I'm officially endorsing Newt Gingrich for President today.

I'm officially endorsing Newt Gingrich for president today. Was going to wait until after Florida, but see no reason to delay. We need Newt to win in South Carolina and Florida to stop any possible momentum building up for the establishment big government, statist, abortionist RINO!!

RomneyCare = ObamaCare = government tyranny!! Taxpayer funded abortion is as evil as evil can be!!

Newt is a pro-life Reagan Revolution conservative who led the Republican Revolution of the 90’s, taking the majority away from the democrats who had held it for 40 years. And as Speaker, cut the taxes, cut the government, cut the spending, cut the deficit, cut regulations, cut unemployment, brought the federal budget under control for four years running. And unlike Romney, actually blocked a socialist healthcare system from becoming law. And created a pro-growth, pro-free market, pro-jobs environment and extended the Reagan economy throughout the 90’s!! Newt is the ideal candidate to lead the Tea Party Revolution!!

Newt plans to go to a 15% personal flat tax after deductions and a 12.5% corporate tax and eliminate the capital gains taxes altogether. He wants to privatize social security and medicare and eliminate the payroll tax.

And he wants to neuter the EPA and the Fed. Repeal ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley. Fire all of the czars, dismantle the Marxist state and fire if not jail Bernanke. And send 185 federal socialist welfare programs back to the states and the people, and return education back to local control.

Newt will directly challenge the liberal activist judiciary and end the unconstitutional power grabs of our usurping black robed rulers.

He wants to restore the constitutional balance of powers between the three branches and restore states rights and individual rights. He wants to turn government control back to the states and local people as the founders set it up.

These are the kind of dramatic reductions in government that the tea party is demanding.

And he has the knowledge, experience, know how, fire in the belly, and the balls to get it done!!

In short, I believe he's exactly what we grassroots conservative tea party rebels are looking for. I think we can use some of Newt’s conservative revolutionary talents right now!!

As long as the conservatives remain split, the establishment RINO Romney will waltz in just like McLame in 2008 and he will lose to Obama just like McLame. It's time to build the Gingrich Coalition!!

FR is hereby officially in full open rebellion against the elite GOP establishment and the Marxist commiecrats!!

Go, tea party!! Go, Newt!!

We are the resistance!!

Damn the torpedoes, damn the RINOs, damn the exes!! Full speed ahead!!

Free Republic is and will remain a pro-life, pro-family, limited government, strong defense, grassroots conservative site!!

RINOs need not apply!!

Happy Newt Day!! Only 366 days until President Newt evicts Obama!!

Good points but I’m still not on board. Newt might get my vote if he selects a young CONSERVATIVE running mate (rules out Sarah BTW) but as it is now my focus is local and state.

God bless and I hope you all prove me wrong, Newt wins and becomes a great president, but the problem isn’t so much with the Presidency as it is with the Congress and the mindless masses who support it.

BTW and totally sincere I am right now sending in my FR contribution.

Let’s also face the fact that it’ll be a lot more fun to see Newt parodied on SNL for 4 years than dull-as-dirt Barry and Willard.

If Newt governs the way he speechifies, I'm very cool with that.

If he doesn't, I will be furious.

” Why not Santorum? Just aksin. :) “ <<<

A good man on the demise of the family in the USA, and on social oncerns. He wraps himself in those issues for red meat tossed to us, and it obscures his liberal alliances and liberal voting record on legislative issues. It’s not our fault he represented liberal Pennsylvania and pleased them very much on too many occasions, or that he dutifully backed Specter over Toomey, or that he is beholding to the Establishment RINOS for his career and indebted. Neither the LEFT, nor the RINOS fear Santorum. They both fear NEWT.

Newt is indebted to NEWT. He has had damn little help from the RINO wing, who despise him nearly as much, and maybe more than the LEFT whom he rolled regularly, in ‘94, with that historic Republican sweep of the House, after 40 years in the desert.

From a previous thread today......

If there truly is a “swingers” vote, Newt gets another bump. (no pun intended)

And if there’s a “divorced” vote, bump Newt up yet another five!

But if there’s a “I can’t stand my ex-wife” vote, Newt beats the Mormon by a LANDSLIDE!!!

