Do you believe that Romney could actually be worse than Obama? Yes'+' or No'-'.

Day 1?

TransCanada - Keystone Pipeline

What is "Common Sense Healthcare Reform"? Romneycare perhaps?

2.1 trillion in defense spending.

I believe that Romney could actually end up being much worse than Obama.

I think O is a lot less

I think O is a lot less likely to takes us to a real war like Iran. I have friends in the service and agencies and they all agree that Romney will bring more war than both previous Bush's combined.

Other than that they are both pro-police state, pro-nanny state, and owned by corporations.

4 years of crap versus 8

4 years of crap versus 8 years of crap. What a choice.

Formerly rprevolutionist

yes on foreign policy

Rmoney may be better on the economy...a tiny bit. But the thought of a Secretary of State John Bolten scares the shit out of me. It is a tough choice because they both are horrible. They are both bad in different ways! It's horrible. All we can do is vote our conscious and deal with the aftermath. Life will go on.



Essentially the same policies...

...but Mitt would be worse because, if he's President, those policies and the disasters they cause will be associated with the free market and limited government in the minds of the masses. If Obama wins, at least those same disastrous policies will be viewed as the leftist policies that they are.

Plus Mitt could be in for 8 years, Obama's out for sure in 4.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

Yes yes yes

Being from Massachusetts I am sure he will be just as bad

I am bringing this one back.

Mainly because of the post/video I just saw on Romney saying that middle-class is somewhere around 200-250 thousand a year. Wow! And, because of his foreign policy views.

One thing that I've heard many people say even in the differences between Obama & Romney, is that Obama may still at least be a bit more calm, cool, and collected when it comes to the decision making on the big red buttons.

Romney seems like his Interventionist Foreign Policy would ONLY consist of Bullying. Romney does not handle criticism very well at all, and for someone that already is an interventionist, that is scary to think of how he would "Handle" this situation.

Romney's foreign policy is probably so unwise, that it would not surprise me to see him make Herman Cain - (Mr. Uzbekibekistan) his Sec. of State. --

Doesn't matter- Lesser of the 2 evils is STILL evil

No compromises. Ron Paul all the way to the white house. Rack up them delegates and head on to Tampa. No more distractions!


Why even bother with this post? The demographics show that Romney cannot win.

Keep fighting for delegates and show up in Tampa.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul

Romney will be better in some

Romney will be better in some ways and worse in others. Obama is no advocate for peace and nonintervention but Romney is even more likely to get us into a war with Iran. I can't pull the lever for Obama but Romney gives me no reason to vote for him either. If Gary Johnson is on the ballot and Ron Paul isn't I'll vote for Gary Johnson.

if he's another Bush -much worse

Bush and the Repugs looted the country -we're paying for it now big time..Their all terrible on civil liberties -Clinton and Bushes were abyssmal on civil rights. Funny how the msm paints Ron as against civil rights when none of the others are even in the same ballpark when it comes to liberty

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

Of Course

Romney would be much worse because we would not get another shot for at least 8 years instead of a guaranteed 4 with Obama. Besides, lame ducks make better Presidents in general since they are not as beholden to lobbyists and influence peddlers. Romney will spend his first 4 years pandering to the banksters and the military industrial complex so he can get re-elected. Then, his cronies will flood his re-election campaign with cash just like they are doing right now.

I can see it a couple

I can see it a couple ways...

When I observe and hear Obama speak, I hear someone who reveres Karl Marx, thinks the Russians could've had a good thing going had they done it a little differently, actively desires more power and, given his covered him history and pre-senate buddies, could be actively planning on huge draconian totalitarian power seizures...

When I observe and hear Romney speak, I think it is someone who believes that Marx is wrong, communism, dictatorship, etc is bad, socialism is bad, likes the idea of market economies, etc... but has NO IDEA how markets actually work, has NO MORAL FOUNDATION to why freedom is RIGHT and is BENEFICIAL (so he equates subsidies and bailing out private, failing businesses with market economy), and lacks the backbone to steer us towards freedom when the mess hits the fan while the sheeple (urged on by self-serving, knowledgeable special interests) are yelling for him to take command and be a strong bold leader in the face of economic collapse.

Most presidents utilizes the precedents set by previous presidents, so I think Mitt Romney's first term would be worse than Obama's first term, but he'll still want to get re-elected, and I think that would temper some actions. I think Obama's second term would be far worse than his first term and likely would be worse than Romney's 1st term. There's no telling what things could be like in 2016, so I can't speculate on Romney's 2nd term... I think it comes back to his lack of principles in the face of economic disaster that would be dangerous.

