  • Conservatives Won't Win Elections by Refusing To Compromise

    05/28/2014 7:05:03 PM PDT · 36 of 253
    Tamzee to Kaslin

    Every single time I vote, I compromise my principles and that is the way it should be. Unless Jesus Christ returns and runs for office, every person I vote for will be flawed and “a lesser of two evils”. It just makes sense to vote for the most viable candidate on the conservative end of the spectrum and hope enough people join in to start pushing this country back to the right.

    The only point I disagreed with Dr. Carson on is whether or not it is too late for our country... I am afraid we might be passing a point of no return :-(

  • Republicans Melt Phones in Massive GOTV Effort

    For folks who are irritated with “robo-calls”, the newer phone banks at large victory centers have automated phones. It is a real volunteer person making the call, but when they get an answering machine or voicemail, they push a button that leaves a message.

    What you think you received as a robo-call may have been a real volunteer calling to talk to you.

  • Evangelicals must stand firm on marriage amendment

    11/04/2012 6:21:46 AM PST · 4 of 14
    Tamzee to heye2monn

    The Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that the state had to allow gays to marry. Romney led the effort to get a Protection of Marriage amendment on the state ballot so that the citizens could overturn the court. The state legislature stalled on allowing the amendment, so Romney led a rally in Boston demanding that the people be allowed to vote on it. In the end, the Democrat legislature voted down the amendment and wouldn’t allow it on the ballot.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Same-sex_marriage_in_Massachusetts
    ________________________________________

    Part of Romney’s speech at the rally:

    “Legislators so energized to protect the newly discovered gay right to marry had no compunction about trammeling the long established, constitutional right of the people to vote.

    The issue now before us is not whether same sex couples should marry. The issue before us today is whether 109 legislators will follow the Constitution.

    Tomorrow, I will send these 109 a copy of the Constitution and of their oath of office.

    And this week, we will file an action before the courts, calling upon the judiciary to protect the constitutional rights of our citizens.

    Let us not see this state, which first established constitutional democracy, become the first to abandon it.”

    If our PA volunteers are “down for the count” so are the D voters in Philly. Look for turnout there o be down at least 10%.

    I hope you are right but I've searched the news and couldn't find anything about power outages in Philly to the extent we have them here in the upper right part of the conservative "T" in this state. Big swatches of conservative areas have had no power for almost a week now.

    We'll just have to do as much as we can here and hope for the best, though.

    By the way, I got your latest book and am looking forward to starting it Nov 8th. Am volunteering all my free time through the election, will be SLEEPING Nov 7th, time to read again on Thursday LOL

    False choice because, in your scenerio, both candidates support the equal amount of slaves for different reasons.

    In the case of abortion, it is one candidate who states only for rape, incest, life of the mother versus the other candidate who nor only supports unlimited abortion but also voted three times to murder late term babies born alive and outside of the mother’s body.

    You vote for the candidate who will allow less evil to take place in our society.

    I believed strongly until the last few days that Romney would win PA. The bad news is that a lot of volunteers are suddenly down for the count with no power and limited communication in northeast PA from Sandy and it has really damaged the GOTV efforts... if you live elsewhere in or near the state, please volunteer as much as possible!!! The election is so close here, it would be tragic to lose the state by a tiny margin :-(

  • New Peril for Parents: Their Kids' Student Loans

    10/27/2012 10:06:35 PM PDT · 40 of 55
    Tamzee to PGR88
    I’m curious - why doesn’t the left go after Education the way they go after health-care and insurance companies? College costs have grown faster than health care costs, and more people are being broken by student loans than by health care expenses.

    Because THE LEFT DESIGNED THE SYSTEM. It is merely another clever income transfer trap.

    I have two children in college. The financial applications have to go through the Federal govt. now, and the govt informs the family what they must pay in addition to the kids getting their own maximum loans.

    The cute thing is, if the students' parents never married or are divorced, only ONE parent's income is reported. If the student is unmarried and has a child, NO parental income needs to be reported. And of course, welfare-for-life and disability moochers don't have to show income.

    So the middle-class working families with married parents get SLAUGHTERED when the "family financial contribution" is calculated. The family doesn't sign to pay it, then the student can't go, as simple as that.

    Then you have the joy of racking up 10-20 thousand a year debt for your child to be sitting next to someone in class whose family pays NOTHING because they never got married, or grew up in a welfare-as-a-career household or the student is a teen mother.

    Massive money from conservative working families goes to pay for the college educations of OBAMA's base...it's all about "paying your fair share" now.

    He specifically points out Bill Clinton as proof that journalists publish negative stories about liberals, but that case in point actually proves the opposite.

