No-Romney BUT Especially No-Obama

No RomneyNo Obama

In 2008 the candidates for the Office of President were Barack Hussein Obama (Democrat) and John McCain (Republican).

From the beginning of BHO’s campaign I perceived he was less than honest person that too many voters accepted the promise of Change as if that meant merely change from the GWOT-President policies of eight years. Voters ignored what was known of Obama’s past and didn’t care about the past that Obama has still successfully hidden from the public eye.

The Republicans needed a charismatic person to overcome voter weariness of President George W. Bush policies of his 8 year tenure. Frankly I don’t believe voters would have been so weary of President GW if the Left Slanted MSM had not hated him so much. You will never see the media vilify Obama the way it did Bush even though the deceptiveness of Obama is well worth the vilification.

The Republican elites therefore sought a nominee that could swing Center-Left on some issues and Center-Right on other issues. In the beginning that candidate appeared to be Mitt Romney. Then the cantankerousness of McCain and the Social Conservatism of Huckabee gave GOP voters an alternative to the former Governor of Massachusetts which is one of the most Liberal States in the U.S. Union. In the 2008 the Conservatives were still the nerve center of the Republican Party and Romney’s record did not jive with Conservative issues.

Eventually the GOP race in 2008 became a race between the self-described rogue in McCain and the Social Conservative (but not necessarily a full-fledged fiscal Conservative) in Huckabee.

I believed then as I do now that McCain was a RINO. He was the perfect GOP Elite choice to try distance from Bush as a Center-Right and the hope of retaining the White House with McCain’s Center-Left thinking. McCain overcame Huckabee. By this time the Democrats had sold the voters that Obama would be the chosen one to bring back bi-partisan, transparent politics and the hope of ending an already long war in 2008.

Obama’s promises and vision was a bill of bad goods that a majority of American voters bought into. Obama had the leg up before McCain could paint a picture of a Moderate Centrist to receive the baton from Bush. In fact I am of the opinion McCain would have been crushed political even in worse terms if had not the foresight to choose a Family Values-Fiscal Conservative as a running mate. Indeed Sarah Palin captured the hearts of the GOP so much that the Left Wing MSM went on the attack on Palin to the point of making stories up to castigate her to the voters.

I did not like McCain but I did like Palin. I voted for the McCain/Palin ticket despite McCain’s RINO credentials because I knew Obama backed by the Clintonista political machine would take America down a path of “Change” that voters did not comprehend in 2008. I am no political pundit genius however Obama has lived up to everything I thought he would do.

The Obama mantra of “Change” had less to do with repudiating President Bush and more to do with transforming America into the Socialist European style democracy. Socialism European style means the shredding of the U.S. Constitution. The Living Constitution crap of the Left is turning the Original Intent of the U.S. Constitution into a historical fable of days gone by.

It appears that 2012 is a path that is mirroring 2008. Only this time Mitt Romney has more money and better organization. Romney has become the slow and steady tortoise racking up delegates while GOP Conservatives have been messing themselves up by splitting Conservative voters into fractured camps as Romney keeps collecting delegates. Many people are doing the math and the general consensus is Mr. slow and steady will win the GOP nomination because of the failure of Conservatives to unite behind one candidate.

Part of the problem is that the GOP candidates still in the running for the nomination have a bit of baggage that Conservative true-hearts find objectionable. An honest look at the records of Santorum and Gingrich will demonstrate their Conservative legislative decisions outweigh their Center-Left decisions. Can Romney make the same claim?

Anyway, I am still in the anyone-but-Romney crowd as a GOP voter and in the anyone-but-Obama voters when it comes to the General Election in November 2012. An Obama reelection will validate the course he has chosen for America. This means the Obamunistic Radical Left will continue to Change-Transform America into a Leftist Utopia solidifying Moral Relativity over Biblical Morality, Government intrusion over Limited Government, the agenda to denigrate Christianity over America’s Christian heritage, Demand Divisive Diversity over E Pluribus Unum (Out of many, ONE) and so on with the picture of Leftist Change.

I am voting for whoever wins the GOP nomination even if they are a RINO – again. It would take super star Conservative leadership to reverse the Leftist curse of EIGHT years of Obama. If the Tea Party Movement remains strong there will be a counter-balance of preventing a RINO from going too far to the Left. AND I know a RINO will not endorse the utopian agenda dreams of Obamunism.

Still there are Conservative purists that would rather vote on principle rather than succumb to a GOP President that might have tendencies to make some Center-Left decisions. My son Adam is one of those kind of Conservative purists. Another person is a Facebook friend Danny Jeffrey. Here is Jeffrey’s reasoning on sticking to principle.

"If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace."
Thomas Paine

In the years I have been writing on the Internet I have met many patriots, seen them display many beautiful flag images, watched soul stirring videos they have posted, and have read many profound thoughts posted by those who love America. Perhaps the most noble of those thoughts has been to protect future generations from the problems we have brought upon ourselves. Now I fear that I may lose some friends as I must travel a road different than the one they have chosen for themselves, for it is a road that conscience will not allow me to walk.
I have openly admitted that I did not vote in the 2008 election and have borne the criticism for that disclosure. It was, and is, my thoughts that McCain, Progressive RINO, and Obama, hardcore Marxist, both on the payroll of George Soros, were a great evil and a greater evil, and I could not in good faith vote for either, and I have no regrets for the omission! Obama, perhaps due to his youth, can probably dance a bit higher than John McCain as Soros pulls the strings, but both are dancers. Obama also articulates the Soros agenda better than the Senator from Arizona, but in a contest of morals, I cannot help but think it a dead heat.

