Sheesh! Who is this gordon guy? Come on Townhallers, we all know it is a waste of time to attempt to reason with progressives (aka...communist wanna be's). These people are hard-wired to the collectivist/altruist ideology. You cannot reason with people that choose to be ruled by emotions, wishes, and whims.

I'm just a guy who loves this country and ask questions. I am not now nor have I ever been a member or associated with the communist party. The fact that I don't agree with you, your politics, or social agenda, does not make me a socialist. I am a father, a veteran, a self employed tax payer. I am an American, just like you. I like to visit this site, just as I sometimes listen to fox news, to see what it is you guys think and believe about things. Is that terribly odd?

If you have the hots for Barack Obama and for a corrupt administration like his; you DON'T love this country. You sure aren't an American "just like me." I wouldn't p-ss on Obama if he was burning to death.

Usually, replying to a progressive is useful to persuade those who read but never comment.

In this instance, Gordon listed a bunch of nonsense regarding why he thinks he should vote for Obama. It is helpful to explain why it's nonsense.

E.G. "He got us out of one war and is about to get us out of another." Accident of timing, has nothing to do with competence. Plus, he appears to have caused a firestorm in the Middle East which did not exist when he took office, by appeasing and supporting the most violent parties while dismissing useful allies. The US will be paying for decades for his incompetence -- but progressives will continue to blame the mess he produced on Republicans who happen to be holding office when the s**t hits the fan.

Again, 2008 we are in two wars, started by a Republican President, sore at Saddam for trying to kill his daddy, who by the way was smart enough not to send us into Iraq, 2012 we are still in one war, but are pulling out of it. This is not a coincidence, but a promise he has kept. Universal Healthcare, which is somehow a giant boogey man to people here. Why? Canada has it, the UK has it. Virtually every other civilized nation has a similar system in place. The subject of the piece implemented such a system as Governor of Mass.

As a matter of fact, if Gov of Mass, Mitt Romney was running I would vote for that earlier version. Hell that Mitt said the following "On a personal basis, I don't favor abortion. However, as governor of the commonwealth, I will protect a woman's right to choose under the laws of the country and the commonwealth. That's the same position I've had for many years." Protecting a woman's right to choose. Hell he sounds like one of us.

Over the last few months, it has been absolutely stunning to see Mitt Romney, of all people, portrayed as some sort of greedy, ruthless, unfeeling corporate raider who plows over everyone who gets in his way so he can make a few dollars more. Of all the criticisms you could aim at Mitt Romney, there is none that has less validity than that one. In fact, the vast majority of people who read this column -- whether they're liberal, conservative, or moderate -- probably don't personally know a single person who has proven to be more generous and compassionate than...
