"the right thing" is not on the ballot, folks. This is a stupid argument right now, this is a primary argument. The primaries are over. Stop what we're doing now. The only choice other than "keep what we're doing" is Rudy McRombee. So take that choice. We need to already be preparing to primary Romney unless he wakes up and discovers he's really a conservative president. But until this election is over, he's the only option.

That argument is false.

The right thing is always to vote for the moral, law-abiding person.

You argue we must put that value on hold every time we have no horse in the race. A system that has been in place for a very long time, with no positive results. The answer is for republicans to say NO MORE. This is what I heard a lot of after McCain got nominated. What happened? We got SOME MORE. There is no evidence this will change.

So both strategies, yours and mine are doomed to failure. They both end badly. Mine prefers republicans would change their ways and decide principles are important. Yours is a system of, "it will buy us more time to get someone we actually like" elected. But that someone will be despised by R's.

No, the argument is sound based on your second to last sentence.

When the laws are immoral, the moral must become lawbreakers.

How true JustMC.

Any attorney could argue each of us is already guilty of something. After all, if the law is a living document evolving to suit the whims of who is in power, all of us are guilty.

I don't like a lot of what has been added, in writing, to the Constitution. But I know it is the law, and I know politicians do not seem to care if they follow it or not. I suppose that being able to argue that the law changes all the time, they could be right.

Thank you! It's what I've been saying all along.....
Mitt Romney tells people he won't fire federal workers or cut education spending. He says he'll spend more on the military. He sounds like a big-government guy. Or is he just pandering for votes?

Ann Coulter came on my TV show to defend Romney.

"What you call pandering is called getting elected," Coulter said.

Romney says he'll repeal Obamacare. Great! But he wants to keep popular parts: coverage for pre-existing conditions and keeping grown kids on their parents' policies until age 26. Those mandates are popular. But that's not insurance. That's welfare.

"If we do not repeal Obamacare in the next...
