Interesting. Thanks for the perspective. And what do you think would happen if Gingrich opened marijuana legalization up as a topic for discussion?

Hmm, not sure. It seems kind of a side-issue considering the current situation we're in as a whole, so would that be wise to bring up? From what I recall, I think Newt has said he'd be cautious about legalizing it, though I can't find any specifics on what his current position is.

I have some very conservative friends, many of whom have used pot at least a few times in their lives, and most of them are of the opinion that our marijuana laws are draconian, though they do worry about the impact on usage of harder drugs if it were legalized.

They are draconian, I agree. Personally, I'd rather drugs in general be decriminalized—prior to the early 20th century, there were little to no laws regulating substance use, and society didn't fall apart.

Just in case any of those friends of yours are considering Romney, they might change their mind after this video. What an ass.

I suspect the late reports(Just in time for the SC primary...heh heh!) that Santorum has actually won Iowa was the work of the power brokers who are dismayed that Romney is losing steam. Newt scares them but the only guy left after Romney to counter Newt is “Squeaky Clean” moderate Santorum. Cain would have been a good counter but they mistakenly “shot their load” in getting him out of the race too early!

Newt will get the nomination and perhaps the presidency...but will it already be too late to do any good before our land plunges into fiscal chaos and perhaps civil war?

Sarah Palin’s sweet revenge, Romney made couple of big mistakes
1) Spread rumors against Sarah before 2008 election closed
2) Spread second round of rumors against her character (she came out just wearing towel etc)
3) During 2011, they attacked her again, she came out and asked them to Shut up.
4) To keep her out of election, he used his money and moved dates up in couple of states.

End result, what we are seeing, a smooth sailing is now a deep slide for Romney.
Romney made a big big mistake

Newt Gingrich owned a consulting company and had a contract with Freddie Mac. He worked on contract for about 6 years and earned about $250,000 per year. Freddie Mac chose to terminate the contract.

Quite bluntly, he got his money the old fashioned way - he earned it!

As a small child he witnessed his father beating and abusing Newt’s mother. She divorced him, remarried, and Newt was adopted by his step dad. Later he was sexually molested by a high school teacher. Yeah, the first wife he married because she became pregnant and he felt obligated. Today, such women would go to prison as sexual predators.

The story about his second wife, Marianne Ginther, has been in the news lately. They were married 18 years and serperated twice, the final time for six years before admitting defeat and asking for a divorce.

This man was carrying a troubled emotional burden while serving in Congress but he sought counseling, joined AA and eventually turned his life around after a religious conversion.

And you denigrate him?

What I’ve found shocking is the enormous number of so-called Christians here at Free Republic who are nothing of the sort.

Christians are not better than other people. They forgive others, ask forgiveness for themselves, and try to lead a better life by not sinning further. I’m not disgusted with Newt Gingrich, who I believe has honestly changed his life. I’m disgusted with the bigots who claim they are Christian but do not put it into daily practice.

“...After only four years with his Party still in power, his own members forced him out...”

Oh yeah, and many of those Republicans are still in Congress. They are part of the ongoing problem of business as usual in Washignton, D.C. Under a Republican president, they added over $3 trillion to the federal deficit, shunned conservative policy in favor of Beltway influence-peddling, and so damaged the GOP brand that we lost the majority Gingrich had worked years to forge. They’re no doubt pooping in their silk panties at the thought of Newt Gingrich as President, for he has stated repeatedly that he intends to change Washington, D.C.

Do you really think I give a damn that Newt’s fabulous colleagues think his reemergence would be a disaster for Republicans? No. The elections of 2010 were NOT a merit promotion; the Republicans were the only alternative in town!

Washington is broken, it doesn’t work the way it is supposed to and Newt said, if elected, he will work to change the way Washington does business. You better believe the elitists who suck money off of government contracts are terrified he will be elected.

He knows where the bodies are buried.

