Attention "Anyone But Obama" (ABO) FReepers! If you go to the thread at the link you will will see that JimRob has "declared a truce" and hundreds of ABO FReepers are now vigorously defending their belief, which I share, that the ineligible Marxist Manchurian MUST BE DEFEATED to preserve the Republic...without fear of "the ZOT"! Please consider a DONATION not just to fund renewal of expression and amplification of your ABO views, but let's over-achieve this FReepathon to get JR his new equipment!
IMO, Free Republic and FReepers could be vital in swing states in rallying just enough conservatives to tip the election and prevent our troops from having to salute for even one day longer than necessary an ineligible Marxist committed to destroying the USA !
Since Oprahism now seems to be the majority religion here now; it kinda explains the shape we are in.
Sure it isn't that you don't want others to know what you think?
You have been uncharitable. Not always, but sometimes.
I also asked for the thing thought to be wrong shown.
I'm still waiting.
Cut him a little slack. In what area?
And NEVER make me defend Romney again please,
I've never MADE you do anything you didn't want to do.
Then do me the courtesy of allowing me to face these charges against me.
Show the evidence of what you've discovered.
Do I not have the right to defend myself?
I’m sure there’s a point here, Elsie, but I’m not sure what it is. :-)
You really think that we're going to be impressed by the likes of citizen-voters who gave us...
He vetoed eight portions of the health care bill...
Yes, Sections 5, 27, 29, 47, 112, 113, 134 & 137.
...and every one was overridden.
You know, that's like a Senator -- knowing his vote would not make a difference in defeating legislation that puts taxpayers on the hook for paying to dismember infants -- trying to remain somehow "neutral" by abstaining from the vote.
In fact, to Mormons -- this scenario of neutrality is horrific re: the common Mormon narrative that blacks were supposed "neutral spirits" who didn't side either way when Satan & his demons rebelled vs. God in heaven...Hence, the Mormon narrative has gone, that God supposedly "cursed" these spirits with black skin when their spirits were sent to inhabit bodies on earth.
Mormons have for generations called this a definitive lack of commitment one way or the other a lack of "valiance" -- and "cursable" by God. So...Mitt Romney's own Mormon narrative from his spiritual fathers' past condemns him.
MA was going to get government health care regardless of who was governor.
Well, you know, Biblically, we're Not necessarily responsible for the sin of others...had Romney chosen that route in this matter -- (which he did not)
...but we certainly know that when we participate in the sins of others -- there's no absolving that: Mitt Romney's Bible tells him: ...do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure. (1 Tim. 5:22)
Well, what prominent section dealing with Planned Parenthood as part of the "payment policy advisory board" did Romney choose NOT to veto? (Section 3) That section mandates that one member of MassHealth Payment Policy Board must be appointed by Planned Parenthood League of MA. (See chapter 58 of the Acts of 2006, section 3 for details).
Well...given Romney's ties with Planned Parenthood, no real surprise there, right? (a) Attended PP fundraiser in '94; (b) Ann Romney gave donation to PP in '94; (c) Mitt asked to fill out the PP voters guide in '02.
For all this arguing over the abortion funding in Romneycare, the net effect was no more abortions than prior years, and in fact, a reduction in abortions in the following years. That is a national trend...
Yes...a national trend...
...but if Romneycare encouraged abortion to the extent you claim, there should have been a dramatic increase.
You know if you had a drug cartel which gave out free dope in your neighborhood -- but for some reason didn't increase the # of addicts -- that latter factoid is suppose to somehow lessen the way we feel about that??? (In this analogy, Romney IS the drug cartel leader...and believe me, aborting our young with taxpayer $ is worse than free drugs for our young...at least our young can both say "no" or potentially bounce back from such usage).
On a personal note....digging through all this is disgusting. Nothing is more Godless and wrong than on demand abortions. I'm surprised God hasn't zotted MA.
Politics isn't for the faint of heart.... I pray Romney was just warming up in the primaries. Maybe he will pick Newt for VP and unleash him as the attack dog. (A fellow is allowed to dream, isn't he?)
And I will be able to sleep well that night.
I'll sleep better when Obama is political history. How that happens isn't going to trouble me at all.
"We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that 'except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it.' I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel."
Benjamin Franklin, statement he made at the Constitutional Convention June 28, 1787
Now, I've said my piece on this matter, and shown to others that there are two sides to this story....not just your hyped distortion.
Its up to them to make up their own minds.
I think you will find that Romney might have been better at kicking the arses of his primary opponents than he will be at doing same to Obama. But that remains to be seen. Talk is cheap.
Like a typical bully, I would guess that he excels at crushing those who are better people than him but will drop the ball and retreat when confronted with true evil..
The GOP-E is Mittens homeboy..and when have they EVER fought fire with fire and stood up for first principles? For them, it’s all about power, money and control...not exactly Constitutional values.
Just my opinion.
And yes, Newt has the fire in his belly and coulda leveled BO in a debate..
But he ran a bad campaign, let alot o’people down and all but endorsed Mittens last week.
The presidency isn’t everything.
We still live under a system of checks and balances.
Help keep Congress and work to take the Senate back.
Support true conservative candidates.
Work to elect local conservatives to school boards, county boards and other elective offices in your area.
Sounds like you are putting all your hopes in basket Romney to get rid of Obama and save the country.
It’s up to us to take the baton and reclaim our freedoms.
Having expectations that a person(or in this case, organization: the GOP)will rescue us and clean up the mess that we have created for ourselves..will inevitably lead to disappointment and probable defeat.
I’m with you brother!
Thanks for creating a home were we can debate social, Government and religious issues.
Obviously there are many subjects we cover here but it is a safe place to argue, exchange ideas or organize.
And I appreciate an environment were we can be Christians without persecution.
Given all of that, if Mit Romney had CONVERTED to Mormonism at age 40 because he claimed the theology appealed to him, THAT would in fact bother me. People being Mormons because they were raised as Mormons will start bothering me when I start seeing Mormons flying airplanes into buildings.
Well, I happen to also be a believer in God, so count me in. Thanks for your considerate reply.

How big the infiltrating army might be, I have no idea. I did not know about it being a topic for duscussion at the DailyKos, as I never go there. But I'm not surprised to hear that the effort has been organized.”
That is the voice of wisdom.
Some of the things being said by other people on this thread do not rise to that level.
I'm going to say more once I have re-read all 1,100-plus posts. I'm seriously concerned by some of what I'm seeing but want to think twice, and possibly more, before I write things I will later regret.
“I admit that I was a monthly that cancelled. I just donated.”
Thank you very much!
