- keeping Ramsay as his heir, knowing that Ramsay will kill any legitimate son he has with his Frey wife in the future.
- getting rid of Ramsay, and waiting for a heir from his Walda, knowing that he is quite old, that he may die soon, and that a young lord is a very bad thing.
I don't remember exactly his dialogue with Theon, but it seems to me that he chose the first option.
So, I think it's very unlikely that he ends up killing Ramsay. But the other way is possible.

But Rams is the only Bolton heir, also he can marry Arya, and he's a cunning and ruthless warrior. Roose will keep him around, unless shit really hits the fan (in which case killing RAmsay wont achieve much anyway).
Also, OP: next time could you be more legible? Your post reads like gibberish at times.

I think the only reason Ramsay is still alive is because Roose is using him as a tool. Once his usefulness is gone, so will his life be.

Roose won't kill Ramsay either. I don't think he wants to be a kinslayer, and as he has said young kid lords are the bane of any house and it's probably a good thing that Ramsay will kill them off.
To be honest, I don't think either one is going to make it out of TWOW. I'm guessing Roose will be killed by someone else (maybe Mance or someone loyal to Manderley?) and Ramsay I'm guessing is slated for Jon. Either Jon or Theon as has been said above, but I'm sticking with Jon and the bastard showdown for now.

His words to Theon were done in the expectation that Ramsay would hear them, thereby lulling Ramsay into a false sense of security. Remember Roose is only in his mid-50s, and is the biggest hypochrondiac in Westeros: he is not expecting to die soon.
