Huh?

So if Obamah is defeated without your help, you will still be disappointed?

I'm not a Romney supporter by any stretch of the imagination but I sure as hell will vote for whoever is running against him on the Republican ticket.

And don't blame Texans for Romney's nomination, we don't even vote in Texas until May 29.

I'll take an America-Loving Rino over an America-Hating Communist any day.

But you ARE givin' it to Romney ... ain'cha' ?

We single voters do what we can, and the states end up where they end up.


RINO or no ... will you vote ... and whether you do or don't ... what will you do if Romney beats ozero?

(fat chance, imo)

No, I will not be disappointed if a socialist, any socialist, is defeated. I definitely prefer that. The only way I will not be disappointed is if a Constitutional conservative is victorious. A socialist defeating a socialist does not increase or decrease my disappointment level at all. It does not appear a conservative will win the 2012 raise, so I am already prepared for disappointment.

I'll take an America-Loving Rino over an America-Hating Communist any day.

Please define "America-Loving" for me. Does America-Loving include raising taxes 300%? Implementing Cap-n-Trade? Drinking the global warming kool-aid? Banning your guns? Bailing out companies? Advancing gay marriage? Killing babies? I'm confused as to what exactly "America-Loving" means to you. These are all Romney positions; what makes him "America-Loving", the "R" behind his name? Seriously?

“Ruling Class”? That’s Marxist terminology.

So that makes it off limits to anyone else? Try reading Codevilla's American Spectator piece, America's Ruling Class -- And the Perils of Revolution -- a piece that Limbaugh devoted an entire show to, with approval. (Even if you don't care for Rush, you really can't call him a Marxist!)

You're right, why even go to the polls.

Let's just give Obamah another 4 years to fundamentally change America.

Geezzzz

Well, that's just dumb. But if you want to stay home, that's your call. I'll go to the polls and cast my votes ... for the conservatives on the ballot. Because if I vote for the liberals with the liberals, I become no better than a liberal. And I have too much common sense for that. Maybe you do to.

fish hawk:

If Slick Willard, the utterly unprincipled Wall Street marionette, is elected, get back to us when he makes his first SCOTUS appointment, when the brainless GOP Senate Caucus votes the nominee onto the court as "one of ours" and the nominee naturally turns out to be somewhere to the left of such stellar GOP previous nominees as John Paul Stevens, David "Swish" Souter, William Brennan, and Herod Blackmun. Thanks, nice work! If that's the best you've got, why bother with politics at all? At least Republican Senators will TRY to stop any Obamanations appointed to vacancies and may even succeed.

I am no longer a libertarian and would not vote for pot smoker, pro-abort Gary Johnson on a bet but the rest of this article is right on the money.

His nasty campaign tactics will be fruitless against Obama, because the Obama campaign will be relentless in every way including Mitt's mormonism.

Do you think Obama would be any less relentless and dirty against a "true conservative" such as, say, Newt Gingrich?

No doubt we have an enormous problem. Trouble is, I don't see any of you solving it. Not voting or voting a write in is no solution so hey, some of you speaking out, how about telling us what your solution is to not get Obama reelected. Not voting for Romney does absolutely nothing. NOTHING BUT HELP OBAMA.

It all seemed quite apparent by reading in between the lines of how everything went down, especially the massive, inexplicable bias towards Romney by most of the “conservative” media.
That kind of thing does not come from people who altruistically want the “best” candidate. It all seemed quite apparent by reading in between the lines of how everything went down, especially the massive, inexplicable bias towards Romney by most of the “conservative” media. That kind of thing does not come from people who altruistically want the “best” candidate. It comes from a coordinated and well-funded propaganda machine...

Interesting coincidence. The mormon church has a VERY "coordinated and well-funded propaganda machine".

It would be interesting to know how many "volunteers" of this machine are involved behind the scenes with the Romney campaign. Of course, it will be well hidden as was the Prop 8 involvement of mormon leadership. Tax exempt status, donchaknow.

I don't think any of this will defeat Obama though. However, the mormon church stands to gain much in the way of credibility with Mitt's campaign...or, alternatively much unwanted exposure of the inner workings of the LDS Corporation.

The losers will be conservatives and Christians of all faiths.

