A voice crying out ,in the Wilderness of political analysis ! So here I am a defector from the Democratic Machine ,Morally Bankrupt ,Criminally Corrupt ,No Scruples ,No Conscience ,No Organic Shame and No Simply ,No GOD ,but in fact anti GOD ! So now I ,and according to recent report's ,about 2.5 million other Dem's are Independent's ! It is also reported that close to 1 million Republican's have deserted their party ,at a minimum ,I find that interesting ,of course it will never be explained ,Im amazed it was even mentioned ! Now I am out here ,and what do I discover !? A GOP that ,in their hatred and Fear of the Tea Party ,have stuck a deal ,with George Soros ,Rupert Murdoch ,Ted Turner,ie the Media , and the Dem's ,to support Romneybama !! While at the same time Pummeling Newt Gingrich !? In my 58 yrs ,I have never seen 1 Man so Massively Predicated upon ! A Man with a linage and pedigree and accomplishment's beyond question ! Contrasted ,with a democrat by another name ,Romney ! The Stink of FEAR radiating from the GOP and the DEM's is Horrendous to behold ! Now ,the Indie's (me included ) are familiar with the usual dem candidate programming ,and Romney utilizing it as a Republican ! Amazing (sickening ) ! We Indie's find ,we are in the same position as the Tea Party !? No top down representative's (We see Tea Party ,Gov's and Mayor's endorsing different candidate's !?) We are Indie's because we reject being forced into Obamacare ,We reject this sinful debt ,We reject ,Murder for the implementation of even more Gun law's ,We reject this Assault on Religious Freedom's and UnConstitutional Czar's and Unionization of Government employee's ! We also Adamantly Reject Mitty Romney !! There ,now are more of Us than of either side ! We will not be brainwashed by the media ,either side of the Media ! If Romney ,like Obamacare is forced on Us ,there will be a problem heretofore unseen in this Country ! I suggest that the Tea Party get theirhouse in order ,as we are trying to do ! The GOP is well on their way to your betrayal and destruction ! While we have other option's ! Mr. Levin God Bless You ,Your Work Your Service ,Your Health and Your Family ! Thank You !
The other top two candidates are not any better than Romney. Let's get back to reality here. And they fare far worse than Romney in electoral polls. Mitt is neither a leftist nor a dictator. I am not saying he is a good candidate. But he is the best in the race for beating Obama. It doesn't do any good to nominate other candidates, whose numbers show they cannot beat Obama.
That's very selective. You're talking about Newt Gingrich, one of the old heroes of the Reagan years, the man once called by the haters in the media "the Hard-line leader of the conservative Republicans", depicted as hard right. The same guy who was picking fights with people and even challenging Reagan for not being Reagan enough. His scores amongst conservative groups are higher than Santorum.
Mind you, he's definitely gone mushy since he hasn't had to run for public office for a lonnnng time. But despite his flaws, his heart is definitely conservative.
As for Santorum, he has all of the flaws you pin on Gingrich but none of the benefits:
That right there is the reason why Santorum harps on his family image and always puts scorn on his opponents. He doesn't have a record he can campaign on without lying about it. The same cannot be said about Newt, whose opponents can only tarnish by essentially being ignorant of his entire life.
As for Mormonism. If you are a Christian, then you have to acknowledge that Mormonism is an anti-Christ religion. It perverts the character and nature of Christ our Lord; it denies salvation through Christ alone; it denies even all of the essentials that Catholicism teaches. That is at least the one thing that unites Christian denominations... agreement that Jesus Christ is God, who died on the cross for our sins and rose again. Not only does Mormonism deny Christ's mission, it turns the Gospel into something retarded. And for what? A confirmed false prophet whose great predictions and promises never came true.
A failure to understand this is evidence of a poor education in Christian matters. Mormonism is NOT Christianity, it is Scientology but without the glamour.
