FY: "I don't believe those memes, and I don't deserve a Romney/Ryan administration. But Mr. "Har Har" does. So do many of his fellow citizens. They deserve exactly what they profess to want."

You are right, of course. I can't say that I deserve Bush/Cheney etc. when I didn't even vote for them.

I have sunken back into the depths of political despair because *we* keep voting for people who seem to be hellbent on surrendering our autonomy to the banks and multinational corporations who have no respect for the middle class Americans who vote for the politicians owned by them.

I am an attorney who happens to own a small law firm. Why should I continue to argue against tax cuts that benefit me when I am arguing with brothers in law who are ardent anti-government conservatives, one of whom worked at Newport News shipyard and whose salary, benefits, pension and Social Security were all paid for by me, and the other who was a college professor whose salary, pension, benefits and Social Security were paid for by me.

If they are determined to vote for Romney who will cut my taxes and ultimately pay for it out of their retirement funds, Social Security and pensions, why in the fluck should I continue to argue with them?
