Well done, Rick Santorum!! A great come from behind surge and photo finish!! Had it in the bag until the last minute recount of one precinct (and surprise, surprise) just enough Romney votes were found to knock you out of first place by a whopping 8 votes. But a great victory for the base nonetheless!!
And it looks like there may be a few fewer faces in the race for New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida. Can't see Huntsman or Bachmann hanging around much longer, and Perry may also bail. Ron Paul has had his best shot. His spam monkeys will have no further impact on the race as he fades to retirement.
That leaves one liberal and two conservatives. Now that some actual votes are in the bag, it'll become more and more obvious every day that the base is not buying Romney's 11th hour conversion to pro-life conservatism and his numbers will begin falling off. Even with all the millions he spent in Iowa and with the media and the establishment GOP carrying his water, he could barely muster up 25% of the vote. The conservative base and the tea party do not want the unreliable flip-flopping Romney and we are not going to allow him to be shoved down our throats!!
No doubt he'll do ok in New Hampshire where he's concentrating his efforts, but he'll have a bit more of a struggle in conservative South Carolina and Florida. And by then I'm pretty sure we will have decided which conservative to coalesce behind for the remainder of the race and then on to defeating Obama!!
NOBAMA, NO ROMNEY, NO WAY!!

"What would you do Without FR?????
Suppose one day you tried to log on and Free Republic wasnt there? Where would you get your up to the minute news? How about the live threads as things are happening?
How would you know about the latest Demorat scams, anti-second amendment schemes and all the other liberal, anti-American ploys that are tried every single day?
Insight into world affairs, brilliant wit, sharp retorts, instant information gratification are a few of the things that make FR so vital.
How would you keep on top of things without FR?
How would you know who to contact to complain about the lying politicians, Media Bias, Hollyweirds latest mouth off, sponsors of these idiots, company policies that are unfair and all the other things we need to know to counteract the liberal mindset and the evil plans of liberals?
How would you be part of a Freep?
What would you do without FR????
Freedom isnt free.
If you enjoy the site and find it a place of like minded Americans to sound off, to get together, to fight back, to have your voice heard and make a difference, PLEASE CONTRIBUTE NOW! Jim cant do this alone.
The liberals are sure we wont be able to keep FR up & running. Prove them wrong. Show them we are indeed united Freepers. Whether it is $5.00, $50.00 or more, it all adds up. Please send a donation now to Free Republic."

"Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves. "
"It was the labor movement that helped secure so much of what we take for granted today.
The 40-hour work week, the minimum wage, family leave, health insurance, Social Security, Medicare, retirement plans.
The cornerstones of the middle-class security all bear the union label."

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
