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".
It is not the best option. However, it is the inevitable option if Romney is the GOP nominee.
I am no longer voting for liberals whether they have an R or D by their name.
Candidates who promote abortion, homosexual agendas, government mandates, man made global warming, gun grabbers......are liberals.
I will vote against Obama.
“The lesser of two evils is still evil.”
Sounds cool. But we are talking four more years of a Marxist in MY White House. Anybody who would aid and abet that is either a moron or a ‘Rat.
I like to think that if even if Romney is the lesser of two evils, at the end of 4 years the Tea Party will be able to get a candidate to run against his incumbency. As stated before, at least with Romney there will be ways to hold his feet to the fire. On the flip side, if what has been set in motion the last four years is unstoppable maybe its better for a (D) to go down with his ship.
My line in the sand for POTUS: George W. Bush
I do not have a line in the sand for lower offices.
I will not support anyone more liberal than W for POTUS.
Santorum and Perry barely would have made the cut.
Bachman, Cain, Gingrich made it easily.
Pawlenty, Paul and Romney do not make it.
I live in deep blue Connecticut. My vote will not stop Obama from winning Connecticut’s electoral votes. I plan to help the Constitution Party out by boosting their popular vote.
Like Obama, Romney will be one-and-done. On to 2016.
If Romney doesn’t suffer a decisive defeat in November, he’s young enough to come back in 2016.
That’s part of the “reality” that most of the reality-leaners are not factoring in.
My view on this should be well known by now, I’m sick of getting insulted and skewered over this.
Consider the alternative.
If you were faced with the prospect of choosing between an agonizing and slow death, and being able to get about with only a few prosthetics and painkillers, but with expectation of living on for many years longer, which would you choose?
Obama, depend on it, is surrender to doom and despair. With Romney, there is a middling chance that we may rally and cripple the forces of darkness, with at least some hope to regaining what we once were.
Broken glass has been strewn about you on whichever path you take. Blood, toil, tears and sweat are the only things promised to you.
Make the best of it. Because that is the remaining choice.
I had considered voting for Cthulha ("Cthulhu for President. Why vote for a lesser evil?") but ultimately I guess I'll have to agree with you, hold my nose and, yet again, take the lesser evil. I hate it but I can't fathom what 4 more years of Obama would do to this country.
So Romney will save the Supreme Court?
If you say so...
Take a look at Romney’s appointments as governor and you will see that his picks are no better.
I’m voting for Romney, because I’m not wasting my vote for 4 years of total gridlock.
I’m voting to increase the tea party pressure on the GOPe. Romney may be a eggsucker of a candidate, but he will have to sign the bills that hit his desk. He might even cut the government by a billion.
Either way, someone’s ass is out in 2016; if we all make it that long.
Romney is not my first choice...but I don’t see where the question could possible be between him and obama!!! I’m hoping that we keep the house and take the senate too, that will keep Romney a bit more on the conservative side....I hope!
First term Romney vs lame duck Obama. Then in four years, "Romney 2016" vs post-Obama.
Romney is beyond my line in the sand.
I voted for my man NEWT in our AZ primary back in Feb - I’m not so foolish as to take my pen and go home because if I don’t vote for MITT in NOvember WE WON’T HAVE A HOME TO GO TO if Obama gets re-elected! IT’s that simple...I’ll change my affiliation after the election to whatever the new conservative party becomes (and it is coming - but not before I help vote OUTthe SCOURGE OF AMERICA - BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA! and I believe helping all THE REPUBLICAN CONGRESS MEN AND WOMEN get elected so we can have control over the house and senate!
Dunno, but I’m pretty sure Obama is on the other side of it.
