Exactly, not under my support (I’ll vote Constitutionalist first)!
Should we award points to a chameleon simply because he changes colors to mask what he really is?
He's not a convert to anything. He will say whatever it takes to get elected. He has no political compass. He is driven only by ambition.
Romney gets a 0 on everything.
Did you see my matrix the other day?
Just 2 points when ni am not american but an european(french) “conservative”.
1/Illegal alliens FROM CUBA and NICARAGUA in 1997 were not the same illegal aliens you have today...Seems that Fred was right on that point
2/About the right for abortion.As christian myself(catholic education)i don’t think one can completly ban abortion shamefully.The first big job would be on education and the fight against moral relativism...
So much for that Log Cabin endorsement.
There are no such things as "narrow minded" conservatives (fake ones) and "sensible intelligent" conservatives (the true one). There are only conservatives, semi-conservatives, non-conservatives.
I assume by your term "sensible intelligent conservatives" you would lump yourself in that category - no comment.
There are may others that are attempting to hijack the term "conservative" and as in pc America, that is done everywhere.
The so-called "sensible intelligent" conservatives are also called "pragmatic" and mean "since we can't get the votes on conservative ideas, let's split the difference with liberals.
That, my friend is NOT conservative, that is cowardice in the face of the enemy -- and liberalism is the enemy, make no mistake here.
Liberals are out to destroy the U.S., one election at a time!
Out of the bunch, Thompson's record is NOT conservative but does come much closer than the ones on stage last night and Sunday night, since Duncan Hunter was disallowed (why should any candidate be silenced - unless the media doesn't want the American electorate to learn of them and their ideas.
Thompson's own record in the U.S. Senate was NOT conservative but was MORE conservative than John McCain, who is a pro-life, pro-military (sometimes) LIBERAL!
You may speek of "sensible" and "intelligent" as others speak of "pragmatic" but these are code words for giving liberals half of what they want. They love it because today it's half, tomorrow the other half or at least one-third, and before long - it's the whole thing.
Why do you think that they have small splinter groups called "Baby Steps?" Those groups work to attain liberalism one bite at a time.
Sorry to completely disagree with you here in this friendly forum.
It would appear that you have chosen your candidate and regardless of the facts, prefer to call him a "conservative" - more conservative than others in front of the cameras, yes but has voted with liberals on McCain Feingold and not toally against illegal alien hires by corporationos.
You can be born in another country and still an American citizen if both parents are American citizens. As in the case of Army brats, for example.
Delusions strike deep.
His parents were not US Citizens. His grandparents had emigrated to Mexico due to polygamy issues .
Correction: His parents were not US Citizens. His GREATgrandparents had emigrated to Mexico due to polygamy issues .
Gays serve in the military. I hope that doesn’t make your head explode. The official policy of the military, which is supported by conservative stalwarts such as Duncan Hunter, is that gays can serve in the military so long as they keep quiet about it.
I agree with you. That’s why I sent Fred some money yesterday.
There is no “boy scout” thing, except that Mitt Romney actively supports the Boy Scouts, and even volunteered as an executive leader on the national board.
The Mormon church is very positively involved and supportive of Boy Scouts, with people like J.W. Marriot providing a lot of money and other support.
Mitt even in 1994 was fully supportive of the Boy scouts being allowed to make their own rules without government interference.
Thanks. That’s the link that shows Romney supporting the Boy Scout’s right to exclude gays from leadership.
And which never mentions scoutmasters.
I'd be happier w/Thompson than the rest of that bunch of "moderate/liberals" but he'd not be a candidate for whom I'd gladly donate lots of money to nor go door to door to get elected, but who knows, I may fool myself and at least walk door to door for Pubbies again.
