"I speak for at least half the people here, including the Founder Jim Robinson, who has stated he will not vote for Giuliani under any circumstance."
Don't Cut and Run, vote pro-life every time. It's the way you always win.
We cannot diminish the value of one category of human life the unborn without diminishing the value of all human life. Ronald Reagan
My Fair Lady
on TCM at 8:00 eastern...
The movie opens as Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison, who originated the role on stage) meets Colonel Hugh Pickering (Wilfred Hyde-White, also a member of the original cast) as they are leaving the theater. It turns out that the two have admired each other’s work in linguistics for years. Higgins hears Eliza Doolittle (Hepburn) bawling in a cockney accent of singular gracelessness and makes a bet with Pickering that he can turn her into a lady with an accent so pure no one will guess her background.
It’s easy for her. She’s proudly pro abortion. She doesn’t pretend otherwise.
And bigger breasts!
His dresses are much more modest too.
Like I said you win, we don’t vote.
If your vote would’ve went for a gun grabbing abortionist liberal, I’d say great! Cogratulations! Welcome to the fight for Life and Liberty!
Actually, remember since 1973 we have had 3 years of President Ford, 8 years of President Reagan, 4 Years of President Bush I, and 7 years of Bush II. This is 22 years out of the 34 years since Roe vs. Wade.
Abortion is unchanged in America. In 2006 14,000 abortions were done in Minnesota. They don't even bother to record in what trimester the abortions were done.
This has been a top drawer issue, actually a litmus test issue, for "social conservatives" and "value voters" for 34 years. In that time little or nothing has been accomplished that actually reduced the number of abortions. Your suggested progress is all window dressing provided by the politicians to pander for your votes.
“His dresses are much more modest too”
Maybe somebody should tell Rudy his dresses are looking rather frayed!
He’s playing the Wizard. Regardless, he said he won’t vote for Fred. I might have had McCain there inst. of Mitt, but Dobson may not endorse a Morman anyway...as far as I’m concerned, the audio says it all...
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
Fifty six patriotic Americans signed that document. Many of them did lose everything, EXCEPT their honor. I can't imagine what they would think about the cold-blooded murder of 3500 innocent Americans EVERY DAY.
“NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN LIFE”
If you’re not going to fight against abortionist liberals, why are you on Free Republic?
Then what's the difference between Rudy and one of your Pol's who says he'll make Pro-life part of his litmus test?? If all politicians will lie to get in office??
Reality is, judges should rule by the law...not politics. The only litmus test should be will you uphold the laws of this nation...(not create them or involve your personal opinions....Too much today, from both conservative and liberal judges...we have judges who see their court rooms as their own playpens).
“Fifty six patriotic Americans signed that document. Many of them did lose everything, EXCEPT their honor. I can’t imagine what they would think about the cold-blooded murder of 3500 innocent Americans EVERY DAY.”
Sure you can......they would be mortified!
“If your vote wouldve went for a gun grabbing abortionist liberal”
Isn’t that the beast?
Yup. Both of them.
Because the politicians I vote for have proven pro-life records, Rooty Toots openly supports abortion (and my suspicion is that a majority of the Rooty Rooters support abortion as well).
Furthermore, those who believe litmus tests should be on our judges regarding abortion are wrong... The only litmus test should be will you uphold the laws of this nation / constitution....WITHOUT interjecting your own opinion or politics.
Either you support the sanctity of life, or you don't.
I'm not about to vote for a liberal to appease you and others like you.
You have met the enemy. The she beast wears pants and the other a dress. Otherwise they are equally evil.
Surgery can work wonders.................LOL.
Conservatives don’t vote for abortionists!
John Q Adams told me to stand up on principle!
A dem Congress (and we will be losing seats this election) and a Hillary president? There might not be a country to save after 8 years.
We survived 8 years of Slick, didn't we? This without the blogs, Internet, FR, etc.
And you willing to take that chance makes me say again that you and people like you are NOT PATRIOTS.
I ain't voting for no Fruity if he's the nominee, forget it! Those who say that I'm helping to elect Hillary can kiss my behind.
If I may take a phrase from the day: you're PHONY PATRIOTS...you can't be a patriot and believe the whole country rests on one issue.
You're the phony patriot, not me. I ain't scared of Hillary like you guys are, hiding under your blankets with the light on and crap.
If he had some special qualifications to be president, I might overlook my suspicion that he's another Larry Craig and that Hillary's thugs are going to expose him after he gets the nomination.
But I don't see any special qualifications. What are you seeing there that's so damned special?
