First of all, not a newb.. just a purge victim from the primaries.
JimRob posted almost a month ago about a so called truce between Romney supporters and the rest of the FReeper community. Since then, it appears the left has little job to do in driving a wedge into the right wing, we are doing it still ourselves.
Were is this truce? How come all I see on here is Alinsky tactics of divide and conquer? Today there was a post about Evil Mittie and him fundraising with morning after pill distributors. And the "true blue conservatives" pounce, little do they know that this pill manufacturer is one of the largest generic pill manufactuyrers in the world.. who produce all kind of medicine, even Augmentin, Azithromycin and Cipro, common anti-biotics..
This so called truce makes me sick. Can't wait to read the next half-baked anti-Romney article and the zealot FReepers who will eat up its every word because it furthers the narrative of Romney that THEY want him to fit into.
I'm not upset that people have beliefs that won't "allow" them to vote for Romney.. but what really irritates me is this active campaigning against people who would support Romney.. what game are you trying to pull? To deliver us into 4 more years of Obama servitude, for what purpose?? It strengthens conservatives? Talk about a phyyric victory. If you don't support Romney fine, but we are all anti-Obama here.. lets stay on focus.
>>Yes, unless you want a continuous advance of leftward movement throughout the entire Republican Party<<
Maybe the answer is that some of us don’t really care about the Republican party. We love America.
Gee, that's awful nice of you. Any other principles I have to check at the door before I'm 'allowed' to support real conservatives?
Actually, that was more about the absurdity of a poster who almost assuredly has taken Teva generics and has some of them in his medicine cabinet right now, as do his follow-on groupies.
It would be like some urban Libtard screaming about gun control on DU, complaining a Dem candidate went to an NRA "Golden Bullseye" dinner; only for said urban Libtard to pass by his gun cabinet on the way to bed, mentally noting low stock on Barnes VOR-TX.
Yeah. What could be wrong about that?
Sooooooo many things can happen between now and then only a fool gets into pretending that his boy is going to get the nomination.
My girls are
Tamara-5 Years old
Layla-3 years old
and Fatima is 6 months old
Recall how they kept voting until their boy won?
That's a Democrat trick ~ pure RINO.
Priebus was put there to make sure Romney got the nomination.
Question is. . .are you staying home on election day?
Do you have a lot of confidence in them being able to pull it off?
You make a very good point in that Romney is not conservative enough. But I think its important to let the liberal left know that O’s agenda is totally unacceptable to the extent that the nation throws him out of the bus.
I think if enough Tparty type conservatives are in the congress, Romney wont be able to do what you predict, even if he dared. A lot of lifelong GOP congress persons are at risk of losing to the genuine conservative movement. They are the ones who propose legislation...besides Romney is so without passion, he wont have the gumption to force the alleged ‘agenda’ you claim he has.
Nice to see you. Thanks for the backup.
What do you not understand. Romney is a shifter, I may not like his prior stances, but he’s movable. And I intend to get out there and vote for every truly conservative candidate headed for Congress. Once we get the establishment RINO’s out of Congress, it won’t matter what Romney wants...however we will also have REMOVED the islamofascist commie out the White House whose intention is to totally destroy the US as we know it. Do you want to spend another four years with a man sitting in our White House with a veto pen? If you do, our Conservatives we put in Congress are going to have an uphill battle trying to dig us out of this quagmire.
Now you can sit on your couch on top of your high horse, and assure we lose this battle. Or you can help us win it. Your choice.
However, every 6 months she goes out lurking until she finds an unprotected new born and she creeps into the house and kills it.
We'd still give her a gurney ride no matter how much good she'd done!
You paint a picture in absolute terms and nothing works that way. It’s all a matter of varying degrees of probability.
I do not care for Romney and if it was MY choice to pick our nominee I would have chosen Gingrich (I voted for him) based purely on his intelligence and great strength in presenting his views not to mention his forceful and confident style.
I lost and as much as I wanted my guy to win I also realized there maybe no future time to try again if we don’t at least make the first step to stop the bleeding. I find it truly ludicrous that people would put Romney in the same category as Obama. In fact I would find it ludicrous to assume ANYONE currently in the picture is even close to being as awful as Obama and that would include any Democrats, even (gag)Harry Reid.
The cracks are already showing in this uber-RINO as he begins prematurely waffling on important issues.
He won’t need our “help” in defeating him. Who wants a waffle on our national plate? He’s actually a much bigger unknown than Obama at this point in the game last time.
you are ab obama supporter....... be careful where you barf and don’t make a mess
In what parallel universe did these two actually win and do mean things to you?
These folks are beyond logic and reason.
Which is where Romney Republicanism inevitably leads.
Hey, you're running for President. I'm sure you just heal yourself...
The general public sees that in a candidate and recoils.
We still need a candidate who can draw in the party base AND attract Democrats from specific factions if we are going to win.
Otherwise, this guy has fundamentals that are simply too negative to create any interest in having him as President.
Yours was the most persuasive post I’ve read on FR. Until the final paragraph. Then you became insulting, just as the leftists do. You blew away the good you might have done.
Your contempt is noted.
Romney is a liar who has governed from the left and who now claims to be on the right.
With Obama there is no chance that he will govern on the right. For example there is a 100% chance that Obama will continue to support the slaughter of the unborn. With Romney, the lying shifty "shifter" who is known to shift, there is some chance, albeit small chance, that he will govern on the right as he claims.
