There are options other than the Democrat / Republican brands on the ballot in many states this fall.
Please, there is no need to get so pissed off. Mittens is who he is, what he is not is one of us.
Barring some unforeseen extraordinary event, only one of two men are going to be the next President: Obama or Romney. There is no one else who can possibly win. If you vote for someone else as some kind of a protest vote, you are pissing in the wind because you are in effect voting for Obama.
DanZ, Bray is NOT pissed off because someone is attacking Romney.
What is pissing him off is the CONSTANT dumping of anti-Romney material we’ve all seen before, and no doubt will keep seeing until the election, and perhaps long after. We’d like this thread to be a place of serious discussion and thoughful debate among friends... Is that so wrong?
Certain threads on Free Republic and certain FReepers are at each other’s throats; wanting people banned and zotted for merely disagreeing with them. Can’t we please avoid that here?
I have seen this behavior directed at supporters of EVERY Republican candidate over the past year. Because of this stupid infighting, we’ve lost all the conservative candidates, and some chose not to run (Sarah Palin). most of us on this thread strongly supported every other candidate EXCEPT Romney. In fact, I don’t think I ever met an original Romneybot, that is, someone whose been for Romney since the beginning.
Some long time ago we on this thread agreed not to get into the antagonizing of other people over their candidates, and it worked very well. No one spammed against other candidates here even though it was happening constantly on about every other thread.
We—ok, I, simply speaking for myself (chime in if any reader agrees with me)—do not want that here. I acknowledge I have no power to enforce it, except to ask people kindly not to do so.
Free Republic has lost a number of good people over the past year due to this mean-spirited infighting. I’m deeply saddened by this. I’m not going to argue in favor of Romney, but if you don’t see that the game is over I don’t know what else to say. I know I will vote AGAINST Barrack Hussein Obama come November.
There may be options, but none of the options will win the election.
