I will not vote for the lesser of 2 evils anymore, there really aren’t 2 parties anymore either. There is “Progressive” and “Progressive Lite”

I. Will. Not. Vote. For. Romney.

Period.

“They” are out to divide the republican vote.....

How do we stop that???


According this this thread, there is no way to stop it. They have more power than any website. Prepare to lose.

“But weak-minded conservatives bought the relentless BS attacks on her in the media.”
- - - - - -

Why label someone with an opinion weak minded because they don’t agree with you ? That’s so dem.

I like Sarah but America will not vote for her this election. She has plenty of time to continue to grow yet her followers, in haste with poor judgement, want to throw her to the wolves. Let her continue to grow and as she does the attacks will lessen and the attackers will move on to new targets.

America will vote “safe” the next election and, at this period in time, she’s not considered safe by a large margin or voters.

I would think most Mormans then will follow Romney right into the voting booths!

- - - - - - - - -
Despite the occasional LDSer on here who posts against Romney, the percentage he won in Utah in the primary speaks volumes. For the most part, the LDS will vote for a liberal LDSer over a conservative “gentile” (what they call all non-mormons including Jews) just because they are LDS.

So I can see the Mormon vote going to Romney in a big way.

Short answer...I set out to prove the ‘anti mormons’ wrong and that they were lying about the LDS church. What I found out is that the LDS church was the one that was lying to me and changing their history/doctrines. I basically researched my way out of the Mormon church. I became ‘inactive’ but didn’t really leave right then.

A few months later I moved home and caught up with an old friend from HS who asked me out and took me to church for our first date. ;)

I got involved in a youth ministry at that church (they desperately needed help), AWANA, and that was where God reached me and I gave my life to Christ.

The guy who took me to church for our first date is now my husband of over 14 years and fellow freeper.

At some point I really need to put my testimony on my profile page here.

Romney deserves the loyalty he gave Gov. Palin -- NONE.

If the GOP picks the backstabber, and poor sport, Mitt RomneyCARE
after his attacks on Gov. Palin (through Team Romney) to throw the Election
to Obama, then the GOP simply does not deserve to survive.

I think the author of, “A CASE for Christ” set out to disprove Christ and the things of God and frankly found the truths and evidence he hardly expected. So you have been in good company in that respect.

It would really be interesting to learn the identities of Republican conservatives whom Governor Palin would be genuinely interested in running with.
- - - - - - - -
It’s really immaterial at this point. She might need a geographical selection to bring in a needed state. She may need a person who improves confidence in her administration in a particular field. She is grounded in reality and will choose someone who will help her get elected and govern. She has a low tolerance for people in her administration working at cross purposes against her.

Agreed.. The Palin-bots are looney-tunes. They simple can’t see the forest through the trees. She’s okay on philosophy but she’s an airhead as far as soaking up knowledge is concerned. She has shown absolutely zero leadership qualities in her brief political experience. Infact, she has shown the exact opposite of what I would consider leadership.

The heat turned up on her in Alaska were nothing but smoking ashes compared to the wildfire of issues she would face as a Prsident.

Absolutely NO Palin.

Despite the naysayers out there, I think Palin is a lock for the GOP nomination. There are too many conservatives who will vote for her in the primaries.
- - - - -
Only if we work hard to make it happen. In 2008, conservatives didn’t have a candidate they could work for that had enough charisma to actually win in the general election. This time will be different. We have 2 years to get organized, get Tea Party people registered as Republicans so they can vote in our primaries, and to replace the Tina Fey image with that of an experienced leader who is fluent in important issues and whose values are typically American. Meanwhile the dems will be working to demean the Tea Parties, Sarah, and the values of both.

“Why label someone with an opinion weak minded because they don’t agree with you ? That’s so dem.”

I did no such thing. I’m calling people weak-minded if they bought the BS from the constant media attacks on here and the subsequent attacks on FR from Romney,Paul and Third Party fringers.

You can vote who you wish for, but it’s going to be Romney or Palin...that’s your realistic choices. Life is choices. If you support Romney, there nothing I can do to stop you or anybody else.

But it is what it is.

Do you speak for America?

The real question is who would the voters in the swing states prefer?

Do the voters in Wisc. prefer Sarah or Obama? Do the voters in Iowa prefer Sarah or Obama? Do the voters in Colorado prefer Sarah or Obama? Do the voters in Inidana prefer Sarah or Obama? Do the voters in Nevada prefer Sarah or Obama? Do the voters in N.Carolina, Virgina and Florida prefer Sarah or Obama?

