Jim Rob Is Right - But Conservatives HERE Have TWO Jobs To Do!

Jim Rob Is Right - But Conservatives Here Have TWO Jobs To Do!

First - blow off that feeling that we're going to lose, or already have lost! No, we're going to WIN.

First item of business, get invovlved in the Tea Party movement, and give D.C. a whole new influx of conservatives in Congress similar in size and importance to that of the last election - thereby blocking any of Obamas chances of having Congressional support for his machinations. Note too, the Tea Party used the GOP vehicle, not a third party. Reason, third parties are losers, because they don't have the national organization and presence large enough to compete.

FReepers need to get involved locally. There are tens of thousands of empty seats in local district Committees of the GOP across this nation - caused mostly by conservative appathy! Just by showing up regularly, you can be assured of gaining a seat from which you can VOTE - go to your county committees and vote there - and go to your state party conventions and vote there! (I personally helped see the ouster of liberal GOP control of the California GOP. Yes it was hard work, but we won - and that win has been, and can be duplicated in these perilous times through the 'hard work' of just SHOWING UP!)

Conservatives have a chance to block Obama, if not replace him. We CAN do that, but conservatives can not win by voting third-party - it's a throw-away vote that nets nothing.

The current GOP-E is NOT the friend of FREEDOM - but they are a very tiny group of RINO's that we can beat the snot out of - simply by doing what we can at the local district and state level. We - FReepers, and other dedicated conservatives - can and have ultimately fielded who becomes part of the GOP establishment. We need to OWN it like we did in the Reagan era, not destroy it through lack of attention to our God given orders to be 'watchmen on the wall' of who become our leaders.

No - it's not too late to shoulder your own responsibility - and earn your own right to say, 'I have fought the good fight, and WE WON.' There will be many opportunities in coming days to 'get involved' - don't let them slip by. Take advantage of the huge opportunities - you can, and will make a difference! It is quite fulfilling to debate hated RINO's FACE TO FACE - WIN when the vote is tallied - and see them denied a seat in party or public office!

Last but not least - we ALL need to get behind our Freepathon. Isn't it worth at least a dollar per day to you to come here, read, post, laugh and debate? Yes, I know, times are rough, and the 'cost of living' has gone way up. But, I'll bet you blow a lot on chocolate cake and ice cream or (insert your favorite deserts) - I, unfortunately, do! So let's all try to push this FReepathon toward an early completion - it might help save your waistline! LOL

I’ll say it yet again: I don’t expect obama to finish his term.

But that is the least of our problems, unfortunately.

Poll watchers! The Tea Party will need a ton of them to frustrate ACORN. Sign up!

Pushing cards and phoning for candidates is always good, but with ACORN and Osagyefo Barack Odinga-Obama intending to establish his Thousand-Year Dictatorship, the good guys will need poll watchers most of all -- and election judges, asnd assistant/alternate election judges.

Fair vote = good guys win!

Yep, the down ticket RINO’s must go. Along with all DEMS. There are NO DEMS left that aren’t already committed Leftists. The Commies own the party.

3rd party is not the answer, yet. First order of business is defeat Obozo and everyone who enabled him.

I loath, Mitt, but will not give Obozo another term........

The nation cannot stand that.

While I appreciate your well thought out missive ... it is this for me. I utterly refuse to vote the enemy into our camp. That, of course, is Romney. I’ve said it many times here, but it is better to have Obama to fight against, than to have Romney and his ilk take over the GOP and eliminate us. While I won’t vote for Obama under threat of death, it is better to have him in the WH than Romney. IF Romney is elected, Conservatism dies. If (as will probably happened) Romney loses in a landslide, the idiot “wisdom” of the GOP elite will be exposed and we can build a Conservative GOP.

This is MUCH more than the 2012 elections. I will not help the GOP in this one. I will vote 3rd or, more likely, sit this one out now that Santorum has pulled out.

You only throw away your vote when you vote for what you don’t believe in. A vote for RINOs is a wasted vote. You may as well vote Democrat.

If you haven’t had your primary yet, vote for a Republican not named Romney. Then find a real conservative to vote for in November.

Unfortunately, RINO Romney is bad for the candidates down-ballot too.

I disagree with those who say Romney will be worse than Obama.

