With all due deference to Misha who writes:
I will hold my nose in November and vote for that stinking shyster Mittens if he’s the candidate, and I will hate myself for it forever more. I will never forgive myself. I will never try to excuse it. I will have betrayed my conservative principles by doing so, and there is no way around that, because it’s true.
and Teh Crunch-ster who writes:
So yes, I will vote for Mittens. And I won’t hold my nose while doing so, because after three years of watching my country be destroyed, I will gladly do anything to save her. Four more years of the radical America hating communists will kill her, and we will have allowed it to happen because we took our ball and went home.
Spoken like a true Marine, Crunch, but that doesn’t solve the problem. Heck, that only identifies one of the problems. And it entrenches the country-club republicans into a fortified position- not that the worms will be there long- they’ll screw that up, as well.
Since the TEA party handed the republicans the 2010 mid-term election on a silver platter, what, exactly, did the TEA party get in return? Leadership in the committees? Financial backing for elections? Promises of campaign appearances? HAH! They get nothing. Thankyouverymuch.
If you guys want to bend over and spread ‘em, at least get something for it. A reach around- something.
Before I even contemplate a vote for Willard, I want to know who torpedoed Herman Cain. If you will notice, his accusers vanished after he suspended his campaign. Don’t tell me Obama’s people did that to him, it’s got Karl Rove’s fingerprints all over it. That was an operation by republicans against one of their one.
Conservatives will never get to sit at the grown-up’s table if we keep electing RINO bitches. RINO’s allowed two Marxists on the Supreme Court- not that they could have done much, but they did nothing. It’s almost like they are colluding with these Marxists.
“Governor Romney has yet to provide tax returns from the period in which he made hundreds of millions as a corporate buyout specialist, or as governor of Massachusetts, the experience he says qualifies him to be president,” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said in a statement. “Mitt Romney’s defiance of decades of precedent set by presidential candidates on both sides of the aisle, including his own father, begs the question – what does he have to hide?”
If Willard can’t hit that beachball over the fence, he has no business in the race.
Ya think someone at the Romney campaign might suggest Obama release his college transcripts? Maybe Obama will release his passport files. Or maybe Obama will have the Hawaii Dept. of Health issue a statement claiming the birth certificate he posted is legitimate- unlike himself. But no, birther nonsense will get us nowhere. It’s almost as if everyone knows this maggot is an illegal alien, but are sworn to silence.
But seriously, since when did rules matter for either side of the aisle? We have “sanctuary cities” that refuse to deport illegals and the feds just look the other way. If the rules don’t matter, why have them?
By your own admission, Willard would only slow the pace of decline.
Republicans have done nothing to curb the ever increasing size of the federal government. They allowed out of control borrowing. They allowed the Dems to proceed without a budget.
Republicans say they support individuals freedom, but they narrow the field down to the candidate they decide. That’s not a choice.
When did I agree to this? At what point did I consciously decide that this government should be in the business of telling me what kind of Chinese light bulb to use? When did I decide to water down my vote by allowing illegal aliens to vote without a ID and demand workers show one when voting to install a union in a workplace? Why do I have to be a part of this farce?
No, I’ll have none of it.
Because of the location of my birth , I am required to be subject to the laws the current government deems to enforce? When did I agree to that? This government, and both parties, have broken their agreement with me by their failure to enforce the law equally. The ballot box is broken. The courts are broken. There’s only one box left.
“Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say ‘what should be the reward of such sacrifices?’ Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!”–Samuel Adams
Sooner or later Igor Panarin’s prediction will come to fruition.
Some of us seem tempted to let The Imposter win, just to spite Romney, while concentrating on holding the House and winning back the Senate. You really think? Sure we can repeal Obamacare once we have the Senate. Sure? Consider this.
If the False Dmitry is reelected, it will give him legitimation, and legitimize all his deeds of the previous four years. Today we can claim the American People did not know who and what they were voting for, but that excuse will be gone if he is reelected, whether by fair means or foul. In the view of the average voter, of the outside world, and of History.
Particularly in the view of History, since it is generally written by the victors. We who opposed The King of Clubs will be clubbed and silenced. All the negative evidence will be decisively suppressed and destroyed. His acolytes, like Axelrod, Fairey, Holder, Ayers, and others will see to that. Waverers and fence-sitters will get back with the program.
And repeal of Obozocare, or anything else? How likely are you to get the Congress, with its RINO faction, to agree to repealing the signature program of a president only just reelected? Even if you were to succeed, would not the legislation be vetoed by the incumbent? And if the veto were overridden? Why would not the reelected tyrant just refuse to recognize and obey that law? Just as he does now. He has already demonstrated his contempt for any law he does not like. Or any Court decision. What makes anyone think that a new Congress would take action when so many members have already submitted without murmur? A new Congress will be bold only with a new President.
Further, if The King of Clubs is reelected, there is even less chance he will step aside in 2016. Why should he? As just stated, he has already shown his disrespect and disregard for Law and Constitution. Why would he not repeal the XXII Amendment? Perhaps by administrative decree, as he has done with other matters – just to rub our noses in it. Or maybe he’ll just declare the whole old document obsolete, null and void, and establish himself as King (or Caliph?) Maybe he will continue the Roman Imperial tradition of preserving the hollowed out forms while ruling as autocrat. Would that make it any more palatable? It is a rule of history, Legitimation begets power; and power begets more power.
Perhaps the Supreme Court may save us? If the Imposter is returned for another four (or more) years, will not some of the older justices abandon hope of outlasting him and just retire? Or perhaps someone such as Thomas or Alito might have a sudden attack of Breitbart’s Disease.
As for Willdard Mitt. I do think it is a reasonable assumption that if he is able to take the White House, he will bring along control of both houses of Congress. And that should stiffen his back and point his note in the Right direction. It could also be a useful constitutional experiment. Back when our system was first set up the Founding Fathers intended that the chief authority and power should reside in the two houses of Congress. The President was to be only a chief executive officer of the will of our elected representatives. The President was to preside. That requires administrative ability, not necessarily leadership vision. In fact, the founders would have preferred to see “The Vision Thing” embodied in the greater of our private citizens. Mitt could be just the mediocrity they had in mind, and not some vainglorious Man of Destiny on his white horse.
I think he has a point. It’s on top of his head, but it’s a good point. It would be pretty hard to pull off a bluff on the RINO’s demanding such things as committee placement when everyone knows a Willard loss is the death knell.
That being said, somebody better come up with a plan. When you have the enemy on the run a tactician will tell you to pursue them “To the last gasp of man and beast”.
I want indictments.
