He's from Minnesota!  ;D

I love it when you think you told me, and people praise you for pwning me because they can't do it themselves.

Kiss-asses.  No names.   ::)


Anyways, the reason the GOP will lose is because they have their heads up their asses and they are trying to get people excited about silly things.  They don't want to accept responsibility for anything and they wont back their most powerful candidate because he doesn't follow their agenda.  In short it is the most arrogant group of humans I know to exist today.

Obama is a tool.  Accepted.  But guess what?  He's not the GOP's tool.  And to me, that's good news.   :)

So if they are not going to convince liberals to vote conservative, what exactly is their plan sir?  Are they hoping on getting more people to vote who have not previously voted?

I have just come to accept that like a lot of things in life this board will follow the 80 / 20 rule.

80% of the posts I'll understand, the other 20% is a lost cause  :D

Look, I love Paul too but he has no chance. At least with Cain he is closer to Paul than a lot of the other candidates. I mean would you rather have someone like Bachmann or Palin running the country? We could do a lot worse than Cain. I'm not sure we could do better at least in this election cycle.
paul while right on the numbers is a foreign policy nightmare....no ronnie, 9-11 was not our fault and yes ronnie iran armed with nukes is an  unacceptable risk for this nation....and no ronnie the killing of alwalki or whatever is not an impeachable offense and no ronnie we should not just trade with anyone and no ronnie green cards for illegals is not the answer and yes ronnie you did sound rather ridiculous stating that a fence on the southern border might be used to keep americans in and yes ronnie it is misleading at the least to state that the usa has her military stretched to 135 countries and further your willingness to take earmarks while attacking earmarks while slickly articulated is just that, slick.....but still he is damn spot on with regard to economics and limited govt.....no one out of the rep side will be perfect but even romney is better than what we have.....tried to warn people as to who and what obama is but few would listen.....obama is a reflection of our souls, our apathy, or addiction to govt largess and our embrace of moral relativism....by the way conley putting aside bachmann's inarticulate presentation of conservatism what would be so bad with either bachmann or palin as prez.....

I will discuss Bachmann and Palin later.

For now let me say that you are correct in that Paul has his issues especially with foreign policy, but as you yourself stated none of the candidates are without flaws. In my mind his insistence on a limited federal government is what sets him apart from all others and is really the key to the rest of the solutions. Immigration and other issues can be addressed without the Justice Department interfering as they currently do. I do not believe that any of the other candidates Bachmann and Palin included would take any steps to shrink DC significantly so in that sense I believe he is the best representation of what true conservatives stand for.

while our domestic situation is on the verge of collapse such a collapse while painful might provide the impetus for a constitutional renaissance, although even as i state this i am aware of the habit of man to seek solutions within govt in times of crisis this being what the left banks on.......still an emerging china an unchecked iran and growing islamic fascism present a future with ww3 implications......would have no problem voting for palin.....

A conservative candidate is going to have a number of issues to deal with.

Short list:

1)  The economy, jobs, foreign competition
2)  Spending - or areas where spending is sorely needed and areas where spending is hugely irresponsible
3)  Terrorism
4)  Healthcare reform

Just a short list although there are many other subplots to this story.

What the hell does Palin bring to the table to deal with these issues?  What experience does she have?  Governor of Alaska - might as well be a manager of 7/11, and she bailed out on Alaska in mid term.

Obama is a great divider, no big surprise here.  Palin is cut from that same cloth except on the other side of the spectrum.  She's the GOP version of Obama.  She brings little experience to the table, a lot of glam and rhetoric, the ability to whip the sheep into a frenzy but when it comes time to deliver - what is she going to deliver?  What leadership qualities does she have or has she demonstrated.

Palin = Obama, I would vote against her.  The POTUS needs a true conservative, not a poser.