(Look at me, I'm more Christian than the Santorum supporters! LOL)
Levin is such a radical. These ridiculous economic arguments about the minimum wage have no basis in reality. Having worked for an unpaid internship myself in 2008, there's no shortage of unpaid and lowly-paid grant-based apprenticeships and internships for young people. The minimum wage ensure that ADULTS who need REAL PAYCHECKS to survive make at the very least a fair wage.
There is no ideological difference between a Romney supporter and a liberal Democrat.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney is pro-abortion and signed a healthcare mandate authorizing the killing of babies at taxpayer expense.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney forced private Catholic hospitals to distribute the abortion pill.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney pioneered the same-sex marriage movement, is a strong supporter of same-sex rights, and was the first governor in U.S. history to install same-sex marriage in a state.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney's administration funded and distributed a radical gay publication called The Little Black Book which served as a guide to homosexual pick ups spots and multiple partner encounters in Massachusetts.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney's administration distributed The Little Black Book to school children even though it contained graphic descriptions of same-sex acts and Romney personally donated $10,000 to the publisher.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney appointed liberal justices to the bench 75% of the time while governor of Massachusetts, including advocates for abortion rights, same-sex marriage and global warming.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney was a pioneer in the fight against global warming and was the first governor to sign environmental legislation capping CO2 emissions on power plants which cost the state of Massachusetts thousands of jobs.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney opposed the Bush tax cuts and joined liberal congressman Barney Frank in condemning them.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney led a state takeover of private healthcare forcing citizens to choose between his mandate or a hefty fine and sought to impose this mandate on the rest of the nation in the first edition of his book.
The Romney support doesn't care that Romney believes blacks are cursed because of the color of their skin.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney raised taxes on local businesses by $309 million dollars a 20% increase as governor of Massachusetts.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney signed legislation increasing taxes on commercial property by $100 million dollars.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney increased state spending by $5.2 billion dollars in just 4 years and expanded the state payroll by 3,000 in that same time frame.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney personally invented 33 new fees for residents to pay and increased 57 others.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney invented a new fee for blindness and billed it to blind people.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney's failed economic policies produced a 26% increase in residential property taxes in Massachusetts -- the highest increase in 25 years.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney raised taxes and fees on the residents of Massachusetts by $740 million dollars.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney's administration provided a $5 billion dollar tax except bond to build a new Planned Parenthood clinic with Romney claiming he was out of the loop.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that under governor Romney, the state of Massachusetts ranked between 47th and 49th in the nation in job creation during his one term as governor.
The Romney supporter doesn't care that Romney's economic plan does not lower individual tax rates, but boldly maintains the current rates we pay under President Obama. Just more of the same.
The Romney supporter is either a liberal, an idiot or just plain naive.
Well, Generic Republican beats Obama fairly handily in all the polls. Can you think of a more generic Republican than Santorum? ;)
Not so sure thats true. Rick is good but if you think there is nothing in his closet you are setting yourselfd up for a fall like all the paulbots did.
I know Santorum has plenty of legislative baggage as well as comments the media will drag out at bigoted. None of the candidates is perfect. My guy was Paul Ryan. With him never running, and more conservative candidates having been eliminated, I want to like Santorum, but I'm still not on his or anyone's bandwagon.
I'm afraid you're right, but just looking at the demographics, I think Gingrich would lose, too. He has very high negatives. Married and divorced women don't like him and won't show up on election day if he's the nominee. The single women who have been voting for him in the open primaries are more likely to vote Democratic. That one voting block is enough to swing the election to Obama. Santorum really needs to dump the Eeyore vibe and step it up. I can't stand his support for unions, but I'm becoming more convinced every day that he's the guy.
I don't think that's necessarily true, Travis. I'm a divorced woman but that doesn't mean I lost my mental capacity in the settlement. I'm a thinking person and I can tell you now that I could care less about Gingrich's personal life. That's between him, his wife (or wives) and his Maker. Having said that...I would like to see a REAL conservative in the White House. I think you underestimate the thinking power of single women. We face the same fiscal problems married women do. The fact is that we face the high costs of gas, food, rents, medical insurance coverage, et. al., and WE do it without the help of a spouse. I don't want a hand out. I work for a living and I resent very deeply having to pay for someone else's health care or food stamps. We need someone in the hot seat who will tell them...GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND GET A JOB!
