As Alan Keyes wrote the other day, you cannot fight evil with evil.
If you haven't read it, do yourself a favor:
A Choice Between Satan and Beelzebub (FR thread)
I grieve deeply as I contemplate the fact that millions of Americans are letting themselves be caught in this diabolical snare. As I tried to point out in 2008, the lesser of evils is still evil. No matter how such an election turns out, people content to choose between Satan and Beelzebub have made clear their willingness to let things go to hell. Moreover, the nature of their choice is so clear to them that they practically boast of the passionate hatred that impels them to it. With this practical boast they become the willing, proud accomplices of the very evil they profess to hate.
Im morally certain this is why Christ admonished his disciples to make striving for Gods perfection the standard for their actions, rather than their hatred of evil. He thought it better to fail reaching for this standard than succeed by abandoning ones life to the devils dominion. He thought it better to fail in the worlds eyes while commending ones spirit to God (as he does on the cross) than succeed by casting ones lot with Gods adversary.
A man who for over 30 years of his adult life by his own admission justified the wholesale slaughter of innocent and helpless human life is purely evil and can and did justify anything. Many times.
Romney's entire political life has been a mis-adventure into godless liberal/progressive evil. There can be no denying that he has during his tenure either advocated for or personally enacted nearly the entire godless liberal/progressive agenda. He has succeeded where the Democrats have failed and he has shown them the way. His record of evil leftist doings, rationalizing, justifying, flip-flopping and mealy-mouthed parsing and spinning (lying) precedes him and tells the tale of the man. He has no foundation. No core principles. No Christian values. No moral compass. If ever a man was a godless liberal in the GOP, he is Myth Romney.
If the Republican conservatives in office or in leadership positions or in the so-called conservative media would simply stop rooting for this evil bastard and commit to the TRUTH and stand tall for Life and Liberty now and at the convention, we could chuck this liberal bastard onto the ash heap of history and run a pro-life, pro-liberty, pro-small government conservative Republican that we can all be proud to support over the Marxist usurper. And we would WIN in a Reaganesque landslide!!
Perversely, Romney is just about the only Republican who may actually lose to Obama. Hell, even McCain beat Romney.
Taking the right path is not easy and not popular at this time, but it's the only path.
May we stand on God's side while attempting to save our Republic!!
Cripplecreek nailed it.
Screw You GOP, for Nominating a Progressive Democrat-Lite Statist!

So the righteous solution is...do nothing and let Obama keep up the same ole socialism?
it would appear that both parties are now under the influence/control of the globalist new world order money emperors. Will electing more of what we believe to be tea party conservatives work to prevent little barry commie from finally collapsing the Republic? One hs to hope and pray so! But if these would restrain Obama, why do we presume they would not restrain the other leftist liar, Romney? ... Clearly, the media portrays these NWO operatives as ‘savior’ to the walled off constituencies of each side of the sprectrum they, the NWO, have devised to gather up unattentive voters. Are we beyond a point of being able to take back America? ... To ask the question is to defy the bastards, and dragging every able person tot he polls is our last resort ... well, except the ammo box.
“So the righteous solution is...do nothing and let Obama keep up the same ole socialism?”
How can someone be so obtuse. Jim Robinson (using Alan Keyes) has presented a clear cut situation. Neither Obama or Romney are acceptable. There is NO lesser of two evils.
Please grow a brain....more importantly, grow some REAL values.
Freaking RINO trolls keep repeating that b/s.
Look, pal. Our god-given unalienable (look it up) rights are not for sale to the highest bidder. Our liberty is not negotiable, not subject to debate or compromise. Give me Liberty or give me death!!
You can shove your weak-assed surrender monkey attitude and insults where the sun don’t shine.
What have you 'named' your solution?
'Anyone But righteous' seems to fit and keeping w/your branding. '
I think the line has retreated back to safety. I’m with you, though. I have no intention of giving up. For whatever it’s worth.
But if voting for the lessor of two evils this Nov is an unacceptable course for conservatives then what positive, effective action can we take?
"In disquisitions of every kind there are certain primary truths, or first principles, upon which all subsequent reasoning must depend."

“So the righteous solution is...”
Let’s hear it.
Goode over evil. Pass it on.
..we are writing in Sarah Palin—of course this is California—but Romney gets zip from my family...
No, the righteous solution is to recognize that hate is a bad, flawed, dangerous reason to vote FOR something you know is wrong.
ABO is fueled mainly by fear of Obama, but it is also fueled by hatred of Obama.
Putting fear and hate aside, one sees that the dilemma is this: you'll vote for amoral, depraved government tyranny (specifically abortion and forced accomodation of open homosexuality as "normal") either way if you vote Democrat or Repubican. Removed from hate, that is the reality of both Obama and Romney.
I love my country and believe I have a sacred duty to vote even when I don't want to. Because I love my country and have a duty to vote, I'll vote the only way that makes sense and the only way that is in line with what the Bible has taught me. I'll vote third party knowing that the candidate I vote for won't win, but knowing that every third party vote will count toward denying a popular mandate to the Satan or Beelzebub who does.
Hate will have zero to do with my vote. Calculation and courage will have everything to do with it.
"On the 2d of July, 1776, the old Continental Congress, to the dismay of the lovers of ease, and the worshipers of property, clothed that dreadful idea with all the authority of national sanction. They did so in the form of a resolution; and as we seldom hit upon resolutions, drawn up in our day, whose transparency is at all equal to this, it may refresh your minds and help my story if I read it. Resolved, That these united colonies are, and of right, ought to be free and Independent States; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown; and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, dissolved.
Citizens, your fathers made good that resolution. They succeeded; and to-day you reap the fruits of their success. The freedom gained is yours; and you, therefore, may properly celebrate this anniversary. The 4th of July is the first great fact in your nations history the very ring-bolt in the chain of your yet undeveloped destiny.
Pride and patriotism, not less than gratitude, prompt you to celebrate and to hold it in perpetual remembrance. I have said that the Declaration of Independence is the ring-bolt to the chain of your nations destiny; so, indeed, I regard it. The principles contained in that instrument are saving principles. Stand by those principles, be true to them on all occasions, in all places, against all foes, and at whatever cost.
From the round top of your ship of state, dark and threatening clouds may be seen. Heavy billows, like mountains in the distance, disclose to the leeward huge forms of flinty rocks! That bolt drawn, that chain broken, and all is lost. Cling to this day cling to it, and to its principles, with the grasp of a storm-tossed mariner to a spar at midnight."
-- Frederick Douglass, "What to the slave is the Fourth of July?" speech, July 5, 1852
I am voting for Goode, rather than either of the evils. ITs the first time in my 65 years ( I firest voted in national election back in 1968) that I will have voted THIRD party. I can no longer hold the nose, vote for the lessor or whatever
I am a Christian first, an conservative second and a republican if it fits that template and this election it simeply doesnt so until a conservative is our nominee...an new Ronald Reagan type of conservative..count me out on national elections.
Even if Romney is wrong 99/100 times, Obama is wrong 100%. The only way we have any chance of keeping our liberty is by first removing Barack, then forcing Mitt to keep to the right.
If Obama remains we shall have no liberty by the time he gets through with us.
