I've read those links and more. Some I agree with. Some is a little over the top, in my opinion.

Facts are over the top???? Romney IS Obama.

I'm voting for the Republican opposition candidate to Obama.

Keep telling the RNC loud and clear that you have surrendered to their choice.

Quote Link “In the wake of the devastating Detroit riots of the summer of 1967, Michigan Gov. George Romney, a liberal Republican, met the radical organizer Saul Alinsky to discuss the grievances of the urban black poor,” he explained.

Photos of the meeting can be found in the archives of the Library of Congress.

Kaczynski noted that a book on George Romney quotes the former Michigan governor telling his allies, “I think you ought to listen to Alinsky.”

Political analyst and think-tank researcher Steve Baldwin believes that Mitt Romney was definitely impacted by his father’s association with Alinsky.

On the contrary, I've surrendered to reality , along with Marco Rubio, Ted Nugent, Robert Bork, almost all of the current house conservative leadership, etc.. I'm in good Conservative company. However, you go with what you think you need to do. I'll do the same.

Read again what I wrote. Did you read it the first time?

The RNC picked Romney last year. They are as liberal as Romney. Mitt has never done anything that's conservative. The Republican party has moved left. Those are facts.

Romney did not legally win all of Floridas delegates according to RNC rules. And yet they have done nothing. Liberal, abortionist, homosexual rights, gun grabbing Romney is the RNC's pick. And every time that you say you'll vote for him, the elitists gain power over the electorate.

Romney does not yet have the nomination. We still have a chance to defeat him. But we won't if people like you keep bowing to their masters in DC.

Hey DJ, I read your post the first time. We disagree. There are many on Free Republic that agree with you, there are many Conservatives, like myself, that agree with what I’m writing. You’re sadly mistaken if you think that the Conservatives like those that I’ve listed who’ve come to the same conclusion as me are “bowing to” our “masters in DC”. We’ve just sized things up differently than you. Nothing personal.

I have. It gives me chills, particularly when they list the Communist goals from back in the 50’s in light of what's happened. However, that video merely renews my conviction to see Obama removed from office along with his Yoda, Saul Alinsky. If it means a vote for Romney, I and many Conservatives that I respect have no problem doing that. Once Obama is out and we remove the Democrats from Control of the Senate, we can work on “purifying” our majority. Think of it this way, we'll have a lot more influence on the Republicans in control than the Democrats in connection with the next supreme court appointments. This is the real game and it will be for all the marbles in the next presidential term.

You really do know nothing about Romney. Bush didn't sell land to the Muslims for the 9/11 mosque. Romney did!

Romney appointed 27 out of 36 VERY liberal judges, several of whom were members of radical homosexual rights groups.

Romney is a gun grabbing, homosexual rights, abortionist.

You know nothing about Romney.

Why would you believe that?

Romney has a steady and reliable behavior pattern of saying he is conservative on an issue and then doing the Liberal Progressive thing on just about every issue that is important to conservatives.

1. He stated he had a Pro-Life conversion, then appointed an extreme Pro-Abortion liberal to a judgeship, and then stated later he would continue to protect all of MA "Pro-Choice" laws and still supported embreoynic stem-cell research.
2. He has always stated that he believed that marriage was between a man and a woman, and then allowed an unconstitutional and illegal ruling by the Supreme Court of MA go unchallenged that allowed Gay Marriage when by the constitution of MA only the Legislature can institute/create laws pertaining to marriage. He did this after being warned by many conservatives and conservative christians about the illegality/unconstitutional nature of the action of the SC of MA and then he lied and stated it was the law of the land. The Supreme Court of MA cannot create laws, they can only rule on existing laws.
3. Romney increased Fees and Taxes $700 million while Governor of MA after promising not to raise taxes in the campaign for Governor. Anyone with a brain knows that fees are just undeclared taxes and to this day he defends this behavior.
4. His Romney care included $50 abortions, and when he was confronted with the documented facts he still lies about it.
5. He or his staff have declared that Romney has always been Pro-2nd Amendment, and yet, he supported the Brady Bill and he IMPLEMENTED his own phony "Assault Weapons" ban.
6. At CPAC he stated "I have always been Pro-Life" and yet you will find You-Tube video after You-Tube video of Mitt Romney stating the exact opposite.

7. At CPAC he stated he was a "Severely" conservative governor of MA, and yet, and just about every issue, he either stated the Liberal Progressive line or implmented policies that were Liberal Progressive in nature.

The list I've given you is only a small list of the lies of Mitt Romney. He does it reflexively.

Why would any serious and sincere conservative believe any word that comes out of his mouth?

