Fleeting fundamental issue??!!! The economy??!!!!

4 more years of Obama may very well turn this country into something you and I may never be able to reverse. I’m not going to settle for that.

“we have a better chance getting an Alito or Roberts with Romney”

Have you looked at his judicial picks as Governor? My understanding was that he picked extreme left-wing liberals.

If he runs on a BIG idea like socialism vs. capitalism, that will work. I’m talking about this “turn the economy around” rhetoric based on unemployment figures or pocketbook/kitchen table economics. Bottom line, though, you can’t make your message all about economics or you’ll never be able to beat a Democrat if and when the economy is doing good, as we saw with Clinton. You’ll also never be able to save yourself if the economy’s going through a rough patch, as we saw with Bush, Sr. Leftism/progressivism is so embraces and well-defined by the Democrats now, that a debate over those BIG ideas should be what we’re running our elections on. And that entails social policy as well as economic policy.

Listen, you must vote for Mr. Romney. I know, he’s not Mr. Reagan, but no one is. But Mitt is one heckuva lot better than the current occupant of The White House.

I can't zot anyone. The owner, Jim Robinson, has made it clear this is a conservative forum believing in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness with the least amount of government intrusion. Romney does not meet those standards so Jim will not allow Romney lovers to promote him on this forum.

Your disagreement is not with me, but with Jim. Direct your argument to him.

The game is RIGGED.

The presidency is to a degree, but the rest of it is bullsh*t. Go get enough people to get the right people elected in the primary. The game is voting numbers. The rest is periphery. It takes work. The problem is too many people, including most on message boards, are lazy and do nothing but bitch.

Door knocks, parade volunteers, stuffing envelops, phone calls. That's what it takes to win. I don't do the calls, but I do the other things. That strategy can go for both party leadership as well as our elected officials.

Romney sucks, but not everyone downballot sucks, and I'm not going to abandon them to the wolves because people are in a bitchfest over the likely presidential nominee.

It is ok that you are not impressed and I really don't need to be considered a rebel by anyone. My message to the GOP was simple,I am leaving the party and if they want my vote in Nov, they sure as heck better earn it. Now I could have left my house and did whatever real rebels do, and just showed up in Nov and voted for Mitt like a good little Republican, but I really didn't like that idea. Have a nice evening, lol.

“Seriously”, I can do that for you. Send me an email when you die, and I’ll type that on really good paper and scotchtape it to your head stone.

Where do you live, what state? Have you caught any zombies or killed any to date? Be careful, whatever disease they have is what made them that way - don’t catch it or we’ll have to kill you and that would be a shame.

I have heard Democrats carry a strain of that disease - at the moment it’s eating their brains but one can’t tell it because they act that way, sick or not.

LOL ! !

Your offer is just too kind Marcella, but I won't hold ya to it cuz gas'll be $18/gal by then and it'd cost you about $3K to make the trip from TX to PA and back.

I've chased off a few so far, but haven't buried any .. yet.
Tho if/when that becomes a necessity, there's about 2,000 acres of cornfield on the north side of my back fence.
Will just wrap a chain around a couple at a time and use the trusty old Deere to drag 'em up to the next patch of woods.
The crows will have 'em picked clean in no time.

Seriously tho, SHTF and a lotta lives will be comin' to an end sans formalities like eulogies.
Hell, your kind offer re zombie tally notwithstanding, nobody'd likely believe any flowery stuff about me anyway ;-)

If I were younger, I'd prolly already be back in TX, but age/family will likely keep me rooted here for the duration.
Old guys like me'll just have to fight a holding action to give y'all down there time to set up USA2.

So with that, Mr.Optimism bids y'all g'night !

It’s interesting insight that this is what is tossed at conservatives who will not vote for Mitt. Says a lot about the mentality of those people, IMO. “Temper Tantrum”. Is that what they really think? Really? Losing it over nothing?

Temper tantrum sounds about right to me.

I guess it is true that for them, Mitt really can’t do anything wrong, they will vote for him no matter what. I bet Mitt could praise Obama (he did - “he’s a nice guy”) and still they’d vote for him. All I know is Obama’s core believes the same thing about him.I don't know where you get this nonsense. A lot of us are not saying Mitt can't do anything wrong but are saying the choice between Obama and Romney is pretty stark.

That you can't see that is not a surprise to me as you seem to belong to the crowd that doesn't think Romney can do anything right and are willing to keep perhaps the worst president every in office while you throw your temper tantrum.

But I know I can't change you so help yourself but your lame justification just doesn't fly.

If you want to vote for Mitt, feel free. I will not be. No tantrum. Just stating an intention.

I am not voting for Obama because I don’t believe in what he stands for. I am not voting for Mitt because I don’t trust him, and I don’t like what he’s done as a governor. In both cases it is the candidates’ fault I am not voting for them.

And please, Mitt is not there with conservatives 80% of the time. He’s the most liberal of all the candidates that were running.

“You are one tough Texan that shouldn’t be messed with.”

That is the truth. It’s a matter of mind set and mental practice. If one thinks through every situation that could happen, and uses the weapon mentally in every situation, then when a real situation happens, it’s not new because one has thought it through before.

Knowing stance and basic shooting protocol with the weapon is fine, but thinking through situations over and over allows freedom of action in the real situation.

Hesitation is not permitted. I see situations psychologically and I mentally practice so I won’t hesitate.

Well, this is off topic for this thread.
