My guess is 95% of those who voted for Newt in SC wouldn't have if they had known he is an admitted anti-constitutional socialist who believes in mandatory healthcare.

Transcript of Newt Gingrich interview - Glenn Beck GBTV

GINGRICH: I am for people, individuals, exactly like automobile insurance, individuals having health insurance and being required to have health insurance, and I am prepared to vote for a voucher system which will give individuals on a sliding scale a government subsidy so it will ensure that everyone as individuals have health insurance.

GLENN: Okay. Thatís 1993. Here is May 2011.

GINGRICH: All of a sudden responsibility to help pay for healthcare. And I think that there are ways to do it that make most libertarians relatively happy. Iíve said consistently we ought to have some requirement to either have health insurance or you post a bond or in some way you indicate you are going to be held accountable.

VOICE: That is the individual mandate, is it not?

GINGRICH: Itís a variation on it.

So why not mandatory life insurance too Newt? Can't have people dying and leaving their family with nothing can we?

How about mandatory membership at the local gym?

The individual mandate is the most hated part of Obamacare and Newt is for it?

Where's the media on this? Newt and Romney obviously have a gentleman's agreement not to discuss it.

Romney has tried to weasel his way out of the issue by claiming he dosen't believe the federal government has the right to impose mandatory healthcare and since he only imposed it at the state level that somehow that's OK.

Newt on the otherhand is openly pro mandatory healthcare.

This is a HUGE Constitutional issue.

Ron Paul should have been all over this in every debate.

Why wasn't he?

GLENN: Okay. That’s 1993. Here is May 2011.

GINGRICH: All of a sudden responsibility to help pay for healthcare. And I think that there are ways to do it that make most libertarians relatively happy. I’ve said consistently we ought to have some requirement to either have health insurance or you post a bond or in some way you indicate you are going to be held accountable.

Ron Paul should have been all over this in every debate.

Why wasn't he?

I suggest part of the reason is that Rom Paul's campaign management was not sharp enough to act on this.
He should bring in fresh, strategy-savvy people and replace many on the campaign organization.
But he may not realize the need. Many on his campaign are from the previous 2008 campaign whose original goal (later changed too late) was not to win but awaken the ideas.
