Makes me wonder how the tally would be like in Mississippi had it merely been :

Gingrich, Romney, Paul

or

Santorum, Romney , Paul

One thing is certain — ROMNEY ISN’T SELLING WELL IN THE SOUTH.

Just more evidence that Gingrich should withdraw and hand it over to Rick.

Work for Gingrich!

He needs to withstand the news of Santorum winning in Kansas, Saturday.

One candidate wants to solve our problems and rescue American Sovereignty.

Another candidate seems entitled.

A third seems to want to enact Vatican dicta in America.

You know, I thought Conservatives had a high opinion of Christian values.

Then one stands up and runs for the presidency, and folks all of a sudden take offense because he espouses their beliefs in public.

What’s wrong with espousing the belief that abortion is wrong, and that less promiscuity before marriage is a good thing?

This post in objection to Santorum’s values, is that what you wish to rest your hat on.

Is this an admission that Balut doesn’t back these values? What the heck?

rollwage and I were at Newt’s rally in Southaven, Ms. last night at the Landers Civic Center, good crowd despite the inclement weather, compleatly filled the room. A very “Cheerful and enthusiastic crowd. Callista was introduced by State Rep. Wanda Jennings (R) and Callista introduced Newt. Newt delivered an excellant speech and again cut right to the problems and offered well thought out workable, common sense solutions and saved his attacks for obama and his corrupt administration. I believe Newt will carry Mississippi.

Newt will win the South convincingly but WE NEED TO GET ROMNEY% DOWN TO 20% AS HE WILL WRAP UP MANY WINNER-TAKE-ALL LIBERAL EASTERN STATES after April 1st unless Newtmomentum build up from now to April 1st ( very possible.)

And we cannot bad-mouth on Santorum as he is on our side, very conservative republican and very decent Christian. We need Santorum to win as many votes as possible. Combining force we can defeat Romney and go on to defeat Obama.

I always believe in brokered convention with Newt delivering thundering Lincoln-styled speeches! The elites are getting nervous, just listen to them and MSM crying for Newt to quit! They are dreaming, we are having fun!

Newt is genius, the elites play right into his hand.

There is a huge difference between our founders’ vision of a Christ-informed populace participating in self governance and a policy of trying to run the entire (federalist) nation from Washington DC, to obey the dictates of a city-state located on a boot-shaped peninsula of Europe.

Newt Gingrich is pro-life and pro-marriage. So is Santorum. Gingrich wants to aggressively defend America from Agenda 21, plus audit The Fed and act upon what information is attained. Santorum is wobbly on this and is a ‘team player.’ Which is more moral?

Quit spreading this lie. You sound like a liberal democrat.

What you want people to believe is that despite the results of the state, you think unpledged/soft delegates will go AGAINST the will of the people in that state and support the guy who finished DEAD LAST?

Keep dreaming. Santorum leads Gingrich in delegates and you know it. Spinning it the way you are is a liberal tactic.

From his website, Newt plans to:

1. Stop the 2013 tax increases to promote stability in the economy. Job creation improved after Congress extended tax relief for two years in December. We should make the rates permanent.

2. Make the United States the most desirable location for new business investment through a bold series of tax cuts, including:
Eliminating the capital gains tax to make American entrepreneurs more competitive against those in other countries; Dramatically reducing the corporate income tax (among highest in the world) to 12.5%; Allowing for 100% expensing of new equipment to spur innovation and American manufacturing;
Ending the death tax permanently.

3. Move toward an optional flat tax of 15% that would allow Americans the freedom to choose to file their taxes on a postcard, saving hundreds of billions in unnecessary costs each year. This optional flat tax system will preserve deductions on charitable giving and home ownership, and create a new personal deduction of $12,000 for every American. This deduction is well above the current poverty level, ensuring that this new system does not unfairly target the poor.

4. Strengthen the dollar by returning to the Reagan-era monetary policies that stopped runaway inflation and reforming the Federal Reserve to promote transparency.

5. Remove obstacles to job creation imposed by destructive and ineffective regulations, programs and bureaucracies. Steps include: Repealing the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which did nothing to prevent the financial crisis and is holding companies back from making new investments in the U.S;
Repealing the Community Reinvestment Act, the abuse of which helped cause the financial crisis;
Repealing the Dodd-Frank Law which is killing small independent banks, crippling loans to small businesses and crippling home sales;
Breaking up Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, moving their smaller successors off government guarantees and into the free market;
Replacing the Environmental Protection Agency with an Environmental Solutions Agency that works collaboratively with local government and industry to achieve better results;
and Modernizing the Food and Drug Administration to get lifesaving medicines and technologies to patients faster.

6. Implement an American energy policy that removes obstacles to responsible energy development and creates jobs in the United States.

