    But if they lose this election, the Right Wing will split.



    I agree that they will feel lost for a long time but I am not sure if the party will split. I don't see that coming, but they kind of deserve a swift kick in the ass. I used to like the GOP. But the fact that their strategy was to do nothing at all and just block everything Obama did, was a selfish, Anti American political position. Though seeing them suddenly love the Constitution despite their silence when GW said it was "just a piece of paper" was king of amusing.

    The real story is how many who have voted Republican in the past will sit this one out or vote third party.

    It would have been interesting if this poll had an option for a third party vote.

    That right there is a fundamental flaw in logic. I am not simply concerned with this election, I am concerned with long term effects. When I vote for who represents me best, regardless of their chances of winning, it gives that party more attention in future campaigns. Right now our idiotic media provides zero attention to anyone but the childish GOP and Democrats who are like children in a mud fight. The higher the percentage of the population who is tired of these clowns, the more attention they can receive, and the less ignorant Americans can remain to the real issues.

    When I vote for the Libertarian party, my vote doesn't die at this election, it continues on to further my ideals. I consider this a much better alternative than voting for Bush 2.0 or Lenin 2.0.

    Or, as I explained, I'm voting for candidates who accurately represent my beliefs, and not voting for those who don't. I'm sure Obama is your savior leading you to a liberal utopia, so you must know how I feel then?

    I was willing to listen to your arguments, but you have to have a PhD to lodge a complaint.

    Yeah, sometimes they are lying. Other times, they aren't. I'm not. Sorry kid, you're not in my league.

    I've met hundreds...thousands, of people without PhDs who were completely clueless. Who is more likely to be clueless? The under educated or the over educated?

    Do you realize how hilarious this is? You assume they are one of the "snotty" people. Comeon, try to use your brain here. You're throwing his arguments out because you're making an assumption that would allow you to throw out the arguments. You just want to throw away the argument because you don't want to entertain it so you've made up complete horse **** here to make some excuse to throw away an argument. Pathetic.

    I think perchance you are just insecure and lashing out against those whom have proven their intellectual worth. It's not being "snotty", it's just a statement of fact. Some people are great athletes, some are great bosses, some are great thinkers. If Pavel Datsyuk came up to me and said "I'm a better athlete than you, sorry you're not in my league"; that's not him being snotty, that's a statement of fact.
