I know every minute detail of the reality of this list... but it chills the blood to see it in a spreadsheet.
Forget it, dear, it’s a waste of time!!! You are only fooling yourself while making a fool out of your self which is totally unecessary if you live in the real world. I cannot believe the filthy verbage and hate spasms I have noted on this site posted by so called conservative Freepers. Leftie nutcase/Righty nutcase, what’s the difference??? Obama must be defeated!!! End of story!!! I want Freedom, Liberty, Opportunity to succeed and progress with individual effort. Obama rules with hate, racism and communism, and the righties rule with hate, racism and Nazism!!! If only some of these Freeper posters could objectively read what they pen!!! Sad!!!
This is the same crap that you trolls were trying to sell us four years ago when we rejected Rooty.
Myth Romney is THE MOST SUCCESSFUL LEFTIST POLITICIAN IN AMERICAN HISTORY. NOTHING that Zero has done could have been accomplished without Myth paving the way for socialized medicine and militant homosexualism.
Read Jim's chart on this thread. Myth doesn't have a chance in hell of winning, but even if he did his agenda would be just as destructive. Myth needs to be stopped and it needs to happen right now.
Ronald Reagan, “The USA is only one election away from tyranny!!!”!!! You think it can’t happen here. Just study world history and you will get a concrete answer!!!
Yesss! Listen to JLGRAYFOX, Brad's Gramma! It's hopelesssss to want anyone but Romney! You must support Romney! If you don't vote for Romney, Obama will be re-elected, and it will be ALL...YOUR...FAULT!
And the party doesn't pick people that we would. They pick their own stooges.
Florida broke the rules for Romney. Has the party said anything? No? Why is that? Hm?
Oh my! That is quite an accusation. And still using the 3 exclamation marks, so I guess we better listen.
I don't think you are fooling anyone any more.
I would like to see a chart with Rick Perry on these issues.
To see what we lost.
How, precisely, is this implemented?
“This is the same crap that you trolls were trying to sell us four years ago when we rejected Rooty.”
I was (still am) actually a huge Palin supporter...the only reason I voted McLame.
Riiight [rolls eyes]
I think that is a doomed worldview. The idea of liberty is that you can trust free and informed individuals. I think this is a conservative worldview.
And the party doesn't pick people that we would.
The party doesn't prevent any qualified candidate from running and doesn't prevent any conservative from voting for them.
The "party" is not the same one day to the other. It's not this unchanging monolithic abstract. It is comprised of individuals. Those in positions of power can be changed and have been.
Any thing you can do with a third party you can do easier and quicker within the GOP. Anything you can't do within the GOP, you can't do with a third party.
>> “Obama rules with hate, racism and communism, and the righties rule with hate, racism and Nazism!” <<
Is the lightning machine down for service today?
If I remember correctly, Virginia did a little rule rewrite and interpretation also to favor Mittens.
When my children are suffering under the draconian policies of the second Obama Administration, no way no how will I look them in the eyes and say, "Don't blame me! I wrote in Sarah Palin!"
Is that really what we conservatives have come to? Ready to dismiss a Christian's loyalty to God and His expectations of His children? It's really easy to spew talk about the Lord, but this is one of those HARD times when, if you know Him, you have to search your heart, pray, and really ask yourself if aligning yourself with abortion and homosexuality is permissible in His eyes. And then act accordingly, as hard as it is.
Country is important, but nothing comes before God. Trust in His blessings and loving care. But, the choice is up to you, of course. Just don't be so dismissive of moral and spiritual priorities.
I think we're letting the RomneyBots and conservative quislings play around a little...
A true Palin supporter would NEVER support Myth Romney. And I say that as one of the very earliest Palin supporters, I was supporting her candidacy months before most non-Alaskans even knew who she was (and I can prove it).
I believe it would be unconstitutional for the state to force its citizens to enter into private contracts against their will simply for simply living within a state. I might understand requiring liability insurance if you wish to register and drive a car within a state, but compulsory health insurance just to live in the state? This would be a direct violation of their 4th amendment right to be secure in their homes, papers and private affairs if nothing else.
Definitely a violation of the founding principles and of our inalienable God-given rights to individual liberty and right to self-rule and economic freedom (pursuit of happiness). It’s clear to see that Romney cares no more about individual sovereignty or conservatism or Liberty than does Obama!!
Ronald Reagan on RomneyCare (compulsory health insurance) and the elites (Romney) introducing socialism into America via compulsory health insurance:
He promotes abortion and homosexuality, which contributes to the downfall of the nation. God is real.
Again, you apparently did not read the post you responded to.
