Newt Gingrich Will Not be the GOP Nominee

newt gingrich

This is a bold editorial opinion on the part of this writer, but don’t bet on Newt Gingrich going all the way to the White House or even to win the Republican nomination.

First off, both the news media and the Republican Establishment is pushing Mitt Romney. It’s his turn in the establishment’s thinking and, as we should all know by now, the Republican Party is really not a bastion of conservatism, pro-life and lower taxes. They’re as much for big government as the Democrats ever were as long as they are the ones in power. They feel it’s their turn to win back the Presidency and prefer someone like Romney because he’s pretty much a paper cut out that will do as he’s told to do by those in control and someone who may win an election solely on the basis of not being too controversial.  In other words, he looks the part on television.

Newt Gingrich, unfortunately, comes across to many Americans as a self-serving blow hard but who has the ability to respond quickly and slyly to questions from leftist reporters on a national debate stage. He’s where he is because he’s a “slicker talker” than Texas Governor Rick Perry but, make no mistake about it, Newt Gingrich is all about big government which is okay with the Republican powers that be, but they’re afraid, he won’t be able to win a national election.  So, the Republican Establishment will likely  join with the news media and do all they can to plow Gingrich under as they did initially with Rick Perry. In the early going while CNN was saying Perry conducted himself well in the debates, it was FOX News that said, “Perry vomited all over himself.”

Then along came the nagging hypocrite Michelle Bachmann who, even though she voted for in-state tuition for the children of illegals while serving in the Minnesota State Senate in 2005, went “ballistic” about the 2001 Act of the Texas Legislature concerning the same issue but was then able to use it as a means to unfairly accuse Texas Governor Rick Perry of being soft on illegal immigration. Her whole campaign is solely about attacking her fellow Republicans.

Everyone knows Ron Paul is a Libertarian who is using the Republican brand because he knows a third party candidacy has little chance of succeeding.  If he succeeds, so be it, but many disagree with his foreign policy pronouncements especially after September 11, 2001.

Of course, that leaves Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and John Huntsman. Of those three only Rick Perry has the experience to protect the border and knows how to govern. Perry is the longest serving and most-elected Governor in the history of Texas, the nation’s second largest state, with enough electoral votes necessary and important enough to carry a national election.

It would seem to this writer if the choice is going to be between big government and small government, that the best chance for the future of our nation is to rally for Rick Perry and send him to Washington, D.C. as our next President.

      ACEMAN, you obviously don’t know who this author is, Eugene(Gene)Vallorani, writer, commentator, Radio and media Host – and the very esteemed uncle of Brandon Vallorani also renowed writer in his own right. We are among greatness here and you ought to respect that. I am appreciating all his wonderful articles and pray he is continually blessed in all he does.

      Oh, and I forgot to mention that Eugene Vallorani is a great American Patriot, Conservative and highly principled Christian man of strong values and deep faith. God bless you Gene.

      Please do your friggin’ research if you don’t beleive me:

      16 LIES FROM GINGICH AT THE DECEMBER THIRD HUCKABEE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL FORUM:

      Gingrich Lie #1: The draft doesn’t undermine the rule of law and therefore my immigration plan based on the Selective Service model doesn’t either.

      Proof: The Thirteenth Amendment:

      Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.

      To be fair, illegal immigrants did commit a crime. But as such, they should be treated the same as all other lawbreakers, i.e., given a real JURY TRIAL.

      Gingrich Lie #2: The Jury Trial necessarily has friends and neighbors of the defendant deciding his fate. This is because the Founders distrusted Judges.

      Proof: The Jury is chosen from a pool. Those shown to have a conflict of interest (i.e., friends and neighbors) are rejected or replaced.

      The Founders may have distrusted Judges, but they really distrusted some of the laws that the defendant may have broken. Just because a law is Constitutional does not mean it is always just in every case.

      Gingrich Lie #3: I backed the mandate only when it was proposed by the Heritage Foundation, and only in opposition to HillaryCare.

      Proof: Gingrich said in May of this year that “I agree [with Obama and Romney] that all of us have a responsibility to pay–help pay for health care,” and “I’ve said consistently we ought to have some requirement that you either have health insurance or you post a bond”.

      Just because he didn’t use the word ‘Mandate’ does not mean he didn’t describe one.

      Gingrich Lie #4: I never favored ‘Cap and Trade’.

      Proof: On 2/15/07, Gingrich said, “I think if you have mandatory carbon caps combined with a trading system, much like we did with sulfur, and if you have a tax-incentive program for investing in the solutions, that there’s a package there that’s very, very good. And frankly, it’s something I would strongly support.”

      The difference between ‘strongly support’ and ‘favor’ is negligible.

      Semantics: I never favored one VERSION of ‘Cap and Trade’.

      Gingrich Lie #5: I got to four balanced budgets in our lifetime.

      Proof: The Budget has not been balanced since 1957. Every year since has had a deficit. The appearance of a balanced budget comes from the fact that Government borrowed money from itself and called it revenue. The fine print of Social Security legislation says payroll taxes are treated as revenue and not retirement funds. Money was siphoned from entitlements (contributing to their insolvency), which is not counted in the baseline.

      Gingrich Lie #6: I pushed through the biggest entitlement reform in our lifetime.

      Proof: Welfare reform changed welfare from an entitlement to a subsidy. Instead of being entitled to money for nothing, recipients had to find work after two years of receiving funds. Social Security and Medicare went largely untouched. Not to be too harsh on Gingrich, it could be argued that this was the biggest POSITIVE reform of ONE entitlement, and rightly so. In the process, however, welfare was legitimized.

      Gingrich Lie #7: I helped shrink the Federal Government.

      Proof: Gingrich voted for bills that made it past the President’s desk increasing the size and scope of HUD, HHS, EPA, FEMA, VA, Interior Dep., State Dep., Defense Dep., Energy Dep., and Education Dep. (which he helped to create).

      He supported:

      Fairness Doctrine
      Amendment to create a National Police
      One of the largest increases in Education Dep. ($3.5 B)
      Tax dollars to pay for abortions
      $45 B in Foreign Aid in 1994
      Undeclared Wars

      Gingrich Lie #8: Education decisions should go back to the states.

      Proof: What he said outside of the brackets is true, but his record speaks differently. He helped James Earl Carter to create the Department of Education back in 1979. He voted for one of the largest increases in Federal education spending in 1996 ($3.5 Billion), supported No Child Left Behind (though not in Congress) and in 2009 galavanted across the country with Al Sharpton and Arne Duncan in support of Obama’s education plan.

      Gingrich Lie #9: I want to get rid of the EPA and replace it with an ESA.

      Proof: Replacing the EPA with something else is the same as just renaming it. Most EPA regulations are pursuant to legislation (some of which Gingrich voted for). Unless these acts are repealed, any agency taking the EPA’s place will serve the same purpose. There are some 50 acts that directly affect the EPA and the way it is run. Most or all of them would need to be repealed in order to reverse the economic damage done.

      Gingrich Lie #10: The Tenth Amendment allows the Federal government to enforce the will of the people (as interpreted by the Feds, of course) against the states.

      Proof: The Tenth Amendment prohibits the Federal government from exercising powers not mentioned in the Constitution. It also was meant to protect the rights of citizens NOT delegated to a state by its own constitution. So, if a state constitution grants that state authority over education in that state, it may be the sole arbiter.

      Gingrich Lie #11: The President is the leader of the American people, and the head of the government.

      Proof: People are sovereign individuals and all elected officials are public servants. The President is the head only of the Executive branch, not the entire government. Constitutionally, the Executive branch is on equal footing with the Judicial and Legislative branches. The powers of the President are limited to appointing figureheads, and executing the law, and various combinations thereof.

      Gingrich Lie #12: You CAN have it both ways; there is a fundamental difference between the Executive branch pressuring states and the Congress handing down mandates to states.

      Proof: Constitutionally, Presidents may only,

      Be Chief Commander of the military
      Require opinions from department heads on subjects relating to their duties
      Pardon Federal offenses
      Make Treaties with Senate cooperation
      Nominate Ambassadors, Judges and positions established [pursuant to the Constitution]
      Fill vacancies

      Gingrich Lie #13: What I said was accurate. Our country must take action to address climate change. If enough of us demand action from our leaders, we can spark the innovation we need.

      Proof: No consensus on climate change exists. Regardless, climate change might not be anthropogenic. One country could not reverse it. Demanding action from our leaders has historically not worked. If it did, they would be known as ‘public servants’, not ‘leaders’. Only the private sector can spark innovation.

      Gingrich Lie #14: People hated the Pelosi add because she was so radioactive.

      Proof: People hated it because they are suspicious of ‘bipartisanism’, government insiders from any party, and politics in the scientific arena. They hated the fact that someone claiming to be a conservative would do a favor for Al Gore and nearly swap spit with a certain Catholic grandmother. They hated it because they smelled a rat. The rat wasn’t Former Speaker Pelosi (although she is). It was Former Speaker Gingrich.

      Gingrich Lie #15: My book, Contract with the Earth, was an effort to argue that pro-market solutions would lead to a better environment.

      Proof: While it is true that Pro-Market solutions are best because innovation is sparked by the private sector, and that the book uses Pro-Market terminology, the book’s five main objectives, to Demand Objectivity; Educate and Inspire; Encourage Green Enterprise; Give, Help, and Share; and Think Long Term, amount to mandates, subsidies, and brainwashing.

      *Gingrich Lie #16: My favorite Founding Father is George Washington.

      Proof: Newt has done his very best to emulate the following qualities of the following men: overemphasis of the strength and size of the Federal government (a la Alexander Hamilton), stabbing of the country in the back (a la Benedict Arnold), profiteering off of the country’s misfortune (a la Aaron Burr), and a voracious culinary/sexual appetite, and a reputation for intellectual self-aggrandizement (a la Benjamin Franklin).

      *Satire throughout, but my assertions stand.

    • Jackie

      I don’t know who this guy is either so I have no idea what his agenda might be. He is certainly entitled to his opinion but it won’t be influencing my final choice and it shouldn’t anyone else’s either.

    • Denny

      I do not want Mitt R. He is one of the good ol boys, and I am sick of the good ol boys in any party. But take a look at what the Democrats dis to Herman Cain. Can’t have a black conservitive running can we. Did anyone here research the women that made those accusations, the last one with her 13 years? You should. Not that it will do any good now.

    • Dancer2

      I am truly tired of hearing about poor, black Herman Cain; Cain was never going to be it because his lack of knowledge on too many important issues. Ron Paul is the only true, conservative running. Romney & Newt are golfing buddies and two peas in the same pod; career politicians that will do nothing to help move our great country back to what it was. If either of them get elected to can take it to the bank that our country is just as done as with Obama.

    • rotor 700

      vote Ron Paul

    • John

      > rotor 700– Vote Ron Paul if you want another 4 years of the usurper in office now!! Use your head, rotor700.

    • Ellie

      If Rick Perry was so good why do they have so many illegals in Texas? The person that wrote this wasn’t thinking correctly. I don’t like Mitt or Newt as both are for giving illegals citizenship, when some are drug pushers etc, they broke the law and shouldn’t be rewarded for doing it. We need someone with backbone to stand up and be counted on to do what needs to be done.

