Maybe a 3rd-party “draft Alan Keyes” movement. :-)

We will continue to advocate for life, family, liberty, national security, individual freedom, limited government, low taxes, originalist judges and the constitution, etc, regardless of who wins the current election.

Oddly, that is exactly what I am advocating for in this election. And I am supporting a candidate who supports the right to life, opposes abortion, backs strong families, school choice, marriage between one man and one woman, liberty, the 2nd amendment as defender of that liberty, limited government, the Bush tax cuts, reigning in government spending, free trade, originalist judges, repeal of McCain Feingold, opposition to the Kilo ruling, strong national defense, increasing our military force, fighting radical islamists, winning the war in Iraq. If I didn't conclude by saying I support Mitt Romney, we would be in perfect agreement I believe on those principles I am pushing above. And It is clear that those are the exact things Romney is advocating for and running for office to implement. He COULD be lying, but I don't think so. But he is RUNNING on a strong conservative platform, and stands on the RIGHT side of the list you posted. His biggest weakness in his platform is his willingness to sign a limited AWB. But that is countered by a much stronger stand than the other conservative on the 1st amendment, specifically promising to work to repeal CFR. No candidate is perfect, but on the issues the candidates are espousing, Romney is solidly in the conservative camp. The reason he is opposed is matters of opinion on trust, not his platform. I understand that, and that is why I don't push to change minds here. I simply post the facts about his actual record and his positions, because I see people who have their marching orders and think that includes misleading to acheive their goals.

The author is at this link post 263, I’m not much interested in your musings and it makes more sense to speak to the guy who just said it on FR tonight.

You said you agreed with it, and I’m responding to your post. As I did not address his OPINION about that, only MY opinion about what you wrote, I have pinged the appropriate people and answered to the appropriate post.

If you want to address another freeper in a reply to me, it is customary for you to ping that freeper.

In case you didn’t notice, I give religion forums and discussions a WIDE BERTH on FR, as I see this as a conservative political forum, not a religious debating society.

I’m not objecting to others who wish to engage in that type of activity, it’s fine with me, it’s just not something I’m interested in. So I don’t read or post to them.

FR is a valuable resource for the conservative community, and I am doing my part to provide conservative opinions and facts supporting conservatives for this community.

Thank you, JR’s statement makes me feel good about the future.

It's very scary when Republicans start parsing a word in order to gain points, like the little dance Romney and McCain are doing with 'Amnesty". That's what Democrats are supposed to do.

Integrity does not require parsing.

Illegal immigrants wouldn't have received a blanket pardon under McCain's bill. Instead, they would have had to pay thousands in penalties and fees to gain legal status.

More Newsweak propoganda. You've got to wonder when they come to the defense of McCain. Mitt is certainly not as good as Duncan Hunter or Fred Thompson on this issue, but at least he gets popular demands for border enforcement first.

If we are in the business of selling American citizenship for token fines, then at least we could sell it to people from Asia willing to pay more. < / sarcasm >

No man, we can’t go for Keyes, he supported paying Slavery reparations when he was running for the senate. I can never forgive him for that...

I agree - I do not trust anyone who is willing to work with Ted Kennedy on anything.

And .. let us never forget that McCain considered being John [I was in Vietnam] Kerry’s running mate. What does that say about McCain’s character ..? To think that McCain would take sides with such a traitor to our military, is mind boggling..

McCain is a snake in the grass .. and when he was campaigning in 2000 - HIS WIFE WAS WEARING A “HILLARY” PIN. What does that say about McCain’s relationships with democrats.

At this point, I like Fred the best but am not sure he’ll still be around by the time my state primary rolls around (mid Feb).

Of the top five, I like Huck the least.

I agree on Huckabee. I started out anyone but Giuliani, but I think Huckabee is an even worse choice now.

By the way, what is this bogus “factcheck.org”? Is that a McCain outfit?

I think this is a project of the Annenberg Center at the University of Pennsylvania. Something to do with the Journalism School.

Has been around for a couple election cycles. Claims to be nonpartisan and totally objective. I would not give it that much. It does tilt left but not nearly as much as the MSM and not all of the time. It will sometimes slam RATS.

Of the two evils, it is pretty clear that only McCain has a prayer of defeating Hillary.

Are you on LSD?

LOL. I'm strictly numbers-driven. The head-to-head test match-ups speak for themselves. I have seen state poll after state poll where GOP candidates are in the 40 percent range against Hillary or other RAT candidate but Mitt is only in the high 30s. He is the lowest vote getter in these tests.

I have great regard for his business acumen but facts are facts.

Actualy I like Duncan Hunter the best but was only picking from those considered viable. I’m not able to kid myself into believing he has a snowball’s chance. But if we could just hold the WH he could be Sec Def.

And polls are far from "facts".

Mitt's an untrustworthy weasel, that's for sure, but no way does America elect Hillary Clinton as President and Commander-in-Chief. The mindless chattering class in this country is capable of electing some real garbage, but electing Hillary as President is simply beyond the pale and not a realistic possibility.

FRegards,
LH
