    If you read until the end, I cite the specific post by Max Lucado that I am referring to. I apologize for the lack of clarity.

    But those evils pale in comparison to what I now see. I see decent elected officials, decent writers, decent pastors, and decent personalities point the canons of their pens at one indecent man. One man who did none of the above. One man who did not sell baby parts nor pay for them nor force us to pay for them. One man whose primary crime is not that he is indecent, not that he is immoral, not that he is a braggart. No, his crime is that he is these things in public.

    He does not hide in the cloak rooms of power presiding over his retinue of pages and interns as kings of old ruled over their harems. He does not seek out every moment of public light to show his vaunted righteousness to the religious masses only to return to his foam parties and well heeled dinner parties.

    Donald Trump is Donald Trump. What you see is what you get. At least, we hope it is. Perhaps he is a new American Caesar. I do not fear a single despot, for in this land still flows the blood that cries, “Death to tyrants!” “Long live the revolution!” I fear what Hobbes called the Leviathan. Orwell called it Oceania. The Wachowski Brothers called it the Matrix. And the Bible calls it the Beast. What I fear is a government industrial machine that is dedicated to wiping out all freedom.

    My problem is not with the Donald, my problem is not even with the armies of Republicans who live and breath in DC and on K Street, and who are now in danger of losing their magazine cover houses and apartments. I have no problem with them attempting to maintain their position in the face of the overwhelming flood that is Donald Trump. My message to them is that he is only a forerunner of things to come.

    My problem is with the high minded pastors and personalities who believe that it is their mission to savage their fellow citizens for the crime of putting off the battered wife syndrome. These pastors and personalities are no longer guides leading us into righteousness, they have become the thug carrying along his cudgel collecting the protection money for the boss, and angry now that the shopkeeper finally has the gall to say no. It just so happens that the shopkeeper has found a bigger bully to help him out. It might be that someday the bully will turn into another boss himself. If so, at least the current regime will end.

    Answer these questions to see if I am right. Where was the outrage by those same decent pastors and personalities at the indecent murder of innocents? Where was the same vitriol at the indecent war in Syria and the funding of Moderate Muslim terrorists by the decent John McCain and the decent Lindsey Graham? Where were the cries of “bad form” against the raising of the debt into astronomical measure? And where was the rending of the clothes at the continued funding of the American Nazi chop shops? So ask yourself why now? Why are we to be angry at Trump? Simply because he has the indecency to stop the flow of money to Washingtonians who are the ones screaming now “bad form” at the possible loss of their cushy jobs. If the Donald makes good on his promises, those same Washingtonians would have to return to the private sector where their real enemy lies, us, the American people.

    I would like to sum up my feelings on Max Lucado's charge of indecency to the Donald. Mr. Lucado, to hell with your decency.

    Third, it was racist because "Hands up, Dont shoot, was a mantra built upon a lie." Michael Brown was shot because he did attempt to assault the police after he had strong armed robbed a cigar shop. Michael Brown did not have his hands up, that was also a lie. These lies led to a mob mentality that destroyed a city, engulfed a nation, and showed the world that the Black community in Ferguson is gullible to be led to burn itself down by the White Racist Cop stereotype. Instead of calming racial tensions, General, you are further inflaming them, just like the President you voted in.


    But we are told all the time that we need RINOs like these to win back the White House. No we do not. If we are going to be forced by our barista to have a discussion about race, then lets talk about how much better the US is than any European country about race, about the systemic racism of the Latino community against Blacks, and about the duplicitous leaders of the Black community who have led their people in poverty and dehumanized them by their Marxist philosophies instead of the Western Tradition of hard work, law abiding citizenry, sex inside of marriage, and contributing to the public welfare. Or just tell the barista to hand you your Large (not Grande) coffee and keep their social engineering projects to themselves.

    End racism by getting an education, getting a job, staying out of crime, getting married before having sex, contributing your individual talents to the community, and defending everyone else's right to do the same regardless of their educational, family, religious, or cultural backgrounds!

    Furthermore, how about we talk about the insane levels of racism on the Left, whom love the cahartic Starbucks campaign so they can buy their coffee, atone for their sins, and get to work on time.

    How about the sad case of this amazing young, black man who did the unpardonable sin of leaving the Liberal Democrat plantation, and living the Free life as a Conservative Republican.


    Now for the funny. Here are some wonderful replies to the absolutely ignorant attempt at social engineering by the entitled Elite of Starbucks.

    Doug, we part ways on this one issue: a Conservative CAN win! You are SO wrong about this. A true, actual Conservative that believes like us CAN absolutely win the nomination and the General Election. This country is NOT Leftist. You and I are being manipulated, scammed, and sabotaged. Our candidates were getting bush wacked in 2008-2010 and that is why I started my unsuccessful little blog, , in order to give some push back (there I go with the blog pimping again. So ZOT me! Ive been to the other side and back once! Im joking for effect people, please dont ZOT)

    My point is, my dear brother in arms, is that the whole concept of HAVING to vote for these guys is completely absurd, because we DONT have to accept poison or shotgun to the face. We can have what we want, but its going to take some pain. We have to start looking out for our people by doing what they do to ours, shoot them before they get out of the gate.

    Jeb is definitely going up on the list, as soon as I get some time. And like I told someone else who asked why Christie was not yet on the RINO List, “You have to be a Republican to be a Republican in Name Only.”

    First, I am one of very few who can say have been ZOTed and UnZOTed! Its kinda like being dead then undead, but whatever. Im not asking for ZOTing to happen, but pointing out the hijacking is legitimate, because it goes to show the vitriol NOT of those rabid, purist Conservatives, but of the nastiness of the Romney-bots who thought they were going to get several extra wives too.

