6. Romney supports hyrdualic fracking. The only reason they are not fracking along the upper Delaware River is because the Obama Administration opposed drilling. (favor Obama).mnlumberjack wrote:For the outdoor experience, I guess I would favor Obama:
1. Romney supports coal, one look at the haze over GC will convince ya that coal's not the answer (favor Obama)
2. Renewable/clean energy. Sure we need gas to run our cars, but lets find an alternative (favor Obama).
3. Can't draw a picture in my mind of the Romney's out on the trails (Cadillac accessible trail heads?).
4. Someone who will continue to protect America's national parks. Parks don't generate a profit so I don't think Romney and Ryan would put them very high on the list.
5. Sure would be nice if someone would control the Mexican drug/human trafficking along the boarder. That's a really nice part of the country that we can't safely make use of (favor Romney).
Whoever you support, it's your responsibility to vote.
What better place to keep George Carlin quotes than in a Bible ;)"You may have noticed that there's one thing I don't complain about: Politicians. Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says, "They suck". But where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky. They don't pass through a membrane from another reality. No, they come from American homes, American families, American schools, American churches, American businesses, and they're elected by American voters. This is the best we can do, folks. It's what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out.
....I have solved this political dilemma in a very direct way: I don't vote. On Election Day, I stay home. I firmly believe that if you vote, you have no right to complain. Now, some people like to twist that around. They say, "If you don't vote, you have no right to complain", but where's the logic in that? If you vote, and you elect dishonest, incompetent politicians, and they get into office and screw everything up, you are responsible for what they have done. You voted them in. You caused the problem. You have no right to complain.
I, on the other hand, who did not vote -- who did not even leave the house on Election Day -- am in no way responsible for that these politicians have done and have every right to complain about the mess that you created."

Amen, hallelujah and pass the gunpowder, brother. (I have to admit that I disagree with George about voting, though. )Be the change you want to see in this world. Mahatma Gandhi.
