To our posterity - TOM HOEFLING
Tom Hoefling for President 2012 ^ | November 4, 2012 | Tom Hoefling

Posted on 11/04/2012 9:10:37 AM PST by EternalVigilance

This is a blood-bought land
We are a blood-bought people
The LORD purchased our souls
Patriots gave us a nation
Bold, courageous
Declaring self-evident truth
They fought, they died
For those they loved
With unborn millions not forgotten
They accepted and paid the purchase price
So that you and I could be free
Oh, what a supreme shame it would be
To fail to pass along this precious gift
To our posterity

"... what a supreme shame it would be To fail to pass along this precious gift To our posterity."

Tom, how does dividing the opposition vote to Obama pass anything good to 'our posterity'? You get the most dangerous enemy of We The People re-elected so he has four more years to finish the collapse and that is handing something to our posterity? ... Political Deception seems to suit you, Tom.

Oh, what a supreme shame it would be

To fail to pass along this precious gift

To our posterity

Zero or Romney will be the president elect Wednesday morning.

Aiding or abetting Zero to have anohter four years would indeed contribute towards failing to pass along the precious gift.

Therefore, in all sincerity, I would ask you to pass it along your posterior instead.

Knock it off with the vanity campaigns. Instead of pretending to be a real candidate you could have actually made a difference and devoted your energies (when you’re not posting on political forums) to getting out the vote for Romney as a means of defeating Obama.

“The LORD purchased our souls”

Sorry, dude, but the Lord didn’t ‘purchase’ my soul. It was given to me freely and unconditionally and I chose to dedicate my life to that G-d and no other, and certainly to no man. Do you think that G-d can be bribed? A god who needs to purchase your soul is no god at all. And a person whose soul can be purchased is doomed.

I have a different take on ya, Tom.

Okay, it's a given, you won't win. You won't even get an Elector.

However, I see a place for third-party candidates, unless, of course, like Ross Perot, they damage a Republican.

See, with a third-party candidate running, the issues that normally are ignored, can be brought to light.

Interesting story from a few days ago.

A supporter of mine, Jon, was standing in his driveway in Denver. He was approached by a black man with a clipboard, who, it turns out, was canvassing for Obama. He asked Jon to sign a pledge to vote for Barack. Jon responded, “No. I’m a Christian.” The man’s eyes got wide, and he said, “So am I,” and got his Bible out of his pocket. They ended up standing there talking for two and a half hours. Turns out the man, whose name is Jason, was from Chicago, had been out of work for six months, and took the canvassing job to feed his family. Anyway, the next day Jason quit the Obama campaign, Jon took him the airport, and he flew home.

First point:

There isn’t a ballot in the country that gives you a spot to vote against anyone. That means that your choices are to either vote FOR someone, or not to vote. This is a simple statement of fact.

Point two:

Neither Mitt Romney, nor any other candidate, nor any political party, are entitled to anyone’s vote.

Point three:

The only vote any one of us control is our own. And we are accountable only to God for how we expend it.

Not so.

If both Obama and "Not Obama" are collecting votes, then
a vote for "Not Obama" helps to defeat Obama. This isn't hard.

If your vanity "send a message" campaign drains votes from
"Not Obama" then what have you accomplished?

You have enabled Obama.

Oh goody.

You are not voting for anyone who will be POTUS next year. You are voting present and there is really nothing special about it. In fact, to cut and run in these historic times is pathetic.

Your vanity campaign is nothing but a sick hobby and the results show it. Nobody cares.

Your brutal post illustrates the depths to which Romney Republicanism leads.

In any case, some care. They’re quite pleased to actually have someone who represents them, someone who is actually a conservative, to vote for.

Your logic assumes the vote is Romney's to lose... That if Tom were not running, his voters would choose Romney instead.

I can speak to that personally. There is NO WAY AT ALL that I would EVER vote for that baby-butchering, gun-grabbing SOB. End of story.

Voting for a liberal to defeat a liberal is what defines 'moronic'. Liberalism will no doubt move forward. It is idiocy to assume otherwise.

And I will GLADLY vote for Tom Hoefling even if I am the only guy in MT to do so.

The Father commands us to do what is RIGHT, not to follow the crowd. And so does Conservative principle.

Tom, I'm writing in your name on my ballot. If the powers that be choose to not count it, that's their business.

My hat is off to you. Despite difficult circumstances, you have run a principled campaign and there are many, many people whose spirits have been lifted by your personal courage and dignity. Win or lose, you are a shining example of the better side of whatever democracy we still enjoy. If this country someday returns to sanity, it will be because of leaders like you. Thanks for everything that you've done.

