  • RNC Convention Speakers Feature Rice, Martinez, Haley in Star-Studded Lineup

    Sounds like fun already ... the Tampa Bay Times released the names of some of the speakers slated for the RNC convention in Tampa later this month, and it looks to be a promising lineup. The Times reported that, as of now, it's unclear where these speakers are slotted, and the rest of the lineup--including the keynote speaker--remains unknown. Names so far include conservative powerhouses New Mexico Gov. Susanna Martinez and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Florida Gov. Rick Scott is also speaking. Here's a portion of the Times report: Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Sen. John McCain and former Secretary...

    As a staunch Conservative, Romney is MY MAN! I am aware that many conservatives, Tea Party, and strict constitutionalists, have deep apprehension about Romney.. That is mostly based on what he actually did as the Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007.. Past facts, are almost always the very best indicator of the true intent of a future development.. I couldn't agree more.. FACTS: Mitt Romney, is a fine husband and father, and was and is also a successful and an astute businessman, for a much longer period of time, than a one term Governor.. FACTS: Mitt Romney, has a...
  • Free Republic Has Become a Cult of ZOT!

    FR seems to have taken on many of the cult like attributes the cabal of anti-Mormon critics here ceaselessly and falsely subscribe to Mormons. I’ll follow the tactics of these folks in describing why FR is a cult. To start I’ll come up with my own definition of ‘cult’ and then follow up with a series of points selectively chosen to suit my own agenda. I’ll follow this model so as at to not confuse the usual suspects since the pattern of circular logic will be so familiar to them. A ‘cult’ is defined as an organization that: - Bears...
  • [ Virgil ] Goode: Ruling will not affect his campaign

    By BULLETIN, AP REPORTS - Former congressman Virgil Goode said Tuesday that a judge’s determination that a Virginia election law is unconstitutional will not affect his candidacy for president. U.S. District Judge John Gibney on Monday struck down a law that allowed only state residents to circulate petitions to get presidential candidates on the general election ballot. Ruling in favor of the Libertarian Party of Virginia, Gibney said the restriction severely burdened the party’s freedom of speech and is not narrowly tailored to promote a compelling state interest. Goode, who lives in Rocky Mount and formerly represented the 5th District...
  • An Eagle Scouts Returns Medals (Romney reaffirms opposition to Boy Scout Ban on Homosexuals)

    Associated Press via Wooster Daily Record ^ | August 3, 2012 | DAVID CRARY
    NEW YORK (AP) -- For the physician in Illinois, the attorney in Kentucky, the arts editor in Oregon, their Eagle Scout medals were treasured reminders of youthful achievement. Yet each is parting with his medal out of dismay over the Boy Scouts' recently reaffirmed policy of excluding gays. ### In contrast to Obama, Republican candidate Mitt Romney does have a public position on the Scouts' policy -- he politely disagrees with it. Back in 1994, during a political debate in Massachusetts, Romney said this: "I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to...

    Via the Examiner, I understand why he punted here. His retort to Reid's tax-evasion smear last night was that it's an obvious, grotesque attempt to hand the media a new distraction from Obama's record. He just got back from a foreign policy trip/photo op that was also submerged in distractions, most notably his Olympics comments in London and his aide's "kiss my ass" comments to the press in Poland. He's just begun pushing a more positive message keyed to his biography to convince undecideds that he's up to the job. The last thing he wants right now is another distraction...
  • A Mitt Romney loss wouldn’t necessarily be a disaster

    The Daily Caller ^ | August 3, 2012 | Matt K. Lewis
    Don’t buy the doom and gloom pronouncements from conservatives telling you, “this is the most important election in history.” A loss for Mitt Romney would not necessarily spell long lasting disaster for Republicans, nor would it be the death-knell to conservatism. In fact, it’s possible a 2012 loss could lay the groundwork for a stronger Republican party and conservative movement. Elections are almost always seen as urgent and morally imperative. But sometimes major victories can only come in the aftermath of what appear to be devastating defeats. John Kerry‘s loss in 2004 laid the groundwork for a Democratic takeover in...

  • Why I’m Voting for Mitt Romney and Why You Should Too

    07/27/2012 3:37:16 PM PDT · by Signalman · 363 replies ^ | 7/27/2012 | Gary DeMar
    The first reason is easy: Barack Obama. It is shocking to think that a Marxist could ever be president of the United States. But it happened. People always ask, “How could those people have sat back while ________________ came to power. That could never happen here.” Well, it did happen here. As a nation, we sat back and let Barack Obama win in 2008, and look at what we got. Granted, John McCain was not much of an alternative. Some people might argue that the reason I don’t like Barack Obama is because he’s black. There’s no truth it. There...

