Go Mitt.

i'm thinkin'...

so far, he's the only candidate who aligns with my own ideals - sure i have a problem with his religion, but at least i know it now, rather than several years into his second term like this last potus.

as i've stated before - i'll never again vote based upon a person invoking the name of God.

in my husband's business, they've been ripped off by more "christian" with the fish logo on the truck doors than any other people.

he calls it hiding behind the Lord for the sake of self.

no more.

I've posted my endorsement on my blog as well...GO MITT!

But, it wasn't until Fred had dropped that I was able to make that decision. I liked both.

Nanc, I've said this before, I won't vote for someone purely on their religious beliefs. That does not qualify them for the job.

Oh I don't know. It might be interesting to elect someone that was say, a worshipper of Fine Quality Footwear or a member of the "Archane Order of the Fishhead" to an office just to watch the TV Evangelical types writhe around for a while.

"How many observe Christ's birthday! How few, his precepts! O! 'tis easier to keep Holidays than Commandments."
- Benjamin Franklin

Politicians have been invoking God as proof of their worthiness since before we were america, and it will not quit anytime soon.

While it is true that they will continue to evoke God as proof of their "worthiness" it is not the ONLY criteria.

I won't vote for someone "PURELY", as I said, on their religious beliefs. There are MANY people who have the same religious beliefs that I do that I would NOT vote for.

I like Romney for his character. I like Romney for his experience.
and..I like Romney for his ideals.
and I DO like Romney because he is a religious man...regardless of what those beliefs are.

People who are religious, whatever their beliefs, tend to put more emphasis on something greater than themselves.

Also, as Nanc said, there are people who claim to be religious, who aren't that way on the inside.

OH, and James..."Archane order of the Fishhead"????? You must not be feeling well. ;)

Despite what the pundits (and polls) are saying, I think Romney has a better chance of beating Billary than McCain does.

Well, I agree with you John. Under, McCain, the Republican Party will no longer be the 'Standard Bearer' of Conservatism at all. McCain is a full-blown centrist and he is counting on that to carry him all the way to the White House.

I will be very curious to see what the super-tuesday primaries will say, and even what happens in the Texas primary, which normally, no one pays all that much attention to. I think of all of them now, Mitt is the one that really has a good chance of keeping the Clintoons out of the White House.

I'm afraid Barack is a "fairy tale" and will be steamrolled on Super Tuesday.

Lets hope that "as Main goes, so goes the nation" holds up.

You call that an endorsement?

I'm at the point of simply choosing not to further defame any one particular candidate or the eventual nominee.

Tomorrow is my tern to vote in the primaries. Utah is part of Super Tuesday.

Blogger Kelly said...

Thats "turn" not "tern"...lol

Blogger nanc said...

john - i pumped up your endorsement at curtains.

farmer - bwaaaaaaaaaaaahahahaha! gotcha!

kelly - we're a super tuesday state also, we're "decline to state" so cannot vote in primaries - however, i feel ron paul will take our state as his are the only endorsements i've seen so far here, which would probably give romney an edge elsewhere, i just don't believe he'll do well here.

I'm watching the delegate count...State by State.

kelly...hehehe...

hey farmer!

this is our very own hideout where no one can find us!

...still hiding the kosher salami, I see. You women are all alike...

John, I'd watch this pair if I were you.

Blogger nanc said...

why do you think he goes on hiatus for six months at a time?

bwaaaaaaaaaaaahahahaha!

6:53 PM  
Blogger Kelly said...

Farmer, I think John has a pretty good idea of what he's up against with the two of us...actually, we share this space with another person too...but we won't say who that is, huh, Phelonius??

Anyway, Nanc was pointing out John's endorsement of Mr. Romney.

I am going to be pacing the floor all day tomorrow...super Tuesday.

GO MITT!!!

Just observing everything with a mixture of disbelief, foreboding, and a glimmer of hope.

"Common sense" ain't too common no more--or perhaps it's actually as common as it has always been? (see Juvenal and Machiavelli).

Kelly, it's way past high time to post the Chimera (as current the current state of affairs attest), but I lost the pic you so well crafted (old computer crashed and took all my pic files with it). Can you put it back up again for me to copy?

12:40 PM  
Blogger Kelly said...

John, Here is that chimaera you wanted.

I voted today.

12:57 PM  
Blogger John said...

Thank you Kelly. Romney's looking good... (up by seven last time I checked)

Blogger nanc said...

sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee'z winning in arkansas - can you believe it?

6:41 PM  
Blogger Kelly said...

Sheeee didn't win in Utah...got that right. We DON'T like those Clintons in this State, no sir!

Heeeeee came in third place in Utah when he was first elected. So, it is not surprising that Sheeeeeeeee didn't come out to well here either.

Obama gets Utah as does Romney.

I am expecting the worst but hoping for the best. sigh...its not looking very good so far. McCain is playing dirty.

did you hear that glenn beck has said he'll vote for her if john mccain't is the gop nominee?

those pesky pundits...

10:13 AM  
Blogger nanc said...

p.s. kelly - everything seems suspect, especially after he GAVE the throwdown wv to huckabilly!

i don't know what to believe anymore.

10:14 AM  
Blogger Kelly said...

Nanc, that is precisely what I am talking about.

I can see why Beck said what he did...though I REALLY would not want Hitlary in the Whitehouse. McCain leaves a VERY bad taste in my mouth.

I can't remember where I heard it but someone was saying that they WOULD vote for McCain, but only while holding their nose.

Such as it could be.

Blogger nanc said...

the pundits are telling the left and the rest of u.s. that no matter what there'll probably by a lib in the w.h. next year - perhaps in an attempt to get conservatives to awaken?

4:34 PM  
Blogger Kelly said...

I only hope you are right, Nanc....and that the "awakening" isn't too late.
