Why I intend to vote for Mitt Romney for president.

This will get shot down by most here and to be perfectly honest, I understand. If you want to vote for Gary Johnson or Virgil Goode that is your business. But, I would like to voice the reasons why I will be voting for the Romney/Ryan ticket in November and will encourage everyone I meet who intends to vote, to do the same.

I had hoped that once Romney won the nomination that Ron Paul supporters would just let the presidential race go and concentrate their efforts on funding the campaigns of the dozens of Liberty candidates we have around this country this year on state ballots. Kurt Bills could sure use our help, but, because he and most other Ron Paul-endorsed candidates are supporting the Republican nominee, many Paul supporters now want nothing to do with them - which is why we have to keep talking about the sorry choices we have for president this November.

I will be voting for Mitt Romney because I believe Barrack Obama is THE worst president in U.S. history. He makes Keynes look like a Monetarist. Romney and his mushy, moderate supporters make me sick, but, it's either a mushy, moderate, status quo president, or an Alinsky radical. I will hold my nose any day of the week for a mushy moderate if it means buying a few more years time. Nixon was no fiscal Conservative nor classical liberal, but, if Hubert Humphrey had won in 1968, the United States today would be a mirror image of the crappy condition of the EU states, only worse (at least they don't have an empire to manage). Nixon managed to buy the Conservative movement time - time to build at the grassroots and eventually take the White House in 1980 and hold it for 8 years, not to mention dominating local politics.

We're not going to force the GOP to embrace us by giving the Kenyan fascist, wannabe socialist four more years. That will only cause them to hate us more and want us out of their party even more.

I'm 21 years old and a junior in college. Lord-willing, I have most of my whole life ahead of me in this country and I care too much for the U.S. and my future to do anything that could potentially give Barrack H. Obama, whose policies, agenda, and unconstitutional shenanegins make Lincoln look like Jefferson four more years to finish transforming America into his father's dreams.

I'm sorry if you disagree, but, it's Romney or Obama and I would take 20 years of the former before accepting one more year of the latter.

Reagan took Carter's deficit

Reagan took Carter's deficit of 30 billion and made it 120 billion(IIRC).

Bush took that deficit and made it 275 billion.

Clinton took that deficit and made it a mild surplus. Bush took that surplus and gave us a 1.5 trillion dollar deficit.

Obama has turned that 1.5 trillion deficit into a 1.1 trillion deficit.

So how is it that the Democrats become the fiscally irresponsible ones?

How is Obama a Kenyan facist? How has he transformed the fundamental nature of this country? These are some ridiculous assertions.

Moderate? Nixon was radical, Wage and price controls?

Nixon implemented ton of the most radical economic policies in U.S history. Mises determined that the point at which government determines prices and not the market as the point something is socialized...

By that definition the economy under Nixon was more socialist that under any other peace time administration!

If we always fall in line

If we always fall in line with their 2 party system, it will never end. We MUST take our vote and make a point!!!! If we all voted for a third party, preferably the same one, it would show the Media and America that our votes do matter.
After what the GOP pulled at the convention, we have the power to make them pay for their corrupt misconduct. We have the power to keep them from ever winning another election. Who wants a candidate that commits fraud among everything else they have done to have the power of POTUS? Isn't that what we have now? What difference does the R or D mean if they are both corrupt?
Please think about it, really think. We finally have the power to say "If you mess with us, you will never win again" and that is what it is going to take for them to stop this corrupt system.
Please do it for your children's sake. We don't want them to say that their parents were too scared to stand up to this machine. Our time to make a difference is NOW! Don't let it slip away.


What do you propose we replace it with?

There are already 36 nationlly registered thirs parties. The broken duopoly is by design to gove an excuse to go into a NWO where the USA will have one party like Communist China. Is that what you actually want?

Both parties are evil because

Both parties are evil because at the top they are run by the same people. There is no difference between Benjamin Ginsberg, Sheldon Adelson, Rahm Emanuel, and David Axelrod.

I am 52

And voting for the lesser of 2 evils for 30+ years, gets us nowhere...

RP has so helped our numbers grow....we need to make a statement now (quite frankly, I'm tired of waiting :)



sharkhearted's picture

Here is why you are wrong:

1) You are voting against your principles...which kind of cancels out your principles....much like when your VP choice whored himself out on the Congressional floor in defense of TARP (!) to the "madame" Speaker, with one of the WORST breaches of logic in recent history:


2) You are choosing the "lesser of two evils" (much like Roosevelt sided with Stalin to defeat Hitler)....although, aside from the millions of unborn children slaughtered (which is bad enough), there are not scores of millions currently being starved to death in gulags and, in a lesser number simultaneously roasted in concentration camps in Germany and Poland.

