Drop Out Mitt Romney

Posted on 03/26/2012 10:57:00 AM PDT by Advocatus Sancti Sepulchri

I will not vote for Mitt Romney under any circumstance in November. The fact that he is the frontrunner is a disgrace and those that endorse him, those delegates that vote for him, and the establishment have my full contempt. He is the John Kerry of the Republican Party. His record is very liberal on virtually every issue. He is a shameless opportuntist..the etch sketch will reset for the general election. If you support the second amendment, marriage, pro-life cause, etc., how can you justify voting for Mitt Romney? He's treating republicans, or at least conservatives, like idiots while his surrogates plan to dump the weak, phony campaign of faux conservatism at the next step. He will lose worse than Ford, Dole, and McCain.

Our chance to force Romney out happened back about this time last year when the best we could do was muster candidates like Cain, Perry and Bachmann who all disappointed us. If we can't fill a GOP debate stage with better candidates, why is it Romney's fault that he is now running ahead of candidates we were not supporting back in those first five or six debates? He is ahead because the rest of the pack have their own issues.

You're wishing for a do-over. Good luck with that

Given the choices..prefer Newt but Santorum is the clear challenger and solid on social issues. So I’m with Rick Santorum.

Of course, this may all be academic anyway... If Willard hijacks the nomination, I cannot see a path to which he can win. Many won’t vote for him because of his religion. Many more won’t because the media will remind folks about his religion’s exclusion of Black folks until relatively recently (as the 1970s is), hence he will be called a racist on those grounds. The rest of us will not vote for him because he is #1, a pathological liar; #2, he is a Socialist; #3, he is an uninspiring, out-of-touch phony.

4 years ago, the media and the establishment pushed the false meme that the GOP MUST nominate a “moderate” (liberal) in order to win. Well, the party put up one of those in John McCain (for whom 4 short years earlier gave serious consideration to switching parties to run with John Kerry). By that reckoning, McCain should’ve won in a landslide. Willard is an even more polarizing figure to the party grassroots. How is someone with all that baggage (which the media, again, will spend 24/7 until November reminding the public of) hope to somehow surpass McCain’s standing ? Simple. He can’t.

Somebody asked me what it would take to vote for Willard, and the answer is “nothing.” He’s not fit for any political office, and with his megalomania and pathological desire to obtain the highest office, he is more fit for a psychiatric office. I haven’t spent several years exposing him and his record and his personality traits to simply turn around and vote for him knowing what I know. He’s a Trojan Horse for the Democrats, and his victory could guarantee the demise of the Republican Party.

What is so sad is there has imho such widespread voter fraud for all the conservative candidates.

Look at Ron Paul he had a rally with over 5000 people and that county when the vote came in said zero people voted for him.

Romney rallies have fewer people that all the other yet he continued to do well.

Imho someone with an agenda wanted to make sure our candidates fight and look stupid.

People look the other way and don't care if Ron Paul's votes are not accurate......
BUT they have cheated the others too

ps I prefer Newt too.

Experts: Credit Romney for homosexual marriage
World Net Daily ^ | 07/14/2007 at 1:00 AM | Bob Unruh

Posted on Monday, March 26, 2012 1:57:16 PM by SoConPubbie

While former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney claims he did everything possible to throttle homosexual marriage in his state – his campaign now saying he took “every conceivable step within the law to defend traditional marriage” – several constitutional experts say that just isn’t so.

“What Romney did [was] he exercised illegal legislative authority,” Herb Titus said of the governor’s actions after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court released its opinion in the Goodridge case in 2003. “He was bound by what? There was no order. There wasn’t even any order to the Department of Public Health to do anything.”

He is NOT a Conservative. Period. therefore if America does not want to vote for a conservative, then America is no longer conservative. I will write in my candidate’s name as a public statement to my beliefs and ideals.

I will not join the crowd.

A vote for Romney is a vote for Obama is a vote for Robamney is a vote for Obamney.... There is no meaningful difference unless one imagines that malignant materialism is the apex of human society. Even then, both of them are malignant materialists who differ only in whom they want to get the goodies taken from others. Both of them are also the worst serial liars to run against one another for POTUS in American history. Both of them also are demonstrating the power of BIG, BIG money to buy nominations and elections.

