Hold off ....can Romney announce his claim for the win to the NRC without the delegates, which he’s now announced he’s doing this week? Unless Santorum stepped in and gave him his?

>> your candidate, Mitt Romney <<

MHGinTN, I've been posting on FreeRepublic for over a decade. Show me, any time, anywhere, where I EVER announced Mitt Romney was "my candidate" and endorsed him. If you cannot do so, the only liar is you and this conversation is over. Put up or shut up. I will not tolerate having my name smeared as a freeper who "supports Romney" for the Republican nomination when I was one of the FEW posters on here to vocally OPPOSE him over the last five years, including back when it was "popular" to support Romney over McCain & Huckabee in 2008. I have consistently opposed him ever since then, and to this day I would NOT advocate voting for him in the GOP primary. If you persist in purposely lying about who I support for President on this forum, I will have to report you to the mods.

>> I don't believe a word you write now <<

I don't believe a word you write either, and believe your insane incoherent rants might possibly be due to being under the influence of something while you post. Your ranks about the LDS church when I never once mentioned them, and bizarre statements that it's GOOD when Newt flip-flops on global warming (but BAD if anyone else does it!), defy any logic.

BUMp and thanks for the pings.

I have read all and I have to sign out.

Literally falling asleep.

Continue on with the good fight.

Romney the Party Leader? Have at it. The sooner the GOP-E goes to He//, the better for us and the TEA Party.

We are the Resistance. Rebellion starts from the bottom up.

We will damn sure vote, you betcha! We will vote TEA Party conservative patriots on all our respective ballots, from the bottom up.

We’ll oust every fossil incumbent RINO and every demonic -rat we can.

Freedom and Liberty are not free, but telling the truth comes natural to us.

We trust in Him, not politicans. Keep praying, and pray for those politicians who also pray and trust in God.

I’m praying for the Catholic convert, Newt Gingrich, who confessed his sins and accepted and worships our Lord and Savior.

Good night, everyone. God bless and Keep you all.

There are no easy answers’ but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.” - Ronald Reagan

I cannot believe Romney’s going to lay claim as the winner to the NRC meeting!! How can he do that without reaching the delegate count?

.......If there’s any question at all in any body’s mind of the utter arrogance and disregard for the voters this man has, and that this is all about what he believes is rightfully due him...then there is no help for those who cannot see this man for what he is!

And His wife is just like him saying.....”It’s his turn”....as if their school children standing in line. She needs to wise up that he lost his turn before and nobody wants him to have another.

This whole Primary might just as well have not taken place....the voters are simply immaterial in “THEIR” election. This is no longer a governance of the people, by the people, and for the people.......we’re just footing the bill for their egos, pockets, and power.

Golly I feel like I live in the Congo!

In AZ, there is some sort of RNC meeting of all teh state GOP leaders ON fRIDAY, the ones who really did a lot of the mischief in the primaries. Romney is speaking and the news reports are describing it as the meetin where romney will be given the GOP's cloak of the presumptive nominee... And that cloak is expected to carry much weight..

It's all a shadow dance, but with the establishment it will carry much much weight... it's all settled with the establishment now.. The heroes are just about gone.

STAY STRONG!!

"You people think you are so clever with your “Who is Ron Paul?” sarcastic comments but then whine about how bad Romney is. You put yourself in this corner and it’s attitudes like this that got us Romney as opposed to a true conservative Ron Paul. Thanks for helping Obama get re-elected."

LOL. Who's ron paul?
Never trust someone with two first names.

Since you refer to me as "you people" and post only to me, tell me, when have I ever posted about romney? where and when have I whined how bad he is?
I ignore him. He's not worth wasting time over or bandwidth.

Consider that it is you who is helping obama get re-elected. Blaming others is what he's good at, you fit right in with this characteristic.

Have a wonderful day!

So, tell me, who do we vote for? Romney=Obama=a vote for crimes against humanity.

One of those two has CHOSEN to belong to a 'church' that has committed 'crimes' against CHRISTIANITY!

He may have been BORN into it; but by now he has made a conscious decision to STAY in that church.

