Skip to comments."You and I have a rendevouz with destiny"---Ronald Reagan (1964)

I heard a speech the other night, on Mark Levin's radio show. Yeah, it was that "second rate movie star", Ronnie Reagan. Yeah, the Gipper. But he spoke and I listened, riveted to my car radio to the last fifteen minutes of his speech about supporting the soldier and our country because it is the only world we know and the only country that we will ever have if we choose to keep our values and moral center HERE - or what is left of it.
The speech was given on behalf of Barry Goldwater and given in 1964. It is amazing! Here it is:
My wanting anyone from the DEM Party in '08 is ludicrous. Hillary? - NO WAY. Obama? NO WAY IN HELL. And I was a Democrat for many, many years. Trust me. We are how we are raised. Good Jews are usually good liberals. That is the way it is - Mad for Adlai and all that. But they have no values that stand up in in age of discord.
I guess now I too am like Mr. Reagan - when he turned a certain age he woke up and changed values. Never thought I would say that!
I am having a hard time deciding between two of the candidates:
I have been watching Mike Huckabee lately, and as many of you who ready my 'silly' (sic) blog know, he helped save my life with his book, and the principles of AA (he is addicted to flour and sugar, as I am, see my last post and http://www.abbebuckpr.blogspot.com/).
Mike Huckabee may be the right man for the job of Commander in Chief. He is doing ALL if the right things for visibility, which is making me beam with pride. Nor is Mike Romney-flipping or Ron Paul -flopping. I even toyed with the idea of FRED THOMPSON 2008 who has had Reagan's ideals from Day #1. I still want to see more of Fred. I need to hear more of Fred. I need to see more of Fred. We all do. He desparately needs Huckabee's newly found-visibility. Because I have heard Fred speak at the home of Bill Bell back in October, when George Allen endorsed him. I know firsthand that Fred has the values that Reagan spoke of in 1964. Come on Fred, you can do this!
Yes, this entry is from a now-little Jewish woman, and a former liberal Roosevelt Democrat from Chicago, Illinois,
Thompson campaign offices report financial status still quite viable.
There was a thread yesterday, saying he was running out of money. He had pulled ads, trips and so forth.
Their answer is he’s doing fine and definitely hasn’t reached the point of requesting matching funds.
Sounds like that article was lying...just more crapola in this election season...
I almost feel sorry for the Fred Thompson critics out there. Imagine how badly they want negatives on him, and how few negatives he actually has.
Gentlemen, there's one hell of a man named Fred Thompson, that in my book is a real American and he needs your help .
You should be ready to fight to defend the freedoms so many have given their all to protect and defend. If you think you can sit back and ignore the danger to our nation or if you think you can just ignore it and it'll go away, well mister you're dead wrong. Oh, and one other thing, these bastards we are fighting don't like you and never will like you. They just want to kill you and your family for their Allah. One other thing, some like ...what's his name ..Huckabuster or something like that...think if we will just talk with them we can make them our friends. What a bunch of horse manure.
Now before it's too late, get up from that comfortable couch , pick up the phone and tell someone on the other end, you're not taking this crap anymore. Call your state party officials, the NRA,, the Minute Men, or any other conservative group you can think of and tell them to get off their asses. You want a real conservative for your commander and chief, no pansy ass liberals need apply. Got it!
Me and some other real men are watching ,so don't screw it up
General George S. Patton Jr., Commanding
Get off you asses and get to work for Fred.
MINUTE MEN of America
NRA of America
We want to know.....what the hell are you waiting for?
Your endorsements could make the difference in the upcoming elections. If you haven't noticed, you have the perfect candidate in the race. The future of stopping illegal immigration and the individuals right to bear arms are at stake. Failure to give your support to the right person could cost all freedom loving Americans dearly. Your members want you to endorse a person that will stop illegal immigration and secure our rights to bear arms. A true conservative is the only choice, no liberal republicans or democrats need apply.
Everyone needs to call NRA headquarters / Minute Men headquarters today and voice our opinions. I have.
"When I am president, I will build a fence."
"My idea of gun control is a good, steady aim."
“You want a real conservative for your commander and chief, no pansy ass liberals need apply.”
This part never got through to Romney.