It’s so odd - from a pretty much marganized and washed up old hack to our seeming best hope to first derail Romney and then drive Obama back to Chicago or somewhere...anywhere other that 1600 Penn Ave.

The wife and I came to the same conclusion a while back. It still feels surreal to me, though.

“The RINO powerful have come to the conclusion that Obama, due to vote fraud, MSM backing, the size of his war chest, and his willingness to break any rule or law.. will prevail in November. And so they bring forth yet another weak candidate to hopefully lose gracefully and perhaps enable them to retain some power in the House and Senate and thereby maintain access to the perks of power.”

The Rinos would rather have a narrow victory or defeat, in order to save face, if they lose. They are not willing to put forth a choice which could result in an overwhelming victory sweep that includes Congress. They think they are playing it safe.

They would rather risk loosing with ObaRomney, than wind up with a Goldwater or Reagan. Rockefeller Republicans didn't like either one, and they are afraid of being embarrassed by a Goldwater type loss.

If George Washington had played it safe, he would have never crossed the Delaware, and we wouldn't be flying the American Flag.

I’m in for Newt, Jim!

To those who are hoping for a better conservative candidate... ain’t gonna happen. I understand, believe me... I have some problems with Newt’s history and character, but the real deal is that this is our best shot at a sane presidency. WAY better than Myth or Zer0.

As a Santorum supporter, I know that realistically the best decision for the country is for me to throw my support to Newt. Myth MUST be defeated... it would be as bad or worse than a Zer0 re-election. NOW is the time to get the candidate that truly has a chance to undo the damage that has been done.

NOW. Is the time.

Yep. Warts and all, he’s what we have left.

We all have warts. Newt's warts are on the end of his nose for the whole world to see while others warts are on their butts, hidden from the world.

That's the reason so many do not run for office, the desire to keep all their warts hidden.

Just watched a CNN report on Romney that was awful — said crowds are small for Romney in S. Carolina today, and he just wouldn’t readily answer media questions on the news of the day.

Oh well — onto Newt, who ALWAYS answers the question — telling you ALL you need to hear!!

Good luck in the debate tonight, Newt — will have to watch it on rewind ...

Okay Jim, give me a good answer to one question and I’ll switch from Santorum:

Why did his fellow, conservative congressmen vote him out of the speakership if he was such a great leader? How can you explain that away?

I really don’t care about Newt’s personal life. I don’t care about his silly global warming stunt with Nancy. I want to know he can actually lead the country and not just talk smart during debates. I can still remember the TV clip of speaker Newt talking about how they were going to let Medicare “wither on the vine.” The dems/MSM played it over and over and over. He was constantly saying stupid, arrogant things like that. I am afraid he’s going to do the same when he’s President. Tell me why I’m wrong...PLEASE!

” Vote Paul in Va. Deny Romney those delegates. “ <<<

Before we do that, read Erik’s own column, at Redstate.com
“Horserace for January 19”.

Seems some of Romney delegates are actually Paul supporters angling for a brokered convention, ready to surprise ALL and throw their support for RON PAUL after the first convention ballot where they must commit to Romney. The second ballot frees delegates from their commitment. They then vote for RON PAUL.

Paul volunteers are said to have been working over the last few years at even the precinct level for delegates. They may be under anyone’s name but can and will flip. To what extent this is large numbers, or will be effective is anyone’s guess.

JIMROB: I am on board with this. Had some leaning toward Cain until he blew up, and have been rooting for Newt ever since. If that Jim Thompson guy will toss out an endorsement, maybe we’ll get some media coverage.

As for women’s votes: Clinton never lost his popularity with women, and he was (IMHO) much, much worse as to his indiscretions. Women are very concerned with the economic future of this country, and the tax burdens that will be placed on our children and grandchildren due to the debts and deficits. Newt will appeal to their need to know that someone will (finally) be looking out for the future.

I am on board too.

Last week I saw a youtube where Newt stated he would outright repeal: ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley. He wants the bills for repeal on his desk right way.

That sounds bold and if he accomplishes that, it would be good for our Republic.

Jim, I'm with you on this one. Santorum's pro-SOPA comments essentially and permanently put him at odds with FreeRepublic (not to mention almost every computer literate young person in America).

Newt is not perfect. But he is the only anti-Romney now who has a chance of stopping the Mittster and, at the same time, can defeat Zero in a general election.
