Romney, Gingrich, Santorum and Paul–they run the gamut from A to Z. A for awful and Z for the Z in crazy for some of Ron Paul‘s ideas, not all, just some of them. These candidates are so bad that many Republicans are refusing to vote for them. It hasn’t reached that point yet, but I think that we are nearing the point where Barack could be re-elected with only GOP votes. And of course, he will receive the votes of most Democrats and many independents. The GOP establishment representing the 1% would deny Democrats and independents the right to vote if they could, and in many states, GOP governors and state legislators are doing precisely that under the guise of preventing vote fraud.
The GOP owes the country better choices. If they do not supply a viable candidate, then the voters can and must look elsewhere.