My conservative friends voted dutifully for the GOP candidate who went on to advocate overthrowing the dictator of Libya. Now a flag of Al Qaeda flies unfurled in the Libyan winds and those weapons that Qaddafi hoarded are finding their way into the hands of terrorists. Always reaching for even greater achievements, McCain now advocates American pilots bombing Syria and bringing a Soros induced "Democracy" to that nation as well ... and in doing so he will be liberating Syria's WMDs for the upcoming war against Israel. It matters not to me who may criticize my failure to vote for a Presidential candidate in 2008, for I am glad that I did not vote for the Progressive little weasel.

And of the 2010 election? It was a sweeping victory for American conservatives, but what did it accomplish? Obama and his czars are still treading on the Constitution. The EPA continues to make headway in the dis-assembly of America. The courts are embracing Islam. Our allies are afraid to rely on our promises, and the enemies of our nation dine in style at the White House. And, perhaps worst of all, the Progressive press continues to reassure gullible citizens that everything is well in Obamaville and soon all will be better.

Then, as soon as that much hoped for 2010 election was over, campaigning for 2012 began.

We knew from the start that the RNC granted Romney the vaunted title of the Chosen One, and for a very brief time every conservative vowed to stop him as they knew that he has taken both sides of every issue ever put before him, and demonstrated his love of socialized medicine. Massachusetts! I cannot help but wonder if Americans are ready to watch the same man the people of Massachusetts chose as Governor, to lead America in its final days of decline. So, if it comes down to Romney vs Obama, we have the same choice we had in 2008 ... Hard core Progressive vs Hard core Marxist. Even George Soros admits there is little difference between them.

Those we have sent to our nation's capitol have long since grown accustomed to their comforts on the hill, and, as the Romans had bread and circus, we have food stamps and cell phones, and the greatest entertainment of all: The mistaken belief that things will be better after the next election. The last time things got better was when Reagan took a firm control of American events and both parties have vowed that will never happen again. So many profess to walk in his footsteps but they cannot fill his shoes while making deals with Progressives. Look at the RNC's choice for Speaker of the House. John Boehner. Just another RINO professing to be a Reagan loyalist. So many stand in the shadow of Ronald Reagan because they cannot let their true selves be seen in the light of day.

Concerning where the Progressives and the Marxists want to lead America ... It is the same destination. The only difference is the speed at which the two groups want to proceed. Hillary is a prime example. We watched her announce that she was a Progressive, not a Liberal. We also watched how easily she, as a Progressive, adopted the Marxist/Islamist cause. Whether you vote for a Marxist or a Progressive you are still going to watch the nation's descent to hell. Only those who are willing to bear the necessary sacrifices will make any difference in the future of America. Those seeking the rebirth of freedom by voting against a Marxist and for a Progressive have a lot to learn.

Many have long complained about Americans kicking the can down the road and allowing debt to pile up on our grandchildren, and yet now, to avoid the strife they know must happen, they are prepared to vote for Anyone But Obama. We are rapidly approaching the breaking point and it will most assuredly occur if Obama is reelected. If, on the unlikely chance that he is not, then we may be able to kick the can down the road another four, maybe even eight years, and let the next generation deal with what we would not. Sadly, due to anti gun laws Hillary is seeking, they may no longer have the implements necessary to resist the encroaching tyranny.

We all know that it is coming. Occupy Wall Street is ready to claim all streets this summer, and in all probability Obama will win reelection. He would love to have a reason to impose martial law across this land and the question remains ... Will Americans continue to meekly accept the whims of the anointed one and look longingly toward another election, or will they once again follow in the footsteps of real patriots? We must soon decide if we are to stand as patriots or bow as subjects. That decision, when made, will say so much about the Americans of today, for if they choose to cower submissively in the role of subjects, and deliver their grandchildren into bondage, then they deserve not freedom.

I leave you with the words of John Adams...

"I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy." John Adams

FREEDOM RINGS 1776 is a conservative voice, defending the views of those who still believe in the constitution and opposing any and all who would lead us from our tried and true beliefs. We who still believe in the spirit of 1776 must oppose anyone who would set this nation on a course that will fundamentally transform America.

About Danny Jeffrey:

I'm sixty seven and since Ronald Reagan left office I have watched my country slowly deteriorate as freedoms are lost and the value of our currency dwindles. This has been a slow but steady decline until Barrack Obama entered the White House. I will not refer to this man as President. That is a job that deserves respect and he has earned none at all. I am convinced that were it not for the Tea Party stirring up the public we would now be living under a total dictatorship. He seeks only power and has no loyalty at all to the United States, and as long as he is in office I shall write to any who will read and speak of what he is and what he is doing to this country.
