A summary of the 'Platform Republican Approach to the 2012 Election'


Both have proposed and implemented socialist schemes for healthcare that establish and consolidate government control of this life-and-death sector of our economic life. With respect to the purported lawfulness of abortion, and enforcement by law of so-called “rights” for homosexuals, both have adopted stances incompatible with the premise that basic human rights are endowed by the Creator, not by government invention. With respect to the use and abuse of judicial power, both have adopted stances that erase the constitutional separation of powers. Both have expressed and acted on the pretense that, per se, judicial opinions have the force of law even when, without warrant of law or constitutional provision, they purport to ignore, alter, innovate, or abolish laws duly enacted by the legislative branch, or constitutional provisions duly ratified by the people.

Obama has done so dramatically with respect to the immigration laws of the United States; and as Commander-in-Chief, by imposing upon military personnel the obligation to accept and show respect for the practice of homosexuality (doing so even though this contravenes the otherwise lawful and indispensable tenets of their conscientious religious belief). On the other hand, Mitt Romney has also contravened the constitutional separation of powers by saying that he will continue Obama’s enforcement of respect for homosexuality in the military; by consistently claiming that, of itself, the judicial opinion of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court compelled his unlawful imposition of gay marriage in Massachusetts; and by declaring, contrary to the requirements of respect for the God-endowed unalienable right to life, that the murder of innocent nascent children “should be lawful” in cases of rape and incest.

Romney and Obama also agree in accepting the provision of purported law that allows the military arrest and indefinite detention of persons by the U.S. government without due process of law; the coercion of religious conscience by government pursuant to implementing specious “abortion rights” in the health sector; and the tyrannical dictation of economic activity that by law requires individuals to purchase health insurance against their will, or subsidize by private contribution health services that contravene their conscience.

Any one of these derogations from the premises of liberty is sufficient, by itself, to destroy, as a matter of fact, the peaceful enjoyment of God-endowed rights that is the purpose for which “governments are instituted among men.” No one loyal to the republican form of government required by the U.S. Constitution can or should vote for or support any candidate whose embrace of such derogatory policies abandons, contradicts, and destroys the foundations for the republican form of government. Therefore, no one loyal to liberty can or should vote for either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney.

The powers-that-be presently in control of the Democrat and Republican parties have thus contrived to offer no choice for liberty in the 2012 electoral contest for President of the United States. People who say that voters “have no choice” but to vote for one or the other of these candidates confirm, by that statement alone, that they have themselves abandoned their birthright as Americans. They also reveal their abandonment of allegiance to the Constitution of the United States. That Constitution provides for three separate and co-equal branches of government, including a legislative branch empowered (by proper vote of a constitutionally-sufficient majority) to oversee, thwart, and even remove from any position of authority under the U.S. Constitution, individuals who fail to respect the provisions and requirements of the republican form of government it demands. The Constitution also reserves the residual sovereign authority of the state governments, and of the people in their respective states, to act in defense of the provisions and requirements of republican government. So the elections for the U.S. House and Senate, as well as the choice of representatives for state and local offices, remain available as critically important means to thwart advancing tyranny.

A summary of the ‘Platform Republican Approach to the 2012 Election’


Good idea. I have been toying with the idea of not even voting. Why bother? We are not a Democratic or Republican nation. We don’t have elections we have selections. A menu at a national restaurant. I refuse to dine on what they have to offer.


Yeah, it’s a sad day when in a free republic and participating in free elections we have to choose between the Muslim and the Mormon and both of them have similar stances. As Alan Keyes pointed out, when people say about this election they don’t like either one, but will vote for the lessor of two evils to get rid of the other, saying something to the effect of, “Well, we don’t have a choice, we have to vote for Romney to get rid of Obama,” they are already admitting we don’t have a choice. If we don’t have a choice, are we truly a free republic?


We are not free. Selecting a new Master every 4 years from a rigged list does not make you free.


Exactly. Maybe we should export this style of the electoral process to other countries. We could remove their dictators and replace them with elected tyrants so they can be as free as we are.

[/quote]Yeah kinda like spreading peace thru undeclared pre emptive war or spreading virginity thru sex…,


Spreading virginity through sex with someone who is HIV positive. Not that the Muslim Brotherhood ruling with Sharia Law isn’t a good form of democracy.


GGGEEEEZZZZZZEEE Surrounded by idiots.


Oh boo hoo hoo. Woe is me. Get over it.

There is a world of difference between Romney and Obama. Is Romney the perfect conservative candidate? No. But he is light years more conservative than Obama is.

The time to try to get your ideal candidate on the ticket is during the primaries. I wanted anyone else but Romney during the primaries. Once those are over, then it is time to get behind the candidate chosen by the party. If you don’t like that then tough. As the Stones sing, “You can’t always get what you want.”

If you don’t vote or vote 3rd party then you have no right to complain if Obama gets reelected.

Lord Have Mercy son, there is NO IDEAL candidate, and no ideal solution to any problem. Platforms are contrived at best. We have 300 million people each with his/her own aganda and none equal to the next. Romney is as close to a fiscal candidate as we are going to get, and I have no problem with him per se [hate that phrase] but as a conservative [NON PAULIAN} I look to the constitutional plank in the platform and little of it is there. As a matter of fact, has anybody heard what the full republican plarform is?


No, it’s just a multi paneled mirror.


Now, why would you ask a question and answer it yourself?


It is call rhetoric. It is also done during speeches. It is all part of the rhetorical discourse. Ever hear of a rhetorical question?

Rhetoric - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Alan Keyes is a complete enigma to me. I agree with a lot of what he says, yet I also have read about his strong neoconservative connections. I think he may be an infiltrator, at least that is what the Constitution Party thought of him in 2008.


Yeah, well it gets on my nerves. And what is* call rhetoric* anyway?


You are going to nitpick a mistype? I can see why you don’t like Romney now. Does anyone measure up to your standards?


I used to say the same thing and then I woke up. Remember your post when the weapons bans get enacted under the reign of Romney. Never forget these people are antihuman demons in suits.




Vote my way or you have no rights to speech or opinion! Now, that’s democracy! It’s the same type electing Arab Spring leaders. May I suggest a name change? How about ShariaOnPersianCoast.


Just like the Liberals…you can have freedom of speech as long as it is what they want you to say. A la Chick fil a…
