A Mitt Romney loss wouldn’t necessarily be a disaster
The Daily Caller ^ | August 3, 2012 | Matt K. Lewis

Posted on 08/03/2012 1:26:47 PM PDT by Bratch

Don’t buy the doom and gloom pronouncements from conservatives telling you, “this is the most important election in history.” A loss for Mitt Romney would not necessarily spell long lasting disaster for Republicans, nor would it be the death-knell to conservatism. In fact, it’s possible a 2012 loss could lay the groundwork for a stronger Republican party and conservative movement.

Elections are almost always seen as urgent and morally imperative. But sometimes major victories can only come in the aftermath of what appear to be devastating defeats. John Kerry‘s loss in 2004 laid the groundwork for a Democratic takeover in 2006 and 2008, and Jimmy Carter‘s defeat of Gerald Ford in 1976 paved the way for the Ronald Reagan in 1980. In other words, it is a mistake to assume losing a presidential election is a permanent defeat.

“This should be the most important election since 1980, but so far it is not,” says Reagan biographer Craig Shirley. “Scottish historian Thomas Carlyle postulated the ‘great man’ theory of history, and indeed this was true with Washington, Jackson, Lincoln, TR, FDR and Reagan. But history has not summoned forth great men in 2012 and in fact our history today is small.”

This is not to say Republicans should concede the election, but conservatives should keep November in proper perspective.

Why are you only interested in bating people instead of having an intelligent conversation?

JimRob has stated his beliefs and has drawn the line for his home, Free Republic. I respect that.

In case you haven't noticed, he has allowed those of us who disagree to continue to post and comment.

I am not trying to browbeat people to agree with me. I am stating what I intend to do and give an explanation for it.

After the first four years of Obama your statement makes me wonder how bad it would actually have to get for you to be concerned and perhaps compromise your sacred “principles”.
***Why do you put the word “principles” in quotes? Is it to denigrate such principles? Why do you even wonder what it would take to compromise such principles? There are dozens of non-conservatives actively campaigning on this conservative website to separate conservatives from their conservative principles & vote for a librul. That is not conservative. So go and convert some 0bots into mittbots. We can all agree that such a thing is the proper course of action. Free Republic is not a republican website; it is a conservative website. So, start acting conservative.

Upon reflection, I find it interesting that you want to see what it would take to get me to compromise my principles. I think we know what it took to make you give up on yours.

I almost died on the side of a mountain during a blizzard, bleeding out internally. Family was called because I had already coded a couple of times.

I fear no evil. God is with me. I will do what is right, and leave the results to Him.

I know what Romney’s record is. I’ve also experienced the first four years of Obama, the guy who thinks infanticide is a-ok.

Obama wins, it’s on your head and the head of others with your same mindset. Unfortunately, we’ll all reap the whirlwind...

I think it is a mistake to think re-electing Pres. Obama will not have dire consequences for the country, but I also share some of your concerns that a Romney Presidency could potentially do a tremendous amount of harm to the long-term cause of conservatism.

In the end, I have come to the conclusion that more harm is done by not voting for Romney, so I will cast my ballot for him in November. I’m not going to pick fights with those who decide otherwise though.

No fear-mongering here, FRiend; I just believe that Obama is intent on the radical transformation and destruction of the United States as founded. Yes, it's been said every election before, but we've never had a president like Barack Hussein Obama before. His first term has been every bit the government-power-expanding freedom-destroying disaster I expected, and then some. But a second term? What we have now pales in comparison to what's to come, if history is our judge.

S'ok. I've got thick skin, and respect your right to vote your principles as you see fit.

As I'll vote mine.

The GOP-E is the source of your frustration, not the people that won't go along to get along.

I would respectfully suggest that you vent to them, and not to conservatives that will die before supporting abortion enablers, gun grabbers, and other assorted side winding, bushwhacking, cracker croakers.

Dear APatientMan,

"Your way of thinking isn’t working. If it is, how did we get to Unlikely, Even more, Additional and Permanently?"

That's a bit of a non sequitur, but I'll go with it.

I don't expect much from President Romney, should we be so fortunate to avoid another term of the anti-Christ.

But I expect that he will roll back DeathCare, that he'll keep the Bush tax cuts, that he'll reduce the federal budget - slowly - back to roughly 20% of GDP, and that although his picks for the Court may be as poor as John Roberts, they won't be to the left of Ginsburg or Sotomayor.

