    Really? So you're near me...watching me? How the **** do you know I didn't read it? Keep your assumptions and suppositions and hyperbole and idiotic statements to yourself. Come back if you actually have data to back your claim.

    No, the fact that the GOP cannot field a decent candidate OTHER than Paul is why Obama is likely a second term. If Obama gets elected because your side couldn't field someone better; that's your fault. I'll vote for Paul, I won't vote for any of your other candidates.

    Is it now? It seems that blind partisanship and deflection are your forte. You want to expand government, I don't agree with the expansion. I want to follow the Constitution, restrict government. If you have proof these people are terrorists, you can prove it in court. Ain't no problem to it.

    I got the perfect response for this.

    Foreign combatants waging acts of war, to kill American civilians, are not entitled to the same rights we afford our citizenry....