    He vetoed the bill providing state funding for human embryonic stem cell research
    (Theo Emery, “Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney Vetoes Stem Cell Bill,” The Associated Press, 5/27/2005)

    (Governor Mitt Romney, Op-Ed, “Why I Vetoed Contraception Bill,” The Boston Globe, 7/26/2005)

    He pledged to veto any bill that would expand access to RU-486, the abortion pill

    He vetoed legislation which would have redefined Massachusetts longstanding definition of the beginning of human life from fertilization to implantation

    He supported parental notification laws and opposed efforts to weaken parental involvement
    (John McElhenny, “O’Brien And Romney Spar In Last Debate Before Election,” The Associated Press, 10/29/2002)

    He fought to promote abstinence education in public school classrooms with a program offered by faith-based Boston group Healthy Futures to middle school students. Gov. Romney’s administration was the first in Massachusetts to use federal abstinence education funds for classroom programs.

    Stuff it, darlin’... the health-care bill that Romney signed did not contain the word abortion even once.

    So you want to try to pretend that Romney bears responsibility for abortions that the Mass courts added to the state health care without him, because “it opened a door”?

    Then you yourself certainly own even greater responsibility for the future massacre of babies in this country since you are lobbying so hard to keep a man in the White House that THREE times voted against the Born Alive act.

    An Open Letter Regarding Governor Mitt Romney

    January 11, 2007

    Dear conservative friends:

    We hail from a broad spectrum of organizations dedicated to fighting for the pro-family agenda in Massachusetts. As you know, Mitt Romney became the governor of our state in 2003. Since that time, we have worked closely with him and his excellent staff on that agenda.

    Some press accounts and bloggers have described Governor Romney in terms we neither have observed nor can we accept. To the contrary, we, who have been fighting here for the values you also hold, are indebted to him and his responsive staff in demonstrating solid social conservative credentials by undertaking the following actions here in Massachusetts:

    • Staunchly defended traditional marriage. Governor Romney immediately and strongly condemned the 2003 court decision that legalized “same-sex marriage” in our state. More importantly, he followed up on that denunciation with action – action that saved our nation from a constitutional crisis over the definition of marriage. He and his staff identified and enforced a little-known 1913 law that allowed them to order local clerks not to issue marriage licenses to out-of-state couples. Absent this action, homosexual couples would surely have flooded into Massachusetts from other states to get “married” and then demanded that their home states recognize the “marriages,” putting the nation only one court decision away from nationalizing “same-sex marriage.”

    • Worked hard to overturn “same-sex marriage” in the Commonwealth with considerable progress to date. In 2004 he lobbied hard, before a very hostile legislature, for a constitutional amendment protecting marriage – an amendment later changed by the legislature to include civil unions, which the Governor and many marriage amendment supporters opposed. Working with the Governor, we were successful in defeating this amendment.

    • Provided active support for a successful citizen petition drive in 2005 to advance a clean constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

    • Rallied thousands of citizens to focus public and media attention on the failure of legislators, through repeated delays, to perform their constitutional obligation and vote on the marriage amendment.

    • Filed suit before the Supreme Judicial Court. The Governor’s suit asked the court to clarify the legislators’ duty to vote and failing that, to place the amendment on the 2008 ballot. That lawsuit, perhaps more than any other single action, was by all accounts instrumental in bringing pressure on the legislators to vote. The vote ultimately was taken on January 2, 2007 and won legislative support – clearing a major hurdle in the three year effort to restore traditional marriage in the Commonwealth.

    • Fought for abstinence education. In 2006, under Governor Romney’s leadership, Massachusetts’ public schools began to offer a classroom program on abstinence from the faith-based Boston group Healthy Futures to middle school students. Promoting the program, Governor Romney stated, “I’ve never had anyone complain to me that their kids are not learning enough about sex in school. However, a number of people have asked me why it is that we do not speak more about abstinence as a safe and preventative health practice.”

    • Affirmed the culture of life. Governor Romney has vetoed bills to provide access to the so-called “morning-after pill,” which is an abortifacient, as well as a bill providing for expansive, embryo-destroying stem cell research. He vetoed the latter bill in 2005 because the could not “in good conscience allow this bill to become law.”

    • Stood for religious freedom. Last year, Governor Romney was stalwart in defense of the right of Catholic Charities of Boston to refuse to allow homosexual couples to adopt children in its care. Catholic Charities was loudly accused of “discrimination,” but Governor Romney correctly pointed out that it is unjust to force a religious agency to violate the tenets of its faith in order to placate a special-interest group.

    • Filed “An Act Protecting Religious Freedom” in the Massachusetts legislature to save Catholic Charities of Boston and other religious groups from being forced to violate their moral principles or stop doing important charitable work.

    All of this may explain why John J. Miller, the national political reporter of National Review, has written that “a good case can be made that Romney has fought harder for social conservatives than any other governor in America, and it is difficult to imagine his doing so in a more daunting political environment.”

    We are aware of the 1994 comments of Senate candidate Romney, which have been the subject of much recent discussion. While they are, taken by themselves, obviously worrisome to social conservatives including ourselves, they do not dovetail with the actions of Governor Romney from 2003 until now – and those actions have positively and demonstrably impacted the social climate of Massachusetts.

