“If he keeps thinking this is all a big campaign and his best chance of winning is to try to destroy the Republican House leaders, were utterly screwed because the country will grind to a halt and implode”.
The Fed Gov will grind to a halt, not the country. I hope it does, and that the Fed Gov implodes. I would love to see it self destruct. We built this country without the Fed Gov, and we can rebuild it when it’s gone for good.

“So, are all of you going to sulk, whimper, and whine or do the patriotic thing and demand that your senators and representatives work with the President to move this country forward for everyone?”
Gradstudent: go to hell. It was *your* side that was posting Tweets by the *thousands* threatening to start riots, threatening to kill Romney if he won. As for myself, I intend to keep my Reps and Senators reminded as to why I voted for them, and to make sure they oppose the other guy every step of the way.

“Well, you wasted your vote this election. Feel good now?”
No, not really. My first Presidential was 2008, and I enthusiastically supported Sarah Palin and her running mate. This time, I did the “practical” thing and voted for Romney/Ryan, though, as in 2008, I supported Paul in the Primaries.
Well, no more. Come 2016 (assuming there *is* an election) I will vote my conscience. I probably will never vote for a winner, and the GOP has lost me forever. If they can’t beat this guy, despite everything: extremely bad economy, no record to run on, nothing but incompetence, then they can’t beat *anyone*. As far as I’m concerned, a vote for the GOP is a wasted vote.

Not me, I *refuse* to die for this country because it isn’t worth my life. The people had a choice, and their choice was “give me that”. Well, freeloaders, I give up: I am no longer a producer. I will do whatever I have to do to protect myself and my own. To hell with the rest of you.

You, sir, are highly mistaken. I don’t “love” Obama. I don’t *know* Obama. I have never so much as *met* Obama. Neither do I “respect” him: I voted against him in 2008, and I campaigned and voted against him in 2012.
I do not respect him; I do not admire him. He is not “my” president, and I will oppose him every step of the way from now until he is retired. As far as I’m concerned, Congressional grid lock that paralyzes the Fed Gov is our only hope. And I hope for *massive* grid lock, and the upcoming irrelevance of the Fed Gov.

Mikey is another flaming *******: it’s not like you can get arsenic at every corner 7-11. Secondly, you want to talk about painful, slow, lingering death, well, that describes arsenic poisoning. There are *way* better ways to off yourself.
******** are not only stupid to the N-th degree, they are down right evil. To them, there is no such thing as an honest difference of opinion. Any disagreement is a sign that you are “defective”, that you are an “enemy” to be destroyed.
That’s what Bill Ayers wrote in _You Don’t Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows_: 25 million Americans may need to be eliminated. He meant every word. Their votes count as much as yours. Be afraid, be very afraid.
like in any war, never assume; and never assume that the enemy is playing by your rules. The leftists do not play with a normal set of rules. Like petulant children, no. 1 is that they will get their way, and will do anything, repeat, anything, to achieve their goals.
read marx, read alinsky, listen ayers, read the facials on BHO. anger, hate, revenge, their way or death. Not the highway....You will be buried under the highway in place of some crushed stone.
What is this? It is called evil. You cannot reason with evil. You can only defend against evil, and can only fight evil, and can only defeat it for a while. Like mold and fungus, it will come back, then we need to expose it to sunlight once again. This is our job here on Earth.

They can’t. Not any more. It’s not John F. Kennedy’s Democratic Party. (And, yeah, I know all about JFK’s peccadilloes, however, at least he kept them discreet. Unlike a certain POTUS from Hope, or a candidate who couldn’t stay away from the sleazy rendezvous.)

Nine y/o Brandon seems to be reasonably intelligent. I wonder: it doesn’t look to me like he’s taking what he’s saying seriously. There’s the giggling, as he talks about “change the world”, like he’s heard it all before, and more times than he cared to, the making devil horns behind his father’s back as soon as he appears in the scene. Kids don’t like being lectured, harangued, and told what to think. It shows here.
Looks like a rehearsed performance to me, and I wonder what was the point of this? Doesn’t reflect favorably on Obama supporters at all. When I was nine, I had my own ideas, my parents never harangued me about who to say I supported in elections, and I *barely* cared there was even a Presidential coming up.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if Brandon develops “daddy issues” and turns into a life-long Republican voter?

Who cares what this old fool “thinks” about anything? Doesn’t deserve the publicity.

