Given the choice between 25% and ZERO, most serious, sane people will choose 25%.
If we cooperate with Romney, we will be fed nothing but Romneys in the future and only romneyites will be credentialed.
You are worried about 0% vs. 25% over the next four years. Some of us are concerned about 0% vs. 25%, 22.5%, 20% ... to about 10% or so over the next couple of generations, having no chance whatsoever to access either political party in any cycle.
Philadelphia used to be a Republican city. The last Republican made sure that not only would the Dems be in power forever, but that even if a Republican accidentally got elected he could be brought to heel tout suite. Romney is that kind of Republican.

Hey, you and I have achieved a breakthrough. You are more optimistic about Romney than I am if you think he might lead to even 10% of his appointees supporting western civilization, Judaeo-Christian civilization, common sense, etc.
I think that the late great Frank Rizzo should have been the last Republican mayor of Philthadelphia. He had been a Democrat (never a Demonrat) mayor, was forced out of the Democrat Party, ran and was nominated as a Republican in later years. He was very different from whoever was the last "Republican" before who would have been mayor in the 1950s and who was, likely, a liberal slimeball posing as a Republican. Rizzo was a Republican (national variety/Reaganite) in spirit all along. Running for re-election as a Democrat in 1975, Frank Rizzo promised that his second term would make Attila the Hun "look like a faggot."
God bless you and yours!
