Why Iím Voting for Mitt Romney and Why You Should Too
godfatherpolitics.com ^ | 7/27/2012 | Gary DeMar

Posted on 07/27/2012 3:37:16 PM PDT by Signalman

The first reason is easy: Barack Obama. It is shocking to think that a Marxist could ever be president of the United States. But it happened. People always ask, “How could those people have sat back while ________________ came to power. That could never happen here.” Well, it did happen here. As a nation, we sat back and let Barack Obama win in 2008, and look at what we got. Granted, John McCain was not much of an alternative.

Some people might argue that the reason I don’t like Barack Obama is because he’s black. There’s no truth it. There are a number of black people I would love to see sitting in the White House, not because the’yre black, but because their worldview is right.

In fact, it’s the white half of Obama that I don’t like. How could his mother, who is white, associate with so many self-avowed Marxists? Didn’t she know how socialist, Marxist, and fascist policies have destroyed nations? Didn’t she realize that it was socialism and Marxism that has kept much of Africa in poverty? Let’s not forget Cuba, North Korea, East Germany and East Berlin, and the former Soviet Union. The facts are there for anyone to see.

Surely she had some idea of how the supposed Great Society programs that became law under Lyndon Johnson have wrecked the black family, turned the poor into a dependent voting-block that is beholden to a single political party with the result that the Democrat Party takes blacks for granted and the Republican Party ignores blacks because it has almost no chance of getting their vote.

Blacks have been duped by blacks. You don’t have to be in chains to be a slave, and there are more blacks in slavery today than there were in the 1850s.

If Romney wins, there will be a coattail effect, but not if disgruntled conservatives and Paulians stay home. This means that we can beef-up the conservative votes in the House and Senate. If we don’t get behind Romney, it’s almost assured that we will lose congressional seats.

Some will say that Romney’s just like Obama. That’s nonsense. Is Romney as conservative as I would like to see in a candidate? No. But he’s more conservative now than when he was governor of Massachusetts. The primary forced him to the right. Will he remain as conservative as his recent rhetoric seems to indicate? I don’t know. That’s why we need a strong Congress to put a brake on any broken-promise policies.

There are lots of people who believe Ron Paul’s going to get the nomination at the convention. It’s not going to happen. If it were to happen, he would lose bigger in November than Barry Goldwater lost to Johnson in 1964. Paul gave it a good shot. Did he get revolution started? That remains to be seen. But he didn’t win. Get over it for this election.

Romney’s been going on the attack. His comments on Obama’s “You didn’t build that” speech was fiery and passionate. This conversation with Brian Williams encouraged me that Romney’s not afraid to take on the media and doesn’t need a teleprompter. An exchange that Romney had with Brian Williams of NBC News was priceless. Williams, apparently reading from a script, asked Romney if it was true that he’s looking for an “incredibly boring white guy” to be his vice-president. Here was Romney’s reply: “You told me you were not available.” All Williams could say was, “Touche.”

These two encounters might not mean much, but they can be tipping points in an election. They give confidence to Romney, and they put the media on notice that they’re dealing with someone who’s not afraid to fight back without being nasty. Let’s be clear: The media are a fifth column. They’re going to do everything they can to get Obama re-elected. They can’t admit that they made a huge mistake in 2008.

The majority of Americans aren’t as conservative as most readers of this website. We’re still dealing with an electorate that’s on the government dole. They need Obama to win. There’s not much that’s going to change that except a national collapse. There are a lot of people who think that would be a great idea. It would be horrific. No one will come to our aid.

I don’t believe in messianic politics. I don’t believe any candidate is going to save us. Many of the problems our nation faces were created by us. We’re government drunkards. Too many of us like government programs that benefit us while we rail against programs that don’t. If you send your children to government (public) schools, you’re on the dole. You might not like hearing that, but it’s true. You’re not paying what it really costs. You’re using some of your neighbor’s money.

If we play this election right, Romney will give us a chance to right the ship of State. Liberals aren’t afraid of making small gains. We didn’t lose this nation in one election; we’re not going to get it back in one election.

He is the leader of a pack

News to me. Do I get a stipend?

he said yesterday that he might vote for Romney if enough of us beg him

Are you referring to me? If so, show me that thread.

