That's one thing is certain the era of big government will not be over President Obama is replaced by a president Romney or a president Gingrich.
In fact Gingrich's victory was a major victory for the progressive movement in America in maintaining its hold on power still.
Speaker Gingrich would like you to believe he is different that he really stands for limited government.
And last night's debate Gingrich claimed it was an early supporter -- Barry Goldwater in 1964.
No one finds that hard to believe that Lew Rockwell founder and chair of the -- -- institute.
And they one time volunteer for Goldwater's campaign.

-- judge knew was an only an ideological Rockefeller Republican which he he continues to be he was an actual Rockefeller Republican he was.
Chairman of students for Rockefeller.
In the south.
He worked very hard for Nelson Rockefeller to try to make him president while.
I would say the analog of the Ron Paul kids we're working our hearts out for Barry Goldwater and working against the new -- -- of the world.
-- Newt Gingrich is not only.
A person who supported -- Nelson Rockefeller against Barry Goldwater.

He believes in the TSA feeling everybody up.

Scary police state apparatus being built in this country.
So I I think that unfortunately as a Republican would be able to get away with more than -- -- and able to get away with all the Republican.
I'm thinking types would be backing him just because he has an.
Thank you judge the revolution continue.
