I'm voting for Ron Paul, because every one of the other Republican candidates will continue Obama's destructive policies, just like Obama continued Bush's destructive policies. The two political parties are actually identical; they just give us the false illusion of choice.

It should be obvious by now that BOTH mainstream political parties want Bigger and Bigger Government, consolidation of wealth at the very top, gutting of the labor market, and an economy based on sending the wealth of the former Middle Class overseas to China and India.

NONE of the mainstream Presidential candidates want to change ANYTHING. No wonder they go to such incredible lengths to slander Ron Paul and refuse him air time. Not sure how much worse things have to be before the average citizen stops thinking their political party is the correct one, and the other political party is wrong. They are identical, and they are both "wrong" if you are a working class taxpayer.



Ron Paul is an odd combination of Reagan (good) and McGovern (not good).

That's why he never crosses the finish line.

Interesting thread, but somewhat of an irrelevant footnote. All you have to do is look at current right track / wrong track polling to know that obama is toast at this point. The 21% "right track" is barely half of his die-hard supporters! He needs a huge runup just to get into Jimmy Carter territory.

I really question the intelligence and sanity of anyone who would support obama after the train wreck he has turned our once great nation into.

Seriously people, wake up and smell your fingers, they smell like your butts...

But we have a ton of them here on this board, don't we? Some have seen the light.

Technically, he should be hovering in the low 30s in approval, but with the pollsters padding their polls with more dems than is justified, it seems more like 42%, which is amazing considering how bad his policies have failed.

There is still a good portion of voters, the deadenders I call them, that will support this lying POGarbage til the bitter end.

El Rushbo mentioned on his show yesterday that if tomorrow were election day, any Republican candidate would beat Obama 47%-41%, according to Rasmussen.

True, but I attribute it to Bin Laden - without that symbolic success his foreign policy approval would be just as deep in the toilet as his economic approval.

The comedy of errors is reaching new heights. Yesterday Reid had to change senate rules to AVOID a vote on the bill obama sent him. Today the September employment report was respectable, especially considering upward revisions to July and August. But the pathetic sad sack obama can't claim any credit because he has left himself no choice but to continue screeching for his "jobs plan" by talking down the economy. The ineptitude is unbelievable.

The "angry black guy" class warfare act hasn't worked in the polls any better than the phony "centrist" act did. What will he try next?
