Sam BrownbackOctober 21, 2007

Dear Friends,

On Friday, at the beautiful Kansas State Capitol in Topeka, I announced that I am ending my bid for the presidency.

While I am saddened to leave the race, I can’t tell you how grateful and blessed I feel to have been a part of it. To think that the son of a farmer from Parker, Kansas (population 250) could run for the highest office of this great land tells you about the endless opportunities in America.

And I can’t thank you enough for being a part of it.

Now that our campaign is over, I am going to think of the thousands of supporters I met with across the country that gave me strength and carried me and our shared values forward throughout the race.

My campaign staff and volunteers often joke about how they could easily recite my campaign trail stump speech verbatim for the rest of their lives because they have heard it so many times.

Throughout my stump speech, which I am sure many of you heard especially if you’re from Iowa, I would always address issues and where I stand on them. But I always would end my stump speech centered around one key word: optimism.

Optimism, as defined by Webster’s dictionary: an inclination to put the most favorable construction upon actions and events or to anticipate the best possible outcome.

My friends, America is the greatest nation in the history of mankind because our founding principles declared both the dignity and liberty of man. And a sense of optimism is how we, as a party, can unite in order to move forward and tackle the tough issues facing our nation today.

I am optimistic that we, as a country, will unite to win the war in Iraq by moving forward with a bipartisan political solution that matches the honorable and valiant efforts put forward by our brave men and women in the military.

I am optimistic that our party will stand by its principles and nominate a candidate who will respect and embrace our deeply held conviction that every human life is sacred, including the unborn. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the unalienable rights of man. But we must always remember: life comes first.

I am optimistic that our party will continue to work diligently to renew the culture, protect marriage, and rebuild the family as the foundational unit of society. And we must always remember that the separation of church and state was meant to protect the church from the state, not the state from the church. We must continue to embrace God in our nation, including in our schools and in the public square.

I am optimistic that our party will move our country forward with a bold 21st century using proven, pro-growth methods: axing the tax code, instituting personal social security accounts, and investing in proven technology to become energy secure.

I am optimistic that the Republican Party will nominate a candidate who can unite both wings of the party: both social and fiscal conservatives. My friend, if our party hopes to achieve success next year, we can only do so by flying on both wings — social and economic conservatism — not just one.

However, given how high the stakes are for our nation, sheer optimism is not enough. We must work for these values as a party.

Join me today in committing to build our party, but never to abandon our core principles.

And I can’t tell you enough: thank you. It has been a distinct honor and a blessing.

Sincerely,

Sam Brownback

Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS)

  1. Of course no mention that the comments under every last newspaper article for the past 6 months dogged Brownback for his support of radical feminists. The moral of the story is that any male who wants to get elected in the US from now on, needs to pay attention to the men’s rights movement and sites like http://www.mensnewsdaily.com.

  5. Ed note will be at the party too, wearing a gas mask and a plate full of cocaine on his head, and an ashtray on the back.

  6. Jim,

    You should look beyond your hate and see what a decent man is like; Sam Brownback. The deck was stack against Sam because he is a good man but did Sam back down? No! Sam fought the good fight. Now that it is clear that forces of liberalism and their puppets are to too strong Sam retires from the field, his honor and repetition intact for all the mud slung at him.

    That’s an example that even a rubber clad stoner pervert like you can understand Jim.

  11. “I am optimistic that our party will stand by its principles and nominate a candidate who will respect and embrace our deeply held conviction that every human life is sacred.”
    I was thinking, “Now there’s a good guy.” And then I thought, “Why?” It’s because he sounds like a libertarian there. Notice how in his whole speech he never mentions hatred for minorities or people of different religions. While I don’t agree with his policies on religion or education, you guys have really misrepresented him. He isn’t all bad, as this blog would suggest. Just putting that out there.
    And I have a question for Sisyphus, just out of curiosity; I’m not trying to be condescending or anything. Actually, a few people have asked you this question and I don’t think you’ve ever answered. Why pick “Sisyphus?” I mean, Sisyphus was a masochistic narcissist. He was a Greek king who was avaricious and deceitful, violating the laws of hospitality by killing travelers and guests. He seduced his niece, took his brother’s throne and betrayed Zeus’s secrets. It just doesn’t seem like the kind of thing that fits your character.

    He had nothing different to offer except continuing down the same disasterous path the current president has mis-led us on.

    He’s out. He’s toast. He’s gone. He’s finished. He’s done. He’s outta there.

    …..and no, I’m not from that open border supporting state where the current failure of a president resides.

    Jim,

    Consider the kind of things you doubtless place in your mouth you have no room to call anyone “fool”. As for Sam being a loser, when Jesus inspires a mass write in campaign in Novemeber 2008 it will be too late to repent of your harsh words.

  16. Uh, Jesus ain’t running for candidate as far as I know.
    Neiter do I call anyone a fool, that’s your words, not mine, I just stated that Sam is a loser, for he chickened out.

    Thats OK. Rudarry Clintianni will probably become the next President because you are to much of a coward to vote for Ru Paul.

    Not to mention Jesus still hates you……

    But chickening out isn´t very brave, right?

    Well, for the funny part, spacebrother´s comment is comedy gold and says it all.
