This Level Headed FReeper is *NOT* voting for Romney (VANITY)

Posted on 04/10/2012 6:20:28 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing

With all of the chicanery that the GOP-E has done over the last year, and helped the media to do over the last year, there's NO WAY I'm surrendering to these creeps.

Romney is *NOT* our candidate! He's their candidate, we're NOT REPUBLICANS! We are conservatives and constitutionalists FIRST. We believe in small government! Not this big government crap that Romney has peddled for the better half of the last decade or two, and I certainly can't do any more nose holding at the ballot box.

Voting for a big government republican is the real world equivalent of cutting off my nose to spite my face. That I refuse to do.

Reforming the GOP into a small government conservative party doesn't just mean voting for the right tea partiers at the right time. It means refusing to vote for the wrong big government republicans at the wrong time. We need to starve the beast of votes. We need to teach the republican party that if they have any shot at electoral success in the future, they only have one viable path. Bold colors BOLD COLORS BOLD COLORS

OK.

Not lookin' to pick a fight. Nothing of the sort.

You're perfectly within your rights to do as you please.

I'm no Romney fan by any means.

Do me one favor, though.

Come back and say that on 11/5/12.

Brace for this. You will hear it a lot:
_____________________________________________

Conservative: “I can’t stand Baal. He is a demon, and I have higher standards than that. Further, it is my duty to resist hell itself, and to defeat it where I can. We all have that duty.”

Party Peon: “A vote against Baal is a vote for Abaddon!!!”

Stunned Conservative. “Uh . . . No. I do not vote for demons. I am not voting for either of them.”

Party Peon: “YES YOU ARE! A VOTE AGAINST BAAL IS A VOTE FOR ABADDON! VOTE FOR BAAL BECAUSE HE IS BETTER THAN ABADDON! IF YOU DO NOT VOTE FOR BAAL IT IS BECAUSE YOU REALLY LIKE ABADDON AND WANT TO SEE HIM IN CHARGE!”

Stunned Conservative: “Dude, they are BOTH DEMONS! Either of them will make this place hell on earth! I don’t want either one in charge. I -HATE- demons and will not choose either one!”

Party Peon: “YES YOU HAVE YOU TRAITOR! YOU’RE VOTING FOR ABADDON IF YOU WON’T VOTE FOR BAAL! I WOULD VOTE FOR LUCIFER HIMSELF TO DEFEAT ABADDON, AS NOTHING EVER EVER EVER EVER COULD POSSIBLY BE WORSE THAN ABADDON!”

Stunned Conservative: “Dolt. Abaddon, Baal and Lucifer are all on the same team. They are each diabolical and I will not aid, assist or support any of them. They are DEMONS.”

Party Peon: “You are a bigot.”

Axlegrease may well pull off the strategic coup of the century.

Baraq Obama re-elected with $4 gas, 16% real unemployment, 46 million on food stamps and recurring $1.5 trillion deficits.

You'll be bombarded with the whiney "we gotta vote Obama out by holding our noses....".

I'm with you on this one; I'm done voting RINO, or whomever the GOP-e thinks they can shove down our throats because we will NOT vote other-than-R.

Romney-the-RINO won't beat Obama, no matter WHO the Conservatives choose to vote for. It's done; and we're done.

We’re splintered. That is just a reality.

There is too much bile left from last time we had to accept the candidate shoved down our throats. Many can’t taste that again for 4 years.

OTOH, we have to watch our beloved country get driven onto the shoals of socialism....

Maybe Gingrich can sew it all together again.

I’m with you. Romney is just Obama-lite or Diet Obama. I won’t pull the lever for either.

And to all of you who wanna blame me for Obama winning - kiss it. Romney can’t beat Obama anyhow. And, at least if Obama wins, we will only be stuck with his BS policies. If Romney wins, we could face 8 years of continued BS. So I am voting my conscience & avoiding both. I just won’t do it. So please spare me the comments “so your supporting Obama?” or “Obama thanks you”. Save it.

So you’re supporting Obama?

That question makes perversely good sense, except for one thing: We're teetering on the brink of an economic, social, and (therefore) political abyss. We're well past the point where -- if one were rushing toward Niagra Falls -- it's possible to get safely to shore. The ship of state is going over the falls.

What's not certain is whether this will happen before or after the elections. If we reach election day and we have not gone over the Falls, then it's certain that the president elected will be in office when the crash comes.

Who do we want in the Oval Office then? I do not think it is at all a slam dunk that we'd prefer Romney. Obama, from what we've seen already, would almost certainly use the economic/social chaos to make a radical grab for power (martial law indefinately, for example). But, would that bring calm?