He knows where the skeletons are hidden.

He knows about the hidden tract ways and byways by which influence peddling moves.

When a middle-class citizen is elected to Congress and returns home 20 years later a multi-millionaire, it is due to corruption in government.

Newt Gingrich has not advocated blanket amnesty for illegal aliens. He will enforce our immigration laws, complete the fence, and strengthen our border defenses. The immdediate result will be million of illegal aliens self-deporting as has happened before.

What you perceive as amnesty is actually our already existing laws being enforced. An illegal alien from Mexico married to a U.S. citizen for 25 years with children born in the U.S. and registered as U.S. citizens, will have a high probability of receiving preferential treatment by INS. If that person is deported s/he will be returning shortly because of having U.S. relatives. It is the way the laws work.

Two married illegal aliens with children born in the U.S. - that is a differnt matter. Families should be kept together and all members deported, period.

Nothing you will say, which I believe is biased and flat-out wrong, has any effect on my belief that Newt Gingrich is the only candidate with true leadership ability who can and will change Washington, D.C. He isn’t perfect. Who is? But I believe at this time, at this juncture in our nation’s history, he can lead this country away from the abyss of socialism and economic collapse.

Newt was a man of modest means when elected to Congress, now he is a multi millionaire, super rich. I find it very curious how many people go to D.C. with modest wealth and leave super rich. Can some one explain to me how that works? TIA.

“How is it conservative to vote for a three times married man”

It seems to me that Newt got an annulment and married his wife in the church. That means his previous marriages were declared invalid. He’s married to his first (current) wife. The first two, in the eyes of the Church (GOD) never happened.

I guess it hasn’t dawned on you that debates have absolutely dominated this election cycle. And they will continue to do so.

Until the general election, that is. When there may be no debates, at all.

If Newt is the GOP nominee, it obviously behooves the Zero to avoid any and all debates. Clearly, he would be able to do so without any adverse criticism from the MSM.

There is no law requiring debates. Nor is there any set format -- allowing one side to negotiate...and negotiate...and negotiate...until the point is moot.

Cain would have been a good counter but they mistakenly “shot their load” in getting him out of the race too early!

That's because the take-down on Cain was not the work of RINO power brokers. That Cain attacks had obamao's fingerprints all over them.

The man has written or co-written 23 books, selling millions of books.

During his peak years, he gave about 80 speeches a year, earning $60,000 to $100,000 per speech.

He has also started many companies that earned millions in revenue.

Unlike the other super-rich politicians, this man actually earned his wealth.

Did he use whatever advantage he could, sure. But so did you to get to where you are today. He was just fortunate to have more advantages in life in this area than you or I.

Newt Gingrich left Congress in the mid-1990s and later built three consulting businesses. He earned his fortune.

One of the great advantages Newt Gingrich has is that he was, at one time, at the center of political power in Washington and then left to work in the private sector. He saw the corruption first-hand, and after he left and worked as a consultant this gave him plenty of time to really see what government looks like from the outside. Thus he has said Washington, D.C., is broken and he will change the way Washington works.

Per Jim Robinson:

Newt’s rebirth agenda: Repeal Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, and Sarbanes-Oxley! Fire the czars! Fire Bernanke! Neuter the Fed and the EPA! Shutter Health, Education, Housing, Labor, Energy, etc. (can’t remember them all). Return the 185 some odd socialized federal welfare programs to the states and the people where they can either control them locally or shut them down. Privatize social security and Medicare and or return them to the states and the people. Go to a personal flat tax of 15% after deductions. Reduce the corporate tax rate to 12.5%. Eliminate the capital gains tax. Eventually eliminate the payroll tax after social security is privatized and phased out.

By the way, there do exist some folks who go to the nation’s capital and go home broke.

” What I’ve found shocking is the enormous number of so-called Christians here at Free Republic who are nothing of the sort.”