    Since well before 2003, we have been laboring in the trenches of Massachusetts, fighting for the family values you and we share. It is difficult work indeed – not for the faint of heart. In this challenging environment, Governor Romney has proven that he shares our values, as well as our determination to protect them.

    For four years, Governor Romney has been right there beside us, providing leadership on key issues – whether it was politically expedient to do so or not. He has stood on principle, and we have benefited greatly from having him with us.

    It is clear that Governor Romney has learned much since 1994 – to the benefit of our movement and our Commonwealth. In fact, the entire nation has benefited from his socially conservative, pro-family actions in office. As we explained earlier, his leadership on the marriage issue helped prevent our nation from being plunged into even worse legal turmoil following the court decision that forced “gay marriage” upon our Commonwealth.

    For that our country ought to be thankful. We certainly are.

    So, to sum up... your insistence that he is “pro-abortion” is backed only by endlessly regurgitating ancient and/or distorted quotes.

    My insistence that is “pro-life” is backed up by years of bill signing and vetoing that is consistently pro-life, as well as a long list of testimonials from pro-life activists in Massachusetts that his decisions as governor were pro-life in every regard.

    You lose. Do not pass Go, Do not collect your $200 from Obama’s campaign payroll.

    No, I posted his ACTIONS while GOVERNOR... all on the pro-life side.

    Go on... post all of his pro-abortion actions while Governor. He signed and vetoed thousands of bills while in office.

    And you are blatantly lying when you claim “Romney rejected the pro-life party platform”. He merely stated that he agreed with rape, incest and life-of-the mother exceptions. That does not equate to rejecting “a pro-life party platform” and it is disgusting that you deliberately distort anyone’s statements like that.

    Don’t dodge... I posted a number of pro-life bills Romney signed, and anti-life bills Romney vetoed.

    You keep insisting he is pro-choice... post proof because I gave a great deal proving you wrong. Post one pro-abortion legislation Romney signed, or pro-life legislation Romney vetoed.

    OK, you said look up his record. I did, here it is, his pro-life, anti-abortion actions as Governor.


    Governor Romney was presented with legislation concerning life issues on several occasions from the 85% majority Democrat Legislature in Massachusetts. In every instance he took the pro-life position by vetoing bills or lobbying for the pro-life approach, including the following actions:

    He vetoed the bill providing state funding for human embryonic stem cell research
    (Theo Emery, “Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney Vetoes Stem Cell Bill,” The Associated Press, 5/27/2005)

    He vetoed a bill that provided for the “morning after pill” without a prescription because it is an abortifacient and would have been available to minors without parental notification and consent

    (Governor Mitt Romney, Op-Ed, “Why I Vetoed Contraception Bill,” The Boston Globe, 7/26/2005)

    He pledged to veto any bill that would expand access to RU-486, the abortion pill

    (Hugh Hewitt, “Interview with Governor Romney,” The Hugh Hewitt Show, 7/27/2005)

    He vetoed legislation which would have redefined Massachusetts longstanding definition of the beginning of human life from fertilization to implantation

    (Governor Mitt Romney, Letter To The Massachusetts State Senate And House Of Representatives, 5/12/2005)

    He supported parental notification laws and opposed efforts to weaken parental involvement

    (John McElhenny, “O’Brien And Romney Spar In Last Debate Before Election,” The Associated Press, 10/29/2002)

    He fought to promote abstinence education in public school classrooms with a program offered by faith-based Boston group Healthy Futures to middle school students. Gov. Romney’s administration was the first in Massachusetts to use federal abstinence education funds for classroom programs.

    (Office of Gov. Mitt Romney, “Romney Announces Award of Abstinence Education Contract,” Press Release, 4/20/2006)

    Governor Romney: “Times of decision are moments of great clarity. Before I was Governor, the life issue was just that, an issue. But when responsibility for life or ending life was placed in my hands, I made the right decision. I chose life.”

    (Governor Mitt Romney, Remarks At The National Right To Life Convention Forum, Kansas City, MO, 6/15/2007)

    Your turn. Let’s see you post pro-life legislation that Romney ever vetoed, or any pro-abortion bill that Romney ever signed. And don’t try to claim Romneycare because the word abortion does NOT appear anywhere in the bill he signed.

    Here they are, his FACTS... actions as Governor on pro-life legislation, vetoing pro-abortion bills, etc.

    Obviously you didn’t even read the statements before you named them as pimps.

    They ARE talking about his record of actions as Governor... and THEY were the pro-life advocates who worked with him for years in Massachusetts.

    The nasty accusation was of Graham compromising scripture by changing his site. And yet I am still waiting for a link to any material on his site that does so.

    If the links to unBiblical material on his website are so “numerous”, then please provide same.

    It is stunning to see you so piously make that nasty assessment about people living, working, breathing and walking the pro-life ministry walk.

    I'll continue to believe their testimony about Romney versus your anonymous screenname just talking a vicious talk.
