    Do the Republican candidates Romney & Ryan leave you with a gaping hopeless chasm inside your soul?

    Following the recent Republican Conference, does the choice of opposition, namely; Romney and Ryan, serve as a depressing reminder and sour indication of the poverty of choice in US modern democracy?

    I'm sure they do that to the yellow dog demwits, who worship power for their party and are scared they're about to lose it.

      When Obama is unemployed next year no doubt he will try to collect on one of the entitlement programs he has promised everyone, on the taxpayer's dime. I also think Oprah might hire him as her go-fer. Biden, the circus always needs more clowns.

    No! Actually they are good for the soul. Each of them are good men. Romney has a long record of doing for others. Ryan is another success story of a different kind. They will be an improvement over what we now have.

      Right on. If we are talking soul, I want to hear about the soul of aborted babies.

      @BlackandGoldJack.....I feel for their souls. Never to be held and loved by their mothers and yet returned to God the Father. Satan is pleased by this but does he know abortion may swell the numbers of angels that will one day defeat him?

    No, but Baraak Obama does.

    And Joe Biden does even worse.

    Lord help us if Biden ever becomes president.

    No hopeless chasm, but they are the mere window dressing/PR people hiding the face of a very ugly corporate rightwinged beast who, as with Medusa, would turn any one to stone who is unfortunate enough to look upon it without protection. It is the beast's intention to remain concealed for as long as possible

    “Simply hating the other side is not an Ideology. It’s partisanship. It’s childishness. And it’s useless.” ~ Jack Hunter.

    It is not simply "useless"... it is counterproductive. Liberals, Conservatives and Libertarians are not separated by battle lines as The Machine (gov. & media) try to portray it and play it up.

    No... we are only separated by the fist pounding rhetoric coming out of The Machine's mouths, and only because we've been conditioned to believe their nonsense.

    I have very middle of the road perspective, though I tend to lean ever so slightly toward the conservative and libertarian ideals, but, I also see the value of a sensible social application, when we can afford it, and, we should try to find the means to afford it.

    Most of the country, I believe, is not as far away from "the opposing" view. It is the medias, and governance exaggerating the perspectives of the "other" guy to make their side seem ridiculous to whatever side you are on. They do this intentionally, it has the affect of draining us of our monies, time and keeping us all in opposition to one another. And in the long run frustrating us to the point of apathy, we no longer wish to deal with it, which too, is a desired goal of The Machine.

    I am here to say, John & Jane Q. Citizen are my family, I need to work with them to bring about the desires of their hearts, because the desires of their hearts are not bent for evil... regardless of how The Machine paints their picture.

    Just the opposite.  Romney and Ryan offer great hope for the nation. 

    During the past four years President Obama has managed to turn an economic downturn into a prolonged recession that rivals that of his 1930s predecessor, President Franklin Roosevelt. 

    Like President Roosevelt, President Obama has not hesitated to try to turn the United States into a European style welfare state at the same time the old line communist/socialist states like the Soviet Union and China have been abandoning that model and have been prospering as a result.  Western Europe itself is now in a major economic crisis as a result of the economic drag and decline resulting from their socialist leaning policies.

    Romney and Ryan, with their promises of tax cuts, deficit reduction, less regulation and smaller government offer the best hope for not only an economic turn around but also for restoring and maintaining our individual freedom.

      I agree with you Chuck, Romney and Ryan do represent what the American people need!.....and I know I do not want Obama in the White House for another term, since that would be a disaster!....Just imagine 4 more years of that guy......God help us!

    We are a commercial republic with a culture obsessed with money. Romney the Mormon does not bother me at all simply because he does not represent Jesus Christ in any way. He spent his life following the Bitch-Goddess Success, as D.H. Lawrence would call her. While President Obama tamed the goddess by prostituting himself with caresses, Romney fed her flesh and bone to gain her favor.