I have been adament from the beginning that I won't vote for a liberal, pro-abort, anti-gun candidate.

Conservatives won't be voting for Romney. Because he's not conservative. Republicans might, because he's got an (R) behind his name.

If you think I need banned from FR, mash that abuse button and get me kicked.

That's your gig.

And your gig is to vote for someone that cannot possibly win.
I started out liking Newt but he went squirrely on me then I liked Perry because of his executive and energy experience but he couldn't get it together. I really like Bachmann because she understands the immediacy of danger this country is in, but she can't any attention. So I am left with a vote against Obama. God help us.

Unlike Mittbots, I'm not interested in shoving my preference down anyone's throat.

I would have voted for several of the GOP primary candidates, but the GOPe cheated and bad-mouthed them out of the game. Now, the GOP is stuck with Mitt. He won't get my vote.

Do you really think my vote is that important? It is to me, to vote my principles. But as far as outcome? Not in my hands.

You can fret and be fearful all you like. I refuse to. I also refuse to vote against my principles.

He is the leader of a pack of 7 or 8 here who jump on these threads with the goal of dividing our side so Obama can run through the gap and back to the White House.

Even so, ynot, they seem to be conservative patriots with a different mindset. To them, I can only hope I come across as a conservative patriot with a different mindset. I see no evidence they want the purple lipped as$hat back in the White House...they just feel they need to vote their true convictions. I respect that while at the same time I (I only speak for myself here) think I am looking beyond one poor election to a bigger picture.

I have seem many responses where folks have said "I voted for McCain" and I won't lower myself again".

Right!!! That really hurt me too.

But from what I see, the next time anyone voices their opinion on a candidate other than Choombama, they won't just be lowering themselves, they will be lowering their necks for a muslim blade. They can doubt this at the peril of themselves and their family.

At least Romney’s not a commie, and he’s never eaten any dogs.

That alone is good enough reason to vote for him, hehehe.

(Speaking of dogs......has ANYONE seen Bo lately?

Give it up, they will not tell you because winning is the last thing on their mind. Their debating style is to fire and retreat not stand and defend. They will never tell you their path to victory because they have none.

Poor little Bo. I saw the Kenyan on TV yesterday and he looked like he some fur on his lip. We should demand to see Bo.

Winning what? How the hell can I win when the top two candidates are both liberals. I'm screwed either way, because I consider a conservative in office a win.

My path to victory is to do right, and leave the results to God.

All I have EVER said is that I won't vote for a pro-abortion, anti-gun, socialized medicine, big-government liberal.

That TN Nanny poster got at me tonight...took everything I posted and/or posted to her, twisted into me making some personal attack against her and responded back like Jay Carney telling everyone today that the Winston Churchill bust never left the White House. Several made up stories that I attacked her.

She actually included the FR owner, Robinson, Cc'ed in one response...I guess to call for his help and get me banned.

I swear it was like conversing with Chris Matthews, wondering where the heck she was pulling out the crap she was returning.

All in all though, we all are passionate about how to get to a future free of obama...I get that. My way includes voting for that POS salami salesman romney...sadly he has been put before us as the only choice outside obama...others say they cannot do that. So be it...I hope they are the exception and not the rule.

No more so than if Romney is elected. We've survived socialists before. See FDR.

That's not true. There will be several more on my ballot than those two socialists.

Simply ask the following:

Thank you.

Those that oppose Mitt find that extremely offensive.

I don't do a lot of 'feel' when making decisions. That's a liberal thing.

I think that each person should examine his principles, evaluate the available candidates and vote (or not) based on their principles.

“My path to victory is to do right, and leave the results to God” You have that right. Can’t argue with that even though my pride fights me all the way. Thank you for your service and I really mean that sincerely and I would never want you banned from here. If truth be told I think much of what you are saying is correct. Romney did lie. A lot. I believe he thought the only path to the White house was to have once served as a Senator or Governor and in his State he had to portray himself as a center left Republican to get elected. It didn’t work when he ran for Senate but it did for Governor but not enough to win re-election. I believe he is a conservative and always was but he felt he had to deceive the voters of his State to win and get the cred he needed to try for the WH. I’ll do what you said (or was it John Adams) and “do my duty and leave the results to God.”
