Here’s a third choice to consider:
3. Write in your choice for POTUS or leave it blank and vote straight Republican down-ticket.
If we control the House and Senate, we can shut Obama down. We can hold all of his judicial appointments. We can withhold all money. We can even impeach and convict Obama and Holder for the crimes we know they’ve committed.
If we control both houses of Congress by a large majority, we can reverse much of what Obama’s done and he can’t do a damn thing to stop it. We could even pass a constitutional amendment or two and send them to the states for ratification. That’s the best case scenario we face, IMO.
If Romney wins, it’s business as usual, especially if we control both houses. The GOP-e and RINOs will never listen to or consider conservatives again. But ... if we give them absolutely solid majorities in both houses of Congress but deny them the presidency, guess what? They’ll never ignore us again.
Maybe we put them on notice with the above scenario and give them 4 years to reverse decades of big government. That’s the only way to stop Obama, RINOs, and big government all at the same time.
Give it some thought. I will be.
You have said what I began thinking right after Palin announced she wouldn’t run. I did get behind Santorum, but he didn’t make it. In the primary I will vote for Newt, just because he’s the only conservative left, but if Romney gets the nom. I will not vote for him. I will down-ballot conservative and write in some name at the president place.
People keep talking about being afraid of Obama if he gets re-elected. How his people must LOVE to read those posts!
I am not afraid of Obama. He is like the punk with his gang of follower thugs. Take away the followers and watch the punk shrivel.
Fill the House and Senate to take away the follower thugs and enjoy the show! That is what I say!
By the way, I have never bought the line that Romney is the only electable candidate. Romney has never had a prayer against Obama. If Obama was seen as a white man and had the exact same record, Romney might have a chance against him, but “historic black” can’t be beaten by “rich-guy white” when all their other policies are exactly the same.
Just my opinion.
Why do you believe Republicans can “shut Obama down” if they control the House and Senate?
The House controls the purse strings, but we still run $1 Trillion deficits. His appointments get through the Senate with little effort, as do his treaties (New START 2011), but Obama has evaded Senate ‘advice and consent’ authority without consequence for three and a half years through the use of czars, unofficial appointments, administrative regulations and Executive Orders. Friday, April 13, he created a new agency vis-s-vis Executive Order to regulate the US Domestic Natural Gas industry - not a peep from Congress. The EPA creates a bureaucratic ‘cap and trade’ since Congress won’t, and 535 church mice respond with submission. We have 40? phantom departments now run by czars and no one says a word.
I don’t believe Obama is acting as an American President. I believe his is preparing the way as an insurgent revolutionary. 2016 elections will not occur unless we stop him here and now, IMHO.
If Romney wins, its business as usual, especially if we control both houses. The GOP-e and RINOs will never listen to or consider conservatives again.
But ... if we give them absolutely solid majorities in both houses of Congress but deny them the presidency, guess what? Theyll never ignore us again.
That is some of the clearest, best logic and reasoning I've seen on this issue since these discussions began. Kudos!
