Just because I support a candidate doesn't mean I support everything they believe.

You show a severe lack of intellect by assuming that I do.

I don't see much of a difference between the two to be honest. Someone could break it down if you like but I doubt you're going to two completely different worlds with one or the other as President.

Hell in fact i wold take Jessie the body over the 2 sell out puppets we have to vote for now.

I say 3rd parties should be allowed. But some would wold send their family death treats just like Ross Parow when he was ahead in votes.

The elections are rigged, just look at the little coverage Ron got, while Gary was completely isolated out of all the media.

They are different, and most importantly they'd operate in different contexts.

Romney, while more of a a moderate himself, would have to deal with the Republican base of angry white males. He would soon be perceived as untrustworthy, as he'll have been elected by people whose beliefs he doesn't really share.
He would also be surrounded by more Bush-style neocons.
Finally, lobbyists would regain influence, as would Wall Street.

I wouldn't say he'll get 270 electoral votes easily, but he does have much easier path to those 270 electoral votes than Romney.

None of the above, both parties are almost completely bought and controlled by corporate lobby groups. The only thing which is different is that certain economic sectors lean more towards Republicans while other prefer Democrats. It's almost like having an election between Walmart and McDonalds .