    Second, the winning strategy is to make the Star Chamber/Bilderberg Group/NWO who the heck ever is in charge of the power in the GOP that we only want a Republican that will obey the Constitution and perform the Party Platform as it is written in our conventions each election cycle. By consistently saying NO to Liberal RINOs, they will have to make a choice to leave the party, kill the party, or give us what we want. Wait one minute! That sounds almost exactly and entirely like Representation in a Democratic Republic! You mean to tell me that the Conservative, anti-RINO philosophy is actually just what our Founders intended and that they NEVER intended someone to vote for the lessor of two evils? You mean that Conservatives are NOT myopically obsessed with winning only one election and then hoping for the best? You mean to tell me we put in a mixed group of Republicans in Congress and absolutely no one as the balls to stand up to the President when they hold one freaking third of the Govt?

    What has happened to Free REPUBLIC?

    I can assure you, even with RINOs in office, the Libs would not allow the oncoming Zombie Apocalypse to be forestalled, but I completely agree on all other counts. Here is the theory behind why I took a decidedly and intellectually negative slant during the fertile early days of the Tea Party. Liberal Republicans have been the consistent problem with the consistent application of the Republican Party Platform. Not mind you, Right Wing polices, but simply the Party Platform! We have had a divided Party for DECADES! If the Tea Party was ever going to be successful, it was going to take some extremely consistent negative push back against what has now become known as the Establishment. We were NOT going to get that at the early days of 2008-2010 with Beck, Rush, and Levin willing to be accommadating to Congressional Republicans who did not walk the walk. It was a time when people on our side wanted a win at the ballot box not a win in legislation. THIS IS WHAT WE GET! Those decisions BACK THEN are what is killing us now! That is why I scream to the roof tops that beating every RINO in ANY election, Primary or General, should be at the top of the list, whatever the short term cost, because the long term viability of the Republic is at stake.

    To be completely honest, my gut feeling is that we have turned down a road that there is no coming back from. I fear for my nation, for my people, and for the world. As a fellow commentator said earlier on this thread, things are looking more and more Biblical by the day.

    Whatever happens, seek God for your spiritual salvation, He can ONLY be found in the Bible (specifically read the Gospel of John and Romans), love your neighbours as deeply as possible, keep your powder dry, and when the day comes to write the next chapter in the American Revolution, shoot straight and die well.

    First, all the thread hijackers need to stand down. Using a thread about the recent gun control of our liege as an attempt to smear Conservatives is something for the Huffington Post comment section, NOT Free Republic.

    Second, the President CANNOT decide which parts of the 2nd Amendment he likes or dislikes or interprets to like or dislike. It is Congress’ authority granted them by the Constitution to reign in the President through legislative action or by impeachment. GO call Boehner and tell him to keep on fighting using every legal means he has, like of course how he has been doing since he took control in 2011, right? Oh wait, thats right, one of the first acts as Speaker he did was go golfing with the liege, like a good RINO does. He has been milktoast like rest of the gang, who “we have to vote for or else the Libs are in charge.”

    Third, ANYTIME you place a RINO in nomination, expect to lose to the Democrat. That would make a smart guy think, “Ya know, those Conservatives really mean what they say, and wont accept our junk RINO candidates. Guess we better not vote for them in the primaries and that we better scream to high Heaven against them, or else the Democrats will win.” That is exactly the point with the McCain loss and the Romney loss, STOP PUTTING THOSE %$&#@* UP FOR NOMINATION!

    Those are your answers! Now get busy, since we are on the same side, right, Romney-bots?

    Since I am the RINO List dude, some here call a blog pimp, I would like to take the responsibility for defeating Mitt “RINO” Romney. I would also like to remind some of the Romney-Bots that first the whole lesser of two evils argument is a negative argument for someone. That right there kills it for you off the bat. If your best argument is that he is less bad than the alternative, you kind of have already lost the argument, which is why you DID lose the argument and the election.

    Romney never was nor is a Capitalist. He was and is a Merchantilist. He was and is an East Coast Liberal. He was on the Main Street Republican board along with Juan McCain and Lindsey Grahmnesty which accepted money from George “Dr. Evil” Soros. The way we know it was the old wrinkly evil guy was because Michelle Malkin discovered and published the info years ago.

    Now, about da guns. If you apes think that RINO Romney would have protected the guns from gun grabbers, please explain these things from the Mittster!

    From the Washington Post:

    “Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has actually been more active than Obama on gun control — albeit during his time in Massachusetts. Since leaving office, he has moved away from those positions.

    While running for Senate in Massachusetts in 1994, Romney supported background checks and a ban on some assault weapons. “That’s not going to make me the hero of the NRA,” he said. Running for governor in 2002, he said, “We do have tough gun laws in Massachusetts — I support them. I won’t chip away at them. I believe they help protect us, and provide for our safety.”

    As governor, in 2004, signed an assault-weapons ban in the state. However, that law won support from some gun-rights advocates by making it easier to get and renew a firearms license. Romney also raised the state’s gun-registration fee from $25 to $75.

    Romney joined the National Rifle Association in 2006, a few months before launching his first presidential bid. “I’m a member of the NRA and believe firmly in the right to bear arms,” he said in 2007.

    Pressed by NBC’s Tim Russert on the issue that year, he said, “I support Second Amendment rights, but I don’t line up 100 percent with the NRA. They take some positions that are different than mine.” He continued to support the assault-weapons ban, reaffirming that position in a 2008 debate.

