Posted on 04/05/2012 12:24:03 PM PDT by Mad Dawgg
OK, I've thought about it. I've read over and over here on Free Republic that if I don't vote for Romney. I am by default voting for Obama.
Now some of you are reading this and saying, wait-a-minute, Romney hasn't clinched it yet. Well its time to face facts, he is gonna be the G.O.P. nominee. The fat lady hasn't sung yet for the other Republican hopefuls Santorum and Gingrich. But if you listen closely you can hear her just off-stage doing some warmup scales.
So I guess if I must vote for Romney or forever be condemned as a FReeper who helped Obama to a second term. But I must tell ya, it feels like I am selling out. So since it feels that way I might as well go all-in.
That is why I have decided to run for office locally. Which means I need campaign cash. So all of you folks here on FR who are of the mind that a vote for anyone but Romney (when he becomes the G.O.P. nominee) is a vote for Obama think of me as a member of Congress and you are lobbying for my vote. And since we all know how lobbying works I will setup a campaign fund where you can deposit funds to help with my campaign and I will see what I can do about your concerns over who I am voting for in 2012.
Bottom line selling-out has become the American Way and since all you Vote-Romney-or-you-vote-for-Obama people condone such activity I asking you to put YOUR money where my vote is.
We can use this thread as a pledge drive. You post and pledge the amount you wish to deposit in my campaign fund and a "suggestion" of who I should vote for or for those of you who are against selling-out I am willing to listen to your reasoning as well.
Are you really that naive ?
Conservative judges like the Maucks killer got ?
Nothing radical about that. For those that insist on a Socialist like Willard, the reply is a simple one, “I don’t vote for liars.” Everything that comes out of his mouth when he’s campaigning (and even when he isn’t) is a lie. He isn’t mentally fit to hold office.
Willard buys endorsements. Follow the money.
You’re tired of voting against Barack Obama????
I feel sorry for you.
Your statement is illogical. If Romney adapted his positions to Mass., he must then adapt his positions to a republican Congress and a national electorate which are far more conservative.
Yeah, it’s necessary to wear our big boy pants sometimes. When Republicans win 49 states in a landslide, the one commie state they lose is Mass.
And politicians are whores. Period. Well ok some have some principles but, everyone here went for Newtie. How convenient to forget that more recently than Romney Newt was in trouble for trying to bring liberal issues into the republican party.
In fact, if this was the global warming thread (I’ve forgotten) it was Newt who sat with Pelosi to support cap and trade or some such left wing GW nonsense.
But I would have been happy as a clam to vote for Newt, Santorum, Palin, Cain - any of them, yes including Romney, against Obama.
“Willard buys endorsements.”
So then the whores I can’t vote for include Rubio, Nikki Haley, Barbour, Ryan, even Palin said anybody but Obama.
So every republican conservative must now be abandoned as a sell out liar?
Time to grow up kids.
If not and you still want me to sell-out then pony up some cash. Total amount needed for my election campaign is 20K. How much can I put your down for?
You are one brave soul to post that on FR. I’ve pretty much figured out it’s probably best to lurk until November and that my time is better spent bashing Hussein all over the rest of the internet when time permits.
Too many freepers are A-OK with 4 more years of Hussein, thankfully, that opinion is not widespread across the internet. Most are NOT thrilled with Romney, but they see what the alternative is.
I will do as Sarah said and vote for Anybody but Obama. The others can sit home and whine or write in a 3rd party, meaningless vote, then if Barry wins again, they can spend 4 more years aghast at how fast he takes this country down an irreversible path.
Back to lurking on FR when not exposing and bashing the Kenyan elsewhere.
Dude, or Dawg, you are not even planning on opposing Barack Hussein Obama and voting for the republican nominee while the nation hangs in the balance.
For the crime of not opposing Obama I would not donate one cent to your sorry campaign.
