It's disturbing to see how many “conservatives” care more about teaching the Republican establishment a lesson...

But we'll mount a stunning conservative win in 2014 from inside Zero's forced labor collectives. Surely the guards will allow internet access. Do I need a sarcasm tag?

There were quite a few that year. NM had a margin of 366 popular votes, 5 EVs, go to Gore. WI had about a 5,000 vote margin for Gore.

I'm not surprised that there were at least a few close states.IIRC Missouri was close too and went for Bush but,obviously,it's a large state...or at least it's not small.New Hampshire is the only *small* state that I recall having been close and having gone to Bush.

Romney has only mentioned repealing Obamacare about 50 times in the campaign so far. he will gut it, repeal it, and take a federalist approach on healthcare reform. He will sign the repeal bill that a republican Congress sends him. Yeah, it’s absurd of us to nominate a guy who implemented Romneycare, but repeal of Obamacare is his mandate:

“President Obama’s trillion dollar federal takeover of the U.S. health care system is a disaster for the federal budget, a disaster for the constitutional principles of federalism, and a disaster for the American people.

On his first day in office, Mitt Romney will issue an executive order that paves the way for the federal government to issue Obamacare waivers to all fifty states. He will then work with Congress to repeal the full legislation as quickly as possible.

In place of Obamacare, Mitt will pursue policies that give each state the power to craft a health care reform plan that is best for its own citizens. The federal government’s role will be to help markets work by creating a level playing field for competition. “

If Obama wins, in two years, congressional elections will likely swing to Republicans and we can impeach him or at least block him, or at least tie him up in investigations.

If Romney wins, in two years, congressional elections will likely swing to Democrats, and we will have a GOP-labeled RAT with a RAT congress.

The only thing we can be *certain* of is that Romney's nominees won't be any worse that Osama's.And it's distinctly possible (I'd say "likely") that Romney's would be at least a *bit* better.And who knows..........*maybe* they'd be *noticeably* better.

I’m in Texas so the Republican will win, with or without my help. But I am more willing to vote for Romney than I am McCain. At least Romney didn’t spend the last decade trashing Bush every time a tv camera was pushed into his face like McCain did from ‘00 to ‘08. Romney is far from who I’d like to see as our nominee but at least he’s not the punk and traitor to the party that McCain is. And I’m hopeful Romney’s daughters won’t turn into embarrassing tramps the way McCain’s daughter is.

So, yes, I will hold my nose and vote for Romney if I need to. However, if a better conservative is running third party (In 2008, I vote for the Constitution Party), then I will vote that way in the general election since Texas is not a toss-up state. If Romney can’t carry Texas against Obama, we’re looking landslide re-election anyway and then Bye Bye America.

Same to the Republican party: You can’t always get what you want, my vote, when you run liberals like Romney.

Who gives a rip about what the Republican party thinks?! Who did the party prevent from running? Is there some great conservative who really wanted to run, but the party held them back??

Wouldn't it be great to have a nice, solid conservative as the candidate. And you think we don't - because of the party? No, the party doesn't vote for candidates - it's the voters, stupid! (or more accurately perhaps - the stupid voters 8^)

Conservative have a grand history of being home to the congenital complainer. Those individuals who, when everything is not perfectly to their satisfaction, take their ball and go home. Why? For the sole purpose of the chance to gloat "Na nah! See - I knew you couldn't win without me!".

Those who don't vote - for lack of a preffered candidate - may think it's principled. I disagree - it's simply petulance & whining...

A vote for Romney means the GOP wins again in maintaining the status quo, screwing us again. Think about it, they gave us Ford, Dole, McCain, and now this looser. I don’t want zero, but I don’t want Romney either, If my refusing to vote screws the GOP, so be it. There has got to be a stop to both parties, I have my ideas on how, but first we the people have got to stand together.

Nope. The Republican establishment needs to learn the hard lesson, that “moderates” do not win. We will lose this election, but if Republicans learn from their mistakes, we may win big in the following election.

This has been my argument all along. Anyone could have jumped in. As the voting process moved along, this is what we're left with. It's childish to sit home and blame the establishment. People act like this is just another run-of-the-mill Democrat vs. Republican election. Well it's not. The survival of the country is at stake and I think Romney gets that. I was a strong Perry supporter and was disappointed when he dropped out. That doesn't mean I'm going to sit out the most important election of our lifetime.

The GOP will never “learn a lesson” because too many still vote for them.

The GOP is a dead political party, and slowly but surely we are facing that fact.

It is sad and scary, (as evidenced by many on this thread who still cannot face it).

They will someday, as we all did.

Voting for a RINO who had to govern a left wing state over a radical communist shouldn’t compromise your conservative principles. It would be far worse for the next generations to never have known the America we knew.

I always said I would never vote for Romney, who’s a slithering lying, deceptive manipulator who cares only about winning offices...but after watching Dear Leader threaten the Supreme Court (”That’s a nice little court you have there, wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to it, would ya’?) I realized I’d probably end up voting for Mitt, even though he’s a pro-abort gun-banner, because Obama is pure evil, an un-American would-be Stalin, whereas Romney’s just a wanna-be Princeling who likes the trappings of office, but I don’t think he burns and seethes with the pure hatred of America and our country like Obama does.

What is sad and scary is that there are so many who think that voting for the “protest” candidate solves anything.

“Let’s not delay the inevitable! Let it all go up in flames - then we’ll rise victorious from the ashes!”

You’re certain that the political system that comes out of the ashes will bring improvement? You’re willing to take that chance?
