Ryan is a good man, but does not redeem the abortionist/homosexualist statist Romney
Aug 11, 2012 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 08/11/2012 4:42:48 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Except for his unfortunate go along to get along support of TARP, bailouts, stimulus spending and the increased credit limit, etc, Ryan is a pretty good choice. Probably the best choice of the RINOS that were on Romney's short list. I support Ryan for the vice presidency. Wish he were at the top of the ticket, though.

But I still cannot and will not support the grand father of ObamaCare. Romney still loves and brags about his bastard brainchild, RomneyCare, even today when he knows what an anti-liberty socialist POS it is.

And the fact that he advocated that abortion should be safe and legal in America for over three decades of his adult lifetime and even advocated that Roe v Wade should be supported and sustained as settled law precludes any consideration whatsoever by this pro-life Christian for Myth Romney for the presidency.

And the fact that he boasted that he would be better for "gay rights" than Ted Kennedy, and proved it just increases my resistance.

That, and his penchant for gun control, his continuing support for global warming, gays in the scouts, gays in the military, and his record of appointing liberal judges makes it all but impossible for me to support him.

Lastly, we're having a bit of changeover on our moderator staff. At least two moderators resigned this afternoon after I flatly refused to rein in a so-called anti-Mormon "bigot" on FR. Well, if being in opposition to false prophets and false prophecy makes a Christian believer a bigot, then I guess I'm a bigot. I've posted before that I flat do not believe that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. Nor do I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. The Christian bible warns us to be weary of false prophets and that I am. Romney being the presumptive Republican nominee does not change that fact.

pissant and a few others

Dude... nobody, but NOBODY, was as vile an anti-Palin troll as pissant.

Seriously. I had to cobble up extra pics just for him, and him alone.

... well. You get the idea. ;)

In 6 months’ time, probably half of the ABOs posting on this thread will be there as well.

And in six months time they will still be obsessing about Jim and FR....they preach a LOT about being "more tolerant than FR", however they don't really allow any "stepping out of line" such as criticism of mormonism. Talk about a virtual "stoning".

I spent a couple of days there and couldn't take it... It was really like peering into a snake pit and it was kinda like going back in time to Junior High school. I had to look in my closet for saddle shoes and a broomstick skirt, to see if there wuz any chance of gettin' in with the popular kids....;0)

What I disliked the most is there is a large number of FReepers who are still posting here, but bashing FR and especially JR there daily. FR has its faults, but there isn't one little clique running things. Too big, and too diverse and even though there is a handful trying to wrest control from Jim and run things by the use of censorship, (we've seen this for several years) they aren't succeeding.

Anyway, I'd as soon see the malcontents just move along and take their vitriol with them.

Great thing on the models. Hope you have fun.

It has been a good thing for me in helping with the rehab from cancer and the resulting disabilities...and it has been a GREAT thing in terms of interacting with my grandsons and teaching them the skill and imparting them good lessons about patience, working with their hands, following detailed technical instructions, and having a sense of achievement and pride in their work.

The good Lord works in our lives in His ways...not our own...and every condition can be turned for the good if we place our faith in Him and His Son.

Here’s my site tracking the model work I am doing:

The chances are zero, there are already about 50 “third parties”, Alan Keyes ran in two of them PLUS the GOP in 2008.

The pre civil war origins of the republican party does not reflect anything useful for today when parties measure their age by centuries and we have total democracy with everyone over 18 voting and 54% of voters being female.

The republicans simply replaced the Whigs, even 2 years after they first met, John Fremont came in second in the 1856 presidential race, the “know Nothings” “third party” came in a distant third with 8 electoral votes.
The Whigs were pre civil war America, the party only lasted 22 years itself (1833 to 1856). The Republicans held their first convention on July 6, 1854 and four months later held 19% of the Congress and 25% of the Senate, six years later they held the majority in the Congress, the majority in the Senate, and they had the Presidency. The Republicans were never really a third party at all.

Here is an article by the historian (among other things) Michael Medved that I think you will find useful.

Gee..sounds just like the 52,000 mormon missionaries..."study this book of mormon, it's the true word of God about the "one, true living church on the face of the earth".

Is THAT why you are such a defender?

I guess I missed the whole pissant/Palin thing. On, absolutely, frothing-mad obsessed with Sarah Palin; and with degrading her, hourly, by any/all means imaginable.

He posted obscene, sexually graphic comments about Sarah, herself. He posted obscene, sexually graphic comments about Bristol Palin. He posted some truly execrable filth about Trig Palin, which doesn't even bear vague description, really.

