Here is a sample of a list of his biggest negatives...this guy is fucking WHACKED: - Voted for NAFTA, which handed a portion of our commercial sovereignty over to non-US interests. - Supported GATT - Supported WTO - Continually supported increasing federal spending - Voted for the creation of the Dept. of Education - from 1994-95 he voted for &45 billion in foreign aid - voted to raise the debt ceiling 4 times - Pushed Clinton to expand military presence in Bosnia - Supported spending $30B for the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 that shackled gun owners with new restrictions, federalized a number of crimes, and handed the feds police powers that the Constitution reserves to the states. - Voted to give billions of dollars to the UN for various missions - $40 billion in S&L bailouts - Cheated on his ex wife while she was sick and served her divorce papers while she was in the hospital. This has little to do with anything other than the guy's character, which ought to make any conservative "family first" advocate SICK. - Co-sponsored the 1987 Fairness Doctrine - Voted for an amendment to create a national police corps. - Helped Clinton give Mexico $52 billion in a bailout to save the Peso. - Supported federal tax dollars being spent on abortions - Helped a Clinton style democrat switch parties just to run against a republican congressman he didn't like - Introduced a House Resolution that would impose a life sentence or execution for a mere 2 ounces of marijuana being brought across the border. - Not a friend to gun rights at all - He supported a federal biometrics database that would require thumb printing to purchase guns. - Said he would have voted for TARP because "something needed to be done". And last but not least, and maybe the scariest thing about this guy, is his friendship with Alvin and Heidi Toffler, Marxists who wrote a book titled "Creating a New Civilization: The Politics of the Third Wave", a book detailing how the Constitution should be "reconsidered and altered" and that the current system of government should "die and be replaced". Here's a few pieces from that book: Newt endorsed and wrote the forward for this book, and calls these 2 people friends. How does this guy not scare the living fucking shit out of you???
