    Its good he dropped out. He just wasn't effective. I don't disagree with his view point at times - I think he's got a good message but just not President material.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If you actually bothered to listen to what he said, and not jsut regurgitating the DNC talking points... You'd know he was lambasting Washington's ways, and not actually suggesting seceding.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    He said he wasnt ruling it out and succession may happen in the future if the govt didnt change its ways....now how you want to take that is up to whoever reads it...it doesnt sound like he was advocating succession to me

    That's too bad about Pawlenty but not surprising. At some points in the debate he really helped himself in my eyes, in other point she looked like the small dog barking a ton to try and get attention with his consistent attempts to attack Obama.

    So we're back to just 3 with executive experience.
