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!!
I believe that I am going to go over to the Constitution Party. I will resign my GOP precint chair and send a letter to both the State and the National GOP to tell them why.
Well, suit yourself. I’m getting Obama out of the White House.
I personally dont believe the GOP ever intended to take the white house. The problems of America are just too big and doing what needs to be done will come with lots of blame.
302 posts in and we finely have a winner!
I honestly think the GOPe likes to be out of power.
God bless you.
Deny Romney his 1144 delegates.
The Rebellion is On!
Hello, Quix. How are you?
I am still crushed by that. Maybe he'll look at the mess and unsuspend..... Wishful thinking.
You're the one who's giving up. You've giving up on Conservatism. You're giving up on Newt and the possibility of a brokered convention, or failing that a Conservative 3rd party alternative.
You can leave the country now if you like. Bye.
Sarah along with every conservative political pundit, have said from the beginning they would be 100% behind the nominee whomever that was. In my opinion that was very helpful to Romney, because it put exactly zero pressure on the D
gOPe to change their collective minds.
If BHO is re-elected then every single American who voted for him or who wasted a vote against him by sitting out or going third party WILL be responsible.
So.. how much did Mitt give you for your vote?
Sorry,i dont need anybody to tell me who to vote for.
“No-vote-for-Myth” does not = “No vote.” There are third parties. There are congressional, state and local offices. But I WILL NOT ever pull a lever for Romney and I dare say many here feel similarly.
Right now I’m leaning Constitution Party, but who knows?
Why, are you actually considering voting for Myth?
If so, why not just vote for Obama and support the HONEST leftist instead of the leftist in camouflage?
You are too kind.
No, but having the weight of the Dept of Just-Us behind them is a great help.
“Where was Sarah Palin, Jim Demint, Mike Pence - when we really needed them?
Where were all these conservative leaders?
Where were they when we really needed someone to take the 2010 tidal wave of grass-roots conservatism in a real leadership role into 2012?
I pose these questions out of utter frustration for being left with the worst choice.”
Me, too. I really do feel that after ALL that build-up, Palin betrayed us. If she hadn’t, she would have been the nominee-to-beat from Day One, she’d be the presumptive nominee today, and we’d have a good chance of having an actual conservative in the White House.
But, just like last time, we’re left with the worst possible choice.
Growing in The Lord.
Hope you, too.
There’s no reasonable nor realistic alternative. Thankfully.
GOD ALONE IS WORTHY. GOD ALONE IS ABLE.
So at best we have a windsock.
We need someone who will bypass the SRM and go directly to the people. Reagan knew that and used it to great effect. It infuriated the GOP-e and SRM.
Frankly, as much as it pains me to say it, I see no scenario in which this country as we now know it survives. We have at best, however long it takes Europe to get their financial house in order until it is time for us to ante up. Then we get to relive Zimbabwe style inflation.
Those of us that are closer to retirement than starting will work till the day we die.
Remember when Mexico went through hyper-inflation in the late 80’s early 90’s? They whacked 2 zeros off the end of the currency. So that savings that bought 100 loaves of bread suddenly bought 1.
That is our future.
The only difference I see is Zero is mixtures rich, throttles to the firewall power dive and Mitt gives us time to write a last will and testament.
We still end up splattered in shards on the history of the Earth.
I continue not to understand posts like this. Obama will destroy the country. Romney will destroy the country.
I should care whether the destruction is done by a Crip or a Blood?
With Romney and Obama I have Bullshyt on a bun or Horseshyt on a bun.
I refuse to eat at those restaurants.
Yep. Bears repeating.
I am with you.
All conservative republicans are going to support Romney, including Palin, Cain, Perry, Gingrich, etc.
Aside from that, we seem to not want to see that Romney is running on a completey conservative platform.
I didn't vote for McCain but SARAH!! How soon you forget. You weren't here in '08, sign up in '09. Are you a retread?
I expect it will be the same way this election.
You can expect it all you want and NEED to make you all warm and fuzzy but NOT ME!
I'm done with the GOP and that silly voting thing. My children will understand.
Great decision, Jim!
The country is on a collision course with reality concerning our mounting debt and increasing government dependence by a large majority of the population, not to mention our declining morals and disregard for the lives of our unborn.
We've come to one of those crossroads in history, were like our countrymen before us, future generations will judge us on which direction we take and our resolve to stay the course.
By the Grace of God, not only do we have a well drawn map, our Constitution, we also have a great guide book, the Holly Bible.
If we have the wisdom and courage to take the right path, I know God WILL deliver us. If we let yourselves be deceived by this evil around us, a fate worse than physical death awaits us and our nation.
That’s wonderful. It was nice to see you. :)
Maybe so, but we can’t do anything about the past.
At the time, a lot of us were probably thinking about how we’d really make progress with the historic Republican victory in 2010. Instead, we got Crybaby Boehner and Moderate McConnell, who have ignored us completely.
How many times will we fall for the same ruse? The Republican party can’t be fixed from within because the Rockefeller wing will never relinquish its grip on power. We -have- to form a third party.
I absolutely HATE to be the wet noodle here.....perhaps we were "asleep" too long?......."awake the sleeping giant".
Unless we, the now awake giant take action, perhaps we are not to be saved unless we go through some horrors to show us the error of our ways.
Sleeping on the job is NEVER a good idea. Prayer, penance and action is what is needed now.
