Yes they think his religion is a cult but he has to kiss their butts anyway. I guess that's why he threw in the one man one woman thing. I'm Mitt and I only have ONE wife. Don't confuse me with that Cody annoying-as-hell Sister Wives guy.

Ron Paul to stop spending money on primaries

Ron Paul's ardent supporters are not likely to line up behind Romney.

I do think the Libertarian movement is making some inroads with younger voters.

Well the true supporters still believe he's going to win:

I don't think Mitt Romney even has a chance to be the GOP nominee. It's funny how blatant the Mainstream Media ignores the actual delegate count. I wonder what they will do when Ron Paul wins the GOP nomination on the first ballot at Tampa...Will they keep reporting that Romney won already?

I am hopeful...even with the amount of media bias against Ron Paul, he is still wracking up delegates. Here is the actual delegate count: The Real 2012 Delegate Count for the Republican Primaries & Caucuses

Sure by American standards.

What turned generational Democrats into Reagan Democrats?
What was the creation of the DNC in the 90's in response to?
What happened to Southern Democrats?
Where are the Catholic pro-life Democrats in national politics?
How many Blue Dog Democrats are left in the House? 20?
Who replaced Scoop Jackson as a Democratic Hawk? Joe Lieberman, oh wait he was primaried out of the party and is now an independent.
Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi... yes, the far-left is running the Democratic Party.

You mean the universal health care program that was deemed acceptable by Republicans in the early 1990s, or the series of bailouts started under the Bush Administration?

I think it's fair to say that there aren't really many right-wing Democrats left, although there are a lot of pro-life Democrats. But left-wing Republicans, like Lincoln Chafee and Jim Jeffords, are also gone. And I also don't think it's fair to say that the core of the Democratic party has shifted particularly far to the left in recent years.

Obama runs to the right of Reagan on many things.

A lot of people do these comparisons with politicians from different eras. It is kind of pointless.

The right/ left and conservative/ liberal are defined by the times they are in.

Some things yes, but to deny that their are universal definitions and to deny the fact that one's own extreme right or left placement will skew these things is ignoring the whole picture.

I get that America is 'conservative' (whatever that means), but you gotta ask yourself how far right the window can shift before you're talking real damage. If Obama is a socialist, you're in a world of trouble.

I love that Obama and Pelosi's names are evidence in and of themselves that the far left has taken over. That's great debate, right there with the word "ramifications."

It's funny how the one thing that unites left and right wing voters in Australia and New Zealand is that, every four years, a considerable majority of them cross their fingers and hope the Democrats win in the US.
