Let's turn lemons into lemonade. This can be our opportunity to demand a people's candidate from the GOP in 2016. Of course fiscal conservativism & military readiness are important. But candidates who waffle on social issues will always get the other 2 wrong if you wait long enough. And you libertarians have been lied to by gay marriage advocates who say "but don't you want government not to tell you what to do?" Hello!!! Government who starts issuing marriage licenses to a new class of people is telling you what to do!! It also means an expansion of government, more taxes to support that, and more frivolous lawsuits (divorces that should be annulments for marriages that technically can never be consummated) clogging our courts. Libertarians have far more in common with social conservatives than with liberals. Please, let's work together. We have gone along with the GOP elites who have asked us to hold our nose for Romney (which we did with overwhelming evangelical support, 79%, ask Michael Medved) and McCain. They should really pay us back now and let us have a social conservative in 2016. What have they got to lose? The GOP is on a losing streak now doing it their way. I favor Huckabee - back in 07 I saw many Daily Kos'ers say they like him even though they're democrats - but if you want someone else name your candidate. Thank you.
Why would Guy link to a CNN poll (that claims majority support for SSM)? The MSM can only be expected to push the inevitability of any liberal cause. Nothing fair and balanced there. Prop 8 would still win in California. But to throw out DOMA means that America committed suicide today, when the highest (who should be the smartest) judges in the land can't tell the difference between real sex (that propagates the species) and fake homosexual foreplay that gets stuck on 3rd base no matter which way it's tried (that never will make a baby). RIP, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
May God bless & protect Sarah Palin, who had the backbone to call out Rubio's flip flop on amnesty, and any other God-fearing person who puts themselves out there as a true citizen legislator for the rest of us, and takes all the kicking around that the enemies within will dish out. My view on the immigration bill basically is, it's no good until NumbersUSA approves of it. Demand a true conservative from the GOP in 2016. We evangelicals did our duty, supporting Romney to the tune of 79% (this number comes from Michael Medved). We have held our noses long enough, obeying the elites' wishes to support a candidate who we "can agree with 70% of the time" (we were told), only to lose 2 elections now, and the 06 midterms when Bush stayed inside. It is high time for payback by the Roves of the GOP to give us a social conservative. One like Palin, or Huckabee, or Santorum, or Bachmann. If you don't like them, name your choice. But the GOP has nothing to lose by doing it our way for once. If they lose another election running the right kind of candidate (proud right wing nuts, lol), so what? They're on a losing streak already. But give us that candidate and we'll support them not 79% but 90% or higher. This is not because fiscal conservatism and a strong military aren't important. But think about it and you'll realize this: Anybody who won't stand up for social conservatism will waffle on anything. Just look at Rubio, or Paul Ryan.

Dear Anon, I am fond of posting that the GOP owes us a social conservative in 2016, like Michele Bachmann. And I wish to reply to you in hopes of garnering your support, because she voted with RP quite often. I know it bothers Paul supporters that she supported the Patriot Act. But she did vote against NDAA, like he did, and on fiscal matters votes much like he did too.
...introduce...you...to my friend Jesus (oops, sorry).
Well well well. I had the epiphany (on these pages, maybe) some months ago that...It's...Not...Sex (it's foreplay). And Michael Medved agreed with me on the radio today, sort of. He said, more or less, that Kaitlyn Hunt should be let off easy, because to ask for the same sort of statutory rape conviction that a hetero young man preying on an underage girl deserves is, sort of, equating SSM with real marriage. He was challenged by a caller, a smart (well-spoken), young (-sounding) man, who said gay activists are always agitating for equality, let them have it now by throwing the book at Hunt. I would half-agree with Medved. No, the sex is not equal. But go the other direction, and stick Hunt in jail longer for being a predator on her child victim, as a deterrent against those gays (they always say it's a tiny minority anyway) who are child molesters. Cheers, and let me introduce to my friend Jesus.

Thank you Vic, then name your guy (or gal). Somebody who's passionate about moral issues. Remember when liberals wondered "HOW!*? did they do it?" in 2000, and they found out it was "values voters" who Rove correctly identified and attracted? Yet, since then, the GOP hasn't given us anything in return? That's why I say 2016 should be reimbursement time. I don't know who's more rock-solid passionate, and at the same time likable, on the moral issues than Huckabee. He'd do better in that way than Santorum or Bachmann. So, please suggest a good alternative candidate. Thanks.

Thank you Les. I am basing that off of Medved reporting that 79% of evangelicals supported Romney. Which is what the GOP badgered us into (again), and we came through with flying colors (and proved the liberals wrong that we wouldn't support a Mormon), so that is why I say they owe us, by giving us one of our own for a candidate. You're right, total votes for Romney were less than for McCain, but Obama got FAR less than he did in 08 (again, Medved's data on his radio show), something like 2 million fewer GOP votes and 11 million fewer Dem votes. They still had the better turnout anyway.

Sorry, paraphrase is the right word I guess, not quote.