7. Balance the budget by growing the economy, controlling spending, implementing money saving reforms, and replacing destructive policies and regulatory agencies with new approaches.

8. Repeal and replace Obamacare with a pro-jobs, pro-responsibility health plan that puts doctors and patients in charge of health decisions instead of bureaucrats.

9. Fundamental reform of entitlement programs with the advice and help of the American people. Read an extended white paper on this here:

“you think unpledged/soft delegates will go AGAINST the will of the people in that state”

It isnt the will of anyone. They are “unpledged/soft delegates” for a reason. Maybe you ought to think about that rather than emotionally blow up at people...like what liberals do.

What you "know" just isn't so. Unpledged are unpledged for a reason. The only delegates that can truly be counted upon are the pledged ones.

Stop spreading lies for Santorum. Misinformation and outright lies seems to be what his supporters are best to cover up for him flailing around destroying his own 10 point leads against Romney and being too inept to actually collect delegates he's earned because of a lacking organization.

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil ... nothing is ever Santorum's fault.

Christian values are a big part of but not all that matters to me. Rick Santorum’s voting record on Socially Conservative issues is at best no better than Newt’s then there is the matter of “Fiscally Conservate” issues. Then there would be the ability to articulate what is needed to fix America and to clearly define issues and solutions and the difference in the socialist and Conservative principles and ideas. Newt will take the fight to obama ans will beat him. The difference is being in Presidential, not wanting to denigrate Rick but I’ve heard him described as an “over zealous hall monitor” and I belive that is how he will come across and be portrayed. Social Conservative issues are important to me but that is not all that’s on the table. We need an extrodinary individual for these times and I can’t think of any, anywhere better suited for the task ahead than Newt Gringrich whether they are in the race or not. Below are some of thr reasons I’m for Newt.

Newt Gingrich, an Extroidinary Man for These Extrodinary Times

Newt Gingrich is a Historian, he loves this country and understands our Constitution, our system of government and the sacrifices made by patriots to create it, and the importance of maintaining it. He knows how government works and how it should work. He is intelligent, educated, and has common sense. He has been in the public eye for thirty five years and has made public controversial decisions, he has cast over 7200 votes, made over 15,000 speeches, written twenty four books. His voting record has been consistantly “Conservative” whether you are speaking in terms of “Social”, “Fiscal” or anything else, Newt Gingrich is “THE CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE.” His original “Contract with America” led to CONSERVATIVE Republicans taking the US House of Representatives and appears to be the basis for the modern day Tea Party. Under his leadership as Speaker of the House the Republican Congress produced four consecutive balanced budgets, welfare reform, strengthened our national defense and intelligence. The CBO had forecast a deficet for ten years of 2.5 trillion dollars when he was elected Speaker and four years later the ten year forecast was for a surplus of 2.5 trillion dollars for a turnaround of 5 trillion dollars. They cut taxes and unemployment dropped to 4.2%. President Clinton talks of his administration having balanced budgets, surplus, and welfare reform, that’s true but it was thrust upon him by Newt and the Republican Congress. Spending and earmarks dropped as soon as Newt became Speaker and both remained low during his tenure as Speaker and skyrocketed as soon as he left the Speaker’s position. Those who didn’t want him keeping government spending under control, the Republican establishment, are the ones who are now attacking him and trying to stop his return to Washington. Republicans should be apologizing to Newt for squandering the bounty he brought to the country instead of attacking him. I believe this is Newt’s time. America is in trouble and needs an advocate, Newt Gingrich is that advocate.

This is encouraging news for Newt's campaign. I hope he can maintain and rack up a victory or two next Tuesday.

At this point the strategy is one of "keep away," of siphoning delegates away from Romney. Neither Newt or Santorum should get out. I believe the time where that would've been effective to outright beat Romney is over.

Newt is by far the most important voice in this race.

Newt was closing fast in Tenn in the last couple of days. Check the exit polls.

Had it not been for all the Early voting I am convinced Newt would have won Tennessee.

He is doing what he need to do. Pounding the streets in MS and AL with his message of smaller government and his energy policy.

Lord give him Strength and Courage to complete his journey.

There is a huge difference between our founders’ vision of a Christ-informed populace participating in self governance and a policy of trying to run the entire (federalist) nation from Washington DC, to obey the dictates of a city-state located on a boot-shaped peninsula of Europe.  Thank you.  I accept that you believe this.  I don't buy into 0.000000001% of it.  Sorry.  No sale.  I file stuff like this in my flying saucer sighting file.

http://gulagbound.com/27042/post-supertuesday-song-for-americans-fighting-for-our-sovereignty/comment-page-1/#comment-151491  Okay, a poster on another forum has an over-active imagination.  I'm just not into buying off on stuff like this.  This guy is not going to turn the U. S. Government into Vatican City West.

