Just did a little research...

All his votes here :

Voted against :
HR 1 - Family & Medical Leave Bill - Key Vote

Vote to pass a bill that allows eligible employees to take up to 12 workweeks of unpaid leave during a 12 month period due to the birth or adoption of a child, a serious health condition of a family member or his or her own serious health condition.

Because parents should go bankrupt if they want to have kids!

HR 2491 - Veterans Administration and Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Bill Fiscal Year 1994 - Key Vote

Vote to adopt a conference report that appropriates $88.88 billion for the Departments of Veteran Affairs, Housing and Urban Development, and independent agencies for fiscal year 1994.

Voting against veterans... ain't that nice from chickenhawk Newt?

H Amdt 291 - Burden Sharing Amendment - Key Vote

Vote to adopt an amendment that cuts $1 billion allocated to United States forces in Europe and transfers $500 million to deficit reduction and $500 million to defense conversion, reinvestment, and transition assistance programs and encourages the President to ask allies to increase their funding of U.S. troops on European soil.

Because more military spending is good right?

H Amdt 462 - Tobacco Education Amendment - Key Vote

Vote to adopt an amendment to HR 6 that requires schools to include tobacco in the drug-prevention programs authorized in this bill.

Tobacco is good!

H Amdt 491 - Homosexuality Education Amendment - Key Vote

Vote to adopt an amendment to HR 6 that prohibits federal funding from being used to distribute "obscene" material on school grounds and to state that this amendment should not be interpreted as a federal control on school curricula.

So Newt thinks that federal funds being used to distribute obscene material on school grounds is alright.

HR 4092 - Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 - Key Vote

Vote to pass a bill that provides $28.69 billion in grants from 1995-2000 to reduce violence and crimes, enhance law enforcement, provide education and activity programs for youth, and for other purposes.

Because more violence and crime is good.

HR 3355 - Omnibus Crime Bill - Key Vote

Vote to adopt a conference report that amends the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 to provide $30.07 billion in grants from 1995-2000 to reduce violence and crimes, enhance law enforcement, provide education and activity programs for youth, and for other purposes.

Yet again voting for more crime and violence.

S 636 - Abortion Clinic Access bill - Key Vote

Vote to adopt a conference report that establishes fines and penalties for individuals using force, intimidation, or physical obstruction to prevent access by a person who works at or is seeking to use pregnancy or abortion-related services or a place of worship.

So apparently, Newt thinks that using force, intimidation or physical obstruction to stop an abortion is alright.

Voted for :
HR 3450 - North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Implementation Act - Key Vote

Vote to pass a bill that approves and implements the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and establishes the terms of the United States' entry.

We all know what that did to the US economy...

H Amdt 611 - Lifting Arms Embargo on Bosnia Amendment - Key Vote

Lifting Arms Embargo on Bosnia Amendment

we all know what happened after that... it was passed in June 94... Clinton blocked it till november. The war continued till December 95. Basically, Newt wanted to sell weapons to people so they could commit massacres. Typical Newt.

HR 2 - Line Item Veto Act - Key Vote

Vote to pass a bill that would grant the President legislative line item veto authority.

Because the president office needs more powers... right Newt?

HR 1058 - Legal Reform bill - Key Vote

Vote to override a Presidential veto of a bill that amends the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 , limits damages that can be awarded for securities fraud and requires plaintiffs to prove an intentional misstatement in order to receive damages.

Aka limits what the criminals in Wall Street pay in damages when they steal everything their clients got. Yet one more vote for the bankers from Newt.

S 652 - Telecommunications Bill - Key Vote

Vote to adopt a conference report that decreases regulations on telecommunications.
Eliminates regulations concerning the number radio broadcast stations that can be owned or controlled by one entity.
States that providers of interactive computer services will not be liable for attempting to restrict access to obscene material through the internet.

So basically saying that ISPs CAN censor the internet + allowing more concentration of medias into fewer hands...

HR 3717 - Needle Exchange Funding Ban - Key Vote

Vote to pass a bill that prohibits the use of federal funds for any program that distributes needles or syringes.

Because it's way better if they exchange needles than have non-infected new ones... right? The spread of AIDS sure is awesome.

And I would have a small but very aggressive anti-terrorism agency.

Anyway the guy voted for too much bad stuff it can't all be listed, there's not enough room on the entire internet!

I wish I had skills to make a Ron Paul 2012 video that attacks Newt with these votes... if someone has skills... it sure would be nice.

Newt needs to go down.

The part about Newt is 5:40-8:01...



Basically lay it all out just on the character of Newt.

