A Newsmax story today brings news that Ron Paul will no longer campaign in primaries, although he appears unlikely to endorse Mitt Romney. I salute him for having the good sense to understand that he'd be engaging in a destructive act of futility to continue and echo his call to pay attention to local elections.
There are many who find themselves cool towards Romney, as his stances towards social issues are rather lackluster in comparison with those of recent GOP candidates. Still, they are light-years better than those of Obama. In all fairness, the position of an earthworm on the social issues would be better than those of Obama; all the more reason to do what needs to be done to cause his defeat in the polls.
I've heard it asked "why vote for Obama-lite"? Why?
Because we don't want "Obama Regular". One, and only one, of Obama or Romney will
take the White House. It doesn't take a rocket

Romney - and yes, I'm speaking of spiritual damage as well. So let's lay aside - mortify- our feelings of
disgust (yes I said "our"; I share those feelings) and work to defeat
Obama. Anything else is akin to moral/political/spiritual
