Loved your analogy, Mr. Ransom, even if it does cause the squeamish to squeam! The real mystery is not so much why we lost this election; not enough of those who consider themselves as conservative bothered to get off their behinds and vote. The only thing with which I take issue with you, and it really saddens me to do so, is your labeling Governor Romney as the "worst candidate in history." If your only means of judging him is the result of an election which took place with the most free-loaders in the history of our country making up a majority of the electorate then I would have to agree with you. There is no debating that he failed to move enough of the voters to get the job done, but who else could have done any better? Really.
