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!!

Yup.

The term RINO is no longer functional. The party that embodied conservative american values is gone. Republican now means GOP-e.

I believe either in this coming election, or perhaps the next, that the TEA Party will have a viable candidate for president.

It is time for people of principle to have a candidate with matching principles - the principles of our founding fathers!

Your list...
Just a little of the left-wing, Progressive Liberal record of Romney:

1. Implemented/created Gay Marriage in MA
2. Supported and forced Gay Adoption in MA
3. Supported Abortion wholeheartedly
4. Raised taxes/fees over 300% while being Governor of MA
5. Implemented a state-level Cap and Trade system.
6. Supported Man-Made Global Warming
7. Supported the Brady Bill
8. Implemented a state level “Assault” Weapons Bill after the Federal AWB was allowed to expire
9. Supported TARP
10. Supported Amnesty for Illegal Aliens (Citizenship for those already here)
11. Supported McCain-Kennedy(Amenesty)
12. Implemented a socialized medicine in MA called RomneyCare complete with an Individual Mandate and $50 abortions
13. Nominated 27 Democrats (out of 36 nominations) for judgeships in MA, many of them extreme left-wingers

Good list. How does Myth expect to run against a guy he agrees with?

Romney is not my boy. He the last many standing. My “boy” was Rick Perry and I watched him trashed relentlessly here.

You support him, he's your boy.

You own him, and his whole stinkin' lying, left-wing, Progressive Liberal record.

Well unless someone is talking to the actual delegates about a brokered convention its nothing but TALK.

Which is why the GOP establishment got their choice. Because they control the system. Until more conservatives get involved in the system nothing will change.

Voting for a third party candidate out of protest certainly won’t effect a change of the system.

And this countries last chance of salvation before going down Obama’s toilet is ASSURED by crybabies not getting their perfect candidate.


First off. I am NOT a Crybaby.

Second. I don’t demand a perfect candidate. I do however think it would be best that I agree with our candidate at least 60% of the time.

Based on Mitts record I do not agree with him 60% of the time. I disagree with him closer to 75%. This is what happens when the GOP-e goes to the left side to get their candidate.

It matters not weather I vote for Mittens or not. He is Obama’s chosen one because Obama knows he can beat Mitt like a rental car with full insurance.

I don’t believe for a minute Romney is a liberal.

I believe Romney is a whore.

If getting liberals votes is the goal, then he is liberal. If getting conservative votes is the goal, then he is conservative. This is why I believe the USA could survive a Romney presidency. He would cave to pressure from liberals, but he would also cave to strong pressure from conservatives.

I think he is an empty suit who will cave to the highest bidder. All we have to do is out-bid the liberals.

Jim, thank you for your statement. This whole mess has shaken me to the core. And I’m not the only one. The Romney nomination will not only divide the Republican party, it has already divided this friendly group of conservatives. It’s sad to watch us accuse each other of being unpatriotic (and that’s the milder of the accusations hurled against me).

This division is manna from heaven for Obama. He probably won’t have to resort to voter fraud or intimidation to be reelected.

It’s too bad we didn’t realize the party hierarchy would screw us over like this. Had we known earlier, we could have mounted a third party candidacy. We were blindsided. So now we will have to endure four more years of Obama, maybe more if he succeeds in making himself dictator. Then watch all the pundits come out of the woodwork, scratching their heads and wondering what went wrong.

Funny, the draft-dodging surrender monkey Romney drew his line in the sand long ago when he denied Reagan-Bush, denied conservatism and ran as a gay rights pushing, Roe v Wade approving abortion advocate, big government mandate loving socialist. He’s now looking America square in the eye and lying his ass off. He’s a political whore who will say anything to get elected. Republicans are suckers.

It is they who fight and destroy Conservatives, and do NOT give the same treatment to Democrats, it is they who join forces with the Dems and their media to marginalize conservatism, in elections AND in legislation.

Guys like McCain and Romney aren't even slowing the slide into socialism any more, they're greasing the skids.

Sure not voting for Romney...hes Obama lite I know it , many freepers know it..and as pappy used to say..”you can’t fix stupid” so obviously the electorate has turned stupid...was it Franklin who said “You were given a Republic if you can keep it”
Looks like we may lose it due to ignorance,apathy or some other factor.
I vowed in 2008 I was voting for Sarah, not Mclame and it wuold never happen again unless a consevative sat atop the ticket...well Mittens is no CONSERVATIVE.

