I have come to the conclusion that there isn't a platform for people like me. I'm an economic hawk. I want government SEVERELY cut. Socially I'm a moderate. I don't get how Libertarians want no laws about anything except their own pet issues. Seems like no one is against Big Brother as much as they want to be Big Brother. But Obama has to go. Romney/Ryan

Nana-Since you'll never find two people that agree on absolutely everything it's not possible to have a political party that matches you perfectly. I want the government to stick to the Constitution and quit involving themselves in things that should be left to the states-there shold be no federal education department. I don't care what gays do in the privacy of their own homes-I do kind of object to all the public groping, but I don't care if someone is gay. I object to abortion because I think that taking a life is murder. I don't think we should be involved in other country's affairs UNLESS there is a clear American interest. However, I'm all for wiping out radical Muslims. I don't think either party is perfect, but the Republican Party

is the best match right now. The Liberatarians irritate me because they claim to be uninterested in social issues, but every one you talk to has their own social issue they are interested in. Dr. Paul is very opposed to abortion, and that didn't change when he was a Libertarian.

"Dr. Paul is very opposed to abortion, and that didn't change when he was a Libertarian."

I'm asking from true ignorance, I don't know much about Ron Paul or his positions, specifically. Is he in favor of reversing Roe v. Wade and allowing the states to regulate or ban abortion (as was the case before Roe)?

Well said. I have no issue with gays at all. My family has many fine one's. I don't want Creationism taught in Science class but I'm sick of people being offensed at the mere sight of a nativity scene or a cross. I think forcing a rape victim to do ANYTHING is horrible, but late term abortions are unspeakable.

I will vote for and support Romney and Ryan but Congress better grow a set of balls and some brains and cut, cut, cut.

I want a strong military that is for our defense and humanitarian purpose (like disaster relief) Nation building in the ME is a wasted effort.

I think you and I are pretty close.

Happy-Dr. Paul wants to do away with the Fed-at one time he wanted to return to the gold standard, but he's backed off of that. He's an isolationist. He voted against the Iraq War, which is one thing, but then after our guys were already over their fighting, he voted against the funding to supply them. He wants to get Washington out of anything that the Constitution doesn't authorize them to be involved in. A lot of what he says are things most Republicans would have no problem with, but he runs them off with some of his more extreme positions. He's very isolationist. He supports term limits (except for himself). He opposes earmarks-except for himself. Before he was a congresscritter he was a gynecologist and he strongly opposes abortion.

Also, he opposes Obamacare, he opposes illegal immigration, he opposes income tax and wants to eliminate the IRS.

Montana’s Senate race between GOP Rep. Denny Rehberg and Democratic Sen. Jon Tester continues to be a toss-up with the most recent Rasmussen poll from October 14 showing the race tied at 48 percent. Now, with just eight days left to go, Leftists are “actively campaigning in support of what they hope will be a third-party ‘spoiler,’” according to an email sent out by Rehberg’s campaign manager Erik Iverson. This strategy to support the Libertarian candidate Dan Cox came into play in early October but is picking up steam as Election Day nears. From Iverson’s email:
