And yet he voted for the fence. It's strange because normally I applaud him for his consistency but on immigration he has not only given less than clear answers much of the time but also maybe even backtracked or changed his position.

Still, I maintain that while he has many problems which we can hammer at, at the end of the day he would be better than Cain, Romney, or dare I say it, another 4 years of Obama.

The current cast of clown does put us in a bind.

Yes, and it's like this every four years. If Paul ran as an independent in 2004 I expect he would have handed the election to Kerry, just like Perot did to Clinton and Nader did to Bush. I wonder if that is part of his lack of willingness to do so. If he ran independent I think he could well end up giving Obama the boost he needed.

To me the biggest threat to this country is internal, perhaps you and others see the danger as external. Our foreign policy has been so inconsistent and so ineffective for so long that I am not certain how it could become significantly worse.

I look at it like this:

I don't see Al Queda or Terrorists ever destroying this country.

Conversely, I do see out of control federal spending and a self-serving ever expanding Washington DC as a path to the end of our nation.

Naive? No. In some respects libertarianism is just crazy.

I can see where you would want a santorum and gingrich ticket,, that is almost a guaranteed win for that POS community organizer we currently have.

Santorum and Gingrich are everything that represent all that is wrong with the GOP.  Good ol' boy politics.  Same fucking shit, different serving.

I would not vote for a Santorum/Gingrich ticket. 

Many of the other GOP hopefuls yeah, I'm not excited about anyone at this point but Gingrich, Santorum, Palin - fucking SSDD.

anyone on the rep side and several not running can beat obama.....conservatism when clearly articulated is a winner even today......

To me the biggest threat to this country is internal, perhaps you and others see the danger as external. Our foreign policy has been so inconsistent and so ineffective for so long that I am not certain how it could become significantly worse.

I look at it like this:

I don't see Al Queda or Terrorists ever destroying this country.

Conversely, I do see out of control federal spending and a self-serving ever expanding Washington DC as a path to the end of our nation.

clearly the challenges at home and abroad are daunting and yet neither can be ignored.....the problem at home is not dc son it is we the people, we are culturally, morally, ethically, intellectually and spirtually bankrupt.....it is possible that a financial collapse could foster a renassaince....or usher in the dark ages......

Agreed. Unfortunately, DC is a reflection of who we are as a people.