    However, in a subsequent interview with conservative bloggers, Romney said, “I don’t support any gun control legislation, the effort for a new assault weapons ban, with a ban on semi-automatic weapons, is something I would oppose. There’s no new legislation that I’m aware of or have heard of that I would support.” “

    For a snort worthy display of his “positions” see

    How about this:

    “I’m after the NRA’s endorsement,” Romney told an audience in Derry, N.H. “I’m not sure they’ll give it to me. I hope they will.”

    These guys here were WAY too nice to the Mittster mostly because they omit a TON of evidence that the above sites do give. But even then they give him a half flip.

    This video will make you laugh or snort depending.

    And finally this from the Gun Owners of America BEFORE the election.

    PLEASE stop the lies that RINOmney would have been this champion of Conservatism and a defender of our guns. By this time, he would be “mulling over” what to do to enforce greater gun control.

  • Post Nuclear Option: RINO's Will Revert to Old Senate Rules..?

    11/13/2014 7:28:48 PM PST · 28 of 29
    donjuanluis07 to gaijin

    Since blog pimping is frowned upon in this establishment, here is the section that I wrote about this back in 2012:

    “THE GANG OF 14
    The camaraderie of the Senate was under attack when President George Bush decided to fulfill his duty and appoint his choice for judgeships. Progressives threatened to filibuster. However, the Republicans planned what became known as the dreaded Nuclear Option. It was an attempt by Bill Frist, then President of the Senate, to end a filibuster by amending the Senate rules to end the filibuster by a simple majority of 51. A 60-vote majority is needed to call for cloture on a filibuster by current Senate Rules. Changing this rule was, and still is, completely inside the bounds of the Senate Rules and the Traditions. That fact is key. So is this fact; it has all happened before, and it will all happen again. Republicans at that time had a 55-vote majority which could have removed the filibuster and allowed each nominee an up or down vote, once again according to the Constitution and to tradition. The tradition of the Senate has been historically to give every nomination an up or down vote. By filibustering, the Senate Democrats gave a higher threshold for the nomination process, a 60-vote majority instead of a simple majority. A group of Democrats and Republicans formed to stop this attack at the calm Senate atmosphere. The seven Republicans of the Gang were: John Warner (VA), Susan Collins (ME), Olympia Snowe (ME), Mike Dewine (OH), Lindsey Graham (SC), Lincoln Chafee (RI), and John McCain (AZ). The Gang of 14 was not a rock group or punk band. These Republicans in name only forged a group with seven other Democrats to stop the use of the dreaded Republican nuclear option. In a conservative turn, Senator Orrin Hatch defended the dreaded Nuclear Option. President Bush had begun his presidency calling for a New Tone in Washington politics. He wanted everyone to play nice. Charging to the defense of the New Tone in danger by principled Conservatives, Senator Bob Dole loosed a blistering editorial. He decried the dreaded Nuclear Option which would allow the Senate Republican Majority to end the filibuster of Bush’s nominees. This was met by the glorious applause of his Senate cohorts. During the McCain 2008 Presidential run, McCain was being sold as some heroic ender of filibusters, finder of peace, and calm hand at the wheel. McCarthy and Levin wrote a piece that repudiated that false narrative. James Madison saw the Senate as a place where cooler heads prevail, as the cool saucer for the hot and lively House. It did not turn out that way for the Senate this time. Sadly by May 24 th of 2005, the RINOs won by stopping the dreaded Nuclear Option. They ended debate, and they only allowed certain nominees a vote. They refused to “advise” the rest of the President’s choices. This Gang of 14 changed the understanding of “advise” in
    the Constitution’s Provisions for the Executive Branch. Even more troubling is the language at the end of the official statement which supposes some quasi-permanent agreement to institutionalize this agreement for judicial nominations. This is an incredibly unconstitutional and dangerous precedent in Senate rules. Three of the seven RINOs are no longer in the Senate. Senator John Warner, a distinguished World War II veteran, did not seek reelection in 2008. During his tenure, John Warner was a supporter of gun control who voted for the Brady Bill, fought with Diane Feinstein for a 10-year extension on the Assault Weapons Ban, voted against Reagan’s nomination for Supreme Court Justice, the extremely qualified Robert Bork, worked to undermine the Bush Administration’s detainment of terrorists, and worked unsuccessfully to make Cap and Trade a reality. Mike Dewine lost his Ohio Senate seat in 2006 to Democrat Sherrod Brown. This was due to Dewine’s participation in the Gang of 14, his gun control beliefs, and the corruption scandal of Republican Governor Bob Taft. Lincoln Chafee was a member of the Republican
    Main Street Partnership who supported abortion. He opposed the death penalty, opposed charter schools supporting failing public schools, supported embryonic stem cell research, supported gay rights, supported the Death Tax opposing any repeal, and consistently lobbied Israel to retreat from its land. He voted against President Bush by writing in George H. W. Bush on his general election ballot. He opposed John Bolton’s nomination, and was the only Republican to oppose the nomination of Samuel Alito. Chafee even considered running against George Bush for the
    nomination of the Republican Party! No wonder Human Events gave Lincoln Chafee the ignoble title, RINO of the year. However, it is a wonder why after years of defiant opposition from Chafee, President Bush decided to stump for him in the primary against a conservative who lost by an extremely small margin. So typical of a Progressive Republican. The peace of the Senate was restored, which meant that the Democrats won. Conservatives cringed at the damage done by this band of misguided fools.
    Commentators asked the beleaguered troops to be angry but wait for the eventual collapse of whatever “extraordinary circumstances” came to mean. Conservatives were correct to expect a short-lived truce. The lofty ideals the Gang of 14 fell back down to earth. Filibusters resumed in earnest in
    2011. The Gang was broken.”

