GOP Race Evolves As South Carolina Draws Near

GOP Race Evolves As South Carolina Draws Near

As Saturday’s primary voting in South Carolina draws near, there have been some shake-ups in the 2012 Republican Presidential race.

When polls indicated that Ron Paul had a chance of a very strong finish in the Iowa caucus that took place earlier this month, many political insiders said that if he did, the results should be disregarded. The results initially showed Mitt Romney beating Rick Santorum by just eight votes and put Paul in third.

However, the Des Moines Register reported on Thursday that after a review of the results by the Iowa GOP, there are “too many holes in the certified totals” from the caucus to know for certain who really won — though Santorum came out 34 votes ahead by the final count. The results remain “unresolved” because GOP officials in the State say the results from eight precincts are missing, never to be recovered and certified, and that they discovered inaccuracies in the results of 131 precincts. The final decision by Iowa GOP officials was to call a “split decision” or “virtual tie” between Romney and Santorum.

Also on Thursday, Rick Perry abandoned his Presidential bid and endorsed the campaign of Newt Gingrich as an alternative to Romney for conservative voters. Political analysts say that it is unclear what weight Perry’s endorsement will carry for Gingrich; the Texas Governor was running last in polls of South Carolina voters before dropping out.

“I believe Newt is a conservative visionary who can transform our country,” Perry said at a press conference in South Carolina. “We have had our differences, which campaigns inevitably bring out. And Newt is not perfect, but who among us is?”

A Rasmussen poll of likely Republican voters in South Carolina conducted on Wednesday showed Gingrich leading in the State with 33 percent favorability.  In second place was establishment favorite Romney taking 31 percent followed by Paul’s 15 percent third-place finish. One-third (31 percent) of the likely voters polled said they could still change their minds before Saturday.

Santorum has reportedly been struggling to make a connection with South Carolina voters, but some political experts say that his Iowa upgrade may help him gain steam as the “anti-Romney” right before the primary. Establishment media have also said that Paul was showing lackluster campaign performance in South Carolina after he left the State last weekend to take a short break from campaigning and then traveled to Washington to vote against a debt-ceiling increase Wednesday.  The Paul campaign says that it expects to do well on Saturday because of its dedicated supporters.

Though many candidates have dropped out of the race, the South Carolina Election Commission said nine candidates (Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Gary Johnson, Paul, Perry, Romney and Santorum) will be listed on the ballot Saturday.

    Re-elect NO incumbants

    • c.scamman

      Skyraider, of course that is every district’s option with our system. Precisely why we do not need to invoke term limits on senators or representatives. I believe that some of the experienced people do have good ideas though and should not be punished just for having served two, four or six years (or longer).

      How do you believe a totally new, naive body of legislators would react? Do you think that maybe the lobbyists might have a field day? Or the lawyers serving corporate interests?

      There are some small steps that might be taken to revise our system, e.g. no riders on bills that do not explicitly relate to the intent of the legislation; sunset clauses on ALL legislation so that Congress would be so busy reviewing past legislation and bringing it into the existing needs they would have no time to dilly dally about thinking up useless new legislation to pass or requiring all new legislation that requires the expenditure of monies to wait until the following fiscal year to be funded before taking effect. No funding, no legislation.

      Painting with a broad brush as you would have us do can lead to some sloppy canvas work.

      • APN

        So how would you define the “Artwork” we have now in Washington?

  • Alex Frazier

    I was very happy with the debate last night, and the developements. I was glad to hear the audience boo the moderator when he tried the typical media nonsense by ignoring Ron Paul. I was entertained to watch Mitt Romney blow his lead by not being decisive about releasing his tax returns (giving many the impression that he has something to hide). I was pleased to hear Ron Paul lay out the China tariff issue and explain to the nation that the only thing it accomplishes is higher prices for our consumers. And above all else, I was tickled to hear Newt put Romney in his place concerning job creation. The business owner may open the business that creates the jobs, but it is the government that makes the economic and political climate feasible for the entrepreneur to open that business. When the government has bad policy, businesses fail. When it has good policy, businesses thrive. And since the president isn’t going to open a local Staples or Sports Authority, but rather needs to create the climate for such businesses to be opened by free market entrepreneurs, Mitt Romney’s claims to the accomplishments of these businesses is a moot point, and I’ve always thought so.

    • texastwin827

      I was very pleased to see how the crowd reacted, when they were about to skip Ron Paul on one of the questions, that the other 3 batted back & forth and rebutted each other, using the time Paul should have had.

      While Gingrich is not my choice (Ron Paul is) I also was glad to see him call the moderator on his choice for the first question of the debate. Even though this was a Republican debate, these “news” people, in charge of asking the questions, seem determined to work for the liberal agenda, doing what their politicians can’t do.

      Throughout the debate, I think the moderator was “put on notice” by the the crowd that they would not tolerate his BS. It’s not good PR to see a crowd boo the moderator, on a national broadcast. :-))

      • Old Henry

        texastwin:

        I got to wondering about an hour ago if Newt’s ex-wife pruposfully dropped that “bomb” at the time she did in order to get the expected reaction from the media and allow Newt to pummel them as he did in last night’s debate. That allowed Newt to cement in the public’s mind that he is the one to “take it to the enemy” with no holds barred. That created a very good contrast to Romney who is wishy-washy and seems to deflect everything in the debates.

        • APN

          Newt will take it to our Marxist enemies from within and WIN.

        • http://lamebrained-ideas.blogspot.com C.Davis

          O. Henry, I feel pretty confident that the whole thing was cooked up by ol’ “Turd Blossom” Karl Rove. The ex wife, the daughters, the Moderator’s question, the hosannahs from Perry and Palin, Everything. The result? Leroy’s indiscretions are forgotten while all the outrage is redirected to the mythical “liberal” media “persecuting” poor repentant “Newt” Now he’s the big GOP hero, once again Rove creates our reality for us. Pure political theater, not even very good theater, but good enough to befuddle the chattering masses. Kind of insulting, if you think about it. And all the players cynically laughing at their victims.

          • APN

            Let me get this straight, a very liberal moderator from a Marxist leaning network, conspired with Rove to set the stage for Newt to make both the moderator and the Marxist network look like the bumbling fools they are.

            Wow, what a complex conspiracy theory you have!

            Makes sense to me!

          • Old Henry

            C Davis:

            That sounds probable, but I don’t think the moderator was “in” on it. Those people are very predictable so I think once they put the first part into play they knew the liberal mdeia would run with it. Once done Newt simply chews them up. They essentially walked right into it.

          • APN

            Bottom line, Newt has what it takes to lead and this angers SOME people.

        • Jay

          My sentiments, exactly, Old Henry!

      • Fred

        If Ron Paul is not the nominee I will still write him in, no matter who the globalists and the PRESS wants me to support for Republican candidate. I have always voted a STRAIGHT Republican ticket, no matter who is running. Never again!. Fiercely independent now. The republicans should consider how strongly those that support Ron Paul hate the other government insiders that the press is forcing on us. I will NEVER AGAIN vote how the press wants me to, but I will vote the opposite way the press wants me to. I am so embarrassed by how the press acted in the last election!. after the way the press got the prez elected, shameless!. If Ron Paul won’t run on a independent ticket I will STILL give my vote to Ron Paul. Republicans should realize that mistreating Ron Paul in debates will send scores of people to the other side, to the Democrats. A 3 way fight for the presidency is assured if Ron Paul is not the Republican candidate or at least the Vice Prez candidate. Republican planners should note this opinion I have shared. Others feel the same way, and I write for those voting friends of mine also.

        • Patti

          Fred…just remember that a vote for anyone other than the GOP nominee IS A VOTE FOR OBAMA! Understand how you feel but the nation cannot afford another 4 yrs of Obummer. There is no perfect party and no perfect man.

          • Fred

            I will vote for Ron Paul no matter who is the republican nominee. So consider, that more Republicans will also do the same, and make sure Ron Paul wins the “nod”. Embrace those that support Ron Paul or lose their votes to some one else or a different party. Ron Paul could even be the vice prez nominee and I would vote for him for prez. Use my vote or lose it. Think you republicans, or be removed from office. The rest of the republicans would do good to adopt Ron Paul’s agenda to fix the US or be counted with the big government democrats, who we will be trying to remove from POWER, since they do not REPRESENT us but rather corps.. What is so wrong with Ron Paul? more people need to adopt this defense for the constitution and constitutionally limited FEDERAL POWERS as it was supposed to be. STATES RIGHTS have been trampled for too long. Time for the confederacy to succeed again.

          • APN

            Well put Patti and I agree with you completely!

          • Vic Bailey

            Just remember this a vote for a Monkey on a chain , is you want a White Bama or a Black Bama? Because if you vote for ANYBODY but Ron Paul, you will be getting the same thing a Socialist in the BIG HOUSE AGAIN! Semper Fi.

        • http://sorgesite.com dag sorge

          If Ron Paul doesnt get in, we will get more of the same as before. We need real Change only Ron Paul can give us.

          • Fred

            think, why does the media so abuse and ignore Ron Paul? Because they are deathly afraid of him. Why? You figure it out. But there is very good reason not to listen to the media spin on everything. They are bought and paid for and do as their masters want, like good slaves. Destroy America the great from inside. Their masters do not want America to be the shining spot for freedom in this world. Then they have to work harder to enslave the earths population, for their greed, and laziness. If there is no place to escape to freedom, this world will be a very dark place. But hey its your choice. Chose wisely.

        • Old Henry

          Fred:

          If Ron Paul is not running a write-in candacy you will most likely invalidate your ballot.

          I think we will be better served by voting for Gary Johnson on the Libertarian ticket. That way your votes for the other candidates will be counted.

          • Vic Bailey

            HOW can ANY American Citizen VOTE for a SON OF A BITCH, that YOU KNOW, DOESN’T CARE ABOUT YOU OR YOUR FAMILY AND COUNTRY!!!! If they did the litt old lady on Social Security gets paid $791.oo a month after working most her life,OH YEA, she has to pay $104.20 for Medicare Insurance Premium!! THEN A refugee (INVADER) gets an $1,850 allowence PLUS $580.oo a month Social Assistance! WTF, yet you all will vote another DICKHEAD in office all the while screwing over the citizens and KISSING THE ASSES OF THE INVADERS! WAKE THE HELL UP! Semper Fi.

    • eddie47d

      Newt seemed to duck and cover on his personal life.Although it’s not a major issue in how he treats his wives in comparison to economics you gotta love the hypocrisies. Gingrich is no more morally straight than Clinton yet even he made that a major issue back in the 90′s. I say either bring it on about all or or make it irrelevant for all.

      • APN

        DO WHAT EDDIE???? Duck and cover????? You must have watched a different debate last night than I did.

        • Alex Frazier

          No. Newt may have blasted the moderator, but recognize that some of that was to take the steam out of the question. By going on the offensive rather than the defensive, he neutralized what was otherwise a serious blemish on his character. He did answer the question, but he didn’t do much in the way of explanation. He just declared it false and offered his personal friends, whom we’ll never meet, as witnesses to the situation.

          • APN

            Well maybe you can get into his SOUL and tell us what the real deal is.
            I simply do not have those kind of omniscient powers. The fact is, using your logic, their is not a man or woman on this planet that is qualified to run for President, including Ron Paul.

          • eddie47d

            I’ve seen many here look into Obama’s SOUL and try and pick him apart. So apparently their crystal ball works in trying to bring up dirt. Gingrich is a chameleon like most politicians so I wasn’t surprised by his bobbing and weaving with his answer. Some would say it was a great power play and some will say it only brings up more questions about what he is hiding. Look how Cain denied accusations and ducked personal questions which only brought more women out of the woodwork.

