Maybe Romney can't beat obama, but I'd lay odds that he has a lot better shot than Paul. Just listen to the people and Paul doesn't have the support, it isn't out there. Don't kid yourself

Let's face it, Ron Paul will only be a spoiler in the election. He doesn't stand an ice cube's chance in Hades of winning as a third party, and Romney will be the Republican nominee. You have two choices, Obama or Romney. Obama has already proven that his leadership is lousy. Romney can only be an improvement on the existing situation. Please don't let your loyalty for Ron Paul overshadow logical thinking. A vote for Ron Paul will turn into a vote for Obama.

How about this soapweed.When you have 2 bad choices maybe you should stay with the devil you know.We know Obamas dirt and his tricks.Much easier to keep track of than a whole new set of tricks and dirty deals.I do understand your point but I'm not going to give up until I'm forced.Our leaders may not may not believe in the REpublic but I do.

Stay with the devil you know????? Who knew what all Obama would come
up with to date? He has no respect for any authority or US court or anything
to do with America. No Respect. He's proven that over and over, and yet you
say "stick with the devil you know". I refuse to do that. Romney is an American
who loves America and has made his own way here. He understands things
that Obama has no clue about. I say you are too afraid of Romney to be
realistic. Voting for Paul will keep Obama in as president for another 4 years.
DISASTER!!!

The thing is we do not know what obama will do.
He has been bound by the re election so his actions are toned down.
By all of his indicators if he gets back in we haven't seen anything yet.

Go ahead and vote for obama and then explain to your kids and grandkids you had the opportunity to stop obama from enslaving your kids and grandkids.
The writing is on the wall, is your pride going to enslave your kids and grandkids.

Paul has made it clear he will not abide by the Constitution.

I will choose the BEST candidate, as there is no perfect candidate

FGS smalltime stick with the devil you know :shock: Tell us just how FLEXIBLE will Obama get with Russia and the Muslim Brotherhood if he is re-elected? The only thing we know for sure about Obama is he surrounds himself with the most radical Leftwingnuts in the country and the only thing that has curbed his movement in their direction has been his want to be RE-ELECTED. Once that threat is behind him you can lay odds that he will be moving as fast and furious in the next four years to CHANGE the US into something that will not resemble the US you now know.

If you want to live in a Nanny Socialist State just split the NOT OBAMA vote and vote for a person that has not a friggin chance of getting elected. I have never figured out why anyone thinks Ron Paul is electable when his support within his own party is so low. Face it if he runs as a third party candidate and gives Obama a second term by spliting the vote his son can kiss his standing in the Republican party good bye. It is time Ron steps aside if he cares at all about his son's political future. :roll:

Russians may be white.. but allies.. seems to me they are for who ever is against US...

I may be ready to defend our republic,.. but it will be a bit difficult if the president is an isolationist and is actually defending Iran's right to have nuclear weapons..

This absolutely does not make sense. So now we are going to base our loyalties and allies on skin color?

Uhhhh you do realize that Russia has been one of the biggest supporters of communism in modern history, correct? Communism is not the same as a Republic and quite the opposite. You should research a little about the support your natural allies have provided for the Muslim menace's.

Geez with allies like Russia who needs enemies? :roll:

Did you forget that everytime Russia is asked to support sanctions against places like Iran, Syria or North Korea they say no. Want to guess why smalltime.

From 2006
Last year, Russia surpassed the United States as the developing world’s leader in arms deals, according to a new report by the Congressional Research Service (CRS). But Russia has increased military shipments to anti-U.S. states like Iran and Venezuela, not to mention potential adversaries like China, which concerns U.S. policymakers far more. Experts say Iran—as well as Syria—may have transferred some of these small arms to groups like Hezbollah and Hamas. Also, Russia’s arms relationship with Iran, the thinking goes, further complicates efforts to impose punitive sanctions against Tehran for its alleged pursuit of nuclear weapons.
have they stopped selling weapons to this same people NO

Tensions in the arms sales relationship between Russia and China have been visibly on the rise in recent years. Yet, in November 2010, Moscow and Beijing announced a large new package of arms sales that appear to have turned a new leaf in this relationship.

