I did you are already the insult monitor.
"You'll have to ask them."
But according to areafiftyone, "them" are nothing but mindless robots voting however they're told.
I still await her defense of post #17 on this thread.
He may destroy Hillary, but he will destroy the gun owners next. No Rudy.
Yes, it's his site, his rules, and he manages it; however, once this site is turned into a one candidate promoting site, with all other views banned, then the LLC nature of the rules come into play and FR becomes an illegal political arm of that candidate.
The party line? What's that?
You can say that again!
It is Fred Thompson, Duncan Hunter, or nobody. No one else will get a penny from my checkbook in 2008. Ok, Chuck Norris, but no one else!

We're speaking at cross purposes here.
I don't have any illusions about convincing single issue pro-gun, or single issue pro-life, or single issue pro-family voters that Rudy is "their guy".
He's not, quite simply. And if they can find a candidate to support who better reflects their values, by all means, support him or her.
My point is rather that the internecine savaging (of Giuliani or any other candidate) only serves whoever the dems put up. It serves no constructive purpose whatsoever. That was the reasoning behind Reagan's 11th commandment.
I honestly think that the GOP will not care what socons think and nominate Guiliani.
"Lame eating of one's own like that is not very productive."
Speaking for myself, I have but one thing in common with Rudy the G-man. We are both registered Republicans. Beyond that, we share no political or social values. He should do the right thing now as he has done in the past...switch parties.
I am a housewife who does a few other things.I am dumb-heeehe.Answer my question please.
I honestly think that the majority of GOP primary voters are pro-life and pro 2A.
Sorry to hear that you have such a negative view of the GOP voters.
Thank you, but I am well aware of the founder's vision, having been on FR since 1999.
Going to great lengths to pontificate upon the obvious is generally construed as a lecture. Your mileage may vary.
I think Giuliani provokes a high level of anxiety that results in incredible emotional overflowing. Sometimes that is a good thing for a candidate, but in his case it is not.
Most Americans I know put abortion in their top five concerns. Polls are entertainment but they do not tell me what I can observe in my own world, so I don't see confirmation of your point about most Americans and this issue. Perhaps I will see it after these primaries and the election but not now.
Having Republican presidents alone does not mean that Roe will change. There must be court appointments etc. that turn the tide of judicial review. Of course, if the Republican Presidents had used the Executive Order in the way that Bill Clinton did then they could have changed Roe in a number of ways. But in general Republicans do not like rule by Presidential decree.
