Whereas, Marco Rubio has disappointed his entire conservative voter base with his troubling push of amnesty for illegal aliens in recent immigration reform legislation.
Whereas, Rubio has misled the public about the bill's costly and explosive contents, as he has not even read the bill and won't agree to share it with the public.
Whereas, Rubio has lost my support by endorsing a "free pass" for illegal immigrants -- a policy that is fiscally, culturally, and lawfully irresponsible. Senator, your encouragement of illegal amnesty is against our values, and is evidence that you mislead constituents to believe you'd vote against the very legislation you're selling today if you were to be elected.
It's relevant to note that the American people see a constant stream of irresponsible and corrupt political leadership in Congress.
Congress are so incompetent that they cannot even pass a budget.
Tom Corbett, cut education funding. We now have no field trips in school.
He cares more about Gambling than he does about the heroin in our streets. He was told what Sandusky did to Aaron Fisher, while attorney general, and did not do a blessed thing.
He's not a governor, he is a crooked Republican.
This film provides incredibly important insight into the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the political philosophy from which it sprang, and its inevitable results.
Due to the recent events involving Mitt Romney's remarks about Obama supporters and the Republican parties unfair treatment of Ron Paul supporters, we have no confidence in Mitt Romney's chances of winning the 2012 Presidential election.
We feel that these events reflect poorly on Mitt Romney,and any further involvement would only hurt Gary Johnson's chances of victory.
We the people of the United States of America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, are here together as one voice.
We stand together as Republicans, Democrats, Conservatives, Liberals, Libertarians, and Freedom Fighters. We come together from all different beliefs, races, and sexes but we all believe in America. We stand together as friends, we stand together as family, and we stand together as a country.
We ask that you not let the voice of the American people die, and that you restore the belief in our people, so that our great nation may inspire the world all over again. We work as firemen, nurses, cab drivers, teachers, cops, cooks, and customer services representatives. We work at schools, restaurants, and hospitals. We work for the city, for the state, and for the country.
It is our understanding that Republican Presidential candidate Congressman Ron Paul has achieved a plurality of delegates in a minimum of five states. We are asking as one voice that you make our republican convention fair by giving Dr. Ron Paul a speaking slot at the convention. The world has taken notice of this election.
Let us not become a joke to them, but rather an example of the integrity of our great nation. Let the convention showcase the two great leaders from our republican side, that one may emerge to contest Barack Obama. Let us showcase to the world, on the greatest of stages, what a republic looks like.
America urgently needs a patriot like Rep. Allen West to liberate our Republic from the tyranny of Obama's corrupt socialist agenda.
BUT IF WE CAN'T HAVE ALLEN WEST FOR PRESIDENT, we must draft him for Vice President. He is the one candidate who can take on and defeat Obama's ruthless racism, complete corruption, and corrosive class warfare.
Rep. Allen West is Obama's worst nightmare, because he's one of America's great patriots.
In the last four years, Barack Obama has attempted the equivalent of 'constitutional murder' against our Republic. Rep. Allen West will fully prosecute Obama's High Crimes.
As Romney's VP selection, he'll beat Obama like a dumb drum.
And after Obama's defeat, Vice President Allen West will lead our liberated Republic to restoration, healing and to full recovery.
Britain is now in a Double-Dip recession. Now we have a four day weekend and many other bank holidays due to the royal family. This cannot be helping local businesses, and the economy will get worse.
If we ditch the monarchy perhaps we can focus our efforts on better things to boost the economy, for example we could sell the castles and royal homes as tourist attractions, or they could be used to shelter those who don't have homes in Britain at the moment, the royal family can get proper jobs to help or get the normal retirement money like everyone else.
In the 21st century we should not have "Royal" people, everyone is equal, most other monarchy's are now gone and they're probably doing a lot better than we are.
While other states’ primaries and caucuses are open to any GOP candidate, Virginia has strict rules over how many signatures are required. A candidate must have 10,000 valid signatures including at least 400 from every single district in the state in order to make the ballot.
Virginia does represent more than 10% of the total delegates required to obtain the nomination giving it powerful status in the race. Only a failed system excludes four out of the six major candidates seeking access to the ballot. Voters deserve the right to vote for any top contender, especially leading candidates.
