I do love this site. I'm not old and I'm not young. The information and educated posters on Free Republic are a true gift, as far as I'm concerned. When I hear about something in the news... often I come here to get the "take" by Free Republic's fantastic commenters and I really learn a great deal.

Of course, there's another side to that. Sometimes posts here are somewhat extreme, but the moderators seem to do a good job taking care of those.

My preferred candidate in this election was Herman Cain. Imagine my chagrin as I basically found out he's a serial ... well, douche and philanderer.

I still think he's brilliant.

Conservatives really didn't have a dog in the race. I think that many prospective candidates didn't bother because they felt Obama would be unbeatable and they didn't want the media proctology exam that they would be subject to.

I didn't post much, but I watched as people here tore each other a new one over things that they shouldn't have. The difference between Bachmann and Santorum wasn't that much, but freepers got in fights about it.

The Paulbots are a different breed, but Paul (aside from being like Jeff Dunham's Norman puppet) has some good ideas.

It seemed, though, that people here just got MAD.

I understand. Obama...to put it nicely... is a turd with sharp cutting edges.

We all know what he is and what we are facing... but it turned around in 2010 and it did so because Tea Partiers and conservatives made their voices heard. Some democrats JOINED us.

I think those people are still out there. That's what Mitt has to fear. He needs to assure voters that he supports conservative fiscal ideals.

But Mitt will also win over some middle and middle left people.

It's a shame that people will be ripping each other apart over this. Honestly...we can't do that anymore. It's over. It is time for the 11th commandment.

WE CANNOT SURVIVE FOUR MORE YEARS OF an OBAMA THAT FEARS NOTHING.

A man that fabricated his book. A man that has STOLEN VALOR from the Navy Seals for the sake of his campaign.

So...we all contact Romney and make our expectations known and we fight for conservative Congressmen/women and Senators where we are.

Hopefully, Free Republic becomes a place, again, where everyone can speak their mind and not be jumped on for recognizing the reality that Romney is going to be the nominee.

I honestly love this place and the people I have become close to.

Let's roll.

I agree with your observations regarding the tone of many posts. And I also was a Herman Cain supporter. But I won’t vote for Romney.

I’ve decided to take the following approach with those who tell me that letting an unrestrained marxist win is better for my country than a Romney win, to laugh to myself and remember there are also folks who say some of the most vile things on youtube when a video of puppies appear.

Romney is either a conservative or not. Nothing in Romney's past shows that those middle/middle left voters will be disappointed in him. Conservatives, on the other hand, will be proved to be fools once again.

In total agreement with this.....and am truly afraid of an “OBAMA THAT FEARS NOTHING” future. The extreme positions and unfortunate attacks upon anyone having a different opinion has made FR a somewhat fearful place to say anything. We need to unite and not divide...there’s simply only one goal left and that is to get rid of Obama. Period. It sickens me to know that so many valuable votes to achieve this goal might not be cast, as evidenced by the comments on FR. What then?

Obama's little buddy Axelrod spent most of last Fall rustling up disgruntled nutcase women and prostitutes to say something bad about Herman Caine.

That was Axelrod who spent all the time hanging around the hood ~ and he didn't even get good ones ~ mostly nut cases.

The MSM is no longer able to tell the difference ~ they've retired all their competent reporters and are now reduced to the dregs.

I did track down where one of those women lived ~ the one working for the US government who'd been Bill Clinton's spokesperson in the Elian kidnapping ~ she actually bought her house in her kid's name so she could "hide" somehow from her enemies.

Didn't work. Found her anyway. Herman never hid behind a child. She helped kidnapped one and hid behind another.

If Herman needed an enemy to demonstrate his fundamental political and moral integrity that one was it.

No offense meant to you, for I believe you are well intentioned (by the way, it’s $25, NOT 25$....such things bug the hell out of me).

Vote for whoever the hell you WANT to vote for, people. Vote Romney. Vote the a**hole Obama, if you’re stupid enough. It’s YOUR vote.

I’m sick of these threads already.

But will you work for, donating time,talent and treasure to electing conservative candidates from the local assessor on up is the question of the day. I think all of us that may not support Romney can still agree it is time to turn the guns to Barack and his merry band of progressives. Figuratively speaking of course, with all the targeting sights for battle states added solely for visual aid.

Unless your a plant on this web site I must say your comment must be discussed.
I have been following the career both politically and privately of Newt Gingrich since I first noticed his ideology and heard him speak in congress during the 70’s on through. He was and still is my first preference, notice the word “preference” in this campaign. My support of Herman Cain was just as strong. I donated to both of them. To me Rich Santorum and Ron Paul just wouldn't be elected.
Now, I'm from Massachusetts, I lived under Mitt Romney's governorship for four years. His economic record here could be deemed a wild success considering the legislators he had to deal with. 80% Dumbocrats.
My point is, there is a process that selects our candidate for President and Mitt is in the lead and looks like he will win. I don't understand your reasoning for not voting for him. The alternative is disaster and will make your life miserable for a lot longer than the four years of his term. The most important thing to consider in this election is JOBS and how they will be created. The jobs Obama creates are mythical. If every week for 3 years we have three to four time unemployment sign ups vs jobs created, how can the unemployment rate go down. A total myth. So, please don't give Obama a second term by not voting. Consider your vote for Romney a vote against Obama instead of one for Romney and you'll feel better. Amen.

Like writing your congressman?

You need to pay closer attention Julia.

The American people have made their expectations known for many years, regarding much smaller government, secured borders, end subsiding millions of illegals, less taxes, less controlling, intrusive government etc.

We got none of that Julie. Just the opposite in fact.

I'm on board with what you're saying, WJ. As long as Romney continues to run as something of a fiscal/social conservative (against Obamacare, abortion, and same-sex marriage), if he can reassure us of that, he will have my vote. Even though I don't fully trust him, I expect him to be much better than Obama.

And I have not been happy to see so many longtime conservative FReepers get run off or leave, when they were clearly not DU-type disruptor trolls. In most cases it was a difference in strategy, not philosophy, that led to the departure. The FRiendly atmosphere here has deteriorated over the past months. I'm glad there's a truce now, and I hope some of our old FRiends can be welcomed back.

we have only ourselves to blame. we allowed Romney to split the conservative vote. Now we have to deal with it. So, as much as I hate Romney, I remain comitted to eliminating the democratic infestation in congress and the whitehouse and that means I have to vote for him. I doubt that I will ever like the guy but, to be honest, I haven’t liked a US President since Reagan.

To: Charles Henrickson; All

Thank you Charles... you are one of the people I have read here for wisdom, because I KNOW that I don’t have it all myself.

I’m well-versed in things. I spent some time in DC. My father worked for the Reagan Administration. I spent time as a teen overseas when my dad was working for the Reagan administration. I’ve always had an idea of politics and geopolitics.

It’s because I know geo-politics that I am most scared of this administration. Reagan had balls of steel. Obama had his balls stolen by some white chick when he was in college and she confronted him about black anger.

And if FREEPERS want to jump me ... again.. go to the donor’s wall.

I gave $20. (there was no $25 box to check)

And it’s lean times for me.
