When Romney is the Nominee.....? (VANITY)

With Romney somehow in the lead and presumably heading towards becoming the GOP Nominee, how do you intend to vote in November?

I will follow the Buckley rule and vote for the most conservative person WHO HAS A SNOWBALL’S CHANCE IN HELL of beating Obama.

I don’t like Romney at all, but I love my country too much, and care about my kids too much, to get all pouty and take my ball home because I didn’t get my way. Everyone out there who’s considering voting 3rd party or staying home should consider that many moderate Republicans voted for Reagan - twice - when he wasn’t their cup of tea (he was mine, and I’ve never been happier to vote than in 1980 and 1984).

I couldn’t vote for Bush 41 in 1992 - based on my thought processes at the time. I figured that Clinton was a nobody, that we’d beat him for sure in ‘96 (especially after the ‘94 sweep)...well, that didn’t exactly work out so well. The truth is that a 3rd party CANNOT win (there hasn’t been a President who wasn’t a Republican or Dem since the 1850s), and that the only message that voting for a 3rd party candidate sends is that the voter in question cannot see beyond the end of their nose. That, and it encourages the REAL enemy (not those that share 70% of your values and positions, more like 10%) to create more divisiveness on our side of the aisle.

I’ll swallow hard, but if Romney is the nominee I will vote for him, as distasteful as that may be...because 4 more years of this utter disaster, this treasonous destroyer of everything good about this country, will put a stake through America’s heart. I simply cannot stand by and allow that. At least with Romney, if we have a reasonably conservative Congress, we’ve got a shot at a lot of good legislation, and we’ll have a sensible, pro-American foreign policy.

I pray that by election day, conservatives will understand that a vote for anyone but the Republican Party nominee -- or not voting because of principle, disappointment, spite, laziness or for whatever reason -- is effectively a vote for Obama.

We’re not talking about just 4 more years of high unemployment and gas prices. We’re talking about new supreme court justices that will agree that you have no Freedom of Speech, Religion, or Right to Bear Arms!

I wasn’t going to vote if Romney was the nominee but I have recently decided that Obama is too dangerous and he must go. That is more important to me at this point. After that, I am done with the GOP. Hopefully there will be a new party formed.

Go Gingrich! I will vote my choice in the primary.

If Obama is reelected there will be no more freedom in America. Everything we do, say, eat or think will be controlled by the State. I have lived in a Socialist country. Very oppressive.

If Romney wins nominee King Obama will get another 4 years and the end of America. We will be a full fledged communists Country and millions of Americans will let it happen. When this happens we will never be a land guided by the Constitution and freedom will be in the past. A no vote for the nominee will be a vote for the communists black Muslim.

Not my country anymore, doesn’t stand for the same things, looking for an opportunity elsewhere (although everywhere has problems).

That's shameful. A lot of great young men have fought and died in the hopes that the next generation would take up the next fight that would be necessary to preserve freedom and liberty in the expectation of our founding fathers.

Liberals have cried, "If Bush/Reagan gets re-elected, I'm moving....". And now I see it here.

I see a lot of panty wasted quitters on here. And it embarrasses me. FREEPER UP!

I know the frustrations, great enthusiasms to a worthy cause, and failure while daring greatly. I know victory and defeat! I am engaged and battle hardened. I know the perseverance and determination that is required and I expect the support and guidance of my fellow brethren dying in the trenches with me if necessary. That other men will see what we have done here, be inspired and carry on the fight is enough to motivate me to take the next hill or die trying.

they posted a question. it was voluntary.

in a political website, when a question is posed, you can answer, or not answer.

but answering that you wont answer is irrelevant to the question asked. so why do that except to just be contrary of the sake of being contrary..

I'm no moderator...could care less....so go ahead and be contrary.

ENJOY!

If nothing else, do it for your kids.

You are implying that Romney is better for my kids than Obama? That may be the case, but the results for my grandkids or great grandkids is no different.