          • APN

            Well Eddie, If you perceived Newt’s response as “Bobbing and Weaving”, well, I’m really not sure just how more candid and direct a person can be, so, your comments are baseless. i.e.; Typical liberal view of things.

            Remember Eddie, we did watch the debates, so this is a subject that cannot be rewritten by the LW Marxists.

    • http://comcast the fisherman

      Nothing but leftovers from the crap bowl

      • APN

        Well vote for Obama just like you did in 2008. I’m sure that will work out in YOUR favor!

  • Jonathan Gems

    Actually, the truth is Ron Paul took time off from campaigning in South Carolina to fight to safeguard the American people from UNLIMITED DETENTION WITHOUT TRIAL by contesting Obama’s paranoid and scary National Defense Authorisation Act.

    • Janice Nelson

      I am glad you pointed that out. Why is the media not recognizing why Ron Paul left his campaign to introduce legislation to repeal the NDAA. He was trying to protect the citizens from the possibility of military to pick one up and place in indefinite detention without due process possibly not to be heard from again based only on a suspicion. The President can make that decision on his own…The NDAA negates the Constitution. It is a slippery slope that could end badly. Ron Paul recognized this as should everyone in congress. We can not trust who ever we elect as President will not use the powers given in the NDAA as Romney said we should. We need people in office who will protect our constitutional rights for all.. if not than it will be used against the citizens of America eventually.

      • Fred

        The press does not want you to vote for Ron Paul. So that is reason enough to vote for him. The press is as crooked as a thief. And just as dirty with bribe money, if not more.

        • APN

          Well Fred, if you look at the attacks from the liberal media and the super packs of both Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, well, it appears to me that(ALL THOSE FOLKS), collectively, do not want us to vote for Newt.

          That’s just the way I see it.

          • Alex Frazier

            I didn’t want to vote for Newt when he was still sitting at 3% in the polls. I know his history. I know his politics. No amount of clever quips in debate are going to change the person he is, and the person he is can be defined by the actions he’s taken. He is everything Hollywood would paint a politician to be. Everything the American people truly despise in a politician. But people are simultaneously blinded by his clever wit.

            I’m not. Newt voted for the Patriot Act, and that’s all I need to know about the man. He’s a betrayer of the public trust who violated his oath of office. Rather than being on stage running for president, he should be in prison for his felonious perjury.

          • Fred

            Romney can not win against Obummer. Nute can not beat Obummer either. Ron Paul can beat the whole bunch if given fair press, good luck with that.

          • TML

            “Newt voted for the Patriot Act, and that’s all I need to know…”

            Here, here!

          • APN

            Well Alex, what felonious perjury. Be specific?

          • Jay

            Gingrich also admitted that as a student of history, the fact that the Chairman of the Federal Reserve and the Secretary of the Treasury both agreed that the global financial system was on the edge of total failure also caused him to go from opposing T.A.R.P. to favoring its passage. Paul, and Santorum never supported TARP. Big government Newt voting for Big Government bailout? Surprise surprise, keep the pork rolling!
            Come on APN, who you trying to kid?

          • APN

            Well Jay, I will ask you the same question, what felonious perjury?

            Or do you convict others in the same manner that the left does?

            Be specific?

  • Airangel

    I am glad the paid for contender “Romney” is not the shoe-in that the GOP establishment wants…they already had him pegged as the primary candidate…this vetting is good…I only wish Obama would have been vetted with the same vigor but he was given a “free” pass and we still don’t know what’s in is “sealed” closet….I will vote for anyone over inexperienced, celebrity wanna-be Obama!

    • Airangel

      I also think Newt was right to call-out the liberal Media for what they are…detractors from Obama’s dismal record…

      A gallon of regular gasoline the day Obama was inaugurated was $1.79 on average in the U.S. Today that price is $3.59, a 100.6% increase. The number of food stamp recipients has risen since Obama took office from 31,983,716 to 43,200,878, a 35.1% jump. Long term unemployment soared 146.2% during the same 32 month period from 2,600,000 to 6,400,000. Staggering hope and change isn’t it?

      American citizens living in poverty have risen 9.5% from 39,800,000 to 43,600,000, and the number of unemployed has jumped almost 25% from 11,616,000 to 14,485,000 as of August 31, 2011. The number of unemployed blacks has risen from 12.6% at the end of George Bush’s term to 15.8% today, a 25.4% increase, and finally, our national debt is up 34.4% from 10.627 trillion to 14,278 trillion *

      Keep these figures in mind as we recount the number of firsts for this presidency:

      First President to refuse to show a valid birth certificate.
      First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.
      First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.
      First President to preside over a cut to the credit rating of the United States .
      First President to violate the War Powers Act.
      First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico .
      First President to defy a Federal Judges court order to cease implementing the Health Care Reform Law.
      First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.
      First President to spend a trillion dollars on shovel-ready jobs and later admit there was no such thing as shovel-ready jobs.
      First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.
      First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.
      First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S. , including those with criminal convictions.
      First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.
      First President to terminate Americas ability to put a man in space.
      First President to encourage racial discrimination and intimidation at polling places.
      First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.
      First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.
      First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly speak-out on the reasons for their rate increases.
      First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state they are allowed to locate a factory. (Boeing)
      First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN)
      First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.
      First President to fire an inspector general of Ameri-corps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.
      First President to appoint 45 Czars to replace elected officials in his office.
      First President to golf 73 separate times in his first two and a half years in office.
      First President to hide his medical, educational and travel records.
      First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.
      First President to coddle American enemies while alienating Americas allies.
      First President to publicly bow to Americas enemies while refusing to salute the U.S. Flag.
      First President to go on multiple global apology tours.
      First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends, paid for by the taxpayer.
      First President to refuse to wear the U.S. Flag lapel pin.
      First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.
      First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000.00 a year at taxpayer expense.

      Remember that 32 months of Obama White House we the people have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our nation’s entire history, as the Obama’s plan their next extravagant vacation to the Indonesian Island nation of Bali .

          • Fred

            if they even BOTHER to count the votes. The press has already decided who is going to win and they are programing you to vote as they want. Days weeks and months without TV would be good for this nation. Find truthful news in another place. As the news in this nation work for one political party or the other. None can be believed. All are political party supporters, none are neutral like they are all supposed to be like. All should shrivel up and disappear to be replaced by groups that could tell the truth (both sides) every time they opened their mouth’s to speak. Good luck with that thou….

        Airangel. as an American you should also keep in mind all the “Worst” and “Worser” of the bush, the crawford cretin, administration. That’s part of our history too and provided the hole that Obama started from.

        • Airangel

          I am not excusing Bush but it’s Obamas term and he had 2 years to do something while he held all the cards…he chose to play and do nothing…he not only followed in Bushes path, he went full speed ahead on Fast Forward…This is on him and his lack of leadership, lack of experience, lack of business expertise, lack of military insight and lack of economic dynamics…sorry he is not qualified…he belongs in Hollywood land not leading a super power on the World Stage

            EXACTLY!!! This is what happens when a FOOLISH peoples DO NOT properly VET their candidates.

          • hsfire

            I actually don’t think Obama is that incapable. I think he is calculating and he knows what he is doing. He is purposefully trying to destroy America. He has loyalties to Islam. He is also opening the doors for the Muslim Brotherhood and others who are connected to terrorism. Wonder who all these CZARS are?

          • APN

            HSFIRE…….I agree completely and that is my point. I personally know several people who voted for this fraud but they will not make the same mistake twice.

            Response; actually three years and I don’t know where you been for much has been achieved in those three years. But if you don’t know about it or elect to be blind to it, there isn’t much that I can do about it.

            The GOP has indeed worked very hard to see nothing has been done and they do actively attempt to sell the notion nothing has been done.

            As we enter this forth years, why are they (the GOP) so upset if they have stalled Obamas progress and found him guilty of doing nothing?

            I suppose you must feel , I should now list all the many things that been accomplish under 44′s tenure to support my claim.

            And I will, just as soon as you support your claim that he hasn’t.

          • Karolyn

            Guess what, APN? This obama voter will vote for him again if Ron Paul isn’t nominated!

            Karolyn, It is your vote to be cast anyway you would like. That it is the beauty of America.

            Karolyn – Write Ron Paul’s name in, girl…

            When it comes to electing a President of this country, in a world in which the lines of left and right are skewered, we can’t allow the media, or any ‘party’ to tell us who we can, or can not, vote for… even for a mere nomination, which is based primarily on televised pseudo-debates run by media.

            Not to mention, Ron Paul has not ruled out running as a third Presidential Candidate, so long as the people support and encourage him to do so. But he doesn’t want to think about that as he’s focusing on the task at hand.

            Watching Ron Paul for many years… the most fascinating thing I find about him, isn’t even about him… it’s that his entire Campaign is primarily possible from individual donation, support, and dedication of his supporters. Unlike the other Candidates with plenty of corporate sponsors… Ron Paul is there ONLY as a representative of the people, for the people, BY the people. THAT is what scares the opposition.

            Should he not get the Republican ‘node’… refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils and vote how you really want to vote. Any other way, is a false choice… an illusion of choice.

          Airangel has every right to bring up Obama’s failures and maybe she will attempt to correct some of those problems by voting for Ron Paul. When it comes to the military I would dread having Gingrich,Santorum or Romney elected for we have played war games with that ilk for decades. They are all recycled war mongers who are just as eager for more foreign interventions. There is a Big difference between a strong defense and expansionism or reckless over bloated military spending. Ron Paul sees that and the rest of the pack doesn’t have a clue.

          • APN

            Ron Paul appears to be the one that is clueless and the polls reflect that fact.

          • http://comcast the fisherman

            Ron Paul maybe clueless but he still has that white sheet over his head

          • Fred

            there is nothing wrong with defending the constitution. Have you actually read it? I bet you have not. EDUCATE yourself, now!. Read it cover to cover. and then think long and hard about what is and if it fits with the constitution. It does not!.

          • APN

            Yep! I’ve read it…numerous times!

          • TML

            “Ron Paul appears to be the one that is clueless and the polls reflect that fact.”

            How do the ‘polls’ reflect that baseless “fact” if his support has only steadily increased throughout these many years?

          • APN

            TML….My comment is CURRENT not post event. How is he doing in SC, currently, not post time measure?

          • TML

            I’m quite sure such unofficial polls reflect whether or not Ron Paul is “clueless”.

          • APN

            Well TML, the polls do in fact indicate that most Americans think RP is clueless when it comes to our National Security.

          You CAN NOT blame Bush for this mess. Although it started while Bush was still in office, the mess we’re in started January 3, 2007. That is when the democrats took over both the house and senate.

          • APN

            Yep but Bush set the stage with TARP. Biggest mistake he ever made in his Presidency.

      • NC

        Airangel, read carefully! In 2002 before the Republican controlled congress passed the bush rich man tax cuts the Heritage Foundation issued this statement in FAVOR OF THE bush PLAN: “The final results show that the Bush plan would significaly increase the economic growth and family income while SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCING FEDERAL DEBT” end quote’

        HOW DID THAT BRILLIANT ADVICE BY THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION TO THE REPUBLICANS PAN OUT???

        Conservative think tanks strike again! Are you sure you want to rely real heavily on Heritage Foundation “thinking”??

        • APN

          Well maybe we should ask the progressive Marxist-Feminist crowd? I’m sure THEY can fix us up just perfectly. Bottom line, headed off a cliff and too stupid to recognize it.

      • Thinking About

        Airangel, in June of 2008 gas was over $4 a gallon so with the combination of Obama being elected and democrat controlled Congress investigating oil companies the price went down and still today average price is not $4. Banks had to be bailed out and car companies had to be bailed out. Ask the people working on the lines of car factories if they would rather be working or unemployed. We have our troops home from Iraq. Bin Laden forgotten by GWB is not with us anymore.