"China and Russia are selling arms to the government of Sudan in the full knowledge that many of them are likely to end up being used to commit human rights violations in Darfur," said Brian Wood, an expert on military and policing for Amnesty International.

On Tuesday, it was reported that a shipment of Russian weapons was scheduled to arrive in Syria by the weekend. Presumably, the arms will be put in the hands of President Bashar al-Assad, whose 14 month-long crackdown against an anti-government movement has resulted in more than 9,000 civilians deaths

Thirty-five tons of North Korean weapons, including missiles, rocket-propelled grenades and explosives, have been seized from a Russian transporter plane that stopped to refuel in Bangkok during an apparent arms run to Asia.

The huge cache, uncovered by Thai authorities on a tip-off from the US, was allegedly being shipped illegally to ''a south Asian country'' to help North Korea beat United Nations sanctions on arms trading.


They may be white But Like I said with allies like Russia who needs enemies. :roll:

Remember back when Russia and China were totally communist and they couldnt even feed thier own people.We used to sell them food. Now they sell food and instead of us selling guns and ammo they have taken the lead.Remember we armed the peple we are now fighting.Why did we oppose the Russians when they went to Afghanistan?The only place communism is on the rise is here in the good ole USA.Why is it ok for the USA to invade countries and kill terrorists that threaten our security but its not ok for Russia and China?If you think skin color doesnt matter turn on the news.

you might want to read abit about Chechnya

as for the rest it is wrong to arm rogue nations,.. and in my view wrong to arm nations that are not stable or have a near history of instability..
and both russia, and china have long sold arms to rogue nations.. and defended rogue nations.. this isn't something new..

I have long complained about our re-arming both Iraq and Afghanistan..

as for Afghanistan,.. in hindsight we should have stayed out,.. but then all the Russian breakaway counties would still be under Russian oppression and control

no matter how many wrongs you pile on, it is still wrong..

Geez smalltime with your point of view I'm guessing Blacks don't kill blacks Latinos don't kill latinos either :roll: .

A 2007 special report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, reveals that approximately 8,000 — and, in certain years, as many as 9,000 African Americans are murdered annually in the United States. This chilling figure is accompanied by another equally sobering fact, that 93% of these murders are in fact perpetrated by other blacks. The analysis, supported by FBI records, finds that in 2005 alone, for example, African Americans accounted for 49% of all homicide victims in the US — again, almost exclusively at the hands of other African Americans.

All you have to do is look around the world to see people of every color kill those of their own color ALL THE TIME. Russia is not considered an ally of the US and never has been just because they have the same skin color. :roll:

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is stepping up rhetoric against the U.S. as his campaign for the March 4 presidential election intensifies after the biggest protests against his rule.

The U.S. “wants to control everything” and takes decisions unilaterally on key questions, Putin said on a campaign stop yesterday in the Siberian city of Tomsk, 3,100 kilometers (1,900 miles) east of Moscow. “Sometimes I get the impression the U.S. doesn’t need allies, it needs vassals.”
.
Putin, 59, is seeking a new term in the Kremlin amid the biggest challenge to his 12-year rule after fraud allegations at parliamentary polls sparked mass protests. The Russian leader, who has repeatedly accused the U.S. of interfering in other countries’ affairs, said last week that reports by a state-owned Moscow radio station supported American interests.

“The No. 1 reason Putin is doing this is elections,'' Jan Techau, director of the European Center of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Brussels, said yesterday in a phone interview. ‘‘It’s pre-election saber-rattling. This is vintage Putin.’’

Putin’s remarks added to anti-American rhetoric after a senior member of his ruling United Russia party said Jan. 24 that new U.S. ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, is trying to fuel revolution by meeting with opposition leaders.

‘Reset’ in Relations

Efforts to improve relations with the U.S. under the so- called ‘‘reset’’ policy of President Barack Obama were spearheaded by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, who agreed in September to make way for Putin’s return in March 4 elections.

Medvedev yesterday, while forecasting the disagreement between Russia and the U.S. over American plans to station missile-defense facilities in Europe would continue to bedevil relations and would get much worse from 2018 to 2020.