Ruling class vs. Country class is language from a brilliant American Spectator article and book by Reagan official Angelo Codavilla. Secondly, if you join such stellar intellects as are ohhhhh sooooo Nervous Nelly worried about “class warfare,” please explain why “class warfare” is perfectly OK when waged by the elites against ordinary folks but a danger to civilization when ordinary folks retaliate and stick up for themselves.

I see you overlooked my comment that "Regardless of the pandering of SOME religious leaders, there are many Evangelicals who will refuse to pull the lever for him. The demonization by Mitt of the other Republican candidates will come back to bite him in the butt."

I, for one will remember his attacks on Perry, Rick and Newt when I enter the voting booth and I believe that many will see attacks by Obama on Mitt as "what goes around, comes around."

I understand your points re Romney's liabilities and agree with them, but my point that Obama would have waged a no-hold-barred, relentless, dirty, and dishonest campaign against any "real conservative" still stands.I favored Newt but as we all know, Newt has baggage that Obama would have made full use of.It would not have swayed conservatives, but with women and independents?

And this is all the Romney camp has to campaign on. To insult, ridicule, trash and project their own liberal trollism on principled Conservatives.

I marvel at the abject willful dissonance of the brainwashed and fearful who ignore the fact Romney was served to us by both the Ruling Class Establishment AND the Obama regime. They demand you drink what is being dished out, or they will blame you for the consequences the Ruling Class decided in advance for you.

The scaremongering and trollism is not going to work. You are welcome to pretend you have a choice and practice insanity. The rest of us grew up, repented and and are employing other tactics rather than be slaves of the establishment for our diminishment.

If I may, your reply prompted some thoughts in rebuttal:

You believe the voting rights will survive four more years

I do not think any of us have any illusions about what Obama will do in the next four years. He will demonstrate himself an overt enemy to our very existence. Then the question will become, will be do as our forebears did, or go quietly whimpering into the night because we are stuck playing by THEIR new rules and order?

But an enemy from within our own camp who shares the same record and positions as Obama, is near impossible to justify resistance or rebellion to after he is given authority by those whom he has already signaled he will betray.

I most adamently disagree and I have clear indications that the final collapse is already being arranged

We're already aware of that intended goal. We suspect Romney and the Ruling Class are as much a part of that as Obama is.

I'm sure you're familiar with the Biblical passage of 'If my People, who are called by my name ...'

Been screaming that message to deaf ears since 2003.

We The People spit on that long ago and now we are fending off evil we could not have imagined rising to control this once great country.

This people chose the consequences they are now faced with. The church willingly lost the culture and compromised with evil for the sake of a Satanic lie told to them by the very enemies seeking to destroy the country and transform it's foundations.

How does voting for a similar evil lessen the consequences?

Milt may buy US more time to repent.

We have been given that chance time and again. 9-11 should have been a wake up call as to what God will allow to happen to this country if we did not DO II Chroniicles 7:14.

Our repentance was non-existent. In fact we tossed God's Commandments from the public square just 2 years after 9-11. Who is to say Obama and Romney are not the Judgment we deserve? This people continue to choose leaders who compromise with sin and give the people a replacement for God in provisions and charity. Even our Patriarchs were wise enough to know and understand that they were suffering the tyranny of King because of sin, and the pulpits were aflame with repentance and Awakening long before the war of Independence began.

Today, it's difficult to even get a church to commit to doing Matthew 28:19-20 when so many of them are working to get along with a debased culture to keep offering plates full. Isaiah 58:1 does not even enter into the mindset of the church leadership, much less the political leadership. Voting for Romney is simply more compromise with those things anathema to God and our foundations.

Barry will crush US if we allow him to remain in power.

We nothing. The Ruling Class made that determination this year by assassinating every Conservative running in league with Obama himself, in order to foist a losing nominee upon us to make Obama's "re-election" appear to be legitimate.

Our votes are the last resort we have

And there is your mistake, right there. You've made your vote idolatrous before God. Prayers should have been our first and last resort. Instead of turning to God to solve our national problems, this people have turned to men.

If we will not be governed by God, we will be ruled by the tyranny of men.

Here we are.

Voting against little barry commie is an exercise of sovereignty, to buy US time to change the direction of this nation or perish.