Now, Travis, don't go getting all rational there. Let's fantasize about our dream conservative candidate to beat Obama....who's not in the race.
The proper way to return is to email Scoop and ask to be unbanned.
If you want to return to your old disqus ID and keep your old comments (and likes, if you want) then do that. If you want to keep this new ID, I'll let it continue, but you need to contribute more than jabs at people or the site.
(This one was mild, so nobody cares.)
And 10million dollars came to Winning the Future from the daughter and son in law of Las Vegas casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson....for Gingrich that is!
Yes I have a question. Are those contributions from individuals at those companies? Surely these people are free to contribute to whomever they like. Don't you believe in the freedom of the individual to do as he pleases with his money?
All I know is the person who brought death panels to our attention was scared of Mitt Romney and decided not to run for president. If you want to be a player get in the game.
The problem with Bain is that there were multiple occasions when "stripping, gutting and selling the parts" was NOT a fallback, but their purpose to begin with.
Isn't it Romney's former company Bain that owns Rush and Levin's shows? Rush and Levin wouldn't have a job if it were not for guys like Romney. They would still be in some backwater somewhere if it were not for Romney and his colleagues. Corporatist indeed.
Will someone please hand that guy Levin a shovel and ask him to do a little real work at $3 an hour. After all, the minimum wage is terrible. Better for the taxpayers to subsidize the worker than they actually get paid a minimum wage. Right Mr. Levin? Please man, just 1 day of work, that's all I ask.
Yeah, Trump, Paul Ryan, William Buckley's National Review, Pat Buchanan. They're all in on it. You guys are too funny.
Ideology bumps into reality as usual with Levin and the others. Mr. Levin, there is that little matter of millions of immigrants pouring into the country depressing wages. Until you address the immigration problem, you have to keep a minimum wage. Please come out of the basement into the real world.
Yeah , thinking brown people are cursed by GOD is just goofy.....SHaadddup
LOL You have used a Mormon cult technique.
First you attempt to identify with the "mark" , then you pivet creating a diversion, offering up dilema , in an attempt to instill doubt in the marks mind.
You didn't just hang out with Mormons, you are a Morg
One difference between Coulter and Beck-Beck stands by his principles, whether you agree or disagree with him. Coulter blows in the wind toward whatever RINO that may favour her with a smile. Same goes with any talking head over @ FOX News these days.
One point there-thanks to Beck, would we have even knows who the "Spooky Dude" is and what he has done throughout countries in Europe?
It must have something to do with it, but it boggles my mind a little bit. It just seems like why bother with any distinction?
Kind of like Romney v. Obama.
Did Romney get his donor's list from Obama??
Just checked the list and according to this, http://tinyurl.com/8xvhlal guess who holds shares in EMC? Mr. Spooky Dude......"George Soros initiated holdings in EMC Corp.. His purchase prices were between $9.3 and $11.78, with an estimated average price of $10.4. The impact to his portfolio due to this purchase was 0.02%. His holdings were 49,000 shares as of 12/31/2008."
from the article:
"After living in Utah for three years, Romney flirted with running for office in the Beehive State. He even reportedly contemplated running as a Democrat, though in the post-Olympics buzz there was no office available until 2004 which was too late for someone riding the successes of the the Games.
Still it isn’t too much of a stretch to consider Romney running in Utah as a Democrat. Romney would likely have taken on Bob Bennett, then among the longest surviving senators in the Congress as a Democrat or replaced him on the Republican ticket like Senator Mike Lee did in 2010. In the shadow of 9-11, Congress had already earmarked $200 million to make the Games safe. After the attacks, Senator Robert Bennett of Utah appropriated $34.4 million. Romney often went with Bennett to lobby legislators to approve the additional funds."
