Thats very true. One thing that p****s me off is this constant talk or Romney being not a true conservative. I think it's much more likely that he moderated his views in order to be elected Governor of the most liberal state in America.

That's the consequence of running to the left of Teddy Kennedy. At least with Obama you know what you're going to get. Romney's just bought Kerry's old waffle hut that was up for sale, being against Romneycare before he was for it.

If these people are truly conservative, they must realize that Obama can't be re-elected.
If these people are truly smart, they must realize that the only two candidates with a shot at winning are Romney and Obama.

If these people are honest, they must realize that they should vote for Romney.

What exactly do I have in common with Mitt Romney? I'm not wealthy, I'm not mormon, I've never even been to MA or MI. I'm prolife, he supports abortion. I support traditional marriage, and he supports gay marriage.

He's for increasing government spending, I cannot think of a single issue where I agree with Mitt Romney.

So that makes the score 0-0 between Romney/Obama.

I'm supporting Virgil Goode - as a Kantian - my duty is to act how I would want others to act such as if it were universalized, would result in the best outcome.

Believe me, you are quite far from being a "Kantian".

Rep., R-VA, Constitution Party candidate, bit of a nut.

In a close election he could be the right-wing answer to Ralph Nader of 2000.

Pretty much, especially if Virginia is 2012's Florida.

Well, I'm an objectivist, a deontologist and an empiricist, so Kant is rather close to me. Most folks here are subjectivists of various stripes.

I consider myself a kantian, too. It's funny to see such a rightwinger being a kantian just like me, a leftist "hack". By the way, I don't like "nietzscheans".

Well, I don't see his theory as particularly influential wrt political ideology. He doesn't teach you what you should believe, only how to think.
