My guess is he is on the " anybody but Obama " train.

Mine too. Romney might be the answer, but IMO he is a step in the right direction. I like Ron Paul and I know a lot of other people do as well. the problem is that voting for Ron Paul will end up being a vote for Obama. The independents and middle of the road people will be what determines this election. I certainly do not want another 4 years of our current, so called leader.

Here's a poll for you:

a) Vote for Obmney.

b) Get involved with your local government & community, to do what you can, where you are, with what you got.

We have to hope romney can somehow slow things down and that we can put someone in office in 2016 that can actually make a difference.

I agree til then we need to be active with our local and state gov't.

The road the U.S. is headed down right now is a path to distruction and I hope it changes.

Romney And Obama have more in common than they don't.

Yes I agree that we all need to be involved with our local government, I live in the liberal stronghold of IL, I see first hand everyday what these people do in the name of "the greater good". I would love for a real candidate to step forward and bring about change that is actually good for the country.

I cannot discount the "lesser of two evils" arguement. I do wish that third party/independent candidates had a system to run in that wasn't so slanted against them.
