Are you displeased because you got what you gave?
Please do not play the innocent, we both know better.
You still dance around the central issue I stated, but I expected as much.
Oh, hell no.
Just don’t pretend that Romney supporters are innocent.
Just what is your central issue?
I love to dance, so please inform me.
Central issue? It has been repeated in almost every post to you by me on this thread. You haven’t been paying attention.
And letting so-called 27-year-old "children" use their parents' health insurance wasn't one of them. Letting able-bodied people in the prime of their life mooch off of others is one of the main reasons the welfare state is collapsing as fast as it is. And whether it's through state-run welfare or mandating the private sector provide welfare, it's the same thing. It lets these people survive while sitting at home doing nothing and not contributing to the tax base or the economy.
Let me tell you what my central issue is: the defeat of liberalism.

Signup dates don't lie and Free Republic didn't exist in any form in 1994.
So why do you choose to sustain the GOP-E through giving them a vote you freely state they don't care about?
You are absolutely, totally wrong.
The House and the Senate will repeal and he will sign without hesitation.
That will be true of lots of other things as well.
Just a question, when did FR start officially with accounts?
Didn’t FR have sort of a DOS formatted posting page then or soon after?
My first post was during the Clinton/Linda Tripp going on’s.
I think you did not have to sign up for an account, just posts. Have no memory of having an official account for a really long time, but I was posting.
I remember it, congratulated her on her bravery, then said she should get her hair cut, which followed by me being scolded, by FR women. ;-)
In the whole scheme of things, not earth shattering, just wondering.
I understand that is the hope.
How are you squaring your hope with what Romney is saying?
Ive been on FR since 1927
I don’t lie about what he is saying. I have no worn out dull ax to grind.
The central issue, IMHO, is whether the ends justify the means. It is true no candidate is perfect, but when the relative evil of both candidates exceeds the objective limits of true evil, choosing either one becomes a moral evil. The only justifications being offered are that 1) Romney is not as bad as we think he is, or 2) even if Romney was Lenin reincarnate, he would be better than Obama, because Obama is the worst possible choice.
The first premise is mere wishful thinking, and the second is nothing but moral relativism at it worst. Picture rats in a maze, prodded forward by fear of electric shock. They will choose whatever path the maze masters make less painful, a choice of evils. There is no cheese at the end of that labyrinth. Only a demonstration of total dictatorial control, driven entirely by fear.
But to make it even more sadistic, the rats must chose their lesser pain collectively, such that dissenters, those who object to the vile manipulations of tyranny, are compelled by their fellow victims to join the mindless pack or pay the price of independent thinking.
What each self respecting lab rat needs to do at this point is stop running which ever way they are told to run, to endure the pain of the maze master’s electrodes, and get out of that maze, whatever it takes. You will never win as long as you allow your would-be overlords to set the rules. Those rules must come from a higher authority. Principle, grounded in universal truth, is the true enemy of tyranny. It gives you power to endure the pain of those who would control you, allows you to keep marching in the right direction, no matter the distractions or obstacles thrown in your way.
Or, to put it more elegantly, if you will follow your Creator, and not your fear, you will know what is true, and it will set you free.
I never said you lied, never even implied it.
I asked how you square your hope of repeal of obamacare, with what Romney is saying now.
Officially, although FR has been around longer than this:
Account # 1
I’ve been here since the Civil War!
Oh wait, they’re still fighting it here, I may have my dates confused.
Then I guess you get Obama. Good luck with that.
Very elegant, but illogical.
It is not moral relativism to choose between a Communist and a RINO, it is a matter of survival for the nation.
You place yourself on a pedestal where supposedly there is no fear, but you fear making a decision in the best interests of the nation at this point in time, becasue of your intellectual purity, leaving such a weighty matter to your moral inferiors.
So be it.
