Still so hip on voting for the RINO? Not me. FR has dug up enough dirt on him to make him a NO VOTE. Write in a real CONSERVATIVE Allen West and be done with it.

Time the grand old party blue bloods, status quos were taught a lesson, that WE the PEOPLE don't want RINO'S, it is why we are in the shape we are in, always voting for the lesser of 2 evils to stave off for a short time the EVIL Marxism that is creeping up on us.

From now on I am an Independent. IF the person who is running is a real CONSERVATIVE I will vote for them, if not, Porky Pig makes a good write in.

The once grand old party has become the party of stick it to the little guy, and give me a bigger piece of the pie! Premium pay and health care, while we get RATIONED Medicare. Try cutting your own pay, and go on BC/BS like the rest of America and pay payments for your health care, and quit sight seeing..vacationing on our dime!

And stop gutting the Military’s pay and retirement before you GUT YOURS!

You are not getting your butt shot at, maimed, or killed, yet you make 5 times what the average Military person makes and gets RATIONED health care when they reach 65 to go with their RATIONED Medicare which you plan on raising both of their cost. BUT NOT YOURS! And your pay will keep going up, far beyond the tiny COLA’s you give granny or the retired Military.

The nominee will be deciding on a VP nod at some point.

That will be the point at which, opposition will be decided.

Let us hope, the choice is one who will unite the vote.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I have an idea how to stop the “establishment candidate” from ever winning the nomination again. But, before I prescribe the cure, let me give the diagnosis.

First of all, we’re blaming the establishment for outsmarting us, Gail. They put up one person. We put up 10. And everyone of our candidates leave much to be desired as a quality candidate themselves. (But, we won’t go there now.) Why? Because the quality Conservatives (Palin, DeMint, Ryan, Rubio, West, Jindal....) did not run. Guess who’s going to be the nominee. We must take our share of the blame for this. We Conservatives proved this go ‘round that we are very divided ourselves. The Santorum, Bachmann, Cain and Gignrich forces tried to destroy each other every chance they had. Karl Rove and company loved it but our Conservative friends’ egos would not let anyone relent and say, “Look, lets all of us sit down and choose ONE Conservative candidate for the Primaries and to take on Obama in the Fall.” No, we chose to fight, bicker and destroy; and then after it’s all over, blame the establishment. How does the satirical quote go? “We have met the enemy, and he is us.” We Conservatives can be our own worst enemy. Let’s take our share of the blame and teach ourselves a lesson.

The true Conservatives and Tea Party folks need to have their own mini-convention a month before the Primary process begins, and settle on ONE conservative candidate and get behind him/her and support them and NOT divide up the Conservative vote between 10 people and let the RINO ride in to take the nomination as has happened ever since Reagan.

It worked so well with McCain...Sarah had the battle won, he lost it with his fence setting and can we all get along, reach across the isle views. Well we have the worse in romney, he is NOT a CONSERVATIVE! He is the LESSER OF 2 EVILS. Which is still EVIL.

I know this all to well, we have it here every election in TN. 2 conservatives will run, and 1 moderate, neither conservative will back down even if one is polling less well, so we get the moderate...i.e. current governor Bill Halsam. And on the local level the gop will NOT run a candidate in a majority dem district, so we have no one to vote for. For the first time we have redrawn district lines, still I have no chance to vote out the demRATS who own the district for life.

I live in such a district and no chance to move out. House is paid for, and can’t get a fair price for it, or I would be moving out of Shelby County entirely, they can keep their demwits and high taxes and high crime rates.

One opponent with the Tea Party in tow is exactly how Dick Lugar was unseated in Indiana. Mourdock sensed weakness and entered the race. The Tea Party voters lined up behind him. Mourdock was not courted by and slated by the Tea Party. Mourdock just read the "tea leaves" and rode the wave of anti-incumbency. In short, it was an accidental Tea Party win. Time will tell if we were duped.

There are enough of us out here to change things but we cannot thrive if we are divided. The real question is how do you unite without formally organizing? If the Tea Party formally organizes, then we will become what we loathe about party politics today.

I’m just saying the most important thing facing us right now, is Obama.

Romney is important also. If he selects someone to the left of himself. Which I’m not sure yet he will do.

If he does he can be replaced next time. But until then, we have what we have.

I don’t like it either, but it is, what it is.

Why not now?
____________________________________________________________

I’ll tell you why not now. Because if Barack Hussein Obama wins another four years in office without having to face the voters ever again, THERE WILL NOT BE A “NEXT ELECTION”. The man hates the fact that the U.S.A. is a Constitutional Republic, built and prospered on capitalistic economics, and he wants to turn it into a European, Socialist State. And, the open mic incident proved that he is in bed with the KGB darling of Russia; Vladamir Putin. THIS MAN IS DANGEROUS GAIL..... We cannot waste our vote this time by writing in Herman Humperdink.

God bless America and please hurry.

and what are we to do with a nominee who appears determined to continue with this imposition of government controlled health care?

It isn’t an “either” “or” situation.

We can fight Obama - but we have to fight for our health care system as well.

That is where we differ:

I see Obama as more powerful, and more dangerous. Far more dangerous.

Willard is the alternative. He’s wishy-washy. He’s for one side or the other side. He’s for this or that.

But the media will only be for him until there’s someone more effective to oppose him.

Let’s be more effective ourselves, at picking his next opponents, as well. Until then let’s stop giving the victors the coins.

Win the victors, and have a better competitor next time.

But GET RID OF OBAMA NOW!

