Republicans, The Fight Is Not Over

Posted: November 12, 2012 at 3:30 a.m.

Republicans of Arkansas, the fight is not over. We did well on the state level. Do not take the slim defeat of Mitt Romney as a signal to give up. We have much work left to do. We can still take this Republic back to the founding principles enshrined in our Constitution. But it is not as much a political issue as it is a moral issue.

Hey Guy Howe, there's a secession petition going around the slave states. Maybe you should sign it.

Right cdawg, remember it has happened before and some claim history repeats itself. Question is would the North have the resolve to stop it this time?

I would like to know how many of those who signed the various secession petitions were not residents of the states the petitions applied to. I suspect that there are at least as many people who would joke about not missing these states as there are residents of those states who would joke about seceding.

Hoo Rah, Guy!! Git some!

Let's start by deporting the Yankees in Bella Vista back to their homeland in the liberal Northeast.

("Guy" - no real Republican parent has ever named a child [except, perhaps, one born of legitimate rape] "Guy". It's way too French.)

the election proved that people do not want politics in washington to be about social issues or religious issues. that is the job of the churches and families .
the citizens voted for the middle class. jobs and equal health insurance.
tell your congress rep. to get his own health ins. the same as us, pay into social security like we do. and get paid ONLY when he works not after he leaves. tell him he works for us!

Whats equal health insurance? What is equal anything? We used to have seperate, but equal schools. Is that what you are talking about? Do you support equal treatment from the government such as someone who doesn't work does't get money from someone who does. Thats equal.