MORMON
ATTITUDES OF SUPERIORITY
 

  1. I’m Superior; I have a special gift of the holy Ghost -- you don’t!
  2. I’m Superior; I have God’s true priesthood power -- you don’t!
  3. I’m Superior; I can go in God’s secret Temple -- you can’t!
  4. I’m Superior; I’ve been Endowed with special Gifts and Knowledge -- you’re just normal!
  5. I’m Superior; I’ll have my family with me in heaven -- you’ll be with strangers!
  6. I’m Superior; I’m becoming a God -- you aren’t!
  7. I’m Superior; My women know their place as servants of man and yours don’t.
  8. I’m Superior; YOUR creeds are wrong because they come from man - mine comes from God (you can find each one printed in our Scriptures).
  9. I’m Superior; I don’t HAVE a creed - I’ve got 13 Articles of Faith.
10. I'm Superior; I have 4 "Bibles"-- the standard works (5 if you count the JST) -- you've only got one: in as far as it is translated correctly.
11. I’m Superior; I can lie with impunity about such things as church membership, church growth, church doctrine, church history, church influence, etc. —                           -- You can’t.
12. I’m Superior; I am right (everybody knows) when I say 'evangelical' Christians are lunatics -- 
                           -- You’re a hideous narrow-minded bigot, who is persecuting me by practicing discrimination by saying I'm not a Christian.
13. I'm Superior; I have a testimony about a prophet -- you don't.
14. I'm Superior; I have a Scripture-producing Amos 3:7 prophet -- you don't
15. I’m Superior; I have a Living Prophet who talks to god every day -- you have a dim-witted hireling of Satan who only talks to himself.
16. I'm Superior; I have my calling & election made sure -- you don't.
17. I’m Superior; I have magic underwear to protect me from the bogey man -- you don’t.
18. I’m Superior; I have secret clasps and grips to give the angel so I get admitted to the celestial kingdom -- you don’t ;so you can’t.
19. I'm Superior; I know secret handshake codes for afterlife entrances-- you don't.
20. I’m Superior; I will see Joseph Smith setting on the right hand of GOD, when I get to Mormon heaven, and he will recognize me and judge me favorably                              -- You’re on your own; when you get to wherever you’re going!
21. I’m Superior; I’m going to hie to Kolob -- you’re going to who knows where.
22. I’m Superior; I get to have a harem and act like a celestial stud for time and all eternity -- you don’t.
23. I’m Superior; I have sun stones, moon stones, sky stones, cloud stones, Saturn stones, and the evil eye of Osirus guarding my temple
                            -- You have nothing but a stupid cross.
24. I’m Superior; My church has billions in assets stashed away -- yours has taken a stupid vow of poverty.
25. I'm Superior; Last - we have the power to keep a whole race out of our priesthood if we wanted to reinsert our 148-year legacy  (we ARE still keeping an entire GENDER at bay!)
26.  I'm superior; I have the "higher law" -- everyone else "lives under the "lesser law' because I say so...(over and over).
 
 
Revision 46.5
Semi-Official creed of the EXclusive club of Freeper Flying Inmans.
All rights liable to be abused.

You can find that, and much more, at ProudProducers.com.

My favorite t-shirt allows you to insert your last name as the Veep, i.e. Galt/Night Hides Not 2012.

The polos are of very high quality, and I have several that I wear to work. As you might expect, I usually get quizzical looks, especially when I wear my "Danneskjold Repossessions" shirt.

Just to help you comprehend the terms, flip flop is when someone starts with “A”, flips to “B”, then flips back to “A”, then ... well, even you can get the gist of that. And your whine of not supporting milt rominy is hollow at best since you’re trying to establish an ‘inevitability’ for the lying high priest. And, BTW, report me and make my day, punk.

I’ve been reading this thread, and each time I run across your posts I think “one of these is not like the others.”

The difference in your post and others who are ABO is that others point to reason and logic.

You, on the other hands, use name calling and belittling.

I have heard it said that when a person sees only the negatives in others it is often because that same negative is something they don’t like about themselves.

A quote from you: “If only some of these Freeper posters could objectively read what they pen!!! Sad!!!”

Since you don’t appear to be objectively reading your own posts, allow me to give you an outside observation.

You seem hateful. You are doing nothing to convince me of your position. In fact, I find your posts to be immature and not worthy of respect.

I hope this helps. Perhaps now you can take your own advice and sensor your message before you embarrass yourself and FR further.

Sincerely,
Daisy

That’s my plan, too... unless someone of the caliber of Newt or Palin goes 3rd party... then that’s my solid plan.

The current GOP is a joke, and RINO Romney is the tragic punchline.

But stop telling us Republicans how bad our nominee is...this is a democracy. Actually, it's a republic.

You candidate(s) lost in the primaries and that’s life. My state hasn't even had it's primary yet. I'm tired of you Northeaster people deciding who I have to vote for.

But stop telling us Republicans.... FR is a site for conservatives, NOT Republicans. Maybe you should start your own website just for Republicans if you don't like what JimRob has to say.

Vote for they guy who’s speeding toward the cliff at 95 MPH instead of 100 MPH and hope I can do something with those extra few minutes of life

I appreciate your intentions, but if RINO Romney is 95% of Zer0 he can do far more damage to the country than Zer0 -- because of the R next to his name. Here's my logic, see if it resonates with you.

Why I am NEVER voting for Romney, even if he is the GOP nominee (shudder)

Many people, online and in-person, have started to shrug and say, "Oh well. Looks like Romney's gonna get the Republican nomination. I'll have to hold my nose and vote for him, like I voted for McCain.and all the other RINOs the GOP have shoved at us. After all, if he's only 80-90% like Obama then he's at least a little better than him, right?"

WRONG. and here’s why.

If Myth does 90% of what Zer0 does, he will do it WITH AN R NEXT TO HIS NAME.

