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.
...” it is better to have [Obama] in the WH than Romney.”
Words fail me. Obama in the White House is the end of America.
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.
Agreed that we have to get involved. I did.
Another pro-Obama Freeper. rat...it's the new conservatism.
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.
OK as for president - but don't neglect the rest of the ballot... ~grin~
Except they will be not country left in 4 years. Our defense, and space programs are being cut, and economy is all being wrecked by the muslim communist. I not the biggest fan of Mitt but he’s better for the country over all that Obama. Obama for 4 more years will doom the republic. Count on it.
DC and the WASHINGTONIANS are the enemy, and they will not be defeated electorally.
The Ragheads have already figured out that the worst thing they could do for their cause, and the best thing for our Republic would be to nuke DC.
I would vote 3rd party only...only, if they get in gear and get in the race, if they are truly a viable candidate. Not some bonehead.
Lastly, if there is no 3rd party candidate stepping up....Newts far and away better than Romney even with his bumpy past.

I’m with you except for the part about “sitting out” the election. Your votes are needed in local and congressional districts. You can vote Constitution Party or some other conservative presidential candidate.
Don’t you dare squander your God given right to vote.
In reality, if Romney buys this nomination (Go NEWT) Romney would lose. In that case, this country goes bankrupt which is near inevitable anyway - the STATE and local governent in which you live will be of paramount importance in protecting your rights against the Saboteur and his rogue agencies.
You need to assure your state is stacked with conservative government like we have in Florida. If you live in a northern state like those Obama/Romney voting states - you need to move South to the conservative, God Fearing States of America.
Obama will have more flexibility to put us all in camps and to continue destroying America with trillions in debt, more socialism,giving away our sovereignty to the UN, having the UN take our guns, taking away our missile defense and nukes, more illegals ,destroying our industries, giving our jobs to China, censoring the Internet with ACTA, and a thousand other crimes this monster Obama and his democrat/socialist media complex will do to us Americans.. I will never surrender to Obama nor to the democrat/socialist media complex.
2012 is going to be an exact repeat of 2008’s election results, because of the shell-game the Ruling Class has foisted on We The People.
Like the old Soviet Union, we are now having our candidates selected for us by the burgeoning oligarchy running the show. Conservatism is clearly an enemy of these people, and like RIghtwardHo - I will be damned to again play their shell game by their rules again. We’re all being duped and deceiving ourselves that Romney is a choice that is better than Obama. Romney is a noose for Conservatism in America every bit as the noose Obama is for America.
Conservatives have no party - the GOP has discarded us and only uses us to get elected, whereupon they bash us the first chance they get and go along with the enemy. I’m done being the battered wife voter.
If history is any teacher, then we have to understand two things: voting in this election is not going to stop the Marxist Tyrant; the hour is later than most are willing to admit.
Secondly: only God can spare us our earned fate now. Our society has been allowed to become wicked and leavened. Why should God spare us what this people have chosen for themselves when His own people refuse to do 2 Chronicles 7:14? If you want to save the country and what is left of our liberty - THAT is the only solution that can save us now.
I’ve become more moderate recently.
And I still can’t stand the stench of Mitt 0bamney.
I won’t vote for the slightly lesser socialist.
We have a lot of Obama shills now on Free Republic. I used to think they were conservative bigots, but now I understand that Mr. Axelrod was wise to have Democrats invade FR and campaign against the Republican nominee.
Is anybody stupid enough to listen? Evidently so.
Smart Cookie, that Axelrod.
I agree. I heard that many conservatives will vote for Obama rather than Romney.
Amen, and well said.
I will never vote for Mitt Romney. Let the GOP suffer the wages of their nefarious , elitist work.
Four more years of Obama? Thats what you get even if Mitt Romney is elected president.
They way I see it, its better to have Obama, and at least you have the real national socialist, liberal fascist target. Romney is just a foil for the liberal fascist movement of Obama.
The GOP had the opportunity to invite a real adversary to Obama’s nationalist socialism. Instead the RINO GOPers stuck their heads in the sand, and decided to promote the myth that Obama is not UnAmerica, and NOT unqualified pursuant to Article II of the consitution , and NOT a liberal fascist. Doom on them.
The GOP is now sounding its own death nell as a party.Many conservatives will vote for Obama just out of spite, and the GOP deserves it for what they have done.Welcome to the Nationalist Socialist Republic of the United States of America as it morphs into a dictatorship.
Thank you Rick Santorum, and thank you Newt Gingrich for trying.Watch the migration of the wealthy and their capital off shore.Watch our nation turn into something like Zimbabwe, under the tender mercies of the US version of Robert Mugabe.
.....anyone who thinks and posts that Romney would be worse than Obama needs their computers impounded.
Look around you. This site has been anti-Romney for years and that’s Jim Rob’s right. After all it’s his site.
Little Green Footballs was once a very readable site too until Charles Johnson went so anti-conservative to make LGF unreadable.
I will vote for anybody except Obama and absolutely anyone claiming to be a conservative on this site and proclaims they will vote for Obama are lying about being a conservative and a troll.
Ban me if you want Jim but I will never, ever vote for Obama.