        • APN

          …only a progressive could defend a 300% increase in fuel costs and our federal government bailing out a car company run in the ground by a bunch of dope smoking UNION THUGS, at the expense of our grandchildren.

    • c.scamman

      Well, I’m not so sure banana-babal-bObama got a FREE pass as you say. Hilary did tarnish his image a bit, but the media certainly was playing softball with them both. That said, McCain has turned out to be quite the anti-Constitutionalist as well, so perhaps we escaped a great calamity. At least with this administration we knew we had to circle the wagons and had some preparation.

  • http://DoULoveJesus.Wordpress.com Mark Dabney

    How dare Ron Paul take time off from informing the people that they have a viable option to “more of the same” to actually do his job!

    Isn’t he supposed to just be concerned with furthering his political career like all the rest of the political prostitutes? [Pardon the offense to prostitutes who actually deliver the services they perform - unlike politicians!]

    Funny thing how Geri Ryan turned out to be a Borg sent back in time to change the course of history [;-)] after all, had she been a dutiful and obedient wife like Michelle Bachman she would have given in to Sen. Jack Ryan’s request for her to have sex with him openly at the sex club. Jack’s open senate seat allowed Obama the springboard to get into the Oval office to pretend to care about what is best for the American people.

    • APN

      Maybe Ron Paul should retire….do you think?

  • Sirian

    It was a very good debate last night especially Gingrich setting the moderator straight, in a very forceful manner indeed. If that didn’t raise a hoopla of standing applause. Throughout the debate though it was quite obvious as to the limited number of questions that were directed to RP. The primary amount of time was held and used by the other three. This primary will be very interesting to watch and see who comes out on top – predetermined establishment candidate or one of the other three? We’ll have to sit back, watch and enjoy some popcorn. . . :)

    • Vigilannie

      Gingrich has a knack for coming out and ‘saying’ what he knows people want to hear at the time….BUT HE’S A BIG FAT PHONY.

      • Sirian

        Oh yes, Vigilannie, I know that and agree but you have to admit, it was funny how he eliminated CNN’s attempt to bring that out right off the bat. There are volumes of issues at hand that are levels upon levels more important than what Gingrich’s ex has to say. Gingrich is a well disguised Progressive Republican that so many people don’t see.

        • APN

          Baloney! Newt is no more a progressive than Ron Paul is. Newt has just separated himself from the pack and Saturday will reflect that fact. PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR BOLD IDEAS AND BOLD LEADERSHIP.

          I’ve said it from the beginning and will continue to say it, Newt is the only man on the stage that can defeat Obama and nothing else is important at this critical time in our country’s history.

          Keep looking for your “perfect” candidate while our country goes down the tube. I’ve been around long enough to clearly understand that those who complain about the speck in their brothers eye has a PLANK in theirs.

          Both RP and MR lost my support with their BIG MONEY(SUPER PACKS) attacks on newt. I said it then and will say it again, they will suffer the consequences of their attacks and it will only make Newt stronger in the end. Proof? Who is leading the polls? Who’s message is resonating with the majority of the voters?

          Newt can handle anything the left will throw at him in November and last night PROVED that fact.

          • Patti

            I agree with you 100% APN! The nation is burning and although Newt is not someone I’d care to invite to dinner I do believe the man has had a conversion not only in his personal life but in how he views the world problems we face & the manner in which our Constitution has been degraded. He won’t ignore Ron Paul supporters re wars & foreign aid. He’s the only one that has half a chance of knocking Obummer off the podium & send him & his minions packing.

          • APN

            Thanks Patti!

      • APN

        He was a looser before he was elected so you get what you pay for.

        • Vic Bailey

          • APN

          • Jay

            APN: I didn’t vote for the dumb Marxist jackwagon.

            Finally, one thing we both have in common!

        • APN

          Jay, we probably have more in common than you think. We just disagree on who can defeat this Marxist Jackwagon come November.

          Regardless if RP wins the nomination or not, he will have major influence in the party going forward. If he doesn’t, well, the GOP is just plain STUPID and will lose the election. Put it this way, RP is MY second choice, not Mitt or Santorum, however, any of the aforesaid will move us back in the right direction, some just quicker than others.

  • Deerinwater

    WoW! Newt may not have appreciated his lead off question and I surely don’t blame him but he knocked it out of the park with his strong response. That is the kind of fire people are looking for in a President. If he could just be consist and control all this fire and not be some self-serving with the camera is turned off.

    • Airangel

      I believe Newt has changed after 14 years…lets face it, when you’re in a miserable marriage you aren’t your best because life sucks…He was meant to be with Callista where he has been all this time, he has the passion, the history, the experience and the conviction to beat Obama – however I will vote for whomoever is the contender because I can’t stand Obama….I read Newts book “Reflections on the Role of Faith in Our Nation’s History and Future”..I believe he is in the right place in life and his grandbaby had a lot to d with it…I like RP and would like to see him over the financial sector but as for debating with fire and convcition to beat OB – I choose Newt

      • Ted Crawford

        While I find no excuse, never having looked, for Newts treatment of Marianne, the re-election of Clinton, after his antics were well known, indicates that sexual and marital misconduct isn’t a factor in Presidential politics. Or is that just for Progressive politicians?

      • APN

        Same thinking HERE Airangel. Logical thinking is hard to guard.

    • APN

      I think Newt is the most capable and consistent candidate we have to DEFEAT Obama in November.

      • Vic Bailey

        NEWT is a P.I.G. pig PIG, any way you look at him, the draft dodging SOB, Hot check writing BASTARD that left his first wife and girls to starve in GA and left for Washington, if he wouldn’t take care of his own kids what makes you think he cares about yours? He is a sorry wasted piece of human flesh. Semper Fi.

        • APN

          • Jay

            He just did. HELLO, anybody home?

        • APN

          Yep, I’m right here. What’s the question?

    • Jay

      I suspect, Deerinwater, that the exchange between Newt and King regarding Newt’s extra marital affairs, was all staged. And this, for the purpose, as you said, to make Newt appear as a take-charge, type of leader! I could be wrong, and if i am, then Mr. King has got to be the world’s biggest MORON!!!

      • APN

        I would definitely say the later. This was no more staged than the Juan Williams event. You would think at this point that these left-wing clowns would understand who they are dealing with. A very capable leader WHO IS NOT AFRAID and WILL NOT be brow beaten by the LW Marxist media.

        This is the PRIMARY reason I will be voting for Newt tomorrow. I look forward to seeing him “School” this kid we have in the WH, come November.

        • Deerinwater

          Oh! I think you can carry it to the bank, that these “Left wing clowns” as you call them have read Newt mail and know exactly who they are dealing with.

          While I would agree with you, hands down Newt is the Master of Destroyer on the debating floor, he weights in on an Obama fight seriously compromised. He’s got a tough jaw and a hard head, but he flusters quick, quick to anger with weak knees and lead feet. He can’t dance on his feet but only in his mind and carrying tons of baggage.

          And besides all of that, Newt is a snake that asking you to pick him up with his promise, not to bite.

          When he bites you, he will tell you; It your fault, you knew I was a snake.

          • Jay

            Amen, Deerinwater!

          • APN

            Thanks for giving us a very descriptive definition of YOUR King Obama.

        • Jay

          Wow folks, here’s something interesting i happened upon. Probably too outrageous to be considered, right?

          Mulatto Barry Davis Soetoro Obama is a 32nd Degree Prince Hall Rite Freemason, a Socialist-Communist and a Muslim. He is also an asset of the Black Pope’s Central Intelligence Agency.

          Overseen by “the Company’s” DCI, White Roman Catholic Jesuit-trained Knight of Malta Leon Panetta, and directed by his immediate adviser, White Roman Catholic Jesuit-trained Vice President Joe Biden, Mulatto President Obama is the willing tool being employed by the Order to outrage and thus polarize all Whites via executive high crimes and misdemeanors.

          Once the polarization is complete, key agents within the Order’s “New Right” Fox News Network and Council for National Policy are to then lead America’s persecuted Whites into supporting a Right-Wing Fascist Military Dictatorship. As was done in apostate, Reformation Bible-rejecting, White Protestant Germany following World War I (the Order using its terrorizing and murderous Masonic Jewish Communists in both Roman Catholic Bavaria and Protestant Prussia to unite all Germans so as to justify the creation of Roman Catholic Himmler’s SS in Bavaria and apostate Lutheran Protestant Goering’s Gestapo in Prussia thus empowering the Papacy to impose Jesuit Fascism under Roman Catholic Austrian Adolf Hitler), so it is to be here in apostate White Protestant America.

          This is the Hegelian Dialectic employed by the military Company of Jesus when attacking a historically White Protestant nation in which resides a large Jewish population targeted for destruction.

          On “the left” are the “liberal” (Democratic and race-mixed) Fabian Socialist-Communists openly backed by notorious Masonic Jews and Jesuits.

          On “the right” are the “conservative” (Republican and generally racially White) Roman Socialist-Fascists openly backed by notorious Roman Catholic Knights of Malta and select Freemasons.

          Barry has notable Papal Court Jews within his administration who can be blamed for his radical, socialist-communist agenda—as decreed by Barry’s White Papal Masters. At this very moment, Obama is planning to sign an “executive order” granting citizenship to over 40 million Mexican/Latino Roman Catholic Alien Invaders—at the behest of the American Jesuit Conference advising the Pope’s American Roman Hierarchy.

          At the same time, retired Army Major General Paul Vallely, affiliated with both Fox News and the Council for National Policy, is calling for the resignation of President Obama to the delight of the righteously outraged, socially raped, financially pillaged and plundered White people of America, many of whom are participating in the Jesuit-directed Tea Party Movement.

          All that is needed is an “incident,” an “event,” and the entire Republican Fascist Machine will be thrown into high gear.

          That event could be the sinking of an Aircraft Carrier in the Persian Gulf—blamed on Obama; a massive explosion in the Gulf of Mexico due to the Vatican’s controlled and secretive oil fiasco—blamed on Obama; the destruction of a national monument, like the Statue of Liberty, Capitol Building or White House—blamed on Obama; or even the assassination of President Obama himself, more specifically the public killing of his cloned double via the Black Hand of Rome’s CIA/FBI/NSA.

          • Thinking About

            You are misinformed or just spewing words of discontent. You post contradicts itself, but having heard Obama declare his belief in Jesus Christ then he could be a mason and not Muslim. I suspect you was denied access to Masonic order or was kicked out because of your life’s decisions. Now you need to take your Muslim beliefs and spend some time rethinking your life or at least start arriving at the truth for it shall set you free.

          • Jay

      Why should he feel one way or the other about a line out of the script. The moderator read his line and then Leroy read his lines. what’s with the drama? Am I the only one who can recognize political theatre when they see it? The whole ex wife and daughters thing was all a hoax.Leroy had to find some way of disguising his atrocious behavior so him and Rove dreamed up the whole narrative. Once again they have created our reality for us. Now every time anyone mentions his indiscretions he can cite the “liberal media” canard at them as a way of deflecting legitimate criticism. Kind of like the old anti-semitism trick.

      • APN

        Wow, what a complex conspiracy theory you have! Let me get this straight, a very liberal moderator from a marxist leaning network, conspired with Rove to set the stage for Newt to make both the moderator and the marxist network look like the bumbling fools they are.

        Makes sense to me!

      • Jay

        C.Davis, BULLS EYE! Now, replace Obama with Newt, in your above stellar deduction, and APN, would have most certainly concurred!

        • Jay

          Should have stated; Newt with Obama.

          • APN

            Yep, and confusion appears to be your primary asset.

