I was going to voat for Romney but not now.All on they're no more help from me.I'm finished with the rep & dems
OF COURSE the RINOs were going to try to hijack the convention. Even if they do get away with some stuff, they won't win. There is too strong a conservative base now and there are too many vocal and believable people speaking out.
Let us stick to our guns!!
So, am I to understand that Mitt Romney and his operatives are attempting to shut out the conservative base here? Cool. Don't expect me to show up and vote, Mitt. And, I won't.
This idiotic power grab is making me have second thoughts on Mitt Romney! This is a "hill to die on!" Kind of makes one wish a covert delegate mutiny would dump Romney and nominate a true conservative!
I'm sorry Carolyn Dixon, but Mickey Mouse is not running. I will vote for anyone except Obama and Romney will do just fine.
go right ahead and vote for the power hungry rino who will lose in november. I for one after he and his team have done this to get rid of conservatives and tea party supporters supporters will not pull the lever for him or obama. constitution party gets my vote.
I hate the RNC establishment exactly as much as I hate the DNC. They really ARE the same in their intentions of taking over the country and your money.
Here's the deal, for me: I have communicated my displeasure (via the "Levin Surge") over this issue. I also noted that I am an active Romney volunteer (because we MUST replace Obama) - and I'll vote for Romney, no question - but I will NOT volunteer for his campaign EVER again, nor will I make a donation to the campaign should this coup take place. Period. The conservatives are the MAJORITY of this party, and to shut us out, after forcing us to swallow Romney's nomination is the ULTIMATE middle-finger-showing.
Now, I'm no Nero.. I won't stand there and watch Rome burn. But the RNC isn't leaving us much choice, now are they??
We're sitting on a keg of powder, and there's Obama holding the match... And instead of rallying to not only blow out the match, but tackle the guy holding it, the RNC is handing him (and his progressive friends) kindling and lighter fluid.
Good God Almighty.
The drama queens who won't vote for Romney and are cheering on Obama? They're the RINOs and they're letting Rome burn. I have no sympathy for them, and neither does any other true conservative.
The damage by the Romney campaign has already been done. He showed his cards and what he truly represents and now he and his campaign are backpedaling. It may be politics as usual and maybe all politicians do it, but most of us are disgusted with this type of behavior.
I'm not sure yet but I'm seriously considering calling my wife's bluff and the RINOs bluff and just writing in Daffy Duck rather than go against my instincts and vote for Rinomney.
"Daffy Duck?" So, to prove you are pure, you are going to do something moronic and illogical? I Hope Daffy comes out on top. But, statistically speaking, write-ins don't tend to win. Although, when America gets downgraded a couple more times, and entitlements grow, I will remember that you were right.
Yep! The country is twice as dumb as it was in 1980 and its going to take eight years of Carter this time to get our Reagan in 2016. I know one thing for sure, we won't get a Reagan in 2016 if Romney is elected and most likely we get a Hillary win or worse. No thanks! I'm fighting to win the war and not betting the whole thing on the battle for Romney because in the long term it hinders not helps the conservative cause. My opinion I could be wrong.
AMerica survived civil war, FDR's socialist policies and 90% tax rate, Carter etc... and will survive Obama. Besides the world is going to end on Dec 21 this year....just ask the Mayans.
Obviously I don't trust progressive Romney with the RNC RINOs willing to please and appease their new President, you apparently do. Good for you.
We won't survive another Obama term. He wants to fundamentally remake America and he'll make America cease to exist. If it makes you feel better though, if Romney gets in and becomes really unpopular with both sides like Lyndon Johnson was after his first term, he might face a real primary challenge, decide it's not worth it and not run again.
Not quite, silly man. We just happen to disagree on how to get an actual conservative in the WH in 2016.
The best I can do for Romney is support his reelection in 2016 if he turns out to be the extreme conservative he claims to be, instead of the big government solutions can be run more efficiently pol he is. Call it "trust but verify" if you will. ;)
Rhetorically speaking the writing is on the wall people, don't be POed when Romney is lining conservatives up against the wall and people like me are STH saying we told you so.
Who on this site believes Romney is the conservative savior? You are preaching to the choir. Between Romney and Obama, Romney is clearly a better alternative.
Voting the lesser of two evils is exactly how this country got to this point in the first place. My conscious tells me Romney is wrong choice if I ever want to see an actual conservative in the WH.
No Other Gospel
6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!
...I think Paul just described Joseph Smith to a tee. But what ever, Romney's progressiveness coupled with a RINO controlled RNC willing to please is my problem with Mitt, not his religion.
