Sarah Palin was my first choice for president, but the left, the GOP establishment and many right here on FR wouldnt have it. They trashed her and her family relentlessly with some of the unholiest filth and disgusting lies imaginable. Even so, I did little about it. I felt it was best to let the debate run its course on FR and that the best hard nosed conservative would rise to the top. Well, they drove her completely out and she didnt run. Didnt want to subject her family to such horrific pain and suffering. And who can blame her?
Then one by one, they turned their guns on and did the same thing to Gingrich, Perry, Bachmann, Cain and Santorum driving their support numbers down and Perry, Cain and Bachmann completely out of the race. As each one took their successive turns as our leading non-Romney conservative, they were relentlessly attacked, trashed and driven out.
Looked like we were repeating 2008 and were going to be stuck with a sure loser RINO again and Obama would waltz in for a second destructive term. Were now running out of qualified conservative candidates and Ill be damned if Im going to allow Free Republic to be used to drive out our last remaining best conservative shot of defeating both Romney and Obama!!
Then a funny thing happened. Newt Gingrich, whom theyd destroyed and left for dead, arose from the grave and began smiting the heathen. Hes back as a born again hard as nails, no nonsense, bad ass battle scarred veteran of two greatly successful conservative revolutions--the Reagan Revolution of the 80s and then his own Republican Revolution of the 90s--and he's kicking godless RINO ass!!
I'm all in with the Gingrich Rebellion!!
Ive looked at Newts plan. Its Reagans plan on steroids. Radically reduce government, regulations, taxes, spending and the deficit! Restore constitutionally limited government! Restore states rights, restore individual rights, restore economic freedom! Restore superiority through superior firepower and restore American exceptionalism! Whack and dethrone the dictatorial liberal activist judiciary! Get the government the hell off our backs, out of our lives and out of our religion, and stop the wholesale slaughter of the innocent unborn!!
In short, restore our God-give unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness!!
We are the sovereigns!!
Now what is there not to like?
The GOP establishment claims that Newt is too extreme and not electable. That he will be unacceptable to evangelicals, women and the so-called independents.
Well, I guess South Carolina put the lie to that rubbish. Newt Gingrich won the majority of every important demographic category, including seniors, evangelicals, women AND the independents!! The only demographic Romney took was the LIBERALS! Now, why is that?
Newt has the support of the conservative base, the tea party rebels, the evangelicals and the independents and we are forming a Reaganesque coalition to defeat the GOP establishment RINO and the Obama Marxists!!
And now Newt is the leading Republican in the national polls. Guess the GOP establishment is full of baloney on that one, too (as usual).
"Electability" (as defined by the GOP-E) gave us Ford and Dull and McLame. Voting for the crazy right-wing extremist gave us Ronald Reagan!!
They dismissed us before. They denied us, denigrated us, trashed us, tried to ignore us, but now they FEAR us!! And they should.
When the people fear the government there is tyranny.
When the government (or the GOP establishment in this case) fears the people, there is Liberty!!
Fear of the people is a good thing.
The Declaration of Independence explains that government derives its "just powers" from the consent of the governed and clearly lays out our recourse when government becomes abusive or destructive to our freedom and God-given Liberty:
"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, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
I say alter it then!! The government is clearly out of its constitutional bounds!!
Secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity!!
We are rebels seeking to take back our freedom or arent we?
Rebellion is ON!!
Join or die!!
Dont tread on me!!
May God continue to Bless America and may our Liberty be completely restored!!
Keep it coming, folks, we are the resistance!!
Thank you all very much!!
Your id is comebacknewt, you signed on in 2000, and you’re not sure you trust him? I bet there’s an interesting story there! :)
To those who don’t trust Newt I ask, why would he betray conservatism if he wins the White House? What’s in it for him? Was he looking for approval and warmth when in Congress, or did he step on toes to advance conservatism? As a historian, does he want to be remembered in history as a man who caved or as a man who did what he was elected to do?
Let’s elect Newt then suggest that he nominates her for energy secretary.Would bring her more into the public eye where they can’t call her stupid anymore.Imagine what $2 a gallon gas would do to that myth?
" I guess it's more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here and a strong woman and-- you know? But that's been an image that people have tried to paint of me since the day Barack announced, that I'm some angry black woman."
Newt at one time was my hero. I loved absolutely everything about him. Lets just say my views on Newt have "evolved" a bit over the years. ;)
This is a pro Newt thread though, and I don't want to say anything to take away from it, so I will drop it at that.
Change her theme music from "Barracuda" to "Heartbreaker"...sigh
"As our enemies have found we can reason like men, so now let us show them we can fight like men also."
“Lets elect Newt then suggest that he nominates her for energy secretary.”
As long as she has the power and authority to make things happen, sounds good.
last nights painful SOTU address, and the attacks coming from all sides to stop Newt and make Romney the one I too have come to a final decision to back Newt. He is the one that can do it. The Washington establishment, i.e. Karl Rove, Lindsey Grahamnesty , John McCain, Boenher, Pelosi, ..... these ones are all siding with each other to make Newt unelectable.
Great speech Jim. Thanks!
I agree 100%. The MSM and GOP establishment are trying to force Romney on us-—someone who I don’t remember said—”Romney is an Obama with a white face”. That we know is the truth. Romney is no better than the Marxist in Chief.
Newt has given some great speeches-—his thinking is so logical and in tune with the Founding Fathers. I don’t know if I trust him to do as he says, but he is the best shot we have at this point. We need to all get behind him and then hold him to his words!!!!! Newt is an intellectual and can win all debates.
He also has the “meanness” quality which is crucial in all leaders if they want to gain power and keep it. Nice does not work in politics. (Machiavelli).