Watching him finally get ZOTted was like being there live, in Munchkinland, the day Dorothy's house finally pulped the Wicked Witch of the West. ;)

Believing Christians will always admonish their Jewish brothers and sisters to seek the fulfilment of their covenant in Messiah Jesus. It is the Great Commission, the last task the resurrected Jesus assigned to us before he returned to the Father. We don’t mean to offend, but this is something we can’t not do. It’s part of being Christian, and its something that really shouldn’t surprise you when you cavort among us. Just sayin ...

The chances are zero,
***I didn’t post anything about chances. You need to read up on how God works with very little resources. Read Gideon — he had 10,000 men to take on an army of 300,000 and God told him he still had too many, knock it down to 300 so that everyone knew God did it.

The pre civil war origins of the republican party does not reflect anything useful for today
***Hogwash. The fiscon Whigs threw the socons under the bus, and the republicans started their own meek little party under such circumstances. How many Whigs are there today?

“Have you informed Jim Robinson about your opinion of FR? Here, I’ll do it for you.”


No he won’t. Doesn’t have to guts. Tried suicide by cop a couple of times. Can’t seem to get zotted. So I’ll try again.

It is freakin ridiculous how about 20 people on FR kiss Jim’s butt, about how he is the owner, and his opinion trumps everyone elses.

What a crock!

Jim started FR and is allowing it to morph into a hate site. Too bad.

Who was that loser from Little Green Footballs that let his site be destroyed? Well, look in the mirror. That could be the future of FR.

The treatment of people like Jeff Head by Jimmy’s inner sanctum on this thread is disgusting. Disgusting.

Only the perfect??? Nixon (twice) was hardly perfect. Ford, ditto. Bush the Elder (twice), ditto. Dole, ditto. Bush the Younger (twice), ditto, although he was better than anyone other than Reagan. McCain, another spineless idiot, megadittoes. I really haven't been overly choosy in the past. Romney rips it and I will never again vote for a murderous moral barbarian as a GOP POTUS nominee as I did when voting for Ford. If the GOP wants my vote in the future, it will have to earn it the old-fashioned way by nominating candidates who are not simply yearning to satisfy their greed at the expense of the babies and marriage and American sovereignty and Western Civilization. I have absolutely had it with the worthless, spineless GOP elitists who are every bit as much enemies of the American [eop;e and our way of life as any Demonrat.

None of the foregoing subjected the Roman Catholic Church (and by necessary implication each and every other pro-life church) to specific persecution as have BOTH Mittler and Obozo through their respective "health insurance" schemes. Romney's is worse on the persecution question. Mittler required the Roman Catholic Church to provide abortion coverage and sex change surgical coverage and other abominations in policies covering 90-year old nursing home confined, Alzheimer's suffering nuns and priests and Obozo did not. Small difference: minimal advantage to Obozo not that I would be caught alive or dead voting for either of them.

Mittler supports "gay" everything just like Obozo. Both are competing for fudgepackers' best supporter. Nothing to choose there.

Mittler supports turning innocent children over to lavender queens as though they were qualified to be adoptive substitute "parents." So does Obozo.

BOTH Obozo and Mittler are gun grabbers. Both are cpmmotted to farming ordinary folks on taxes to subsidize their megawealthy pals and supporters. Both favor what amounts to a certain path to socialized medicine. Both yearn for cap 'n' trade. Etc., Etc., Etc., ad infinitum, ad nauseam.

BTW, I was talking about latae sententiae excommunication and not damnation. With all due respect, you are no more qualified to instruct me as to what "other serious Catholics say" than I am to instruct you as to what serious Reformed theologians may say or as to what they may think the Bible says. I avoid discussions in which I am called upon to aggravate my fellow FReepers over their respective religious commitments and beliefs. I thank them to return the favor. What suffices for me is that FReepers be people committed consistently to the principles which characterize FR's mission as to matters political. That is not a matter of handicapping political races between utterly acceptable baby-murderers, faggot coddlers, gun grabbers, tax hikers, Demonrats of the open or disguised variety such as this year's two major party nominees, chronically hysterical environmental whackos, etc. It is not a matter of obsessing on which of two utterly unacceptable SOBs nominated by the major parties may be an infinitesimal smidgeon better on this issue or that when BOTH have absolutely unacceptable positions on each and every issue that really matters (i.e not $$$ issues).

You can keep on responding as though there were any possibility whatsoever that I would wind up agreeing with your support of Mittler. There is and will be no such possibility. Mittler = Obozo = Beelzebub = Obozo = Mittler = Baal = Mittler = Obozo = Moloch = Obozo = Mittler. That is and will continue to be my position. I will vote for Tom Hoefling. I do not owe my vote to either Obozo or Mittler and neither will get it. I do not owe my POTUS vote to the GOP as currently constituted and the GOP will not get it. I owe absolutely nothing to the Romney pom pom girls who think I owe them my vote for their candidate. I don't and won't. I also don't claim to speak for God especially not in support of Mittler.