This was insisted on and followed by many of us in the last several election cycles, especially in 2008. I'm done practicing insanity. I have repented of my sin of compromising with lesser evil for expedience's sake when the fruits show without question - evil continues unabated in our culture.

Fix the culture and we will get the leaders we deserve.

Short of that, tyranny is our lot, as has been the way of God's wayward people since time and memorial. I have to give account of God's laws being followed rather than expedience for my own skin and survival, which I fear most of you voting for Romney have succumbed to.

Hillary Clinton qualifies as "Anyone But Obama". Would you vote for her if she ran on the Republican ticket? No difference between her and Romney except that she is less inept and Romney has better hair. But as for political positions, point for point, they are nearly a match. It takes more than a capital "R" behind someone's name to make them a conservative and worthy of a conservative's vote. Voting straight ticket when the candidate is a stealth democrat is just plain unwise.

If Romney does indeed become the Republican nominee, lots of Freepers like myself will likely join the Constitution Party (unless there is a similar and better known party that represents us on the ballot I am currently unaware of) and do our best to defeat both the liberals, Obama and Romney, in November. That's pretty much how the Republican Party replaced the Whigs Party in the 1850's. And heartfelt conservative people such as yourself are welcome to join us at any time. You will feel right at home with a party that actually represents your values, and it will be such a relief not having to constantly battle your own team for them to "do the right thing". But lets wait to see if the Republicans follow through and spit on conservatism first.

We’re Conservatives first and foremost, NOT Republicans.

Party loyalty can get stuffed considering what the Ruling Class leadership of the GOP has done to Conservatives. They made a pact with Obama and the Marxists, acted on it and went to war on Conservatives.

You’re insane to assume principled thinkers will support Obama’s chosen opponent to lose to him in November.

That is just asinine!

You and those like-minded will be throwing all the good Conservatives in the House & Senate under the bus.

Conservative T.E.A. Parties helped elect a lot of new Conservatives to the House & Senate and this year there is a good chance to take the Senate.

But screw them, the hell with them. ...you would prefer they work with Barack Obamah who would veto everything they send him.

Yeah, that's great plan.

Pls tell me you're not a Paulbot.

Believe me, I feel your pain, but your way does nothing to help those fighting the good fight in the House & Senate.

You have to admit that a lot of good could be done with a Republican House & Senate working with a Republican President.

You are voting for a liberal ... and we're the ones throwing good Conservatives under the bus? Bizarro World.

You have to admit that a lot of good could be done with a Republican House & Senate working with a Republican President.

A lot of good could be done with a Conservative congress working against Obama. A lot of bad could be done with a RINO congress working with Romney. A rebirth of our Founders' vision could be done with a Conservative congress working with a Conservative President. That's where I'm aiming.

Pls tell me you're not a Paulbot.

No. I'm not a Ron Paul guy. I started this race willing to support Bachmann, Cain, and Santorum. I'd have supported Perry if he had lived up to the hype. With a brilliant VP pick, I'd support Gingrich. That's pretty flexible, and as flexible as I can get. I will not pull the lever for a candidate that is better suited with a "D" behind name. I'd consider voting libertarian only as a protest vote to make establishment heads spin. It appears the GOP is poised to kick conservatives to the curb, so I'm shopping for a new party. So far the Constitution Party looks like a good home.

Believe me, I feel your pain, but your way does nothing to help those fighting the good fight in the House & Senate.

I know you do. And I know you think you are doing the right thing and that I am in the wrong. Your heart is in the right place so I am not offended. But I've watched far too many election cycles proceed with a vote for the lesser of two evils only to see the next administration slide that much further into the abyss. That mentality is what has brought us here today. Insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly expecting different results. I've experienced enough to recognize the pattern. I'm smart enough not to expect different results. I'm working toward a course correction. And ... just as our Founders did ... I understand it will be a terrifying and difficult undertaking. But onward we go.

Conservative T.E.A. Parties helped elect a lot of new Conservatives to the House & Senate and this year there is a good chance to take the Senate.

Conservative TEA party groups shouted at the White House "Can you hear us now"? Clearly the GOP(e) did not. I'll continue lending my voice and talents to the TEA party. I will support the TEA party candidates. Clearly this does not include Romney. I will not provide the RINO's a weapon (party loyalty) to use against the TEA party candidates in Congress.

