To hell with the GOP-e. Barring a miracle, they got their big government, unconstitutional mandate loving, socialist abortionist Obama-lite RINO on the ballot, they can now get him elected.
We are the resistance!!
Shove him down our throats today, we shove him up your donkeys in November!!
I can see November from my house!!
“Then why are you crapping on the board?”
I think you’re embarrassing yourself.
“As a Navy Dad, do you believe in defending the right to vote for people we believe in or just the ones you approve of?”
I absolutely approve of your right to vote for Obama. And I do NOT approve of him!
And now you strut around like you are winning.
Yup. Just like playing chess with a pigeon.
And now you strut around like you are winning.
That’s hilarious! There’s not a strut-bone in my body, my friend. If Obama gets re-elected nobody wins.
Who wins if Romney wins? Romney?
“And conservatives are told that they have to be in the role of the person accepting the rancid garbage instead getting what they deserve.”
Feel exactly the same way, DNA.2012!
Well, good night navydad.
I hope you get over your fear of the big bad Obamaman.
Other than being afraid of that puss bag you seem like an OK guy.
The last two nominating contests have led me to believe that Iowa should be stripped of its initial status.
The Iowa voters have now, twice, seriously injured the leading conservative candidates (respectively, Fred Thompson in 2008 and Newt Gingrich in 2012) because they apparently prefer big-government, fiscally liberal Republicans who are the most intensely passionate on social issues.
The result is getting into intra-conservative battles between the most passionate single-sphere social conservatives against the Constitutional Conservatives who are conservative on all spheres and think they are all important. Then because I as a Constitutional Conservative want Fred over tax-hiking Huckabee or Newt over union-kissing Santorum, I get flak from Single Sphere SoCons because I’m supposed to rally around what would best be described as a partial-conservative “with Iowa momentum” when there’s a perfectly good Constitutional conservative to support!? And then *I* get blamed for “splitting the vote” because their weak big-government guy goes down in flames against the RINO and I wouldn’t budge from Newt!?
I want the CONSERVATIVE guy, not the most RELIGIOUS guy. If they’re the same, great! If not, pick the damn CONSERVATIVE!
A deep red Southern state deserves to go first. Then we can choose someone ALL conservatives can support.
No more Iowa first. Rally for it, shake the RNC to its foundation until it loses its status. They’re giving the GOP-E a pathway to fracture us to our core so they can sleaze and buy their way to a hollow victory. No more.
“Who wins if Romney wins?”
I don’t care who wins... as long as his name is not Obama! You got a candidate who will beat Obama? Vote for him!
I would... but some fear mongering guy on FR told me that doing so would elect Obama. If you could impart him with the great wisdom of your most recent statement, I’d appreciate it.
Mike Huckabee was leading going into the Iowa Caucus in 2008. Fred Thompson was never really a viable candidate, though he placed third with about 2/10ths of 1% above McCain if I recall. I agree with you though that Iowa rarely seems to be a bellwether of the actual candidate.
Obama in another term is worse than Romney. If Romney gets in, we can try to have Newt oppose him in 2016.
We didn't get here in one election and we won't get back to where we need to be in one election. Rush calls it, “incrementalism.” It will take decades of strong, methodical push back at all levels of government, every step pushing more conservative. Sadly, Romney looks to be that start.
I agree with your heart on this, though.
Norm, my friend... if trying to keep Obama from getting a second term is “fear mongering” then I guess I’m guilty as charged. Take me out back and shoot me.
Well said! My sentiments exactly!
Do I have that right?
That the lives of our Soldiers will be safer in the hands of a Kenyan communist than an American?
Ronald Reagan must be rolling over in his grave. When will the gop learn?
For the record...
“No matter what follows in that sentence - that is absolute suicide and insanity! Obama will destroy this country so fast with EPA, Health & Human Services, Homeland Security, and other unaccountable czar edicts, unfunded mandates, Presidential signing orders, and new supreme court members, that Congress will be thoroughly castrated and wont know what hit them!”
Suicide, insanity, castration...sure sounds like fearmongering to me.
No one denies he’s the worst president in history. And yes, there’s some truth to your assertions. A lot in fact. But if he were to actually go bug nuts dictator and no one in our government or military stop him, then where exactly is the America you speak of? It will at that point exist as a memory alone.
Now Romney, who states his belief in ‘mandates’, gun control, abortion, gay everything etc...I ask yet AGAIN, id different how?
Before he was elected to the big chair, Obama had nowhere near the list of actual anti-conservative and yes, anti-AMERICAN ‘accomplishments’ than Romney had as Gov. And you think he’s going to be less liberal as president? His anti drilling global warming BS? His anti christian gay/abortion BS? His total lack of foreign policy? How is any of that, and the logical result of such actions any less damaging to America? Don’t keep ducking the questions, answer them if you can.
He hates what we believe ‘is’ America, and his record, through his actions, prove it. If you vote for him, you get what you deserve. Your choice.
Again, I want to make clear that I was a reliable GOP vote all these years. I think I'm what most people would call a very reliable GOP vote, but no more!
Believe me. I agonize over this decision. I won't demonize those who vote (again) for the lesser of two evils and hope they won't demonize me. It's not an easy decision, but I cannot vote for someone like Romney, not even against Obama. That is a Morton's fork dilemma.
