*Update 2.0*How many of you in here pledge to Never back Romney? *UPDATE 2.0*

Just curious as to how many patriots here plan to stand with us against the idiotic "ABO" (Anyone But Obama) the Obsolete GOP have been screaming at us to follow.

While we have a great chance of winning the nomination still, I plan to write Dr. Paul's name in if he doesn't get the nomination.

One thing is absolutely certain... Romney and the GOP will NEVER get my vote!

How many of you feel the same way?

Ron Paul Supporters Will NOT Vote for Mitt Romney

*Update 2.0*

Lately, we have seen many Romney operatives on this site and on the internet trying to sabotage our movement by attempting to guilt or pressure you into voting for the disgrace that is Romney/Ryan.

I think most of us in here know that Romney and Obama are essentially the same candidate with Marginal differences between them. The unfortunate reality is that one of these two horrible people is going to win the Presidency.

While there has been much debate on this site and throughout the Liberty movement about whether to write in Ron Paul or vote Gary Johnson, I think we can all agree that a Romney win would be a devastating blow for Freedom and Liberty in this country. Romney is an inherently evil and vile person who only lusts for war and control of every aspect of your life.

The simple fact is while I can never advocate voting for Obama, as I think you should vote for who you believe best represents you as an American, and I believe he does not represent me, I believe we should all stand together against Romney. At the very minimum at least 4 years of Obama with a GOP controlled congress, would be better than 8 potential years of Romney completely unchecked and prepared to reign terror and fascism in this country.

So whether you chose to vote for Johnson or write in Ron Paul, just make sure you tell everyone you know of the threat that a Romney win poses to this country and stay involved. The next 4 years are going to be difficult but if we continue to work together we vote in Liberty Movement candidates at the state and local level and have a chance at a Liberty Movement President in 4 2016.

So I ask all of you will you fold to the pressure of the Neocon/Romney machine or will you stand with the rest of the patriots in this movement against the American terror that is Romney/Ryan.

*Update*

Romney/Ryan and the GOP have proven by their actions this entire election and especially at the RNC, that they neither want nor deserve our support or our Vote.

Ryan and Romney are a disgrace and an embarrassment to this country and everything it was built on.

I pledge to not only never vote or support Romney, but I pledge to convince everyone I know that a vote for Romney is a vote for Corruption, Fraud, hatred of our constitution and personal freedoms.

Frankly a vote for Romney is a slap in the face of everyone in this movement who worked their butts off to become a delegate only to get shafted! It's a slap in the face of the Vets for Ron Paul and anyone who served this country to protect our freedoms! It's a slap in the face of everyone who phone banked or donated to the movement, and you should be embarrassed and ashamed of yourself if you even contemplate voting for the disgrace that is Romney/Ryan.

I will encourage everyone I know to either write in Ron Paul or Vote for any third party.

You have a choice this November... The President of the United States is supposed to be a representation of you as an American and someone you can respect as a leader and should reflect your views. Anyone who votes or supports Romney is saying that their personal views are essentially lies, corruption, violence and the antithesis of everything this country was built on.

This is the most upvoted thread in the history of the DP and I am proud to stand with every patriot in here who has made this pledge.

Do not fold, We Are the Future of This Country. Step one is to remove every single NEO-CON from any position of influence.

I had the following FB exchange with a relative

Me, quoting another: "Pragmatic voting always results in a downward trend in the quality of candidates. Politicians won't change if they know we'll vote for them anyway. Good candidates seldom receive the support they need to become viable. The problem of bad choices is thereby perpetuated, and the nation continues to deteriorate until the day when our choices will be an Adolf Hitler or a Joseph Stalin."

Relative: Jeff, you are correct, but we already have a Stalin in office and this November we have the choice to either elevate Obama to full blown Dictator or support the candidate that has the best chance of removing him from office. This election is about saving the very Republic; we can worry about voting our conscience and restoring the Constitution after the Obama crisis is over.

