Amodei announces for U.S. Senate (Reid challenger)
Las Vegas City Life Blogs ^ | Sep. 9, 2009 | Steve Sebelius

Posted on 09/09/2009 4:23:50 PM PDT by fretzer

Republican State Sen. Mark Amodei kicked off his campaign for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Harry Reid today, telling reporters that he’ll run a positive campaign in the crowded primary, but that plenty of people in Nevada want to get rid of the incumbent.

“When you look at where Nevada is right now, I think we’re at a financial crossroads. We do not need the status quo,” said Amodei, who is from Carson City. “The focus really needs to be on Nevada right now.”

Pretty good I think. People are fed up. But Reid has a way of surviving and should never be counted out.

He’s still in the hunt. The primary will be interesting.

Who cares if Amodei is a (R)! What Nevadians ought to make sure of is before they vote is Amodei a Conservative?

A moderate or rino will be useless to us all!

That’s yet to be seen. Amodei has voted for tax increases. Lowden hasn’t done much for the Republican cause in NV. Tarkanian has lost elections.

Look, if you don't get it by now, you never will! Defeating Reid is not the goal, it's an objective. Go ahead, try to defeat Reid with a rino what will you acheive other than the same or more destruction of a conservative agenda? That John McCain thing really worked out well didn't it?

Chest pumping conservative making absolutely no apologies to you luke warm lilly supporters who are so ignorantly clueless, or just plain spiteful because someone has an (R) by their name.

In this race, it’s the goal. No other outcome is possible. Reid is vulnerable and must be defeated. Let’s hope for a lively GOP primary, but I expect you to support whomever the GOP challenger is. I don’t want to see the typical chest-pounding and personal smearing of the perceived “RINO” boogiemen by the CINOs.

Oh, I get it.

Let me make this cystal clear. I, and I hope millions like me, will ever only support a valid conservative canidate. You make the case that we should keep doing the "typical" repub thing which has been going on for a decade and giving us not just political loses, but culture degradation.

Perceived rino? Here's my perception - Any canadite with an (R) by their name who shows tendencies to side with dems, be totally disloyal to the party, undermind the party agenda, is moderate, is NOT a conservative, or hold conservative values. Anyone who would raise taxes, Proabortion, progay agenda, Amnesty inclined, sucks up to the MSM for 15 minutes, talks about bipartisanship like it's a badge, doesn't fight liberals to the hilt, thinks Obama's ideas are just as valid as consevatives ideas, shys away from the truth, worried about getting reelected instead of doing the right thing, etc...

Is that clear enough for you? Please understand this, we are in a war, not for political purposes, but to bring back our mannered, respectful, standard culture. America is dying because the liberals and moderate/rino's are removing the "CREATOR" out of the idea!

Removing Reid and replacing him with any ole republican is foolishiness, and shows some republicans still have a typical ignorance of what is important. Get with the program! NO MORE RINO'S!

You are, of course, correct,.

It’s RINO’s like him who think that the Republican party should compromise that got us in the trouble we are in.

Buck is revealing his liberal bent by the day.

A wolf in sheep’s clothing.

To sirchtruth: although we have disagreed on this thread, I would like to apologize for “metmom” who has stalked me from another thread and has now sullied this one.

Your laying the blame for abortions in this country at the feet of sirchtruth simply because he refuses to compromise his conservative values and think like you is reprehensible.

Don’t bother apologizing for me. You don’t speak for me and I am more than capable of doing it for myself if the need arises.

I didn’t sully the thread, I arrived after you did it.

You stalked me, and that’s against the rules of this board. Yes, you sullied it by stalking. But I won’t report you, because you continue to entertain me.

Regarding the issue relevant to this thread, cultmom, holding out for ideological conservative perfection can fail. It gave us BHO. Those who contributed to that are responsible for, among other things, the incremental number of dead babies that the BHO administration will cause.

However, I would not expect a phony Christian moonie like you to understand that.

Now post a response that will entertain me! I demand it of you!

This is a public forum, which is open to people posting on any thread they choose, unless specifically prohibited by the mods, like some people who have been banned from the religion forum.

I posted nothing that wasn't relevant to the thread, thus your accusation of stalking has no merit.

Why should politics be separate from religion?

Conservative values = Christian values. Christian values define the conservative position.

They are pro-life and pro-marriage.

They are the same ones that the Founding Fathers believed in which were likewise based on Biblical principles, that gave us our inalienable rights and limited government. They are pro-freedom and anti-big government.

Asking whether someone who’s a Christian can support rewarding the illegals who have broken the law, thereby encouraging more lawbreaking.

People compromising their values and electing RINO’s into office is what gave us those 1,000,000 abortions. It’s not an either/or situation.

Therefore, it is intellectually dishonest to claim that sirchtruth, who is clearly a staunch conservative, is responsible for the abortions under this administration because he wouldn’t compromise his values.

Blaming conservatives for this administration and abortions under it, is a liberal smear tactic intended to drive people away from what remains of the conservative element in the Republican Party.
