And keep putting liberal progressive socialist in power while you hold your breath pouting because a candidate isn't perfect. When faced with a bad choice and a worse one your answer is suicide?

Either way we're going to get a Posted Imagety leader. Why not push for one party to stop nominating Posted Imagety leaders?
If we'd elected Romney would he have somehow NOT been a liberal progressive socialist? Have you seen his track record in Massachusetts?!

It's not suicide, it's refusing to give in. If both parties offer my liberal BS candidates, I'll support neither. That's the only way conservatives have a chance to change the GOP before it's too late.

Jeb Bush is the smartest and would govern the best... but the Bush name is poison.
Rand Paul would be excellent; intelligent and ideologically sound.
Marco Rubio would also be excellent and may actually be the eventual nominee.
Cruz would be good, but the press would crucify him at every turn.
Christie blew it.

Why do people care about the President? smokey is going on and on about throwing away a vote for a 3rd party candidate, when people fail to realize the POTUS doesn't really accomplish much. Congress, who is bought by corporations, is what is ruining America. You think a Romney-America would have looked any different than the Obama-America we have been in the last 2 years? No...

It doesn't matter who is elected. Get off the high horses, regardless of what party you align with, and just live your Posted Imagety lives like the rest of us who understand it's pointless.


Executive Order abuse and court appointments both supreme and lower.

So vote libertarian, a party that has never been and honestly has no reason to be a real political party? They have been around 40-50 years and have no nationally elected office holders? That doesn't strike you as a reason to dismiss them from any serious discussion? If you are clamoring for change they are not the answer. They are a nice comfortable place to bury your head in the sand and pretend the real world isn't happening.

Romney vs Obama? Really? Is Romney a perfect candidate? Hell no, far from it but he would have been a damn bit better than obama. If nothing else Obama care would not be with us. We would honor our treaties. He would at least be a fake conservative as opposed to a full blown no consequences 2nd term obama.

if Jeb freaking Bush is our best option, we our beyond screwed. She would win in a huge way

The thing is, even if this whole Benghazi thing finally comes to fruition, not enough people will care. The woman could probably walk out in the street and shoot someone in the face and no one would bat an eyelash

Other than his incorrect stance on amnesty what's wrong with Bush. His record as governor of Florida was solid.

No reason to be a political party? Have you looked at their platform? It's almost the perfect combination of what typical Republicans are supposed to have right and what typical Democrats have right. If more Republicans started voting Libertarian, which they are, the Republican party would eventually have to acquiesce to more Libertarian ideas instead of drifting farther and farther left every year like they've been doing. If nothing else, the Libertarian party can be a reality check for the Republican party.
Libertarians are part of the real world. In fact, I'd wager that a huge portion of Republicans and even a sizable portion of Democrats would vote for Libertarian candidates if they ran under either party because their ideals and solutions are in line with what a lot of Americans believe. Let's face it, Republicans are as fiscally conservative as Democrats are these days, aka they waste a whole bunch of money on meaningless BS.

Romney wouldn't have been much better than Obama, and that's a problem for me. I'm not voting for someone that I disagree with on a majority of issues. I don't want fake conservatives. I'm not going to bow to the main stream Republican party and support whomever they throw out there as a Posted Imagety candidate. If Republicans want my vote, they better give me a candidate worth voting for (Rand Paul), otherwise I'll be voting third party where I can cast a vote for someone that I'd actually want to see as president.

Hell yeah, I'm glad to see more people embracing that plan! If Republicans want to keep giving us Posted Imagety candidates, those candidates will get less and less support until they have to change their game plan.