Me: That strikes me as the exact same line of reasoning that is used every time: "I'd vote for A if I thought he could win, but I'm going to vote for C because if B wins, [terrible consequence du jour] is going to happen for sure, and we can't have THAT. I'll vote for A next time." And then next time, A still loses out because now there is the even more monstrous D to contend with. This continues without fail because nobody will vote for A. The threatened consequence of B winning and A losing is always big enough and imminent enough to make people vote for Not-Quite-As-Bad-As-B instead out of fear.

"I'll vote conscientiously once the stakes aren't so high" seems like a terribly unprincipled cop-out. I'm sure they don't see it in those clear terms the way I do, but still...sigh.

Circular reasoning

is a bitch. I thought about quoting you to my father, but I realized it won't do any good. He's stuck in the same mentality - keeps telling me I have my head buried in the sand. He's project engineer for a very large company that builds huge balers, plenty intelligent , but he's on auto-pilot with the rationalizations. It's amazing how hard it is to undo a good brainwashing. Regardless, once you hear the truth, it lights a fire inside you that will not die. I will not bend, I will not compromise, I will put Ron Paul stickers on everything I own and the people that don't like it can just suck it. I am a grown man of 43 and I will not be socially blackmailed by anyone including family. Standing up for what you believe in ain't always easy - but it's always worth it. What is that quote about universal truths?

I will not vote for anone who does not go strictly by the

Constitution. And I don't just mean president. No way will I vote for Obama or Romney. I consider a vote for them to be a traitoris act. No way.

Nope, I won't vote for him

The only GOP candidate I will vote for in Texas besides Ron Paul is Glen Addison for senate. He is the only one that thinks like and backs Dr. Paul.

That's Easy: I WILL NEVER VOTE for Romney or ANY TRAITORS!!!!

It's Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul, or NO ONE AT ALL. PERIOD. END of STORY!

The Republic is on her last leg; without PRESIDENT Paul, it would be AS IF, if not WORSE (oBUSHma's 2nd term, he will be even more tyrannical) than having not voted at all anyway.

At current FED. Reserve's trajectory, with Bank of International Settlement's own aggregate number of global derivatives exposure rated up to $1.5 QUADRILLION (that's a THOUSAND TRILLION!), with Bernanke and oBUSHma STEALING over 24.7 TRILLION dollars in less than 3months for their NWO Wall St. Bankster overlords in 2008, there is ABSOLUTELY ZERO chance of saving their utterly corporatist fraudulent fiat monetary banking system.

Absolutely ZERO. It is absolutely mathematically impossible to prevent a coming currency collapse. Even with Dr. Paul, the only difference would be be that we will have a captain who can guide the sinking ship through the channel onto a slightly shallower waters, as to slow the bottoming out with just enough water underneath to navigate out once the bulkheads were patched up and lead it back to dry dock to strip it apart, and build a completely new hull design, and disembark again, a year or two later.

Without Dr. Paul, the collapse will be swift, hellish, and painful.

But at this point, it's a damn near certainty, as tyrants are NEVER known to stop themselves, FROM themselves.

It's a slo-mo crash in HD.

So the choice is clear. It's Dr. Paul, or NO ONE AT ALL!!!

Will be writing him in, if he's not the nominee. There won't be any 'wasted vote' as voting for UnConstitutional Traitorous 'lesser of two evils' WOULD BE the REAL "Wasted Vote."

Vote your conscience. Period. I have no qualms about voting for or writing in Dr. Paul.

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Voting for Romney is a failure of faith

You know in your heart that there's no qualitative difference between any of the top power players in Washington. You know in your heart the hair's difference between Romney and Obama is merely which script they'll read from as they enslave us. The goal is the same, to extinguish the American spirit, to void the Founding Fathers' great experiment.

Obama can't hurt me; he can't touch me. Because I've got faith in liberty the way I have faith in God.

Selling your soul isn't a pragmatic choice of 'lesser evil', it is what it is: choosing evil instead of choosing good. Selling your soul.

Ron Paul period. That is my pledge.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

I've been saying this for far too long now...

