vanity | March 5, 2012 | Steelers6

Posted on 03/05/2012 9:13:33 PM PST by Steelers6

Tennessee looks like Santorum and Gingrich are fairly even with the 2 of them, Santorum has been in the lead but Newt has been coming on. Everyone in Virginia who is not a Romney supporter should vote for Ron Paul, 1st head to head matchup anyone has had with Romney.

Except for Alaska unless the polling shows Romney ahead of Paul slightly with Santorum third.

Vote Newt on Super Tuesday.

Stop with the non Romney vote. We need a platform candidate; not a artificial candidate who has ties to Bush big government. Rick cannot beat Obama. Get real. We need Newt to win.

LOL. Well I do and it will give me great pleasure to “pull the lever” in protest of the GOP-E’s efforts to disenfranchise me and other VA Conservatives! (It's just one day and it's just a Primary!)

VOTE FOR RON PAUL in the GOP-E MACHIAVELLIAN PSEUDO-PRIMARY TOMORROW!!!

I agree with voting for Iran Paul just as a Romney-momentum killer, since there’s no chance Paul can win the presidency. Unfortunately Paul’s delegates will only switch to Romney in the end if it comes down to the convention, so it will be a phyrric victory, but we have no better option.

The Ron Paul people don’t seem to think it’s possible to win Virginia, and that’s surprising considering how pie-in-the-sky they usually are. But I think Paul is not even campaigning or running ads there, which just shows how in the tank he is for Romney to give up competing at one of his best shots because it might hurt Romney.

We got a poll call clear out here along the Yukon, I told them I was voting for Santorum mainly because everybody out this way says they are voting for him. Paul had an appearance in Fairbanks over weekend, I heard bunch of people showed up; but I don’t think Alaskans are as Libitarian as they use to be years back; more Palin type Republicans. I just hope it’s warmer on Tuesday than Monday morning, minus 33 F tis morn when I got up; supposed to be warming up come March.

Ron Paul is dangerous.

Ron Paul, Soros and Defense

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4q1vYx1V3g&feature=related

Before everyone gets their panties in a wad. Obama is already starting to make the moves to destroy our military.
Ron Paul will just drive the knife into their backs.
I thought it was clever how the Obama military haters are going to cut Benefits for veterans and wounded soldiers.
Wonder how far enlistment will drop on that one.

 

One of Ron Pauls best friends is George Soros..

There is a third option in Virginia if you don’t like Romney or Ron Paul. This is what I plan on doing. It was posted by Gopher Broke on 2/27/2012.


March 6 VA Republican Presidential Primary, your 4 voting options
Me
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2852050/posts

Posted on Monday, February 27, 2012 3:41:30 PM by Gopher Broke

On March 6th, the Republican Party of Virginia will be holding its Presidential Primary at your local polling precincts. Polls open just like regular voting times, 6am to 7pm.

You have 4 choices: Vote for Romney, vote for Paul, stay home/don’t vote or show up and do an “undervote”.

Please do go to the polls and vote, if possible. More votes at the poll show more Republican strength.

An undervote allows you to vote (in person or absentee) by showing up, pressing the VOTE button without choosing either candidate. Some might consider it a “protest vote” or a “blank” vote, if you choice is not on the ballot but it counts as a vote in the Republican primary, without adding a vote to either candidate on the ballot.

You are NOT allowed to do a write-in in a Virginia Primary.

Problem is if 10 people do an undervote and Romney wins by 9 votes, you handed the election to Romney. You’re better off voting for Paul.

I’d take Romney over Paul.

I don’t give a damn about the Mormon stuff. I think Mormonism is largely a cult, and some otherwise good people have gotten caught up in it. I’ll judge Romney on Romney ... not on generic Mormonism.

Romney tells you what you want to hear. He believes what you want him to believe. He is a slave to his popularity, which means he’ll listen to his voters when we think he’s wrong. I’d rather he be instinctively right ... but I don’t think he has it in him.

Paul is an ideologue. If he’s wrong, he’ll go down in flames in his wrongness ... and he’ll take us down with him. And, he’s wrong a LOT. His foreign policy is a catastrophe.

