Open letter to the RNC and RNC Consultants (like Rove)
Vanity - Veritas2002 | 01-26-12 | Vanity

Posted on 01/26/2012 3:00:25 AM PST by veritas2002

Here's what it comes down to:

I am a lifelong Republican which means that I have never voted for a Democrat in my life and never will. That means for every single election at every level for 45 years I have pulled the lever for Republicans.

This year is my final year voting Republican if Romney gets the nomination. I simply WILL NOT VOTE.

I am sick and tired of having my candidates (like McCain) chosen for me by the main stream, Obama-protecting liberal media and the Republican establishment. I WILL NOT VOTE FOR ROMNEY.

I cannot see how a candidate who won the gubernatorial seat in Socialist Massachusetts can run as a conservative Republican presidential candidate. Something does not compute. But I have it figured out: Romney is no conservative.

Let me say this: if I am of the mind that if Romney gets the Republican nod I WILL NOT VOTE, then you can be sure that there will be many, many others who think similarly.

No, this Tea Party-supporting Republican WILL NOT VOTE FOR ROMNEY. I will sit it out - even if it means another four years of that creep socialist OBAMA. I am tired of capitulating to the powers in Washington - whether they be Democrat or Republican.

I hope they read your letter.

I will not be voting for Romney either.

I am sooo tired of being used by the party.

When the bailouts were going down, it was nearly impossible to get the congressional officials to even take our calls.

I figure the professional political class and its hired help (staff, basically) is agnostic on which party label they bear. What matters to each, individually, is they obtain office. We see a small number who switch parties - not because of ideological epiphany, but simply to hold the office.

So, I don't think a massive outpouring of "No" to the GOP will change the behavior of the party - if a party can have behavior. As the party collapses for want of public support, the more liberal members, like the Republican Main Street folks, will simply join the DEM party.

There are very few in the GOP leadership and elected class who put ideology above personal fortune; and I figure fewer still who care about the fortune of the GOP becoming or staying a majority party; especially if a principle of the party is to actually reduce the power of the federal government.

I’d like to offer a suggestion for a modification to your plan.

Vote for all the downstream races, even though you won’t be voting for Presidential Electors.

Neither the RNC, Rove, nor pretend Conservatives like on Fox News, speak for me. I will not under any circumstances whatsoever vote for Romney. I will vote but I will vote for an Independent Party aligned with true Constitutional Conservatism in his place.

“WILL NOT VOTE”

That is not an option. If nothing else, we need to take the Senate. Vote. Leave POTUS blank if you must, but don’t cut off your nose to spite your face.

-- if you don't vote, then the american experiment is over --

The experiment is over already, vote or not. The federal government is probably a hundred or a thousand times bigger than it was designed to be; universal suffrage and entitlements have warped the self-reliant attitude that predominated over the country's ascension. The fundamental values of Western Civ are disregarded and even disrespected; and "demographics is destiny" is working against the remnant.

Universal suffrage is a cause of social downfall; it's part of the step just before benevolent dictatorship (or similar) form of government. Universal suffrage facilitates class warfare and enables the demagogue.

Centuries-old wisdom has been scuttled by the political class - the public is becoming ignorant by design. Now the trick is to keep the public in the belief that it, the public, is in control of its destiny. The vote, as long as you have the vote, you are in control.

I call BS.

-- If nothing else, we need to take the Senate. Vote. Leave POTUS blank if you must, but don't cut off your nose to spite your face. --

Heh. I "no vote" the US Senate slot, because the GOP gives me Snowe or Collins, and neither is acceptable to me. But I always vote. Darn near didn;t vote McCain/Palin; and given a similar choice, where my attraction is driven by the VP, I will NOT vote for the GOP offering. In other words, my vote was not for Mccain, but that is how it was counted, and that is how it should be counted. The man at the top matters, and ONLY that one.

I don't care if the GOP collapses, and I prefer to see the Federal government collapse quickly, and soon. The colonies did okay before the confederacy, and did okay before the federal government turned against the constitution in, oh, about 1915 or so.

It seems the RNC really would rather have Obama than Newt as president. I think they know Newt would be likely to target the permanent political class.

Vote for Romney?

In the words of one of his endorsers, G.H.W. Bush, “No, it wouldn’t, wouldn’t be prudent. Not gonna do that.”

I’ll crawl over broken glass to vote third party if Romney is the nominee.

I had heard, on another thread, that the GOP Establishment wants Romney, and that they do not care if he loses to Obama, because they want to gain the Senate and keep the House, all in order to gain and retain the plum committee chair assignments, which allow the best kickbacks and bribes.

This is what they want, and they're afraid a Gingrich nomination will spoil it for them, and he'll turn off so many voters the democrats will retain the Senate and gain the House, thus causing them to lose all that booty control obtains.

This is quite the dilemma. I cannot bear the thought of Myth Romney as the GOP Candidate...0bama-lite.

I fully understand the need to build conservative majorities in the Senate and House, but we need to be mindful, too, that the next President is likely to have the opportunity to SIGNIFICANTLY shape SCOTUS. It is arguable whether Myth would make truly conservative appointments, but it is a sure bet that BHO will NOT. I don’t think we can stand 20 - 30 years of a hard left Court.

It is well past time to establish a viable third party in US politics.

What state do you vote in?

If you are from a locked down state it won't matter, if you are from a state that could swing the election...Ohio, PA, WI, VA etc. I implore you to rethink this post.

As Ben Franklin said, "We give you this Republic, if you can hold it", and that means doing some things that while you consider very hard, are nothing compared to what the founders went through.

If you sit out this election and help obama get re-elected, think about Thomas Paine being hung, and you turning your back and staying home and pouting.

The thought of voting for mittens is repulsive to me, but the thought of obama for another four years will end the American experiment.

I agree with everything you've written....save one statement. And that is, "I WILL NOT VOTE".

Given that I agree....and feel (operative word here is "feel") the same way as you, I won't repeat all of it here.

However, try this idea out.

On the national ballot, should there not be a "no" box (or "against" if you prefer) next to the "for" box?? In this manner, you could truly show you intentions, and have the same privelege our federal and most of our state representatives have when they vote either "yay" or "nay" (yes or no) on a person or measure.

However, we, the voting public, have not been given this priviledge, and so our "vote" is really a "choice".

I am deadly and solidly against that...and have been forced to make a choice for - believe it or not - more years (tho not many more) than have you.

So this time 'round - just like back in '08, I will go to the voting booth with head held high, back straight, stout of heart, and firm of mind and with all the vehemence and ill-will in me, "choose" AGAINST the stain!

Try this mind-set; it might suffice until a truly choosable republican comes along. I fear that won't be this year tho...hence the need for "mind games". But...anytime I can choose against the stain and what is represented by the stain, I'm satisfied....not happy, mind you, but satisfied.

Another non-voter if Romany is on the ballot. I made that vow last year when I was forced to vote for McCain, but had no vote in the primary. I will vote on everything else.
