Newt Loves the First Coast Tea Party

Newt was in town for a tea party event with the First Coast Tea Party. He went on Greta that evening and commented about us. We appreciate him thanking us for the opportunity to get his message out. We'll do the same for any of the candidates.

Thanks for the link to the debate at the Family Forum.  Very telling about the different candidates views on states rights, liberty, and federal jurisdiction about different things.  I think Newt especially showed me that he is a big government guy.  Everything he talks about is a federal government solution to things.  All I heard from most of them is more federal government. 


Even though on a moral level and in my personal life I completely agree with them on abortion, marriage, and the other value issues that were spoken about I don't want the federal government dictating morals.  I know from past post that I'm in the minority on this issue but I don't see how saying some things that should be left to people to decide should be left to federal mandates but other things should not.  When we do that we leave the door open for the other side to do it when they have power.  Liberty and personal responsibility should be held higher then one particular groups views on morality.  You can't force people into moral choices at best you can drive people underground in their beliefs of those things but it doesn't stop people from believing them.  You make real changes to morals threw love and education (which is how Jesus told us to do it) not thru federal laws.

What i find interesting is that you have a certain factor trying to nudge people away from certain candidates to ones they want to represent the GOP conservatives.

What is interesting is that ALL they post and direct people to, actually have certain finger prints leading the actual thinking people to the nudgers, to the disrupters of truth and facts. 

If you can not figure that one out yet, then you truly are lost and need to confide with someone you have confidence with people, friends etc., who has developed 'gut feelings' and 'instincts' about life period.

It is plain as the writing on the wall, what truly is going on...

Always spread the truth... the facts...

We the people are going to pick the GOP candidate in 2012, not the press/media or progressives...

And KeEP the FAiTH

I think that the field of candidates is full of good choices. However, most of them do not have any chance of getting the nomination and time is running short, especially with the primaries being moved up as early as they have been. The candidates on the bottom really need to drop out before the first vote is cast or they will be splitting the conservative vote and handing Romney the nomination. Huntsman, Santorum, and Bachman all need to go, Perry and Ron Paul probably do too. It really looks like it is a three man race right now according to all of the polls. And I would bet that if it was down to just the top three or four right now that Romney would be at the bottom. Just like in the straw poll taken at "Stand Up For America" friday night. Gingrich came in 1st place, Cain came in 2nd and Romney came in a very distant 3rd.

Florida is a winner take all state, which means if Mitt gets the most votes, he's the winner.  There will be no run off like we have had in the past.   It is sad but true when we have more than one conservation running we split our votes and the Liberal always wins.   The big boys know this and thats why all there money is on Mitt.  Don't get me wrong, if it is Mitt, I will work for him because I am for anyone except Obama!!  I just wish we could have all gotten behind the one conservation.   As it stands if "we the people" don't pick one and vote as a group.  Mitt will get it.  Think about it!!  I am still backing Herman Cain because I know enough about the Libs to know the two women that said the awful things about Herman are what they always do.  Not one word is true, but they don't care because they don't live by the standard we all live by.

You are right Douglas. I checked and the Washington Post denies publishing this article. Regardless, it is so true we should pass it on.

Comment by Douglas Newberry on November 20, 2011 at 11:47am

That is a great article about Obama Armando...

However... the Washington Post would NEVER and in fact did NOT publish this piece.

As far as Obama goes, everyone is getting tired of him and his mediocrity. Read the following article: It's short and to the point.

Comment by Patricia M. McBride on November 20, 2011 at 8:21am

Jack, you are right, but certainly, by now, we should all be aware that the media wants to choose the guy and is nudging through their reporting.  It is going to be difficult at best picking the right person, because we have all this stuff going on on the periphery and presented by the media and friends of Obama (who would also like to choose who O will run against so he will look good and have lots of mud to sling since he has nothing else).  We must be on guard for flat out lies and stretching of the truth.  Not an easy thing to do.  We will also have to decide what's important and what isn't important when it comes to a candidate....................we do not have an easy task at hand!

I watched it as well. It was one of the best debates yet. Interesting high powered moral issue questions. We saw a lot about who the candidates are on a moral level. Well worth the time to watch.

I was a little surprised to see so many of them in tears. Very touching and informative on the true character of the candidates.

I watched the Thanksgiving Family Forum in Iowa tonight.

I thought it was great, still have reservations about Newt, will try to contact him and pray i get straight, truthful answers from him. 

I am so fed up with PC~BS lies, corruption, waste and fraud.

It is almost three hours long but very revealing on GOP candidates in my opinion. Unfortunately Huntsman and Romney did not attend... their lost:


We must very carefully vet the GOP candidates for 2012.


And only search for the truth... the facts...
