“Whatever are you going to do when your candidates are out?”
I will answer by using JR’s post 263 from the link below.
“Uh, this is Free Republic. We advocate for conservatives/conservatism not RINOS/liberalism. We will continue to advocate for life, family, liberty, national security, individual freedom, limited government, low taxes, originalist judges and the constitution, etc, regardless of who wins the current election. You can shove your dose of RINO reality where the sun dont shine. Im sure itll do wonders for you.”
Right on brother, right on.
Oddly, that is exactly what I am advocating for in this election. And I am supporting a candidate who supports the right to life, opposes abortion, backs strong families, school choice, marriage between one man and one woman, liberty, the 2nd amendment as defender of that liberty, limited government, the Bush tax cuts, reigning in government spending, free trade, originalist judges, repeal of McCain Feingold, opposition to the Kilo ruling, strong national defense, increasing our military force, fighting radical islamists, winning the war in Iraq. If I didn't conclude by saying I support Mitt Romney, we would be in perfect agreement I believe on those principles I am pushing above. And It is clear that those are the exact things Romney is advocating for and running for office to implement. He COULD be lying, but I don't think so. But he is RUNNING on a strong conservative platform, and stands on the RIGHT side of the list you posted. His biggest weakness in his platform is his willingness to sign a limited AWB. But that is countered by a much stronger stand than the other conservative on the 1st amendment, specifically promising to work to repeal CFR. No candidate is perfect, but on the issues the candidates are espousing, Romney is solidly in the conservative camp. The reason he is opposed is matters of opinion on trust, not his platform. I understand that, and that is why I don't push to change minds here. I simply post the facts about his actual record and his positions, because I see people who have their marching orders and think that includes misleading to acheive their goals.
