Skip to comments.Will FR embrace socialism to make way for Rudy Giuliani as a Republican presidential candidate?

We've got some real challenges facing us. FR was established to fight against government corruption, overstepping, and abuse and to fight for a return to the limited constitutional government as envisioned and set forth by our founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and other founding documents.
One of the biggest cases of government corruption, overstepping and abuse that I know of is its disgraceful headlong slide into a socialist hell. Our founders never intended for abortion to be the law of the land. And they never intended the Supreme Court to be a legislative body. They never intended God or religion to be written out of public life. They never intended government to be used to deny God's existence or for government to be used to force sexual perversions onto our society or into our children's education curriculum. They never intend for government to disarm the people. They never intended for government to set up sanctuary cities for illegals. They never intended government to rule over the people and or to take their earnings or private property or to deprive them of their constitutional rights to free speech, free religion, private property, due process, etc. They never intended government to seize the private property of private citizens through draconian asset forfeiture laws or laws allowing government to take private property from lawful owners to give to developers. Or to seize wealth and redistribute it to others. Or to provide government forced health insurance or government forced retirement systems.
All of the above are examples of ever expanding socialism and tyranny brought to us by liberals/liberalism.
FR fights against the liberals/Democrats in all of these areas and always will. Now if liberalism infiltrates into the Republican party and Republicans start promoting all this socialist garbage, do you think that I or FR will suddenly stop fighting against it? Do you think I'm going to bow down and accept abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, global warming, illegal alien lawbreakers, gun control, asset forfeiture, socialism, tyranny, totalitarianism, etc, etc, etc, just so some fancy New York liberal lawyer can become president from the Republican party?
Do you really expect me to do that?
Whoever we put on the ‘08 ticket, we can’t allow it to be Rudy.
Gigantic bump and thank you!
If the GOP runs Rudy, then conservatives should RUN from the GOP. I’ve never been an advocate of independant candidates but this time might be the first.
I miss George Allen.
After a few guidance seminars you will see the light.
I hope not. But thankfully that's a choice we won't need to make; Rudy's already hit his high water mark. It's all downhill from here.
I am a Republican only insofar as they are conservatives, and not when they are not.
If the GOP nominates a pro-abortion gungrabbing liberal, they forfeit my vote, and that result is not my fault, but theirs.
I’ve never voted for a gungrabbing pro-abortion liberal, and I’m not about to start now.
My favorite Rudy posts are the “we are the Borg” ones. Resistance is futile! You will be absorbed!
Will FR embrace Hillary instead, removing any chance of getting another conservative on the court?
Does this place have a front door?
Thank you JimRob....This needs to be addressed, and there’s no one more qualified to start the debate than you.
I’m for Fred, Jim! Voted.
I know you won't. Nor will this conservative.
Thanks, Jim, for all you do for the conservative cause!
If the Republican primary voters choose Giuliani, I will vote for him, as his presumptive opponent is Hillary.
I’m unaffiliated, so I will not be one of those voters. But I would vote for a trained chimpanzee if it meant keeping Hillary out of the White House.
And for what it’s worth, I do not believe Giuliani is a socialist. Say what you will about the guy’s position on social issues, but he has a record of success as NY Mayor that is pretty darned impressive.
"Come, have some cocoa and cookies. It's nice in here."
Allow me to speak as a young guy here Jim...it was the Ronaldus Magnus after all who said that “freedom is never more than a generation away from becoming extinct”. Now, keep in mind that I’m fully aware of the fact that the MSM will attack and lambaste any GOP candidate that comes across the plate...
...but why Rudy? Maybe I’m holding out for Fred Thompson, but the electorate will rue the day that we’re expected to choose between Rudy and Hillary.
Decididng who looks better in a slip does not a presidential race make.
The first priority for any conservative must be to stop the hijacking of the Republican party by Ghouliani and leftist elements within the GOP that want to turn it into a Democratic-lite party. If we lose that battle, the general election in 2008 will be meaningless and it will be eight years before a conservative could reach the White House.
