He did a couple of interviews later on (one was on The View, don't remember the other) where he admitted that he was not as convinced as he had been, and that he was conflicted as to whose freedoms were impacted more, the child's or the mother's. I really liked that. He really does just care about preserving as many freedoms as possible.
And I am unsure whether or not I will vote for Romney. I am considering Gary Johnson, who I know has no chance, but maybe seeing a few extra votes go his way will give libertarians more ammo in future campaigns. Sadly, it makes little difference either way, as I am registered in Texas, and I think we all know who will win that state. Still, if Romney and Obama were the *only* choices, I would vote Romney. I don't care for any of his policies, though he seems to favor internet privacy more than Obama, but my main reason is that Romney hasn't had the chance to fuck us over yet. Again, it isn't much, but I feel Obama abused his authority and my trust, so I will not vote for him on principle. It's kinda like when I get horrible customer service from an internet provider and I switch to the only other company in the area. I know it won't be better, but that company hasn't fucked me yet.
Also, regarding Romney, at least his lack of character in kinda right out in the open. It irritates me every time I see a post about how cool Obama is. At least we can all be disappointed in Romney together. Also, while I do not care for Ryan's budget, I liked the fact that he at least tried to put something together that cut spending while everyone else just bickered. In fact, I would take Biden over Obama and Ryan over Romney, kinda weird.
Still, Ron Paul is a damn fine man, and I can't fully explain how much it hurt to see him not make it. Completely unrelated, I know, but it's important to remember that there are honest representatives out there, and that our current campaign laws and processes seem designed to ensure that they are weeded out. I wasn't a huge McCain fan, either, but I think he had more character than Obama, and would feel less resentful of seeing McCain fans. At least he actually did something noteworthy to earn his support base.
