Posted on 08/30/2007 7:51:17 AM PDT by rface
Let's cut to the chase: conservative Republicans have only one choice for President in 2008: Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. Unlike the GOP frontrunners, Paul is the real deal.
No real conservative could support Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Fred Thompson, or Newt Gingrich. When it comes to historic conservative principles, each of these men is as phony as a three dollar bill. That they are now attempting to cast themselves as conservatives is more than laughable: it is downright hilarious.

If one wants a true photograph of how a congressman or senator votes on conservative, constitutional issues, the best place to look is the Freedom Index in the New American Magazine. Ron Paul almost always ranks as the most conservative congressman from either chamber or either party. His current ranking is 100%, which is a score that few congressmen or senators, except Ron Paul, ever achieve. And Paul does it routinely.
See the Freedom Index here: http://www.jbs.org/files/fi-110-1.pdf

Ron Paul said these words, "I have never been one who is comfortable talking about my faith in the political arena. In fact, the pandering that typically occurs in the election season I find to be distasteful. But for those who have asked, I freely confess that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, and that I seek His guidance in all that I do. I know, as you do, that our freedoms come not from man, but from God. My record of public service reflects my reverence for the Natural Rights with which we have been endowed by a loving Creator."
Could conservative Christians ask for a testimony that is any clearer?
Should Ron Paul win the Republican nomination, he would almost certainly win the general election. His constitutional, common-sense ideals would be attractive to such a broad range of voters, I dare say that he would win a landslide victory, no matter who the Democrats nominated. Conservatives, independents, libertarians, union members, and even some liberals (mostly those who oppose the war in Iraq and Bush's Big Brother schemes) would support Ron Paul. The challenge is winning the Republican nomination.
Conservative Republicans have only one choice for President in 2008: Ron Paul.
We don't need some empty suit!!! (Fred Thompson)
We don't need a Baby Killer! (Rudy Giuliani)
We don't need some cult religious kook! (you-know-who!)
We need a Tall, Strong, Handsome, Muscle Bound Texan to Kick Hillary's Ass!
If we don't get Ron Paul to represent the Conservatives in the White House - then it might as well be Hillary!
Yep - he's really doin' well in the polls.
Sounds like you have a man-crush on Mr. Paul!! Seriously though, I heard most of his interview on Medved on Monday and Ronnie-boy didn’t acquit himself very well on either domestic or foreign policy. We’re much better with Duncan Hunter.
It appears that REVEREND Chuck Baldwin of the Crossroads Baptist Church is doing exactly what true conservatives deplore in the ‘Rats, using black churches to promote their political agenda.
In truth, the FEC ought to be taking a good hard look at Reverend Baldwin.
LOL! The author has a bad case of hyperbolic rodomontade. This is not conducive to the reader’s forming a good impression of the candidate.
Ol’ Duncan Hunter is cleaning up at the end of the Elephant Parade.
Fred Thompson will be the Republican nominee.
I'm for either Hunter or Tancredo....
He's not even trying....I don't think he wants it. As far as I can see - he's just an empty suit.
R. Paul beats both of them in poll data.
LOL! You’ve got all the typical criticisms covered there. :)
No real conservative could support ......blah blah blah
What an incredibly pompous statement.
Paul is uncomfortable talking about his faith - Why? Is he embarrassed?
As a “real” conservative shouldn’t Paul know whether homosexuality is a sin or not?
As a real conservative shouldn’t he stop blaming the US for islamic fascism?
There will be more posts from others of FR I am sure......
But the arrogance of this article makes me want to hurl.
Yeah, almost as good as your boy, right?
BTW that’s REAL polls....
So RP is pushing the trash can then...
And if so, let it be!... But social conservatives MUST NOT SELL OUT their principles! :)
There... you'll enjoy that comment :)