Are you actually going to tell me that they prefer Obama??

She has plenty of time to continue to grow yet her followers, in haste with poor judgement, want to throw her to the wolves.

She has 2 1/2 years to "grow", yet you want to discount her now.

The haste and poor judgement is ironically -- yours!

Weak RINO McCain replaced by weak RINO Romney?
Soros must have infiltrated the Repubs too.

Make the Dem Party into the New Socialist Fascists Party as it now is, and weaken the Repubs so they are not a viable alternative. Smart strategy. Cheap too. Just got to buy the leadership.

IMO, Palin would get more votes than Romney. Romney is a “has been” who could not even beat RINO McCain for the candidacy. A loser.

Romney, 2012, looks like I’ll sit that one out. He won’t fire up the base and Independants. If the Press is already cheering for him, they are setting it up for a win, unfortunately it will be Obama’s. The candidate they fear the most is the one they try to destroy the most.

How do I know?

Because I’m a supporter of hers and aghast that she has thrown her support behind Sen. John McCain. The majority of her supporters have no love for the Senator.

McCain has a progressive think tank (online site www.thereforminstitute.org) which is supported with donations by George Soros and other lefty organizations. His ‘progressive’ program for fundamentally altering this nation involves open borders and radical enviornmentatlism. Hopefully, you’ll find his think tank as deplorable as I do.

J.D. Hayworth would be far more conservative as a U.S. Senator that John McCain has ever been. And he doesn’t have the support of George Soros!

If you're a real supporter, then you would have already read her book and known that she will always support McCain. Heck, we were discussing that very issue a year ago on these forums since we knew the day would come in which she would endorse him. Her endorsement was NO surprise, and those who express shock and chagrin at it are being disingenuous at best, dishonest at worst.

Since the initial announcement though, can you point me to anything she has actually done for the old man besides repayment of the SarahPAC loan and lip service to his Vietnam service? Looks to me like she has done the bare minimum required for loyalty's sake.

(remember that McCain enjoyed -5% support at FR during the campaign)

I also remember that Mc Cain got his ass beat. If it had not been for Palin, he would have gotten slaughtered. I also remember that Mc Cain and the Republican Party is the reason that obama isin the White House today. Additionally, if they want to stay on this Romney or any other RINO crap, obama will stay there four more years.

Your utterly disgusting Master, Mitt RomneyCARE, DARES say
Backstabber Romney: "I'm not telling you something you
don't know when I say that our conservative movement took a
real hit in the 2008 elections ...because of me,
my Team,and others who kneel before me."

Did RomneyCare apologize?


"Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans,
has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced
,
instead tapping registered Democrats or independents -- including two gay lawyers who
have supported expanded same-sex rights, a Globe review of the nominations has found.
Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats
or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians
or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show.
In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unenrolled voters,
and 14 registered Democrats."
- Boston Globe 7/25/2005


Romney Rewards one of the State's Leading Anti-Marriage Attorneys by Making him a Judge
Romney told the U.S. Senate on June 22, 2004, that the "real threat to the States is not the
constitutional amendment process, in which the states participate,
but activist judges who disregard the law and redefine marriage . . ."
Romney sounds tough but yet he had no qualms advancing the legal career of one
of the leading anti-marriage attorneys.
He nominated Stephen Abany to a District Court.
Abany has been a key player in the Massachusetts Lesbian and Gay Bar Association which,
in its own words, is "dedicated to ensuring that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision
on marriage equality is upheld, and that any anti-gay amendment or legislation is defeated."
- U.S. Senate testimony by Gov. Mitt Romney, 6/22/2004 P>


"Romney announces he won't fill judicial vacancies before term ends
Despite his rhetoric about judicial activism, Romney announced that
he won't fill all the remaining vacancies during his term - but instead
leave them for his liberal Democrat successor!

Governor Mitt Romney pledged yesterday not to make a flurry of lame-duck
judicial appointments in the final days of his administration . . . David Yas,
editor of Lawyers Weekly, said Romney is "bucking tradition" by resisting the urge to
fill all remaining judgeships. "It is a tradition for governors to use that power to appoint judges
aggressively in the waning moments of their administration," Yas said.
He added that Romney has been criticized for failing to make judicial appointments.
"The legal community has consistently criticized him for not filling open seats quickly enough
and being a little too painstaking in the process and being dismissive of the input of the
Judicial Nominating Commission," Yas said.