Let's also mention that Newt has gone to Bohemian Grove... where they worship an owl, do a mock sacrifice and have sex with gay prostitutes.

Newt is total scum and should never be president.

The Swinging Days of Newt Gingrich

Newt's 2nd wife says he wanted an open marriage. This 1984 Mother Jones' profile was the first to expose Gingrich's wild side.


L.H. Carter was among Gingrich's closest friends and advisors until a falling out in 1979.

"The important thing you have to understand about Newt Gingrich is that he is amoral," says Carter. "There isn't any right or wrong, there isn't any conservative or liberal. There's only what will work best for Newt Gingrich.

Sure Newt is a mess, but the fact is that he's freak'n brilliant and could easily squash Obama into the dust during a debate. Obama is disengaged. His 'yes we can' rhetoric doesn't stand up against the powerhouse of Newt during a debate. I can't stand Newt but the man does debate VERY well. And he's got the experience whereas Obama is an inept nobody.

Newt is spooky - he's freak'n brilliant and knows the game and the players around the world and in the USA ... but he's also corrupt to the core and is a proven liar and opportunist. That makes for a very dangerous combination. But which is worse for the USA .... Newt as he is, or Obama who is also completely corrupt, totally inept and has handed the Chinese and Muslim brotherhood Americas balls in a box wrapped with a big red bow.

I don't know who is worse.

Just like Ted Bundy was a master at picking up women and charming them... till he murdered them.

Newt is a sociopath with no morals and must never become president.

Sociopath? Maybe. Let's see ... (and lets see how many politicians fit the profile!
OH FUN!)

Sociopathic symptoms


Glibness and Superficial Charm
Manipulative and Conning
Grandiose Sense
Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
Shallow Emotions
Incapacity for Love
Need for Stimulation
Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Irresponsibility/Unreliability
Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility .


Well .. Newt and Obama both have many of these checked off ... but I don't know if they fit the sociopath bill .. or if they are just plain old self centered and/or evil people. Glibness and Superficial Charm ; Manipulative and Conning;
Grandiose Sense; Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt; Irresponsibility/Unreliability; Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility - Both Obama and Newt have those. The Callousness/Lack of Empathy - all politicians claim empathy with the voters .. but how many actually really do have it? I'm betting not many. Sexual behavior/infidelity - we know Newt has that one checked off for sure ... and there are rumors of Obama and Donald Young (the murdered Chicago church organist). So we aren't sure about Obama on that one. Newt obviously has a life plan so we can't check that one off for him. As far as parasitic lifestyle ... as much as both Newt and Obama screw the US taxpayer over and live the high life, I'm not sure if that actually fits.

So which is worse in the white house ... I can't decide ... A 'smart' sociopath or a disengaged inept sociopath.
I dunno'.

We could have fun going over all the politicians and seeing if they fit ... Bill Clinton? Hillary Clinton? John Kerry? George W. Bush? Dick Cheney? Oh ... we could have fun checking the list against folks in DC all day!

A vote for Gingrich or Santorum is a wasted vote! Here's why....

The MSM is using Internet polls for the sheep...just like the man behind the curtain in the wizard of oz! No matter what the media wants you to believe, it’s already a two-man race. Of the 2286 total Republican delegates, 1144 are needed to win the nomination. In five states: Virginia, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee and Illinois - Gingrich and Santorum are not even on the ballot. That’s 564 delegates that they cannot get. After South Carolina, only 59 delegates have been allocated to the four candidates. Mitt Romney has 39 of those. This means Santorum or Gingrich has to pick up 1144 delegates from the remaining 1683.

Dr. Paul is on the ballot in every state so let’s say that Dr. Paul only picks up 20% of the total number of delegates – I happen to believe he will do much better – but let’s pick 20%. That’s 457 delegates for Dr. Paul. Add that to the 564 that Newt and Santorum won’t have a shot at and now there are 1021 delegates that Santorum and Gingrich have no chance of getting. Subtract that 1021 from the total 2286 and you’re left with 1265 delegates. That means that Gingrich and Santorum, one or the other, must pick up over 90% of the available delegates to get the nomination. So, essentially, we’re down to Dr. Paul and Romney.

A vote for Gingrich and Santorum is a wasted vote! A vote for Ron Paul is not a wasted vote and may well mean that the next President of the United States will be a man that, for the last 30 years, has never broken a promise, compromised his principles or waffled his position on an issue. A man that still believes that the Constitution of the United States is THE law of the land and that the protection of our individual liberties is the primary reason for the Federal Government. Dr. Paul does not need to win FL. He only needs to win the caucus states, which overwhelmingly support him.

As much as the media would like us to believe, this race is not over.

RON PAUL 2012!
