Most Americans aren't happy with either choice in the upcoming election. I'm an independent. (Demographically, I'm a middle-aged WM, married, college educated, middle-class, church-attending Christian.) This year, I'll be voting, rather half-heartedly, for Obama, but I'll be voting whole-heartedly against the Republican party. I'll be voting against the dangerously irrational, simplistic, cult-like extremism that the party has embraced over the past few years. Whether or not Obama deserves to win, the Republican party deserves to lose.

Unlike some of the other posts here,... I will not judge your spirituality or Christianity,... but I will challenge the premise of your writing: that any Christian could possibly vote for a candidate who is personally responsible for advancing legislation in the state of Illinois, legalizing the killing of those poor babies who survive abortions. What is there that could possibly be more vile ?

I believe that U may be posing as a Christian while attempting to influence Christians to vote against Romney. Those who choose to ignore the factual record of Barhama are the epitome of vile IMHO. May God have mercy on your soul.

" the dangerously irrational, simplistic, cult-like extremism"?

Can you be any less specific about the topic that has you casting a vote for Obama?

How can you call yourself a Christian and vote for someone who is pro-abortion??? Me thinks you are not what you claim.

you do not say how you are making your living, so i assume you are either employed or an employer. i would like to hear from you a year into obama's second term. you will see nothing but destruction - unemployment higher than it is now, bad medical care and higher prices on everything. if you think Romney is dangerous wait till you see what obama has in store for this country.

The '3rdCitizen' has a Third World mentality if you vote for Ovomit because that's just what he wants to do. Destroy America and turn it into another Third World society!

I'm so sorry to have to tell you this, but if you vote for Barry, you'll be voting to murder babies--unborn AND born, you'll be voting to simply give all the elderly a pill when they are sick so they can just go home and take the pill and wait for the grim reaper to come and remove them since "they are totally worthless, you know." You'll be voting for queen Michelle to be able to go on gazillion dollar vacations and shopping trips--spending money that you and I have paid to Barry. You'll be voting for many more lost jobs, lost homes, lost hopes and dreams--more people living under the bridge in a refrigerator box. You'll be voting to personally pay for Fluke's contraception and/or abortions--right out of your pocket.

Conservative doesn't always mean Republican. But if you, a "church-going Christian" cast your vote for the liberal anti-God, anti-Christian, anti-Jew, anti-American, anti-military, anti-freedom Barry, you are not a Christan.

Tampa, Fla., was like the Republican National Convention delegation -- older, more experienced, less excitable. Tampa has hosted the Super Bowl; the city had lots of space and nothing to prove. There was a been there/done that feel to the entire affair. Tampa Bay is used to welcoming visitors and has plenty of nice hotels to host them.

You say a hurricane is coming? No worries. They laid out some sandbags, closed up for a night and started up a day later. No need to rush a convention. People don't come to Florida to be in a hurry.
