    Here is a comprehensive list of all the reasons to oppose Newt Gingrich.

    Newt Gingrich is a political chameleon that has inexplicably managed to fool conservatives for 30 years. He is a globalist to the bone and supports every opportunity to erode American sovereignty and the constitution. He disguises his statist positions with an abundance of flip-flopping and pandering as needed. He has a long history of expanding the Federal Government and deficit spending. He is the very definition of an Establishment Insider.

    QUOTES
    "The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument." - Newt Gingrich

    "[O]ur government, at all levels, must be modernized to successfully partner, let alone compete, with the private sector." -- Newt Gingrich, A Contract with the Earth (p.196)

    "The U.S. government operates endowments for the humanities and the arts…Perhaps, it is time we consider a new endowment for conservation and the environment." -- Newt Gingrich, A Contract with the Earth (pp. 115-116)

    "We agree that there is plenty of evidence that global climate change is occurring…While humanity is certainly causing its fair share of the change, scientists are still not able to precisely pinpoint the extent of the change, or the margin of error in their estimates." -- Newt Gingrich, A Contract with the Earth (p. 200)

    "In spite of the demonstrated liberal leanings in academia, we have nothing but respect for the nation’s scientists. They represent America’s best hope to protect the environment. We support a dramatic increase in science and technology research and development because we desperately need to understand global climate change and other environmental phenomena." -- Newt Gingrich, A Contract with the Earth (p. 201)

    "If you import a commercial quantity of illegal drugs, it is because you have made the personal decision that you are prepared to get rich by destroying our children. I have made the decision that I love our children enough that we will kill you if you do this." -- Newt Gingrich (source)

    "What we're being told is that free trade with Mexico would devastate the U.S. economy. With its low wages, Mexico would unleash a flood of cheap imports into our markets. There would be a mass exodus of U.S. factory jobs, as hordes of American companies fled across the border.... All this is scare talk." -- Newt Gingrich, on the House floor 9/22/1993. (source)

    Q: "Will you rally the troops for GATT and the World Trade Organization?"
    A: "Yes. In the first place, the Administration has accepted amendments of Senator Dole and myself giving Congress dramatically more oversight of the WTO, including the right to bring up a vote on withdrawal every five years in perpetuity, so at any point that we think it is out of control or inappropriate, we can simply withdraw." -- Newt Gingrich, 11/11/1994 (source)

    "The American challenge in leading the world is compounded by our Constitution. Under our [constitutional system] - either we're going to have to rethink our Constitution, or we're going to have to rethink our process of decision-making." He went on to profess an oxymoronic belief in "very strong but limited federal government," and pledged, "I am for the United Nations." -- Newt Gingrich, July 1995, speech at the Center for Strategic & International Affairs (source)

    On executing people for drug offenses: "The first time we execute 27 or 30 or 35 people at one time, and they go around Colombia and France and Thailand and Mexico, and they say, 'Hi, would you like to carry some drugs into the U.S.?' the price of carrying drugs will have gone up dramatically." -- Newt Gingrich, 1995 (NY Times)

    "See, when I smoked pot it was illegal, but not immoral. Now, it is illegal AND immoral. The law didn't change, only the morality… That's why you get to go to jail and I don't." -- Newt Gingrich, 8/8/1996, Wall Street Journal (source)

    When asked if he would change or repeal the Patriot Act: "No, I would not change it. I'm not aware of any specific change it needs. And I'd look at strengthening it, because I think the dangers are literally that great." -- Newt Gingrich, 11/22/2011, CNN Debate (source)

    "This is, by the way, one of the great tragedies of the Bush Administration. The more successful they've been at intercepting and stopping bad guys, the less proof there is that we're in danger. And therefore the better they've done at making sure there isn't an attack, the easier it is to say that there was never going to be an attack anyways. And its almost like they should, every once in a while, have allowed an attack to get through, just to remind us. Think about the psychology. Why do we wrap up so many people? Well, because we wiretapped. And again, I'm going to be a little controversial. I would divide the FBI into two agencies. I would have an anti-domestic-crime FBI which was very cautious, very respectful of civil liberties. You are innocent until proven guilty. And I would have a small but VERY aggressive anti-terrorism agency. And I would frankly give them EXTRAORDINARY ability to eavesdrop. And my first advice to civil libertarians is simple: Don't plot with terrorists." -- Newt Gingrich, 4/29/2008 (source)

    "I think we prefer to go to instant check on an immediate basis and try to accelerate implementing instant checks so that you could literally check by thumb print whether there was a convicted felon with dangerous behavior or dangerous mental behavior. Instant check is a much better system than the Brady process." -- Newt Gingrich, June 27, 1997 (source)

