"Everywhere except in the polls."

Actually Gallagher is not that far behind, and conservatives can help Gallagher by writing letters to editors, calling talk shows, and of course, posting to get the facts out.

SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE LEADERS UNITE BEHIND TOM GALLAGHER

ORLANDO – Dennis Baxley, State Representative and Chair of the Social Conservatives for Gallagher Steering Committee, today participated in a statewide conference call of several high profile social conservative leaders on topics ranging from abortion and adoption to the marriage amendment and the expansion of gambling. The Social Conservatives for Gallagher are continuing to build grassroots support for Tom Gallagher’s campaign among values voters in the upcoming election.

“I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of support we have received from Florida’s families and social conservatives. Our next Governor must have a clear and concise vision to expand on Jeb Bush’s conservative leadership of our state,” said Tom Gallagher. “I have taken clear stands and laid out specific policy proposals on social conservative issues such as same sex marriages, abortion and adoption. As Governor, I will continue to stand on our conservative principles and values.”

“Florida needs a governor who will take a strong stand for Florida’s families. The only acceptable candidate for governor is Tom Gallagher,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “He is the only candidate who has consistently and unequivocally taken pro-family positions on abortion, same-sex marriage and homosexual adoption.”

Tom Gallagher is the only candidate for Governor of Florida who is running a campaign consistent with the core values of the Republican Party. Tom Gallagher is pro-life and will advocate for laws to limit the number of abortions in Florida. Tom Gallagher will work to encourage and increase the number of adoptions in our state through expanding the One Church One Child Program, and opposes gay adoption. Moreover, Tom Gallagher is the only candidate for governor with a 100% pro-life voting record and who has been consistent in his support for an amendment to Florida’s constitution defending marriage as the union between a man and a woman.

“The Republican Party needs a candidate that upholds the principle that every human being, born or unborn, young or old, healthy or disabled, has a fundamental, individual right to life. There is no question that Tom Gallagher is the right candidate to defend our values,” said Barbara Collier, Chairman of the Broward Christian Coalition. “As a father and a family man, Tom has stood with us to defend innocent life, oppose the redefinition of marriage and promote the values that make our families stronger.”

The social conservative leaders (Organizations listed are for identification purposes only) participating on today’s call are as follows:

Dennis Baxley, State Representative; John Stemberger; Anita Staver, Liberty Counsel; Carole Griffin, Eagle Forum; Barbara Collier, Reclaiming America; Bob Touchston, Florida Right to Life; Pam Olsen, Bush-Cheney ‘04

Other Social Conservative leaders who are supporting Tom Gallagher but were unable to participate on today’s conference call:

Susan Cutaia, Citizens for Science and Ethics; Pat Neal, Chairman of the Board for the Christian Colition of Florida; Mat Staver, Liberty Counsel

FV SAYS: At an early organizational mtg, we learned that Tom Gallagher is Catholic and his wife attended Notre Dame. I would think Florida Catholics would be signing on to support Tom Gallagher. His wife Laura leads a major women's prayer group.

Charlie Crist has never said exactly what his faith is. If he wants to be a leader, he should be forthcoming about his beliefs before the primary. Private citizen - quite possibly it's none of my business but constituents have a right to know a candidate's beliefs.

Judge Whittemore defied Congress when he refused to allow Terri water and nutrition. He refused to hold a de novo hearing too which is what he was supposed to do. That is why Tom Delay blew a gasket. Judge Whittemore made sure that Terri never got another droplet of water or any Ensure from the day her feeding tube was removed until the day she died.

Judge Whittemore, HOWEVER, is looking out for Bucanneer football fans. He ruled that pat-downs under Homeland Security guidelines were unconstitutional. Brutally killing someone as they killed Terri Schiavo is okay by him but football fans must be protected by the constitution! Remember when the Roman Empire through the Christians to the lions in the colliseum. I'm just sayin' sounds like contemporary Florida to me.

Judge Greer may finally be in hot water. Stay tuned. Keep your fingers and toes crossed. Maybe Rep. Dave Simmons is keeping his promise about impeaching Greer??? Remember George Greer is Charlie Crist's buddy. Since Greer was hailed by Charlie Crist as a hero, don't count on the investigation to be done by primary day. Imagine Crist explaining how his murderous hero friend, with his local cronies helping, cheated in his judicial election and it led to Terri's murder.