“…theyre using kids who are too young to think intelligently for themselves to spread this propaganda!”
Don’t underestimate kids. When I was in 4th grade (10 y/o) the class read this story of a Chinese pear merchant and a beggar. During the discussion that followed, I pointed out that the merchant didn’t owe the beggar even the “poorest pear” from his push cart. I pointed out that the merchant at the very least took care of the trees, picked the pears, and was bringing them to market with no guarantees he’d sell any. I also pointed out that of all the people telling the merchant he should give the beggar a pear, not a single one stepped forward to say let the beggar pick his pear, and I’ll pay for it.
In the end, the pear merchant gave in, and the beggar planted a seed and magically grew a pear tree that gave everyone free pears. I said that was a rather nasty way for the beggar to show his gratitude: ruining his chance to sell his pears.
It would be another 5, maybe 6, years until I heard the name “Ayn Rand”.
I knew right from wrong, and even when I was 8, I knew that the _Mighty Mouse_ reruns I watched were *pure* propaganda. From Middle School on, I always referred to “Social Studies” as Socialist Studies, and I always told them what I knew what they wanted to hear, not what I believed.
For all I know, these kids aren’t thinking of anything other than the fat checks their parents will cash, or the scholarship BUX they’re getting for a few min

“Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea”
OK, I imagined that America. I like it. “Oil fills the sea”: you mean I don’t have to worry about Peak Oil now? Yeay! 25 cents per gallon of gas? Yeay! Gays can be fixed: you say that like it’s a *bad thing*.
“Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff”
You *will* get endless wars if you vote for Obama, and then you really will have something for which to blame your parents. Remember Libya? He *added* a war to GWB’s endless war collection. He *failed* to get out of Iraq and he failed to get out of Afghanistan, *and* he attacked Pakistan. You remember Pakistan? They are supposed to be an *ally*!
“Big Bird is sacked
And the atmosphere is frying”
If Big Bird isn’t popular enough to attract lots of advertising BUX, T’hellwiddim. “The atmosphere is frying”. Sounds good to me; I *hate* winter and cold weather with a passion. I’m looking forward to it.
So all this will come to pass if I vote for Romney? Are you *sure* this is a pro-Obama advert? I mean, you convinced me: I’m voting for Romney!

“This connection, experts believe, might be behind some of the doomsday scenarios; however, there is no evidence the Maya were aware this astronomical phenomenon fell on the same day as the end of their long count”.
And this, I do not believe. The Maya were too good with astronomy to not know this. It would have been the ideal occasion to end a baktun. As for the doomsday nonsense, I heard it from a relative who just bought a really nice BMW SUV. I told him I’d give him $100 *right now*, but he had to sign over the title to me on the morning of the 22nd.
He didn’t take me up on that offer. I wonder why?

It wasn’t that long ago that the existence of this kind of weapon would be considered classified, developed and held under the cloak of a “black” program.
This is not true because there is nothing new about it. Nikola Tesla had a working prototype in the 1890s. It is all quite well known. The reason you probably haven’t heard of it before is that so long as all electronics was vacuum tube based, an EMP attack would accomplish nothing. It is the reason the USSR kept VT technology alive: an EMP *will not* ruin VT-based electronics.
If the bad guy terrorists were smarter, they’d be considerably more dangerous.
There is nothing to classify because this is just a new wrinkle on 19th century tech.

1) Time is a dimension, a property of the universe. Even Augustine understood that, *way* before General Relativity. Time is meaningless outside the universe (or at a singularity which makes event horizons a *good thing*).
2) Lorenz Contraction: If you were in a space ship traveling at the speed of light, a dust speck right off the nose of your ship would seem as close as the most distant quasar. You would literally be in all places at once. Would make navigation problematic. Upon hitting the brakes, you might find yourself right back where you started, or millions of light years off course.
3) Water can exist as solid, liquid, and vapour. It does so stably at its Triple Point temp (273.16 Kelvins; 611.73 Pascals).
4) Does it? Not so sure about this one.

“The reason you have the ability to put this ad together is because of nothing you have done yourself. Completely unearned, God gave you the gift of genetic beauty and nothing between your ears”.
Nice back handed reference to “You didn’t build that” :-D
*Nothing* they said was true. “End funding for Planned Parenthood”? So Mitt will make it illegal to voluntarily donate to PP? What did PP do *before* the gov’t began subsidizing them?
“Invasive ultrasound”? And an abortion *isn’t* invasive? Even if Romney should happen to get Rowe v. Wade overturned, that would change *nothing*. All it would do is leave it up to each state to decide yes, no, maybe on abortion.
“Redefining rape”? Name the Republican Rep or Senator who introduced that legislation.
These Democrats keep talking about this “War on Women”, and you’d think this is the *last* thing they would want to mention. After all, the only politician with a confirmed kill in the WoW was a Democrat: Teddy Kennedy. The concept of irony goes right over the heads of these lefties with parsecs to spare.

“Your rhetoric of “holding their feet to the fire” sounds good but your actions of voting for a man who so recently and often votes for more spending speaks volumes!”
Paul Ryan isn’t my problem since I don’t live in his district, nor within 1000 miles of his state. In my state and district, we had a rep who talked conservative while campaigning, and voted the opposite in DC. We got rid of this career politician, this double dealing RINO, with a successful challenge in the primaries. If the new guy wins, we send one more conservative to Congress. This is what needs to be done, and if done often enough, the “Paul Ryans” will get the message. It won’t happen over night, and there are no knights in shining armour who can fix everything all at once.
The US of A wasn’t broke overnight, and it won’t get fixed overnight. “We the People” need to do our part. It’s ultimately our responsibility.

