Romney: My Individual Mandate Health Care Plan Is Conservative
Mitt Romney ^ | March 23, 2010 | CNN

Posted on 04/29/2012 2:16:34 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Romney boasts that his anti-liberty government forced compulsory health insurance plan is "conservative." And he says "all of my positions are conservative." That would be forced/mandated compulsory health insurance (google Reagan on compulsory health insurance for the truth), homosexuals in the military, gun control, liberal judges, TARP, bailouts, too big to fail, the government takeover of GM, stimulus spending, global warming, planned parenthood, abortion, Roe v Wade, homosexual marriage, etc, etc, etc, all of which he has supported or still does.

Conservative my foot. I guess lying is conservative too?

Romney is a total fraud!!

We need to get ourselves to precinct meetings and work on the state party plank in our respective states, AND, most of all get our fannies elected as delegates to county, state and national conventions!

Good grief, if Ron Paul can do it, a few FREEPERS can rock it to the delegate chair.

This is where ALL the action takes place. The last of democracy is still available for the grassroots at your local school house, or wherever, on election night.

Lets, Cut. The. Mustard.

Until Newt actually drops out and endorses this DORK Romney we still have a certain way we can go. If Newt does drop out then conservatives have to make a choice whether or not they will stick to principle.

Paging demented “Deb”.

You didn't page Deb. You ping a member when you talk about the member.

BTW. It's been my experience here, that FReepers are some of the smartest folks on the whole of the Internet, and also prayerful, so FReepers in good standing, who might end up voting against the Marxist currently holding the presidency, will do so, after careful thought and a whole lot of prayer.

That won't be me, however. I can't and won't vote for the evil Romney and my decision was made long before this primary ever started.

I might add, that nothing is set in cement. I remain praying for Divine Intervention. The convention is still months away. Anything can happen in between.

A certain way to go? You mean till this coming Wednesday when Newt is planning on endorsing Romney.

If Newt does drop

That already happened unofficially. He is just going through the official formalities of suspending his campaign and endorsing Willard on Wednesday. Folks gotta let the Newt thing go. He's done.

People really do need to look at the history leading up to the revolution.

The colonists spent decades trying to negotiate and deal with the British who they didn’t see as enemies till the war came. Men like Ben Franklin were expressing their loyalty to Britain right up till the the war broke out. Deals were repeatedly made and broken and the Boston Massacre finally showed the colonists where they stood.

Mitt Romney, the Young guns support of Dick Lugar and other issues might just be our Boston Massacre moment.

Conservatives, we can prevent Romney from getting these 1,144 of PLEDGED delegates, it is time to bring down this RINO/GOPe house!!

And replace him with who? Everyone is either out, damaged, or disinterested. Face it, we're stuck with Mitt as the nominee. The best we can hope for is a conservative congress to keep him in check.

“Once Mitt is elected, these positions on issues will become the official Republican Party positions.

I can’t vote for that.”

Yeah the Romneybots have been thick as blue-bottle flies, trolling around here & pimping their boy—threatening, cajoling, whining for Mittens, the uber liberal.

Since they can’t seem to take a hint: that this is a conservative site, populated by conservatives, I’ll put it to music for them:

Hey, DUmmies!

I Can’t Go For That Milton (No Can Do)
by Hall and Oates
Easy, ready, willing, overtime,
Where does it stop, where do you dare me to draw the line.
You’ve got the body, now you want my soul,
Don’t even think about it, say no go.
I—I ‘ll do anything that you want me to do,
And I’ll do almost anything, that you want me too, ooh,
But I can’t go for Mitt, (No can do)
No, I can’t go for Mitt, (No can do)
Oh, I can’t go for Mitt, (No can do)
I can’t go for that, can’t go for that, can’t go for that.
I can’t go for being twice as nice,
I can’t go for just repeating the same old lines.
Use the body, now you want my soul,
Ooh, forget about it, now say no go.
I— I’ll do anything that you want me to do,
And I’ll do almost anything that you want me to do,
But I can’t go for that, (No can do)
No, I can’t go for that, (No can do)
Oh, I can’t go for that, (No can do)
I can’t go for that, can’t go for that, can’t go for that.
(Saxophone instrumental)
Oh, I— I’ll do anything that you want me to do,
And I’ll do almost anything that you want me to do,
But I can’t go for that, (No can do)
No, I can’t go for that, (No can do)
Oh, I can’t go for that, (No can do)
I can’t go for that, can’t go for that, can’t go for that, can’t go for that.
I can’t go for that, can’t go for that (No can do)
I can’t go, I can’t go— for that, (No can do)
Oh, I can’t go for that, (No can do)
Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no can do,
Oh, I can’t go for that, yeah, (No can do)
No, no, no, no, no, no.....