  • Linda

    I love it! I just absolutely love it! Finally! a free state voting block that is UNPREDICTABLE! (Many of us said the liberally bent IOWA and NH voters would pick the MOST RINO of the lot – and they did). The slog fest in SC has been the best thing I’ve seen in politics in a long time – and we (the people) certainly need to see it. And the liberal media crapping themselves because they can’t predict the outcome is just pure entertainment! They look rediculous running around trying to pull gotcha’s on these folks – and the voters aren’t buying it, just don’t care or voting to spite the MSM AND the GOP establishment! Finally – the VOTERS are showing that they’re made of tougher stuff and DON’T tow & vote the party line. I have to admit – I was an independent for 20 years and registered GOP for the 2010 elections because I felt I had to be part of the process after the McCain nomination (I actually voted for Palin). I wonder how many indies and libertarians have swithed to GOP to vote in the primary – like me? I hope this very bumpy ride continues all through the nomination process.

    • APN

      VERY well put and it will, trust me. The good folks of SC are not easily fooled and we vet our candidates. I think last night was a very revealing indication of that fact.

    • Airangel

      I think Newt has changed and despite how you feel personally, he did run a surplus and balanced the budget 4 years and created millions of jobs which just may sound really good to an impoverished, downward spiraling nation….WOW the concept of earning your own paycheck, learning responsibility, gaining independence and skills to propel you forward in life, he would nix Obamas 45 Czars that were appointed bypassing legislation….I think his experience in all facets of Government is just what this country needs…we can’t afford another “on-the-job training” President and I do believe he is in the right place now.

      • Mushin

            APN,
            You do realize that your statement is nothing more than an opinion (yours and yours alone)…and that quite probably, you are the one who is doing nothing to regain our once great nation? Could it be that it is you who will cause us to lose the election to Barrack Obama ( because of your lack of due dilligence in vetting all of the candidates properly)? While it is wonderful that you have such a high opinion of those of us who don’t agree with your thought processes….guess what?…We feel the same way about you…deal with it and move along.You are free to cast your vote for anyone you choose…and so dare the rest of us. Go to the booth and cast your vote…and stop worrying about who the rest of us are voting for….it doesn’t concern you. BTW, I’ll be nullifying your vote…with my vote for Ron Paul….sorry for your luck.

          • APN

            Good for you Average Joe. Why don’t you give us the methodology you used in nullifying my vote. Or is this a statement based upon your average intelligence?

            Due diligence my friend is something that works both ways, including MY due diligence concerning Ron Paul. You seem to think you have a superior due diligence process? Maybe you should spend a little more time researching things before you make these type comments?

            If Ron Paul is a superior candidate with leadership ability, then why hasn’t his message accomplished anything in about 100 years of service via the congress? You think maybe he is a Washington insider by now? You think maybe he is an “Elitist”? Where did he get all this money to run attack ads against Newt? Why hasn’t he run any attack ads against Romney?

            In addition, why is it that Ron Paul builds PORK in a Bill and then votes against that Bill? Did your due diligence process detect that fact or did you average intelligence miss out on that fact?

            In fact, why don’t you list our for us the BILLIONS in pork barrel spending that went to HIS constituents. Now, his voting record will indicate HE WAS AGAINST PORK BARREL SPENDING, however, the result is the same! My GRANDCHILDREN still owe this money….period!!!!

            How clever!

          • http://lamebrained-ideas.blogspot.com C.Davis

            Average Joe, my advice to you would to save your breath for someone capable of respect for anyone else. As his hero and many others who posess a certain feral intelligence, he (she?) has a proclivity for grossly overestimating their level of development relative to others. This type of person is inevitably oblivious to the advantages inherent in the cultivation of wisdom. Now if you will allow me , I will attempt to educate this APN person about the so-called earmark issue. Please wish me luck,I am sure I will need it.
            The universally decried corruption of the legislature means that many harmful, wasteful bills introduced in congress for passage require the behind-the-scenes wrangling of these corrupt congressmen, which they describe as arm twisting, but is really nothing more than bribery. Since they know they can’t bribe Ron Paul, he is excluded from this “arm twisting” activity. As a bonus for these “arm twisters” they are able to also exclude Dr Paul’s district from representation, thereby nescessitating that Dr. Paul attach appropriation riders to the bad bills in order to obtain representation for his district, which is his job.
            Unfortunately the unscrupulous congressmen who are inclined to hate a better man than themselves, point their fingers at him as if he has done something wrong, though of course he has not.
            One particularly corrupt senator even made a point of politicising this issue leading up to the ’08 presidential election, so that he would have something, at least, to attack Dr Paul with since nothing else could be found for this purpose.
            That senator was John McCain,who recently co-authored the NDAA. So now the corrupt congress people accuse Paul of “pork barrel spending” in order to obscure the infinitely larger quantities of tax money they’ve pilfered away through their untraceable back room deals.
            Then they accuse him of hypocracy when he votes against the bill that he would never have voted for in the first place, ascribing their own motives for doing similar things to doctor Paul, who is only motivated by honor.
            Now many either uninformed or intellectually dishonest individuals propagate these innacuracies on the internet and talk radio in order to influence others who are either gullible or likewise intellectually dishonest, in order to disparage the greatest statesman of our time, a man who for 30 years has daily inserted himself into the breech between his beloved republic and the greatest evil to have evolved in the history of mankind. For which I and many others pray for him daily. We do not expect the victims of this evil to understand our devotion to this man and his cause, for they have been damaged by the very beast which they serve. Suffice it to say that while the flame that is the Ron Paul R3VOLUTION burns,liberty has a beacon for the huddled masses.

            Good post APN, Paul was one of four republican who added earmarks in 2011. He has a record of voting against bills but his earmarks cost just as much. If we are spending too much money as he says then why does he keep piling on the earmarks.

            You a little “Touchy” these days, aren’t you?

    • Ted Crawford

      Ron Paul is more dangerous for this country than even Obama himself!

      • eddie47d

        Most of the Republican field defends the Roman Empire of using foreign intervention to get (take) what they want. They want to conquer through military action to achieve their goals because they don’t have the cajones’ to do it economically. Ron Paul doesn’t endorse that old world attitude.

      • Mike C

        You’re an idiot.

      • Jay

        I agree Ted, Ron Paul is, dangerous, but not to this country! Are you quaking in your boots, shill?

      • APN

        I agree Ted, no doubt in my mind about it.

    • APN

      Mushin said: How could anyone consider voting for anyone else under the terrible condition our country and the world is in?!

      EASY! Newt is the best qualified candidate, RP is not. And yes, RP IS an elitist, and NO, he is not a conservative, he is however a libertarian…BIG DIFFERENCE.. I mean I like the guy and I think he has done some good things but I do not think he is the SAVIOR you perceive him to be. He is also unelectable and will lose to Obama in a landslide. Why? Because he cannot communicate…..period!

      I would like to see him as the Treasury Secretary under A Newt Presidency. BYE BYE FED!

    • Fred

      Ron Paul is the only candidate that is not as flip flopper. We need someone who says what he believes and does what he says. What a difference from the rest of the candidates!!!!!!! on both sides. Actually in all of government it seems you could not find someone more qualified, to REPRESENT THE PEOPLE. He is the only candidate that took a oath to do no damage to his patients. This oath of doctors sets Ron Paul separate from the rest of the poleititians who lie about representing you in government for a living. We need candidates who REALLY will represent the ordinary citizen’s interests.

      • APN

        Good luck with that one!

  • Patriot Diva

    This South Carolinian is voting for Ron Paul in the primary. Newt Gingrich is a serial adulterer, a New World Order puppet, a member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations. Romney is the father of socialized medicine, and was for abortion before he was against it. Santorum voted to raise the debt ceiling 5 times and supported Arlen Spector over a tea party candidate for senate. And they try to call Ron Paul crazy.

    • Lastmanstanding

      Atta girl PD…you are using moral common sense and it sounds as if you are doing your own vetting. More should do the same.

      The internet is an valuable tool to find whatever one wants…and it doesn’t take a genius to use it. That is why they want to shut sites down…because the sites they will can are the ones that provide the info of what they are/have been up to for years.

      Google…politicians killed in plane crashes (and spend a few hours checking that one out)…one will most likely never vote republican or democrat ever again…

      Ron Paul 2012…so our kids and grandkids have a chance.

      • Mushin

        Yeah, and while your at it, look at the plane-load of fella’s who were going to testify against the Clointoins. Funny how those plane’s malfunction when your about to testify against someone who’s connected, then it explodes and crashes in a remote wilderness…..?

    • Mushin

      Wow! My kinda woman!

    • Janice Nelson

      You give me hope

    • APN

      T Patriot Diva, When you find this perfect little sin free candidate that can put together a coherent statement that the folks can understand, let us know. Until then, Newt will get my vote, and at my last local grassroots group discussion, he will get ALL their votes too.

      Like it or not, Newt is the only man that can defeat Obama in November and get this country back on track, and personally, I could care less what some X-Wife has to say about their personal affairs.

      I can assure you that it is nothing more than a he said she said bunch of useless baloney for the sole purpose of getting the voters sidetracked from the REAL issues at hand. All of us clearly understand at this point that women are just as guilty in the failure of a marriage as men are. Who do you think these men are running around with anyway? What was HER name in the WH with ole Bubby?????

    • Fred

      That “they” lie about Ron Paul so much should give you a clue. They don’t want Ron Paul representing the will of the people. 50% of the citizens of this country want pot legalized, want the failed drug war ended. Does our representative government even hear us 50%ers? NO. They tell us how to think. Tottally wrong. We tell them what to do not the opposite as it is now. I saw Romney tell a disabled Vet that even if pot helps him too bad. How cold is he? If the pill makes you sick too bad. Go to Utube and see the video of Romney blowing a disabled vet off, and turning his back on him. Says a lot about Romney. So find the video.

      • APN

        We all understand Fred, it is all about the legalization of pot.

        We get it and have for quite some time now. In addition, we all understand that libertarians do not believe in vice crimes or anything that would impose on THEIR right to do just exactly as they please regardless of the consequences to society as a whole.

        Got it!

        • Jay

          You are a control-freak, APN. We get it!

          • APN

            Touched a nerve?

          • Jay

            Hardly, but you did expose your true-self. Yikes, no wonder you love Newt! Zieg hail!

        • APN

          Light you up another one Jay and relax, all will be fine.

  • Lynne

    I invested in the Ron Paul 2012 website’s store yesterday and will soon become a walking advertisement for him. Write his name in if we must in the general election. Ron Paul 2012!

    • APN

      Yep and get Obama re-elected for sure. Makes sense to me!

      • Fred

        If it was a fight between Ron Paul and incumbent Obummer Ron Paul would get 75% of the popular vote. Obummer does not stand a chance against Ron Paul. The other candidates the press is pushing, can be beat by Obummer easily. The press is spreading the thought that a vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obummer. Why is the press trying to get us to vote how they want?. If the press can get Romney or Ginrich as the nominee then Obummer will win again. Think or let the government think for you.

        • APN

          Again, makes sense to me! That is why the liberal media is attacking NEWT, relentlessly, correct? Or have I missed something here?

          • Jay

            Yes APN, you have missed something. The exit!

          • APN

            Did I hit another nerve Jay?

          • Jay

            Was that you’re intention all-along? Silly me, i initially assumed you were here to educate us!

          • APN

            Well Jay, I would think YOU would be the one to enlighten us in your “Euphoric” mindset, correct?