I think Romney is only slightly better than Obama, and given Romney's past, he might create a Democrat / moderate Republican coalition against conservatives. They will be able to pass the very things we fear from an Obama administration, an administration that is largely tied up now because an opposing party holds the house.
Romney's nomination means we are effectively disenfranchised, and his promises mean jack squat to me. If he's actually elected, we have no sway over him at all. I will vote down ticket, but no Mitt or Obama for me!
centurion316: “I never thought that Free Republic would help to destroy the country.”
The country is already very thin ice if Mitt Romney is the best the GOPe can offer to oppose President Obama. The GOP is complicit in everything that’s going wrong. Don’t think I’ve forgotten compassionate conservative Bush. We are where we are because of the GOPe and Democrats. I’m not going to beg and scrape for scraps from the GOPe’s table. A pox on both parties!
How about the Defense Department, our National Security, Israel, Poland and a litany of other people, organizations and Allies that need a strong America.
Many forget, that in '08 Mittens was the cat's meow as far as conservatives were concerned and very well might have been the nominee had Charlie Crist not endorsed McNuts on the eve of the Florida primary. I held my nose and voted for McNuts, in the general...only because of Palin.

Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans, has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters (75%) of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced, instead tapping registered Democrats or independents including two gay lawyers who have supported expanded same-sex rights.”
Their ‘conclusion’ is based on what Romney says he will do.
Saying and doing are two different things.
Sorry, but I don’t take ‘etch-a-sketch’ at his word because he talks out of both sides of his mouth.
I don’t see any difference.
Obama = Kenyan
Romney = Mexican
Romney = Pro Abortion
Obama = Pro Abortion
Romney = Liberal
Obama = Liberal
Obama never served in the military.
Romney never served in the military.
Obama if not muslim, clearly sympathizes with them
Romney is mormon. They both are not true christians.
So, from where I am sitting - there is no difference between the two.
As a christian, I cannot compromise with the devil. Getting republicans elected, great. But I am a christian first, republican second.
As a christian, I cannot bear false witness. I cannot donate to a campaign I don’t believe in, I cannot make calls on behalf of a candidate I know is evil.
As a christian, I know that everything follows God’s plan. My adhering to his teachings will not endanger this country any more than going to church on wednesday and sunday endangers this country.
So I know, I am called, I am compelled by my faith to NOT vote for evil, for Romney. I know that my doing so will be in accordance to God’s plan, and God’s teachings. I don’t know what a conservative, christian boycott of Romney will bring, but it will be as it should be. And maybe, next time around - and there will be a next time, God Willing - we won’t be taken for granted by those who need us.
Works for me!
Are you still killing your unborn?
My dad died after dinner one evening from a massive aorta aneurysm.
I'm GLAD that FR (Jim) values men's souls!!
Coffee shack ping.
RATE of deterioration is a consideration here.
After 4 years of Romney there will still be an America to save.
Obama’s goal is the destruction of America and there will be nothing left to save in 4 years.
Those are your ONLY choices!
Where in the Constitution does it say we get to choose a candidate for our political party?
This is why moderates think conservatives are stupid. You put all that time into some great graphics but have no idea what the hell you are talking about.
READ THE CONSTITUTION !
There are plenty of legitimate reasons to be angry that Romney is our nominee but our rights under the Constitution are not among them.
I don't tell others who to vote for when the choices are this bad. Obama is doing his best to get Republicans to give up their vow to never vote for Romney.
Romney is a liberal, it will show itself sooner or later. Let's just watch and see what he does when his number 1 opponent is Obama.
So far I don't see Romney responding effectively to Obama’s ‘Buffet Rule’ skit that he ( Obama) has been playing for a while now. Does he even have an effective response to it? , besides : 'rich guy's like me need that money' ? which is not very inspiring. Or is he just hoping the economy tanks and he gets lucky?
The Tea Party and GOP grass roots will keep the heat on Romney and a Republican Congress. In addition, the federal operational and generational deficits are so immense that the bond and currency markets will force spending cuts and reforms at the federal level, and GOP business interests will insist on regulatory reforms.
You can listen to the party elites and react from fear. The rest of us intend to fight back. Romney, Obama, same choice.
Have a good day.
Such a way with words!
I can’t in my right mind not vote or vote for Obama.
I just can’t do it
Then you’re a good man - Edmund Burke would rightfully be proud of you.
They are offering me Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi..
I want orange juice.
To say that Obama or Milt are my only options is false.
After an infinity of Heaven; how many souls COULD have been saved if MORMONism had not had a bully pulpit?
Where were those loyal conservative principles when they voted for McCain?
You'll wake up the sheep!
Right now, the President of the United States of America is engaged in a war agains Christians, whites and the very freedoms that I pray my children will enjoy someday.....I will vote for the lesser of two evils and pray that the damage done to this country by this imposter can be undone...
With respect, I don’t see how any thinking person would imagine a worse President than Obama ESPECIALLY considering that he would get at least one, perhaps two Supreme Court nominees.
Yes, I know Romney isn’t a Conservative and his record on choosing judges is shaky to say the least, but do you REALLY think Romney’s choices would be worse than Obama’s?
