How is Mitt or Newt Different than Obama?
« on: January 29, 2012, 10:56:22 AM »
Since Mitt and Newt both supported the bailouts, an individual healthcare mandate and cap & trade (Newt even did an ad with Pelosi for it), please explain to me how either would be much different than Obama.

Romney's the weakest of the bunch and he would be tremendously better than Obama. Newt was Speaker and balanced at least 4 budgets undef a Democrat President. Newt will Nuke Obama in the debates.

I would like to know if all the supporters of each of the GOP candidates will vote for the GOP nominee or will you stay home or vote 3rd party and effectively vote fir Obama?

Mr Romney can bring another first into american politics - the Mormon god into the Whitehouse and into influence around the globe. Mr Obama or Mr Gringrich could never do that.

I see you're still looking for a way to place blame on anyone else. We all know Mitt Obomney & Newtama Gingrinch are going to lose big time in the general. You know it as well as I do. Folks just will not be able to hold their noses long enough to get past the stench. So you want to blame the failures of the partisans who chose these guys in the primaries on those who will not elect them in the general. How sad it that? Picking losers in the beginning will only give a loser in the end. But what else can one expect from folks who get all their information from the yellow journalism of corporate media. A media that now only represents the interests of the corporatist, not the interests of the People. Talking head TV is now nothing more than a long infomercial on a 24 hour cycle. So many wonder why so many are truly uninformed when they are staring at the problem for hours on end every day. So sad.

So I take it from your response you will be casting an effecrive vote for Obama after Ron Paul fails  to get enough support for the nomination. I plan to vote for the GOP nominee whoever it is. He will be the only being on earth with any chance to defeat Obama.

We've been down this road before.

Of course I will not for evil.

It's a crying same you partisans put party above principle. Then expect folks to concur with your poor choices.


You partisans rail against Obama's support of the "Isms" , then present others who support the same "Isms" as the solution.


Then will not to take responsibility for your poor choices, blaming those who refuse to be complicit in your poor choices.

As of this election year both parties have moved so far left it appears the John Birch Society has been completely vindicated.

With Mitt & Newt we are talking about a pair of Global Warming Hoax supporters, Carbon tax cap & trade supporters, UN supporters, WTO supporters, etc. etc. These guys support some of the most radical, extreme, & unbelievable nonsense on the planet. Just like Obama.

What I'm amazed at , is that they have not been tarred & feathered then ran out of town on a rail.


And you honestly expect anyone to vote for them?

You will vote for Obama by not voting fir the GOP nominee. I am not a partisan. I could care less about the GOP machine, other than it is a reality that we will either vote for Obama directly or indirectly. The GOP nominee is the only person on the planet with any chance to beat Obama. I support your right to vote your choice in the primary even though I will vote for another candidate. I will vote for the GOP nominee if I want remove Obama. If I don't I will stay home or xast a meaningless 3rd party vote. You guys do as you wish, but just know there is only one non-Obama
vote. Do I like it, not especially, but it most certainly is reality.

Then why are you pushing the false Logic of just supporting the R's no matter what?

How is replacing one extremist Global Warming Hoax supporter, Carbon tax cap & trade scam supporter, UN supporter, WTO supporter, with another extremist Global Warming Hoax supporter, Carbon tax cap & trade scam supporter, UN supporter, WTO supporter going to fix any thing? or change any thing?

There is no false logic. A Republican or a Democrat will win. I choose to vote for the Republican rather than the Democrat directly or indirectly. Tell Ron Paul to change his whacky statements on Iran and he might win. If that were his goal!

I will vote with gusto for him even if he doesn't change his stance if he is the nominee. I will pray with all my being that he will not mount a third  party  Obama booster. I wish Ron Paul well, but he could really do his campaign a service if he modified his Iran stance. Not asking for a war mongering stance. Just look in a Youtube camera and admit that Iran IS a threat to world peace. (with us being part of "world"). Not in the sense of them attacking us, don't go there, but in a sense of them creating a regional then obviously worldwide involvement, where we will have no choice.

Again, please don't misapply my statements to imply that Israel needs our help. THEY DON'T. The world will need our help after their retaliation.

Make no mistake, I am no party guy. I just recognize that with the structure in place, you can take it to the bank that it is going to be either the democrat or the Republican nominee that will be President. A protest non vote or 3rd party vote has impact on one of those two nominees. Should it be different? Probably, but to BE different the political system must change. I just think it is SO critical to get Obama out that I can't endorse or vote for anyone after the primaries but the one person that has a chance to beat Obama, the GOP nominee. If we need to change the system, let's do it, but it is too late to change the Presidential election system for 2012.

