Dearest Marguerite, I listend to his speech and his analogy on the old black and white tv days vs modernization. I am so disheartened and sad that we had the chance to elect the best president since Reagan but I do not think it will happen. The establishment set out not just to beat Newt but to ridicule him and destroy him. With Fox blasting pro Romney ads and making fun of Newt constantly and also Drudge on Mitt’s is overwhelming. What will happen friday after Mitt announces he is the nominee? he wont debate anymore and the only news we will hear on Newt will be anything and everything set out to degrade him.
Newt is broke:( he can’t match the Romney organization.

I’ve made up my mind, Katie.

As long as Newt is in, I’m standing for and with him.

If Romney is the nominee, I’m done with politics,
turn off all political sites, TV and radio,
and spend my time on things I love best,
like Arts and literature.

It would have been a frosty day in hell, if I cast another vote on a RINO. NO WAY!

Here’s a similar opinion :

“I don’t like Mitt Romney’s negative attacks on Santorum, Gingrich, and the whole host of others inasmuch as they were dishonest attacks, and that’s part of why I don’t see much effective difference between he and Obama except the color of their respective jerseys, one red emblazoned with a big “R”, and the other blue and sporting a capital “D.”

If this is the best we conservatives can must in 2012, we will lose either way. Romney isn’t likely to win, but even if he does manage victory, we’ll be confronted with an administration every bit as much composed of virulent statism as the Obama administration.

It’s hard to be enthusiastic about that, particularly as a conservative. There’s still hope, slim and slimming as time goes on, but for now, and until further notice, I am on the Newt 2012 train.

Given the conduct of his campaign these last six-eight months, I’m not sure I can support the liberal governor from Massachusetts.

I think many other conservatives share my reservations, and that’s why some number of Santorum supporters are now shifting to Newt Gingrich.”

Found this unsigned text on the internet. It should go viral:

“Scary Obituary For The USA

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior:

“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government.
A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.
From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.”

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years.
During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.”

The Obituary follows:

Born 1776, Died 2012

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Obama 19, McCain 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000
McCain: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million
McCain: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 McCain: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare...”

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation’s population already having reached the “governmental dependency” phase.

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal’s - and they vote - then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message.

If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom..

This is truly scary!
Of course we are not a democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic .
Someone should point this out to Obama.
Of course we know he and too many others pay little attention to The Constitution.
There couldn’t be more at stake than on Nov 2012.
