    Say what you will. If I am going to pray that if the course the US is on can be altered for the good, and have faith that God hears my prayer, there is this: At least I’m certain that Romney prays every day (with his wife, when able), and ends his prayers with “in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen”.

    huh. looks like I’m in the minority here, but as much as I really, really detested MR and the thought of him being our nominee early on, I’ve really started to gain some respect for him and his campaign. I have no doubt that he will be light years better than zippy has been, and watching his campaign organization respond to attacks has made me reconsider my position with regard to his ability to win. I was a strong Newt fan, but as much as I love what Newt tried to do, I had to admit that he was not able to communicate it well enough to carry the day. I am totally Team ABO, but far less unhappy with MR as the nominee than I thought I’d be.

      I agree MRM. As he carried the Blue states, I began to think it might be good that he gets the nomination because I wonder how many in the Blue states will hold their nose to vote someone that is a bit less liberal than Obama. Also, the way they shut down the polygamy attack and turned the dog attack around still makes me laugh.

      Sharing a Religion with MR has not made me a fan. But hes mad a lot of fans in it. He wasn’t my first choice but he is better than Obummer. He knows what its like to run a business and he prays to God and I really hope 3 1/2 years in he wont still be blaming Obummer for his own mistakes. Its sad when we have to vote for people, not cause we like them but because they are better than what we have.

      As long as we keep a strong Congress and take the Senate, we can keep him from turning all John McCain liberal on us. But we need to stay focused on 1. Getting BHO out and 2. making sure Romney has a strong conservative Congress to keep him in check.

      I agree with you, MRM. I also wanted Newt, but MR has grown on me (I think I was also a bit subject to the false narrative about *him* in the media). I especially like how MR responds forcefully, frequently, and quickly to anything that the Obama sleaze team churns out.

      In the primary that’s fine – not in November. Every vote that isn’t for MR is a vote that Obummer doesn’t need to worry about. Sarah would not approve.

        Exactly. Do whatever you want in the primary… especially now that we have an official nominee. But in November, any patriot will be voting against zippy and his anti-American agenda.

    MR was not my first choice for nominee, but it seems he is what we are going to have for a choice.

    That said, barring any miracle of the perfect Republican/Conservative changing this fact, I’m going to be politically incorrect here and offer my ideas of why people should vote for MR even if you don’t like him personally.

    Unlike President Obama, he is not going to be able to scream racism if we disagree with him, and the MSM will not be carrying his water so he will be held to a higher standard if he strays from what he has promised.

    As far as I know he is not a Marxist/socialist/communist and if he doesn’t get this country back on track to be viewed as a world power to be respected again we can hold his feet to the fire, or vote him out.

    We know the destructive path that President Obama is on and it is going to destroy this country,with Romney we have a chance to change things. Yes, he has flip flopped a lot, and I don’t like that but some hope is better than no hope. If nothing else it will slow down the decline of this country until we get the strong “Constitutional Conservative” we need.

    Last if he pulls any unconstitutional stunts like overriding our Constitution with runs around Congress or Executive orders I don’t think that it would be hard getting enough votes to impeach him.

    In other words, we will have more power as a country to do something to stop MR if strays from his elected and legitimate duties as President of the US.

    I know I will catch some flack here for saying this, but I have a feeling that Obama will be re-elected now. With people not votinf FOR Romney, but AGAINST Obama, I don’t think it will be enough to really get the independent vote. The Obama-nuts have motivation about their candidate.

    Why is the Republican party so self-destructive? It just seems like they work so hard to shun their conservative base and no matter how many times we tell them we do not want to support “their” chosen candidate, they still force him on us anyway.

    My only hope is that Republican party completely falls apart after Obama is re-elected and the conservatives either take over or form a real small-government party.

    I’ll do my part, reluctantly, and vote for MR. I’ll agree that he has been sounding more conservative lately, but that’s the problem with Romney. No one really knows what his real stances are because he becomes whatever he thinks people want at any given moment. Who knows what he will do if he were elected. If his time in MA is any indicator, our choices are Obama or Obama-lite.

    On the other hand, if he IS so mallable, perhaps he will realize where his votes were really coming from and and at least perform conservatively.

    He is a busniness man and is experienced with dealing with large amounts of money and management, but if most of his business endeavors are an indicator, he will save our economy by selling huge chunks of the U.S. to China and other foreign governments. It’s scary how much of our infrastructure has already been sold to foreign governments.

      To qualify my position, I want to see someone “like” Ron Paul. I am not a Ron Paul nut (I was back in 2008.) But want to see a no-bull conservative candidate, in the form of someone with enough charisma to get people motivated and able to properly articulate that “hey, these are the long term goals, but in the short term we have to make more moderate changes towards those goals.” While having met Ron Paul personally and knowing that is really his position, I realize his candidacy was always about a message and lacked the details of a realistic strategy to get there.

