(Vanity) Today I voted for a Republican for president, first time since Reagan.
Me | Me12/2/12

Posted on 11/02/2012 6:18:50 PM PDT by Private_Sector_Does_It_Better

I haven't voted for a Republican for president since Ronald Reagan in his reelection. I am an extremely staunch fiscally conservative independent. I've NEVER voted for a democrat, always gone 3rd party or written in a candidate.

It is very ironic that my first Republican vote in ages is for a super rino; BUT I WILL NOT ALLOW THAT MARXIST FRAUD TO CONTINUE OCCUPY THIS SACRED OFFICE FOR ANOTHER TERM.

I pray that, come Tuesday, God will have mercy on this blessed Republic.

Yes, 4 more years of this jackass will be a waking nightmare.

I hope you are just one of millions who are voting the same way, for the same reason.

Your early vote has just made an empty parking space for a car load of Republicans who will vote on election day.

That’s how it’s done.

Now you can relax on Election Day and not have to worry about waiting in a long line to vote.

I’m flying to Nevada on Sunday (have my ticket in hand); I’ll show up at Romney election headquarters in Las Vegas on Monday and volunteer to do anything I can to help. This is the tipping point, 47% of the populous are now takers, four more years and it goes past 50% and the Republic is forever damned. If you love this country, get to your closest swing state and FIGHT.

Romney wasn’t my first choice either, but he is the only choice now. You did the right thing.

I have several Libertarian friends who are writing in “Gary Johnson” no matter what I say. We have argued back and forth for weeks now. They believe if the allow Obama to win, then people will “wake up” whereas if they help Romney win, “the people will be lulled back to sleep”

I cannot convince them that if Obama wins they won’t have a chance to make it better “next time” because we will be living in a socialist nation and they will not be able to say or do anything.

Careful, your nose will develop calluses if you hold it too often. Mine is very callused but my self esteem has suffered. A Romney victory will delay the collapse by, well, not very long really...but watching the media implode will almost be worth it.

Good for you! In Vegas the culinary union gets all the workers out to vote Dem. I would leave notes wherever I go eat saying something like if Obama is elected people won’t have money to go to Vegas and you could lose your job. Of course it would have to be in Spanish too.

I was a registered Libertarian (fiscally, not in regards to foreign politics) for eight years and I genuinely believe Gary Johnson is a good man. I voted for Harry Brown (God rest his soul) twice. BUT Obama will destroy country. Please Freepmail me, I’ ll give you my email address, I’d like to talk “libertarian to libertarian” to persuade them to vote for Romney. He’s a RINO, but he’s a decent person who believes in this this Republic and Obama will forever doom our country to governmental dependence. This is the anthesis of the Libertarian philosophy. Live today to fight on another day!!!!

Anybody so hard left that they were of the libertarian party, is a nut case.

Libertarian Party Platform:

Throw open the borders completely and shut down the Border Patrol and INS; only a rare individual (terrorist, disease carrier etc.) can be kept from freedom of movement through “political boundaries”.

Homosexuals; total freedom in the military, gay marriage, adoption, child custody and everything else.

Abortion; zero restrictions or impediments.

Pornography; no restraint, no restrictions.

Drugs; Meth, Heroin, Crack, and anything new that science can come up with, zero restrictions.

Advertising those drugs, prostitution, and pornography; zero restrictions.

Military Strength; minimal capabilities.

Good job. Now if you could convince the imbecile females in the US to do the same, the MArxist would be gone. If Obama wins, it will be thanks to brainless broads.

Yeah you have made it clear that it wasn't their radical leftism that turned you off, you still appear to be a hard core lefty on the social issues, still in support of their platform in post 22, with the exception of defense.

I am NOT left leaning on social issues, quite the opposite actually. I am most driven politically on economic issues. I side with the right on social issues, but social issues are not my greatest passion politically. I believe that spending more than you take in is immoral.

For some time I’ve said that Tuesday will be Chick-fil-A Day on steroids. And just to make the day complete, after I cast my vote for R-R, I’m going to enjoy a delicious lunch at Chick-fil-A. If peaches were still in season, I’d even say screw the calories, and have a milkshake, too.

Best vanity ever.... well said.

With the help of the "Independents" we have a real chance of getting that marxist fraud out before he can push his anti liberty any more. We can not have that enemy of the Constitution picking any more Supreme Court nominations. Posts like yours are encouraging.

The libertarian party platform listed in post 22 has not changed, I don’t understand how people can embrace that radical of a platform, and join that party.

Partial birth abortion, ending the border patrol and INS, supporting the ENTIRE homosexual agenda, and all the rest.

>> I haven't voted for a Republican for president since Ronald Reagan in his reelection. I am an extremely staunch fiscally conservative independent.

So, basically, your voting pattern has been:

Bush/Quayle '88 = UNACCEPTABLE
Bush/Quayle '92 = UNACCEPTABLE
Dole/Kemp = UNACCEPTABLE
Bush/Cheney 2000 = UNACCEPTABLE
Bush/Cheney 2004 = UNACCEPTABLE
McCain/Palin = UNACCEPTABLE
Romney/Ryan = YES WE CAN!

Well, I don't see your logic, but whatever floats your boat, buddy.

HW Bush raised taxes, GW Bush inflated the deficit to immoral levels. He’s a good man, but I cannot morally support my children inheriting debt like that. McCain and Dole... Please...

Establishment Republicans don’t “float my boat”. We need more Republicans like Ted Cruz (who I voted for today), Tom McClintock (who i voted for CA gov,) and Paul Ryan.

Well, given that he OPPOSED the Republican nominee in 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, and in 2008 (when Obama was the Dem nominee... whoosh! right over YOUR head), apparently "It is Obama" doesn't = "UNACCEPTABLE", unless Obama is the incumbent.

And clearly "It is Dukakis/Clinton/Gore/Kerry" didn't motivate him to support the Republican, either.

So somehow Romney is "less establishment" and therefore you can "morally support" him?
