Uh oh...romney is worse than obama!
(But I already knew that.)
He will be the end of conservatism. How can a conservative in honor reject obama’s abortion record but accept romney’s?
How can he reject obama’s support for the gay agenda and accept romney’s?
How can he reject obama’s support for higher taxes and accept romney’s huge increases as governor?
A conservative voting for romney is a hypocrite.
I know, just a pet peeve. I just was arguing with a Paultard on another forum regarding Paul’s commentary in Liberty Defined that he is fine with a state level individual mandate because the Constitution only restricts the fed, not States (except where clearly implied)...
..it is the flawed belief that rights are not inalienable but are just things at the whim of big brother.
A vote for Romney IS a vote for Obama. They are one and the same.
GO NEWT GO......
It may be near impossible, but we need to fight on for the survival of our Republic.
I'll vote for Obama, just to make a statement.
The convention changes nothing. The chart will remain the same. Obama and Romney will still be the abortionist, homosexual agenda pushing, global warming hoax pushing, gun grabbing, big government, mandate pushing, liberal judge appointing, Keynesian stimulus pushing, inalienable rights denying, statist/socialist/fascist bastards they are today!
That is just great, Jim. Thanks.
Until Saturday, I didn’t like any of the candidates. I watched Newt’s NRA speech and changed my mind. I will vote for Newt, unless Palin gets the nomination in the convention.
I hope Newt wins the nomination but I am not holding my breath!
I ask only one question. Do y'all really believe that Mittens would nominate a Pagan or Sotomayor to the SC? I call that quit significant.
I counted 18 exclamation points in your last post. 18.
I have no idea what you were raving about, but it sounded like you want me to vote for a back-stabbing, abortion supporting, gay marriage mandating, tax raising, job killing, anti-gun, Socialist.
Did I hear you right?
Every politician has warts, it is the nature of who politics attracts. You aren’t going to get a perfect candidate. But, considering we looking for someone to be Commander in Chief of the US Armed Forces, I’ll take Newt’s warts over Obama’s disease any day.
I have no doubt that Newt could be trusted as Commander in Chief of the US Armed Forces and considering he would have a re-election in 2016, we would have something we can hold his feet to the fire on for the issues he is not Conservative on.
Imagine, however, Obama winning re-election. If you think it is bad now, imagine Obama with no re-election to think about.
Imagine Obama knowing he has just four more years to do what he wants, that’s it, all or nothing.
Imagine Obama knowing he never has to face the judgment of voters again. He’ll believe he has unlimited power.
Imagine Obama believing that he was given a blank check by the voters for his positions via a ‘mandate’.
Imagine Obama and Congress knowing they won.
Imagine Obama filling up the courts- positions that last decades beyond his terms.
Imagining Obama being re-elected with what is basically absolute power makes Newt’s warts seem trivial.
“A conservative voting for romney is a hypocrite.”
Anyone voting for Romney is not a real conservative.... not in my book.
If Newt does not succeed at the convention, who will FReepers be voting for on the Presidential line? Would having a Free Republic endorsed third-party candidate help to send a message?
