Well, if you want to “sit home,” that’s your right. I won’t be.
As with all political animals,they have to play the game rigged for them to play by the Ruling Class if they want to have a spot in the party they still cling to in vain as an ‘opposition party’ to the Democrats.
Neither Bachman, Cain, Santorum, Newt or Perry are “commie-pinkos’ because they endorsed the Ruling Class pick. They know they have to play by the Ruling Class rules if they want to even have a chance to play the game.
The rest of us however, do not have to play the Game.
We do not have to allow ourselves to be boxed into a corner and force-fed a Ruling Class nominee chosen by Obama, the GOP-e and the Media to lose to Obama in November.
And to hedge their bets that the fundamental transformation of the country will continue unabated, if by some miracle Romney actually wins.... nothing changes and everything Obama has already done becomes permanent and endorsed with the Ruling Class sitting in the cat bird seat with their paws on our money.
End game. The Ruling Class oligarchy in league with the MarxoFascists have played their game well, and we as citizens do not have to play their game at all.
Political animals, well... they will still play the game.
But we don’t have to, and I refuse to knuckle under and vote for the Candidate Obama and the enemy chose to run against.
I NEVER "sit home" on any election day, local, national or otherwise. I've never missed an election since I was of legal voting age.
LOL, I guess you don't recognize sarcasm.
I will be voting AGAINST Obama on November 6th. His only viable opponent - like it or not - looks to be Romney.
If you want to write in Newt or Sarah Palin or whoever, go ahead.
Gosh, for someone who says they don’t care what I do, you sure seem to care what I do.
That's who I'll be voting for as well, ohioWfan, the "Not A Communist" candidate! :-)
Actually I'm kind of... in awe. I'm in awe of a lot of strange stuff I see posted on FR these days. I don't even recognize this place anymore.
Actually, I’ve clearly seen the sarcasm in all of your posts to me this evening. And it’s quite ineffective in convincing me to support a socialist out of abject fear of a different socialist.
You’re seeing things, pal. My only “sarcastic” post to you was in #200.
It's the inevitable turmoil associated with the death throes of a once-great political party.
Nah. Your posts have dripped with it. And the Romney Republican memes that continually, dishonestly, claim that principled conservatives are going to “sit home,” or that they support Obama.
She was a stalking horse. How about Sarah is my friend but allows Ed Rollins to attack her and then only after many days say that Ed was wrong. Plus she hardly hit Mitt except for a few times in the debates when he was clearly the Establishment frontrunner as the non-Romneys rise and fell
Not everyone does what Reagan did! Don’t speak ill of your fellow republicans!
OK, “principled conservative”... who will you be voting for for president on Tuesday, November 6th?
I don’t believe in luck.
if Mitt breaks the 1,144 delegate threshold, he will have won the nomination
TRY to remember how he got there. Most here do! So please stop - he WON nothing - It was GIVEN and BOUGHT. His LIES Attacks Attacks LIES - not to Newt's face - the coward that he is - but with paid advertising daily and his media support and with DRUDGE REPORT bloody Thursday on NEWT got him there. He is more of a thief than a winner! "The thief has come to kill/rob/destroy". Fits mitt to a 'T'.
Were you sleeping through all of this? He has nothing to run on - NOTHING, so he needed to tear down a Patriot, conservative Newt like he did with Sarah, also, conservatives that do have credentials and excellent records. His dirty tactics are KNOWN but they have no limit!
Remember, he has NOT been vetted yet! Obama will take care of that since you/others would rather ignore it.
His dirty tactics are KNOWN and they have no limit! Conservatives will never forget the pre-planned Bloody Thursday and he can't do that to Barry. So then what is slick mitt the backstabber going to do then?? oops, I was just counting on everyone just voting for me? DREAM ON!!
Evil knows no bounds and Romney is one EVIL SOB. Remember he's a backstabber, so it would never surprise if he's not a pawn of the left to keep Barry in office.
Oh you're gonna need a lot of it if you actually think you're going to be elected President in November.
"If, to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disprove, how can we afterwards defend our work? Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest can repair. The event is in the hand of God."
You and others like you are pathetic little turds for your infantile attacks against good people. Stop attacking Jeff Head. This man has served in the military for this great nation(something alot of you armchair general cowards never have), he has been a long time conservative poster here, has written excellent books on the rise of china and the challenge to American dominance, and the man is battling a serious illness. The man knows military hardware and nations strategic force posture, and is the best source for it on FR or pretty much any other forum. People like him dont deserved to be flamed by losers like yourself. This site has gone mad. Zot me if you wish powers that be, but this is over the line.
Is Jeff Romney, you dweb!
You are one who has gone mad! And too thin skinned in your protection over POS mitt. This isn’t your audience, mittbot - hang out in a liberal site for a while.
