Notice: Free Republic has been in full rebellion mode since 2008 and will remain in full rebellion mode for the duration!
No more Doles!! No more McCains!! No more RINOS!!
Those who cannot stomach rebellion might as well start looking for a new home on the net!!
Those who have ignored my hundreds of posts on this crucial issue or who have doubted me these last three or four years might as well get used to it. FR will never support the abortionist, homosexualist, socialist, mandate loving, constitution trampling liar Mitt Romney.
In case you haven't noticed, a TEA Party rebellion is on and Free Republic signed on years ago. There is no turning back. No more crap from the GOP-e!! They've screwed us for the last time!! Karl Rove and Mitt Romney, et al, loathe conservatism and loathe the tea party and took it upon themselves to use their money and connections to destroy nearly every one of our conservative tea party candidates while pushing their big government RINOS. That makes them the enemy. I will not reward that betrayal by giving them my support or my vote.
FR is and will remain a pro-life, pro-limited government conservative site!!
We are beholden to NO ONE!! We bow to no kings!! We bow to NO RINOS!!
I'd rather fight and die like a man than bend over and be screwed by a RINO!! I refuse to kiss Karl Rove or Mitt Romney's rings!! They can kiss my rosy red ass instead!!
Long live the rebellion!!
Hope my message is clear.
Jim, the bottom line (IMO and I believe as demonstrated throughout) is that most of these people know the truth about Romney. They just don’t care. They are either afraid and letting their emotions rule them or as I suspect is more often the case, ‘cafeteria Conservatives.’ When the chips are down, and you did indeed put them down, they, as displayed by the existence of this 1000+ and the original 500+ post thread, have spent more time ignoring your clear as glass statement and railing on anyone who backs it.
It kills me that rather than just saying “I disagree,” manning up and taking their Romney support elsewhere as instructed, they double down and intend to ‘shame’ us into backing off.
These people’s attitude IS what got America in this mess. Rather than stand against open communism, they, by their own words, intend to choose ‘lesser evil’ and pride themselves on the choice. They are either too self absorber or too morally bankrupt to see their folly. Either way, conservative they are not. The time has come to stand up and the have chosen to stand aside. the true “REALITY” (to use their oft quoted term) here.
I know a few (thank Heavens it's a few) people like that. Pathological liars who tell the lie so often I think they're unable to KNOW what is the truth.
We do NOT want that sort of person in the White House. We've already got one, and look where that's gotten us...
Thank you for working for Gingrich as a volunteer in Georgia. I’m glad that turned into a victory.
Let’s hope there are more victories down the road. It’s a long shot, but I see no other shots out there.
Thank you very much, dearest Jim. I don’t know how many times you have tried to make yourself clear, nor how many times you will do so in the future, but I hope and pray FReepers will get your message sooner rather than later or too late for “some.”
NO CAMPAIGNING for the likes of the Massachusetts vicious and wanton liar, who’s ruined this primary for all conservatives and actually for the American people, too.
Like you said, he’s a “proven compulsive liar with a known record of abortion and big government socialism, liberal appointments, etc.”, plus there’s not a conservative bone in his body.
We trust in Him, and prayerful people can disagree right now, so I urge everyone here, to continue to pray. It’s only April. The primaries are not over. Nothing is sealed in cement. Go Newt!
Stand stong. Stand with Jim and our Conservative, TEA Party values and principles, which are Constitional as our Founders wrote.
God bless you all and God bless Free Republic!
I know a few (thank Heavens it's a few) people like that. Pathological liars who tell the lie so often I think they're unable to KNOW what is the truth. Or care. Whatever suits their purpose IS "the truth".
We do NOT want that sort of person in the White House. We've already got one, and look where that's gotten us...
Agree with you 100%. Romney is IMO just as bad for the country as Obama. His is a self serving motive. He hasn’t the conservative’s desire to lead us back to the greatness that America was. Romney is NO Conservative. He’s what the GOP-e have redefined conservatism to be. I’ve railed on that point perhaps too often at this site.
I think the ticket is downticket. Vote, and vote well for all the Conservatives downticket. Vote out the RINO’s that we can, and vote in the TEA Party we have available. Get true, and honest American patriots that understand the Constitution, and what it meant to the success of this Nation for so long, and start the lengthy process to restore America to greatness.
I’m NOT giving up on Newt. He has to say when. I won’t second guess him. When he says that’s it, it’s over then I’ll refocus my attentions strictly upon the Congress, and the other downticket races.
I made my position clear in post 818 for anyone to read...you can spin it however you want based on your own obvious agenda and slant.
If Romney wins the nomination I will back him over Obama. Newt has not bowed out yet, so, after Sarah, Cain, and Santorum, now I support Newt.
I pray for a brokered convention...that would give us a chance to get a more conservative candidate for President.
