Any Vote That Isn't For Romney Is Effectively A Vote For Obama (pic)

I know Romney's not a hit with Freepers. Truth be told he was FAR from my first pick as well. BUT...

Hum?
An interesting point of view and possibly a really good point, if the Founding Fathers had not dedicated this new country to God and His glory, since they did, you don’t.

The question really is whether you think Romney does more long term damage to the US by gutting the GOP of conservatism and sending it further to the left, or if Zero can do more damage in the short term. I think the impending decimation of the conservative movement in one of the major parties is a bigger peril. That’s just my opinion. You are entitled to yours.

Remember Obama has been good for two things: gun sales and the re-emergence of conservative activism and the 10th Amendment. Ha ha

FUBO, FUMR. You are both gun grabbing socialist SoS.

Never expect an intelligent answer from anyone stupid enough to openly support a liberal for elected office.

Sadly, none of them have yet managed to gainsay your impeccably reasoned dictum.

You are sick person and not worthy of debate. I understand your stance now. Good day!

Translation: "I lied. I lied badly, and in a public forum. I am no more capable of 'checking your math' than I am of flying through the air, unaided."

Show me where BOTH parties are aligned with muslims...

Well, for starters bishop Romney follows this -

The Prophet inculcates the notion, and it is believed by every true Mormon, that Smith's prophecies are superior to the laws of the land. I have heard the Prophet say that he would yet tread down his enemies, and walk over their dead bodies; and if he was not let alone, he would be a second Mohammed to this generation, and that he would make it one gore of blood from the Rocky mountains to the Atlantic ocean; that like Mohammed, whose motto in treating for peace was, 'the Alcoran or the Sword.' So should it be eventually with us, 'Joseph Smith or the Sword.' These last statements were made during the last summer. The number of armed men at Adam-ondi-Ahman was between three and four hundred" (History of the Church 3:167).

Romney: islam is not an inherently violent faith

Make sure you read the parts where he says jihad is not part of islam and that islam is one of the world's great religions>

You’d think my own question posted across a dozen ABO threads...”How can a conservative vote for a liberal without abandoning his conservatism/everything he or she believes in?” would be a simple one to answer.

But they would rather spend books worth of type justifying and ultimately hiding their closeted liberalism.

Because no conservative who actually believes in principle, morality, right and wrong could EVER vote for a liberal. If the founding fathers had the ABO attitude displayed by the so-called ‘conservatives’ on FR, we’d be singing “God Save the Queen” as our national anthem.

Whatever. I’ll be honest. I WISH I could vote for Romney. That’s how much I want Obama gone. But I can’t, and I won’t.

Recently a Freeper posted a picture of two sodomites at some San Francisco “street fair.” They had their adopted toddler with them. The child was wearing leather bondage clothing. Mitt Romney supports that. I don’t support Mitt Romney.

“In the end God will choose.”

God chose to give us Free Will, a wonderful and very dangerous gift.

As Joshua said over 3000 years ago, “Choose this day whom you will serve.”

Those who say, “I refuse to be bullied into voting for a candidate that is not a real conservative”, have effectively chosen to serve the other candidate.

All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Me, you, Obama and Romney. However, in reality, some are far, far better at evil than others. Edmund Burke, as always, was correct. In case some may have forgotten one of the things he said:

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

Remember, it was Rahab the Harlot who helped Joshua & Caleb.

When your grandchildren ask you, “What did you do in the great battle to save the Republic?” You can proudly tell them, “Absolutely nothing! I stayed home and clung to my pristine conservative ideals and let others re-elect the man who finished destroying America.”

When Romney wins (and I believe there are enough scared people to elect him) I fully intend to rub every gay law/rule he passes and every abortion restriction he undoes in the faces of the FR ABO brigade.

Every time Romney goes full liberal, it is the duty of every principled conservative to haunt the ABOs on FR with ‘thank you’ messages when they ‘forget’ who they voted for.

Because it will be entirely their responsibility.

You Mittbots have had free reign slamming Conservatives who won’t vote for an abortion promoting, homo-marriage backing, gun-grabber.

Add it up any way you want. A vote for Mittens is a vote for a liberal. Worse - it’s a vote for a liberal that calls himself a Conservative. That deserves an a$$ kicking, not a vote of support.

Remember the New Orleans "Ain't"s...the fans who went to Saints games wearing bags over their heads because they were ashamed of being associated with such a bad team?

