    Thank you. Finally someone who talks about Ron Paul who actually is educated about his stances on issues.

    Paul has never taken a dime of special interest or lobbyists money, is for legalizing marijuana, and is for abolishing the income tax and the Fed. He is also against the Iran and Afghanistan wars (the one area I do disagree with him on).

    I doubt he'll get elected on one point alone: he's a crackpot, supported by moonbats and propped up by desperate and crazy people filled with rage and frustration over their inept system of governance and their steadily sinking country.
    Whats Crackpot about Ron Paul

    He is a "Republican" I can both respect and support. He at least make's logical appeals as opposed to emotional ones based on Fear and patriotism. He’s too intellectual for the Republican Party that’s why he doesn’t have a chance. They’d rather have some ignoramus with blue collar appeal.

    Personally I would welcome the GOP nominating either Ron Paul or Sarah Palin for president.....what about Glenn Beck! Or may that crazy guy who was putting everyone on his enemy list during a CPAC speech!

    What's funny is that the GOP doesn't seem interested in promoting some oridinary politician that does his job and stays out of trouble.....too boring! They have to have the media darling. The lastest is the new senator from Mass.

    And the Democrats do? Look at the last campaign: You had Obama, who had friends who bombed the Pentagon. You had Edwards, who was having an affair while his wife was fighting cancer (and he tried to pawn off his love child to another man). And Hillary Clinton, who couldn't remember her own name when put under oath.

    What Exactly is an ordinary Politican that does his job and represent the people?

    Every example that both BD and 1Bad gave seems to be the norm in D.C. ...... at least as long as I can remember both parties have been a bunch of lying corrupt M-F's

    You mean not initiating force? It's a good principle I think. Ideally governments would be held to that rule more strictly that people (since governments have more power).

    Do I live this way? Well... let's just say I have started fights before. It was wrong.

    It's guilt by association, he knew the guy.

    “Sen. Obama strongly condemns the violent actions of the Weathermen group, as he does all acts of violence,” said Obama’s press secretary, Bill Burton. “But he was an 8-year-old child when Ayers and the Weathermen were active, and any attempt to connect Obama with events of almost 40 years ago is ridiculous.”

    Yep! Guilty as hell!

    When I went to college back in Georgia I was very good friends with Ralph Reed who was over at my place often. At one time I even consider Neil Boortz a good friend...God help us all!

    So just because at one time I was friends with a couple of teabagging looneys then that must make me one too! Who would have thought it!

    The party simply did not want McCain. Doesn't look like they are supporting him much these days.

    Actually you seem to prefer hanging around wife beaters.

    Yeah, his winning the nomination was just a practical joke.

    The guy ate dinner at Obama's home.
    I hear it was the other way around, and Obama was invited by a third party. Either way it is weak sauce. An argument, if it can even be called that, designed to evoke a visceral fear response to Obama, based on the misrepresentation of information. Lies by omission. When you read the whole story it’s hardly an accurate portrayal of their relationship. It's akin to the false statements that he is not a citizen or is a Muslim. Planting seeds of fear. Try using actual logic to make your arguments.
