No. You haven't. You posted some fairy tale with not a fact in sight.
he appointed liberal judges while Governor of a State that has a communist legislature
More fairy tales. And you believe them over facts.
As we did with Bush in the Harriet Meyers debacle, we have a shot of doing the same with Romney on a national level
Tell me what in Romneys history makes you believe this. Give me an action and fact, not a fantasy.
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.
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.
I find it a bit sad, this year would be my first Presidential election to vote in. But if its going down the road it is, I don’t see it worth my time to even bother voting.
It is vitally important to vote for the most conservative candidates in local, state and federal offices. It could mean all the difference in the world.
By no means settle on any one source of info, but this left wing rag (according to some here because they dispense non-anti romney literature) - http://www.redcounty.com/content/why-conservatives-should-support-mitt-romney
I'm not going to rip someone for voting against Romney in the general, but I'm not a 'sheep' for choosing to make that decision. Eric Holder, Cass Sunstein, Kathleen Sebelius, and SCOTUS need to be fired.
This thread is about stopping Romney from being the nominee and to stop broadcasting to the party elite that they control our choices.
So...You Dont Want To Vote For Romney?
By Rachel Bjorklund (Scribe) on April 17th, 2012
Patriots, its pretty inevitable at this point that the GOP will nominate a RINO for president. Were 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, well end up with nothing. Thats 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 its 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 hes no dictator, either. Id rather put up with a pandering flip-flopper than be faced with a hard-core, dedicated Marxist finally unleashed.
If youre planning on sitting out or doing a write-in in 2012 because you cant have the candidate you want, just imagine what an Obama second term will look like: more flexibility since hes 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 RINOs 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.
Dont 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. Weve been very successful in taking over the GOP leadership at the local level, and in some places even state level.
Its going to take at least another election cycle before we can succeed in taking over the GOP at the national level. And its going to take a lot more patriots willing to get off the bench, register as PCPs, 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!

The owner of this site has stated that no one is to campaign for liberal Romney on his site. Respect that.
This thread is about stopping Romney from being the nominee. You have totally ignored that.
However, in order to avoid any further confusion or violate this directive, I'll stop posting on this issue.
“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.
What I posted was very clear.
