Howdy everyone!!

Looks like a man who has no conservative accomplishments whatsoever (actually, no REPUBLICAN accomplishments whatsoever) is going to get the GOP nomination. A man whose record virtually matches Obama's in every respect, right down to his very own government mandated socialist compulsory health insurance program.

What were they thinking? It's going to be an interesting election season, but then we live in interesting times.

To the RINO GOP:

I'm not going to campaign for this phony empty suit. Not going to cheerlead for a man with an abortionist, homosexualist, statist record. Cannot possibly vote for him. But y'all gotta do what y'all gotta do. I'm not going to stand in the way of dumping the Marxist.

FR is going to live to fight another day!!

To our loyal conservative FReepers:

We are making slow but steady headway with our FReepathon. One percent per day keeps the 404 away!! Let's keep 'er going!!

Please keep those donations coming in folks. No matter who gets the nomination, or who gets elected, we conservatives are going to need FR more than ever to hold their feet to the fire!!

Free Republic is your conservative home on the Net. We are the resistance!!

Thank you all very much for your continuing support!!

Please click the link above to donate via secure server or mail checks to:

Free Republic, LLC - PO Box 9771 - Fresno, CA 93794

Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God!!

Vote wisely. Vote STRAIGHT conservative. Put in a big supply of STATIST-B-GONE and vote 'em OUT!!

Rebellion is ON!!

Agree 100%, need to make a lot of noise between 2012-2016 and hold their feet to the fire, like you say - IMHO, that’s where it’s at, bigtime.

"But y'all gotta do what y'all gotta do. I'm not going to stand in your way."

For many of us, this primary season has been a disappointment. I suspect that for the majority of users and visitors on this site we are now faced with a somewhat similar situation to what we had in the last election.

From my own point of view, it is now important for us to work on every way possible to push Mr. Romney to the right. I think it can be done, if he he knows he will have support. His speech last night showed that he, or at least his staff, has been listening. What remains to be seen is whether we can be influential and not lose sight of the fact that there is nothing more important than removing Obama.

We've all done what we could to push our preferred candidate, now I think we have to do what we can to continue pushing our agenda and promoting our values.

If only Virgil Goode could get enough general election votes to, really, win the ‘12 POTUS race...I don’t believe in not voting for somebody for ‘12 POTUS, but I, already, tried the “vote for the RINO/vote for the Big Government conservative” thing in past elections for U.S. President, which didn’t work all that well. Crap, again, for all conservative voters interested in the race for ‘12 POTUS! As a capitalistic country, the U.S. is vanishing among everybody’s eyes...

Lots of good GOP candidates down ticket worthy of our support. We just slammed the GOP establishment candidate in Pennsylvania last night (U.S. Senate) and handed him a third place finish behind the winner, Tom Smith, who was backed by our SW PA TEA Party group and Sam Rohrer, was backed by the bigger TEA Party group in central and eastern Pennsylvania.

Pretty remarkable when you think about it. Our guy won by a 2-1 margin over the GOP-e candidate even with divided TEA Party backing.

Now, we need to unite behind him and make sure Bob Casey, Jr. is a one-term U.S. Senator and Obama rubber-stamp.

What I don’t understand is how this election can be anybody’s idea of fair. I understand there are still 14 states that haven’t even held their primaries yet—that means people in those states haven’t had a chance to vote yet-—???How can the primary season be OVER???? How can this be fair-—and since when did we start running an election this way? Doesn’t anybody see a problem here??? I would think there would be enough intelligence in this country to see a HUGE problem here...we can’t go on this way.

Agreed. Usually after nomination the candidates “move toward the center”. Romney may already BE there. But I will again repeat I’m voting for “change” in the White House this fall.

Are we truly a center-right country? Time to prove it.

How does a huge state like Calif., for example, wind up almost dead last in the lineup of primaries, when things
are pretty much decided anyway?

The idea is to string out the process and do it bit by bit.
Can’t we have just a few weeks of regional primaries instead
of making it from early Jan. till June? The media would hate it of course.

>>since when did we start running an election this way?

It’s been like this the past few times. I wonder if the NH primary, etc., used to maybe be in March or something and it just kept getting pushed earlier and earlier. Other states also wanted to be early. So next time the NH
primary may be before Christmas. And the last one is
around the summer solstice. Not right.

We have one more chance. If MaMittMitt gets in, we have to be sure we surround him with conservatives in the house and especially the senate.

The prez really doesn’t matter, it’s the people he surrounds himself with.

And THAT CAN BE CONTROLLED!

He CAN’T be allowed to surround himself with mittbots or romneyclones. The senate has to confirm his cabinet nominees, and if we ensure a majority of conservatives in the senate, mitt will get b***hslapped from day one.

There is still a chance. It will simply require more work.

How old are you? Presidential primaries have always been settled by April. I've lived in PA 42 years and have never voted in a presidential primary that mattered.

It's not new.

Fair? That's a different question.
