Skip to comments.(Vanity) Today I voted for a Republican for president, first time since Reagan.

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.
You’re a good man. Thank you.
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.
God BLESS you and thank you.
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.
Thank you. And I join you in your prayer.
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.
if Obama wins, I really think it could be the last real election we have
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.
if 0bama wins this election, this election won’t have been real
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!!!!
Well done! Now get 4 friends or family members to do the same.
Thanks Blue. That means a lot to me.
May God have mercy on your soul.
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.
Repeal the 19th Amendment!
I have been hearing that BRD for decades this is the first time I think it could come to bear
Hapax - I lived in California during the 2008 election (in Texas now), my vote did not those contribute to those leftist jurist appointments. Had I been in a swing state my vote would would have been different.
Ansel - that is exactly why I re-registered as an independent a decade ago. Too many isolationists in that party for me.
Obama didn’t want your vote. He wants your money!
He wants wants my money AND the money of every hard working American.
I have been a voter in Missouri since November 8, 1988, two days after my 18th birthday. I have always seen my duty was to assure the leftest candidate lost.
OFA (Foe in ebonics, BTW) AKA 0bama gets to keep your $$ when he loses.
Just imagine all that $$$$$$$$.
You are true patriot! Thank you!!
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.
The issues you list are exactly why I re-registered as an independent over a decade ago.
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.
And you are responsible for Stevens, Roberts and Souter. All pro Obamacare votes.
PS - I voted in California in those elections which was going dem regardless of my vote.
Yes. And that is why I left that party.
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.
Where do you live in Texas; I moved here a year ago and love this great state.
It appears that your voting is irrational and illogical.
Are you institutionalized?
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.
“I pray that, come Tuesday, God will have mercy on this blessed Republic.”
I pray that there are many more like you: folks who’ve seen the danger is so great from the Marxist Usurper that they could no longer stand by idly and let evil prevail.
3 days before an election and the Democrat candidate is talking about REVENGE... how much more do we need to know?
I hated Romney in the primaries, but I LOVE him in the general. This one is too important to screw around.
It is Obama =UNACCEPTABLE
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?
