You want a reason? Just a moment ago on radio. I heard a quote from Romney that he will NOT cut a trillion dollar from the government because we can not afford to take a trillion out of the economy! Romney is a LEFTIST! What are we fighting against if only to elect the very same guy who embrass the ideology that we reject

"These followers lose awareness of the world around them"

That alone describes Obamabots, so I'll buy it.

I will bet that when all is actually known about Obama (as in just before the election) you will not be able to bring yourself to make such a horrid choice. (But good luck with it anyway)

“Yup...so far...Virgil Goode is who I’m votin’ for (CP = Constitution Party)”

Either Romney or Obama will be President next year. Not voting for Romney is supporting Obama. Why not just go all in and vote for Obama?

FR is full of crazy people lately. The posts and comments have been falling in quality and intelligence for well over 6 months now. I don’t think there’s many sane ones left anymore.

AMEN TO THAT! Loads of loonies coming out of the woodwork.

No, it's not. Regardless of how many times you say it.

I can't vote for a pro-abortion, anti-gun, big-government, socialized medicine liberal.

And that includes Romney and Obama.

Always with namecalling.

Do you think name calling is going to make any conservative vote for a pro-abortion, anti-gun, big-government liberal?

I for one can't stand RINO-Boy romney but will again hold my nose and reluctantly go to the polls. I hate it that the GOP establishment types hate us conservatives. I wish they would just join the independents and let us have our party back. I would hope everyone one here will stop funding the RNC and will start funding the conservative candidates with direct contributions. I for one have given them my opinion about this every time they called with their hand out. I point blank tell them that I do not support RINOs and will send my support directly to the conservative candidates.

Nice try. Four years of Romney? The GOP-e chosen one? Romney who has been appointed in an election against the weakest incumbent since Carter? If you think you can "primary" a sitting President, you are far more deluded than those you mock.

Either Romney or Obama will be President next year.

Well...what if the polls told me/us by late October...
...after the MSM gets done with the most saturated candidate "vet" in history...
...(including all about Mormonism's racism, Mormonism's necro-dunking, how Romney was spirit-born on another planet (Kolob) -- technically making him an "alien," how Romney as a temple Mormon is a "god-in-embryo" on his way to full grown-up "godhood" of his own planet, and how his voters are endorsing/elevating idolatry by ramping up a competitor to THE god, etc)...
...that the scenario you just presented had been reduced to only Obama [providing the economy doesn't tank significantly even more]...???

IOW...what if the Fall polls clearly show Romney below 40%...Obama above 40%...and more importantly, Romney badly losing in states once thought to be key vital "swing states"????

My Q THEN -- back to you would be: Why would any conservative vote for an obvious losing cause @ that point?

You've just told me not to waste my vote on a runner-up.
So you would swallow your own advice then?

If the polls solidly indicate that Romney won't win -- as of late October -- that Q boomerangs back your way: Why waste your vote on a runner-up? (It's not 'horseracing' ya know...where they pay out for the runner-up)

Not voting for Romney is supporting Obama.

No, it's not. You have a name of "Lodi." Let me assume for the moment, you live in CA [given that there's a Lodi, CA]

No matter how many FREEPERS & how many conservatives vote for Romney in CA, Obama is still going to carry that state! That's a fact!

Your state (if you're a Californian) is just too liberal. Orange Co., San Diego Co., the Central Valley (home of JimRob) ain't enough to overcome LA, the Bay Area, liberal NorCal, etc.

Your vote for Romney really "won't count" in CA!

See, that's what gets me. We have so many FREEPERs-turned-relativists via this utilitarian political pragmatic ethic of beating Obama. Yet when I turn that same utilitarian political pragmatic ethic back on FR voters who live in liberal states, all of a sudden that ethic doesn't apply. Why?

There is ZERO reason to vote for Romney in a liberal state! Obama will pragmatically win in those states, anyway; ya might as well both...
...save searing of your conscience & setting a precedent of voting for a liberal POTUS...
...+ send a message to the GoP-establishment.

The October polls will also disclose which states Romney would have easily "locked up." Once those states are established, FREEPERs can also be "released" to vote for neither Obama or Romney. Why? Because if we added up ALL of the FREEPERs in those states...and if they 100% voted third-party, guess what? Romney will readily win those states, anyway. [There wouldn't be enough FREEPERs in those states to undercut Romney]

Do you see how that utilitarian political pragmatic ethic cuts both ways?

The only true FREEPERs who have a "voting dilemma" before them are the true "swing" state voters...and even those states are not simply the ones the MSM has designated now -- but those states that will be "too close to call" polling-wise come late Oct/early Nov.

Every other FREEPER -- per the same utilitarian political pragmatic ethic preached @ us third-party people - has ZERO excuse for voting for a pro-abort, big-govt, socialistic healthcare pioneer.

GOP. After Romney loses (and he will lose), even the party elites will see that it will be necessary to unite the party around a more conservative platform. Particularly if Romney gets really stomped, the need for change will become clear.

You should do what you think is best. And if that means voting for obama to stay true to your principles and values, then so be it.

I could NEVER knowingly vote for a socialist/progressive/liberal, so that makes it tougher to find a candidate to vote for, but I will say one thing good about the obama Presidency.

No one has done more to motivate Americans to re-discover our Constitution and founding principles and values like obama has.

obama has basically said to Americans, "Stand up or shut up and bend over."

Essentially, by doing so, he gave us the TEA party and made us see what is important.

McCain would have given us every bit of the progressives' poison, but a spoonful at a time instead of forcing the whole bottle full down our throats like obama has.

obama is the worst president in US history...and may be the best thing that's ever happened to us...assuming we survive him and the world full of insanity that voted for him.

Nope, the loonies are the fools who believe that voting for Mitt will somehow save our Republic.

The loonies mittbots can't understand that some of us have PRINCIPLES that will not be compromised.

Mitt's actual record is one of someone who worships at the Alter of State Power.

Mitt's DNA is wired to always push to expand the power of the State over the Individual.

As a Conservative, I will not cast a vote for such a vile man. I will do a write-in and vote Conservative down the ticket.

The real loonies are the mitt-bots who think "Mitt's a Republican, he must be better!"

Wrong! The GOP-e, Mitt and his evil supporters have won. They have guaranteed that the end-game will be EXACTLY the same as the end-game of the RATS. I will always fight for Liberty. I will never vote for a Statist.

Wow! Nice cop-out... The third-party people have had exactly four weeks -- less than a month -- to react to Santorum dropping out (& less than that re: Gingrich)... Plus Romney hasn't even been nominated yet...

So here...(r) primary voters had, by comparison, 12+ to almost 17 months to decide who they were voting for...and you're impatient for the third-party people who've had less-than-a-month to react & unite???

Truly pathetic.

That, is truly a masterpiece. Well done.

.For best effect, one really needs to read it a few times, and do a little ruminating on it.
