If we ignore our principles and vote in Romney, whose record is little better than Obama's, then the left will unite and unleash havoc. Probably claiming Romney "stole" the election, while we (the conservative right) will be divided. IMO, Romney WILL enslave us, if he must, to meet their demands. What's about to happen is straight out of the George Soros playbook for collapsing a country.
So, there's a bunch of trouble coming no matter who wins the presidency (if we make it that far). Our best option would be to unite and elect a strong conservative who will begin to turn the ship around. It still means blood in the streets. But a strong leader will see us through it and the country will emerge stronger on the other side.
Our second best scenario is if Obama is reelected. He will be a burden to the Left's agenda. Hell, Louis Farrakhan has already been making threatening statements about him. A second term Obama will unite the right like the British did at Concord.
The worst thing for conservatives, would be to elect a weak republican leader whose record on socialism, abortion, gun rights, taxation, and big government are little better than Obama's.
In any event, there's a lot that's going on in the world and much that will happen between now and November. May God be with us for we are in a dangerous time. Indeed, may we endeavor to be on God's side through these strange times.
I hope I'm wrong...
IMO we need a general more than we need a President...either that or Gandhi with a shillelagh...
In my mind, I would love to ask the spirit of President Reagan one question.
Mr. President, have we passed the point where we, or our children, can expect to have any profitable intercourse with our government? Are we now in that state of affairs, described on the Declaration, when a patriot’s duty is to throw off their government and provide new guards for their future security?
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established, should not be changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all experience [has] shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce [the people] under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Thomas Jefferson: Declaration of Independence, 1776. ME 1:29, Papers 1:429
That is the bottom line....and the times are indeed strange to say the least. May God see fit to step into the affairs of men once more.
Thank you for the well thought civil response. Yes, either way this country is in a bad spot. What you fear about Romney is what I fear about Obama. But I don’t see Dems turning on him. Pelosi, Biden, and company blindly follow that fool. That wont change and they’ll destroy any Dem that does show any resistance.
All that said ... I do fear for our country no matter who gets elected.
