A friend of mine, on her deathbed, told me that she could not begin to imagine what it would be like to be "in the presence of God's love all the time" .... and she was looking forward to it. This was the most simple and beautiful description of Heaven that I've ever heard.
Ah well four more years of Obamer. Romney isn’t going to and can’t win a national election. Yes, Newt can...he proved it with the house take over; he was the face of the “Republican Revolution” and made congressional races a national race with the “Contract with America”.
I think his no nonsense, non-plastic personality is called for in this time right now.
Yes, it has even infiltrated the minds of those we once trusted as close political confidants.
I am beginning to understand what it must have been like for the early Christians who never knew who their true friends and allies were at times.
The very reason the sign of the fish came into use. A Christian would draw half the fish in the sand with their foot, and if the other person was a Christian they would complete the simple fish drawing.
They knew they were truly with a brother/sister in Christ. If Romney wins this and either he wins the presidency or Obama gets re-elected we will be doing very similar things in a few years.
They are already arresting pastors in Europe and even Canada for preaching against homosexuality. If either of these two anti-Christian men are in control, get ready for similar things down the road.
I for one will be spending a lot of time in jail, because I will never stop confessing my faith in Christ by speaking the truth. I worry for my grandchildren. The world they will inherit is going to be a world unlike any that has been seen before. Only the evil in hearty will be comfortably satisfied.
We have given up our freedom, for a semblance of safety.
God help us.
Ron Paul is dangerous.
Ron Paul, Soros and Defense
Before everyone gets their panties in a wad. Obama is already starting to make the moves to destroy our military.
Ron Paul will just drive the knife into their backs.
I thought it was clever how the Obama military haters are going to cut Benefits for veterans and wounded soldiers.
Wonder how far enlistment will drop on that one.
One of Ron Pauls best friends is George Soros..
Talk about revisionist history. Maybe you should express your talking points with JimRob.
Damn the torpedoes!
God help us is right.
Like Jim wrote tonight,
“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God”!!
We’ll keep our faith, dearest OneVike and we’ll never stop praying.
“Lord, Hear our prayer.”
These zealots go nutz through their hatred, but they will always say “they don’t hate.” RLY? Then why lie?
(I hope I am included in the post because I disagreed with “patriot Pastor”)
I fear for this nation. We have allowd GOD to be taken from the forefront of our nation and our lives, and as the good book says “As ye sow, so shall ye reap”
GOD shows us the way...it is up to the individual to chhose to follow.....unfortunately, I see politicians as the Temple of thieves and taxcollectors...and we desperately need a Moses! NOT a MORMON

"in the presence of God's love all the time"
Ron Paul’s Soros Defense Plan
Santorum is the Endorser. He has been throwing support if not delegates to Romney with both hands already, no doubt in a bloody quest for a dang job.
By the time this vulture drops out he will have so damaged Newt among his own supporters that by drop time they will naturally move away from Newt and over to Romney.
I am thinking Ron Paul will run Third Party. Unless, perhaps Newt, by then, can be seen leading a broad and sweeping populist movement, enough to impress Paul, and they negotiate some kind of an alliance that benefits Uncle Nutty too. Third Party is a dead ender, but Ron Paul is prepared to cause a RINO crack up with no further delay. And...so am I.
It upsets me that if Florida is “Winner take all” that Santorum didn’t have the Cahones to ask that his voters enter their vote for Gingrich...that does not mean he is quitting, it merely means he would have supported a fellow Conservative, rather than allow his “fans” to waste their vote! Same goes for Michelle Bachmann! For the love of GOD< do these people not read or listen to the news? WHY did they waste their vote on her? (she asked with head tilted to the right, not unlike the old RCA Victor dog)
I remember some other things about his leadership. 4% unemployment, a balanced budget, spending at its lowest levels in my lifetime. An economy in great shape. A GOP Congress that actually got Clinton to govern as the most fiscally conservative President in my lifetime.
I’d give anything to see Boehner display even a hint of such “absentee leadership”. At least Newt wasn’t crying and rolling over for Clinton at every opportunity. Even Stephanopolous admits that Newt was about to win the shutdown before Dole cut him off at the knees and negotiated his own deal with Clinton to end it.
Newt was actually on the verge in late 97/early 98 of getting Clinton to reform social security and medicare through privatization, means testing and block grants before the whole Monica issue took over and ended any hopes of cooperation.
Newt’s voting record is pretty much the same as Dick Cheney’s. Is Cheney a progressive? If you look at Newt and Cheney from 1979-1988 when they were both in the House their voting records are virtually identical.
Newt Gingrich had 4 years executive exp running the most fiscally conservative and economically productive House in recent US history in many respects. He ended welfare as we know it and got Bill Clinton to tell the country “the era of Big Govt is over”.
Romney had 4 yrs running one of the most liberal states in the country and his big achievement was creating a new entitlemnt that served as the model for Obamacare.
Rick Santorum’s #1 issue has always been abortion. Mitt Romney would be the most pro-abortion GOP nominee in history. Romney was pro-abortion after Roe, after Casey, after Stenberg. While Rick Santorum was battling Barbara Boxer on the floor over partial birth abortion Romney was telling Planned Parenthood he agreed with Roe, appointing pro choice judges to the MA courts, setting up $50 copays for abortion under Romneycare, and appointing PP board memebers to the MA state health payment board.
Newt meanwhile has a 99.6 lifetime rating from the NRLC.
For Santorum and his supporters to help Romney given his history on abortion is amazing to me.
Thank you for your comments! You are spot on!
