They are alike.

I guess Romney's supporters haven't figured that out yet.

LOL

So, you will be voting for Romney then, right? No difference (except Romney actually has a resume, so that should break the tie, right?).

They are alike in some ways. Ron Paul and Barry are alike in some ways.

Of the choices we have left, there are differences. If you choose to see, the differences are there.

Do whatever you want, but be honest about it.

Name one way Ron Paul and Obama are alike. Show me one thing that Obama has done in his first term that coincides with Ron Paul's views. Just one.

Name one based on Romney's record and Obama's record. No identity politics crap.

I was thinking the same thing. Then I thought of every thing an individual prefers, and that some smat ***** would say they are alike in the running shoes they wear. More than just generally speaking, they are not alike by a long shot.

I tell you what, when you guys who are so upset with Romney find the perfect candidate, you tell us all about them and we'll vote them in.

There is a WORLD of difference between Romney/Ryan and Obama/Biden.

It is BIG.

Every Romney supporter says that, but they never articulate what the differences are.

Well guys here is what Romney put forth as his 5 point plan yesterday in High Point NC,

1. Energy independent North America using all resources including renewables.

2 .Education, give our children the skills to succeed.

3. Make international trade fair to America.

4. Reduce government spending and balance the budget.

5. Support small business. Make it good to build a business again.


So it you guys are right and Ron Paul is nothing like Romney, I would say that Romney IS the better choice since Ron Paul must be against those things according to you.

You've got to be kidding me. You're seriously going to take these super-vague campaign promises at face value?

Indeed, the two sides of the equation look vastly different but, there is still an equal sign between the two. It's either welfare or warfare. Either way, the money gets spent and the nation suffers.

So that's a yes. I'm a bit dismayed, but not at all surprised.

All great ideas, save for #2 (I've got real issues with government schools), but what in Romney's political past makes you believe he will actually do anything he says? You don't really believe he's actually going to reduce government spending and balance the budget, do you? By balance the budget, does he mean he's going to keep increasing spending but only at the projected rates? What a farce.

If you start the conversation by claiming that they are the same politician, then I'm guessing that people just don't bother to waste their time.

The question is still on the table,

"I was thinking the same thing. Then I thought of every thing an individual prefers, and that some smat ***** would say they are alike in the running shoes they wear. More than just generally speaking, they are not alike by a long shot."

So would Ron Paul support those things or not? If he did. wouldn't that make he and Romney alike?

Remember, Paul is just a politician too, no reason to take is word either, but would he SAY he supported those things?

I'm guessing instead, that there are no fundamental difference between the candidates.
