Grow up?

Because I think voting for the pandering fraud from Mass is a useless waste of my time I should grow up?

Because I think the long term health of our nation is better served by maintaining my Conservative principles rather then continuing to settle for a RINO who grows goverment, just a little slower, I should grow up?

Because I believe that a Romney presidency would actually do more damage to the Republican brand, solidifying negative perception towards what Dems will claim are Conservative principles, I should grow up?

Yup these are the arguments the establishment uses to marginalize those who don’t get in line. Palin was spot on when she said the establishment types use the same tactics as the Dems.

My friend, if voting for Romney is the only mature and responsible outcome of his nomination then I will NEVER grow up!!

If you are willing to vote for a candidate, Mitt, who is still supporting his RomneyCare (Socialized Medicine) that still contains easy access to $50 abortions, then yes, I’m calling a spade a spade.

You sir are a liberal.

Not in the least bit. By you not voting against 0bama (Or throwing away your vote) you are helping to elect a man who said that if a child who was meant to be aborted lives, you should simply let that child die. 0Bama said it would be inconvenient to call a doctors. Also, you are helping to elect a “man” who (I believe) hates America and is destroying this nation by class warfare.

I don’t care for Romney, but if he’s the only one running against 0Bama in November, yes, I will vote for him.

I will vote, but not for Romney. Conservatism will be set back by a Romney win more than by an Obama win.

That is the problem. The media and liberal democrats will surely label Romney as a right wing extremist even though he'll be more close to their ideology.

My solution; Sarah Palin or some other choice runs independent as the tea party candidate. The tea party endorses and backs the tea party Republicans in congressional and senate races. In this way, we get our people to the polls rather than many of them sitting home. The result is we'll gain significantly in the House and Senate to stop the growth of government.

In the best case scenario, Palin/? could win and we'd be off and running. As unpopular as Obama and both parties have become, an independent, populist voice could have a chance to upset, imo.

It seems that’s exactly what they’re doing. There’s no way this isn’t a calculated decision they made, they’re politicians and politicos, they calculate these things to a tee, more than we ever will see. They had to have done this as a conscious decision. That being the case, they don’t get to have their cake and eat too by trying to blackmail the very conservatives whom they dismissed in their political calculations into voting for their establishment candidate. They made their calculations and acted upon them, now they must stand by and watch as conservatives do the same. They think they can do better by appealing to that nebulous “middle”, they need to go for it. They just need not get angry at conservatives for taking them at their word when they tell us to get lost.

Hell no!

The only ones helping to elect Obama are those:

1. Supporting Romney.
2. Or caving and accepting the Inevitable crap
3. Spouting the crap that if we don't vote for the eventually nominee, the implication being Romney, we are helping to elect Obama. Because by doing so, you are giving aid, comfort, and cover for the Progressive Liberal Mitt Romney.

Get off your knees and fight for your conservative principles.

No surrender, no compromise!

Rebellion was brewing!

What happens if Romney isn’t able to be elected? For whatever reason he drops out, health issue, something from the past etc.

It becomes a brokered convention?

Any candidate who shows up can be written in?

Romney isn’t as bad as Obama in the same way that a state-level 2-page RomneyCare law isn’t as bad as a 2300-page national ObamaCare.
