Republicans need to unite to win
Sun-Sentinel ^ | April 1, 2012 | Noelle Nikpour

Posted on 04/01/2012 1:29:22 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

"I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat," the American humorist Will Rogers once said. He also said, "Democrats never agree on anything. That's why they're Democrats. If they agreed with each other, they would be Republicans."

Will Rogers must be turning in his grave because this is the year that Democrats are organized and do agree on something — the need to defeat the Republicans.

That means if Republicans want to win this election, it's time to unite behind the only candidate that can still win the party's nomination, Mitt Romney, and then explain to voters how the core Republican philosophy of less government and lower taxes will rally the economy.

[SNIP]

Once the general election begins, Republicans must be sure to fight the battle on their terms. They'll have a businessman who created jobs versus a big-spending Democrat who has presided over four years of unemployment. They'll have a man who has succeeded at everything versus a failed president.

And they'll still have the issues that matter most to Americans on their side. According to a December Gallup poll, 64 percent of Americans said the biggest threat to the economy is big government, which can't be good news to Democrats, who love big government. Another 8 percent cited big labor, a Democratic Party ally. Only 26 percent said the same about big business, which traditionally is associated with Republicans.

A strong nominee, a united party, and a coherent message about the dangers of big government versus Obama and his big-government record. If that's what Republicans run with, they'll win.

and then explain to voters how the core Republican philosophy of less government will rally the economy

And then there is Nora from Bakersfield:

"Who's driving the wedge?"

"Regarding President Obama making a statement on the shooting of Trayvon Martin: Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney have traveled around this nation, and continue to do so, condemning gay marriage, abortion, out-of-wedlock births and access to contraception; wanting to abolish the separation of church and state; letting Rush Limbaugh get away with his misogynist views; and saying the poor don't have good role models and that blacks need to earn a paycheck to know what it's like to earn real money, and now have the gall to espouse that the President is putting a wedge between the American people? These GOP theocrat bullies are hypocrites and, worst of all, false witnesses.

How in the heck can these three candidates even conceive of leading this nation into more civil and ethical behavior with such repulsive political views and/or agendas?

I say these candidates have no idea how to dream of great things because they are totally devoid of compassion, kindness, consideration, sympathy, unselfishness, hospitality, charitableness and, most of all, humility; they are the worst Christians to have invoked Jesus' teachings.

Nora Luttrell
Bakersfield

[emphasis mine] Note the characteristics Nora finds good in a national leader. She would have government be her savior.

.......PETHOKOUKIS: Under your plan, what would the U.S. debt-to-GDP ratio be at the end of two Romney Presidential terms?

ROMNEY: Jim, I’m going to have to get Lanhee Chen, my policy director, to get you that precise number. What I’m focused on is to get to a balanced budget by the end of my second term … But as the public debt as a percentage of GDP, that number is not in my head, but I can sure get it for you.

......PETHOKOUKIS: Speaking of housing, Glenn Hubbard has a plan to use [Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac] for a mass refinancing of GSE mortgages. Do you think there is any merit in that idea?

ROMNEY: I am studying that. As you know, Glenn is an adviser of mine, and there are some elements, which I am forced to consider when I study a program like that. One is not to encourage moral hazard where we encourage people to believe they’re going to get bailed out. And secondly, not to break the contract which had existed with any party to the mortgage document. It would be inappropriate to throw a huge loss to some party which had relied upon the existing practices of the marketplace. That being said, I am always interested in new ideas and will give it a careful review but no conclusion at this stage.........

Interesting.

Paul Weyrich, a co-founder of the Moral Majority, supported Romney in 2008 and came to regret it, saying that Romney believes government is God.

Quote of Paul Weyrich warning about Romney:

“When a chief executive can violate multiple articles of the oldest functioning constitution in the world and disobey statutes he solemnly swore to defend and execute faithfully, then blame judges who never even asked him to intervene, he mocks the principle of limited government and the separation of powers. He robs Americans of their unalienable right to self-government, for which so many soldiers, sailors and airmen have died.”

“These are just two issues (there are more) that absolutely disqualify Mitt Romney as a viable Vice Presidential option. He would fatally harm your appeal to voters with deep constitutionalist and social conservative commitments.”

