Let's hope this is one more seat the GOP gets back next year.
We need to change almost all of them but really need 30 Demo seats changed over.

keep dreaming guys. the pendulum is swinging back to the blue sides for a few years.

until you start beating that "gay rights, abortion, & janet jacksons breast" drum again, i fear it is going to stay blue until this war is over.

republicans ONLY win when they use those wedge issues and "rally the base". and for wahtever reason, it looks like this political year, they are not yet beating those drums to get the christian voting block in line. big mistake for them.

they can not run on fiscal discipline any more. they better start courting those "values voters" and making those promises they can't keep.

I can say the same to you.
Keep dreaming.
Time will tell.
The elitists just don't get it.
Thank god they don't.
We'll see in about 14 months.

Lets put a little wager on it... I will donate $100 to the Republican National Committee if they are able to keep the white house and regain both the house and senate in 2008. And if the dem's stay in both houses of congress and reclaim the white house... then you will donate $100 to the DNC.???? What do you say???

Or we can say to hell with the RNC and DNC and do it as: Your donation will be to the ACLU, and mine will be to the NRA ?

Again, I think, SO FAR, red staters havent started beating those 3 war drums yet. Once they do that, you will win. We all know values voters like getting played like a fiddle every 4 yrs even though NOTHING of substance has ever been delivered. They just cant pass up someone telling them "vote for me and I will get rid of fags and abortion".

Maybe they should support Mahmoud Ahmadinejad since he promises his country 1) doesnt have any homosexuals, 2) no abortion, and 3) they will NEVER have to see the breast of janet jackson or any woman for that matter.

You have to admit... he does sound like the republican candidate that values voters have been prayer for.(In all honesty... his views on these issues is in fact a red staters DREAM COME TRUE.)

Interesting, but no thanx. If I make a bet, and lose, I'll follow through with it.
But I'm not going to give out my personal information on a public forum.
How about when it happens, I just post back here.
If a Democrat, ANY democrat gets president, I'll post that that you are a true GOD of a democrat, and if any GOP, you post back that I am a true GOD of an Independent.
Best I can do.
NOWAY would I donate to the ACLU. I'd give my up first born grand child before I do that.
article
Very funny about the mad man, but he's a lefty Liberal candidate. They are the ones that gave him credibility.
Left Wing College professors and single mom families have ruined this country.
No fathers, no masculine influence.
No masculinity means men and women that think we don't need a military because the mad man mentioned above isn't really wanting to kill us.
And, if we ever get threatened, Liberal influenced men and women will just roll over and offer their buttocks like a Baboon.
Exactly the kind of society that American Patriots for over 200 years have died to prevent.
Thank God I'm an old man because I would hate to see the America that the Liberals will create.
But seriously, I'm not worried.
It's not going to happen.

I will agree to your terms and will make that post on election day if I loose.

Former military here so I do have country pride. I just see it a little different than you.

I see it as I served, and people died so that people COULD be exposed to free seppech from radicals.(Even ones we do not agree with.) What makes this country great is we allow him to speak and HE WOULD NEVER ALLOW THE SAME IN HIS COUNTRY. While I in no way agree with his twisted conservative ideas, I am very proud that the eniter world will see.. "hey, the US does care so much about free speech that they let this nut get up there and sout off hate filled rants."

I hate to tell you my friend, he is no lefty. When we DEMANDED that the middle east have elections or else... he was fairly elected. While our right wing in control at the time were confident that "given the opportunity to vote, people will make the right decision on freedom"... instead.. what happened? The right winged hard line extreme won in Iran, and Hamas militants won the "free election" we demanded in palastine.

Trust me though.. our nut friend in the middle east is the islamic equal to a fundamentalist republican. he in no way resembles anyone from a blue state.

In a Red State, we'd just shoot him. LOL

I am also former Military. 9 years with two tours in Vietnam.
Easter Offensive and the pull out during the Fall of Saigon.
I also am in my 26th year of Federal Law Enforcement.
We definitely see things different.
I believe in the Rule of Law, and THAT"S why I left parts of me in An Loc to help fertilize the South Vietnam landscape.
When Five Democrat Congressmen and Presidential Candidates can stand on a stage on National TV and ENCOURAGE violating federal law, I'm sorry I ever thought this country was worth fighting for.
For about 30 seconds.
Now I know that we CANNOT allow those traitors to their oath of office to be President.
In 26 years of working for the President, I have never seen a Law Maker publicly advocate breaking the same laws they made.
I will tell you this, IF any of the Democrat candidates get elected, I'll retire because I can't support them.
And I love my job.
I can retire next March, anyway.
Anyway, I'll keep this thread bookmarked and will check it next November, either way.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