Boener needs to get the hell out of the Speakers seat! he is an alcoholic, hence his propensity for weeping at the drop of a hat at any time during the day or night! I do not honestly know who was worse...Stretch Pelosi and her batting those buggy eyes, and adjusting her dentures like a cow with vineers, or Boehner and his alcoholic flush, weeping and blubbering like a damned fool, when he isnt sharing a round of golf and some beer with the Idiotinchief!
Were those 0% write-ins, or were they actually listed on the ballot.
Thanks for the heads up ping, mojo114.
Thanks very much, dear nutmeg! I see now that missed mojo114’s post to me! I’m so sorry mojo114!!
GO TEA PARTY!
You and Santorum are two peas in a pod.
No, it's not a compliment.

Maybe Romney's promised to pay for that portion of Bella's care not covered by insurance?
Which polls???... Drudgiepoo was posting them all weekend!!!!!!!
Can you beleive it. If Romney wins that will mean that there were two consecutive presidents that were not Christian? Mindboggling!!!!
It’s not over. SOmehow, I have this feeling that something is going to happen to bring Newt to the forefront, as the Iranian crisis did for REagan.
Santorum brings nothing to the table. He dilutes the debate.
The American people must have Newt one on one with Romney.
I’m wondering if Romney will refuse to debate from here on out.
god, I hope so.
I can guarantee you that the conservatives from biggest Red State prize (TX) do not like Romney.
Most of us realize that 99% of used car salesman have more sincerity than him.
Has anyone seen any stats of how dim crossover votes broke?
“Romney is giving a decent conservative free market attack on Obama. That is just a fact.”
Oh Oh. You have transgressed FR PC
Thou shalt not say anything remotely positive about Mitt Romney, least ye be cast into the outer darkness.
I am sick over this The more I read about Willard’s cult the more frightened I get, it’s the epitome of evil
The problem is he doesn’t talk about Romney’s lies or Romney’s liberalism.
I never dispute Romney was a liberal in Mass. However Romney is a conservative now. Is he sincere now? Was he then?
A little reaity check includes that within the past 2 years Newt flirted with many liberal ideas, including global warming, cap and trade, etc. Rush Limbaugh repeatedly criticized him. Rush also had to tell Newt the Bein Capital attacks were not conservative.
I don’t dismiss Newt for it and I don’t dismiss Romney. I’m adult enough to know what is going on. Politics, ego and ambition.
I would rate Newt/Mitt equal as to likelihood they will revert to some liberalism. I accept it for both. Santorum is a completely different sincere conservative.
Thank you all very much for the warm welcome :) I am glad to be back.
WOO-HOO! Now, don’t be a stranger, dearest you!!!!!
You really think, with Republican senators he'd need for confirmation, that he'd nominate a Sotomayor or Kagan? I don't. And those justices will be around for decades.
Would he block an entitlement reform like the Ryan plan, as Obama does?
There's a lot to dislike about Romney, but he's no Obama.
Huckabee is still waiting on Romney to call him and congratulate him on IA 08 win.
Not only does Romneys coronation get rid of the Tea Party and conservatives for Rove and his RINO Country Club Status Quo bunch, it helps the dems keep the continuity of their schtick.
Obama and Romney are IDENTICAL politically, ESPECIALLY when it comes to the VERY important decision on permanently totally repealing Obamacare.
Obama can counter every political Romney arguement with I know YOU are, but what am I and clobber him over the head HARD with the 99% crap that hes a 1%er.
Geeee....that only leaves ONE itty - bitty difference.
Wanna guess what THAT is??????
Try skin pigmentation.
It worked for Obama BIG TIME in 2008. Romney is the ONLY candidate they can REALLY use it on because they are identical in almost every other way.
Romney WON'T attack Obama like he has Newt, because they will pin the "racist" tag on him so fast that his head will spin faster that his political flip-flops.
So Myth will "play nice" with Obama, he'll try to get everyone to sing "America The Beautiful" ( the fake crap he semms to be doing at ALL his Florida stops) and get KILLED in Nov, as is the GOP-e"plan" (see pic above), except Romney AND Rick don't seem to see it......YET.
Lil' Ricky WILL be "handed" the VP slot to "shut up" the "Santorum" and Tea Party "Conservative" people and with Romney's defeat, ensure Lil' Ricky won't be a problem to Rove and the GOP-E EVER AGAIN. With the Tea Party out of the way of BOTH parties for 2012 and 2016, Romney out of the way for 2012 AND 2016, the dems TOTALLY despised after 8 years of Obama, Rove and the boys can run Jeb for 2016 with NOBODY in their way.
OBTW, The pic below was taken last Friday afternoon Jan27th, 2012 , the day after "Bloody-Up Newt" Thursday by every RINO Country Clubber in this particular corner of the universe.
How many photos of those three together have YOU seen??
Pretty much ALL the polls earier in the week had Newt leading in Florida, until the "suddenly" orchestrated RINO Newt attack which culminated Thursday before the debate, and THEN on Friday, I see THIS photo??
What in the heck could the three of them "constructively" have important enough in common to "get together" and talk about??
Maybe Barry just wanted ask them over to find out how "W" was doin', you know, the son and brother of the two guys in the pic who he STILL TO THIS MINUTE blames EVERYTHING bad that has happened to date in his administration on and two years before he replaced him in office???
Yeah, that's the ticket.
I have an idea, and I mentioned it in the post above the pic..
Newt and Sarah have been TRYING to warn the Tea Party and Conservatives about this BIG TIME!!
(Sorry, but my Reynolds Wrap cap dang near fell off when I saw it.) THIS is why people are upset with Lil' Ricky.
Either he is TOTALLY IGNORANT, or he's "in on the deal".
There is NO in between.
Great to “see” you JV, glad you’re back!
Checked past posts thoroughly...no comment.
Great to see you too Jaz :)
