Romney has my vote.
GARY JOHNSON 2016
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
why are you in a hurry to see this ruse end? When the pretend conservative Bush was in office, he could spend anything he wanted, and the pretend politicians would pretend all that excess spending was conservative. Wasn't that just a wonderful world of make believe?
Hey, maybe if we pretend that Romney is a conservative, we can also pretend that his appointees will be conservative. I see many conservatives still pretend Reagan was the perfect conservative, ignoring the ridiculous spending of his administration is one thing, but they seem to forget about that Kennedy selection too.
So you get that everyone. Make sure to vote conservative, we would hate to lose by seeing Obama overspend and appoint some Kennedy clone to the bench.
I would have appreciated more poll options. Like, "I am not legally allowed to vote in the US Presidentials, but would vote for candidate X".