    Red State ^ | 7/24/2012 | Erick Erickson
    The casual consumer of news hears it all the time and not just from Democratic pundits. Reporters, pundits, and concern trolls in the media fret that Romney has had to move too far right. He’s just too conservative. These same people never stop to examine Barack Obama. Between the two, Barack Obama has repeatedly surrounded himself with people who actually don’t much care for the United States. Writing that may anger people, but it is actual, factual, fact. Instead of considering if Mitt Romney is too far to the right, perhaps we should consider if Barack Obama is too far...

    In 2010, Paul Gosar was elected to represent Arizona’s 1st congressional district in the U.S. Congress. With the help of a much-publicized endorsement from Sarah Palin, he rode to victory on the wave of resentment against Washington that fueled what came to be called the tea-party movement. Given this background, I naturally paid attention when I ran across a YouTube video in which Gosar told a gathering of conservative activists, “If all you’re going to do is stand just for the Constitution and nothing less, you will lose. … Because not everybody believes in the Constitution.” (For a written report...

    During a Bowling Green, Ohio, town hall on Wednesday, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney assured a tea party supporter that his pick for VP will be "a conservative," and responded quickly to an "angry mom" who called the president a "monster" that he wouldn't use that term.

    (BOWLING GREEN, Ohio) -- Back in May, Mitt Romney was criticized for not immediately rebuking a woman at a town hall who said President Obama “should be tried for treason” with democrats saying he stood “silently” during attacks on the president. But Wednesday, during a town hall in the battleground state of Ohio, Romney didn’t miss a beat when one woman referred to Obama as a job-killing “monster.” The woman, who did not identify herself to the crowd more than saying she is an “angry mom,” was telling Romney about her son’s struggling business and said, “He’s had to lay...

    10 Questions to ponder to why there has not been more discussion about these topics in this election cycle: 1) Have you ever wondered why there is little talk or discussion of the results of the 2010 midterm election in respect to the 2012 election, especially the fact that conservatives represented 42% of the electorate in 2010, 8 points higher than 2008 and that increase in self-identified conservatives should be exploited by Team Romney? 2) Have you ever wondered why there is little talk or discussion of Mitt Romney in most national polls not passing McCain's popular vote in 2008...

    I'm sorry folks, but a man who can justify and rationalize in his own mind the wholesale slaughter of innocent human life can justify any kind of evil whatsoever. And he has. He's justified homosexual marriage, homosexuals in the Boy Scouts, homosexuals in the military. That homosexual couples should be able to adopt children. He's justified that guns are dangerous and should be banned. That free citizens should be forced by the government to purchase insurance contracts against their will or face stiff penalties or taxes. That mandated forced socialized healthcare is a good thing. That abortion should be safe...

    As Alan Keyes wrote the other day, you cannot fight evil with evil. If you haven't read it, do yourself a favor: A Choice Between Satan and Beelzebub (FR thread) Brief excerpt: I grieve deeply as I contemplate the fact that millions of Americans are letting themselves be caught in this diabolical snare. As I tried to point out in 2008, the lesser of evils is still evil. No matter how such an election turns out, people content to choose between Satan and Beelzebub have made clear their willingness to let things go to hell. Moreover, the nature of their...

    WND ^ | 7/12/12 | Alan Keyes argues against 'fighting evil with evil' by voting for Romney
    Recently I heard a friend of mine echo the sentiment former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker expressed in an interview with WND: “I would vote for the devil himself over Barack Obama.” People say this to make clear how deeply they abhor Obama and all his works. Sadly, for them and for America, their passionate hatred of Obama puts them exactly where the devil wants them to be. The Father of Lies chuckles with satisfaction. He gloats triumphantly at the fact that their hatred of his appearance in one form has maneuvered them into supporting his triumph in another. I...

  • Vote for Romney is a vote for Communism and baby-killing

    07/16/2012 12:57:11 PM PDT · by JimWayne · 283 replies
    No matter who wins the election in November, a Communist will occupy the White House. However, a Romney win has an added disadvantage. It will strengthen the Communist grip over the GOP. Right now, there is a struggle between the Tea Party and the Trotskyite neocons for the control of the GOP. If Romney is defeated, it will give a boost to the Tea Party. If he wins, it could be over for the Tea Party. The RINO GOP establishment has opposed every Tea Party candidate and has ganged up with the Democrats whenever it seemed like a Tea Party...
