Edited on 01/27/2012 3:36:35 PM PST by Jim Robinson. [history]

One by one, the so-called conservative news channels, talkers, pundits, authors, news sites, blogs, etc, are falling in line with the GOP establishment elite, stabbing conservatism and our leading tea party conservative candidates in the back.

Drudge, Beck, Coulter, Faux News, Rove, Hume, Abrams, Tyrell, NRO, etc, are all now deeply in the tank for the northeastern limousine liberal, Mitt Romney!!

Meanwhile, even losers Dole and McCain are jumping on the bandwagon, proclaiming that RINO Romney is "the most electable". Have to presume that they considered themselves to be the most electable too.

Never forget: "Electable" gave us Ford, Bush I, Dole and McCain. Voting for the crazy right-winger gave us President Ronald Reagan!!

Free Republic is one of the few remaining conservative sites still defiantly standing for God, Country, Family, Life & Liberty with the tea party, and with Newt, resisting the headlong slide into socialist tyranny.

RomneyCare = ObamaCare = CommieCare = taxpayer funded abortion = death panels = socialism = tyranny. These are indisputable facts and that's really all you need to know about Mitt Romney.

Mark Levin, Michael Reagan, NewsMax, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Erik Erickson, et al, are all exposing the RINO/turncoat lies. Romney and the establishment are orchestrating their lying subversive attacks on the pro-life, small government, strong defense Reagan conservative, Newt Gingrich, with grotesque distortions and false editing of historical fact!!

We are reposting these reports into our breaking news forums as they are released and hope they are widely disseminated in Florida and beyond.

Newt Gingrich is leading nationally and is threatening in Florida. Hang in there Florida!! Don't fall for the RINO lies!!

Mitt Romney has NEVER lifted a finger for any of our conservative causes. When asked what was his greatest conservative accomplishment in the debate, he answered "Got married, stayed married and had kids!" Congratulations! So did the great "conservative" B. Hussein Obama!!

Mitt Romney has said and done and agreed on a lot of the same things as B. Hussein Obama!! Abortion, gay rights, gun control, mandates, tax increases, socialist healthcare, etc. Obama would eat his lunch!!

Go, Florida!! Win ONE for the NEWT!!

We are the resistance!!

Rebellion is ON!!

Please keep it coming in folks. Please support the resistance! We're going to need Free Republic now more than ever to counter the entrenched GOP elites and our former friends and allies who have succumbed to and joined the establishment against us.

I think one of the great problems we have in the Republican Party is that we don't encourage you to be nasty. We encourage you to be neat, obedient, loyal and faithful and all those Boy Scout words, which would be great around a campfire but are lousy in politics.

Jim-

Thx! I would add Limbaugh to that list.

Example: Caller asked today if Rush would show the same courage as Sarah Palin and say who he would vote for in the FL primary. Limbaugh's reply: “That's not how I measure courage.” He then pivotted to another subject.

Yesterday he was spreading all the bogus Reagan crap ...then did a sort of retraction late in the show after the damage was done. Today gave another sort of retraction; then went on to pimp Santorum; knowing he can't win and will pull votes from Newt. He also pushed the premise that no one should be telling Santorum to drop out; it's still a 3-way race; blah, blah ad infinitum.

Palin: "Look at Newt Gingrich, what’s going on with him, via the establishment’s attacks.
They’re trying to crucify this man and rewrite history, and rewrite what it is that he has
stood for all these years."

One vote here for Newt.

And another very rebellious vote for Newt here too. Screw the establishment GOP. They have stabbed us in the back for the last time. I am making a list like the one in JimRob's post, and I will never forget them and what they've done, and are trying to do yet again in this election.

I can only speak for myself, but as for holding my nose and voting for Romney?

Hoo rah! You are 100% right Mr. Jim Robinson! Who do these loser RINO's think they are, trying to tell us to support another loser RINO?

No Willard! No way, no day. So just get over it and go away.

I like it—”Win one for the Newt!” I believe Reagan would stand with him—and in spirit he does. Mittens would never do a “Mr. Gorbachof tear down this wall” kind of speech, Newt would.

I have come to a belief (before this) that the political Parties do not represent the views of the people they are supposed to represent. What they (Party leaders) represent are the views of those who are comfortable with the status quo, and who prefer to be the string pullers of the people and not be responders to the will of the people.

That term “powers that be” comes to mind when I hear the term political Party leaders (of both Parties). The leaders don’t have a philosophy that they should work for us. They prefer that they yell “jump” and we say “how high” and as a result they are losing us, instead of uniting us.

I consider myself conservative but no longer beholden to the GOP as a Party person. I have written a letter to the editor chastising them for circumventing the public will by deciding in their smoke filled caucus backrooms prior to the primary election, which candidate should be rewarded with their endorsement kiss. The public should be given the opportunity to decide in an open primary election and not the Party hacks. The same should occur in this national primary for GOP candidate.

This move to get Mitt could backfire as Americans are not in a mood to accept the GOP establishment decision and blindly go with the establishment choice. The more the GOP says it must be Mitt, the more rebellion there will be from the rank and file.

Just my opinion.
