Great list, Jim.
EVERY primary voter should’ve had a copy of it to review BEFORE casting a vote.
Appreciate you compiling this.
I can put to use-—at least, I hope so. I have conservative friends who don’t want to hear the truth about Romney. I’m not telling them not to vote for him; they have to make that decision themselves. But I’d think folks would want to be informed about the person they vote for.
Haha! This is great!
There ya go. Seems a simple decision to me.
Thanks, copied, printed, will give to party official.
JLA, with all due respect, is there a reason you put triple exclamation points behind every sentence? Your posts would carry more weight if you didn’t. Just my opinion.
That’s why I’m not voting GOP this time around. I never had a chance to cast a vote for Gingrich here in VA, and just can’t bring myself to score one for Romney. This, unless some miracle of miracles happens and Romney gets kidnapped by aliens and Newt gets the nomination by default.
Otherwise, it’s the Constitution Party for me.
My initial reaction to Newt was knee jerk like many others due to his so-called baggage. But after our conservatives began dropping out, I took a fresh look at Newt, his record as a Reagan Revolutionary fighter and conservative leader of the house with many great conservative ACCOMPLISHMENTS, then studied his website and his vision for restoring constitutional government and restoring our Liberty and wished I’d done that review earlier.
He’s the only one who recognizes that to save America we must literally GUT the unconstitutional federal behemoth!! And he wants to do exactly that. GUT it!! Return the power to the states and the people!!
The libs and RINOS tremble in fear and so Newt must be destroyed!!
Romney admitted the other day that he has no interest in drastically cutting the government or taming the beast or drastically cutting our taxes. Just wants to cut the borrowing. Says government should only spend what it brings in (and presumably all of that). No mention of cutting it down to size. No mention of cutting spending down to only those items enumerated in the constitution. No mention of defending our rights or the constitution. Romney has a nasty habit of not cutting spending, not cutting government, but raising “revenues” to cover instead. He’s a “read my lips” kind of guy.
“If you’re urging people to boycott Republicans downticket then you’re an Obama agenda enabler!”
I’ve been watching this shouting match between you and Jim. And before you get the zot, can you please post to exactly where Jim (or anyone else) is advocating a boycott of Repubs downticket?
I sense we conservatives have already lost the general. I’m coming to terms with that. And I’m even relishing the idea of a lame duck Obama. Better a lame duck Obama than Romney with his ideas of socialism polluting the Republican Party.
But in any event; Now is the time to begin focusing on House and Senate races and targeting true TEA Party candidates. I am looking forward to having a strong House and Senate presence even if there is no one in the Hite House that is strong on conservative values.
Pretty ironic. Every one of your posts conjures up a vision of someone jumping up and down and screaming like a lunatic, hair standing on end like your stuck your finger in a wall socket.
He dropped out and endorsed Newt;^)
Did the GOP dump Myth yet?
How to get this to the masses?? Will tweet it myself. People should all tweet and facebook this list.
If only all the people I know who think mitt would be great for the economy could see this! It’s amazing.
(with newt foaming over the abuelitas, I still see him as pro amnesty — only quibble I have with it)
Where the hell have you been? I've been urging people to turnout as never before to vote straight conservative DOWN TICKET!! Long live the tea party rebellion!!
Unfortunately, too many have convinced themselves that Romney is better than Obama and are still going to vote for him.
JimRob’s list is brilliant for anyone who dares think Romney is CONSERVSTIVE or even REPUBLICAN. Romney is a Democrat. However, Romney is American and is not working for foreign enemies. So he is better than Obama in that respect.
Now we will see who the fakers are.
Nobody ever said Mitsy was conservative, just more conservative than Obama
I don’t see how anybody would not vote for Newt if they had seen Newt at ORU. He’s the only candidate with a reasonable plan to reverse America’s decline into communism and rebuild free market capitalism. Some FReepers would throw America’s future away because he sat on a sofa with Nancy the Nazi, incredible!
FReepers like you are growing very tedious, and tiresome.
This ugly primary that Romney's trying to buy is not yet over, despite the rhetoric the lamestream and pundity are trying to sell to you surrender monkeys and "go-along-Grand Old Party-Firster's," citing Reagan's Rule, that Reagan didn't write!
I'll cite Sarah Palin to you: "Buck-up or get out of the truck!"
Newt Gingrich remains in this primary fight to the convention and for all the right reasons, --- he 's offering real solutions to our real problems and he's the anti-obama! Newt said he was all in to the convention from the day he entered the race, and whadda ya know? He's the final conservative standing! Our best warrior!
The liar, liberal abortionist from Massachusetts doesn't have his 1144 delegates and he can still be stopped, but not with a bunch of shameful whiners already conceding to Romney.
Put your trust in Him. Support Newt Gingrich. Pray and support your fellow TEA Party conservatives and FReepers in our fight FOR Life, Liberty, Constitution, Family, God and Country.
The same place as his campaign.
