NEVER GIVE UP!  NEVER GIVE UP!  NEVER GIVE UP! 
self

Posted on 01/20/2008 7:04:57 PM PST by RebelTex

Don't let Fred quit.  

Fred HAS to win the Republican nomination!!!  Here's why:

  1. Our country has never faced greater peril than now.  Islam seek our destruction and the establishment of a world-wide caliphate.  Illegal aliens have invaded who threaten the rule of law and are continuing to do so.  Socialists are destroying the moral fabric and character of our country by advocating government control over every aspect of our lives.  Communism has resurfaced to threaten  Judeo-Christian values and promote atheism and mediocrity and the undermining of our economy.  We are under unprecedented physical, spiritual, moral, and financial attack by our enemies.
  2. Our country, as leader of the free world and a bastion of freedom, can not long survive if a Democrat or RINO is elected President in this election cycle.
  3. All of the other remaining candidates are RINOs and no Rino can win the general election this time.   Even if a RINO could win, the end results would be the same.
  4. The nomination of a RINO will destroy the Republican party for at least 20 years, if our country manages to survive that long. 
  5. Without a strong and true conservative to lead us, our country will not be able to withstand all the threats we are facing.
I realize that the odds are stacked against winning, but not insurmountable.  The RNC primary rules penalize the early primary states, and Fred has a devoted base in almost all the later primary states as well as most all of the Southern and Midwest states.  The egos of the RINOs will not allow them to drop out, resulting in a fractured and split result for the convention.  None of the delegates will support one of the other RINOs in a brokered convention, but they will support a true conservative. 

Even with limited funds, Fred can still prevail.  And the contributions will greatly increase with a clear and firm statement that he will continue through the convention.  Many of the voters fear wasting their votes and money on someone who will give up before the 'fat lady sings'. 

Give them what they want - a firm commitment - and the votes and money will come in like a tidal wave.   Do not acknowledge any possibility of loss.  Be resolute and absolutely believe that Fred will win, and convey that commitment to the people.   Fred needs to have and make this commitment, and so does his staff.  The MSM has too many times alleged that senior staffers have hinted of his dropping out.

 
NEVER GIVE UP!  NEVER GIVE UP!  NEVER GIVE UP!

If Fred can’t win SC, where can he win?

He didn’t say anything about his plans to go on to Florida.

Expect him to drop out soon.

Fred has a new photo on Fred08.com and paragraphs explaining how he will build up the military. They were put there since yesterday, if I’m not mistaken.

This is a good sign that he plans to fight on.

AMEN BROTHER!!!!! To Hell with these RINO’s

RINO is not such an elegant or precise term. Are there degrees of RINOism? I believe that there are. Fred staying in the race bleeds votes from everyone accept McCain, the worst RINO. His remaining in the race, in my view, is a bad thing. I also believe that Huckabee has no real shot. The candidates who still have a real shot are McCain, Romney & possibly Rudy.

We must decide which among them we will get behind, or just take our marbles, go home and complain. Of the three, I think Romney is the lesser RINO and would be the strongest candidate in the GE.

Fred, use this opportunity to regroup, let Huckabee lose badly in Florida, and then come on great guns for Super Tuesday with a speech that knocks us out and a debate performance that gets you noticed.

If you also happen, in the speech, to use the word “pimps” to describe the media it couldn’t hurt.

As you say, most of the candidates are losers. Fred is the last man standing.

If you look at the results of the last FR poll on the right, you can see that Freepers still overwhelmingly support Fred, although you might not get that impression on some of the threads, since supporters of the other candidates have been very active.

I don’t know what the outcome will be, but with Hunter out there’s no one else who is fit for a conservative to vote for. Let’s pray that this works out for the good of our country.

I was for Thompson, I've given him money, but he's toast, now. And Im not intersted in him flacking for McCain anymore....

I'll support Romney now, and Id have to think about it for the others, except I will never vote for McCain, ever.

So thats it. I hope he bows out and doesent endorse anyone. His chance is over, unfortunately.

It was Thompson that said South Carolina was his “line in the sand.” If he stays in after a dismal third place in a Southern State, and the above statement.....then he is motivated by ego not the best interests of the country.

All Thompson can do is play spoiler and make the fracturing of the GOP a reality. If he gets out now, there may be time to heal the damage done. Maybe, folks like you will get over your mania and eventually come back to reality. However, the longer Thompson drags it out, the more damage he does.

We are in danger, but I'm pretty folks living in 1776-1789, 1812, 1941-1945 and 1945-1991 would disagree.

I agree, Fred needs to soldier on.

Are there anymore debates coming up that’d give him more chances to kick some a$$ like the last debate?

As far as I see it, it isn’t over yet. Mitt has 3 wins, McLame 2, Huck 1, and Rudy will probably take Florida.

His numbers are steady going up while others are going down and the loss of Hunter most likely means he’ll get those votes as well.

Excellent post. I'd like to see a thread/sign up list, for FRedheads (only) to commit to hanging' tough with FRed.

