From your point of view, which is fine.
No, it is not. My state convention has not taken place yet. The national convention has not taken place yet. The race is not over.
Oh stop. It's nothing but a formality at this point. It's the 3rd quarter and Team Romney is winning 99-0. Half the other team has gone home. It's over, and deep down I think you know it. You don't like it, but you know it.
I thought I didn't have a chance of even being selected as an alternate delegate in my district last night.
You had a much greater chance of that than Ron Paul does wrt winning the GOP nomination. By many orders of magnitude.
What you fail to understand - in spite of me repeating it over and over - is that from my perspective there is no meaningful difference between Obama or Romney. None. We've been over this.
That's not what I asked you. I asked if Romney is ANY better in ANY way. Don't give me this "from my perspective" and "meaningful way" nonsense. The question is whether you think Romney is even marginally
better than Obama. That's all I'm asking.
This is what we are dealing with:
The only candidate who is proposing real solutions for this mess - such as cutting $1 trillion in his first year in office - is Ron Paul.
You can't do that. It will hurt the economy by pulling money out too quickly.
The only candidate talking about auditing the Federal Reserve and holding it accountable is Ron Paul.
That's fine. Paul is not one of the legitimate choices, especially in the GOP race.
The only candidate talking about allowing competition in currency is Ron Paul.
You mean domestically? Like states issuing their own money? That's nuts.
None of the other stuff really matters if we collapse under the weight of our own debt - which we will unless some drastic measures are taken to turn things around.
Romney and Obama aren't talking about any of this. It's completely off their radars.
Ron Paul has been talking about this for 30 years. And he's right.
That's objectively false. Romney talks about the debt and deficit all the time...constantly. He's also been critical of the Fed, though he doesn't favor ending it. Romney's record is not one of ever expanding debts and deficits, either.
