I know Romney's not a hit with Freepers. Truth be told he was FAR from my first pick as well. BUT...

I refuse to be bullied into voting for a candidate that is not a real conservative.

That is all.

A vote against Obammy IS THE ONLY reason to vote for Romney. There are no other reasons. None what-so-ever.

It's a point that needs to be hammered home.

I'm no fan of Romney but the alternative is unthinkable. Our country is nearly gone. Four more years of this crap and it will be completely unrecognizable.

I am really P.O'd about the treatment of Sarah Palin but I think they will relent and let her attend the convention, even be a speaker. The GOP has too much to lose not to recognize her influence.

4 years of Obama or 8 years of Romney .... pretty much a wash to me.

So, since the GOP has decided that they neither want nor desire conservatives like me. I’m voting Constitution party at the top of the ticket. Maybe the GOP will see enough conservatives NOT support the party ticket that they will change their tune next time around.

I won't vote for 0. Fear tactics and witty remarks won't get me to vote for his albino twin either.

I compromised my values in 08 for mcCain't because of Palin. We were knifed in the back by the GOP-E and left feeling like an immoral $2 whore. Never again. Why vote for the (R) candidate if the GOP-E won't listen to the base? They have no incentive to change.

As for the fear tactic........creditors may call and harass you. Declare bankruptcy and start over. The swamp has been morally bankrupt for quite some time now; it's time to flush the negative equity and start over. Or get on an effective CONSERVATIVE management plan, like today - hint, it isn't romney.

Some people may look at me and wonder why choose this hill to die on...........well, it's my damn hill.

Somebody needs to remind these guys that if you vote for a non-Conservative you can't be a real Conservative.

Neither one of these guys is a Conservative.

Both candidates are avowed Progressives. It doesn’t matter which one you vote for because the destination is the same.

Romney isn’t a hit with FReepers because he is a liberal. Those voting for him are voting for a liberal. Yes or no?

Vote Against the worst candidate.

That is what you should do, in every election.

Obama is the WORST candidate, and a vote for anyone other than Romney is a vote for Obama.

Received in an email today...

YOU MAY NOT LIKE MITT ROMNEY, BUTTTTTT!!! HERE’S SOMETHING TO CONSIDER....

Columnist Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most important question regarding the upcoming presidential election. if Mitt wins the nomination, as seems very likely, I will enthusiastically support his candidacy. For my friends who have hesitation on that score, I’d just ask you to keep four things in mind:

1.. Justice Scalia just turned 78
2.. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year
3.. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August
4.. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.

We wish them all well, of course, but the brute fact is that whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one and maybe more new members of the Supreme Court — in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come.

If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, think again!

So, for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didn’t get nominated, or writing in a candidate who can’t win, imagine this: SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ERIC HOLDER.

When an incumbent is on the ballot, the election is about the incumbent.

If you do not vote for Romney, you are voting for Obama.

Any Vote That Isn't For Romney Is Effectively A Vote For Obama

Horse crap... and full, repetitive horse crap, at that.

Posit the following vote totals, just for the sake of demonstration:

OBAMA: 1,000,000 votes.

MITTENS: 1,000,000 votes.

OTHER: 5 votes.

Further posit that my vote is the sole ballot remaining, and yet to be cast.

Demonstrate: How my not casting a vote for Mittens increases Obama's vote total from 1,000,000 to any other number.

Use both sides of the paper, if necessary. Show ALL of your work.

Nonsense!

You must work against the greater evil, and the greater evil is Obama.

The Soviet Union was ALWAYS evil, but we worked with “Uncle Joe” Stalin in our fight against Hitler.

Survival is the issue, and our country as we know it will not survive another 4 years of Obama.

You know that either Obama or Romney will win.

ADMIT IT, you will be relieve, even after your “Punctious Pilot” washing of your hands, if Romney wins, won't you?

Folks,

Instead of must-vote-Romney vs. never-vote-non-Conservative food-fight, can we consider our common goals?

Near-term (Nov 2012-Jan 2013) Goal - Elect the most conservative Representative, Senator, and President so that the progressive (socialist) agenda is halted & rolled back.

Long-term Goal - Establish (or Convert) a Major party dedicated to conservative values and to the return to the limited government per the constitution.

Remembering that the presidential election is 50+ contests, not a nationwide popular election, there are different tactics, based on your state, to move the nation to the near term and strategic goals.

If you are in a Republican-dominated state, which is likely to elect Mr. Romney, you are the vanguard to accomplishing the long-term goal. Your presidential vote should be cast for the conservative party... to ensure they are on the ballot next cycle and to send a message to the RINOs.

If you are in a Democarat-dominated state (such as in my case - Maryland), which is likely to elect Mr. Obama, our votes and support for Republicans down-ballot will strengthen the local effort to reduce Democrat strength. Our presidential vote can also be cast for the conservative alternate.

However, for those in the Battleground State (you'll know by the number of political ads on TV & radio), you must focus on the short term goal — the departure of Mr. Obama from the seat of power. Yes, you must vote for Mr. Romney. Please let us in the other states to carry your “message” to the Republican party, or they are not correctable, to ensure that the conservative party can get ballot slots in the next cycle.

We cannot get to the long-term goal which we all aspire to without achieving the short-term goal. Even us in the hopelessly Democrat states can man the phone-banks to the battleground state which will determine if we get the short-term goal.

Please consider how your actions will impact our beloved country.

Every judge Romney has appointed has been a liberal so whats your point? You actually think he would nominate a conservative to the court.. Islamist will eat bacon lettuce and tomato sandwiches topped with pulled pork petting their beloved pet dog before that ever happens. The destination of the court is into irrelevancy lead by a mental moron Roberts and Romney won’t ever bring it back.

Voting third party will ensure another Obama term. It is unfortunate that so many people are hell bent on handing him another 4 years because of their disdain for Romney.

Yes, you must vote for Mr. Romney.

I agree with everything you said up until that paragraph. I will be voting in what some people think is a Battleground State, but I will be voting against both Obama and Romney. I have a candidate that I will will vote for with pride.

You think it is crucial that Romney gets elected president. I don't. And, I'm not alone in feeling that way. As time goes on, you are going to find more and more people who just don't think it's crucial or even good that Romney gets elected president.

Empirical evidence for why chasing the lessor of two evils will benefit this Nation that has trillions in unfunded liabilities in which the Repubs are too scared to touch (Iron Triangle of government entitlement spending).

Is Romney going to lead the fight in stopping the military from being an OPEN playground of homosexualizd parafilia?

How is Romney going to manage the debt? Will Romney force the Speaker of the House to close shop on K-Street and the vast amounts of earmarks/pay to play schemes?

Will Romney fight for hardcore originalist like Justice Thomas or go moderate like Souter (who might have well been called Ginsburg)?

Will Romney fight total wars or leave are bravest stranded on an island of political correctness like the last five Republican Presidents?

Please don't give me this “perfectionist” crap, I want reason and accountability not pragmatic excuses which is far from asking for perfection.

There is nothing to admit. Either Obama, hopefully with some opposition, or Romney, more likely with less opposition from Congress, will rip this country apart. Their Progressive goals are the same. Only the means and perhaps the speed differ.

That is an ignorant statement.

Not voting for Romney means you are not voting for Romney and that is all it means. Just like not voting for BHO means you are not voting BHO and that is all it means.
