ANYBODY BUT ROMNEY

The year is 1999.
Clinton’s cigars and his mistress’ stained dresses are all that’s on the media’s mind. Christian conservatives are as giddy as a five-year-old on the eve of a Disney vacation. They are itchin’ to put an “R” in the White House.
Their rallying cry? “Anybody but Clinton.”
Nevermind that Texas Governor G. W. Bush endorsed abortion in cases of rape, incest, and maternal health. Nevermind that he appointed pro-abortion candidates to the judicial bench when he was governor of Texas. Nevermind that he endorsed same-sex “civil unions,” which was basically marriage by another name. Anybody but Clinton.
When G.W. Bush won the White House from Bill Clinton, he did things that only Clinton could dream of doing. Bush
•- Increased federal spending … at the fastest rate in 30 years
•- Increased farm subsidies and other welfare programs
•- Increased funding of abortion and Planned Parenthood to record-high levels
•- Increased government control of education, which was a colossal failure
•- Increased funding for the National Endowment of the Arts (remember the crucifix in a jar of urine, or the bullwhip penetrating the sodomite?)
•- Promoted more open sodomites to public office
•- Installed John Roberts to Supreme Court, who had worked to further the homosexual agenda
•- Installed Sam Alito to the Supreme Court, who had issued five radical pro-abortion rulings (including ruling that New Jersey’s Partial Birth Abortion ban was “unconstitutional” and cited Roe v. Wade approvingly in the process)
•- Passed the largest entitlement program in a generation, hastening Medicare’s bankruptcy
Bush’s liberal policies while governor of Texas dwarfed compared to his exploits as president.
Why couldn’t Clinton do these things? Because of a Republican Congress. How could Bush do these things? Because of a Republican Congress! The Republicans resisted Clinton’s leftist agenda, but stood faithfully by their man G. W. Bush when he outdid the socialist programs of Marxist Bill Clinton.
Fast-forward to 2012.
“Anybody but Obama” is now the motto of all the conservatives who are lining up to hold their noses and endorse Mitt Romney.
though Romney single-handedly, illegally, and unconstitutionally
put Massachusetts on the map as the first state to hand out marriage
licenses to same-sex couples.
• Even though he passed Romneycare which included $50 co-pay, taxpayer-funded abortions – all of this supposedly three years after his “pro-life conversion.”
• Even though under Romney’s leadership, employment in Massachusetts was the worst in the nation and the size of the state government grew to astronomical proportions.
you judge a candidate by what he does and not what he says on the campaign
trail, who would be the face of legalized gay marriage, tax-payer funded
child-killing, and BIG government?
Romney could run as Obama’s running mate, and yet Christian conservatives have the audacity to hold their noses and endorse this man? If they had lived in Germany in the 1930’s, would they have endorsed Nazism for fear of Communism? Would they have voted for Hitler as the lesser-of-two-evils over the Boogeyman Stalin?
Answer that question, Gary Bauer, Richard Land, James Dobson, Franklin Graham, Jerry Falwell, Cal Thomas, Pat Robertson, Tony Perkins, Paul Weyrich, Dr. John Willke, Patrick Mahoney, Marvin Olaski, and all you other Judases who’ve betrayed your cause and your people for a seat at the RINO table?
If Christians follow their pathetic finger-in-the-wind leaders to the polls to pull the lever for Romney, we will well-publicize our indictment. The salt’s loss of savor will have been broadcast to all. Judgment will begin at the House of God, and we deserve it.

best hope for freedom is not in Washington, D.C. It’s in our living
rooms, our churches, and our statehouses. We must prepare our families
and churches for the looming judgment. States must exercise their sovereignty
and ban abortion,
resist federal control over healthcare and education, and put our Ten
Commandments monuments back up in our halls and schoolhouses.
We must get our kids out of the godless government schools. We must get our people off of the federal handouts. We must build local and state governments that can sustain us when the federal government goes bankrupt and the dollar implodes, when the entitlement checks stop coming in and the rioters start wreaking havoc, and when God’s gavel falls against us for the shedding of innocent blood.
When we rebuild, let’s rebuild not on the shifting sands of relative morality, secular humanism, and pragmatism. Let’s rebuild on the sure foundation of the Word of God, the standard of morality and justice without which posterity will not be free.
