All the people I've met on this forum have been really kind toward me and I'm gonna give them the same respect regardless of who they voted for.
Sorry, but I call bs. You know I very much wanted Ron Paul to have a serious run for president. I tried my best to rally support for him, and when that failed I threatened to vote for him as a write-in. Eventually I had to face the fact that the only candidate with a chance to defeat Obama was Mitt Romney. Most everyone I know with any common sense came to the same conclusion. And yet there were still those who said they were voting for Gary Johnson or not voting at all. These people weren't stupid either, just stubborn. Well their stubbornness has cost us all dearly. We were so close to ridding the nation of this imposter and tyrant but you third party voters in your arrogance decided that you knew better than the rest of us what was best for the country. Now we are all supposed to be gracious. Well not me. You all have a right to your opinions but when your choices effect my liberty I'll have nothing more to do with you.
