I’m disappointed she didn’t change it to “Tea Party.”

I belong to a Catholic church. 99% are white
Does that make me a racist? This is wha you are implying.
Judging from the bumper stickers, I imagine half are Democrat. Does that make me a Democrat?
I have to agree that a non white male making president IS historic. It just wasn’t the right one.
Cain is still my man.
Yeah, no doubt... but she's just so way cool, and she, like, ranks out the media mega gnarly rad, duuude. I want to have her man-babies. That would be, like, so awesome! And I'd be like all... ya know!?
Just found out something. Karl Rove jumped in to support Cains opponent in Georgia. He threw the Republican machine at him.
Maybe next time Karl Rove bloviates he should give FULL DISCLOSURE
If anyone has $10,000 and likes to give for true blue conservative values, then God love ‘em. It is not the amount that has me concerned but the motivations of some donnors, take Solyndra as an example.
That is the question how do you know which ones are patriots and which ones want quid pro quo? Believe me, I have no objection to conservatives with honest motives giving mucho money to their favorite candidates. It is only when there is some personal benefit expected.
You are correct in a sense, as a Republican she is yesterdays news. As something else? Who knows.
I've listened to Palin, rather than read fairy tales into what she is saying as many have. If you heard her announcement that she is not running, she made it pretty plain her primary goal is defeating Obama - in fact she has clearly said ABO (Anybody But Obama) is the overriding issue in 2012 on other occasions as well. She made clear she was not running as an independent because it would make Hussein's re-election more likely. I am not saying Palin would endorse Romney in the primary process, I am saying she has made it clear she will help the Republican nominee win and there was no exception made for Romney or anyone else. Palin will endorse, support and campaign for the eventual Republican nominee.
As for me, Romney is flip flopping chameleon and one of the least desirable options, but I would most certainly vote for him over Obama. I doubt I could generate much enthusiasm for him (though I suppose if her chose a very conservative VP running mate it could help), but I'd certainly vote for him if he were the nominee. Paul is a clown and has zero chance of winning the nomination (nor does Johnson), so there is no reason to even consider such an event.
If Romney is the nominee I'll vote 3rd party or not at all for POTUS, but I will support all conservative Pubs I can. Right now it sure looks like it will be Romney.
Wrong. Your spreading a rumor that C4P has even owned up to. From C4P:
Update by Stacy: We have confirmed that Governor Palins Political Views designation on Facebook has always been listed as a Conservative. She has NOT recently made any changes to her Facebook profile. This was a rumor that got picked up by us. We apologize to Governor Palin for the error.
I think Palin’s best help would be flushing RINOs in primaries like our Dick Lugar here in Indiana, AND working to build a large majority in the Senate, no matter who is POTUS.
>I believe a Romney victory would actually be worse for the Republican Party than would an Obama victory. Im certain it would be worse for America, that they would be taken down a liberal road thinking they had chosen something different.
I think you should lay off the crack.
Here’s my answer: all it takes to be a good president is common sense.
There’s no such thing as good “governing” as distinct from any other sort of complex decision-making.
“Now, how does that record show any ability to run a country with a budget of trillions of dollars?”
If your standard for this “trillion dollar ability” is accurate, then there’s no reason to believe you have the experience merely to ask the question.
That is to say, working with larger or smaller numbers requires a only difference in mathematical calculation, not in the nature of practical application. A president simply has more people working under them than a corporate CEO.
(And of course, our goal is to decrease the former number.)
Let’s be honest. An individual with the amount of success in the private sector that Cain has, when combined with common sense conservatism, is very likely to be overqualified for the presidency. This is certain when you take into account current standards.
In terms of the battlefield, PD, I think it's better to face an enemy than a unrecognized traitor in your midst. The 2nd is deadly 24 hours a day, when the first only is deadly when in confrontation.
I ran a thread a month ago about pledging not to support Romney, and half the conservatives on FR agreed.
I'll not support Romney. Never. Not for any reason.
Years ago I considered myself a Republican. Then I shed that and called myself a conservative. Now all kinds of people are called conservative who I consider RINOs. So I call myself a Constitutionalist.
No need to "wonder" about the Perrys. God has already shown them the burning bush.
Or so says Anita.
Romney only recently converted from his Pro-Abortion position. Romney claims he will repeal obamacare, but it was his advisers who helped the Rats create it in the first place, based on his romneycare in MA. Romney has not been in favor of protecting marriage and has supported the pro-homosexual agenda in the past. I don't see a single thing in him that I value, so why vote for him if he is the nominee.
We have vetted Cain by listening to him on the radio for years and has always been consistant which by the way we have heard more from him than either of our senators and he is 10 times the conservative they claim to be.
If the GOP forces a RINO as a candidate, said candidate will lose. No doubt about it. But they’d rather lose than have a real conservative president. That’s how disgusting and evil the insider GOP elites are.
Hmm, interesting, Friendofgeorge, thanks for reporting.
I saw somebody post this info in a thread day before yesterday I think. When I read it I figured it was just a rumor to get folks stirred up. Apparently it ISN’T a rumor.
Things that make ya go hmmmmmm.........
I should have followed the link before posting. It was a rumor.
