I slept through the debate last night and as I hear, I didn’t miss all that much. Could someone please explain to me why Ron Paul-who has not won one primary-is still in the debates? Oh, and a vote for the Huckster is a vote for McCain. IMHO.

Let’s get down to the meat of the topic. I was over at Stop the ACLU, and they covered the debate for us. So did several others, and there are links to their sites. Here are some interesting ones:

Stop the ACLU: Focus Group Says Romney and Huckabee Score, Stop the ACLU: McCain Lies About Romney, Ace of Spades HQ: Debate Open ThreadUpdate: Romney Vs. McCain On Who Flinched Less In War’s Darkest Hour– Advantage, Surpisingly Enough, Seems To Be…Romney, Sublog: Hot Air: Hot Air » Blog Archive » McCain considered benchmarks in January 2007, Sublog: The GOP Front-Runner?, Macsmind: Thoughts on the Debate – Romney wins, McCain’s an ass, Captain’s Quarters: GOP Debate: Live Blog And Wrap-Up Show (Update: Romney Wins), Bill’s Bites: 2008.01.31 Politics and National Defense Roundup…, Blog-o-Fascists: McCain Lying On Tape, Webloggin: Update: Is McCain Anti-Business? Anderson Cooper: Moderator, Debater or Simply a Liberal Hack? and Stop the ACLU: McCain Wouldn’t Vote for His Own Immigration Bill.

I find this last one very disturbing, since just the other day he said he would sign the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill. Oh my, that sure is some straight-talking for ya, eh? And they wonder why we do NOT trust them…

There are also several video versions so that you can decide for yourself. I choose not to waste my time, but that’s just me. Maybe I will later, but I’m just upset right now. We cannot a Juan McCain…

PS: I do not wish to give anyone the impression that I support Romney, because I do not. Now you can see my dilemna. I know enough him to make me sick. What a choice. Why is it that the largest state in the union gets stuck with the nuts? Oh well. I guess it’s to each their own. Just remember the most important thing. It is not your damn pocket. It is our men and women who are in harms way protecting your selfish butts from having your throat slit. Or have you forgotten already?

Barack wiped the state of South Carolina with Hillary Clinton. He beat her with over 20 percentage points. He also beat her in almost every category. I LOVE IT! He may be wrong on many of the issues, but what an amazing Democrat. If we have to lose to a Democrat, I’d rather it be him.

Let’s face it. We have crap running for president. No, I will not vote for McCain just because the establishment believes he’s next in line. Have you ever heard of anything so ridiculous? We are not the Senate! LOL.

I will not vote for Mitt’s ‘hillarycare’, illegal alien policies, abortion forced into the ‘hillarycare’ on his way out of the door, and homosexual propensities. (Not him, his politics, so calm down.)

I would vote for Rudy. Why? Because I can trust what he says. I know he gets down in the streets and fights mean. I’M FROM NEW YORK. We all do. Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Sudan, NK and China will all be afraid to have him as our president. That should tell you something right there.

He isn’t pro-life? No kidding. However he didn’t try to re-invent himself by lying to us about it, and he also promised to appoint constitutionally literate judges. That is the most we can do about the abortion issue right now, AND YOU KNOW IT. Sorry for that outburst, but I get tired of having to remind people that should these things.

PS. No, I have not lost my mind or my way. I’m just tired of RINO’s running the government we have fought too hard and too long for to watch another RINO give conservatives a bad name. We deserve better than that. I believe if we do lose, Sen. Obama will not try do to us what the Clinton’s did. You know, make us out to be evil, or have you forgotten? If we have to be ruled by Democrats, I’d much rather see it done by a true, good Democrat. Not some idiot RINO. They will not get the message if we keep giving them money, voting for them and they keep giving us crap…

Now for the Open Trackback. I suppose I am not doing it right. I am suppose to allow you to choose whether or not you would like share your material here. I’m also not suppose to use the ‘ping chooser’ at the same time I have an open trackback. I do not understand why, but if those are the rules of etiquite, then so it. Have at it, and have a nice weekend.

As we all know, Iran is seeking to attain nuclear power. Some may argue that this power may be domestic only, while others suspect that it was desired for nefarious purposes. One of those purposes being nuclear weapons. Therefore the Israel Project asked each candidate for their position on this issue (Iran).

(Make sure you have enough room in your Windows Word Processor or you’ll get an error message, like I did. Grrr.)

For a partial list of statements by major Democratic candidates.

For a partial list of statements by major Republican candidates.

How do you we suppose Iran is interested in a nuclear weapon?

ElBaradei: Iran will have nuclear weapons in three to eight years.

The timeline for an Iranian nuclear weapon was three to eight years, Army Radio quoted IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei as saying in an interview with the French Le Monde Monday.