I don't whine about losing, only about voting for losers. I have my principles. You vote as you like and I'll vote as I like. At least that way we can both exersize the liberty that countless men and women have given their lives in order to preserve. Save the lecture for those who share your values and are willing to settle. If the GOP didn't learn their lesson in 2008, maybe they will in 2012... then again, maybe not. Either way, its the GOP that has a lesson to learn here, not conservative voters.

Made up my mind long time ago - I will vote for Governor Sarah Palin in the primary and in the general election.

If my vote costs Romney the election (highly unlikely), what’s the difference between driving off the cliff at 75 MPH vs. 100 MPH? RINOs are counting on Conservatives holding their noses and voting for Romney. Not this time.

There is NOTHING more important than getting barack obama out of the White House....NOTHING.

ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE!

It is far more important to take control of the Senate away from the Democrats.

Electing either Romney or Santorum will do nothing to return control of our government to the people, with our consent. I agree that a vote for Obama is traitorous, but so is a vote for Romntorum.

If Romntorum gets the GOP-e nomination, I will go to the polls to cast my votes against every DEM possible, then for POTUS, I will write-in my vote for "John Galt".

You're dreaming, my friend. Even in the extraordinarily remote chance he would be impeached by a Republican-controlled House, he would never be removed from office by the Senate ... at least not in this lifetime!

I will vote for whomever our Party puts up against Obama. This election IS THAT IMPORTANT!

Absolutely spot on! Ginsberg is going to either retire or porbably die (admit it ... she looks close to that already) during the next 4 years. We can NOT allow another liberal justice to take her place or the place of any other that decides to retire. And I don't think this country can take 4 more years of Obama. If he wins re-election, I just might start believing in the Mayan 2012 theory.

A lot of great young men have fought and died

...in wasted, useless, futile wars such as Iraq and Afghanistan. The politically correct military is a major part of the problem. No laudable reason to enlist now unless the person really needs the cash.

I would have agreed with your sentiments in the 50s. It's just another (failing) country now.

Trapped as I am in the benighted Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I have the luxury of voting my conscience without consequence - since no matter what, Massachusetts will go for Obama even if he ultimately loses in a national landslide.

So no, I won’t be voting for Romney.

You guys are the worst. Great. Go ahead and vote for your liberal. I will not and Romney will destroy the country just like Obama will although at MAYBE a slower rate. He was a disaster in Mass and he will be a disaster for America. I thought you guys loved America? I guess not. Calling me names does nothing. I have been here long enough to be called every name in the book and it does not matter to me when I know deep down that you guys are wrong for supporting a liberal. I cannot emphasize to you enough that if you settle for what the GOPe puts in front of you, they will go more and more left every election until Lindsey Graham is acceptable to both of you.

He is destroying the country right before our eyes and no one is stopping the first black president. IF Romney is the nominee, he will not have a mandate to govern as a liberal.

If and when the idiot in our White House wins a second term, I am willing to bet that Mittens will get a cabinet post for pretending that he's a "conservative," and destroying what's left of the Republican Party.

If Romney is the nominee I will not only NOT vote for him but I will actively campaign AGAINST him. I will write negative letters to the editorial pages of newspapers and talk radio. I will urge my friend to vote third party.

If it is Obama vs. Romney - with Obama we have only 4 years of liberal policies and we have a chance of a real conservative in 4 years. If Romney won we’d have a liberal for 8 years.
I’d rather suffer for 4 years rather than 8 years.

I have to see first what will happen after Romeny “wins.” There could be a angry convention that erupts into chaos. Leading the break with the party and a tea party candidate. Then I’ll vote for the tea party guy. Otherwise, I Have to see if I can write in a name or if I like a 3rd party candidate left such as from the constitution party. So I am leaning to voting 3rd party if Romney is nominated, but I would support a write in campaign for Palin, let’s say. But who knows,