No. However the liberal Republican Bush withdrew Harriet Myers after we Conservatives lobbied hard. He replaced her with a GREAT Judge that has upheld our Conservative values. You can ignore that reality. I won't.

Harriet Myers was at worst a flawed conservative, Romney on the other hand, nominated 27 extreme, left-wing, Progressive Liberals out of 36 nominations.

There is no comparison between GWB and whatever his flaws are and Mitt Romney and his sordid, lying, left-wing, Progressive Liberal record, especially on judicial nominations.

Legal analysts say candidate Romney is different from Gov. Romney.

Liberty Counsel Action Vice President Matt Barber said Romney’s appointments were constitutional “living document” poster children.

“Many of Romney’s appointments were not only liberal, not only Democrats, but were radical counter-constitutionalists. How on earth can we expect that, as president, he would be any different?” Barber asked rhetorically.

“Actions speak louder than words, and Mitt Romney’s actions as governor scream from the rooftops that he cannot be trusted with this most important of presidential responsibilities.”

Barber cites two specific examples of Romney’s radical appointments.

“As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney not only failed in this regard, he appointed a number of very liberal, if not radical, ‘living, breathing’-minded judges to the bench,” Barber said.

“Two that come to mind were extreme homosexualists Marianne C. Hinkle and Stephen Abany,” he said. “They both had a long history of pro-gay activism, yet Romney didn’t hesitate to put them on the bench.” “These are people who outrageously believe the postmodern notion that newfangled ‘gay rights’ trump our constitutionally guaranteed First Amendment rights,” he said.

Baldwin agreed, citing Romney’s statements about the two requirements he actually used when selecting judges.

“Romney did focus on two criteria: their legal experience and whether they would be tough on crime. In other words, the nominee could be a gay activist or a pro-big government, pro-quota, pro-gun control Democrat Party hack who detests every judicial principle treasured by our founding fathers,” Baldwin said. “But if he happens to be tough on crime and have prosecutorial experience, he gets past the Romney filter. Many of Romney’s nominees fit that description.”

Baldwin added that Romney did have some ideological criteria for many of his nominees:

“It was criteria commonly used by the left. For starters, his nominees were mostly pro-abortion. Indeed, while campaigning for governor in 2002, Romney told the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) that his judicial nominees would more likely protect abortion rights than would those of a Democrat Governor, according to notes from a person attending this meeting.”

Another Romney criteria, Baldwin explained, was “diversity.”

“The other criteria consistently emphasized by Gov. Romney in deciding judicial selections was ‘diversity.’ This is the silly notion that judgeships should reflect the population in terms of race and gender and even sexual orientation, regardless of a person’s judicial philosophy,” he said. “Clearly, the use of diversity quotas demonstrates Romney’s lack of a coherent conservative worldview.”

I'm so sorry, I couldn't be here last night. Unexpected pressing issues.

Hear! Hear! You're right on, DJ! This ugly primary is not yet over, so this is no time to cave or to fall for the media and GOP-E spinmeister rants! Like Jim's tagline reads: "No crying in Rebellion."

Rebel in your primaries. Vote for Newt Gingrich.

Be true to your own conservative convictions. Pray, and put your trust in Him. Just tonight in Lancaster, PA, Newt Gingrich said, (paraphasing) that "We must have a candidate who is capable of telling the truth better than Obama tells falsehoods," [because} "truth always wins."

Please don't lie to yourselves. Romney doesn't have a conservative bone in his body. He's a liar and con artist.

If the GOP-E puts him up against the Marxist liar, none of us win. Liar against a liar. It won't matter which liar wins the election.


Great job, DJ!!! Thanks very much!!!!!

“Harriet Myers was at worst a flawed conservative, Romney on the other hand, nominated 27 extreme, left-wing, Progressive Liberals out of 36 nominations”

That's a stretch. Although she was a born again Christian, she was a former Democrat that had her nomination tanked by an outcry of Conservatives like myself. I won't bore you with a review of her record. You can google it yourself. Heck, search free republic for all of the threads at that time, most calling her words to the effect of a liberal Trojan horse. In my opinion, using her name next to Conservative, even with the prefix “flawed”, is an insult to all Conservatives.

No. I've answered you. see my prior posts on judicial appointment influence.

I'll rephrase for you. I take your point to be that we should never pull the lever for Romney in the general election with Obama because he appointed liberal judges while Governor of a State that has a communist legislature (with no hope of getting a conservative through. Romney's is quoted as stating that he appointed the most conservative justices that he could , given that situation). I disagree with you, DJMacWOW. As we did with Bush in the Harriet Meyers debacle, we have a shot of doing the same with Romney on a national level, particularly with a hopefully a Republican senate. We will have no influence whatsoever over Obama as was seen with the Kagan Sotomyor appointments.