    • James Mo

      BREE Maybe so, about the ”greatness” of this author but
      ACEMAN or anybody else DOES NOT HAVE TO SWALLOW EVERYTHING AND EVENTUALLY, PEOPLE HAVE THEIR OWN OPINIONS….. Sorry you do not seem to have yours!

    • Bree

      Wrong James, I very much have my own opinions and I have stated them as such. I just happen to agree with this writer and you don’t. And may I remind you that I do have a right to my opinion whether you like it or not. People like you are unbelievable and clueless.

    • Phil

      I don’t know if anyone running can beat Obama. Ronmey and Newt. are to much like Demoncrats. That said any of the canidiates who won’t show up for the Trump debate are to weak to debate Obama and to weak be president. If they’re afraid of Trump how can they deal with some of our enemies. Maybe Trump can keep this debate on the issues that count and not the mud fights of the past debates.

    • burt

      Mitt Romney has the best chance to be elected. I believe him to be a moderate with enough experience in the business community to shape the programs which will make America a strong economical force once again. He also has much more governing experience than the left leanin blow hard in the White House now. We must also give Mr Romney a Republican controlled Senate and House so that we do not have Grid Lock

    • John

      Wow, was that written by a Dummycrap in “sheeps clothing” or what!! Truth of the matter is this… If you want a man who can create jobs, has a great sense of business and looks very Presidential, then Mitt Romney is your man. But, don’t forget this man’s flip-flop on the 3 biggest issues in our country… 1. Gay marriage 2. woman’s rite to choose 3. our 2nd Amendment and our rite to bear arms.

      On the other hand, if you desire smaller Gov’t a man who truly is Conservative and has stuck to many of his principals, then Newt is your man!

      However, either of these 2 men are a great choice and both of whom can beat Obama in the election!! What all these op ed articles fail to comment on is ANY REPUBLICAN SHOULD BE YOUR CHOICE IN THE 2012 ELECTION!!
      ANY ONE BUT OBAMA!!!

    • rotor 700

      Newt is not for small government, he is all about large government, and more of it. In addition you cannot trust this man at all.

    • Dancer2

      Newt conservative; he is a self serving Rino. But, as with others all the juicy truth is about to come out about him. He would sell his own mother if he were paid enough! Wake up sheeple!!!

    • bluejacket

      My problem with Newt, which is the same template I would lay over any candidate is his support or lack thereof of the Second Amendment, and illegal immigration. No, America doesn’t have any financial problems, so let’s give away all of my Social Security contributions to law breakers, so it will be broke.

    • http://patriotupdate littlepat

      Time to do a little research. Yesterday I wanted to see more about Newt and the 2nd amendment so I went to “Newt.org” and scanned through sev. pages and then – there it was- Newt is pro 2nd amendment and has signed the pledge. He is all about citizens gun rights.

    • Hank is back

      You trust Newt to tell you, on his own site, to vote for him?

      Genius.

      Newt’s record on the 2nd is appalling, some meaningless, easily broken ‘pledge’ notwithstanding.

    • http://none John Weimer

      I agree, and show me a person that doesn`t make some mistakes, here and there, and I will show you a person who isn`t doing anything. I am sure Newt will do something here and their that you or I won`t agree with. He is not perfect, nor are you or I. But, his enemies or his advisors will not easily pull the wool over his eyes. He will not be a pupit as our present president. He will honor the Constitution. He does have the wisdom and experience, unlike the present president. He can handle himself in a discussion, withour a telepromter. He will not be bowing to our enemies. Of course, as he attempts to balance our budget and cut spending, deals with immigration, there will be riots in the streets, by those who are illegal, nor work, living off the government (tax payers), and other liberal groups. I am sure we will hear no good about him from the above. I am not even sure if the Nation can recover. But Newt will give it his best.

    • http://www.TheLatiNews.com Frederick Machado

      Of course that you are biased against Gingrich. I bet one dollar with you, and if Newt is the nominee, you loose. I believe on the statistics as a science, and they say something different. Thus, we know what you are doing, trying to erode the will of people that know, Obama will be defeated.

    • Dale

      ACEMAN, Check out the web site http://www.jbs.org There is a vedio commentary on the real Newt Gingrich it profiles his congressional record which you can verify for your self. Gingrich can not be trusted he proved that while he was in congress.

  • Gene Vallorani

    I can assure anyone who reads my article I am NOT a Democrat. I was a long time ago but have long since left that party because I am pro-life small government conservative. Along the way my evolution to conservatism grew strong. The point of the article is that the RNC (Republican Establishment) for the most part is really not interested in small government and have used abortion as a wedge issue and have now taken the Tea Party for granted. We don’t need a Rino and neither do we need another term for Obama. If we really want a small government conservative in the White House we have to seize the day and rally behind someone who is a God-fearing, trustworthy conservative. If we don’t like how Governor Perry talks we can all chip in and buy him a teleprompter. Why throw in the towel and find ourselves voting for the lesser of two evils when we have the power to put the right person in the White House. The establishment and the media is trying to divide and conquor the conservative movement. Stay and fight for the cause not settle for anyone who is a “slick talker.”

    • bnjohanson

      Gene:

      Couldn’t there be a chance that Newt, who I believe loves this country and is 100% contrarian to Obama’s policies, will not waste this opportunity to carry the torch of Reagan and be most effective in reversing/repealing Obama’s policies?

    • RoBoTech

      Because Perry is an Amnesty Hound, and it sounds like you are too.
      You are NOT a “Rule of Law” Conservative, so take that crap over to Huff N’ Puff.
      Sorry, I think you are a poser.

    • James D Miller

      Which is why I don’t trust (slick talker) Romney. I also don’t trust Ron Paul, seems like an isolationist-leave the forces of evil alone type of guy. Frankly the only one that I thought would have been an execellent, albeit outsider, president is Herman Cain, until the dark forces destroyed him. I don’t know who dredged up and paid these women to say all these untrue things, but suspect the RNC. That really leaves Newt, the ultimate govt insider, who I think would do a good job, but I do worry about his big govt view. The trouble with politics in this country today, is it is not about the best man for the job, it is about who the big money powerful (shadow govt) men who really pull the strings and make the puppets dance. If you have a way to get a true patriot elected, lay it out.

    • rotor 700

      Romney and Newt cannot be trusted, and will give us all more of the same big governent that is against constitution. If you enjoy fighting all the evil in wars we do not win then these two would do the job for you. You surly do not understand the word Isolationism. No one that I know of is proposing this. I would guess that you like most Americans like the same crap in government and have come to love big government, and loss of liberty.

    • Dancer2

      If you guys were really paying attention you would know that Ron Paul is NOT AN ISOLATION, he is a non-interventionist. In other words stop all these wars and let all of us take care of our own business but he believes in a strong national defense and IF the U.S. were threatened we would defend ourselves. Problem is that too many don’t REALLY LISTEN!

    • Vince

      I have given up hope. Let these people cannibalize each other after the collapse. I will just commit suicide instead of living in a world like that.

    • A.L.

      so, bachman changed her mind about the illegls. well, i dont believe people do change their mind. I think once do believe one way,that is the way you will always believe!! Well, MR. Jean i am glad YOU never had to change your mind. I have always been a republican,like you and i we have never changed,like bachman,on illegals.

    • Dolores Tamoria

      I do not believe you are a Tea Partier. You are a Right Wing Flake. You are the divider.
      If you are what you say you are you would stick to the principles of the Tea Party Movement. The Tea Party should not try to pick anyones candidate. The vote is a private matter. I think we are intelligent enough to know who the RINO’s support. That is why they tried to get the New Jersey Governor to run but instead got him to support Mitt Romney. Stick to your own guns Tea Partiers. The Cockroaches are coming out of the woodwork and the Rats are deserting the Ship.

    • Dancer2

      Guess we will see when the election if over! God help our country is all I can say. And, this is still a free country with free speech so while others are PROMOTING Romney or Newt I certainly have the right to promote Ron Paul!!! RON PAUL 2012 OR NONE AT ALL!!!

    • Vince

      The pseudoconservatives have voted you down. I gave you a thumb’s up, what little it could do. Patriotupdate…yea, right.

    • Hank is back

      Damn Straight.

    • Randy131

      I don’t know who you are either, but I must say I agree with you, and it is my hope that Rick Perry can make a come-back from his gaffes, which you must admit he has had a few. I also think he is the best man for the job of President, among all the Republican hopeful, mainly because he is for smaller government and is a true Christian, who will do as he says and not be able to be controlled by the others who try to hold power over us all, including over those who run our government, and they are there, hidden in the backround, pulling the strings of power. But if not Rick Perry, then I also have to pull for Newt Gingrich, who though he may be a big government aficionado, at least knows what to do to revive the economy and make it work, and also knows how important it is to balance the budget and has the experience to do so. So keep trying to revive Rick Perry’s chances, for I’m all for that, but if you can’t, then I’m hoping for Newt, but never Romney, Huntsman, Paul, or Bachman, but Santorum isn’t bad, but hasn’t the backing nor notoriety to make it, he’s in it for the VP position I believe. Good luck with your endeavor and may GOD bless your intentions and make them successful.

    • http://patriotupdate littlepat

      I’m afraid Obama will make Perry (whom I like) look like a fool on the debate stage and that will just finish him. I’m sorry but I don’t want to take the chance. It’s too important. We must defeat Obama. I’m going with Newt.

    • Dale

      Gene and All. please check out all the records. Rick Perry as governor of Texas by exucutive order mandated that all 11 & 12 year old girls to get the GARDISIL vaccenation Tto date over 300,000 have had serious side efects and there has been a couple of hundred death atributed to gardisil, and what about the Buildaburger confrence he attended. By there records there are only three true conservitives thats Michele Backman, Ron Paul and Gary Johnson. Please don’t vote for anyone the main stream media supports and for the polls thats just a bunch of paid air heads trying to sway the election tword business as usual canidates. Remember the media and polsters promotion of Obama you see what we got

  • Paul

    While I agree with most of what this article says, I will take exception to the statement about Ron Paul.
    Dr. Paul’s foreign policy stance may run counter to current Republican orthodoxy, but that doesn’t leave him outside the party. If John McCain can be a Republican, or Olympia Snowe, or Scott Brown… then Ron Paul can be too. In fact, wouldn’t you rather side with Dr. Paul than Snowe or Brown??
    And while he may be a Libertarian he is also a Republican, and it is wrong to say he is only a Republican candidate because it offers him a better chance to be elected. Dr. Paul has worked very hard for Texas and America over the last 40 years… and he is nothing if not honest.

    • CET

      Finally, someone who makes sense. Why don’t you write articles. The above makes no sense whatsoever, unless you are a big government communist.

    • http://yahoo Old GI

      Dr paul may honest, but his foreign policy is nuts! This is the 21st century. You cant pull in the waters and declare that the US is no longer going to participate in the world at large. That’s crazy. As the only remaining superpower we have a obligation to be the exceptionists. Paul may be honest but he is absolutely missed the bus!

