Scavenging Is Not Salvaging

I said it just over a week ago: it'll be either Santorum or Romney.

My bet: if the Republicans nominate Romney, they lose to Obama in November. If they nominate Santorum, they win. Simple:
  1. Conservatives are very likely still the largest ideological group in the U.S. at >40%; if they stay home in apathy, the Republicans lose.
  2. The commies will all turn out for Obama, but the uncommitted will not.
  3. The so-called "moderates" will break for a clear alternative candidate due to Obama's record.
Romney doesn't have the necessary background to even understand the relevant questions, let alone answer them. Santorum, on the other hand does recognize the questions (though he doesn't give the answers I would).

If Obama is not to enjoy another four years of subversion and havoc, then, for all his faults, Santorum has to win the nomination; Ron Paul is both better and worse, but the aspects in which he is worse mean he cannot win.

    Not at all. I remove your comments because you have had more opportunites than I ever should have given you to do more than micturate all over my blog gratutiously. I remove your comments because they almost never address the subject of my posts. I remove your comments because you don't respond to argument. I remove your comments because you ignore the posts I made in reasoned response to your beloved Monbiot and Bruenig. I remove your comments because you swear at me every single time. I remove your posts because you call me a liar without any facts and won't put your name to the defamation. I remove your posts because you haven't got the balls to come down here and face me. In short, I remove your comments because you are a nasty little piece of shit and I'm just enforcing my right to control my own blog.



Comment moderation is now in place, as of April 2012. Rules:

1) Be aware that your right to say what you want is circumscribed by my right of ownership here.

2) Make your comments relevant to the post to which they are attached.

3) Be careful what you presume: always be prepared to evince your point with logic and/or facts.

4) Do not transgress Blogger's rules regarding content, i.e. do not express hatred for other people on account of their ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation or nationality.

5) Remember that only the best are prepared to concede, and only the worst are prepared to smear.
