I know Romney's not a hit with Freepers. Truth be told he was FAR from my first pick as well. BUT...
Created for OMG! for America. Join the grassroots there, or just join the fun at the Facebook page here
Big happenings comings...little minds stand in the way.
I like the new tagline!
I suspect you didn’t get my point.
All I have to do is the right thing, and place my faith in God.
Romney ain't God.
Outcome is not in my hands.
....and how many millions more would have been lost or enslaved down the road?
But I don’t worship at the altar of political expediency.
You seem confused.
And by the way, not a single ballot in the country will have a spot to vote against anyone. You either vote FOR someone, or you don’t vote. This is a simple, indisputable fact.
Subtle, with a twist. Completely over the head of intended target.
and your brilliant, Nobel prize-deserving other option is what again?
I used to be very very good at that kind of thing.
Problem is that now that I am getting old I usually just run out of patience and yell what amounts to “get off my lawn!”
Perhaps you should take a powder.
If the founders had held the line on slavery, millions would have been freed of the scourge of slavery. At least 600,000 wouldn't have died in bloody battle in harsh conditions.
I wouldn't be considering how to avoid slavery in 2012.
Ha! Now I’m jealous you didn’t call
Amen, Brother FReeper.
I'm not voting for the nightmare that you engineered with the GOP-e.
You can't shame me, you can't brow-beat me, you can't make me.
You guys need to get a clue about the consent of the governed in the governance thing.
And I'm certain that you will.
BTW You're right I don't make the rules. But, I can pretty well guess the outcome from experience.
I agree that the real fight this year is in the Congressional races. However, I'm not going to roll the dice and give Obama the opportunity to rule via executive fiat at will - which he has demonstrated that he is more than willing to do. If we allow Obama the opportunity to rule when he has nothing left to lose, there will be no nation left at the time of the next mid-terms to save.
I agree to disagree with your perspective. I can't afford to take a chance on another Obama term. My life and that of the 38 employees that rely upon me is at stake.
I don't accept honors from foreign potentates. I'm from Texas.
I am proud to FReep with an entrepreneur employer American patriot like you, however. Even if we disagree on the consequences of Romney.
There were NO other choices whatsoever? Really?
Even a frigging cook can see some other options.
I was not referring to the election outcome.
“Enjoy that warm tingly feeling down your leg after voting for barky.”
Now you’re being childish.
So if I don’t vote for 0bozo, is that a vote for Willard? Sheesh...go jump in a lake
lol, I’m not confused.
Here’s another example, just for kicks.
Several posters on this thread are claiming they won’t vote for Romney based on their principles....they cannot vote for someone they think is pro-choice, or somehing else. (I’m generalizing here). I call you guys the conscientious objectors in this battle. Fine. There will always be some. Buuuuuut, if we were all conscientious objectors we’d get creamed in each and every battle. Some of us have to get bloody and fight by actually voting...not “not voting”. It would help to have more of us than them (liberals) in this battle. We’ve got a long ways to go in this war, but first we have to win THIS battle.
The complaining one.
Because you can't call yourself conservative if you are willing to approve of slavery (you did, upthread, to get what you wanted), or killing babies in the womb.
Get used to it.
I rest my case.
You nailed it in every way my FRiend. We also have to include Steve Schmidt who was too inept and unqualified to run a presidential campaign. I have great contempt for Steve Schmidt. I am sure the failures of McCain’s campaign came from Schmidt’s direction.
That’s what they did. The southern states refused to sign the declaration when it included Britian’s importating their slave trade as on ef the colonies’ grievances. So out it went.
Care for a do-over?
I’m going to call myself tired trying to keep up with your logic.....changing my statements into something I never wrote....all while you throw in little insults. lol, you might not agree with me, but attributing me with things I never wrote doesn’t accomplish much.
I gotta hit the hay....later.
"The choice was stick to the principle of no slavery and never form a country or give up on that principle"
That's approval of slavery. You can give up on whatever principles you claim to hold. I won't.
Dumb analogy. You obviously don’t know the difference between conscientious objectors and fighters who refuse to be quislings.
Only need one side of the paper to figure that one out.
