Stirring the pot again?
That wasn't the question.
"Is this a Rudy bashing post? Why don't you spend your time bashing Hillary?"
Why don't you spend your time at DU? Where's the Rudy bashing?
I dind't say they couldn't support who they choose, I didn't say they shouldn't post here - that's not for me to decide.
Unlike politically correct liberals and RINOS, I still believe in the Bill of Rights - all of it.
But I can and WILL continue to demonstrate the unsuitablity of this man as a Republican Presidential candidate.
I DID point out the TOTAL incongruity between the philosphy of this forum and Giuliani.
Why put the cart before the horse?
But who you going to vote for if it's between Rudy and Hillary ... or Rudy and Obama? None of the above? Guess who wins?
We agree completely!
Why don't you read and learn?
BTW, Welcome to FR.
...lol...hell, Pres Bush doesn't fit into some of those categories ......
don't know what that is and don't act like you don't see the Rudy bashing on this website.
Wow. Pretty soon there will be a loyalty test to continue membership in FR. Are you planning a nice Stalinesque purge of all Rudy fans, like myself?
I don't know.
But if you asked Rudy Giuliani himself, I'm sure he'd have an answer for you. I'm of the opinion, why bother! If the ACU was evaluating Giuliani on his "conservatism", they'd probably give Rudy a rating of about 20. About the same rating they give to old Joe Lieberman.
Go Rudy Go! He will do a lot more for us than Hillary Clinton.
Look at his RECORD - it speaks for itself.
And the last time I checked the Second Amendment hadn't been rescinded. But then, Rudy isn't President - YET.
And no less a Constituional scholar than Mark Levin has pointed out the legal flaws in Roe versus Wade. As a conservative I am aware of the moral ones already.
Hmmm...it's only March 3, 2007. Looks to me like there's plenty of time to make sure that's not the choice good Conservatives are forced to make, so that's really a silly push-pollish kind of question.
This is the time for shilling for your personal favorite candidates for the '08 elections.
But after the primaries, I hope the losers on FR put aside their differences and jump on whichever bandwagon happens to be the one chosen to lead our movement and our nation, because if the single-issue voters on FR fail to mobilize behind whoever wins our primary, we may end up tossing our nation to the liberal wolves.
But for now, everybody should shill for their favorite, as long as they understand that the winner gets 100% of our support after the dust settles.
Damn it, I can't find the article, but just a few weeks ago, there was a National Review article from 1994 that talked about the race in Tennessee in 1994, and it stated that "While both candidates describe themselves as pro-choice, Thompson favors parental notification and opposes partial-birth abortion, while Cooper has supported both." or something to that effect.
Anyhow, the info is out there, trust me. He ran as pro-choice in 1994, and he never changed those views, at least publically.
I have railed on a number of freepers in regard to election 2006 for failing to select the lesser of evils in the Congressional election.
I do however believe that in the present political season far in advance of the presidential election, we should push hard for conservative values. This means Giuliani, McCain and others deserve to be pummeled by conservative advocates.
I prefer Duncan Hunter and a number of other true social conservatives over either of these. I think Freepers should feel happy to press all candidates toward more true conservative values. The media certainly is not doing this.
I will say that in the end of it all, it is hard to conceive of any justification for standing by while Hillary wins. But for now, we must press for true conservatism.
