If you have read other e-mails that I have sent out regarding ALL OF THE CANDIDATES, YOU KNOW THAT I CANNOT, AT THIS TIME EVEN THINK OF VOTING FOR ANY OF THEM. The reason being, they have not even discussed or presented their views on how they would remove Obama from the office of the Presidency. Karen, how can they all stand up there and say that they will uphold our Constitution, when nothing is discussed about the fact that Obama should not be in the White House and he certainly should not be on any state’s ballot for the Presidency.
Karen, I do believe that that their may be many reasons why they are pushing Romney…..Romney has yet to prove that he is a Natural Born Citizen….Obama not a Natural Born Citizen, so Romney not a Natural Born Citizen….Romney part of the New World Order……Romney For Obamacare! Romney Follow Soro and the New World Order. Karen, so many of our Elected Officials are within this Movement of the New World Order and the Agenda 21. I do agree with some of the Pappas’ opinions, but I just cannot respect any of them, and this deeply distresses and sadden me beyond words.
Would it not be great if one of those Patriotic Sheriffs decided to Run for the Presidency? Maybe OUR Sheriffs will accomplish the success that they are striving to for All America. Karen, Take care. God be with you.
My friends, what we are witnessing during this horrendous campaign season, is about as low, dirty, filled with lies and brutal as any I recall in my long lifetime. The GOP has long been known for eating their own, but this year,they have turned the practice into an art form that threatens to implode the party. But far worse, the zealous attacks on Gingrich, all based on lies and distortions of fact, threaten to destroy the GOP’s platform AND worse, the entire campaign, giving it lock stock and barrel to Obama! The whole business is unthinkable, and outrageous, at a time when outrageous is the clarion call of the day and one can barely fathom things could get any worse. Well, not only are they getting worse, but we are shooting ourselves in the foot, over and over and over. It was proven long long ago that the so-called “establishment” of the GOP ran amuck, picked and/or supported losers, and permitted apathetic platform that was either weak, off point, absurd, or irrelevant. They are doing it all in spades now, having apparently lost focus on the end game – that being to defeat Obama and put to pasture his radical destruction of the U.S. I know personally too many people I regard as ‘smart’ who have bought the whole pile of CRAP that has been dished out for a long time about Romney and Gingrich – believing the attacks on the Gingrich side, while buying the bullshit about Romney as the true conservative? the shoe-in winner? Oh please – I am sick beyond words about what the GOP, the tea party, and the conservative movement has spiraled into hell. What are they thinking? Clearly they are not at all. This is not a matter of policies, ideology, issues – it is utter and total character assassination at its worst and ugliest.The biggest question we must all ask is WHY THE HELL are those traitors to Conservatism rendering the party into demise? WHY? What truly is their agenda? If I had to guess, I’d have to say that those operating at this super base level of vitriol are operating at someone else’s behest – could it be that the GOP has already been taken over by Soros? I know he’s been working on it for some time now, but I thought he had a long way to go. It would seem perhaps he has already acquired sufficient share to control the party. Whatever it is that is going on, it is high time we all wake the “F” up, and stop this steam roller of a machine on its course to our destruction. George Soros recently made two shocking statements that people are mostly ignoring, both made in the last couple of weeks: 1) He predicts that the “occupy” movement will turn very violent in the Spring – well DUH, he should know, he funds the movement and has seen that they are trained accordingly; and 2) there is virtually no difference between Romney and Obama. BELIEVE THE MAN – he knows of what he speaks, and he has an odd, inexplicable way of sharing his ‘insider’ knowledge – almost as if he finds great pleasure in waving the red flag in front of the bull; or toying with Americans. Whatever the game he plays, we can be sure of one thing – he has NO intention of losing, no matter how much he must spend, no matter how many fences he must straddle, and he will control the outcome on both sides of the coin, thus ensuring he wins no matter what! Keep that in mind the next time you look favorably upon Romney!
