Fred HAS to win the Republican nomination!!! Here's why:
Even with limited funds, Fred can still prevail. And the contributions will greatly increase with a clear and firm statement that he will continue through the convention. Many of the voters fear wasting their votes and money on someone who will give up before the 'fat lady sings'.
Give them what they want - a firm commitment - and the votes and money will come in like a tidal wave. Do not acknowledge any possibility of loss. Be resolute and absolutely believe that Fred will win, and convey that commitment to the people. Fred needs to have and make this commitment, and so does his staff. The MSM has too many times alleged that senior staffers have hinted of his dropping out.
The Cluetrain Manifesto
(just substitute Political Party whereever it reads Company)
"I'd like to see a thread/sign up list, for FRedheads (only) to commit to hanging' tough with FRed."
I'll second that motion. All in favor, say Aye. Motion carried.
I checked my lists and he's not listed as a FRedHead pingee. I realize many Fred supporters are not on the ping list, so that doesn't mean much. But I don't recognize him as a committed Fred supporter. Nominal maybe.
It says a great deal- about Delaware!
The Red Truck ticker is down because it was for SC.
But keep swinging as if you know what you are talking about, it is entertaining...
"well ok he can be President of all Americans but we get to cheer first for him."
We already are, heheh.
Rasmussen is a mirror site for Intrade. When I was posting Intrade data about Fred, it was shouted down. But the data was still valid. At 0.4% it suggests that Fred’s a bargain, as long as he doesn’t drop out. He could be up to 4% in a matter of days, yielding a 10X return — not bad. His dropout contract leads the pack at 85% for January, 95% for February. So it is a dicey proposition, but putting your money where your mouth is for your candidate can earn you money if you’re right. Good luck with that.
He threw his hat in, at our request. He gave up a lot to serve our Country. He LOVES this Country. He is an outstanding Conservative.
FRED DESERVES OUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!
Get 'er Done, FRed!
Our Country is dead without FRed!
You’re right. Why aren’t the Fredheads pumping money into intrade? The only thing that cost them money would be if Fred Drops out. Come to think of it. Why doesn’t Fred’s campaign put their funds in before they announce they’re sticking it out and double their money?
I'll give you that.
If it makes you feel any better, Perot took more Democrats like me away from the Party then got Republicans like you.to vote for him.
Do you think any of Rudy's supporters are saying what you're saying about the candidate you CLAIM to have supported? I don't think Rudy has ANY candidates yet, does he? Why are there no calls for him to drop out, after all, he hasn't won ANY states yet, just like Fred.
I have been working to elect a Republican governor here. And no, I was not circulating petitions while Fred was wasting time with his "shadow candidacy." How many petitions did I sign? Every single one of them that was available to me as a Republican committeeman. How many do you suppose that was?
You guessed it.
Fred is truly conservative, and he is truly a good man. He just did not run a truly credible campaign.
Fred's comments about the 'line in the sand' had to do with whether or not voters were going to draw the line at conservatism or move to a more moderate/liberal stance. Seems he was right to be concerned.
I am beginning to really believe that the PTB are rigging elections......Fred IS the number one candidate of them all, and to think on the Rat side, we got a guy who won’t even say the pledge of allegiance.
Only the "Fill up the Red Truck" graphic is gone. The Contribution link is still there.
We’d rather our money went straight to Fred.
There is so much important, relevant, and insightful, information to quote and point out in your post, that it would be almost duplicating it. It’s that good.
So many, even here, are willing to forget why we are here, what brought us here, and what we have in common. It is not “the acquisition and maintenance of political power, at any cost”. It is our Constitutional and Conservative beliefs.
Yet they settle. They justify. They reduce us all.
I’m with FRed till FRed decides otherwise. Even then, I’ll be with the principles he stands for. I will encourage others to do likewise. I will not, ever again, allow my vote to say...”I’m holding my nose for the party”.
Get ‘er Done, FRed!
Just as I thought....
Ummm ... jellybean, ... I've tried that out with my wife and it's not working all that great. What should I do now?
He IS expected to visit Florida. The illness of his mother has resulted in his going home to TN to visit her in the hospital. The last I heard was that he was expected in Florida on Tuesday. This may be outdated information; I have not heard anything to the contrary. REC meeting is on tomorrow night and perhaps I will find out more details then.
Hubby and I did the early voting on Saturday. Fred got two votes in Jacksonville, Florida.
I am also doing phone calls to chase any absentee ballots. I have done part of Duval county and am half way through Clay county.
I certainly am not giving up; no matter how many people hang up on me or cuss me out. I am still going to chase down those absentee ballots still uncast. There are still people out there that are undecided or who have just forgotten to send those ballots in.
GO FRED GO!!!
Tell her she's the most fascinating creature you've ever met and your life would be nothing without her! Then do what Winston Churchill did...go smoke a cigar and have a glass of brandy. :D
“Im tired of hearing who Thompson hurts if he stays in...”
Who cares who he hurts? What you should care about is who he’s helping.
I think Fred is hurting himself by staying in too long. He reminds me of a boxer that just hates to hang up the gloves.
I was a Tancredo supporter and I think he did us all a favor by being realistic about his chances. He moved the illegal alien debate to the forefront of national politics and when he saw he could not win he threw his support where he thought it would do the most good. Tancredo is a classy guy and a true patriot.
Nothing would RINO’s happier.
Duncan Hunter has officially dropped out today. Fred Thompson, who staked his ground in South Carolina but ended up way short of Huckabee and a distant third, is a press release away from the same. The pundits are casting aspersions on Rudy Guilianis lifeless corpse of a campaign, which has shown no sign of life in the first 6 primaries; Florida is make-or-break for him; even Ron Paul has won more votes than Rudy. The media is unofficially calling Huckabee dead, as he was unable to parlay his Iowa win into anything but 2nd and 3rd place showings since, including the most evangelical state in the nation, South Carolina. His runner-up speech was defiant in his promise to his flock to keep on marching, but where will he win?
So it is down to Romney v McCain for the nomination. McCain is the favorite. The rest of the candidates have no hope of gaining the nomination at this time.
“I agree, Fred needs to soldier on.”
OK. So he peels off 10% of the conservative vote, and McCain runs up wins in all the WTA states with independents and moderates and conservatives split Huck, Fred, Romney ...
What thank you does McCain give Thompson for that?
I think Huckabee is the stalking horse for McCain and he is holding Conservatives who want to vote for Fred [the real conservative] hostage by making them feel guilty if they don’t vote for “the nice talking pastor guy” so that McCain will get the nomination. Fortunately, I think his followers will realize soon that their faith and faith in Huckabee are not and should not be related.
I hope they see through him soon enough to knock him out!
