Go get ‘em SVCW!
Well...”obviously” you missed the ‘nuance’ of his complicated thesis. So did I.
I’ll just stand by my statement, backed up by his diversionary rambling that he did in fact lie, that liars cannot be trusted by conservatives or anyone else valuing principle over situational ethics, and that he abandoned any conservatism he once had to back a full blown liberal.
Pretty sure his very statements that I and he posted show I’m not the liar here. ;)
Norm you are correct. There is a liar, deceiver, confiscator of the truth, dancer around issues........ and it’s not us.
How many times have you vote in your life? Can you account for every vote your candidate has cast?
Your looking for absolutes. I'd love to vote for the perfect person. Hell, I thought I had a couple of times, turns out once they get to Washington, they turn into something different.
Right now, there's two people running for president. Obama and Romney. I don't like that but that's what it is, that's the the almighty GOP gave us... What else are we to do?
I want Obama out and Romney is not the savior. It will take a long time to undo what Obama has done and it won't happen with one person. It will only happen if the people start to change. We can't expect to have to perfect candidate when the culture is so corrupt. Fix the culture and you'll have a better candidate. You can't do it the other way around.
The reason Goldwater lost is simple ~ he gave away the 30% of the black vote previous Republicans had received AND he gave away the Social Conservative vote ~ maybe not as big back then as now, but the idiot gave it away.
Nixon is almost a special case since he later on won two times, but in his first race he was the GOP-e (liberal lite) candidate against the more Conservative Democrat JFK.
Nixon never ran that way again.
Pappy Bush won when the Reagan Conservative base still thought of him as their kind of Conservative. When they found out he was a GOP-e backstabber they dumped him like yesterday's garbage.
Dole and McCain failed to come to grips with the demographic realities of today's Republican party and gave too much head to the GOP-e. In fact, McCain hired on all of Romney's backstabbers and that pretty much nullified any social Conservative leverage he'd gained with Sarah Palin on the ticket.
Here's how bad it is for your boy Romney. His life's experience, his political and social beliefs, and even his voting record, who he associates with, his likes and dislikes parallel those of Wendell Willkie. Roosevelt was a sick man and his campaign ran through Willkie like (p..p) through a goose!
A NOTE: I've noticed almost none of the Mittbots are unwilling to discuss Willkie.
All he can really do is say I am not obama and obama sucks.
I believe that is the plan, and it might be sufficient. This year should have been a redux of 1980. But instead it will be a reset to 2007. At best.
There is one thing that Romney can do to solidify his conservative support, and that is to admit that Romneycare has been unmitigated financial disaster for Massachusetts, and explain just exactly how he will euthanize Obamacare.
That’s all —
I’ve been thinking about that quite a bit. What would it take to be able to vote for this singularly repugnant man? First, to admit (or state) that abortion is wrong, despite what ‘mom’ thought. Second, admit that mandated government health control is always and everywhere coercive and counterproductive.
There are still many, many things which are odious about him and his record, but this would be enough to bring me over. Anyway he won’t do it. I don’t think he has ever admitted error.
Whenever you offer your lengthy explanation for your commitment to vote for Romney this November, I supplement your explanation in my own mind with the reminder that, since you live in California, your choice of candidate will have no impact on the outcome of the election no matter what you do. Since you don’t really have a vote that might matter, it may be easier for you to avoid confronting any conflict that might arise from voting for a liberal like Romney.
In other words, what difference does it make if you vote for a liberal? If it doesn’t make any difference to you, then it won’t make any difference to anyone.
I do not want Obamacare to continue to be the law of the land.
That is why I will vote for the one Presidential candidate with a chance of winning who has said he will repeal Obamacare: Mitt Romney.
I have voted Republican all my life. As I have gotten older I have become far more discerning in who and what I vote for. In the last presidential election I voted McCain/Palin, solely for Palin. And that was the LAST time I will ever split the baby.
As whacked as he is, McCain has some identifiable conservative votes on his record. Romney has none I am aware of. Certainly none on any issue of serious import.
As I posted above, I’ll vote for someone who shares my values. No one but me will ever share them 100%. But in serious issues, I will not compromise. I have learned that by compromise, we only lose the battle 50% at a time instead of 100% at a time.
Let’s get it over with and start rebuilding what remains into the country the founding fathers gave us. Or better yet, all the ABOs in America can join me and we’ll win.
I find it interesting that a supposed conservative will compromise their principles to support the ultimate liberal republican but not ‘compromise’ them to vote for an actial conservative.
Some things are not worth ‘winning’.
There is no rebuttal. This is the fear vote on steroids.
These have been with us always. Some wanted to cling to Britain at the Revolution, some wanted to duck out on Britain against Hitler, preferring no resistance if any cost would be attached, as there always is to anything meaningful.
Rita, as I said recently, these people want to be able to say and do whatever they want and do it with a clear conscience. They are screaming for justification for their clearly non-conservative actions.
In short, they want to be able to support a man who supports dead babies, homosexuals, the lib agenda etc, and do so with a clear conscience. Because their vote for a man who supports all those things SAYS THEY DO to anyone who believes that truth isn’t some mutable entity.
No matter how they justify themselves, the truth always outs.
Because like a child having a tantrum on the floor of the checkout isle, Rogue Yam wants attention. That and he ‘may’ well be a paid shill for Romney. But we can be 100% sure about the tantrum part.
There are many FReepers who continue to embrace reason and truth-seeking.
I hear directly from them every day.
I’m sure you do...
Over on True Blue Liberty you mean?
BTW, I just got a FReepmail invite to go there ;)
BTW, we all await your answer to my question. Still.
Yam, your vote for Romney means NOTHING, NADA, ZIP because you live in California.
Just as my non vote for Romney means NOTHING, NADA, ZIP because I live in California.
So why are do you keep on pressing other conservatives to suspend all conservative principles and vote for the R called Romney the liberal.
I moved out of a socialist country with my family to get away from “national health care”. I swore that my kids would have a better life and never have to go through what I went through when I had surgery at a London hospital.
I would have never thought that in less than 13 years America would go down the path of socialized medicine.
Where do I go now?....... I’m so damn angry.