  • Top Ten Things an Exceptional Conservative Can Do!

    02/21/2014 7:37:29 PM PST · 1 of 4
    Last week, I had the great honor to be a guest on Ken McClenton's amazing show, "The Exceptional Conservative!"  It was simply a marvelous experience!  Here is the audio replay of that show!

    Ken has a heart to reach his community with the powerful message of God's plan for human freedom.  I share the same heart to reach as many people with the message that God created them, that we spurned His love and sinned against Him.  Then, our Creator, in His boundless love, sent His Son Jesus to us, in order to save us from our sins.  As well, our Creator bestowed on us the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  

    I had the privilege to tell Ken that there are TEN THINGS everyone can do to be an Exceptional Conservative and an Exceptional American!  If you do not have time to listen to the program, but still want to be an Exceptional Conservative, here is my Top Ten List:

    Ten things every American can do to help our country

    1. Read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution! I read them several times a year and each time I tear up thinking of what these people went through in order to do this. Amazing!

    2. Practice what you read there! Practice civil responsibility by financially and physically supporting a true Tea Party Candidate.


    Tea Party Patriots

    3. Practice your Second Amendment rights by studying, taking a safety course, and purchasing a firearm.  Also, check out a gun show for more convenient purchasing options.  Check with your local sheriff for regulation and legal information.  They are there to help!

    4. Practice civil disobedience to all gun registration laws like thousands of your fellow Americans have done in Connecticut, the state where the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook happened.

    5. Practice frugality by taking your money out of the stock market. ALL OF IT! EVEN YOUR 401K NOW! Read Zerohedge, and live within your means!

    6. Discuss! Do not just sit in your homes venting to one another! Find someone of the other side to talk to, and convert him or her! You have the knowledge and you have a voice! Use them!

    7. Exercise your freedom of Religion by actually attending Church or Synagogue.

    8. Read the Bible! It was the founding document that all of the framers had read numerous times, and that they all cited as inspiration for our country! It is still a relevant book for today, even more so as we see the direction of our country!

    9. Do what I did tonight with believers in Ecuador, PRAY! PRAY! PRAY! We were a prayerful nation in the past, and we could be again if each of us pray!

    10. I am not a prepper, but I am prepared to meet my God.  That preparation of the soul gives me the power and strength to be prepared to help my friends and family in the future.  Don't be a prepper, but be prepared to help your friends and family, trusting in God to get you through. Dark days are ahead!

We will experience alot of turmoil if we take either the Kenyan or the RINO for 4 more years, but we cant take the RINO as he would undermine DeMint and others. If you care about them, then hope as I do that Romney fails.

    No Troll here dude. As I challenged you, when did OBAMA infringe MY personal rights in MY personal life? You never mentioned anything Obama has done to me in my personal life. Furthermore, several of your examples are his ATTEMPTS to infringe OTHER people. If I am not mistaken, he failed in several of those, due to our Constitutional protections. Conservatism is not weighed by how much I hate Obama, I am a Conservative due to what I believe about my country and myself. RINOS have to go, they are what gave us Hussein in the first place, and you want to solve it by putting RINO #1 in the Oval Office? Whose trolling who?

    In the past I was one of those receiving lectures from FR's party faithful about the need to set aside principle and cast the practical vote for the party nominee. I hated hearing it, and despise the GOP who apparently despises me. But....

    skeeter, you were doing so well until that but. Obama CANNOT destroy this country. He is ONLY 1/3. Has he done quite a lot of damage, no doubt. My problem is that MOST FReepers will be the ones yakking to us when Williard goes Dances with Liberals on us that we need to stay behind him b/c he's better than if we had Obama. Feel me?

    Far from a troll. I am tired of being played by the party that is out of power simply because they are out of power. I am an actual Conservative, one that doesnt need Rush or Hannity to tell me whats up. Think for yourself, dont be a lemming.

    I still practice the right to free assembly, Speech, religion, owning guns, and living my life. So tell me, where have these been infringed in MY LIFE? They havent. Does Obama WANT to take away my freedoms? Probably. Does he have the power or the willpower to do so? Absolutely NOT! Beck, Rush, Hannity, et al have made it their biz to gin up votes so their guys can be in office. Well guess what, I am sick of RINOs. Hence the whole RINO List website. Get rid of the RINO and I will gladly vote the WHOLE Republican ticket. Thats the point.

    If Obama wins, and we take the Senate, we have 1/3 under Repub control, so HE CANT DO ANYTHING if McConnell and Boehner are as awesome as you would like me to believe. Then in 4 years, we get to pick a real Conservative, since the RINO GOP would not dare pick a loser three times in a row. If we get Romney, and the Senate, we got 2/3 and Romney gets people like YOU, who will give him anything he wants because its better than Obama. We will get Amnesty, Cap and Trade, Homo agenda, abortion, etc. ad infinitum, all b/c YOU said, hes better than Obama. AND if we get Romney, we either get another Obama in 4 yrs or 4 more years of RINO Romney and RINO policies, which if you cant figure out are Obama’s policies ONLY with an R before them. So how’s the one that needs to think about his decisions?

    The whole, Obama is going to take all of our rights line, has grown tiresome. He is a Socialist, and WILL try to turn us into an European style system. However, he cannot do much more damage IF we keep the House and gain the Senate, which it looks like we will. The argument that some FReepers have taken that its Armaggeddon or Romney is absurd. And you WILL NEVER see a legitimate primary challenge in 2016, so if you get Romney, you either get him for 4 then another Obama, or you get 8 years of RINO policies (ie Liberal Socialist Policies) but with the Republican brand, and NO way of stopping it. FReepers are wrong. When we lost the party nomination, we lost the White House.

