    <p>Jim Rob Is Right - But Conservatives Here Have TWO Job2 To Do!</p> <p>First - blow off that feeling that we're going to lose, or already have lost! No, we're going to WIN.</p> <p>First item of business, get invovlved in the Tea Party movement, and give D.C. a whole new influx of conservatives in Congress similar in size and importance to that of the last election - thereby blocking any of Obamas chances of having Congressional support for his machinations. Note too, the Tea Party used the GOP vehicle, not a third party. Reason, third parties are losers, because they don't have the national organization and presence large enough to compete.</p>

    So its come to this. Rick Santorum dropped out of the race earlier today, which leaves Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Ron Paul in the running. By any reasonable estimate, Paul still doesnt stand a chance and Newt wont mount a serious challenge barring divine intervention. Were left with Willard Romney the open socialist, who stands against everything we believe in as conservatives. There are many among us who refuse to vote for him. We who feel this way must unite behind a third party if were going to accomplish anything. If we dont, were no better than the party-line...

    In comments that can be seen as an effort to intimidate Florida's special state prosecutor Angela Corey with nationwide race riots, Benjamin Crump, an attorney for the family of slain 17 year-old black Floridian Trayvon Martin warned of "pandemonium" around America and the world should Corey decide to not prosecute admitted Martin killer George Zimmerman, who has claimed self-defense. Crump issued the dire warning in an interview with BBC5. In a case that has inflamed racial tensions across the United States and drawn global attention, the unarmed Martin was shot to death by Zimmerman on February 26 as he walked...
  • (Vanity) Buffet Rule: House GOP Should Pass Retroactive, Temporary, 2012 Only Buffet Rule

    04/10/2012 12:20:51 PM PDT · by indianrightwinger · 7 replies
    We should call the "Bluff" and simply pass a temporary one-year Buffet Rule tax, retroactive to January 2012. Make the case that we should give it a try, and that all taxes can be considered in 2013 after the election is over. Give Obama his biggest political victory going into 2012 election. We all know what will happen if this dumbass tax is passed. Let it happen under his watch in this year. Not in 2013 or beyond.

    It pains me to write this, but I am a realist: Barack Obama is one-hundred-percent guaranteed to win the 2012 Presidential race, and there is precious little anyone can do about it.Please do not take this as a license to do nothing to prevent it. It is best that we go to our fate knowing we did all we could to stop it. We must know in deep in our core that all our hearts and souls were poured into thwarting the plans of this tyrant.However: allow me to present the reasons I know we are destined to have another...

    It just never ends. First, National Public Radio had a feature this morning on the race riots in Tulsa around 1921. The people involved in that incident were completely wrong and everyone knows it. No further discussion needed. However, why bring this up in the middle of severe racial tension in the nation? Is NPR trying to bring about a peaceful, with-justice resolution to the national wound? No way. It's all about politics and race now, values have nothing to do with it. The reporter in talking about that event, said, "....Oklahoma, where not a single county voted for Barak...

    Hello Freepers. I am a liberal democrat.. before y'all throw the barn at me because of this fact, I want to make one thing clear, as far as 2012 is concerned we are on the same side. I have been reading this site for about half a year now and even though I don't agree with most of this sites politics I do agree with one point, Romney must not be elected. I understand everyone here thinks the breaks will be cut if Obama is reelected but its also clear to most here that Romney would just be a slower...
  • Vanity: NY Daily News Spreading False Trayvon Martin Neo-Nazi Story? Trying To Start Race Riot?

    Im an old TV network newsie and thought I had seen some examples of liberal-slanted journalism, but this is the worst ever. There is a huge story now going viral over the internet, courtesy of the far-left New York Daily News. Its about to start race riots, and it is completely false. It's probably all a combination of liberal hate and a sick attempt to sell more papers. Jeff Schoep, head of a Detroit-based neo-Nazi group, told Riptide that some armed members of his organization are now READY TO patrol Sanford, Florida, scene of the Trevor Martin shooting. The story...

    FBI Statistics ^ | 4.6.12 | golux / FBI
    According to the FBI's most recent statistics, where available, twice as many whites are murdered by blacks, numerically, as blacks by whites in the U.S. In the case of 2010 (where reported) 447 vs 218. This means, statistically, that a black (man in this case) is well over 100% more likely to kill a white man than the other way around. BUT WAIT! This math is not complete. Let us also remember that blacks are a "minority" population, representing only 12.8% of the US population. Suppose not so different in Florida. If we devise a "killing per race per race...

    Once we realize that government statistics are badly flawed, or altogether bogus, we can use our empirical knowledge to understand the real situation. People who go to the store and buy things know that the deflation has never affected anything other than financial assets and real estate. The price of stocks (after inflation) and home values are dropping, while the price of everything else is soaring.

    Obama recent statements on the US Supreme Court Judicial Review: Obama: “ I'd just remind conservative commentators that for years what we've heard is, the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint — that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law,” Obama said. “Well, this is a good example. And I'm pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step.” ...... and....... Obama: “’I am confident,” announced the president of the United States, “that the Supreme Court will not take what would...

    Come May 8th and then of course November,we will be losing one of the strongest voices for conservatism that we have in the House, Mike Pence. We here in Indiana will be (hopefully) gaining him as Governor but we are also faced with the task of replacing his leadership in the 6th District. Not an easy task considering the legacy he will leave behind. I have examined all the candidates and have made my choice. Having made my choice, I am now shamelessly promoting him wherever and whenever I can. Don Bates Jr and his wife Amy have lived in...

    Just finished my annual online "Human Relations" training and had to come to FR to vent. Guess what the first example listed of "workplace violence" was? Right: Maj Hasan at Ft Hood. These people have the unmitigated call to lump this traitorous murdering coward in with incidents that involve love triangles and disgruntled employees. I wish I thought anybody with any clout would care about my outrage, but they'd probably want to start keeping an eye on ME...
