    If the Republican leadership thinks I'll rollover and vote for Romney, they are in for a rude awakening. As a conservative, I refuse to take the liberal Romney as a suitable alternative to Obama. Picking between two evils is not going to work for me. We can cause gridlock for another four years and wait for a better Republican.

    Sadly, I don't think we can. Obama has made it clear he's fully willing to and capable of usurping power and simply operating as a dictator, with no regard for Congress or the structure of the government. And it's also pretty obvious that no one in the government will stand up to him and object.

    Besides, in another four years, it'll be too late to jettison Obamacare. We can't let that happen.

    The US Supreme Court will gut Obamacare this summer.

    You'll excuse me if I don't repose a lot of blind trust in the Supreme Court. I'm not a liberal, after all.

    I'm just curious. What liberal positions of Romney's are a problem for you? I find that many of the attributes being ascribed by the media and left wing to the GOP candidates are not exactly as they seem. Articulate if you will exactly what you, as a conservative, find wrong with Romney.

    I agree. Neither of the 'top tier' candidates are worth casting a vote for, regardless of all the hype from the 'Establishment'. My hope is that we have a brokered convention, maybe these big government idiots will realize that their con game is no longer so easily played.

    And if Obama gets another 4 years, HE will most likely have the opportunity to appoint 2 new justices.

    If he can get them through what is likely to be a Republican controlled Senate.

    As long as we have McCain as a senator, I believe Obama can gets his picks through.

    Oh, yeah, because Republicans are such manly he-men, standing up for their principles like the Rock of Gibraltar. Puhleeze. The entire party doesn't have a complete set of testicles among its members. Just because the media likes to sing Obama's tune of "Republicans are obstructionists" doesn't mean they actually have the guts to really obstruct anything.