What’s wrong with the Tea Party organizing, if it’s for a good cause? Organization is much better than chaos. Our Military Commanders demand organization. Even God thinks order is better than chaos: Genesis 1:2-3 “...and the earth was without form and void (in a state of Chaos)” and God moved in on the situation and said “Let there be light.”

We don’t need the Tea Party to “organize” into a Third Political Party. That would further divide the Conservative Movement. But, organize, infiltrate, conquer and be victorious.

I give up Gail. I know when to hold ‘em and I know when to fold ‘em. I’m folding this hand with you. I’m 64 years old and my years on this earth are not all that many; 20 at most maybe. I will not have to live in Barack Obama’s USSA (The United Socialist States of America) as long as your children and my grand children will. So, you go ahead, vote Third Party or write in Mickey Mouse and give us four more years of the Marxist, B. Hussein Obama so he can destroy this beloved Republic. This conversation between us is OVER!!!

I could support and participate in organization centered around slating a conservative candidate for primaries. Where we have had one conservative candidate, we have enjoyed pretty good success. What I fear is wherever as a society we "organize" invariably we find ourselves surrounded by charlatans seeking personal gain and power.

Whether we are voting for the RINO because he is (again) the best we can get from the GOP, or writing in a sincere or protest vote, we need to vote this year. Whether we are stuck with the current big government socialist for four more years or taking a chance on the big government liberal from Massachusetts, we need a conservative Congress to restrain the executive branch's expansionary impulses. If you care enough to read FR, you need to care enough to vote for the House, the Senate, and the rest of the down ticket races. Perhaps we're wrong about Romney and he really is the "severe" conservative he claims to be, in which case a conservative Congress will help him to do the right thing to maintain freedom. Perhaps we're right, in which case whether he wins or loses we will need a conservative Congress to restrain either Obama or Romney. This year, it's the House and the Senate that are our bulwark against fiascoes like Stimulus, TARP, Cash-for-Clunkers, ObamaCare, and the rest of the massive waste that will overburden our children and grandchildren.

1) Vote!
2) Bring conservative friends to the polls so they will also vote!
3) Volunteer as a poll watcher or as a worker for our House/Senate candidates or for the local party!

I've had to stuggle with this, too. But it is now extremely clear:
This whole thing is not about Mike Leavitt, or the nominating mess,
or Obamacare, or excessive spending, or racism, or Christanism
vs Mormonism.

It is about this, plain and simple:

1. Vote for The Marxist who is entrenched

OR

2. Vote for the NON-Marxist that might win

This is a WAR, not an ELECTION!

Fight for the wrong flag and you die! Stars or Sickle?

(A vote for a non-Marxist that cannot win is 2 votes:
1 for the Marxist who could win and
1 against the non-Marxist who might win.)

I’ll say this one more time.

The choice is stark.

It is clear.

It is vital.

We must get rid of Obama. He is an evil person who has surrounded himself by evil people.

He make no bones about his intent to turn the country into a socialist country.

Don’t kid yourself that we can stop him with a conservative congress. He will flout the congress, appoint evil people at will and make laws by executive decision.

A lot of you don’t like Romney.

He’s talking to the right people and saying the right things. I will put my faith in him.

The rest of you are living in some kind of dream universe.

I’m not sure what you think will happen if you succeed in electing Obama (which is what you will be doing if you don’t support Romney)

Some of you seem to think an angel will descend from the sky or maybe Alaska and become our candidate. That won’t happen.

Some of you think that, by gosh, you will show those nasty middle of the road Republican squishes that they can’t select our candidate and continue on their way.

You will show them nothing. You will only hurt the country and yourself.

Progress is being made and you can’t even see it. There was no tea party a few years ago. Now there is and it’s extremely strong.

Tea party candidates are winning elections all over the country.

A Republican president ... even one you don’t quite trust ... combined with a more conservative congress can turn this country around.

I know most of you are good people who have just let your emotions take over your brain.

You have five months to wake up. I pray you will.

You find another fight. It’s not like you’re fighting for anything by supporting Romney. Just more of the same.

Besides, Mittens didn’t back McCain/Palin in 2008. He used his people to actively sabotage them so Obama could take the Presidency. Guess I’ll just pull a Romney myself, though I’ll be honest about it.

Romney supports every major leftist initiative, including ObamaCare as this article shows.

WTF is the difference you’re asking for us to vote here? That Romney at least doesn’t want to destroy the country, but is still going to bankrupt us and run us into the ground anyway?

I don’t get it. You’re dreaming here with your false hope that Romney, by virtue of not being Obama, is better than Obama. If anything, Romney is more dangerous, since Republicans will not oppose him the way they oppose Barack Obama, which really isn’t that much either.

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.” Patrick Henry June 26, 1788. And as Dr. Franklin said they gave us a REPUBLIC IF WE COULD KEEP IT.

Well we are about to LOOSE IT! By keeping on voting the lesser of 2 evils!

It is not ME who needs to wake up, I’ve read the articles posted on the RINO, it is the lovers of the lesser of 2 evils who need to WAKE UP and stop selling out the USA to the lesser of the 2 evils.

They have none now. Thanks to being conned into voting for the lesser of 2 evils for more than 2 decades now, by the former grand old party elites who do not want change in DC, they like their big pay checks, vacations on the tax Slaves dime, and premium health care for life with big fat retirements.

That disgraced 1 term weiner makes twice in 1 year in retirement than my husband who spent 20 years UNDER PAID in the Navy starting as an E1, plus weiner has platinum health care for life, while we have RATIONED health care and fewer doctors to accept it, and a retirement that is shrinking each year due to NEW taxes. While his isn’t.

NO my eyes are wide open and I am informed by FR to RINO ROMNEY and his slow death ways.
