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.
Probably need to donate money to the cause and get some high-profile spokespeople behind them. Might be a good cause for Santorum to support over the next 4 years to keep his name out there.
We are the resistance!! Either join the fight or run...
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?
It will be interesting to see if you get a reasonable reply... Other than more name calling and “go somewhere else” which seems to be the overwhelming norm in this thread to those who ask questions.
Whatever, you are delusional and a nut. Are you advocating taking up arms in November ?
Well, you begin the fight by not rolling over for the socialist bastards. You do not vote for Romney number one. And you tell them why loud and clear before the convention. If we can wrest it away from Romney at the convention, fine, but if not we stick to our guns. He’s going to lose anyway, so why roll over for a loser? And you join your local tea party and attend every tea party rally you can get to (well, except for the tea party groups who rat out for Romney). And no matter what happens you turn out on election day or sooner to vote for every conservative on your ballot. We need to control every state and local government we can along with the house and the senate. We the people must restore the tenth amendment and our individual rights. We do this by controlling local governments on up. Those who have a mind to should join and take over their local GOP committees.
A lot of the tea party people are caving. Some did right away. The problem is the senior establishment folks assign the committee assignments and they can totally isolate the tea party winners and basically render them powerless in addition to giving them zero campaign help and funds and even running candidates against them. I am not sure how we get around this problem.
you will also have voted against neither....brilliant
Shirley you jest.
It’s all about grass roots and down ticket votes for congress and senate at this point.
Um....because it's his website?
Romneywhores unite!!!....somewhere else.
Is this type of stuff really necessary?
Well said. Jim?
I’m basing that on what many are saying here, voting but writing in Palin/Newt. Some may vote Libertarian or Constitution party I guess.
It’s either GOP-elite or GOP-establishment. Both seem to work okay.
That is understandable. Who will you vote for? I have no clue.
IMO, Obama being reelected means Harry Reid remains as Majority Leader, which means four more years of record debt, enormous tax increases, two or three Obama appointees to the Supreme Court, and single-payor healthcare.
We'll never survive that.
BINGO!!! These people are so short sighted. If enough of these purists stay home, we won’t hold the house or take the senate!
Is that what some want? 2009 - 2011 all over again?
Surely you jest. Romney's "severely conservative." /s
Know what Bob Beckel said today on The Five about Romney's "severely conservative" statement? They (liberals) will be repeating that loudly and often in ads all over the country.
“My 2 cents is that we’ve gotten to this point because we have telegraphed to the establishment Republicans that we will vote for whoever they put up. “
DING DING DING DING DING!!!!!!!!
We have a winner!
This is EXACTLY what I have been trying to get through the heads of these chicken crap “whoever the gop tells me to vote for” types.
Every stinking one of you who has said “I will vote for Romney if he is my only choice” ARE RESPONSIBLE for Romney getting to where he is.
(I bet the rino-chickens are going to squawk at having the tables turned back at them!)
Here’s what I know...today, here, now.
Romney is an committed pro-choice/abortionist. If you vote for him, you are defacto supporting that. Do you deny that? Yes/no?
The bastard is proud of it.
Contributed cash and law to it.
His record is what it is. No equivocating, no passing it off/ducking it, he’s proud of it. What he says is not the issue.
Bottom line, vote Romney, support dead babies.
It appears some in this thread have chosen to use hate and threats as an argument.
Heck, we have power voting out the local douches from the local school board.
Stay focused people!
And while not my favorite Founding Father..
"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton
Newt is the last populist standing. Let’s not kid ourselves about who he is, either.
So join the clan at DU.
Problem with that line of thought is that it guarantees the establishment will always pick a rino. As you can see, the guy with 25% most of the time is the presumed winner because we all know that people will hold their noses and vote for him eventually.
Only against Obama does someone like Romney even have a chance of getting the votes of conservatives. But since the overlay of counties he has won in primaries is eerily similar to those won by Obama in 08, what chance is there that the rino or hold your nose voters in those counties will outweigh the honest D voters in the real contest?
And should he win? The benefit of slouching more slowly to Gomorrah is what? My children and grandchildren, in addition to paying our fiscal debt, have to fight with that many fewer supports, people who understand what Freedom was, or armaments (should it come to that)? The corner that I see is destruction now, or destruction later, and our children may not have the financial, political, educational, technological, or martial freedom to win.
This could all become moot, as the other side keeps trying our different “wars” - the war on the 99%, on women, on blacks, on... - to see which one will light the powder keg. My honest feeling is that barring a third great awakening, which includes a serious reconciling of all these fragmentary groups, we will not see much longer as a nation, regardless of who wins the next election, if we make that far.
My write in may not stop the encroaching flood, but it may help control when the dam bursts and the direction of the flow.
Yes! EXACTLY! But not the way you meant. That is PROOF that Obama will win against Romney, no matter what.
Not enough people was the problem. Some third party person will emerge, maybe Ron Paul? If enough Conservatives vote 3rd party, GOPe will get the message.
OUR WAY or the HIGHWAY. Time to play hardball.
The soul of the country is at stake.
I would like to be the guy who pulls the lever on the catapult that sends him back to Kenya.
The soul of the country is at stake.
A dictator, such as Obama, only has the power that the people give him.
Currently, at least 40 % of American voters are gladly willing to give Obama the necessary power to continue his dictatorship.