What would help immensely would be if Romney were to select a real, dyed-in-the-wool conservative as his running-mate. It'll be suicide if he goes with a progressive elite.

With respect, the problem with putting earrings on a hog is that, in the end, it's still a hog you're dressing.

The VP choice matters absolutely nothing to me. It's the candidate I can't support.

I’m not voting for someone who enacted homo marriage and Romneycare in MA. If that means that Obama gets elected, TFB.

I will happily support the constitution party as they believe in the same things that I do.

I encourage all conservatives to leave the GOP and destroy the party since it no longer represents us.

Amen and amen!

The GoP-e RINOs hatched a plan to get 90% of America to sear their conscience, set a precedent, and vote (for most/many) their FIRST ever...
...socialist
...pro-abortion
...LIBERAL.

There's just one teeny-little prob with their plan: There's not enough liberal socialist proabortion voters to go around in America to support two liberal socialist proabortion candidates!

It's NOT going to be the typical 40something% to 40something% vote...

Romney will have to "outliberal" Obama to capture the licentious Independents & the union Dems & Roman Catholic Dems & Hispanic vote. Just because conservatives won't vote for Obama does not mean Romney can get them to come their way.

The NEW FREEPER True Conservative Oath:

I will not become a shill, a catalyst or an apologist...
...for socialist healthcare elitists
...or for pro-abortion give-your-offspring-to-research slaughterers...
Nor will I vote for "I'm-your-American-god" Mitt Romney
I will not stay home on Election Day --
And hurt other true conservatives in key races
(As well as other key ballot issues)
I will write in Sarah Palin or some other TRUE conservative in the POTUS race as a collective "Protest vote" vs. the GoP-e

Just to clarify: as for me, I am not in the "Better Obama than Romney" crowd, I am in the "I won't hold my nose and vote for a Liberal" crowd - regardless of the party affiliation.

I bet many others here are the same way.

If they want my vote, they need to present a candidate I agree with and support. One I can have respect for when I don't agree.

I am not a Republican - I am a Conservative. If there is no Conservative on the ballot, then there is no one for my vote. I don't vote straight ticket - ever; never have, never will.

I fully understand the SCOTUS angle and its “supreme” importance.

Justice Kennedy has said he would retire after this 2012 election, but I have recently read that he said he would not retire if the Marxist is reelected.

I pray for the excellent health and long life’s of our 5 conservative justices.

I was reccently very happy to learn that Justice Thomas is a young 63.

Romney is much more dangerous than Obama. With Obama there is deep political division. But with Romney it is likely that won’t be the case as he swings everything to the Left.

Once Obamacare is ruled unconstitutional (which it WILL be) Romney will not be able to institute a national healthcare scheme. Nobody will be able to because the court will have said that such matters must be left to the States.

I'm totally with you in spirit, bro. Not sure WTF to do though. On one hand, we have OBama, who will certainly declare a dictatorship within months of a re-election.

On the other hand, we have Mitt Romney, who is a very liberal democrat. But he's not likely to declare a dictatorship.

So I've got a choice between being killed by a .44 magnum round to the forehead (Obama) or being killed by slow cancer (Mitt Romney).

I guess I might elect for the slower option just to give me time to get my affairs in order, right? I dunno WTf to do.

“HOWEVER we can’t ignore the likelihood that the next president of the US will appoint anywheres from ONE to THREE Justices of the Supreme Court.”

If you think Romney will pick a ‘conservative’ for SCOTUS, you’ve got another ‘think’ coming.

http://gopprimary2012.com/a-look-at-romneys-judicial-philosophy-conservative-reform-in-the-most-liberal-state/

“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.”

I disagree. If BHO is elected the conservate movement will not be responsible for all you mention. If GOP-e is elected conservatives will shoulder the blame when the same things happen.

When Romney appoints waffling, moderate at best, SCOTUS The Republic will be no better off.

A 50-0 total blowout repudiation of Romney wouldn’t change things?

Hey if the GOP thinks it can win without us, they should go right ahead. Seems they don’t want conservative support anyways.

If we all vote for the constitution party then we get a chance to speak our mind. Since the GOP isn’t giving me a chance to vote for a candidate that I can support then I’m going to use my only chance to speak out by voting a party that does speak for me.

And that’s not the Romney lead GOP.

Why are we listening to them anyways? Let’s all collaborate and vote for the Constitution party.

