Unlike Romney's "National Council for a New America," Free Republic is a conservative site!

Mormons are socially conservative and pro-family by religious upbringing. Most Blacks are too!

That’s why many Blacks vote for initiatives in California that would ban “gay” marriage.

Many good Blacks voted for Obama because he was Black. Many good Mormons support Romney because he is Mormon.

But Obama is not good for Blacks any more than Romney would be good for Mormons. The policies both men have pursued or that they have signed into law are poison to families, and socially deconstructionist.

Hunter is consistent and does not waver. I can’t think of even one issue he’s shifted on. Can’t say the same about Romney, Giuliani, McCain, etc.

Duncan Hunter is done. He's not running for President in 2012 and would be a fool if he tried. Jack Kemp would have better chance of winning.

FR is not for everyone!

I agree. You and I do not see eye to eye about what makes someone a conservative, but this is your site. I am a guest at your site. I supported Mitt Romney in the primary and I still think he is a better advocate of conservative principles than many of the people who post here. I think the tone some on FreeRepublic.com have taken when it comes to Mitt Romney is offensive. Yes, I am a guest here but it is a shame guests have been treated so rudely. Some of the rude behavior reflects very poorly on the site. Name calling never seems the most effective way to win a debate.

Re: Free Republic is a conservative site

Gadzooks... Photobucket It certainly is a mystery, Jim, how anyone can not understand FR is a conservative site.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist... or an all knowing, always right thinking, devilish handsome robot to see the truth!

Bender! Stop calling me "Shirley!" Or I will... Photobucket shoot your washers clean off this conservative site!

Yes, on this conservative site... Photobucket Mitt's dead, Jim!

So that's that, you conservative campers. Smoke 'em... Photobucket if you got 'em.

So party on, you right-wing fanatics... Photobucket the beer's on me. But find your own babebot. This one's mine!

Always tell the truth and only the truth... Photobucket in bars.

And what ever you do, always practice... Photobucket safe sex!

Regarding tossing RINOs, that's something the Republicans need to do. As far as tossing the fringe people you've just named, they aren't really Republican affiliates but if they want to vote that way (and can bring friends along), then they should ~ or just stay home.

The deal is the electorate is made up of a bi-modal saddle (if you take every idealogy into account and spread them out). It's not a left/right thing.

For the most part you have Republicans and you have Democrats. Never mind the Leftwingtards arguing that Republicans are disappearing ~ they aren't, they're just not talking to the Leftwingtards anymore.

The reason we have mostly Republicans or Democrats is we have single-member districts at the state level. The math forces all candidates to "embrace" something so they do. That's where we get RINOs from ~ where there are too many Democrats, and not enough Republicans to provide something to "embrace" that's consistent with the national Republican party ~ in short, RINOs occur where that other node in the bi-modal saddle is MISSING ~ and unfortunately it's always been MISSING in some places, e.g. New York, Boston and its suburbs, Philadelphia and its suburbs, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago and so on.

It ain't comin' back in the places where it's always been missing.

Well, anyway, the long and the short of it is to win where there's a bi-modal saddle you have to attract folks from the other node. At the same time there's always a fringe of people who can't quite get their act together and think the math of the single-member district can be defeated, and they're out there. Sometimes they think of themselves as Independents ~ but they're not. They are simply outlyers or fringe people. Fortunately they never constitute as much as 20% of the electorate. Unfortunately the other node, for us the Democrats, have sufficient numbers to beat us even if we get all the fringe people and they get some of ours. Vice Versa is true as well.

So, how do you win over Democrats to vote for Conservative candidates? That's the question to ponder. Winning over the fringe (so-called independents) is not all that hard, but winning over Democrats to vote for Conservatives is the issue.

Undoubtedly charismatic candidates will help. Lots of campaign dollars will help. Most of all we have to show that our non-Democrat candidates CAN lead.

Always remember, though, Democrats are like dogs. Unless you convert them they will return to their vomit. We are at such a time in our history. Someone forgot to tame the new Catholic Democrats and convert them into Real Catholic Republicans. There's a counterpart problem in Mormon territory as well ~ the Mormon Democrat. They've got enough of them around to ruin the chance of a real Conservative to win. Someone has to go after those people and convert them ~ it wasn't just enough to turn 'em into Mormons (SEE: Mormon, Baptist, War in the Intermountain) ~ they had to be brought over all the way.

We also forgot to convert the Coal Country Democrats back into Republicans ~ they're still Conservative enough, but we lost them several decades back. They're worth some work.

Worst of all we lost the North East ~ we gave up the Republican party to the RINOs ~ and there went all the other offices. No RINO ever supports the ticket. That's gotta' change, and that's why I think the RINO brand has to be driven from the Republican party and denied access to Conservative votes.

I do not believe I have proposed anything that is contrary to what has been considered Republican principle. It is at the same time the very basis of conservatism. It is time to reassert that principle and raise it to full view. And if there are those who cannot subscribe to these principles, then let them go their way.

The libs, in and out of the party, keep trying to convince us otherwise.

Personally, my favorite nickname for him is Grahamnesty, if that’s any indication of my dislike for him. Not sure given his past actions if he’s “redeemable” at all. And, that’s no matter how much blood, sweat, and/or tears he put into Clinton’s impeachment... After all, like it or not, Clinton’s impeachment was a “star-maker”(no pun intended) type partisan political action (even if it had merit, and was warranted action). Many politicians will use a “crisis” like an impeachment to get air-time, etc... (Sound familiar? LOL)

We heard all the excuses for not voting for Hunter.

He doesn’t have name recognition. Neither did Palin 3 months prior to the election.

He isn’t “charismatic” enough. And John McCain was?

He isn’t an “attractive” choice. Uh, John McCain?

Representatives can’t win. Not with self fullfilling prophesies.

The man would have driven Zero into the ground in a straight debate. When others were whining about the ringers being sent to the CNN debate to ask questions, Hunter sent a letter to Hillary Clinton daring her to send more. Hunter didn’t beat around the bush when he called Harry Reid a treasonous coward and it left Reid speechless for once. Hunter certainly wouldn’t have run out to spray paint his name across the wildly unpopular bank bailout. Where other republicans live in fear of the media, Hunter walks up the steps and bangs on the door.

He was the true Reaganite candidate and the only one not claiming the mantel.

Huckabee is a social conservative and fiscal leftist. The last thing we need is someone on video as Governor, begging the legislature to raise taxes.

Impressive shilling here, by the way:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2243100/posts?page=13#13

Unfortunately, the whole straw man argument that anyone who dislikes Myth Romney is a Huckabee supporter also is a common tactic of the shills and it’s a pretty vapid one, so you lose points with that.

For a minute there, I thought Mitt might have been offering more money to his FR boosters in order to get better ones.

You know, I really want to think that most people here actually have the ability to think beyond the level of a 6 year old. Now, please tell us, when did Palin vote for Romney? Did she reside in Massachusetts when he ran for governor there? Did she vote for him in a Republican presidential primary? Nah, that can't be it either. So you tell us, when did she 'vote for Romney'?

I like to believe that we are a center-right nation but as I tell my kids at the end of the game. “I don’t care about who shoulda, woulda, coulda won. Look at the scroreboard.”

Well look at the scoreboard.

I to voted to McCain, but that was because he was running with Palin.

We need a conservative to lead the GOP or to hell with the GOP. I can’t take another McCain.