Check out JimRob’s thread if you haven’t seen it. You’ll like it, xzins!
Purpose of FR and why we can never support Mitt Romney

Exactly. Well said.
Never mind. Read entire post. Inappropriate interpretation SP’s Facebook representation. Nothing has changed.
>I went over to a business contact’s house for a job the other day (in the arts) and front & center on the console was a picture of the Obama family all smiling. God I almost spewed the coffee from my mouth. These libs are just whacked!!! <
You have no idea how many times I’m in a business meeting for new contracts and these clowns across the room inject their worship for the kenyan klown. The devil on my shoulder kept telling me to strangle these lib bastards right across the table.
Now I just show my hatred by obviously looking up and frowning and the other party gets it...until I jack up the contracts more in our favor. I am a vindictive right-wing pr*ck in the wrong city.
>LOL Pretty funny. To say something like that to a room full of libs you must be a really big guy or you were armed.>
I’m 6 ft tall and I hate libs. As a matter of fact, I even tried to “steal” one of the girlfriends of one of the loud Dems in the room just to make more of a point.
Right in front of him. Told the brunette, “Don’t you know Odumbo won’t be prez next year? Quit hanging out with this loser Obama ass-kisser and let’s go to the Ivy.” I’m not making it up. Jackhole hit me on the shoulder to smoke outside when me and my bud were going in for drinks and I...was...bored :)
Right, and when a person can not deal with the substance of a argument, they search for spelling/grammar errors. I expected better from you
Personally I would not have anything to do with a Church that had members that openly voted for infanticide and anti Christian values.
If the Pastor did not have the courage to tell it`s congregation what the Bible had to say about infanticide etc, then I would consider the Church to be a dead Church.
As for your racism comment, you ought to be ashamed of yourself for uttering it.
I would submit, that every “church” has sinners/flawed members in it, if it doesn’t, then it isn’t a true “church”. I’m sure you agree; I guess the question that may remain is what percentage are “sinners”, and which are in a state of grace. But that’s not really an issue, as a true Church can not and is not affected by that, as a true Church is guided and protected by the Holy Spirit, who can and does do as He pleases with the members, despite the sin within.
Consider Donna’s later point again. I too am Catholic, yet half of my Church are Democrats, of those, I’d bet maybe at least half are radical leftists (on average nationally).
So is membership in the Catholic church ok? If you say no, you clearly have some “number” in mind of “acceptable amount of sinners” in a Church body, so, which number is this and how do you come to such a conclusion?
If you say “yes”, then why is Catholicism ok, but why is Cain’s particular Baptist denomination not ok?
The point I’m trying to make is, and I believe this wholeheartedly, maybe Cain is trying to do something similar that I and other Catholics are trying to do in our Church: bring about a return to more traditional, “conservative” values within my (his) church. Just like many Republicans are trying to right the party.
Note, this is my reply to your point, which, don’t get me wrong, I believe is of concern. As I’ve said in the past, one’s faith is a powerful motivator for one’s daily life choices (or it should be). Thus, church affiliation is very important, IMO. It was clearly a good indicator of what kind of man Obama turned out to be.
What I tend to believe though, given the man I believe Herman Cain to be, is that he isn’t content with the slavish mentality in his own church either, much less in the country. I’m quite confident that, in his own way, he’s trying to show this to his fellow members in many ways that perhaps we don’t even see. But one way that’s quite obvious and public is his candidacy.
I’m not trying to suggest the only or even most important reason he’s running is to change his church. But it surely can’t hurt, to show those who typically believe anything Republican is “bad”, that a man who is of their same race, of their same background, can and will win not only the Republican nomination but the Presidency in November.
My only point to you is that there are two ways of looking at this: Either Herman Cain is some kind of Manchurian Candidate from some southern Baptist Church, or he is a man with principle who not only loves his church but his country. Either is a “possibility” I suppose; I therefore choose to believe the latter. There is no reason not to ascribe such positivity to the man.
I wasn't addressing your argument. I was addressing your grammar.
I expected better of you. :-)
This all came from me just asking 1 simple question....why has he not broken away from his ALL black Church?
The responses I got from some was basically that the question was out of bounds.
And again as a dirty rotten sinner myself, saved by the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ alone! I do not think it is too much to ask that all of us vote for the unborn, For Jesus/The Word of God to be welcomed in open society etc.
To vote against such things,certainly is to spit on Christ.
Now Cain as far as we know is on the right side of these issues! I am just asking the question, he says he is no longer with the plantation.
I am also skeptical of Perry and Bachmann for full disclosure. I asked the same question of Perry and I got the same angry responses that some have given me here.
Perry claims to weep for the unborn, yet as recently as 2008 he endorsed Rudy G for President, this same Perry missed the entire Reagan revolution.
ALSO... supporting abortion and the removal of Christ from classroom, public square etc, as do all people that vote Democrat....voting Democrat means liberal non Christian judges,it is not just the mark of a flawed person.This is a willful choice that some of these people are making, it is not “just politics” it has life and death results, and really no excuse for them before God.
“Maybe you’re a troll.”
An insane clown troll, at that!
Take care FRiend!