I doubt very much Rudy supports "abortions" (the act itself). Though he may support the notion that it is not the federal govt's role (or courts) to regulate it. Perhaps giving it back to the States to decide individually.
The WH is a job title that requires a larger mind frame then simply tying oneself to a one-issue voting base. Especially understanding that the pro-life side is winning. Facts, education and technology are all pushing the tide for the pro-life'ers.
Rudy agrees with conservative judges on the whole. That he may differ on the issue of abortion is immaterial on the whole.
OK fine, I promise not to vote for eater beast, Happy? Is that a win?
Mayor of New York City easily qualifies one for president. It is a job that is harder than most governorships and even running most countries. There is a reason it is referred to as the second hardest job in America. This says nothing about the positions of someone that has been NYC mayor, but they are nonetheless very qualified.
No, it rests on "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." Without LIFE the other two will eventually disappear, which I suppose is the ultimate goal of you and your liberal ilk.
Anytime, anyone stands up for the sanctity of life, they'll get my vote. Reagan was pro-life. He got my vote. Fred is pro-life. He wants an end to Roe v Wade and abortion on demand abolished as the national policy of the US government. That is something I can wholeheartedly support.
Sound position - I'd suggest Rudy has actually run something. He has actual had to be a leader, an actual decision maker! - Compared to the DEM alternatives, right there, that makes him special.
I've never said Rudy's "my man/candidate" - But I understand the seriousness of what is facing our next POTUS/CinC....and we cannot allow the ilk of the Democrat party in that position.
I clearly understand Rudy would be without question the correct choice (on the whole) for this nation over the Democrat candidate. Full stop.
I agree fully. Lesser then two evils... I wont sit by and let another KLINTON be president. NEVER NEVER NEVER!
I’m with you, if you mean Rudy > Hillary/ Obama/ Edwards, yes.
No way I’m voting for Rudy in the primary.
He is on record as saying he would pay for his daughter to get one, as president he would try to get the American taxpayers for them.
The WH is a job title that requires a larger mind frame then simply tying oneself to a one-issue voting base.
Agreed, Rooty Tooty showing up at Ground Zero on 9/11 is "one issue" so he should just drop out now.
Calling people names has not worked. “Carrying the fight” has not worked.
Just look at the results after 34 years. Paltry to no real change has been the rule. Even by those “pro-life” politicians who seem to get religion just before every election.
As a beginning, go across the aisle and try to make the law of the land require fetal sonograms required and available to all planning to abort their child. Then add one day of waiting before permitting the procedure. Primates visually seek out others and are reinforced and identify with others. This is why this will work. Appeal to the better angels of human nature rather than worst also underlies this principle.
People, and especially potential mothers, basically believe they are removing jello from their womb. This is a good first step and one that would likely work. it is also consistent with "Casey" SCOTUS decision.
It cannot work, if you demonize anyone who differs with your opinion; they may be your allies in gradually reducing the number of abortions. Immediately criminalizing 1,000,000 women a year (approx no abortions) is not going to happen in Congress or SCOTUS. Other than discharging emotion, trying to achieve this criminalization has no real workable goal.
Sorry, I don't take orders from folks who don't know when to capitalize or use punctuation.
If doing everything one can to keep Hillary from being president is not voting one’s conscience I don’t know what is.
It is paramount for a Nation to have values worth defending......the sanctity of life is just such a pre-eminent value.
What kind of a democracy would Rooty be defending around the globe?
Rooty bills himself as the WOT candidate----yet he would preside over defending and promoting home-grown terrorism on the unborn.
In the last analysis, it is positively nauseating to contemplate Rooty ordering even one brave American soldier into battle to defend his belief in the public financing of government-sanctioned killing of unborn babies.
I don’t think it qualifies one for much of anything, and it never has.
Life is the standard of all value.
What a crock. How about Mayor Koch and Mayor Dinkins - are they qualified to be president just because they were mayors of NYC? Just being the mayor of New York doesn't even qualify any of them to be the manager of the Yankees. I keep hearing about all he did on 9-11 but all I remember is seeing him running around with a hankie over his mouth.
His candidacy is a joke. Thompson and Hunter are both far more qualified.
You can think what you want, reality says otherwise.
As far as I am concerned, Life is the only issue. That means NO RUDY!!!!
If you say so. But if Rudy is the nominee, we’ve already lost.
Show me where he said this? Or has suggested he would try and make abortions federal paid for again. I don't buy this whatsoever.
Rudy is more than ground zero. He appears right on taxes, WOT and Iraq to name a few......Though I don't like his pro-police state type opinions, nor his past positions on guns.
