Any Vote That Isn't For Romney Is Effectively A Vote For Obama (pic)

I know Romney's not a hit with Freepers. Truth be told he was FAR from my first pick as well. BUT...

Free Republic won't survive another 4 years of Obama.

I heard that crap when Clinton was in office. We're still here.

Hysteria can be treated.

Romney is a detestable RINO...but more than that he is a self centered capitalist. I can live with that for now. You cannot change the letters around in the word capitalist to spell marxist, or communist or radical, Soros puppet hell bent on destroying the American dream...No FReeper, I don't care about his or her sign on date, can convince me that Romney is out to destroy this country the way Choombama/Bill Ayers/Bernadette Dorne/Tony Rezko/Rev. Wright, et.al. is.

Do not vote, or pencil in your uncle Bob, go ahead....you are either a traitor in my eyes or willing to trade a country for your very own ethics...both ways you vote for the current Liar in Chief. A single vote, alive or dead, may keep this POS in command long enough to hand us over to the Caliphate.

Do you really think a space God loving Mormon is going to give this country over to ragheads the way oBizmal is??? GTFO, please!

The target here must be to get the purple lipped prince off the " free reign Executive Order/Czars/Mooselle gets to travel around the globe and I golf daily and bow to mooslims" boondoggles.

This little "I have my principles so I won't vote at all" mentality was cute when I was young and began my professional career but we are talking about a country and not your Home Owner's Association.

I should delete this before hitting post...I normally do...typing this kind of response then deciding to delete normally appeases me, but you know what? WTF? Enough...We have come to a fork in the road and our brakes are out...to the left I see a sign that say "Bridge Out 100 feet". To the right I see a sign that says "Bridge out 2 miles". In 2 miles I can figure out a way to stop the car. It is what it is...

WHY is that?

Does it hurt your wittle "sensibilities" or does it hit home and you know it to be the truth, oh Paul-Bot?

Shutting down those who we disagree with (or censoring them) is what the LEFT does, not Conservatives who can debate the issues based on facts.

What's your excuse????

The reason that McInsane lost was the economic collapse. With Palin on the team, we were on a roll until the collapse September 14th, 2008 of Lehman Brothers. The DemonRATs put all the blame on the Republicans and the American people, low on the economic IQ scale, believed it. We sat back and let the DemonRATs set the propaganda story get sold to the voting public. And the Republican Party was caught with no counter effort to set the story right. The collapse was the result of Barney Frank and Chuck Schumer not heading warnings about the Mortgage Market bubble about to burst.

We are our worst enemy about not getting the truth about the economic collapse out.

No sale.

Foaming at the mouth isn't going to convince me to vote for a pro-abortion, anti-gun, socialized medicine, big-government liberal.

That's the problem. You can get angry, but you can't make me do what you want.

I don't intend to stand before a Throne and explain how I voted for someone that supported killing children in the womb.

I've got enough stuff to explain.

This election is like the passengers on the sinking Titanic electing a captain. Who cares which socialist goes down with the ship?

America is dead and gone. The final nail in the coffin was the 2008 election of an African communist as President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. I hate to break this to you, Spoon, but there’s no point hanging onto the past.

America had a great run. Remember it fondly for what it was.

The United States of America is now little more than a big land mass populated by cretins and parasites who have absolutely no respect for the military and who vote for big government to confiscate money from their neighbors and “redistribute” it to them in exchange for their votes. It is not an America worth defending anymore. That America no longer exists.

The parasites outnumber the hosts now, and there’s no going back. The Democrats have won. Throw some cold water in your face and figure out how to grab every government dime you possibly can before the parasites gobble it all up. Look for angles, look for refuges, game the system... Every man for himself. Good luck, everybody.

