Since the first of the primary season and before, there has been an obvious rift on this board and nation wide splitting Constitutional conservatives and the establishment, liberal Republican Party. It was seen in the primaries in the choice of a Republican nominee, and quite heavily debated on this board. Personally, I have gone from despising Romney to voting for him with great regret. The debate still goes on, and I can fully understand the sentiments. It is a total impossible situation to justify either way. Romney's belief about Christ, plus his record on abortion, gun control, and gay rights while governor of MA is horrible. The factor that changed my mind is the disorganization and disinterest of the third parties in really winning. Another factor is the fact that this is a secular office, so it comes down to his record in MA. I look at it this way. There is a chance Romney has changed his attitude on aboriton, gay rights and gun control. There is no chance Obama will change his mind. Also, Romney could do no worse on the economy. It comes down to this is all we have. The question is, do you think the rift on the right will win out in Obama's favor, or do you think the horrible unemployment numbers will win out in Romney's favor?
