Record of Accomplishment and New Imperative to Return America to that Shinning City on a Hill

Well......

That's where a record comes in. Not just the record of votes, which is often a meaningless toll of positions taken for political reasons on bills that were always going to pass or were never going to pass, but a record of actions taken that actually mattered.

A record of actions taken that actually mattered.  Newt is the man who fits that description to a "T".

He can identify what is most important to the country, develop a plan to overcome that challenge, articulate the the merits of overcoming the challenge and why the plan will work.

I hadn't been for Gingrich initially and spent plenty of energy excoriating him, these last several years, for any number of sins he committed against the Republican/Conservative ideals.  He seemed a turncoat of sorts, particularly when he babysat Pelosi on the couch.

On reflection, Newt is an attention whore seeking relevancy for his ideas and I guess I take him at his word that he made a few mistakes in his life and he has at least some regret for those decisions.  God knows I am no angel and so I have to reflect on the man's ability to get things done.

Newt gave us the Republican majority, the Contract with America and completed 2/3rds of his agenda while in office.

He now has a new plan for America and with what is likely to become a Congressional Super Majority and a Senate Majority, if not Super Majority, I believe he will absolutely accomplish his agenda.

Say goodbye to ObamaCare the single biggest scam and travesty foisted upon a free people who, by right, ought to have been given the opportunity to read the bill and debate it.  Instead, a win at all cost, cheating agenda was developed and it was signed with most people never laying eyes on at least page 2 of this utopian dreck.

Executive Orders Positions:

The following are all within the executive powers to simply order and with the exception of securing the border within one year, they are all easily accomplished with the stroke of a pen and no way to challenge them in the legislature.

Keystone may be challenged in the courts but I think the Executive can order the EPA to approve, under National Security Priorities and it is a National Security issue, as well, a jobs issue.

As President, Newt, could actually have a very busy 1st week or month just on these initiative alone.

1. Eliminate the thirty-nine White House "Czar" positions created during the current administration. The president does not have the authority to appoint bureaucrats to power who are not accountable to the Congress.

2. "Mexico City Policy" of Respect for Life. Reauthorize President Ronald Reagan’s policy – also known as the "Mexico City Policy"— to stop tax payer dollars from being used to fund or promote abortions in foreign countries.

3. Restore conscience clause protections for Healthcare Workers.No American working in a medical environment should be forced to perform any procedure that he or she finds morally or ethically objectionable based on religious teaching. This protection should include, but not be limited to abortion. Existing conscience clause protections need to be strengthened.

4. Respect Each Sovereign Nation’s Choice of its Capital. Each sovereign nation, under international law and custom, may designate its own Capital. Accordingly, the U.S. State Department should be instructed to respect the choice of each sovereign nation and place the American embassy in their Capital.  (Israel is the only country the United States discriminates against in this regard. The people of Israel have designated Jerusalem as their capital. Yet the United States retains its embassy in Tel Aviv.) 

5. End the Attorney General's Assault on the States. Instruct the Attorney General to withdraw all immigration-related lawsuits against states immediately, including those pending in Arizona and South Carolina. The Obama Administration refuses to enforce federal immigration laws, and instead sues states who are merely trying to enforce the laws that the federal government neglects. The Gingrich Administration will secure the border by Jan. 1, 2014 by any means necessary. 

6. The Keystone Pipeline

Unleash American Energy by Approving the Keystone XL Pipeline. Instruct the State Department to approve a Presidential Permit immediately for the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that will send 700,000 barrels of oil a day from Great Plains and Southwestern states to Gulf Coast refineries lower staggering energy prices, and create up to 120,000 American jobs.

LEGISLATIVE PROPOSALS

 Now we get into the details of an inclusive agenda that brings the people(you and me), through their representatives, into process.  The TEA Party and conservatives are going to have a majority in both houses.

Let’s elect an Executive who will absolutely fulfill the promise of our ideals.

