Dem party platform: more gun bans, restrictions

Hahahaahhaa.....

I was more thinking along the sister/step-sister line cause they're both from the same bloodline.....just like Rombot and Osama

Actually, a step-sister isn't the same blood line of you or your sister ;)

Voting for Osama and voting for Rombot is like sleeping with your sister or sleeping with your step-sister.......either way you're getting screwed and prob not enjoying the thing a whole lot.

Were all a bunch of gun nuts! There is only one person we would have been satisified with. I say write em in anyway, Screw it. Ron Paul for life!

With what Romney pushed the RNC to do to the Paul contingent in Tampa, I'd sooner swallow the business end of my 12 gauge than vote for Romney.

By letting obummer win you might not have that business end available eventually. Just sayin.

BTW: I agree with you 100% on the paul subject

I think that any system that is at its most basic level predicated on the acceptance of a substandard product is doomed to fail.

The two-party system perpetuates itself by removing any real opposition to the status quo. What people fail to understand us that both parties have colluded to maintain a very limited choice in almost any election. Both parties work together to keep those that stray too far from the notion that the present two-party system is adequate to represent us. By limiting discussion to generalities rather than specifics, keeping all "spokespersons" to a predetermined script, and using party authority to quell any deviation from what party leaders believe the message should be, the ability to have substantive discussions regarding any issue is almost nonexistent.

The problem is that when anyone begins to even question the way things are, there are always a substantial number of people who claim anyone who acts in response to the entrenched two-party system just casts a vote to the other side. With this mindset, I'm afraid nothing will ever change.

Will I vote for Romney? Probably not.
A few words from Wayne Root,  2008 Libertarian VP Candidate, Libertarian National Committee (LNC) and Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee (LNCC) Boards 2009-2012:
Quote
To My LNC and Libertarian Party Friends,

Like some of my political heroes who have fought the good fight for smaller government — Ron Paul, Senator Rand Paul, Senator Jim DeMint, and in earlier generations Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater — I have come to the conclusion that I’ll have more opportunity to elect good people and change the direction of this country outside of a third party.

 I aim for one metric as the indicator of success — winning elections to change public policy. My colleagues are correct when they state that there is no point to winning without a philosophical foundation rooted in liberty. But I believe it’s also correct to state there is little point to having such a philosophical foundation, if you are not going to use it to improve people’s everyday lives. I owe it to my four young children to try to actually elect people that can change policy and make a difference in their future.

Do those elected officials have imperfections in their beliefs or their track records? Absolutely! Every politician does. But I don’t see how one can make progress by demanding nothing less than perfection from others. Effective politics is about finding where you agree with others, and working with them to achieve mutual goals.

Quote
When I asked if he was now backing Mitt Romney, Root responded, “I am,” adding, “I don’t deny that Romney and Ryan aren’t libertarians, but Romney is a pro-business capitalist and Obama is a Marxist-socialist.”

“The economy has been trashed. This is about my kids’ future, it’s about my businesses,” said Root. “There is no hope for America if Obama is re-elected.”