Our problems are cultural, not really political. We've embraced sin. Electing folks like Romney (or even Ronald Reagan, himself) isn't going to save the day. It only delays what will be inevitable if we don't recapture our culture, if we don't turn away from death and darkness. But a Romney presidency will delay our ruin and provide more time for cultural renewal.

A second term for the anti-Christ will foreclose that possibility and we will enter a long and dark night. It is possible that even then, we may someday recover our culture, our country and our freedom. Not in my lifetime, but perhaps in the lifetimes of my grandchildren. Or maybe not at all.

I'd rather fight while there is still light.

That’s a false dichotomy, and you know it. I will have more choices than that.

I detest Obama but Romney is not a conservative solution. Given the two, Romney isn’t a Communist, but that’s not enough to make me vote for him.

If they were the last two candidates on earth, of course I’d vote to remove Obama. Thankfully, they aren’t the last two candidates on earth, so I’ll find a conservative for President and vote straight conservative all over my ballot.

I answered your question, so now please do me the favor of answering this one: how will Romney’s election advance the cause of this website, which is grass-roots conservatism?

Baloney.

Romney is the furthest thing from a conservative.

He’s not a conservative. He’s never been a conservative.

His only hope of conservatism, is a whole-lot endorsement of someone like Sarah Palin, or as good.

I half expect him to make that compromise, to actually select a Palin as a running mate.

If he does not, my vote ends November 7th. But until the votes are counted.

Romney is my guy.

K. Let me 'splain. I intend to vote the entire ticket, top to bottom, for the most conservative candidate on the ticket. Period. If they support abortion, gun control, socialized medicine, or big government, I'm not voting for them.

I hope that clarifies my position.

I'm also looking to run some GOP-E types off the political stage, and leave them, hat in hand, wondering what exactly happened.

I’m not saying Romney is a conservative. He is a moderate at best.

My concern is that he will not govern as a conservative. He won’t institute the major reforms that are badly needed and that the country won’t improve much as a result.

The fact that Romney isn’t a conservative won’t stop the media from blaming all the country’s problems on the Tea Party though. It could set back the cause of conservatism tremendously.

Still, in spite of this risk, I think the risk of a second Obama term is even greater. That is why I will vote for Romney despite my reservations.

See that is the thing.

If Palin is VP I can see the risk of ‘blaming’ the tea party. Despite the fact the administration will have in it’s central slot - the most stand forward Tea Party around.

If Palin is VP I can see the risk, and I’ll (happily) take it.

If however Mitt goes for someone weak and gullible, I’ll hike the day after voting for him, and we’ll all move on starting from day one.

DAY ONE.

But first. Before that. We un-elect Obama.

THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE FACING AMERICA RIGHT NOW.

Everything else must wait.

November 7th, all bets are off, if Palin isn’t VP.

:D

They already do. Embrace the blame and kick it back to them. The old media is losing badly. Newsweak is going to stop printing dead tree editions, and will be another web blog. Which old media outlet listed millions in losses today?

Don't be afraid. Do what is right, trust to God for the results. Lots of lessons in the Cruz victory. GOP-E took a 14 point smackdown, with the help of principled conservatives, and by the Grace of God.

Vote your principles, but don't be in fear.

It all hinges on who Romney selects as his VP.

I’ve chosen. I’ll vote for Romney. And I’ll support Palin.

Two reasons this is wrong.

1) Once Obamacare goes into effect, it will never be fully repealed. No government program ever does. Future debates will be over how to reform it so it "works better", not over getting rid of it (see Social Security and Medicare).

2) There are at least four Supreme Court justices over 70 years old, including Scalia, Thomas, Ginsburg and Kennedy. While I have no guarantee Romney would pick true conservatives, I have an ironclad guarantee that Obama would pick true left-wing progressives (see Kagan and Sotomayor).

In other words, Romney may not be the conservative president we have been wanting, but he is not a European Socialist. And anyone who says there is no difference between Romney and Obama is fooling themselves.

Regular as clockwork.

I've got friends here that are going to vote for Romney because he's got an (R) or because they are scared.

I don't propose we zot them. Maybe they will, eventually, get some courage of conviction. Some that pushed for McLame are pissed off and now not voting for Romney.

Things get better, if you hold the line and the faith.

Not everyone that disagrees with us needs to be nuked. Unless they are politicians.