I agree with you 100% and we have to get on the ball and support Santorum..a brokered convention is our best hope. Romney will hand Obama another four years like Dole did for Clinton and we cannot afford it.

The mistake you’re making is in thinking that the vast bulk of the American electorate is going to make a decision based on logic and some sort of a real analysis the way you or I would. I believe there are a lot of people out there who are going to vote for the person they feel has the bigger Johnson, and the thing which is really hard to get your head around is that those people’s votes count for exactly as much as ours do. The one thing we know about Romney is that he is the only one of the remaining candidates ever to win an election outside of solid red territory. He does seem to believe in American exceptionalism and he would not keep the present damper on American energy policy. I know that isn’t much, but it’s better than all numbers coming in negative which is what we have now.

Right now I am not voting for President, either for Etch-a-sketch or O-Bomb-Us. If Etch-a-sketch starts to run towards the middle and really pisses me off I may actually do the unthinkable. Screw the NeoWhig Party.

Yes, Romney’s most atrocious action was with regard to marriage. He supports the homosexual agenda as rabidly as any leftist I’ve seen..he destroyed the institution of marriage, he supported companies with radical social agendas, he supports homosrxuals in the military, he appointed homosexual activists to the bench, he endorsed youth gay pride parades, and the list goes on and on.

We, the Republic, are being denied the choice to say NO to socialism.
It’s a setup.
The fix is in.
We, the Republic, have been loosing a war of financial attrition for decades. We, the Republic are engaged in a war with those who govern us. Drastic measures are required to defeat this enemy in order to stop the bleeding that each of us are seeing in the depreciation of our savings, the constant onslaught of taxes, fees, and licenses. Each of them designed to remove our ability to live free.
If a slave is a person who works for no money, then a paid person who works with no money left for savings or investment is therefore a slave. In each case work is done, the slave is fed and roofed.
Sen. Joe McCarthy was right. Kruschev was right. We have to fight a battle to stall the red threat until we can rise in strength.

We MUST vote Republican, regardless of who it is. We MUST show solidarity, hold the line shoulder to shoulder, urge everyone you know to vote not for Romney, but AGAINST OBAMA.
This will buy us enough time to take the Republican party back to it's constitutional roots.

Got a fortune cookie yesterday with my lunch, that reminds me of this thread. The fortune said, “Don’t argue with vain people with empty minds”.

No matter how much logic we use, to convince people we MUST vote for the Republican ticket in November – America’s survival depends on it”, - there are some who will never ever listen. Fortunately they are a very tiny percentage. And notice, we here very little from Paulbots anymore, I suspect most of them come from that camp, masking themselves as something else, to divide us.

Since when did crony capitalism become the same as private sector experience. I seem to recall Romney saying he knows how to get money and the money is in D.C.

So teach me.

I thought his main private sector experience was Bain Capital and Bain Capital shining star was Staples. If Staples' success was due to government intervention then I'll probably join you (though there still would be the atrocities thing) but if Staples' success was just due to doing it better for all of us who buy pens and paper then maybe you'll agree to hold your nose if that's what it comes down to.

Deal?

Santorum? Hilarious. Now there’s a recipe for an Obama-stacked supreme court.

I disagree. I have faith in the voting public, whereas you do not. Rather, it is a case of people not voting to vote for a candidate who doesn’t represent them and fails to offer any alternative. As for the two vague reasons you offer, let me point out Romney still believes in global warming and implemented his own cap and trade. Romney did become govenor in 2002, but Reagan won his state with 200,000 more votes in the 80s, Romney didn’t run for re-election because he was going to lose and the republicans were broken after 2006. And I could argue by that logic for Santorum winning a blue state.

He is as liberal on John Kerry..pick an issue.

You know something. I didn't read far enough into your post.

I already picked two issues, and you dodged one and ignored the other. (I know it was just a little thing like John Kerry's Winter Soldier thing, but still!)

Whose side are you on?
