I’m with you. I like Ryan despite his imperfections.
With Romney you have to wade through his flaws to find his imperfections.
Yet, as I stated earlier, this is an awful pick. Ryan could never be more effective than where he is now. Romney takes a true conservative out of a position of power and sends him to foreign funerals for the next four years. Once again the conservatives get screwed!
The only other choice is taking our country down the path to Greece. If the Obama/Biden ticket wins I see $20 Trillion or more in the national debt. We may not have a country as we know it.
One step at a time.We all know what Romney stands for.We also know who Obama is.We’ll vote for Romney , can’t see doing nothing.
Have you checked out ‘12 POTUS candidate Tom Hoefling of America’s Party? IMHO, he’s much better than Virgil Goode, on most issues. Tom’s knowledge of the U.S. Constitution and all other important U.S. documents is second to none, and Tom is a terrific speaker, too.
I’m voting ABO/Ryan 2012.
A vote withheld from Romney only helps one person...
Make sure everybody gets this point.
Total agreement with you. I REALLY dislike Romney.
I understand your views, I wish that they had prevailed in the primaries. But, this country as we know it will cease to exist if Obama is reelected. You are helping the other team, although I know that is not your intent.
Conservatism can prevail, but only if we get rid of the Progressive/Communist cancer that infects the White House. Romney’s not a cancer, just a very bad case of the Tupelo Two Step, Montezuma’s revenge, the Race to the Throne. Keep your powder dry and stock up on TP.
No argument here and I agree 100%. The VP Office really means nothing except for a few days after the pick is announced.
I’m just hoping that this is setting up Ryan, or another Conservative, for 2016.
Rep. Ryan looks like the older brother of Brad Paisley, the country music performer.
I hope it wasn't any of the good moderators!
I thank them all for their efforts regardless.
And no, Ryan does not redeem Romney but he sure don't hurt.
Thank you. I guess the Apostle Paul must have been a "bigot", too, when he preached against false religions on Mars Hill. It's been unreal, seeing conservatives use such accusations.
Three cheers and tip of the hat for being a steadfast man of principle.
In Obama's America, being called a bigot, a racist and homophobe is a badge of honor. One of the numerous good things about Free Republic is its defense for traditional Christian values and its stand against political correctness. Likewise, this is one of the few places on the planet where being branded a McCarthyite is a compliment. Is is any wonder that FR remains, after all these years, the only authentic presence on the web for true Conservatives?
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.
God bless you for standing firm in support of hard, genuine conservative principles, Jim. You are an honest and undisputed patriot.
To all the huffily indignant and red-faced Mittbot concern trolls and online shills, regularly hopping up and down and screeching like hyper-amphetamined howler monkeys over the unimaginable prospect of committed movement conservatives actually daring NOT to pledge undying fealty to and worship of their anointed CINO du jour:
We are where we are in this great American experiment in God given individual liberty. It’s been under assault for over 70 years, but never to the extent Obama has taken us. As an American, and as a grandfather, I will do everything possible to defeat this dictatorship and elect Romney/Ryan.
God bless FR, and God bless America.
I’m against mormonism and dont particularly care for Romney. I am so Enthusiastic about Ryan.
But no matter what i think of Mitt, I despise Zero and will vote for any Republican nominee before I help Zero get another 4 years by sitting it out or voting for a third party nobody.
At the end, if this keeps up, everyone on here is going to call everyone else a RINO if we dont agree 100%.