    The fundamental philosophy of Mitt Romney is Mitt Romney. I know that seems to be Conservative and Ron Paul Supporter boilerplate, however it has been the consistent interpretation of Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney has consistently said what he believes the audience in front of him wants to hear. Please read the comment by the Editorial Board of the Wall Street Journal:
    The problem is not that Mr. Romney is willing to reconsider his former thinking. Nor is it so much that his apparent convictions always seem in sync with the audience to which he is speaking at the moment. ... Plenty of politicians attune their positions to new constituencies. The larger danger is that Mr. Romney's conversions are not motivated by expediency or mere pandering but may represent his real governing philosophy. Editorial, “Romney’s Convictions,” Wall Street Journal, February 1, 2008.
    This philosophy of duplicity is seen best through the opposition research done by John McCain. McCain worked up a 200 page paper that outlines every single Romney misstep in his ascendency into the national spotlight. It reads like the history of some of the most liberal California Democrats. Michael Brendan Dougherty from Business Insider had a run down of the top 14 flip-flops from McCain's paper. Here they are in their entirety:

    1 On Immigration - For A Path To Citizenship, Then Against

    FLIP: “Gov. Mitt Romney expressed support ... for an immigration program that places large numbers of illegal residents on the path toward citizenship ... Romney said illegal immigrants should have a chance to obtain citizenship.” (Evan Lehmann, “Romney Supports Immigration Program, But Not Granting ‘Amnesty’,” The Lowell Sun, 3/30/06)FLOP: “[I] think I’m best off to describe my own positions. And my positions, I think I’ve just described for you – secure the border, employment verification and no special pathway to citizenship. I feel that’s the course we ought to take.” (CNN’s “The Situation Room,” 5/22/07)

    2 On George W. Bush's Tax-Cuts

    FLIP: “[R]omney spoke at the 10th annual legislative conference organized by U.S. Rep. Martin T. Meehan (D-Lowell) and met with the Massachusetts delegation. ... Congressional sources said that a point of contention arose when Romney refused to take a position on Bush’s massive, 10-year tax cut plan.” (Noelle Straub, “Romney Talks Policy With Bush Staffers, Mass. Delegation,” Boston Herald, 4/11/03)FLOP: "McCain opposed President Bush’s tax cuts, Romney noted. ‘I supported them,’ the former governor said.” (Lee Bandy, “Romney Targeting McCain,” The State [SC], 2/4/07)

    3 Anti-Reagan then, now Pro-Reagan.

    FLIP: “I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush. I’m not trying to return to Reagan- Bush,” Mitt Romney said during a debate with Ted KennedyFLOP: "'Ronald Reagan is one of my heroes,' Romney said as he praised Reagan’s strategy for winning the Cold War: ‘We win; they lose.’” (Michael Levenson, “Romney Links Gay Marriage, US Prestige,” The Boston Globe, 2/26/05)

    4 On The National Rifle Association And Gun Laws

    FLIP: “[Romney] said he will take stands that put him at odds with some traditional ultra- conservative groups, and cited his support for the assault rifle ban and the Brady gun control law. ‘That’s not going to make me the hero of the NRA,’ he said. ‘I don’t line up with a lot of special interest groups.’” (Andrew Miga, “Mitt Rejects Right-Wing Aid,” Boston Herald, 9/23/94)FLOP: Romney told a Derry, N.H., audience, ‘I’m after the NRA’s endorsement. I’m not sure they’ll give it to me. I hope they will. I also joined because if I’m going to ask for their endorsement, they’re going to ask for mine.’” (Glen Johnson, “Romney Calls Himself A Longtime Hunter,” The Associated Press, 4/5/07)

    5 On Whether He Even Owns A Gun (This story changed within just a few days)

    FLIP: "I have a gun of my own. I go hunting myself.I’m a member of the NRA and believe firmly in the right to bear arms," Romney said. (Glenn And Helen Show,, 1/10/07)FLOP: "Asked by reporters at the gun show Friday whether he personally owned a gun, Romney said he did not.He said one of his sons, Josh, keeps two guns at the family vacation home in Utah, and he uses them ‘from time to time.’” (Scott Helman, “Romney Retreats On Gun Control,” The Boston Globe, 1/14/07)

    6 Is the planet warming? Mitt probably agreed with you at one time or another.

    FLIP: "I think the global warming debate is now pretty much overand people recognize the need associated with providing sources which do not generate the heat that is currently provided by fossil fuels ...” (Jack Coleman, “Massachusetts Governor Urges Use Of Alternative Energy,” Cape Cod Times, 3/14/03)“I concur that climate change is beginning to [have an] effect on our natural resources and that now is the time to take action ...”(“Romney OK With Plan On Emissions,” Boston Herald, 7/24/03)FLOP: “I have to tell you with regards to global warming that that’s something, which, you’re right, the scientists haven’t entirely resolved, but no question about one thing, it’s getting warmer, and a lot of good reasons for us to use less energy, to use it more efficiently and to develop sources here in this country that could allow us to be more independent of foreign sources.” (CNBC’s “Kudlow & Company,” 2/7/07)

    “Unfortunately, some in the Republican Party are embracing the radical environmental ideas of the liberal left. As governor, I found that thoughtful environmentalism need not be anti-growth and anti-jobs. But Kyoto-style sweeping mandates, imposed unilaterally in the United States, would kill jobs, depress growth and shift manufacturing to the dirtiest developing nations. Republicans should never abandon pro-growth conservative principles in an effort to embrace the ideas of Al Gore.” (Romney For President, Press Release, 2/23/07)

