A belief in an America as something created and needs to be reserved, as opposed to an America as a ‘great shining city on the hill,’ which we need to build and evolve through progressive change, will not garner my vote.

No Chance for Newt Gingrich
On Wednesday, May 11, former Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich may become the sixth formally declared contender for the republican nomination, and, as aconsequence, the 2012 presidential run for the White House. As of today, five republicans haveformally declared their candidacy, twelve or so have setup exploratory committees, and there arenine other prospective candidates. Of those who formally declared their candidacy, Gingrichwill certainly be the forerunner, ranking in most prominent popularity polls as between 10 and14%, but neither he nor they have any hope of receiving the republican nomination. Gingrichhas not actively campaigned for public office in some twenty-one years. Because of an ethics problem, two divorces and three marriages, the conservative American Family Association, andother groups will not support his candidacy.Albeit, in the mean time, with about twenty months before November¶s Election Day a lot canhappen to change that.Gingrich has said that Fox News¶ Sean Hannity will interview him on Wednesday, during whichhe will announce his intentions. If as expected, he declares that he will run, a speech he willdeliver on Friday at Georgia¶s Republican Party Convention will be the first presidentialcandidate speech heading into the republican primaries and caucuses planned for February,March, and April 2012. The Republican National Convention nomination for president isscheduled to take place the week of August 27, 2012 in Tampa, Florida.After the revelation that he had an affair with House of Representatives staffer Callista Bisek, in1998, he resigned from Congress. His affair continued through the President Bill Clinton andWhite House intern Monica Lewinsky sex scandal. Gingrich hypocritically lead the republican perjury investigation of Clinton in connection with his affair with Lewinsky.Gingrich was instrumental in removing Democratic Speaker of the House Jim Wright on ethicscharges. He later was investigated by the House ethics committee and fined $300,000 for violating House rules, knowingly violating the tax code by raising tax-deductions for a collegecourse he had taught.I would think that this history would be enough to deter Gingrich from running. But, beyondthat, even though sixty-eight year old Gingrich has name recognition, his rhetoric is old and³stale.´ It seems that he, as well as the other republican hopefuls, in many ways has a

Without bickering over political stands, how does Barack Obama want to build a shinning city on the hill when his policies has reduced us to the opening doorway to a socialistic society. Even to the driving point of forcing Obamacare down our throats which is so easily foreseen as unconstitutional. Socialized medicine, workforce, big government, the death of America, not her finest moments!

Well this must come as quite the egg on face since Newt Gingrich has soared within the party. As someone who keeps very close eye and almost ran for local politics myself, we always seem to forget the conventional simplicity of the TRUTH and how that can resonate with great power in times such as this. There is no better leader nor more capable candidate to approach the tough road ahead.
