With in the Tea Party Nation, there is a huge divide. There are a few people who love Mitt Romney. They are very few. There are most who are willing to tolerate him and then there are those who say they will not vote for him under any circumstances.
Must we support Romney and make certain he wins?
Unfortunately we must.
For those who believe I have had a sudden conversion and am now a member of the Mitt Romney fan club, you may put such suspicion to rest. I suspect my chances of joining the Mitt Romney fan club are slightly less than the chances of Obama becoming a Constitutional Conservative or releasing his records.
Unfortunately we have seen what Obama does as President. From releasing classified information to our enemies to pandering to any group that will help him raise money and get reelected, Obama will do it.
The release of classified information is not new. Early in the days of the Obama Regime, the Regime released information on our interrogation techniques so Al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups could better prepare their soldiers and he released our exact number of nuclear warheads. Until then, that was one of our closest held secrets.
Obama has expressed a desire to unilaterally disarm America.
In fact, he has repeatedly expressed the desire to simply bypass Congress and the Constitution and simply do what he wants to do.
His cries of “We can’t wait,” are the cries of a man who wants to be dictator. He wants to ignore Congress, elections, the will of the people and 235 years of freedom so he can act as he wants.
He decided the Defense Of Marriage Act was unconstitutional so he, not the Supreme Court or Congress decided that it had to go. He decided that he did not like the deportation of young illegal aliens so he, instead of Congress, decreed that would not happen.
What does anyone believe will happen if Obama has a second term?
He will not be subject to another election. He already hinted to Dmitri Medvedyev that he would be able to give the Russians what they wanted in arms negotiation treaties after the election.
What else will he do?
What other laws will he decide he does not like and simply not enforce? What about things like the First Amendment?
For conservatives, for real Americans, this is not even an issue that requires a moment of thought.
Romney has never been my candidate. Gingrich was. Other people wanted Cain, Bachmann or Perry. They all lost.
Even if Romney is as bad as he was in Massachusetts, he will be an improvement over Obama.
There are simply no circumstances under which a second Obama term is acceptable. The nation will not survive it.
For those who say, they will not vote for Romney, you are voting for Obama. I don’t like it but it is the truth.
I have said this before and I will say it again. On Election Day, I will go to the voting booth with a large and cold bottle of Pepto-Bismol and a stomach distress bag. I will push the button for Romney and pray I do not leave the rancid dregs of what was once my breakfast on the voting machine, but I will vote for Romney.
The hope for conservatism lies in Congress, which is what our founding fathers intended.
No matter what, we cannot have a second Obama term. I don’t care how bad it is, we must all vote for Romney this fall.
As Perry, Gingrich and others have said in their endorsements of him, he isn’t Obama.
Thank you Ron, just keep saying this until those who'd rather not vote would come to understand this concept.
I get the impression that those who are so anti Romney, at this late stage, think we're against America. That's not the case.
We realize that at this juncture this is the way to go. Wait out the one term with Romney and strengthen our cause to be able to vote a conservative legislature and executive into office. But we can't do the same with this administration.
Agi, some of the highly vocal Anti-Romney posters also allude to a delegate revolt in Tampa, as hinted at in this recent "Important National Convention News" release. There's far more on his support websites, but I refer you only to the "Horses Mouth" as a reference source.
I trust I have the right end of the horse?
As you say, we should understand, that we must get Obama Out, before we can do anything constructive.
We are "Under Seige by the Fraternity of 545 in Washington, DC, Inc.".
We have been "running in circles trying to "Figure out the Right Side" ! Well, the "Only Right Side that I know is My Lord & Savior Jesus The Christ".
There is "No Truth from The Mouth of Man" ! All are trying to conquer the other and "Love has died within the stuggle to Survive" !
I hope & Pray that God does not "Allow Us to Get What we deserve" !
Everyone Knows the Law about using "Federal Troops" within the United States. Now, this is a matter for the 50 Governors of the United States. They need complete control of their "State Troops". Furthermore, when they believe there is a threat that might overrun State, County & City Police, they need to use their State Troops.
This thing that George W did after Katrina by "Taking the 50 National Guards away from the State Governors was "Protested by Every State Governor (50) in the USA (in writing) to President, Secretary of Defense and both Houses of Congress. It was my understanding that this "Action was recinded some 18 months after implemented in The Homeland Security Act.
George W. did not like Governor Landreau telling him "Hell No you can't take control of the few Louisiana National Guard his time of Emergency because most of the Louisiana Guard are in Iraq Q". The Governors reminded Bush and the Congress that in 200 years...No President had ever dome anything that "Unconstitutional in The USA". George W was about as Arrogant & Narcissistic as this POTUS we have now !
We simply cannot allow "The Federal Government to Amass Troops Sufficient to overpower our 50 Sovereign States. The Founders spoke extensively concerning this type of action in The Federalist Papers. I do not care if it is Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or Independent that "Violates The Constitution"...the Full Measure of The Rule of Law should be taken, when they do. Who Enforces The Law, when the "Legal Authorities" break The Law??
Our Freedom Depends on "Us All Abiding by The Letter and Intent of The Law" !
He does not have to get the nomination - but if he does he must win the election. Those of you who are for Ron Paul must vote in a way that will ensure Obama is not back in office - bringing the country back to constitutional values will not have a chance if he is re-elected. Please do not be fools
Admittedly, Ron Paul wishes to "flip" delegates elected to support Romney. This was linked in a reply only an hour ago. Ron Paul proposes dishonesty among the elected Convention Delegates, Do you as well support such dishonesty? I would hope that all here are both conservative and honest....
