Skip to comments.Sam Brownback for pres
Posted on 01/23/2007 4:40:16 PM PST by dudewheresmytank
I have decided, after much prayerful consideration, to consider a bid for the Republican nomination for the presidency.
I am running to spread hope and ideas. We are a blessed nation at an important crossroads. War, corruption, disintegrating families, and for some, hopelessness, tear at the American Dream. We need hope and ideas.
I am running for America to be of service in a crucial time of trial.
Ours is an exceptional nation. A nation between two oceans made up of people from every nation on earth. A great nation united by our ideals. But we are a great nation because of our goodness. If we ever lose our goodness, we will surely lose our greatness.
We believe in a culture of lifethat every human life is a beautiful, sacred, unique child of a loving God.
We believe in justice for allat all times.
We believe in liberty.
But the central institutions that best transmit these valuesthe family and the cultureare under withering attack.
We must renew our families and rebuild our culture!
We need to revitalize marriage, support the formation of families, and encourage a culture of commitment.
We need a culture that encourages what is right and discourages what is wrongand has the wisdom to understand the difference.
Each generation of Americans is called upon to carry the torch of virtue during its brief season. If one generation lets the torch fall, its light is extinguished for all future generations. Thats a big responsibility, but we can achieve it if we pick up the torch with courage, generosity, and realism. We must meet and fulfill the job we are called to accomplish in our day. The time to act to insure our future as a nation is now.
Problems abound. The federal government wastes and spends too much. We lack compassionate yet practical programs to help the poor here and around the world. We need energy independence and alternative, clean-burning, domestic-grown fuels. The scourge of cancer has killed too many and must be stopped. We need term limits for judges and members of Congress like we have for the President. We need a flat tax instead of the dreadful, incomprehensible tax code we now have.
And we need humility.
While I am proud to be an American, when I consider my citizenship and the responsibilities it carries today in the light of eternity, I am more humbled by it. We have been given much and will be held to account for what we have been given.
I ask mostly for your prayers. Pray for America, that our division as a people might end and that our land be healed.
Thank you for your interest and support. Thank you for your prayers. Please join our campaign of national renewal and hope for the future!
God Bless you, and God Bless this nation we love so dearly,
Didn't he just oppose the Pres on the war strategery?
The more the merrier.
I loved Brownback till he went squishy on Iraq. He's lost me now.
Sam, you're sort of full of yourself.
Personal freedom matters.
Good Luck Sam!
Anybody who openly opposes the CIC in time of war, is No conservative friend of mine.
You are toast.
There are only two things Brownback is conservative on -- abortion and gay marriage. Everything else.....well, the liberal streak comes out.
Cut and run Brownback. See ya.
A true conservative is going to emerge as the alternative to the McCain-Giuliani-Romney media contest. Senator Brownback, despite his waffling on Iraq and is Bush-like support for illegal immigration, has a shot at that. If he is that candidate, I will support him. But I hope it's someone else.
Was the name Brownback or Turncoat? If you don't support our troops, we won't support you, Senator.
Against the war in Iraq but for sending money to Africa to cure AIDS......give me a break.
no, he also supports flat tax rates and supports bills to keep feds from interfering with churches, he opposes same sex marriage. if you compare him to the others hes the best we're gonna get
He is the darling of that scum racist group La Raza
if you vote based soley on iraq, you're gonna be dissapointed. most republicans are turning away from it too, but at least he isn't a muslim apologist
Brownback , Tancredo and Duncan Hunter are neck and neck to see who comes in dead last in the GOP primaries.
"if you compare him to the others hes the best we're gonna get"
No. Duncan Hunter is the best out of all the Republican candidates so far. Tom Tancredo probably comes in second.
believe it or not, i haven't heard anything about hunter, or tancredo, never hear about them. it's only those main three and brownback i hear about here in kansas
How many votes will he get from currently illegal aliens once he votes to give them, and all their relatives, amnesty?
Thanks to all contributors to this thread. Educational. BTTT.
Brownback impressed me on the border and disgusted me on Iraq. He really has been acting the fool the past few months.
Spineless, and not getting my support.
Just like McStain, if he wins the primary, he'll have my vote, but I don't trust him to not go wobbly on the WoT and will not support him in anyway before that point.
