Notice: Free Republic has been in full rebellion mode since 2008 and will remain in full rebellion mode for the duration!
No more Doles!! No more McCains!! No more RINOS!!
Those who cannot stomach rebellion might as well start looking for a new home on the net!!
Those who have ignored my hundreds of posts on this crucial issue or who have doubted me these last three or four years might as well get used to it. FR will never support the abortionist, homosexualist, socialist, mandate loving, constitution trampling liar Mitt Romney.
In case you haven't noticed, a TEA Party rebellion is on and Free Republic signed on years ago. There is no turning back. No more crap from the GOP-e!! They've screwed us for the last time!! Karl Rove and Mitt Romney, et al, loathe conservatism and loathe the tea party and took it upon themselves to use their money and connections to destroy nearly every one of our conservative tea party candidates while pushing their big government RINOS. That makes them the enemy. I will not reward that betrayal by giving them my support or my vote.
FR is and will remain a pro-life, pro-limited government conservative site!!
We are beholden to NO ONE!! We bow to no kings!! We bow to NO RINOS!!
I'd rather fight and die like a man than bend over and be screwed by a RINO!! I refuse to kiss Karl Rove or Mitt Romney's rings!! They can kiss my rosy red ass instead!!
Long live the rebellion!!
Hope my message is clear.
Like others before me on this thread, I tender my resignation from this forum.
You cannot cure the disease by killing the patient, my friend. You, like many here on the FR site have taken a position far beyond common sense.
"What then do you advocate we do if Romney is the nominee?"
Guess you can’t read then RINO. I’ve posted my answer a hundred times in the last few days. Now take your RINO pushing ass off FR!!
Watch your blood pressure Jim, its not good to get all wound up this early in the morning.
I have a strong feeling Obama and his circus of flying monkeys will find a chink in Mitts wall, they will start chipping away and Romney will take the same road as other candidates, in effect he will be blasted enough to pull voters away and myself I have a feeling he may even withdraw from the running before June.
No offense but, I’ve had enough.
Like others before me on this thread, I tender my resignation from this forum...
...funny, isn’t it...it seems that a large number of, how to say it, unusual, people reside on this site...what used to be a very provocative, independent minded forum is now the very model of directed groupthink...sad, really...
...let us know when you find a perfect candidate, guys...
...Newt Gingrich, indeed...
C ya, wouldn't want to be ya!
Why would I need kneepads unless I’m gardening?
UnLESS, MHGinTN, you were trying to be cute and using some sort of filthy, liberal sexual innuendo. You weren’t doing that, were you? I mean, you’re a good conservative, aren’t you?
I will not be campaigning for Romney, and unless we elect a conservative state committee at our convention next month, I’m leaving the GOP entirely. I’m going to register as an independent and seek out true conservatives to campaign for. In 20 years in Maine I’ve watched what Romney like moderates have done. They’ve aided King, Baldachi, they haven’t created a grass roots ground game to take on the liberal cabal. The state gop is worthless. The national gop is worthless. And it’s time for a legit, well funded third party.
“Who the F would vote for that clown Romney, anyway? Just sayin’. Count me still OUT.”
People whose idea of a living nightmare is to have that clown Obama in office for another four years. THAT’S who.
The Majority of Stupid will vote for Romney.
its called ideological weakness, find a person they can worship, doesn’t matter the past of that person, its all about acceptance of the herd, the herd is figuratively as dumb as cattle, they know not their future as steaks or beef jerky, all they want is to be part of the herd.
But Romney owns the slaughterhouse...
Oh yeah, it's just ludicrous to think we should have a party that stands on principle and constitutional precepts. It's just outright insane for conservative republicans to demand candidates and reps adhere to conservative principles and refuse to adapt democrat platforms!
I don't know when it will happen or how, but this republican party house is coming down one way or the other so you better prepare! How's that for "common sense?"
NO MORE RINOS!
Thanks for a thoughtful reply!
I’m confident that upon further reflection you’ll note the logical flaw in your argument.
Given you addressed that to me as well as Mr. Jim, I will assume then that my last reply to you hit a nerve, and you did not appreciate being called out on your condescension of Conservatives on this Conservative forum.
Since you equated Conservatism with tyranny, as if our principles are in opposition to the foundations this country was established if we demand a return to those being upheld, rebellion to those pushing your views is necessary.
Some call it cleaning house.
