Posted on 07/07/2012 3:19:37 PM PDT by pistolpackinpapa
LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Brad Pitt has long been an advocate for gay rights (initially vowing to hold off on marrying longtime love Angelina Jolie until gay marriage became legal nationwide), but his mother, Jane Pitt, apparently takes a different stance on the issue.
In a letter penned for her local newspaper, Jane urged Christian voters not to be put off by candidate Mitt Romneys Mormon faith, as he still maintains conservative views in line with Christian beliefs despite his differing religion including his posture on gay marriage and abortion.
I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon, she wrote in the opinion piece for The Springfield News-Leader this week.
Jane added that any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romneys opponent, Barack Hussein Obama a man who sat in Jeremiah Wrights church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.
While the letter may seem harsh to some, Brad has previously said his mother means no harm.
Shes very, very loving very open, genuine, and its hilarious because she always gets painted in the tabloids as a she-devil, he told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview back in January. Theres not an ounce of malice in her.
She wants everyone to be happy, the actor noted.
Voting straight conservative here, up and down the ticket and praying for a tea party sweep so we can begin impeaching and expelling the corrupt statist bastards!! Let the beheadings (politically speaking) commence!!
“BTW, I remain in serious prayer for a miracle in Tampa.”
From your mouth to God’s ear!
For the last time ... He is better than the Marxist . Now bug off troll.
“There are several local, state, congressional and senate candidates that I am supporting with as much energy and finances as possible.”
I am fortunate that I have the opportunity here to help eliminate a liberal democrat senator with a conservative republican, and to help keep a conservative republican congresswoman elected in 2010 in office. I am focusing my energies there as you suggest. Romney is just a distraction from where one’s focus should be. He is a disgrace to the conservative cause, and I will never support or vote for him.
He can kiss my ass too . But I wont sit in a corner and pretend I’m better than the rest of the country . America is my house and if is not good enough than tough . I’m voting for Romney .
I lived in Florida 12 years so I just might do it twice .
There are several local, state, congressional and senate candidates that I am supporting
That’s where it starts . In the mean time I’ll fire the Marxist . At the Federal level ? Do as you please .
“For the last time ... He is better than the Marxist . Now bug off troll.”
Jim...”Ben Bolt” is of course entitled to think “he shall not be named” is better than a marxist. A common ABO position.
However, I do not believe he should be able to get away with calling me a “troll.” I am many things, but a “troll” is NOT one of them. The post is personally insulting and way beyond mere disagreement. He is impling that I am working for the other side. I am the conservative I claim to be.
Well, we must each vote our conscience, but please do not do as some of the others have and attack those of us who defend our constitution and our founding principles as “Obama supporters,” etc. That is a false charge (a bald faced lie) and they know it.
FR was founded to fight against such goverment tyranny and corruption as we see in Obama and Romney and we’re not going to change to suit the GOP-e wannabe masters.
Those who can’t live with FR the way we’ve always been and intend to stay should bail out.
We ain’t changing.
Any why would it be that you don’t care, ‘cause she suggests that Romney is better than Obama? Oh brother......
What on Earth makes you believe that?
Because he has principles the rest of America is clueless about . Some kind of secret cloak or something . I see maybe 6 members of the Senate who dont shave there chest and he thinks there is an impeachment looming .
Maybe you can make some sense to this ... principled object . I’m fini .
ABO! ABO! ABO! ABO! There.
When it comes to Marxism vs statism there is no “better.” They’re two sides of the same coin and lead to the same result: Government control, loss of economic freedom. Tyranny. Totalitrarianism.
Look up Reagan on compulsory health insurance, statism, socialism, totalitarianism, etc, vs freedom.
How soon they forget.
Couple in Romney’s dismal liberal progressive record on abortionism, homosexualism, gun-control, liberal judges, advocating for TARP, bailouts, stimulus spending, etc, and there’s really very little difference between them and definitely no “better” there.
They are both tyrannical statists.
As far as I am concerned, the Elite Republicans, will full knowledge of how easy it be to defeat obama with a Conservative candidate, refused to do so, meaning nominate a Conservative candidate.Instead, knowing full well that Romney stood no chance of defeating obama regardless of how vurnable he would be, ordained him to be the standard bearer of the Republican Party. This tells me: 1. The Elite Republicans would rather lose the election than win with a Conservative. 2.They would prefer an obama win over a Conservative win.
In 2008 against my better judgement and saying that I wasn't voting for him after he picked Palin, on the last day of early voting I voted for him. And regretted it ever since. Later I made a vow to myself that I would never vote against anyone again. If the Republicans cannot nominate someone to vote for, so be it.
You should be zotted. You go too far.
