I know Romney's not a hit with Freepers. Truth be told he was FAR from my first pick as well. BUT...
Created for OMG! for America. Join the grassroots there, or just join the fun at the Facebook page here
I refuse to be bullied into voting for a candidate that is not a real conservative.
That is all.
You’re just stirring the broad masses to show up with pitchforks and torches.
A vote against Obammy IS THE ONLY reason to vote for Romney. There are no other reasons. None what-so-ever.
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 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.
Neither one of these guys is a Conservative.
Nothing says “Dem win” like a Clintonian plurality
Both candidates are avowed Progressives. It doesn’t matter which one you vote for because the destination is the same.
Is it also true that “Any Vote That Isn’t For Obama Is Effectively A Vote For Romney”? If not, why the difference?
Romney isn’t a hit with FReepers because he is a liberal. Those voting for him are voting for a liberal. Yes or no?
This thread should be pulled.
America back to work with money in their pockets can do a WHOLE lott'a somethin' good and better.
America back to work with money in their pockets can do a WHOLE lott'a somethin' good and better.
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.
Using your ‘spoon’ to stir the FR pot?
Agreed. I’m not really sure why many, including people on this thread believe a President Romney will produce the same result as an Obama 2nd term...really?
It’s MY vote. I’m not wasting it on a person with no principles whatsoever. I held my nose for McCain. That was the LAST time!!
Received in an email today...
YOU MAY NOT LIKE MITT ROMNEY, BUTTTTTT!!! HERES 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, Id 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 dont 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 didnt get nominated, or writing in a candidate who cant win, imagine this: SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ERIC HOLDER.
I was trying to figure out what was new about this, but when I got to your website, it occurred to me that maybe that was the whole point - to get me to go to your website.
Congratulations! You got me on that one.
If you do not vote for Romney, you are voting for Obama.
I will not vote for the lesser of two unthinkables. Many who are saying this now also said the same during and before the primaries.
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.
There is no other alternative.
Obama hates my country.
Romney does not hate my country.
This is not a difficult choice.
At best, Romney would put up a Roberts ( a trojan vote). If he follows his pattern, his choices would not be that good.
Mr. RomneyCARE HATES conservatives, conventional marriage,
conventional medicine, Constitutions, voting.
Did I mention conservatives?
Yeah, but the problem with voting for RINO Romney is that we’ll lose the country anyway - just a little later. Do you want your execution at high noon or tea time?
A vote not cast for Romney is one less vote for Romney, BHO or whoever do not get that vote.
A vote not cast for BHO is one less vote for BHO, Romney or whoever do not get that vote.
A vote not cast for whoever is one less vote for whoever, BHO or Romney do not get that vote.
Agree with the title of this thread but how come the TP pulls the weight of the GOP and gets stuck with RINO’s as the Presidential nominee? Chumps anyone? Yeh Willard blows but gotta vote for him and I will-—. ):
Yes, who to write in is a difficult choice. Both of the major party candidates are people for whom I believe it to be morally wrong to support with a vote.
When Willard publicly gets on his knees and begs Sarah Palin’s forgiveness for the years of unwarranted and false trash he dumped on her then maybe.... Until then F-_k Mitt Romney
“Romney does not hate my country.”
Anyone who favors gay marriage, amnesty for illegals, government run health care, et al., hates this country
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?
What do we do? We need to get Zer0 out of office. We need a plan.
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.
So, for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didnt get nominated, or writing in a candidate who cant win, imagine this: SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ERIC HOLDER.”
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.
I can't vote for a pro-abortion, anti-gun, socialized medicine, big-government liberal.
The caliber of the candidates just continues to plummet, and the leftist RINOs take your vote for granted. That doesn’t appear to be working.
Not genuinely surprised there's been no answer yet, mind you... but, still.
Romney did not appoint conservative judges when he was governor, why on earth do you think he would as president?
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.
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.
In the end god will choose.