Romney has already signed on Robert Bork to advise him on judicial appointments and Constitutional matters.

Obama has given us Kagan and Sotomayor and lots of other evil leftist judges.

That alone is a huge difference in favor of Romney over Obama.

I never understood why a candidate being declared “inevitable” would make people want to vote for him. If he’s so inevitable, he doesn’t NEED my vote. So I may as well vote for someone else just for the heck of it. Which I still have a chance to do in Pennsylvania. Newt-er Romney!

Ron, if 4 years ago, all the people making excuses for why 3rd parties ‘can’t’ win put those efforts into forming a real one, we wouldn’t be faced with the ‘option’ we have right now. We could have put up a true conservative and backed him/her to the hilt.

Instead, to this day, people refuse to accept that simple fact. Instead, we hear rallying cries about ABO ect.

You are a good man and I respect you, but I’m sorry. You are dead wrong on this. It is “NOW” too late for a 3rd party barring divine intervention, but it wasn’t ‘too late’ to begin the day Obama was elected.

Eventually people will realize the GOP id a wing of the Democrat party. Perhaps too late, but they will realize regardless.

I am not, never was, and never will be a Romney supporter. He’s a phony, a double-crosser, and an opportunist. I don’t trust him. But if he’s the nominee, I will absolutely vote for him — because, in this upcoming election, you will have only two choices:

1. You can vote for a candidate with whom you profoundly disagree, who has a number of things in his record that are questionable at best and horrifying at worst. You will have to spend the next 4 years in constant, uphill battle against this man if he’s in the White House.

— OR —

2. You can vote for a candidate who considers you an enemy of the state and will have no qualms about taking your arms, confiscating your property, placing you in a prison camp, and “re-educating” your children and grandchildren, who will become his slaves. There will be NO opportunity for you to fight back.

I choose #1.

"If (as will probably happened) Romney loses in a landslide.."

That is certainly a strong likely outcome. I just don't see Christian conservatives wanting to vote for a Mormon. I might be way off in my thinking, but I know many that simply won't do it because, to them, Mormonism is a cult that defies far too much of what the Bible teaches.

Voting third party is NOT throwing away a vote.

Those of us who live is solidly Blue states like California can vote for the Green Party. If enough people vote for the Green Party throughout the nation then it will become eligible for financial support and could claim a podium at future presidential debates.

A strong Green Party will split the leftist vote, giving the Republicans a better chance at squeaking by in future elections.

If your state is Blue, vote Green!

I will not vote for Romney. I will be voting third party if he is the nominee (and no, it isn’t a wasted vote). If Romney is the nominee, then people like me lose anyway. It’s just a choice between a mamba or cobra.

I had not seen that before.
We cannot afford to have Obama and his leftist goons
in for four more years PERIOD.
If that means voting for Romney and doing what ever we
can to hold HIS feet to the fire, so be it.

If we can hold the Congress and take the senate,
Romney will have to jump to our tune anyway.

I don’t like it but sometimes you have to go to war
with the army you have.

I know my friends here are principled and I am glad
of it, we fight for conservative ideals all of us.
I just can’t see letting intrusive socialism continue
to have a strangle hold on our government a minute
longer than we have to.
Every minute Obama remains in power, freedom suffers.
Then too, the judicial branch will only take one
or two appointments to be flipped into a statist
rubber stamp. We can’t have that!

IMHO, that is very smart thinking. Even though I am not American, I fear another Obama term more than anything.

Even if there is only a slight chance that Obamacare will be repealed under Romney, it’s better than what you can expect under Obama. If it doesn’t get repealed by the next president, then it never will.

This alone is enough reason to hold your nose and vote for Romney.

I have no problem with promoting down-ticket conservatives in the republican party, but I’ll not vote for Romney if he’s the repub nominee.

In that case, my vote will likely go to the Constitution Party or whatever independent conservative is on the ballot here in Ohio.

Spot on!

And the choices ROYALLY suck. But people either deal with it or take 4 more years of Obama and then there will be NOTHING left to save IF there are elections in 2016.

Personally, I'm absolved of staining my soul because I'm in the “Bluest” of “Blue” states and my vote, IF I were to vote “for” Mittens, would be wiped out by 3-4 Obama votes.

Like one of my old timer friends told me: “I'd vote for a f**kin’ dead housefly than Obama.”