Jim you’re voting a straight conservative ticket where ? You have the same 4 choices I have . Vote for Romney . No vote. Write in . Or for the Marxist .
Your an ex Democrat you’ve stated over and over . Where is the Conservative ticket this time around ? It aint there so you have the same 2 party system I have . There is no magic here . I’m voting for Romney .
“They are both tyrannical statists.”
Amen to that. I might add, that I find Romney to be even scarier than Obama in many ways. Mr. Obama is an open evil that most persons of even moderate conservative views can clearly see - that which is recognized is easier to oppose. However, Romney is truly a wolf in sheep’s clothing and his evil is not so clearly seen, even by persons that should. That really scares me.
I really can understand raw fear many have of 4 more years of Obama, and thus their choice to take a lesser (as they perceive it) evil in Romney. So, I don’t get upset with an ABO position per se. However, when they go so far as to suggest that anyone who doesn’t agree to their ABO strategy is “stupid”, “supporting Obama”, etc. then I get mad.
Couple in Romneys dismal liberal progressive record on abortionism, homosexualism, gun-control, liberal judges, advocating for TARP, bailouts, stimulus spending, etc, and theres really very little difference between them and definitely no better there.
Been at this 35 years Jim and I still have only 1 choice in this election . You forget the public is being bought with every election in your list there .
Great post, Ben Bolt.
Yup. And as long as the public continues voting in statists, we’re going to continue the downhill slide into socialism, tyranny, totalitarianism.
The GOP should know better.
FReepers should definitely know better. We are the resistance!!
oh ... Mr. Principled ? And your fall back position is for me to get fired ? You’re so sad . You go take a hike .
Yup. And those false accusations really piss me off, too. I try to ignore them, but sometimes I have to speak out.
Hell no, I’m not voting for the Marxist. Or the Marxist-lite. I’ll be voting for a genuine pro-life, pro-family, pro-small government, pro-defense, traditional conservative with a pro-life, pro-family, pro-small government, pro-defense traditional conservative RECORD with very few blemishes!!!! And that leaves the abortionist/homosexualist statist Myth Romney the hell OUT!!
The Democrat party left me and Ronnie behind and looks like the GOP is about to do the same.
“Where is the Conservative ticket this time around?”
That is the WHOLE point, but NOT the way you are spinning it.
We don’t have a “conservative” choice this time because Romney, backed by the GOPe, BOUGHT the election. Voting for Romney, who you admit is flawed, is just allowing the GOPe to continue to DOMINATE you and me. IF you want to be dictated to by “party elites” instead of getting a real conservative to “vote for” instead of merely “voting against” Obama. You are going to have to take a stand against the GOPe and tell them emphatically NO!
I have been able to vote since 1972, but didn’t vote in that election because I was undergoing initial military training at the time. I first voted in 1976 upon completing 4 years of Active military service. In that election, and every one until this time, I have ALWAYS voted for the GOP nominee. Even though some have been poor choices. However, Romney is just too much for me to stomach anymore. I cannot vote for him. To do so is to surrender FOREVER any chance of ever getting a conservative (not a “perfect” one) nominated again. I cannot nor will not try to pick between evil (Obama) and evil (Romney)...both are too flawed, both are BAD for the country.
The real CHOICE is to support neither. And let the GOPe know why! I am sick of my values not even remotely being represented by the GOP that I have backed for so many years. I am tired of being taken for granted. No more!
Jim Robinson speaks eloquently of “revolution”, and I think he is right. Of course, I have other considerations than Jim (i.e. I won’t support a devout Mormon for POTUS). It also scares me that so many on the “right” are giving a cultist a pass....only the left going after him on that (of course they are hypocrits - they really don’t care about religious things).
“Ben Bolt” you DO have another choice...it is stop being a dumb sheep that follows a bad shepard in the form of the GOPe. Either we conservatives get control of the GOP, or it is time, to start building something new....as hard as that might be. However, right now I’m fighting for control of the GOP.
Whatever, I will not critisize your ABO stance, I understand it, but I will fight you when you denigrate those of us that stand up to tyrants...especially the GOPe. Be part of the solution, not the problem.
“The Democrat party left me and Ronnie behind and looks like the GOP is about to do the same.”
I am convinced to could well be the case. President Reagan got that right. I think he would be upset with what is called the GOP today.
“Great post, Ben Bolt. ABO!!!!!!”
Please do us all a favor and go hide in your bomb shelter and don’t come back out. If you don’t have anything intelligent to add to the conservative, except taunts...you are just being annoying.
“And your fall back position is for me to get fired ? Youre so sad . You go take a hike.”