The writing was always on the wall at each turn in this primary race. The establishment wins again, as they seem to all the time. We never had much for choices in hindsight either. Conservatives have control in localized places, but never at the top of the ticket or in nationally focused races. It is the media, it is lack of leadership, and lack of voice we are given. This includes Fox which is slightly to the right of CNN and the major news networks yet very far away from conservatives. The war for the soul of the party doesn’t seem to spurn triumph from the hands of pixels as one would hope, and that is unfortunate. They have systematically weakened the great tea party movement and effectively neutered it, and in the process took another step in our destruction.

I believe we undervalue the power of the MSM, and it’s ability to dictate our leaders, and destroy those that believe in the values we all hold so dear here. We overlook their influence and power at our peril. They still hold all the power.

I'm very definitely not a "no-vote coward". I will be voting in November, just not for Romney or Obama, and I hope that those who despise Romney and resent the establishment insiders who rammed Romney down our throats (disgusting as that image is, at least it wasn't his neighbor, Barney Frank!) will also vote. We have to vote in the down-ticket elections to get as conservative as possible a Congress to restrain whichever big government liberal we get stuck with.

Eff the GOP-e. There’s no way in hell that I will vote for their abortionist, homo rights pushing, gun-grabbing, big government mandate loving socialist healthcare pushing constitution trampler. They’ve gone a RINO too far.

Most of us non-politician citizens that are interested in politics (more and more these days, of course) don't think about elections and governance from a politician's point of view. Understandable because we're not politicians.

A few thoughts, for what they're worth...

a) There is the impending pop of a worldwide government spending and government debt bubble. Since the U.S. government is so large and our economy is so large, it can't be turned on a dime. So deflating the bubble in a controlled fashion would be challenging, if a President AND Congress actually decided on that course of action. Romney is not a "bubble-popper", but would merely attempt to slow down it's expansion. He apparently will do nothing, however, to undo decades of immoral legislation that rigs everything against the individual, i.e., laws that encourage immoral actions against families and the individual while they create enormous legal risks, burdens and barriers to entry for private business enterprises.

b) If the next President is a Republican, the communist/islamofascist elements inside America will make a full-court press to initiate civil unrest in America. Since the radical far left is currently in the White House, violent confrontations between Federal law enforcement and anarchists are counterproductive to the far left's agenda; they make Obama look bad. So demonstrations are allowed to be "ratcheted up" but with the understanding that there will not anything really terrible happening while the far left enjoys the power of the Presidency. If a Republican is in the White House, civil unrest can be deceitfully painted by the left as being justified, i.e., struggling to overthrow "the man", or wall street, "white slaveholders", or whatever other boogie man they select.

c) The C/I elements are allied with the "modernist/atheist" intelligentsia (which includes many wealthy and politically powerful people as well as leaders of the media and education, of course); both of these factions think they are the true leaders of society, i.e., they believe they are uniquely qualified to "run" society and they are very self-important and feel that they do, in essence, "run" society.

d) If the debt bubble breaks under the next President and they are a Republican, all the world's problems would be blamed on Republicans by the media so much so that it would make the media of today seem unbiased. The left, from their positions in education, the press and government would make all the use they can out of economic misery. The far left violent groups would go all out to incite violence, which would be rationalized by the intelligentsia and publicized and championed by the liberal press.

e) To the contrary, if Obama is reelected, continued government debt bubble expansion would hasten the debt bubble burst, and forever brand liberal theories with epic failure.

f) Large publicly-held financial organizations, state and local governments, unions and pension funds would be hit tremendously hard by the bursting of the debt bubble. Unemployment could very well reach a grand scale. People have to eat; individual citizens, therefore, would simply weather the storm, same as in Depression I, by extreme belt-tightening. Moving in together to save on housing, spending little to nothing on clothing, cars, travel or anything but the barest of necessities. Once one's investments are all gone, investment losses cease. Depression II will mostly hurt those who have significant wealth, for there the only truly safe investments would be in those necessity industries. Out of it all, people would be faced, inevitably, with going back to believing in the reality of simple business arithmetic instead of the hacky political and social theories of the over-educated. Given the high state of technology today, and the large number of entrepreneurial leaders in America, there is no need for a complete rebuilding process to be very long or painful, and it would provide a solid mandate for lopping off much of the lethargic and parasitic government machinery. Most importantly, more folks might come to realize that a spiritual revival is a prerequisite for any lasting social, economic and national security revival.
