Having seen what Fred can do rhetorically back in April, 2007, having investigated his positions as his candidacy “unfolded” in the “testing the waters” period, I expected three things to happen:
- Fred would emerge as the leading conservative as he opened the gates of his thinking in his inimitable fashion, that is, incisive analysis and good-natured wit. This was the first major candidate that would run against government since Ronald Reagan. He would unite the right.
- Fred would have to fight like a tiger to win the nomination over the dead bodies of the disingenuous left-leaning RNC pragmatists that have tightened their grip on the reins of the Republican Party bringing us gifts like Comprehensive Amnesty and the 2006 election results, but he would, in the end, prevail. I thought this because I could see they were dividing up the RINO vote between a. Senator McAmnesty, b, a New York mayor and, c, a Massachusetts governor, both of whom were for gay rights.
- Fred would win a landslide victory over Hillary Clinton in the general election by drawing a bigger contrast between left and right than had been done since 1980, once again, without any stridency.
In the offing would be the grassroots revolution for which the restoration of American Freedom still waits. Check out Fred’s positions HERE.
But I did not realize that the National Right to Life Committee had, for about 15 years, been inadvertently preparing to destroy Mr. Thompson. They just about have. But I digress…
Not everyone, here, at the Reagan Wing, shared my optimistic views on Thompson.
Pro-Lifers, like Michelle, were highly skeptical of Thompson’s early nineties laissez-faire position on first trimester killing, despite his “100% Pro-Life” voting record. The fact is, for the entire time he was in Congress, he never had to vote on a measure to stop abortion, but only to regulate its perimeter. (More on this in part Two.) [But I was confident in the inevitability of the process that brings people to pro-life conclusions if they are both rational and of good intentions. It happened to me and many political types I’ve known on the conservative side. I expected Fred to unveil positions to match his labeling.]
Constitutionalists, Like Marilyn Taylor, believed Fred was an “Internationalist” because of his vote for NAFTA, CAFTA and membership in the CFR, and feared he would continue to erode American Sovereignty. [But Fred had voted for trade sanctions, to continue the Castro embargo, and against IMF grant money. I was concerned, but optomistic.]
Now Fred, on the strength of his South Carolina debate, appears, once again, to be on the threshold of a campaign breakthrough, but with, seemingly, much higher stakes because our other possibilities have seriously diminished. Most of the Conservative candidates need the kind of miracle American politics has never seen: Tancredo has dropped out, Duncan Hunter has failed to find traction, and has been cut completely off by the media at the most crucial time. You can’t win if you can’t get your message out. Alan Keyes was never serious about building a team or a campaign. It was just “Have mouth, will travel,” and he won’t break 1%.
Right now the media frontrunners and favorites are all RINOs:
Giuliani and Romney have never been anything else but liberals. They still are.
McCain is a proven turncoat on at least two nation-destroying issues.
Huckabee is, at once, the most religious and least ethical man in the race, a fiscal and foreign policy Democrat. He is the Jimmy Swaggart of the GOP.
None of these men deserve a Senate nomination, much less the Presidency.
Two Constitutionalists with surprising similarities and a glaring difference.
One wants to retract our forces from around the World and build bridges with the Caliphate. The other wants to cap foreign aid and defeat the Caliphate. These differences are irreconcilable and only one is the Republican majority view.
Both are soft spoken men, but straightforward and deadly serious.
Both are too conservative to have any friends among the media conglomerates.
Neither one will pander to groups or to the media.
Both need the Revolution that the GOP needs, that America needs.
Ron, Paul and Fred.
What does the National Right to Life Committee have to do with all this?
