I see you are a proud Navy vet. Thank you for your service. Not surprising that you support Newt. So many of our military are supporting him. Those who pur their lives on the line, instinctively recognize a leader.
You couldn't be more right. Even with Newt's baggage, he is a leader and produces results. He is one of the few politicians that talks the talk, and walks the walk. Didn't know our military is supporting him. Got stats?
BTW, Romney whines that Newt is a DC insider? I say good, because he is one of the few insiders who has the experience, the hardened fortitude, and the wisdom of history behind him, not to mention his solid beliefs in our system.
Newt knows what has gone wrong with this nation and is trying to let all know what is killing this wonderful experiment the Founding Fathers devised. Newt is trying to remind us that we ARE the, "shining city on the hill", like Reagan said.
WE NEED ONLY TO REDISCOVER OUR ROOTS OF THIS NATION, that changed the world for the better, and Newt believes that within his heart! Since 1787, our Constitutional principles have been the guiding light for all oppressed peoples throughout the world. Simple fact of history. No one ever talks about that (other than Newt) and how many nations have used our example to develop their own system of "government by the people".
If Newt does not get the nomination, then I think all is loss. Congress has given up their balance of power to the Executive branch and we will see the worse of bambi, or even Romney. I can foresee Mittens actually vetoing Congressional bills that downsize fedgov intrusion.
