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.
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.
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.
I have always been proud to be a freeper, and never more proud when you, JR appeared in DC at a rally. I still respect you for all the good you have done for the conservatives. You have not changed, but I fear the way we elect presidents has changed.
Oh man. I hate this, Jim. It’s your house and you don’t have to have anyone in it if you don’t want. And you can clean house anytime and as often as you think you should.
I’m afraid I’m a candidate for eviction. I’ll be voting for Romney and insisting on a Conservative Veep. I’ll vote for every Conservative I can from dog catcher up. Realistically, it’s the best I can do. I believe Romney can win. I’ll show myself the door. Thanks for the years. :).
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.
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.
What I want to know is how Obama gave the muslim brotherhood on egypt 1.8 billion without congressional approval.
This Gubermint is broke BAD!!!
The Reality That IS Coming
Newt will back Romney
Santurom will back Romney
Rush Limbaugh will back Romney
Sarah Palin will back Romney
Mak Levin ... all will back Romney
Ronald Reagan ....if he was alive and ticking ....yep he would back Romney
Im just stating the obvious folks ....no comment on good or bad,right or wrong...its just the nature of the political beast.
Id love to be wrong on this but I dont think I am.
Ive seen it before and I will see it again
Did that last night. You ignored it.
So I treat you with the respect you earned. No more, no less.
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?
I’d be with Newt in a heartbeat if he can pull it off. He’s the best and most experienced conservative for the job of all running.
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.
“I really dont care what an Obama supporter or a Romneywhore thinks of me.”
Why do you feel the need to resort to name-calling? That is very immature. Can’t you have a discussion in a reasonable adult manner?
Rove’s not the only one interested in killing the tea party. Ann Coulter comes to mind right away as does Dana Perino. Of course all three are heavy rotation Fox News contributors.
Glad to see your awake and whats coming. Now, do you really think this ass wipe is going to beat the Nazi digger? (N) Well then your not awake enough!!
are you calling me an idiot?
I won’t stoop to your level and the rest of your post will be ignored.
If that is true what is the point of trying to recruit conservatives from the ground up, if none of them are going to run for the bigger offices because “who wants the job”?
I know you’re tongue-in-cheek there :) but I was being sober about it.
