The stereotypical Conservative Christian bloc, pretty much. The Duggars ( that 20 kid family) campaigning for him kind of sums it up.

Ron Paul will not win the nomination, so I will go back to voting for the Libertarian candidate. That person will equally have no shot - but a vote cast that compromises your principles is a wasted vote. A vote for Obama or Romney is a vote for the status quo and the status quo is ruining us.

Ron Paul supporter here and no I will not back Romney or either of the other 3 stooges. I will write in Paul on election day if necessary.

A obama win could easily mean there would be no country left by 2016.

I will be writing in Ron Paul and even though Obama will most likely win, it sure would send a message if Ron Paul received more votes than the GOP candidate, which IMO is highly possible with the psychopath "frontrunners" currently vying for the spot.

I looked into that but unfortunately, the Libertarian will be Gary Johnson. Not a terrible candidate overall, but he is pro-abortion and I'd have a difficult time voting for him because of that. He's also pro-NAFTA, which I don't care for. He's actually great on pretty much every other issue IMO. But those are big issues to be on the wrong side of.

At this point, I'm willing to vote for Romney just to get Mr Spending Spree out. Any President that can double the national debt in just 4 years is worth moving heaven and earth to get rid of. But over the long-term scheme of things, I'll move more towards Libertarian unless/until one of the big parties moves towards Libertarianism.