Executive Summary

  1. Repeal Obamacare and pass a replacement that saves lives and money by empowering patients and doctors, not bureaucrats and politicians.
  2. Return to robust job creation with a bold set of tax cuts and regulatory reforms that will free American entrepreneurs to invest and hire, as well as by reforming the Federal Reserve and creating a training requirement for extended federal unemployment benefits to encourage work and improve the quality of our workforce.
  3. Unleash America’s full energy production potential in oil, natural gas, coal, biofuels, wind, nuclear oil shale and more, creating jobs,  stimulating a sustainable manufacturing boom, lowering gasoline and other energy prices, increasing government revenues, and bolstering national security.
  4. Save Medicare and Social Security by giving Americans more choices and tools to live longer, healthier lives with greater financial independence.
  5. Balance the federal budget by freeing job-creators to grow the economy, reforming entitlements, and implementing waste cutting and productivity improvement systems such as Lean Six Sigma to eliminate waste and fraud. Pass a balanced budget amendment to keep it balanced.
  6. Control the border by January 1, 2014 and establish English as the official language of government; reform the legal visa system, and make it much easier to deport criminals and gang members while making it easier for law abiding visitors to come to the US.
  7. Revitalize our national security system to meet 21st century threats by restructuring and adequately funding our security agencies to function within a grand strategy for victory over those who seek to kill us or limit American power.
  8. Maximize the speed and impact of medical breakthroughs by removing unnecessary obstacles that block new treatments from reaching patients and emphasizing research spending towards urgent national priorities, like brain science with its impact on Alzheimer’s, autism, Parkinson's, mental health and other conditions knowledge of the brain will help solve. 
  9. Restore the proper role of the judicial branch by using the clearly delineated powers available to the president and Congress to correct, limit, or replace judges who violate the Constitution.
  10. Enforce the Tenth Amendment by starting an orderly transfer of power and responsibility from the federal government back “to the states, respectively, or to the people,” as the Constitution requires. Over the next year, state and local officials and citizens will be asked to identify the areas which can be transferred back home.    

Newt gave us the three most important victories of the 90’s Welfare Reform, Balanced Budget and Reduced Taxes.  I hope I don’t need to describe the benefits of those victories.  They ought to be obvious to everyone by now.

Lastly, there have been some reports that Newt shouldn’t get all the credit.  Really?  Then perhaps we marginalize the accomplishments of Washington, Roosevelt, Kennedy and ….wait for it… Reagan.

Do we really want to go down the road with that kind of adolescent sophistry and parsing of what happened?

Newt is the guy who thought of these big things, proposed them and shepherded their implementation?

Newt has once again identified what is important to us now, at this time and described how we can get there with our representative majorities. He has done it before and I declare Newt Gingrich was then and is Now a leader.

We should elect Newt Gingrich to the Presidency of the United States

The biggest enemy business has today is the EPA, the only one of the candidates that will get rid of it is Ron Paul. Newt’s a great debater, but he is not a Constitutionalist, Ron Paul is.

Folks if things like the EPA are not eliminated you are going to be paying $8 for a eight foot 2X4 in three years.

We cannot afford 4 more years of tinkering, we need a surgeon, a man who will gut this inefficient, costly, brutal, g0vernemnt. That is not Newt, it is Dr. Paul. Look at the previous 20 yeartrack record of both.

Gingrich is a socialist and he hates conservatives. Don’t fall for the media lies. From starting out as a Rockefeller Republican, to spending the 2000s working for Nancy Pelosi, he went further left. He spent one year (1994) pretending to be a conservative. Don’t fall for the media shoving him down our throat. At least Santorum is still in the race.

I have really struggled this election. The only things I have been certain of is who NOT to vote for - Romney and Paul.

Other than that, like most others I have been supporting several others, Bachman, Cain and Santorum as an ‘anti-Romney’.

