Skip to comments.Voting for Romney? Where is your line in the sand? (Vanity)

I want to ask those who consider themselves conservatives, and are going to vote for Romney because he happens to have an (R) instead of a (D) behind his name on the ballot sheet, where do you draw your personal line in the sand and say "No more"? For stupid people reading this (liberals and DHS type workers), I don't mean violence - I mean not voting for "the lesser of two evils".
I plan to vote for the Constitution Party. But my state’s electoral votes are not up for grabs.
I vote to win - not to feel good.
I’d vote for 3 week old road kill if it got the current Prez out of office.
I’m having trouble with this too.
The lesser of two evils is still evil.
I went into this one with 3 flawed candidates with Rick Santorum being my last choice. That was my line in the sand.
For those who will inevitably come running with some crap about perfection or defeating Obama. Well, you can KMA.
My personal line in the sand is ANYBODY EXCEPT OBAMA. He is the most dangerous person who has ever set foot in the SHite House in my lifetime. By far.
When “conservatives” tell me that if we don't vote for Romney we'll get 4 more years of Obama and we can't afford that, that Romney is the lesser of two evils, I like to point out that the more evil the other guy gets, then also, the lesser can also be more evil and still be the lesser. The GOP evidently didn't learn their lesson in 2008. Conservatives largely stayed home because they didn't like their choices. The “share” of the vote that the GOP lost out on last time was the “no vote” share. When conservatives (or anyone else for that matter) doesn't vote, then they leave it to the pundits to try and determine what they were thinking and what their reasons were. That's why anyone who is not happy with their choices needs to at least show up and write in a vote so that their position is documented and can be analyzed for the fools that trying to run the show.
I haven't decided what I'm going to do in November yet, but I do know that I'm going to show up and vote, I just haven't decided if I'm voting for the lessor of two evils or writing in my choice.
THat should have said White House.
Explain how and why a second Obama term is the best option?
My sequence was: Palin - Bachmann - Cain - Gingrich - Santorum - Gingrich.
I tried to find someone I could support. Aside from Palin I was never fully energized about any of them -- but I wanted to do my part and support someone who might get Obama out of office.
At this point, I'm done. No Romney vote from me. No way, no how. The Republican Party does not own my vote. They have to earn it. They failed.
The line in the sand is Nobama.
Id vote for 3 week old road kill
just to try to beat out a 3 week old road kill with a (D)...
We voted for McCain we can vote for Romney. Romney will have a moist finger in the air; we just need to make sure the wind is blowing hard from the right.
It’s ABO for me...
The kicker is SCOTUS. Oh, I realize Rotney has an abysmal track record here in MA. That is why it is imperative to have a constitutionally conservative block and leadership in the Senate. I’d shudder to think of Rotney working with Reid on SCOTUS appointments.
Voting to me is a purely pragmatic decision. Government is a necessary evil, and my job as a citizen is to limit its evil encroachments on society. Currently, sitting in the White House is the most evil president in the history of the Republic. It is my absolute duty to do what one man can do to remove him.
“Id vote for 3 week old road kill if it got the current Prez out of office.”
EXACTLY my thoughts and intention.