Still pushing the Iran fear-mongering I see.   Even though though you are aware of the over-whelming evidence to the contrary. That Iran is a puppet state to Russia & China & completely dependent on them for the nuclear & military capability.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/jul/5/irans-nuclear-program-helped-by-china-russia/
http://meria.idc.ac.il/journal/2004/issue1/jv8n1a7.html
http://www.wisconsinproject.org/countries/iran/nuke-miles.htm
http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=29604

As you already know any real negotiations or efforts to do anything about a nuclear problem in Iran has to be addressed with China & Russia. They are Iran's nuclear industry. If & when Iran ever gets the 'bomb' it's because Russia & China give it to them. Plus China & Russia has gone on record stating an attack on Iran is an attack on them.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/01/13/iran-russia-nato-idUSL6E8CD2XU20120113

So unless US is ready to start WW3 it's all sabre rattling as you well know. Sabre rattling for cover of the economic alliances being built behind the scenes. Which you already know about.

China is working behind the scenes to establish its currency at the reserve currency by taking direct action against the US dollar current status.

Back in October China announced a new bank that would trade in the Yuan with an invitation towards South Korea & more importantly Japan. http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/10/27/us-china-asean-financial-idUSTRE79Q2F520111027

On December 25 China & Japan announced  direct trading with the Yen & the Yuan no longer trading with the US Dollar. Remember Japan is the 2cnd largest consumer of Iranian oil, now they can just buy Iranian oil from China instead of Iran.
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-12-25/china-japan-to-promote-direct-trading-of-currencies-to-cut-company-costs.html

December 25 Japan also announced it would be investing in Chinese Government Bonds as well.
http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/12/25/us-japan-china-bonds-idUSTRE7BO06G20111225

December 28 Japan loans India 15 Billion to shore up Rupee against Western/European currency crisis pulling the 3rd largest Asian economy into dependency on the Japan/China alliance and way from the US.

https://rt.com/news/iran-india-gold-oil-543/
http://www.forexcrunch.com/gold-for-oil-india-and-iran-ditch-dollar-report/
"According to a new and yet unconfirmed report, India bought oil from Iran using gold. India certainly has the gold resources to fund the oil,"
"The step joins Russia and Iran’s announcement to begin trading in their own domestic currencies rather than use the US dollar"

These are major steps in China's growing global alliance, especially the moves that are consolidating partnerships with historical US allies such as Japan, South Korea, & India.

It was just two years ago in December that Russia & China agreed on direct trade of currency as well.
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/15/business/global/15iht-ruble15.html

These are huge stories with major & lasting impacts you are not hearing discussed on corporate media opinion news.

On December 7 Chinese President Hu Jintao told the Chinese military to "prepare for war"? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-16063607

One Jan 5, 2012 The US announce a new military re-organization plan - Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey said -“All of the trends, demographic trends, geopolitical trends, economic trends and military trends are shifting toward the Pacific. So our strategic challenges in the future will largely emanate out of the Pacific region"
http://articles.boston.com/2012-01-06/news/30598597_1_asia-pacific-defense-secretary-leon-panetta-defense-strategy

Two days later, China just warned us about our newly announced military strategy
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/07/world/asia/chinese-news-agency-xinhua-warns-us-against-militarism.html?_r=1&ref=china

In summation - What the China led economic coalition is doing to the US  is the exact same policy the US is doing to Iran through economics.

These are all the by products of the on going major power shift from the West to the East.

This is the current Japanese view & assessment on the power shift

Who cares how or from whom they get it. They have said they will use it to destroy Israel, or try to. Creating as you well know a regional and worldwide crisis. I fully expect them to acquire a bomb rather than build one. Whether it's China, Russia or Pakistan or N. Korea. It will still go boom. But again, I don't see any difference in the threat. If they get it, we (the world) better look out. Even an unsuccessful attempt to deliver a nuke to Israel will not have isolated consequences. And please stop accusing me of fear mongering. I don't accuse you of stupid mongering.

No accusation, just stating fact. It's what you're doing. You know all the evidence and yet you continue. The People are not stupid, this issue is what killed Michelle Bachmann's campaign when she over-played the fear card. the very next day she took a nose-dive that she could not recover from.

Should Christians vote for the lesser of two evils?  ::frown::

 the ridiculous political game of voting for any yahoo just to get out the previous president, is an old strategy that fails, and this type of voting is what gave us this corrupt socialists, one world order we now call the US government.

It is Ron Paul, or time to stop partaking in the politics of of this evil world, the UN, the Arab spring, are leading toward the end of the world, to a one world government.

I believe this is the direction the Holy Spirit is leading me, you all must pray and find out for yourselves. ::tippinghat::

Tonka you haven't refuted anything. Iran getting a bomb from China or Russia doesn't mitigate the situation. It is the same situation only an express version. Facing real threats is not fear mongering, it is reality mongering. Or the opposite is stupid mongering.
