Who is less evil? Romney or Obama

When I tell people now a days that I will not be voting for the republican for president, but writing in someone or voting third party (I have yet to make up my mind) they tell me that I should be voting for the lesser of two evils, and that since I am not voting for romney that I am giving my vote to obama. When I respond I think that obama is just a tiny bit less evil than mitt, and if that is my choice I would be voting for obama they are shocked, and that tends to be the end of the conversation. My reasons are

obama 4 years is less than mitts 8 years

obama is lazy mitt is actually a very hard worker, so I would rather have a lazy evil dictator than an industrious evil dictator

The military tends to lean right so if the shtf they are more likly to ignore a democrat than a republican

obama has been known to be a reason for unity among the grass roots, the tea party, and the ron paul people in the republican party, but Mitt romney is kinda known to divorce all such groups out of the republican party.

I know that obama uses executive orders to do evil (and this is the biggest knock against him when comparing him to mitt)but in all honesty I can not compare mitt to him in this category, so on this one issue its a question of the devil you know verses the one you do not know.

I feel the republicans will likely keep congress, and may get the senate, and historically that is an awful thing to have with a republican president, but a wonderful thing to have with a democrat president because instead of destroying more freedom, and spending more money they argue about petty things.

So my question fellow dp'ers when you vote third party or write in someone, is your vote being taken away from mitt, or obama? and why?

Would you prefer being mauled

By a 1,500 pound grizzly or a 1,400 pound grizzly? It is a loaded question with no real preferable option.

Not less, but more. Who is more evil? That is the question!

Is the known evil with Obama worse than the unknown potential evil with Romney? Maybe we can answer that question by figuring out which one has told the biggest lies. Has Obama or Romney told the biggest lies? That is hard to say. Which one has lied the most times is perhaps another way to distinguish them apart. Difficult to answer also. How about they are both equally evil, IMO.

Plus, republicans are currently anti-socialist

Get Romney in office and suddenly they will love it and explain how exactly what they hated before is ok now. At least 4 more years of Obama might keep people trying to think a little.

2 term puppet

is worse than 1 term puppet

If we are plunged into WW3, think 4-term FDR.

Should Obama be reelected, he could overstay his 2-terms also like FDR did should WW3 happen. I know, ugh!

If you say "the lesser of two evils" you are already defeated

Do not accept either.

You have other choices like Gary Johnson, write in Ron Paul (if counted in your state) or abstain. George Carlin used to say..."I don't vote, that way I am not responsible for the idiot in office"

I would respect the abstaining voter over the person who voted for the "lesser of two evils".

Don't go on emotion, you have other choices

Obama is better than Romney because the DNC is less corrupt. Gary Johnson is better than either. If we re-elect Obama, look out for the higher taxes (not income but special taxes) during the next term, significant inflation, and the immediate legalization of 22 million immigrants, and the push for solar energy at all costs...

"This isn't what the govern meant"

I intend to vote for Johnson

but he wont win. I'm voting for him anyway to kick Romney the Tyrant in the ass....how's that for emotion...lol

    This point of not a dimes worth of difference is correct and it is the reason why I'll vote obama.

    "The San Francisco Daily Morning Call, August 2, 1864

    ENLISTED FOR THE WAR

    If ever you want to find Ellen Quinn, or Gentle Julia, or Mary Holt, or Haidee Leonard, or Annie Berry, please call at the County Jail, upstairs. Mary Holt has spent most of her time there for the past fourteen years, it is said, and the most inexperienced of this company of choice spirits (gin) has sojourned there chiefly for the last three years. Mary Holt has just enlisted again for the County Jail for fifty days, and next time she comes out she will probably enlist for the war. Following is the record of service of these old soldiers for the past twelve months: Out of the 365 days, Ellen Quinn spent 240 in the County Jail; Gentle Julia, 210 in the station house and County Jail together; Mary Holt, 190 in the County Jail alone; Haidee Leonard, 106 in the County Jail; Annie Berry, 111 in the County Jail. The balance of the year these fellows have spent in the stationhouse, for the most part, for they suffer arrest and confinement there three times, with about two days imprisonment for each arrest, before they can pass muster and get into the County Jail. The veteran Mary Holt commenced fighting the prisons in 1849 or '50. " - Mark Twain, Reporter, 1864

    What scares the heck out of me

    about Romney is his (and his possible Secretary of State's) propensity for starting WWIII. Even if his expected attack on Iran did not start WWIII, it would destabilize the petroleum market and cause a world wide great depression.

    Obama /Romney = Cancer/Aids

    Since the GOP is likely to

    Since the GOP is likely to take over the Senate, my thoughts is that Romney is worse in the short term, because he will have a Republican legislature and will likely take us into another war. But Obama is worse in the long term because he could appoint another Supreme Court Judge and can spend even MORE money than a likely Romney Presidency.

    Either way, both are awful.
