Heroes and zeroes and Zots

Posted on 07/12/2014 7:49:29 PM PDT by burgereater

The heroes and zeroes of the presidential elections I've voted in.

Heroes: Reagan, Bush Sr, Dole, Bush Jr, McCain, Romney

Zeroes: Carter, Mondale, Dukakis, Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Obama

The pattern is obvious! Hoping and praying that it goes republican in 2016. I've not just voted for but campaigned for every hero on the entire list!

You're kidding, right?

Those aren't heros, unless you have no conservative standards at all.

"The pattern is obvious"

Yes, the quality of the GOP candidates has worsened with every cycle after 1984. From great, to mediocre, to indistinguishable from the rodents (lying, malignant narcissists with impeccable leftist credentials).

It depends on how you define "hero." If used in the traditional sense of military hero, certainly G. H. W. Bush, Dole, and McCain are heroes.

They aren't heroes in a political sense, as being consistent leaders of the conservative cause, although each was right on some issues and not nearly as bad as their Democratic counterpart. The first Bush, for example, selected Clarence Thomas for the Supreme Court. We might not have had 9/11 if Dole had been President instead of Clinton from 1997 to 2001, and we wouldn't have Obamacare if McCain had won in 2008. Even our duds are much better than the alternatives.

An “R” behind the name doesn’t automatically make the person the good guy. The GOP is largely as traitorous as the Democrats.

I have friends who refuse to see that there’s a huge difference between Republicans and conservatives.

As for Romney, he’s a hero only to those who share his love of abortion and queers.

How is this not a GOP site?

Quoting this paragraph from the founder I agree entirely! I have spent decades advocating for these things.

“As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc. We also oppose the United Nations or any other world government body that may attempt to impose its will or rule over our sovereign nation and sovereign people. We believe in defending our borders, our constitution and our national sovereignty.”

I’m not kidding. I’m totally with the GOP! I’m totally against the democrats!

Reagan against Carter
Reagan against Mondale
Bush Sr against Dukakis
Bush Sr against Clinton
Dole against Clinton
Bush Jr against Gore
Bush Jr against Kerry
McCain against Obama
Romney against Obama

I vigorously campaigned for the republican against the democrat every time! I don’t always get my first choice in the primary but in the general I always campaign for the winner of the GOP primary.

In 2016 I’d prefer a Ted Cruz over a Chris Christie in the primary. That said I will vigorously campaign for the GOP nominee no mater who it is.

If you were serious, and had been paying attention, you would have known that the GOP is backing away from being a Pro-life, pro-family party and has never been a pro-limited government party except for during Reagan's time.

Furthermore, you would have known that the GOP is not against homosexualism or defending our borders either.

As proof, I offer you one of your "heroes", Mitt Romney. 1. After he had gained the nomination, Mitt Romney came out in support of Abortion in the cases of Rape, Incest, Life, AND HEALTH of the mother on August 27th, 2012.
2.Mitt Romney also supported Homos in the military, Homos in the Boy Scouts, and Homo Adoption.
3. Mitt Romney didn't/doesn't even know what the term limited-government means judging by his RomneyCare, a Big Government takeover that is nothing but Socialized Medicine.
4. Mitt Romney just came out in support of Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

McCain, Dole, and Bush Sr. were just as bad on the issues.

Wake-up newbie!

"In a general election it’s R vs D and I will take the R every time! There is no comparison."

Then you're part of the problem.

I think you should have spent more time reading here before you decided to sign up and post a vanity, because you don't have a firm grasp on what the site is about.

The majority of the GOP is filled with statists who support leftwing policies such as immigration reform. Many of them condone queer marriage. Why would you vote for any of that just because the letter after the name isn't a D? Might as well be.

I've been here for three years and haven't posted a vanity yet. I have no plans to do so.

You might be really impressed with what you have to say, but you could have posted in an ongoing thread...after familiarizing yourself with FR's opinion on vanities.

I did not vote for Romney in the primary but when it became apparent that he’d win the primary I vigorously campaigned for him against Obama.

I too have quibbles about Romney but look at his opponent! Obama. There is no comparison.

The GOP is far better than the democrats on every single issue and I will continue to support the GOP.

I wish we could have a Reagan every time but we haven’t been quite so fortunate. I did not vote for McCain or Romney in the primaries but they won anyway. They are no Reagan but compare them to Obama! Look what Obama has done to our nation. It isn’t pretty. It’s downright ugly. There is absolutely no way McCain or Romney or any GOP member could possibly be as bad as Obama. No way!

I vote for the best candidate available. I like Ted Cruz in 2016 and he gets my vote if he runs!

Again. Compare them to the alternative. Obama.

What if we end up with Christie vs Hillary in 2016? You can bet I will vigorously campaign for Christie in the general. I’d prefer Ted Cruz of course but we might or might not get Ted Cruz.

So you'll campaign for a gun-grabbing, Muslim and queer loving Democrat (Christie). See, that's bad.

The fact that you prefer Cruz tells me there might be some hope. I'd suggest some deep reflection on the contrast between his positions and the rest of the GOP.

The GOP is far better than the democrats on every single issue and I will continue to support the GOP.

You, with your support of a low-life "Republican" who supports both the murder of unborn babies and the Homo-Agenda will be responsible for the death of the GOP as a result.

The GOP will continue its drift to the left, while the Democrats do as well, and pretty soon you will be supporting a party that looks no different from the Democrats of today.

Romney destroyed the MA GOP because of his Progressive Liberal policies. The National GOP is headed to the same destruction because it continues to walk away from conservative principles.

Just remember, a thing less evil, is still evil.

"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

The pro-GOP trolls are starting early. They know they have angered the base, and they think it's going to take extra-browbeating to win us over.

I'm not seeing their standard sales technique (abuse, namecalling) as going to work this time.