Someone please tell me why a pro-abortion, pro-gun grabbing, pro-homosexual like Romney is somehow magically better than the pro-abortion, pro-gun grabbing, and pro-homosexual Obama
On the contrary, Romney would do more to sabotage any limited government conservative solution than Obama could even dream of doing. Romney as president would be the defacto head of the Republican party, and Romney HAS THE SAME POSITION on all five major liberal issues as Democrats, for crying out loud!! Romney is ON RECORD as advocating and promoting:
-- nationalized health care
-- on-demand taxpayer-funded abortion
-- the homosexual agenda
-- liberal activist judges (3 out of 4 of his appointees in Mass were not just Democrats, but activist liberal Dems!)
-- cap-and-trade "global warming" environmental regulation that most certainly would end up being global
BizBroker, voting for either Obama or Romney is NUTS.
Voting third party to make sure whichever clown wins, wins by a plurality so low that it's a political indictment against him even as President, THAT is how to make lemonade out of these two lemons.
I'll be crawling over glass (figuratively, God willing!) to vote ABOOR.
Yes!!! Two thumbs up, and if I had more (which fortunately I do not), I’d put them up too!
“Not many left of Romney though.” Sad, but true. Well said.
GOD how I wish she was the nominee.
There is no reason to believe Romney’s current conservative platform would destroy the country.
I don’t agree with you that a Conservative party would lose. I adamantly believe that the conservative message resonates with the US middle class voters.
No, not everyone is a conservative, but huge numbers of people are disgusted with being strip searched by the TSA, with having their children suspended for drawing a gun, with having to hear 8 foreign languages spoken at work, with having their school children indoctrinated in homosexuality, with paying high gas prices, with having the EPA restrict their lives, with having to support bums and slakers, with being overtaxed and getting avery poor value for their taxes.
I could go on with 200 more examples and I’m a lousy orator. The ammunition is all there.
A conservative party would do exceptionally well as long as they toned down the abortion debate and stayed no topic with economic issues and core traditional values. The various Tea Party groups do this so astoundingly well, they mobilize conservatives while not discouraging moderates.
The conservative message is a great message. It is a proven winner. But the idiot GOP RINO leaders are too cowardly to try it.
Therefore, we need a conservative party. It would take off like wildfire if it was truly conservative and not initially corrupted (everything becomes corrupt eventually).
FYI, “OP” stands for original poster. The original poster of this thread was Jim Robinson, owner extraordinaire of FRee Republic.
Were you referring to Jim, or to centurion316?
The reason I don't buy that is because romney will not have a mandate to govern from the left. If you look at the exit polls, he has won conservative, tea party support and "anybody but obama support. He knows the country wants an alternative to obama and if he's going to beat him, he has to run to the right. The people can keep him in check for four years and primary him if necessary. There's no keeping obama in check. Romney will buy us time.
Is there any reason to believe that his “current” platform is worth even the price of an Etch-A-Sketch?
And wasn’t written with one?
“They better hope they can elect the Flipper with out the conservative base, cause I don’t think they can.”
That is the worst case scenario. If that happens, Romney will pull what Lisa Murkowski has in Alaska. He won’t even throw a bone to conservatives.
That might have flown up in Alaska. But it won’t fly in the south. Mittens is going to need the sound because the election for president is not about the popular vote.
Mittens won’t win. I won’t vote for him and millions more feel the same way.
The polls of Republicans showed they did NOT want Palin to get in the race, back at the time of her bus tour and the Iowa straw poll. I believe I’ve seen recent polls which now suggest that she has gone back up in popularity. The voters were afraid of her getting slammed by the media and thought they could find a White Knight who everyone in the world would love. I hope everybody’s learned that the media will destroy any Republican for any reason they can, be it true or false. The ironic thing is that if Palin had gone up against Romney in the primaries, his tactics of attacking probably would have backfired dramatically. He might not even have dared try them. So she would have been almost uniquely qualified among all these primary candidates to have survived the Romney machine.
Bottom line is, I don’t think she felt she was ready. She spent a lot of time on her media career, deservedly so, through last year but didn’t seem to increase her depth on policy and government. I’ve seen a big change in her in the last 6 months. I think when faced with the prospect of running, and subsequently in watching the debates, she realized the kind of ammo she would have to have to survive a primary campaign. I think she decided she didn’t have it yet but is now making a concerted effort to build up that kind of factual and rhetorical ammunition for next time. I don’t think she realistically could have entered her celebrity career and groomed herself for office at the same time, and she understandably made a decision to cash in on the 15 minutes of fame before they were up. I think voters also probably prefer to see more than a 4-year-gap after an election loss before someone tries to run the same race again.
Romney IS Obama. He will say whatever he has to, when he has to, to get what he wants. Romney has no idea what the truth is.
I am still convinced Romney will win, and he doesn’t need the vote of the far right such as us Freepers. The middle class is furious over unemployment, food and gas inflation, and soaring medical costs. They want Obama out and somebody else in to take a stab at the economy.
Obama is toast. The people, in their infinite stupidity and knee jerk frustration, will vote “anybody but Obama”. This is what they did in the last eletion. They said, “Bush screwed us so vote Democrate”. This year it will be “Obama screwed us, try Republican again.”
The middle class is desperate and furius. Obama is toast. Romney will be president. He doesn’t even need our measly Freeper votes.
Voting for Mittens is the same as telling the libs that they’ve won and we are beaten.
Wanna scare a lib? Reject Mittens.
This is about the war, not the battle. If Mittens gets our vote the lefties know they’ve won the war. Vote for Mittens and we are done!!
