The stars are aligned for Mitt Romney. In every Republican debate, he has been left relatively untouched by the moderators and by every candidate save Gov. Rick Perry of Texas. He continues to ride high in the national polling, holding steady at near one quarter of the likely Republican primary voters. The Republican Party bigwigs, including key funders on Wall Street, are throwing their support to him.
There's only one problem: He'll lose the general election.
He'll lose the general election for a very simple reason: Nobody in the conservative base is excited about him. While the so-called GOP opinion leaders wax on about how super-electable he is, they fail to recognize that it is precisely that logic that gave us the unelectable John McCain. Turnout wins elections these days, not appeals to the independent voter.
There is one other thing to think about, also. There are many in Ron Paul's camp calling for him to run as an independant, third-party candidate. :steamed::steamed::steamed: That would guarantee another four years of O.
pick someone who is not a socialist and who hates O , and everyone back him , splitting votes is ok IF there is no real option but its not a viable option with the evil thats in your white house at present , get it out , then deal with the new guy , but make it plain the voters are organised , so get organised
it dont matter so much who , as long as your all on the same page , get rid of obama , and replace him with someone not evil
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."

If Ron Paul stays in the race as a Republican, then you just may not get a chance to vote for him. At this time we don't know who the GOP will run. It doesn't matter to me. I would like to see Ron Paul, or Herman Cain as the GOP choice, but it will probably be Rick Perry, or Mitt Romney.
Y'all be safe now, ya hear!
