To hell with the GOP-e. Barring a miracle, they got their big government, unconstitutional mandate loving, socialist abortionist Obama-lite RINO on the ballot, they can now get him elected.
We are the resistance!!
Shove him down our throats today, we shove him up your donkeys in November!!
I can see November from my house!!
The term RINO is no longer functional. The party that embodied conservative american values is gone. Republican now means GOP-e.
I believe either in this coming election, or perhaps the next, that the TEA Party will have a viable candidate for president.
It is time for people of principle to have a candidate with matching principles - the principles of our founding fathers!
Just a little of the left-wing, Progressive Liberal record of Romney:
1. Implemented/created Gay Marriage in MA
2. Supported and forced Gay Adoption in MA
3. Supported Abortion wholeheartedly
4. Raised taxes/fees over 300% while being Governor of MA
5. Implemented a state-level Cap and Trade system.
6. Supported Man-Made Global Warming
7. Supported the Brady Bill
8. Implemented a state level “Assault” Weapons Bill after the Federal AWB was allowed to expire
9. Supported TARP
10. Supported Amnesty for Illegal Aliens (Citizenship for those already here)
11. Supported McCain-Kennedy(Amenesty)
12. Implemented a socialized medicine in MA called RomneyCare complete with an Individual Mandate and $50 abortions
13. Nominated 27 Democrats (out of 36 nominations) for judgeships in MA, many of them extreme left-wingers
Good list. How does Myth expect to run against a guy he agrees with?
Well unless someone is talking to the actual delegates about a brokered convention its nothing but TALK.
Which is why the GOP establishment got their choice. Because they control the system. Until more conservatives get involved in the system nothing will change.
Voting for a third party candidate out of protest certainly won’t effect a change of the system.
And this countries last chance of salvation before going down Obama’s toilet is ASSURED by crybabies not getting their perfect candidate.
First off. I am NOT a Crybaby.
Second. I don’t demand a perfect candidate. I do however think it would be best that I agree with our candidate at least 60% of the time.
Based on Mitts record I do not agree with him 60% of the time. I disagree with him closer to 75%. This is what happens when the GOP-e goes to the left side to get their candidate.
It matters not weather I vote for Mittens or not. He is Obama’s chosen one because Obama knows he can beat Mitt like a rental car with full insurance.
White men could become extinct under another four years of obama.
I don’t believe for a minute Romney is a liberal.
I believe Romney is a whore.
If getting liberals votes is the goal, then he is liberal. If getting conservative votes is the goal, then he is conservative. This is why I believe the USA could survive a Romney presidency. He would cave to pressure from liberals, but he would also cave to strong pressure from conservatives.
I think he is an empty suit who will cave to the highest bidder. All we have to do is out-bid the liberals.
I’m with you too, Jim

I will be skipping the POTUS box on the ballot for sure.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
Jim, thank you for your statement. This whole mess has shaken me to the core. And I’m not the only one. The Romney nomination will not only divide the Republican party, it has already divided this friendly group of conservatives. It’s sad to watch us accuse each other of being unpatriotic (and that’s the milder of the accusations hurled against me).
This division is manna from heaven for Obama. He probably won’t have to resort to voter fraud or intimidation to be reelected.
It’s too bad we didn’t realize the party hierarchy would screw us over like this. Had we known earlier, we could have mounted a third party candidacy. We were blindsided. So now we will have to endure four more years of Obama, maybe more if he succeeds in making himself dictator. Then watch all the pundits come out of the woodwork, scratching their heads and wondering what went wrong.
Funny, the draft-dodging surrender monkey Romney drew his line in the sand long ago when he denied Reagan-Bush, denied conservatism and ran as a gay rights pushing, Roe v Wade approving abortion advocate, big government mandate loving socialist. He’s now looking America square in the eye and lying his ass off. He’s a political whore who will say anything to get elected. Republicans are suckers.
“I swear, some folks think the First Amendment would give them the right to march up to their boss and curse him out.”
Oh boy.. I think I’m in trouble now...!
YES we are....
I have others “down” the ticket I can vote for.
At this point I don’t know whether to just write in a name or maybe Constitution party canidate...
Sure not voting for Romney...hes Obama lite I know it , many freepers know it..and as pappy used to say..”you can’t fix stupid” so obviously the electorate has turned stupid...was it Franklin who said “You were given a Republic if you can keep it”
Looks like we may lose it due to ignorance,apathy or some other factor.
I vowed in 2008 I was voting for Sarah, not Mclame and it wuold never happen again unless a consevative sat atop the ticket...well Mittens is no CONSERVATIVE.

With respect, the problem with putting earrings on a hog is that, in the end, it's still a hog you're dressing.
The VP choice matters absolutely nothing to me. It's the candidate I can't support.
I could add a whole lot more.
I’m not voting for someone who enacted homo marriage and Romneycare in MA. If that means that Obama gets elected, TFB.
Nominate a candidate I can vote for next time.
I will happily support the constitution party as they believe in the same things that I do.
I encourage all conservatives to leave the GOP and destroy the party since it no longer represents us.
I am not being a smart ass. I am looking for guidance.
RINOs are fellow travelers.
The GoP-e RINOs hatched a plan to get 90% of America to sear their conscience, set a precedent, and vote (for most/many) their FIRST ever...
There's just one teeny-little prob with their plan: There's not enough liberal socialist proabortion voters to go around in America to support two liberal socialist proabortion candidates!
It's NOT going to be the typical 40something% to 40something% vote...
Romney will have to "outliberal" Obama to capture the licentious Independents & the union Dems & Roman Catholic Dems & Hispanic vote. Just because conservatives won't vote for Obama does not mean Romney can get them to come their way.