    • rotor 700

      Then you propose continuing these wars to know where, and killing our people off like pawns in a chess match? WE gained nothing from Iraq, and Afghanistan, and will gain nothing by getting involved in more foolishness that hates us and always will. We need to be booting Muslims from the USA as well as all illegals to clean our the garbage. The Muslims In case you do not know are here to grow their numbers, and take over and introduce Shariah law. I guess the have already succeeded as Americans have been dumbed down so bad for the last 30 years. We need to worry more about the muslims at home, than in the rest of the world. America has cancer,its called Islam,and the cure is not more of it.

    • Steve

      Dr. Paul’s foreign policy is no more isolationist than the policy of other major first world nations. Do we still need thousands of troops stationed in Germany, who were originally there to help respond to a Russian attack? Does anyone understand the “mission” in Afghanistan, and if you say it is to keep the Taliban busy fighting on their turf then WHY has there been ZERO support for improved border security for the past decade?? This nation has NEVER prevented another nation from getting nuclear capablity. We did not even attack North Korea when they broke treaty agreements and got one, and that was considered prudent on the part of Clinton at the time. Do we actually think Iran is so stupid as to not have their main nuclear capability deep underground and immune from attack anyway? They will get nuclear capability whether we want that or not. Netanyahu himself said that Israel is perfectly capable of defending themselves in that region of the world, and does not need the type of meddling in their border negotiations that the U.S. has done for years. Conservatives have been influence by Neo-Conservative thought that the U.S. needs to fight pre-emptive wars for freedom all over the world. The Neo-Cons (including Senators McCain and Graham) have declared the whole world (including the United States) a battlefield in this War on Terror, which is nothing more than perpetual war for perpetual peace (to use Orwell’s term).

      It is a fact that more active duty personnel have contributed to Ron Paul’s campaign than to that of any other candidate from either party, both in this election and in the last one. It is also a fact that Dr. Paul is very likely the most popular candidate for the U.S. presidency among populations of most countries around the world. If you don’t believe that claim just look at the results from international polling in the 2008 campaign:

      Ron Paul has been ignored, jeered, and attacked by the U.S. media, but the rest of the world respects him as Americans would if he were to be given the opportunity to make his views understood rather than being taken out of context in soundbytes. He is NOT an internationalist as are Gingrich, Perry, and even (to some extent) Romney, and his policies, unlike theirs, might just save this country from becoming a third world country by 2020.

    • McClarinJ

      I’ll tell you what’s nuts, it’s thinking that our economy is going to survive the giant whirlpool that is now devouring Europe, that we can keep borrowing hundreds of billions from communist China so we can afford to “make the world safe for democracy.”

      Paul accurately predicted the housing collapse, including the causes and the far-reaching effects on the world economy. He also predicts that the US will bring the troops home soon enough because our economy will be in ruins and we won’t be able to afford military actions that are not vital to the defense of America.

      So, Old GI,

      Are Wilson, FDR, and truman your heroes?

      Is the Constitution a living breathing document?

      Would you agree with Newt Gingrich who said

      “The American challenge in leading the world is compounded by our Constitution. Under our system — either we’re going to have to rethink our Constitution, or we’re going to have to rethink our process of decision-making.”

      And

      “I am for the United Nations.”

  • Camery

    Aside from the agenda of this article being one Christian backing another Christian and simply supporting Rick Perry there is nothing more here.
    So far as who is electable and who isn’t, when the word goes out that any candidate is not electable that candidate is the one to vote for since he/she has an agenda the authorities are afraid of.
    By far the best agenda is Ron Paul and my only reason for not voting for him is because he has too much to lose in his family life and for that reason he has shown some very definate weaknesses. I certainly wish he was stronger.
    I am not going to vote for Rick Perry because I suspect he is using conscience methods to promote himself. I do not agree with some of his methods of governing such as innoculations of young teenage girls against the wishes of the parents which is absolutely anti Christion.

      THE DESTRUCTION HAS ALREADY STARTED, LOOK FOR OBAMA TO DECLARE MARSHALL LAW BEFORE THE ELECTION AND CANCEL THE ELECTION AND INSTALL HIMSELF AS LORD AND MASTER

    • Vince

      MARTIAL, DAMMIT. And quit screaming. If he does that, hell will have no fury. To him, I say, “Bring it on.”

    • Hank is back

      These are the scenarios…

      Obama wins and establishes Martial Law. He carries on with the same crap he has done for four more years. Congress is sent home. The people revolt. The people win and the Republic is re-establsihed as founded.

      Obama wins and establishes Martial Law. He carries on with the same crap he has done for four more years. Congress is sent home. The people revolt. The revolt is co-opted by faux -conservatives and the republic is restored to what it was like in Early 2008, but continues down the faux-conservative path.

      Obama wins and establishes Martial Law. He carries on with the same crap he has done for four more years. Congress is sent home. The people revolt. The revolt is squashed by the military and the federal police forces.

      Obama wins and doesn’t establish Martial Law. He carries on with the same crap he has done for four more years. The Congress, for political rather than moral or Constitutional reasons opposes his every move.

      Gingrich wins and increases the strength of the federal Police force, ostensively to fight terror. The budget is not balanced. Much tyrannical law is still enforced. The Congress for political rather than moral or Constitutional reasons supports his every move, even when his actions and motives are liberal, elitist, globalist, unconstitutional, immoral, or expensive.

      Romney wins and starts a trade war, and perhaps a ground war with China. The budget is not balanced. Much tyrannical law is still enforced. The Congress for political rather than moral or Constitutional reasons supports his every move, even when his actions and motives are liberal, elitist, globalist, unconstitutional, immoral, or expensive.

      Ron Paul wins, all vestiges of Martial Law are removed, the budget is balanced, and Israel’s hand is free to deal with Iran on their own, which they are more than capable of. His every move is in accordance with the Constitution, so whether he is opposed by Congress or not (and they will support him most of the time for political reasons), the law of the land will be upheld.

      I am prepared for each and every one of these scenarios, so the bad ones are all the same to me. That is why, rather than supporting the lesser of two evils, I will support the greatest good.

      Anyone that is not prepared for any one of these scenarios is being foolish, and I hope they reconsider their support for the lesser of two evils.

    • Bree

      Interesting but there maybe one more scenerio to consider closer to reality and that is- Ron Paul wins, riots and violence explodes from one end of the country to the other by blacks joined with muslims waiting for the call. Israel prempts a strike on Iran, Iran retaliates against them and the US, placing ships in the Gulf and cutting off the oil supplies. Iran declares war on the US and muslim cells in this country begin terrorist activities that our unprepared country cannot contain meanwhile the middle east is called to war after we have just brought all our troops home to a wrecked and ruined country that not even Ron Paul can fix in any amount of time and taking years to recover. Six months into this mess, Ron Paul dies. We are way past the breaking point for anyone like Ron Paul to ever begin to save again. While I don’t wish this on anyone, I’m a realist and the handwriting is on the wall. If Obama doesn’t win, the fury of hell will implode and who do you really think is going to stand against it? If you think this will be a cakewalk, think again. We are at that kind of tipping point.

    • Hank is back

      Why would a riot happen under Paul, but not the others, in particular?

      Ron paul wouldn’t stand in Israel’s way. If Israel does this, they will get the job done and leave no room for retaliation. Iran couldn’t retaliate if they tried. We won’t need Iranian or and other oil from the mideast, but if we did, it is their oil, so they are free to do what they want with it.

      Our troops will be home to protect us, the borders will be closed, and who gives a crap f the mideast tears itself apart? They will do it whether we have troops there or not.

      The President has the best medical care in the world. Ron Paul is a doctor and is healthy. Don’t let his age fool youy. His vice president will be identical to him, anyways.

      If we were any where near this breaking point, I would be holed up in a bunker ready to shoot anything that moved.

      What is so special about anyone else that they can fix it but Ron paul can’t?

      There may be a few urban riots, but they will use any excuse. This country has survived riots before. if the riots are any where near as bad as you say, any one other than Ron Paul will declare martial law.

      Every generation thinks it is the one that will see a crisis of the proportions you describe. 99 percent of the time they are wrong.

In less than two years after he is elected, we will already be stronger, and more respected worldwide. Dumb Democrat

    Rick Perry is a good man, but I’m not sure he is up to the challenge of being president.

    I don’t like Newt. He is a member of the Council of Foreign Relations, a one world think tank.

    My choice is Romney. His conservative values come from his faith. Mormons believe the Constitution was inspired by God to protect the freedoms of all men. They also believe that America is a “land choice above all other lands.” He is not a one world guy.

    • Roy Edwards

      Too bad they do not believe in the same God. They believe in a god that used to be a man. They believe in a god that says that Jesus and Satan are brothers. They believe that men can become gods of their own planet someday. And they believe that Jesus came to America.

      I do not want this kind of nutcase running our country. Study up and learn. Romney cannot make the tough decisions for us but Newt can for sure. He is almost always the smartest man in the room. He may seem cocky but we used to call that confidence and I still do.

      The trouble with Newt, he knows how washington works and will continue to allow it ro work just like is without any change except maybe to get larger. We need a new attitude in DC — that would be Rick Perry. For my money, Perry is the only viable choice. He has a plan to cut spending, creat jobs, down size government, fight unions as he has in TX, He has a plan to undo obamacare – not just fix a little of it. Both Newt and Mittens want to just fix a little of it and still require everyone to “buy” coverage. BS. Down tell how to spend my money! Perry is the only Choice to get us back on the path to self government. States rights is center of his beliefs. DC has no business telling the states how to educate their kids and they sure dont have a right to tell us if we can pray at ball games when they tell us that we have to provide prayer rooms for the rag heads in public schools. Guess thats the rant.

      You are so wrong!! Newt has made mistakes but he will prove to be a great President. When he does stupid things he’s not afraid to admit it. He is hard headed but the only one that seems to realize that America is on the brink. Newt will be a president that America will be proud of. He will balance the budget, he did when he was in Congress and the world gave the credit to Clinton. Go back and see how hard he fought. Being a typical male, he let the pretty ladies take his eyes off his job.

    • Janice Hurst

      Scott is an idiot. If you want to know what a Mormon believes, ask a Mormon…not someone who has read a pamphlet written by an ex-Mormon who couldn’t live the religion. Romney’s father governed Michigan quite well and his religion was never a problem. He also worked in the Federal Govt. Ezra Taft Benson, a Mormon apostle and prophet was the Secy of Agriculture in Eisenhower’s administration. His religion was never a problem. Nixon was a Quaker and he didn’t make us all wear long black skirts or suits and hats. Kennedy didn’t make us all kiss the Popes ring. So lets just give it up until you know of what you speak. Newt is a big government insider and career politician. Mitt is a flip-flopper has a little government experience in Mass., but is a highly successful business man. Ron Paul is an American to the core, but his ideas are radical to the common man because we don’t understand what the founding father’s wanted for this nation (which btw, Mormon’s believe is a Promised Land.We don’t know enough about Santorum, although I understand he is a good candidate that the media is ignoring. Michelle is too similar to Palin and we see what happened to her. Now there’s Perry….are you kidding me? Ask a Texan. He hasn’t done half of what he claims. He has been elected twice because he tells people what they want to hear and the Democrats can’t find a decent person to run against him. So, I think we are all between a rock and a hard place…but one thing I do know and that is that unless we want to live in a ‘socialist’ country, we have to defeat OBAMA. He is dangerous because of the people backing him and he doesn’t have a clue what he is doing.