  • old as dirt

    I hope South Carolina terminates the last three turkeys and Ron Paul can march into Florida unimpeded. If that happens the lame stream propaganda machine will stop reporting on the Republican primary altogether and go back to sucking on the “messiah’s” toes. When Barry Goldwater won the Republican primary in 64 the RINO machine withheld any support and you can predict with certainty they will treat Ron Paul the same way. Its up to us folks, he will need all the help we can muster. Its our choice to save the republic at the ballot box or later with guns.

    • APN

      Newt will win SC and will go on to be our next president.

      • Vic Bailey

        APN,
        Does your daddy run a pig farm, is that why you are so in love with NEWT? The P.I.G. pig PIG any way you look at him! Semper Fi.

        • APN

          Well Vic, it appears that the VAST majority of we South Carolinians love Newt based upon the election results. Given your logic, I guess we like PIGS.

          • Karolyn

            I guess you’re right!

          • APN

            Sounds like a little sour grapes to me Karolyn.

          • libertytrain

            I’m not now nor have I ever been a Newt fan. So if that’s sour grapes count me in with Karolyn. Though frankly sour grapes isn’t even close to the right words for what many of us our feeling…

          • Jay

            Oink oink, its feeding time, here comes farmer Newt, with more “Pork-Barrel-Spending!”

          • APN

            Well Jay, we can see who has the most Pork, Paul or Newt.

          • APN

        • APN

          I choose NOT AT ALL and most of us in SC made the same decision.

  • LibRep

    I hope Santorum drops out of the race next. When he talks, he comes across as being angry that he has to go through the process and seems to be demanding that he be the front-runner. Romney is losing his mojo thanks to the tax return questions and Newt, as intelligent as he is, can’t seem to maintain focus. I mean, what does it say about your competence if you can’t even get on the ballot of your own home state?

    Insanity is voting for the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. Well, I’m not insane. I’m crazy and I’m voting for the guy they want to portray as crazy – Ron Paul.

    • APN

      Newt seems to be pretty darn focused to me! In fact, he seems to be more focused than the remainder of the field combined.

  • http://www.besco.co Dave

    The establishment media domination is coming to an end and no matter how they try, they are no longer influencing the people as they once were. If it weren’t so insulting, it would be laughable how they present their view on the debate. Paul looked like the only adult on the stage and the GOP has made a HUGE mistake with their blatant lack of honesty. As a business owner, I can’t keep up with politics like I should, but I’ve seen enough on the web to know that I won’t be voting for another person with unstable views on the issues. Isn’t that what we are facing already with the 0bama administration? The fact that we don’t know what’s coming next!?! With Paul, it’s easy. He has been clear, consistent and honest all the way. I know where he stands and trust that he will still stand that way tomorrow. Plus, I like the fact that he will start REALLY cutting government spending and its nanny state intrusion efforts. No person is perfect, but out of the four that the GOP is offering, I can only vote for the one that they SEEM to be trying to derail. (Great job GOP!?!)

    • APN

      Dave said: The establishment media domination is coming to an end and no matter how they try, they are no longer influencing the people as they once were.

      I agree, thanks to Newt Gingrich! He put a stop to that in the last two debates, did he not? This is a MAN that will not be brow beaten by the elite machine. Including Ron Paul and Mitt Romney’s super packs.

      Dave said: If it weren’t so insulting, it would be laughable how they present their view on the debate. Paul looked like the only adult on the stage and the GOP has made a HUGE mistake with their blatant lack of honesty.

      The only person I saw on the stage that looked like an adult was Newt, not Ron Paul. In fact, most people I have spoken with on this subject perceive him to be silly, not capable of leading.

      Dave said: As a business owner, I can’t keep up with politics like I should, but I’ve seen enough on the web to know that I won’t be voting for another person with unstable views on the issues. Isn’t that what we are facing already with the 0bama administration?

      There is nothing unstable about Obama’s views whatsoever. He expressed his views on wealth redistribution(Marxism) before the election and he has been pretty darn consistent in moving that agenda forward FROM DAY ONE in the WH.

      Dave said: The fact that we don’t know what’s coming next!?! With Paul, it’s easy. He has been clear, consistent and honest all the way. I know where he stands and trust that he will still stand that way tomorrow. Plus, I like the fact that he will start REALLY cutting government spending and its nanny state intrusion efforts.

      Maybe,maybe not. Did Dr. Paul build pork barrel spending into bills and then vote against those bills, or not? I think he did AND I perceive that action to be VERY disgusting. It distorts the TRUE record of PORK BARREL spending on his account.

      Dave said: No person is perfect, but out of the four that the GOP is offering, I can only vote for the one that they SEEM to be trying to derail. (Great job GOP!?!)

      I agree, Newt is not perfect and neither is Ron Paul. Both have baggage and both have issues. IN fact, WE ALL have baggage and there will never be a perfect candidate. My ONLY concern at this point in our history is removing this Chicago thug from the WH and Newt is the only one I see that can get the job done.

      Life comes with hard choices sometimes but this ain’t one of them.

    • Fred

      He has been clear, consistent and honest all the way. How totally un-political like. Vote Ron Paul.

      • APN

        OK, I’ll vote for Newt.

      • Jay

        Ok, I’ll be voting for Ron Paul!

  • Jean Hayworth

    I support Ron Paul, the other three are all Rep est. candidates and I find Newt Gingrich and Santorum very scary and hope everyone stops and really thinks about this in S.C. Newt puts up a real convincing smoke screen and is very devious. I hope people remember that his own party threw him out of the U.S. House of Representatives. for ethics violations. This, he hasn’t changed, he sounds very lofty in his answers but doesn’t get down to details. His head is in the clouds and his own immense ego. My goodness, he is soooo impressed with himself, most scary individual,

    • Buddy

      Yes, both Gingrich and Santorum are good “dictator” material. Their support for bombing Iran almost guarantees another war. It’s doubtful that the USA union can survive the effects of another war!

      • APN

        Obama will be in a war with Iran before summers end.

    • APN

      Well Jean, unlike you, I admire MANLY confidence and do not perceive Newt’s confidence as arrogance.

      One thing that I deplore, and have all my life, are those who speak to me in their soft little touchy-feely daycare tones, as if I were a CHILD that needed their assistance in understanding ADULT issues. Those same little twits that crammed this unconstitutional OBAMACARE nanny state bill down our throats.

      You would think given the state of the disaster this nation is currently in, people just might start to connect the dots and understand why our country is falling off a cliff.

      It’s called Marxist-Feminism and it is in the process of being challenged for the first time in decades. I personally welcome the challenge and it is about time to call out the little hate filled self-appointed dictators, who think THEY know whats best for us “Little Helpless Children”.

      Bottom line, get the Marxist-Feminist Daycare mentality out of America and send it back to Europe, where it belongs.

  • Jhay70

    I support Ron Paul, the only candidate with any sense. I consider the other three all Republican establishment candidates. Gingrich is arrogant and does not answer directly but always has a lofty in the clouds response of big ideas but no practical solutions. He is not for the common man but is a corporate mouthpiece who will give advantage to big business. People need to remember that his own party kicked him out of the U.S. House of Representatives for laundry list of ethics violations. He cuts corners and tramples on everyone to accomplish his own ends which he considers the only path. He will not compromise and work with anyone for the good of all. I do believe his wife that he wanted her to tolerate an open marriage and maintain his mistress who is his current wife. All this while he was accusing Clinton of his behavior which proves how deceptive he is and how he operates. Wake up and see through all this bull. Santorum is almost as scary and is more concerned about social issues than what is most important. Remember, he supported five increases of the national debt ceiling under Pres. Bush II. Romney is the most ethical besides Ron Paul but doesn’t have a clue how the average American has to operate on a daily basis. I think he could get the economy rolling but am afraid he would get sucked into continuing the war or wars. We should shut down a number of bases in foreign countries, Germany, England and Italy, just to name a few countries. We could save a lot by closing most of those bases. Why are we over in Europe more than 65 years after WWII???? Not necessary to support their economies or have military presence there.

    • APN

      I find it very interesting as to how you could state NEWT doesn’t know how to compromise? What did he do as Speaker of the House? Did he not give the GOP a majority in congress for the first time in 40 years? Did he not pull Bill Clinton back to the center and get welfare reform, as well as, four straight years of a balanced budget?

      How does someone do this without compromise or negotiating skills? Newt is a lot of things but you seem to be speaking about someone else.

      • Deerinwater

        True! but isn’t compromise bad?

        • APN

          Compromise is a necessary thing in Washington, if you want to get our economy/nation working again. That comment does not imply that we compromise our core principles an beliefs. It does however imply that YOU CANNOT get everything that YOU personally want in Washington.

          Ask King Obama and see how well this mindset is working out for him. And, even if you ignore the WILL OF THE PEOPLE, and do as he did, by forcing OBAMACARE down our throats, well, it will be repealed in the very near future if the Supreme Court does not strike it down first.

          Bottom line, you simply cannot govern without the WILL OF THE PEOPLE and Washington is in the process of learning that fact.

          I love MY constitution just as much as anyone on this site, however, this PROGRESSIVE mess of our constitution was not done overnight and will not be fixed overnight nor will it be fixed by ONE man, as in Ron Paul, as many have suggested on this site.

          In fact, Ron Paul does not have the communication skills to be President so how will he lead our nation out of this mess? Newt however does have the Presidential SKILLS to lead us out of this mess. After that, WE THE PEOPLE can continually place pressure on those who we elect and send to Washington to move our country back to where our Founders intended it to be, a republic.

          • Fred

            Ron Paul communicated very clearly to me. Why you bash him? how much do you get paid to do so?.

          • APN

            Fred, I’m just like you…I don’t get paid anything nor are my thoughts controlled by anyone. I’m certain in my mind that Ron Paull is a good man however that has nothing to do with him being electable as President.

          • Jay

            There are millions of people who would disagree with you, APN. However, you are entitled to your OPINION!

          • APN

            Yep! That is all it is, my opinion. Good to get an ADULT response for a change. I never have had to much patience for the daycare mentality in America.

  • DON THE BRITTON

    When Newt saw Obama going around congress he decided if he were President he could ram through all of his crazy ideas. A power hungry politician with a plan to rule the world does that not make you all worm and fuzzy inside? Vote for Newt and rule the world.

    • APN

      OK, I will, tomorrow.

  • Bob Marshall

    If Newt Gingrich wins the nomination and eventually the presidency, the Council on Foreign Relations will be grateful to the voters. Israel will get their war with Iran and the Council on Foreign Relations will get their man in the White House.America will see more loved one coming home in body bags and the war debt will increase even more. Corporate America will become more and more wealthy. I guess we have to have wars because if the troops come home there will be no jobs available. Sad state of affairs.

    • APN

      All that seems to be in place now by Obama. Newt will have very little to do once elected.

      • APN

        P-U-N implied.

          Pun is a word, APN, not an acronym. Silly goose!

          • APN

            Perfectly Understandable, Not….

            now who is the silly goose?

      • Jay

        Yes, all is in place. Obama has laid out the groundwork for Newt to bring the rattled, and abused masses into a fascist-dictatorship! Are Obama and Newt at odds? Naaw, more like co-conspiritors, two wings of the same fascist-bird.

        • APN

          That seems to be a major stretch their Jay, don’t you think?

          • Vic Bailey

            NO STRETCH AT ALL. They BOTH work for the same bunch of Socialist, they just have different handlers on their Monkey Chains. They want America to disolve and enter the New World Order. They are Both Liars, Bastards, PIGS, the only difference is that one is a legal candidate and one isn’t! Semper Fi.

          • APN

            Which one???

    • eddie47d

      He’ll have plenty of his own wars to contend with if the past is any reflection of what has been done and will be done in the future. Newt won’t be the last President to Wag the Dog.

  • Jay

    While listening to the National Anthem last night, and just before the second-last line of the Anthem, “And the land of the free”, my television screen froze, and returned to normal just before the last line, “And the home of the brave.” Anyone else experienced the same glitch?

