What Would Free Republic Do If Fred Thompson Is Not The Republican Nominee? (Vanity)
December 9 2007 | jveritas

Posted on 12/09/2007 5:12:49 PM PST by jveritas

It is very obvious that Fred Thompson is Free Republic most favorite candidate and by far. On the other hand every other top tier Republican candidate, Guiliani, Romney, Huckabee, and McCain are absolutely disdained by most Freepers. Therefore this is the important question:

What would Free Republic do if Fred Thompson is not the Republican Party Nominee?

Wasn’t Bush purged from FR in 2000?

Get behind the nominee as long as it isn’t Rooodi.

Write-in or possibly 3rd party. Why waste a perfectly good vote on a RHINO?

I’ll vote for Mr. Huckabee (unhappily) or Sen. McCain (more unhappily), but not for Mr. Giuliani under any circumstances whatsover, and not for Mr. Romney unless he gets a really good sincerity transplant. I’d go third party.

Support the nominee. Lesser of two evils and with 2-3 vacancies coming up on the SCOTUS, I trust Rudy way more than Hillary/Obama/Edwards. The base would at least have some say. Otherwise, get ready for 3 more Ginsbergs. The Republic is bareley suviving LBJ’s legacy having a full dem congress. We won’t survive another hit like that.

I’d like to see the logic diagram that allows you to vote for a write-in or 3rd party candidate and NOT call IT a wasted vote.

If Thompson doesn’t get the nomination? Try to hold whomever does to the fire, constantly, so that the contingent of sanity isn’t forgotten anymore. No more amnesty tries, no more ‘no child left behind acts’ and compromise requires the other side to give something, not for you to simply give them everything.

That is what Free Republic’s all about, right?

Do the right thing, and vote for Duncan Hunter anyway, of course. It’s not likely going to be an election that we’ll get a good anti-communist (re. China), pro-Israel president from. It’s an opportunity to teach a lesson about us lowly voters vs. constituents who are drunk on imports, the internationally high dollar and oil (re. appeasement of Iran).

Write-in or 3rd party? My goodness old wise one; why go to all that trouble. Just pull the lever for the Democrat nominee. Same thing and would save you some time.

Jeez!

I'd say that hasn't been my experience. There's been no shortage of Freepers spouting the "fire in the belly" line.

Reluctantly, very reluctantly if it is Rooti, support the nominee. Staying home or going third party is just giving the vote to the Democrats by default. I think we are going to end up with Fred, Mitt or Duncan. McCain is just too scary and Rudy is just to left. We’ll just have to wait and see.

It's interesting, OS. I have read your posts over the years and you and I are more in sync than not, I would guess. But I don't like the Huckster and would be more comfortable with Giuliani. Interesting times, and choices. It is America that I love and which I want to preserve. It is not made easy for us.

I will gladly vote for the Republican nominee, whoever that may be. Ron Paul may be the exception but that will never happen.

Personally my ticket would be McCain/Hunter. I don’t care for McCain at all but think Hunter is the real deal.

Reason I like the ticket is because it could beat whoever the Democrats put out there. McCain would pull enough “undecideds” and/or Democrat votes to make the difference.

Reason #2 is the MSM will absolutely try and destroy any Republican except McCain. He’s a tough target for them and they know it. I think Hill or Obama would dread him more than anyone.

MHO of course so fire at will.

First I would put a clothepin on my nose and select just about any Republican except for Rudy or Ron.

If it comes down to that, I will take two clothepins and vote for Rudy if that’s what it take to retain Republican control of the Presidency, and hopefully the Congress as well.

Don’t give me more hard question like that! It gives me a headache! Need more vodka!

“We should all meet up at the top of the Golden Gate Bridge and protest with a mass suicide.”

I’d suggest a more conservative venue for the mass suicide: perhaps Zion National Park in Utah?

Anyway, Fred Thompson will be the nominee.
