Skip to comments.Purpose of FR and why we can never support Mitt Romney

Our purpose and goal on FR is to restore, defend, preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States and to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity!!
The goal of the domestic enemy (the left), i.e., the statist liberals, Marxists and progressives is just the opposite.
The goal of the establishment RINO is to gain control of political power, but not to otherwise rock the boat. The boat continues taking on water and listing sharper to port every time the left takes over, but the unprincipled RINOs do absolutely nothing to right her when they get a chance. In fact, the RINOs actually tack on plenty of their own unconstitutional baggage when they're in power and so our ship of state today is in pretty bad shape.
RINO Romney is one of the worst. We can thank him for being the chief architect of ObamaCare, which if we cannot get overturned and repealed, will finally accomplish the left's major objective of shredding the final remnants of our tattered constitution and ending our God-given Liberty forever (they think).
The liberals believe our constitution is a flawed document written in a different time for different circumstances by rich old racist white men and no longer applies to today's circumstances. They're now even trying to promote the idea that the constitution was never intended to limit or restrict the powers of government.
Like hell! That was and is its primary intent! And we who have sworn an oath to defend it, will defend it--from all enemies, foreign and domestic!
And that's FR's purpose and reason for being.
Romney may be a Republican, and that's questionable, because he's violated nearly every plank in the Republican party's official pro-God, pro-Life, pro-Family, pro-Constitution, pro-Liberty platform, but he's definitely no conservative. In fact his record is that of a statist liberal progressive. And he's a total fraud to boot, with a nasty habit of lying--about everything. He'll do and say anything if he thinks it will help him get elected. He's a two-bit, unprincipled political whore.
Here's Romney's record on some of our primary issues of concern compared to Obama's:
|Gov forced healthcare||check||check|
|Tax payer funded abortion||check||check|
|Man-made global warming||check||check|
|Ted Kennedy pal||check||check|
|Enemy of Reagan/Bush||check||check|
|Enemy of the tea party||check||check|
|Enemy of Liberty||check||check|
|Defender of the Constitution||no||no|
|Works across the aisle||no||yes|
|Architect of ObamaCare||no||yes|
All of the above plus much more is documented in the RomneyTruth files on FR. Click the RomneyTruthFile keyword at the top of the main page. Also watch the "New Romney Campaign Video" also linked at the top of the main page. Watch it all the way through. I even saw some clips I'd never seen before. Pretty damning stuff for anyone running for president as a Republican.
Let's face it folks, the elite establishment RINO corps hates the tea party, hates conservatives, are afraid and even ashamed to have us identify ourselves as Republicans, feel we are dangerous extremist, racist, bigoted bible thumping, gun-toting, flag-waving neanderthals. The tea party is the best thing to happen for America since 1776 and our tea party candidates are the best thing for the GOP since Ronald Reagan, but what do the elite establishment RINOs do? They declare us the enemy! They went after Sarah Palin and some of our other tea party candidates with bared fangs and talons. Karl Rove and company were and continue to be as nasty and shameless on the attack as the nastiest lying liberal. Sarah Palin was the most exciting new face in GOP politics in a century and would have been a landslide 57 state victory over the corrupt, lying Marxist/progressive Obama. But the good ol' boys, i.e., the elite establishment corrupt crony capitalist GOP bastards could have none of that. Instead, they've opted to go all in with a corrupt, lying statist/progressive of their own: Willard (the Rat) Romney.
Well, good luck getting the Rat elected without the committed grassroots, pro-life, pro-constitution conservatives or the majority of the tea party.
FR, for one, will not play that game. NO MORE RINOS!!
No Romney. NOT ON FR!! NOT ON MY WATCH!!
Should Romney be "the one," I'll vote for the down-ticket conservatives on the ballot, but I will not vote for an abortionist, gay-rights pushing, gun-grabbing, global-warming advocating, big government healthcare mandating statist/progressive for president!! I'd rather write-in the name of the tea party conservative who best matches my beliefs. Romney is no 80 percenter. Not even close! He's the backstabbing enemy within.
God bless America!!
Long live the Republic!!
Or make them cower in the corner and cover their ears...
Put in your licks, like the rest of us had to.
Respect on FR is EARNED.
My hope is that more people reading this will work to defeat Romney in IA or NH or SC.
If it’s important enough to defy him next NOV, it’s important enough to defeat him this winter.
Here comes the stirring of the hornet’s nest.