He threw his hat in, at our request. He gave up a lot to serve our Country. He LOVES this Country. He is an outstanding Conservative.

FRED DESERVES OUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!

Get 'er Done, FRed!

Our Country is dead without FRed!

I hear you. However, the problem with that is that McCain is "the front runner." Whereas Huckabee will fame out on super Tuesday anyway.

FRED THOMPSON - NATIONAL SECURITY EXPERIENCE (I’ll protect the American people and American values, whatever it takes to stop the Islamic-Fascists including water-boarding!) - 2ND AMENDMENT ADVOCATE (“Individual” rights to protect their homes and property!)

INCREASE THE MILITARY’S STRENGTH AND SIZE (Diplomacy through Strength and verification!)

SECURE AND SEAL THE BORDERS (Don’t give sanctuary anywhere to illegal’s; don’t employ illegal’s; don’t rent to illegal’s; don’t extend credit to illegal’s; don’t give illegal’s rights they have no right to; report all crimes committed by illegal’s to ICE and immediately deport those illegal’s who have already committed crimes against America!) LAW AND ORDER (Enforcement of our current laws regarding illegal immigration!) – DENY FEDERAL DOLLARS TO SANCTUARY CITIES (Enough is enough!)

CONSERVATIVE JUSTICES FOR SUPREMES (Great progress has been made on the Supreme Court in Bush’s term. FRED was asked by President Bush to spirit Justice Roberts through the confirmation process. The next President will probably have the opportunity to seat two additional Justices. This is huge folks. FRED will nominate Justices who will interpret the Constitution, not create rights that simply do not exist and legislate from the bench!) – PRO-LIFE ADVOCATE (will strive to nominate superior Justices with the eventual goal of overturning Roe vs Wade)

THOMPSON PLAN TO REDUCE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SPENDING (Check out his detailed plan to reduce Federal spending!)

SOCIAL SECURITY REFORMER (Social Security is an entitlement program that will soon overtake the budget. The program can’t sustain itself and will bankrupt future generations; FRED has detailed proposals to save Social Security and provide the added benefit of private savings accounts for younger workers!)

DEFEAT ANY DEMOCRAT OR RINO (Close your eyes and imagine the first debate between FRED THOMPSON and ANY liberal DemocRAT they put up?)

TAX SIMPLIFICATION (Reform and perhaps eliminate the IRS with a variety of choice for the tax payer!)

EDUCATION (Return education to the States. It is that simple. The NEA is the greatest enemy of our educational system!)

WON’T PUT UP WITH TRUTH MANIPULATION FROM THE DB-MSM (including stupid questions by liberal moderators, and “purchased” political pundits)

FRED THOMPSON IS THE “WE THE PEOPLE” CANDIDATE (We the People asked him to set aside his personal life and step up one more time for his Country…and he stepped up!)

THIRD IN IOWA, SECOND IN WYOMING (MSM still calling it a tie with McCain’s name in the lead…FoxNews won’t even mention his name if they can find a way to avoid it!)

WINNER OF SOUTH CAROLINA JANUARY 10, 2008 DEBATE – HANDS DOWN!!! (In lieu of the airtime FoxNews chose to give him…or not give him as the case may be. WE THE PEOPLE notice garbage like that!)

IT’S TOO LATE FOR SOUTH CAROLINA, BUT IT’S NOT TOO LATE FOR FLORIDA! IT IS TIME FOR REAGAN CONSERVATIVES TO COME OUT OF THE WALLS AND WOODWORK AND UNITE NOW BEHIND THE ONLY TRUE STANDARD BEARER FOR REAGAN CONSERVATISM! A CONSERVATIVE THOMPSON REVOLUTION! PLEASE STOP BY FRED08.COM AND STUDY HIS WHITE PAPERS ON ALL THE MAJOR ISSUES!

DO YOU REALLY WANT McCAIN OR HUCKABEE OR ROMNEY? ARE YOU WILLING TO SETTLE WHEN ONLY A HANDFULL OF STATES HAVE VOICED THEIR CHOICE? IT’S NOT OVER! FRED WILL NOT GIVE UP ON HIS COUNTRY THAT EASY. RUSH WILL HELP NOW…WATCH! MARK LEVIN…GREAT READ!

Are there degrees of RINOism? I believe that there are.

You posted eloquently but I have to sincerely disagree with your premise. If you don't vote for who you think is best qualified, you will never get the person you want. Treating an election like a football game is not the right way to vote, and way to complicated what with all the permutations. Keep it simple, vote for who you think is best qualified, not the one you think will will or the one that might draw votes from an apponent.

What you say it true, but not as ole' Paul says, 'The rest of the story.'

Eh, I don’t think McCain is the front-runner. Romney leads in delegates and he’s the only one of the two with the money and organization to compete across the board on Feb. 5. McCain had to pour everything into South Carolina and only eked out a with because Thompson was able to convince enough evangelicals the Bible doesn’t command stoning for those who vote for anyone but Huckabee.