If there's anybody here who thinks Gingrich is a perfect candidate, it's not me. I supported Rick Santorum, with reluctance, because I think he was the best choice despite some legitimate concerns.
I'm responding with a “ping all” because I think something needs to be said that I haven't heard others saying. Read my last two paragraphs in this note. We need to get behind Gingrich, not because he's perfect, but because he's the only option left.
I've had two posts pulled because moderators believed I criticized Gingrich too strongly. Their call. (Private emails resolved both problems, BTW, and later posts saying the same thing were allowed to stay once I made clear why I was saying what I did.)
The choices now have come down to Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, and Mitt Romney.
Of those three candidates, Gingrich is the last option who I can support as an evangelical Christian. You won't hear me saying he's the best. You **WILL** hear me saying there is no other alternative left. I will also hear me saying that he has a credible claim to be personally repentant, and even if we don't believe he's repentant, he has a long track record of supporting cultural Judeo-Christian values, and that's better than the alternatives out there.
I'm not a defeatist. I don't take my marbles home and cry; I try to work with the cards I've been dealt. I can do that with Gingrich. I can't with Romney.
Romney simply cannot be trusted on key issues such as abortion and homosexual marriage. He does not meet the Romans 13 principles for civil government that, as an evangelical Christian, I need to seek out in a candidate for public office. Civil rulers are supposed to be a terror to the evil and unjust. How does Mitt Romney terrify the abortionists and advocates of homosexuality -- except that maybe they're afraid he'll keep up his flip-flops and they can't trust him either?
I sincerely believe that if Mitt Romney wins, it will be God's judgment on the Republican Party for our Laodicean compromising, and the willingness of too many Republicans to put economic improvement above moral values. Both are important, and I certainly believe in capitalism, but the Bible tells me the economy of Sodom and Gomorrah was doing pretty well, too. In Genesis 13:10, the “cities of the plain” were well-watered, but they were also exceedingly wicked, and God destroyed them not long after for their wickedness.
In a nation where people get to select their own leaders, generally people get the kind of leaders they deserve. The same goes for political parties. If the Republican Party wants to be the party of free enterprise but free of God's law so babies can be killed and homosexuals can get married, it's not my party anymore. Romney, unfortunately, seems to be taking that road.
Yep...will try and remember...I’ll let you know though.
...and that remains in operation no matter what he says today... The deed was done. He'll enlarge that slaughterhouse as well.
We need to stop the insanity Romney cannot win this election!!!!!!
If it last 4 yrs, he'll try for 8...& the GoP-e won't allow other suitors.
Or just as bad, you pick one she wont marry...
So? As you said, there's a "next groom...someone you approve of." So, no marriage -- and having to wait 4 yrs for someone better to come along -- is better than a horrific marriage.
This will be my last post about this nonsense. I’m ready to move along and work on getting Obama out of the White House. What about you?
The original comment was about my commitment to Gingrich and the conservative cause. At some point there’s a likely chance that Romney will be the nominee and my point was that there are many people who will have to hold their nose and pull the lever for Romney. Are they less of a conservative because they will vote for Romney because they want Obama out? I say no. You do what you have to do- make an alliance with a person you don’t like because that’s the only alternative we’ve got at this point.
I’m not a Romney supporter, especially after what he did in Florida to a man I deeply care about. Sadly, I’ll support him because that’s the hand that’s been dealt.
Again, this is all assuming Gingrich can’t pull off an upset at the RNC.
The ‘name dropping’ was to establish credentials in an abbreviated amount of time.
Still in prayer for our Republic and Constitution to be saved, onyx. God bless you and yours onyx, and all who go to God in prayer, and another prayer for those who will not go to God in prayer, yet will vote. May God bless and keep our Republic and Constitution. In Jesus Name. Amen.
.... Elect Romney, on the other hand, and our side won't show near the opposition to his near-identical performance in office..... He's 85 mph to Obama's 100.... We still wind up in the same place, but with an avowed and transparent despot in office, there will be more OPPOSITION to his transgressions and over-reach....
Not so with the milk man, Romney,... who will lull a Republican Congress to sleep because he's 'their guy'. They will allow him ten times the latitude that they'd allow Obama, simply because he's sporting the right jersey.
Understand these dynamics,.. and understand that Romney is actually FAR MORE DANGEROUS to the long-term prospects of not only patriotic conservatism in the US, but the near-term survival of the nation as we know it".....