As one who will definitely be ashamed of voting for the "Inventor of Obamacare" in November, I suggest we do the same.

I put it in the same category as visiting DUmmyland...requiring a hot, soapy, decontaminating shower afterwards.

If Obama getting elected ensures this country is doomed then this country is doomed no matter if he is elected or not. Let’s get this sh*t on and over with while were still young enought to do something about it and enjoy the results. I don’t want to be 75 when all this finally falls apart.

Doubt that's the case for most on FR. It certainly is not true for me.

My principles won't allow me to NOT cast a vote against obama. I just cannot do that to my country. He must be stopped in November.

I find it amazing that people who will directly cast their vote for a man with a life history of abortion support (including giving his own money and signing pro abortion laws) think they have no responsibility for any of it.

But they will. They KNOW what he is and are WILLINGLY casting their vote for him...empowering him.

They can make all the excuses they want, but there’s one guy that won’t listen.

Not to pick on you personally, but have you stopped to think that there has been very little Obama has done the Republicans couldn’t have stopped in Congress, yet, they do nothing? This isn’t all Obama’s fault. There are checks and balances built into that Constitution we all so love yet no Republican really uses them. There are also loads of liberal Democrats to defeat, like Nancy Pelosi, yet, the Republican party doesn’t seem all that interested in getting those liberals out of office.

This is just all bread and circuses to me.

I also find it amazing that these ABOers would say without reservation that if a man had sex with another man, he would be a homosexual...but somehow a conservative can vote for an abortion and gay supporting liberal and still be a ‘God fearing’ conservative.

Any of you ABO types out there care to explain that one for us?

It is unfortunate that so many people are hell bent on handing him another 4 years because of their disdain for Romney.

Not really wanting to state the obvious, but unfortunately, folks like you set THAT train in motion by voting for Romney, instead of a real conservative. Be an adult and accept the consequences.

The Romneybots caused the pickle. The rest of us are simply exercising our remaining options.

If that doesn't suit you, tough noogies.

There is not a damned thing you can do about that now.

Ah. I see -- when your candidate loses, it's because the folks who refused to vote for him "voted for the other guy even though they didn't but it was just the same as if they did because the other guy won and he would have LOST if only the folks who didn't vote or who voted for a third party had voted for my guy!"

If Romney loses, it won't be because a bunch of conservatives "voted for Obama." It will be because Romney failed to net enough votes to win.

Distortions and emotional rationalizations to the contrary, mathematically and materially there's only ONE WAY for a conservative or any other American to vote for Obama, and that's to mark Obama's name on the ballot.

There's only ONE WAY for a Democrat, an Independent, or any other American to vote for Romney, and that's to mark Romney's name on the ballot.

There's only ONE WAY for any American to vote for government tyranny, and that's to mark the name of a liberal statist on the ballot.

A vote for either Romney or Obama is a vote for government tyranny. A third party vote, whether it is cast by an Environmentalist Wacko Pinhead, an angry Libertarian, a high-minded Independent, a disillusioned Democrat, or a conservative like me who refuses to participate in this charade of Obama vs Obama lite, favors neither Romney nor Obama. However, every single third party vote will work toward denying a popular mandate for whichever bastard wins.

Considering that the bastard is guaranteed to be an authoritarian statist either way, having to be on the defensive facing enemies within his own party as well as the opposing one, all supported in their opposition to him because the majoritiy of Americans were on record as rejecting him at the ballot box, would be a good thing.

Pray for a plurality. Vote for plurality.

They are no more conservative when the rubber hits the road than Bill Ayres. Their actions, and logical deduction prove that.

Some people are really scared of what the Kenyan might do next, I know I am. I think we all want the same thing but have a different opinion on how to get there. I think if the Kenyan followed the rules it might make a difference but with all Czars, executive orders and Eric Holder we don’t stand a chance if he gets 4 more years.

He told Putin to wait until after the election when he has more flexibility. Flexibility to do what? The Kenyan scares the hell out of me.

Disagree. It's called common sense. obama is and will continue to destroy this great country. He must be stopped. He cannot be stopped unless he is voted out. How do you do that? Vote for the other guy.

You are saying a vote for a liberal is not conservative. I could just as easily say allowing obama to continue destroying this country is not conservative.

The founders understood common sense. They used it in writing the Declaration of Independence. What if certain ones had stood on their principles against slavery? Where would we be? They decided to fix that later......and this country paid a heavy price. But we had a country.
