YouTube – Romney To Give Speech About Mormon Religion

In this YouTube Video Mitt Romney refuses to answer how Mormonism differs from Christianity.

Before you chime in and say “it doesn’t.”  My simple reply to that is “then why are they knocking on my door?”

Since Gov Romney won’t answer, just click here for an excellent list.

Coulter: Fred Sawyer and Huckabee Finn

Weed through the stinging barbs and check out some of the facts from Ann Coulter’s piece on Fred Thompson and Mike Huckabee:

On illegal immigration, Huckabee makes George Bush sound like Tom Tancredo. He has compared illegal aliens to slaves brought here in chains from Africa, saying, “I think frankly the Lord is giving us a second chance to do better than we did before.”

Toward that end, when an Arkansas legislator introduced a bill that would prevent illegal aliens from voting and receiving state benefits, Huckabee denounced the bill, saying it would rile up “those who are racist and bigots.”

He also made the insane point that companies like Toyota would not invest in Arkansas if the state didn’t allow non-citizens to vote because it would “send the message that, essentially, ‘If you don’t look like us, talk like us and speak like us, we don’t want you.'”

Will you support the Nominee of the Party? had these excellent comments:

And I agree, if Rudy Giuliani is the nominee — we will stay home or perhaps even support a third party candidate.

I was talking this over with a friend who told me that I may as well vote for Hillary. In fact both Hannity and Rush have been saying the same thing on their radio shows, they have been saying that not supporting the nominee is the same as a vote for Hillary.

Well, this is what I had to say to my friend. Nominating Giuliani is the same as electing Hillary.

True dat.

You Decide 2008

One of my favorite blogs, What in Tarnation, sent me to another web poll. Seems all the questions were written by a liberal. But anyway. Here are my results and some of my comments.

Cox 32 (who???) 🙂
Tancredo 32 (Still disagree with him on a couple things. Specifically US Foreign Policy)
Paul 25 (Right on Foreign Policy, wrong on drugs)
Romney 25 (Mormon – yes, it matters to me. Plus, he’s yet to prove himself on some of his newly found conservative positions)
Hunter 19 (wonder why he’s down here?)
Huckabee 17 (really wonder why he’s down here — he’s becoming “one to watch” (update: or not))
Brownback 17
Thompson 8
McCain -3 (minus 3!! ha)
Richardson -16
Giuliani -18 (again, Giuliani scores below a Democrat)
Biden -19
Edwards -24
Dodd -25
Gravel -26
Obama -29
Clinton -30 (Communist)
Kucinich -32 (Communist)

Does Ron Paul Still Want to Legalize Drugs?

I love some of the things Ron Paul is saying. He’s right on Foreign Policy and very right on the Constitution. However, while running as a Libertarian for President he said and wrote some very strong statements concerning the use of Drugs in America. And for some reason, I haven’t seen any of this come up in the debates. Perhaps he’s changed his position.

From Ron Paul:

* Legalize industrial hemp. (Jan 2007)
* Voted NO on military border patrols to battle drugs & terrorism. (Sep 2001)
* Voted NO on subjecting federal employees to random drug tests. (Sep 1998)
* War on Drugs has abused Bill of Rights . (Dec 2000)
* Legalize medical marijuana. (Jul 2001)
* Rated A by VOTE-HEMP, indicating a pro-hemp voting record. (Dec 2003

Check out these videos of Ron Paul on the Morton Downey, Jr. Show (how did that show ever make it on the air?)

Ron Paul wrote in 1987:

The Reagans, emulating Stalin, have even praised the chilling example of a child informing on his parents and urged others to follow his example. The 1980’s war on drugs has increased the U.S. prison population by 60%, while street crime has zoomed. Seventy percent of the people arrested for serious crimes are drug users. And all the evidence shows that they commit these crimes to support a habit made extremely expensive by government prohibition. Urban street crime, which terrorizes millions of Americans, is largely the creation of the U.S. drug laws. That alone is reason enough for legalization.

Just some food for thought.