That's where I stand - do what I know is right and the rest is up to Him. And not to be shaken by what I see because HE sees ALL.
Thanks. It's a good message to close with.
Viable? What in the world makes you think Romney is viable?
Do you REALLY think a pro-choice Mormon is gonna get votes from the Christian Right?
When is the last time that a YANKEE Republican got the Southren vote?
Hey,why not vote for George Washington? He can do a better job dead than Obama or Romney can alive.
No. Not of Romney.
And not like those who are clueless and putty in the hands by dishonorable deceitful ones to be lead astray into the hands of liberals - Mitt used them, also, to put him in office. They would NOT listen but instead mocked true conservatives because of their stupidity.
Untrue, don't set your standard up for defining true conservative. Most true conservatives will be voting for Romney.
However the anti Romney cult, of which you are obviously a member, won't.
That does't make you a true conservative.
It makes you a true _______
The blank is left open to your imagination.
So.. you’ve learned to post pictures? Well bless your little heart.
Neither voting for socialism nor smug nor happy about the s(h)ituation we find ourselves in. Ok. Let's play your metaphor.
The drain (Republic, Economy, etc) is plugged. We had the chance to nominate our best guy, an hnest conservative plumber early on to fix the mess. Instead we kept pushing competitive bidding among them until all the little guys couldn't afford to continue. But the big corporate Mr RINO-Rooter conglomerate in town held out because they have the cash and the discipline and is now the only game in town.
Now there's also a Commie from the City Waste dept who is offering to come out and have "his people" destroy your house and remove all your plumbing and give you free chamber-pots and a wheelbarrow and a shovel.
So you can choose to run off into the woods to get away from the smell. But until we can get some honest plumbers back in the business (the ones this time turned out to be shams didn't they?**) then we merely have the choice of how long we can clear the drains until the next clog (4 years?)....or completely turn our house into a third world cesspool for the next century.
** Which one of these two-faced "conservative" suckups who are now not just caving, but supporting the RINO did we want to be our "principled" leader?
Now THAT’S funny right there.. I don’t care WHO ya are!
If American conservatives want real political influence they must drop the habit of endorsing RINOs against the Democrats.
Otherwise will have RINOs only at the helm of power, and the conservative TV show during primaries that does nothing but damage to the conservative movement.
Learn from Marine Le Pen: grow your own party.
What I am saying is pretty clear. I do not respect your opinion on this. I do not respect a decision to vote for Obama, nor can I respect a person who enables him. I also do not respect a person who believes in Islam. I do not respect a single Occupy Wall Street person. I do not respect Bill Ayers, Eric Holder, Elizabeth Warren or Ahmadinejad or Barack Obama.
You are entitiled to your opinion, as I am entitled to mine.
You are NOT entitled to be respected for your decision.
Obama voters will respect you for withholding your vote, they will even admire you and applaud you.
So you needn't worry about my opinion of you. You've got lots of support. Good for you.
I’m with you.
It's Jean-Marie. Not Marine. Yeah, why don't YOU learn something from Le Pen. Formed "his own" party in NINETEEN SEVENTY TWO.
And what did he do? Corral all the far right wing away from politics giving France 40 years of left vs. ultra-left debates.
And we don't have proportional coalition governments....and frankly...if your attitude prevailed in France, they couldn't have coalition governments there either because you would never form common cause with the "not right enough" people to get anything passed.
I only hope this petulance will wane. The intellectual shock of having supported a “principled conservative” as some kind of “we are the resistance” movement...to then have Newt or Bachmann or Palin or whatever dream candidate turn around and support the guy and the establishment you thought was evil incarnate?
That’s got to take a while to right your head. I don’t trust any of these charlatans. That makes reality easier to take when it hits.
RE: We all knew it didnt we? She was a STALKING HORSE.
Those of us who are not in elected office have more freedom.
Let's face it: Romney beat us. Gingrich, Santorum, Cain, Perry, and Bachmann supporters all have more in common with each other than any of us have with Romney, and now we have virtually the worst possible Republican candidate because we couldn't unify behind a single candidate. We need to stop beating each other up and trying to work to put the conservative movement back together if, as seems likely, Romney loses this fall.
Let's not bash each other when we're going to have to find a way to work together after November.
A word to the people who opposed Rick Santorum: Xzins is correct when he says that “All of the pro-life conservatives EXCEPT Santorum have now endorsed Romney. Rick, the GOP-e wont like you if you dont get with the program and back the Massachusetts $50 babykiller.”
I am all but certain that Santorum will eventually endorse Romney and will be both very shocked and very happy if he doesn't, but as of today, the guy some people liked to attack as a stalking horse for Romney is the last one left **NOT** to endorse him.
Think about that.
As I wrote earlier, political animals have to play the game the Ruling Class sets as their rules and kiss the bungholes and lick the palms of those Masters if they want have a seat at their table.