However, it is becoming increasingly clear that Newts debate performance is beyond reporoach and although he does come with some baggage, he is our best hope to get rid of Romney and beat Zero.

So, I guess I’m in - albeit reluctantly.

Newt has already said he will get rid of the EPA and it’s crazy regulations.

Well actually he said he would eliminate the EPA and replace it with an environmental solutions agency which among other things would "incentivize" energy and things like flex fuel vehicles.

Gingrich’s list of energy policies includes providing incentives for flex fuel vehicles that can use corn-based ethanol rather than gasoline — a key issue for Iowa’s farm economy.

Newt Gingrich proposes abolishing EPA(and replacing it with a new agency)

He restated his plan for this new agency at the Huckabee forum last month. Despite his claim that the agency would be pro business, no such animal exists. If one did, it would only exist till the democrats kill it or turn it into a weapon.

Any business that needs incentives to survive is a free market failure and deserves to die. Also there's the fact that our tax dollars would be supporting this federal agency forever.

I fully support your right to follow your concience and vote for the candidate of your choice.

I simply cannot bring myself to vote for Mr. Gingrich. I simply do not trust him. He has revealed his true character in his dealings with his ex-wives, showing he will put his interests above those of his closest relationships. Character is not separable between private and public lives. One's values are truly revealed when they cost you something If he will cheat on his wives and toss them under the bus when it serves his interests, I am forced to conclude that he will toss us all under the bus if it comes to choose his self interests our ours. Quite frankly, in my view Me. Gingrich has failed the test and lost my vote. I used to be a big fan of his. We used videos of his "Democracy in America" course as curricula to home school our children many years ago (before the Callista scandal during the Clinton impeachment.) There are principled Republican and Libertarian candidates. I will choose one of those.

Newt is a pro-life Reagan conservative. Led the Republican revolution of the 90s that brought the Republicans the majority after the democrats had held it for forty years. As speaker, he cut taxes, cut spending, cut regulations, cut the deficit, balanced the budget, reformed welfare, reduced unemployment and created a pro-growth, pro-jobs economy that extended the Reagan economy throughout the 90’s. Oh yeah, and he blocked a Romney/Obama like socialist healthcare system from becoming law, HillaryCare.

Gingrich is NO socialist nor does he hate conservatives. Romney on the other hand loathes conservatives, loathes Reagan and loathes the tea party.

Go, NEWT!!

Leftists, MittBots, PaulBots, RINOs, Karl Rove establishment types and trolls of many stripes and colors have one-by-one driven our leading grassroots conservative candidates out of the race. They worked for years on Palin, then Perry, then Cain, then Bachmann, now Newt. When ever a non-establishment, non-RINO conservative gets into the lead they open fire and 24/7 trash and torpedo until they drive them out.

NO MORE!!

If you want to troll and trash our conservative candidates, take your business elsewhere! PaulBots can take it to a liberaltaraian site. RomneyBots to FOX News. RINO trolls to the NY Times. Lib trolls to DU. Abortionist/statist trolls to hell. I don’t care where you go, but if you’re here to trash Newt 24/7, I’m gunning for your azz!!

REBELLION IS HERE!!

WAR IS HELL!!

DON’T TREAD ON ME!

So who do you propose? ROMNEY is 100% worthless and not worthy of being President of anything. Wake-up people and face reality.

Santorum is good on paper but not good in person, he doesn’t inspire I am sad to say.

Paul? NO WAY IN HELL. The guy is crazy.

Gingrich at least can debate, inspire, isn’t crazy and isn’t Romney.

So who do you support?

Rebellion is brewing!!

We should rebuild the grassroots conservative movement. From the Reagan Revolution of 1980 through the Contract with America in 1994, it was this movement from outside Washington that carried us to the first center-right majority governing coalition in more than 60 years.

The problem has not been with conservatism or with our voters.

The problem has been with Republican leaders who forgot who elected them and what values their supporters expected to see implemented in Washington.