  • John Lilleburns ghost

    The problem is that Newt Gringrich should have been called to account by a weak moderator. The man is a serial sleazeball dumping his 1st wife because ” she is not attractive enough to be a future presidents and besides she has cancer” Calling on Clinton for his actins whilst f88king the 2nd mistress. So now he is all contrite and pious and states I have made mistakes I have sinned but my new-found god (very convenient) has forgiven me. That might play with you mealy mouthed fairy story believing right wing nut jobs but not with me. The man is a worthless lying hypocrite and in a presidential debate campaign would be ripped to shreads

    • APN

      Well John, coming from a mealy mouthed progressive, your comments mean very little to me, and, I will vote for the man who can and will DEFEAT this mealy mouth progressive-marxist fool we currently have in the WH.

      His name is Newt Gingrich. The MAN who will lead us out of this progressive nightmare.

      NEWT 2012!

      • Patti

        Good for you APN! Wish I could vote with you! God help all those who don’t believe in redemption or feel they are voting for a ‘husband’ in the WH. We need Newt Gingrich more than any words can convey and I pray people wake up.

        • APN

          Patti, I agree completely! I’m voting for the man to be my President, not my pastor. I too believe in redemption, if not, I personally would be in serious trouble. In fact, it would NEGATE my beliefs completely.

          Given the comments I’ve read on this site, well, so much for the Apostle Paul.

        As I’ve said before “No Newt is good Newt!!! VERY SCARY!

            Please, tell me, just out of curiosity, do you get paid by the post or by the lie? Or do they just give you red stars or mitzvas, perhaps if your averages for lies exceeds the number of posts? Because I’m starting to suspect that the flatulence you are bestowing all over us on this board is some kind of cry for help for your uncontrollable compulsion to remove any doubt of your unabridged vacuity. While I am not normally a proponent of the psychiatric profession, In your case I would advise you to GET HELP.

            By the way Cdavis, did your aforesaid response help your low self-esteem issue?

          • Jay

            Personally, I think that C.Davis’s aforementioned response to you, would do wonders for your low self-esteem, should you be but willing to swallow the medicine, that C.Davis so-lovingly offers! And, may i add, at no charge to you. You gotta love pro-bono services!

            Well Jay, I’ve been accused of a lot of things in my life but never a low self-esteem. Based upon both your’s and Cdavis’s comments, I will leave that issue to the two of you.

        • eddie47d

          Too stop all the false flag wars would be my main objective to vote for Ron Paul. We create wars and then get mad when they strike back which only leads to more wars. Then comes the financial drain and more people hating us in the world.

          OK, I will. I will also vote for Newt tomorrow, without a doubt.

          Sometimes a person with a feeble grip on reality, when commanded by his superior to propagate an example of cognitive dissonance, the dissonance begins to resonate after a certain number of repetitions, then the resonance builds until a feedback loop begins to form, then the feedback begins to surge uncontrollably like a Marshall double stack Amp until the victim’s head explodes. Verrry messy. Once this loop propagation begins, you can expect that someone will soon make a very grisly discovery.

    when the bolsheviks start calling names you know they are in trouble.
    “barry tearing gingrich apart in a debate” that’s funny enough to be heard on saturday nite live. i would be very surprised if barry would show up for a debate.

    • APN

      I agree completely! Why do you think the “Elites” have attacked Gingrich from both sides of the isle?

      Gingrich will make Obama look like the CHILDISH FOOL he is, JUST LIKE he did the liberal medians, in the last two debates.

      • Jay

        Yes APN, and Obama is well prepared to take a hit for the team. The end result is a, win-win for both. Say hello to more wars under a fascist dictatorship!

        • APN

          Ok

  • http://none R Paul or status quo

    Anyone else but Ron Paul will equal peeing in the wind. Ron Paul 2012 APN says newt will have very little to do once elected, that’s not worth a vote to me. To each his own I reckon.

    • APN

      Maybe you should go back and re-read my comments. Not sure YOUR interpretation is correct.

      Newt is the only candidate that can defeat Obama and it appears to me that this fact is beginning to become VERY obvious.

    Newt chastising the press for being despicable was hysterical. That guy has zero morals! He runs on his record as speaker, he should run away from it! Google just what went on with his record. Not to mention the hypocrisy of the whole Clinton/Lewis scandal he had the nerve to weigh in on! Everyone loves a loudmouth, tough guy I guess. He’s the furthest thing from a tough guy I’ve seen…He’s a lying weasel and I would trust him as far as I could throw his fat @$$ across the room!

      Seems to me that you have an issue with MANLY Vigilance? Maybe you should have this conversation with Madison.

  • Jay

    Naaw, this is way too outrageous, but an interesting read, none-the-less!

    According to Count Vittorio in Venice, Republican presidential candidate/CFR-member/33rd Degree Freemason/Bohemian Grover Newt Gingrich and Republican House Speaker John Boehner are Roman Catholic Knights of Malta having participated in rituals both in Washington and Rome. Further, as per a previous post, Gingrich has been the dear personal friend of Roman Catholic Knight of Malta Cartha D. DeLoach, who, in 1963, was third in command at the FBI and overseer of Division Five that participated in the Kennedy assassination and subsequent cover-up.

    Not to be outdone, Boehner is responsible for effecting the appointment of the first Jesuit chaplain in the House of Representatives, “Father” Patrick Conroy. Further, both Gingrich and Boehner are dear personal friends of former Republican US Senator from Pennsylvania, Knight of Malta Rick Santorum.

    Remembering that all three knights promote the lie of Muslim responsibility behind 911, the picture begins to dramatically unfold. Pope Benedict XVI and his master, Jesuit Superior General Adolfo Nicolas, are promoting a monstrous international crusade against Islam, first against the Shia of Afghanistan and Iraq, and then against the Sunnis to include a radicalized Turkey.

    This is agreement with a statement from that infamous traitor/CIA/KGB mole involved in the JFK assassination and cover-up, Knight of Malta James Jesus Angelton, who, back in about 1970, called for another crusade against Islam. (Your Editor learned this from one of the speakers at the Conspiracy Conference at Santa Clara, California, back in 2002!) To this design agree the words of Jesuit human devil Francis Xavier who declared: “Put me some place where there are no Jews or Moslems!”
    Ex-Jesuit Dr. E. Boyd Barrett, Rome Stoops to Conquer, (New York: Julian Messner, Inc., 1935), p. 180.

    Keeping the above in mind, two powerful foreigners are leading these American knights in the pope’s crusade. They are Grand Master of the Knights of Malta Matthew Festing of England and Knight of Malta King Juan Carlos of Spain. Additionally, Queen Elizabeth II holding the throne ruling Great Britain and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands are also Dames of Malta!

    Yes, European pawns of the Jesuit Papacy rule America and have de facto ruled America since no later than 1865 and have ruled de jure since the declared ratification of the pope’s wicked 14th Amendment on July 28, 1868! These cronies for Rome ruling the nation include CFR members, Freemasons, Papal Knights and Jesuits all directly or indirectly subject to the Black Pope!

    So what is the Order’s endgame as depicted in these details? First, Knight Gingrich, backed by Rome, will be the Republican presidential candidate for the 2012 “election,” rather, the rigged election, rather in fact, the 2012 Republican party “appointment.”

    Knight Boehner will back Knight Gingrich in the House! Obama and his Roman Catholic Jesuit-blessed handler Joe Biden may well be given a second term, Obama then to further drive all Whites in general to further desperation (via anti-White Middle Class, pro-socialist-communist legislation), and thus into the arms of the Order’s Republican “New Right” Jesuit fascism.

    Remember, pro-Nazi Project Paperclip/Knight of Malta J. Peter Grace, the late head of the American branch of the Order, was the real founder and financier of the “New Right” born in the early 1980s during the Knight of Malta-directed “Reagan Era.” For in 1984, Reagan and his pro-Rome US Senate formally recognized the pope’s “Sovereign State of Vatican City” and immediately exchanged ambassadors, the first American ambassador being Knight of Malta William Wilson! Now legally recognized, the American Empire (1868-Present) and the Sovereign State of Vatican City (1929-Present) can enter into a treaty called a “concordat” similar to the one finalized by German Knight of Malta Franz von Papen in 1933 on Hitler’s behalf—a concordat that is still in full force over Germany today!

    The coming grand crusade against the Muslims peoples will be the bloodiest of all previous eleven crusades—including Napoleon’s crusade against the Egyptian Mamluks 1798 and Masonic British General Allenby’s crusade against the Ottoman Turks in Palestine when he took Jerusalem away from the Muslims in 1917—without firing a shot!

    When the smoke clears, “the holy city” of Jerusalem will have been made safe for the building of the Third Hebrew Temple (for the pope) and Iraq will have been thoroughly “renovated” for the rebuilding of the ancient City of Babylon and its temple (also for the pope!)

    Meanwhile, back in White apostate Protestant America and Canada, both nations will be conquered and partitioned by our coming SINO-SOVIET-MUSLIM INVADERS. The end of the Protestant Reformation will have been completed and the world will be plunged back into the pope’s Dark Ages when “the Vicar of Christ/Horus” was “the universal monarch of the world!”

      It won’t be the crusades it will be the Shia muslims against the Sunni muslims which is why Iran can not gain nuclear capabilities…Iran is stirring up a Shia revolution bloodbath and surrounding Saudi Arabia which is mostly Sunni. With total control of the Hormuz “oil chokepoint” in the Persian Gulf and new power in “liberated” Iraq, the Iranians have a brand new foothold for control. With Hormuz alone, Iran could cripple the world overnight.

      Today, Iran backs Shia militants in Iraq. They give them money and guns. They’ve even helped Shia politicians take over the Iraqi government to gain control in Iraq and get one step closer in their revenge against Sunni controlled Saudi. Just look furthersouth… to Yemen the battle wars on for Shia militant control.

      It sits just on the tip of the Arab peninsula… south of another key Saudi border and on the coast of another key oil strait called Bab-el-Mandeb meaning “Gate of Tears”.

      And like Hormuz, most oil states on the Red Sea can’t get a drop of oil out without shipping it through this water way. Over 3.3 million barrels go through every day. Yemen’s rebels have already hit towns across the Saudi border. And the Saudis have hit back, losing dozens of troops in the process. Saudi is literally surrounded by Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Afghan, Pakistan, Yemen and both oil straits.

      Big and small Gulf states are piling up weapons, stocking anti-missile batteries, and sandbagging their oil terminals, ports, and water desalinization plants…

      Not only is Saudi Arabia home to Mecca, Islam’s holiest place… but it’s also home to the corrupt and U.S.-allied Royal House of Saud, considered an insult to all Islam.

      In a country where they’ll cut off your hand for stealing and whip you for holding a glass of whiskey… Saudi princes indulge on cocaine and prostitutes, gambling, palaces, and more while the vast Saudi underclass starves on just $6,000 per year and 30% unemployment. As many as two million of that underclass is Shia. With a 1,354-year-old ax to grind to reign over the Persia empire and billions of dollars in oil revenues as the prize, the Middle East is a near-perfect formula for a FULL-ON war and astronomical gas prices which is why we so needed the pipeline and our own energy dependance…it doesn’t bode well for anyone and Newt was absolutely right on this…Iran is the threat of destabilization for the whole middle east…once our troops were pulled, the Shias started hitting Southern Iraq heavy…Iraq won’t be able to hold off for long…this is too serious and why I can’t vote for Ron Paul….tons of Christians are being massacred, Israel including women, children and babies will be murdered, our economy will collapse further with the oil prices, so will already volatile Europe….It’s an utter mess with grave consequences.