So, in essence, the lesser of two evils is not applicable here because it all balances out. HEAR ME CAREFULLY HERE: Hayek wrote that socialism brings the natural outgrowth of fascism.

And while Flip-Flopney may (may) slow down the socialism (and really straight up communism and marxism of Obama), Flip-Flopney will be powerless to slow down the FASCISM....as he is bought out by the same corporatist overlords that bought out and paid for Obama in 2008.

{And I don't need to refer you to opensecrets.org so you can see who the donors are/were....as I am sure you probably already know who they are.]

The sheer evils of the presidential-assasination wielding, ULTRA neo-con betrayer named Barak Hussein Obama...are now balanced out by the fact that the Romney campaign is now saying that Obama is too weak on foreign policy(!).



(How does that offend your principles, Dixie-paleocon, with this bastardization of the peace-loving Old Right? Yeah I thought so. It offends mine, too.)

3) Paul Ryan voted for the NDAA, and then voted AGAINST the repeal of sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA.

He is no Ayn Rand disciple. Nor is he a "conservative". Voted for Medicare Part D, TARP, and the bailouts.


4) Flip Flopney has a similar and equally sordid record.


I am not sure what further incontrovertible evidence you need but for all of the foregoing, you are wrong wrong wrong on this...and DULY downvoted.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

The two are Polital twins

Romney could even be the clone of Obama and a clone can not beat the master. My long voting record as a Republican is over, Romney will have to steal the election like the primary. That is the only way he will win.

I wonder who George Soros wants to be President, since he bought the rights to tally the votes for the Media from Spain. Maybe we should ask him who will be the next POTUS.


Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

This is an interesting Wiki Article


I've been drawing a lot of parables between the Communist party and Obama, and Hitler and Romney. Just replace "Jews" with "terrorist". Keep in mind that according to the NDAA, knowing your rights to the constitution, stocking up on food, supporting dissidents (like Ron Paul), and stocking up on food supplies for more than 7 days (and more), you are a suspected terrorist. Having Flashlight and Batteries apparently is a problem too. Just having Ron Paul stickers make you a suspect.


Now, just replace "terrorist" with "Jews". Keep in mind, when Hitler was voted in, he was considered "the lesser of two evils" too. And history has proven right. The communist killed more people than Hitler did.

You like his views on continuing the drug war?

and his stance on medical marijuanna?

Please subscribe to smaulgld.com

No, I like his views on

repealing Obamacare and job-killing regulations. I also believe Romney will be easily pushed into privatizing the TSA and auditing the FED. Of course, the Rand-bashers won't be any use in that department because they don't support anyone that supports Romney. Ironically, it will be those who support Romney like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee who keep their spurs dug in Romney's sides.

Romney will NOT repeal

Romney will NOT repeal Romneycare. As he said, he will try to "replace" it. He will tinker with it so he can put the Republican stamp of approval upon it and Republicans can claim "victory" for being a part of it.

Romney will not eliminate a single government Department. He does even argue to do so.

He does not even argue against the income tax. What good are a couple percentage point reduction in income tax slavery while he rapidly expands government, expands deficits and the debt? Romney has proposed no plan for eliminating the deficit let alone the debt. Ryan's plan does not eliminate the debt. Ryan's plan actually calls for expansion of government and government spending. It is a complete joke. Why in the world would anyone even consider supporting such a destructive path? Because Obama also offers a path to destruction, you must therefore support Romney's path to destruction. It is self-defeating. It destroys prosperity. It destroys liberty. It destroys this country.

Baloney! The right thing to do is to call out Romney for what he is - to speak the truth about both candidates and where their policies lead us - destruction.

There is no substantive difference between Willard Obamna and Barack ORomney. Romneycare will not be repealed. The bulk of Republicans will go back to sleep allowing the Republican Party to expand government at record levels, just like they did under Bush. The debt will grow. The deficits will continue. Not a single federal department will be eliminated. They will continue to embrace the Hitler doctrine of preemptive warfare. They will continue illegal foreign occupations that suck the lifeblood out of resources and money the USA. They both support TBTF redistributionist bailouts. The Patriot Act will not be repealed. NDAA indefinite detentions will not be repealed. They won’t even discuss repealing the income tax. They won’t repeal the Federal Reserve. They won’t push for free competition in currency.

