I am an unabashed constitutional, conservative Christian. The problem is, most Republican national politicians and conservative celebrities are NOT. This blog will expose the "ravening wolves in sheep's clothing" (Matt 7:15) who pose as conservatives thereby giving true conservatives a bad name and giving liberals easy straw-man targets.

TANCREDO CURRENT - NOT MUCH BETTER
TANCREDO SPENDING - UNCONSTITUTIONAL
HUNTER SPENDING - Apologize to Drunken Sailors
TOM TANCREDO RIGHT? - WRONG.
Tom Tancredo does have a good Christian testimony and would probably be the best president since Cal Coolidge, still, he has wavered some and leaves something to be desired.
Summer 1999 81% Conservative
(5) Designating the Sudbury, Assabet, and Concord as Wild and Scenic Rivers, H.R. 193. This bill would designate a combined total of 29 miles of three rivers in Massachusetts as Wild and Scenic under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968. Although the bill would prevent the federal government from actually acquiring title or easements for any of the land adjacent to the sections of river in question, through a loophole the government could still acquire such land or easements “under other laws for other purposes.” The House passed the bill on February 23, 1999 by a vote of 395 to 22 (Congressional Record, page H679, roll call 23; we have assigned pluses to the “nays” and minuses to the “yeas”).
(19) Gun Control, H.R. 2122. This legislation would clamp down on gun sales at gun shows, which for the purposes of this bill are defined as any event “at which 50 or more firearms are offered or exhibited for sale, transfer, or exchange” or at which there are ten or more vendors. Under this bill, a person offering a firearm for sale who is not himself licensed is prevented from selling that firearm directly to the buyer. The licensed vendor must complete a background check before the transfer of the weapon. The House rejected the measure on June 18, 1999 by a vote of 147 to 280 (Congressional Record, pages H4656-57, roll call 244; we have assigned pluses to the “nays” and minuses to the “yeas”).
Much worse - another gun grabber.
Winter 2000 77% Conservative
27 More Federal Education Spending. This amendment would simply express the "sense of the Senate" that $132 million of the proposed 10-year tax cut should be shifted to wasteful federal education programs. The proposal untruthfully states that the tax cut it would abolish, a one percent reduction in the rate of the lowest income tax bracket, would "disproportionately benefit upper income taxpayers." Senator Tim Hutchinson (R-AR) argued against the amendment, noting that "If we do not pass the $792 billion tax relief, that money will not go toward paying down the national debt. It will, as already suggested in the speeches on the other side in the last few minutes, immediately go into more spending." The Senate killed the measure, an amendment to S. 1429, defeating by a 48-52 vote on July 30, 1999 a waiver of a Budget Act point of order against the measure (Roll Call 232). We have assigned pluses to the "nays."
I was hoping for better from Tancredo.
39 Validating Roe v. Wade. This non-binding, "sense of Congress" measure would put Congress on record as stating that "Roe v. Wade was an appropriate decision," that giving mothers the ability to kill their babies in utero "secures an important constitutional right," and that Roe "should not be overturned." The 1973 Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision was a landmark in judicial activism; it single-handedly nullified the long-standing abortion laws in 50 states without citing a single precedent for High Court jurisdiction over abortion laws. Since the Roe decision, more than 38 million unborn children have been slaughtered with legalized abortion. This measure, a second-degree amendment to the partial birth abortion ban bill (S. 1692), was adopted by the Senate on October 21, 1999 by a vote of 51-47 (Roll Call 337). We have assigned pluses to the "nays." After the second-degree Roe amendment was added to the underlying amendment, the Roe amendment was added to the bill by voice vote.
This one stunned me. I quadruple-checked it and wrote to the source to make sure I had this one accurate. This, and his gun-grabber vote, eliminates Tancredo as a possibility to me.
DUNCAN HUNTER A TRUE CONSERVATIVE? SORRY

Giuliani pleaded for Republicans to adopt a "big-tent" approach, permitting differing views on less important issues.
TG: The "big tent" belongs with the clowns in the circus, not in the Republican party.
By "less important issues", Rudy is specifically talking about BABY KILLING, SODOMY, and GUN RIGHTS. He is now boldly coming out as a LIBERAL on those issues instead of flip-flopping.
By taking a liberal position on gun rights, Rudy is admitting beforehand that, if elected, he will LIE when taking the oath of office to defend the Constitution of the United States, since he is opposing the 2nd Amendment's inalienable right of the people to keep and bear arms.
By taking a liberal position on sodomy, he is proving himself to be ungodly and immoral. Giuliani once considered entering the priesthood. (Yes, those two sentences are related).
By taking a liberal position on baby killing, Giuliani is, well, a baby killer. No one should have the "choice" to be able to wantonly KILL another innocent person.

ROMNEY SEE, ROMNEY DO.
The candidates seem to be fighting to see who can out flip-flop the other. They are copying each other like they are automatons. Now it has surfaced that the Romney's have also given money to Planned Barrenhood, the largest baby killing facility in the free world (and America).
The money was technically given by his wife, Ann, but as members of the LDS church (Mormons), it can hardly be expected that Ann would be so rebellious as to support financially something her husband would oppose.
Force Catholic hospitals in Massachusetts to hand out the abortion drug "Plan B" or close their doors?
Ignore the Catholic Action League who lobbied for a conscience clause so Catholic civil service workers wouldn't be forced to perform same-sex "marriage" ceremonies? Romney's position: Perform homosexual "marriages" or you're fired.
Tell Boston's largest adoption agency, Catholic Charities, they had to place vulnerable orphan children in the homes of homosexual activists or go out of business? (Boston Catholic Charities closed their doors.) Even Michael Dukakis said Romney was wrong to force Catholics to violate their beliefs.
Force Catholics (and other pro-life people) to fund abortions in his (post-conversion) health-care plan that he's so "very proud" of?
And what about Terri Schiavo, who Romney agreed should be starved to death? Sit down, Mr. Romney. I don't care whom you've paid to say nice things about you; you're disqualified.

Giuliani Emerging As Favorite of Gays
Rudy Giuliani emerged as a favorite among many members of the GOP's largest gay organization, who cited his record on social issues, taxes and defense.
Is that an endorsement Rudy should be proud of?
