Voting as a Catholic is CONFUSING!

OK, I'm 30 years old and have never even registered to vote. I hate politics. Everything is hearsay and it's nearly impossible to differentiate the truth from lies. There are so many hidden hands swirling the waters beneath the surface layer. How does one even begin to understand how to vote with a clear conscience?

What is everyone's main quarrel with Obama OTHER than being pro-abortion? What does everyone actually like about Romney other than *being* pro-life?

Another election that I'm most likely not going to cast my vote.

Romney is pro-life?

News to me, too, eh? I thought he and Ryan both accepted the pro-death, pro-baby killer position of exceptions for rape &/or incest &/or life of the mother.

Romney is not against child murder in the case of rape or "life of the mother"
He is against partial birth and full birth abortions.

Obama supports every form of infant murder including partial and full birth infanticide.
He is also feckless.

Yeah, he claims to be. I believe this happened half way through the campaign.

From what I gathered, Romney is trying to appeal to all religious conservatives. However, he is also very much for the rich staying rich and the poor staying poor, unless they (the poor) somehow change their jobs into high paying careers. He is very much against healthcare for all, which would be provided for by employers (how it currently is) and social services (ie medicare). He also does not support healthcare coverage of pre-existing conditions.

Obama is very much anti-religion. Has a bit of a better view on healthcare but this view is still not 100% acceptable by myself, as it forces tax payers to cover elective procedures, such as abortion. His healthcare bill also forces everyone to have healthcare, whether they can afford it or not, and if they can not afford it, then they are fined (how much? I have no idea). He's still more supportive of the lower/middle class in terms of taxes and other benefits.

Both parties are liars. Both have hidden agendas that they try to keep away from the public.

If you vote for Romney, you will have the sick dying, the poor starving and the middle class struggling even more than they already are. The ecomony won't improve for the majority already struggling. He may or may not support pro-life down the road.

With Obama, abortion rates will surely rise. Homosexuals may be allowed to be married nation wide. People with cancer or other ailments will be able to purchase healthcare. The ecomony may or may not get better.

Such a dilemma.

Obama is a Marxist

Romney is a Socialist

The analogy that I use, is that they are both driving down the highway of Socialism. Obama is driving a Porsche going 180 miles an hour, whereas Romney is driving a Chevy going 60 miles an hour. The only difference is that with the Republicans we will take a little longer to become a fully Socialist State.

How is Romney a socialist? He doesn't seems to possess any of the socialist traits.

I don't and will not be voting. I find it repugnant in principle, being a monarchist.

My main objection to Obama is that he is the most aggressively, morally repugnant President we've possibly ever had. Abortion, gay "marriage," the contraception nonsense, homosexualization of the military, etc. etc. etc.

My main objection to Romney is that he's a terminally opinionless gray-faced organization man. As has been said, being a "conservative" (emphasis on the "con") he'll get us to the same destination, just perhaps slightly slower. And he's got a pretty strongly pro-abortion track record too.

This.

Read this article to understand why the morally superior option is not to vote under these circumstances: http://sspx.org/miscellaneous/catholic_p...voting.htm

Don't forget that both men support child abuse, otherwise known as homosexual adoption.
