I support Newt but if Romney wins the nomination, I will vote for him. I would vote for a box turtle before I would vote for Obama.

This!

I will write in Ron Paul, expecting Mr Obama to be re-elected. However, I will probably vote for the republican in the one Senatorial seat up for election this year in my state (in my House district the republicans have a monopoly).

After suffering a disaster in the 2001-2010 period due to a lack of balance of power, I think that the Constitutional checks and balances have actually worked quite well over the past 18 months or so and the economy is at least stabilizing on its own. The less those nincompoops do the better, the exact result that the Constitution is designed to achieve.

I would be deeply concerned if Mr Obama were re-elected with the democrats regaining the majority in the House.

I don't expect the republicans to gain a majority in the Senate, it will remain a virtual tie (any combination within the 59-41 range is okay).

I would be equally concerned if the repubodem Romney were elected with any kind of Congressional make-up, he and his cronies could bribe them all in their own interest, just like Mr Bush and his cronies did.

I would only vote for Mr Romney if he fully embraced monetary policy reform and guaranteed appointment of Ron Paul as Secretary of Treasury or Federal Reserve Chairman. Very highly unlikely at this point.

Good Luck!

As could a Romney win, a Gingrich win, or a Santorum win.

In answer to the original question, No.

The question you should ask yourself is - when did these "Gingrich people" and "Santorum people" even started to exist? Pretty recently. None of them are folks who have been following Gingrich or Santorum for years, studying their voting records etc. Before these folks were "Gingrich people" and "Santorum people", they were "Trump people", "Bachmann people", "Perry people", "Cain people" and so on. If the nominee happens to be someone else other than Romney, say Jeb Bush, Chris Christie or Sarah Palin, the "Gingrich people" and "Santorum people" will immediately become "Bush people", "Christie people" or "Palin people". They are pretty malleable. Just give them anyone with an 'R' next to the name.
Great post. I am Ron Paul people. No, I will not vote for Romney or any of the 3 of a kind.
