Posted on 11/02/2012 11:06:00 AM PDT by birdsman
I know that some freepers are reluctant to vote for Romney because he's not conservative enough. Few of us wanted him to be the Republican nominee, and for good reason. This is why I'm voting Libertarian this year. I know the mantra, a vote for Gary Johnson is a vote for Obama, but that's not true in deep blue states like mine (New York). I propose that conservatives in deep blue states agree to vote 3rd party. In return, conservatives in toss up states can hold their noses while voting for Romney.
Gary Johnson is a communist!
Pray for America
Since the hurricane, NY may not be the deep blue state it was.
I’d prefer folks pull the lever for the Constitution Party candidate but I like the general idea. I live in Pennsylvania and despite what 0’s friends are saying, I think it’s going to be close here so we’re voting Romney.
For me in Wisconsin I only have to hold one nostril since Romney put Paul Ryan on the ticket.
Other than that I’m only doing the Romney vote because getting the Republic out of the clutches of this marxist regime is the most important goal.
Back in January I said there was not a dime’s worth of difference between Obama and Mitt. Today I am holding on to that 9cents as our only hope. There is no other choice.
WTF? I think this is a psy-ops troll post.
It could be that Romney takes some surprise blue states.Perhaps NJ? Maybe, just maybe NY?
A vote for anyone else is wasted, and worse.
Vote and vote Romney/Ryan. Remember, they can’t cheat if we win big.
“I am more concerned about evangelicals who are sitting this out”
For every one not voting for Mitt there are 10 Catholics who are voting for Mitt.
I Am a Evangelical and I do have profound issues with the church founded by Joesph Smith.
I Am a Constitutionalist Conservative.
I have voted For Romney but more correclty I Voted Against Obama.
Any vote not for Romney is a vote for Obama for almost all intents and purposes
A vote for anyone but Romeny = a vote for Obama.
I appreciate your concerns but we really can’t afford four more years of Obama. Nothing will be left of our country.
“I propose that conservatives in deep blue states agree to vote 3rd party.”
Choosing to give Obama a vote is your choice. Not a smart one, but your choice.
yu handled this negotiation brilliantly. Draw up the paperwork, get everyone together in the same room, and we can all sign on the dotted line.
And when/if Obama wins re-election YOU, in my opinion, are partly responsible. And, yes you ARE partially responsible, you had a chance to change things but stubbornly refused like a 3 year old. Again, this is just my opinion so just ignore it. =)
Romney might not be as conservative as I would like to see but I still voted enthusiastically for him over the Marxist. I didn’t even consider Johnson.
I live in Minnesota, where no votes that counted have gone to a Republican since ‘72. I wouldn’t worry about voting my conscience unless Obama won the state bu a single vote. But that’s not only highly unlikely; it’s impossible. If the margin is within a few hundred they’ll simply cheat. So no worries.
I am not now, nor have I ever been, a Romney supporter.
But I have every intention of voting for Romney and all of the downticket Republicans this national election cycle.
That said, I maintain that conservatives must keep a watchful eye on a President Romney as he believes in governing by consensus. This was what he did in Massachusetts, and conservatives got the worst of those deals.
Governing by consensus is fine when everyone comes together with some semblance of morality. That is not be the case when compromising with the evil of liberal Democrats, Socialists, Communists or Progressives.
I just cannot UNDERSTAND people!!!!
This election is more than just about ONE PERSON!!!!!
This election is about THE COURSE OF OUR COUNTRY!!!!!
DO WE STAY ON THE SAME COURSE?
I thought about staying home. However, I voted early and held my nose
And voted for Romney. I consider my vote a vote against Obama.
I gave my protest vote to an independent running against senator corker.
Bifurcation fallacy. There really are more than two choices.
Dont care how you couch it. You voted for Obama by proxy.
This is not a game of trade. You either pick the closest one to defeat Obama or you help Obama, period.
I am going to assume your not a brain surgeon.
We’ll be at your door, thanking you, when Obama wins a second term. ;)
So will Libertarins then try to segue back into the GOP??? And in your local, House and US Senate races, will you vote GOP?? After all, no Libertarian will win any office. So,,,,,why not vote Pub for at least the Congressional races? HMMMMNNN You could and still make your pt. with Johnson in NY.
I’m a proud independent conservative and will proudly vote for Mitt!!!
