You want to compromise and vote for a compromising candidate that is your right. I voted for who I could believe in and stand behind and it wasn't Romney. I am not the reason the Republicans lost, the Party bosses and the mainstream media and apathy from all the couch sitters who were not inspired to exorcise their right to vote are the reason Republicans did not take the day. I voted straight Republican since I became a Goldwater Republican to the horror of my strictly Democrat family. I stayed true to the party till 1993 when George H. W. Bush and his adviser Colin Powell stopped short of victory and then after leaving office and giving us Dole he slammed the NRA for their stance on guns. They were fine as long as they were throwing their support behind him but when he didn't need them he ditched them.
I am was and will be an Allan Keyes backer till he or I turn room temperature and if you will look carefully he is a Republican but a steadfast stand by his principles and not change his stance depending on which way the winds blow type of politician. That is why I voted for Gary, same kind of man.
Yet you blame me for your candidate losing, duh! I'm the guy pushing people to learn the issues, to learn what their rights are, to go beyond what you see on TV but nope, I'm the whipping boy, I beat Romney, makes sense to me. Sorry about the name calling but you do know how to push my buttons.
Hey I work on appliances, of course I know how to push buttons.
Look, I was angry and you guys were the closest target I could hit. For that I apologize. I'm still pissed off though. I'm sure you've never taken your anger out on someone who didn't deserve it. But unlike you, I'm not perfect
What annoys me most about you Grump is you. In another thread you yelled at everyone for quitting and taking their bat and going home. But that is what you did, isn't it. You got mad at Bush 41 and quit. You took your bat and went home. Instead of trying to help fix the Republican party, you left it. And then get mad at others for doing the same thing. Am I happy with my party? NOPE. Do I still plan on leaving it? Not sure at the moment. I"M NOT A QUITTER! I think we can fix it. But we need everyone.
As for Alan Keyes. Yea he's a good guy. I like him. But he wasn't electable then, and he's never run for Pres. since. Help us find another Keyes, or get the bastard to run again. The reason he wasn't electable then, was he had never held a public office. I don't know if he has since.