“I cannot judge their intentions, but I can assume that Iran is indeed interested in obtaining a nuclear bomb,” ElBaradei said. [Continue reading the Jerusalem Post article.]

How does he come to this conclusion?

Iran says has built new long-range missile.
Tue Nov 27, 2007

By Reza Derakhshi

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran said on Tuesday it had built a new missile with a range of 2,000 km (1,250 miles), a step analysts said could add more power to Tehran’s conventional arsenal when tensions over its atomic plans are rising.

Defence Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar did not say how the new weapon differed from the Shahab-3, a missile officials had previously said could hit targets 2,000 km away, far enough to reach Iran’s arch-foe Israel. [Continue reading the Chantix article.]

The Israel Project will be in Iowa and New Hampshire to keep these candidates informed about this issue.

To learn more about the Iranian threat, read the key facts about Iran.

To end this post for those of us who are not blind, I will use a quote from the president of The Israel Project: “The power of the purse should be used for peace– but time is running out as Iran is racing towards nuclear capacities that threaten the world,” said Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, founder and president of The Israel Project.

This is good news for Rep. Duncan Hunter. To have one of the most Conservative senators (in New Hamphsire, no less!) endorse you is a big deal. Vermont is the first state to actually vote as we know it. Many people believe that whoever wins or suprisingly comes close to winning will go on to become president of the United States. Below is a copy of that endorsement:

Dear New Hampshire Friends:

After spending several weeks listening to all of the candidates, I have decided to support Congressman Duncan Hunter for President. I do not take this decision lightly. There are a lot of fine men running for this office and I know that many of you may have already made your choice. Your vote in the “First in the Nation Primary” is a very precious and personal right. Your decision will likely determine who will be the next leader of the free world. What an awesome responsibility! I only ask that you give serious consideration to the points that I make in this letter of endorsement for Congressman Hunter before you vote.

The Republican Party, but more importantly our nation, needs strong conservative and inspirational leadership as we continue to face the threats to our liberty in the form of immorality, corruption, terrorism, a mountain of debt, border insecurity, loss of jobs and attempts to weaken our national defense. Here is why Duncan Hunter is that leader!

I am sure that you are aware that I fought the battle for the conservative cause in New Hampshire for over 20 years. It was not an easy battle. Conservatives pay a heavy price for standing up for their principles. I can speak from personal experience on that. The Republican Party has lost its majority in Congress because it slowly and steadily has walked away from the “core values” that have made it a great party for the past 150 years in America . Remember Ronald Reagan? Liberals and moderates worked hard to defeat him in the New Hampshire primary in 1980 but he prevailed in spite of them! He will be remembered as one of our greatest Presidents because he stood on principle, but also because we conservatives in New Hampshire gave him the victory that propelled him to the White House! When President Reagan came into the oval office in the morning, he knew exactly where he wanted to take the country. He did not need an inbox full of directions, consultants, polls or focus groups to tell him what his core values were. There will never be another Ronald Reagan but fellow Californian Duncan Hunter can pick up the Reagan torch and light the way for America to come back from the dangers we now face. Congressman Hunter is a moral man, an inspirational leader and a no nonsense conservative who will always put “principle above politics” in the image of the late great New Hampshire patriot Meldrim Thomson.

I had the enormous privilege to serve with Congressman Hunter for 18 years in Congress. He has been my personal friend for nearly 25 years. I can personally attest that he is a man of impeccable moral and family values, a great patriot and a leader. I have seen him fight even when others were prepared to give up. Congressman Hunter inspired me and many other young conservatives in the 1980s to continue the fight even when it was bleak. This has not been an easy campaign for Congressman Hunter. While he has been out on the campaign trail his son has been serving in Iraq and the Hunters lost their entire home in the recent fires in Southern California . He has been largely ignored by the pollsters and the media. I urge the people of New Hampshire to send a message to the pollsters and the Washington media elite. The people elect a President not the pollsters! You have the opportunity to do for the nation what you did when you elected President Reagan in 1980 by sending Duncan Hunter out of New Hampshire with a big win and on to the White House in January of 2009! Can you imagine listening to CNN and all of the talking heads trying to explain how they were wrong as Hunter claimed victory? Wouldn’t that be worth the price of admission? You can make it happen with your vote in January! Do not be intimidated by these spinmasters. You control the destiny of America and not them!

