Dude, I never weighed in on the immigration issue on this thread.

I was suggesting that you chill with the insults as you discuss things among fellow conservatives.

Calling people stupid, or traitors, is not going to win arguments. It doesn't make this forum more pleasant. Show a little respect, that's all I'm saying.

I would happily support Thompson and Hunter. Not Rudy. And hell no to McCain.

In addition, for those who use abortion as a litmus test, a Hillary White House would pack every vacancy in the Supreme Court with Ruth Ginsburg clones and keep late term abortion as the U.S. law of the land for decades to come.

And a Giuliani White House wouldn't?.......... http://www.blogicus.com/archives/rudy_giuliani_is_not_our_man.php

From your link:

"COLMES: Now, Roe vs. Wade -- You are pro-choice. How important is it to you as a pro-choice Republican to have a pro-choice on the court as someone..."

"GIULIANI: That is not the critical factor. And what's important to me is to have a very intelligent, very honest, very good lawyer on the court. And [Roberts] fits that category, in the same way Justice Ginsburg fit that category."

Giulliani told Colmes that Roberts was a good choice, that abortion was not a litmus test and used Ginsburg's "intelligence" as justification for nominating somebody in the mold of Roberts.

If the choice in November 2008 is Giuliani vs. Hillary, here are the options:

1. Vote for Hillary and help Hillary gain the White House and guarantee more Ruth Ginsburgs on the Supreme Court and guarantee that late term abortions will be the law of the land for decades to come.

2. Stay home and help Hillary gain the White House and guarantee more Ruth Ginsburgs on the Supreme Court and guarantee that late term abortions will be the law of the land for decades to come.

3. Vote for the 2008 version of Ross Perot and help Hillary gain the White House and guarantee more Ruth Ginsburgs on the Supreme Court and guarantee that late term abortions will be the law of the land for decades to come.

4. Vote for Giuliani and have a chance that he may very well nominate more Roberts to the Supreme Court.

If the choice in 2008 is Giuliany vs. Hillary, I choose to vote Number 4 in the general election and I urge all other conservatives to vote Number 4 too.

If he would run, I think that Fred Thompson could have the charisma to pull a lot of those sheeple votes without demoralizing the base the way Giuliani at the head of the ticket would.

That is an issue that affects the primaries and I believe that Thompson could beat Hillary in a general election. There is no problem in voting for Thompson in the primaries.

The problem, however, is that far too many conservatives are saying that if the general election candidate is not a true conservative, they will throw their vote away or stay home and that guarantees a Hillary White House with all the horrors that would bring.

Fearless prediction..you heard it here, first..McCain will drop out before Thanksgiving, and endorse Rudy..

BTW..look for other conservatives, this summer and fall, to start endorsing Rudy...I predict Santorum, Coburn, Kyle, Cornyn, among others.. I suspect these are already locked up, and will be rolled out, one every few weeks...

I'm sorry, but the WOT does not justify me compromising my world view and my political beliefs...I don't think that anyone can justify a moral compromise in the name of safety.

That anyone could buy into that rational alone scares the beejeebees outta me.

Frankly, I no longer trust anyone in a political office....I certainly do not believe that the Government is capable or really interested in protecting me.

And a Giuliani White House wouldn't? http://www.blogicus.com/archives/rudy_giuliani_is_not_our_man.php

Blogicus? Please.

When you posted .."Giuliani White House wouldn't?" I knew you had the Ginsberg quote in mind. Republicans typically don't object to judicial nominees, because they have more respect for the institution that did the nominating, be it the President or some N.Y.C. Borough committee members.

What do you expect Rudy to say about Ginsberg on T.V., that she's a vicious baby-killing whore who consorts with the devil? It's called being gracious. Rudy has said he'd appoint judges like Alito or Roberts. Has he said he'd appoint judges like Ginsberg? Of course not. He knows Ginsberg and her type would be judicial activists. Rudy has said many times he is very much against judicial activism.

