I've put some heavy wear and tear on my keyboard making the point here that it's OK to loathe Romney, but to underestimate him is the act of a fool.
Those of us who have been on the "no Romney, no how!!" bandwagon here for the last year have had the luxury of believing that someone else would be able to keep Romney from the nomination.
That now appears increasingly unlikely, as we all are forced to face the fact that Freepers (and those out there who think like Freepers) are not a decisive majority in the Republican electorate. Not even close.
There are millions of long-time Republicans who are voting for Romney because he's a dignified, executive-looking gentleman who speaks in soothing patriotic platitudes. You don't have to like this, but it's true. (And no, they are not being operated by mind control rays from Karl Rove!)
So where does this leave us? Frankly I dunno. I would hope that those who advocate holding noses and voting for Romney don't get banned from FR. At the same time, I think it's very unlikely that I will vote for him. (I voted third party in 2008 in preference to McQueeg).
The cancer of Obamacare now extends to choosing a Public health expert for the World Bank Presidency.
The major problem with THE NINE SUPREMES is that they are chosen for political reasons by the POTUS, and then they vote as an un-accountable democracy, for a Nation that is NOT a Democracy, but a REPUBLIC.
As a result, THE NINE SUPREMES commonly vote 5 to 4 on most issues. Constitutionality is seldom a consideration, and their up-coming ruling on Obamacare will prove my point.
Now is the time to stand and deliver to address our grievances to the dictates of the Left.
Oppose the dictates of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack!
Our ONLY chance to ABOLISH Obamacare rests with THE NINE SUPREMES, because Romney will be defeated by Obama.
IMHO, if Romney is anointed as the RNC Nominee, THE main issue in the National Election, Obamacare, will be taken off the campaign table. Hence, Romney will not only lose, but suffer another crushing, and sadly typical, RINO defeat.
To those who want poster ideas, here are a few ideas for demonstration posters:
Obamacare was robo-signed by Congress, and is therefore illegal.
Obamacare was 2700 pages long, and is still being written, but not by Congress: witness the forced contraception coverage recently added by HHS Regulators.
Obamacare has caused The Catholic Spring.
Obamacare reduces competition, and therefore is illegal by the 1890 Sherman Anti-Trust Law.
Obamacare is designed to be a US Federal Government monopoly, with no competition.
Obamacare also is illegal according to the US Constitution, because it violates our freedom of choice.
Will THE NINE SUPREMES notice any of these three violations? I seriously doubt it.
Impeached Bill Clinton proved that the US President is above US Federal Law, so anything that the President wants he gets, regardless of the Federal Laws that he has violated.
It leaves me voting Constitution Party.
We were played.
First we were played on the subject of Rick Perry (Guardisil! Guardisil! OMG! Guardisil!), then we were played on the subject of Newt Gingrich (pre-Florida there was an anti-Newt tsunami here on FR).
We are conservatives and we are stupid.
Sadly, you’re right.
I won’t be voting if he’s the nominee.
Who is running for the Constitution party?
I haven't decided who I am voting for yet, I just know it won't be for Mitt or 0bama.
If Romney wins the nomination or the SCOTUS sides with Obama on health care, I’ll probably disappear from the internet.
I don't see myself voting for Romney (ESPECIALLY after the Etch-a-sketch comment), even if that means we lose and get stuck with Zero again. I'll write in Newt or Santourm.
How's that holding your nose when you pull the lever been working for you?
If Mitt is nominated, this would be the 1st election I will vote for a write in my candidate. I predict this year that the write in names on the Presidential list will be historical.
There is always FR’s own Tom Hoefling for President.
“It’s going to get interesting at FR if Romney is nominated, innit??”
I guess that’s one of the small benefits of living in “Blue” Jersey. I can vote third party or write-in and my conscience and principles will remain intact, while having absolutely no impact on the final outcome.
So if we can't root for 1 over 2, 3 and 4, then we'll root for 2 over 3 and 4.
Don’t know. Don’t care. I won’t vote for Mittens, ever.
I admire people with principles, but in this case I cannot fathom how anyone could justify handing the presidency over to Satan/Obama for another four years - period.
lol Ain’t that the truth.
I expect Romney will get nominated. I will also not vote for him under ANY circumstances. It takes nothing but cowardice and lemming mentality to “hold one’s nose” and vote for the enemy in our camp. I will not do it. Ever.
I will not vote for either BHO, the white one or the half white one.
I will vote the rest of the ballot, and write a conservative in the slot called president.