Dictator Obama has designed Obamacare to become active only AFTER he is re-elected, thus enabling THE NINE SUPREMES to delay ruling on the Constitutionality of the dictate of the individual mandate until Obama is once again the Illegal Foreign White House Occupier, (IFWHO).
The purpose of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack is simple: 1.) Regulate; 2.) Control; and 3.) Destroy. By his own count he as achieved 60 % of his goals, according to the note he says he carries in his pocket.
Obamas obvious deep hatred of America could have only come from his childhood.
Since there are no known networks of childhood friends from Obamas past, Obama was probably a member of a Marxist sleeper cell funded by wealthy men with a Marxist view of the World.
The lack of credible evidence that has NOT been forged requires a long-term, highly skilled and well-funded support group.
Who the key members of Obamas probable support group and probable sleeper cell were and are is well known to the CIA and the FBI.
Will the Citizen Journalists such as Breitbart Editor Joel Pollack be able to out-spy these two tax-funded spy entities?
BTW, forget about the LAM, (Liberal Agenda Media), as they are saving their notes to write their tell-all Obama books after Obama has SAFELY retired back home in Kenya.
BTW, BTW, to all the doubters of the above speculation: what does your gut tell you?
to question my integrity is asinine. I intend to vote against Obama...you don't. Think of the third party idiots that have drained votes from possible winners over the years. Join that bunch of malcontents if you wish, I'm going to vote against Obama. (my vote counts, yours doesn't.!!!
No idiot, I advocated an organized protest write in.
Delusional nut indeed.
Sarah Palin PAC pays for space in Tampa (Woo Hoo!)
Thank you for a clear and concise answer. That has pretty much been my plan all along.
Then take the hint.
I really don’t care what an Obama supporter or a Romneywhore thinks of me.
I don’t really value the political opinion of someone who supports a candidate who is pro abortion, pro Planned Parenthood, a supporter of socialized medicine, global warming, cap and trade, forcing Catholic hospitals to violate their faith, class warfare tax systems, TARP, liberal judges, etc. Since both Romney and Obama have the positions on all those issues, their supporters fall in the same category.
I’m pretty sure this is a conservative website, not one dedicated to political expediency and electing liberal slime balls.
We sure can’t trust that to the Professional Politicians.
We need to hit them at every level
Well, that “populist” has never been ashamed to stand with Tea Party or 9-12 Patriots across the land.
Newt is a darn sight better than Romney.
To Golub with Romney!
Prayer and prayer chains will help. So many times when things were bleak for my hubby and me, God gave us opportunities that came from out-of-the-blue (literally) with jobs, child care and buyers for homes we needed to sell. It is VERY powerful. We will be praying for Newt to resurrect his campaign.
Newt has the intelligence to be a great leader and one who could debate Obama in ways that would make the teleprompter-IQ-speaker squirm. Romney has no such skill. He has lots of money and lots of influential cohorts, but he's NOT the best candidate by a longshot.
Agreed. You have to live to fight another day (I think that’s how the saying goes)
They can't pass any health care law or tax increases as long as we control the House. I'm not totally sure if we can do anything about spending since they haven't passed a budget in 3 years.
So your solution (which you acknowledge will usher in Obama and his awful wife for a victorious 2nd term) is to vote for Ron Paul?
Ugh, ugh and ugh!
I for one cannot see myself voting for Mitt Romney. He does NOT want our vote. He does not want anybody to say that he had won because of the conservative vote. In fact, he wants the opposite to be said. That’s obvious! Romney wants America and the liberal media to see that he won withOUT us.
The only alternative is try our best to NOT let Romney win the Republican nomination by supporting Newt Gingrich now.
And if Romney still wins we must prepare for another 4 years of Obama by replacing do nothing John Boehner and the rest of the deadwood in the House with Constituionalists who will go after all the illegal activities committed by this White House and we must also win a Senate that will support us.
We need people in Congress who will hold this crooked White House accountable.
JOHN BOEHNER must GO!
There are not many people who will refuse to vote for a GOP presidential candidate and then enthusiastically vote for a GOP House or Senate candidate, especially when those candidates endorse the Presidential nominee. Not going to happen.
I understand the opposition to Romney - I voted for Rick Santorum in the Ohio primary. But, I think we are fooling ourselves if we think Romney loses big to Obama but somehow, magically, we win the Senate. Obama crusing to reelection means Obama coattails, and it's at least possible that we lose the House in that scenario, too. If nothing else, it guarantees a liberal majority on the Supreme Court for two decades or more.
Vote conservative only. Beat the snot out of the socialist RINOS (politically speaking). Rally and protest every chance you get. Be loud and proud. Support your local conservative candidates. Join your local GOP committee and help the conservatives take it over. Newt has great ideas if we can get him on the ballot, but he’s obviously a long shot. Write to the GOP and tell them to shove Romney and tell them why. And tell them why you no longer send them money.
Do not roll over for the RINOs for any reason whatsoever. They’ll only screw you in the end.
Do not listen to or be swayed by the fools and tools pushing RINOs. They are not our friends.
Bet you can name a slew of conservative accomplishments by the speaker..GO NEWT!
LOL, surprised it took so long!
100 years since the sinking of the Titanic this week.
Let me give you my Titanic metaphor.
I will stay at my post and go down with the ship, rather than take a seat in a lifeboat, with the women and children.
Do you think 8 years of Clinton was good for the country and taught everyone some kind of lesson?
