- Both sides are working their talking points, some accurate, most not. Tax returns, birth certificates, education records are all just so much noise that, at this point, have little to do with the problems this nation faces or how to solve them. Online political activists on both sides keep the noise level up on irrelevant talking points in the hopes of keeping everyone distracted from the real issues that are much harder and have no sound byte answers.Sep 24, 2012
- I guess we can agree to disagree, I feel Romney's lack of disclosure on issues directly and implicitly related to his platform stump are very relevant. He is the one that made claims about his tax history, and related it to his platform, he who makes the claims are required to source them and prove them. he refuses. If a man will lie and cheat on taxes (he did professionally, that is documented fact with actual court case documents), and he is interviewing for the highest position in the land, he better come clean, and he has not.
That is all I am saying. No one needs to forget that....Sep 24, 2012
- So, where does that leave a moderate Republican like you? Voting for Romney while you hold your nose or voting for Obama? Or voting for someone other than the two contenders?Sep 24, 2012
- Its tough to consider not voting at all. But that is indeed an option. I would rather maybe not vote vs place a vote "against" a candidate I liked less by placing a vote for one I still did not agree with.
The GOP has really put their Moderates in a bind....Sep 24, 2012
- That's noble. The very qualities that would make some one a respectable and noble politician are the same qualities that would make him/her never run for office. So, we're stuck with the likes of Clinton, Bush and Obama. At the end of the day I want smaller government, no deficits, and progress toward debt reduction. The realities of politics are that it will almost always be a hold your nose and cast your ballot deal. I will vote first against anyone who I believe will increase the size of government, the debt or the deficit. Secondarily, I will vote FOR anyone who convinces me that will actually try to reduce the size of government, the debt and the deficit.Sep 24, 2012
- It kind of funny. Party hard cores see Romney as a moderate.Sep 24, 2012