Without being too blatant, let me remind you that a great number of Romney’ s “christian” supporters, come from a background of belief that you are saved by your “righteousness”. Forgiveness in their belief is overshadowed by works. In their eyes Newt is outside the fold, while Mitt is a good, squeaky clean, tithe paying, temple recommended “righteous” man.

SC momentum appears to be with the Speaker but I'll wait for the votes to be counted. I'm hoping his "win" is decisive and none of this "split decision" Iowa stuff.

The risk of these late polls is those who might like Santorum because of the ex-wives, but were going to vote Newt to stop Romney, might reconsider the need and actually undermine the movement against Mitt.

New Mexico's Susan Martinez Among Possible GOP Vice Presidential Candidates Gingrich/Martinez 2012

Not going to happen:

Gov. Susana Martinez’s name came up high on Mitt Romney’s list of potential running mates during a national interview Friday, and the New Mexico governor seemed to say no thanks once again. Martinez’s office issued a familiar-sounding response.

“As the governor has repeatedly said, she is committed to focusing on turning New Mexico’s economy around and providing for a better education for our kids,” said governor’s spokesman Scott Darnell.

“She has no interest in serving as vice president and will not be a candidate for the position,” Darnell said.

Right, so we better elect Paul or Romney instead.

With a little luck from the weather, and if this trend holds, Newt should win tonight.

I was able to reverse-engineer the PPP individual daily numbers from what PPP published, and these matched the ARG trend.



I didn't include the Clemson poll because they included too many undecided voters too close to the election, but I was able to normalize Clemson by a common correction factor and then their results DID fit this curve nicely as well.

Thankfully, Santorum may not be a spoiler and force this winner-take-all contest to flip to Romney!!!


And THANK YOU Sarah Palin, Governor Perry, and Jim Robinson for adding your support this week to Newt's momentum!

Onyx, Satin Doll has posted several answers to frequently expounded anti-Newt freepers’ comments that we often see on other threads.
Thought maybe others would like to see them.

I appreciate the information on the first marriage. It was a situation I had suspected, but I didn't have the facts handy. Looks like today wife number one would be in jail. Satin Doll, the FBI report of Mariann said she was "mentally unstable". Is there a possibility that Newt did not press the divorce, stayed separated for those six years so that she could get the mental help she needed?

Rebellion is brewing!!

We should rebuild the grassroots conservative movement. From the Reagan Revolution of 1980 through the Contract with America in 1994, it was this movement from outside Washington that carried us to the first center-right majority governing coalition in more than 60 years.

The problem has not been with conservatism or with our voters.

The problem has been with Republican leaders who forgot who elected them and what values their supporters expected to see implemented in Washington.

Amazing the lack of imagination from any talking head who thinks he’s saying something by coming up with this “women hate Newt” meme.

“Newt will get the nomination and perhaps the presidency...but will it already be too late to do any good before our land plunges into fiscal chaos and perhaps civil war?”\

He can probably do a lot to slow down the trend on the social/police state front. Fiscal front, I think the US is at the point of no return, but it may impact how fedgov behaves when the dollar begins to tank. He can also possibly appoint some supreme court justices. He could potentially do a LOT to stop DHS’s apparent mission to be the internal security force vs. citizens in its tracks, though I don’t know if he will take that on.

The US is pretty close to the point where someone makes a power play that cannot be returned to position normal, though. Think Marius/Sulla, and be terrified.

We took the kids in July of 2008, over the 4th to boot for 10 days, it was GREAT. They were 11 & 14 at the time . . . figured we better go before it was invaded by the Dem’s. Fun family time! Won’t go back until the GOP re-takes the White House and hopefully the Senate too. Both kids preferred to go as a “family” trip vs. a 4 day whirlwind school trips with their middle school for way too much money for what they’d have seen vs. our family version.

By the way . . . the then 14 yr. old just turned 18 two weeks ago today and will be casting her first vote in the primary come March. One more vote for “our team”.
