Posted on 04/30/2012 1:30:07 PM PDT by SoConPubbie
As Mitt Romney prepares for his second presidential campaign and gay marriage threatens to undermine Americas Judeo-Christian culture, theres a raging debate about the role he played in instituting gay marriage in Massachusetts during his gubernatorial term. This is important because Governor Romney has positioned himself as a champion of traditional values and claims to have been an opponent of homosexual marriage his entire career.
When the Massachusetts Supreme Court issued a decision in favor of homosexual marriage, the Goodridge case Romney unilaterally ordered his state agencies to implement homosexual marriage in Massachusetts. The court did not order him to do this nor had the legislature codified this ruling. Combined with a promise by President Obama to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act, this action by Romney has led significantly contributed to the spread of homosexual marriage nationwide.
Make no mistake; Romneys action was utterly illegal. In four different parts of the Massachusetts Constitution, it is clearly stated that only the legislature can change laws and one section specifically states that the marriage statutes are determined by the legislature, not by the courts. Even the Supreme Court itself stated that it could not order the legislature to act. All Romney had to do was to declare the court had no authority to enforce its unconstitutional opinion and ignore its decision.
But instead of doing that, Romney abruptly claimed the court opinion was now the law of the land and ordered his Town Clerks and Justices of the Peace to marry homosexuals even though the legislature never acted to codify the ruling. Indeed, according to a Fox News/AP story, the attorney for the homosexual plaintiffs in Goodridge, held the view that the legislature would have to codify the Goodridge ruling:

Romney is our nominee...or so it appears. Between Romney or Obama, who would you rather have in the office?
No, he’s your nominee, not mine.
Why would I vote or support somebody whose record is so similiar to Obama’s that he guarantees Obama’s re-election?
You just helped me make up my mind. I’m voting for 0bama. Why change horses in the middle of the stream?
Romney is the man whether we like him or not. He has to be better than the POS that’s in the WH now. We can stand 4 years of Romney but we can’t stand 4 more years of Obama!!
“Romney is our nominee...or so it appears. Between Romney or Obama, who would you rather have in the office?”
I’d rather bulldoze the office and rebuild from the original blueprint.
Not "our" nominee. He's a libtard's wet dream. No thanks. I'll vote for a Conservative like Virgil Goode. History shows that if you fail to support a Conservative, a liberal wins.
There may be some Republicans down ticket who are Conservative which I can support, but vote for the guy who spent millions attacking the Tea Party? No thanks. As a matter of fact, NFW!
I might write in Allen West.
I don’t care if Romnay married a a man I would still vote for him against Obama./
Romney aint much , but he isn’t Muslim eoither, and he may be wrongheaded , but he doesn’t hate America.
He has to be! HE HAS TO BE! HE HAS TO BE!!! Now, click your heels together and say "There's no place like home!"
Who TF is Virgil Goode?.
How many votes will he get. Yours and who elses.?
Smart move why go to the polls at all, just stay home.
In all actuality, we can’t stand either.
That’s right. All Romney would do is slow down the train wreck.
We’d all better continue getting into survival mode, folks.
Nice chart. Too bad Newt’s not the nominee. For the record, I voted for Newt in the PA primary. Newt lost. Romney won. Don’t like it, but it is what it is. Romney will still be far better for the country than Obama.
Do you happen to know who is behind that website? All I can find on whois is it is registered to
“Whois Privacy Protection Service, Inc.
PMB 368, 14150 NE 20th St - F1
Bellevue, WA 98007
And that leads to a company called canvasdreams.com, which is a company that hides the owners of websites from the public. I am just wondering if you are pimping a democrat supported website without knowing it?
Then what would you recommend ??
I didn’t vote for McCain in the last election because I thought (and still do) that he was a no good POS. That was my mistake and I won’t make it again. If for no other reason I believe Romney will be much better on National Defense than Obama. As for Romney’s record on Gay’s, who gives a $h!T !! As long as they don’t interfere in my personal life I could care less.
How about if he married a goat? Just trying to see which other of your conservative principles are negotiable. I mean, we've already learned your price.
He may be the GOP's nominee, but he's not "our" nominee if "our" refers to conservatives.
At least until the next shake of that Etch-A-Sketch.
To a realist, that's not an option.
Thank you, yes it is.
why go to the polls at all, just stay home.
Drill here, drill now. This election is all but lost to the liberals such as Obammy, Mittens, those who support either - and so it is up to the grown ups to form a more perfect union of Conservatism. Will Conservatives win this election? Not the top spot, no, but we will be there for 2016 while the GOP joins the Whigs in the dustbin of history.
And yes, America will be damaged by whichever of the two commies, Obammy or Mittens you support - and if you support one, you politically support the other - but America will survive this tragedy of a false dichotomy and in another four years Conservatives will have a new Conservative party to rally around. One free of mushy, fudgepacking RINOs like Rove and Bloomberg, and Graham and, well, especially Mittens.