Who to vote for in THIS election is a very difficult calculus to perform at this point.

My FRiend. Do you not realize that Mister Obama, in a second (and "flexible") term will...

- get Rush and Fox off the air,

- separate you from your firearms,

- separate you from your property and wealth,

- and take control of the internet (and get FR off the net)?

Nobody could ape the chicanery of the Obama administration. This is most evil and corrupt administration that has existed. I love my family too much and am watching their lives ruined by bad policy.

It might have helped if we had a real conservative running we didn’t have to tear to pieces or make excuses for bad past behavior.

When I look at my kids and nieces and nephews, I refuse to leave them with the outcome of another Obama 4 years. As much as I wish it could have been different, I will vote for the orange juice can.

Nothing is left to lose.

I would rather have Romney with a republican
house and senate than Obama and a republican house
and democrat senate.

If we have both, is Romney going to veto what
ever gets passed? Obama sure would.

People who say they aren’t voting for the lesser
of two evils are sure voting for the greater evil,
and we know Obama is EVIL.

Now maybe it will come down to the convention.
I would prefer that, who knows what might happen?

Above all else OBAMA MUST GO!!!

if you live in a blue state then use for vote strategically and vote for the Green Party.

If enough people vote Green Party then they will become officially recognized, can demand participation in future debates, and will split the leftist vote.

Vote strategically: If your state is blue, vote Green!

Reforming the GOP into a small government conservative party doesn't just mean voting for the right tea partiers at the right time. It means refusing to vote for the wrong big government republicans at the wrong time.

Umm, no. Refusing to vote for Republican nominees contributes nothing towards reforming a party, it just makes the party completely ignore you. Do you see the Republican party catering to Libertarians (whom we do have a lot in common with on economic issues) in order to seize that .5% of voters that cast ballots for that 3rd party? Nope. They wrote them off.

The GOP is a political party. Pretty much everyone associated with it agrees to vote for the final nominee. That's part of the deal. Your don't have a constitutional right to join the Republican party and if you don't agree to their terms, why would they even let you in the door or ever support the candidates you do approve of? This is why you'll see virtually ALL (aside from Ron Paul who is only a gadfly using the GOP label to no useful end) Republicans endorse, campaign and support Romney - and that includes Palin, Santorum, Gingrich, Cain, Perry, etc, etc, etc.

You can start your own party, join an existing 3rd party, or just not vote (or even vote for Obama if you want to speed our national decline along). Refusing to vote for Romney the chameleon is certainly fine if you feel your conscience won't allow it - but screaming, wailing, making declarations that you won't vote for the Republican nominee will only get you ignored by the party. It won't help reform the GOP because they will simply write you off.

For far too many years I have fallen for the “if you don’t vote for Dole, it’s a vote for Clinton.” crap. I used to think the GOP-e was the party of stupid......not anymore.

They are the party of working with the dems and ensuring, even if they are not in the majority, they still thrive, we don’t.

Look at how they treated Palin, Romney’s people. Never again.

This is my opinion so not to offend anyone here.

I think one of the things Democrats have going for them is that they stick together and they will support their nominee in this case it is Obama. It is hard for Conservatives I think because they have ideals and they actually think for themselves and don't really go along with Group think mentality like the Democrats seem to do. However in order to dump Obama people must rally around the republican nominee I know it is hard but that is what you have to do. Anyone but Obama.

I've gotten in arguments with old friends about obamacare. My opinion is obama has a good chance of winning, and gas will be $7 in a few years.

I would encoyrage you to think this through.

Obama doesn;t care who controls the Congress--he will sidestep them.

Absent a military coup or impeachment AND conviction by the House and Senate, who or what is going to stop him?

Can you honestly see the GOP leadership going for impeachment and conviction? If you do, please send me some of what you are drinking.

The best way to stop Obama right now, is to support Newt mto stop Romney from getting the 1144 delegates before Tampa.The clown posse can't even defund Obamacare.

Then this is a whole new race.

Obama must leave the White House on 1/20/13. That is the prime directive.

The issue is that neither party really wants to represent their base. The GOPe doesn't want conservatives of any stripe, and haven't for decades. They go to the same schools, live in the same areas, and attend the same parties as their DNC e counterparts. They don't care about fiscal conservatives, to be honest they think they are stupid. They don't care about social conservatives, they think they are backward hicks.

The DNC doesn't really like their base. They pretend to be all caring, but many have little use for those they champion. Look at the policies.

The real question is what now? I don't know if or who I will vote for. But it does appear we are heading to a major break up.
