Skip to comments.Ryan is a good man, but does not redeem the abortionist/homosexualist statist Romney

Except for his unfortunate go along to get along support of TARP, bailouts, stimulus spending and the increased credit limit, etc, Ryan is a pretty good choice. Probably the best choice of the RINOS that were on Romney's short list. I support Ryan for the vice presidency. Wish he were at the top of the ticket, though.
But I still cannot and will not support the grand father of ObamaCare. Romney still loves and brags about his bastard brainchild, RomneyCare, even today when he knows what an anti-liberty socialist POS it is.
And the fact that he advocated that abortion should be safe and legal in America for over three decades of his adult lifetime and even advocated that Roe v Wade should be supported and sustained as settled law precludes any consideration whatsoever by this pro-life Christian for Myth Romney for the presidency.
And the fact that he boasted that he would be better for "gay rights" than Ted Kennedy, and proved it just increases my resistance.
That, and his penchant for gun control, his continuing support for global warming, gays in the scouts, gays in the military, and his record of appointing liberal judges makes it all but impossible for me to support him.
Lastly, we're having a bit of changeover on our moderator staff. At least two moderators resigned this afternoon after I flatly refused to rein in a so-called anti-Mormon "bigot" on FR. Well, if being in opposition to false prophets and false prophecy makes a Christian believer a bigot, then I guess I'm a bigot. I've posted before that I flat do not believe that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. Nor do I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. The Christian bible warns us to be weary of false prophets and that I am. Romney being the presumptive Republican nominee does not change that fact.
Great post. Thank you. Poor Ryan, I believe, will try as he is a good man, but the deed is done so long as Romney is anywhere near a Republican ticket. Hope he leaves the office in four, if not the ticket, for poor Ryan. Given what and who he has to work with, poor Ryan has at least made more sober suggestions to address spending, but got laughed out off the stage for all his extensive effort.
And, I understand YOUR point!! The only problem is that I am weary of having to choose from the lesser of the two evils.
Why is it that what was once the most powerful nation on earth is capable of only having a choice between swampwater and raw sewage for its leader?? After 230+ years as a sovereign nation, we can't do ANY better than either Obama/Biden or Romney/Ryan!??
This is a sad commentary on the road to oblivion that we have travelled as a nation. Rather than a choice betwen the lesser of two evils, wouldn't it be refreshing and worth all the gnashing of teeth or water fountain discussions if our choice were between two extremely qualified, highly motivated (and motivating!) candidates?? Instead, we have a choice betwen the dregs remaining on the bottom of the barrel.
Please see my post #522. It was meant for you as well as SE Mom, and I thought I’d included you in the “To:” section. I hadn’t. I apologize for the error.
That because satan's pawn was involved. I will never vote for EVIL for America or taint myself because I put my stamp of approval on all his wicked deeds. NEVER!
I will choose Mitt because I dont want our country to go down the same road a Greece.
Greece is not a nation under God! So you obviously do want to go down the SAME road as them!
"And Jesus said unto them, Why are you fearful, O you of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm". Matt 8:26
Well, it just sucks to be us. It will suck even more if Obama wins a second term.
Do you people only read what you want to read or do you not have the ability to comprehend?
I said Romney was not my first choice. I realize the problems involved with him. I get it!
I simply said that for ME......for MY REASONING.....for where I AM at this point in time, I cannot separate the lessons from my family from my decisions. I thought this was a “FREE REPUBLIC”.....not just a place where you could only speak your mind when other people agreed!
The Mormonism thing was just an internal squabble.
Here’s my objection to Romney:
Both sides work for the same people. That’s why our choices are so lousy. The real money picks the actors up for the role.
The premise needs to be examined if casting a vote as provided for in the US constitutional system of political elections in fact amounts to a “stamp of approval” on whatever wicked thing the votee has, or even is foreseeably likely, to do.
You might cast a vote for a candidate because you love the candidate, but there may be other reasons.
Baptists think Catholics are wrong; Catholics think Jews are wrong; Jews think Christians are wrong and Christians think Mormons are wrong. I suggest perhaps we let God sort it out and not engage in Internet flame wars over our religious beliefs or trash each other’s religions for sport. Mormons seem to me to be hard- working and patriotic Americans.
And Romney, for all his perceived faults, is indubitably patriotic. Which is more than can be said for the current occupant of 1600, who seems to hate this country with every fiber of his being.
I will vote for a flawed patriot over a Marxist narcissist any day.
He can use a Mormon
Yes, God let Obama rule over us. Now who can tell the difference in a donkey and a certain liberal Morman?
I don’t know what your problem is but it is probably hard to pronounce
"Regards" (and snuggles if you like. That's street talk for: you smell like elderberries)
You are a little late. You have had since 2008 and before to rally the church to stop Romney. Christendom has failed. So, now it is time to preserve to Republic, unless you WANT Obama to be elected and watch the blood flow in the streets. Do you have kids? Preserve the Republic and then fix the church...then you wont have Romney candidates in the future.
Don’t know , we know what type Obama would pick.Got to take the Senate.
