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!!

NO ROMNEY!!

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!!

FUMR!! FUGOP!!

Long live the rebellion!!

Hope my message is clear.

Exactly!

I told people way back when that Rick Perry had a list of the folks that needed to be purged.

Sadly he was run out on a rail here at FR

But he just kicked the EPA in the nuts a couple of weeks ago.
He still has the list.

Like I said before, Personally, I say we write in Palin, whether she wants it orr not and push/publicize that campaign as a protest. If Newt fails, that’s all we can do.

Well we had plenty of candidates we begged to run, but didn’t. Young bloods, fresh faces, rising stars. None hopped in. We did do our part. Ryan who has been reelected a number of times and is brilliant, could not be convinced to run, even after he’s handed Obama it several times face to face. Christie, no. Jindal, no. Rubio, no. Palin, no. The tea party was behind these folks. We’d love to vote for one of them. They didn’t want to come to the dance.

It’s all well and good and you’re right we need to get people in from the bottom up, but when they get big and there’s a vacuum in the leadership and people are begging them to run and they don’t, it isn’t the tea party peoples’ fault.

“So for those pissed about Mittens I’m with you all, but if there is even one conservative you can vote for with a solid consciousness go out and vote, even if you leave everything else blank! As a grassroots effort we need to start focusing on conservatives at the state level.”

Totally with you. There is no way I would miss voting this cycle anyway. I relish the opportunity to vote against the NWO candidate, Barillard Robama. But most importantly, the ‘heads they win, tails we lose’ top of the ticket makes the downticket the most important it has ever been in my lifetime.

I’m not totally sure if we can do anything about spending since they haven’t passed a budget in 3 years.


The house controls the wallet. They can stop passing continuing resolutions and shut it down.

The task at hand is replacing enough of the GOPe with new fresh tea party types willing to actually starve the beast.

I’m with you Jim... there’s nothing remotely conservative or constitutionalist about Romney, and we can’t possibly use the GOP to restore America to its founding principles of limited, constitutional, decentralized government until we first reform it by purging the establishment RINOS wedded to the status quo out of their leadership positions and by defeating their candidates in the primaries/caucuses.

Unfortunately, the only way that these establishment RINOs and liberals in the party will get the message that they better not shove their candidates down our throats anymore is if we refuse to support their worthless candidates in the general elections as part of a “lesser of two evils” bargain. They must be made to understand that from now on we will not support their candidates against the enemy unless their candidates credibly stand for the opposite of what the enemy does rather than just a paler shade of the enemy’s agenda.

While it is unfortunate that we will likely have to endure another terrible four years of Obama due to Romney being shoved down our throats (KEY POINT: it will be the fault of the RINOs and the party establishment if that happens, not the fault of we true conservatives), sometimes in politics (as in life) you have to be willing to endure severe pain in the short term as the price you pay in order to carry out a strategy that will eventually lead to success in the long term. We “fix” the GOP first... THEN we use it as a finely chiseled weapon to defeat the democrats and undo the past century worth of collectivism. History (and logic) suggests that it will not work in the reverse order.

As my state hasn’t had it’s primary yet I’m throwing my support behind the remaining candidate that is most clearly the opposite of Romney/Obama.

I’m not doing any comparison, I am saying don’t be a liberal and kid yourself about who Newt is. He goes with what is popular at the moment. That’s not a philosophy, that isn’t visionary thinking, it’s looking at opinion polls and seeing what most people like at the moment and then trying to claim the issue as you’ve been for it all along.

If that were true, we'd have a long history of flip-flops from Newt. Yet we don't have that. He's been remarkably consistent in his career since he started in Congress in the 1970s. So whatever you think you know, it's wildly exaggerated in your mind.

Well, I’ve seen speculation that Rove doesn’t really care who wins the presidency. He’s mainly interested in killing the tea party because we are a direct threat to the RINO GOP-e hold on power. This may be pretty close to the truth.

