Members of the Constitution Party affirm 7 basic principles: see the 5th principle below for “Constitution”

Life: For all human beings, from conception to natural death;

Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-governed individual;

Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted;

Property: Each individual’s right to own and steward personal property without government burden;

Constitution: and Bill of Rights interpreted according to the actual intent of the Founding Fathers;

States’ Rights: Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government, nor prohibited by the Constitution to the states, is reserved to the states or to the people;

American Sovereignty: American government committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, and not entangled in foreign alliances.

Excellent post, SoCon.

1 Thessalonians 5:22 - Abstain from all appearance of evil.

The Apostle Paul is very clear in Romans 3, you do not choose evil because you think it will result in good.

Romans 3:8 "8 Why not say--as we are being slanderously reported as saying and as some claim that we say--"Let us do evil that good may result"? Their condemnation is deserved. "

Hi, GSC. I’m not voting for Romney. I refuse to “vote for/support/sign my name to” a candidate who approves of killing babies and of homosexualism.

What’s his take on original intent with regard to abortion and capital punishment?

That the Declaration offers the best interpretation of “life” in regards to the 5th amendment is what I would guess based on this and other articles I’ve read.

To be clear, I have never met or talked to the man.

Romney supports gun control, GSC. I’ll have to stock up on ammo in any case. And he appoints liberal judges.

In fact, I think I’m picking up both a larger caliber rifle and pistol and ammo.

I've seen arguments with regard to original intent being divined from the Declaration. Those arguments stand in contrast to the absence of any federal legislation in the early years, when the Founders and the people who were involved in the drafting and ratification of the Constitution were in power.

I struggle with the proposition that we're going to enact legislation according to the original intent of the Founders that they themselves did not enact when they were in power.

Agreed, but I don't believe that makes the Declaration an enumeration of powers.

Well said.

You know, I really have to laugh at the ignorant saps who actually believe that Romney is going to “save” us from Obama.

It’s all part of the shell game. The right hand of the governing party gets to drive the car for a term or two now. But the car’s still going in the same direction.

I answered much the same logic just a few months ago.

To: SoConPubbie; Pilsner

If your best option is terrible, but the other is calamitous, you take the terrible option, and prevent calamity. You don't disdainfully point out how terrible the terrible option is, and allow calamity to occur by default. - Pilsner

I very much disagree with that thinking.

Look at you. You puff up your chest and start bloviating about 'taking up arms' as if you're John effin' Wayne, and you assume that nobody else has prepared and/or is packing the gear to prepare themselves. Further upthread, we had the following exchange:

mkj- Do you purport the notion that YOU, FReeper 'Dead Corpse' are infinitely wiser and more knowledgeable than those patriots? [referring to Palin, Gingrich, Santorum, Cain, etc. supporting Romney & Ryan against 0bama]

Is your Christianity as situational as your ethics?

I'll tell you what, you circle around behind me, bend down real low, and kiss my ass. I don't answer to you in such matters, I answer to Almighty God and if you and xzins are going to start church services and start bashing everyone over the head with the Bible, head on over to the Religion Forum and do it there.

America's house is on fire. 0bama started the blaze. Romney & Ryan are the only shot we have at putting out that fire. If all you and your ilk are going to do is piss gasoline on the flames, then it's time for you two morally superior beings to GTFO.

Goode would “eliminate automatic birthright citizenship”

I really hope he means that anchor babies won't be albatrosses around Uncle Sam's neck, and not that every single person in the US, legal or illegal, has to go through the citizenship process.

I agree that you answer to God and not to me.

I spelled out the deficient logic of those who tell a Christian that they should do evil so that good will result. That is unbiblical logic.

My biblical analysis, on the other hand, is supported by both the bible and by centuries of similar interpretation.

So far as some necessity to keep our religious opinions out of our political discussions, that is not the case on Free Republic. The religion forum exists for specifically religious threads, not to prevent freepers from speaking out on the religious basis of their political positions.

Jim Robinson, on the other hand, has said that Free Republic is a God, life, guns, etc., forum.

Well thank you very much.

Well preacher, in that case you need to take your Biblical analysis and your sermons, and head to the rear with the gear, the rest of us have a battle to fight between now and November 6th, ok? Like the saying goes, "either lead, follow, or get the Hell out of the way".

So far as some necessity to keep our religious opinions out of our political discussions, that is not the case on Free Republic. The religion forum exists for specifically religious threads, not to prevent freepers from speaking out on the religious basis of their political positions.

Then you might kindly counsel your fellow evangelist SoConPubbie who seems bent on passing religious judgment on FReepers who live in the real world, faced with real world situations which are not perfect and which have no absolutely pure and simple answers as you prefer.

