Election 2012 – My Endorsement For President

Chuck Norris reveals his choice for Republican nomination

From World Net Daily, by Chuck Norris, January 21, 2012 – Our republic as America’s founders created it is under assault from extremists outside our country and anti-constitutionalists inside our country. Combined with the flailing American economy and global markets, Western civilization remains on the brink, as experts and all the GOP presidential candidates agree.

President Obama has tried and failed miserably to fix our economy, deepening us and our posterity into more than $6 trillion in additional national debt – something he criticized former President Bush for as “unpatriotic” and “irresponsible.” Yet unemployment rates remain at higher levels than when Obama was elected, and the dollar is as unstable as the Middle East.

As important as it is, now is not the time to be mincing through minutiae and infighting via typical partisan battles. Rome is burning, and we need to appoint the best firemen possible to rush in and put out her fury. What’s critical at this point is to appoint a commander in chief who can clearly lead America to a more solvent and secure future.

No man or candidate is perfect. We all have skeletons in our closet. If buried bones became unforgivable bones of contention, the world would never know or will never know another Benjamin Franklin, King David and others like them. We must remember that we’re electing a president, not a pastor or pope. And with the mainstream media and a billion-dollar Obama campaign coffer on the president’s side, we need a veteran of political war who has already fought Goliath, because he will be facing Goliath’s bigger brother.

In the last few editions of my weekly column, I detailed “10 questions to find our next president” in no particular order of importance. I proposed that the name of the candidate that fills the majority of the answers deserved readers’ vote.

Who is most committed to follow and lead by the U.S. Constitution?

Who has the greatest leadership ability to rally, unify and mobilize citizens across political and societal spectrums?

Who has the best working comprehension of America?

Who has the best ability to influence a volatile world away from its brink of destruction?

Who has clear and present moral fortitude?

Who can best beat President Barack Obama (in and outside of debates)?

Who has the best abilities to lead Washington politics and politicians?

Who has the best plan and leadership ability to restore America’s economy?

Who is the most fiscally prudent?

Who has demonstrated the highest regard for human life?

For my wife, Gena, and I, we sincerely believe former Speaker Newt Gingrich is the answer to most of those questions and deserves our endorsement and vote.

We agree with our friend and governor of the great state of Texas, Rick Perry, when he suspended his campaign and endorsed Gingrich, that Newt “has the heart of a conservative reformer.” We believe Newt’s experience, leadership, knowledge, wisdom, faith and even humility to learn from his failures (personal and public) can return America to her glory days. And he is the best man left on the battlefield who is able to outwit, outplay and outlast Obama and his campaign machine.

I would only challenge and call Newt to fulfill the rallying strategy he outlined in South Carolina in November by utilizing the expertise and skill sets of the other GOP presidential candidates (even those who have bowed out) among his future administration. Newt explained:

I do approach this whole campaign, I think, differently from everybody else. We have a number of friends who are also running. We have no opponents except Barack Obama. I think that’s very important. I think [Abraham] Lincoln was very wise, as was captured in a book called “Team of Rivals,” in actually developing literally everybody who [was] his opponent ended up in the [presidential] Cabinet, because he needed all of them in order to be able to put together the political power during the crisis that we faced. I would say the same thing. I don’t know a single person currently running who wouldn’t be a very effective member of an administrative team who doesn’t have real talent and in some way would bring a unique strength. I don’t have any opponents on the Republican side.

Again, as Gov. Perry said during his “strategic retreat” (citing Gen. Sam Houston) from the GOP presidential race, “This mission is greater than any one man.”

I’m tired of watching our country being torn to shreds by those who think the answer is more government debt and control. I’m tired of being in bondage to a tax system that robs U.S. citizens like the king of England did before the Revolution. I’m tired of watching our sovereignty being sold by foreign loans and loose borders. And I will not sit back and merely watch this decay and degradation of the U.S. and then hand it over to my children and grandchildren to deal with.

That is why Gena and I have committed the rest of our lives to help Old Glory rise again to her heights of splendor. And that is why we are endorsing and standing with Newt Gingrich, because we believe he can lead all of us who have committed to the same.

If you’re ready to keep fighting the good fight and once and for all restore our republic, then I invite you to join my wife, Gena, and I by endorsing, rallying behind and voting for Newt Gingrich as GOP nominee and then president of the United States.

  1. The field of eligibility in this race is being cut down sharply and I am glad to start seeing endorsements. That being said, I still believe that it is a bit early and I certainly don’t expect the darts to stop being thrown by the candidates much less the liberal press missles being launched. I could hope the trouncing that the CNN newsman took from Newt will slow down their extremism in personal attacks by question, and return to the issues like jobs, abortions, energy, taxes, undeclared wars, budgets, obamacare, social security, medicare/medicaid. These are the issues destroying this country the moral issues are best addressed by our churches and their leaders, they will hold accountable those that must be held accountable via Gods direction not mans direction. I think if you analyze all factors that currently I would give an edge to Newt, but all the candidates have incredible strength against Obama who continues to be an abject failure in representing what this country stand for, he is not a leader he is the great destroyer of our Nation and must not be allowed to continue for four more years! Only you can stop this, so study the field! Then make your decision, not necessarily based on selfish reasons, but based on what is best for your children and this nations children going on from this important time in our history. Thanks Chuck and Gena for this important post 🙂

  2. Without choosign any candidate, I must say that I have been waiting a long time for a Republican with the wits and spine to deal with the liberal media like Newt has in at least three debates I have seen. He is smart enough to not let himself be baited into their traps and tough enough to spring his own trap when they charge into it. Bravo!

  3. I agree with you Mr. Pickard. I am leaning toward Newt – BUT,
    I think the task we face has two parts; replacing President Obama, then changing the hearts and minds of the massive number of voters who elected him. I suspect the latter will be the most difficult.

  4. Jackie, Obama himself has changed the hearts and minds of some ot those who originally, foolishly, supported him; but those that remain are not likely to be influenced by any facts, logic, reasoning, or evidence that we might offer. I have fought the battle of trying to convince liberals in the past and have concluded it is hopeless unless they themselves decide they are willing to open their minds. For most, that will never happen.

    Dont let FACTS get in the way, of endorsing the abortionist, serial adulterer and new Age globalist – listen to his cutesy soundbites, and be awed by his demagogery

    but facts wont go away

    he sounds like a typical RepubliCON candidate to me !

  6. Gingrich, may just get away with his pompous quick witted and brilliant comebacks to questions that are open ended and poorly worded. After all he is the only one who has admitted that he has made mistakes. I believe that the general public can forgive mistakes (pelosi) if they think you have seen the err of your ways and things have changed. Now not to think that he has my full support ( alittle rambling) I do believe that the liberals are scared to death of him because he will probably be able to make relevant a lot of the things that should have decemated The O the first time around. Is this the only problem that Romney has? I believe that Romney is the liberal choice as well as the choice of big government conservatives. Where does this leave us as far as choice goes. Ron P is a good man but could not get a majority if he never says another word. His backdoor political strategy will not work (convention delegates) the committed to RP may get a chance to split the vote at conventions but I am not convinced of this. I am still undecided based on the information available but will vote and support the eventual nominee. Good luck RP, but I am not counting on you to be successful.
