Skip to comments.Why Iím Voting for Mitt Romney and Why You Should Too
Posted on 07/27/2012 3:37:16 PM PDT by Signalman
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 dont like Barack Obama is because hes black. Theres no truth it. There are a number of black people I would love to see sitting in the White House, not because theyre black, but because their worldview is right.
In fact, its the white half of Obama that I dont like. How could his mother, who is white, associate with so many self-avowed Marxists? Didnt she know how socialist, Marxist, and fascist policies have destroyed nations? Didnt she realize that it was socialism and Marxism that has kept much of Africa in poverty? Lets 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 dont 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 dont get behind Romney, its almost assured that we will lose congressional seats.
Some will say that Romneys just like Obama. Thats nonsense. Is Romney as conservative as I would like to see in a candidate? No. But hes 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 dont know. Thats why we need a strong Congress to put a brake on any broken-promise policies.
There are lots of people who believe Ron Pauls going to get the nomination at the convention. Its 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 didnt win. Get over it for this election.
Romneys been going on the attack. His comments on Obamas You didnt build that speech was fiery and passionate. This conversation with Brian Williams encouraged me that Romneys not afraid to take on the media and doesnt 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 hes looking for an incredibly boring white guy to be his vice-president. Here was Romneys 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 theyre dealing with someone whos not afraid to fight back without being nasty. Lets be clear: The media are a fifth column. Theyre going to do everything they can to get Obama re-elected. They cant admit that they made a huge mistake in 2008.
The majority of Americans arent as conservative as most readers of this website. Were still dealing with an electorate thats on the government dole. They need Obama to win. Theres not much thats 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 dont believe in messianic politics. I dont believe any candidate is going to save us. Many of the problems our nation faces were created by us. Were government drunkards. Too many of us like government programs that benefit us while we rail against programs that dont. If you send your children to government (public) schools, youre on the dole. You might not like hearing that, but its true. Youre not paying what it really costs. Youre using some of your neighbors money.
If we play this election right, Romney will give us a chance to right the ship of State. Liberals arent afraid of making small gains. We didnt lose this nation in one election; were 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.”

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.
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.
Please explain how this position is any different from the ABOs "If you don't vote for Romney you're really an Obama supporter".
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.
...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.
He never slipped up and talked about his muslim faith in front of Jorge Stepapoopalous, did he?
Just like Penn State.
I’m not going to do what is wrong.
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.
Instead, I have opted to use my head and my principles.
Perhaps, you are different, as you appear to have a shortage of both.
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.
“HE’S NOT OSAMA OBAMA!”
There it is..and AMEN
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 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...
Reason 1 is enough.
“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.
Youall 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.
