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.
Good for you for not sitting it out altogether. While we will probably be stuck with Obozo for another four years, its imperative that Republicans maintain control of some of Congress just to obstruct him.
Best DAMN post all month. Thank you,Jim.
Lots of Republicans you voted for have done nothing to stop abortion except spout words against it to make you vote for them. We’re all on the hook partially for that anyway. Don’t kid yourself.
I am so happy that you have come around to my way of seeing things!
You’re making this more difficult than it has to be. The states below that I listed that don’t favor Romney have 55% of the delegates, which is exactly the amount Romney needs to lose to be denied the nomination outright. Now all these states have various WTA or proportional rules that affect the allocation. But all in all we can see this is a close enough call that Newt could pull it off if Romney just underperforms a little based on his past performance.
More Conservative?: (578 delegates)
More Liberal?: (381 delegates)
Top 10 Mormon %: (94 delegates)
rhetorical question. why do people think that voting for a pro-abortion, anti-gun rino will be better than the pro-abortion anti-gun Marxist? Oh, I know, somehow our weak sister faint-if-they-say-boo gop-e geldings will suddenly stand up and stop the marxist !! ooops- should have issued a HURL ALERT !!!!
Romneywhores unite!!!....somewhere else.
We get to write in Prez and V.P. I would assume. So maybe Palin/Newt, the way this primary should have worked out in the first place.
The Tea Party made great inroads in 2010, the key is to get more of them elected in the Congress and the Senate in 2012.
If Romney gets in, at least enough conservative congress members will push him to the right (Obama cannot be moved to the right) and who said there can’t be Tea Party rallies in DC if Romney is in the White House.
I will keep donating to Newt and pray for a miracle, but if it is Romney vs. Obama - then it’s Romney. I never want to explain to children and eventual grandchildren that I stood by and let that POS Obama appoint 2 or 3 more Supreme Court judges.
So you recommend we set the hook the rest of the way?
I’d like to also hear Jim’s reply to this. Jim?
Which is why we should get serious about backing anti-abortion and pro-marriage federal constitutional amendments instead of chasing down these wishy-washy candidates, who end up caving into the party machine half the time anyway.
I agree !!! And if it were a bill Clinton, Kerry, John Edwards, Andrew Cuomo, even hillary, I would not vote for Romney under those circumstances.
I just believe that Obama represents such a lethal and game ending possibility, that I have to consider things I never imagined to get him out of office.
I am long over my principals at this point in terms of what I would do to oust the communist traitor and Marxist tyrant Obama.
If a third party candidate emerges, I’ll vote for them. I’ll send them money. I’ll campaign for them and AGAINST Romney. I won’t just stay home, I’ll do everything I can to DEFEAT Romney. Not only will Romney have to run against Obama, he’ll have to run against Conservatives.
You know your stuff, so I'm asking sincerely - Are we truly better off with Obama, then?
I'm inclined to go ahead and vote for Romney becuase, if he wins, the nominees he would name for the Supreme Court would be far, far better than the Communists Obama would name. Losing the Court means the end of the Republic, period.
Maybe I'm wrong.
I believe the only way to avoid this is to have all the state primaries at the same time. Or within a very short time frame of a week or two. Let them campaign all together for a longer time, then have a nationwide vote.
This dribbling and drabbling and gradual dropoffs of good folks, are the thing that gives us the worst candidates at the end.
But I am asking what specifically can we do either at the convention, or after that, that can actually get a conservative candidate into the White House?
That’s cool with me. The whole point is, win or lose, to make it known that we voted for them BECAUSE the GOP ignored us. We put the onus on them. No sweat of our back either way since we will not vote for Mitt.
Hurts then bad. Makes us heard. Win/Win.
oh please, spare us the poor dramatics
Islam, Mormonism ... both false religions.
I've seen a lot of name-calling and derogatory comments in this thread but few details for fighting back.
What specifically (besides not voting for Romney) does the "resistence" intend to do?
How does the resistence intend to "fight"?
What would you consider a viable alternative to voting for Romney?
Were you referring to Sarah's advice given on several occasions of “ABO”?
How? How do we make that happen?
A person ‘over their principals’ is a liberal. Period. Why are you still here when DU/KOS is filled with those whose lack of principals you share?
Pardon my ignorance, but what is “GOP-e”?
Do you think Newt has a chance? He is the closest thing to a Winston Churchill we have. I wish this was a possibility.