Purely pitiful, ain't it...? ;)
Demonstrate: How my not casting a vote for Mittens increases Obama's vote total from 1,000,000 to any other number.
God protect and keep this great nation from the unabashedly craven... and the profoundly innumerate.
I've been thinking of asking them to post pictures of the Romney bumper stickers on their cars and trucks. I mean, they're really, really behind him all the way, right?
Well said, thank you.
Yes, the Founding Fathers dedicated this country to God and His glory - but do our current leaders carry on that dedication? Do we, the citizens of America? Do our values, or laws, and our behavior reflect the true Christian spirit?
God is always there. Christ is always there. The Holy Spirit is always there. They are immutable, ever faithful. But we, the children of God, are not.
Countries come and go. Christian countries come and go. That’s why I say that God does not care about America, per se. He cares about all His children, all His creation.
God knows what is best for each of us individually, and as nations. But Man has Free Will. And too often, that Free Will is exercised in the wrong direction.
America will not be saved by divine intervention - unless that intervention comes in the form of our actions as individual private citizens, and collectively in the public arena.
So you think that NO abortion except for the health of the mother, which is what Reagan passed, is a pro-abortion law? I don’t.
But I do know that the way the libs in California interpreted the law Reagan signed made it seem that you could get an abortion for a hangnail. I also know that the rest of his life Ronald Reagan regretted giving them the opportunity to do that.
But Romney and his surrogates, trying to make him look better, have been saying Reagan was pro-abortion because Romney actually was pro-abortion. Romney said that govt. should not be able to interfere with a woman’s “right to abort her baby.” And he would do all he could to protect a woman’s “right to abort her baby.” Which translates into ‘all abortions should be legal if the mother wants to kill her baby.’ I have been unable to find the right to kill an innocent baby anywhere. It certainly is not one of the “rights” endowed by our creator.
Unlike Reagan’s law which still banned most abortions, Romney wanted to protect abortions and make it illegal for govt. to be able to stop them. Which made him an actual pro-abortion candidate. And unlike Reagan, Romney has never expressed deep regret for any of the laws and decisions he made which were far worse than the law Reagan deeply regretted passing.
Reagan never was pro-abortion he was always pro-life and became even more pro-life once he saw what the democrats did to the law he passed. Romney was never pro-life. He was pro-abortion from the start and has never shown any real regret over holding that position. Whether his pro-life epiphany, which came when he decided to run for the presidential nomination of a party which has not nominated a pro-choice person, is real or not, only Romney and God know for certain.
So please do everyone a favor and stop spreading Mitt’s lies.
Thank you! I did tweak it a little to make it fit my style a bit better but I’m not going to post it here because those same ABO who are calling you bad names would probably pee on themselves if they saw how I changed it.
Spare me the drama. I have no idea what the Romney Campaign is saying. I was just adding information to the Thread that was not there.
My point was simply that even those Politicians we have vigorously supported have made some bad policy decisions that still impact us today. Nobody is perfect, even Ronaldo Maximus.
The Primaries are over and there are two viable Candidates, one a Republican and one a Traitorous Commie Bastard. Given that choice it's the RINO for me. For you, there is no difference between the two. Whatever floats your boat.
My Vote either way will not make a difference since I live in California. My guy was Newt and he didn't make it. Now he is endorsing the Republican Candidate who happens to be Romney.
I'm not arguing the point. I'm sick of all the back and forth. Minds are made up and few will be swayed either way. We are down to Preaching to the Choir in a Church full of empty Pews.
I know that Reagan was not perfect, and I understand that pointing out his imperfection was your point. But I also know that liberals love to tear down people’s opinions of conservatives and memories of Reagan can be tainted by people spreading untruths about him after he is no longer here to defend himself.
You may not know this but in the 2008 election, Romney started this lie that Reagan was pro-choice, and pro-abortion, just as he was. It was never true, but here you are having heard it somewhere, continuing to spread this falsehood. You would think that four years later, the lie would have played itself out.
I mention it because it is a falsehood and I know exactly where the lie originated. Now you know too. So at least one new person knows and should not need to spread that lie again.
Who you choose to vote for is your business, but the truth is everyone’s business, especially when we have two major league prevaricators running for the office of president at the same time.
