Sarah Palin was my first choice for president, but the left, the GOP establishment and many right here on FR wouldnt have it. They trashed her and her family relentlessly with some of the unholiest filth and disgusting lies imaginable. Even so, I did little about it. I felt it was best to let the debate run its course on FR and that the best hard nosed conservative would rise to the top. Well, they drove her completely out and she didnt run. Didnt want to subject her family to such horrific pain and suffering. And who can blame her?
Then one by one, they turned their guns on and did the same thing to Gingrich, Perry, Bachmann, Cain and Santorum driving their support numbers down and Perry, Cain and Bachmann completely out of the race. As each one took their successive turns as our leading non-Romney conservative, they were relentlessly attacked, trashed and driven out.
Looked like we were repeating 2008 and were going to be stuck with a sure loser RINO again and Obama would waltz in for a second destructive term. Were now running out of qualified conservative candidates and Ill be damned if Im going to allow Free Republic to be used to drive out our last remaining best conservative shot of defeating both Romney and Obama!!
Then a funny thing happened. Newt Gingrich, whom theyd destroyed and left for dead, arose from the grave and began smiting the heathen. Hes back as a born again hard as nails, no nonsense, bad ass battle scarred veteran of two greatly successful conservative revolutions--the Reagan Revolution of the 80s and then his own Republican Revolution of the 90s--and he's kicking godless RINO ass!!
I'm all in with the Gingrich Rebellion!!
Ive looked at Newts plan. Its Reagans plan on steroids. Radically reduce government, regulations, taxes, spending and the deficit! Restore constitutionally limited government! Restore states rights, restore individual rights, restore economic freedom! Restore superiority through superior firepower and restore American exceptionalism! Whack and dethrone the dictatorial liberal activist judiciary! Get the government the hell off our backs, out of our lives and out of our religion, and stop the wholesale slaughter of the innocent unborn!!
In short, restore our God-give unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness!!
We are the sovereigns!!
Now what is there not to like?
The GOP establishment claims that Newt is too extreme and not electable. That he will be unacceptable to evangelicals, women and the so-called independents.
Well, I guess South Carolina put the lie to that rubbish. Newt Gingrich won the majority of every important demographic category, including seniors, evangelicals, women AND the independents!! The only demographic Romney took was the LIBERALS! Now, why is that?
Newt has the support of the conservative base, the tea party rebels, the evangelicals and the independents and we are forming a Reaganesque coalition to defeat the GOP establishment RINO and the Obama Marxists!!
And now Newt is the leading Republican in the national polls. Guess the GOP establishment is full of baloney on that one, too (as usual).
"Electability" (as defined by the GOP-E) gave us Ford and Dull and McLame. Voting for the crazy right-wing extremist gave us Ronald Reagan!!
They dismissed us before. They denied us, denigrated us, trashed us, tried to ignore us, but now they FEAR us!! And they should.
When the people fear the government there is tyranny.
When the government (or the GOP establishment in this case) fears the people, there is Liberty!!
Fear of the people is a good thing.
The Declaration of Independence explains that government derives its "just powers" from the consent of the governed and clearly lays out our recourse when government becomes abusive or destructive to our freedom and God-given Liberty:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
I say alter it then!! The government is clearly out of its constitutional bounds!!
Secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity!!
We are rebels seeking to take back our freedom or arent we?
Rebellion is ON!!
Join or die!!
Dont tread on me!!
May God continue to Bless America and may our Liberty be completely restored!!
Keep it coming, folks, we are the resistance!!
Thank you all very much!!
No, Thank YOU, J.R.! Thank you VERY much.
Thank you very much!!
OPEN ALL NIGHT!!
Thank you Jim for being here for all of us.
You know I’m a monthly but this month I donated twice. Could have waited, but chose not to. It fairly scares me to death to think of my world without Free Republic. Seriously.
I can’t do much, but I can so some and some is better than none.
Thank you, Jim. Free Republic is my family.
68 New Monthly Donors!!!
Who's going to be #69?
Thank You, NMD!!!
REBELLION IS ON!
Sarah was my first choice too, and still is. The reason I’m hoping for a Newt win in Florida is simply to stop Romney from becoming the inevitable candidate. I’m not as convinced as you seem to be that Newt is the Great Conservative Hope. Come convention time, I hope none of ‘em have a clear majority of delegates, and that someone else can be brought in to be voted for. Some have floated the idea of Mitch Daniels, but I’m still “bitterly clinging” to the idea that Sarah might yet ride in on her white horse and save us. I won’t be for Newt until he is the de facto established nominee.
No thanks to me - all thanks go to Jim Robinson...
But the sentiment is correct...
Thank you, Sir.
Newt completely won me over with the townhall yesterday. I still want to see a huge involvement by Perry in the next administration, but there is now no question in my mind that Newt understands the heart and soul of America.
The USA IS exceptional. A risky experiment in democracy and decency by brave and educated founders who trusted the people, it not only survived, but thrived. Dared to not only dream, but act on those dreams and pull the rest of the world along with them.
Mr. Gingrich gets that. Then he articulates it and makes it new and exciting again.