Believe me, I can’t stand Rompit. I curse the corrupt machine that would consider him the best that the Republicans can run against Ø. Is it any wonder I’m not registered a Republican, but a conservative independent?
I’m just wondering what this neck of the woods is going to look like if god forbid Mittstake is on the marquis at the 2012 RNC. Painful as it may be, it’s a fact that if that’s the choice for the RepNom, it’ll either be Mitt Romney or Barack Hussein Øbama who will take that oath a year from January. Any other proposed outcome is a break from reality. So your noble and justifiably principled opposition to MR would make FreeRepublic a de facto pro-Obama website that ill-fated day Romney is seen as inevitable candidate.
My complicity in such a resolute disposition would be a tough sell to my future grandchildren when they look me in the eye and ask what I did to oust the admitted Marxist President back in 2012 whose re-election fundamentally transformed their liberties onto the ash heap of history.
Again, DAMN the Republican establishment who may propel the least conservative on the stage to the nomination. And BRAVO in your efforts to avert such a calamity during this historically critical primary. But to say there’s “no difference” between him and a full-on Marxist who is so obviously intent on the destruction of any semblance of Unity in the United States... that’s pure hyperbole and I know you’re too intelligent not to admit it.
I love this site and the last thing I would want is a political pissing match with Jim Robinson over this election. But if you are determined to use Free Republic to actively work to defeat any man who would dethrone Øbama, this is going to be an interestingalbeit lonely place.
Another poster the other day brought up the point of congress and the house. We need to ALSO be working hard to get conservatives in there - and doing it NOW. Along with your non-Romney Republican of choice for the nomination.
And don’t vote for Romney. If Romney is in, his liberal ideas, liberal judges, etc. will be more likely to pass congress/house if we have a majority R. (Hey - we’re all republicans, right?!) But the Rep. congress/house will make it tough for Obama to get his crap (including liberal judges) through.
And of course a Romney presidency just furthers the idea that only a “moderate” Republican can ever get elected.
I thought that was a good point.
Nice. Like it.
Being shielded by a big victim card...
Romney will have no chance against Obama if he’s the nominee.
“I have identified some Perry supporters who I think are Romney and Paul supporters.”
I must have missed that, can you give me a name or a link please? I really don’t want to be fooled by one of these nefarious sleepers.
“They end up on Cain threads attacking Cain.”
Um...really? Because the ones I see attacking Cain can be tracked back most times directly to Perry threads, supporting him.
“I am happy Jim Robinson has written this article. He doesn’t want Romney supporters here infecting Cain or Perry threads.”
I agree with you. I hope this policy stands even after the nomination process is over.
“For seeking a clear establishment of positions?”
I think that Mr. Robinson was pretty clear.
Romney is a pro-abortion, gun grabbing advocate for gay rights that supports the global warming tripe and believes that the government should be able to force me to purchase health-care.
He is no conservative.
My sentiments exactly. I’ve told some if Romney is the nominee, I will only vote for Senate & House candidates and sit out voting for President. I cannot vote for someone who would be a worse nominee than John McLame was.
Do you think having Obama-lite is worse than having Obama?
What really needs to happen are closed primaries, Michigan being one of them. That’s a problem. Supposedly Michigan will vote for Romney ‘cause he’s a home boy.
I prefer Cain, could go with Perry, and don’t want Romney any where near the Presidency. He’s smarmy. I WILL NOT,however, refuse to vote for him at the end of the day if Romney ends up, by some nasty twist of fate, being the candidate. Will not give Obama the satisfaction of a “win.”
And “Slick Mitt” even said he was an Independent during the Reagan era.
Buzz off. See my statements at the top of the thread. I will never vote for that progressive statist baby murdering bastard!! Period!!
Exactly, with the exception of Cheney, very few VPs have had any real influence.
And that sounded great! Except it won’t happen. Perry’s machine includes all the R governors and THEIR machine on top of that.
I spent a few days in Cain fairytailville, I’ve adored him for years as Boortz’ sit-in.
I spent a couple years hoping for Sarah even though I knew that wasn’t going to pan out, either.
I was still warm to Cain until he snuggled up to Mittens and singularly excluded Perry.
RE: Your tagline.
Really? I know some may question his 999 plan. Some may view him as the flavor of the month.
But you despise him that much?
Because people don't WANT to see it. They are just as blind as they were 3 years ago......
Love you, Jim, and love FR. But Romney is my dead-last choice among viable candidates... except Obama.
Stop Romney and Obama.
