Re: Poll - Obama (D) vs Romney (R) - Vote
Don't want Romney in the White House any more than I want Obama there. He's not any better of an option. Sad, but true. The Republican party fucked up by treating Ron Paul like shit and now the Republican nominee is a joke who gives you no reason to vote for him other than "he's not Obama". The funny part is he actually is a lot like Obama. Both completely Keynesian, unwilling to make cuts to balance the budget, unwilling to cut military spending, both extremely against civil liberties, both extremely pro-war, they are two sides of the same coin and there is no reason to think one would be better than the other AT ALL. Except of course for those riveting campaign attack ads and debate night zingers. Oh boy, THAT'LL fix the country.
So no, I won't be voting Romney. Won't be voting Obama either. They're both awful. No matter who wins it's just going to be more and more of the government making a mess of things until Liberty-minded Republicans take over the disgraceful GOP and give us a candidate we can believe in who is actually willing to address the real problems the country faces and provide real solutions. That is an inevitability btw, so at least there's that to be hopeful about. In the mean time let's hope it doesn't all fall apart on us.
