This is exactly what I’m talking about.
You accuse me of cowardice. The other day I was told by a charming freeper to “eat shit and die.”
I’ve explained my position several times. I stand by it.
Perhaps if I use the term The Republican Nominee instead of the Romney word, I could escape the abuse.
How are we going to discuss the upcoming election if we become a 3rd party site? There is no 3rd party. If you want one, start now for 2016 but in the meantime, get rid of Obama.
I read posts by otherwise sane seeming people who say ‘there are worse things than losing elections.’
What would that be? A pointless stand that nobody will remember and that won’t even be a ripple in history while a known tyrant who’s already announced he will be more free in a second term to ruin this country gets another term?
Nobody here has been able to convince me that this is a good policy.
And, yes, a majority of people here agree with me but, sadly, they are afraid to post their opinions for fear of receiving ugly comments or being banned.
Poor unappreciated liberal. How nobly you shoulder the evil conservative abuse while you just give and give.
At some point you have to decide that you love and respect yourself enough to find the support you need among people sympathetic to your plight. Good luck.

I would rather win this election and eject Obama from our White House in January, but not at the cost of replacing him with a fellow traveler who will do nothing to slow or alter the ruling class agenda.
There's still a slim chance that we can somehow get the real conservative over the finish line, but the pressure, inertia, and momentum of the ruling class' intent to push the liberal candidate forward may be unstoppable.
Therein lies the predicament for people of good character and conscience. We're being presented with a choice between two candidates that, underneath the hood, bear a striking resemblance to one another. What real choice is that?
Every one of us will react to this predicament in some way. How one reacts says everything about their character.
Some will insist that candidate R is better than candidate O, while refusing to honestly examine his record (which strongly indicates otherwise). That's like a girl who pretends she doesn't see her boyfriend's hand on her girlfriend's leg. In other words, they're too afraid to look, for fear of what they'll find. It's just easier to pretend that he's got a decent bone somewhere in his body, and that you'll be able to 'change' his ways.
Some will look at our choices and conclude that the ruling class is going to push their agenda through, no matter what we do through the civil mechanisms of politics. Those folks correctly see that Romney and Obama work for the same masters, and understand that we're being played like pawns in a very large and evil game.
I'm in the former group.
I'm one of those who recognize that we are now realistically at the point where the solemn compacts that have bound us together as a people, have been crushed under the boot heel of a small, yet incredibly determined leftist movement that has been slowly overthrowing our constitutional form of government for nearly a century.
The 'system' is broken. If people look at this election and don't see that we're being manipulated like herd animals, then they're more blinkered than I thought.
We're being led to the slaughter. Some will go willingly under the illusion that they're making a survival choice. Others who can see what's happening, will refuse to be culled, and will defiantly stand their ground.
A paradigm shift in reality is in order here for many of my fellow conservatives. That's going to require that they squarely face what's really happening here, and realize what their real choices are.
I agree with you.
Last night, I didn’t understand what was going on in the forum because I haven’t been here in a while.
However, I now understand a bit just from reading one reply to you.
I will post my name in agreement with your excellent post.
Thank you for being so daring.
I am supporting the constitution party for president. Wee need to bash both Obama and Romney and tie then together. and have someone with guts to taken on the GOP-E. The two party system has failed. I am voting for Virgil Goode the nominee.