All Crist could do is disavow Judge Greer which he can't because the Semblers have a strange hold on Greer and crist. Those Semblers may be rich but they are pushy rich, not benevolent rich imo.

Re-posting recent email to Dave Simmons, Fla Judiciary Committee:

I am your Constitutent in re: your position on the Judiciary Committee. I am still waiting for you to take action to impeach Judge Greer.

How can you sleep at night with a criminal on the bench pulling $140K a year and bennies?

Many people know that Florida accommodates corrupt, activist judges. PAUL TIMMERMAN reports that you were thinking about impeaching Judge Greer. Please think harder. By the time you make up your mind, he will be retiring on my dime. Even old guys don't get a pass if they have broken the law. Not even the well connected Judge Greer.

http://www.judgegeorgegreer.com/

Will you defend the Constitution or corrupt judges?????? PLEASE VISIT XXX, READ about Greer's latest pass on his lawlessness. At XXX, scroll down AND LOOK AT JUDGE GREER'S 2004 TV COMMERCIAL. This is an exact duplicate of his commercial. Judge Greer should have been disqualified from the 2004 election but since the JQC consists of his cronies, they didn't bat an eye at ANY complaints registered w/them and if you checked with them now, they have had ample time to shred & delete if you will.

Please save it all on a floppy disk and study xxx's article carefully. Please download the tv commercial. If you want the "original", SUBPOENA ME AND I WILL GLADLY TURN IT OVER TO YOU.

Do something brave and honorable.

IMPEACH JUDGE GEORGE GREER. Thank you.

Florida politics dominate the news this morning...

Crist, the state attorney general, also has antagonized the Right to Life community by staying out of last year's Terri Schiavo debate, saying the state had no place to interfere with court rulings that allowed the removal of a feeding tube from the severely brain-damaged woman, who later died.

Gallagher, Florida's chief financial officer, supported intervention efforts by the Legislature's Republican majority and Congress. He also was the lone gubernatorial candidate to take part in a Schiavo rally last year at the state Capitol.

Crist further distanced himself from social conservatives by breaking with President Bush over his veto last month of legislation allowing federal funding of advanced embryonic stem-cell research, a veto Gallagher applauded.

He also said he was the one who put a bipartisan coalition together to keep the state out of the Terri Schiavo case for the second time. Both Republican senators from Polk, Sens. Paula Dockery of Lakeland and J.D. Alexander of Lake Wales, were in Smith's coalition, Smith said.

"Let's face it. The next governor, even a Democrat, will have to deal with a Republican Senate and House. It has to be someone with a proven track record of consensus building," he said.

Meanwhile, Democratic voters face a choice between two little-known candidates who differ little on the issues. Both want to invest more money in schools and attract more teachers with better pay. Both talk up their leadership fighting intervention in the Terri Schiavo case, and both say they have a knack for reaching across party lines to get things done.

The shadow follows Lieberman...

"I don't think we want Washington, D.C. to be a club for career politicians," Lamont said during a recent interview with editors at Hometown Publications.

Lamont, 52, said three key issues inspired him to challenge Lieberman in the Aug. 8 Democratic primary: the Terri Schiavo case, Alaska's "Bridge to Nowhere," and the government's failure to change its stance on the war in Iraq.

Democrat Edward M. "Ned" Lamont may have been a relatively unknown, small-town politician a year ago. But many in the state now know him as David taking on Goliath.

In the August 1 first debate between Gallagher and Crist, Crist seems to think he can distinguish each person's health care needs and which persons deserve what health care.

The Schiavo case was sad, incredibly so. But it is over. Blaming Charlie Crist is insane. Blaming Jeb, or King, or anyone else is insane. One man had the legal authroity to make the decisions related to Teri's life and that man was her husband. No one else even deserves mention - not the judge, not the politicians. Michael made the dreadful choice, so if you want to blame someone, blame him.

A piece of advice to my friends in FL: If you insist on making your campaigns this year 2 issue battles - Schiavo and Abortion - you are going to lose election after election after election.

If Mr. Schindler insists on being politically active he risks becoming the Cindy Sheehan of the right.

Crist should have the death of Terri on his conscience as long as he lives. But I doubt if he really cares.