    • Jackiesue

      I think Rick Perry would be a good president. However he cannot get through a debate with Obama. Newt would wipe up debating Obama but he might not be electable. So what choices do we have? Cain is gone and there are no real winners in the other 3. I guess whatever we get we just have to go with it and get everyone we know to vote. The Chucky Cheese Mouse would be better than Obama.

    • Diane

      Don’t let the media discourage you, I believe Newt does have a great chance, one of the first thing he will do is downsize the Administration & I bet his wife won’t need over 100 personal staff either! I believe the people will speak & speak loudly… Newt has the back bone to stand up to the wacked foreign leaders and put us back where we need to be. Right now the thing to worry about is Obama cowtowing to the Enviro wackos so they’ll help him get re-elected instead of agreeing to the pipeline from a friendly Country and provide good paying jobs to a lot of families who could use them.

    • Steve

      Diane, I am of the firm conviction that this nation will stand or fall not based on the opinions or actions of foreign leaders but on the actions and influence of leaders at the national, state, and local levels. It will stand if we follow the bold policies regarding the Federal Reserve and closure of several major cabinet-level agencies, move away from socialistic Keynesian fiscal policy, and reign in the debt. There is no other candidate in either party who has the political cajones to take the principled stands Ron Paul has taken. Many of the younger generation are “getting it” and becoming his biggest fans because they do see what will happen if we continue down the same paths taken by standard politics of the past two decades (and more).

    • Joy

      Ron Paul would be a disaster as President!! For forty years, all he has done is holler about auditing the Fed, and while it should be done, there is more to getting the audit than just talking about. As for the Military, he would dismantle it and God knows the foreign Countries are just waiting for the Downsize. No one likes wars but on the other-hand do you want the Military dismantled. We are the greatest Country in the world and our Military Might is the reason. Bill Clinton dismantled most of our Military and we got 9/11 out of that. Think before you vote Your Family and Your Life will depend on it. We don’t need an 80 yr old senile person for President.

    • Steve

      Come now, a President who would completely reverse the trends toward ever-increasing government would be a disaster? Every other candidate “talks the talk” about downsizing but no other candidate has policies to actually do it (except in limited, temporary ways!!

      He will not dismantle the military. You can see my comment above about the attitude of the military toward this man. They understand and respect him (like I do) because they have “been there” (like I have). I love this country and want it to survive. We have been fed a load of hogwash by our politicians and the media, all while our country is going financially (and morally) bankrupt and our freedoms are being taken away with a steadily increasing drumbeat of fear of attack from the outside. I will tell you that several nuclear bombs cannot compare with the devastation that our own political “leadership” has done. Jefferson himself said (words to the effect that) no army or outside force can take down this nation; rather it will implode due to forces from within. He knew those forces were largely financial in nature. Dr. Paul has been the leader in bringing attention to the (I’ll say it now) criminal behavior of the Federal Reserve and has sponsored bill after bill. He now is getting traction even in a Congress that has permanent ADHD. THIS is the leadership that the country needs now, NOT some nitwit who goes around trying to nation-build or make the world safe for democracy while neglecting the very basis for success, namely adherence to Constitutional principles.

    • Vince

      Stupid numbskulls here. I upped your comment, Dave.

    • Asa Christian

      You are so right about the 9/11 attack. Had we not downsized the military and had the Twin Towers been sufficiently manned with a military presence, the attack could have never been carried out.
      As far as our being the greatest country in the world because of our “military might”, you might have a look at our exceptionalism, our creativeness, our freedom, our innovativeness, our ability to come together in times of crisis, our willingness to risk our capital as having contributed something. If “Military Might” is our only claim to fame, perhaps we should welcome declaration of martial law and take over of our lives by the “chosen one” as our dictator. Finally, the Fed has been the root of our economic woes since its illegal inception. It caused the Great Depression when it contracted credit overnight forcing massive margin calls which could not be met. Congressman Paul recognized the Fed as an impediment to our fiscal stability. By the way, you are probable not even aware that JFK signed and Executive Order which would have ended the Fed (E.O. #11110. It’s a matter of record, look it up).

    I respect the author, and I listen to all the opinions offered. But the Tea Party is all about one’s own homework. We listen to everybody and then make our own mind. The Romney seat began before we blinked. Nobody doesn’t know he was the GOP establishment pick and why. WE DON’T WANT HIM. Everytime we found one to get behind, the left destroyed him. Well, they can’t destroy Newt because he is what he is. We already know all the dirt, and we already know he knows where their bodies are buried too. He has matured and become who he is today, but he didn’t forget what he learned. They play dirty, but he doesn’t have to, but he can if he has to also. Romney can’t win on his record so all he does is attack Newt. He should be a window he is so transparent. I would give my vote to see Newt stand next to Obama and debate. Obama would be whipped. I know Newt believes in smaller government and loves the constitutional America and God and Flag would not be tormented like it is now.

      I wish I could agree with you about Newt. He talks a good story, and says great things sometimes, but he is at heart an opportunist who changes his tune as the wind changes direction. He still is a member of the CFR, an organization whose founding goal in the 1920s was to move this country toward a world government at the expense of national sovereignty. His mere membership in that organization, whose goals have not varied, is testament to the fact that he is the same duplicitous character he was in the 1990s.

    How I hope your conclusion is accurate but for a different reason. You must have not been alive or old enough to observe him as the Speaker of the House. You will be hard pressed to find one colleague who has ANY respect for him. Listen to what congressmen who worked with him have to say. (Some of their comments came out today) He was the most rude, egotistical, condescending, caustic, even vicious politician I have ever seen after observing and voting for 50 years. Also he has flip-flopped far worse that Romney. But the reason we would never vote for him is because he is dishonest. He was trying to get Clinton impeached when he was doing worse. He lies about everything like the other day said he would not attack fellow candidates then attacked Mitt, said he was not for health mandates in a debate and Romney spoke truth and made him back down. He also is NOT conservative. It is amazing some think he is but he fools many as he talks out of both sides of his mouth. Check this link:

      At age 82, I can remember Newt and his contract with America very well…Your statement with regard to Newt and his peers in Congress is quite accurate…the peers wanted to maintain the status quo while Newt ran on the promise of changing the way things were being done in Washington…When you try to upset the apple cart of those in congress who enjoy living off the government teat, you’re bound to ruffle some feathers…did Newt make some mistakes along the way…of course he did…anyone who attempts to disrupt the status quo will be attacked by those who are happy with the way things have always been in Washington..in the final analysis, Newt was only convicted on many of the charges that were brought against him…had he chosen to fight that final charge, the general consensus is that he might have won…We’ve allowed the media to destroy one of the top GOP candidates, Herman Cain, and they will try to destroy Newt as well…The big difference between Gingrich and Cain’s problem is that we knew nothing about Cain…on the other hand, it will be hard to bring up anything new on Newt..The only president in my life time, beginning with Herbert Hoover, that has the moral compass that all of you on the far right are looking for, is none other than Jimmy Carter and we all know how that turned out…the evangelicals say they all for turning the other cheek except when it comes to someone with whom they disagree.

    • Hank is back

      Newt grew the size of Government and increased the strength of Government just like the Democrats. Just because he signed a pledge full of superficial, but cool sounding things in it does not mean he wasn’t for the status quo. Clinton has nothing but admiration for Newt. And it ain’t because Newt and him were respectful adversaries.

  • Army CWO Retired

    Newt is likely NOT the best man to be our next president, but I refuse to get all wrapped up in anyone of them to the point that I will take my marbles and go home if I don’t get my way.

      Perry – the fact that he forced vaccinations on little girls surely showed me that he is in cahoots with Big Pharma. Never mind all his other shortcomings.

      Unfortunately both Romney and Newt are insiders and deliver the same old same old.

      There was a time when I thought that Ron Paul was too “far out”, but you know, at this juncture, I start to believe that only his “far out” has even a chance to save this mess.

      All the same old is not going to save this country. Only question is which of the clowns will destroy it the fastest.

      Honestly… Newt has been out of the scene for years! How can you call him an insider when it’s plain to see that the establishment & good ole boy’s in Congress don’t want him upsetting their apple cart. I think he’s just the guy to get them back on track. He’s more like an out cast to them, but I think he’s strong enough & smart enough to make the hard choices that need to be made & lead in a bi-partisan manner that has to happen.

      D Girl – get your “facts” straight before you m ake you pronouncments on Perry. He did not force a single shot on “little girls” n TX. It was all stopped before it ever started. Now the smart medical folks think that is best thing to do since slicing bread. Go figure. Maybe Perry is smarter than some dimbulbs on here think. I believe he is the only real choice as an outsider of DC who has constantly derided the DC crowd with new rules and regs for the states to fund and abide by. Perry is the only small government candidate and the only true conservate, except for possible Dr Paul who is also a little crazy.

  • Rick

    It amazes me that conservatives around the nation clamor for a return to Constitutional government and original values, but refuse to recognize and support the one person in national politics who has preached and practiced those very things consistently for over 40 years.

  • Patti Patriot

    It is of concern that Mr. Romney is convinced that there is global warming. I guess that means we can look forward to Cap and Trade if he is elected. He has hinted at this already already.

    • Diane

      Patti are you kidding me, you need to listen a bit more, the EPA will cease to exist as we know it, they are the ones driving the so called cap & trade thanks to Obama. Have you taken the time to read the contract with America?

    • Archangel

      Gingrich is in favor of cap & trade!

    • Hank is back

      The CWA is a meaningless scarp of paper that only promises to do things without providing ways to do them.

      And the EPA will simply be renamed and reformed just enough to make it legitimate to ‘conservatives’ so that it can live to screw things up a few decades down the road when Newt will no longer be pres and won’t get the blame.

      The EPA regulations are almost always based on what US Law allows them to do (passed in Congress). Unless many or most of those are repealed, just renaming the EPA won’t change it. Does Newt advocate repealing US Law, some of which is 50 or more years old? Nope. He is too busy making easy promises that sound good but are meaningless.

  • jt

    Mr.Perry can’t speak without putting his foot in mouth. Newt…..well how can you trust his record. I’m inclined to agree with ED,the mistakes we made as a society are going to cycle thru. No politician will stop the wrath we are do.Abortion is a horrific sin.

  • Al Stone

    Don’t understand why you like Perry as he is not up to the job and not intelligent enough to be president at this time. He admits he did not have the grades to become a vet like he desired. He has a very difficult time putting his thoughts into words let alone the mental blocks we all witnessed. The reason we could never vote for him is because he engaged in pay to play (received $70 million in contributions for appointing those contributors to boards and commissions in Texas) Too bad the truth does not come out about the candidates. Romney at least has been true to his wife, family, and church and as governor did not act in response to pay offs.