Yes! Realists did wonderful things in our world's history...
You have it real easy, all you have to do is go to the poles and vote for Obama. I actually have to kind of look the other way and vote for Romney. Man you are so lucky and I’m sure you’re the envy of all the DU folks!!
Yes, keep telling yourself that. Stay in your little bubble. It’s safe in there - helps you to be safe from all the scary stuff that we adults have to deal with.
This so-called expose is written by “Rino Hunter”!? Holy Chicago, is that you, axelrod? Yup, using all community agitating pressure points to alinskyite your boy’s “enemies”.
*sticks fingers in ears* Romney is our nominee!!! I can’t hear you!!! You’re just supporting Obama!!! I can’t hear you!!! Don’t confuse me with facts!!! I can’t hear you!!!
You’ve gotten it totally backward. Chamberlain was not a realist, he was a “head in the sand” kook. The realist was Churchill who offered nothing but “Blood, toil, tears and sweat”. We have to get our heads out of the sand in order to beat Obama. No amount of idealistic dreaming will prevent the election of anyone but Obama or Romney.
Me too, voted for and gave the Newtster too many wasted dollars.
The SoConPubbie posts this screed two or three times a day, uses the same first post, same chart and same arguments.
Mittens maybe a flipper, a spineless, wimp with no code that a conservative would recognize, but he isn't a communist, mooselimb, rabid anti-gun nut, with chicago thug connections and he doesn't want to destroy the USA.
There are a load of FReepers that hate mittens, and while he is far from my ideal, given the choices, the country can't survive another 4 years of this communism.
Romney’s record is shouting at everyone. Do yo not see friend?
Romney could of but didn’t make an exception because of
the teachings of the faith. Catholic adoption agencies
in Massachusetts had to shut down because of the homosexual
agenda, Romney’s support of sodomites could adopt children!!
This is totally against God.
By voting for Obama's hand-picked clone, Romney? You're the one with your head in the sand.
Unless a RINO is ready to hold the basin while an abortionist fills it with broken parts of babies’ bodies, and then tell their own daughter to mount the stirrups, they’re not ready for Romney.
We don't hate Mittens, we just know what he is. Unlike the MittWits with their fingers in their ears...
MittWits have already compromised God, in order to fulfill their illusion of getting rid of Obama.
And so your winning strategy is.....?
I’ll keep asking, it comes down to ~
How can God bless a nation, guide it’s leader with His GRACE, if that man is a Muslim or belongs to some crazy
sect, one that actually reject Our Lord is God?!!!~@
Fits both, Jesus mercy. Romney = Obama.
Pray for a miracle.
Try to stay focused, and carefully read the threads on FreeRepublic that explain how this will be done. It's been laid out countless times. Don't be a liberal and jerk your knee all the time.
You ignored my question. Do you know who owns the private domain registered website that you keep posting from? And if not, maybe you should find out before you use it as a source, that is the way it used to work. You know because maybe someone that place might be mixing opinion with fact.
Looks like Romney's already practiced hwo to bypass checks and balances. Yet people seem to imagine "others" in Congress wil push him to their thinking?
He has a focused agenda and it's nothing to do with our nations people..but his own.
MittWits have already compromised God, in order to fulfill their illusion of getting rid of Obama.

This is truly a sign of the end times. You can’t even vote
for a lessor of two evils.
Insane. BHO is a Herod, we know already. Lying Romney
pretends to be whatever you wish to get elected. Foolish
people are falling for it.
I will not vote for Romney, he has not shown he is for life, just the opposite. He is pro-gay, pro-sodomy.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”......Alexander Hamilton
Exactly! Love it!
Only the damned fools who profess to be conservatives yet have convinced themselves they're doing something good by voting for Romney.
I am referring to the website that you posted at the top of this thread. www.romneyexposed.com. It is not my job to explain Romney’s past, but if you are going to use sources that hide who is funding them, I won’t bother to read them either. Some of what you say about Romney is true, some is exaggerated, but we all know what Obama is, and that Romney is probably going to be the nominee. Everyone on here has read your threads a thousand times, and some of us knew in 2007 what Romney is. But unless you have an alternative that has a chance to compete, continuing to post the same things a thousand times just makes people ignore what you post. You know, one of these times you might have some new information, and noone will even read it, I’m sure you know about the boy who cried wolf, right?
“Smart move why go to the polls at all, just stay home.”
That is tempting, and would be the first such temptation since Ford-Carter in 1976, but there is no way I would miss the opportunity to vote against not just one, but TWO fathers of state sponsored abortion at the same time! How cool is that? It is like rolling a grenade under a table where both Heinrich Himmler and Lavrenti Beria are seated together. BOOM!
There is no way I am going to miss the party.
