  • Your Predictions: By Which Primary Will Jeb Bush Finally Bow Out And Throw Support To Ted Cruz?

    03/29/2015 12:21:57 PM PDT · by Cruz_West_Paul2016 · 89 replies
    And unless there are any changes, this is the order. Iowa, New Hampshire,Colorado,Minnesota,New York,Utah.Then from Feb.6 thru Feb.23,we have Nevada,South Carolina,North Carolina and Michigan on the 23rd. Obviously the odds of Bush even winding up in the top three are about the same as the odds of Joe Biden taking the Democrat Nomination in 2016. The far left media will probably keep Bush in the top three with their "Left Leaning Polls". Should be interesting to watch their reactions when Jeb wont even make the top four in Iowa.
  • Comical Thread:So What Happened To All Of The Protesters Holding Up Traffic?

    Wasn't it around 6 to 8 weeks ago when it seemed that everyday we were hearing about the latest uproars over either race, minimum wage, demanding free stuff and maybe even "Stopping Global Warming"? Looks like another wasted effort for the far left being it seems to be all forgotten about. So where are all of these young liberals, many with no real skills now? Could it be the weather? What? A little too cold outside for the masses to protest all of this global warming?

  • Next Step To GOP 2016.New Red State Governors Need To Keep Their Blue States Red.

    11/06/2014 4:12:29 PM PST · by Cruz_West_Paul2016 · 3 replies
    Now that we have flipped some potential blue states red, next step will be for the new Governors to make sure they Stay Red For The Next Two Years! Clean up their corrupt voting precincts, make sure the total in each district or precinct isn't 5000 more than allowed! (Like in Philly&Blue Wisconsin Districts).Remove all dead people, fake & suspicious names from every district. We now have the potential to take Illinois, Colorado, Maryland and maybe Massachusetts if each "Newly Red State" spends the next two years cleaning up their voter registrations and scrutinize every suspicious name and address.

  • So Charlie Crist Left GOP Cause Of Racism? Assuming Democrats Are A Racist Free Party?

    And how come no one challenged Charlie Crist on his accusations of racism within the GOP? When he has been interviewed on this issue of party switching, he should of been asked at least these two simple questions. Charlie, you claim there are racists among the GOP, can you name them for us? And Charlie, you switched over to the Democrat Party because of Republican Racism, yet the Democrat Party is notorious throughout America for "Being The Party Of Corruption And Racists", So Why Did You Become A Democrat?

    This has to be one of the primary reasons Republicans lose in purple swing states by a very narrow margin. Take the latest Virginia Governor's race as an example, all looked well until the end, then a few blue districts reported at the last minute and we lost! Same with November 2012. We were winning in most crucial states right till the end, meanwhile still waiting for a few "Last Minute Deep Blue" districts to call in their votes. Is this going to happen again in those few close senate races in Georgia and North Carolina? It would seem like...

    If we would turn off Mike Huckabee when he airs on Fox News, the ratings may plummet and then we may see what he would do next. Maybe he would be offered a job with CNN or MSNBC. Then he would be right at home and we may possibly see how he truly feels about the issues. In my opinion it's this kind of person who is ruining the conservative name. He needs to be labeled properly and not allowed to run on the Republican ticket in 2012. We have 4 years to begin exposing these sorts.
  • Should Palin run for Stevens senate seat?

    11/09/2008 12:39:14 AM PST · by mathwhizz · 54 replies · 175+ views
    Assuming Stevens wins his senate seat and then Reid expels him, there will be a special election within 90 days according to Alaska law. For politicians with presidential ambitions, it's usually best to stay as Governor as history has shown rarely do senators get elected President. But Palin's situation is unique, she already has plenty of executive experience as mayor and governor. Her big problem seems to be the remoteness of Alaska keeps her out of the public eye and her lack of experience with national issues. Let's face it. Most people think of Alaska as "Northern Exposure" and not...

The crowd filled the stands, filled the baseball infield and overflowed into a good portion of the outfield. Saying more than 10,000, is not exactly truthful when the attendance was actually estimated to be 22,000. “Let me ask you to root now for another team of mavericks,” Palin said before the crowd of more than 10,000 at Suplizio Field drowned out her remarks.

If Obama WAS born in Hawaii he was delivered by SOMEONE – an OB/GYN, a midwife (given his mother’s hippy/earth mother tendencies this seems possible) – and yet no one has stepped forward in Hawaii to say – “Hey, I was present at the birth!” That strikes me as a little odd... a dog not barking. Honolulu is a small (1,211,537 in 2000) town TODAY (the hotels and tourist trade belies the fact that there are relatively few people living in the city) – in 1961 Honolulu was MUCH...

    Put it here and keep it out of the threads.I don't think anyone finds it funny anymore. Someone please, add Bush's Fault to Lake Superior State University list of blacklisted words. Face the music. It's time you bite the bullet and go back to the drawing board to find something more cutting edge. No pennies for your thoughts, just better late than never because your beating a dead horse beyond the shadow of a doubt.

    Yesterday I found out why Democrats are fighting privatization of part of Social Security so fiercely; it's what has long been rumored: citizens freed from dependence on the Federal Government are likely to vote Republican. On a local talk radio program (Mike Barnicle on WTKK 96.9 FM in Boston) yesterday (Thursday, February 10) Representative Ed Markey let the cat out of the bag. The primary concern of Democrats is that Social Security privatization will cause citizens to no longer look at the sports pages in the newspaper first; they'll begin to look at the business pages to see how their...

    Dear Freepers,I'm getting old and perhaps a little wacky but as I look back over my life I continue to try and understand how my country hasn't quite turned out the way my mother and father brought me up to believe it should be and what it was I was always raised to defend. So I've started making a list of those things that just seem to represent a betrayal of what I always thought America is about...freedom. Its a short list, I'm still working on it and I know many, if not most, will not agree with everything on...