As for the other issue of Blogicus, quoting Connie Mackey from the FRC saying Giuliani appointed mostly liberal judges to NYC Municipal courts - she apparently doesn't understand, or investigate the procedure NYC has for appointing Muni. judges. FYI, they are vetted by NYC Borough members - some are not even lawyers. The mayor is given a list of who the borough members chose.

So if the neighborhoods in Dothan, Alabama were able to pick the judges that decided cases in their neighborhoods, where on the political spectrum would they be? That's right, as far to the right as NYC neighborhoods chooses far to the left.

From your link:...

I know what was said on the link. It said he has a history of appointing liberal judges. Of course he's not going to be foolish enough to come right out out and say he'd appoint Ginsburg clones when he's campaigning for the Republican nomination. But I have serious doubts about what kind of person he actually would put up if elected.

If the choice in November 2008 is Giuliani vs. Hillary, here are the options:...

How about if we work together to make sure that ISN'T the choice we have to make? If we have to have a government filled with Lincoln Chafee types because people say that real conservatives can't win, what have we gained?

In my congressional district, there was a lot of talk that we should nominate a moderate instead of Michele Bachman because she was just too conservative to win here. Michele wound up winning (at least in part) because the conservatives had somebody good enough for them to be willing to donate their time and money to help get elected.

Bush has almost lost a war that is of vital strategic interest to America by yielding the Bully Pulpit to Copperheads

Tom Friedman, whom I usually scorn for his relentlessly adolescent writing, made the point:

George Bush has lost the PR war to a bunch of people who blow up emergency rooms.

I'm going to thoroughly enjoy making the Dems talk about 911 every day throughout 2008.

You think that's going to make any difference? The Dems/Libs/Rhinos have there 911 stories down pat. It goes like this.....

It's Bush's Fault!

They will be supported by biased reporting in most sectors of the Press by negative stories on Iraq/Plamegate/Gitmo/etc.

The thought of facing God someday after knowingly supporting someone who supports abortion and homosexual marriage, strikes more fear in me then the thought of Hillary winning the election. Her reign will be short, but God's is forever.

Sincerely

BTW, this constant pro-Rudy posting in FR is about as convincing as the constant pro-Hillary ranting in the MSP.

What do I expect he'd say? I'd expect he'd say whatever he needed to get the nomination (ala slick Willie). I notice he's saying things now to soften his stance on gun control. When he starts making statements that are polar opposites to his demonstrated core beliefs, it makes me think he'd say anything that the polling tells him to say.

Just my thoughts.

You're claiming defending the Republic is pointless, so we might as well save our souls.

It is as if tax cuts, school choice, keeping nukes out of the hands of terrorists, preventing the Pelosi-Clinton government takeover of health care, keeping criminals in prison-- mean nothing to people if we're not on a 24/7 jihad against gays.

And throwing in the towel on defense and economics is the worst thing we can do. Social issues can always be changed. Roe v Wade was a judicial innovation in the 1970s, and it can be changed back. But once a Western democracy is saddled with government health care, it can never get rid of it-- one gets accused by people of the same mental aptitude as Francois that you hate the poor, the elderly, and the sick-- most people don't have the patience for careful argument. And once a great city like New York or Chicago is incincerated, we aren't going to get it back.

The problem with Rudy is that he is wrong on *all* the issues. Pro-life? Rudy's got a record of nominating democrats as judges by an 8-1 margin, supporting federal funding of abortion, and seeing abortion rights in the constitution. Support secure borders? Rudy's to the left of GW Bush on immigration, opposing English as an official language and turning New York into a sanctuary city. In fact, Rudy brings nothing to the table for conservatives of any stripe.

This time it's the liberal Boston Herald applying the lipstick to Rudy. Doesn't help though.

The left-wing media has two favorite candidates, and neither one is a Republican. They favor Rudy primarily because he will cost the Republicans enough votes to lose the election, thus securing a win for either Hitlery or Obama.