We citizens do not have to play that game, because it is our votes and money they needed to keep themselves in perpetual power.
Soon however, they will have no need for either from us, because they know what the transformation is going to be, and they decided to play along for power's sake and a crack at all our redistributed money.
So they rigged this election to be a win, win for themselves by getting rid of the 'ball and chain of Conservatives'.
I won't play their game by their rules and hold my nose for the trap they set for me. But then, I'm not a political animal either and I am not beholden to them.
Whats going to be hilarious are going to be the posts when Palin endorses Romney, because she knows Obama is the worst possible outcome. I wonder if she will be called whore and RINO etc. I agree with you. I dont trust any politicians either, any of them. However, I know which one is worse for the country and plans to damage it as much as possible for his twisted marxist ideology and that is Obama. Like I said in a previous post that folks overlooked and never commented on. They are a reason that russia and china endorse Obama for four more years. They love the “flexibility” with our national defense. Only a fool would not see that.
I’ve said all along that they will all endorse Romney at some point. Its just the way things are done.
Duncan Hunter endorsed McCain on a promise then later retracted saying that McCain had broken the promise. However Hunter was leaving politics after that race anyway.
To refresh those memories, let me recount what happened (once again):
After the 2010 TEA Party sweep of the House of Representatives and State legislatures, with Palin leading the charge, the GOP-E panicked and launched a strategy to undermine and ultimately stop her from running for president. They admitted it openly.
And since Bachmann was a pain in Boehner's butt too at the time (particularly with her TEA Party rally on the steps of Capitol Hill), the GOP-E/RNC hatched a plan to try and kill two birds with one stone by convincing Bachmann to run (via her congressional staff) and dilute Palin's TEA Party support. They approached her over the Christmas adjournment (again via her staff) and she agreed in exchange for whatever promise they made to her. Within days, members of her staff appeared in both Iowa and South Carolina and began bad mouthing Palin to state and local Republican chairmen and potential delegates.
Very soon afterward, Bachmann announced her candidacy, but word leaked about what was going on and was documented and discussed ad nauseum both here at FR and elsewhere in the Conservative blogosphere. Bachmann then hired Ed Rollins as her manager and literally within twenty-four hours he attacked, not Romney, but Palin. Bachmann's subsequent silence spoke volumes. Again, this was all discussed and debated on this forum and elsewhere.
In the meantime, Tucson happened, and Palin was crucified by Obama's minions online and in the MSM. The GOP-E saw another big chance to help bury her, and did not lift a finger to either defend or help her, leaving her to dangle in the wind against the vicious Rat onslaught. Palin released her own video statement about Tucson and was again attacked mercilessly for defending herself. She went on to do the Madison rally and then her One Nation bus tour, but something (bad?) happened behind the scenes in late August or early September (when she was primed to announce her candidacy) that compelled her to stay out, and she told mark Levin on October 5 that she was not running.
Bachmann, for her part, ran a fitful campaign and not once attacked Romney during the "debates" (if you can call them that) before suspending it on January 4th of this year, her job done.
It's sad that I have to walk people through this all over again, but apparently I do.
Thanks for the concise recap.
Bookmarked for reference.
I have lived long and expected it..I am a realist..My guys did not make it through the primary..It hurt..
I painfully accept that there’s only one way to get Zero out of the White House..and that’s to vote for the man left standing. I want Obama OUT!
Yep, we agree.
To bash politicians because they endorse the nominee of their party doesn't make sense.
Those of us who are not elected officials or major national political figures have more options.
I’ve talked to my congressman extensively about his endorsement of Romney. All he says is “I’m a second time freshman and if I’m reelected I’ll have more freedom”
I agree with everything that you are saying and its accurate as well
You and others like you are pathetic little turds for your infantile attacks against good people.
- - - - - -
Oh that IS ironic. Attacking good freepers with infantile attacks.
And where were you when Jeff Head was calling other, conservative Freepers Nazis.
Don’t forget the co-religionist factor. It is strong with that group.
And so Aaron, where is Moses and his God? Come let us make ourselves a golden calf and worship at the feet of Ba’al.
And with that request, the Israelites stripped themselves of their gold and ripped the earrings from their daughters ears.
Friend, you are right on target. I actually discount all the blabber, hate, dislike, bad mouthing on this site by Freepers, etc. against Mitt Romney. I always thought this wonderful site was the vioce of conservatism, freedom, liberty and individual effort. To me, there is no difference between the hate and venom of the left or the right, period.
The good news is, these folks that spew hate on this site are in reality, a distinct and tiny minority and mean absolutely nothing in the upcoming election. This real issue in my mind is not Mitt Romney. It is Barack Hussein Obama. Simple, Obama must be defeated for many clearly obvious reasons. End of story. ABO!!!