      Abu Dhabi alone has already bought $17 billion worth of U.S. anti-missile hardware. And the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia just splurged on weapons, to the tune of $25 billion.

      Unrest in Tunisia, Egypt and now Bahrain and elsewhere each represent distinct opportunities for Tehran. We all know with that much oil at risk, the USA WILL be pulled in and our military has already had 3-4 deployments and Obama just gutted it further..I am not for war but I don’t see us turning a blind eye on this and I think we need Oliver North back!…from Strategic Analyst at Outstanding Investments who study this region thoroughly.

        Most Americans would agree that there is something desperately wrong with the political and judicial system in the United States, but as many unsuspecting Americans point fingers at each other (Republicans and Democrats) what they don’t realize is that this suits the Zionist purpose.

        They hand down these policies to our so called leaders to advance the Neo-Zionist plot for total control over world affairs. Only a clear picture of what’s going on behind the facade of this so called ‘war on terror’ can one truly understand that this is a ‘war of terror’ designed for killing people and destroying property to stir up conflict to advance their agenda.

        Incredibly, the DC Zionist agents sent a huge American armada across the great seas to unleash a devastating military force against a people that never fired a shot at her, not even across her bow as they approached with their invading Christian army. As this invasion spreads throughout the Middle East and Asia, it will continue to be sold as a war on terror when in actuality it is a calculated plot.

        As a few unsuspecting Jews, a lot of Christians and Muslims are led to the slaughter, the Neo-Zionist and their agents will continue to enslave and rob us of our national treasures and many will cheer their own demise.

    joe, he sure threw your liberal media across the room. the bolsheviks were after gingrich after he was involved with removing that good old bolshevik jim wright from the speakership, now if you want to see some real shady deals, check out mr, wright. the bolsheviks went all out to get even after that, right or wrong it made no difference and with people like jon boehner, who we know now as a rino, was also trying to remove gingrich, all this was nothing but power plays and if you check the records, gingrich, unlike jim wright was not trying to make money under the table, he was trying to gain more power for the republican party. stop and think if the bolsheviks could have pinned anything on him he would have spent some time in the clinker.
    he was too smart for the bolsheviks and still is.

    I’ve been watching CNN coverage of the SC primaries. It’s disappointing to see Rick Santorum in 3rd place. With Herman Cain and Michelle Bachmann out of the 2012 race, Santorum is probably the next best choice for POTUS. On the bright side, although I’m not that crazy about Newt Gingrich, it’s good to see that he beat the RINO Romney. As for Ron Paul, it’s a blessing to see him in last place. He’s a nincompoop and a George McGovern type crackpot on foreign policy. In fact, this fool Paul may be even worse than Obama on foreign policy. Anybody who’s worse than BHO must be defeated, and should concede the race for POTUS!! Can you imagine this fool debating BHO on foreign policy?? I bet BHO could beat him without a teleprompter!! As for being pro-Constitution, there are many conservatives who ARE pro-Constitution. We certainly don’t need a crack-pot (who BTW wants to legalize both of these brain damaging substances!!) to protect the Constitution.

    Some of you people need to get your heads out of the sand!! Being anti-Paul is NOT being against our Constitution. Where in the Constitution does it say we should legalize crack or pot?? That makes as much sense as the liberal democraps who cite the welfare cause to justify Obamacare, redistribution of wealth, etc. Get real!! IMHO, Ron ‘Wrong’ Paul isn’t even worthy to be re-elected to Congress, much less the White House. Texas voters really should try to defeat ‘Wrong’ Paul in the next congressional primary. If you really are pro-Constitution, then you should attack those who are the true threat to our Constitution – that is – DEFEAT THE LEFTWING DEMOCRAP PARTY!!

      Concerning the decriminalization of drugs Ron Paul stated: It’s sort of like alcohol. Alcohol’s a deadly drug, kills more people than anything else. And today the absurdity on this war on drugs has just been horrible. Now the federal government takes over and overrules states where state laws permit medicinal marijuana for people dying of cancer. The federal government goes in and arrests these people, puts them in prison with mandatory sentences. This war on drugs is totally out of control. If you want to regulate cigarettes and alcohol and drugs, it should be at the state level. That’s where I stand on it. The federal government has no prerogatives on this.

      But does Ron Paul want decriminalize it?

      Ron Paul: I would, at the federal level. I don’t have control over the states. And that’s why the Constitution’s there. On the issue of drugs, we have spent nearly five hundred billion dollars on the War on Drugs, since the 1970s. Total failure. Some day, we have to admit it. Today, we have the federal government going into states that have legal medical marijuana, arresting people–undermining state laws–arresting people who use marijuana when they’re dying with cancer and AIDS, and it’s done with, as a compassionate conservative. And it doesn’t work. What it does, it removes the ability to states to do their things, and also introduces the idea that it’s the federal government that will get to decide whether we get to take vitamins, and alternative medical care, or whatever. Most of our history, believe it or not, had no drug laws. Prohibition has been an absolute failure for alcohol. Drug addiction is a medical problem. It’s not a problem of the law.

    • Jay

      Ron Paul on foreign policy: I believe our founding fathers had it right when they argued for peace and commerce between nations, and against entangling political and military alliances. In other words, noninterventionism.

      Noninterventionism is not isolationism. Nonintervention simply means America does not interfere militarily, financially, or covertly in the internal affairs of other nations. It does not mean that we isolate ourselves; on the contrary, our founders advocated open trade, travel, communication, and diplomacy with other nations.

      Thomas Jefferson summed up the noninterventionist foreign policy position perfectly in his 1801 inaugural address: “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none.” Washington similarly urged that we must, “Act for ourselves and not for others,” by forming an “American character wholly free of foreign attachments.”

      Yet how many times have we all heard these wise words without taking them to heart? How many claim to admire Jefferson and Washington, but conveniently ignore both when it comes to American foreign policy? Since so many apparently now believe Washington and Jefferson were wrong on the critical matter of foreign policy, they should at least have the intellectual honesty to admit it.

      Of course we frequently hear the offensive cliché that, “times have changed,” and thus we cannot follow quaint admonitions from the 1700s. The obvious question, then, is what other principles from our founding era should we discard for convenience? Should we give up the First amendment because times have changed and free speech causes too much offense in our modern society? Should we give up the Second amendment, and trust that today’s government is benign and not to be feared by its citizens? How about the rest of the Bill of Rights?

      It’s hypocritical and childish to dismiss certain founding principles simply because a convenient rationale is needed to justify interventionist policies today. The principles enshrined in the Constitution do not change. If anything, today’s more complex world cries out for the moral clarity provided by a noninterventionist foreign policy.

      It is time for Americans to rethink the interventionist foreign policy that is accepted without question in Washington. It is time to understand the obvious harm that results from our being dragged time and time again into intractable and endless Middle East conflicts, whether in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, or Palestine. It is definitely time to ask ourselves whether further American lives and tax dollars should be lost trying to remake the Middle East in our image. -Ron Paul

    • Karolyn

      Alcohol kills more and creates more havoc than any other drug. Would you have us go back to prohibition? We should be able to put anything we want into our bodies as long as it doesn’t infringe on the liberties of others. If more of the money spent on the “war” on drugs were spent on education and rehabilitation, there would be less use. I’m not talking about a “Just say no” campaign. I’m talking about serious education starting at kindergarten, teaching children how to live in the world without needing to take any substances. It’s OK to give kids drugs for ADHDD, thereby starting them on a path of believing drugs are OK and giving them a life dependent on drugs right out of the gate. There are better ways!

          • Jay

            Karolyn, there’s a reason why Newt-bots, Neocon-bots, control-freaks like APN want to maintain the strict laws against Cannabis, for the time-being, anyways. It’s not, as they claim, because they travel a higher moral ground than the rest of us. Oh no, these two-faced, hypocrites, are big-pharma, and big-government shills!

            First, let me state the obvious. Big Pharma is busily applying for — and has already received — multiple patents for the medical properties of pot. These include patents for synthetic pot derivatives (such as the oral THC pill Marinol), cannabinoid agonists (synthetic agents that bind to the brain’s endocannabinoid receptors) like HU-210 and cannabis antagonists such as Rimonabant. “The endocannabinoid system as an emerging target of pharmacotherapy,” which concluded, “The growing interest in the underlying science has been matched by a growth in the number of cannabinoid drugs in pharmaceutical development from two in 1995 to 27 in 2004.” In other words, at the same time the American Medical Association is proclaiming that pot has no medical value, Big Pharma is in a frenzy to bring dozens of new, cannabis-based medicines to market.

            Not all of these medicines will be synthetic pills either. Most notably, GW Pharmaceutical’s oral marijuana spray, Sativex, is a patented standardized dose of natural cannabis extracts. (The extracts, primarily THC and the non-psychoactive, anxiolytic compound CBD, are taken directly from marijuana plants grown at an undisclosed, company warehouse.) Does Big Pharma’s sudden and growing interest in the research and development of pot-based medicines mean that the industry is proactively supporting marijuana prohibition? Not if they know what’s good for them.

            First, any and all cannabis-based medicines must be granted approval from FEDERAL regulatory bodies such as the US Food and Drug Administration(WHAT A SURPRISE) — a process that remains as much based on politics as it is on scientific merit. Chances are that a government that is unreasonably hostile toward the marijuana plant will also be unreasonably hostile toward sanctioning cannabis-based pharmaceuticals.
            A recent example of this may be found in the Medicine and Health Products Regulatory Agency’s recent denial of Sativex as a prescription drug in the United Kingdom. (Sativex’s parent company, GW Pharmaceuticals, is based in London.) In recent years, British politicians have taken an atypically hard-line against the recreational use of marijuana — culminating in Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s declaration that today’s pot is now of “lethal quality.” (Shortly thereafter, Parliament elected to stiffen criminal penalties on the possession of the drug from a verbal warning to up to five years in jail.) In such an environment is it any wonder that British regulators have steadfastly refused to legalize a pot-based medicine, even one with an impeccable safety record like Sativex? Conversely, Canadian health regulators — who take a much more liberal view toward the use of natural cannabis and oversee its distribution to authorized patients — recently approved Sativex as a prescription drug. Of course, gaining regulatory approval is only half the battle. The real hurdle for Big Pharma is finding customers for its product. Here again, a culture that is familiar with and educated to the use therapeutic cannabis is likely going to be far more open to the use of pot-based medicines than a population still stuck in the grip of “Reefer Madness.”

            Will those patients who already have first-hand experience with the use of medical pot switch to a cannabis-based pharmaceutical if one becomes legally available? Maybe not, but these individuals comprise only a fraction of the US population. Certainly many others will — including many older patients who would never the desire to try or the access to obtain natural cannabis. Bottom line: regardless of whether pot is legal or not, cannabis-based pharmaceuticals will no doubt have a broad appeal. But wouldn’t the legal availability of pot encourage patients to use fewer pharmaceuticals overall? Perhaps, though likely not to any degree that adversely impacts Big Pharma’s bottom line. Certainly most individuals in the Netherlands, Canada, and in California — three regions where medical pot is both legal and easily accessible on the open market — use prescription drugs, not cannabis for their ailments. Further, despite the availability of numerous legal healing herbs and traditional medicines such as Echinacea, Witch Hazel, and Eastern hemlock most Americans continue to turn to pharmaceutical preparations as their remedies of choice.

            Should the advent of legal, alternative pot-based medicines ever warrant or justify the criminalization of patients who find superior relief from natural cannabis? Certainly not. But, as the private sector continues to move forward with research into the safety and efficacy of marijuana-based pharmaceuticals, it will become harder and harder for the government and law enforcement to maintain their absurd and illogical policy of total pot prohibition.

