   As a conservative, the views of Mitt R. do not match my own as well as those of the other candidates.  Yet I voted for Mitt in the primary because I think he has the best chance of beating Obama.    As the old saying goes, sometimes we have to "hold our nose" and vote.

I agree with you reasoning. However, I live in Kansas, a State that would vote for Hitler if he ran as a Republican, so I'm left to vote my conscience. I'll be voting for Gary Johnson in the Fall.

*chuckles*  In other words, the Republican party is likely to emerge from this whole affair with fatal divisions between its conservative evangelical wing (Rick Santorum) and its (relatively) moderate wing (Mitt Romney).  And they so asked for it, too.


As for me, None of the Above.

I remember the Republican Party of years ago.  It was a respectable, responsible, mainstream --- albeit somewhat conservative --- party of the likes of Dick Lugar, Christie Whitman, Tom Kane and Jake Javits.  Over the past generation, it's been co-opted by radical reactionaries.  What happened?


If I had to draw cartoon animal characters of the current front-runners, Mitt would be a chamelion, Newt a reptile, and Rick an old hound dog (sincerely lovable but smelly  and with fleas).  Ron Paul would be a fox lurking in the back woods.

We can only hope that the GOP splits between the RINO's and the TPer's.

None of The Above.


Should have said: NO WAY. NOT EVER!

"We are to be Christ's hands and feet and heart and mind and we cannot do that if we assume God's role of judgment. The judge's job is filled. God alone is judge! Those who would be Saviors of the Church and the people in it are also reminded that the Savior's job has been filled. Jesus Christ filled it once for all. "- Bishop Rodney Michel