Won’t do much good, I’m afraid. The MittWits will vote for their boy no matter how patiently you try to explain to them what a disaster Romney would be. Some of the posters here are paid operatives from Bishop Romney’s campaign, I’m sure. The others just plug their ears when you try to speak some truth.

Why must you attack Loyalists ???

They were just as much Americans as the rebels...

most of them were flyover country 1776 style...

The American revolution was our first civil war...

Just like in 1861-65

1/3 of the country were on one side,
1/3 of the country was on the other and
1/3 could care less because it wasnt happening in their backyard...

Have your house burnt down and your land confiscated and see how youd fare...

Funny... what is Conservative in Massachusetts is considered communism in Mississippi. mitt is just like every other leftist entrail... he steals a word and tries to redefine it... well it will not work. There is nothing Conservative about killing babies and banning weapons and socialized medicine and high taxes and big government programs that fail... like the big dig and the bankrupting romneycare. I know what Conservative is... and it isn't mitt.

Excellent analogy cripple creek. I do think the Tea Party movement is based on a political revolution but the history of our founders is a wake up call as to why this beautiful country became so powerful and strong. We can't let their sacrifices be wasted.

I just love franklin's final answers.

Q. What used to be the pride of the Americans ?

A. To indulge in the fashions and manufactures of G. Britain.

Q. What is now their pride ?

A. To wear their old cloaths over again, till they can make new ones.

Okay, I've been pretty quiet, but now I'm throwing the BS flag.

Are you saying Mitt ran to Canada and avoided the draft, or that he took a LEGALLY AVAILABLE deferment?

Unless he took an illegal action to avoid service, he's not a draft dodger. We have enough to not like about him without going there.

I don’t have to figure anything out.

The deferments he got were the same deferments available to others on their Mormon missions and in academics.

He registered when his deferments were up and drew a high number, so he ended up not being called.

As far as I’m concerned, this is not an issue.

Many people have never served our country in the military, Nana. One branch of my family tree were Amish and went to Canada around the time of the civil war to avoid it, returning when the dust settled.

Does that make me personally worthy of scorn on behalf of my ancestors?

For what it's worth, I served. 21 years worth. To me, "draft dodger" means taking an illegal action to avoid service when you are called. That's where I'm coming from.

My ansestors were Loyalists during the revolution...

and I too am a veteran...

but Im talking about NONE of his generations of Romneys ever served...

From the first arriving...

Its unusual for a family to have nobody in some war at sometime...

Civil War
WWI
WWII
Korea
Vietnam
Grenada
Iraq I
Iraq II
Afghanistan

No Romney ever served in the military..

They avoided serving in the US military...

for 7 generations...

For my own family...

I had a 6th great grandfather die in the French Indian War in 1755

His FIL fought in Queen Anns War in 1711

His SIL died in the RW

A 3rd great grandfather fought in the War of 1812

My family lived in New Zealand during the Civil War but a great grandfather fought in the Maori Wars in the 1860s and his son my grandfather fought in the Boer War in Africa

We lost family in WWI and WWII

My brother and I and several cousins served during Nam

“Please explain to me why out of all the governors, conservative republicans and potential gop candidates the establishment opted for the very man that introduced socialized medicine to the USA?”

Because to many bribes were involved in Phony-Care, when declared (planned) unconstitutional, the next attempt will be made by their Mandate-Man to force-mandate it on the states.

So watch for the next propaganda that “we are going to put health-care back to the people, to the local level, to the states.”

Ever get a letter from the state requiring you to sign and date where and who your auto insurance is with? I see this coming with these Phony-Care fascists.
