since realistically there isn't all that much difference between the two big parties.

    Since I find not voting to be a show of cowardice and shirking of what I consider to be one's civic duty, I have little choice but to vote for Romney and hope he isn't as bad as I think.


    edit - the poll results are interesting. It certainly verifies what I have come to believe by reading many threads here.
