That’s about the way I feel too, although Romney certainly mouthed all the right words at the debate. And for those who are quick to cry “traitor” at anyone who does not rush to embrace Romney, let me remind you that there are more elections on this ballot than just the presidency. It is also important that conservatives strengthen our presence in the House and add to our numbers in the Senate.
if Romney kicks BO’s butt this next round as badly as he did in Round 1, I could almost see myself voting for him. But I would do so not in the blind faith that he’s a conservative, but in the full realization that I was participating in the gradual demise of our country.
I understand your sense of disgust about Romney, but do either of you care about the future of your children and/or grand children?
Every reason you give for not voting for Romney to get rid of obama, is magnified thousands of times if obama wins and those future generations will pay the price.
Go have breakfast with your wife and do some gardening, and pretend that there is a moral equivalence between Romney/obama and then your conscience won't keep you awake at night, and you will have "remained true to your principles".
Comparing their voting records:
Obamacare Akin-No; McCaskill-Yes
Medicare Cuts Akin-No; McCaskill-Yes
2nd Amendment Akin "A" McCaskill "F"
Social Security Cut Akin-No; McCaskill-Yes
Wallstreet Bailout Akin-No; McCaskill-Yes
Pro-Life Akin-A; McCaskill-F
Passed budget Akin-Yes; McCaskill-No (3 years)
I, too, am disappointed in the choice of Mitt Romney, but if conservatives vote for truly conservative men and women to represent us in the US House and Senate, AND if we watch them all and "hold their feet to the fire," then IMO, we may be able to drag Romney - and the rest of America - back in the RIGHT direction.
Just wondering what you think and where you stand on these other candidates....
“If Romney wins, I still lose. His values are not my values. When (if) the Party puts someone forward that I can support, I will vote for them. Until then, I have plenty of other things to keep my busy.
I would wait and respond, but I am meeting my wife for breakfast. With the choices that the Party has put forward, it beats politics by a long way.”
well put :)
Another honorable reason!
