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!!
There's the "difference" between Obama and Romney.
One of two equally loathsome choices... neither one of whom I will have voted for.
I'm not a Republican; I'm a conservative. The Republican party never, ever gets to simply take my vote for granted -- they have to earn it, each and every time out, by running candidates whose views on the issues (as demonstrated by their previous track records, while in public office) reasonably align with my own... and I'm the only person on the face of the planet capable of judging whether or not they have, in fact, genuinely done so to my own satisfaction.
They didn't. I won't.
They can try just a little harder next time out, if my vote is so supremely important to them (as I certainly do keep hearing, hereabouts).
We would not have this, our wonderful country if our Founding Fathers had been so willing to accept the unacceptable.
"The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission.
We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die."
Address to the Continental Army before the Battle of Long Island (27 August 1776)
Dominica passport? Any better countries? Secession? Because if we have no choice but the lesser evil, this country may become one of the worse places on the planet. Just look what happened to Germany in the 1930s.
I do think that we do have a chance with Romney and right now that seems a better approach than secession or leaving the US. if Obama wins, secession or exodus could become a real necessity.
"Fellow-citizens, the ark of your covenant is the Declaration of Independence. Your Mount Ebal, is the confederacy of separate state sovereignties, and your Mount Gerizim is the Constitution of the United States. In that scene of tremendous and awful solemnity, narrated in the Holy Scriptures, there is not a curse pronounced against the people, upon Mount Ebal, not a blessing promised them upon Mount Gerizim, which your posterity may not suffer or enjoy, from your and their adherence to, or departure from, the principles of the Declaration of Independence, practically interwoven in the Constitution of the United States. Lay up these principles, then, in your hearts, and in your souls - bind them for signs upon your hands, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes - teach them to your children, speaking of them when sitting in your houses, when walking by the way, when lying down and when rising up - write them upon the doorplates of your houses, and upon your gates - cling to them as to the issues of life - adhere to them as to the cords of your eternal salvation. So may your children's children at the next return of this day of jubilee, after a full century of experience under your national Constitution, celebrate it again in the full enjoyment of all the blessings recognized by you in the commemoration of this day, and of all the blessings promised to the children of Israel upon Mount Gerizim, as the reward of obedience to the law of God."
-- John Quincy Adams, the Jubilee of the U.S. Constitution: a Discourse
Now if we could just find that conservative presidential candidate that conservatives could all unite behind...
We’re not even united behind any one candidate here on FR.
Stop being such a naive voter!

I see you threw in the towel before it began!
And your fear is of what? A little, or a lot, of difficulty? Maybe even your life? How much “discomfort” are you willing to face to remove tyranny from our midst? How serious are we to see our country returned to its former glory and its rightful place as the greatest county on earth? My mind races back to the soldiers under Washington’s command at Valley Forge - where would we be today if they had felt too much discomfort to react?
Thanks JimRob. Really REALLY losing my patience with these ABO zombies.
You do understand that your stated choice is between socialism and socialsim?
So, which socialist do you want?
“Why choose the lesser of two evils? Vote for Goode!”
You'll have better luck urinating up a rope.
Gabby Johnson said it best. "Hell, I was born here, I was raised here, and dad gum it, I'm gonna die here, an no sidewinding, bushwacking, cracker croaker is gonna ruin my biscuit cutter."
Newt who be a knock out puncher to Obama and voters would learn about America and see 'how off' those prior led us off the ranch! And then ready to do what needs to be done - that he is well knowledge about ANXIOUS to DO!!
Before Obama touched down in Chicago - his bill would be history! He had two other bills he planned to repeal in that one sitting. And HE IS NOT A LIAR LIKE MITT - he WOULD DO IT!! And there would be no need to keep his feet to the fire like the mittbots believed they NEEDED to do w/ mitt, the Liar - he needed expensive baby-sitting! How pathetic!
Buy a clue, troll. There is no RIGHT in abortion!! There is no LESSER EVIL in abortion!! There is no LITTLE BIT dead or LITTLE BIT anti-liberty. The godless leftist agenda is 100% wrong whether advanced by Democrats or Republicans!! Evil is EVIL!! Obama is EVIL. Romney is EVIL!! Period!!
We cannot be less evil by voting FOR evil!!
I will doing a write in as well (Palin is my choice).
AMEN! Well said.
I’d rather fight president Romney than King Obama. If Obama is re-elected, the US is over. Secession from Obama’s ameritopia might be the best approach, time will tell.
I only wish Goode would adopt a few underdog tactics. He needs to garner a following like Paul, but without lapsing into Paul's weird stance on defense. Build a web presence - instead of the Daily Paul have a "Goode Morning America" video every day where he explains his position or puts his slant on the issue du jour and explains why the MSM is stupid.
We can vote to deprive whichever evil wins of a popular mandate. The way we do that is to vote third party. Of all years for us to have to do this, providence has made this year the right one because Obama is in big trouble, as everyone from the MSM to Rush Limbaugh has pointed out: MANY Democrats who voted for Obama last time will desert him at the ballot box this time, either by not voting or by voting third-party.
Every third party vote, not just ours, but those cast by disillusioned Democrats who think Obama isn't "leftist" enough, will count toward reducing the popular mandate of whichever evil wins.
It may not be much to vote or hope for, but providence is on our side and it's the best strategy we've got. The conservatives we'll be putting in Congress will have a better chance opposing a president so lacking in popular support that the majority of actual Americans (as opposed to electoral college) voted "against" him.
THAT is the effective action we can take.