Exactly right Windflier! Nicely stated and the truth for those who have ears to hear.
Jeff, thank you for that clarification, and thank you for supporting Newt right now.
The GOP is about to make yet another fatal error if they nominate Romney, a man who has never governed as a Republican, is pro-choice,pro- homosexual marriage and whose Romneycare was used as the foundation for Obamacare.
I strongly believe we have one last chance to help the GOP see the error of its ways, and that is tpo support Newt, the last conservative standing, and get him to Tampa with five primary wins so it opens the floor. That is what party conventions are for, and what they have historically been throughout our history.
I had read your posts on this thread, and did not fully understand your position until this post, and that position is consistent with what I know about you.
The act of rebellion right now , to me, is to support Newt and get him to Tampa.
Running around screaming and yelling or accepting defeat with resignation like so many on this thread is not an acceptable course of action, when there is yet an alternative.
Our collective act of rebellion in the remaining primary states can change the course of this historic election.
Our children and grandchildren and their fates are too important to trust to another Obama term.
That is why I am for Newt.
Goes with the territory of staying in the fight and when need a second wind.....we're standing at the edge of the Red Sea and the enemy is hot on our heels, with seemingly no where to go.......God's not finished yet....Newt's going to make his play......stand with Newt and let's watch God part the Red Sea.
James, the brother of Jesus, is said to have had knees like a camel from all his kneeling int he Temple. I suspect you wear your ‘stealth worship of milt rominy’ kneepads too tightly. It is interesting that you jumped to a sexual innuendo conclusion without merit. The republican nominee is not yet decided. Conservatives, true conservatives, will work our asses off the next few weeks to blunt the deceits you and folks like you throw into the political arena. Nedwt is the ONLY hope for opposing little barry bastard. Your LDS inc cnadidate is a liar and delusional. Live with it. ... Oh, and Have Nice Day.
"Im not a Romney supporter, especially after what he did in Florida to a man I deeply care about. Sadly, Ill support him because thats the hand thats been dealt."
With liars like you supposedly 'working for Newt' it is no wonder he has such an uophill battle to prevent your Milt Rominy from becoming the republican nominee. The hand is still being shuffled yet you keep declaring it is already dealt. Piss on arrogant liars like you and your Rominy high priest.
“Not so with the milk man, Romney,... who will lull a Republican Congress to sleep because he’s ‘their guy’. They will allow him ten times the latitude that they’d allow Obama, simply because he’s sporting the right jersey.”
Since WHEN has the Republican congress ever stood up to Obama? He made recess appointments when the congress wasn’t even in recess and they did nothing about it except hide under their desks.
There’s no reason to think they would be any more assertive during his second administration.
You missed the point of what Winflier is saying.
If you think Congress is weak against Obama...imagine what they will be if Romney gets in.... Windflier is right...they’ll go to sleep because they see Romney as one of their own and for that won’t lift a finger.
Of course they’ll do nothing...the Representation is as much Democratic as the other side of the aisle...there is no aisle anymore.
If Newt is unable to pull off a brokered convention, I have stated clearly what my intentions are and why.
But, in that event, based on the wishes of FR’s owner, Jim Robinson, a man I have a great deal of respect for, I will not campaign for or mention that support here on FR.
I will use FR to attack Obama and to work at the equally critical task of getting a solid conservative House and Senate for Romney to work with should he win.
These are very dire times as we are all aware. A lot of understandable emotion, frustration, and anger about the situation we face. We all must prayerfully and deeply consider how we approach it and respond to it for the sake of the rising generations.
I believe under any circumstances that another four years of Obama would be the worst disaster this nation has faced since its founding and will do all I can to prevent it.
So true. That is the heart of the matter. When the ObamacareII shows up, we need to be part of the majority that sends it to die in committee. Even if we got 49% of the 51% of the senate, we're still not going to be able to vote Not to mention how so many of our conservative TEA darlings from 2010 have turned around and given us the finger now that they're in the trappings of DC.
Perhaps if there was a way to enforce telecommuting for congresscritters....keep them out of DC much as possible.
What bothers me about this "No way no how, teach the gd gop a lesson!" meme is that in reality it means less support for down ticket conservatives, where the only viable candidate in a district is running as a republican against the local dimocrap.
That's the problem. There are no good options.
