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!!

I’m 100% ok will agreeing to disagree. Your vote is your vote. You have your motives and I have mine. That’s the beauty of it.

Regardless I know God is ultimately in charge. It gives me the freedom to vote they way I think HE would vote. :)

How are my rationalizations growing ridicules? If you are talking about the advanced security clearances in the military my claim is exactly rational. If you had ever had one, undergone the background checks, and taken the repetitive mandatory classes you would know this. These points were not subtle, they were pounded into us.

What you are missing is an understanding of SW Pennsylvania politics. We're very union, blue collar and Catholic. My own county has about a 2-1 edge in Democrat registration.

Armstrong County, where Tom Smith is registered, is even worse. Still, McCain-Palin won both counties, ours by 59%.

If you want to compete for local government contracts, don't want your property tax assessment jacked up, or risk having your voter registration lost, the safe thing to do is register Democrat.

Last election, we swept every row office Democrat out of office for the first time since the Eisenhower administration. As a result, I just changed to GOP registration.

Armstrong County is not quite where our county has progressed just yet.

What does free speech have to do with ANYTHING?

Leftists always love coming on FR and complaining about not having free speech.

Free Republic is PRIVATE PROPERTY and there is NO SUCH THING AS FREE SPEECH ON PRIVATE PROPERTY.

Why don't you go to whatever short-lived RINO site the anti-FReepers are currently frequenting and sing Kumbaya with them.

“The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion." Edmund Burke

This delusion Burke spoke of has been the historically dominant theme of mankind throughout the ages: if there's a problem, government will fix it. Freedom has been the rare exception. Even now, although it is clear through history up to the present that socialism is an utter failure and disaster, nevertheless, societies, including American society, continue to gravitate toward it.

Why? Why would people in the freest country in the world throw away what others (immigrants and patriots) have lost their lives to have here? Well, I’ve come across a couple videos of Milton Friedman which I think shed light on this question and, IMO, well worth the time to listen. Links below.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgyQsIGLt_w&feature=related
(@ 2:35 – “Private enterprise and the free market has no press agents whereas the government and the Federal Reserve Board has a great many press agents.”)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RzGHvlltlE
(@ 17:00 – “We didn’t live in a paradise, but there’s no period in human history when the ordinary man had as great an improvement in his lot in life as in the 19th century in the United States when the government was of trivial importance.
@20:22 – “The maintenance of a free society is a very difficult and complicated thing and it requires a self-denying ordinance of the most extreme kind. It requires a willingness to put up with temporary evils on the basis of the subtle and sophisticated understanding that if you step in to try to do something about them you’ll make matters worse.

Send the RNC a loud message, change your party affiliation NOW, regardless of how you vote in NOV. They need to know we are fed up with their failures. Send a copy of your revised registration form to the RNC and tell them NOT ROMNEY.

How many times must Jim make it clear that Free Republic is not supporting Romney?

Free Republic is a privately owned, independent site, solely funded by freely given donations from its membership. "Free speech" is at the discretion and the discrimination of its proprietor, so long as the "free speech" keeps within the principles of the foundations of Free Republic: God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty Conservatism!

FWIW, you're right, that the Marxist has a much more evil background than Romney, but their policies and positions are identical and Romney, if elected, will be the enemy within. Both are sociopathic liars.

Only God can help us. Pray non stop.