Never in my adult life, and I’ve been around a while, have I observed the level of attacks on a candidate from one’s own Party as I observe ongoing against Newt Gingrich. People who have held my respect for years are engaging in a character assassination ritual which is every bit as despicable as their characterization of the object of their disdain. Long time admired Ann Coulter is about to have a nervous breakdown and has gone off a cliff with her angst and level of vitriol. The Drudge Report and Fox News, not to mention the “left” might just as well fly a banner of disparagement against Gingrich and endorsement of Romney. Today I read another hit piece on Gingrich by R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., Editor in Chief and Founder of the American Spectator.Isn’t it co-incidental that piling on occurs just as the national cameras are focused on the Florida primary? Amazing how that works! The other candidates cannot win on the merits of the strength of their positions, debating skills or accomplishments so they turn to their friends in media who are evident shills for Romney. So, like is too often the case, the others seek to win by tearing down their opponent since they are incapable of winning on the strength of their positions or arguments, on the issues. Is Romney, Paul or Santorum bad? Only to the extent that they are not up to the task of winning on the merits and all they have left is to resort to negative attacks. When Gingrich first defended himself, the shills (that would be Fox News and Drudge) immediately painted Gingrich as angry and that he was being negative. Huh? Did I miss something? Wasn’t the first barrage of negative ads put out by Romney and Paul in Iowa? Yes, I thought I remembered that correctly.It frustrates them that Newt, despite the fact that they put him on his political deathbed shortly after announcing his candidacy, and again after Iowa continues not only strong but leading. Could any of the others survive the slings and arrows as he has? No! His campaign Staff resigned early on and reported to Perry for duty, but then Perry endorsed Newt, Humm! When he (as did “The Donald”) criticized Paul Ryan’s plan, they went loopy that he would speak the truth. They emphasize out of context distortions, like the “$1.6 million he was paid” by Fannie Mae; and that he “resigned in disgrace” with a $300K “fine” are just that, out of context, intended to mislead distortions of the facts.His resignation from the congress according to a Washington Post was because of losses during November 1998 Congressional elections that had nothing to do with the $300K reimbursement he agreed to make. Read the account and related articles from the November 8th 1998 edition of the WP yourself, then one can make an informed decision: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/govt/leadership/stories/gingrich110798.htm.Establishment Republicans Party operatives such as Ann Coulter, Fox News in the person of Brit Hume and Carl Rove, and Drudge Report should carefully consider the consequences of their damning behavior toward the Party’s most likely candidate whether or not they succeed in destroying that candidacy. Nancy Reagan has bestowed the “Reagan Mantle” on Gingrich, and Michael Reagan has endorsed him…and yet Dick Morris (Fox News) quips the most laughable line of the season: “Romney is Reaganesque.” Sure, and I am George Patton or Douglas MacArthur, or both.Was Newt perfect while he was Speaker in the way he dealt with issues? No. But, Newt Gingrich did more in four years for the American people as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives than any, no, all his competitors combined have done in a lifetime.Newt’s morals: So what is the issue…his distant past from which he has turned away, confessed, repented and has been happily married for twelve years? He has let the past go, but evidently a lot of good people have not. Thank the Lord for salvation from sin, and thank Him for his forgiveness, otherwise we are all “toast” and Jesus will have died in vain. But, I think not. David Hanson has an excellent piece in National Review Online, on the subject of Presidential morality.
http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/289250/fidelity-and-presidency-victor-davis-hansonI am for getting rid of Obama. My analysis is spot on that Ron Paul doesn’t have a chance and he as much as says so although during the Thursday debate was more certain; Romney is a Mormon whose personal values may be okay, but intentionally pulling the plug on failing businesses, not to preserve capital but to make money is not my idea of how true capitalism is supposed to work; and, he lies and supports liars; and Santorum would be crushed by the media in the first five minutes after the nomination. At this juncture all Santorum is succeeding in doing now is to diminish the chances for conservative leadership. Coulter’s “Romney is more conservative than Gingrich,” may actually be one up to Morris’ “Reaganesque” comment in the comedy department. Romney may be better looking than Reagan and younger too, but Reaganesque? Stop it Morris, it makes my sides hurt.That brings me back to imperfect Newt who is penitent and has matured; and who the Lord has molded into the man to best lead this nation, just as imperfect and impetuous “Peter” (Wasn’t Peter the disciple who denied knowing Jesus three times the night of Jesus’ betrayal? Yes, that Peter.) was the leader of the early “Christian” Church.Semper FidelisBob Pappas

The Debate ,two missed golden moments, yet one captured the hearts and minds of millions of voters. Judge Denies obama’s motion to dismiss today, link below. Constitution lives again!!!
Last night in the debate two of the candidates missed a couple of golden opportunities. Rick Santorum (the mad hatter) keeps going after Ron regarding his (Ricks) and the Republican parties,misrepresentation of Ron Pauls foreign policy. Ron should have looked over at Santorum and simply said, “There you go again” . That would have ended the debate on Ron Pauls foreign policy positions going forward. It would have been Paul’s ,Reagan’esk moment. And the one thing you can be sure of is, Ron Paul is going forward.
Mitt missed a moment last night that would have set the debate on fire. The television screens would have gone to test modes. He could have rallied millions of voters to his camp . The media all week and even up in New Hampshire and Iowa has been hammering Mitt to produce his tax records. Here’s what Mitt should have said last night. Mitt should have simply said this” Ok I’ll make you all a deal, Obama has been calling for me to produce my tax records. I’ll do that as soon as he produces his long form birth certificate, his Certified school/university registration records, certified immigration/naturalization records, certified passport records, certified Social Security card applications for each of the aliases and other legal names used by Barack Obama, adoption documents by step-father Lolo Soetoro, . Mitt should have stepped up and clearly stated that as soon as he has proof that the Democrat party has nominated a Constitutionally eligible candidate, I then will produce my tax records . (We’re going to see to it that the Romney camp gets this blog posting today).