    7 Don't Ask Don't Tell? Don't Ask Mitt Romney

    FLIP: In 1994 “[Romney] called President Bill Clinton’s ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ military policy ‘the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestlyin our nation’s military.’” (Dan Balz and Shailagh Murray, “Mass. Governor’s Rightward Shift Raises Questions,” The Washington Post, 12/21/06)FLOP: “[Romney] defended his policy switch on gays in the military. He said when he first heard the phrase ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ he thought it was ‘kind of a silly phrase that didn’t make a lot of sense.’ But the last 10 years have convinced him that the policy is working and there is no reason to change it, he said.” (Alexa Aguilar, “Romney Campaigns In Chicago,” Chicago Tribune, 4/12/07)

    8 Has your position on same-sex marriage changed? So has Mitt Romney's.

    FLIP: When a 2002 Constitutional Amendment was proposed to ban same-sex marriage, Romney opposed it. “Romney’s family members signed the petition to put it on the ballot ‘without reading the fine print,’ [Romney aide Eric] Fehrnstrom said, but he has no reason to believe they do not support it. ‘Mitt did not know they signed it, and Mitt does not support it,’ he said. ‘As far as Mitt is concerned, it goes farther than current law, and therefore it’s unnecessary.’” (Rick Klein, “Romney Kin Signed Petition To Ban Same-Sex Marriage,” The Boston Globe, 3/22/02)FLOP: “Just two weeks before lawmakers resume a Constitutional Convention to vote on a proposed ballot initiative to ban same-sex marriage, Gov. Mitt Romney will stand with the supporters of the measure to call on the Legislature to back it. Romney will join petition backers in a State House press event today to urge the Legislature to pass the Protection of Marriage Amendmentwhen the Constitutional Convention reconvenes July 12, authorizing a 2008 ballot question asking voters to define marriage as between one man and one woman.” (Kimberly Atkins and Kate Gibson, “Mitt Joining Supporters Of Anti-Gay Wed Initiative,” Boston Herald, 6/28/06)

    9 On embryonic stem cell research, Romney's still developing a fully-formed position.

    FLIP: “Speaking at a bioethics forum, GOP gubernatorial hopeful Mitt Romney yesterday endorsed embryonic stem cell research... [Romney] endorsed embryonic stem cell research, saying the controversial science might one day help treat his wife’s multiple sclerosis in addition to numerous other degenerative diseases. ... Romney spoke extensively about his position on stem cell research, which also involves embryo destruction.” (Raja Mishra, “Romney Endorses Stem Cell Research, Is Silent On Cloning,” The Boston Globe, 6/14/02)FLOP: ...On Feb. 10, 2005 ... Romney came out strongly against the cloning technique ... He vowed to press for legislation to criminalize the work. Romney’s opposition stunned scientists, lawmakers, and observers because of his past statements endorsing, at least in general terms, embryonic stem cell research.” (Scott Helman, “Romney’s Journey To The Right,” The Boston Globe, 12/17/06)

    10 Favorite Book? Well, that depends.

    FLIP: FOX NEWS’ MARTHA MCCALLUM: And an interesting response to his favorite novel. ROMNEY: “Actually the one by L. Ron Hubbard, I hate to think ... I’m not in favor of his religion by any means, but he wrote a book called ‘Battlefield Earth’ that was a very fun science fiction book.” (Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” 4/30/07)FLOP (Maybe just a hedge): "Asked about his comments during a Fox News interview Monday that L. Ron Hubbard’s 'Battlefield Earth' is his favorite novel, Romney said Huckleberry Finnis his favorite fiction and that the book by Hubbard, who founded Scientology, is his favorite science fiction reading.” (Mary Anne Ostrom, “Education Should Determine Immigrants’ Legal Status, Mitt Romney Says,” The [San Jose, CA] Mercury News, 5/1/07)

    11 His Own Health-Care Initiative. He's Not Sure About That Either.

    FLIP: "In a Colonial-era hall, with a fife-and-drum corps marching in with him, Gov. Mitt Romney (R) signed a bill Wednesday requiring all Massachusetts residents to purchase health insurance-- portraying the measure as a historic solution to health-care costs, even as questions emerge about whether the state can afford it. The signing [was] staged with a near-presidential attention to theatrics and slogan-bearing banners...” (David A. Fahrenthold, “Mass. Marks Health-Care Milestone,” The Washington Post, 4/13/06)FLOP: "As governor of Massachusetts he signed a bipartisan law intended to ensure that every resident has coverage. Romney touted it as an innovative free-market solution. Yet these days, Romney ... is much more likely to present his state’s universal coverage law as not a model to copy but an example for other states to learn from. He’s now a critic of his own biggest achievement.” (Sean Higgins, “Ex-Gov. Romney Keeps Distance From His Own Mass. Health Plan,” Investor’s Business Daily, 3/7/07)

    12 Tax Pledges are beneath Romney, until the presidency was in front of him.

    FLIP: “Four years ago, Mitt Romney broke with GOP tradition and refused to sign the [Americans for Tax Reform] pledge[to ‘oppose and veto any and all efforts to increase taxes’].” (Lisa Wangsness, “Healey Will Sign Antitax Pledge,” The Boston Globe, 9/4/06)“Romney’s Gubernatorial Campaign Spokesman, Eric Fehrnstrom, Dismissed Such Pledges At The Time As ‘Government By Gimmickry.’” (Scott Helman, “Romney Finds ‘No New Taxes’ Promise Suits Him After All,” The Boston Globe, 1/5/07)FLOP: “Almost five years after he refused to sign a ‘no new taxes’ pledge during his campaign for governor, Mitt Romney announced ... that he had done just that, as his campaign for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination began in earnest.” (Scott Helman, “Romney Finds ‘No New Taxes’ Promise Suits Him After All,” The Boston Globe, 1/5/07)

