Battered GOP Voter Syndrome
RWWN ^ | 8/7/2012 | John Alan

Posted on 08/07/2012 3:18:06 PM PDT by not romney

“Ok so he cheats on you and mistreats you, do you really want to raise the kids on your own?”

'Battered GOP voter syndrome' is exactly the same. “Yeah the GOP's candidate ran to the left of Ted Kennedy, signed socialized medicine into law and proclaimed his views to be progressive, do you really want to cause the destruction of the entire planet by allowing Obama to be reelected?”

A compromise between good and evil means evil wins. The GOP has been compromising for so long that we now have an unsustainable dependent class. Any move to “do the right thing” now will be met with riots and anarchy. And, believe it or not, there are people on this very site who still want me to vote for Romney.

Dumb analogy for so many reasons. Not the least being, a battered woman has a whole world of alternatives, we have only Romney or Obama. The truth is attacking Romney at this point is just shilling for Obama.

Romney being the nominee is the failure of the conservatives, not the success of his campaign.

That article is SPOT on. 8 years of Romney is worse than 4 years of Obama. We can fight the later. The former will end Conservatism forever.

I will never, ever vote for Hussein, but you can’t drag me into the voting booth to vote for the man that would kill Conservatism. And those that think that Obama’s re-election means Satan rules on Earth .. well . . .Karl Rove just LOVES you.

Obama, or Romney. The marxist muslim, or the liberal mormon.

These are the choices. There will be no miracle at the RNC. Romney is going to be the nominee. Come November, the winner will be Romney, or Obama. Support the significant lesser of the two evils, or be an enabler of the far greater of the two evils. Those are our choices.

Frankly I'm sick of all the complete idiots here who think 4 or 8 years of Romney will be worse than 4 more years of Obama. It's like they haven't noticed anything that has happened during the last 3 years.

Not voting in this election will just make Obama's chances of a second term that much more likely. And 4 more years of Obama will be the death of America.

We simply cannot have 4 more years of Obama. You never know if Obama would simply ignore the Constitution and a start a police state. That risk doesn’t exist with Romney.

I’m for Romney because I don’t want to see the death of America with Obama. 4 more years means he has nothing left to lose and you never know if him and his minions would simply go against the Constitution on everything and start a police state. His narcissism could bring that about.

The answer is to pack the Senate and the House with conservatives who will make the President play ball. He only signs the stuff that comes to him. If he doesn’t they need to override him.

It's not odd at all.

That's what happens when you demand an absolutely perfect, flawless candidate. You get the absolute worst, most flawed candidate.

"Conservatives" trashed and dumped Cain, Perry, Bachmann, Santorum, and Gingrich because of one or two mistakes they made or flaws that they had. And now we get Romney.

^ THIS ^ I live in one of the deep, deep bluest cities of all the deep, deep bluest states EVER; and there's simply no earthly way any Mittbot -- no matter how desperately they troll -- can conceivably guilt me into surrendering my lone, principled vote when Mittens' odds of actually carrying Seattle are appreciably less than those of Janeane Garofalo winning the Miss Universe pageant next year.

No. I expect that real Conservatives don’t bend and sway to fit the current condition. You’re a Conservative or you aren’t. If you vote for a liberal, you aren’t.

The proposition that a Conservative should have to demand a Conservative candidate is mind-boggling.

Frankly, my opinion is that Mr. Robinson should call off the truce with Mittens voters. This site is for Conservatives.

How many Congresscritters and how many Senators would that take? Remember, there would have to be enough willing to buck Romney and their Party. I do not believe there are enough running to do that.

As a start, it would require 60 Senators, not counting many of the Liberal/Moderate ones in there now. I would feel much better if I thought your plan had a chance of success.

Well that was a dumb statement on your part.

We have a Conservative in the race. If Conservatives vote for the Conservative rather than doing the cheese eating surrender monkey thing and going along with whatever Chris Wallace tells them to do, then We'll have a shot at putting a Conservative in the White House rather than flaming liberals like mitt and obie.

This is the first I've heard of this.

