How Mitt Romney Won My Vote

Why would you not vote because you didn't like Romney? That is the same as voting for Obama and it doesn't make sense. You don't approve of Obama's policies so why give him a boost? Too many may think that way and be sorry with the results. Romney isn't perfect, but so far he is the best that have come up against Obama. And as for the debates, remember he has debated with people in some form or other for many years. As a missionary, a business leader, a governor he has been in contact with people that disagree with him and has gained much experience. People shouldn't be like children that won't eat dinner because it includes spinach, and go hungry then decide too late that spinach may not be that bad afterall. Please vote!

O rly? Someone clearly has been only watching FOX this election. There are, I believe, four third-party candidates running besides Romney and Obama this election. The Libertarian Party, the Green Party, and the Constitutionalist Party have all put forth candidates, and then there is another candidate running, but I don't remember his party affiliation (if he has any).

In what actual way is Romney significantly better than Obama?

Sorry, but an election is a consent for a candidate. If you don't care for either candidate, then why SHOULD you vote? And only morons think that not voting is a vote for the other guy. If you don't vote then it is NO vote for BOTH.

Back in May of 1999, I made a decision to leave the Democratic Party. It was an easy decision. I had been a Democrat for 11 years. I voted for Dukakis when I was a committed leftist. But, later, when I became a pro-life conservative, there was no room for me in the party. So I became a Republican and also joined the NRA. I've been a straight shooter ever since. Excuse me if that last line sounded heterosexist. I’m a work in regress....
