Primary mission: Beating Barack Obama

That should be first and foremost in every single American's mind. On the heels of Mitt Romney's 5 state sweep last night, moving him closer to the official nomination, it is evident there is a stark contrast in ideology among conservatives.

There are those who firmly believe a Mitt Romney presidency would be just as damaging, both short term and long term, as a second Obama term. I find this viewpoint utterly idiotic to be honest.

And there are those, like myself, who believe anything and everything should be done to help Mitt Romney challenge Obama. We acknowledge he isn't the perfect candidate, nor the perfect conservative. We live in an imperfect world and you have to work with what you have.

Liberty At Stake puts it perfectly in "We're All Mitten's Men Now".

"The point is, those of us in the conservative coalition need to get completely behind Romney, now that he is the sure GOP nominee, and do everything possible to help him defeat the Saul Alinsky radical in the White House. Any other position is fundamentally un-conservative. To be conservative is first and foremost to see the world as it is. Four more years of this inept and radical left wing governance from BHO and His Corrupt Gang of Progressiveswould be a complete disaster for the republic. Not casting a vote , or throwing away your vote on a quixotic 3rd party candidate, because Mittens isn’t the perfect conservative, is as good as voting for the Saul Alinsky radical. That’s how the system works. To be conservative is to understand when it is time to suck it up, hitch up the big boy pants, and cooperate to graduate. (Flag thrown for cliché abuse) This is such a time. "

However, there are still those on the right who simply won't support Romney. Even if it means giving Obama another term.

Every day, I take a stroll over to Ron Paul Cult Central, AKA The Daily Paul, partly because half of me still likes Ron Paul and partly because I find the comments and articles from Ron Paul supporters wildly and childishly entertaining. These people take pride in attacking Mitt Romney more than Barack Obama. And they firmly believe Ron Paul still will win. Despite the fact Ron Paul has received the least amount of votes and the least amount of delegates out of the remaining 4 GOP candidates, somehow he still has the best chance of winning the nomination and the general election. The millions of people who voted for Mitt Romney over the course of the primary season just dropped from the sky apparently. Take this for example:

"Let's keep the eye on the prize. We were not expected to do well in Romney territory. But, look at the numbers. We are only growing. The media is starting to recognize our movement. We are about Dr. Paul and we are about a movement. We are not giving up on Dr. Paul and we are not giving up on the movement. The convention in Tampa is one goal but not the only goal. We can still get Dr. Paul the nomination. Don't be fooled by the media. But, keep in mind this is a long "slog" and we are laying the foundation for the future are well. Keep it up everyone. Lick your wounds from yesterday but keep it up and take pride in the work we are doing. Now, stop the chatter, get phone banking, get canvassing, get donating, get going. Go Ron Paul."

The denial and fantasy world they live in over there borders on 2008 Obamabot "free gas/mortgage" insanity. Just remember, there is a conspiracy to silence Ron Paul and he has actually won each state. In Tampa everyone will catch Paulbot Jew-hate hippie fever and be instantly overcome with Ron Paul rainbow flowerpower as he rides a powerful wave of momentum all the way to the White House....

Meanwhile, myself and the rest of those grounded in reality will get behind Romney. Why? Not because we like Romney. Not because we desire a Romney presidency. And not because it is what "The Republicans have told us to do." We will be voting with our conscience too. Our consciences tell us that Obama must be defeated.

Personally, I would prefer that the Judicial Branch not be overrun by radical left Obama appointees for the next 20-30 years. Would you prefer an ultra left supermajority on the Supreme Court?

Barack Obama is no ordinary Democrat. Barack Obama is a radical quasi-Marxist who has been bred from early childhood to hate the colonialism of the United States and the Western nations, the unfairness of capitalism and the free market system, and the "prejudice" of an American society run by white men. This is who Obama is. His arrogance and disdain for America far exceeds that of traditional Democrats like John Kerry or the late Ted Kennedy.

I am a conservative who is in tune with reality. Mitt Romney is our best chance to dethrone Barack Obama and I will fight for him to win with every last breath I have up until election day.

Thanks for the link. Your comment on my place went into a weird bucket. Ever since I integrated Intense Debate with Blogger, comments once in a while get thrown into Blogger's native comment sysytem, but then don't display.

But I digress. All eyes on the prize ... the Saul Alinsky radical in the White House must be defeated.

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, and other meatheads et al: We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.
Here is a model separation agreement:
Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.
You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.--Since you hate guns and we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.
We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.
You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.
We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.
You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, protests, druggies and illegal aliens.
We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks.
We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood
You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
You can have the peaceniks and war protesters, occupiers,letter writers, boy-cotters,etc. And when our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.
We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.
You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness, Jane Fonda,Rosie O'Donnell, Barbara Streisand, Bill Maher, Michael Moore,
Sean Penn, and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.
We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and over-sized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.
You can give everyone healthcare, Obamacare and all the taxing that goes with it if you can find any practicing doctors.
We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.--We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The National Anthem."
I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine", "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing", "Kum Ba Ya" or "We Are the World".
We'll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.
Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.
Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete.
Thank you and Good-bye.

It is quite a stretch to say that there is no difference between Romney and Obama, but watch the far left throw flames on that Paulite meme, hoping to spread distension within the ranks.

Their Supreme Court picks would be quite different, and that is perhaps the biggest factor for me.

Romney is not a small-government guy, I get it. But to compare him to Obama is idiocy.
