Unfortunately, you are one of the people at fault for Obama being re-elected. A vote for the Libertarian candidate was a vote for Obama. Was Romney a perfect choice for conservative Republicans? Of course not. But he was light years better than Obama and he was the only candidate that could have won against Obama. It is people like you that put Obama back in office and inflicted the damage of the next four years on our nation.
The very quotable British novelist Samuel Butler observed that, “Self-preservation is the first law of nature.”  Reports coming from Washington seem to show that this instinct is increasingly demonstrated in a very short-sighted set of actions by institutional Republicans in light of recent successes where grassroots held their elected representatives’ feet to the fire; a fire fueled by the party platform.
