Fined $300,000 and run out-of-town. Married three times and owes Tiffany’s 500 large…
Someone asked me today; if I would let Newt Gingrich handle my money and investments? He said his golf buddies wouldn’t let him run their Wendy’s.
The best President would be a man born and raised in the United States. An educated, civic man who has managed a successful business and is ready to commit to serving this country by upholding the constitution.
A man with these characteristics will be loyal to the country and obey our law if his motivation for doing it is, service. It should be obvious that a man who spends 25% or more, of his short time on Earth, to politics, is a career politician.
A career politician will do whatever his puppet masters need done. A true Patriot would do it for service. People like George Washington believed that the best government would include people who, after becoming prosperous and successful enough from their productivity, would be able to retire from their work to represent the people.
A true civic patriot would be a successful man who is either a successful business-man from supplying high-quality American goods and services to the Capitalist, Free-Market/and or a Veteran.
If that man served this country and shot/and or got shot at by an enemy of the
Constitution; it would be easier for me to find him well-qualified for the job.
The President is Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.
The movie Top Gun is the life of John Mcain. He was shot down over the Godless jungles of Vietnam where they held him prisoner for almost six years.
George HW Bush was shot down in the middle of the Pacific Ocean he was rescued
by a submarine right before being captured by the enemy. Do you remember when George Bush threw up on the Prime Minister?
One of the enemy was at the dinner. He told Bush that he remembered rowing out to capture him. He had to flee when the submarine popped up and shot at them. The man then told Bush that they were stuck on an island and starving and eating captured, fallen soldiers.
Many of our Presidents have fought in battles and wars defending this land, people, and Constitution. Many have also made significant contributions to mankind through the products and services made available because of their industry.
If one should choose his friends the way he would pick apples; shouldn’t he choose the President with the same discretion?
Of the people running for the highest office; who will respect the law? Who will repeal the Affordable Care Act, the parts of the NDAA that allow citizens to be “disappeared”, exiled, and imprisoned indefinitely. Which candidate will restore freedom and liberty by not trying to control every minutiae of your personal and business life?
- Does Nancy Pelosi have dirt on Newt Gingrich? (bazaardaily.com)
What has changed in South Carolina in the last two years? I thought the state was a conservative, capitalist, right-wing kind of place, but maybe it isn’t anymore.
A little more than two years ago, South Carolina’s governor, Mark Sanford, disappeared. Upon his return; he said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail. This turned out to not be true, for in fact; he was in Argentina with a woman who was not his wife.
The people of South Carolina demanded his resignation. Sanford refused to resign so they began the impeachment process. The impeachment fell through because his term was almost over, and the state legislature censured him instead.
I guess much can change in a couple of years. Despite his history of marital infidelities, and criticisms of capitalism; Newt Gingrich has won the Republican primary in South Carolina. “It’s that I articulate the deepest-held values of the American people,” he said. Isn’t the Republican Party, the party of family values?
Is attacking capitalism a deep-held American value? Gingrich may have won because of his attacks on Mitt Romney‘s capitalist practices at Bain Capital. His ads called Romney a vulture because companies he invested in went out of business. Gingrich made 1.6 to 1.8 million dollars consulting to the laissez-faire, free-market company*, Freddie Mac, and then the economy crashed. I thought South Carolina would be one of the last states to betray capitalism. Is this the same right-to-work state that was upset with the National Labor Relations Board for not allowing Boeing to open a plant there?
Newt Gingrich did at one time support the mandatory individual health insurance mandate which will eventually cause a loss of jobs when insurance companies go out of business. Newt Gingrich did sit on the couch with Nancy Pelosi and said that humans were causing global warming and the government needs to do something about it. What will the government do about it? The government’s solution to global warming will cost millions of jobs. Newt Gingrich scolded Bill Clinton for his extramarital affairs while he, himself was cheating on his wife.
Is the Republican Party going to become indistinguishable from the Democratic Party? This reminds me of Second Timothy Chapter 3.
Is Newt Gingrich the epitome of right-wing conservative principles and values? From his past; I might say no; but that was the past, and I guess many things can change in a couple of years!
* I was being sarcastic: Freddie Mac is a government sponsored entity, which is definitely not laissez-faire, free market capitalism.