    13 Money in politics? Sometimes its good, sometimes it is bad.

    FLIP: “Romney also said he advocates spending limits on congressional elections, even suggesting that the current race against Sen. Edward M. Kennedy should have a $6 million spending cap.” (Frank Phillips, “Romney, Vowing To Live It, Touts Congress Reform Plan,” The Boston Globe, 7/27/94)"[Mitt Romney] once touted dramatic restructuring measures such as taxing political contributions and placing spending limits on federal campaigns.” (Alexander Bolton, “Romney’s About-Face On Campaign Funding,” The Hill, 2/8/07)FLOP: “Romney noted his foe from Arizona wrote the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform law that restricts certain types of contributions. ‘That’s a terrible piece of legislation,’ Romney said.‘It hasn’t taken the money out of politics. ... (But) it has hurt my party.’” (Lee Bandy, “Romney Targeting McCain,” The State, 2/4/07)

    14 NOW THE BIG ONE: During his 1994 Senate Run, Mitt Romney argued that he was more pro-choice than Ted Kennedy

    FLIP: “When Kennedy called him ‘multiple choice,’ Romney demanded an extra rebuttal. He revealed that a close relative died of an illegal abortion years ago and said, ‘Since that time, my mother and my family have been committed to the belief that we can believe as we want, but we will not force our beliefs on others on that matter, and you will not see me wavering on that.’” (Joan Vennochi, “Romney’s Revolving World,” The Boston Globe, 3/2/06)

    I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. I have since the time that my mom took that position when she ran in 1970 as a US Senate candidate. I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years we should sustain and support it.” (Joan Vennochi, “Romney’s Revolving World,” The Boston Globe, 3/2/06)
    (continued) When he went to conservative Utah, that tune changed.

    FLOP: “When I am asked if I am pro-choice or pro-life, I say I refuse to accept either label.” (Glen Warchol, “This Is The Place, But Politics May Lead Romneys Elsewhere,” The Salt Lake Tribune, 2/14/99)

    But I'm running for office in Massachusetts again, so I'm pro-choice again

    FLIP: “I will preserve and protect a woman’s right to choose, and am devoted and dedicated to honoring my word in that regard. I will not change any provisions of Massachusetts’ pro-choice laws.” (2002 Romney-O’Brien Gubernatorial Debate, Suffolk University, Boston, MA, 10/29/02)

    In 2002, Romney Offered His Completed NARAL Questionnaire, Filled Out With “Mostly Abortion-Rights Positions,” To The Media Even Before Returning It To NARAL. “Yesterday, Romney also aimed to head off confusion about his stance on abortion rights by answering a Mass National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League questionnaire with mostly abortion-rights positions. He offered the questionnaire to the press even before he returned it to MassNARAL...”

    FLOP: Then he started thinking of national office as a Republican. ANd he happened to have a revelation

    FLOP: "Romney said he had a change of heart on the issue after speaking with a stem-cell researcher, Dr. Douglas Melton. Romney claims Melton said ‘Look, you don’t have to think about this stem cell research as a moral issue, because we kill the embryos after 14 days.’‘It hit me very hard that we had so cheapened the value of human life in a Roe v. Wade environment that it was important to stand for the dignity of human life,’ Romneysays.” (Karen Tumulty, “What Romney Believes,” Time, 5/21/07)
    The list sadly goes on, and on and on!

    As Republicans, which Mitt Romney are we voting for? Which one will show up as President? Will Romney represent Conservative ideology or Liberal thought on various issues? Those are legitimate questions to ask with the FACTS of Romney's own statements and behaviors.

    Another dangerous feature of having a RINO as a Republican Presidential nominee is that normally Conservative commentators spend their time making excuses for RINO ideology. If the Tea Party movement is to become a true reform movement, it will do well to soundly reject the Conservative commentators that bail water for RINO Romney as he destroys our Party's core belief structure.

    His speeches can only be taken in and of themselves, because on the morrow he will need to amend whatever he said before. This Mitt Romney, the one that changes his core opinions in order to accomplish his own goals, is the Mitt Romney that I hope fails, whether or not he is promoting Conservative beliefs.

    I urge Conservatives to write in a candidate of their choice or to abstain from the Presidential vote. It does not matter who others vote for, it matters who we vote for or in this case who we do not vote for. Your vote is too precious to spend it on Romney just because you are afraid of Obama. When someone makes the argument that if you don't vote for Romney, you are voting for Obama, they are urging you to vote scared. They are urging you that unless you vote against your beliefs then bad things will happen. Ignore them. Vote for someone because you believe that person is best suited to present your beliefs. If you agree with soft Socialism, then vote Obama. If you believe in whatever Romney believes in right now, then vote for Romney. But if you believe in Conservatism's belief in smaller government then you should not vote for either candidate, because neither believes in Smaller Government. Don't vote scared, vote proudly what you believe, whether or not you think it will win. You voted, you spoke in the greatest way that you can politically. Keep speaking through your vote. That is the loudest sound that our government hears.

    Blessings from the amazing God of our Great Republic. May God save our Republic so that this nation will not perish from the Earth.

    So because he says the word income several times, its now an income tax. You can quote to death, but that does not make it what you say it is. Its NOT how the tax is calculated as what determines the type of tax, but what triggers it. You can pass a toll tax, but tax differently due to type of car, luxury vs. compact. You could, with your logic, call that an income tax too. But its what TRIGGERS the tax that determines what the tax is, so, in my illustration, its a toll tax. And OBAMACARE, but Robert’s decision, is a poll tax.