      Like him or hate him, he definitely banded together a lot of conservatives and motivated them which will (hopefully) ultimately help in the long-term.

        Justice- Ron Paul didn’t band together the conservatives, he banded together the Libertarians. There is a very distict difference between the two. Paul ran on the Libertarian ticket in 88, and didn’t do so well. He crawled on his knees back into the R party, after slamming Ronald Reagan in 88, when he said that he was leaving the R party because of the failure of Ronald Reagan.

        If there is such a banding together of the Paul Libertraians, then by all means, get the Libertarian party up to snuff, move it forward, see how many will support that ticket. This year is not the year to try to accomplish that endeavor as we have a full fledged Marxist in the WH, that no doubt will make elections non-existent by 2016 if he is re-elected. There is a reason why he is pals with Hugo Chavez, and told Medveded to tell Vlad to give him time until he wins re-election.

        It is my personal opinion that anyone who thinks that throwing a hissy fit, and voting for Obama, or third party in 2012 is asking for something they will truly regret later. Obama has to go, yesterday.

          I disagree with the libertarian-only reference. I am not a libertarian. My friends that supported Ron Paul are not libertarians, and trust me I have no love for Libertarians.

          I was a bit dismayed with you pulling out some automatic talking points on this one, Minipin. I won’t be voting for Ron Paul or a third party, as I said. But, every time the elections come up we hear the same thing, “Now is not the time to stand up and vote for a third party because xxxx, is at stake.” I have heard that argument every single election since I was able to vote. Really? When IS a good time to support a conservative candidate and make a stand against the status quo?

          In other words, keep being held captive to the false two party system and perpetuate the ultimate destruction of this country. Hmm…

          Obviously I know you aren’t intending that and I am definitely not trying to pick a fight with you, but please really evaluate where this very unoriginal thought came from. Almost word for word, you auto-responded with the talking points given by the republican party as if it was some type of reflex.

          Let me be clear, it is never going to be a good time to stand up and fight for our country. And while I certainly don’t want another 4 years of Obama, I sincerely doubt the end-world scenario you offered will ever happen during those 4 years.

          I have a great deal of respect for you, Minipin. Just expressing my dismay at this. It seemed rather odd coming from you. Of course, who I pull the lever for is my business, but I have no problem telling you that I will be voting for Romney barring some crazy action on his part to change that. But I won’t like it one bit, and it will make me a part of the problem, too.

            I guess what I am saying is do you really believe the American people are not ready to support a conservative candidate? If you really think about what you are arguing, you will see that you are implying that. That a conservative candidate will not do well, so we shouldn’t support them. Sounds just like the Republican Party’s excuse for shunning conservatives.

            I’m not sure if you are old enough to remember, but the republican party had no love for Ronald Reagan, either.

      Because we keep doing what they tell us to do when they tell us to do it, so they keep on keeping on. Win or lose, like you, I hope the Republican party is done for.

        The biggest change in the R party has to, and I repeat has to, start with the RNC chair elections. Prebius was hand chosen, and pushed far and hard by the Barbours, including Haley, a past RNC chair. Not many pay much attention to the RNC chair elections, it’s only the most die hard that even know those elections even exist.

        There have been a few people who have competed for those elections that would have been far superior to what was elected, such as Ken Blackwell, and no, not because he is a black man. He had such great, well detailed plans, when he ran against Michael Steele, but alas, it was Michael Steele’s turn. Again, there is very little interest in these chair elections.

        When we finally give up the dinosaur primary rules, like allowing Iowa, a consistent D state, to be the first to choose our candidate, it would be a great start. It is critical that the primary schedule changed so that the open primary states don’t get to pick our candidate early on, and then give them momentum to move the race forward for that candidate that no one wants.

        Gotta start with the RNC to change anything in the R party. That’s where it all starts.

      Romney wasn’t my first choice, but don’t even compare him with McCain. Romney is a businessman and knows how to make money and stick within a budget. All McCain knows how to do is compromise with the DemonRats. The one thing that McCain did right was catapult Sarah Palin to the national spotlight for which I am extremely grateful. I am pleasantly surprised with how he has run his campaign recently. He’s thrown everything that BO/BS has tried to pull on him back in his face. Also, what Romney has that McCain didn’t, is an awake electorate and BO/BS has a horrific record.

    Mitt is what we need. A business man that will end the idiotic spending. Like with your house budget….if you don’t have it, you don’t spend it. We need a man with a business background in there to follow a budget, get rid of “programs” that continue to cripple the country, and have a back bone when it come to these meely little countries that continue to hold their hands out and make no changes. Are you happy to see your hard earned dollars go to a country in which the people there want to kill us? I’m not.