I want someone who will argue for the repeal of the entire income tax. I want someone who will repeal entire federal departments; Who will legalize free competition in currency; who won't support TBTF redistributionists banker bailouts; who will end these vampiric life draining, prosperity draining, wealth draining illegal foreign occupations; who will repeal the Patriot Act; who will repeal the NDAA indefinite detention provisions; who will end warrantless wiretapping or agents writing their own warrants; who will unequivocally repudiate the Hitleresque doctrine of preemptive warfare; who won't just tinker with Romneycare so he can put a Republican stamp of approval upon it but will outright repeal Romneycare; and also phase out other socialist federal programs like Medicare and Social Security.
I want someone who understands the concepts of liberty, not merely someone who might ad hoc pick the better positions on a few isolated issues.

Romney is the pathway to national destruction. The fact that Obama also is the pathway to national destruction does not make Romney any better.

If you would actually take the time

to research Romney's position on healthcare, you'd find that many of the things that he wants to do to reform healthcare in place of Obamacare are things Ron Paul wanted to do, such as block granting Medicaid to the states, ending tax code discrimination on individual insurance purchases, and allowing consumers to purchase health insurance across state lines. Yeah, I want a president that will do away with the income tax too (w/o replacing it with a sales tax), but, no such president will be on the ballot.

You must've forgotten

It's, 'Repeal and Replace', according to Rombama himself.

Ron Paul wanted to repeal and replace

Obamacare with less regulation, block granting Medicaid to the states and allowing insurance purchases across state lines....................so does Romney.

Romney wants his own


Or you could title this post......

I heard what Dr. Paul has to say.

He told Cavuto that his supporters should make their own decisions. Well, it is my decision to vote for Romney because Romney and Goode are about the same in my opinion, but, unlike Goode, Romney is the nominee of a major party.

Romney is not the nominee, it

Romney is not the nominee, it is now an appointed position.

Good one

You can't trust Romney. Let

You can't trust Romney. Let me remind you of George Bush in 2000.


Romney is just demagoguing. He's a liar. If we vote in Romney then conserviatives who are fired up socialism and obama will go back to sleep for 8 years. While Romney does the same thing as Obama.

If Obama gets a second term, we will most likely have

a Democratic president elected in 2016 who will continue Obama's and the Democratic Party's Keynesian, loose-constructionist, redistributionist agenda. It amazes me how so many of you act like if Obama wins then not only will a Republican be guaranteed a victory in 2016, but, that Republican will happen to be a former Ron Paul supporter.

George McGovern was a great leader of the antiwar movement.

in a lot of ways the" McGovern youth"was a very similar movement to the e3VOLutin. He wasn't perfect but it is too bad that he lost the election to a crook like Nixon. He would have saved the lives of thousands of young men who did not deserve to die in Vietnam.

Nixon is a choirboy compared to what Romney is.

Well, I was referencing the election of 1968, not

the election of 1972 when McGovern was the Democratic nominee. Hubert Humphrey did not support an immediate withdrawal from Vietnam, which resulted in the riot outside the DNC convention in '68. George Wallace was the only candidate on the ballot in '68 who supported an immediate withdrawal of all troops from Vietnam if on the moment he took office it looked like it would not be "winnable within thirty days."

McGovern was a big government, pro-welfare guy who was atrocious on domestic issues. It wouldn't have made a whole lot of difference in Vietnam if McGovern had won in '72 because as soon as Nixon won the election, in January of '73, he agreed to bring the rest of the troops home.


Over 97% of the American troops that died in Vietnam died before Nixon beat McGovern.


I'm already hearing it from the sleepy MSM crowd the ole

"Well if you vote for Gary Johnson, it'll be your fault that Barack Obama wins" Really? Well my answer to that is The majority of republican voters were in favor of Ron Paul. Just because The Romney "crime syndicate" rigged the straw votes state by state doesn't change that. So I say it would be the Romney supporters to blame for not voting Gary Johnson if Obama wins. Maybe enough Romney supporters will take note and decide that they should instead vote for Gary if theyreally want Obama out. Every one in my family plus many of my friends have already said they refuse to vote for Obamney and that Gary Johnson seems to be the only reasonable alternative at this time.

Are you

serious? I don't know you if have figured it out but both Romeny and Obama are bought and paid for by the NWO as puppets. Either one will carry on the NWO's agenda to enslave all of us. Now go away and be with the mindless idiots out there that believe that Romney is going to save you. No one here supports tyranny so be gone!

NWO puppet.


you don't understand what "puppet" means. They will do the same things because it is the same people who control them duh. Obama is doing the same thing that Bush did just different rhetoric. Don't be a fool, be a voice for liberty and the end of the 2 party tyranny that is controlled by the banking elite. And I thought that there was only a wake people on this site.