It may sound out there, but it may also be that the Bush family are manipulating enough of this junk to make sure Jeb Bush has a chance in 2016

A populist did not get us the Contract for America and win the House in 1994—a visionary swimming against the tide did. For the previous 40 years, going along to get along was the way the Republicans became a permenant minority.

Newt doesn’t kiss people’s rear ends—he stakes a position and defends it. The popular opinion is that he needs to exit the race—so he stays in it!

He is the only Republican who will debate Obama right off the stage. He has set the tone of this campaign—look at the topic of energy for the past month. Obama had to respond to whom—Romney? No, he had to respond to Newt, and Newt gave it right back to him.

That is exactly what we need right now.

1 - Continue to support Newt in the primaries, or Santorum if he is still on the ballot, or even Paul if it comes to that.

No, we need to coalesce around ONE candidate to make sure we take full advantage of all winner-take-all style rules. That has to be Newt.

Unless you've got a window into the future the mantra of "Romney has no chance anyway" sounds a lot like a rationalization. Of course people who write in candidates who are not running or are running third party will be doing almost everything they can to make it a reality. They could still go all the way and just vote for 0bama, I guess. Yes, I did vote for Dole and I held my nose and voted for that skunk McCain. The reality was that they were the only viable opposition candidates on election day, so, rather than throw a tantrum and help usher in Clinton's second term and 0bama's first, I voted for them. True, America still lost those elections, but at least I bear none of the blame for it. Did you vote Perot and help give us Clinton's first term? Boy, the people who did that really taught...someone.

Okay, seriously, let me ask a couple questions.

1. We also need to have a VP in mind for the write in. Probably be good to figure that out, who would/should it be?

2. How do we convince enough people to vote for someone who has not campaigned for the presidency and may not want to be in a write-in campaign for president? Because if she does come out this way and loses, that will impact her ability to win a future election.

3. Is the purpose of the write-in campaign a protest/send a message, or a genuine attempt to win the presidency?

We need to develop a tea party contract with America with popular reforms. I think we should have the goal of moving the country towards constitutional freedom and western ethical standards to replace the culture of death and corruption; the elitists’ materialism which is born of the soullessness of social Marxism.

In addition to Tea Party events, Tea Party activists need to talk to immigrants and young people about American freedom’s ideology and civics and how liberty serves success and the pursuit of happiness in America. We should be recruiting Americans who escaped the burden of communism and fascism to talk to groups.

We should tap into some of our great conservatives (Bob Barr, Newt Grinrich, Dr. Sowell, etc.) for reform agenda items targeting overall problems we identify for our reform contract.

Yeah, we must rebel against this insanity; we can’t cooperate with it anymore. But we can take the opportunity to get more deeply educated, united and focused with a winning agenda and hit the road to organize and spread our power base. We can subvert them.

Again, you are correct.

The federal level is too corrupt and useless. We need to take back local control with conservatives and then our congressional reps will have to follow suit or lose thier jobs.

I can’t vote for Romney and I can’t vote for Lamar! or Corker either. They are as much the problem as Democrats. I still can’t figure out why so many of my fellow Tennesseans fall for these RINO’s. Bill Frist is a great guy but a Senate Majority leader he was not. Better than Trent Lott? Barely.

Romney lost to McCain and McCain lost to Obama and Romney will lose to Obama too. The vast majority of the rank and file Republicans do not trust him and do not want him. He’s a known RINO liar and socialist healthcare pusher. He’s got the RINO GOP-e rolling over for him, but he does not have the people and will never have them. Republican enthusiasm for this election will be non-existent. It already is.

Rove is no longer beamed into my TV, since I quit watching Fox News. Like Romney, Rove hates conservatives and particularly TEA Party conservatives. He's sure some "magnificent b#stard." /s.

I've never missed an election and provided I'm alive, I won't miss the up coming one in November either. I'll vote TEA Party Conservative wherever possible and against the democrat in local elections.

If Romney is the GOP-E’s nominee, I will write in the TEA Party candidate of my choice; Sarah Louise Palin. My state permits write in’s, and I want to see my vote counted and published in the newspaper, for proof and posterity.

