    I missed the "Americans are idiots" option.

    Indeed. Romney was clearly the intelligent choice. Who wouldn't vote for someone who contradicted almost every position he's held, not over the course of his political career, but since the election cycle began? Total idiots.

    I guess everyone was too stupid to follow the clues to find out what Mitt Romney really stood for.

    Hint: I followed the clues, and they went nowhere good.

    Romney won the GOP nomination. My argument becomes stronger.

    Not sure that even passes for an argument.

    Oh, so you think that the smart Americans chose Romney for the GOP nomination. Just checking.

    Your statement can be read that way, yes. One of the dangers of not specifying.

    it is law, that makes A union strong, ......if in its willingness, to abuse the law, or disregard law, and only do things which is only in the personal interest of getting elected...the me, me, me mentality...then we are finished.

    the founders wanted us so much, to be civic minded, and care for the union, the laws of it.

    but that is over as we have seen, with our government promising, give to one citizen and take from another, using the tool of vengeance...as obama said ........."no no don't boo, vote!....that's the best way to get revenge"
    Okay, I guess you're right. The Country has a problem, best not to try and deal with it. Maybe some other party can come up with a solution.

    Well, in my defense of the lack of a distinct sarcasm font, when I said that "Americans are stupid" I was being 100% serious.

    Other..... Failure to actually articulate a CONSERVATIVE alternative to Mr. Obama. Failure to nominate a candidate who actually IS an alternative (and not just a copy of) Obama.

    It's more than that. I'm a successful (although rich would be a stretch) white male, and I've had zero interest in voting for a republican president in the last 3 elections. If republican's would drop this trickle-down crap and return to the conservatism prior to 1980, they'd have my vote in a second. I want zero corporate taxes, a big military, and gun rights.
