For reference, a few from this 2004 endorsement are in the 2008 elections.
From the ORIGINAL Cache of the 2004 Republican National Convention
This is the brochure for the protest of the 2004 Republican National Convention.
This brochure is for the groups, Not in Our Name, Code Pink, RNC2DNC, MoveOn, Stonewall and name the group of the day.
There were a lot of thank yous that went out on the anti war protesters mails for all the inside help they had in getting the RNC schedule of events, guests and planning information so they could affectly assemble at all the events.
Look at August 29. A thank you party was held for the Log Cabin Republicans.
Everyone on that list except for Ron Paul is also a member of the Main Street group, not surprising.
Republican Main Street Partnership (George Soros is funding the Moderates)
Soros is paying them to repeat his talking points, not surprising either.
its log! its log
it's big, it's heavy, it's wood!
its better than bad its good
RMSP Reference thread BumP
I totally missed this when you posted it. Thanks. Ron Paul isn’t conservative republican, he’s not a libertarian (good point about personal responsibility), so just what is he?
I’ve loved some of his speeches and ideas over the years, but he’s over the edge.
>>>Ive loved some of his speeches and ideas over the years, but hes over the edge.
You are not alone. I have some of his writings linked to my blog.
I got suspicious of him when some of his supporters here started referencing MoveOn linked sites.
So I looked further. And there he was.
Thank you for responding :) Missed you.
I must say I’m impressed with the machine he’s got hitting all the polls. It’s gonna get real ugly before it’s over, huh?
Ugly? I think that is an understatement :(
I don’t think we realize what we are in for.
This election is for all the marbles.
I wish I understood what the significance of 2010 was.

Political Party Alliance
The National Stonewall Democrats
The National Stonewall Democrats is the nations only grassroots Democratic lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender organization. The Stonewall Democrats focus on making change in three ways; educating the LGBT community about the differences in the political parties, mobilizing the LGBT community on election day to get-out to vote for fair-minded Democrats and standing up against the Republicans when they attack our families and civil rights.
Dave Noble, Executive Director www.stonewalldemocrats.org
The Log Cabin Republicans
The mission of the Log Cabin Republicans is to work within the Republican Party to advocate equal rights for all Americans, including gays and lesbians. Log Cabin’s mission derives from our firm belief in the principles of limited government, individual liberty, individual responsibility, free markets and a strong national defense. We emphasize that these principles and the moral values on which they stand are consistent with the pursuit of equal treatment under the law for gay and lesbian Americans.
Patrick Guerriero, Executive Director www.logcabin.org

I see that Rudy Guiliani is a supporter of Stonewall.
Thanks for the ping.
Ron Paul is not "linked to" MoveOn.org...whatever that means. If there are sites or people who are sympathetic to MoveOn.org and like Ron Paul because he opposed the war in Iraq...so what? I don't let the leftists dictate my opinions. Here are some inescapable facts...US intelligence believes that the war in Iraq is increasing the number of jihadists....AQ has benefitted from the US invasion of Iraq. I post the same question to people on here again and again and never get an answer: why do you continue to support the invasion of Iraq and the continued US presence there if its helping Al Qaeda? I swear I think most people on here are less concerned with that fact than they are with admitting that maybe the leftists were right (for once) on this one issue
Islamic extremists are exploiting the Iraqi conflict to recruit new anti-U.S. Jihadists. Those Jihadists who survive will leave Iraq experienced in, and focused on acts of urban terrorism. They represent a potential pool of contacts to build transnational terrorist cells, groups, networks, in Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other countries.
--CIA Director Porter Goss, testimony to Congress, February 16, 2005
I can tell you this. In November or December of 2001, when, you know, America and coalition forces invaded Afghanistan, and fought the battle of Tora Bora, although we didn't capture or kill bin Laden or Zawahri or some of the other top lieutenants, Al-Qaida was essentially dead.
It was not only that most of the members had been killed or captured. It was repudiated throughout the world. And it -- you know, the internal documents show that they were in great despair. Unfortunately, Iraq has given -- the -- the war in Iraq has given them new life. And I -- I fear the progeny of Al-Qaida are going to be with us for a long time.
--Lawrence Wright, author of Looming Towers--Pulitzer Prize winning book on Al Qaeda
Michael Scheurer, former head of the CIA's Bin Laden desk on the invasion of Iraq:
if Osama was a Christian it was the Christmas present hed always asked his parents for but would have never believed it would actually be delivered. Ah it broke the back of American counter terrorism efforts and counter terrorism policy ah in many ways and I have to say Im not an expert on Iraq in terms of Saddams regime but before we went into Iraq we should have really balanced the two. Ah whatever the threats Saddam posed, what weve done by going into Iraq is basically validate what everything that al Qaeda has said about the Americans for the past decade in the eyes, at least in the eyes of Muslim. The Americans lust after ah Arab oil. Theyll destroy any Muslim government that stands up to them. Theyll destroy any Muslim government that threatens Israel. They will, they intend to annihilate Islam and occupy our sanctities while I bet no one even mentioned to the President before the invasion of Iraq that Iraq is the second most important place in Islam so ah in terms of what we have now, what we have is Afghanistan to the tenth degree because Afghanistan when the Soviets invaded was an Islamic backwater. It took a long time before the Middle East really began pumping fighters and money into Afghanistan. Iraq is smack in the heart of the Arab homeland and its going to be a magnet for Mujahadeen for the foreseeable future.
Online Presidential Debate 1.2 “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
Bryan Barton Bump!
Sen. Sphincter and Sen. Mc Stain. What a surprise. Not!
So we have two Republican presidential nominees who are Log Cabin Republicans - John McCain and Ron Paul.
Let’s remember that when we vote in the primaries.
Gay people have all the rights that we do, but they want SPECIAL rights, and they could ruin the lives of some children.
In Massachusetts Catholic Charities were forced to get out of the adopting business, because the law dictated that they had to adopt out to gay couples, which is against the Catholic religion.
Gay is a red herring. Sex and homosexuality was used to hide a political movement. That is what Hillary Clinton’s thesis was based on.
It is the political movement of the LCR that is the cause of alarm.
Remember, Fred Thompson wanted to throw our politcal platform out.
>>>Moderates Dole and Thompson tried to toss the platform out in 1996. Thompson called it useless ...
Why ALL Conservatives need to support Duncan Hunter - Including you, Mr. Limbaugh
>>>>Fred argued in 1996 to do away with the GOP platform and considered abortion to be a distracting issue. <<<<

But out numbering the conservatives with the ‘LCR’, you essentially enter into a one party system.
