Why Iím Voting for Mitt Romney and Why You Should Too
godfatherpolitics.com ^ | 7/27/2012 | Gary DeMar

The first reason is easy: Barack Obama. It is shocking to think that a Marxist could ever be president of the United States. But it happened. People always ask, “How could those people have sat back while ________________ came to power. That could never happen here.” Well, it did happen here. As a nation, we sat back and let Barack Obama win in 2008, and look at what we got. Granted, John McCain was not much of an alternative.

Some people might argue that the reason I don’t like Barack Obama is because he’s black. There’s no truth it. There are a number of black people I would love to see sitting in the White House, not because the’yre black, but because their worldview is right.

In fact, it’s the white half of Obama that I don’t like. How could his mother, who is white, associate with so many self-avowed Marxists? Didn’t she know how socialist, Marxist, and fascist policies have destroyed nations? Didn’t she realize that it was socialism and Marxism that has kept much of Africa in poverty? Let’s not forget Cuba, North Korea, East Germany and East Berlin, and the former Soviet Union. The facts are there for anyone to see.

Surely she had some idea of how the supposed Great Society programs that became law under Lyndon Johnson have wrecked the black family, turned the poor into a dependent voting-block that is beholden to a single political party with the result that the Democrat Party takes blacks for granted and the Republican Party ignores blacks because it has almost no chance of getting their vote.

Blacks have been duped by blacks. You don’t have to be in chains to be a slave, and there are more blacks in slavery today than there were in the 1850s.

If Romney wins, there will be a coattail effect, but not if disgruntled conservatives and Paulians stay home. This means that we can beef-up the conservative votes in the House and Senate. If we don’t get behind Romney, it’s almost assured that we will lose congressional seats.

Some will say that Romney’s just like Obama. That’s nonsense. Is Romney as conservative as I would like to see in a candidate? No. But he’s more conservative now than when he was governor of Massachusetts. The primary forced him to the right. Will he remain as conservative as his recent rhetoric seems to indicate? I don’t know. That’s why we need a strong Congress to put a brake on any broken-promise policies.

There are lots of people who believe Ron Paul’s going to get the nomination at the convention. It’s not going to happen. If it were to happen, he would lose bigger in November than Barry Goldwater lost to Johnson in 1964. Paul gave it a good shot. Did he get revolution started? That remains to be seen. But he didn’t win. Get over it for this election.

Romney’s been going on the attack. His comments on Obama’s “You didn’t build that” speech was fiery and passionate. This conversation with Brian Williams encouraged me that Romney’s not afraid to take on the media and doesn’t need a teleprompter. An exchange that Romney had with Brian Williams of NBC News was priceless. Williams, apparently reading from a script, asked Romney if it was true that he’s looking for an “incredibly boring white guy” to be his vice-president. Here was Romney’s reply: “You told me you were not available.” All Williams could say was, “Touche.”

These two encounters might not mean much, but they can be tipping points in an election. They give confidence to Romney, and they put the media on notice that they’re dealing with someone who’s not afraid to fight back without being nasty. Let’s be clear: The media are a fifth column. They’re going to do everything they can to get Obama re-elected. They can’t admit that they made a huge mistake in 2008.

The majority of Americans aren’t as conservative as most readers of this website. We’re still dealing with an electorate that’s on the government dole. They need Obama to win. There’s not much that’s going to change that except a national collapse. There are a lot of people who think that would be a great idea. It would be horrific. No one will come to our aid.

I don’t believe in messianic politics. I don’t believe any candidate is going to save us. Many of the problems our nation faces were created by us. We’re government drunkards. Too many of us like government programs that benefit us while we rail against programs that don’t. If you send your children to government (public) schools, you’re on the dole. You might not like hearing that, but it’s true. You’re not paying what it really costs. You’re using some of your neighbor’s money.

If we play this election right, Romney will give us a chance to right the ship of State. Liberals aren’t afraid of making small gains. We didn’t lose this nation in one election; we’re not going to get it back in one election.