But, if that doesn’t happen, then that post speaks my mind and it is really pretty easy to understand and why...I say so. And it is not the words you are attempting to put in my mouth.
Thank you for the note, Onyx.
I agree we need to be very careful voting for a person with a history of untruthfulness, though the reality is that many politicians have that problem.
One virtue of a reputation for bluntness is it gives the speaker the freedom to be forthright rather than polite.
ALL: Over the next almost 7 months, there will be countless attempts like this one to "guilt you" into voting for a socialist pro-abortion pro-liberal judge appointing "I'm a god."
Whenever you encounter them, think of this parallel:
Who is culpable -- besides the GoP-e -- for giving us Romney to begin with?
...It's kind of like a relative coming to you and asking if you approve of the guy she's chosen for marriage...
...You frankly, repeatedly, with full reasons why -- including a careful background search of the guy -- tell the female relative, "No, he's not the right guy for you."
...Then guess what happens?
Surprise, surprise! The "marriage" doesn't last very long...
But guess who the ex-bride will blame for the "marriage" not working out???
Yup...'twas your fault...
Tho you tried & tried & tried to warn her that it wouldn't proceed very far, she just wouldn't listen...
And what is almost as bad -- the ex-bride's family & friends temporarily rallied behind her to extol this guy to the world as being a true "catch"...They hid from the world all the horrible things they knew about him, and became apologists for him re: the trail of aborted babies he left behind in previous relationships...
And now the ex-bride's reputation for life is forever linked with this sorest apology of a guy (let alone not living up to the "god in embryo" he is touted to be)...And these cheerleaders-from-hell who endorsed the bridegroom...the ones who would betray the womb...betray the cause against socialism?
Why, they've become -- with it growing daily -- marginalized. Silenced.
Their vocal chords & keyboards vs. socialism & abortion & liberalism have been "traded in."
They are like Jacob of the Bible, who traded his inheritance for a bowl of lentil soup. In this case, they have traded their Free Republic heritage for a "lentil soup" candidate, all because they refuse to "taste" defeat in April and want to delay the hunger pangs of defeat until November.
We're all temporary losers here. The difference here is that we're discerning it now; some people will need to be hit over the head in November to come to their political senses.

Every voter needs to see it.
Every student in government schools really needs to see it and digest it.
Now Planned Parenthood the most evil organization since the Waffen SS is going gang busters on Romney saying he wants to kill women, by not allowing breast cancer scans and what not.
All the Hollyweird psychos on Twitter are linking directly to Planned Infanticide...
WTF does the left fear? Romney supports abortion! Why would they be bitching about Romney wanting to kill women? These people are so drugged out it is disgusting.
Maybe it's the drugs, maybe it's the fame, Boycott Hollyweird.
This is a tactic by the psychos on the left to hurt our true tea party candidates who are running for State and Federal Elections. These people are freaks!!!
The Republican nominee has not been determined yet. What many of the rominy defenders are doing at FR is trying to roll a pee-stained snowball up so big that Newt will be hidden from view leaving only the yellow stain Rominy. It is a political strategy as old as politics, but in this race it is despicable. Jim says there will be no campaigning for Romney here, but these liars are doing it by trying to erase Newt from view leaving ‘only left with Romney’. Reading the thread, that phrasing has jumped out from posts too often to be an accidental choice of words.
Only left with statism. Choose the kinder gentler statist. So to speak.
If we have a conservative nominee would “be willing to” actually fix things, then we can confidently elect them and expect success.
I don’t share that confidence. As I have stated numerous times, our country is so far off the rails that any conservative we elected to cut entitlement spending even 10% would likely see congress change hands within two years and he/she would be slaughtered in four.
Look at Wisconsin.... a small cut to benefits and they shut down the capital for weeks. Realistically, what do you think will happen when they cut food stamps, welfare, social services, union contracts, pensions, medicaid, medicare, and social security?
I could support such a candidate, but our problems won’t be fixed in two, four, eight, or even sixteen years. We are looking at drastic cuts in government spending spread out over decades to get out of the hole we find ourselves in. Reagan could not do it and he was the finest communicator and most pursuasive President we have seen in my lifetime.
They are like Esau (not Jacob) of the Bible, who traded his inheritance for a bowl of lentil soup. In this case, they have traded their Free Republic heritage for a "lentil soup" candidate, all because they refuse to "taste" defeat in April and want to delay the hunger pangs of defeat until November.
A reluctant, and bitter, "me too."
Sometimes a terrible choice is the best choice available. Certainly better than playing Pontius Pilate, and piously washing your hands, and disclaiming responsibility for the reelection of BO.
I took a quick overall read. I will go back later on and read more in depth.
I’d never vote Romney. If Newt is the guy that gets the nomination, as opposed to Santorum, or a wildcard at the convention, I believe he still needs to be kept on a very, very short leash. I do not have the trust/faith in him others do at this point.
