VANITY -- I am not voting for Romney, BUT if he wants advice, here is a sample
self | 6/28/2012 | self

Posted on 06/28/2012 12:35:47 PM PDT by Dr. Sivana

I am not voting for Romney, though I understand those who are.

That said, NOW is the time to change his phrasing from "I will work to repeal and replace Obamacare from Day One" (which means nothing) to actions more specific than merely agreeing to sign off on a passed bill that repeals Obamacare.

Example of rhetoric, "You want executive orders, Mr. President? You've got'em.

#1. The Sebellius rule manadating abortion and birth control coverage is Gone-zo.

#2. Anyone who wants a waiver has got one. (credit to rottndog)

#3. The centralized database is suspended, so we can prioritize those records that are commiting crimes and dealing drugs.

#4. The IRS will have to get its job done with 60% of the present workforce. Implementing Obamacare is not on their priority list.

etc.

You get the idea. Unfortunately, Romney cannot do it. Cain or Palin or Gingrich could have.

Gingrich could have got things done.

Many Republicans stayed home so they wouldn't vote for McCain. Unfortunately by default that kept Pelosi and Reid in power. That gave us ObamaCare.

You can repeat the same untrue statement over and over. It remains untrue. If you really believe that, what are you doing posting on a board run by a man who is voting for "Burlap Insane Obama"?

Republicans who stay home on election day are more important to Obama than the most wild-eyed, enthusiastic liberal.

I didn't say he did. Rush offers honest advice to liberals all the time. He doesn't expect them to like it or heed it.

You either Galt, advocate revolution, or enthusiastically endorse and support Romney. Anything else isn't just un American, it's anti American.

What you consider to be principle is nothing more than petulance and pride.

You probably meant to type:
"Then you're voting...etc."

One thing that is wrong with our country is that our school system was taken over and we have been dumbed down, especially with regard to civics and American history.

We can't see what is happening any more and even if we do, we don't see it for what it is.

That’s right. If you’re not going to vote for Romney then you have to fight. You can’t just sit back and not do anything.

If you are sitting this election out, FRiend, shame on you.

An American who does not vote to remove Obama has, as far as I’m concerned, lost any credibility. Your opinion does not count because you chose to sit at home and pout.

Hardly an exhaustive list. In my case, I advocate counter-revolution.

For those who plan on voting for Romney as an ABO move, I understand, and only ask that you make him offer up more than vague generalizations before the election, so that you can attempt to hold him to it if he should win after the election.

That's a shame because we could use all the help we can get to defeat a truly evil regime.

I understand everyone who can't stand Romney, I cant stand him either.
However, not making your vote count is like a player not playing in the super bowl because he doesn't like the head coach. Unfortunately for all of us we are either stuck with Obama or we have to give Mittens a chance.

I'll take my chances with the lesser of two evils. Sad to see it has come to this.

A quick trip to Wikipedia would inform you that Dr. Sivana is a fictitious mad scientist. The name is used tongue-in-cheek. He is evil, but far from stupid.

I recommend that you knock off the personal insults. They resolve nothing. Would you like to call JimRob stupid to his screen as well?

Dr. Sivana thank you for having sense. Everytime someone says they are not voting for a known liar and opportunist the claws come out.

Romney should listen to the advise of those on the right who will not vote for him. At heart he is a leftist and as soon as he takes office and starts trolling the DC circuit he will go weak and revert to his former ideology because of all the squawking libs. He is not the man who can stand strong on principle and direct or inspire us to find our way out of this miserable state of affairs.

I’m still on the fence on whether I’m actually going to vote for Romney, but the way I see it, is compared to Obama, he’s a saint.

After all, Romney was not raised and brought up by black liberation theologist, anti-colonialist, marxist, communist, socialist anti-America radicals. Romney was not raised in a foreign country. Romney may be a Mormon, but at least he believes there IS a God and that it is NOT him. And Romney does NOT surround himself with Communist/Socialist, Anti-American radicals.

I think the theology and beliefs behind the man are just as important, if not more so, than the politics and policies he’s supported. And while I don’t agree with many of Romneys socialist policies and that they DO align with Obama on many counts....I believe they are DIFFERENT men, with different ideals and different beliefs in what America should be.

Romney is after all, a CAPITALIST and he DOES have experience when it comes to running a business, managing people and positions and creating jobs.

My concern still lies however, with Romneys Progressivism and HOW influenced he is by the NWO elitist puppet masters.