Oh and as for not citing one conservative thing Romney did as governor, choke hard on this. Sure he was too liberal but he still had some republican creds:
“Romney served as governor of Massachusetts (2003-2007), with a generally conservative record that included economic expansion. He balanced the budget every year of his administration with out increasing taxes or increasing state dept. Romney turned a $3 billion budget deficit into a $500 million surplus by reducing government spending and added 80,000 new jobs by the end of his term. In 2004, 2005, and 2006 Governor Romney proposed cutting the state income tax from 5.3% to 5.0% . Although the Democratic super majority in the state legislator refused to budge. Romney vetoed 844 pieces of legislation, with over 700 overridden.  He vetoed an increase in the minimum wage, saying “there’s no question raising the minimum wage excessively causes a loss of jobs.”  Under Governor Romney the state abolished a retroactive capital gains tax that would have forced nearly 50,000 taxpayers to pay additional taxes and fees.  Massachusetts Citizens For Limited Taxation Executive Director Barbara Anderson praised Romney, saying “There was no one else out on the horizon and with the legislature almost entirely Democratic, we felt it was necessary to have a grown-up in the corner office. And we were right to back him. He’s been a really good friend to the taxpayers.”
However, some of the actions Governor Romney took received criticisms from conservatives, such as supporting moderate fee increases and creating and the nation’s first universal health care program. During his 2002 gubernatorial campaign Romney supported abortion, his views evolved and would later take pro-life positions such as vetoing emergency contraception and vetoing stem-cell research that would allow cloning of human embryos. In 2006, Governor Romney testified before the United States Senate to support the Federal Marriage Amendment, which would limit marriage to one man and one woman. Additionally, Romney filed legislation to reinstate capital punishment, but was defeated in the Massachusetts House of Representatives on a 99-53 vote.
Mitt Romney made no pardons as governor, “My conclusion was, if somebody has been convicted by a jury of their peers, and theyve been prosecuted and the police were able to get the evidence necessary to put them behind bars, why in the world would I step in and reverse that sentence?” 
On Education Romney called for the privatization of the University of Massachusetts medical school. In 2004, he established the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship Program, which rewarded the top 25 percent of Massachusetts high school students with tuition-free scholarship to any Massachusetts public university or college. In August 2006, Governor Romney refused to allow former Iranian President Mohammed Khatami, an outspoken opponent of the United States and Israel, state police escorts during his speech at Harvard University. 
In December 2006, Romney signed a memorandum of agreement with the federal government that would allow state troopers to enforce federal immigration laws , however was revoked when Democrat Deval Patrict took office as Governor in January 2007.”
And if you agree then you have won and the only difference between you and I then is it took 500 Bucks for me to sell-out and you went for free.
How can you have been on this website for almost 15 years and feel so free and easy pimping Socialists and pathological liars like Willard ?
Check out this poster’s malarkey in #61 and elsewhere. Grab the hip boots, kids. It’s chin deep.
If a Romney Republican told me the sky was blue, I would go check. And if, surprisingly, it turned out it was blue I would still figure they were telling the truth in service of some other lie.
Wrote a post then backspaced and deleted it. I will just say this... I don’t think he’s pimping Mittens, I think he realizes what the alternative is.
It must be sad for you to settle for a RINO everytime and expect a different outcome. Sadder still that the RINO you are eager to settle for this time is probably to the left of the one you settled for the last time.
The posts speak for themselves. So does Willard’s record, which lay to rest any fantasies that he’ll be “better” than the execrable dictator currently occupying the WH.
I’m bowled over by your counter-argument, Mo.
Brilliant, wasn’t it?
I agree and have decided to mostly lurk on FR until after the elections. The pro_obama crap on here is sickening to me. I feel my time can be spent more wisely elsewhere by exposing and bashing obama on forums where it will matter.
GTH and feel free to check my past posts since the day I joined FR and find one that makes you think I’m a lefty or a supporter of Mitt Romney. I voted for Newt. YOU are in the minority, like it or not. Almost NOBODY is thrilled with Romney but most have the intelligence to know what the alternative is.
I pray he self implodes and somehow Newt or someone else is the nominee, but it’s not likely. Nothing is going to change your mind and nothing is going to change my mind. I spent 3 years supporting Sarah. Mark my words, she will get behind whoever the nominee is and say ANYBODY BUT OBAMA. She’s already said that several times.
