Team Romney: No, we’re not declaring ‘cease-fire’ on Obamacare
Washington Examiner ^

Posted on 07/03/2012 12:09:58 PM PDT by Perdogg

In the days since the Supreme Court decision upholding Obamacare, some Democrats and commentators in the press have suggested that Mitt Romney is declaring a “cease-fire” on the issue and will no longer make it a centerpiece of his campaign to defeat President Obama.

IF I knew the choice was voting for a liberal or a radical Marxist, I know what I would do.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) we only have a left leaning RINO squish to choose over the Marxist.

*What to do, what to do*

You can vote for a 1/2 per center if you wish, but it will accomplish nothing in the attempt to rid ourselves of the worst, most divisive, most destructive, most anti-American, most pro-Marxist, most pro-death, most hateful administration ever

It's really simple Norm. The Marxist or the squish. If you choose the Marxist, you allow everything we hate to win.

“WE”, Lake, hate 2 different things. “I” hate liberals and refuse to vote for them.b “YOU” are campaigning for one.

Note the difference.

You sir seem to have come to the position that leaving the Marxist in power would be fine as long as you keep some sort of purity in your beliefs.

Sorry, that's just plain ridiculous, perhaps fine for the FR 50, but quite honestly, allowing the Marxist to survive because you claim "purity" is as close to insanity as I have seen.

Let me repeat again, this is the worst, most divisive, most destructive, most anti-American, most pro-Marxist, most pro-death, most hateful administration ever. They will destroy America and everything you love and care for.

But be certain not to vote for Romney.....

So you willingly distorted and fabricated what a fellow Freeper actually said because you couldn’t refute his actual statements.

That, sir, is the behavior of a leftist.

Thank you for your concession.

There you go. “Circumstances.” Situational ethics, moral relativism. And it describes perfectly what’s going on here. Forget about your principles or your conscience. Forget about doing the right thing.

OK, so that's all you've got.

You accuse others of abandoning their principles and yet your entire argument consists of quibbling over the semantics of one word.

And still you have nothing to say about the irrationality and dishonesty that define the Mitt Hater junta dominating your website.

Fine and fine.

I'll just continue along with my understanding that reason, honesty, decency, and a devotion to making a positive contribution to the here and now are what define conservatism.

You will continue on with whatever it is that you believe.

Vote straight conservative up and down the ballot. Continue to be fully invested in precious metals. May I recommend gold, silver and lead. If you can't afford gold or silver, stay heavy in lead.

We are the sovereigns. We are the final arbiters in regards to all matters constitutional and in securing/re-securing the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.

On this Independence Day, it would behoove us all to re-read the Declaration of Independence to remind ourselves of what our founders established as our right and recourse in the event of any attempt to takeover our government by persons or groups hostile to liberty.

Excerpt:

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. —

Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world...

My ballot will ONLY say Obama or Romney.

When is the last time you voted in a presidential election?

There will be many on there.

Don't expect me to vote for someone that supports killing unborn children. I won't do it.

Let's see....should I let the worst, most divisive, most destructive, most anti-American, most pro-Marxist, most pro-death, most hateful administration ever survive, or should I vote for a RINO squish..

The better of two evils schtick again?

More big party threats? Vote for us or die? Again....

Bush the Republican brought us Obama...The line of Republican leftist becomes worse with each one installed or reelected into office.

Bush nearly single handily made American citizenship all but pointless, got us involved in "Compassionate wars" costing *trillions*, lasting many years...We won gas at double the price. Tens of millions entered this country illegally, during war time no less, the banks bailouts started with Bush...

Now, after all these years sliding into an abyss, ya want the American public to continue electing leftist frauds because they have an *R* by their name because they are the better evil? Bull shit.

They beat that schtick to death.

I'll vote Republican when they run a real conservative with a conservative history. Considering the past 20 years or so, you'd be an idiot to do otherwise, but you do what ya want...I honestly don't care anymore.

To be really blunt, I don't believe a single word Romney or Obama say about anything. I don't' even listening to them anymore...There is no point. It's all lies.

There you go. “Circumstances.” Situational ethics, moral relativism. And it describes perfectly what’s going on here. Forget about your principles or your conscience. Forget about doing the right thing. You can use situational ethics or moral relativism to justify just about anything (which is exactly what Romney does).

Jim, you are my HERO!

Maybe it was a lie, maybe pressure ‘evolved’ his thinking. But we can’t say for sure based on what we know of him now, can we. I hope he’s serious. I hope he sticks to this. But you or I can’t be sure. Can we.

You are correct. But we can be sure about Obama. He will keep Obamacare.

We all point to Reagan as a conservative hero. Yet many point to George HW Bush as a taxing RINO. Yet Reagan choose Bush as his VP and with a great 8 years, supported and almost assured HW the Presidency.

Does this put Reagan in your CINO group? It was Reagan who said to always support the Republican party candidate, is he just another ignorant voter?

You will never convince me Reagan would “sit this one out” or vote for Virgil Goode. He would fear for America's future under Obama. He would be telling us all to vote Romney, even if he didn't agree with him on everything.

Hate Bush all you want, say he was a disaster, so you'd rather have had Gore and Kerry or Gore for 8 years? WTH? That's conservative? Because those elections were close, your vote kept Gore and Kerry out. But you're willing to let Obama stay?

If we'd all stayed home in 2000 and had Gore as President on 9/11 I fear what would have happened.

If I recall events correctly Reagan took Bush to satisfy the ‘eastern establishment’ i.e. money. I don’t believe they were like peas in a pod. That Bush would later come out for ‘a new world order’ I don’t think Reagan was part of such an idea to remove the exceptional characteristic of the USA.

Hate Bush all you want

Has nothing to do with hate junior. Stop with the leftist talking points.

It has to do with his and the policies of others.

You want to continue voting for non-conservative liberal politicians, always voting for one or the other level of evil, it's your choice. But you'd better expect the results to be anything but conservative with larger, more intrusive and more controlling government. This is not complex.

Personally, Mr. Robinson, for me I do not feel I am abandoning my convictions by voting for Romney. I feel that under Romney I can at least “live to fight another day”, where under Obama I will be made to shut up and accept a new reality that after eight years will have a hold on every segment of society. Without Obama we will have no Kathleen Sibelius, Eric Holder, Janet Napalitano, Valerie Jarret, David Axelrod, etc that are really ruining what is left of America as Obama plays yet another round of Golf, vacations, or campaigns, only returning to Washington to rule by Executive Order every so often.
