Romney Was Not the Problem

Romney was not the most libertarian candidate: Ron Paul was. He was cheated out of the nomination, and with that, Romney lost those millions of supporters that he needed. Beyond that, I never got a clear sense of what Romney was going to do: remember Obama got elected promising change, but no plan for what he was going to change. I think this lack of plan stood out especially next to Ron Pauls very clear plan to cut $1 trillion dollars of spending in his first year, and ending the debt in 4 years. The media chooses our candidates by the coverage they provide. Because of that, we don't always get the best candidates. Actually, we end up with our usual choice of who to vote for: bad or worse.

Stop with the cheated out already. Yes, the establishment did some underhanded stuff, no denying. And they will do it again next time. You might as well complain about the media being biased, it's not going to stop them from being biased.

The only way to win this is to convince enough people of the correctness of your arguements, not b i tching about how it wasn't "fair".

It never is.

It isn't a "pro drug" stance to end a federal prohibition the Constitution doesn't provide for. States can make any drug laws they want to.

Texas could have the death penaly for example.

Do you have any Idea how much the Federal War On Drugs cost. Is it effective, or is it just making it worse?

Do you have any Idea how many doors are smashed in by DEA on innocent folks houses and apartments?

Freedom, and Liberty, really are you sure we have these anymore?

Small minds always leap to the answers given the last time around, which is probably why Maxine Waters keeps getting re-elected. But the last time is not necessarily the same as this time. A terrorist attack is not the same as the Cold War, a war in Afghanistan is not the same as a war in Iraq, and Mitt Romney is not the same as John McCain or Bob Dole.

But since the election, many conservatives seem to be coalescing around the explanation for our defeat given by Jenny Beth Martin of the Tea Party Patriots, who said: "What we...