Jim Robinson, on the other hand, has said that Free Republic is a God, life, guns, etc., forum.

And it remains so. And since you wish to cite our Founder, here's another thing JimRob says with every post in his tagline:

"Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God!!"

None of us are enamored with the idea of having to vote for Romney in order to stop the tyrant known as 0bama, but unless you have a way to pull a rabbit out of your magic hat and provide ANOTHER method of removing 0bama from office, the only way that is going to happen is by voting for Romney & Ryan on November 6th.

But you go right ahead and be a conscientious objector.

It defies reason as well. Expecting a RINO with a long liberal history to suddenly change his stripes and gives us the CONSERVATIVE solutions this Country needs to continue existing in any meaningful way...

The GOP platform is one of the most conservative in history. Social conservatives like Rick Santorum are thrilled with.

Compared to the Democrat platform perhaps... that's really saying alot, isn't it. I think you mean to say that the GOP platform WAS one of the most conservative in history... but not any longer, it's leaving conservatives just as the Democrat party left Reagan. After all, Rick Santorum isn't the nominee, is he? You might also want to check out Rush's article to get his insight as well.

Here are just a few excerpts:

"They want to stop all this impugning of conservatives and Republicans, and the way they think to do it is to get the conservatives out of the party."

"Everybody showing up there was at least united around a singular proposition, and that is: "We've gotta get rid of Obama." The disagreements are in how you carry the message. But there was unity of purpose, here. There was not unity of strategy, but there was unity in purpose. Now they've started this war within the ranks, to get through this messy process here of finally marginalizing the conservatives."

"The establishment, they just are embarrassed like they can't believe over the positions conservatives take regarding abortion and immigration. They're just embarrassed, and they want to get rid of it. They just want to get rid of it. Folks, if I may be blunt?"

"This country has a two party system. You are not going to get your way most of the time when it comes to the party's general election candidate. That's how 2 party systems work. They are as much about defeating an opposition as getting our own side elected. I wish we had a different system sometimes to be honest. I wish we had a system that allowed for coalition building. I am not sure our winner take all, 2 party system is all that super sometimes, but it's what we've got. Most of us under 40 have never had a presidential candidate we could really be excited about voting for in a general election. For the rest, Reagan is probably it.

What good is having a two party system in which one party has been co-opted by Liberalism and the other is in the process? Eventually you will learn that deciding between voting for the Democrat or the Republican will be like trying to pick up a dog turd by the clean end.

**Don't misunderstand, I'm not voting for Obama either... but my non-vote for Romney is not a vote in favor of Obama.**

You can try to convince yourself of that, but in the end, yes, you are helping enable Obama. Romney is the only ballot you can cast that has any usefulness in removing Obama from office. I know it, you know it and everyone else with a lick of sense knows it too.


Give me a break, you and all other Romney/GOPe kool-aid drinkers keep spouting the same nonsense that it's becoming half-way comical...

"A non-vote for Romney is a vote for OBAMA"
"We HAVE to get rid of OBAMA"
"The country won't survive 4 more years OBAMA"
"The sky is falling and the earth is burning because of OBAMA"

You presuppose that my vote automatically belongs to Romney. My vote belongs, first and foremost, to ME, sir. So explain how my vote for neither candidate is a de facto vote for one or the other?

Lastly, I have more faith in the good conservative people of this country... good people who believe in the 1st and 2nd Amendment and ARE WILLING TO FIGHT FOR IT... than I have in a flip-flopping, conservative-hating, abortion-loving, gay-marriage-advocating, RomneyCare-creating pile of toe-jam that YOU are enabling.

I need some coffee now.

"Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God!!"

Generally, an appropriate line.

It falls apart when the idea is to replace one evil baby killer with another evil baby killer, just because the 2nd guy kills a few less babies.

The Apostle Paul says the idea of trying to get good out of supporting evil is an already condemned plan. He goes on to say in Ro 5:"1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means!"

And, BTW, I am leading. You just don't like the direction. It will not be toward either Romney or Obama. You are absolutely correct, I conscientiously object to both of their evil plans for this nation.

I will not vote FOR aborted babies. I will not vote FOR gun control. I will not vote FOR gay couples. I will not vote FOR gay adoption. I will not vote FOR gay boy scouts. I will not vote FOR a gay military. I will not vote FOR Romneycare. I will not vote FOR social crony corporatism. I will not vote for phony "revenue enhancement" and pretend it isn't increasing my taxes. I will not vote for phony budget balancing schemes that take 27 years to come to fruition and cut not one red cent of spending.

Romney voters are voting FOR all of that.

Is that what conservatism has come to?