I firmly believe that God shall have a hand in ths election and that His will shall soon be revealed. I will pray for the wisdom, strength and faith to accept God's will with whatever gratitude I can muster. Praise God.

And, I will know that I have not wasted my vote this year. Thanks again.

Eternal Vigilance/Tom Hoefling:

Still proud to vote for Tom Hoefling on 11/6. I despise Obozo. I feel very much the same as to Romney. After I vote for Tom Hoefling, I won't need a hot shower immediately like I would by voting for either major party candidate. If anyone does not like it, too bad. My vote is my vote and Tom, you have had that vote ever since the moderate mushballs bought the GOP nomination. I argued with you as because I supported McCain back in 2008. You were right then. I was wrong. Of course, you are right now.

I apparently have to write you in. Who is your running mate and what is the running mate's name as an approved write-in??? Voting for you will be the best vote I have cast in quite a while. God bless you and yours and each voter who votes for you.

M Nehring, remember your definition of "immaturity" as Romney steadily advances nationalized health care with tax-funded on-demand abortion; remember it as your guy Romney quietly and methodically enables government power grabs over every aspect of American productivity via global warming tyranny; think of it as you watch Romney's administration, with a majority coalition he'll have with Democrats and liberal Republicans, force YOU and YOUR SCHOOLS and ADOPTION AGENCIES and YOUR MILITARY to accept as "normal" the homosexual agenda and PUNISH YOU if you exercise your God-given right and freedom to reject open homosexuality in your workplace, church, military, schools, and community.

The ONLY HOPE America has is for the winner, be it Romney or Obama, to win on a plurality with the majority of American voters rejecting him. It is why I will be voting for Tom Hoekstra tomorrow -- not because I think he will win, but because I REMEMBER that voting for liberals ALWAYS has bad consequences. Sadly, far too many conservatives have conveniently forgotten that hard, cold truth and are eagerly kidding themselves that a "deal with devil" won't betray them.

Those of you voting for Romney will be voting for a liberal statist. You can rationalize it any way you want, but the fact remains that you will be voting FOR a liberal statist. You will reap what you sow.

I am voting to fire Obama and install a commander in chief that won’t leave out troops to die when attacked- Period.

Only one of two people will be the next President, Obama or Romney.

Anyone that tells you differently is living in narcissistic fantasy land and is only about stroking their own ego and pride.

They will do just as good to stay home or write in Mickey Mouse. The result would be the same. Hell, if you want to make a statement, just write in your own name. That way you can doubly stroke your own ego. You can gladly proclaim you are ‘not like those other guys, those sinners.’ And you can have the pride of knowing someone saw your name on a ballot for President.

Lodi, What name did I call you Romney voters? I didn't. You mistakenly think I did because you are emotional, and pure emotion -- fear, to be specific -- is driving your vote.

"Adults" like you will no doubt have fun dictating every aspect of health insurance/health care to individuals and employers, and if you think Romney won't be doing that, you will have a very rude surprise. You "adults" will have fun not "playing childish games" but instead trying to make excuses for a guy who you knew believes in global warming and who will easily ADVANCE its government tyranny because he'll have a majority coalition -- Democrats and liberal Republicans, and they will steamroll for at least four years any and all limited government oppositon.

Yes, you self-proclaimed sneering, condescending "adults" will be causing the GOP to be an agressive agent of government tyranny because YOU WILL BE VOTING FOR IT. You can rationalize it all you want, you can pretend all you want, you can stomp your feet all you want and you can deride and scorn all you want, but in the end, your vote for Romney will be a vote to make the GOP the party of Big Government Tyranny.

That is the cold, hard truth whether you're an "adult" or a child.

Me too, Black Elk. Correction to my post 43 -- not Hoekstra (!!!) but Tom Hoefling, will get my vote tomorrow. Not because I think he'll win, but because I KNOW that the best we can hope for now is for whichever government tyrant wins, Obama or Romney, to win with as little American support as possible and therefore to be DENIED a mandate.

God bless you, Tom, thank you for running, and thank you for standing up for calm, reasoned courage in the face of massive stampeding fear and panic that is fueling Romney's "support" and threatening to hand a popular mandate to a statist liberal and which in hindsight will be seen for the surrender it is.

My tagline is 100 percent accurate.

Panic and fear have made a lot of people forget that simple truth. But if Romney wins, especially if he wins in a landslide, they will remember it then with pain. And it will be too late because they will have succumbed to fear, having failed to remind themselves of an eternal truth: fear makes people do stupid things that they regret later.