    "Wilson's speeches still work. I'm frankly a realpolitik Wilsonian." -- Newt Gingrich (source)

    "There are a lot of things to complain about in the Stimulus package... but there are 2 good things in the Stimulus Package from the standpoint of health. The first is a very serious investment in health information technology, which takes us a significant step down the road towards really having electronic health records for every American. And I applaud President Obama for developing and insisting on that approach. And second, a substantial amount of money for Medicaid..." -- Newt Gingrich, Feb. 2009, (source)

    "If I see somebody who is earning over $50,000 a year, who has made the calculated decision not to buy health insurance, I'm looking at somebody who is absolutely as irresponsible as anybody who has ever been on welfare. Because what they said is, (A) I'm gambling that won't get sick, and (B) I'm gambling that if I do get sick, I can cheat all my neighbors." -- Newt Gingrich, 2005 (source)

    "People like me are what stand between us and Auschwitz." -- Newt Gingrich, 1/16/1994 (source)

    "[T]here’s nothing to restrain a President from doing something dumb, but I trust the people in this room to tell me if that is the case." But then he noted more seriously that, "I’m a Federalist. I look to the Federalist Papers and the Constitution to guide me and restrain government." -- Newt Gingrich (source)

    "In March 1993, I got an assistance program I could support: $1.6 billion in direct aid to help Russia stabilize. Although a public poll said that 75% of the American people were opposed to giving Russia more money, and we were already in a hard fight for the economic plan, I felt we had no choice but to press ahead. American had spent trillions of dollars in defense to win the Cold War; we couldn't risk reversal over less that $2 billion and a bad poll. To the surprise of my staff, the congressional leaders, including the Republicans, agreed with me. At a meeting I convened to push the plan, Senator Joe Biden, the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, strongly endorsed the aid package. Newt Gingrich was passionately in favor of helping Russia, saying it was a 'great defining moment' for American and we had to do the right thing." -- Bill Clinton, 2004 (My Life, p. 506-507).

    "Professor Gingrich hopefully will never be called upon to teach a course in the proper role of our federal government. His rare votes against bloated big government usually have been prompted by the partisan wrangling of the moment, not by any great respect for, or understanding of, the Constitution." -- James Toft of “Tax Reform Immediately” (TRIM)

    The perfect quote for Newt Gingrich:
    "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them." -- Jesus Christ

    This is what I do instead of letting FOX News brainwash me for hours every night.

    Funny how the big voices on the "Right" don't mention any of this stuff when they should be sounding the alarm to conservatives.

    Instead they just say how Newt is such a "genius." LOL.

    So who are you going to pick to defeat Obama? I keep hearing that Obama is going down to defeat this coming November. As the old saying goes - don't count your chickens until the eggs hatch. The current crop of republicans are continually fighting each other for the nomination and keep exposing their vunerable areas to Obama (say as want about him - he and his staff are smart and not stupid) and if we have a third party candidate (Ron Paul) then the election goes to Obama. The economy will improve just enough along with people seeing the current congress as do nothing and being a roadblock to his initatives and will give him a second chance. We can't under estimate him. We will have to hold our noses when we vote in the next election. I would take Gingrich over Obama any day.

The economy will improve just enough along with people seeing the current congress as do nothing and being a roadblock to his initatives and will give him a second chance. We can't under estimate him. We will have to hold our noses when we vote in the next election. I would take Gingrich over Obama any day.
    Why do people keep asserting that there will be a Paul 3rd party candidacy? There's been no evidence whatsoever that he has any plans to run as anything other than a republican. Shoot, in the past he's flat out had to come out and say it. What party's he going to go to? The greens? CP? LP? Sorry, but all those parties already have people vying for their nominations and not all of them have ballot access in all states. If he loses in the gop primary he'll likely just call it a day, finish out his term and retire (something he's already planned to do).

    As for Gingrinch, he'd be a lot worse than pretty much any of the others. Well, maybe not as bad as Perry or Bachmann, but damned near. He'd certainly not make a good president. He's a machine man, through and through and a Gingrinch run would equal an Obama win. He's a candidate without the "right stuff".

    Bring me some proof and I might just believe your ramblings. I mean just ONE article or video or website. Really rambone, you shouldn't post stuff like this unless you are able to back it up with evidence.

    The following ad was paid for by the Elect Ron Paul Campaign - Rambone, national campaign manager.

    Here is a comprehensive list of all the reasons to oppose Newt Gingrich.