            Of course, were it not for advocates having worked for four decades to legalize medical cannabis, it’s unlikely that anyone — most especially the pharmaceutical industry — would be turning their attention toward the development and marketing of cannabis-based therapeutics.

            U.S. Patent 6630507
            The U.S. Patent Office issued patent #6630507 to the U.S.Health and Human Services filed on 2/2/2001. The patent lists the use of certain cannabinoids found within the cannabis sativa plant as useful in certain neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and HIV dementia.

            Since cannabis sativa (marijuana) contains compounds recognized and endorsed by an agency of the U.S. government why is it that marijuana remains on the Federal Schedule One list of drugs? The issuance of patent #6630507 is a direct contradiction of the governments own definition for classification of a Schedule 1 drug. US Patent 6,630,507 Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants.

            “Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention.”…

            The DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) classifies marijuana as a dangerous drug with no medical value. That classification contradicts mounds of evidence showing marijuana to be a very safe and effective medicine. Marijuana is more effective, much less expensive, and much safer than many drugs currently used in its place. Marijuana can provide excellent relief for those who suffer from cancer, AIDS, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, arthritis, rheumatism, asthma, insomnia, and depression.

            If knowledge of marijuana’s many medicinal uses, its remarkable safety, and hemp’s enormous potential as a natural resource become widely known, the DEA fears that support for Marijuana Prohibition will collapse, and thus threaten the DEA’s budget. To maintain the myth that marijuana/hemp is useless and dangerous, the DEA prohibits medicinal use of marijuana, denies researchers access to marijuana for use in clinical studies, and rejects all applications to grow industrial hemp. In 1988–after reviewing all evidence brought forth in a lawsuit against the government’s prohibition of medical marijuana–the DEA’s own administrative law judge (Judge Francis Young) wrote:

            Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed: A Judicial Indictment Of War On Drugs

            “The evidence in this record clearly shows that marijuana has been accepted as capable of relieving the distress of great numbers of very ill people, and doing so with safety under medical supervision. It would be unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious for the Drug Enforcement Administration to continue to stand between those sufferers and the benefits of this substance in light of the evidence.” Judge Francis Young of the Drug Enforcement Administration went on to say:

            “Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known. In strict medical terms, marijuana is safer than many foods we commonly consume.” Judge Young recommended that the DEA allow marijuana to be prescribed as medicine, but the DEA has refused. -Source: US Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration, “In the Matter of Marijuana Rescheduling Petition,” [Docket #86-22], (September 6, 1988), p. 57

            APN: It is a drug and it is THE gateway drug. I’ve witnessed it personally destroy numerous lives. Given that, how should we as a society deal with it? I mean I can line you up dozens of young folks that will testify to the fact of my aforesaid statements.

            That’s complete hogwash, APN. There is no scientific evidence for the theory that marijuana is a “gateway” drug. The cannabis-using cultures in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America show no propensity for other drugs. The gateway theory took hold in the sixties, when marijuana became the leading new recreational drug. It was refuted by events in the eighties, when cocaine abuse exploded at the same time marijuana use declined. As we have seen, there is evidence that cannabis may substitute for alcohol and other “hard” drugs. A recent survey by Dr. Patricia Morgan of the University of California at Berekeley found that a significant number of pot smokers and dealers switched to methamphetamine “ice” when Hawaii’s marijuana eradication program created a shortage of pot. Dr. Morgan noted a similar phenomenon in California, where cocaine use soared in the wake of the CAMP helicopter eradication campaign. The one way in which marijuana does lead to other drugs is through its illegality: persons who deal in marijuana are likely to deal in other illicit drugs as well.

            As to your ridiculous allusion that marijuana destroys lives, try selling your theory to some of the most successful people on the planet:

            SIR RICHARD BRANSON, 236th richest person in the world, founder of the Virgin empire, which encompasses everything from airlines to record stores to cell phones, and made his entire multi-billion dollar fortune from absolutely nothing. Not only does this man smoke weed, he gets high with his 21-year-old son. He has publicly stated that there’s nothing wrong with smoking pot, has petitioned for the legalization of pot, and even said that if it were legal, he’d sell it.

            RICK STEVES, Author of 27 top selling European travel guides, host of his own TV show and radio show, and a very outspoken pothead. He’s a member of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, and credits pot for turning him into a better travel writer by opening his mind to new things.

            AARON SORKIN, His work on The West Wing, both as writer and producer, earned him multiple Emmy Awards, and countless nominations for other awards.

            MICHAEL PHELPS, Has More Olympic Gold Medals Than Anyone In History. made headlines when photos of him and a bong surfaced. Since the scandal, Phelps has given a few interviews decrying his “bad judgment,” promising it was a dumb mistake that never happened before and won’t happen again… but we know that’s bullsh*t. Phelps was hitting that bong like a pro, not daintily toking some little amateur joint. With this in mind, we’re going to go ahead and assume this wasn’t Phelps’s first time. It might be his last, but it definitely wasn’t his first. This means that you can become the most world class athlete of all time and be a pot smoker at the same time. Stereotype shattered.

            MICHAEL BLOOMBERG, The Mayor of New York’s last name is associated with ‘business’ and ’success’, not ‘failure’ and ‘the munchies’. But if you’re one of those idiots who believes a pothead could never amount to anything, you’d have never guessed this was the way Bloomberg would turn out. Did he smoke pot when he was younger? In his own words “You bet I did. And I enjoyed it!”

            And the list continues:
            Montel Williams
            Ted Turner
            Stephen King
            Arnold Schwarzenegger
            To infinitum! So much fort your “Marijuana destroys lives” theory, APN!

    From Germany’s Das Spiegel on the buffoonery of the entire crop of GOP candidates; this passage on Gingrich:

    “…Then there’s Newt Gingrich, the current favorite. He’s a political dinosaur, dishonored and discredited. Or so we thought. Yet just because he studied history and speaks in more complex sentences than his rivals, the US media now reflexively hails him as a “Man of Ideas” (The Washington Post) — even though most of these ideas are lousy if not downright offensive, such as firing unionized school janitors, so poor children could do their jobs.

    Pompous and blustering, Gingrich gets away with this humdinger as well as with selling himself as a Washington outsider — despite having made millions of dollars as a lobbyist in Washington. At least the man’s got chutzpah.

    The hypocrisy doesn’t end here. Gingrich claims moral authority on issues such as the “sanctity of marriage,” yet he’s been divorced twice. He sprang the divorce on his first wife while she was sick with cancer. (His supporters’ excuse: It’s been 31 years, and she’s still alive.) He cheated on his second wife just as he was pressing ahead with Bill Clinton’s impeachment during the Monica Lewinsky affair, unaware of the irony. The woman he cheated with, by the way, was one of his House aides and 23 years his junior — and is now his perpetually smiling third wife.

    Americans have a short memory. They forget, too, that Gingrich was driven out of Congress in disgrace, the first speaker of the house to be disciplined for ethical wrongdoing. Or that he consistently flirts with racism when he speaks of Barack Obama. Or that he enjoyed a $500,000 credit line at Tiffany’s just as his campaign was financially in the toilet and he ranted about the national debt. Chutzpah, indeed.”

    • Karolyn

      Excellent piece, Jay. I would like to see APN answer all those points. It seriously disgusts me when I read something like this and see all the people who are taken in by……WHAT exactly? I just don’t get it! To me, he’s creepy, and I seriously don’t see what his wives have seen in him! And the latest is attractive! Perish the thought, but maybe he’s that good in bed?????

      • Jay

        APN is a dedicated Newt proselyte. If he should/will respond to the points above, it will be in the, his, usual manner; denial, equivocation, or rationalizing/spinning of the facts, with the intent to excuse the reprehensible character of his god, newt. Typical mind-set of a cult disciple!

        • APN

          …..and in the same way Jay is a dedicated Ron Paul Proselyte.

          All of your aforesaid “Newt” issues have been disclosed and discussed numerous times. I have weighed those issues and have my own opinions and conclusions.

          You appear to be mentally lazy because given YOUR facts, they appear to be lacking. You may just need to dig a little deeper into your stated “facts”. I will not do that for you because it would be a waste of my time to deal with your angry hatred for another human being.

          In addition, you seem to fail to understand that those of us who voted for Newt, do not perceive him as being the “perfect” candidate, however, most of us who DID vote for him, believe in the power of redemption. Something your worldly mindset cannot comprehend.

          As I’ve stated before on this blog, in all my years of life, I have found those like you who complain about the speck in his brothers eye incapable of seeing the plank in theirs.

          In closing, the “Cult” issue lies with you. I answer to a Higher Power, as referenced by numerous Founding Fathers.

        • Jay

          Well Karolyn, there you have it, as you can plainly see, APN, confirms by above post. Need i say more?

          • APN

            You didn’t say anything to begin with Jay or I did I miss something?

      • APN

        …..and that is where your mind is Karolyn. In other peoples beds and private lives. Your comments are confirmation to me of your very shallow and insecure thought process. You are a prime example as to just why the majority of those CAPABLE of leading us out of this mess, are sitting on the sidelines.

        ……….and to think people like you can Vote. Go figure?

    Hello, everyone. Pass this around, it very good, and really says it all.

    THE GERMAN PRESS

    The Republican presidential contest in America is a “freak show,” said Marc Pitzke in the German Der Spiegel. The candidates vie with one another to spew the most outrageous hard-right positions, denying evolution while endorsing torture and joking about electrocuting illegal immigrants. How did a major party in the world’s sole superpower become a “club of liars, debtors, betrayers, adulterers, exaggerators, hypocrites, and ignoramuses?” These know-nothings are enabled by a U.S. press that has been “neutered by the demands of political correctness” so that it can’t say what’s obvious: These people are daft! Instead, it “proclaims one clown after the next to be the new front-runner.” The current favorite, Newt Gingrich, is actually considered an intellectual merely because he can create sentences with multiple clauses. Scarcely a one has even the most basic grasp of foreign policy. One said Africa is a country, another that the Taliban rule in Libya. Collectively, “they expose a political, economic, geographic, and historical ignorance that makes George W. Bush look like a scholar.”

    THE FRENCH PRESS

    That’s the scariest part, said Lorraine Millot in the Paris Liberation. The only GOP candidate who knows a thing about diplomacy, Jon Huntsman, is dead last in most polls. The others “careen to extreme positions that include starting new wars and abandoning old allies.” And that’s when they even have a position. Herman Cain, now thankfully out of the race, was the front-runner even though he couldn’t find a single coherent word to say about President Obama’s policy on Libya. He even boasted of knowing little about foreign countries. And yet it was his adultery, not his astounding ignorance that brought him down.

    THE ENGLISH PRESS

    There’s a simple explanation for this bizarre phenomenon, said Max Hastings in the London Daily Mail. In the “lunatic, gun-toting badlands of America’s Hicks-ville, Tea Party country,” it’s considered suspiciously elitist to show any interest in modern science or the world beyond America’s borders. “Say what you like about British politics, no MP of any party would dare to offer themselves as town dog-catcher while knowing as little about the world as the Republican presidential candidates.” We take public service seriously. Yet we in Britain, and everyone in the rest of the world, will suffer if “one of the lunatics” vying for the nomination makes it to the White House. “The American political system has seldom, if ever, looked so inadequate.”

    Don’t worry, said Matthew Norman in the London Independent. The fact that Gingrich is the latest threat to Mitt Romney’s inevitability just “confirms how inevitable” Romney’s nomination is. The thrice-married, ethically challenged Gingrich is unlikable in the extreme. Which means the nominee will be Romney, “the slimiest, phoniest opportunist to run for president since…well, ever.” So sit back and enjoy this circus passing for a presidential election. It can’t possibly end in a GOP victory. Can it?