I’m voting for Ryan, I’m voting for Ryan, I’m voting for Ryan. This is my mantra so I don’t have to think about mittens too much while I’m voting AGAINST obama.
“Gary Johnson is a communist!”
You are a doughnut! (Am I playing correctly?)
Agreeing with this sort of thinking allows the ruling class to manipulate you into voting for any candidate whatsoever. All they have to do is make sure his opponent is a nightmare, and you'll duly go pull the lever for the lesser evil.
I'm done voting for evil.
psy-ops troll post.
The guy is impressed with Gary Johnson so he is voting for him. I know that pesky thing called voter choice is distasteful to you, but I give him credit for using his free choice to vote for who he wants and not go against his principles like I did and vote for Romney. I say good for him. It is very refreshing to see people not be afraid to stand up for their principles even if they get harassed for their decision.
In my state the choices are:
The only party platform I could support is Republican. I regard the candidate as a mendacious fraud, however. Toyed with the idea of a Libertarian vote, but then really sat down and read their platform positions. Too many deal killers for me.
For the first time since 1976 I will pass on the top of the ticket. I will go vote down ticket though.
DONT DO IT THIS TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The time to act to put in conservatives is IN THE PRIMARIES
You are not going to “send a message”
NY is NOT SO DEEP in the democraps pockets anymore.
And with the places that usually toss it into the (D) pile now underwater or starving without gas, it could get interesting.
I propose that conservatives, in whatever color state they live, vote for Romney-Ryan. I want Obama to be TROUNCED, HUMILIATED, both in the electoral vote and in the popular vote. Also, as a conservative, I have been relieved to see Romney campaign--both in the primary season and in the general election, no etch-a-sketching--against Obamacare, against Roe v. Wade, and against homosexual "marriage." And putting Ryan on the ticket was a big plus.
If Romney wavers during his presidency, let's "encourage" him then. But for now, I say a united front for Romney is the way to go.
Completely insightful. Worthy of its own thread.
Emotional idiocy to not vote for Romney.
We face two choices. 1 or 0. It’s binary.
The choice is NO CHANCE things will change and only get worse, and some chance.
Logic DICTATES we choose some chance over no chance.
And I am starting to get angry about this, I will not forgive or forget that in this nation’s desperate hour, some chose to throw away their vote empowering the enemy.
As they say, you can lead someone to logic but you can’t make them think. For the love of God, please dont cast a vote that keeps the treasonous marxist in office!
Hiding behind some ostentatious self-righteous rationalization or other while everyone else gets on with the distasteful/dangerous task of ensuring the freedom that you so cavalierly abuse.
.. and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!
Some evangelicals think Catholics and Mormons both belong to cults. Anybody who calls themselves pro-life has no business sitting this one out or throwing away their vote.
Good God, do you really think Gary Johnson has a smidgen of a chance to win the presidency? Yes, a vote for Johnson or anyone else besides Mitt IS a vote for obama. Wake the hell up.
Vote AGAINST O....make sure Romney wins....look a half a loaf is better than none. You can complain and say he isn’t conservative enough. Good for you. Being a purist in politics will get you to the same place a vote for Johnson (or Barr or any of the others) will get you....nowhere.
Go to WND and read David Kupelian’s article entitled Beware The Lesser of Two Evil’s Trap ....see if that doesn’t move you.
Whenb Romney wins it will be up to US to hold his feet to the fire....same is true for house and senate. It is time we do our part
BTW, you and Gary are both wrong about Mitt ~ he's not Conservative at all ~ not a hair ~ just doesn't understand it and is unlikely to after what his father did to his mind when he was but a young chil!.
Are you aware that the legislature in Massachusetts is totally controlled by Democrats? The State Supreme Court is too. The governor of that state has very little power so conservatives will always get “the worst of those deals” no matter who is governor.
Secondly, although the popular vote is not necessary, it is important for Romney to win to prevent any kind of "the people have spoken" shennanigans by Obama. I've heard and spoken with many liberals who are saying that if Obama loses electorally and wins popularly, he should not and possibly will not concede the office.
Just suck it up and vote for Romney. Jim Robinson did, and thats good enough for me.
you are exactly spot on....first things first after all
Free man can vote as they choose. We don’t need grand bargains. That’s the beauty of our system.