‘‘Medvedev’s departure is significant to the extent that Putin has a specific attitude to American leaders: he doesn’t trust them,” Fyodor Lukyanov, an analyst at the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy in Moscow, said yesterday by phone. “The atmosphere will be less constructive.”

U.S.-Russia relations suffered a setback last year when the two nations disagreed over the NATO military campaign that led to the overthrow of Libya’s Muammar Qaddafi and U.S.-led attempts to censure Syria at the United Nations for its crackdown on anti-government unrest, which Russia says is part of another attempt at regime change.

Jackson-Vanik

While the U.S. administration has pledged to repeal the Jackson-Vanik amendment, a Cold War-era law that barred favorable trade relations with the communist Soviet Union, American lawmakers have questioned annulling the measure and easing trade with Russia.

The Obama administration aims to repeal the legislation this spring, McFaul said on the radio station Ekho Moskvy yesterday.

Keeping the amendment in force risks making U.S. companies unable to take advantage of Russia’s pending entry into the World Trade Organization and deprive the country of a potential doubling of exports to Russia, according to a November report from the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington.

Trade between the two countries rose 35 percent in 2010 to $31.7 billion, according to the State Department.

Russia’s economy grew 4.2 percent in 2011, faster than the previous year’s 4 percent expansion, Putin said Jan. 12. The 30- stock Micex Index rose 0.7 percent to 1,498.79 yesterday, its biggest daily advance since Jan. 17. The ruble surged to its strongest level in more than two months, closing 0.5 percent higher at 30.72 per dollar.

Missile Defense

The U.S. and its allies say the missile-defense system is meant to protect against threats from outside Europe, such as Iran. Russia says the shield will blunt its nuclear capability and wants the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the U.S. to sign a binding treaty stating the system is not aimed at their defenses, something the Obama administration has refused to do.

Missile defense is “linked to the U.S. desire to strengthen its position as the leader of the Western world,” Putin said. “That’s why they don’t want to cooperate on an equal basis, either with the Europeans or us.”

McFaul, who hosted Russian opposition activists at the U.S. embassy last week, said Obama sent him to Russia to pursue the “reset” policy, rejecting as “nonsense” the accusations that he’s trying to interfere in Russian domestic politics.

Not the Point

“The point of the reset isn’t to prepare a revolution,” McFaul said in an interview with the Kommersant newspaper published yesterday.

Russian opposition groups, who accuse Putin’s party of inflating its vote in December’s parliamentary elections to about 50 percent from 30 percent, plan their next major protest on Feb. 4, a month before the presidential vote.

McFaul, a former professor at Stanford University who was the top White House adviser on Russian affairs before taking up his current post, was pilloried last week on Russian state television as aiming to export revolution.

“We want to understand if we are dealing with a new concept of an ambassador’s role,” said Alexei Pushkov, head of the Russian lower house of parliament’s foreign affairs committee. “Is he an ambassador to the Russian Federation or in part head of a non-commercial organisation promoting democracy?” Pushkov said by phone yesterday.

Twitter Messages

A non-career diplomat, McFaul has been using Twitter Inc. and Livejournal to get out his message, and posted links to the blog of opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

“There obviously is a risk: the Russians can be pretty rough on ambassadors they disapprove of, as I know,” said Tony Brenton, U.K. ambassador to Russia from 2004 to 2008, who was hounded by pro-Kremlin youth activists after attending an opposition conference.

“We and the U.S. have to be very careful,” Brenton said yesterday in a phone interview. “We can’t be backing the opposition because that would have counterproductive effects, but what we can legitimately do is insist that Russia observes its international commitments to run honest and fair elections, to allow freedom of the press and freedom of opposition.”

Putin, who was president from 2000-2008, before handing over to Medvedev for four years after serving the maximum two consecutive terms permitted by the constitution, needs to win more than half the vote for a first-round victory.

“The primary concern of the Russian elite is control of the political process,” said Techau. “Now they’re losing control of the political system and this kind of anti-U.S. reaction shows just how nervous the Russian elite has become.

There is sure alot of Anti American talk in this Bloomberg article about a skin color coded ally of the US smalltime. :?

BTW if Russia is a US ally as you claim why did the guy the spewed Anti American Rhedoric during they recent election WIN?