Voting for "Anybody but Obama" is the 2012 ignorant equivalent of voting for "Hope & Change" in 2008.

I think the correct simple 'Formula' (if you will) is to stick to researching records, policies/ideas, and the Constitution for any candidate. This works on any level for people that we seek to vote for. Do they truly seek to take their oath of office to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution seriously? If not, they aren't even worth considering voting for.

In a way, I see the Constitution sort of like an Employee Manual for any elected American office.
Why would any employer hire someone up front that had a conflict of interest in the interview against their employee handbook/manual? Why would any employer seek to keep a person that broke several guidelines in the employee manual after getting the job?

WE THE PEOPLE ARE THE EMPLOYER, and our 'Employee Manual' is the Constitution. Anyone that does not take it seriously SHOULD NOT BE HIRED.

And there stands alone in this election cycle... the Champion of the Constitution. Let's Hire Ron Paul!

How could anyone look at

How could anyone look at themselves in the mirror after they voted for romney knowing what a lier he is and knowing he voted against the 2nd ammendment.Anybody who knows how to add and subtract knows romney does not have a chance without our support so he has no chance at all. A vote for romney is a wasted vote.

but they can't count us

They're trying so hard not to see us and I think Fox assures them we're just a couple busloads of old deadheads following the Dr around. Still can never get a response when I remind them who won the last two CPAC straw polls.

Romney!

Romney can go to hell with his father the devil!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

I don't like to say never

But at this stage in my life, I see no substantial reason to vote for Romney. Last time I voted for Chuck Baldwin. If Romney gets the nomination, he could try to get the presidency without my help.

"Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." -- Thomas Paine

Only if Ron Paul is on the ticket with him

would I consider voting for Romney and since I don't see that happening I might as well go ahead and say NO WAY!

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

No No

Mitt would be a lousy veep and I do not believe for a millisecond that Dr Paul would accept being Romney's veep. In It To Win It and look around failure is not an option. I've had Mitt people ask me if I'd vote for that, told em no one would and that it would never happen anyway.

I pledge. Enough of the

I pledge. Enough of the insanity, Ron Paul or Bust!

Can't vote for Romney...

Just can't. So yes, I pledge!

Why would I vote for

- Bailouts?
- Wars?
- Fascist "health care"?
- A continuation of the idea that government owns me like livestock, using the SKU they assigned to my LEGAL NAME in an attempt to track my every move through life?

Etc.

FORGET IT.

I'm with you

I didn't vote for McCain 4 years ago, won't vote for Romney this time.

I Haven't Voted for a Statist In my Life

And I'm 57 years old!

Usually, I vote for the Libertarian. I can't tell you how much better I feel knowing I did every thing I could to stop the lemmings.

Writing in Ron Paul

Writing in Ron Paul.

Living Not Surviving


-IN PURSUIT OF LIBERTY-

Paul or nothing. There is no one else.

I wrote his name in 4 years ago.

The two establishment parties have elites pick their candidates. We, the people, have awoken and picked our candidate who best represents the people.

We need to get some debates. Three 90 minute ones would be great. Let the public hear our man explain things in detail. He does not need a teleprompter and has a record that is not flip flopping.

This election is about the economy - If our economy gets worse in the next few months more people will want to hear about some real plans for real changes. Every round of QE has pushed food prices higher as well as oil & gas. Keynesian economics only works so long. Its a bubble and when it pops its bad news - for everyone except the elites. We are possibly on the doorstep of QE III :-(

I'll never vote for Obomney

I will NEVER EVER

vote for Romney or Obama. Ron Paul is my one and only choice.

Cannot vote Romney in any circumstance.

Can you imagine the explosion of financial cronies that would descend on DC?

How could anyone forget the financial fraud of 2008? If you already have, watch the new PBS Frontline series: Money, Power, and Wall Street

http://video.pbs.org/video/2226666502

I wouldn't say never.......

however I am here supporting Dr. Paul, and unless Mittens turns into a Dr. Paul quickly, which I doubt, I cannot support or vote for him.