So how is it that little barry bastard commie is not a weapon against the TEA party candidates in Congress? And with the media squarely and irrevocably sold out as the propaganda vehicle for the little barry bastard commie, how do you suceed by returning the bastard to the White House, Ereic Holder to the JUST US department, and perhaps four SCOTUS judges to the bench? FRiend, get real.

If he does it will be partly on the shoulders of non thinkers like you

Nope. Smirk all you like at those of us who recognize Romney as a loser.

Ron Paul has just announced that he will stay in until the end and that he may not endorse Romney.

Let's move on. I hear you and feel your passion.

...and actually agree with most of your points.

Would a Conservative VP pick sway you?

Mutt & the RNC know they do not have the support of the Republican Party's Conservative base.

It will be interesting who they decide on should Romney become the nominee.

I'll be voting for Newt in the May 29 Primary here for what that's worth.

Come Nov, I'll be working for the defeat of Barack Hussein Obama II.

RINO or no ... will you vote ... and whether you do or don't ... what will you do if Romney beats ozero?

Voting 3rd party - Former Republican VA rep Virgil Goode (Constitution Party, 3rd largest party)

Btw, the 3rd party doesn't do any worse than the 2nd party...so if Romney loses, you'll have wasted your vote.

What will I do if Romney wins?

Pray for the pre-born at risk under a Romney-run healthcare and a bully pulpit that encourages parents to give their offspring to "research."
Pray for a nation at risk with our most gullible, lack-of-discernment POTUS that we've EVER had. [If he believes he was spirit-born on another planet/star...that kind of sums up what I mean]
Pray for the taxpayers at risk as Romney has run roughshod over them, track record-wise.
Pray for the spiritually vulnerable at risk. (For example, see my tagline)
Pray to keep the Mormon "prophet" from making Romney his personal political puppet.
Pray for a new president who isn't a Dem; because I think once we have so many Christians communicating to God that it's "OK" to elevate idolatry (Romney and other temple Mormons believe they are "gods in embryo" on their way to full-grown godhood as rival, competing gods of THE God), then this nation -- having placed its first counterfeit god into the White House...
...beyond all the other reasons God already has for judging it -- becomes even more ripe for God's temporal judgment...
...it wouldn't surprise me for God to remove any hedge of protection from terrorists & other countries' hostilities + bringing increased economic judgment.

IOW, if God's wrath is poured out on this country...I won't simply point to the "pagans" as magnets for divine lightning...the world will always be the world. But when God's people (Christians) act like the world, I would think that would get God's special attention, as the Old Testament shows again & again.

You choose to post a reply to a post I made to Colofornian

Yeah, that would be because FReepers is a discussion forum for the Conservative ideology. 'Forum' being the operative word there. Maybe you missed it?

and you think that makes you appear 'objective'?

I never made the claim to be objective. I'm not a journalist who has to lie in order to cover a liberal-Left bias.

You smell like a stealthy but persistent obamanoid.

That would make your olfactory senses as dull as your judgment and biblical acumen, not to mention your sense of discernment is more than off the wall wrong.

So in your mind anyone who does not support the liberal called Romney is a liberal troll....you do realize that makes no sense.

So how is it that little barry bastard commie is not a weapon against the TEA party candidates in Congress?

He is an opponent on the field in front of our friends in Congress. He is a known combatant with his own arsenal. "Party Loyalty", however, is not one of his weapons. I doubt he'll convince our TEA party friends to rubber stamp his liberal agenda for sake of party unity as Romney could.

how do you suceed by returning the bastard to the White House, Ereic Holder to the JUST US department, and perhaps four SCOTUS judges to the bench?

The opportunity for success was chisel'd away as Bachmann, Cain, Santorum, and now Gingrich were driven out of the race. Even should a liberal with an "R" behind his name defeat a liberal with a "D" behind his name (unlikely), I still don't call it "success".

And when the liberal with an "R" behind his name makes Supreme Court appointees in the same vein as he's made judicial appointments in his home state (75% liberal) it is even further from success as it is done under the "republican" banner. You fear Obama's appointments? Have a look at Romney's. There is no difference and that's the reality of it.
