    Hey, I get to cast an absentee ballot in Georgia OR I get to walk into an embassy. Living abroad doesn't mean I can't vote. Actually if more Americans lived abroad, I think more people would realize how retarded American politics is. No, Obama is not a socialist... he's a corporatist. For example.

    But seriously, the only people whose vote actually matters are people who live in Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and one or two others.

    I've refuted this a number of times. If you want to think that I engage in faith-based politics (like I'm in some sort of Paul cult) go right ahead, if it makes your world simpler.

    And actually... let me flip this question around.

    You see if Ron paul had won the nomination (no really stop laughing) I'd back him up 100% because he mostly believes in what I believe in.
    If Romney cares about my vote, why hasn't he reached out to Ron Paul supporters (lets just say "voters that care a lot about personal freedoms").

    It's simple.

    Because he either doesn't care about my vote, or doesn't believe in things that I believe in.

    So why should I vote for him?

    If Ron Paul got the nomination both Moo and Lube would immediately drop them because by their very popularity they would become suspect and could no longer be trusted.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    So if Ron Paul was on the Republican ticket you'd not vote for him?

    Was there someone running that met those conditions?

    It's rather simple.

    Ron Paul , Gary Johnson , Newt Gingrich didn't make the cut. The election is between Romney & Obama and only 1 can/will win.

    Self determination is one of the most sacred rights and as part of that determination is the right to choose our government Representatives.

    self determination or self subrogation. A time to choose.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Because Rand Paul, who is probably closest to what you're looking for, is backing and campaigning for Romney.

    But like I told the other guy on here...I prefer that you don't vote for Romney.

    I have a job.

    I care about personal freedoms, so I can actually not feel like an assumed criminal walking around the United States as a US citizen.

    I want government to leave me alone. I want government to leave my property alone. Unless it has a warrant, that it presents to me when it is served. Does this actually sound like a Romney administration to you?
