I've read your posts. They are full of deceit and ignorance.

Do your own research. Romney's record as governor of Massachusetts and his plan for restoring fiscal sanity prove you wrong.

Gibberish from an uninformed big government supporter. Do some research yourself. If you did you'd know Romneys plan increases the debt. Get a clue then come back and post some facts for once.
Romney was smart in that he knew the economy was tanking so he cut and ran from being governor so he wouldnt get the blame when Massachusetts fell on hard times.

All proposed budgets, even that from Paul Ryan, increase debt. You cannot responsibly avoid that in the near future.

Romneys positions make him a conservative? Romney is for increasing the size of government. Romney is for bailouts. Romneys budget increases the debt. Those are not conservative positions.
Well if actual cuts make you a conservative, Romney balanced the budget in MA without raising taxes (and cutting them 8 times). What more do you want?

Here is Lee's ACU ratings:

Here is the vote key so you know what votes are being ranked:

As someone who follows Romney's campaign closely, I can tell you he has taken a stance on many of the issues similar to the stance taken by the ACU. I don't think Romney would receive a 100% as Lee did, but he does support many of these things. So Lee and Romney are not that far apart politically. They don't agree on everything, but that doesn't make Lee a sellout. I don't consider myself a sellout just because I happen to disagree with Romney on some things. I just think Romney is the best guy to lead this country, as does Mike Lee.

Ron Paul's budget doesn't. It reduces debt. I love how you added the qualifier "responsibly" as if to imply that any plan which actually will reduce debt is irresponsible.

It is very possible to do this, if only the so-called "conservatives" have the BRASS BALLS to do it. But then again, those who claim they are conservatives are not conservatives at all, just more big government statists, who do want the government to spend, but only for their pet projects. Across the board cuts is what we want, which only Paul can deliver.

There are two types of people in America - those who love Ron Paul, and those who don't know what's going on.

I will look at his budget.

And 'responsibly' was added because of course someone can propose a budget to end all entitlements and thus cut the debt. It's not a viable budget and hence irresponsible. That's all I meant. Clearly I want to reduce the national debt and believe it can be done.

Paul's budget cuts mostly the stupid wars, and eliminating some useless federal departments which have become black holes for tax payer dollars.

Here (http://www.ronpaul2012.com/the-issues/ron-paul-plan-to-restore-america/ - broken link) is the plan. It's very detailed and not vague like the rest of the candidates.
