NEVER GIVE UP!  NEVER GIVE UP!  NEVER GIVE UP! 
self

Posted on 01/20/2008 7:04:57 PM PST by RebelTex

Don't let Fred quit.  

Fred HAS to win the Republican nomination!!!  Here's why:

  1. Our country has never faced greater peril than now.  Islam seek our destruction and the establishment of a world-wide caliphate.  Illegal aliens have invaded who threaten the rule of law and are continuing to do so.  Socialists are destroying the moral fabric and character of our country by advocating government control over every aspect of our lives.  Communism has resurfaced to threaten  Judeo-Christian values and promote atheism and mediocrity and the undermining of our economy.  We are under unprecedented physical, spiritual, moral, and financial attack by our enemies.
  2. Our country, as leader of the free world and a bastion of freedom, can not long survive if a Democrat or RINO is elected President in this election cycle.
  3. All of the other remaining candidates are RINOs and no Rino can win the general election this time.   Even if a RINO could win, the end results would be the same.
  4. The nomination of a RINO will destroy the Republican party for at least 20 years, if our country manages to survive that long. 
  5. Without a strong and true conservative to lead us, our country will not be able to withstand all the threats we are facing.
I realize that the odds are stacked against winning, but not insurmountable.  The RNC primary rules penalize the early primary states, and Fred has a devoted base in almost all the later primary states as well as most all of the Southern and Midwest states.  The egos of the RINOs will not allow them to drop out, resulting in a fractured and split result for the convention.  None of the delegates will support one of the other RINOs in a brokered convention, but they will support a true conservative. 

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.

 
NEVER GIVE UP!  NEVER GIVE UP!  NEVER GIVE UP!

“Fred could not even gather enough signatures to get on the ballot here. Maybe that says something.”

Entirely false. His team got 500 signatures. But, it turned out his team was unaware that all 500 signatures had to be from registered Republicans, the rules didn’t permit independent signatures. It’s not that he couldn’t get the signatures (you should know that’s utterly ridiculous, I’m sure we have 500 -freepers- from DE alone who’d sign for Fred), it’s that his team didn’t know about some technicality in terms of who was eligible for signing. You can bitch about that mistake by his DE team, but don’t try to misrepresent it as indicative of his lack of support there or anywhere else. Sheesh.

Yes, needs to be repeated. The MSM and trolls have some sort of psy-op going trying to discourage Fred supporters by saying he'll quit. He could overcome this with a firm statement of his intention to stay in it. And he MUST stay in for all the reasons listed here.

then he is motivated by ego not the best interests of the country.

All Thompson can do is play spoiler and make the fracturing of the GOP a reality. If he gets out now, there may be time to heal the damage done. Maybe, folks like you will get over your mania and eventually come back to reality. However, the longer Thompson drags it out, the more damage he does.

You're drinking the koolaid!

IMO, what you say fits everybody BUT Thompson!

McCain or Huckster? LOL!!! They're embarrassments!

When Fred drops out Romney will benefit the most.

No he doesn't.

Nominating a person (assuming that were possible) who represents 15% of your own voters and zero percent of the rest is idiotic.

It's not a psyop to be discouraged when 85% of the Republican voters in an extremely conservative state vote for somebody else.

It's reality.

Guliani hasn't won ANY states yet, just like Fred

If he comes in 3rd there, hes done. I just want to stop McCain. Fred drew the line in the sand in SC, not me. If he wants to stay in , with little money, and hope for a brokered convention, then so be it.

The stupid FOX news poll asking if FRED should drop out is still running, so people need to vote early and often today. Guess it’s not their “question of the day” but their “question of the week” and they’ll keep polling until they get the answer they want.

You are making my point. Of course, if he had an effective, credible organization, he could have gotten enough Republican signatures. But he did not. That is the point. He ran an ineffective campaign. Who is to blame for that, the media?

P.S. I doubt that we have 500 Freepers in DE. Unfortunately, we are a microscopic patch of "Bidon blue."

Personally, I put the life and marriage issues first. But the only way to protect them is to protect our Constitution, IMHO. Fred seems to see that, too. He is both pro-life and pro-Constitution.

The Constitution and its preamble speak of an “inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” And the details of the Constitution lay out the best way to preserve those rights, given human nature and its flaws.

Right to life means right to self-defense, and that means the Second Amendment. And so forth. It all hangs together.

Seems you also misunderstood Fred's 'line in the sand' comment. It wasn't about HIM staying in the race. All he ever said about his part in the race was that it was their hope and expectation that he would do well. His comment had to do with whether or not the Republicans would draw a line in the sand to hold back liberalism in the party. Seems he was right to be concerned

I agree ImpBill. For these and other reasons, I have come to the same conclusion. It is nice to know others out there are thinking in these terms.

I don’t say this lightly, becuase I recognize this as a measure of last resort. If I couldn’t look back and realize what has taken place over the last 40 years, I wouldn’t be able to say what I am today.

What we have been doing, voting for RINOs, hasn’t been working. We are working together with the democrats to move this nation away from our founding principles. It has to end. For me it ends here.

They can take this nation down if they wish, but I’ll be no part of it.

Of course you are suggesting that Romney, Rudy, and Huckaboob should withdraw and stop splitting the Thompson vote. Right? After all, none of them have enough delegates to win the nomination.

Oh, neither does McCain...you think maybe this is what the “primary season” - which now runs for 4 years before the election - is about, isn’t it? Allowing Republicans to select the best man for the job, and then nominate him? Oops, no. I forgot, primary season is when we ask the MSM and other left-wing groups to chose who will be the easiest candidate to defeat, who will turn as many Conservatives away from the party as possible.

Well, stop listening to news from leftist news media and opponents who fear having a consistent conservative in the race.

When nearly 1200 votes are needed for the nomination, and no one is anywhere close (no one has close to 200), why would anyone think of withdrawing? FRed campaigns in person, meeting the voters, instead of doing 30 second sound bytes on the tele. Media hates being bypassed, so that’s just another reason for them to hate him.

Listen to the candidate, not his opponents. Listen to the conservatives, not the liberals.

STAND STRONG.

After working closeley on the regulatory issues of the American rural West for more than 15 years, I can authoritatively say that our culture and economy is on the ropes and sliding into extinction. We will not survive the return of another strong central regulatory administrative hammer like in the days of Bill Clinton. I look at who is running and I see only Fred Thompson stands for the Reagan tradition of limited government and local control. No Hillary, no Obama, no Gulliani, no McCain, no Huckabee ( and Romneys record shows) no Mitt will keep the hollowing out of America from happening. If Fred’s ship goes down, then I am afraid, the rural West will go with him.

Seemed fairly clear to me that he was talking about his role in the election.

http://www.fred08.com/NewsRoom/InTheNews.aspx?ID=56c0b0af-e3d6-441c-b110-c804c5ed63f1

“I noticed that they had a little election in Iowa and they had a little election in New Hampshire, and I’m drawing a line in the sand in South Carolina,” said Thompson, fighting a sore throat. “We had a different winner in each one of those places and we’re going to have a different winner in this one.”

http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2008/jan/17/sc-or-else-for-thompson/

“I’ve got to do very well here,” Thompson said. “I don’t think that’s any secret. And I’m just acknowledging the obvious.”
