Please tell me what was incorrect... I’d like to know. I understand I was being very simplistic in my last comment, but it seemed to me that you’d rather sit on your hands and not vote (or vote “NUTS”) because your preferred candidate is not on the ballot.
And that is absolutely your right—I’m not arguing with that at all! I just want to understand your position.
I think we’re going to have to agree to disagree on this one. I’d rather avoid the crash if at all possible—hoping the pendulum doesn’t quite scrape the bottom as it swings back in the other direction; and then we can slowly gain the conservative momentum we currently lack.
It seems to me that you’d rather have the crash, get it over with, and then start building again (if re-building is possible by then) with what you perceive to be a far more perfect conservative candidate. (I hope I haven’t mis-characterized your position here.)
Yours is an understandable position, and it may be that it is, in fact, what will happen despite everything. However, I fervently hope that we can avoid the crash which you seem to welcome.
Regardless, the good times aren’t going to be rolling anytime soon, I fear.
Oh, and we already have a President who not only condones infanticide, he actually voted in his State Senate days to allow it to continue. Based on that alone, do you really want him to remain in office?
All other things being equal, your argument is valid, of course. And if Obama's voting record on abortion were any good, it might be something to consider. However, all other things are so far out of whack that, sadly, this is only one of many arguments to take into account.
Please tell me you're not comparing Romney to Hitler.
And whoever made the Churchill allusion upthread was absolutely right. Obama vs. Romney may not be Hitler vs. Stalin, but the comparison is apt in many ways.
At this point, I don't care how bad Romney is, he is better that Obama. I'll fight the "Let's get the RINO out of the White House" battle in 2016, and do it thankful that we have a country left to fight for.
You're right, we are only just starting to fight. But what might have happened if Washington gave up after the battle of Long Island? "I don't like the way those British fight, so I'm just going to sit out the next battle..." Yeah, that's the way to win.
My point is this: If we allow Obama to remain in power for another four years, God only knows what condition this country will be like, and the likelihood of our taking back the White House may diminsh with every year Obama is in office.
Friends, this is a war for the very soul of America, and I for one, will fight each battle using every tool in our arsenal to get us back on the right path. And if the only tool available to me is less than perfect, I will use what I can of it until I find a better tool.
Don't get me wrong! If Santorum ends up being the nominee (or Gingrich, or whomever), I will fight just as strongly for them.
Please don't quit the battle just because you don't like the particular weapon we happen to be carrying just now.
