Skip to comments.Voting for Romney (D-Mass.): The Worst Mistake a Conservative Could Make
Posted on 04/30/2012 9:14:40 AM PDT by Mozilla
Why am I so passionate today? Well, most readers who visit here know the country is in deep doo-doo. Im here to tell you that voting for Mitt Romney (D-Mass.) will not change that fact and may make things worse. I will explain two things. First, Romney (D-Mass.) is the presumptive Republican nominee precisely because he will do nothing to improve our countrys fortunes. He is the chosen one because he will maintain the status quo. That is what the GOP machine has chosen him to do.
Second, you cannot take over the Republican machine and turn it into something in decent. I have made that statement before, but Im going to describe the machine in greater detail. Keep in mind that this is information I have obtained from current and former GOP insiders. Everyone on the inside agrees that the Party has been constructed so it cannot be taken over. They have also constructed a political system so the political duopoly is very, very difficult to challenge. (Republican insiders HATE political freedom, like so many other freedoms.) Whether thats a good thing or bad thing is a matter of judgment. For conservatives and libertarians its bad. For establishmentarians its wonderful.
Finally I will explain why voting for Romney (D-Mass.) is the worst thing you can do, regardless of whether youre a principals voter or a strategic voter.
If you are not one hundred percent convinced that I am correct in those statements, you absolutely must read the rest of this piece and tell me where Im wrong. I know Im correct, and I can assure you that if you vote for Romney (D-Mass.) it will be the greatest political regret of your life.

You go ahead and campaign for Obama. I’m voting for Romney. I’m trying to save our country. Any conservative that doesn’t vote for Romney is killing our country along with the rest of Obama’s communist cronies. Do I like Romney? No. Do I think he’s conservative. I know he’s Not. But OMG it’s a no brainer. How can anyone even consider not voting for whomever is running agains Obama? I think you are really an Obama supporter anyway...just posing as a conservative to sway people to your side.
It’s come down to Mr. Potato Head, Elmer Fudd, and a cheese or ham sandwich over Obama. A cockroach is in a dead heat with the messiah.
That worked out real well didn't it?
I'd vote for Hillary, Kerry, hell, I'd vote for Edwards if given the chance over the flop-eared P.O.S. that's infesting the WH today.
“No one else is running !
This has got to be the stupidest attitude ever in FreeRepublic.
Newt’s out, Santorum’s out, Paul was never in ...
Yeah, sure Romney sucks, but ANY vote not for Romney is a zero vote.”
ON WHICH planet have you been, when Romney was crucifying Gingrich and Santorum with dozens of millions dollars of slanderous ads, and the active approval of the degenerate GOP establishment?
A vote for Romney would be a betrayal of our conservative principles, dear to FReepers. Obviously, you can spit or don’t have any principle to defend.
I respect that position, but the only way to grab the GOP’s attention seems to be to go for maximum impact. I didn’t come by this decision easily.
Are you nuts?????
Surely you’re not saying that sticking by one’s principles is stupidity. Isn’t that what true conservatism is all about? Living by a set of principles and keeping one’s word “even when it hurts”?
I’m laughing at the fools who so eagerly will drink the poison trap being served to them by the Ruling Class GOP working in League with Obama, who chose Romney as the nominee along with Obama’s MSM.
They are truly an example of dupes, having been so indoctrinated into the system itself, they cannot fathom any other way to deal with the fear of Obama, than to elect the opponent HE and the GOP-e have served them with.
Liberty or death? No. Too few willing to take the same risks our forbears did and think outside the box being served to them by the Crown.
So they, like all dupes will pull the lever for Romney and erroneously think they are saving the country - because that’s the narrative the Ruling Class has established.
Look how eagerly they lap it up, all out of fear of Obama.
If Conservative principles don’t mean a tinker’s damn than political expedience, anyone voting for Romney was never really a Conservative in the first place. Just a closet RINO, willing to bend over for the Marxofascists just like the leadership hacks they empower and then complain about.
They dished it out pretty well too early on. Santorum bashed him daily and viciously (and rightfully so) on Romneycare. It's ridiculous to say the ads had an effect on the way conservatives voted. That's like saying conservative voters were uninformed and stupid enough to be swayed by the ads. How do you explain the conservative vote for Romney in the exit polls?
From your insult laden post I take it you actually believe the Republic will survive four more years of the little bastard commie. ... And of course if it doesn’t, well the detah of tens of millions is of no consequence in your calculus, eh?
As i respect yours. I do believe the maximum impact is to establish a viable 3rd party,perhaps pulling some of the smaller ones together and running for some congressional seats. It must be built. It may only take 2-3 cycles if the candidates are good and not like some that ran under the guise of the Tea Party in 08. Pure opportunists and their performance showed.
I fully understand peoples frustrations. Their desire to get things right as soon as possible. I don’t see how that’s remotely feasible.
It's going to take a lot more than voting for Romney to save the country. But putting him in for four years is certainly going to give us a fighting chance. Obama is already stepping up his rule by executive order. Exactly what do you expect he's going to do in a nothing-to-lose second term? Do you really think Romney is going to get away with what obama is getting away with? Really?
That will never happen, a sitting President will never again, not be the Party nominee when he runs for re-election, if Mitt somehow wins, the GOP is stuck with him for two election cycles.
“Ruling Class”? That’s Marxist terminology.
What exactly does fighting the system entail? Is it something that realistically has a chance to succeed? If so, can it be done by November?
STRATEGIC VOTERS: "My hypocrisy knows no bounds."
Today. Right this minute is when we should be preparing for 2016. Not sitting around grousing about our lack of choice. This is when one holds their nose and chooses the lesser of two evils. Tomorrow. That’s what we fight for. Its what we can build for.