But I guess she’s a RINO too now. Get real. This discussion is over with you. You will vote for Obama or give him your vote, same thing. I will vote for the one with an R beside their name which will cancel out an O vote. In the end, it probably won’t matter unless it’s a landslide. This election will be stolen via voter fraud.
I’m sure Rubio or Allen West aren’t good enough for you as VP either.
Why was my post #74 removed ?
I would appreciate the restoration of my post #74. This FReeper chose - WITHOUT my consent - to respond privately. I have asked posters repeatedly NOT to reply to me in private unless I consent to it. This FReeper chose to do so when I have asked to have the discussion out in the open to avoid any private insults/flaming, for which apparently he has no problem engaging in publicly.
"GTH and feel free to check my past posts"
Which one ? You want me to go to hell or check your posts ? I'm not interested in wasting my time with bloaviating baboons thumping their chest in an internet pissing contest.
"since the day I joined FR and find one that makes you think Im a lefty or a supporter of Mitt Romney."
All I've seen from you is apologia for Slick Willard and attacks by you on me for not supporting him. You're angry at me solely because I won't vote for a lying, megalomaniacal Socialist fraud like Willard. Well, pal, that shows what YOUR agenda is. I ain't going around berating and insulting others for NOT supporting him. You are.
"I voted for Newt. YOU are in the minority, like it or not."
Minority of what ? Last I checked, it's Willard who can't muster a majority of Republican voters in the primaries so far. In that post you had nuked, because you didn't have the guts to keep this discussion public, for which I have, I stated that Willard cannot hope to win when he has alienated a core group of Conservative voters. You alienate Conservatives in a close election for a Republican, you lose.
"Almost NOBODY is thrilled with Romney but most have the intelligence to know what the alternative is."
You seem absolutely ecstatic. How else to explain your going on a bender against those who refuse this FALSE set of choices.
"I pray he self implodes and somehow Newt or someone else is the nominee, but its not likely. Nothing is going to change your mind and nothing is going to change my mind."
There, you actually said something truthful.
"I spent 3 years supporting Sarah."
I've known about her and supported her for higher office since she was Mayor of Wasilla (on FR). Long time before you came here.
"Mark my words, she will get behind whoever the nominee is and say ANYBODY BUT OBAMA. Shes already said that several times."
She's a prominent Republican who will HAVE to say that in order to keep herself viable for a future race. She still knows what a loser he is and that he's been backstabbing her for years. His people were behind her sabotage from the moment McCain chose her. They were the same folks responsible for that HBO garbage/hit attack on her. But, hey, you keep on pimping the guy who backstabbed her.
"But I guess shes a RINO too now. Get real. This discussion is over with you."
Discussion over ? For somebody who keeps saying that, you keep on stalking me and lying about me.
"You will vote for Obama or give him your vote, same thing."
I will neither vote for a Communist nor for your Socialist RINO fraud. Get that through your thick skull.
"I will vote for the one with an R beside their name which will cancel out an O vote."
And it doesn't matter to you that the "R" might be a Socialist Trojan Horse for the Democrats. Way to go. You want to be commended for such courage ?
"In the end, it probably wont matter unless its a landslide. This election will be stolen via voter fraud."
Yes. It's already been stolen by the RINO political establishment who can't stomach anyone other than one of the worst Governors in modern times in the United States be their nominee. Fraud, indeed.
"Im sure Rubio or Allen West arent good enough for you as VP either."
Doesn't matter who the Socialist picks for his running mate.
Hey n00b, you don’t even know that people don’t have to ask permission to send someone a freepmail? Even a n00b should know you aren’t allowed to post FReepmails on the forum. If you find them offensive or harassing send them to JR or a mod. Stop lying, you never said don’t freepmail me until I did. Stop whining, obey FR rules and enjoy Easter Sunday.
We are done. I only responded again because I just saw this post and your lie.
You just can't quit me. Speaking of liars...