The American people need to take control of this country. We are a republic, not a democracy. We elect leaders to stand up for us as they make decisions. Duncan Hunter has proven that he can lead. He has been tested. If given the chance as President, he will inspire people, young and old, to rally to our nation in this time of need. Congressman Duncan Hunter for 25 years has stood up for the rights of the unborn, to balance the budget, to cut the pork out of the spending bills, to strengthen our national defense by supporting our troops and providing them the weapons they need, to seal off our borders by building a fence along the US/Mexican border and to keep American jobs in America. He is a known entity. You do not have to guess about what he might do on these critical threats to our security. Imagine President Duncan Hunter leading our nation and using the “bully pulpit” to lead on these issues! I am proud to support this great American patriot for President. If you really want to see change, then I urge you to vote for him. He is what American needs now more than ever! Thank you!

Senator Bob Smith
Tuftonboro, N.H. and Sarasota, Florida.

As I remember, for full disclosure’s sake, Sen. Smith did leave the Republican Party for about a month or two while he was running for president in 2000. Many people did not forgive him for that. I was one of them. At least for a while.

Why did I not forgive him? If you want change, if you want to help, then you should do it from within. That used to be my philosophy. I do not know what has happened to my party, but it certainly is not the fiscally responsible, pro-life, pro- all the Amendments – the Constitution – the Declaration of Independence, and just plain decency along with the will to fight for what is believed to be correct. I do not see this anymore, and maybe Sen. Smith saw this before I did. Either way, all is forgiven. How could it not when I am sitting here wondering where can I go?

Today is Samantha Burns’ OTA Weekend and Open Trackback Linkfest Haven Oasis. Please have a nice weekend, and please have a wonderful and safe Merry ChristMass. Please keep our men and women who cannot be at home during this season because they are protecting our liberties close to your heart. Also remember their families, the empty chair for Daddy or Mommy, keep them in your prayers. Maybe if you know someone like that, you may even bake them some cookies or see if there is a need. Come on. ‘Tis the season to give. Thank you.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO HALOSCAN USERS
If you are using haloscan, please understand that I will have to leave my trackback in your comments section. For some reason, haloscan has not been available to me for 3 days now. It does not appear as though the problem will be solved soon, either. I am so p***ed off! (lol) Please leave your comment section open. Thank you.

Simplified Mitt

Gregg Jackson has written another wonderful article about some of the facts about Mitt Romney, candidate for president of the United States, in a very thoughtful and well researched manner. I shall attempt to simplify each of the 8 points into a single sentence. It is still better if you would go read the article in whole, since he lived in Taxachusetts and I did not.

Romney: Secrets The Media Are Hiding From You.

1. Mitt Romney was elected governor of Massachusetts on a pro-homosexual, pro-gun control and a pro-abortion agenda.

2. Is he that liberal? He resided over the Big Dig which killed several people, yet he left it under democrat control, and he imposed a mandatory health care disaster only Hillary could love.

3. What about pro-life? His health care plan covers abortions, and his record strongly supports his political leanings to pro-abortionists.

*4. Well, family values are better? He not only signed into law the homosexual marriage law, but he went as far as to fire anyone whose religious beliefs contradicted with his ‘family values’ in the clerks office.

**5. Okay. Maybe he’s a fiscal conservative? Health care premiums have doubled, and Taxachusetts now pays 75% of their income in taxes.

6. What about judges? He passed over 27 of 36 conservative and/or GOP judges to place Democrats, independents and two homosexuals on the bench.

7. But can we trust him? In a Pew Center Poll, only 12% of the people thought of Mitt Romney as being honest. Just ask Teddy Kennedy why…

8. I will allow myself one quote from the article: ‘If pragmatic means “what works,” then what is it about Mitt that works? When most Americans wouldn’t vote for Mitt in spite of all the money he’s thrown out and all the media glorification, doesn’t that seem to be the opposite of pragmatism? Contrary to conservative talk radio common wisdom, Mitt is the un-pragmatic choice. If Mitt does to America what he did to the “Birthplace of American Democracy,” America will be in a nose-dive by 2012.’

And we have run the gammit. Do you want to take a chance with someone who reminds me so much of Bill Clinton that it’s eerie? If not, you can help Duncan Hunter to rise to the top. It isn’t too late. All he needs is enough face time as they gave this loser.

I’ll be honest with you. I do not like him. NO. It is not because of his religion, so shut up about that. He cannot use that to hide behind every time someone tries to show you the facts about his record. My God. We USE TO debate about issues. Do we need to walk on eggshells now because he chose to be a Mormon? I think not! What does everyone expect? Is it now just a beauty contest in these dangerous times we live?

UPDATE: See what happens when you try to trim important news articles? I got it wrong.

*”4. Romney never “signed” any same sex marriage bill. There is no law. That is the point. He ordered justices of the peace and town clerks to perform same sex marriage ceremonies or be fired, and also authorized changing the certificates from husband and wife to “partner A” and ‘partner B.” He actually broke the law by doing this since the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruling in Goodridge was only an opinion that it was “unconstitutional to ban same sex marriage.” But since court decisions are just opinions and not LAW, Romney illegally ordered that same sex marriage ceremonies be performed.”

