    I fear for our nation. I hope Romney wins (and I voted for him), but I'm just really not impressed. :crying:

    This is not telling us much........

    OK, tell us WHY you were not impressed.

    "why I'm not impressed"? That's like proving a negative, isn't it? Neither candidate gave me any confidence that they'd be good leaders. If that doesn't explain it for you I guess I'm just inarticulate.

    Why are you impressed with either or both of them?

    BTW, this in no way changes my opinion and recommendation that everyone, patriot or communist, should vote for ROMNEY in the election.

    Was just wondering if you'd like to expand on your statements......guess not.

    That speaks for you, too........

    Who do you think would be better than Romney, and why?

    Yes, and since you took exception to my lack of an impression, I asked you to to expand on your implied support, and you have not done so.

    How does that "speak for me"? Is this anything other than a desperate grasping at straws on your part?

    Like it or not, what matters is not who is elected in Nov., but who is seated on the supreme court. That of course is the problem. That is in the hands of who is elected in Nov.

    Very regrettably appointments to the sc will be made by politicians who will vote according to what they are told by their handlers... who act as they are instructed by those who buy and own the legislative process. And those who own and operate that legislative process are not the least bit interested in or concerned about this nation. They are globalist. They don't need America. They need amerkia.

    That is a good question, Vic, but the truth is at this point Romney is all we have, so what would be the point in rehashing the primary process?

    Terrible performance all around. President 0 was tossing softballs and Willard was too busy swing away at flies to see them. Overall I think that Willard did the impossible in that he made 0 sound competent.

    Yes, if we can get Romney in perhaps we can get good, solid constructionist SC justices who'll stand firm on Constitutional principles. Guys like Roberts...

    I wasn't all that impressed either, but I get that Republicans know they can be easily portrayed as a warmonger if they're not careful in what they say.

    hogship,

    I just got through looking at your Vietnam photo album and you do realize that while you were in 'Nam Romney dodge the draft and was hanging out in France eating cheese and living the "Good Life" on his Daddy's money.

    LEt me explain to you, since you are talking about things before your birth, how it was back then.

    I come from a Long, long, line of Americans who served this Country. I was in high school and I was selecting what would be my branch of service to continue the tradition. Vietnam was the war of my generation. I was ready to do as my Father, and Grandfather had done and enlist upon graduation, or as other ancestors had "at first chance".

    The war ended before I graduated. So I never enlisted. (we have the tradition of "Always in war, never in peace". We appreciate those who do and my best friend just retired.

    Any way during a Father and Son talk years later my Father told me that he had put aside some money during my HS days in case I chose not to go or to be drafted, 'running money" he called it. "I would have understood if you didn't want to go. Your GFather in WWI and me in WWII had an idea of what we were fighting for"

    I never quite wrapped my head fully around the idea of not going but there was a lot of that sentiment, and there were a lot of folks who kept quiet when Carter signed the Amnesty.

    It was a time best judged by the people who were there, the filtered vision of it from here sorta blurs things.

    I am rather offended that someone would try and use that era for a political point today, when they weren't faced with it themself.

    Where was Barry when I was in Desert Storm, Kosovo & OIF??

    Probably a good thing he wasn't there. He doesn't seem like much or a hero or a team player.

    There are things about Romney that I can't change........but, my vote is basically against Obama, not for Romney.

    I do think Romney basically believes in the America I do, but the evidence suggests Obama does not........

    And while I was serving my country in the military, Barack Hussein Obama (then known as Barry Soetero) was smoking choom, snorting coke, and doing a little drug trade business on the side for cash. So what was your point again?

    Obama avoided military service during his draft years thanks to the peace through strength policy of Ronald Reagan.

    Had there been a draft, Obama would have switched back to Indonesian.

    Obama, a man of multiple identities and nationalities would have used them to his advantage to save his own skin.
