Gregg Jackson will not vote for Romney

and here is why:

As Governor, Willard “Mitt” Romney:

• Unilaterally, illegally & unconstitutionally instituted same-sex “marriage” falsely claiming the “court ordered him to.” Proof here and here

• Signed the forerunner to Obamacare (Romneycare) into law which includes $50 tax-subsidized elective surgical abortions including late-term abortions into law (3 years AFTER his fake “pro-life conversion.”) Proof here

• Boosted funding for homosexual “education” starting in kindergarten. Proof here

• Opposes a ban on homosexual scoutmasters. Proof here

• Promised the homosexual Republican “Log Cabin Republicans” he wouldn’t oppose “gay marriage” in return for their endorsement. Proof here

• Instituted a quasi-socialist healthcare plan endorsed by Hillary Clinton, Teddy Kennedy and Planned Parenthood that destroyed the Massachusetts’ economy. Proof here and here.

• Forced Catholic Charities, the nation’s #1 adoption and foster care service to place children with same sex couples even though he was under no legal obligation to do so as even former Governor Michael Dukakis has acknowledged.

• Passed over Republican lawyers for three quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he faced and nominated 2 open homosexuals. Proof here

• Criticized Joint Chief’s of Staff, Peter Pace for saying that homosexual acts were “immoral.” Proof here

• Supports passage at the state level of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act which would force churches and other religious organizations to hire homosexuals and transvestites or face criminal fines and prosecution. Proof here

Win in Iowa

Brrent Budowski writes on the Hill that Ron Paul can win Iowa:

Ron Paul can win Iowa because his supporters are very highly motivated and his campaign is very highly organized. He will outperform his rising poll numbers. 

Let Israel Mind Their Own Business

This was the crux of Ron Paul’s response in last night’s foreign policy debate. To me, one of the strangest scenes was to hear Paul Wolfowitz ask a question and then Ron Paul quote Wolfowitz in response to another question in foreign policy. This may not mean much, but since I have been following Paul’s speeches and books for years, Paul has often quoted Wolfowitz in support of his position that terrorists act in response to the U.S. government’s invading Islamic holy sites.

Wolf Blitzer asked the candidates if they would support Israel if Israel decided to bomb Iran. All of the candidates gave some variation of a “yes” answer, while Paul clearly demonstrated his unique perspective in foreign policy questions. Israel is quite capable of protecting themselves. The reality, as Dr. Paul affirmed, is that U.S. involvement in Israel’s foreign affairs leaves them more vulnerable.

The Iowa and New Hampshire Front Runner

There are now multiple polls that show Ron Paul has gained support and has a legitimate chance to come in first or second in Iowa and New Hampshire. I would now call Ron Paul one of three front-runners in both Iowa and New Hampshire alongside Mitt Romney and a third candidate, currently Newt Gingrich. If Ron Paul wins Iowa, which he might, all bets are off. Also, most analysts miss the fact that many states have open systems where independents, and in some cases Democrats, can vote for a Republican nominee. This could give a further boost to Paul.

There is Another Texan in the Race

For weeks, it was the other Texan who was shaking things up as a front-runner in the Republican presidential race. Now, while Gov. Rick Perry struggles to reverse his plunge in the polls, Rep. Ron Paul of Lake Jackson is the Texan on the march after pushing his way into the top tier of candidates for the Jan. 3 Iowa caucuses.

Ron Paul Third in New Hampshire

Texas Congressman Ron Paul, a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, is in 3rd in the latest New Hampshire Journal poll of New Hampshire Republican primary voters with 16 percent of the votes. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who always polls well in New Hampshire, grabbed a first place finish with 29 percent of the votes. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich gave Romney a run for his money with 27 percent of the votes. With a 2 point spread in the latest NH Journal poll, a first place finish in the New Hampshire primary may not be a given for Romney’s campaign.

Iowa: Ron Paul

A recent Bloomberg News poll showed him in close second place in Iowa, behind Herman Cain and narrowly ahead of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

The same poll showed more Iowa caucus-goers had been contacted by the Paul campaign than any of the other six GOP campaigns actively competing for the Jan. 3 caucuses.

Two weeks earlier, The Des Moines Register’s poll showed Paul in solid third place, behind Cain and Romney.

And Paul seems to have been able to sustain his support after finishing a close second in the Iowa GOP’s August straw poll, while straw poll winner Michele Bachmann, a Minnesota representative, has dipped in Iowa polls since. {Read Entire Story}

Ron Paul Front-Runner

This is Big! Paul is second in a dead heat race in Iowa. Iowa is crucial to the Paul campaign. This latest poll is a much needed boost to Ron Paul who has been continuously avoided by the mainstream media.

Will the Real Ron Paul Please Stand?

The News Media is going insane over Rick Perry’s brain-freeze last night (take a listen). Perry attempting to prove a point to Ron Paul that he is equally as tough on cutting failed to mention the third department he would cut. As Drudge Report noted, it was 53 seconds of pure agony and embarrassment. But what the media has failed to mention is that Rick Perry is actually talking about cutting departments, not tinkering with them. Perry’s tough cuts talk was clouded by his lack of memory (let’s face it, it happens to all of us, but we are not on the national scene). All the candidates are in some sense trying to speak Paulian without giving him credit (though it should be noted Gingrich spoke favorably of Paul concerning the Federal Reserve). Everyone tries to be Ron Paul because they realize that his ideas have finally become ripened for consumption. Everyone tries to be Ron Paul, but there is only one; only one who is consistent–not you Mitt Romney–and faithful to his principles.

Iran and Nuclear Weapons

The hype about Iran’s nuclear weapons is getting explosive! Fox News Sunday (Christ Wallace)  led by their fearless neo-conservative commentator, Bill Kristol, says that Israel’s president is actually preparing to take down Iran’s facilities. All of this stems from the much anticipated report by the IAEA report. But contrary to popular assertions, Flynn Leverret summarizes well the report when he writes:

…Even if every single point in the IAEA’s report were absolutely, 100 percent true, it would mean that Iran is working systematically to master the skills it would need to fabricate nuclear weapons at some hypothetical point down the road, should it ever decide to do so.

The march to war would most likely put all the pressure on the U.S. to act on behalf of Israel, which would mean an additional decade of war in the Middle East. We cannot afford this fear talk all over again. –UB