    Sorry, but Roberts NEVER claims to say its a tax on income, that would be stupid. Please re-read the comment, income is a circumstance, not the rational mentioned by Roberts. Besides, there is NO declaration of what type of tax this is, and is most likely due to the reasons for getting taxed, the rationale in other words, that it is a direct tax. Mark Levin, a Constitutional lawyer, already commented on this. Please see his Thursday show from last week, its free. Regrettably, I do not agree with you.

    I have included in this post part of an article from Wikipedia, that explains the issue further, and some references to Supreme Court decisions that prohibit the direct taxation of individuals, including a poll or head taxes, also known as capitation taxes. I will repeat again for clarity, the government of the USA is prohibited by the Constitution from imposing a $600.00 tax on me or anyone else for failing to purchase a product or service, or for failing to do anything! I can only be taxed individually for doing something, never for doing nothing or for refusing to do something!

    From Wikipedia:

    Direct tax

    The term direct tax generally means a tax paid directly to the government by the persons on whom it is imposed.

    1 General meaning

    2 U.S. constitutional law sense

    3 References

    3.1 Sources

    3.2 Notes

    1. General meaning

    A direct tax is one imposed upon an individual person (juristic or natural) or on property, as distinct from a tax imposed upon a transaction. Indirect taxes such as a sales tax or a value added tax (VAT) are imposed only if and when a taxable transaction occurs; people have the freedom to engage in or refrain from such transactions; whereas a direct tax is imposed upon a person, typically in an unconditional manner, such as a poll-tax or head-tax, which is imposed on the basis of the person's very life or existence, or a property tax which is imposed upon the owner by virtue of ownership, rather than commercial use. Some commentators have argued that "a direct tax is one that cannot be shifted by the taxpayer to someone else, whereas an indirect tax can be."[1]

    The unconditional, inexorable aspect of the direct tax was a paramount concern of people in the 18th century seeking to escape tyrannical forms of government and to safeguard individual liberty. An 18th century writing about this kind of taxation explained: “The power of direct taxation applies to every individual ... it cannot be evaded like the objects of imposts or excise, and will be paid, because all that a man hath will he give for his head. This tax is so congenial to the nature of despotism, that it has ever been a favorite under such governments... The power of direct taxation will further apply to every individual ... however oppressive, the people will have but this alternative, either to pay the tax, or let their property be taken for all resistance will be vain. [2]”

    2. U.S. constitutional law sense

    In the United States, the term "direct tax" has acquired specific meaning under constitutional law: a direct tax is a tax on property "by reason of its ownership"[3] (such as an ordinary real estate property tax imposed on the person owning the property as of January 1 of each year) as well as a capitation (a "tax per head").[4] In the late 19th century, U.S. courts also began to treat an income tax on income from property as a direct tax.[5] In U.S. constitutional law, an "indirect tax" or "excise" is an "event" tax.[6] In this sense, a transfer tax (such as gift tax and estate tax) is an indirect tax. Income taxes on income from personal services such as wages are also indirect taxes in this sense.[7] The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has stated: "Only three taxes are definitely known to be direct: (1) a capitation [ . . . ], (2) a tax upon real property, and (3) a tax upon personal property."[8]

    In the United States, Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 of the Constitution requires that direct taxes imposed by the national government be apportioned among the states on the basis of population. After the 1895 Pollock ruling (essentially, that taxes on income from property should be treated as direct taxes), this provision made it difficult for Congress to impose a national income tax that applied to all forms of income until the 16th Amendment was ratified in 1913. After the Sixteenth Amendment, no Federal income taxes are required to be apportioned, regardless of whether they are direct taxes (taxes on income from property) or indirect taxes (all other income taxes).[9]

A poll tax is defined as a "capitation tax; a tax of a specific sum levied upon each person within the jurisdiction of the taxing power and within a certain class (as, all males of a certain age, etc.) without reference to his property or lack of it." Black's Law Dictionary, p. 1043 (5th ed. 1979). For background, see generally Pacific Ins. Co. v. Soule, 74 U.S. 433 (1868); and Brushaber v.

    9. ^ See generally Brushaber, above. In the context of income taxes on wages, salaries and other forms of compensation for personal services, see, e.g., United States v. Connor, 898 F.2d 942, 90-1 U.S. Tax Cas. (CCH) paragr. 50,166 (3d Cir. 1990) (tax evasion conviction under 26 U.S.C. § 7201 affirmed by the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit; taxpayer's argument -- that because of the Sixteenth Amendment, wages were not taxable -- was rejected by the Court; taxpayer's argument that an income tax on wages is required to be apportioned by population also rejected); Perkins v. Commissioner, 746 F.2d 1187, 84-2 U.S. Tax Cas. (CCH) paragr. 9898 (6th Cir. 1984) (26 U.S.C. § 61 ruled by the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit to be "in full accordance with Congressional authority under the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution to impose taxes on income without apportionment among the states"; taxpayer's argument that wages paid for labor are non-taxable was rejected by the Court, and ruled frivolous).

    Special programming note:  I want to express a special thanks to the Free Republic Community.  During the course of the writing of this blog and the book, you folks have been both a help and a major encouragement.  I thought for so many years that my family was alone in discussing and holding to these ideals.  I thought that my father's nightly arguments with the television were entirely isolated, and no one else thought this way.  Thanks for showing me that our ideals do stand strong, and that they have a strong basis in truth.  Seek truth my friends.
