Jim Robinson shows Newt is a pretty good fit to the Tea Party values: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2818986/posts?page=38#38
You could start your education with the above, if you were sincerely seeking information about topics you show ignorance or deception over.
I remember having that exact argument with Freepers who thought it perfectly fine to vote for Joe Lieberman in Connecticut a few years ago. "The Republican doesn't have a chance", they proclaimed. Better to get Joe than the REALLY liberal Democrat who won the primary. I said then that Joe was a socialist and part of the socialist Democrat party, and I would not suggest that conservatives vote for him because he is slightly less socialist than someone else.
Next time, our choices will be between Obama and Stalin, and there will be some Freepers saying we better vote for Obama and hold our nose.
> Another load of steaming crap from a Romney proponent.
I am *NOT* a Romney proponent!
Right now, I’m considering writing-in Sarah Palin or Ron Paul for the General Election.
> The use of extreme exaggeration and hyperbole
The way things are going with 0bama0 and his Chicago thugs, the Black Pampers, Je$$e Jack$on, Al $harptongue, CAIR, and the VAST numbers of illegals, in our midst, not to mention the RAMPANT vote fraud, I don’t think that what I said is extreme exaggeration or hyperbole.
If (when?) the dollar collapses, I’m figuring that ammunition will be more fungible as currency than gold or even silver.
The party didn't make the field weak and didn't make voters split the notRomney vote. The weak field and lack of unity in opposition got us here.
The party ain't the problem. Re-electing Obama fixed nothing before will fix nothing next time.
massive brainwash of majority of electorate?
barring that, Newt is going no where. thats the reality.
We Freepers may be “few” in the grand scheme of things, but I have every intention of copying that chart and mailing it far and wide.
If we all did so....
Who is the Constitution Party and/or (gag) Libertarian party candidates?
I’d vote for either over Romney, even the pot-smoker from New Mexico. He’s a pro-abort, but woudl leave it to the states, and people would have to pay for it themselves. Sadly, that’s a huge improvement.
He said only in the last 24 hours before the vote that he decided he would “probably vote yes,” after being against it and opposing it the entire week before, even calling it the worst kind of socialism in that Hannity interview, and proposing a much different plan. That’s all a very important qualification to put in there rather than just saying he “supported TARP.” The nuance is important.
So, you think its wrong to vote for the opponent if the opponent is Romney..........? Wouldn’t that insure an Obama victory? So.......whats a person to do? The Pope isn’t running!
Until Willard snaps up the GOP delegates he needs, count me in the Newt camp. After that, count me in the 3rd Party camp and a pox on both their houses.
I don't know, who will they vote for? A guy who believes in God or a guy who believes in Allah and has openly mocked on tape those who "bitterly cling to their god?"
Since there is no difference between Romney and BHO who are you going to vote for?
If Gingrich is still on the ballot when the primary reaches California I will vote for him.
In the general I will not vote between a democrat communist and a Republican socialist/communist pretending to be a conservative.
All other offices yes, president no.
My point was that in addition to those mentioned by Jim, there are other points worth consideration. We have to survive as a nation for any post-2012 strategy to have meaning. I, for one, still believe the world is a dangerous place. And unilateral disarmament will leave us vulnerable to foreign aggression. 'Peace through strength' is how Reagan put it.
So there are domestic concerns and there are foreign policy concerns. Each category bears on our future.
Who is the candidates for these parties that we are to all support? Or does it matter?
What about Eric Holder, Van Jones, Cass Sunstein, Janet Napolitano, Kathleen Sebelius, Anita Dunn, Carol Browner, Valerie Jarrett, Kevin Jennings, and Elizabeth Warren (to name 10)? We aren’t just voting for a President.
Believe whatever you want about Mitt. If these people are stupid enough to believe that Romney would populate his administration with avowed Communists, then God help us all.
