Skip to comments.Voting for Romney? Where is your line in the sand? (Vanity)
Posted on 04/26/2012 9:18:03 AM PDT by Student0165
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".
Straw man argument.
DUers jerk off to these kinds of threads.
Terrorists crouch on carpets praising Allah for your success at dividing Republicans.
How soon before I see the Drudge headline that the once-great conservative website Free Republic is now flat-out PRO-OBAMA?
Shame on you.
Because the only consistant trait she has displayed is to know where her bread is buttered.
Thanks for your reply: At this point, to be a true conservative.
Was there anyone in the primary that met your standard?
DA-Da-Da, America-America...flags waving, crowds cheering...or....
Indeed (and thank you!). Also, I haven't seen voters as generally unenthusiastic, and even downright angry, as they are since 1992.
It seems as though you let your slip show on another thread...”Let the kenyan keep it another 4 years.”
And you serve what purpose? (I mean besides pretending to be a “student”.) Let me guess...Third Party?
Won’t work this time. Obama and his march to Marxism is over. And there’s nothing you can do about it.
Naive, at best.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. The Republican Party establishment has withstood the tea-party revolution.
The tricorne-hat wearing, Gadsden-flag waving insurgents were nowhere near the Republican National Committees annual meeting of state chairman, which wrapped up at a posh resort here Saturday afternoon.
Many Republicans here said that tea-party activists now understand that things will run more smoothly if those with experience are in charge rather than those who put a premium on ideology over process.

All I did was ask a question. It is so telling to see the fear and hatred come out of the Romneybots. Interesting.
I find your post doubly-ironic, considering your tagline.
BTW: Everything you talk about doing to create this third party could be done within the GOP easier and quicker.
If you can’t exercise the same skills and success within the party, I don’t believe you can do it outside. It’s been done before, it can be done again.
The problem this primary was a weak field and disunity - no organizing behind a single candidate opposed to Romney.
No, you have misapplied the term “straw man argument”. Does not fit in response to my personal statement, which is provable. Nothing about my statement was a construction to be demolished.
“...if the only way to get rid of Obama is to cast a vote for Romney then thats what Ill have to do (even it if means walking outside and throwing up afterwards).”
I’ve already scheduled an appointment with my doctor to have my tongue stitched back together after I pull the lever for RINO-Romney.
Whatever it takes to be get the zer0 out!
You mean the guy who was polling 40+% consistently throughout June of 1992? The guy who only lost because he more or less self-destructed like a crazy man?
Not actually a very good example to make your case. A non-crazy conservative could mount a winning campaign.
Like it or not, politics is a numbers game, and the majority of the electorate is not conservative.
Sure they are - they just need to be made to understand this fact.
Harsh judgment. Oh well, that is the presstitutes’ line they’ve spread about her. For those willing to dig into the subject, it is possible to discover what you wrote is not quite the truth.
How do you NOT know this?
———In four years we will have other candidates———
The rest of the lesson is very plainly visible here on Free Republic. There is no such thing as a “Conservative”. There is an extremely wide variation of views with specifics among individuals quite variable. There was no consensus enabling one candidate to be thrust the forefront. It seemed that what was good didn’t matter. It was that which caused one to be against that prevailed.The result was smaller coalitions of those who could accept that which others, other conservatives disdained.
Then there is poor ol’ pissant. He got so riled and vociferous, he got zotted.
My solution is a CONSERVATIVE SECONDARY. A method must be developed to weigh and measure qualifications, develop consensus, and result in one or at most two conservative candidates in the Republican Primary.
We do not need a third party. We need a strong Conservative Coalition residing under the Republican tent. It might be a Tea Party Coalition but with several competing Tea Parties it may never come to pass. Bravado and “By God I won’t ever vote RINO” must be softened by developing real strength in a coalition.
Until such a coalition is existing and functioning, the probability for prevailing at a national level is slim.
I think it should be Newt’s job and legacy to begin just such an effort
I'd love to see how the Founding Fathers would contend with today's massive and corrupt government beaurocracy and dumbed-down, left-leaning electorate.
Not naive. Those state chairman you blame, can be replaced. They very often are.
If you can’t organize and replace those positions in the GOP, you can’t do the same thing in a third party - it’s the same work and skills.
Further, if you have a third-party, you’ll have the identical task of filling those slots with those folks you want - and the same arguments and fights.
The only difference is you have a ton of extra work for a new party that you don’t have organizing and changing an existing party.
