I'm officially endorsing Newt Gingrich for President today.

I'm officially endorsing Newt Gingrich for president today. Was going to wait until after Florida, but see no reason to delay. We need Newt to win in South Carolina and Florida to stop any possible momentum building up for the establishment big government, statist, abortionist RINO!!

RomneyCare = ObamaCare = government tyranny!! Taxpayer funded abortion is as evil as evil can be!!

Newt is a pro-life Reagan Revolution conservative who led the Republican Revolution of the 90’s, taking the majority away from the democrats who had held it for 40 years. And as Speaker, cut the taxes, cut the government, cut the spending, cut the deficit, cut regulations, cut unemployment, brought the federal budget under control for four years running. And unlike Romney, actually blocked a socialist healthcare system from becoming law. And created a pro-growth, pro-free market, pro-jobs environment and extended the Reagan economy throughout the 90’s!! Newt is the ideal candidate to lead the Tea Party Revolution!!

Newt plans to go to a 15% personal flat tax after deductions and a 12.5% corporate tax and eliminate the capital gains taxes altogether. He wants to privatize social security and medicare and eliminate the payroll tax.

And he wants to neuter the EPA and the Fed. Repeal ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley. Fire all of the czars, dismantle the Marxist state and fire if not jail Bernanke. And send 185 federal socialist welfare programs back to the states and the people, and return education back to local control.

Newt will directly challenge the liberal activist judiciary and end the unconstitutional power grabs of our usurping black robed rulers.

He wants to restore the constitutional balance of powers between the three branches and restore states rights and individual rights. He wants to turn government control back to the states and local people as the founders set it up.

These are the kind of dramatic reductions in government that the tea party is demanding.

And he has the knowledge, experience, know how, fire in the belly, and the balls to get it done!!

In short, I believe he's exactly what we grassroots conservative tea party rebels are looking for. I think we can use some of Newt’s conservative revolutionary talents right now!!

As long as the conservatives remain split, the establishment RINO Romney will waltz in just like McLame in 2008 and he will lose to Obama just like McLame. It's time to build the Gingrich Coalition!!

FR is hereby officially in full open rebellion against the elite GOP establishment and the Marxist commiecrats!!

Go, tea party!! Go, Newt!!

We are the resistance!!

Damn the torpedoes, damn the RINOs, damn the exes!! Full speed ahead!!

Free Republic is and will remain a pro-life, pro-family, limited government, strong defense, grassroots conservative site!!

RINOs need not apply!!

Happy Newt Day!! Only 366 days until President Newt evicts Obama!!

I made my mind up a while ago. His intellect and facile delivery of his thoughts have always impressed me. So he’s not perfect...God uses imperfect people to get things done here on earth. I pray and beseech that He sees fit to breathe some life back into this nation with new leadership. You know, with someone who actually knows how to lead!

GO NEWT !!!

Vote for Newt if only for this thought “If Newt wins, for DC it will be like the Japanese people taking a vote inviting GODZILLA back to Tokyo, bad for Tokyo but a 4 year long pay per view event for the rest of us!”

No wonder DC establishment hates the very idea :)

VOTE NEWT...... Because you really do want to see DC burn !!!

You can help Newt out greatly if you will donate $25 to his campaign war chest

Its' fine to donate to Newt, but before you, let's all give some cash to FR and get rid of these beggen' banners.

Jim knows my feeling on the Free Loaders that hang out at FR, and every one can afford $ 10 a year, that's only 90 cents a month or three cents a day.

If you can't afford 3 cents a day, turn off your computer and save the electricity costs.

I was a Herman Cain supporter, then a Rick Santorum supporter. Unfortunately it appears that neither are going to be the nominee. I therefore am now a Newt supporter. IMO .. a vote for Mittens is a vote for Obamao. Lets all hope (against hope) that he is not Cained (Borked) by the LSM.

Here here!!! We must unify behind Newt and work to build grass roots support for him, especially in the battleground states. We must be prepared to counter the smear campaign now underway.

I love him in the debates. I don’t trust him. But my vote is in Ca so I probably wouldn’t get to vote for Santorum anyway. I respect your site and will stop my negative comments re Gingrich’s psychology if you so wish. I will vote Gingrich over Romney, to be sure. And of course over Obama. I can’t get excited about him, though.

Welcome aboard, Jim. I spent 2 weeks researching the declared candidates after Gov. Palin’s October 5 announcement that she was not going to run. I came to the conclusion that Newt was the Reagan conservative of the bunch. No, he’s not my first choice, but he is our best shot to defeat the Vichy GOP establishment that is pushing Romney in the primaries and to send the Alinsky radical packing in the general.

Have to agree, Jim. I wanted Sarah to run so badly, but I think Newt would be the only choice over Romney. Santorum needs to be more of a bulldog.

Do we have any data showing how much of an influence FReeps are upon things like this, or plans showing how best the issue can be FReeped. Of course to do anything, however little, is superior to doing nothing. But I sometimes wonder if FR is a proverbial herd of cats, especially with diehard Perry and Paul aficionados.

All that matters today is Jim Robinson and Rick Perry saying "I ENDORSE/TRUST/FORGIVE Newt!" which is how Christians tend to roll... :~)

THANK YOU, Jim, Texas (155 delegates) & Gov Perry! GO NEWT!!! Speaker Gingrich-led Republicans….the result: * Voting on each of the Contract with America items * Four consecutive balanced budgets * Over $400 billion of debt paid off * Major welfare reform accomplished * 11 million new jobs for America * Unemployment falling to under 4%.

I have always been impressed with the man, starting with his "Contract with America" back when that had liberals foaming at the mouth. I figured anyone that could enrage the rats like that had to have it wired up high and tight.

Palin comes close as well, but we do not have that choice, nor do we have Cain. Newt it is, 110%.

I decided that before you by a few hours. That is unbelievable. (JK) However, what is serious is that you are WAY smarter than I am. I do still like Santorum a lot but I am seriously hoping that he and Newt are talking right now about how to proceed. I would love Santorum to be the VP. I mean he would be able to run for President in 8 years. Newt I don’t think so because he will be somewhere in the ball park of 77 years old. Santorum is only 53 and has plenty of time.