Who? And does he/she have a snowball's chance in hell of winning? And has he/she not said the he/she has no interest in running and/or endorsed Romney?

I don't mean for this to sound snarky or rude, I'm genuinely curious.

Third (and 4th, 5th, etc.) party candidates have zero chance of winning, threfore they are not actual alternatives. The next president will be either Obama or Romney, because conservatives could not put forward a candidate who could get a plurality of Republican votes, let alone the general electorate.

Like I said, attacking Romney at this point is just shilling for Obama.

You are correct, laws don’t matter to Obama, and Obama is only going to jack things up more! Obama is going to impose so many regulations over the next 4 years that it will take a decade to untangle the mess! If Romney even SLOWS down the implementing of Obama care it will be a major achievement!

Ronald Reagan had some words for you "dogma uber alles" purists. You people are the Democrats best allies. You are so busy shooting your own in the back you never have any time to fight the Democrats on anything. You people are progressive Democrats in everything but name.

By Ronald Reagan in his autobiography An American Life

“When I began entering into the give and take of legislative bargaining in Sacramento, a lot of the most radical conservatives who had supported me during the election didn’t like it. “Compromise” was a dirty word to them and they wouldn’t face the fact that we couldn’t get all of what we wanted today. They wanted all or nothing and they wanted it all at once. If you don’t get it all, some said, don’t take anything. I’d learned while negotiating union contracts that you seldom got everything you asked for. And I agreed with FDR, who said in 1933: ‘I have no expectations of making a hit every time I come to bat. What I seek is the highest possible batting average.’ If you got seventy-five or eighty percent of what you were asking for, I say, you take it and fight for the rest later, and that’s what I told these radical conservatives who never got used to it.”

It's better if I get 100% of what I oppose politically rather then get 75-80% of what I want politically.

That is your purists position. It is idiotic and self defeating. GROW up, nothing in life is ever going to be 100% perfect. Running around scream hysterically because the world isn't perfect is childish and self defeating.

You people are the useful idiots the Democrats count on election after election.

Asking for a Conservative candidate without a record of promoting abortion, homo marriage, gun grabbing and a socialist health care system.

It’s gotten so bad that asking for this is considered “progressive Democrat”? On Free Republic? Pffft. What a joke. You’re voting for liberal. I’m not.

Your choice is Romney or Obama. Currently you are playing PR mouthpiece for team Obama. Considering he is 100% opposed to everything you claim to stand for, that is an idiotic place for you to be.

See #24. Pure, brute math makes it both demonstrable and screamingly self-evident that Mittens:

a.)... Mittens cannot, and will not, win Seattle; AND --

b.)... any huffy, red-faced insistence that I throw my vote away upon him, regardless of said concrete f-a-c-t, is the only "emotion-based dogma" currently in the room.

Plainly, you know nothing of this city, or state. Educate yourself, and then get back to me.

I’m staying true to my principles and not voting for either one of them. I don’t vote for liberals. Period.

You have a good night. I think I’ll steer clear of the Romney threads for awhile. Watching FReepers promote a liberal is more than I can stomach.

Someone who insists they are a conservative but will vote for a liberal is exactly like someone who insists they are a vegetarian while they are eating a big, juicy t-bone steak.

You are not a vegetarian but a hypocrite and a liar.

Rationalizing and equivocating does not make it truth.

It is actually pathetic.

Cognitive dissonance.

You mis-state the situation.

It would be 8 years of Obama, not 4, if Romney loses.

And it's not guaranteed that it would be 8 years of Romney, if he wins. He could be replaced in 2016 with another Republican.

More likely, Romney would be replaced in 2016 with a Democrat. Chuck Schumer is in charge of the Presidential Inaugural festivities in January. Minutes after Romney is sworn in, Schmuckie would run to the cameras and announce "It's Romney's economy now!" All the land mines Obama and the DemocRATs laid would be set to go off, and the media would blame it all on Romney. 2016 would be a Republican blood bath, with the Democrats winning back the House, the Senate, and the Presidency. Hey, Obama could run again! The DemocRATs message leading up to 2016? "WE TOLD YOU SO!"