One good thing is that Obama is SO bad that it really helped create the Tea Party and the 2010 election victories, which did more to terrify the GOP-e than anything else. He’s a living, breathing wedge issue. And if we make enough gains in Congress we can perhaps filibuster his judges. We never did get our revenge for Bork, did we?
You must be so used to using rotten language you aren’t even aware that you do it. What exactly do you think “pull your head out” means?
I’ll try to make it clear for all the Romneywhores.
Some folks have principles. Some folks won’t vote for a pro abortionist supporter of Planned Parenthood. Romney and Zero are both.
If I vote for XYZ. My vote is counted for XYZ...not Obama, and not Romney. As much as you may to pretend that elections are mutually exclusive events (big words alert), they are not.
My business and livelihood won’t survive 4 more years of Obama. So I view those helping Obama and his fat thug of a wife as many appear very eager to do w not so warm a feeling. Bad enough I have to fight the leftists in my life, never thought that FR would be giddy for a second Obama nightmare out of disgust for the wretched GOP primary process which sucked!!!
I wanted palin and got mocked on my Facebook page, other sites, etc etc, but at this point it’s ABO as newt is done for all practical purposes.
You have any other ideas?
This is what I don't understand - how is it that huge numbers of dissatisfied conservatives sit home and yet we gain seats in the Congress? That's not going to happen. If Romney truly is the disaster in waiting predicted here, then we can write off the Congress, because Obama will have coattails as he cruises to reelection.
Grand Old Party - Establishment (or Elites).
Jim, I’m with you, but what is the plan, man?
While Newt is the last conservative standing, I am fighting for him to go all the way to Tampa.
Right now, tonight—he IS the resistance to Romney and the GOP-E.
We still have a chance to derail Romney. The fat lady has not sung yet.
Let’s direct some of this energy into getting Newt some delegates and into denying the coronation of Willard.
That’s my plan.
“while our candidate is FAR from perfect, “
What do you mean “our” candidate?
What is this, your first day with your new brain?
Many of us agree with you, and didn't need you to tell us. It's why we came to FR in the first place.
I am no Obama supporter. But I will not do a thing to support Romney.
The known indifference of Romney to the many issues you have already listed is evidence enough he would not help our country break away from this socialist spiral we find ourselves in.
Trollhenge awaits! The porcelain receptacle has lotsa’ room for Romneybots.
I remember this is what many people said 4 years ago. They stayed home and we got Obama.
Not sure this reasoning works. Well, it might if you're willing to go thru 4 MORE years of hell first with Moochelle grinning at you...a victory for her which I personally am just not willing to grant. Meanwhile all your savings could go up in smoke under 4 more years of hard-core socialism if it hasn't already.
why are you using up bandwith for this vanity post?
Is that really what you got out of my post? Seriously?
I’m saying don’t kid yourself, the people you voted for in the past - you’re already going to have to answer because they’ve done nothing to stop abortion in America in their political office. They may be against it but did nothing in Congress to stop it. So you’re on the hook already. You specifically. Me specifically. All of us specifically. I’ve been voting Republican as long as I could vote (post-Roe) and none of the Republicans I’ve voted for has done anything to shut down Roe.
Im not saying there isn’t a difference voting Republican vs Democrat, but I am also saying that if you think the past republicans you’ve voted for but have done nothing to overturn Roe - that you’re not going to be held responsible - only if you vote for a RINO? You’re deluding yourself. If you vote for a pro-choice RINO you’ll be held to account, true. But you’ve also voted for a bunch of republicans who said to you they were prolife but did nothing to change things in America about abortion, and you elected them too. And it’s 54 million aborted babies later.
That is what I am saying.
Second place is the first loser. Romney will be the first loser. What does it matter how much Obama wins by?
Am I wrong? I am? You Remember President Dole and President McCain don't you? I'll bet you voted for them too. I did. NOT ANYMORE!
“You have any other ideas?”
The business and livelihoods of Washington et all were in far more danger than yours. Buck up. Learn from their example.
No, I want to get Obama out of office and have him sent back to Kenya.
Is this type of stuff really necessary?
I have a hard time believing that you really believe this to be true. Sorry, but most of us who've decided to vote for Romney if he becomes the GOP nominee (all the way to to convention) are not doing this because we're “Romneywhores”! We are doing this because we're scared to death of the certainty that Obama will finish what he began in destroying our country!
OK, so if you can label us “Romneywhores” we can label you a “spoiled brat” who's having a fit because their candidate didn't get the nomination. Sounds fair...right? In reality, I think we understand your frustration; I just don't think your nasty label of those who take a contrary view from yours very helpful or necessary.