If you follow God's word, you're take a devout Christian (Romney) over someone who's fanatically for killing babies and violating his laws (Obama).
It is too bad that Romney is corrupt or at the very least his employees are; Romney may just be ignorant. Either way, it doesn't look good. I cannot throw my support behind a candidate that endorses this type of behavior. It really does look bad. It looks like I'll have to vote 3rd party or not vote at all since the two party system is corrupt.
There's no deal on Rule 12. Until that's resolved, the whole premise of the Chronicle article is a distraction. Rule 12 allows them to change the rule any time they like. Worse, by continuing to run with this Chronicle "deal" story, people are fueling the misinfo.
Romney knows he's got conservative and Tea Party votes, no matter what. There is no need for him to pretend to be conservative anymore.
he doesn't have all of us yet. if this rule change happens he will lose millions of us and he will be sitting home wondering what he did to lose the race.
This guy is bad news. I've always despised him. He dismissed Reagan, implemented Obamacare, small scale, and will not repeal the Affordable Care Act. Although we are screwed, he will extend the Bush tax cuts and be unquestionably better than Obama on the economy. Beyond that, Obama and Romney are brothers from different mothers.
Seems Mr Romney is just like BushObama and wants all the power in his hands.
So glad I decided not to defend RINOs.
We get it. You are clairvoyant and omnipotent. Instead of getting on every thread and repeating yourself, just sum it up here, so we don't have to hear it anymore. We all know Romney is a liberal. He's what we got. If you are so smart, try and understand that Romney is less dangerous to the economy than Obama. We aren't supporting him because he's the messiah. We are supporting him because he's less destructive than Obama. That's it!
The economy? I'm not as worried as you are because I understand its the uncertainty of O-care causing much of the problem with employment. No matter who wins there will finally be certainty on O-Care and the hiring will commence. Personally I don't believe the GOPe is capable of repealing it because it would require them to use the Dems tactics against them and RINOs don't have Nancy Pelosi's balls. They're more the spinless jellyfish types.
Romney cannot beat Obama. He has been on the same side as Obama on many issues. Hope all of you are satisfied what you have done.
I've been saying this and saying this and now here we are. Don't accept this is a done deal! They are pushing conservatives out of the party. Someone who does this doesn't get my vote. The primaries were rigged from the very beginning and the real candidate that can fix this country, Newt Gingrich, was pushed out.
I hope all of you Romney fans love your candidate because he's nothing but a crook who wants power. I no longer belong to this party.
There's a new update. Take a look at Michelle Malkin's article:
Rule 12 is still in play. It MUST be stricken. It's a power grab that would allow the RNC to make executive convention rule changes and rewrite the rules between conventions without any input/consultation with grassroots, delegates, or state leadership on hand...which of course negates any victory from the so-called compromise since the RNC can just change it on its own later on back to whatever it wants.
Information at both those links on contacting State Rules Committee members. Call/email them and urge them to oppose Rule 12!
Please everyone...call RNC Chairman's office:
Didn't Prebus go on Levin's Show last week and a lovefest insued? It's the RINO infiltration of Republican Party and DoorMitt is an example of that.
If Flip Robme is elected and essentially continues business as usual, doing little to undo what Obummer has done, and fails to take a buzz saw to federal spending and regulations, we will face another credit crisis that will dwarf 2008. Whoever is in the White House at that time, their party will be shellacked in the 2014 midterms.
What's worse: Obummer remaining in office another four years, with a veto-proof Republican majority in both houses of Congress elected as a result in 2014; or, electing Mittwitt and watching Nancy Pelousy reclaiming the Speaker's gavel in the House in Jan. 2015?
I concur, Romney and the GOPe lead by Boehner and McConnell is replay of Bush years where congress rubber stamps their President. No thanks! Heard that tune before and they doubled the debt, expanded the size and scope of government, expanded entitlements and didn't fund it etc.... Romney will get us Hillary in 2016 and possibly as you pointed out with a Dem controlled congress.
How do you possibly think there will be a veto-proof Republican majority in both houses of Congress if Obama wins? I cannot envision any scenario where that would happen. All of the libertarians/conservatives/Paulbots/etc. etc. etc. posting on this page that are pissed at Romney and the GOP are not going to vote for Romney but are going to vote for GOP REPS & SENATORS???? Besides, I don't think there are enough senators up for re-election in this one cycle to turn the tide all the way to a veto-proof majority. With the mess Akin created, a 51-49 majority is in jeopardy.