That, jessup, is CINO: conservative in name only. OR, it is deceived.

Sometimes being a leader means being brave enough to stand against the mob, the emotional, fearful mob, all by yourself, or so it seems sometimes.

Please do me a favor and ping me if you are referring to me.

Furthermore, our Lord and Savior commanded us to "Be ye perfect as I am perfect".

Some choices are hard in this life.

Some choices leave you standing all by yourself.

But the choice of who you vote for is not hard at all for a Christian.

SImply ask yourself, would Christ be happy by me voting for someone who is actively support the murder of unborn babies?

Would Christ be happy by me voting for someone who is actively supporting a sin, Homosexuality, that he calls an Abomination?

Those two questions alone, take away all the grey area when making that choice.

Furthermore, since you, nor anyone else, can find an example where God, his Prophets, Christ, or his Apostles commanded us to do Evil to do Good, the answer is perfectly clear, from a Conservative CHRISTIAN perspective that is.

Excellent, SoCon!

It is clear: We can't do evil thinking it's going to bring about some kind of good. We NEVER counsel to do evil, to sin.

Screw off you, you've been sticking to this thread like Elmer's glue, don't play that 'oh poor lil ol' me, that wicked sinner mkjessup didn't ping me and is talking about me!' card.

Furthermore, our Lord and Savior commanded us to "Be ye perfect as I am perfect".

I got a newsflash for you: you're not perfect and neither is any other flawed sinner on this Earth.

You and your fellow holier-than-thous can wail and gnash your teeth until the cows come home about the choices that are placed before us on November 6th. One of the two candidates will be sworn in as President in January 2013. One is that filthy Communist pig 0bama, the other one is Mitt Romney who, no matter your shrieks to the contrary, does NOT represent the sort of wickedness manifested in 0bama. Romney IS an imperfect choice, however he is the only choice that has a shot at defeating 0bama. You want 4 more years of 0bama? Then either don't vote, or vote for a fringe candidate like Virgil Goode who has no chance of winning.

If you self-righteous clowns were in a lifeboat on the ocean with the rest of us, some of us rowing, some of us bailing, you would be hacking holes in the hull with axes because the rowers and bailers didn't share your beliefs.

Everyone knows where you stand, how long are you going to beat that dead horse?

There you go with that projection again...

You might want to get a head start on running though. Lunch is coming up and some kid is going to kick your ass and stuff you in a locker pretty soon...

You're a real laugh riot. I mention 'projection' in an earlier post and you subsequently decide that's a good comment for you to make, you have the originality (and the intellect) of a mud puddle. And look how the mighty have fallen, from beating your chest about 'taking up arms' to swapping ad hominem for ad hominem. For someone who has been here since 1999, you're no longer a 'Dead Corpse', you have finished decaying and are more than ready for re-classification as 'worm food'.

But c'mon back with more uncreative insults, I've heard them all, and the day is young, maybe you'll surprise me with something that actually has some sting to it.

” Is your Christianity as situational as your ethics? “

Here is your problem. We are voting for a politician, not Jesus Christ.(in Romneys case voting against Obama, not for Romney)

Obama hates Christians, America, and free markets. His goal is to bankrupt America, and destroy the moral fabric in the process. Romney may not be able to stop the bleeding, and we could go under anyway. Romney is a gamble at best, and a rogue. Obama could intellectually, and spiritually be compared to Satan. To infer that those who choose not to allow a satanic POTUS to remain in power, are somehow less of a Christian than you is intellectually contemptible, and morally bankrupt.

I believe that God has allowed us to be prosperous and free because we are a Christian nation. Show me a biblical passage that says Christians should cower, and allow a Satanic leader to rule them. If we allow a satanic man like Obama to destroy the most Christian nation on earth, by somehow claiming a moral high ground, I pass.

Those are wise words SJB, and I'd like to think that it might sink into the skulls of these latter day Pharisees who have made a cottage industry out of passing judgment on those who don't buy into their spiritual and ideological purity tests so far as this election is concerned. They are the real life equivalents of the caricature of the wild eyed bearded man waving a sign around "THE END IS NEAR, REPENT" and for the record, the End just damn well MIGHT be near, but until it arrives, there are battles to be fought, and getting rid of 0bamugabe is the main event.

Romney is a complete jerk, but we might be able to push him to the right,through intimidation and coersion and survive to vote again in 4 years. If not, at least we didn’t line up at the slaughterhouse, following the judas goat.

Ah well... At least the kid that gave you a wedgie, stole your lunch money, and locked you in your locker allowed you to keep your iPad.

Bad news is, you aren't learning from your victim-hood that being a limp-wristed Leftist isn't going to get you very far in life.