Father God, we repent of the evil we do and have done, forgive us, restore our nation to the former faith and values that followed thy WORD, We are filled with gratitude for the mercy, goodness, and grace offered to us today, in Jesus name, amen.
To keep the analogy true; the decision always was hers so the father has the choice of a) being honest and giving her the truth that will ring in her ears after her marriage has fallen apart or b) feeding her delusion by giving her an answer that makes everybody feel good for the moment.
If the father does a) she might actually listen to him but if not she will know when it's all over that he was a rock and she can trust his wisdom. If daddy does b) she will learn that his advice is just weak-kneed nonsense said to make her feel good and keep him safe from her criticism.
my what candidate? my LDS, Inc. candidate?
This is what I mean by the circular firing squad.
I’m voting for the republican candidate for presient because I KNOW that another four years of Obama will lead this country to its demise.
Now that you and so many others calling themselves good Christians and conservatives have totally insulted me to no end and you or the rest of them never asked.........who was my candidate?
Let me tell you who it was. It was that “LDS,Inc.” as you call him, Rick Santorum. If I had to choose, it was Rick. Rick Santorum, who was routinely criticized by the firing squad here for a political misstep, is a good and honorable conservative. HE was routinely trashed here by others who claimed he wasn’t “conservative enough”. What a joke. If Newt is the candidate, HE gets not only my support, but my money, my time and of COURSE my vote. Likewise for ANY repulican candidate. You and the others can sit here and insult, criticize, stomp your feet, have your temper tantrums and hang onto your campaign donations as Obama, Inc. masses BILLIONS in donations and will convince others just like you to “stay home” because the republican candidate isn’t conservative enough........ As for me, I will be working MY “ass” off in order to convince blinded by the media conservatives such as you (IF you’re in a swing state) to get off YOUR behind and work to defeat Obama. If you think Obama’s re-election will bring on some kind of revolution among conservatives (who were totally unable to get behind a candidate), then, YOU, my dear are totally blinded by your own hatred of “LDS, Inc.”.
This has become totally insane. I expect hatred from the left, but from the right?
Now, you have a nice day as well, enjoy the circular firing squad.
Sorry Velveeta, I see your points but I view Obama’s 4-year damage very similarly to Mitt’s 8-year damage.
The end result is a loss of personal freedom.
We are being forced now to vote AGAINST the democrat instead of FOR a republican and that needs to stop now.
The only way we can fix this problem with our government IN THE LONG RUN (<—that’s key) is to show a little tough love to the RNC.
If your child tries to touch a hot stove you tell them “NO!”. If they persist, you let them burn their fingers. It will heal... and then teach a valuable lesson in the process.
A vote for Newt is also a concession. He is very, very far from being a perfect conservative.
So, as all have feet of clay, there really is no candidate worthy of anyone’s vote, and we are right back where we began.
That’s some solution to obama.
She was still pressing for Newt and Paul to stay in the race, so she apparently does not like Romney in the top spot, but she has not advocated open all out support for anyone.
Still I feel she will do as all have promised and it will be ABO, even if it is Romney. I will be voting in Oregon this election so it truly doesnt matter who I vote for, other's will have to make the decision in their state, where it does matter.
My position has always been clear. Sadly FR was busily attacking their own, when we should have been attacking Romney and the Won, there was no profit in attacking Newt Supporters or Rick supporters, because they would have to become allies at some point. Sadly I still see the insults directed at Santorum, and he is no longer in the race.
Newt and Mitt share the same first principle: power lust!

And what about this other stuff? Not important?
McCain is bought and paid for by Soros. He tried to arm muzzie terrorists in Kosovo, pushed for ground troops in Libya and wants us to go in to Syria. He authored the most anti-Constitutional bill ever made a law. He gutted laws that protect American POWs. He did more to push for cap&trade laws than any Algore ever dreamed of doing. McCain is the poster boy for Shamnesty.
I guess it's not thoughtful to post the truth about McCain.
Jim Robinson for POTUS BABY!
Yep...that would be in the GOP'S faces and speak louder than a blank space.....tsk tsk!
"These people are not conservatives. They're not Republicans," Hatch angrily responds. "They're radical libertarians and I'm doggone offended by it."
Then Hatch, a former boxer, turns combative. "I despise these people, and I'm not the guy you come in and dump on without getting punched in the mouth."
You never hear Hatch muster up that much violent hate for the socialists. They are all despicable power entitled/crazed statists!