    Newt Gingrich is a political chameleon that has inexplicably managed to fool conservatives for 30 years. He is a globalist to the bone and supports every opportunity to erode American sovereignty and the constitution. He disguises his statist positions with an abundance of flip-flopping and pandering as needed. He has a long history of expanding the Federal Government and deficit spending. He is the very definition of an Establishment Insider.

    QUOTES
    "The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument." - Newt Gingrich

    "[O]ur government, at all levels, must be modernized to successfully partner, let alone compete, with the private sector." -- Newt Gingrich, A Contract with the Earth (p.196)

    "The U.S. government operates endowments for the humanities and the arts…Perhaps, it is time we consider a new endowment for conservation and the environment." -- Newt Gingrich, A Contract with the Earth (pp. 115-116)

    "We agree that there is plenty of evidence that global climate change is occurring…While humanity is certainly causing its fair share of the change, scientists are still not able to precisely pinpoint the extent of the change, or the margin of error in their estimates." -- Newt Gingrich, A Contract with the Earth (p. 200)

    "In spite of the demonstrated liberal leanings in academia, we have nothing but respect for the nation’s scientists. They represent America’s best hope to protect the environment. We support a dramatic increase in science and technology research and development because we desperately need to understand global climate change and other environmental phenomena." -- Newt Gingrich, A Contract with the Earth (p. 201)

    "If you import a commercial quantity of illegal drugs, it is because you have made the personal decision that you are prepared to get rich by destroying our children. I have made the decision that I love our children enough that we will kill you if you do this." -- Newt Gingrich (source)

    "What we're being told is that free trade with Mexico would devastate the U.S. economy. With its low wages, Mexico would unleash a flood of cheap imports into our markets. There would be a mass exodus of U.S. factory jobs, as hordes of American companies fled across the border.... All this is scare talk." -- Newt Gingrich, on the House floor 9/22/1993. (source)

    Q: "Will you rally the troops for GATT and the World Trade Organization?"
    A: "Yes. In the first place, the Administration has accepted amendments of Senator Dole and myself giving Congress dramatically more oversight of the WTO, including the right to bring up a vote on withdrawal every five years in perpetuity, so at any point that we think it is out of control or inappropriate, we can simply withdraw." -- Newt Gingrich, 11/11/1994 (source)

    "The American challenge in leading the world is compounded by our Constitution. Under our [constitutional system] - either we're going to have to rethink our Constitution, or we're going to have to rethink our process of decision-making." He went on to profess an oxymoronic belief in "very strong but limited federal government," and pledged, "I am for the United Nations." -- Newt Gingrich, July 1995, speech at the Center for Strategic & International Affairs (source)


    "Professor Gingrich hopefully will never be called upon to teach a course in the proper role of our federal government. His rare votes against bloated big government usually have been prompted by the partisan wrangling of the moment, not by any great respect for, or understanding of, the Constitution." -- James Toft of “Tax Reform Immediately” (TRIM)

    Any GOP candidate as POTUS is like a scratch on your finger. Obama winning is like being hit in the back of the head with a baseball bat. Either situation is unpleasant, its just a matter of degree.

    I have no interest in going through that point by point. First, Gingrich isn't a perfect candidate. I disagree with him on many things.

    So much in that post was crap. This is the kind of thing that destroys your credibility, Rambone.

    Just to pick on one thing - you call him a draft dodger because he got a student deferment. That's not draft dodging. You may think there's something wrong with it - I don't and I served in the Army for 11 years - which is your opinion. A deferment doesn't make him a draft dodger. Clinton's issue was a letter he wrote to avoid the draft that talked about his lack of respect for the military. He wasn't a draft dodger, either.

    That's just one of dozens of misleading things you've posted above. You make it hard to defend you, something I've done many times by PM to some of my fellows here.

    I strongly advise you to learn to stick to the exact truth as you know it, without flavoring or misleading. You'll go farther to advance your cause.

    If you truly can't see a difference between Gingrich and Obama, then there is nothing else I can tell you about why libertarians are in the margins and always will be. You have placed yourself in a spot where you don't matter. Even if the revolution were to come, you'd help make it happen and then you'd go right back to the margins.

    You're mad at reality because it isn't how you want it to be. Go write a Sci Fi novel and create your own fantasy world. It doesn't exist here.

    "The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument." - Newt Gingrich

    Seems like the Ron Paul Support Group made this argument when it was revealed that Ron Paul takes money from White Supremacists.

    I don't have a problem with draft dodging or deferments.

    I do have a problem with voting to send other people's kids to war when you weren't willing to go yourself.