My vote is not a "secular nod." I don't check my Faith at the door of the voting place. However imperfectly, it follows me and is part of me wherever I go.

I missed it, too.

I saw Pissant giving Palin followers a rough ride a couple of times, but I didn’t see the denouement.

Unfortunate. He was the staunchest supporter of Duncan Hunter. I felt he was on target when he gave the Fredheads tizzies by saying Fred didn’t have the “fire in the belly”.

But sometimes we go off the deep end, what can I say?

There are about 52 third parties, and a lot of them are conservative.

I think the electorate of today makes a huge difference compared with the electorate of 1856, when it comes to making sudden, bold, radical changes.

I also think that it makes a difference that there were only young parties, even the oldest party, the democrat party, was only about 30 years old at the time the republicans took the Presidency.

Well, there’s lots of accusations of hate, I’ll give you that, but it’s mostly RINOs or CINOs expressing their hatred for us “purists.”

“Hate” is a word (actually a political tool) invented and used by the evil side to encourage their followers to persecute the undesirables.

The adulation of Jeff and "butt kissing" from his "inner sanctum" is your business, but don't expect it from every FReeper.

Eerily reminiscent of the 1830s.

Praise to the man who communed with Jehovah!
Jesus annointed that Prophet and Seer.
Blessed to open the last dispensation,
Kings shall extol him, and nations revere.

Great is his glory and endless his priesthood.
Ever and ever the keys he will hold.
Faithful and true he will enter his kingdom,
Crowned in the midst of the prophets of old.

I want to conquer a vast, institutional party. I think Palin and a lot of tea party voters and some of our politicians do too.

As far as Romney goes, I won’t be voting for him, but I do expect that there will be a conservative plan to maximize our protest vote in some way that sends a unified message, I don’t mind waiting for the tea party, and/or JR’s ideas.

Medved probably likes things the way they are, with Romney, but his article is still informational.

Psssst! With all this judgmental bickering and all going on, has anyone told 'em that the the only ones going to heaven anyway is the Class of '98? Maybe we shouldn't tell them. :)

If you are going to use the Bible to back up your claims, at least use the WHOLE Bible, and not just the part you think supports your contentions:

And then you pull out a line of Scripture rather than FINISH the one I posted. Was that because you realized that taking all 5 verses of Scripture within the context of my original post doesn't support your own hypocrisy? Matthew 7:

1  Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Mk. 4.24
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Duncan Hunter wasn’t a serious candidate, he was retiring and wanted the publicity to keep his 28 year congressional seat in the family, his son, Duncan Hunter naturally won, beating the Navy SEAL that might have been a threat, and Duncan senior has not been heard from since.

I live in their district and always vote Hunter.

Pissant creepily worshiped Duncan Hunter as a sort of father figure or something, and did not understand that he was a good congressman, but he was never going to be a Governor, or a Senator, or a President, and especially not the year that he was retiring from politics for good, and not looking to start another career.

You are a very kind person, but I do not need the apologies of anyone on this site.

For them to have truly hurt me, I would have to have some degree of sentiment invested in them and I assure you, there is none.

I told the story of my father to simply explain how I came to believe the things I do. I was taught.

I won’t share too many details about my past here, mainly because of the group of folks who seem obsessed with picking apart everything or everyone they disagree with. My mother escaped with me and my siblings to the United States where we lived with family and for years, did not know my father’s fate.

Raised to believe the United States was where we would be safe, I believe it to this day.

Don’t take their attacks on me or Jews too personally. They are limited by their lack of education, narrow-mindedness and hatred, whether they realize it or not.

Thank you again.

I get my hackles up over injustice and cruelty. That's why I defended you. It's good to know you are tough enough to take care of that yourself. I imagine that's why your father survived.

The number of good people here far exceeds the number of mean ones. I'm essentially a sensitive individual and perhaps too idealistic for this world. I'll finish this post with a couple of my favorite quotes:

"Write injuries in sand, kindnesses in marble." [French Proverb]

"Great leaders are those who inspire greatness in others." [Anonymous, possibly Confucius paraphrased]

"In spite of everything, I still believe that people are good at heart." [Anne Frank]

"Let it roll off your back like water off a duck." [My Father]

Actually, it’s called discernment. When you post ugliness, hatred, vitriol, and worse, you don’t deserve to think of yourselves as even worthy of being an apprentice of either Paul or Peter.

Your behavior more exemplifies the father of lies.

Why do so many here fail to obey the Word?

Because you refuse to follow Christ's teaching.

Matthew 7:

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Romans 2

1 You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things.
2 Now we know that God’s judgment against those who do such things is based on truth.
3 So when you, a mere human being, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God’s judgment?
4 Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?

Me too...

The first time I visited Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, was 1988...

before that I was too poor to go...

I saved for years to visit “the Bible land”...

Always for me it was “next year, Jerusalem”...