Come election day I will considered that.
But at this point in time I can not support Romney.
I hear ya.
But what evidence is there that this shifty person truly will be beneficial in any way to further Conservatism in America? I see none. I see evidence to the contrary.
Will vote my conscience this time with no hesitation or regret.
“Do you have a lot of confidence in them being able to pull it off?”
Pull what off? Riots in Detroit? Heck man its been going on for years now-since the liberal socialists have run that city in fact. There are areas there that the cops dont even bother to respond to murders now.
Take a long look at the elections in Europe. Two more socialists governments have been put into power-one being out and out NAZI. We re-elect Obama and this government will cease to exist. He will become the dictator we all claim is now, only he will do so out in the open.
So the drug dealer is innocent? Its only the drug user that is to blame?
I've been wondering if some of these hacking attempts have been successful in the case of dormant accounts. Any way to verify this? Of course if the account holder gives permission to access the account to a like-minded zotee, I guess there's not much to be done.
Everything would be fine and dandy except that Romney isnt a conservative.
That's true! He is not a conservative. And he won the nomination without needing us to win it.
This is the part I don't understand. Surely all Romney's support didn't come from Democrats in open primary states. Are there really that many people in the Republican Party who are Romneyite liberals?
Who are they? Where are they coming from? What do we do about them?
Brings to mind Butch and Sundance looking over their shoulders at the posse following.
When they would stand in the way of the unalienable Right to Life, that is bad enough, but to demand I support them in that crosses a line which I cannot cross.
JimRob posted almost a month ago about a so called truce... Since then, it appears the left has little job to do in driving a wedge into the right wing, we are doing it still ourselves.
The majority of Republicans are ‘moderates’ (that’s a liberal that won’t admit it). Numerically, RINOs are actually conservatives.
This is especially true of Republicans in elective office. Other people’s money is just too great a temptation to resist.
Bottom line: You can’t cheat an honest electorate.
Truce means everybody can have their opinion about this.
Go ahead and vote for Myth, and you won’t get ousted for that view.
Go ahead and point out Myth’s untrustworthiness, and say you won’t vote for him — that’s your right to an opinion.
There’s room at FR for both. That’s what the truce is.
But check all insults at the door before visiting FR.
There are more ‘moderates’ and liberals in the Republican Party than there are conservatives, and always has been. Conservatives are outsiders. The Establishment may be forced to throw them a bone now and then, but conservatives are still outsiders.
> But check all insults at the door before visiting FR.
Absolutely. Defend your opinion, use facts (unlike libs), but attacking your fellow Conservatives on FR is not right.
So mathematically the Mittster doesn't need the Conservative vote to win. Good strategy, I plan on doing my part.
That’s why they have to fool conservatives; they don’t need them in the selection process but they do need them to win in November. They count on conservatives suffering Stockholm Syndrome.
> There are more moderates and liberals in the Republican Party than there are conservatives, and always has been.
Really? I wish you would do what your tagline says and look it up.
Even lib pollsters at Gallup know that the largest self-identifying political group in the US — and that includes Dims and Independents.
And if you scroll down, you’ll see a whopping 71% of Republicans identify themselves as Conservatives, contrast with 23% moderate and 4% (confused or mentally deficient) liberal.
A more conservative (accurate) poll would probably find higher numbers for our side.
(that’s how it’s done FRiends — disagreeing with facts, no insults)
I understand the MSM has convinced people that polls somehow constitute facts. What people tell others they believe and how people actually behave are frequently different.
More of an indication that conservatism has been defined down.
Okay, I’ll bite — what’s the evidence that conservatives don’t constitute a plurality in the US and a whopping majority in the GOP?
Because all the data I’m looking at say that WE surround THEM.
“.....IOW, we will not be better off with Mitt Romney. And the GOP, as per usual, will not resist Romney the same way they would resist Obama.....”
You do know that a PRESIDENT Romney will not be producing the legislation in 2013 don’t you? The Tea Party factions currently in the House have not, for the most part, been ones to toe the line for the GOPe. If we work hard to send them reinforcements they will be even MORE of a force to contend with. And VERY good things are beginning to develop in the various US Senate races—Tea Party candidates are winning over RINOs & GOPe types. There is a good possibility that, if we continue to work hard, come 2013 the Republican majority in the Senate will be controlled by conservatives.
My point is that it is not the 2013 GOP controlled Congress that will need to RESIST Romney (although they will have to IGNORE any stupid, short-sighted legislative proposals he may send forth). It will be instead the Presidency that could resist this new conservative Republican controlled Congress. And guess what?—Romney will not be vetoing Republican legislation; a 2nd term lame-duck Obama would—in addition to doing much, much more to destroy the country.
Ok, let me get this correct. You write a post about how those of us who do not support Romney are picking on you because you do support that liberal. Then you spend part of the post telling us to be nice to you while you spend a paragraph attacking us.
Ok, here is the deal, you want to vote for that liberal Romney be my guest, I will not ever again support another liberal - R or D.
“Facts do not favor Romney as far as his record as a conservative goes. Does the GOP-E think we are dumb, deaf and blind? The truce does not mean freepers have to shut up and walk in lock step with Romney.”
For me, I have distilled it down to:
God would not vote for Romney, so I won’t, either.