I would tell you to kiss by backside, but I don’t want to risk being infected with whatever you are diseased with - some disease induced dementia. I think the ABO syndrome is some form of Mad Cow Disease.
“Yup. And those false accusations really piss me off, too. I try to ignore them, but sometimes I have to speak out.”
Jim, you are certainly a nicer person than myself. I would have pulled to plug on these individuals some time ago. Not because they disagree, but the manner in which they do so.
I would certainly give them a “time out” as you have done to me in previous occassions. When “they cannot play well with the other children” then it is time for them to stand in the corner - muzzled. I know it has made me be more circumspect in how and what I write.
Ben Bolt will now be intollerable on the forum. He thinks he can insult with impunity now.
I understand your passionate convictions, Jim..
I want Obama out.
Well, if he does, he’s liable to be on the receiving end of a lightening bolt.
The GOP is a country club . Remember Florida in 2k ? Been knowing that since I got emails for being a trouble maker . If I had my way I’d start a 3rd party and suck the life out of the GOP and build on that .
Time out ? For what ... Because your a liar on this thread ? Because I fired you and you keep running your mouth like you walk on water ? Go take a pill and yes I am a lightning Bolt and stop begging for someone else to speak for you because you cant flip me .
Been at this 35 years you smug keyboard soldier.
I really do not care what you do, nor do I care what you may or may not think.
Any PM letter from you henceforth will be first copied and pasted to the general forum, from then I will reply, if I choose to. Thank you in advance for no further private communication.
“Time out ? For what ... Because your a liar on this thread ? Because I fired you and you keep running your mouth like you walk on water ? Go take a pill and yes I am a lightning Bolt and stop begging for someone else to speak for you because you cant flip me .

Like I said Jim...he thinks he can insult with impugnity. He really needs a “time out” until he can learn manners.
Ben Bolt - So what about 35 years. Time doens’t entitle you to anything. I am espousing the same views as the forum owner. I don’t care to “flip” you. I really don’t. However, I am sick of you denigrating those that disagree with you. You are crude, rude, and socially unacceptable. You really need to be silent for awhile. There are times I have needed a “silencing”....this is yours.
“The GOP is a country club . Remember Florida in 2k ? Been knowing that since I got emails for being a trouble maker . If I had my way Id start a 3rd party and suck the life out of the GOP and build on that.”
Hallelejah. You finally wrote something I can agree with.
Quite a spicy thread.
I think everyone should back away from the keyboard and go outside for a nice walk.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I will not vote for Romney. I don't care if he is the only one on the ballot, I won't vote for him.
Why? Quite simply, because he's a liar on every single issue important to Conservatives. And, no, I won't vote for Obama either.
So give a reason to stay home like you are and I will . It’s the real world out there boss . You can go as far away as you like . I’m not going anywhere and as to your smug smart mouth you just keep your so called principles and wrap that around you .
You dont know me and I could care less . Enjoy your bubble wrap and I’m sick of the reverse statist in my country ( That would be you superior ) types who think you can build from within and the rest of us have to be spoon fed by the likes of you . May as well be a damn Mormon thread writing to you . Go away .
Need a paddle?
No . Need a new President .
“You dont know me and I could care less.” “Im not going anywhere and as to your smug smart mouth you just keep your so called principles and wrap that around you.”
And you know nothing about me. What I am seeing about you is that you are an abusive individual that is being allowed to denigrate others wrongly without consequence. You really need to stop writing and posting your vitriol against persons of character and principle.
If you want to vote for Romney...then do so. Stop insulting those of us that refuse to do so. You just can’t seem to grasp a simple idea like that. Stop be obtuse, be quiet, and all will be fine.
Jim - He continues to insult and abuse without consequence. Is this what you really want for FR?
If you want to vote for Romney...then do so
Thank you for the blessing so for the 4th time bug off and as for insults you lied on this thread with your superior principles . Go heal yourself .
You have it right!
I'm voting for all the local good conservatives too! I hope to be able to help in the local campaigns!
God bless you, dearest Sola Veritas!!!
I’m right there with you and I am guilt free!
God bless and keep you and God will help us save our Republic.
I think they want a progressive win and don't care whether there's a "d" or an "r" behind the name. Furthermore, they've been willing to take it in incriments which is what got us into the hole we're in.
You’re gonna sue FR? Well, bye.
That can happen when your guy is going to come in second, with certainty, so you want to minimize the aggregate impact ~ that third-party candidate can be very useful in showing that neither of the front runners were metaphysically wonderful.
Then, maybe you want to give voice to the problems that ensue when the ruling elite cut out the guys on the bottom entirely.
Politics is a hard business. Be glad you can vote. Make sure your vote counts for something.
I am sorry.