The NEW FREEPER True Conservative Oath:
I will not become a shill, a catalyst or an apologist...
...for socialist healthcare elitists
...or for pro-abortion give-your-offspring-to-research slaughterers...
Nor will I vote for "I'm-your-American-god" Mitt Romney
I will not stay home on Election Day --
And hurt other true conservatives in key races
(As well as other key ballot issues)
I will write in Sarah Palin or some other TRUE conservative in the POTUS race as a collective "Protest vote" vs. the GoP-e
I bet many others here are the same way.
If they want my vote, they need to present a candidate I agree with and support. One I can have respect for when I don't agree.
I am not a Republican - I am a Conservative. If there is no Conservative on the ballot, then there is no one for my vote. I don't vote straight ticket - ever; never have, never will.
I fully understand the SCOTUS angle and its “supreme” importance.
Justice Kennedy has said he would retire after this 2012 election, but I have recently read that he said he would not retire if the Marxist is reelected.
I pray for the excellent health and long life’s of our 5 conservative justices.
I was reccently very happy to learn that Justice Thomas is a young 63.
Romney is much more dangerous than Obama. With Obama there is deep political division. But with Romney it is likely that won’t be the case as he swings everything to the Left.
I will not vote for Romney.
Personally, I’m going to back whomever the GOP nominates and it looks to be Romney now! Not going to cut off my nose to spite my face! Period!
We all need to get a grip and remember that......
Any Republican nominee is better than Obama!
If Obama was to go dictator, it could spell trouble, meaning angry blowback.
_______________________________Or business, or religion, or Israel, or the Supreme Court, or the productive class.....
Once Obamacare is ruled unconstitutional (which it WILL be) Romney will not be able to institute a national healthcare scheme. Nobody will be able to because the court will have said that such matters must be left to the States.
You can't be serious. You are comparing a website owner's right to association with the persucution of Jews in Nazi Germany?
Woof. Some folks really need to go back and read their Constitution - and then understand what it means.
On the other hand, we have Mitt Romney, who is a very liberal democrat. But he's not likely to declare a dictatorship.
So I've got a choice between being killed by a .44 magnum round to the forehead (Obama) or being killed by slow cancer (Mitt Romney).
I guess I might elect for the slower option just to give me time to get my affairs in order, right? I dunno WTf to do.
“HOWEVER we can’t ignore the likelihood that the next president of the US will appoint anywheres from ONE to THREE Justices of the Supreme Court.”
If you think Romney will pick a ‘conservative’ for SCOTUS, you’ve got another ‘think’ coming.
“Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans, has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters (75%) 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.”
I disagree. If BHO is elected the conservate movement will not be responsible for all you mention. If GOP-e is elected conservatives will shoulder the blame when the same things happen.
When Romney appoints waffling, moderate at best, SCOTUS The Republic will be no better off.
No more RINO!
Ok. Take heed to the 'prepper' threads because...
Something Wicked This Way Comes!
Rev.13  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
A 50-0 total blowout repudiation of Romney wouldn’t change things?
Hey if the GOP thinks it can win without us, they should go right ahead. Seems they don’t want conservative support anyways.
If we all vote for the constitution party then we get a chance to speak our mind. Since the GOP isn’t giving me a chance to vote for a candidate that I can support then I’m going to use my only chance to speak out by voting a party that does speak for me.
And that’s not the Romney lead GOP.
Why are we listening to them anyways? Let’s all collaborate and vote for the Constitution party.
I for one will not fall into this RAT-trap, because, not voting for Obutt’s only opponent assures Obutt will be re-elected to finish the destruction of the country. Newt was my first choice, but he was destroyed by the demrat media, just as others were. Keep in mind, the RAT-controlled media will continue to paint romney as a rino (don’t misread me, romney was my last choice) so that Obamugabe can win again. BO’s dream is for the US to become another 3rd world craphole like every other nation and city ruled by africans. Do we really want that to happen?
This is the gop/e’s last party... after November... I work as hard as I can to seize the gop or replace it... I do not give a rats arse which way it goes down. I am no longer a supporter of this gop... I will vote for every Conservative down ballot... BUT ON MY SACRED HONOR... I WILL NOT VOTE FOR THAT BABY KILLING, GUN GRABBING SOCIALIST romney!
Where did I say I would vote third party and you seem to be against a brokered convention?
At least, I’m FOR TRYING to stop Romney by denying him the 1144 delgates. You, not so much.
It’s a great analogy!
Would you like to cite the other “Restaurant” options available to you in this case?
The writing was always on the wall at each turn in this primary race. The establishment wins again, as they seem to all the time. We never had much for choices in hindsight either. Conservatives have control in localized places, but never at the top of the ticket or in nationally focused races. It is the media, it is lack of leadership, and lack of voice we are given. This includes Fox which is slightly to the right of CNN and the major news networks yet very far away from conservatives. The war for the soul of the party doesn’t seem to spurn triumph from the hands of pixels as one would hope, and that is unfortunate. They have systematically weakened the great tea party movement and effectively neutered it, and in the process took another step in our destruction.
I believe we undervalue the power of the MSM, and it’s ability to dictate our leaders, and destroy those that believe in the values we all hold so dear here. We overlook their influence and power at our peril. They still hold all the power.
I'm very definitely not a "no-vote coward". I will be voting in November, just not for Romney or Obama, and I hope that those who despise Romney and resent the establishment insiders who rammed Romney down our throats (disgusting as that image is, at least it wasn't his neighbor, Barney Frank!) will also vote. We have to vote in the down-ticket elections to get as conservative as possible a Congress to restrain whichever big government liberal we get stuck with.
