On Facebook late Saturday night Sunday morning, as the Republican Primaries lumber on to either one or the other of two inglorious conclusions: Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich….
Mike Harris The Republican Party died when Bush the lesser was appointed dictator by the supreme court, and was not lawfully elected. Gingrich is an israeli stooge and anyone stupid enough to vote for him is a dolt.

Charles E. Lincoln I’m afraid that for me, as a former President of College Republicans, the Republican Party died during Iran-Contra. Reagan was elected in large part because of the disgrace the United States suffered abroad under Jimmy Carter after the overthrow of our ally (and very decent, pro-Western Middle East Progressive), the Shah, when our Embassy and all its staff were taken as hostages and we did nothing, or at least nothing very meaningful. When Reagan allowed his staff to do business with Iran, even if allegedly for the purpose of helping the Anticommunist Nicaraguan Contras, the phrase that came to my mind was that “treason” is aiding and abetting the enemies of the United States. I can’t unwrap that in my mind! And then, although I voted for George H.W. Bush in 1988, and even raucously celebrated his victory (the last time I ever considered myself a Republican), when George Herbert Walker Bush went back on his campaign slogan of “read my lips” and solemn promise of “no new taxes”, I just couldn’t take it anymore. The modern Republican Party is the corporate terrorist party of lies and evisceration of constitutional, human, and property rights. The modern Democratic Party is the corporate terrorist Party of Socialistic Slavery and the evisceration of constitutional, human, and property rights. Barry Goldwater wanted to overturn the New Deal-Federal Reserve Bank-IRS regime and Ron Paul seems to stand for the same thing. But is there any hope? Any hope at all? We have to elect pro-Constitutional members of Congress and the Senate, build a coalition to support any potential Constitutional President. How on earth did our country sink so low? Newt Gingrich is a totally committed globalist and enemy of the Constitution…for me, his role in sponsoring the 1996 Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act which all but abolished Habeas Corpus was decisive—that AEDPA just paved the way for the 2001 Patriot Act and last year’s NDAA abolition of the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments…. Damn Newt Gingrich to Hell in my opinion!