Why get personal?

You don't know me or what I've done these past 40 years for the cause. I've given you facts as well. We have a different opinion. Why take a personal shot? Are you saying that Robert Bork, Marco Rubio Ted Nugent and so many other Conservatives that have come to the same conclusion as me lack intelect or the ability to think? We disagree on strategy. I respect your line in the sand approach. I just think its wrong in this election. By offering up those names, its to show you that I am in good conservative company in reaching that descision. It by no means implies that I blindly follow them and lack a caacity to think for myself.

And do it AGAIN. By offering up these "names" you are trying to influence others with fame. "See? These famous people disagree with you. You MUST be wrong!"

Romney is NOT conservative nor a Republican. List ONE conservative thing he has EVER done.

AGAIN, Romney is the WORST possible choice and he does not have the nomination. He can STILL be stopped.

The way I look at it, I'll do my part to get anyone but Romney nominated.

But if he wins, realistically we'll have three choices -

1) vote for Obama
2) vote for Willard
3) bark at the moon while 1 or 2 are elected

Very unattractive alternatives. 1 is totally out of the question but I don't see why anyone who chooses option 2 or 3 is more cuplable than the other.

As did I in my State's primary. Do the same. However, come November, If its Romney vs Obama, I do see a difference between #2 and #3. There is plenty of information on the Internet in support of this proposition. Do your own research and vote accordingly. However, I think it comes down to who can we influence more? Who do we have a SHOT at influencing more?

Hey Mister DJ, Here's another irrational Fake Conservative person that seems to be espousing my point in an article published on RedState today (I know, they're a left wing rag, right?) - only much better said:

http://www.redcounty.com/content/soyou-don%E2%80%99t-want-vote-romney

So...You Don’t Want To Vote For Romney?

By Rachel Bjorklund (Scribe) on April 17th, 2012

Patriots, it’s pretty inevitable at this point that the GOP will nominate a RINO for president. We’re stuck with the cards in our hand.

I understand the temptation to sit out the election or split off and create our own party. I get it. I really do. But the reality is, if we do that BEFORE November 2012, Obama will win. If we go “all or nothing,” we’ll end up with nothing. That’s the ugly truth. Allowing this man to win a second term is NOT AN OPTION. The future of our Republic is literally at stake!

I know that it’s not much of a choice between Obama and a “progressive” Republican. But there is one crucial difference: Romney can more easily be held accountable by the Tea Party. We have the power to split his party. Obama suffers no such threat from his party, and has no reason to even pretend to pander to Tea Partiers. In fact, he has greater motivation to declare outright war on us.

Romney may not be a conservative, but he’s no dictator, either. I’d rather put up with a pandering flip-flopper than be faced with a hard-core, dedicated Marxist finally unleashed.

If you’re planning on sitting out or doing a write-in in 2012 because you can’t have the candidate you want, just imagine what an Obama second term will look like: more “flexibility” since he’s no longer accountable to the voters, the last vestiges of our constitution swept away, a president ruling by executive order while running roughshod over congress, and the appointment of two more radical supreme court justices who will do everything in their power to rewrite and destroy the constitution for decades to come.

So we have to decide, which is the best strategy for the Tea Party from here on out? Trying to hold a RINO’s feet to the fire in the White House? Or trying to keep a wannabe dictator in check for the next four years?

The most important thing right now is to take back the senate and send a strong conservative majority to congress. We need a legislative branch that is willing and able to stop the out-of-control spending and hold the executive branch in check. Then all that will matter about the White House is who holds the veto pen, the power to appoint judges, and the position of commander-in-chief of the armed forces.

Don’t throw the towel in yet. It took 30 years for the communists to take over the Democrat party. The Tea Party has made amazing headway in only three years (as 2010 proved), given that most of us had never been involved in politics in our lives. We’ve been very successful in taking over the GOP leadership at the local level, and in some places even state level.

It’s going to take at least another election cycle before we can succeed in taking over the GOP at the national level. And it’s going to take a lot more patriots willing to get off the bench, register as PCP’s, rise within the ranks of the GOP, and run for office. We may have to settle for a place holder candidate this time around, but if we play our cards right, it will be the LAST time!

I totally respect him and this site. I just was trying to have a free exchange of ideas among fellow conservatives. After all we can all agree that we want Obama out.

“This thread is about stopping Romney from being the nominee.”

Again, sorry about that. You may want to change the name of your thread. When I read it, “Conservative Choices or Republican Sheep?”, I thought it was an open discussion on Conservative choices, not limited to just stopping Romney. Changing the title might avoid confusion.