I will never forget the image of that young Christian boy stepping forward to bring a cup of water to Terri, and then being harshly arrested by the death squad cops of Florida.

BlueNgold,

With all due respect, it isn't over because people remain horrified and they're horrified because what happened to Terri can happen to any of us. Michael Schiavo is primarily responsible for her murder, but so many other people were complicit. Apparently AG Crist was one of them. Crist is supposed to be a public servant but he failed to protect an innocent woman. Judge Greer also broke the law by appointing himself her guardian - yet he never attempted to meet the woman, then sentenced her to death. There were plenty of legal opportunities for all the public officials involved to save her life. Because Terri's death was a horrible injustice, the Schindler family has said they want to help save lives and spare other families the same heartbreak. So that is nothing like Cindy Sheehan, who calls all attention to herself and her political motives. In other words, the Schindlers are good Americans and good Floridians warning their fellow citizens.

Whatever one may say or wish, the issue of Terri plays heavily still, and appears in other key races outside Florida as a critical factor. The issue keeps emerging in the assault by the far left on democrat Joe Lieberman not being left wing enough.

Lamont has countered this by drawing attention to other controversial aspects of Lieberman's record, such as his support of Congress' intervention in the Terry Schiavo case and his backing of the No Child Left Behind Act (which is the subject of a class-action lawsuit from dozens of Connecticut school districts).

Equally unjustified is the Lieberman campaign charge that Lamont is a one-issue candidate driven by the left fringe. Make no mistake: Businessman Ned Lamont is a very mainstream Democrat. His candidacy would have no legs if limited to the left or to the war. If, as appears likely, Ned wins Aug. 8 - after starting 50 points down, despite being outspent nearly 2 to 1, and with negligible support from the Democratic establishment or from liberal interest groups, including the party's largest left-wing constituency, organized labor - it is because mainstream Democrats feel deserted by Joe not just on the war, but on most major issues in these critical times.

I said this at the time.

If we define brain death as dead, then Terri Schiavo was dead. The eye movement, of which so much as was made, was merely a vestigal nerve response. The optic portion of her brain was gone, I believe atrophied, and she was not cognizant of light; her movement merely being that of sympathic nerves. The autopsy bore that out.

I didn't know that we define blind people as brain dead as you imply.

Regardless, there is a problem with what you say. There is medical evidence that supports that dehydration causes Acute cortical blindness. We all can agree that Terri was dehydrated, right?

Btw, what was your previous screen name? I just like to know to who I am responding to.

>> If we define brain death as dead, then Terri Schiavo was dead.

If you are saying Terri was brain dead, you are demonstrably wrong. Brain death is a specific medical diagnosis based on rigorous tests and conditions. It is defined as a complete cessation of brain function, including the brain stem. Therefore, a brain dead patient cannot survive without a respirator. Terri could breathe unaided and that alone will tell you she was not brain dead.

>> I didn't know that we define blind people as brain dead

Drs. Cranford and Hammesfahr, representing opposite sides of the legal dispute, both found that Terri had some vision, though of course it was very poor. These were clinical tests, which are substantially more reliable than an autopsy finding. If Dr. Thogmartin is correct that Terri was cortically blind, almost certainly the loss of her remaining vision was caused by the dehydration.

Please ping the list...

TIMING OF THIS HEARING COULDN'T BE WORSE FOR CRIST. HIS HERO IS IN HOT WATER...Judge Greer has a court date in PENSACOLA on August 18th with the Florida Elections Commission. It appears they are finally looking into Judge Greer's violation of the judicial canons in his 2004 race.

It is a sticky wicket because everyone in the tv spot are Crist cronies from the county that makes Cook County in Chicago blush.

If the FEC has the integrity that the JQC lacks, maybe Greer will finally get the boot. Remember, Judge Greer was called a hero by Crist at a big trial lawyer convention at a West Palm Beach County. Judge Greer mandated the murder of a disabled woman after giving all of her rehab monies to right to die lawyers that REPRESENTED HER ADULTEROUS HUSBAND. THEY WERE NOT HER ATTORNEYS - death obsessed, driven trial lawyers. TERRI SCHIAVO WAS ROBBED BEFORE SHE WAS STARVED/DEHYDRATED TO DEATH.

