Romney and Co, hate the Right with a passion.
Why would we “work with him to defeat Obama”?
Why would he even expect conservatives to help him defeat the left, when leftwing Rinos have actively worked WITH Dems to defeat us?
We don’t want a leftwing government, why would we vote for leftwing Romney?????
I'm arguing that we turn that around on them: not only do we not HAVE TO vote for Romney, we don't even have to grudgingly support him.
Only, instead of doing it automatically, why don't we extract bargaining power from the *threat* of doing it?
And boomerang the RINOs "Hobson's choice" threat to conservatives, RIGHT BACK AT THEM?
As I wrote,
We dont have to vote against our principles, certainly, but a little arm-twisting would certainly be in order.
Why would we work with him to defeat Obama?
Romney doubtless has contempt for movement conservatives, but he doesn't want to put them in re-education camps and lay waste to the country, as some of Obaama's cohorts apparently do.
They just want us to be stuck in middle-class jobs without opportunity for advancement.
Which is infinitely preferable to "a boot stomping on a human face forever."
(But not as good as a Newt/Palin ticket.../brokered convention> .)
My first thought was:
Because the man sitting the the White House is evil incarnate. If Bill Clinton was president I might be inclined to set this one out. But even though Mittens is the worst candidate in the history of the GOP I am still going to have to vote for him - and then go home and vomit.
But on second thought - if he doesn't pick a real conservative as VP I might very well stay home.
People over time get the government they deserve. This is what happens when the majority of the population bases their decision on what they see in a couple of TV ads and nothing else.
God save the republic.