  • Todd

    I am praying everyday that we get a viable solution to rid of us this evil. we are a blessed and God fearing land. I feel that we arent given any options–didn’t like Mccain and now Gingrich is our choice. God Help our Country. We can’t afford another four years of Obama and even this current congress…….

  • Vern Michels

    We need a president from Texas to straighten out the economy. Ron Paul is the first choice but the media and polititions will never let it happen because he is the only candidate who is not a NEOCON. If he was a member of the Zionist Organization of America, he would be far in front of the pack of candidates. So we have to settle for Perry who is also a good choice.

  • http://GreatDane v e laursen

    If we get a higher than 2/3 majority of conservative senators and representatives that are looking out for the good of the USA, it won’t matter who is president!
    As Army CWO retired says “Any of our candidates is vastly better than Mr. Obama.”

    • Hank is back

      I am inclined to agree to an extent, which is exactly why I am voting my conscience and not my fear.

      There will be no difference between a Gingrich and an Obama administration.

      Congress ill stand up to Obama’s liberalism because Obama is unpopular. Congress will NOT stand up to Gingrich’s liberalism because it will be packaged as conservatism. So even though Obama’s liberalism is a far worse variety, it will at least be curtailed. Gingrich’s will not. It is a wash.

      Examples from the past:

      FDR and Truman did the New Deal. eisenhower also did the New deal, but made it temporarily palatable to conservatives.

      LBJ was a big government liberal. Nixon was too, but masqueraded as a conservative. Did he fix the things LBJ broke? No.

      Reagan at least fixed some things from the Carter era, but Gingrich is no Reagan. Reagan had the same principles throughout his life and never regretted the things he said when he first got into politics. Gingrich is the exact opposite.

      But Bush Senior destroyed Reagan’s legacy (which is partially Reagan’s fault because Reagan picked Bush).

      Bush Junior followed the same policies as Clinton, but cloaked them in the words ‘compassionate conservatism’.

      Gingrich might repeal Obamacare, for which I will praise him, but he is of the opinion that Government still needs to replace it with something. Therefore Gingrich will be temporarily a hero, but in the end will continue on the same path of government expansionism and the infringement of the Constitution and our rights.

  • http://eaglesforamerica.com Jeff B. Willis

    If the Republicans want to make Barack Obama a one term president, they need to stay clear of Newt. He cannot win! He has every problem conceivable. The biggest of them is his sincerity. He will never gain sufficient numbers of women to win. His faith is suspect. His true positions on everything from the environment to healthcare is suspect. Republicans need to look for an alternative; any alternative! That is, IF they want to retire Barack Obama in 2012.

    • Aristaeus

      Actually, while you make some good points, I think his greatest liability may be his image. The multitudes who don’t pay much attention to politics, given a choice between Obama and an old, fat, gray-haired white man…

  • kenneth

    I can not believe that the current runners are the best that we Republicans can muster. Each of them has serious drawbacks to being elected President.
    Of course, any one of them or Mickey Mouse would be better than Obama.
    Maybe our system of “Democratic Republic” has outlived its time. Perhaps we need to have a dictator or maybe a king. How does King Kenneth I sound?

    • Archangel

      It is a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC not a democratic republic! Democracy is just another form of TYRANNY by the majority whereas a REPUBLIC is designed to protect the individual (minority) from the Tyranny of the majority and we are failing miserably!

      I will not submit to the ill-informed whims of any man, Obama, Gingrich, Romney, or Perry. They can ALL go to hell!

      Whoever lays his hand on me to govern me is a usurper and tyrant, and I declare him my enemy.

  • R.Cook

    I have a suggestion. Make a list of every candidate with about 10 columns after to the right of them. At the top of each column write a word or words that describe a point you find important. Rate each candidate from one to 10 in the column next to their name. Add the totals at the bottom. Do that each week until the primary election. When you get to election day you will have a a pretty good idea who has remained steady in your estimation.

    • R.Cook

      Do the same when the general election arrives and rate Obama against the Republican nominee for the same 10 points. I think you will find you have a very distinct choice.

  • Billyc

    Clearly a Perry fan. It’s funny to hear all this talk about who is electable, all intended to push people toward or away from certain candidates. Any of our guys have a reasonable chance of beating Obama. Ironically, the one guy with the best chance of losing is the RINO establishment candidate, Mitt Romney. Newt doesn’t have very deep principles, but he’s pretty good at jumping in front of the right train. And he has a history of dancing with who brung him, so I think he would be a conservative president. Perry has conservative principles and a good handle on federalism, but he is a traditional politician who will also feel obligated to big donors. Still a far sight better than Romney or Huntsman.

  • John

    I just received a call from Gingrich headquarters this evening. I told the campaign worker that I am one pi$$ed off Republican. The kingmakers are excluding us little people again ! I told the Gingrich people that I want our candiate to have a sound economic recovery program somewhat like the one Herman Cain proposed. The tax code is over 70,000 pages long and is rife with pork, fraud, and political favors for which we the taxpayers must bear the burden. I told him that if such a proposal is not forthcoming from one or more of the ” yawner ” candidates, that I am considering sitting home and not voting or else voting for that a$$hole Obama out of spite !

    • Asa Christian

      Some of you people absolutely amaze me. You hoot and howl, rant and rave about how bad Obama is. You then turn around and claim you will not vote for this candidate or that candidate. ANY ONE of the candidates, ANY ONE will be infinitly better than what we have at present. I too have a favorite, and a second favorite, and even a third favorite. Even if one of my favorites is not the nominee, I WILL be voting for the candidate who will depose Obama. I don’t want socialism: I don’t like class warefare; I don’t like the promotion of racism; I don’t like the ‘spreading of wealth; I don’t like the philosophy of Alynski in my life; I don’t like the cronyism; I don’t like our ballooning debt; I don’t like our undeclared foreign wars; I don’t like “under the radar” attacks on the Second Amendment; in fact, there is very little that the current administration has done that I agree with. I WILL BE VOTING! And I expect to be helping the Republicans get ever registered Republican to the polls on election day. And let me also say this. Let some thug in black pajamas try to stop me from entering the polling place.

  • Lucile Hines

    I have lived 96 years and have never been as concerned about the future of our country as I am now. I am a conservative, actively engaged in the political events at this time. I have lived through seven wars, had family members in every one, including a great grandson and great great grand daughter in Iraq. I see such a similarity between our country and the events leading up to Hitler and the holocaust. Most of you are too young to remember WWII and the curriculum in our schools is being carelessly manipulated to decrease the intensity of that phase of history but some of us remember!
    I have been active in community affairs, served as a live-in administrator of a parole group home for 25 years, serving more than 800 parole girls. I have not been isolated from the street life and the worst scenarios. I still hear from some of the girls who are grateful for the Home and the change it brought to their lives though the Home has been closed since 1995. I say all of this because some of you are going to disagree with what I am about to express. I have lived so long because of my strong Christian faith. I was declared terminally ill, hospitalized in June, but I am alive and active. Our nation is at war with God and you can’t fight God and win. Herein lies the root of our problems and having a Muslim in leadership is a present danger. Presently there is an aggressive campaign to rid our nation of Christian symbols, concentrating on the cross at present. If we ditch God and Christian symbols we will have to redo the interior of our Capitol because among other symbols and Christian references is Scripture atop the Washington Monument, a depiction of Moses holding the two tablets of the Ten Commandments. I’ve visited Washington D.C., seen the sound and light show depicting Lincoln’a assassination, saw the bed he slept in, saw the many crosses in Arlington Cemetery, saw the Kennedy Graves. Also visited Gettysburg Museum which is a sobering experience and makes one appreciate what people have suffered that we might be free.
    Our founding fathers had a healthy respect for God so we have a Constitution that if followed guarantees our freedoms. All of this for what?? A Socialist
    or a Communist state??
    God will have the last word and we would do well to stay under His protection and stop fighting the hand that is protecting us.

      With the help of God evil was overturned (don’t anyone respond that the other side was praying to God, also, they were not on His side and either were not praying or were praying to false gods.)

      Please allow me to THANK YOU for your service to our country. You have done as much for us as any soldier on a battlefield. Your points about God’s punishments seem valid as well, but I wonder if we were given Barack Obama as a wake-up call. If this is true, then God must have a plan to restore These United States. Call me a “cockeyed optimist” if you will. All I really know is the God evidently wants the U.S.A. to spread the gospel and a message of liberty to a dark and fallen world and the job isn’t finished. This time the fight is in our country. In any case, “Well done faithful servant” is a blessing hoped for by both of us.

    • Gene Vallorani

      God Bless You, Ms. Hines You are so right. We Americans continue to turn our backs on our Creator and our Savior. To what end will our blasphemies and uncaring sinful lives bring us? The wages of sin is death. We better be careful who we decide to vote for.For me it’s Rick Perry.

      Lucile Hines: You are a good person; I know that from what you wrote and the way you expressed your feelings. But we are not at war with God; God doesn’t exist – he’s just a myth – like all of the other mythical entities that are the focus of all other religions. What we are at war with is religion; the Islamic jihadist terrorists who attacked us on 9/11 did so because of the teachings of their religion. The horrors of the inquisition, which lasted for hundreds of years, were not distortions of the teachings of Christianity but based precisely on Christianity and the Bible’s teachings.

    • nightlight

      Donald DeHoff: your final statement that, “…I will avoid all issues of and about religion” is an excellent example of the problem. Society has placed religion “off limits” for a good reason: if religion were exposed to criticism, critical analysis, or held up to the light of reason and reality, it would not survive.
      All religions are systems of beliefs that treat lies as truths, myths as reality, and use imaginary rewards and punishments to control and enslave people.

  • 2WarAbnVet

    The liberal/socialist media and the Republican establishment is working assiduously to select Romney as the Republican candidate. Romney is basically “McCain 2012″, a weak uninspiring nominee. A great many conservatives would be turned off. It remains to be seen whether others would hold their collective noses and vote for him out of fear of the damage the Dems have done to the nation, or whether they’d see Romney as “Obama-lite”, and stay home in disgust.

      I agree with everything that you say.Unfortunately if Romney is the nominee I feel,that the country is lost!I feel that he could not stand up to Obama,in a debate the way Gingrich could!Obama’s past associations have to be brought up,how he stood on.The steps with hand on Bible and swore to,up hold.The Constitution and defend and protect the people of,America from any enemy nations!Which he has not done illegal’s can just walk right in and receive,the same privileges as any American!Economy shot $15 trillion deficit unemployment way over 9%,America it’s time you wake up!Romney is Romneycare Gingrich can bring him down in a debate!Just because Romney looks the part does not mean a thing America needs someone,who can make.Tough decisions and stand by them!We need to pray to God that for the best person!

    Let’s get a few thing straight folks. A fool never changes his mind, a wise man occasionally. On that note I say good for Newt. Have you heard any other candidate admit his mistakes?
    In my world, God is in control, no matter what one thinks here on earth. 86% +/- should be praying for Obama. That God will direct him Obama). But on the other hand, he lies everyday. He is a muslin, and a communist. He hates America and has shown it. He has made more changes than any president and people just keep walking to the slaughter behind him. Christmas Eve while people were celebrating, Obama and his band of cheats were passing Obamacare. I guess they had to do that behind closed doors as they were so “transparent” that folks with any measure of gray matter would see right through them. So much for Obama and transparency.