I’d prefer an ideologue that’s right over a finger-to-the-wind politician. But, I’ll take a finger-to-the-wind politician over an ideologue that’s wrong.

That is how you pick your candidates? Romney is a lifelong, dedicated, anti-conservative, from that same kind of family.

Romney was with his father in 1964 when they stormed off the convention floor to protest against Goldwater and conservatives. Romney's father ran as the anti-conservative, anti-war Presidential candidate in 1968, his mother was the pro-choice liberal Senate candidate of 1970.

Romney himself was an Independent during Reagan and did not vote for him, Romney came to support only democrats and even fund raised for Planned Parenthood. Romney was anti-"Jesse Helms type Senators", and against the Contract with America.

Only 1 our of 4 Judges that Romney appointed were even republicans.

Romney is a dedicated, believing, liberal, who hates the right, and conservatives, he lies to the right, to you, not to the left.

Bless you, Christie - you’re so right! Newt could slap BHO down soundly, then make breathtaking changes and our country really needs him.

I pray every night that God will grant us a leader who loves our country as much as Bibi loves his. While I do believe that Santorum also loves America (maybe even Mittens and RP do - maybe) - I KNOW Newt does, and he’s the only one who can defeat BHO. Just pray there are enough voters who are intelligent enough to see that.

That says it all, doesn’t it? RP has the best chance to win in VA, being only one of two names on the ballot!!!

Too bad his crazy supporters don’t see this.

Yep. That was my only point to begin with. I don’t have a defense for Romney other than “better than Paul”. If he gets nominated, I suppose I’ll have “better than Barack”.

I’m not voting for Romney unless he’s head-to-head with Barack. No need to defend him at this point.

Yeah, it looks like Ron Paul did a campaign appearance there recently. But the people on the Ron Paul forums seem to be saying he's not running ads there at all. That says it all indeed. There's a lot less "rah rah Ron Paul" sentiment in that thread than usual but so far they seem to be viewing it as an honest "mistake." They said:

As far as TV ads and what not, I haven't see any.

I haven't seen any ads for RP on television, but all we have is an antenna. Lots of signs and bumper stickers though.

to late now but we should have done this state

it has been known for a long time that there were only 2 people in the va race, yet no ads and no super brochure effort.

your guess is as good as mine maybe the super pacs will run ads there just attacking romney (Note: This is delusional since it was posted a day ago. If there are no anti-Romney ads yet, there won't be.)

I'm wondering too....this primary was a two person race.more resources should have been put into it....

(And the LOL "of course" comment of the thread)

I actually have an easier time with getting Obama supporters to vote for Paul in the primary here in Northern VA than I do getting support from the socially conservative in VA.

Virginia won't give Paul the Nomination. A Paul win in Virginia might take Romney down a notch and kill some of his momentum. If you want either Newt or Santorum to win, Romney has to be curbed, and a Paul vote in VA is the only way to do that there.

Repeat: A Paul win in Virginia will not give Paul the Nomination. A Romney win will push Mitt right along. (View it as voting against Mitt, an "ABM" vote.)

I hate this b/s spam.

Vote for the one candidate that you believe in your heart can quickly and intelligently turn his country around.

If you believe that man is Newt, like I do, then give him your support.

Review this video and ask yourself if the sweater salesman could have even come close to dealing with such command.

I don't live there, haven't for decades. If I did, though, I'd have to look at the big picture much as I laid it out for you.

If people in Virginia want someone other than Mitt for the nominee, they have to vote against Mitt, and in this instance that means voting for Paul.

It's the only vote which will work to check Mitt's momentum there, and doing so might give Newt or Santorum a better chance overall at the nomination.

Which is leads into why they don't want him.

Then they would have to Govern and make decisions.

The whole dang bunch of them have become the prototypical Bob Michaels go along to get along boot licker of the DNC. But they got their life time medical, pension and TSP not to mention a cushy job on K Street after making 2 or 3 times what they did in the House and Senate.

Both sides of the isle have become the "business" of Government and Programs.

The problem for us is, we want it all downsized and re-engineered and Newt just might be the guy to get that ball rolling...
