Why are there so many in support of Romney? The place Ron Paul appears to be so popular in on the internet.
Not in reality. I really do not want to engage you in the NDAA or TARP issue. It does not change my mind. You don't have to support this kind of measure, its your choice. What are you going to do if Mitt Romney is elected?
Juliette, if you had come on this forum and not made these kind of comments....
What is wrong with these people? Thank-you for setting the record straight.
I have to get back on the computer and defend Mitt Romney against these mad dogs! ( no offense, woof woof)
...then I would be a little more sympathetic to you not wanting to engage on these important matters. You are right to call out people on "1st grade comments," but then you turn around and a make a few yourself. You want to come on here and defend Mitt Romney--great! We've got a few here and could use some more to balance out the discussion. But there is nothing inherently wrong with me b/c I disagree with you, nor am I a mad dog, and vice versa. I happen to be very concerned about the erosion of civil liberties, the very basic ones we've struggled to maintain and regain for hundreds of years. This forum is a marketplace of ideas, and we bump up against each other and our ideas are challenged, and hopefully we learn something for our benefit from each other in the process.
The reason I asked for your own articulation is because I want to know how you, in your mind, get from A to B---not necessarily so I can bait you or attack you, but so I can understand where you are coming from. OI, in his post, asked for you for discussion on policy from a constitutional standpoint, but your copy and paste reply didn't address it one iota. That was a little frustrating...but, then, maybe you were trying to respond directly in the post you lost. In any event, I'd really love to hear your rationale
on why you support Romney, and I really don't mind copy and paste from other authors, but I didn't find any relevance to the questions being asked in the post you submitted.
What am I going to do if Romney is elected? If you're referring to him being the nominee, I will not vote for him. If you'd like to convince me otherwise, I'd love to hear it. If he wins the election, what are my options at the point?