We demand the Republican Party of Virginia to change this policy or as a minimum to permit the write-in campaign before the election takes place to make sure that all the voters of Virginia are able to vote for the candidate of their choice.

Hank Williams Jr is the Pete Rose of getting into country music's hall of fame. He is the most deserving singer/songwriter not in yet. He should have been in decades ago. He is labeled an outlaw and his political views are blinding the association's vision of his true talents.
He is more deserving than half of the already inducted. I need your help to show the association that he belongs. It is not right or fair to the music world and all his fans. He has been in the business since the 50's law starting out very young after his father passed. Do this for me and all his fans. Look at his music not his views.
Vote Hank Williams Jr. Thank you and God bless.
Governor Nikki Haley has lied on job applications as a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives, recklessly undermined the educational system of the State of South Carolina, and cruely ignored the misfortunate citizens in her state through divisive judgements. Her policies have led to job losses and failures of state departments in every county.
13. One Primary
In 2008 millions of voters were disenfranchised in the Republican Primary. Due to the length of the primary season, many of the candidates had dropped out leaving the voters in the states that hold their primaries later in the season, with little or no choice.
For the 2012 primary, we would like to see more debates with candidates and then hold just One Primary in which everyone can vote for their favorite candidate.
~ Politics is not a matter of ruling over the people or of exercising power. Politics is performance of service to people, contributing to the welfare of the people. ~ V. Pirapakaran.
Members of Georgia's 5th Congressional District have a choice of candidates this year, for the first time in several decades. John Lewis, the incumbent of 24 years is opposed by Republican Candidate Fenn Little.
While Fenn Little may be an underdog with little name recognition, this does not appear to be an indicator in the support he is receiving from the constituents of this diverse district. John Lewis has refused to reply to the claims that he is a puppet of Washington Politics who is disconnected to his constituent base and their needs and priorities. He has also refused to debate Fenn Little.
If you would like to see these candidates answer the questions for the constituents themselves, PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION.
Randall Hank Williams (born May 26, 1949), better known as Hank Williams, Jr., is an award-winning American country singer-songwriter and musician.
Williams has been politically involved with the Republican Party. On October 13, 2008, at a rally in Virginia Beach for Republican Presidential nominee John McCain, he performed "McCain-Palin Tradition", a song in support of McCain and his Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
On November 17, 2008, Williams announced that he will run for the U.S. Senate in 2012 as a Republican party candidate, challenging incumbent Republican Senator Bob Corker. Williams was reported to have already consulted with Senator Lamar Alexander and former Senator Bill Frist, both Republicans from Tennessee. Bocephus for President in 2012!!!
A radio presenter has been sacked for remarks he made on air about the Queen's Christmas message.
Comedian Tom Binns lost his job at Birmingham radio station BRMB after interrupting the speech (which was being broadcast in error) and describing it as "boring".
This sacking is quite simply outrageous and is an attack on free speech and the rights of those who regard free speech to be essential in a Democracy.
It's election year 2010:
After two years of a 60-seat supermajority in the US Senate, Congressional Democrats under President Obama have moved virtually unchecked to force their radical agenda on the American people. The GOP is in disarray and hope seems lost.
In Arkansas, Senator Blanche Lincoln (D) is up for re-election to the US Senate. Most pundits consider this race a done deal, but there’s a black horse. A man who has a proven track record of victory against all odds in state that’s dominated by the Democrats. A man who would snatch a Senate seat from the Democrats “safe” column and bring this great country one step closer to reclaiming individual liberty, fiscal responsibility, traditional values, and small government.
Governor Mike Huckabee is just the man this country needs to save the Senate from another 60-seat liberal supermajority. Join us!
United States Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, both of Maine, have a record of repeatedly voting against the positions of the republican party.
This includes their support of the $One-Trillion "Stimulus" bill which could not have passed without their votes.
The Republican Party has continued to stray from the Reagan conservatism that made it effective and a force for good in the world. If the GOP hopes to become relevant again, it must halt this left-ward drift and return to conservatism.
Otherwise, it will continue to lose elections and to give this country by default to the socialists, fascists, and others on the Left who currently are working through the Democrat Party and its affiliates in various NGOs and the mainstream news media.

