I grew up a hardcore republican, however, as I have aged, I have constantly found myself at odds with many GOP leaders. GWB was a huge disappointment of a POTUS for me. However, I do find it interesting that BHO has been so similar in many regards (granted, worse, yet still similar, particularly in the way of wars and spending). I have little faith that Romney (or any other of those who were in serious contention for the GOP candidacy) will make large strides in the right direction. I am in a political limbo right now. I am a registered republican, but I find myself more in line with many libertarians out there. The more I feel like I learn about the world and politics, the less I feel I really know. I have never been one for conspiracy theories, and the nuts like Alex Jones make me cringe. I don't think everything is a conspiracy (like I don't think the govt was in on 9/11) although I do think the politicians capitalize on things such as 9/11 in order to force unconstitutional legislation such as the patriot act. I am convinced the POTUS (regardless of who he is) is a puppet. I don't know if congress is truly as stupid as they seem, continually spending money we don't have. Bottom line, I don't know much, but I do believe we are being forced down a path of financial ruin and increasingly being scared into giving away our freedoms for "security". This is why I prep. I fear for our country's future, and I don't trust 99% of the politicians out there. I don't know who to vote for in November. Romney is only slightly less worse than Obama and RP probably won't be running.
