On a more positive note, thanks to all veterans for serving our country!
This is going to be a hit and run comment, so take it for what it's worth.

I'm not particularly hung up on being stamped with a party label. My political ideology is a mix of what you'd call conservative and liberal ideas. I'd gladly consider a republican candidate.

...and just as soon as the republicans give us an actual republican candidate, I'll consider him/her.

Mitt Romney was a disappointing candidate. I was expecting more, and hopefully the next election the republican party will figure it all out.

Taking the next election would be easy for the GOP. All they have to do is find a candidate that is willing to go on the record as promising everything to everybody. It apparently matters not if they actually deliver much of it.

I find it hard to believe that anyone who works for a living would vote for any republican...
Well, anyone below "executive" level and making less than $500k a year take home pay. (can't call that "earnings")

I work for a living and pay my own debts.
I voted Republican this election, I wish I could vote conservative; but considering that one of the two parties is going to win I will vote for the grown ups.

I can't believe anyone who aspires to financial success....
Who pays their own bills....
Who has lived within a budget...
Who understands that government spending comes at the expense of private capital...

Would vote democrat.

Scott

How does someone who votes Democrat (demonrat?) get a motorcycle endorsement? I thought you had to be responsible to get that. No, I am not trying to get along here. Those who voted for Democrats voted to destroy the country. Republicans who gave us Romney as the nominee are complicit. Rinos like Old Yellowstain Boehner are right in bed with Obama, Reid and Pelosi. The Democrat run news media will tell any lie to advance the cause of the destruction of America.

On the other hand, America is going to turn out to be more resilient than they think. I doubt Obama is all that much worse than Hitler and Germany recovered fairly well from the disasters he imposed on them over 12 years.

I definitely don't make "executive " pay, but that doesn't stop me from aspiring to make that kind of money. And when I do, I will not want to pay excessive amounts of taxes so others can loaf. Therefore, I'm not expecting to ask those already making that kind of money to pay more.

Wow, this thread only took four pages before Godwin's Law proved true once again. Wonder if that's a record?

Yes, a comparison to Hitler is only valid when it involves a conservative. Never mind that Hitler was the head of the National Democratic Socialist Workers Party. The only part of that Obama has avoided is the national.

But, I see by falling afoul of Godwin's Law I have automatically lost the argument. Of course, if I were a liberal I would have won the argument by comparing say Reagan to Hitler.

There is no win or loss implication. It's merely an observation.

If you're thinking I meant to attack you rest assured not. If so I'd have quoted it and said more.

Arizona... yeah...

I think I will side with History, Facts, Logic, Math, Proof and Reason - call me crazy all you want. I, psychologists, economists, historians and scientists will call GOPhers crazy.

"I hope one day to make that much" - yeah.. and you vote for the people who are stacking the deck against you, robbing you blind and telling you its the invisible 'free loaders' who are doing it.

Its funny, I am an Independent - fiscal conservative, social liberal - and the most ardent, dyed in the wool, 'conservative' Republicans that I know are on welfare or living off someone else.

When a Republican tells you they got where they are by hard work, ask them "Whose hard work?" - cause its not likely to have been their's.

It irritates me that people will do everything they can to not pay taxes and then have the nerve to complain about bad roads, crappy school systems, useless police, etc. and when they get in a bind, they are the first ones in line for a handout.
