    From a presidential candidate's website. Doesn't matter which one...yet.

    OK, it says "he", so we can rest assured it ain't Shrillary.

    Could you support this candidate based on this information?

    Not on those issues alone, no.

    What about the Major issues? (domestically)

    too bad he'll never get the nomination.

    but yeah, i'd vote for him. (i know who yer talking about...)

    and yeah i'd vote for him knowing just what you've posted, assuming no freakish surprises (i.e. turns out he's some sort of kiddie molester). why? he's obviously got strong libertarian leanings.

    He sounds okay on the surface, but the question is...what will he do? We already have a good idea of what he won't do from the first post...

    I love his politics. It's him that scares the bejeezus outta me.

    If I may, allow me to answer that with a question of my own.

    Consider the following names:

    George W. Bush
    Hillary Clinton
    Barack Obama
    John Edwards
    Al Gore
    Rudy Gulianni (sp?)

    In comparison, how much worse could he possibly be?

    What we been doing ain't working. Logic tells me that if something is repeatedly tried and repeatedly found wanting, it is the very definition of insanity to keep trying it, expecting a different outcome. Contrary to popular opinion, I am not insane. My efforts and the efforts of others to form a viable Confederate party have not produced palpable results yet. Until such time as they do, I must therefore opt for the best remaining alternative.

    (R) and (D) after someone's name means nothing anymore. It used to, but it doesn't now. They just lie out of different sides of their respective mouths. Since I cannot in good faith entrust the leadership of this country to such scalawags, I choose to find a different scalawag. I'll either vote for Paul, write in Jefferson Davis, or vote for one candidate solely on one issue, a hint of which I have discussed privately with catocom already. (And as an aside cat, that idea is gaining momentum believe it or not...)

    Unless and until someone of character, credibility, inspiration, and testicular fortitude emerges, we are merely picking our poison in 2008.

    Not much.

    Truer words have never been spoken.

    I keep saying it and saying it and finally someone notices I was right. ;)

    You say R & D. Most of us agree.

    I say conservative vs liberal. There is a difference.

    Better the enemy that you know than the enemy that you don't. The parts you initially posted sound fantastic, but what a person won't do is not a gauge for what a person will do. :shrug: As for the list of people you just posted, not a one is a person who I would vote for out-of-hand. Out of the above-crowd, even Nader seems a good choice.

    Good luck with that one. As long as there is a "popular" vote, the only people who are electable are the shysters, con-men, thieves, and idiots.

    Interesting that Nostradamus wrote a new book too. Anyone else having a problem figuring out how that really works?

    My mind is far from made up just yet. I'm just doing a little creative fact finding is all. Something to the tune of, "If you give the people what they say they want, will they take it?" kinda reasoning.

    And I say those definitions change from moment to moment and therefore are really meaningless. It makes no difference to the average citizen's well-being whether one or the other is in power and therefore there is functionally no difference.

    Ron Paul doesn't stand a Chinaman's chance in hell of getting the nomination, let alone the presidency.

    Neither does Shrillary but people keep talking about it.
