NEWT GINGRICH FOR SOUTH CAROLINA AND PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
The South Carolina Primary takes place this Saturday. Voters will be entering the polls throughout the Palmetto State to select the candidate that they believe can best represent them and defeat Barack Obama on November 6. South Carolina holds a singular distinction among all of the states in GOP politics and the Presidential nomination.
The first South Carolina primary was held in 1980 and the voters rallied behind Ronald Reagan who went on to win the nomination and the Presidency. Since that first Primary no GOP candidate running for President had gained the nomination without winning South Carolina therefore the Palmetto State has selected every Republican nominee since Reagan.
Obama must face a candidate who presents a polar opposite view of the issues and solutions that find no agreement with the socialist policies and agenda of the Marxist in chief. As in 1980 the establishment Republicans are pushing a moderate candidate fearing the conservative. Mitt Romney is that establishment candidate whose record as Massachusetts Governor more resembles the policy of Barack Obama making little distinction between the two. One has to ask, "why would voters in a General Election chose a Republican candidate whose policy differs little from Obama?" Why should we as conservatives settle once again for a candidate who does not meet our values and principles as we did in 2008 with disastrous results and John McCain?
We need a candidate and a President who is strong and will make a principled stand on the issues never apologizing for American exceptionalism embracing our allies, stand firm against our enemies, make the tough decisions to restore our economy and free American business from government to once again hire workers, put our fellow citizens back to work and bringing back the prosperity that we have known throughout our history.
Newt Gingrich is that man. He has a solid record of strong conservative policy and a knowledge of the issues with the strength of leadership that is second to none. In a one on one debate with Obama only Gingrich will call him to task and make him look the absolute fool that he is. He can and will unite Republicans, rally Independents and like Reagan before him bring in disgruntled Democrats who believe the radical liberalism of the Democrat Party has abandoned them.
When I enter my polling place on Saturday I will be voting for Newt Gingrich and encourage my fellow South Carolinians to do the same. As the Primaries move to Florida and other states I equally encourage conservatives to stand with me in voting for the conservative candidate who can defeat Obama and has the strength of leadership to restore our country to those principles we hold so dear and vote Newt Gingrich for President.