And you are advocating "lie there and enjoy it". Going along what you are being handed is the opposite of what created this fine country of mine.

The primary system is in shambles, the Liberals have picked our candidate multiple times. We have no real voice in the process any more.

I will abstain from the Presidential box and vote down-ticket. I am not staying home, but I am not just taking what was foisted upon me. It is a small gesture you may think, but you are sending the message that McCain and Romney were what you wanted in a candidate - I am not.

By not voting against Obomination you are giving aid and comfort to our enemy from within. Thanks for nothing.

Mitt, was never my choice, I pushed for others but now we have 2 and only 2 choices.

Not only must Obomination be completely rupudiated and destroyed at the polls but so must every other democrat, liberal, communist, Marxist, Maoist, socialist be destroyed.

They need to get the message loud and clear. If anything needed to be destroyed by a stake driven through the heart it is liberalism. I cannot be allowed to survive this election.

If we do not soundly destroy every liberal progressive this November then some will remain to once again try to “fundamentally change this country”

This is what you are part and parcel of if you do not vote against the muslim marxist in chief.

Digging your heals into the ground only ruins your shoes and our country.

I am not voting for Romney, though I understand those who are.

I am assuming that you will vote - for US Senate, for a conservative US Congresscritter, and for state and local offices. If I am wrong in my assumption, then I hope you will reconsider and at least vote in those races. Note: Romney disgusts me, and I completely understand a refusal to vote for that big government liberal. The problem is that, with a near guarantee of either Obama or Romney, the survival of America as a free country depends on a conservative House and Senate to restrain liberal efforts from either occupant of our White House.

I’ll vote for Romney on one condition. He must pledge to use Executive power to exempt every single person and company in the nation from this attrocity until a repeal is passed.

AND

He must create an Executive Order mandating general amnesties of the NFRTR (NFA database) until the NFA and the Hughes Amendment are repealed.

He promises those and I’ll vote for him. Otherwise, I’m waiting for the war to start.

Not really. I firmly believe that Romney is a complete liar and scoundrel. Some who find him too liberal do not. I understand that.

Further, some believe he is a complete liar and scoundrel, but that he is less likely to go postal on the Constitution in the way Obama has, and that his slower, more methodical way will have to do until we get someone better.

Some of thse folks believe that the U.S. will be completely irretrievable after four more years of Obama regardless of the congressional makeup.

I firmly believe that Romney will remake the Republican party in his own image, treat tea partiers the way Dems treated southern moderates in their own party, as pariahs, and that there will be no chance whatsoever to have even ONE party to back after four or eight years of Romney.

We the jury, finders of fact, may disagree on some of the facts. I hope and believe that almost all of us have largely the same goals. Because of that, you won't see me calling any ABO-Rmney voter stupid.

You should read Jeff Head’s analysis of Romney.

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of freepers with the intelligence of bag of rocks and the need to hear their own squeaking. They may lose the country for good, already having done it once or twice.

Of course. I also plan to vote Hoefling for pres as well. I agreed with every word in your post.

Even among those who believe that not supporting Romney means the end of the free world, are you all donating as much to him as you would have to a Gingrich or Santorum Cain or Palin? If you are, will knock on as many doors, make the same number of phone calls?

I recommend that you put those energies in for the state and local offices, PARTICULARLY if you are in a state that is not in play. I am in Illinois. You do not have to worry about my vote hurting Romney's chances.

If Romney wins with votes like mine, the GOP-e will call in thier markers. They will not change, and will talk him into keeping Obamacare. The deline will simply slow, and you & I will be left hoping the government will take care of us in our old age.

If Romney wins without my vote, the vote counts will send a message to teh GOP-e when they compare Presidential vs. down-ticket (which they do). Maybe they will hear the message. If Obama wins without my vote, the decline will be so swift that, by the end of Obama's term, things will be despirate. If nothing else, we will no longer be a frog in a pot.

I cannot be lukewarm and take what the GOP-e has foisted upon me. It will be uncomfortable, but I must do what I can from my place in this Republic to send a message.

The founding fathers did not begin with revolution - they ended up there after all other means failed. They took smaller steps first. I am saddened that so many here seem to have lost sight of that part of history.

I didn't ask you to care. I posted VANITY and put it in BLOGGERS AND PERSONAL. You can care or not. You cared enought o state that you don't care.

I hope that on Wednesday, November 7, should Romney win, those who voted for him out of perceived necessity will start working on replacing him with a conservative in 2017.
