Perry? Romney? If either one of them liberal republicans get the nod, it wouldn't bother me at all to leave Obama sitting in the white house screwing us for another 4 years.
I say that, because it's my belief that the senate is going to change hands in 2012 due to the simple fact that there are twice as many Democratic seats up for grabs as there are Republican seats. That means that basically Obama is powerless for his last 4 years.

A persons scholastic intelligence, means little to nothing when it comes to the real world, Some of the wisest people I've know over my years, had no college education. A lot can be said for street smarts, and experience.
I'll take someone that say what means, stands up for what is right, and will fight against wrong no matter who is doing. Honesty, integrity, responsibility, and morality are just as important as intelligence. Sadly in todays society those things don't seem to mean much anymore. Instead we are more concerned that someone can lie articulately.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

It's funny how Ron Paul is kept as far away from mainstream as possible by the very people, that are in most cases, simply restating his fiscal values. Maybe he is not loud enough or confrontational enough. I am all for SS and maybe a very few well run programs, but I know who I will be voting for. I will not vote for pseudo-conservatives that tries to dictate religious doctrine, moral and social values; This is what I see in Perry, Bachmann, Palin....
Paul is the real deal. Let the states deal with what they are capable of dealing with. As worried as I am about our failing economy, I am more concerned about civil liberties. If free market economics work like some hope it does, it should level out the worldwide field enough to allow our recovery eventually (throwing money at buisiness hasn't worked and tax cuts will only alleviate part of the problem). With the continued erosion of our civil rights and the constitution (Patriot Act, etc), let's all think about which of the candidates has given even 5 minutes to something other than tax cuts and hatred towards science. To me, a candidate's history and previous performance seems more indicative of future performance than just following the trend. I just can't help but notice the efforts to keep Paul down.
