Skip to comments.Where does a Conservative go?(Vanity)
Posted on 01/20/2008 1:18:25 AM PST by TexasMatty
As a Conservative I am lost. I will not, under any circumstances vote for John Mclame. He has sold Conservatives out. Nor will I vote for Jesus' favorite candidate Schmuckabee. I believe the most Conservative candidate is Thompson and can't help but wonder who is voting in these things. If Mclame or Schmuckabee is the nominee I can't vote. It will pain me deeply to not vote, but either of those clowns are no different from the lefty. Me question to my FRiends is.. WHAT THE HELL DO WE DO??? The situation seems rather desperate.
What’s wrong with Romney??
(I intend that, as a rhetorical question)
I see all this hand-wringing, and I see a candidate who’s got strong faith and family values, business leadership experience and is as electable as any Republican in the last 20 years.
Romney can beat anyone the Dems run!
Conservatives have to settle. My settling process will involve voting for the candidate whose position I like, the party affiliation will not matter a twit anymore.
Thats how this conservative will settle.

But it is a mistake to believe that conservatives must settle within the Republican party, which has in many cases, candidates who differ very little form Democrat candidates.

I didn’t cause that problem, the GOP did.
I wanted Hunter from day 1.
Romney’s a good candidate.
It isn’t “six of one and a half dozen of the other.” The end of the world, sky is falling, chicken little types seem to always forget how much damage a Jimmy Carter clone in the White House can do to our foreign policy. Be realistic and admit that the worst Republican (and you get to choose which one that is) is going to be better on the war than Hillary or Hussein.
It’s easy to be pessimistic right now. We may never see another Reagan in our lifetime be President. Hell, we may never even see another Bush in our lifetime be President, but we can’t stop or give up. The struggle continues until we die.
Romney’s a pro-choice Mass liberal. I’m not voting for him.
As far as my support, I’m faithful to the Declaration and the Constitution, not to some party. Like it or not, Ron Paul is more consistent in that regard than anyone else. He has his flaws (BIG ONES), but he’s light years better than a RINO, especially on domestic policy.
Goldwater lives! That’s where I’ll go if Thompson doesn’t make it.
They betrayed the party and betrayed America.
This is the result.
Just have to hunker down and weather the storm...
I think Romney has taken some positions in Mass, which he needed to take, in order to win there.
George Bush, has taken some postions, which I’m still furious about, but he’s a darn sight better than Kerry would have been.
I’ll confess to being more libertarian, than many here, and I don’t mean to express anything other than my honest belief, that Romney seems to this poster, to have the qulities to be an excellent President.
And he can win.
He can beat Hillary. He can beat Obama.
With the right VP, he could inspire many here on this board, who seem to be doing to Romney, exactly what we’ve seen others doing to Hunter, and Fred Thompson.
He's a liar and a fake. Don't be fooled.
I know a "great family man" from the same faith pool. He is currently living with his male lover after leaving his wife and two sons. Everyone thought he was wonderful on the surface as well.
Look into his record and wakeup! Check the Romney truth file at the top of the FR forum page. The man is a sleazy and greasy Democrat and he is fooling a lot of conservatives with his front.
The “same faith pool”?
Is that code, or something?
Perhaps. But is domestic policy the ultimate issue?
It may seem trite, but in the end I think it boils down to:
You wake up one day next year and the headlines say "Iran has the Bomb!". Whom do you want in the Oval Office that day?
You may disagree, but for me THAT trumps all my discontent with the GOP candidates on domestic issues. It scares me to death thinking of Hillary or Obama in charge of national security.
Did you check the Romney truth file already? Wow..you are such a quick study. /s
I don’t take direction well. :)
Deal with it.
I know waht you are saying but I have a longer memory than you do. I remember that a short while ago our nation in 2004 voted conservatives into congress to from a majority in both the House and the Senate. Their legislative agenda was tarduced bu 14 Senators known as the gang of 14. Seven of those were Republicans, who together thwarted the elective will of a nation.
The conservative movement failed. There is a reason why the electorate is not voting conservative.
And so I willvote candidate by candidate, since there is no hope for a resurtgeance for cnservatives to form a government in the next congress or to take the executive office.
In my State , I will vote those closest to my conservative position on issues of personal import.
Like I said, I will no longer vote a straight Republican ticket like I have for 25 years.
As far as the presidency goes, I can say with certainty that the Republican Party will lose the presidency in November. They no longer have conservative voters as a cohisive electoral part of the Republican party, which means many former conservatives will be voting either independant or democrat as they have done in the primaries.
The jig is up my friend, and millions of us yesterday have jumped off the Republican hook.
And there is nothing ANYONE can do about it now.
We warned, we cajoled, we pleaded and no one listened. So grin and bear it. "Progressiveness" is a female dog! And if I must be a "progressive" by "force majeure" no bunch of two bit mavins and their MSM running dogs in Washington will direct my evolution in it.
And I am legion.
No one can stand on moving ground.
Yesterday made it certain that one of them will be president, and your greatest fears are NOW realized.
The race for the presidency is now over.
OK but while I’m considering reading your file, you might brush up on saying:
Because it looks to me, that Romney’s about the only thing standing right now, between Hillary and the Whitehouse.
Actually McCain is the only one that polls nationally to win against the Hildabeast (not that I’m for him either).
