Rational Nation USA
Liberty -vs- Tyranny
Simply awe inspiring. Imagine, the candidate perhaps least likely to safe guard individual liberties and the cornerstones of constitutional law succeeded in duping South Carolina republican primary voters into handing him victory.
Congratulations, Mr. Gingrich, as a matter of courtesy, are in order. Beyond such courtesies Rational Nation USA, as well as the majority of Americans see through your superficial veneer to the real anti constitutional conservative you really are.
Moving on to Florida (and beyond) perhaps primary voters will be more educated on the Gingrich propensity for half truths and outright false representations. Gingrich's personal marital situation aside the man is certainly one that deserves very close scrutiny.
While representing a political ideology different than President Obama's he does not represent the America that our founding fathers envisioned. The socialist statist label that conservatives paint on the President is just as, if no more so true of Mr. Gingrich.
Anyone following the republican presidential hopefuls with a serious penchant for quality can't help but be appalled by the lack of both political talent and credibility, Ron Paul aside.
When considering who you want to represent your interests (and your liberties) look very carefully at each candidates public record. Consider their stump speeches and debates in relationship to their record. You may be in for some surprises.
It has been standard fare for all republican candidates and partisan conservative talking heads to state that "any of the republican candidates on the stage are better than Obama". And perhaps this is true. However, remember this... whomever runs against Obama, should he win the general election, will be our president for at least four years. As I have always said: statism is statism, no mater the color of its mascot.
Republicans be careful, very careful whom you choose.
