Saving the Republican Party

By voting for Obama. Ok, then.

I’m actually a bit more concerned about a Romney win if, as is looking to maybe be the case, the Rs pick up the Senate. Because the jackpot congress will pass whatever it wants and Romney will sign it.

    I’ll be voting for Gary Johnson, knowing the likely outcome will be Bush v. Perot v. Clinton.

    But maybe, JUST MAYBE, it’ll be another “President Johnson”, this one who wears a wookie suit in the Oval Office, rather than berating cabinet staffers while taking a crap, and showing female secretaries his hog.

    Agreed Unc.

    I will vote FOR whoever makes the best attempt to receive my vote:

    If a Republican pledges to support ” the guarantee of a republican form of government”, (Article IV, Section 4) and the rest of the Constitution, then I will vote FOR that candidate.

    “Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost. … Duty is ours; results are God’s.”–John Quincy Adams6th President of the United States (1767-1848)

    No one in DC thinks the Republicans have any chance of pickin up the Sente.

  5. Erik Says:

    The GOP won’t pick up 60 seats, which means they will only be able to pass whatever budget like items they want (with 51 votes). And since budget is the reason I send them there, I don’t see any issue with that.

    Isn’t this the same argument a number of Libertarians made for voting for Obama last election? I remember Radley Balko being a big proponent for that one because it would somehow “fix the Republican party”. That’s worked out so well.

    If my house is on fire, I’m going to spend my time trying to put it out, or at least save as much of my stuff as possible. I’m not going to sit there and throw gasoline on to speed things up.

    It’s simple, folks. The entire country, and that means even us who read these blogs, has been lulled into complacency, and complacency is how we got this overweening Feddle Bore-rot-cracy in the first place.

    The Nation has to be woken up. When they are awake, they then have to be told AND convinced just how bad off they are, and when THAT happens, they WILL vote to fix it, but not a moment sooner.

    A second Obama term guarantees the arrival of that moment of awakening, and it will guarantee the birth of such insurgency as it takes to put the Nation back on track.

    You look at it this way: you let Obama back in because only he will fuck up badly enough to REQUIRE the change back to our Original Vision. Romney will fuck up, but not badly enough to wake anyone up, so the problem remains after Romney is gone.

    Paul might be the game changer, he talks like one, but let’s face it, he and his Grand Plan haven’t gotten the traction to get started, and it’s unlikely he will.

    Nope, we have to have whoever it takes to build the barricades and get enough action in the streets going to wake up the country so they join the battle. That whoever is Obama. He alone WILL cause the re-birth movement to take hold.

    Yup, ‘Cloward-Piven‘ just yesterday arrive in France, and Greece.   Next stop, the U.S. of A.   Most likely this coming November.

    I cannot endorse or vote for an ineligible candidate like Mitt Romney or Barack Obama. I’ve researched the records available but have not had access to physical legal documents. Miles Romney was prosecuted in 1885 under the Edmunds Anti-Polygamy Act (for polygamy). This act allowed certain citizenship rights to be stripped of those convicted. Shortly after that he left for Mexico, taking his family with him. Mitt Romney’s grandparents were born on foreign soil, ( Utah became a state in 1896 ), and they were in Mexico before Utah did join the U.S..”Gaskell sued Mexico for the loss of his property and, in 1938, was awarded damages of $9,163. Half of the money went to his son, George Romney, putting the family on a solid financial footing.” – ONLY Mexican Citizens could own property in Mexico! Mitt’s father George was born in Mexico and came to the U.S. in 1912. Mitt Romney was born on U.S. soil in 1947, there is no legal documentation presented to prove George Romney was a U.S. Citizen at that time. As with Obama, Mitt’s birth certificate is meaningless. It only proves he was “native born”. We need legal documents proving George Romney was a U.S. citizen in 1947 with no divided loyalties, no dual citizenship.
    Voting for Mitt Romney further degrades the authority of our Constitutional requirements to be President of the United States of America. It is bad enough nobody is brave enough to officially define “natural born” as being of U.S. citizen parents in addition to being “native born” on U.S. soil and allowing the red herring of Obama’s fraudulent birth certificate distract from his REAL ineligibility due to his foreign father. Voting for ineligible Mitt makes us fools all over again! It makes us look like racists voting in a lighter version of Obama! I will ONLY vote for Ron Paul.
    The Supreme Court alone has authority to legally define “natural born”, wikipedia, T.V. news and newspaper articles are irrelevant.
    Birth certificates are irrelevant, they only prove “native born” on U.S. soil, “natural born” additionally requires U.S. citizen parents at the time of the Presidential candidates birth.
    Mitt Romney’s ineligibility can only be reputed by legal documentation proving George Romney was a U.S. citizen (NOT dual citizenship) in 1947 when Mitt was born.

