    Obama or Romney... hm, let me see... It's one of those "are you a dumbass or yes" dilemmas.

    Wrong. I'm saying that you are not a Conservative. I'd say at least 75% of what you post in this forum is liberalistic in nature.

    You are what you write. For example: You said you would vote for Obama (a radical liberal) if you thought Romeny had a chance to win. This tells me that you are a liberal, not a Conservative.

    Your political lean is environut and anti-business. You, a Conservative? No way in hell. You are a tree worshipper and a Wall Street Occupant.

    Am I conservative enough to want to protect the environment that nourishes us as a species. Yes! That's anti Republican. Am I a tree hugger. Hell, yes, I told you I'm a Green. Do I want to see the power and influence of Corporations in the USA restrained. Yes! That's anti Republican and anti Plutocracy and anti Oligarchy! Republicans are a radical and I repeat, RADICAL, pro Corporate ideology dedicated to protecting the status quo of Big Money, like "let's give the tax breaks to the wealthy and they will do good things for the needs of the general populace." Yeh! Like maybe buying an island off Aruba to escape the squalor. I seek a nice balanced conservative policy that benefits all, today and tomorrow. Not short-sighted and radical protectionism, war, pollution, and poverty that is endemic to Republican politics. I'm pretty damned Conservative.

    Romney is the only candidate available that might be able to defeat Obama. Some other candidates may be more desirable if I knew their whole platform, but defeating Obama has to take priority and since they cannot do it, I must go for Romney.

    I will Vote for only a single Incumbent. My Representative, I would even vote against him if the opposing candidates resume didn't read like a how-to to become a welfare liberal. A more moderate Dem would of gotten my vote, but one didn't volunteer to run. The libertarian candidate didn't campaign that I saw and I have not found any information concerning him, other than a name that is supposedly running.

    Re: Presidential Election: Who are you voting for or might/could you vote for?

    I've been legitimately undecided for quite some time, going back and forth between Romney & Johnson. But I've decided just today that Johnson will receive my vote.

    If the Libertarian party receives 5% of the national popular vote, as I understand they will be eligible for federal campaign funds in the next election cycle. This could be over $90MILLION. Significant enough to make them more known, potentially getting up to 15% nationally in polls and even included in the debates.

    I disagree with some of the more extreme ideas of the Libertarian Party being implemented practically (even if I do agree with the ideologically), but as a party that has no shot in winning, they can afford to be more extreme. If/when they should start becoming popular, I would expect them to cut off some of those extreme ideas and focus on the ones that will have an impact and are popular among the people.

    I'm voting for Johnson with the intent of helping to get his popular vote above 5%, or if nothing else, get him close enough that the party can get over 5% in the next cycle. I believe the Libertarians are on the road that will save us most efficiently -- they just need to be tamed slightly by the people. I believe enough people are not happy with this 2-party system right now that if a change were to come, it could build momentum fairly quickly.

    Johnson's campaigned quite hard to get in front of the people. The fact that you've heard of him says that he's done his job. The fact that you don't know about him says that you haven't done your job in researching your options. He cannot force the media to cover him and they won't unless he's popular. He cannot become popular if the people only look into the people the media tells them to look into. It's a viscous cycle and only the individuals have the power to stop it.

    why is defeating obama such a priority? the house republicans can, and have shown that they will, block anything he tries to do. so, why does he need to be defeated, he's already impotent thanks to the right.

    I voted for Mitt Romney last week.

    Are you liberal enough to want to put the environut agenda ahead of humanity? Yes! Are you a moonbat? Hell, yes! You told me you were green, and nobody is disputing that. Do you want to see the Government bury the Private Sector? Yes! That's pro-Marxist and exciting as hell for you. Democrats are a radical, and I repeat, RADICAL, pro-government ideology dedicated to protecting the status quo of liberal elitists, like "let's beat the hell out of certain of the wealthy and we will redistribute their increase to the poor." Like maybe tapping anyone who earns over $150K per year. You seek a nice, balanced liberal policy that takes from the rich and redistributes to the poor. You are a liberal, and I want you to be proud of that fact.

    You're shilling for the DNC in the guise of conservatism, Dave, and nobody buys it.

    because we don't want two more hard left justices on the court which might be enough to get rid of gun rights (among other things)
