No longer on the donation sideline
Legal Insurrection ^ | August 11, 2012 | Professor William A. Jacobson, esquire

Posted on 08/11/2012 8:52:17 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The choice of Paul Ryan, and the reaction, finally got me off the donation sideline.

I just donated to the Romney-Ryan campaign. And in case you were wondering, maxed out. For the first time in my adult life I was proud to do so.

It’s not just about Romney-Ryan, it’s about who we are up against:

Dirk@DirkZ1

#Teaparty forced @MittRomney to pick @RepPaulRyan and killed 2 birds with one stone for #Democrats. It cost #GOP the WH and the House #p2

The blaring intro music for Romney and Paul Ryan is f**king ridiculous. Baggers love that nonsense. #tcot #p2

You can DONATE HERE.

Update:This tweet was removed from the embed because, as pointed out in the comments, I apparently didn’t get that it was sarcastic. That happens sometimes, as we know. Scrolling through her tweets, she’s actually quite conservative and quite humorous, including this one:

Chelsea Grunwald@chelseagrunwald

Go back to what? 4% unemployment? An annual budget? AAA credit rating? Less debt? #CountMeIn RT @BarackObama: Romney-Ryan: The Go Back Team.

Didn’t you get the notice....the “purists” aren’t voting for Romney/Ryan.

I guess allowing barry in the white hut for the next 4 years will teach that GOP-e a lesson!

Unfortunately, there will be no America left for them to learn this lesson.

These purists are the least rational people I’ve ever come across. There will be no FR if Obamaa gets elected. He will have free reign to squash conservative internet presence like a bug.

I don't know about FR but he'll have the chance maybe to put another lib on SCOTUS.

I’m tired of lame BS shoved down my throat by the GOP elite. Ryan means nothing as VP means nothing. No money for GOP from me.

I don’t believe they are seeing the big picture here. They are mixing religion with politics; hence, bringing God into man’s world.

To me, that’s a big no no. I don’t know much about the Mormon religion, nor do I care.

They say the VP has no “power”. Yeah, hell will freeze over when Paul Ryan just stands there doing nothing.

I believe they only see for today, not the future. Look at all the states running Tea Party Conservatives against RINO incumbents....and winning!

Soooo....I guess that you're also condemning the owner of this site as one of those detestable "purists," eh?

Ryan is a good man, but does not redeem the abortionist/homosexualist statist Romney

It’s going to be hard enough to vote Republican this year. If we didn’t have such a hardcore marxist America-hating foreigner who could put 3-4 more justices on the court, I’d be sitting it out entirely.

VP doesn’t make up for P. Romney’s damn lucky he’s up against such an exponentially evil bastard.

Maybe Romney has had a conversion. It’s happened before;

Of course there will. Russia's Bolsheviks were only in power for 72 years, a blink of an eye in historical terms. So the next three generations will grow up as 21st century serfs. Big Deal. And what's a few famines and gulags among patriots? (Sarcasm alert)

I guess you’re against the 1st amendment as well.

You know, we give so much cr@p towards the left who follow orders from their supposed leaders.

Now YOU are expecting me to follow orders from our sites owner (even though he did not state his thread as an order?), even though I disagree with it?

I am a purist, I will vote for the scum Romney because I have to hold my nose in the hopes that he will turn out more conservative in the end. Ryan helps a little, but I don’t see Ryan as a huge conservative either.

I am giving money, just not to Romney, ... He should be able to beat Obama without spending a penny, the guys in the White house should have been impeached but the guys in Congress don’t have the nads, they are afraid of being called racist.

There are many good candidates that are worth paying attention to, we need to bring in the next crop of conservatives.

Hi NoGrayZone. I checked out your fR page, and you seem like a really good person, and a great freeper. I myself have been pretty upset with Romney sometimes, but yes we need to keep our eye and the real enemy, and realize that we’re all in the same boat and on the same team.

Finally! A Romney hater who is also a realist who is willing to fight to give this Nation at least a chance of slowing down the rush towards the abyss. I'm with you and will even dontae to Romney if it comes to that to keep him viable.

TO ALL WHO THREATEN TO SIT OUT THE VOTE THIS YEAR:

Better people than you fought and died to secure your right to vote for the person of your choice. Failing to exercise your civic responsibility is a slap in the face for all those who made the supreme sacrifice.

You and your buddy were running down us "purists," i.e. us Constitutional Conservatives who refuse to reward the crooked, corrupt GOP-E by holding our noses (once again) and voting for lesser evils. There's no walking that back now.

Don't hold your breath. Romney is not Reagan and has been caught in enough lies and flip-flops over the years on all the key Conservative issues that nothing he says can be believed.

You apparently haven't gotten the memo. As California governor, RR signed a bill allowing abortions in CA, he signed a "Tax increase to balance the budget", and he was a member of the GOPe. This makes him a "baby killing abortionist RINO tax and spender". No other position is tolerated.

Oh, thanks, how sweet! =).

Our ONLY option now is to get rid of the marxist in the white hut...along w/ his conspirators.

After 2010, we knew it would take several elections, perhaps a generation or 2 to get America back on track. Why some people are allowing their PRIDE to force them to not vote R&R is beyond me.

The lesson that the GOP will probably learn from your scenario, is that it needs to jettison purists once and for all.

A drowning man has no use for a life raft that only inflates if it likes the temperature of the water.

Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine; In memoria æterna erit justus, ab auditione mala non timebit.

If you can't rely on something at the precise moment that you need it the most, because that thing that you need to rely on is only reliable when the circumstances suit it, then get rid of it.

If the GOP realizes that "purists" will only supprt the GOP when the Party's candidates meet their test, then it may be best to not count on them at all.

Beauseant!

Soooooooooo...you’re saying Free Republic is not a free forum? That would be kinda ironic. I don’t think there is anyone here more conservative than I am. What’s the requirement for membership now? And why is voting to keep a Marxist out of office offensive?

Troll, you have been here less than a year. I’ve got more credence than you do and a heck of a lot more history.

And no, I am not voting for Romney. Once again, I am voting for the VP, just as I did w/ Sarah in 2008.

So please, go p!ss off. Enjoy your tattle telling to JR against fellow FReepers.

You have certainly NOT earned any rights here to yet hold ANY water.