"A Utah poll taken after the Olympics found Romney had 87% approval. Indeed, even today Romney, according to a recent poll, is very popular among Mormon Democrats, 62% of whom see him favorably."
While you may not like it, it is the hand you are dealt, so play it well.
Remember, you can influence the downline elections and ensure thousands of conservatives are elected going from the Senate down to the local alderman. If enough conservatives are elected downline then the political culture will change for generations, as there will be a wide and deep talent pool to draw from (someone elected now could still be in office in 2030). You can also ensure that you work to unseat the establishment Republicans by working to take over the party at the local level ward by ward. Think ahead to 2016 and beyond.
If the "one" is reelected, he will discover a solid mass of opposition all the way downline, all working to undo his legacy and Progressivism in general. If Romney is elected and as "squishy" as you all say, then he will be "guided" by the Senate and House in the correct direction, along with the public support of millions of TEA Party movement members.
You have numbers and motivation. The Dems may have raw numbers, but most of their drones are not motivated, or only move when the cattle herders come and move them. You have from now until November to move the cattle yourself, using every channel of communication (including Samizdat stickers on gas pumps and grocery stores announcing "higher prices brought to you by Obama"); go stampede the cattle away from the Democrats!
Thank God Mark is speaking out! Not only will Romney lose, but in the off chance that he would be elected, what then? This man not only isn't remotely a conservative, I don't think he's even a republican. Or at least not the way I've always understood republicans to be. (Is there an equivalent to a "blue dog" democrat?)
Anyway. What is the point of electing someone who requires constant "handling" & coaching? He doesn't get it and he hasn't "got it". Conservative isn't something you learn. Maybe it's something you grow or evolve into, but sometimes it's more a discovery; finding out who you really are. It just "is" & there ya go.
What on earth were these people (who have anointed Mitt Romney) thinking?
The only way they can save face is to back off- call their dogs off, and let it play out. Full stop.
Of course I'm assuming they're smart enough to do that.
same with the other blond bimbo whats her name...i have now renounced these two infiltrators as detrimental to the survival of the U.S. and will never support Anny or the other bimbo whats her name.....
i have said it before...The Beckster is a false prophet...he follows a false religion and expects us to believe he is the only one with "THE TRUTH"...sorry Beck...renounce your cult and then come and see me......................
False, they only have an affinity for the Constitution because it protects their whacky religious beliefs . They have a completely warped view of Christ himself
Mormons are liberals ,, their religous beliefs set the stage for their liberalism
They believe that a Utopia on earth rather than in Heaven. They also believe "some" men become God's themselves
Birgham Young was the creator of theocratic democracy , and install one in southern Utah , where they took heinous means to protect it .......see Moutain Meadows massacre.
You must be a foreigner, No Ron Paul supporter did not pick him over Romney.........Romney isnt' on their list at all.
Brigham Young had nothing at all to do with the Mountains Meadows massacre. He did not even get the message that there was a standoff until the killing had already been done. It was 300 miles away from Salt Lake where he was at the time.
Brigham Young was only governor of Utah for 7 years. After that the feds forcibly removed him. By sending Squaw killer Kearney against him and the rest of the mormons.
The Mountain Meadows Massacre was initiated,planned and carried out by John Lee and the 10th Regiment of the Mormon militia. They attacked (with the help of local Paiutes, Lee was an "Indian agent") the party, then after promising them safe conduct after a five day siege, betrayed and massacred the adults and many of the children, then took the surviving children (the youngest, they had murdered the children that were old enough to realize what was going on) and scattered them throughout the local community. Most of cattle and the possessions of the victims were auctioned at tithe house to other Mormons. Whether or not Young had knowledge or approved is unknown and still debated by scholars. At least one Mormon historian claims Young had been advised of the group passing through, but claims Young's message to let the group pass arrived too late. Let's not marginalize the atrocity and tragedy of this by calling it a "stand off" shall we? It was murder pure and simple.
Religion isn't the issue. If you are pro-Constitution, then you must accept article VI.
Stick with the facts, which are exactly as Levin laid out. Don't start stirring up religious hatred.
