There is no hypocrisy with

There is no hypocrisy for someone like Newt or Romney running up massive debts because thats what they and their puppet masters do. They get passes because of their dirty deeds. If Ron Paul was 4 mil in debt then you better believe Faux News would have tarred and feathered him for months on end and the IRS would have shut down his campaign. Rules are for the rule makers. Laws are for the law makers.

Just how many bound delegates did

Gingrich have?

Has Gingrich paid his $4M campaign debt? Nope.

Nothing found that he has paid his people. Nice guy that Newt.

Skip tracers should look for Newt at his moon base

lunacy

Now vote your conscience

Do any of the Newt delegates really want to vote for Mitt? Message to Newt's delegates. Welcome , Join the R3VOLution!

I think many who say "vote your conscience"

have very shallow consciences and actually need to expand their conscience if they don't want to keep losing what they believe is what is their conscience.

But if one knows

beyond a shadow of a doubt that he/sho would be casting a vote of compromise, shouldn't that alone be reason enough to honor one's conscience?

I know that casting my vote for anyone but Ron Paul would be a HUGE shift in my ideology and I simply can not live with that. I have expanded my conscience and choose most vehemently not to allow myself to aquiesce to what may appear the lesser bad.

IMHO - there is no such thing - they are all the same and merely offer a buffet of "badness" to appeal to different appetites.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

WTF?

You call people shallow and you type that garbage and think that it's somehow deep? I read it a few times and I'm still taken back by your incoherent ramblings . Try again Granger and with proper punctuation and clarity this time.
That way I may just comprehend or understand is what is their conscience ... I guess it's what the definition of what is is in that statement..

Does you post represent your conscience?

If your conscience is limited so that it entraps you into making choices that fail, perpetually FAIL, then maybe it's time to expand your conscience so that it enables you to win?

Insults are garbage.

Growth is not easy, expanding one's conscience isn't easy, but if you don't, you doom yourself to failure.

How's that work for conscience?

If you vote your conscience Granger

You'll never fail! If winning is voting other than your conscience or if you compromise your convictions to win. Well Granger, you haven't really won.
Conscience is your inner sense of what is right or wrong. If Newt's delegates have an inner sense that Mitt is the right guy now that their guy Newt tells them he converted and supports Mitt they have or had no real conscience. If they vote for Mitt because they believed all along that Mitt's their guy then they didn't need Newt to tell them anything.They'd then be flip floppers like Mitt and he probably would be their guy. But it wouldn't be their conscience telling them that. It would be their insecurities and needing to be with the crowd , being part of a winner as they now see it.That would be a compromise of their convictions that got them to that point. Dr Paul doesn't compromise on his convictions(PERIOD)
If all along they liked and thought that Dr Paul had good ideas and morals but they didn't support him because they just wanted to get along so they bought and followed the narrative of the RNC/GOP and the media. But now because of the "new freedom" that Newt just gave them they can look inward and still have the same admiration towards Dr Paul. Well now it's time for them to vote their conscience.
Your sentence Granger about Growth and expanding your conscience so you won't be doomed to fail is nothing more than being a Flip Flopper and if thats the way you feel then I would think that you wasted your 5 plus years on this site and you've bought into the narrative that a vote for Paul is a Vote for Obama. I sure hope you don't have much influence over Newt's delegates and their thinking. nuff said. Have a good day!

I sincerely don't agree

I have been voting my conscience for over 33 years and it got me and the issues I believed in lawsuits upon lawsuits upon lawsuits.

If that is winning, I don't see it.

As far as I'm concerned, if you didn't do what Ron paul asked, you're NOT supporting him and being ON THE TEAM.

I now see that the more we have on the committees, the easier it is to overpower them, but without that, it's the easier it is for them to overpower us and keep us marginalized.

If that is where conscience gets you, why bother?

I have a goal, materializing Ron Paul's message. It might not being done as YOU and YOUR conscience approves, but it's far more than this "conscience BS".

A vote for GJ is a vote for Obama. Writing in Ron paul is a vote for Obama. I think so many here are so out of tune and seeking "friends" rather than seriously fighting for liberty, that you have no clue what you are saying.

It's like common sense..

"Common-sense is part of the home-made ideology of those who have been deprived of fundamental learning, of those who have been kept ignorant. This ideology is compounded from different sources: items that have survived from religion, items of empirical knowledge, items of protective skepticism, items culled for comfort from the superficial learning that is supplied. But the point is that common-sense can never teach itself, can never advance beyond its own limits, for as soon as the lack of fundamental learning has been made good, all items become questionable and the whole function of common-sense is destroyed. Common-sense can only exist as a category insofar as it can be distinguished from the spirit of inquiry, from philosophy."

She is very misguided.

But her heart is in the right place.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Not like this mattered anyways,

since delegates are already considered to be unbound.

Still...

It sort of gives them permission to vote for someone else. It's a psychological thing called Consistency & Commitment. Many still would have voted for Newt... now they KNOW they don't have to.

Wimp

What a wimp.
