I am "Divorcing" the GOP-E and "Republican Party" effective TODAY!
Your argument is with yourself, and I disagree with some of your conclusions.
Conservative no longer means automatic Republican.
Thus you are just seen here on out as an Independent as the only influence the media cares about is money and polls on votes and which category demographically and party wise. I think where these numbers are most apparent is in the Republican primaries. You see a percentage voting for Romney and you see the percentage that did not. Unfortunately the even smaller percentage going forward of those that did not vote for Romney aren't in a high enough percentage to influence anything newsworthy.
These aren't tantrums. They're fundamental disagreements with the direction the party is taking. They'll be over than the Republican party decides to be conservative again. If you're interested in taking sides in this year's war of the empty suits and the hollow rhetoric that apolitical, amoral consultants poll test and put in their mouths, then enjoy it to your heart's content. The rest of us who have actual standards for who we think should fill the shoes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Ronald Reagan will stick to them.
I think Mitt has a good chance. Only one incumbent who replaced the other party when first elected has lost his reelection bid in modern time — Jimmah Carter.
So yes, the deck is stacked against anyone the Republicans nominate.
Obama is the favorite, but his economy is in shambles.
You never know...
I get being disappointed with Romney. I was a Perry supporter myself and think he would have been a much stronger conservative candidate. But the thing is, Romney got the most votes in the GOP primaries. If a conservative had gotten more votes, wed have a conservative nominee, its as simple as that. Dropping out isnt going to prove anything.
Perry is who I was for also. However Romney won, and I am sure we are going to spend the next 6 months reading so many posts about how I won't vote for him blah blah blah.
Then if he wins there will be wailing and gashing of teeth.
If he loses there will be I told you so blah blah blah.
For me those people have lost all credibility and about the only reason I might like to hear from them is to know who to beware of in the future because I would have great doubts about whoever they support down the road. I have a tough time with quitters and don't value their opinion or advice.
Say what you want. Not going to vote for Romney. Your insults are rejected.
It’s not that the GOP is stupid- it is that THEY ARE CORRUPT AND PART OF THE PROBLEM.
Reality check-we conservatives really are a minority in the USA, despite the MSM propoganda to the alternative.
The USA has been on a steady decline since the 60’s, “managed” at times by Republicans, only a few actual conservatives managed to bring us back from the brink for a few years (AKA Reagan).
Not voting is a perilous position. Mr. Obama cannot be allowed another term.
Does that mean you are voting for Obama or just not voting at all which is also a vote for Obama? Or maybe you are one of those write in or third party guys which is also a vote for Obama. Let’s remember the objective.....BEAT OBAMA!
Won’t do any good to re-register. Still only have to dopes to choose from.
Once a FReeper learns that what you wrote is true, they will be on their way to recovery. Thanks.
I finally ‘woke up’ from the nightmare from GOP. They’ve taken the “I Won” reeeaaalllly well. Like they always did/do.
The groundswell 9/12 project, the TEA party movement that brought the 2010 ‘victory’ for conservatives. Then what happened? ‘Nice, now go sit in that back row of seats (and wait your term)’ by the nice party elites, and we had them competeing for ‘who’s the nicest guy in DC’.
The usually SC justice pick scare tactic no longer worked on me, it did its jobs for GWB then McCain.
Ironically I just switched back over from Independent to Republican so I could vote for Newt yesterday. But I can switch again whenever I want to.
So Romney lent money to someone who started a successful business with it, and this somehow makes him a genius qualified to be president? No, it makes him a rich boy who used money to make money. He's not a complete idiot, but with the kind of money he had access to, you only need to be of average intelligence at best to profit off of it. Besides there were a tiny handful of companies Bain actually was involved in starting. Almost all of their work was taking failing businesses, getting the owners to sign contracts under duress that put almost no risk on Bain, and to rig up the financial mechanisms so that even if the businesses went bankrupt, which they did a huge amount of times, Bain would still profit. Bain is the story of how big money privatizes the gains and socializes the losses. It's crony capitalism and corporatism at its finest, run by the kind of heartless vultures that give capitalism a bad name.
Good response. With either Obama or Romney, the gays take over. And Romans tells us "God gave them up to depravity". Success comes from God. And it appears He has given up the U.S.
On the bright side, God always keeps a remnant. Stay strong.
Too simplistic an objective. Not the best plan.
the only way i’d vote for romney is if he wins and there are plans afoot to primary him out in 2016
Agreed. I’m part of the I’d rather have someone with me
70 per cent of the time than 0 per cent of the time. Someday
a true conservative could be nominated by the GOP. Probably
the same year the Dems nominate a conservative.
I’m voting for change...in the White House.
(Ha...look at site I just noticed:)
>>Republicans for Obama is a grassroots organization of proud party members who all share one important trait we are Americans first and Republicans second.
Founded in late 2006 as part of the nationwide effort to encourage then-Senator Obama to run for the Presidency, our volunteer-run, grassroots group now includes thousands of members from across the nation. Together, we represent a cross-section of the millions of Republican and conservative independents who support President Obama’s reelection in 2012.
Although we have campaigned, worked for, and voted Republican all our lives, we recognize that President Obama is the right leader for our country at this time. Our current Republican leadership is unable to stand up to the most extreme elements in our party, no matter the circumstance. Meanwhile, President Obama has challenged his own party on numerous issues, including taxes, healthcare and foreign policy. President Obama has forged a pragmatic, common-sense path forward during a challenging time.
Where I am I have to tell them no affiliation because there is an Independent party.
