I long maintained the race will end up a fight between Ron and Mitt. Mitt might take the nuclear option and make a deal with The Frothy One for a VP slot in exchange for his pledged delegates, but I'm not sure that such a ticket would excite voters in November.

Romney seems to favor Rubio as his VP from what I read, but I have to admit that my interest in the primary has dropped recently. Maybe Mitt will have to make the VP deal with Santorum in order to win the convention. It would probably ensure him a victory in the bible belt, but would East Coast Republicans vote for a radical like Santorum? Maybe RS is even satisfied with a cabinet position below VP (head of a department) in exchange for his delegates. I think running the DHS would really be a good job for him

I hope Ron Paul somehow manages to win a big state (California? Texas?), so we get a brokered convention. This seems to be the only chance to stop Mitt now.

Romney Paul would be a good ticket. It would pick up a hell of a lot of swing votes too.

If I can't find Paul on some ticket, for the first time in decades, I just won't vote. I'm sick of trying for the lesser of two evils, only to find out that evil is just evil. In this case, there's hardly any "lesser" involved anyway.

Paul will probably be on the ticket of Americans elect: http://www.americanselect.org/ (and the constitution party?)

Unfortunately, I predicted Romney vs. Obama, with an Obama win six months ago. I still see nothing that would make me think otherwise. I will still write in Ron Paul in the general election.

I plan to vote for Ron. Period.

A Romney/Paul ticket might actually beat Obama, but I would be surprised if Romney changed his tune enought to convince Ron to join, even given Romney's propensity to say whatever is convenient.

DC, instead of not voting, go and write in who you want. It still accomplishes not endorsing an evil, and gives you the chance to voice your opinion. Obviously not many are going to be listening to that opinion, but staying home guarantees nobody will listen.


sa, when I read the thread title I was expecting a news link from Tehran.

The best position for the Frothy One is Head of the Department of His Own Damn Business.

This is the shoot the sht subforum, we can talk about whatever here, Penn.

I don't like write ins, and I don't like 3rd parties. Because I've known some poll watchers and they just toss those votes over their shoulders when they are not for either of the parties that have those, "good-good?" and they get tossed out entirely.

One of the few things that can shut me up is the absolute certainty that no one is listening.

Whenever you choose the lesser of two evils ... you are still choosing evil.

Yes, it was directly related to this.

/sarc means comment was sarcastic.

There is hardly a lesser evil to pick in a Romney vs Obama match up. I wrote about it a few months ago here:

http://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...d.php?t=213797

They are have very similar views on many subjects. People may think we have a choice between red or blue, but honestly the choice is blue or slightly darker blue.

And even when they claim to have very different views, say Bush-Obama, the same crap happens. Leads one to think they are liars, stupid - or completely controlled by some external force whose views don't change. Were this the hoary old SAT tests, I'd be looking for D: All of the above as one of the answers.

This is a tough one for me. On one hand, if Obama wins a second term, he can't blame the last four years on anyone but himself, but on the other hand, we will have a social fascist in charge who wants total government control and the ability to tax everyone in to oblivion. He will also go after the guns using any and all methods both legal and illegal.

If we get Romney, it will be a complete crapshoot all the way.

I don't think we want Obama in there during the collapse. He's been able to do a lot of damage already. Can you imagine how bad it would be if he was a lame duck?

I think we want a guy in there that actually wants to keep his job.

Ron Paul is the only candidate who will try and directly reduce the size of government and get us out of the intractible wars we are bound up in. He is also the only one who believes in sound money. I wish his message would get equal air time, but TPTB will never allow it. His only and distant hope would be to catch a Veep slot and shortly after inaguration day, the Prez has a fatal accident or heart attack. There simply is no other way he can get anywhere close to the Presidency.

I wonder, derek - we know it's going to tank, so who do we want to get the blame?
That's one consideration. We here know that who gets the blame might not be the main one deserving it, but to the people, that doesn't matter as long as there's someone to blame it on.

Also - there seems to be little to zero difference in the social dictatorship ambitions between the parties - only which thing they want more control over first.

And we have a counter-intuitive conundrum here - the worse whoever is in a clutch, the more likely we stop slow boiling the frogs and crank up the heat to where the sheep notice a problem...There, it's hard to pick a winner for the same reason - is there really any difference?

I mean, a choice between two stuffed-shirt fakers who lied their way to the top? Both of whom have track records of doing very differently than they say? What sort of choice is that?
