What Choice do we have?
By Scott Rohter,  June 2012

Regretfully I have to report today that Mitt Romney has now amassed 1191 delegates who will be going to the Republican National Convention in Tampa. He has now accumulated a sufficient number of delegates to actually win the Republican nomination in August. He only needed 1144 delegates. Texas has put him over the top.

There is almost nobody more anti-establishment than I am. I have been writing articles critical of Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney for over two years, but there are only two choices left in this race now.  They are Barack Obama or Mitt Romney.  I don’t like it any more than you do, but it is the sad truth, and denying it is really tantamount to committing political suicide. I did not vote for Mitt Romney in the Oregon Republican Primary! I voted my conscience until the very last possible minute! But I absolutely will vote for Mitt Romney in the General Election.

At first I supported Michele Bachmann, until she dropped out. Then I tried to stay neutral between Ron Paul and Rick Santorum as long as I could. Finally I came out for Rick Santorum. But now after Romney has accumulated the necessary 1144 delegates to clinch the Republican nomination, a vote NOT for the only person left who is capable of defeating Barack Obama's very progressive agenda, is actually a vote FOR that progressive agenda! Someone really would have to be extremely reckless not to vote for Mitt Romney in November!

I will cut the rest of the States who have still not held their Republican Primaries yet a little bit of slack. But in the General Election THERE REALLY IS NO CHOICE....but to vote for Mitt Romney.  AND I DONT LIKE IT ANY MORE THAN YOU DO. If you don’t believe my Constitutional credentials please visit any of my three websites. http://​​/  or   or    

The only choice we have now to prevent Barack Obama from winning in November is to get behind Mitt Romney. The other course of action that we should all participate in is to work even harder to get the Republican Party under our control, so that next time this doesn’t happen to us again.

In the meantime we must also help to get freedom loving supporters of our Constitutional Republic elected to Congress from all across America, in every Congressional District and State so that no matter who becomes our next President in 2013, they have absolutely no support in Congress to advance their progressive agenda, whether it is Mitt Romney’s slightly progressive agenda, or God forbid, Barack Obama’s very progressive agenda.