— Newt Gingrich, 11-13-2006

I try to be fair and even here to discus topics that FR brings to light to further knowledge and personal wisdom. However, anyone who hasn't figured out by now that Paul is a mental case is not paying attention. I'm voting for Newt, as I have consistently said since the begining when there were 8, but if you want to vote for Santorum, that's fine by me. Now that leaves Mitt and Paul. Try to imagine Mitt against Obama. He is the architect of Obama care and I don't think anyone can wiggle out of that piece of film that will be showed on a loop for months. He voted for an gun ban, abortion, and gay marriage. Many would even say he's not a Christian. He's a loser against Obama. It will be the same as McCain or Dole. Just a bunch of mush against a Socialist/Marxist. Then you have Paul. He's a mental case. I live in Texas and he was my congressman for awhile till I moved. I've tried to be a libertarian, but just can't get past the platform. It's a bunch of ideological claptrap that has NO practical application. So far we have been talking about right and wrong ideals that we could survive if we were wrong. Paul, OTOH, would allow a nuke to explode in NYC to make a point. He's not rational. This goes beyond some founding Father ideal that he has misread. It is sheer lunacy. He has no clue what the 12th Imam is or what they play's in Shiite religion. They aren't like the N. Koreans or the Russians, who might not want to die. Iranians have already made the statement they are willing to lose 60 million to attack Israel because that guarantee's paradise for them. You can't treat Iran like you would the Soviet Union because they are mentally ill and WANT to die for the cause. Paul doesn't get that. He's an idiot. He and you, believe you have the inside track on the Founders and the Constitution, but in fact we attacked the Barbary Pirates early in our history and had many military adventures in the early days of the Republic. I know what Washington said in his Farewell speech and it was wonderful, but you can't defend the country without putting some lead downrange.

You are just misinformed if you think Newt would "tinker" with the EPA, or anything else. Newt IS the change agent you are looking for, but you are so stuck on a madman, you haven't bothered to look at the other candidates. Paul hasn't got a chance in hell of getting past 3rd place anywhere and if we nominate him, he will lose so big it will be embarrassing. Wishing it wasn't that way won't get him elected and will most assuredly result in another 4 for Obama.

If you don't like Newt, fine for for Mitt or Santorum, but it is lunacy to even think that Paul has a chance in hell. Mitt will lose to Obama because he is a RINO from Massachusetts. That leaves Santorum and Newt. Santorum will lose because he is a loser from Penn that backs the unions. I would hate to see another 4 years of Obama because Newt got a divorce. The safety of the country comes first in my book.

I attended a GA townhall with Newt Gingrich in late Oct. He spoke at length about his 21st Century Contract For America and also his ideas about the EPA. I agree with Newt that we have to have some basic standards such as clean drinking water etc. He plans to replace the EPA with a small streamlined agency that will work with business to find solutions that help the environment but that will not jeopardize our standard of living or get in the way of corporations to do business. Ethanol is just one part of the story. Gingrich plans to cut out the regs so the coal industry can crank back up again and he is going to drill baby drill. This is what we need to be doing.

The Ethanol subsidy question is in the public domain for debate. As time goes by it will become more and more apparent that the most inefficient way to produce ethanol is from corn. As I understand it the legislature is already planning to cut out the ethanol corn subsidy anyway. Sugar is a much better way to go with ethanol.

None of us is going to find a presidential candidate that we agree 100% with. I’m going with Newt because I agree with him about 90% of the time. Maybe we can all change his mind about the Ethanol corn subsidy.

Gingrich is a socialist

"Socialist" is an epithet tossed around as promiscuously as "RINO" on FR these days. It no longer conveys meaningful information, because it means something different to each person who uses it.

That’s hardly the only problem with Gingrich, its just one part of his small government conservatism that is anything but small.

A small government conservative would eliminate the EPA and let the market decide which industries can stand or fall. If they can’t survive without incentives, they are a failure.
