Don’t let reality shake up your life friend...just keep holding on to those will be “happier” that way. God Bless

As far as the Presidential nominee --I did not leave the party; the party left me! You can be assured I am far from happy about.

I have learned in business and in life that before you can fix something you have to acknowledge it is broken, and if necessary stop the process, so it can be fixed. At times, when you can not stop something the best way to fix something is to let it break.

The unprincipled spineless compromising elite have broken my party. The progressives spineless compromising choice loving homosexual pandering RINOs need to be eradicated from the party.

I will NOT support RINOs propped up by a failed party. True conservatives will get my support and my vote while RINOs will get NOTHING. I will let them fail...

“You may be an old man Fledermaus, but you do not understand free markets or simply relate that which you THINK is conservative...I don’t see anywhere where you understand freedom.”

You don't know me from Adam. You are judging, pure and simple.

BTW, I have an undergraduate degree in Economics from the Univ of Ark. and was working on my masters when I started working at a major hotel.

I then continued in the luxury hotel business for 30 years managing huge properties. Don't dare lecture me on free markets and freedom.

You are inferring only because of my lackluster support for so-called conservatives. You can argue until the cows come home at how conservative W was. You lie that he didn't say “I had to destroy the free market to save it” comment. You may call that pragmatic, I call it arrogant. Just like his daddy.

W could give great speeches and do the opposite. I saw him at the Grand Old Opry give a great speech until he started on that illegal immigration crap. The crowd booed him.

And now here you are, ala Rick Perry, lecturing me on the “Christian” thing to do and how “we can't do this and can't do that”. You sound like a RINO.

We didn't import them, won't have to deport them. Just turn off the magnet and most will leave on their own. It's not my fault Mexico is a basket case. Under your RIDICULOUS view, we should start ferrying Chinese across the Pacific to “get a better life”. Wouldn't that be the Christian thing to do?

Infusing a dying industry (yes, the government helped kill it) with cash IS NOT a free market principle. Structured bankruptcy is. I'd have flunked you if you were in my economics class for that view.

So why don't you get off the fence and stop this middle of the road argument trying to actually say Bush 43, Bush 41 and Romney are conservatives. They use conservatives as a means to power and then run back to the left of center to “work across the isle” and shove large government down our throats. Bush called it “compassionate conservatism” while I saw it as big government light.

People like Bushes, Romney, even Newt and Santorum, see power under any label as a way to implement their “enlightened” visions over the rest of us. Romney has NO record and says NOTHING that shows he'll govern our way out of this mess. At best, he says he'll just slow it down.

As to freedom, you are arrogant to presume I don't understand it because I don't blindly, like you, follow GOP thinking to the letter. I'm a conservative, not a Republican.

Don't forget this: it was the GOP, along with W, that banned the 100 watt incandescent lightbulb. I now have NO FREEDOM to purchase one. But I'm sure you have a pragmatic explanation. Now who is on a high horse?

P.S. America DOES NOT represent Christianity. It represents freedom of religion. If my knee jerked like yours I'd call you a religious bigot but instead I'm sure you just misspoke.

So, you are a mid level management guy...someone that would have worked for someone like me...who owned the properties. Let’s get something straight between us...I want to win...that means that we do not have the luxury of denying a good man like Romney from the Presidency just because he does not agree with every issue you desire. I can guess that in reality most issues you and he will be in agreement. The real question is are you going to simply blather your way through this election and do nothing positive to defeat the democrats or, are you going to play into their hands and help defeat freedom? Those really are what we are talking about when all is said and done.

I cannot help but wonder what someone like you thinks of all the famous conservatives who are endorsing Romney and have for a while? Are they all wrong in their assessments also? Is it really the world against the few “true conservatives” here? I don’t think so, I think there is some real blindness going on here and it is from you guys who will cut off your own nose to spite your own face...

Mid-level management?

You can contiune your childish jibberish all you like, insulting me is beyond the pale.

You have yet to list these “famous conservatives” and you keep lecutiring me as if you were 18 years of age.

I’ve helped defeat more leftwing Dems than you can count.

It’s bend over and take it up the a$$ jerks like you that keep the RINO’s in power. The proof is how ridiculously you argue Romney. You must be Ann Coulter.

Now leave me alone you twit and go back to your Motel 6.

I think you take yourself too seriously...generally a character flaw of those who wanted to go farther in life than they did...envy is not becoming.

Let’s start with two pro life groups who endorse Mitt Romney:

The Susan B Anthony and The National Right To Life Pac...both endorse Mitt Romney. Strange they would endorse a “pro abortion” candidate as has been put forth here...someone may be mistaken about that one eh?

Then there are some Republican politicians who, last I checked were considered conservative...albeit, now to their surprise they will be labeled “rino” by some eh?

Marco Rubio (you know, that Rino from Florida)
Chris Christie (that Rino from New Jersey)
Paul Ryan (that Rino from Wisconsin)

Tim Pawlenty (the Rino from Minnesota)

Nikki Haley (the Rino from South Carolina)

Terry Branstad (the Rino from Iowa)

Oh, let’s not forget the ACU...that’s American Conservative Union...

And then there is that Rino judge Robert Bork

And that courageous Rino Ann Coulter

Morton Blackwell
George Landrith
David McIntosh co-founder of that Rino group The Federalist Society

R Glen Hubbard
Georgette Mosbacher
Ed Gillespie
Paul Weyrich Founding President of that Rino org The Heritage Foundation
Christine O Donnell
Dick Morris
Larry Kudlow
Jay Severin

And the list goes on and on and will continue to grow...but you and a handful of others know the “truth” you know that it is all a sham, that Romney is really a liberal...good things you guys will be around when the democrats are left in power...I look forward to seeing you in the streets in the civil war...good luck!
