Are 8 possible bad years of Romney preferable to 4 more tragic years of Obama?

The MSM and the GOP have been doing their darndest lately to scare us into voting for the lesser of two evils, that somehow, we will retain more liberties with Romney than we would with Obama. Their basic assumptions are:

1. That the liberty movement is mostly made up of disenfranchised Republicans, and that
2. if forced to choose, Romney is clearly the less destructive choice between the to major party candidates.

First off lets deal with assumption #1. As kiterun777's post earlier today clearly pointed out, (http://tinyurl.com/c3c8lb2) many of us actually came out of the Democratic party and not the GOP. This effectively debunks the thought that most of us would vote for Romney if we had to chose between the two major party candidates.

But, if assumption #1 were true, does that mean that, in an attempt to save our principles we should throw principle to the wind and not vote for our liberty candidate of choice, but rather for the candidate who will slow the descent into tyranny down? We all know Romney won't reverse it. That's not even an argument that the GOP is presenting to us. Is the borrowed time worth it? I think not, and here's why.

We all know the old story of the frog in the boiling water. If he is thrown into hot water or the water he is already in heats up too quickly, he will jump out. However, if the temperature is raised slowly enough, he will continue to swim until he boils to death.

With that in mind, think that the 8 potential years of Romney is a slow boil that will lull the currently stirring population back to sleep. On the other hand, if Obama's 4th year in office is any indication of his next 4, he will very likely turn the heat up to a point that millions of citizens will wake up and see things for what they are.

Without a realistic hope of getting a true Libertarian into the white house this election cycle, our next best chance is for things to go from bad to worse quick. Granted, that's not very fun to think about. I hate to say it, but I'd rather deal with an all out attack on our personal liberty's now, than postpone it until a generation is raised that does not remember what personal liberty and freedom even look like. I believe there are still enough people in this country who care about individual freedom that a fight now would tip towards our favor. It's time for us to deal with our problems rather than pass them on to the next generation.

So, are 8 possible bad years of a Romney presidency preferable to 4 more tragic years of Obama? I think no.

What do you all think?

It doesn't matter

they are both banker puppets and whenever the banksters decide to "turn up the heat" either one will do so. Anything is possible we just need to get Gary Johnson in the debates. No matter if you vote for him or not the people need a third voice.

Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our Liberty. -Thomas Jefferson

Possible bad?

LOL! More like probable.

I agree.

The chances of it my being bad are quite slim.

Romney = Currency Crisis (just like Obama)

Neither presidency will be "bad". They'll be a disaster. I don't know how terrible a currency crisis is but I'm not looking forward to it.

Perfect answer:

RON

PAUL

*2* *0* *1* *6*

Who said he would even get 8?

A Romney win validates all the lying, cheating, and stealing that the Romney campaign did to the Ron Paul wing of the Republican Party. Furthermore it validates us as "fringe". In order for Liberty supporters and candidates to get a foothold in the party, Romney has to lose the election and lose BIG. A big loss would further require the Republican party to redefine itself in such a way for us to gain better traction. So yes, I feel 4 more years of Obama is necessary... although I will be voting Johnson or if I can write in Ron Paul.

If the GOP wanted our votes,

If the GOP wanted our votes, they would have treated us differently over the last 5 years.

It doesnt matter what happens

It doesnt matter what happens once the war with Iran starts. Hyperinflation in energy prices, MASSIVE worldwide blowback, and drastic police state increases in response.

I hate to say it Brawler,

but I think I agree with you. I think liberty, and the world, are about to get very sick and possibly die.
