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!!
Thomas Sowell seems to think he’s the only alternative at this point, so, I’m in.
Damn you, Sarah Palin. How could you desert us in our hour of need?
Like you, JimRob...my first choice is Sarah, but I think NEWT has the guts and the teeth to do what needs to be done to fix the mess created by the incompetent moron currently in the ‘People’s House’!

Amen to that!
One of the more creative freepers should do a rewrite of the Pointer Sisters song “Neutron Dance” for this election.
Bumping that new FReepathon thread!
Time to crank up that 1980s hit song by the Pointer Sisters called, “Newtron Dance”!
I like a lot about Newt and will never trash him, but I'm still not 100% sure I trust him. I detest Romney though and will support Newt 1000% over him if those are our two options.
Heh heh heh ... they are scared shiteless of Newt...he’s a bastard. But hes my bastard and in a knife fight, hell bring a gun and he has nothing to lose...his political career is over at this point if he doesnt win and he knows it. Hes a dangerous man. People dont understand that about Newt. I would be trying to take him down, if I were the elitist NE establishment Grand Old Potty, too.
Duty and Honor.
And if I hear that fat barsted up in NJ whining about how he can’t do the job because of his family commitments, but Newt isn’t the right one, Mittens is, I WILL show up at one of his town halls and I ain’t shy.
Is he unabashedly pro-Life?
"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."
Awesome! That was inspiring.
I was a Rick Santorum supporter and still like him; however, I will be voting for Newt here in Florida.
Santorum is genuine and intelligent but he sounds like the lawyer up there. I came to that conclusion about two weeks ago. The November election is going to be a street fight and Newt is the best conservative for that job.
I believe that Santorum could benefit from a few years as VP.
It's now a simple choice.
I TOTALLY Agree.
Just starting to pay attention to the JimRob posts. This expresses my sentiments exactly! Newt is now the man. He might have been my 5th or 6th choice, but I’ve finally settled on Newt. Why? Because he attacks the disease of big government and cuckolded press directly. He’s not perfect (but who is?) Newt will frustrate, enrage, and bedazzle you, but he knows American History and believes in freedom and limited government. Let’s get behind him and take a stand against RINOS and leftists.
GO NEWT GO.....
God Save Our Republic....
The Smoking Lamp is lit!!
Remember Folks, Only You can PuT an End To FReepathons!!!
north east elitist establishment view
Don;’t have Newt because he had divorces instead have their man who wants homosexuals to raise children, have openly serving homosexuals and cross dressers.
That is why the establishment is out of touch, they actually think the north east and the beltway is America and it is not but what would they know, they live up there mostly, and go to their elitist cocktail parties with their cross dressing homosexual pals and then take money off them for their elections.
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).
Jim Rob carrying the banner for the rebellion! Help keep it flying high!!!
My concern, Jim, is that there may be some truth to women not liking him.
Several women I know, who would walk over hot coals to vote against Obama, have said they’d vote for Gary Johnson or even Barry if Newt is the nominee.
Now, it could just be all talk, and they may well come around, as many Freepers themselves have (nobody here was rooting for Newt in August)...but it still worries me a bit.
I’m in no way saying to go for Romney, just that if it’s Newt, we might have an uphill battle.
Newt demonstrating the size of Obama’s manhood.
I want someone to throw firebombs at the left (including So called Republicans) send screaming the Harry Reids, Nancy Pelosi’s and anyone else a greenie, Marxist, Kucinich-type from the halls of congress. I want someone to stomp on conservative compassion until it squeals in agony and then move on to illegal immigration, taxes as welfare , Muslim superiority over civilization and THEN I want a person to get nasty to restore this Constitution to what it was intended to be. Gee, I think Newt is pissed enough to his “colleagues” to do just that.
