“....Romney wins the GOP nomination, does that mean FR will be shut down?”
I really wouldn’t worry about that. If Romney couldn’t win last time I don’t see how he wins this time, other than being “next!”
In prior years being “next” might have done it but not this time. (I hope, anyway.)
Plus, let us not forget WHY he didn’t win last time, the Evangelicals hate him. I’m not qualified to discuss why they hate him, but they do, they won’t vote for him and you can’t win the Republican nomination without at least a whole bunch of those voters.
In a way it is too bad, I think Romney would have been a better candidate than McCain and undoubtedly a much better pres than Obama, maybe esp. in these bad economic times.
However, we would never have had this conservative/tea party resurgence without the axis of dem evil: Obama/Pelosi/Reid, so that is the sterling silver lining to the cloud of their reign. (LOL, homophonic pun right there!)
I see Romney, like Giuliani, as a man whose time has come and gone.
“Evangelicals hate him. Im not qualified to discuss why they hate him,”
Not so much “hate”, but more “mistrust”. Basically, it’s ‘cause his “religion” is a cult. Men can become God; God was a man. Christ isn’t a Diety. Book Of Mormon has more authority than the Bible. They deny the Trinity. They deny a literal Hell. They believe there are many gods. They baptize the dead. They believe that Jesus and Satan were brothers. They believe in salvation by good works and deeds. The status of women is monumentally misogynistic (Google “licked cupcakes”). That’s the tip of the iceberg.
Evangelicals would rather have America led by Christians, as it was when established in the 1700s.
