“...but you are without hope that you can change things in the next two years.”

I’d rather have another shot at a conservative in 2016.

Read this post on a constitution party forum. The guy makes a good point
The Prohibition Party "spoiled" the Republicans in the presidential elections of 1884 and 1916. After it happened the second time, in 1916, the Republicans decided they were sick of losing presidential elections because of the Prohibition Party, and in 1917 they passed the prohibition amendment to the US Constitution. That amendment had been sitting in Congress in every session since 1875, and had never before made any headway. So sometimes "spoiling" is an effective technique for a minor party and its adherents to exert some power.

Romney’s no prize, I never supported him, but the silliness in equating the two (Bambi=Romney) is beyond mind boggling.

Obama doesn't have to lie as much.

I am out to FIX this party... or start a new one

I don't know whether the Republic will survive four years of Mittens.

I know for a fact the Republic will *not* survive four more years of Obama, in which case it truly won't matter how you plan to vote in 2016.

"True conservatives know that Obama has to go, and Romney is the path."

Save your Rah Rah crap for the other sheep. The only reason True Conservatives will vote for Romney is because there is no one else. Once again the GOPe shoved a RINO up our ass. Romney may help business in the short term, but if you think he is going to champion the US Constitution and social conservatism, and scale back the FedGov gone wild you are smoking crack.

Choosing Romney or Obama is like deciding whether to take a slow moving freight or high speed passenger train. Same destination...different arrival times.

I am with you on that, and very hopeful that will be the case. That is why a new third party is so important. The GOP, by then, will be a shell of itself. The takeaway from the last 20 years is that the GOP will not go conservative, even if its lifeblood depended on it.

There is a candidate named Virgil Goode who stands on constitutional, God-honoring principals. I’ll stand with him and you can shove your RUDE opinions where the sun don’t shine!

Well, good luck with that! While you're at it, perhaps you should give serious consideration to changing your FR screen name. The current one belies your position.

Obama for all of them.

A proved case of worst and most destructive president ever. Romney's not even close.

And Bambi (and the entire far left) thanks you (and laughs at you) for your support.......

Look I don't like Mitt, but you're just plain wrong.

It's like saying cutting someone's head off is the same as cutting off a toe, that's how different they are.

Frankly I'd rather not lose either, but if you give e a choice....bye toe.

Free will is important. Your personal decisions are important.

If your free will leads you to make a personal decision in favor of improving your relationship with your Creator, then wonderful things will happen.

If your free will leads you to make a personal decision to defy God, to attempt to thwart His will, and to support evil, then you will find yourself in a soup of fear and pain. Fear and pain can in turn cause you to commit other evils.

Thus, without God, crippling fears about the future might lead you to commit evil by supporting one evil that you deem to be less evil than another evil. You might, for example, vote for Romney in an effort to prevent the reelection of Obama. You might fancy yourself some sort of connoisseur of evil, capable
of distinguishing between fine gradations of evil and thereby blind yourself to the reality that either choice remains evil.

Reject Obama.

Reject Romney.

Reject all evil.

Trust God.

The convulsions come after voting for the turd, like with any serious vomiting. It’s horribly painful. But the onanists only care about their own little feelings, so yippee for them - so very, very principled. I’m sure they are very impressed with their results.

In Minnesota we had a handful of fools that said “I am voting for the blah blah party to send a message”. 350 votes later MN ended up with AL FRANKEN as the Senator.

Use the brain God gave you and always vote for the guy that represents the least threat that has the best chance of winning.

I am not wrong about Romney.
It’s like a choice between a flat head screw driver and Philips head - we are screwed either way.
Sorry I am tired of being screwed.

You are welcome, and I’ll always try to be. Like I said, if someone’s conscience truly wont permit them to vote for someone, then I do get that. In the end, you are the one that has to lay your head on your pillow at night, and its your vote and your right to do with what you want.

I’d just ask you to consider the consequences if we wake up on Nov. 7 to find that Barack Obama has been re-elected. If that happens, those who enthusiastically voted for Romney, or voted holding our noses, or cast a protest vote or didn’t vote at all will still be in the same boat, complete with bullseye. You will get no argument from me that Romney’s track record has been far too liberal to call him a conservative, and at times its been too liberal to call him a moderate. On some issues he says he’s changed. I dont know if he’s lying or not. It may be etch a sketch city and he takes the oath of office by putting his hand on Teddy Kennedy’s mixed drink recipe book. But this I do know: Obama is unapologetic, and does not think he has yet gone far enough. At least with Romney there is a chance he may mean what he says, or at least is a good enough politician to know he can’t completely jettison the conservatives in his first term if he wants a second. Obama has no such reservations, and its a better bet that the horse that won the first two jewels of the triple crown would back out of the Belmont than the chances that Obama will change.

OK, bad example (got to have SOME humor with this stuff).

Amen! There’s more than one way of winning politically than, just, voting for the candidates that you believe come closest to your political beliefs. Other politicians and other political parties, truly, adapting the same solutions that are brought up by individual conservative candidates is a victory, too! Put “9-9-9” into the national platform of the GOP for ‘12 and beyond, as one example. I, truly, don’t see Mitt Romney, ever, becoming an actual conservative POTUS. Mitt is in the race for POTUS for himself and to attempt to make up for his dad not, ever, becoming POTUS. Mitt will, probably, stay a RINO for life, no matter how hard people will try to make Mitt become a true conservative, but I, and most other conservatives, many Libertarians, and some moderates, do hope that we are, really, very wrong about this prediction. There’s something very, very wrong, whenever the final GOP choice for POTUS turns out to be a RINO, over and over and over again.

Oh, wrong you are, big time. It's a matter of huge degree. Heck, you could charge Reagan's governance in California with the same things the way you seem to count.

It's the degree of being screwed that's different, like copping a feel rather than being raped (neither of which is particularly good), and frankly it's more tiresome listening to people whine incoherently, flailing around like they can't do anything, cause it's all the same, boo f'n hoo.

Breitbart was right about your type, you just want to piss and moan.

No argument from me that Romney *might* screw us. But have you been paying attention to what Obama has been doing with our defense/foreign policy? He wants to *kill* us!

Obama wants to cut our defense while China and Russia are massively increasing theirs. He plans to unilaterally cut our nuclear arsenal by up to 75%. He’s alienating our allies and empowering our enemies. He’s brought to power the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya and Egypt, and very soon in Syria too.

Wake up!!! I’d rather be screwed and live to fight another day, than have my throat cut by a traitor.

Degree? Explain to me who one can do a partial abortion with out a baby dying?
Reagan did not support the homosexual agenda in California, he did not provide free and low cost a abortions.
It does not matter you are voting for that liberal called Romney and I am not.

I agree the left does call voting rights stupid.

Those rights are not in any fashion stupid or ignorant, I am disheartened you feel they are.