Newt once again had an awesome night. Taking on John King,CNN and ABC, was just what the audience obviously wanted. I hope Frank Luntz had his meters running somewhere. I’ll bet the line went off the charts for Newt. The main stream media including fox,cnn,msnbc are killing their own ratings with their obvious bias. Americans should remember a vital statistic. Fifty five ,plus percent of marriages end in divorce, for one reason or another. Which brings up a point. This governments,federal,state,county,cities, tax and monetary policy plays a major role in the failures of millions of marriages,enough said. The self-described Social Conservative candidate Rick Santorum never talks about that , Why? Have you ever wondered why the obama camp spends so much time hammering away at Mitt Romney. Its simple,, Obama’s nightmare is having to debate Newt Gingrich. Id spend some bucks to see that one.
At the end of the day, Americans must ask themselves this question. What is the job of the office of the Presidency. He has one mandate to provide for the Security of the United States and to manage the foreign policy of the United States. The only candidate that truly understands that is Ron Paul. Ron Pauls understanding of the responsibilities of the President are clear as the nose on your face. Again he is to provide for the National Security of the United States, get the government out-of-the-way of a domestic economic recovery, let the markets work, let Americans do what they’ve always done, put on their boots and go to work. Create a sound monetary policy, fire Bernanke and Geitner, shut down over bloated agencies, build the pipe line, open up off shore drilling, in short do just the opposite of everything this government has been doing for the last 40 years. Including the subsidizing of foreign countries by expanding the American empire around the globe.
Countries around the Globe would be better off if they would tell America to ” Get Out Of Our Country”. Go home and mind your own business. We can handle our own affairs, you’ve got your own problems!!
The only candidate that has had a steady consistent message for the last two generations is Ron Paul. By the end of this month our debt will exceed our GDP thanks to bush and obama. If we don’t turn this ship around now, we will have the same fate that those folks on Carnival saw last week. The problem however is , there will be no rescue boats there to help us. Greece in short order will be going back to the Drachma , they have no other choice. The European Union is falling apart due to debt caused by liberal social policies and poor monetary policies, such as investing in a fraudulent American federal government housing program , as many predicted it would. China has its own problems and is holding, trillions of dollars of our debt. Whats worse is any thing that would possibly be good for the American Economy, Obama will throw it in the dumpster. Making his promise of” Fundamentally Transforming America ” a reality.

Ron Paul Wins 2011 Values Voter Straw Poll
First Posted: 10/8/11 03:51 PM ET Updated: 10/8/11 05:22 PM ET
Herman Cain finished in second place with 23 percent, while Rick Santorum took third at 16 percent.
Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann finished in a dead-even tie for fourth at eight percent. The rest of the field saw Mitt Romney net four percent, Newt Gingrich at three percent and Jon Huntsman in dead last with zero percent.
After the vote, Slate’s David Weigel spoke with Family Research President Council president Tony Perkins, who credited a key strength of Paul’s presidential run:
“Do the math,” said Perkins. “Ron Paul and his campaign are very well organized.”
Paul’s campaign could prove to be a major 2012 GOP spoiler. The AP noted on Monday how Paul’s libertarian lean has energized some conservatives. But when asked about the term ‘spoiler’, Paul had this to say:
“I have no idea what exactly spoiler means,” Paul said recently while in New Hampshire. “If you’re a participant and you have an influence and you win or come close and you influence the debate, I think that’s pretty important. So I don’t put a negative term on that as spoiling anything. Spoiling their fun? Maybe they need a little spoiling.”
His support also showed during his speech itself. The Atlantic’s Molly Ball captured how well Paul’s rhetoric was received, describing his turn at the microphone as ‘rambling, didactic, full of obscure references — and rapturously received by his fans’, backed by segments such as this one.
“As long as we allow the federal government to grow…things will get worse,” he said. “But the good news is, a whole generation of Americans are rising up and saying, ‘We were on track at one time. Let’s get back on track.’ Let’s restore our liberty, prosperity and peace!”
MSNBC’s First Read adds that another segment of this particular straw poll revealed voters’ preferences for the GOP vice-presidential nominee. Bachmann finished in the top slot in that area, followed by Cain, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, and Santorum.

The Iowa Republican Straw Poll is happening today on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames. The 32-year old event is also a fundraiser for the Iowa Republican Party.
The straw poll traditionally takes place in August in years without an incumbent Republican president running for re-election. Iowa residents over the age of 18 years old can vote for one of the nine Republican candidates on the straw poll ballot.
Six of the candidates will speak at the event including Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Thaddeus McCotter, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, and Rick Santorum. Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman and Mitt Romney will also appear on the ballot but aren’t expected to make remarks.
Also today, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) is in South Carolina to speak at the RedState conservative blogger convention in Charleston. Gov. Perry is widely expected to declare his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination. Also participating in the event are South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Sen. Jim DeMint.
C‑SPAN.org and the C‑SPAN networks continue to follow the candidates and campaigns as we enter the 2012 election season. You can join in the conversation on C‑SPAN’s Campaign 2012 Facebook page. Or follow us on twitter.