    Newt is going to have to face his maker –and he has ! I am for Newt for many reasons. Personally I don’t care what his marriage background is, it’s what he says that has my vote. He is brilliant with faults.
    The same goes for gays, I don’t tell them what I do in bed with my wife because it’s none of their business and I am not in a dysfunctional relationship. Anal intercourse should tell one it’s like buying a Corvair to beat a Corvette. It just doesn’t work, but they are trying so hard to make homosexuals seem right.

  • Steve in Indy

    It’s extremely important to know how you should vote. Ignorance in voting if ill placed, gives a vote to the wrong person and takes away a vote from the right person.
    The most ignorant comment was for us to try Obama for another term. And how do you then propose to get out of that trap?
    And lastly, why would anyone choose to sign in as “Archangel”? LOL
    God bless you all, some of us, are in for a tough time, if you are still here, later.

  • Don39

    Not that I necessarily agree with the article, but I would like to see Rick Perry resurected as a viable candidate because I think he is be more conservative and viable candidate to include the two current front runners, neither one of which I trust or have faith in on a number of issues but especially big government and expendatures, and the illegals/amnesty issue. Neither has the cahones to make needed changes in the federal government, eliminate unionization of the government or reform entitlements.

      Tell that to Gingrich, who helped create the DoEd, and is in bed with Al Sharpton, Arne Duncan, and Obama on his education plan, and who was banging his teacher back in 1961.

    • George

      Not really — Obama, Not really — This Article, Not really !

    • Dood

      You are so right! The Romney/Gingrich “thing” is a false choice. They are both big government Republicans trying to ptetend they are conservatives. Ricj Perry is our only real hope at this point. He may not be ideal, but nobody is, and he is the only real person of stature left! We must rally around Rick!

    • wisdomcries

      But Perry has advocated many Big Gov polices in his own state…plus he is a boob on TV and TV is how it gets accomplished in today’s society and that’s just how it is. Perry, Bauchman, Santorum are better but they are boobs because they can’t do the vernacular of public speaking and in the end it is about votes right? Don’t sell your soul! but one has to know how to present the message. You will attract more flies with sugar than vinegar and the others are vinegar in the minds of the media and they are the ones that elected Ovomit so if you can’t or aren’t capable of overcoming the MSM ON LSD then you won’t get elected and O wins again and this second term will be tantamount to the 7th seal.

      A lot of truth to your statement, but just remember that without a teleprompter o is just another boob, go back and take a look at some of his speeches when he was just a junior senator, “ah, um” etc.

      What has Rick Perry ever done for Texas? Ok so he has served as its Gov longer than any other person. So what he has brought more jobs to Texas than any other Gov of any other state. Peopleand industry have moved to Texas in droves. Texas is in better financial shape than most others states. Finally, he hates big government. But, so what… are any of those things important to a nation that has severe economic problems, high unemployment, companies that are rushing to relocate to China,and a outrageous growing debt? Why would we want a person from Texas that hates debating… and all he seems capable of is accomplishing major things during very difficult times? /s

    Gingrich Lied #1: The draft doesn’t undermine the rule of law and therefore my immigration plan based on the Selective Service model doesn’t either.

    Proof: The Thirteenth Amendment:

    Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.

    To be fair, illegal immigrants did commit a crime. But as such, they should be treated the same as all other lawbreakers, i.e., given a real JURY TRIAL.

    • http://N/A jerry

      Wake-up, Hank;;;non-citizens can’t “legally”
      ask for or receive, a jury trial..only demo-rats think they have RIGHTS.=they don’t

    • Hank is back

      Wake up Jerry…

      You are full of shi…

      The Constitution applies to EVERYONE in the country. Citizens and Aliens. Read your Constitution.

      illegal immigrants should be punished, but by the LAW, not your whim!

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #2: The Jury Trial necessarily has friends and neighbors of the defendant deciding his fate. This is because the Founders distrusted Judges.

    Proof: The Jury is chosen from a pool. Those shown to have a conflict of interest (i.e., friends and neighbors) are rejected or replaced.

    The Founders may have distrusted Judges, but they really distrusted some of the laws that the defendant may have broken. Just because a law is Constitutional does not mean it is always just in every case.

    • wisdomcries

      While I don’t agree with all you say Hank you are well spoken and well versed. You are the type I like to converse with as Iron sharpens Iron.

    • Hank is back

      I thank you, oh Cryer of Wisdom.

      Even if we disagree, and even if we get testy, and on rare occasions bordering on the profane, I have nothing but respect and admiration for those that are willing to argue a point and not resort to baseless ad hominem attacks.

      I hope that one of us may convince the other of the error of the other’s ways through logic, truth, critical discussion, and occasionally acerbic wit.

      Cheers!

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #3: I backed the mandate only when it was proposed by the Heritage Foundation, and only in opposition to HillaryCare.

    Proof: Gingrich said in May of this year that “I agree [with Obama and Romney] that all of us have a responsibility to pay–help pay for health care,” and “I’ve said consistently we ought to have some requirement that you either have health insurance or you post a bond”.

    Just because he didn’t use the word ‘Mandate’ does not mean he didn’t describe one.

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #4: I never favored ‘Cap and Trade’.

    Proof: On 2/15/07, Gingrich said, “I think if you have mandatory carbon caps combined with a trading system, much like we did with sulfur, and if you have a tax-incentive program for investing in the solutions, that there’s a package there that’s very, very good. And frankly, it’s something I would strongly support.”

    The difference between ‘strongly support’ and ‘favor’ is negligible.

    Semantics: I never favored one VERSION of ‘Cap and Trade’.

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #5: I got to four balanced budgets in our lifetime.

    Proof: The Budget has not been balanced since 1957. Every year since has had a deficit. The appearance of a balanced budget comes from the fact that Government borrowed money from itself and called it revenue. The fine print of Social Security legislation says payroll taxes are treated as revenue and not retirement funds. Money was siphoned from entitlements (contributing to their insolvency), which is not counted in the baseline.

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #6: I pushed through the biggest entitlement reform in our lifetime.

    Proof: Welfare reform changed welfare from an entitlement to a subsidy. Instead of being entitled to money for nothing, recipients had to find work after two years of receiving funds. Social Security and Medicare went largely untouched. Not to be too harsh on Gingrich, it could be argued that this was the biggest POSITIVE reform of ONE entitlement, and rightly so. In the process, however, welfare was legitimized.

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #7: I helped shrink the Federal Government.

    Proof: Gingrich voted for bills that made it past the President’s desk increasing the size and scope of HUD, HHS, EPA, FEMA, VA, Interior Dep., State Dep., Defense Dep., Energy Dep., and Education Dep. (which he helped to create).

    He supported:

    Fairness Doctrine
    Amendment to create a National Police
    One of the largest increases in Education Dep. ($3.5 B)
    Tax dollars to pay for abortions
    $45 B in Foreign Aid in 1994
    Undeclared Wars

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #8: Education decisions should go back to the states.

    Proof: What he said outside of the brackets is true, but his record speaks differently. He helped James Earl Carter to create the Department of Education back in 1979. He voted for one of the largest increases in Federal education spending in 1996 ($3.5 Billion), supported No Child Left Behind (though not in Congress) and in 2009 galavanted across the country with Al Sharpton and Arne Duncan in support of Obama’s education plan.

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #9: I want to get rid of the EPA and replace it with an ESA.

    Proof: Replacing the EPA with something else is the same as just renaming it. Most EPA regulations are pursuant to legislation (some of which Gingrich voted for). Unless these acts are repealed, any agency taking the EPA’s place will serve the same purpose. There are some 50 acts that directly affect the EPA and the way it is run. Most or all of them would need to be repealed in order to reverse the economic damage done.

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #10: The Tenth Amendment allows the Federal government to enforce the will of the people (as interpreted by the Feds, of course) against the states.

    Proof: The Tenth Amendment prohibits the Federal government from exercising powers not mentioned in the Constitution. It also was meant to protect the rights of citizens NOT delegated to a state by its own constitution. So, if a state constitution grants that state authority over education in that state, it may be the sole arbiter.

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #11: The President is the leader of the American people, and the head of the government.

    Proof: People are sovereign individuals and all elected officials are public servants. The President is the head only of the Executive branch, not the entire government. Constitutionally, the Executive branch is on equal footing with the Judicial and Legislative branches. The powers of the President are limited to appointing figureheads, and executing the law, and various combinations thereof.

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #12: You CAN have it both ways; there is a fundamental difference between the Executive branch pressuring states and the Congress handing down mandates to states.

    Proof: Constitutionally, Presidents may only,

    Be Chief Commander of the military
    Require opinions from department heads on subjects relating to their duties
    Pardon Federal offenses
    Make Treaties with Senate cooperation
    Nominate Ambassadors, Judges and positions established [pursuant to the Constitution]
    Fill vacancies

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #13: What I said was accurate. Our country must take action to address climate change. If enough of us demand action from our leaders, we can spark the innovation we need.

    Proof: No consensus on climate change exists. Regardless, climate change might not be anthropogenic. One country could not reverse it. Demanding action from our leaders has historically not worked. If it did, they would be known as ‘public servants’, not ‘leaders’. Only the private sector can spark innovation.

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #14: People hated the Pelosi add because she was so radioactive.

    Proof: People hated it because they are suspicious of ‘bipartisanism’, government insiders from any party, and politics in the scientific arena. They hated the fact that someone claiming to be a conservative would do a favor for Al Gore and nearly swap spit with a certain Catholic grandmother. They hated it because they smelled a rat. The rat wasn’t Former Speaker Pelosi (although she is). It was Former Speaker Gingrich.

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lied #15: My book, Contract with the Earth, was an effort to argue that pro-market solutions would lead to a better environment.

    Proof: While it is true that Pro-Market solutions are best because innovation is sparked by the private sector, and that the book uses Pro-Market terminology, the book’s five main objectives, to Demand Objectivity; Educate and Inspire; Encourage Green Enterprise; Give, Help, and Share; and Think Long Term, amount to mandates, subsidies, and brainwashing.

  • Hank is back

    Gingrich Lie #16: My favorite Founding Father is George Washington.

    Proof: Newt has done his very best to emulate the following qualities of the following men: overemphasis of the strength and size of the Federal government (a la Alexander Hamilton), stabbing of the country in the back (a la Benedict Arnold), profiteering off of the country’s misfortune (a la Aaron Burr), and a voracious culinary/sexual appetite, and a reputation for intellectual self-aggrandizement (a la Benjamin Franklin).*

      Not really. It will be little different than if Obama wins. Both big government scum. That is the history of the last 100 years in this country. It is the way we live. If or when this man wins, I have no doubt that I will be proven correct in most of my assertions, even if it takes you another four to eight years to admit it. Cynics like me may be downright hysterical in our attempts to prevent EVIL, but we are Stoic and brave in the face of it and in our resolve to abolish it once it has been established.