“If Governor Romney is on your ticket, many social conservative voters will consider their values repudiated by the Republican Party and either stay away from the polls this November or only vote down the ticket. For the sake of your election, the health of your party, and the future of America you must not allow the obvious electoral consequences of that to occur.”

The voters already know that. The problem is that the republican party refuses to field a candidate that believes in less government and lower taxes.

We will NEVER vote for backstabber RINO Romney


Romney for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

However; I will walk over broken glass barefooted to vote against ZERO.
Who was my first choice? Does it really matter?

My first choice was Herman Cain, my second was Noot.

If we get another 4 of ZERO we as a country are screwed to the hilt. I can not imagine what he will be like as a lame duck he is already a lame duck.
No need to answer this I will not get in a flaming contest over this.

You are spot on. I will not stay home. I will not allow this President to reign another 4 years. I agree that we can’t seem to get the Concervative candidate, but that doesn’t mean I will let this President pick the next Supremes or finally sign my grandkids up for slavery. I choose to throw a speed bump along the way and hope that we can slow this crap down! This is not the time to dig heels in to say we didn’t do enough to save the Republic. Life isn’t perfect and we sure have had our share of Life’s lessons haven’t we? Everyone needs to stop whining and when the time comes to vote, do it. It might offer us an opportunity to vote again in 4 years. With this guy at the helm, you might not get that opportunity!

Sorry, I can’t appologize for my fear.

WE WILL NOT VOTE FOR ROMNEY of the 911 VICTORY MOSQUE. EVER!

"(The GroundZero Mosque) cleared its final hurdle ….
developers plan to build the $100 million center which will include a mosque.
Since its incipient stages in July 2009, when a Muslim-run real-estate development
company purchased the damaged, vacant building and land where the new center
will be built, the project has sparked controversy and debate.
.... the tattered building that was bought by the Muslim real estate company had
been owned by a subsidiary of Bain Capital, a company Romney founded in 1984.

So it's OK if his company can profit off the sale of the land ."


"Bain Capital, has cut checks totaling $90,000 to Romney's operation. "

I realize this thread is an April Fool’s joke, but have to address it seriously.

True unity can only be achieved around principle.

And the Romney Republican Party has no principles.

This has been apparent for some time.

And so, I will continue to help build a principled, practical alternative.

Probably.

But only if we forget who would return to unchecked power in 2013.

We can react from bruised feelings and suffer (truly) the consequences. Or we can set aside emotion and take one step in the right direction--removing this anti-American communist from the oval office--and continue to fight to reverse his course.

It's not the easy way out ... just the only one.

One of the good things about being a FReeper, is that there are so few of us.

If you do a quick list of posters, there are several hundred regulars, with another several thousand that post on occasion.

The site claims hundreds of thousands of visits {over some period of time, I'm not sure of the time frame} and yet the regulars know each other by their posts.

Of the regulars, there are about 150 {quick count, not scientific} that claim they will jump into boiling oil before they will vote for mittens.

I am not one of those and fully expect to be banned from FR because when mittens gets the 1144 delegates needed, I will then proclaim the unspeakable, and post that I will vote for the pubbie nominee, regardless of race, color, gender or religion.

If that is a a ban-able offense, then it's been a great run for the past eight years, good luck to all.

But come November 6th please do not bemoan Obama’s victory and what it means for freedom in this county. Have the guts to ask yourself “what did I do?”

Godspeed and enjoy the day.

Respect. The reality of having a 5th leftwing supreme court justice sworn in under a 2nd Obama term and having the 2nd Ammendment “retried” again and functionally nullified is beginning to set in. Considering Romney would probably nominate another David Souter type, it almost seems hopeless no matter which way we go.

It means I don’t vote for socialists.

In a general Presidential election a person's vote is the sum of your vote.

It is for someone and at the same time against someone.

If you vote third party or don't vote at all, you are denying the positive choice and affirming the negative choice.

As an anti-communist {which every conservative claims to be} whether you want to admit it or not, a vote for the third party candidate, equals a vote for obama and a vote against mittens.

Sleep well and when the second revolution starts, get with the other side, you helped put them there.