whereas, Arlen Specter supports the "Employee Free Choice Act" and opposes voluntary unionism and consistantly votes against Right to Work legislation,
23. Expel Specter
Request that Senator Arlen Specter resign from the Republican Party:
United States Senator Arlen Specter, Republican from Pennsylvania, was one of only three Republicans in both houses of congress to support the Democrats' Economic Stimulus Bill. Without the votes of those three republican senators, this bill, which wastefully spends an unprecedented $787 billion, could not have passed the senate. Senator Specter supported this bill in opposition to the distinctly expressed desires of his republican constituents. And, since January 2000, Sen. Specter has voted against the position of the GOP more than 600 times.
In addition to his support for the stimulus bill, Senator Specter has opposed the Republican Party on the following issues and more:
- The troop surge in Iraq
- The impeachment trial of President Clinton
- Restoring habeas corpus for suspected terrorists
- Lifting restrictions on stem cell research
- A constitutional amendment banning gay marriage
- "Card Check," a bill which would deny workers the right to a secret ballot regarding unionization
- Pro-life, anti-abortion legislation
Due to Senator Specter's repeated and harmful opposition to republican positions, it is necessary for the Republican National Committee to demand that Senator Specter resign his membership in the Republican Party.
About CEP: CEP is a group of traditionalist conservatives who, realizing that the GOP is moving too leftward, started a petition on March 3, 2007 to encourage conservatives to leave the GOP if a suitable presidential candidate is not chosen in 2008.
Why do Republicans in the House of Representatives, choose not to support the Social Security bill? Failure to maintain substantial payroll tax revenues will allow the government to perpetuate the Social Security Trust Fund.
So why should We The People who can least afford to pay employment taxes under the guise that it is for retirement. Let's stop The government from diverting trillions of dollars of employment taxes for other purposes under the disguise of charity.
Marriage is a sacred gift, sanctioned by God Himself. As such, marriage must be held in the highest regard, kept safe from those who would sully the institution.
According the the National Center for Policy Analysis, "no region of the United States has a higher divorce rate than the Bible Belt. Nearly half of all marriages break up, but the divorce rates in these southern states are roughly 50 percent above the national average."
According to George Barna Research Group, Massachusetts has the lowest divorce rate among all 50 states, a reliably progressive state.
9 of the 10 lowest divorce rates are in the Northeast states.
The Associated Press, using data supplied by the US Census Bureau, found that the highest divorce rates are to be found in the Bible Belt. The AP report stated that "the divorce rates in these conservative states are roughly 50 percent above the national average of 4.2 per thousand people."
(Boston Globe, Oct 31, 2004)
By banning marriage for those citizens that describe themselves as conservative, we will drastically stem our nation's divorce rate and thus, protect the sanctity of this most holy of covenants.
WE DECLARE that Republican leadership while in the majority during the Bush 8 years failed. Now in the minority, Republican leadership has improved, but still falls short of true Conservative leadership.
WE DECLARE that Republican politicians have compromised Conservative values in favor of "reaching across the aisle" in the name of "bipartisanship" to "get things done in Washington." In doing so, these very politicians have damaged this nation, weakened the Constitution, and done harm to individual freedoms.
WE ASSERT that the Republican National Committee has failed to advance and articulate Conservatism. We claim that by so doing, the RNC has done harm to the Conservative movement and thus to the party itself.

With our soldiers engaged in two overseas wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, we must stop and ask: do we really have the resources to catapult ourselves into a third war? Unfortunately, the third war on the radar is the new updated “Culture War.”
On behalf of many Americans, we implore the presidential campaigners and the political parties to remain focused on the serious issues we need to address to get our country back on the right track!
Democratic Senator Tony DeLuca and Democratic Representative John J. Viola have each been in their current roles for over a decade. During that time Delaware has slipped farther and farther from living up to its nickname "The First State." Delaware needs a change.
Delaware needs new ideas and new politicians who believe in the state and what can be achieved to get us back to being "The First State". I am Evan Queitsch and I am prepared to be that change. I pledge to fight to make Delaware first in energy, education, immigration reform, budget reform, law enforcement, political reform, and the Constitution. Please visit my website for more information about my ideas for Delaware.
