Thread: Republican Presidential Candidates

  1. #1

    Default Republican Presidential Candidates

    So I will get to vote in this election for president. So I've been looking around at the people who could replace Obama and quite frankly the US is screwed. The top 5 candidates all think that religion is being attacked by liberals and by religion they only mean Christianity. They also are all against gay marriage and rights to the point they have voiced plans to make an amendment to the constitution that states marriage can only be between a man and a woman (except for Paul who thinks it's none of the governments business).
    As much as I dislike Obama, he's a lot better than the people running against him. They seem to think that by shoving their religion and morals down other's throats the US will get better.

    Just wanted to get everyone's thoughts on the matter.

    Check out Ron Paul, he is religous but he believes rights don't come from being black, gay or female but because your an individual. He is flipping AWESOME. Youtube him and have your eyes consume all.

    I agree but pole wise he is in third (I know polls aren't that accurate) so I don't have much hope in him becoming the candidate

    personally i dont like any of the canidates, i dont know enough about ron paul and he is still to conservative for me and i dont think obama is left enough on some issues. The fact that most of the republican candidates cant get there facts right says some things to, michelle bachman being the worst. while i support obama for me personally he needs to stop negotiating with the republicans, this is some of the reason he's losing some support. maybe 2016 will bring a really good canidate but for right now i dont know whats going to happen.

    Mitt is the only one who could beat Obama
    Get over Ron Paul he will NEVER beat obama. Hes too religious/conservative.

    I dont think anyone running is really that great, just picking the best of the worst.

    You guys really need to look into Buddy Roemer. He's currently a long shot, because he will not accept PAC money at all. All his funding is via personal donations with a $100 limit.

    He's also sane, intelligent, and the only person I've ever seen suggest a flat tax that doesn't make me want to bludgeon him with an economics text book.

    The problem is I can't support someone who thinks that I don't have a right to have a husband if I so choose and then tries to argue "equal rights for all". Personally I like the government not doing anything. They tend to screw things up when they try.

    I imagine that I'll hold my nose and vote for Obama. As a liberal, I'm extremely disappointed that I have to vote for a moderate who may even be tilting right at this point, but the alternative is worse.

    As for gay marriage, if we have a Republican president who gets to replace Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, I may not see DOMA overturned until my life is more than halfway over.

    If I'm mistaken aren't all the republican candidates against gay marriage? If so why would you vote for anyone in that party if they are vehemently against something you find very important?

    That's just the tip of the iceberg for what's wrong with this year's GOP candidates. Rick Perry and Michelle Backmann are both backed by Dominionists (a radical Christian cult with very deep pockets that seeks to impose Bible law onto all citizens). Then there is Newt Gingrich who wants to revoke child labor laws. Michelle Bachmann wants to revoke minimum wage laws as well as shut down the EPA, FDA, and USDA (gee... endorsing food poisoning is good for America?!) There's Mitt Romney,who actually said that he believes that corporations are people. All five major candidates want to gut Social Security and Medicare and pass the spending cuts on to the richest of the rich. Bachmann wants to start yet another war. None of them know a damned thing about the Constitution, freedom, or peace. All of them value multi-national corporations over human beings. None of them respect religious freedom for non-Christians. None of them believe in science. None of them have even a hint of a coherent plan to tackle the massive employment and financial problems this country has. All they do is blame gays, "socialists", and union workers when the real cause is unchecked corporate greed and financial recklessness in the banking industry. All of them harp on "morality". But Newt Gingrich abandoned his cancer-stricken wife to marry the woman with whom he was cheating on his wife with. Rick Perry stated that he "never lost a minute of sleep" when asked how he felt about executing a man who was almost assuredly innocent (little forensic data and 10 of the 12 witnesses later recanted after trial). None of them know a thing about history (note to Rick Perry: the Civil War did not occur in the 1500s). They also espouse this ridiculous "War on Christmas" and "War on Religion", when the former is non-existent while in the latter they are the aggressors against practitioners of non-majority faiths.

    There is not one good candidate in this mix. Not one single member of this crows represents mainstream America. Not one has even a nanogram of compassion for anyone who isn't a fabulously wealthy heterosexual married conservative Christian.
