Skip to comments.Beware of liberals supporting Republicans
Posted on 10/25/2009 4:16:09 AM PDT by Scanian
One of the best ways to determine someone's true political philosophy is to observe the people who support him/her. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison is planning to run against Governor Rick Perry in the Texas Republican Primary next March, putting the state GOP in a tough spot. They are being forced to take sides against two leaders of the party, each of whom claims to be the more conservative.
As I outlined in a previous column, Hutchison is pro-choice (not a conservative position), while Perry is pro-life (a strong conservative position). Hence, although the Senator claims to be a staunch Republican, on this issue she is more aligned with the Democratic Party.

Kay fits the MAC profile of rino.
KBH has always claimed to be a staunch GOP party member. Her voting record in the Senate shows clearly that she is not a Conservative. ....She has done nothing to support border control or the apprehension of illegal aliens. She supports abortion. Etc., etc., etc. She’s a lying RINO that has been in D.C. for too long and we certainly don’t need her to replace Perry as Gov. of Texas! She would essentially be another Ann Richardson, who licked LBJ’s boots.
We had better get off this “pro-choice” vs “non pro-choice” criteria in determining who is really a conservative and who is not. Our most important factor in choosing a conservative is their philosophy and “track record” in protecting our freedoms and support of the Constitution as originally written.
Time and time again, I watch the “choice” issue flaunted against true conservatives and patriots who don’t actively espouse the choice issue and are eventually “thrown out with the bath water.”
Freedom has to (and should be) our first priority. Once we regain our freedoms (if that’s possible) we can address the choice issue. Unless we get off this requirement to quell free choice we will never get the freedom to later address it and make the changes desired.
Now, in the case of KBH, she is part of the old “go along to get along” crowd in Washington. She has been tainted by the opulence of big government and is simply taking an ego trip to enhance her narcissistic view of herself. Once they go to Washington, they are bad seed.
Support conservatives. Not Republicans.
Excellent post, DH.
KBH might be a loser, but that doesn’t mean Perry isn’t a tard.
How stupid can you be to upended the investigation looking back at the forensics of the Willingham case by replacing four members on the Texas Forensic Science Commission in the middle of the investigation.
Then cry “waaaa, this is all political, waaaa”.
I wish we had a third choice.
It is NOT pro-choice vs non pro-choice, but rather, pro-murder vs non pro-murder.
On November 12 the reconstituted jury convicted Scott Peterson of first-degree murder with special circumstances for killing Laci and second-degree murder for killing the unborn baby she carried.
What part of this living, breathing human being do you not understand?
Also, for someone with a sign up date of 1997, you should know:
As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc.
She’s pro-choice and that makes her a Dim?
Just for that one position? I thought conservatism encompassed more than that.
And beware of Pubbies supporting libs....
We need a second one...
KBH is a RINOCRAT! She needs to be sent home and shouldn’t even have been sent to DC as a conservative.
I suspect she’s being backed by some liberal money to weaken the conservative base in Texas. This is not the time for a rhinocrat to be sitting in our Governor’s seat. We need somebody strong in the event that we have to lead a 10th Amendment or Secessionist movement to push the Feds back to DC. KBH just isn’t the one to do that.
Besides that, she should’ve been stripped of elected office years ago when she used her public office to run her campaign and broke the law! Maybe we need to get Ronnie Earle out and dust him off to talk about the evidence he found against her. She can’t even make up her mind about running for the office. We don’t need a waffler in the Texas Mansion.
Any politician or individual who will compromise on the protection of the unalienable right to life will compromise on anything at all. Constantly.
Hence my tagline.
If you're pro-baby-killing you're no conservative.
Like Newt on Fox and Friends just now.
Boy, he sure is ticked off that his butt is getting kicked. He made it quite clear (not by name) that Conservatives are stupid.
Stupid is as RINOs do, Newt....
(Heee hee heeee!)
I am for pro-life. However, sometimes you have to go through the back door to get in the house.
Making the choice issue the single and most important criteria in selecting your candidate will blind you since you can’t see the forest because trees are in the way.
The last two generations have an entirely different look at life and they certainly are not the ones we older people see. They are the “if it feels good...do it” crowd and with age and the experiences gained therein, will eventually come around to the same philosophy we have.
But...if we can’t overthrow the Marxists in power, we (and they) will never have that chance.
What I am saying is get in the door first and then do something about the right to life. It’s kind of like trying to fight a battle in Asia when you have no ships or planes. You simply have no way to get there.
See post #16
Liberals are all about compromise.
Compromise is an incremental win.
The will accept a compromise now, knowing that they will just keep after the real goal until they get it.
In the mean time, Conservatives Republicans are all morphing into RINOs.
What we really want is Libertarian Republicans who are focused on small government, smaller taxes, adherence to the principles of our Constitution and the elimination or revoking of the countless petty laws, taxes and bureaucratic institutions that Liberals have encumbered us with over the years.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men..."
People who think like you will absolutely guarantee the collapse of our free society.
Blindly believing that sometimes retreat is NOT necessary to win the war is a bad thing and cannot even be contemplated will insure total defeat.
Over the past 40 years things have certainly changed for the worst. Religion is one of them.
We now have religions embracing gay rights, the dark arts, Islam, and a whole host of other beliefs to numerous to delineate. Each religion believing that their way is the only way.
With each day that passes, the old time religions that America was founded upon sinks in the mire of the multitude of these other religions...and along with that, the voting power and numbers of those who remain.
Whether we like it or not, free choice will prevail simply due to the fact that life is not deemed sacred any longer and the responsibility of having and raising children is looked upon as old fashioned. Let the state (day care) raise them with government money or simply get rid of the little problem. That’s society today and it will not change. Face it...we have lost that battle.
Religious conservatism has been decimated by our public indoctrination centers (schools), colleges, MSM, the current government and the absolute lack of responsibility instilled in today’s society by the system(the blameless society).
We are in a growing minority and as I said before, as our numbers dwindle, our voting power vaporizes. Continuing to use the precursor of “right to life” as the ONLY criterion that a conservative candidate is qualified for office is foolish and accomplishes nothing.