**”5. I never said in my article that Mass. citizens pay 75% taxes. I only wrote that they will – in the future – as his socialist Health Care plan raises costs.”

It’s good to have him help me when I make a mistake or a misquote. I do not want anyone to think I never make mistakes. I do. I rely on all of you to help me to correct them as soon as possible! That is why I have always suggested you go directly to the source. 😉

Gregg has also offered a very good site of someone who has covered this in depth. His site is BizzyBlog, and he is our (well, mine anyway!) economic advisor. (By reading his blog. lol)

    As you may know, I am supporting Rep. Duncan Hunter. Why? There are many reasons for my doing so, and here is one of them:

    HUNTER CALLS ON ROMNEY TO OPPOSE BAIN PARTNERSHIP WITH CHINESE COMPANY

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 2, 2007

    CONTACT: Gary Becks (619) 334-1655, Gary.

    San Diego, CA – – – Presidential candidate and current Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, Congressman Duncan Hunter, today called on former Governor Mitt Romney to send a “clear statement” to the leadership of the company he founded, Bain Capital, to terminate a proposed business deal with a controversial Chinese corporation seeking to acquire U.S. defense contractor 3COM. Bain Capital is attempting to form a business arrangement with Huawei Corporation, a Chinese corporation founded by an officer of the Peoples Liberation Army of Communist China, which faces allegations of assisting Saddam Hussein in the targeting of U.S. aircraft and in helping the Taliban develop surveillance equipment.

    “I am extremely concerned that Governor Romney’s company would tout a highly suspect Chinese corporation as a strategic partner,” stated Hunter. “Forming a business partnership with a corporation known to have direct ties with terrorists and dictators while, at the same time, openly seeking to acquire a major U.S. corporation that performs vital cyber security work for the Department of Defense, can only be characterized as irresponsible.”

    A resolution has been introduced in Congress, H.Res. 730, which states; “The preponderance of publicly available evidence clearly suggests that as currently structured, the proposed transaction involving Huawei threatens the national security of the United States and should not be approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States .” A copy of this resolution is provided.

    Hunter stated in his letter to Governor Romney, “…while it is true that you no longer control Bain Capital, the contributions you have received from its principals as its founding member indicate that your influence within the company remains strong.

    “Further, while the Committee on Foreign Investment has yet to rule on the Huawei transaction, this corporation’s connection to Saddam Hussein, the Taliban and the Army of Communist China should clearly disqualify them from becoming, in the words of your former company, “a strategic partner” in acquiring a U.S. firm such as 3COM, which performs vital cyber-security work for the U.S. Department of Defense.

    “This letter is a request that you immediately issue a statement of policy that this transaction should be terminated on the grounds of national security. Please let me know what you intend to do.”

    A copy of Congressman Hunter’s letter, as well as two articles regarding Huawei acquisition efforts are provided. Media are encouraged to contact Gary Becks at (619) 334-1655 for additional information or to arrange an interview with Hunter.

    Will Romney answer the demand? Not if he believes Rep. Hunter has no chance of doing him harm. This is a sad situation, because there are many people who support Duncan. They are just being persuaded by the media and even radio talk show hosts who, after speaking to Duncan, really like him but are tied into ‘their’ candidate. That is why he cannot get his message out. If you would like to know more about Rep. Duncan Hunter, please visit his site or come here. Thank you, and have a nice day.

    There is going to be another debate which will be held at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center at the University of Michigan (Dearborn). It will hosted by the Michigan Republican Party. Congressman Duncan Hunter will be participating in this debate. As stated, it will be held on October 9, 2007.

    The TV coverage will not be for those of us without cable, but if you do have cable you may watch it on CNBC who will be broadcasting the two-hour debate beginning at 4:00PM. MSNBC will re-broadcast the event at 9:00PM the same evening. I do believe that is Eastern Standard Time, but you may want to check with your TV guide.

    Have a great time, and write about it. I wantt to know how it goes. Would someone please keep count of the number of questions Duncan Hunter is allowed to answer without being cut off? He is my nominee, and I am getting tired of everyone else getting all the face time. If only they could hear him, then the party would not need to be so annoyed.

    Duncan Hunter is the true conservative on this stage, and he has served his country, our country, not only in the Congress, but also as a Marine and a Ranger. Check him out! His son is also running for Congress: Hunter for Congress. At this moment he is unable to campaign however, because he is in Afghanistan on his third tour of duty! (You may still help his campaign with a donation.) Vote Hunter! (Both ways, both times, and often. lol)

    Update: Duncan Hunter was interviewed by The Philadelphia Jewish Voice. It is a good interview. You should read it if you would like make an informed choice. Thank you.
