This entire situation with the GOP candidates/Romney/”Conservatives” on Free Republic has marked a milestone in my life. I now consider myself an elitist.
Why? Because when so many self proclaimed ‘conservatives’ will put everything they claim to believe in on the back burner and abandon the concept of right and wrong entirely in the name of ousting Obama (like voting for/supporting a man who is by cash, word and deed pro-abortion), there is no longer a point in trying.
America cannot be saved because the majority of Americans, and most tellingly, self proclaimed ‘conservatives right here on Free Republic, no longer believe in the principles and values the country once represented. Support for Romney shows that. If you vote for a person, you are voting to give him the power to act on his beliefs, whatever they are. Period. People can make all the excuses they want. That’s all they are. And people who deny reality are fools.
I, and others here are not. We retain both the ability to tell right from wrong and the desire to uphold the principles and values that being a Conservative American once stood for. That makes me better than a person who will throw it to the wind for a fantasy.
I stated on prior threads that any of these so called conservatives, including the ‘powers’ of the Republican party, who support mitt are demonstrably going against the very political platform they claim to believe in. So be it. Let them excuse and self congratulate. Let them chant slogans and look down their noses at those of us not choosing to follow their lead into the septic tank. I’ll sleep well knowing my vote will be a vote for what America once was. Theirs will be a vote in support of a liberal, no matter how they spin it. Because they either lack the intelligence or the personal integrity to do otherwise.
The facts of Mitt Romney are out there for all to see. We here on FR know more than most what he is. That any of us would vote for that, well... that’s why I/we are better.
Newt stayed in to long. Had he got out Rick Santorum might have been able to beat Mitt.
But this is the establishment we are dealing with. They can and will destroy anyone just like the left does.
with Newt gone it’s Mitt by default. The media can now unload on Mitt and take it from a 50/50 race to a 40/60 race in Obama’s favor.
It is IMPERATIVE that conservatives work tirelessly to elect the maximum number of conservatives to the House and the Senate....otherwise your words are meaningless
Exactly. And so well stated - right to the point! These 'so called' conservatives here, and including those *powers* that were elected on their rhetoric are not serious voters, only loud and I doubt they are even capable of thinking that far, the *powers* too politically hungry that they became sellouts who don't take their own beliefs seriously or don't have beliefs that represent this country. And I don't care what they say or how many times they say *GOD* their actions tell the real story what's really WITHIN them - evil - to sellout out our 'one nation under God'.
I now consider myself an elitist
Well I haven't changed but I consider them haters of God, Family, Country. And they picked their candidate accordingly. There is no God/Family/Country in a bishop of a cult, same sex marriage, pro baby killer, socialistic style healthcare candidate.
I could not agree more.
