Conservatives:

Rudy Giuliani is an unacceptable Republican nominee for President of the United States. He is pro-abortion, pro-partial birth abortion, pro-registration of handguns, and pro-homosexual rights.  He is the most liberal Republican candidate for President in our nation’s history.

Conservatives should leave no doubt that we will not support his candidacy under any circumstances.  Therefore, we have created the Conservative Declaration of Independence to publicly state our position regarding the Republican Party’s consideration of a liberal as our Presidential nominee.

The Conservative Declaration of Independence

– March 15, 2007 –

 

When, in the course of political process, it might become necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, it becomes necessary to declare the causes which would impel the separation.  We, the undersigned of this digital document, hereby agree that we areConservatives first and Republicans second, and that we would not support the candidacy of Rudolph William Louis “Rudy” Giuliani  if  the Republican Party chooses to nominate him for President of the United States. We hereby agree that Mr. Giuliani is an American hero for his performance in the aftermath of 9-11, however his liberal record as Mayor, appointment of liberal judges, and the conduct of his personal life make it impossible for us to support his candidacy under any circumstances. 

We hereby urge conservatives across the country to join us in signing this Conservative Declaration of Independence by emailing theconservativedeclaration@hotmail.com .

 

 

In Agreement, 

New Hampshire

Article III       Opposition

Richard Land, head of public policy for the Southern Baptist Convention said that evangelicals believe the former mayor showed a lack of character during his divorce from his second wife, Donna Hanover.

 

“I mean, this is divorce on steroids,” Land said. “To publicly humiliate your wife in that way, and your children. That’s rough. I think that’s going to be an awfully hard sell, even if he weren’t pro-choice and pro-gun control.”

“Some would stay home, and I would counsel them not to do that,” Land said of the prospects of a Giuliani-Clinton presidential race. “They need to go and vote. They can always not vote in that race. I would go and vote, and I would vote for congressmen and I would vote for state senator and state representative, I would vote for U.S. senator, I would vote for governor. But I would not vote in the presidential race.”

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and get his take on Presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani.  He’s the front runner but it’s kind of like here in DC, you drive over the Potomac at night and it looks beautiful but if you get down near it you certainly wouldn’t want to take anything out of it and eat it. It’s polluted it’s got problems.”

“A Republican Party led by Rudy Giuliani would be a party of contempt for the pro-life position,” the editors of the National Catholic Register said recently about the Roman Catholic candidate. “The bottom line: Republicans have made inroads into the Catholic vote for years because of the pro-life issue. If they put a pro-abortion politician up for president, the gains they‘ve built for decades will vanish overnight.”

 

Article IV       Appointment of Judges

Giuliani Supports Judges Like Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Politico: Giuliani-Appointed Judges Tend To Lean To The Left

By: Ben Smith

When Rudy Giuliani faces Republicans concerned about his support of gay rights and legal abortion, he reassures them that he is a conservative on the decisions that matter most.

“I would want judges who are strict constructionists because I am,” he told South Carolina Republicans last month. “Those are the kinds of justices I would appoint — Scalia, Alito and Roberts.”

 

But most of Giuliani’s judicial appointments during his eight years as mayor of New York were hardly in the model of Chief Justice John Roberts or Samuel Alito — much less aggressive conservatives in the mold of Antonin Scalia.

A Politico review of the 75 judges Giuliani appointed to three of New York state’s lower courts found that Democrats outnumbered Republicans by more than 8 to 1. One of his appointments was an officer of the International Association of Lesbian and Gay Judges. Another ruled that the state law banning liquor sales on Sundays was unconstitutional because it was insufficiently secular.

 

A third, an abortion-rights supporter, later made it to the federal bench in part because New York Sen. Charles E. Schumer, a liberal Democrat, said he liked her ideology.

Cumulatively, Giuilani’s record was enough to win applause from people like Kelli Conlin, the head of NARAL Pro-Choice New York, the state’s leading abortion-rights group. “They were decent, moderate people,” she said.