Either choice means war, debt, inflation, etc.

"You must be frank with the world; frankness is the child of honesty and courage...Never do anything wrong to make a friend or keep one...Above all do not appear to others what you are not" - Robert E. Lee, CSA

I think he could be worse,

I think he could be worse, and not just because Romney could be there for 8 years, but because Republicans would be much more willing to go along with the GOP version of big government than the Democratic version of it, and the Democrats hardly ever pass up a chance to grow government (unless it's a civil liberties issue like the PATRIOT Act, but even then it's all political).


4 years vs 8 years

The worst part is that Romney could be worse than Obama for 8 years instead of just another 4.

An old Romney video

from the end of last year, ill have to look for it i cant remember how to find it, but it was a news report asking about military oversees, to Romney.

He was talking about expanding to EVERY nation in the world, and the more he talked only two words keep repeating in my head:

"World Domination"

It was something like "military expansion plan" or something, but its at least 10 years or more in the making.

The video went on to say how the people who wrote the plan are some of the same people who got kicked out of different Presidential positions for this exact thing.

I really have to find it, but i cant remember what its called. It may have been a Rachel Maddow report, but i could be wrong.

Some times you learn more failures than successes

Edison, I understand, used hundreds, maybe thousands of combinations of filaments and configurations to invent the incandescent light bulb. Once the basic design was developed it changed very little over a 100 years. If the Republicans are successful, little will change, they will use the same design,(read tactics) that have been successful. If they lose they will analyze, study, redesign their tactics, message and strategy to avoid another failure. That's where we come in, it will be clear that the rejection of the liberty voters and Ron Pauls message alienated 20%-30% of potential Republican votes. If they actually want to win, they won't repeat that mistake again! They will be more open to our ideas with a failure than a success, that gives the liberty movement time to rebuild the GOP in Dr Pauls image and bring in more liberty candidates for 2014 and 2016.

I won't vote for Obama, but I can't in good conscientious vote for Romney and reinforce the GOPs learning experience by rewarding bad behavior.



obama should probably stay in there , considering duffs article about romneys past here and possible future.

SCARY!!! i thinks the blocks are being put into place for more false you knwo whats.

Gordon Duff

Made some real scary allegations about Romney, I have not read anything about that before. Is Gordon Duff credible?

+1 for discussion

but my opinion is that in the important matters there will be no difference of agenda between Obama and Romney. To me its like saying "Whose going to pump your gas better? Bob or Carl?"

Technically, No

Obama has the revenge of the race cultures goin' on, of course, Romney doesn't. The culture change thing is particularly dirty and destruction in its own way.

But, both are liars, who holds the greatest lies?

update: Obama holds the greatest lies with the culture-war(s) as an added "hate", if you will, against citizens of the U.S. and, being his second term would compound this. He also has the no-touch policy working for him.

Obama, very very very bad.

In liars we trust

Yes, the success of America lies in who is the least piece of crap.

irrelevant...two heads of the same hydra

The two party system is an illusion.

What about the devil who stabbed his own father in the back?

I don't think anyone could be

I don't think anyone could be worse than Obama. He has directly lent out hundreds of millions of dollars to flawed and now failed alternative energy companies. Obama ran on peace, won the Nobel Peace Prize, then funded the war in Libya, and has continued and expanded all of Bush's drone and convert war policies. He openly calls for higher taxes on the job creators, saying they should "pay their fair share". He openly calls for more government spending under the guise of "investment". And need I even remind you of what was of the worst cons ever pulled on the American public, the Health Care fiasco. Sure, Romney crafted a separate plan in Massachusetts, but he would never try such a thing as President.

Now I am NOT throwing my lot behind Mitt Romney, but I agree with Peter Schiff: Unfortunately, one of these guys will win. Among all the previous and current candidates, the best option was by far and away Ron Paul, the worst case scenario is Obama, and the second worst case scenario is Romney. I for one am strongly considering Lew Rockwell's advice, to not vote, and if I do, a write in for Ron Paul it will be. No one is entitled to my vote just because they are the lesser of two evils.

two narcissists fighting over a


I'd rather not


Obama hates America and has a goal to make America a second rate country. He is just like the preacher he sat under for 20 plus years. IMO


As foretold in the newsletters

Romney/Bachmann 2012. Rand for Secretary of the Treasury. The black man must go.

Klaus7 Is Right On

I would even like to have Ron for Secretary of the Treasury. Maybe that is why Ron did not go after Romney like we thought he would.