  • Donald DeHoff

    Things are not going well for the Republican Party. I don’t usually make predictions, but will do so now. I predict the Party or one or more of its sub-groups will draft either Huckabee or Cain to re-enter the race. The draftee will invite the other to remain in the administration in some other capacity. I further predict the draftee will ask that Jeb Bush be his VP, Newt, the most knowledgable man in Washington to be Secretary of State, McCain to be Secretary of Defense, and the most level-headed women to hold positions, not in line for the Presidency, not because they are not qualified, but just that it is premature to have a women who could be President who would have to negotiate with the very large and hostile Muslim world “out there”. That group believes women are inferior and should remain at the “beck and call” of men for sex, and stay at home and raise children—however, women’s time will come. Also, don’t expect any Republican candidate to be as knowledgable on world affairs as Obama–he has, for over 3 years, been receiving briefings on world issues on a daily and up to the moment basis. Also, select a person who has a history of being able to solve very diverse problems. And, if all of that falls into place, I want the job of “Ambassador at Large”, in charge of selecting the best fishing locations in the country; some ol’ Egyptian sage said, “The days spent angling do not count against one’s life span”. Being 79 years young, I need all the assistance I can get!

    WHO’S NEWT?:
    http://giveusliberty1776.blogspot.com/2011/12/whos-newt.html

    … and, most recently, he has proposed giving 30 MILLION Illegal aliens amnesty as long as they pay a small fine and can “speak English” — thus opening the door to ANOTHER 100 MIILLION, or more, family members! Good Bye America.

    “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” – Thomas Jefferson

    Whether it’s flip-flopping on TARP, supporting the individual mandate that served as a model for “ObamaCare,” joining with Nancy Pelosi in support of the global-warming crowd’s radical agenda, or making millions off of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as they helped destroy our economy, Newt Gingrich is trying to pull the wool over our eyes.
    He’s what is called a “counterfeit conservative.”

    Gingrich Explains His Support for Individual Health Mandate

    From the Glenn Beck program 12/6/11:

    GINGRICH: I am for people, individuals, exactly like automobile insurance, individuals having health insurance and being required to have health insurance, and I am prepared to vote for a voucher system which will give individuals on a sliding scale a government subsidy so it will ensure that everyone as individuals have health insurance.

    President Obama on the individual healthcare mandate, August 2011: “(Obamacare) should not be controversial… the individual mandate’s important… It’s just like your car insurance…”
    While in Congress, Gingrich co-sponsored 418 bills with Pelosi:

    Gingrich Supported Rockefeller Over Goldwater

    Barry Goldwater’s 1964 presidential campaign was arguably the most important in the history of the American conservative movement, leading to the “Reagan Revolution” in 1980 and it continued to have a significant influence on the Right well beyond that particular election. Where was Newt Gingrich in this fight? Supporting Nelson Rockefeller:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=hJQsLFhuyOY&noredirect=1

    The “Principled Leadership” of Newt Gingrich

    “I am not inclined to be a supporter of Newt Gingrich’s having served under him for four years and experienced his leadership. Because I found it lacking often times. There’s all kind of leaders, leaders that instill confidence and leaders that are somewhat abrupt, leaders that have one standard for the people that they are leading and a different standard for themselves. I will have difficulty supporting him for president of the United States.” — Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.)

    “We had to push Newt because he wanted to cave in… Those of us who told Newt, ‘If you don’t fight for a balanced budget and don’t fight for these tax cuts and don’t fight for the cuts in committee chairmanships, etc., etc., that we promised we were going to do, we are going to kick you out’ — those 10 or 15 or so, every one of them — Tom Coburn, Matt Salmon running again in Arizona, all of them. They may not be saying it publicly, but privately they’re sending me e-mails every day going, … ‘How many times does Newt have to teach these people he’s bad for the conservative movement?’–MSNBC host and former U.S. Rep. Joe Scarborough, part of the “Republican Revolution” of 1994

    Via the The American Spectator’s Quin Hillyer:

    Former American Conservative Union Chairman Mickey Edwards was even blunter:

    “I’ve known Newt now for thirty years almost,” says former congressman Mickey Edwards. “But I wouldn’t be able to describe what his real principles are. I never felt that he had any sort of a real compass about what he believed except for the pursuit of power.”

  • Earle Belle

    The Sr. Administrator of HermanCainForums has soundly rejected Newt Gingrich & endorsed Ron Paul. In a Posting on the site he stated,

    Now that Herman Cain has dropped out of the race my new candidate is….. Congressman Ron Paul. Ron Paul was the only candidate that actually had remorse for how the media treated Herman Cain and the alleged affairs, I will always thank him for showing respect in that nature, with that said. I had always liked a lot of what Ron Paul advocates, I don’t agree with him on everything but probably 90%. I am going to encourage all Ron Paul supporters to come here and openly support Ron Paul for he is now my new official candidate for President. I was asked to support Newt Gingrich, there is no possibly way I could every endorse Newt Gingrich, how the republican party is supporting Gingrich I have no idea. While Newt has had documented multiple affairs with women Herman Cain’s campaign was destroyed by accusations yet Gingrich is at the top of the polls?

    Ron Paul Campaign Rejects Trump Iowa Debate

    Trump’s participation will contribute to circus-like atmosphere and is odd considering his slight to RPI

    ANKENY, Iowa – The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign released the following statement concerning the selection of Donald Trump as moderator for the December 27th Republican debate to be held in Iowa. Below please find comments from Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton:

    “The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign Committee rejects the selection of Donald Trump as moderator for the Republican presidential debate to be held on December 27th in Iowa.

    “We have conferred with our Iowa campaign chairman Drew Ivers and vice-chairmen David Fischer and A.J. Spiker who are all RPI State Central Committee Members, and they concur with this decision.

    “The selection of a reality television personality to host a presidential debate that voters nationwide will be watching is beneath the office of the Presidency and flies in the face of that office’s history and dignity. Mr. Trump’s participation as moderator will distract from questions and answers concerning important issues such as the national economy, crushing federal government debt, the role of the federal government, foreign policy, and the like. To be sure, Mr. Trump’s participation will contribute to an unwanted circus-like atmosphere.

    “Mr. Trump’s selection is also wildly inappropriate because of his record of toying with the serious decision of whether to compete for our nation’s highest office, a decision he appeared to make frivolously. The short-lived elevation of Mr. Trump’s stature as a candidate put him on the radar of many organizations and we recall that last spring he was invited to keynote the Republican Party of Iowa’s annual Reagan Dinner, yet at the last minute he left RPI holding the bag by canceling. In turn, RPI canceled its biggest fundraising gala of the year and suffered embarrassment and in addition RPI was required to engage in refunding measures. Our candidate will not even consider participating in the late-December debate until Mr. Trump publicly apologizes to Iowa party leaders and rectifies in full the situation.
    “Therefore our candidate Ron Paul, the champion of the Constitution, has advised he will not attend.

    So far I haven’t seen too much in the way of GOP Candidates that impresses me. There are a few that come close but that comes from a little research and that requires a little work. That’s right. I said that four letter word, “WORK,” and it really isn’t all that hard. If you are able to read this you have the means to do that research without leaving the comfort of home. Here is what I am talking about.

    Do not be fooled by their campaign speeches or what the candidates, of both parties, say in debates. Those are just words and slogans. Edward R. Murrow said “Our major obligation is not to mistake slogans for solutions.” Actions speak louder than words. Research the candidates. Look at their past voting records, accomplishments, backgrounds, the issues they supported, activities they participated in, books they wrote and the organizations they joined. Those things can tell you quite a lot about the person.

    In the past elections, less than 50%, of those eligible, even bothered to vote. A politician’s worse nightmare is if everyone eligible voted. Then they would have to work for their constituents and there is no money in that. The money is in supporting Special Interest Lobbies. The people that don’t vote all have their reasons. Some say the elections are fixed so their vote means nothing. Others say that they didn’t like any of the candidates so they didn’t vote. And my favorite. Still others say they don’t vote so you can’t blame them for the situation the country is in. WRONG! Many people I talk to seem to have an ostrich mentality. They stick their heads in the sand hoping it will all go away. They don’t vote or pay attention to what is going on and they refuse to talk about it, because it is too depressing. So they grab a beer out of the refrigerator, sit in their easy chair, watch sports and stay home on election day.

    Those who don’t vote deserve the government they got. They did just as much to put Obama in the White House as those who voted him in there.

    To those who don’t vote I have one thing to say. If the day ever comes that the minority of voters have voted all our rights away, don’t come complaining to me. I will have one question. Where were you when there was still time to do something about it?

    APATHY, NOT OBAMA, IS THE GREATEST THREAT TO OUR LIBERTIES AND FREEDOMS. WAKE UP AMERICA!

    RICK PERRY VOTED TO SUPPORT ILLEGAL ALIEN CHILDREN (EDUCATION) WITH CITIZEN TAXPAYER MONEY’!

    • SunnyR

      This is a LIE! Rick Perry did NOT advocate using tax payer money for “illegal aliens (children) education.” The bill was passed by an overwhelming vote of 184-4 for “instate tuition” for children of illegals who had been residents of Texas for a period of time. This means these kids could pay the same amount of tuition as any other RESIDENT child in Texas. It does NOT mean FREE tuition!! No taxpayer money is involved. They must pay their own tuition fees!

    Romney and Paul are both reruns for POTUS. They couldn’t defeat McCain. McCain couldn’t defeat W. Reruns can’t win. At present the Only one with a prayer is Newt. He has his worts but so does Romney and Paul is an absolute nut.

    • catfish

      Old Newt is also a hell of a lot smarter that all of them beginning with Ohomo.

  • MJS

    I hope Rick Perry wins, but if he doesn’t it better not be Romney. Not only will he loose, but he’ll destroy the GOP on his way going down.

  • http://yahoo iwojimafan

    I’m liking Rick Perry’s idea of cutting the President’s pay in half and especially of cutting in half of all members of Congress along with also cutting there staffs in half and only working 6 months a year. Eliminating the Education Dept. the Energy Dept. along with the EPA will save this country Billions of dollars and making all Federal Employees have to be in SS including everyone in Congress. We also need TERM LIMITS of 12 total years you can serve in Congress along with a BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT which the LIBERAL FASCIST DEMOC RATS are always against since it causes the THIEVES ( LIBERALS) to not steal as much as they do now.

    • Hank is back

      If you like that, you will really like Ron Paul’s plan to cut Presidential pay down to a less than a tenth, and to cut, not three, but five agencies and departments.

    I pray that you are right about Newt NOT being elected as President. He is NOT conservative. Personally I’m starting a campaign to get Herman Cain elected by write-in – a presidential first. I truly thing he would be the best for us economically. But, that failing, I think Perry is best also.

    Hello RNC.

    I REFUSE to vote for the lesser of two evils. We have had enough of that.

    If Romney is your choice many of us will not be voting. You will ensure the re-election of Obama.

    And frankly I have suspicions that is exactly what you want.

    • wisdomcries

      The political process we endure dictates that we hold our collective noses and vote. I can’t find it in scripture that the Lord calls us to doing nothing when there are options available.

      A non vote is surrender, acquiescence, if Satan or Fidel Castro were your only choices would you not vote?

