Skip to comments.One hundred thousand people wanted to fb "Like" Newt Gingrich onto the Virginia ballot
Posted on 12/24/2011 7:49:29 PM PST by Jim Robinson
I just started a new facebook page as a place for grassroots conservatives to urge Virginia to allow the leading Republican contender for the presidency onto the Virginia ballot. Gingrich is the Republican leader nationwide and in Virginia! It's absolutely ludicrous, if not criminal, for Virginia to deny the conservative base and tea party favorite a spot on the ballot while they promote their elite ruling class RINO!
Do not allow Virginia to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of conservative grassroots voters who would mark their ballots for Newt Gingrich! Adding insult to injury, they don't even allow write-ins on their ballots!
It truly is a one man election (disregarding the Ron Paul nutcake). You can vote for anyone you wish in Virginia as long as his name is Mitt Romney.
We need to write or call the Republican Party of Virginia to register our outrage and if you are a facebook user, please visit and "Like" the "Newt Gingrich on Virginia Ballot" page.
Thank you all very much, and Merry Christmas!!
Considering both Newt and Perry had at minimum a 20% buffer on the signatures they needed, we need to learn more about who was behind validating the signatures or collecting them. Something fishy is going on.
Great idea! Hillary hasn’t cornered all the smart power after all.
Jim, most happy to oblige.
Merry Christmas to the Robinson household.
You know what, the restrictive Virginia rules were tailor made for a single “not Romney” to take on Romney one on one.
You conservatives want Santorum and Bachman off the ballot, you got Santorum and Bachman off the ballot because they had no chance to qualify. Perry will be toast after Iowa and NH.
The rules in Virginia FAVORED GINGRICH AND HE BLEW IT.
The "rules" in Virginia favor(ed) Romney since
he was EXEMPT from the the "rules",
that made a "St." not a street ... to exclude the Speaker.
FReepers and America have watched
Team Romney 'hack' down Gov. Palin (and her children),
Mr. Cain, and previously Sen. Thompson, Gov. Huckabee,
... as Romney has helped and lauded Obama.
It is NO secret that the GOP is on open 'double secret probation'
and is about to go DOWN THE TUBES
and the way of the dinosaurs and Whigs.
By their choice ... and the 'helmlock' of Rove.
And given the lack of moral fiber of the lying RINOs
the sooner the better for America.
Registered my complaint here:
You people are absolutely nuts for trying to keep Newt Gingrich off the Virginia ballot! In case you haven’t noticed, Newt Gingrich is the leading Republican contender for the presidency nationwide and in VIRGINIA!! You are attempting to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of Republican conservatives in Virginia who would mark their ballots for Newt Gingrich. He’s a favorite among the conservative base and the tea party. And Rebellion is brewing!! Advise you get your act together and get him on the ballot!! This treachery will not be allowed to stand without a whole lot of blowback!! On YOU!!
I don’t care what it takes, but Virginia had best get his name on that ballot!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
"After verification, RPV has determined that Newt Gingrich did not submit required 10k signatures and has not qualified for the VA primary."
Then, ironically, it cheerfully advertises a "Grassroots breakfast and meet and greet with SPECIAL GUEST former Speaker, Newt Gingrich:"
And their rotating ad banner ends it with a "Not again in VA" message:
Yeah, Not again in Va! You betcha. These yahoos should get their act together pronto!
I'd like to see a few thousand grassroots conservatives and tea party people cheerfully "occupy" their offices.
Who is Joshua Leigh? My head almost exploded!
Romney will be that candidate and this "independent" conservative will be playing golf on election day.
Merry Christmas to you and yours, Boss!
bump good idea
Done and bumped. Merry Christmas and a Healthy Happy New Year!
Bump and pass it on.
I just went to Facebook and did the deed. GO NEWT!!!
Question! How did such a travesty become operative in Virginia? If 100,000 people voice for a candidate but there is no place for the person to be given a fair shake in an election??
Suggestion: This needs to be Re-posted around Mon. or Tues. after Christmas is over and people are back to normal.....more people on FR.
Shouldn’t that be simple enough for one of the frontrunners to accomplish? It’s not too much to ask that a candidate have broadbased support to get on the ballot and I’d think that this requirement should be easy to meet for any candidate polling above 5%. It seems to me that Newt has only himself and his organization to blame.