“I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”
- Mitt Romney, 1994, former Boy Scouts of America National Executive Board member”

Yes, that’s a bad quote. And I don’t agree with much of what Romney supports, but I don’t agree with 99.9% of the things that Obama supports. I can give you quotes to make your blood curl from Obama. So, let’s get the guy out of office and deal with Romney from the Senate and Congress.

Romney is pro-life now. He has seen the light.

You'd be very popular on a parole board. ;-)

Uh huh, and how about the leader you’re about to vote for:

Mitt Romney, 1994, former Boy Scouts of America National Executive Board member, ready to sell boys down the river.

So, they change their logic: “You know, all these posters on FR who are going to vote for Romney are actually Democrats or Rhinos. Let’s rip them to shreds.”

Please explain how this position is any different from the ABOs "If you don't vote for Romney you're really an Obama supporter".

Thanks.

By not voting for him /johnny ... you did vote for all those things. Many of us don’t like Romney ... but let’s stop with the theatrics and use our heads. Don’t vote for Romney if you don’t want to, vote AGAINST Obama.

Mitt SUCKS because Mitt is a typical politician...say what needs to be said when it needs to be said so for a life time he can line his pockets with other people's money. America has been living with Mitt's ilk for a long time now and tolerating them...

...but he ain't a freakin' muslim hell bent on allowing the muslim brotherhood to have a party with our necks, our women, our children et.al. Anyone who thinks different is just, well....nevermind. Decorum forbids that here.

Just like Penn State.

I’m not going to do what is wrong.

No theatrics, just a simple, plain statement that I won't vote for a pro-abortion, anti-gun, socialized medicine, big government liberal.

This IS a conservative forum, after all.

Just think of all the great things President Romney will be able to push through a GOP controlled Congress.

I’m sure he, Boehnor, McConnell, McCain, and Graham can come up with some great legislation. Maybe they can rehash some of Romney’s old Mass favorites like Romneycare, gay marriage, weapons bans, or cap & trade.

Perhaps Senator Rubio could lead the “comprehensive” immigration reform.

Having Romney with a rubber stamp spineless GOP congress sounds like a great idea. I wouldn’t want those in the GOP dominated Congress of 2012 to have to be in the position of opposing the Democrats and Obama. Sometimes that makes for awkward moments at the cocktail parties.

Unlike you, I don't get my voting instructions from other politicians.

Instead, I have opted to use my head and my principles.

Perhaps, you are different, as you appear to have a shortage of both.

He has stated a conservative position.

I'm not a newb. I don't listen to what they say. I watch what they do.

No way, no how! Romney is a pale Obama. The GOP screwed real Conservatives over for the last time.

“Wait for those “jeaniouses” to come to provide an explanation on how staying home and NOT voting is in no way a vote for the purple lipped prince...
I saw one even try to break it out with math.”


Simple, a vote against Obama and Mittens is a vote against socialism and evil.

I don’t know a single person who is planning on staying home and not voting.

We will vote, just not for Obama or Romney. There are conservatives running and we should be backing them rather than dating our rapist (the GOP).

Choosing “the lesser of two evils” is STILL CHOOSING EVIL.

Gotta go-—don’t want to miss my enema...

“You need to update your understanding of Romney’s position on the issues.: http://www.mittromney.com/issues/
He has stated a conservative position. Obama has demonstrated the opposite and wants four more years to compete the job he has started.
You’all need to get off your high horse and take pity on yourselves and your children.”


You’re first mistake was going to his website. Before he came out for amnesty, it sure as hell wasn’t on his website. Remember how he was bashing Newt for wanting amnesty? How he was all in favor of Arizona’s immigration law? And then, suddenly, he says later he didn’t mean he was in favor of Arizona’s law but only one aspect of it, and now he wants amnesty for young illegal aliens? You should consider all his public positions as “suggestions” until he comes out with a position before or after he is elected. And even then, it’s subject to change, though it can only get more liberal as time goes on.

Just like Obama.
