Re: To you third party voters
Republican leaders aren't supporting conservative politics. They certainly talk conservative principles, but once in office, they govern much like big government liberals. Even now with Obama in office, Republicans act like the loyal opposition and talk conservative. But talking the talk isn't the same as walking the walk.
When it comes to politicians, don't listen to what they say, look at what they do.
If Republicans had won the Presidency, how much would have changed? Would the USA PATRIOT Act get repealed? Would the NDAA get repealed? Would Obamacare get repealed? Would the debt and deficits be dealt with? They protest bailouts, reckless spending and expansion of government, but once in office, they end up supporting the same things. Maybe slightly smaller versions, but it's still the same concept.
We can sit here and blame libertarians for Obama winning, but the real reason he won is because there are more takers than makers in this country and the Republican Party is just more of the same IMO.
Samuel Adams once said, "among the natural rights of the colonists are these: first, a right to life, secondly to liberty, thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can."
