We've got some real challenges facing us. FR was established to fight against government corruption, overstepping and abuse and to fight for a return to the limited constitutional government envisioned and set forth by our founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and other founding documents.
One of the biggest cases of government corruption, overstepping and abuse that I know of is its disgraceful headlong slide into a socialist hell. Our founders never intended for abortion to be the law of the land. And they never intended the Supreme Court to be a legislative body. They never intended God or religion to be written out of public life. They never intended government to be used to deny God's existence or for government to be used to force sexual perversions onto our society or into our children's education curriculum. They never intend for government to disarm the people. They never intended for government to set up sanctuary cities for illegals. They never intended government to rule over the people and or to take their earnings or private property or to deprive them of their constitutional rights to free speech, free religion, private property, due process, etc. They never intended government to seize the private property of private citizens through draconian asset forfeiture laws or laws allowing government to take private property from lawful owners to give to developers. Or to seize wealth and redistribute it to others. Or to provide government forced health insurance or government forced retirement systems.
All of the above are examples of ever expanding socialism and tyranny brought to us by liberals/liberalism.
FR fights against the liberals/Democrats in all of these areas and always will. Now if liberalism infiltrates into the Republican party and Republicans start promoting all this socialist garbage, do you think that I or FR will suddenly stop fighting against it? Do you think I'm going to bow down and accept abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, global warming, illegal alien lawbreakers, gun control, asset forfeiture, socialism, tyranny, totalitarianism, etc, etc, etc, just so some fancy Massachusetts liberal can become president from the Republican party?
Do you really expect me to do that?
No, and I hope this thread goes 20,000 posts.
Mitt of this election is like Rudy of the last. He is the one all the talking heads expected to be a shoe-in, he raised all the money, and was ahead in all the polls- BUT, when it came down to votes, he couldn’t carry any states, voters just didn’t trust him.
This time four years ago, we were told we would have seen a Hillary vs. Rudy race and no one else stood a chance.
We didn’t before and we won’t again.
Sounds like something Jim Robinson would write.
I approve of that. ;-)
Here is another.
What he said....
Well I would hope that after the Schwarzenegger fiasco people on here will have learned their lesson about “making a deal with the Devil”
As much as I detest 0bama, if Romney is running against him, I might forget to vote...
No, nor do I expect you to allow the Democrats to choose our candidate! They want Mitt, they can run him as a Dem!
just imagine what Romney could get us !
If you do, I'm out of here ... and from the sound of it, I'll take one of the people I truly respect, Mr. Jim Thompson, with me.
Do not vote, vote the the lesser or two evils, create a third option with possibly not a chance? I dunno, and I hate the way the media is trying to push things in the way they want, as always. They did that all too well with McQueeg, and that got us nowhere.
A lot of us thought the MSM hold on the news cycle had been broken, and the truth about candidates would now be possible. Tragically, it looks like the same old sh!t sandwich is about to be served up once again.............
I expect you to continue to fight such things, Jim.
What concerns me is that a major chunk of the GOP has always deceptively, slickly, RINO-ly sabotaged our shared conservative values right and left—particularly at key points and key moments.
Rockefeller was not the first or only one. McChurian will not be the last.
I’m a bit concerned that you may not realize how insidiously pervasive such evils have soaked into the GOP.
In most respects, they have increasingly behaved as merely the good cop of a good-cop/bad-cop con game.
It seems to me that FR needs to have some alternative strategies or at least not be caught with our drawers down—totally shocked and unprepared—if—as seems HIGHLY likely—the top two political parties will YET AGAIN hand us the worst and 2nd worst of two weasels.
Or more troubling . . . what if the GOP hands us a RINO in Conservative white-wash? How would we know until too late?
Michelle Obama 2016- In a Bikini....
So for God's sake, don't run Romney!!!!!
I can’t speak for FR, but as for me, NO!