    • joe

      I have voted for Walter Williams several times just because Satan and Castro where on the ballot!

    • Hank is back

      Wisdom Cries,

      I have to agree with Joe, there are more than just two options available. Not voting and writing in may both me the most moral choice in certain circumstances. Just because the world is not changed by ‘sitting out’ does not mean it is wrong.

      When the Israelites had the choice between staying in Egypt as slavery and but lacking freedom and going out into the wilderness and lacking security, God told them that if they didn’t quit whining about their situation and start obeying Him that they would get neither.

      Ben Franklin (though not part of scripture) said, in a similar vein,

      They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

      The lesser of two evils undoubtedly and invariably is still an evil, and as such is unacceptable.

  • clhess

    Isn’t it strange that no one is talking about the fact that Newt Gngrich abandoned his children to starve with no child support at the same time he left his first wife? It makes one wonder where so-called Christians get their religion. It’s certainly not from the Bible which says an individual who doesn’t support his own family is worse than an infidel.

  • http://sprint/yahoo kittycat78

    The author of this piece of trash did say it was his personal opinion, right? I don’t believe he knows people as well as he thinks he does. He was correct about one thing though. Because of the inept ability of the people in the media to take into consideration the American Christians ability to forgive a person who has already sought forgiveness from our maker they most surely push to elect not who the people want, but who THEY and the GOP establishment want. Mitt Romney!! There are people like me out there, who are trying, despite our own candidates ever growing jealousy, to look past who Gingrich was to who he is now. I think I’d have some kind of attack if the conservative media left the bashing of Gingrich up to the liberals. They should try showing a little decency and a few smarts about why the GOP establishment DOESN’T WANT Newt Gingrich. They won’t be able to run him and they are scared to death, along with others, they will lose control over their set ways. Gingrich, despite your opinions, would never put up with a lot of the crap going on in the House and Senate. Why do you stay blind to this fact. No one is perfect and Gingrich has changed. I was here during his problems, but in the final analysis, but I sure do resent the conservative mindset when it starts to show up like a liberal. Refuse to see the truth of the mattter before it. I do not want another weak pretty boy with the inability to restore a Christian nation because he is more concerned with becoming a diety himself, or because he looks better in his suits. Do this and the Lord God All Mighty will turn His back. This election is the biggest test of faith this nation has ever faced and we had all better get out of the ruts we selfimpose and do what is right for the greater good. The biggest travesty is when popular conservative media try to sink our own ship because they truly believe, in some cases through their over educated minds, that they even begin to think like the everyday person out here, and they do a lot of damage. God help our suffering nation and its people. I’m 78 years old and the only thing I’ve wanted for myself was to grow into some of the wisdom my mother had.

  • Stephen Czaja

    Rick Perry can not speak! or think.
    no than you we already tried a Texas Governor a few years ago and he gave us Obama.
    Re-think Bachman.
    Lincoln was a congressman too. remember your history?

  • Uncle Sam

    I remember when Ronald Regan, the “Bedtime For Bonzo” movie star was so feared by the Republican Party. What kind of president would Ronald Regan make and they all came after him because he was an egotist who started out as a Democrat.

    The only candidate who can tear Obama a new backside in a debate is Newt Gingrich. Gingrich brought this country back from a 40 year Democrat Congress with his “Contract with America” and influenced Ronald Regan to become a great American president. Regan was married twice and a Hollywood type.

    Romney nor anyone else including Ron Paul MD, whom I worked around in the same town of Lake Jackson, Texas was considered a ripe nut laying on the ground.

    If you had choice to vote for Minnie Mouse or Barack Hussein Mohammad, who would you choose?

  • Blackfoot AZ

    Just remember, as said before, a conservative not voting is a vote for obama. Do you really want that? Get out and vote for the Republican that is running against obama. Remember, if you don’t vote you really don’t have anything to complain about. If you vote against someone you have a right to complain, if you don’t vote you have given up that right (in my opinion).

    GET OUT AND VOTE DANG IT!!!!!!

  • julie Metzler

    We all know we have to get Obama out of the White House before he ruins this country.
    All the Republican candidates have baggage.
    I believe that Newt is the only one that can beat Obama he knows this country he knows how to deal with foreign leaders.He also loves America.

  • WVF

    People, wake up and smell coffee or something! Whether it is Newt Gingrich or Mitt RINO Romney it matters little. Please stop this misquided attempt to push “I can’t hardly put a sentence together” Perry and poor old “the Fed is unconstitutional” Ron Paul, which I agree with, but they Perry and Paul cannot win! Newt, in a debate, will rip Obama a new one. That man has forgotten more than Obama has ever learned about this country. Here’s the bottom line: vote for Anybody But Obama (ABO 2012)!

  • Rock

    To me it boils down to who you can trust. I have been educating myself on politics these last few years because I do not like the way this country is going. I hear a lot of frustration from a lot of you out there who are looking for someone you can trust, because you have been lied to time and time again by both the big government dems and repulicans. You are tired of the political system that keeps the politicians and big government rich because they steal from the people, taking their money and now our freedom. I judge people who I can trust by what they do rather than what they say, what their record shows versus what they claim their record is. If you can’t trust someone, how can you vote for them because they may do exactly the opposite of your core postions. My core position is a president who supports liberty for all people that is protected by our government (not taken away by them), following the rule of law, honesty, and following the constitution. The only candidate that I know will do this is Ron Paul, not based on his words, but based on his actions. Please consider my plea, all of you that hate him because he wants peace, why do you want to waste your vote again on someone you cannot trust? If you disagree with me, give me a candidtate backed up by his record, who you think is more honest than Ron Paul? God Bless you all, and be prepared for tyranny if you and I do not elect Ron Paul. His predictions came true for our countruy last election, and they are gimmer for the next four years if we do not turn this thing around…. we need a reboot, not a program change!

  • Bill Weston

    When Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House, he proposed a “Contract with America” and carried out of over half if it at a time when pundits claimed that he was crazy. Included in the “contract” was a balanced budget. What followed was a smear campaign that ousted him. Nancy Pelosi was involved in that campaign. Newt handled it badly and, as I see it, made amends. Furthermore, I don’t see Gingrich as a “rino” in spite of the current smear campaign. However, our country must get back to the principles that built it in the first place. Dr. Ron Paul, though a libertarian, is not a hedonist. He is probably the best exponent of the principles that we need and has a track record to prove it. Perhaps Paul and Gingrich should “team up”.

    • Old Eagle

      Before I can believe Gingrich is not a Big Government, Global Governance closeted Progressive, I’d like to hear a plausable explanation for his membership in the CFR.

    • cmvbih

      I’d rather Newt RENOUNCED his membership to the CFR and told The People the truth about the CFR: that it’s a one world global government pushing machine.

      This guy hits a lot of good points, mainly that Republicans are no better than Demos when it comes to shrinking government. The only problem more important than stopping government growth is stopping the growth of progressive believers in government, but of course any thinking person knows this can easily be the old, “killing two birds with one stone deal”.

  • PatriotRN

    I really like Rick San. standing up for the family – no more traditional families? – crime, poverty, govt. spending increases. Not just a social issue but an economic issue as well. Michele B. is very bright and fights in Congress for conservative causes. Mitt is too slick for me. Not sure about Perry. After reading Newt’s “Rediscovering God in America,” I decided to support him. I could be wrong, but I think he will lead us back to the America we all love. He understands history. I am curious who Lucile is supporting. Like her, I know that God is in control. May His will be done.

    • Dr. Real

      Our country is in a deep hole and we need to go beyond the Republican party’s preferred choice for the best candidate for the job…not the best father or husband. Times are different in 2011 from the 1990′s. We need an educated, deep thinking, common sense, and strong willed man – Gingrich.

    • Ted

      The trouble with Newt is that he wants to take our guns.

    • Phil

      People in hell want ice water but its not going to happen!!

    • Kate

      As a gun owner and a hunter, I would never support a candidate who wants to take away our guns. Obama on the other hands wants to take our guns and our national forests. Your statement about Newt is simply not true.

      He’s been given an A+ rating by the NRA and has been endorsed by Chuck Norris. Who wouldn’t endorse a soul who was for gun control.

      Gingrich is a firm advocate of a citizen’s right to bear arms.

      “The right to bear arms is not about hunting. It’s not about target practice … The right to bear arms is a political right designed to safeguard freedom so that no government can take away from you the rights that God has given you, and it was written by people who had spent their lifetime fighting the greatest empire in the world and they knew that if they had not had the right to bear arms, they would have been enslaved. And they did not want us to be enslaved. And that is why they guaranteed us the right to protect ourselves. It is a political right of the deepest importance to the survival of freedom in America.”

      Newt Gingrich

    • Kate

      Agreed and the sooner people realize this the better. I for one have no desire to see Moderate Mitt in office. He’s past flip flopping and straight on to bold face lies. Not a week and a half ago he stated he would keep ‘a large portion of Obamacare in place’! Five days later at the South Carolina debates when asked, ‘What would you do about Obamacare’? He stated ‘I would repeal it’. Really Mitt? Which is it? He’s talking for the election and not truthful facts. Does America really want another Obama? This guy couldn’t even beat McCain in 2008. America had better wake up and vote for a leader, rather their new best friend. The clear choice for the betterment of this country is Newt. Santorum’s not going to make it, Paul is crazier than a loon. Please people wake up before we find ourselves with another 4 years of Obama.

    I like Rick Perry very much too, but the problem with him is during the debate time I don’t know what happened to him. The presentation for the President is very important as well as his knowledge. He and Mitt Romney have a very good presentation, better than Obama. As every one knows that this is not the time for politics only, this is the time for creating Jobs. I think that is why Romney should be the nominee for the GOP. I don’t think I will ever regret for voting for him.

    Remember that one of the objections to Obama is that he has not had any real experience and that he is an acedemic however Newt is no different. He is a college man who only gives jobs to K Street types and does not have the necessary experience to lead the country. Obama would crush him in a debate, simply bring up all the stuff that caused him to quit (get kicked out) in the late 90′s. Ann Coulter has some good info on him, some of which even I forgot (and I am not a fan of Newt).

      Jerry, I said it was just my bold opinion. I’m for Rick Perry because I believe he has more honor in his little finger than Gingrich or Romney have in their entire bodies. I was a Bachmann believer until I found out that she voted for in-state tuition for the children of illegals in 2005 while in the Minnesota Senate and then started the nonesense that Rick Perry was soft on illegal immigration based on an Act of the Texas Legislature in 2001. Santorum simply isn’t able to close the deal and neither is Hunstman. I know Ron Paul has a following but the U.S. did not cause the 9-11 attack as he says it did. I believe Perry speaks truth and is trustworthy. We need someone like that at the helm not another slick talker. Iam not a country club Republican and the Democrats have gone Communist. Where do we turn? If we elect Perry it will be a Reformation of the Republican Party and the Tea Party will support him. The support for Gingrich will only be lukewarm. Is he pro-life? Does he believe health insurance should be mandatory? Does he believe in big government over small government? Can we trust him to be faithful? Why support him solely because we think he will be able to give a good debate against Obama? What if Obama says he won’t debate?
