A Pledge Never to Vote for Romney: Send a Message to the GOP
Vanity | September 12, 2011 | Xzins

Posted on 09/12/2011 4:22:19 PM PDT by xzins

Romney is Obama-Lite. Take the simple pledge:

I will not vote for Romney for any reason.

Yes I must agree, there is one reason I would vote for Romney but a hundred I wouldn’t want to say it aloud.

I'm hoping for a true conservative and that isn't Romney or Perry (despite the talk and constant talking points from his fanboys), but I will vote for any Republican (except Huntsman) against Obama.

Me- How's nominating the lesser of two evils workin' for ya ? You- How's allowing the greater of two evils workin' out for you?

Thank you for making my point - I DID vote for that POS McCain.

If this country is really stupid/corrupt enough to reelect Hussein over ANY CONTRASTING CHALLENGER . . Then all our arguments are moot. Kiss the U.S. of A. goodby. We're done.

Conclusion: This opportunity will not present itself again- EVER. We damn sure better nominate a game changer. Someone who will actually work to reverse the slide.. . Not pass the buck down the road.

Once you have painted yourself into a corner where flanking maneuvers are no longer an option... A bayonet charge is the only way out.

I’m not so sure President Romney will have to work with the conservatives. I think it’ll be the other way around. If Romney wins, he’ll credit it to the support he got from the middle, not the support he got on the Right. So, he’ll ignore the Right. Furthermore, some GOP Tea Party type Senators will cave in to whatever statist nonsense Romney wants. Oh certainly some will buck the leader of their party... maybe Demint, Rand Paul. I’d bet guys like Toomey get in line though. You are right, with Obama there’s a 100% chance of a statist justice being nominated. I think there’s a good chance we get a statist justice under Romney as well.

Voting in your primary elections is what will matter - not posting a ‘pledge’ on a thread in a news forum.

You got it right on both counts. If it’s O vs. Romney, I will be voting for Romney.... and happy to do so.

Let me get this straight, you're ridiculing us for refusing to vote for Myth Romney?

Do you realize that Jim Robinson has said repeatedly that Free Republic will not be used to push Romney for any reason?

That being said, I am pragmatic, and would vote for a monkey before obama.

“Do you realize that Jim Robinson has said repeatedly that Free Republic will not be used to push Romney for any reason? “

Then he’s going to have a LOT of accounts to delete if Rom’s the Nom.

Because I WILL NOT have any problem explaining to my grandchildren that I did whatever I could to oust Øbama and PRESERVE FREEDOM in 2012. If he is re-elected, there’s going to be a lot of explaining to do from your family Goulag.

ABØ 2012. Liberty CAN’T AFFORD the alternative.

For all of you saying you’ll vote for the GOP nominee “no matter what”, you need to remember what happened with “Brady bill” Bob Dole.

Voters need something more than just someone to vote against. We need someone to vote FOR....

Willard ain’t it...

We've gone over this before but apparently the republican apparatchiks haven't learned the lesson.

IF THE REPUBLICANS DON'T RUN A REAL CONSERVATIVE FOR PRESIDENT, THEY HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME FOR THE LOSS BUT THEMSELVES.

I WILL NOT VOTE FOR THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS AGAIN!!!

I AM ONLY VOTING FOR A CONSERVATIVE.

Did that finally sink in?

Mitt Romney is the most liberal governor in the history of the republic.

He instituted homosexual fake marriage.

He socialized medicine.

He instituted $50 co-pay taxpayer-funded abortions.

He banned guns.

He homosexualized state government and the public schools.

And he’s the biggest liar in American politics.

Neither I nor any of the principled pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-border security, pro-national sovereignty, pro-RKBA, Reaganite conservatives I associate with in all 50 states will ever cast a ballot for him. Take it to the bank. I mean that literally. Factor it in, because it ain’t gonna happen.

So, let’s wave the white flag as say “Full speed ahead, Zero”!!

Great argument.

Article II of the Code of Conduct:
“I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender the members of my command while they still have the means to resist.”

To re-elect Obama is full on surrender. If voting for Romney is the only way I can resist in this election, you better be darn sure that’s what I’m going to do.

Your position is what the RINO’s and closet leftist count on.

I refuse to be taken for granted, again.

If Romney appears too likely to get the nomination I will resign the Republican party and go independent.

That WILL get their attention, they are making a very serious effort to attract independents INTO the party. NOT to create more of them.

I’m disgusted with the way “Our” side keeps compromising away our rights and freedoms, time for the OTHER side to “Give” for a change.

I would vote FOR Romney under two and only two conditions.

Condition 1: He has a staunch conservative (as proved by voting or governing record) as the VP

Condition 2: the House and the Senate are slated to be absolutely veto overturning conservative.

As far as I am concerned, a formidable Conservative House and a Jim DeMint type Senate, overturns the veto of any President to the bill that abolishes every shred of Obamacare. That's where the majority of our efforts need to be. Yes, by all means vote AGAINST the elitist Republican establishment wing of the ruling political class in every primary and fully support any candidate that supports the Fair Tax or flat tax and term limits for members of Congress. I will be financially supporting any candidate that runs against John Boehner or Mitch McConnell, Obamalamadingdong's ruling class enabelers.

History will judge us on what road we take next.

And unlike the the majority of nations that have ever existed, I suspect God will also judge us individually on our voting booth choices - why ? Simply because the leaders we elect are a reflection upon us.

Again, I reiterate- We should nominate a counter-Obama in every way possible. Not an Obama lite. On the mathematics of fiscal spending alone, it’s now or never. No more globalists, no more socialists.

There’s one on, bottom o’ the ninth and we’re down a run. With two out, we don’t have the luxury of a sacrifice bunt. It’s time for that Kirk Gibson home run.

If Romney is the nominee, SCOTUS is already lost unless the conservatives can stay healthy.
