Is Palinís lead a pitfall for the pro-life cause? - ALAN KEYES
Loyal to Liberty ^ | November 27, 2009 | Alan Keyes

Posted on 11/27/2009 7:18:55 AM PST by EternalVigilance

 
I was not at all surprised to hear that Rudy Giuliani has lately expressed views that welcome the rising prominence of Sarah Palin in the GOP. Giuliani is the archetype of the politicians who wear the Republican label but staunchly support the pro-abortion agenda. Of course, he imitates the pro-abortion Democrats by using the "pro-choice" label to dress his position in deceptively American garb. The use of that term is one of the most clever rhetorical ploys in the history of American politics. If the slaveholders had thought of it, people like me might still be doing stoop labor for no wages. After all, what could be more American than choice? Isn't that what freedom is all about?

Actually, no; not in the sense of the political liberty the American people have up to now enjoyed. Our liberty is based on the idea of unalienable rights articulated to justify our nation's assertion of independence from Great Britain. "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

Take your 16 votes and go sit in the corner.

Palin’s got a job to do, cleaning out the Socialist Augean Stables of America, and she doesn’t need your piddly pip-squeak help.

You retard.

Alan Keyes is like a stale fart that won’t leave the room.

Alan Keyes is backing independent runs against solid conservative Republicans.

Keyes can be a great speaker, at times -—

But he is also an egomaniac with HORRIBLE political instincts.

Barack Obama is the luckiest politician in recent American history.

His only two opponents in his short political career have been Alan Keyes and John McCain.

Keyes will be challenging Bill O’Reilly as the World Bloviation Champion. He just liked the sound of his own voice, and pretending to be smart.

So Rudy says nice things about Palin, thus she is damned in Keyes’ eyes? It would be interesting to see if Rudy said similar things about Keyes; would he hold himself to the same judgment?

Alan Keyes at one time had the potential to be a thoughtful spokesman for the conservative movement. Unfortunately, he morphed into a certified wack-a-do who comes across as silly, spiteful and unhinged. Now, the only people who take him seriously are likewise silly, spiteful and unhinged.

OUTSTANDING article, links in the article, and comments at those links. Thank you Alan Keyes.

Go Sarah!

Keyes has even less credibility on political positioning and strategy than most of our hapless Republican ‘consultants’ do.

Apparently you didn't read to the end of the article.

Keyes' beef with Palin is her pro-choice for states position on abortion.

A beef I have as well.

This point is crucial and foundational.

Wow. Straight from the Saul Alinsky playbook.

And very, very few in number. He makes Ron Paul look like a landslide-winner.

“Falsified States Rights” position? I know Mr. Keyes is a pretty learned man, but I don’t believe it’s a falsified states rights issue. Maybe if he chose to meet and speak with Sarah Palin first, before trashing her in an “opinion piece”, I’ll bet it would become crystal clear to him that she is staunchly pro-life.

C’mon, Mr. Keyes, would she really put the pro-life cause on the road to destruction? 40+ million unborn children killed, and Sarah Palin gets targeted for putting the cause on the road to destruction? You’re better than this, sir!

Maybe you should go back and read what Dr. Keyes had to say before going over the cliff. I have probably disagreed with Dr. Keyes as much as anyone on here. That said, there is one thing about Dr. Keyes that stands out is the fact he NEVER wavers from what he believes, isn’t afraid to speak out and will stand up for his beliefs no matter what. More importantly then that, is that I will stand for the right of Dr. Keyes to state his opinion and for EV to post that opinion.

You can disagree with someone without getting nasty and calling names.

Once again Dr. Keyes has written an article that tells it like it is and once again a Palin supporter comes along and disses the author. Do you all realize that by attacking anyone that dares to say something about Palin that doesn’t meet your standards, that you are sounding like the opposition in the last election? We must not question anything. It is also starting to drive people to look at alternatives. Blind allegiance is not good because it means you quit thinking.

EV — If you are not in the Palin camp, guess you shouldn’t post on here. (sarcasm) Seriously, that is what it is beginning to look like, yet we are so far out from the 2012 election that a lot can change. There are more important things going on in DC but are getting drowned out. The 2010 election is coming up, yet so many people on here want to jump to 2012.
