Vanity: Alan Keyes for Senate
Aug 23, 2004 | Jim Robinson

I'll make this short and sweet (kinda like this is your brain, this is your brain on crack - any questions?).

a) Alan Keyes is an America loving, Constitution loving, Liberty loving, pro-life ultra conservative. We'd be ^damned lucky to have him in the Senate if we could get him there.

b) Barack Obama is an America hating, pro-abortion socialist communist. It'll be a dark day for America if he's elected.

Any questions?

Don't mince words. Tell us what you really think!   ; )

But seriously, there's no doubt that Keyes is a superior choice to Osama Obama.

Thanks Jim,

Some on FR have not figured that out.

How does Keyes stand a chance when so many on this very forum stand against him?

Judges and the WOT are secondary to making points. Haven't you seen it?

I'm just waiting for August 26, so my contribution won't show up on my credit card bill until October. (I'm a bit in the hole due to the care packages for the troops.)

Does anyone have contacts for Young Republicans in Illinois?

Lets get someone from the White House to get out there with Mr. Keyes. Who are the mid west coordinators for the GOP?

Thanks for your post. While no one has actually made fun of me for suggesting that Mr. Keyes has a chance to win, I'm sure some were just being polite.

I think we may all be surprised. Alan Keyes is an excellent candidate, and he may well take the position away from the annointed liberal Obama.

Alan Keyes would be a blessing for America!! Can you imagine someone in the Senate actually arguing from a Constitutional standpoint? I admit that his idea of debating the merits of an income tax exemption for descendants of slavery is a bit far fetched, but I think it'll make for an interesting debate all the same. And Obama was calling for a Lincoln/Douglas style debate anyway, so I say, bring it on! May the best man (and the best Constitutionalist) win!

Go Alan!!

A strange vanity, JR....most of us can't vote in this race. And, why would any conservative vote for a lib/dem anyway?

In the meantime, I'm not optimistic that the people of Illinois will do the right thing in this case.

Don't get me wrong. Yes, I think Keyes would make a terrific Senator.

He'd bring back the days when the Senate was a debating society that aired the great issues of the day with honor.

He's the conscience of the country; and I have learned a lot and changed some views because I listened to his cogent arguments.

But I never voted for him for President, because Presidents in dangerous times have to be willing to sacrifice their reputations to defend the country properly. Same reason I'd never trust Colin Powell with the job. My personal opinion.

Well, there's been a pretty strange debate (a vicious feud actually) running for the last couple weeks on FR between the Keyes supporters and his detractors. Personally, I see it as a no-brainer (I'll hate myself in the morning for using that expression) and don't see what all the fuss is about, but I've been asked to state my position. Here it is. I support Alan Keyes 100% for Senate and oppose Barack Obama 100%.

I'm from Georgia.... and in the words of that great movie line...."Miss Scarlett, I don't know nothin' 'bout bearthin' babies" in Illinois.

From another post:

Look whats going on in the GOP:

At the GOP Convention website, they've set up a webpage where ordinary folks like us can give input on what WE think should be the most important issues for the Republican Party this year. To do this, there is a drop-down menu which lists 20 different issues (including "other"). You can click on the issue which is "most important to you". With your input, they say, the party "will be well on our way to defining the GOP vision for America's tomorrows."

Sounds great. But if you look closer, you'll notice there are a few issues missing from the list they provide you to choose from... specifically, the issues that are most important to the GOP's conservative base!

There's no selection for "abortion" or "pro-life". There's no selection for "Second Amendment" or "guns". There's no selection for "immigration". There's no selection for "family" or "marriage". There's no selection for "religious liberty".

WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE THINKING? Without its conservative base, there would be NO Republican Party to begin with!




With Mr. Keyes in the Media constantly, we ARE hearing about these issues, something that I believe is important, not just for Illinois but for the entire Country. Keyes makes this race into a national race and his trouncing of Obama in the media daily and in the debates, will be national wupbutt on the democrats.

I believe its time to line up shoulder to shoulder at the line of scrimmage.
imho
