Not giving up here either. It's disturbing that the focus isn't what's best for the country, but to simply get Obummer out. But we, as a country, are "ok" with replacing him with a flip-flopping liberal like Romney. Sickening reality

Here's my opinion, for what it's worth. I've been a life long republican. Voted for a repub every election since turning 18 (local and national). Now, I'm a conservative more than a repub, and the republican "Party" is not conservative anymore. I feel like Reagan, when he said that he didn't leave the dem party, they left him. (Now I'm just saying this so there's no mistaking me for a repub turned dem, bc I would never vote for anyone in that dispicable party). People tell me I would be wasting my vote if I didn't vote for Romney or if I wrote in a third party candidate. I look at it like this. Who is really wasting their vote if you are voting for a status quo candidate? I've been doing it my whole life and every year we're deeper and deeper in debt and govt getting bigger to the point of consuming our nation. So I think if you're voting for one of the party candidates, then you're wasting your vote! I'm not ruling out Romney, but he, so far is not the kind of a man that I want as our President. As far as Obama is concerned, he is a socialist, bordering on communist (has no business being a president of this once proud country).
On a lighter note, hey Casey, it's been a long time since chatting. How have you been? I'm actually starting to train a little and thinking about competing in Tn in June. I figured I might as well jump right into and see how far back I've regressed, lol. I hope you and the fam are doing well. If I'm gonna start competing again, you might as well get back in too! Ttyl
