“conscience” does not dictate you can’t vote for an imperfect candidate. No candidate is, therefore there is no ‘perfect’ vote. I (and probably you) voted for worse Republicans than Romney - McCain for one. It was an easy vote because I knew how leftist, dangerous and horrible Obama would be, even though voting for McCain would have done damage to the GOP. So be it, “Country First!” remember.
Well, Romney is an easier vote than McCain, for one Obama is that bad. Anyone But Obama!
Here’s what I wrote in another thread, that is on point here:
we are TOO MUCH focussed on the negatives of our guys than the positives, treating something they did or said a long time ago as proof they can never ever ever be of any good. Too much negatives against all of them, from Newt, Santorum, Cain, and Romney. Too many circular firing squads, while the real battle is between us and the leftists like Obama who hate us all. Obama side loves our intraparty fights, they feed it. For all the attacks on Romney being a RINO, looking at what he is saying and listening as he tries to channel Reagan, supports conservative budgets (Ryan), support prolife positions, calls to repeal obamacare, etc. Romney has a more conservative agenda than McCain did in 2008, than GWB did in 2000. Acting like it will be the end of the world if Romney gets in there and ends up being a smarter and a more fiscally conservative version of GWB is .. well, nuts.
I wish I had more time to respond, perhaps later, but for now if Romney were merely an “imperfect candidate” I might be able to consider voting for him. That’s not the case.