Newt Gingrich is pro-life..., Okay, good...  So is someone else.., ah what's his name?  Oh yes, Rick Santorum.  Unlike Newt, Rick also urges less promiscuity outside of marriage.

...and pro-marriage.  Puuuulease...

So is Santorum.  Yes, but thank heaven he's not as pro-marriage as Balut.

Gingrich wants to aggressively defend America from Agenda 21,...  Balut sits on benches with Leftists expounding on fixes to Global Warming, which he wants desperately to help with.  NO!!!!

...plus audit The Fed and act upon what information is attained.  Okay, maybe...  He has promised so many things, that it has finally become nearly impossible, even impractical, and ultimately unbelievable to think he's going to actually follow through with much of any of it.  It has become almost laughable every new promise he comes up with.  If he actually did it all, I'd be quite thrilled, but I'm simply not that gullible.

My idea of realistic campaign promises, generally come in a short list of important core issues.  You quite naturally know the guy is on your side, because his core list of issues actually translate beyond the list.  When a guy starts being specific with ten, twenty, thirty, forty... ideas, I begin to lose any confidence in the guy.  It's as if he thought that by promising to fix my kitchen sink drain leak, he'd get my vote.  He can't spend the time to do that for all of us either, and it reduces my belief that he means any of it.

Santorum is wobbly on this and is a ‘team player.’  I'm sorry, but you've been sipping a little too much of Balut's campaign tea.  I don't buy into this.

Which is more moral?
  Don't get me started on Balut's morals.   I am not a subscriber to that rhetoric.  Do you have any idea of the immorality involved with global warming fixes?  And if the guy was gullible enough to buy into that nonsense only a few months ago, how is he not 'a gullible global team player', and ultimately the poster boy for what you seek to speak out against?  If this guy could buy off on Global Warming and the disasterous fixes the Left had dreamed up, what wouldn't he buy into?  I'm sorry, but that whole bench episode was a game ending buzz-kill for me.

You are smarter than this.  I know you are.

This news makes me day so much I can hardly describe it!!

May plan to squeeze in a few calls over the weekend and going into Tuesday.

The only ones to lose out in a Newt presidency would be the squirmin’ worms here in DC.

I wish I could show you all the Mcmansions that have sprouted up here over the past 8 years or so ... this is RINO/LIB ELITE central. So many are benefiting from the status quo, and in BIG ways ...meanwhile, the rest of the country suffers.

Newt would come in and equalize all that ...that’s why they want him out. Hold strong, Americans ...

GO NEWT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you, Doughty One.

This stuff by unspun does not represent Newt Gingrich's views, as have been repeatedly stated, about the Judeo-Christian moral basis of society.

Gingrich is not being helped by the actions of a fair number of his supporters here on Free Republic.

This is wild-eyed stuff from the 1960 anti-Catholic campaign against John F. Kennedy.

If we've learned anything in fifty years, we've learned that the Roman Catholic Church is having enough problems getting their own members to obey the Pope. He has enough problems trying to get Catholics to “obey dictates of a city-state” without trying to get the civil government of a predominantly Protestant country to do so.

Please cite an example.

I don't see Rick Santorum trying to “enact Vactican dicta” on anything other than abortion. On that issue, I trust you agree with Santorum. Gingrich agrees with “Vatican dicta” on being pro-life, so does Ron Paul, and even Mitt Romney claims to agree (though I don't trust him).

Perhaps you mean contraception? Santorum doesn't want to make contraception illegal; at most, he wants to persuade other people it's a bad idea. What he does with his wife in his own bedroom is his own business and if he wants a large family, it's not my business to tell him otherwise.

As an evangelical Protestant, if I thought Rick Santorum was trying to “enact Vatican dicta” on things other than issues on which most conservative Christians agree, I would have a huge problem with Santorum.

What Santorum does in his own personal life with “Vatican dicta” is his own business and I have no problem with him being faithful to the dictates of his church so long as he doesn't try to legally enact them on everyone else.

Keep an eye on the GOP Boss Hogg types. Watch ‘em close.

I heard a Bishop Willard ad today for the first time in Mississippi, and it was all anti Newt.

She is not spreading lies.

Some of you Pro Santorum supporters need to do some research once in a while. Its all over the web in fact yea go to CNN. CNN is calling it an ESTIMATE.

We have explained Hard Delegates vs Soft Delegates day after day. But some of you Anti Newt keep calling us liars and now Liberals.

I pick Newt! (If he's good enough for Sarah Palin then he's good enough for me)

When it comes right down to it, Gingrich and Santorum have both spoken quite kindly of each other. Most of the animosity comes from the superpacs and supporters.

While saying that he would consider Gingrich as a VP choice, Rick Santorum calls Gingrich a true conservative who fits the bill.

How many unpledged delegates have defected in previous primaries or what is their percentage?