Hey, Sen. Daschel, there happen to be kooks everywhere and not all ideas were represented in those protests by just a few nutbags (probably paid for by The Workers Party) in assembly. It is more likely that the vast majority of immigrants were working a 12 hour day, that day, doing things that paid above minimum wage -- like framing/painting/dry walling a home, unloading a shipping container, or cleaning a retail store during non business hours.

Hell, if anyone can spot a nutbag, it would be someone with a penchant and proclivity for similar leanings...isn't that right, Puffster?

You're claiming defending the Republic is pointless, so we might as well save our souls.

No, that's a wrong analysis of my post.

I believe defense of our Great Country is important, but not more important then standing for certain moral issues, IMO. It's a matter of my priorities being different from yours.

My main priorities are filtered through my moral underpinnings. These underpinnings are found in my Christian beliefs. If I was to summarize the basics of how I filter my actions/priorities it would be thus:

1) Service to God
2) Service to my family
3) Service to my local community
4) Service to my country

As a Christian, the primary goal is to spread the Gospel of Jesus for eternal freedom from sin. It is not to spread the gospel of a democratic republic. I recognize that if all your treasures exist in the here and now, then defense of the Republic is number #1.

It might be helpful to you to recognize that the Christian wing of the Republican Party believes and lives this verses...

Mark 8:36-38 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Its MORE than just "gun control and abortion" - BOTH significant social issues.

Its also about illegal aliens and homosexuality.

Giuliani is just a fiscally conservative Democrat calling himself a Republican - and that doesn't make him one.

I’m pro-choice. I’m pro-gay rights, Giuliani said. He was then asked whether he supports a ban on what critics call partial-birth abortions. “No, I have not supported that, and I don’t see my position on that changing,” he responded. Source: CNN.com, “Inside Politics” Dec 2, 1999 http://www.ontheissues.org/2008/Rudy_Giuliani_Abortion.htm

ANDERSON COOPER 360 DEGREES (November 14, 2006)

RUDY GIULIANI (R), FORMER MAYOR OF NEW YORK CITY: I'm pro- choice. I'm pro-gay rights.

KING: Giuliani supports a woman's right to an abortion, and back in 1999, he opposed a federal ban on late-term abortions.

GIULIANI: No, I have not supported that, and I don't see my position on that changing.

KING: Immigration could be another presidential landmine. Back in 1996, Mayor Giuliani went to federal court to challenge new federal laws requiring the city to inform the federal government about illegal immigrants.

JEFFREY: He took the side of illegal immigrants in New York City against the Republican Congress.

KING: Giuliani opposes same-sex marriage but as mayor, he supported civil unions and extending health and other benefits to gay couples. He also supported the assault weapons ban and other gun control measures opposed by the National Rifle Association.

GIULIANI: I'm in favor of gun control. I'm pro-choice.

Republican Big-Wigs Support Pro-Abortion Event in NY

Pro-abortion Governor George Pataki and New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who also supports unrestricted abortion, are co-chairs of the 2000 Choice Award Presentation to be held on May 30 at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City. The event is sponsored by the Republican Pro-Choice Coalition, a group that is campaigning for the removal of the pro-life plank from the Republican National Platform.

Rudy Guiliani has marched in lockstep with liberals on affirmative action, gay rights, gay marriage, gun control, school prayer, tuition tax credits, liberal immigration policies, and he's reinforced it, time and time again. Just about everytime Rudy opens his mouth, offensive liberal words come pouring out. As Mayor, Rudy put liberals in high-paid city jobs, an indication what a Rudy WH would look like. Here then is Rudy in his own words:

--The New York State Liberal Party on its endorsement of Rudy Giuliani for Mayor: "When the Liberal Party Policy Committee reviewed a list of key social issues of deep concern to progressive New Yorkers, we found that Rudy Giuliani agreed with the Liberal Party's stance on a majority of such issues.