What does this do? Well, Republicans in Congress who would otherwise balk at lib legislation if it were proposed by Zer0 WILL SIGN ON TO THE LEGISLATION BECAUSE IT IS PROPOSED BY THE LEADER OF THE GOP.

Imagine: amnesty, “tax fairness”, gutting the military and so much more ALL SAILING THROUGH CONGRESS because a “Republican” is at the helm of America. Contrast this with a second Obozo presidency where the GOP will dig in their heels and at least try to fight.

Yeah, I said it. An Obummer presidency is better for America than a Myth presidency (in the way that a cowpie sandwich is better than a meal of broken glass).

This is why we have to have a NOT-ROMNEY at the top of the ticket if we are to have any hope of digging America out of this hole we’re in. And if we don't, God help us... but I still WON'T vote for him. I'll vote for whichever acceptable, conservative 3rd party candidate is running (so my protest vote will have the most impact), or I'll write one in.

As JimRob says. NO ROMNEY, NO WAY!!

>The answer is yes. Mitt will appoint left-wing libs to the Supreme Court.

ALSO: he will appoint them with an R next to his name. Guaranteeing that the lib judge will sail through Congress faster than a greased pig down a waterslide.

Here’s a third choice to consider: 3. Write in your choice for POTUS or leave it blank and vote straight Republican down-ticket. If we control the House and Senate, we can shut Obama down. We can hold all of his judicial appointments. We can withhold all money. We can even impeach and convict Obama and Holder for the crimes we know they’ve committed. If we control both houses of Congress by a large majority, we can reverse much of what Obama’s done and he can’t do a damn thing to stop it. We could even pass a constitutional amendment or two and send them to the states for ratification. That’s the best case scenario we face, IMO. If Romney wins, it’s business as usual, especially if we control both houses. The GOP-e and RINOs will never listen to or consider conservatives again. But ... if we give them absolutely solid majorities in both houses of Congress but deny them the presidency, guess what? They’ll never ignore us again. Maybe we put them on notice with the above scenario and give them 4 years to reverse decades of big government. That’s the only way to stop Obama, RINOs, and big government all at the same time. Give it some thought. I will be.

That is RIGHT-ON! Lame duck Obama is less dangerous than Mitt Romney with a congress ready to vote for any disastrous policy coming from the White house...

all for the sake of "party unity"

That is nonesense, newbie. Your statement is exactly what I would expect somebody supporting Obama to say.

Is the term “newbie” meant to discredit me?

Think about it...

If Obama is president and faces Republican control of the House and Senate, they are FAR less likely to vote in favor of his policies because they know they’ll catch hell from voters.

Adversely, if Mitt Romney wanted a disastrous bill (see TARP, Sarbanes-Oxley and No Child Left Behind) the Republican congress is FAR MORE LIKELY to let it pass for the sake of “party unity”

It’s simple strategy. Obama will be a lame duck!

Just look at what Obama is doing. Look at who he has appointed, look at what Eric Holder is doing, look at the attacks on states that try to prevent voter fraud, etc. When Obama is a lame duck, he will go to even greater extreme. Romney will want to be reelected and can be pressured to the right while Obama is a left fanatic. And no, I have not been a Romney supporter. At least, Romney does not hate this country.

“Newt does support amnesty”

That’s a lie.

What conservative principles? We got a guy (Obama) destroying the country every day, more & more!!! And......no one on this site or any others can ever question my conservative principles!!! I was a Barry Goldwater supporter from 1958, onward!!! And....then, a staunch supporter of Ronnie Reagan!!! And.....I don’t like Romney!!! But Romney is only a Waffler.....Obama is a nation killer!!! Romney, with all his faults loves America. Obama hates it!!! And......if Obama is re-elected, you can pack all your so-called conservative principals in your closet forever!!! End of Story!!! If you folks can’t see the forest for the trees, you are all adrift at sea!!! Sad!!! I will speak or pen no more on this subject!!! Closed minds cannot be communicated with!!!

I won’t write in Sarah either, just for the reasons you
state, although I do respect her a great deal. Newt will get my vote in the primary, and I believe the solution you have put forth is the right one for the general. I just haven’t made my final decision on the Pres. vote for Nov. other than to say I will not vote for Romney or Obama.

What would make me speechless, and prove Newt to be who he says, is if he dropped the Republican party after November and became the candidate for one of the big third parties, I would hope the Constitution Party, and then pull in someone like Sarah Palin or Alan West or Rick Perry. The country would go nuts! What an impact that would make on the election.

I would love to live through such a time as that.

Anyway, here’s praying Romney doesn’t get the delegates.

Yes, he does, especially for those who have violated our laws for a long time. That is why my choice was Santorum. Even Romney has a stronger stand against illegal aliens than Newt.

10 Steps to a Legal Nation, by Newt Gingrich

http://www.newt.org/solutions/immigration/

“Under no circumstance can a path to citizenship be created which would allow those who have broken the law to receive precedence over those who patiently waited to become residents and citizens via the legal process. Those who adhered to our immigration law cannot be usurped by those who violated it.”