FRegards,
LH

Washington Post, Oct 31, 2011:

But conservatives — unsurprised by human frailty — know that great republics are constructed out of flawed materials. Some of Romney’s transformation is explainable as the result of ideological regionalism. It would be a rare candidate who could run and win in Massachusetts with the same message offered to Republican caucus-goers in Iowa. The ideological gap between Beacon Hill and Osceola is among the widest in American politics, and making the stretch is difficult to accomplish in a dignified fashion. But the problem is not unique to Romney. Rick Perry won in Texas with an approach to immigration that is hard to translate in South Carolina. Ronald Reagan, as California’s governor, approved the liberalization of abortion and divorce laws. For a governor seeking the presidency, such tensions often arise.

Bridge Out 100 feet". To the right I see a sign that says "Bridge out 2 miles". In 2 miles I can figure out a way to stop the car. It is what it is...

Only problem is that we passing the warning signs and still haven't figured it out....so here goes BRAKE CHECK. Both parties are addicted to spending and entitlement programs and spend their days chasing the dragon like some burned out heroin addict. Stop being an enabler; you're neither helping them or you.

Quit putting liberals (from either party) in the driver seat and find someone that isn't hell bent on driving off the cliff. The GOP can't seem to figure that one out.

They just want to keep making a larger tent, but in order to do it they've kicked out the base. They can go the way of the Whigs.

“I, __________________, declare that I have decided that conservatism has failed and as such, I will vote for the Republican Mitt Romney, A man whose history I am aware of regarding his liberalism. It is with open eyes and no regrets that I will disavow everything I believe conservative ideals and the American Constitution ever stood for just to get Obama out of office.

Further, by doing so, I accept that I adopted the very things I formerly despised to get a liberal elected President and henceforth I have no legitimate right to ever be trustworthy again - since my newly adopted situational ethics allow me to bend like a twig in the prevailing political winds.

Hey you. A non vote for Romney is a non vote for Romney - that’s it.
You however have fallen for the “we are all going to die unless Romney wins”.....I suffer no such affliction.
But never fear, I live in California, so I am voting for a conservative.
However, if I lived a a red state, I would still chose the conservative on the ballot - you see I do not exchange my core for fear.
I do not vote for people who support abortion, homosexual agendas, illegals, big government, government mandates, liberal judges, gun grabs.........apparently you have no problem with that.

When an incumbent is on the ballot, the election is about the incumbent. If you do not vote for Romney, you are voting for Obama.

I dispute your rule, but let's accept it for the moment. Was it true, then, that in 2008 refusing to vote for McCain was *not* a vote for Obama, since he was not an incumbent?

I agree the collapse had a lot to do with it. However, once McCain't was the frontrunner and the nominee, he ran a spit warm campaign altogether. He failed to go after 0's connections to terrorists. he failed to go after the eligibility issue. He failed to effectively demonstrate 0 was inexperienced enough for the job.

His bogus suspense of the campaign until the 'crisis was resolved' was absolutely f'n stupid and was a major catalyst that allowed the dems to package the collapse as the fault of republicans.

He shut down his running mate so he wouldn't have to worry about being shown up.....I called that not long after the VP announcement and well before Palin ever wrote her book.

A good deal of romney's staff went to work for McCain't and when things didn't look like it was going there way, they looked for a scapegoat and blamed everyone but the leftists that put the economic policies in place. The side bennie was romney didn't have to worry about running against Palin in 2016.

Instead of picking viable candidates, the GOP looks to see whose turn it is too be the nominee. Well, it's my turn to tell the GOP to FO.

Obama insulted every American with his commentary about starting a business ~ Romney said only that it insulted businessmen.

Neither one of these pukes give a tinkers dam about America or American people.

Never expect an intelligent answer from anyone stupid enough to openly support a liberal for elected office.

A vote for Romney is an admission on the part of the voter that conservatism has failed and thus they are backing the strong (liberal) horse. Just so they can claim victory. It does not occur to them that the ‘America’ “saved” and in turn created by their Romney vote is not America in any accepted sense of the term. It is a liberal playland where abortion is free, gays have more rights than you do and Christianity takes a back seat to third world and cult ‘religions’.

That’s the ‘logic’ you are dealing with.
