    I am not trolling, just wanted to know who likes Obama and why. It seems like a lot of folks will be voting for him this year, and perhaps there is something I am missing.

    Maybe he is good for this country. What do you think?

    I'm sure there are. But they couldn't give you any objective reasons as to why. It's pretty hard to defend a bad decision that has no merit.

    He is fantastic and deserves my vote without a doubt. Seriously though Romney might buy us some time to fix things but the reality is that voting for more Obama just sinks the ship faster.

    So it depends on your stance. Do we put off the inevitable as long as we can or do we face it head on? Personally I would rather confront directly. ID the losing side and move from there.

    Yeah, there are a couple or three Ron Paul supporters who've stated that they will vote for Obama since their guy has no chance. They want to teach the GOP and America a lesson.

    They are not saying they are voting for Obama because Ron Paul has no chance. They are saying that running Obama-lite is not going to pull us back from the edge of the cliff.

    This is not about teaching anyone a lesson. The GOP has shown that it refuses to learn the lesson, and America has forgotten what it used to stand for. I'm pretty tired of the GOP running the same tired old candidate, just under different names.

    I could never vote Obama. But I frankly do not thing anything meaningful is going to change under Romney (or Santorum). Certain things will get worse under them. The chance of real reform is pitifully thin.

    I don't think any of them are worth a damn but I will vote a straight Republican ticket.

    Yep, many Ron Paul supporters have repeatedly stated they will vote for Obama just to teach America a lesson.

    Additionally those who refuse to vote, are in essence denying the republicans a much needed vote. This benefits only Obama.

    All those who will never be satisfied with ANY republican candidate except Ron Paul are supporting Obama more than they know.

    Not voting for, or refusing to support the republican candidate, is a vote for Obama.

    Thanks for clarifying before I could, your spot on. No I am not voting for Obama. I simply may not vote at all with the choices being given to me not to mention the way that I've been ridiculed by so called "Conservatives" as a Ron Paul supporter. If you think that equates to a vote for Obama being I'm not helping the Republican Obama get elected than sorry. Maybe next time they'll give us a better choice instead of a liberal progressive with an R behind his name.

    Voting for Romney is a vote to move the Republican party farther left than it already is.

    Not a big fan of who's left on the GOP side, but I'd vote for a ham sandwich before I vote for Obama.

    And what do you think that will gain us other than an even more liberal Republican candidate in the future? I keep hearing we will avoid disaster (which is highly debatable) but we can also do that by taking the Senate back with a Republican majority. At this point I'd rather have that and have the Fed'l Gov locked into doing nothing due to bipartisan politics rather than gaining the Senate back along with a liberal progressive "conservative" President with a record of legislating his own healthcare mandates and permanent assault weapon bans. Honestly its a little worrisome to think of a Republican Congress and Senate with a President Romney at the helm. We don't have to reward the GOP for giving us such a crappy candidate by electing Romney.

    That seems to be the battle cry of the Ron Paul supporters.

    But, how can you be certain that Romney will move the republican party farther left?

    Romney's previous record indicates he's a tax and spend liberal, but America is in serious financial trouble and the days of business as usual are over. Romney knows that.

    On the other hand, Obama doesn't care and if re-elected he will go full blown socialist on the American people. He'll drastically raise taxes to pay for healthcare, he'll take ALL our guns, he'll severely restrict our freedoms and give the right to vote to all the illegal immigrants that can cross the border.

    Romney will do none of that stuff or anything like it, simply because he wants a second term.

    We have a choice between a socialist that WILL make America worse, and a republican candidate who MIGHT make things worse.

    Not the best of choices, but that's the hand we've been dealt.

    To me the choice is clear, but then my mind isn't infected with the Ron Paul syndrome.