    Under Sec. 301 (a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, the act in effect at the time of Barack Obama’s birth, the following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth: (7) “a person born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, was physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than ten years, at least five of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years: Provided that any periods of honorable service in the Armed Forces of the United States by such citizen parent may be included in computing the physical presence requirements of this paragraph.”This proviso in this act does not apply to Barack Obama, because his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham Obama, was not yet 19 years of age at the time of his birth. Republican Congressman tried as well, certainly NOT for Obama, but for Mitt Romney! THAT is why Congress allowed Obama to pass unvetted, BOTH sides were pushing ineligible candidates.

    The Nation has to be woken up. When they are awake, they then have to be told AND convinced just how bad off they are…

    Increasingly, my concern is that most are WIDE AWAKE already, and in fact, they are voting for a living. They are voting for exactly what they want, and they are getting it.

  12. Borepatch Says:

    One thing that is enormously different between today and even four years ago is that the wide spread discontent with the GOP has led not to folks staying home (as in 2008) but to hundreds of thousands of people in the streets. Polite and picking up the trash, but in the streets.

    It’s also led to a bunch of sad sack go-along-to-get-along republicans being primaried into unpersonhood.

    Right now, the response of the GOP establishment seems to be to double down on stupid. The question is how best to keep on bringing the unpersonhood.

    Right now there’s an awful lot of “ZOMG vote for Romney or teh Republic gets it!!!11!!” Reading the establishment conservative press (National Review, etc) you see a ton of that.

    Who knows – maybe Romney will bring back Constitutional governance. Having seen him in Massachusetts I’m not so optimistic. But I don’t have any doubt at all that the only real change we’ve seen has come from the Tea Party, and I also have no doubt that the GOP Establishment hates them (and the change) with the fire of a thousand suns.

    We may not vote ourselves out of this, but we sure as heck won’t with a vote for Mitt.

  13. Bubblehead Les Says:

    I don’t know anymore. I really think there’s a whole bunch of WHIGS out there in the Republitards Camp who could be perfectly happy with either the Anointed One or the Masshole, just as long as they get to keep clipping their Trust Fund Coupons. So screw them and their “Grand Old Party.”

    Can’t even Flip a Coin in the Voting Booth, because it’s going to be a “Heads I Lose, Tails I Lose” election.

    Meanwhile, the rest of the World is either Voting for the Far Right Nazis or the Far Left Commies, unless they are shooting each other.

    Sigh! I’m too old for this.

  14. Billll Says:

    A survey of persons walking in the hallways of the New York Times building suggests that after this elections, Republicans will be extinct.
    Republicans will need 60 votes in the Senate to pass anything really meaningful so no, Romney will not be signing some Libertarian wish list. I’m guessing 51-53 votes tops.
    Hobson’s choice? Certainly. The French just picked their version of Obama. I predict it won’t end well.

  15. Robert Says:

    I’m going to go for Romney, for two reasons
    1) A one-term Romney is safer than a second-term Obama (we ain’t seen nuthin’ yet)
    2) The Tea Party is currently too much “Democrat = Bad; Republicans = Good” — they need to be shown/reminded that no traditional politician will do them any good. And Romney can do that.

  16. Travis Says:

    Romney is no better then Obama anyone innfavornof big government is against the constitution simply put the constitution try’s to keep our liberties protected and to keep us protected from a government taking too much power, Obama has taken more rights away from bush as far as democratic and republican go the party’s are no longer different There’s only one way to save America weather we figure this out now 4 or 8 years from now the revolution and the people’s drive for liberty will prevail above all