I’ll attempt to answer all 3 together. The goal is to make a loud and clear protest against the GOP. If we miraculously pulled out a win, great! But it’s not likely. Possible yes, but a long shot.

As for a VP, Allen West is a thought. He has a couple boneheaded moves too, but is conservative and outspoken, charismatic and has no fear.

The goal is to make the people of this country aware WHY we refuse to vote Romney and strike the fear of God into the GOP for the next election...assuming there is one. Again, it does not matter if they ‘want it’ or not. What matters is we stick together in numbers and say “No more liberal GOP”.

Heck, I disowned two siblings (brothers in Ohio) this week when I learned they planned to vote for Obama in November.


you too? I am the only conservative in the family. I keep contact with my parents only for my kids. My parents also know if either of my kids come home spouting the love of Obama it’s the LAST time they see my kids with out me or my wife present. Thankfully both of my kids are learning the history of our foundings.. I heard my son say “that’s not right!” when Obama was spouting he’s crap on tv.

Things like that make a daddy proud :)

I have not talked to my sister other than in passing (shes mooching off mom and dad, lives in their home) for over a year.

I just got through reading the thread through to 363 and I'm amazed at some of the replies I've seen.
I've read comments people are willing to abandon their core personal principles for little more than political expediency and party loyalty.
They don't seem to realize that they're part of the problem. They don't seem to realize that their support of RINO candidates does more damage to this nation than withholding support and votes from a poor choice of presidential candidates.

To me it's pretty simple...people have got to stand firm and come to realize that @party over principle is going to bring about the ruination of both the GOP and this nation.

To me "party over principle" means that a person is asked to abandon their core principles merely to ensure that a Party candidate is elected to office. Usually a person has several core principles that they feel strongly about. I'm sure that you have more than one yourself.
So, to me, the question becomes which of your core principles are you going to abandon solely for the sake of Party advancement? And then a person has to ask themselves if they're ready, and willing, to abandon some of their core principles for the sake of the Party, will they abandon all of their core principles for the sake of the Party. Because as soon as you give in and abandon those principles there is a push at the next election for you to abandon even more of your principles because you did so the last time and the Party knows this.

And eventually you have to look at yourself in the mirror and realize that you have no core principles any longer as you've abandoned them over time for nothing more than a short term political victory.

I simply can't sell my birthright (eventually all of my core principles) for a mess of pottage (short term political victory) else I damn my own soul.

Though I had been a lifelong Democrat, after the high tech lynching of Clarence Thomas I vowed never to vote for a Democrat ever again.

I still wasn't ready to go against a lifetime of propaganda, so I went Perot in 92 and Harry Browne in 96.

I learned my lesson.

In 2000 I voted for one of my least favorite candidates and pulled the lever for Bush. (and damn glad I did)

In 2008, I voted for my least favorite major Republican I could possibly imagine.

I will vote for whatever Republican is on the ballot in 2012.....gladly.

The Libertarian Party (and other third parties) have been doing exactly this for decades, and what can they show for their efforts? Vote tallies that approach 5% in one national election after another. That strategy doesn't work.

What I want to know is how Obama gave the muslim brotherhood on egypt 1.8 billion without congressional approval.


Because no one stopped him. Congress is made up of a few good people and the rest are worthless.

We're here because the GOP has learned that we WILL hold our noses and vote party...

We're here because, contrary to popular opinion, Conservatives do not constitute the base of the Republican Party. If Conservatives did constitute the base of the Republican Party, then Mitt Romney would not be where he is right now, on the way to securing the nomination. The same goes for John McCain four years ago.

The Republican base may lean conservative, like most of the people in this country, but they are not Conservatives. This is the one, fundamental mistake, that people are making in regard to this whole exercise going on in this thread. The assumption that the Conservative members of Free Republic are the base of the GOP. We are not.

“If Romney is the GOP-E’s nominee, I will write in the TEA Party candidate of my choice; Sarah Louise Palin.”

Oh how I wish she were running!

One of the reason's I'm opting to vote for Romney (And yes, holding my nose), is due to Sarah's admonition on several occasions of “Anybody But Obama.”
