Not sure if I'm conservative enough to be here but it's hard to find a place where I fit in (I voted for McCain in 2008 but I don't feel comfortable with Romney so I'm conflicted). Full disclosure, I am married to a union worker and am mostly pro-union, I'm also pro-choice but I believe in a strong military, a simplified tax code and the NRA. I promise to always be open minded and civil to everyone (except nickleback fans :evil-grin:)

Good question.

Welcome, there's no litmus test on how conservative you have to be. We're mostly pretty open minded.

My husband, SarasotaRepub, went to high school in Wisconsin, somewhere outside Milwaukee. I had good friends who lived in Madison. You're in a beautiful state.

I would guess these to be about the only real litmus test here;

1. Do you support Obama enough to vote him back in?

2. Support the military?

3. Are you a Paul-bot?

4. How well do you stand up to spelling and grammar Nazis? (You know those who I speak of)

1. I am honestly undecided about the election, personally I think it is more important to have a majority in the Senate so I will be voting for Tommy Thompson and I may not cast a vote for president (hope that's not enough to ban me for)
2. I absolutely support the military but I would honestly like to see some of our defense dollars go to pay our troops more.
3. I am NOT a paultard, I think he's the candidate of choice for hipsters, pot heads and frat boys.
4. I am kind of a grammar Nazi myself but I'm also a serial punctuation abuser so I guess I'm a conundrum wrapped in a riddle :smile-new:

Hope these answers helped

See..but it's really not.

1 vote for Obama = 1 vote
0 votes for Obama = 0 votes

Simple math.

Well in your simple world melon lube it maybe true but in reality its different.

If you need a set number of votes to beat a person and every paul bot, "confused conservate" doesn't vote that makes it just that much harder considering you are trying to get rid of someone much worse the Romney, but when obama wins and you didn't vote against him I hope you principals keep you warm at night.

Thats funny cause in reality 1 still = 1. Not voting for Obama still equals zero votes.

And I really didn't want to talk about the Romney..but since you asked:


Sorry dude......I just can't bring myself to cast a vote for someone who stands against everything I believe. So yes...my principles keep me warm.


BTW: Scarborough is a Conservative and gives him a double facepalm. It ain't just me folks.

Like I've said before. Stop blaming voters who are sick of being served up shat and aren't buying it anymore, and start blaming the G O P for not picking a winner.

Blaming the GOP? "The GOP" didn't install Romney as the nominee, he was voted for by GOP voters. I'm not sure blaming the establishment is the way to go.

I will vote for anyone other than Obama because I don't think they can't make things worse and I know that Obama will. To abstain from voting is to vote to make things worse.
