“I reject the premise that Mitt is evil.

I can share another cliche with you:

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

Obam is evil.”


All your arguments rely on cliches. And why not? The campaign between Obama and Mittens is a joke. Of course the supporters of it must speak in jokes too!

“Actually, liberals and commies were indistinguishable before Mittens got on the (R) ticket. By the way, Trevour Loudon reported that a Marxist in the DSA actually helped craft RomneyCare on behalf of Romney.”

This tells me you honestly don't know the difference. You should educate yourself.

“I am voting for a liberal.”

I see the difference. Just never thought I’d see those words written here, on Free Republic. Strange days.

I get where you are. Don’t you think that seeing those words here means that we’ve gone too far? I do. At this point it’s time to hold the line and get ready for what happens next. I’m not trying to be an ass - just...when do we stop?

Pointing out that Romney was aided by Marxists to develop RomneyCare tells you I’m not educated about Romney?

How about you educate me, Mittbot?

An 0bama win would be the last nail in the coffin for the republic. The reasons are legion.
1. Supreme court nominees
2. Unrestrained spending with debt crisis
3. Department of Injusice will act on the enemies list
4. Taxmageddon
5. IRS audits against enemies
6. Full amnesty via EO
7. Full cap and tax via EO
8. Censorship of Internet and media via EO
9. Forced unionization, eliminate secret ballot via labor board.
10.Ammo and gun restrictions via EPA, DOJ
11.Full implementation of 0-care.
12.UN implementation of agenda 21

There will no ability for conservatives to fight 0bama and the Left through political or legal means. The economy will collapse and there will be a debt crisis leading to civil unrest. At that point, it will be impossible to restore a constitutional republic. The best thing we could hope for is a coup or revolution against the Leftist tyranny with the installation of a dictatorship that allows for free markets and suppresses Leftist activity. This follows the French revolution model.

So you signed up in April (after the primary) to voice your displeasure with Romney? LOL!

And you seem to only show up on threads relative to anti-Romney memes (gaffes, polls, etc). Never on threads where (your boy) Obama is the sole target of scorn, i.e. gaffes, failure of Obamanomics, etc.

Sounds like a troll to me.

I explained earlier that I was not happy with Romney, either. I’m not stirring up trouble, I’m having a real problem understanding why folks claim they will not vote for Romney when he is all we have. To me, that is allowing 4 more years of Obama, and the end of our Republic.

Calling me a “Romney Rump Ranger” is doing the same thing you are accusing me of. I was disparaging Raising Cain because I believe she is a media plant, and you immediatley jump on me and invoke JR. How is that not taking the low road?

I want Obama gone..period. I’m sure we agree on that point, but you call me a rump ranger. You misunderstand me..

Christ isn't a politician.

I do reject their judgement on how I will vote. I will vote my principles. Just as you will vote yours.

I never imagined they would make excellent presidents. All politicians are crap. Some have a record of supporting things I support. Others, like Romney have a record of supporting things I would NEVER support. Abortion, gun control, socialized medicine, etc...

Why do you persist in thinking that browbeating freepers that have been here longer than you will get them to vote for your candidate?

If the only concern is whether or not Republicans will ever again win elections, presidential or otherwise, then, of course the defeat of Gov. Romney won’t be a big deal!

Of course folks with “Rs” after their names will win the presidency and other offices.

The question will be, what does it mean to be a Republican?

In four years, it will be unlikely that anything close to a majority will support the repeal of DeathCare by Obama. In four years, support payments and transfer programs will be even more entrenched than they are today. In four years, our opposition to homosexual marriage will have likely been completely steamrollered, two or three additional radical socialist justices will have been appointed to the Supreme Court, and the bottom 60% of the population will permanently vote to tax the remaining 40% into relative poverty.

To win elections, Republicans will have to behave like Conservatives do in Great Britain, where the Tories must out-shout Labor in their support of the National Health Service to overcome the fear of the people that an incoming Conservative Government might actually move toward improving health care in the UK by starting to dismantle the NHS. Republicans will have to promise not to alter the progressivity of the income tax, nor to nominate Supreme Court justices to the right of Hugo Chavez.

More than any other Democrat since FDR or even Wilson, the Kenyan anti-Christ has purposefully set out a plan to transform the United States from a free and independent republic with a (still partly) free economy to a Euro-style neo-fascist, effectively a one-party, welfare state dependent on the UN or other world authority.

Yes, folks, a Mitt Romney loss would necessarily be a disaster. Not necessarily for folks who prefer the Republican label, but for folks who love freedom, who love their country, who view themselves as authentic conservatives.

To be completely honest, I am voting out of fear. I've been reading “The Communist” and the book shows how the relationships of Obama, Valerie Jarrett, and Axlerod were formed through their families and mentors back in the 1930’s. These were card carrying communists and Stalin was their hero. Obama in the White House is the culmination of the decades of their work and I am very afraid of what else they have planned for us.

I'm not saying I will vote for Romney and then give up. I think the Tea Party has shown its force and that will continue to grow. We just need to be smarter about how to go about getting someone to run for the presidency that we can all get behind and not split the vote.

I guess you would call it picking the person you want to fight with. I would much rather fight Romney than Obama. When I fight I intend to win and I don't think I would win against an Obama in a second term.

Unlikely?

Even more...?

In four years, our opposition to homosexual marriage will have likely been completely steamrollered,

How’s it looking with Mittens in the Whitehouse?

two or three additional radical socialist justices will have been appointed to the Supreme Court,

Additional?

and the bottom 60% of the population will permanently vote to tax the remaining 40% into relative poverty.”

Permanently?

Your way of thinking isn’t working. If it is, how did we get to Unlikely, Even more, Additional and Permanently?

Voting for socialists with an R after their name doesn’t work. You just made that point.

I'm not much of a Romney fan, never have been. At one time or another, I supported most of his opponents. But one thing is for certain - 0bama and his crew are the main enemy. Four more years of 0bama and America won't have four more years after that - at least as a country you would recognize or want to live in.

As deficient and unattractive an option as electing Romney may be (but it is the only realistic one, really), it beats the alternative: four more years of planned destruction resulting in a Communist dictatorship or at the best, civil war.

Therefore, I find myself agreeing with the Don Rumsfeld philosophy on war...

"You go to war with the army you've got, not the army you wish you had!"

Right today, Romney is the only army we've got that stands a chance of victory.

Please, people, don't lose sight of the big picture. The only goal right now is to beat the enemy, not obtain ideological purity. That can be done later if we survive. If we don't beat 0bama all the rest is for naught. We can take care of the cleanup, tweaking, and ideological cleansing after we've rescued the country from certain doom. It sure as hell won't happen if we don't beat these fiends. It would be "game over".
