It would seem our libertarian friends pretty much handed the election to Obama. Couple that with vote fraud and hello 4 more years of communism/nazism.
But you all can take comfort knowing you voted your conscience and your vote counted... For Obama...
Sarc, I hope
Romney should have blew him away regardless.
It is a Romney failure and a failure for the Republicans to realize that they can’t win against a liberal candidate with a moderate.
The republican party needs disbanded.
naaaaa they just wanted legalized drugs, hookers and abortions.
Blame others for your own failure.
Thank you lovers of empire, Dominionists and drug warriors, AKA Jackboot lickers. Get back to fiscal conservatism and away from the theocracy and maybe they will come back.
The “Third Party Candidate Cost Us The Election” is just silly Liberal RINO nonsense
Someone that got .3% of the vote did not cost the GOP the election. Eschewing the base for PhonyCon ideas cost the election
I agree. What is the most important objective? Defeat 0bama? Or maintain some kind of political purity? Libertarians made their choice. So no more complaining about 0bama. You got what you voted for.
“It is a Romney failure and a failure for the Republicans to realize that they cant win against a liberal candidate with a moderate.”
It is true he just couldn’t make a solid case against Obamacare when he had to defend Romneycare. But I think in the end, debates don’t really matter and people just want their goodies.
Indeed; in real terms 'moderate' means "doesn't stand for anything."
Any candidate who actually stood for something good, say Ron Paul, would have had it... but, no, we have to blame voters for not voting the way we want. (After all, no opinion is valid unless it matches ours.) [/sarc]
The republican party needs disbanded.
Indeed; it does a good job talking about things... but when was the last time it actually pursued it's stated goals? A political party that doesn't pursue its goals is worthless.
The establishment Republicans just can’t figure out that you don’t win national elections by running moderate to liberal milquetoasts.
Well we would have been better off if a real conservative were nominated, in fairness Romney did a better job than I thought he would.
As one person pointed out the much reviled O’Donnell did better in De than the 3 RINOS running statewide there this year.
Run conservatives, although it may be too late for this country.
The Reagan coalition is in shambles, and that’s our fault. Demographics shifted too much, and the left has controlled the media and academia for too long.
We frittered away our power when we had a real chance to stem the tide. The center is shifting leftwards.
The central issue from my perspective is that the GOP isn’t serious about fiscal conservatism. They give lip-service to it every four years, and then the rest of the time, the GOP lives their political lives like a bunch of drunks in a whorehouse.
They claim that there will be NO cuts to defense. Really? There’s nothing in the DOD budget that is waste? Really? That’s hard to imagine. There’s waste EVERYWHERE in the federal budget. I could find $10Bof waste in every cabinet-level agency in the US government in one day. It wouldn’t be difficult to start offering real spending cuts.
But the GOP doesn’t, and hasn’t since 1994.
That the GOP can’t find one thing inside the DOD to cut means that they’re morons, plain and simple, and they’re not believable as fiscal hawks.
Republicans have only themselves to blame for votes lost to the LP.
I have to agree with you there. Enough with meddling in people’s personal lives and let’s focus on the economy and economic freedom please.
At this point lashing out at potential allies (they must be such or you wouldn't blame them for the situation) is very much a losing proposition.
don’t forget to thank Tubby Turncoat
Ayn Rand said:
I am done with the monster of we, the word of serfdom, of plunder, of misery, falsehood and shame. And now I see the face of god, and I raise this god over the earth, this god whom men have sought since men came into being, this god who will grant them joy and peace and pride. This god, this one word: I.
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Sorry, AZ, but the blame lies squarely with the GOPe.
Nice try, though.
Oh no, it is way too easy to blame a small group of people who voted their conscience.
Stuff it where the sun doesn't shine.
