Romney and Ryan would have been great for America!

The Issue at hand

I am a fan of conservative talk radio on both local and national levels. Recently I have been hearing a lot of conservative folks stating they will not support a non conservative Republican nominee for the 2012 election. Many of these call in ranters say that they want to get a message across to the Republican higher ups that they, Republicans, have to get back to conservatism if they want our votes. While I wholeheartedly support a return to conservatism, I am much more concerned with the direction Obama and his merry band of liberal radicals are taking our country. If we "let" him have another four years in charge, well, America may no longer be recognizable to any of us.

Obama is creating a Nanny State and he is already being called the "Food Stamp President" because, under Obama, the Department of Agriculture handed out nearly twice as many food stamp dollars in 2011 as it did in 2008. All of us who go to work and pay taxes are buying food for those who cannot or will not work. I do not mind helping those who truly cannot help themselves but if you are too lazy to get up and get a job, I do not want to support you!

Obama is mandating Health Insurance for all, whether we want it or not. So far, "free" health care is costing me $35.00 more a month because ObamaCare mandates that my employer no longer give it's employees health insurance free of charge "huh." So now, I, the hardworking citizen, have to pay for what my employer used to give me for free so that those who do not work can have free health insurance. No thank you Mr. Obama!

I want our Republican nominee to be a traditional conservative but at the same time, I am wise enough to realize that I must support whomever the nominee is. We cannot afford more of this "Obamination." If you think you are making a strong statement to the Republicans by not voting then you are an idiot! You are falling right into the Liberal hands. We cannot let that happen. The mission at hand is this "Get rid of Obama" and we can work on the Republican return to conservatism right after that. We must save our beloved America!

Update: Romney is the Republican candidate - we did well in choosing him. He is an absolutely brilliant business man, he has fostered many more jobs than Obama ever thought of. Romney created a fortune on his own accord. The money he inherited from his father was donated to charity. He was a man with ambition and drive, he wanted to earn his own way in life, and he has done that very well. He has a squeaky clean record and a stellar business sense. We need to make sure we do all we can as Republicans support this candidate. It is up to us to help him win the White House and make Obama a one term mistake. Conservatives - Rally Behind Romney!

Update: Romney recently announced that Paul Ryan will be his running mate and vice president. This too is a fabulous choice. Ryan is a conservative choice and he is a Catholic family man with a good speaking manner and terrific financial idea's. His GOP Convention speech was a heartfelt pledge to the American people who want to make our country proud of it's heritage once again.

      As long as there are loyal party voters, the Vote Row A or Row B, there can never be the best candidates for the office.

      The proof of this is history, we didn't get where we are today because of one person or one congress. It took over a half a century for the congresses and presidents to bring us to our current position.

      Over the years, both parties have had a turn at the wheel, and the one direction that turn the wheel doesn't go is straight forward.

      No more backing the RepubliCRAT progressive lite candidate. The party moves right or it enters the dust bin of history. The idiots are those being suckered in AGAIN.

      ib I won't argue with you but I will remind you - we had to hear the Liberal Media blame Bush for every last problem we had for the first 2 plus years of Obama's presidency. Maybe it's time he owns alittle of his own mess.....

      Voting party OVER voting principles is why were at this point. McCain proved this dog won't hunt. History will repeat again.

      Welcome aboard, Conservative Lady. You've stated a very important point with absolute clarity--and I assure you, We the People are NOT likely to make the mistake of electing Obama TWICE. We'll support the nominee in droves, pedal to the metal, hammer down.

      There are always going to be some, both on the left and the right, who will remain unable to see the forest for the trees. But there are also countless dedicated conservatives who are at this point simply waiting until we do in fact have our nominee selected--at which time the roar of engines leaving the starting line will be deafening.

      The (fortunately rare) ideological purist who chooses to "sit out" an election featuring an "imperfect" candidate is not the voter who will determine the outcome in November. I give you this for optimism:

      1. Those who would "sit out", say, a Mitt Romney run are ALSO those who "sat out" when McCain ran in '08. They were no factor then; they're no factor now. Zero net net.

      2. Obama won the nation in '08 by an average of 6%.

      3. NO ONE who voted against him then is going to vote for hm this time.

      4. A whole lot more than 6% of the electorate is deeply disgusted with his Presidency, so his only hope (ignore the polls--they don't know what they're talking about at this point) is fooling more new voters than he's lost from those of us who've been watching him do his thing.

      He will lose in November, possibly by a considerable margin.

      Can we afford to take that for granted? Most certainly not. But NONE of us are doing that.

      Thank you Ghost! I am so glad to hear from a rational person who understands the situation so well. You have given me some peace of mind that there are still folks who care about the future of our country. P.S. I am in Spokane ;-) Saw your note about having lived here in the past. Well wishes, Sheila