Crist didn't stop them from killing her or from ROBBING HER FOR THAT MATTER.

He embraced them the right to die scum and in so doing, also the ACLU. He was a lousy AG, so why should he be promoted to be a lousy governor?

I was out today and I wasn't discussing politics but other people were. Seems that Charlie Crist is Florida's Al Gore. Everyone is making fun of him. I had no idea. People from St. Pete are really laughing at Crist's expense. That's what happens in SOCIAL PROMOTIONS. Apparently, CRIST hasn't changed since high school.

CHARLIE CRIST has poor judgment choosing his acquaintances. Crist and Greer are thick as well, thieves.

Terri Schiavo had no directives, she was never represented by counsel (WHERE WAS CHARLIE CRIST?) He should have stepped in and represented her interests but he couldn't because of AMERIKA'S VORST JUDGE GREER who belongs in prison along with the former Sheriff and the State Attorney. Crist's FL AG office told callers that they "didn't have a civil rights dept." His staff was even LYING to avoid helping Terri Schiavo. They followed orders because Greer had to make sure that he could have Terri starved/dehydrated to death. Got it?

Pensacola, August 18th. Greer's violations being heard. Greer is one of Crist's judicial heroes because GREER killed somebody?

Oops. That's what happens when a dunderhead like CHARLIE CRIST gets a social promotion. He was a total failure as FL AG except he did a fine job of handing his troubles over to Jeb. I wish Jeb would quit protecting Crist. It is SO OBVIOUS.

The question is: What happens when a Judge conducts an ILLEGAL CAMPAIGN, along with the Sheriff, the Public Defender, the Prosecutor and a Deputy Cunningham in a tv ad that is all over the internet if it LEADS TO SOMEBODY'S DEATH because the tv spot was illegal and also misleading. The voters imo believed they were voting for a criminal court judge. They were totally fooled. The commercial did not specify that Judge Greer was a guardianship judge. It was very misleading. THROW THE BOOK AT HIM AND HIS LITTLE FRIENDS TOO.

If the FEC says that tv spot is okay, then they are also violating Florida's campaign laws. Remember that campaign laws for judges are a lot stricter than for politicians. If the FEC clears GREER, it's hammer time again. We'll get their phone number up and also their email address.

Is anybody in Florida capable of following their oath of office? I'm just askin' for one honest person who puts justice over political gamesmanship. Is there one?

Terri was murdered. They can't have a mulligan on killing her. She's gone.

By the way, my office tv is burnt out. We haven't had any big lightening strikes and my clocks work but my tv is absolutely shot.

Can you imagine creating a coalition to MURDER SOMEONE? J. D. Alexander and Paula Dockery are in the Gang of Nine Jpeg with Jim King, Burt Saunders, some other ladies who don't look like they'd ever get their hands dirty, NANCY ARGENZIANO, MIKE BENNETT and three more joined the COALITION OF THE WILLING TO KILL AN INNOCENT WOMAN!

I'll find the jpeg and we will re-post it. There's another woman and a few more men who joined the COALITION TO KILL TERRI, to vote against her life...

The state may seem to run on time so to speak, but Tallahassee is a mess. I believe Jeb knows it and he's getting while the getting's good.

bluengold, do you realize that Terri Schiavo was not represented by counsel? The right to die lawyers were Michael Schiavo's lawyers. They wrote all the orders which went to Judge Greer but it was Judge Shames who first got the bright idea to yank Terri's feeding tube.

Since Terri had no counsel, she was denied a fundamental right of every American. Charlie Crist had a duty as Fl AG to investigate all the intricacies of Terri Schiavo's circumstance. He couldn't do that because of his ties to the Pinellas judicial tyrannists, to the Sheriff and to the State Attorney anad also his relationships with DCF and ACHA.

There was an investigation and the investigator was told to drop it even though he was making progress as far as all the violations and wrongdoing against Terri Schiavo. Who told the investigator to call it off? CHARLIE CRIST'S CURRENT ADVISOR, CLAY ROBERTS.

Crist's current advisor was responsible for stopping the ongoing investigation that was "founded".

Crist was directly involved. Directly. He cannot say he's pro-life. He can't do that because Clay Roberts, his current advisor stopped the investigation and who told Clay Roberts to stop it? CRIST for GREER?