No, Brother Smith, it is not “propaganda”, and I speak for no one but myself and have never said otherwise.
“REAL Ron Paul folks WILL NEVER VOTE FOR ROMNEY! Romney is IDENTICAL TO OBAMA and we KNOW EXACTLY WHAT WE WILL GET, as he has a LEFTIST RECORD TO GUIDE US!”
Ideological purity is fine and dandy, except that it doesn’t win elections. Sure, we admire all the “Mr. Smiths” who go to Washington, but we don’t vote for them in presidentials. More’s the pity. “Romney is IDENTICAL TO OBAMA”: if you are right about this, then it makes no difference who wins, does it? However, what if you are wrong? I *KNOW* that Obama is identical to Obama, and he will *never* bend our way. Not on ideological grounds, and certainly not as he knows a second term is his last term, and he won’t have to pretend anymore. I’d rather take a chance on Romney, and the possibility he’ll see at least some things our way. That means staying engaged, paying attention, and holding his feet to the fire.
If the Ship of State is headed straight for an iceberg, the best course of action is to spin the wheel and steer past it. If the pilot isn’t going to do that, I prefer he telegraphs the engine room for half steam ahead (Romney) than full steam ahead (Obama). We need to buy more time to get the establishment types out of office, starting at the local level.
Come November, vote your conscience and I’ll vote mine.

I respect Ron Paul immensely and supported him in 2008 and this year. The GOP faithful should have supported him and nominated him, but they didn’t.
Yes, he’s right: Romney *is* the candidate of the elite, of politics as usual, everything Paul said. There is one difference: I know precisely what I’m getting with Obama. With Romney, we have a chance: he might bend our way, even if it’s just a little bit. He has that incentive if he desires a second term. Obama will have *ZERO* incentive to bend our way at all.
I would like to make that protest vote, either Paul as a write-in or Johnson. In 2016, we’ll see. This November, it’s Romney/Ryan. There is no other choice, and we hold their feet to the fire instead of heaving that sigh of relief that the Republic dodged a bullet and we can all go back to sleep for another four years.
Amen. We don't win by throwing the cards we've been dealt into the air. We win by playing wisely.
Romney has one difference from the elite and that is he is a humble man of God! The elite don't have that at all! I believe Romney may be our Abraham Lincoln!
No, this is pure propaganda. From beginning to end. REAL Ron Paul folks WILL NEVER VOTE FOR ROMNEY! Romney is IDENTICAL TO OBAMA and we KNOW EXACTLY WHAT WE WILL GET, as he has a LEFTIST RECORD TO GUIDE US!
Most Romney propagandists will make themselves VERY VISIBLE by claiming "I like Ron Paul" or "I supported Ron Paul." It's a card player's tell that gives them away every time. The "praise" will ALWAYS BE FOLLOWED with a "but" or "however"... and then some RIDICULOUS GIBBERISH justifying a vote for leftist, progressive, chickenhawking Romney.
Although the clumsy propaganda is rather irrelevant, as the leftist GOP has ALREADY REELECTED OBAMA in Tampa, by CHEAT-nominating Romney. Same SCAM they pulled in 08 with McCain.

On 9/13/12 Paul Ryan voted yes on another 1.6 TRILLION dollar continuing resolution. Now on 11/6/12 you are going to vote for him. When do you plan on holding his feet to the fire? For 12 years in congress he has constantly voted to put this country in debt and even while running for VP as a fiscal conservative genius continues to do the same. Your rhetoric of "holding their feet to the fire" sounds good but your actions of voting for a man who so recently and often votes for more spending speaks volumes!
We don't abandon ship. I'm a Republican. I will work to improve my party. I will suck it up, do what's best with what I've got. I don't have strict loyalty to one party, but I sure as heck won't let it go up in flames. The Democrats have let their Party turn into a Marxist's dream. We in the TEA party are doing a good job at returning the GOP back to its grassroots efforts. Sure, it won't be a smooth ride, but that's part of the price we have to pay for allowing our nation to get to such a deteriorated state. This will be as hard as it is for a smoker to quit, but it must be done. We're gaining momentum. Now is not the time for us to start fighting with each other. We're better than that. Our nation deserves better. Our founders greatly emphasized UNITY.
"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed..." We STILL HAVE A CHANCE to get back on course.
There is a time for everything. It's all about strategy. The elitists want us to fight each other. Don't fall into their traps. Think. Be patient.

@DORUGREMON Have you noticed that Ryan is the VP candidate that you will be voting for? So he will be your problem and you people voting for a person with his record are the problem.
