    I'm hoping for a Conservative or Libertarian to get in office.

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.

    conservative or libertarian? that's kind of a big difference these days. that's like saying you support $1Trillion a year global defense network and you don't at the same time. are you brave enough to protect just the US and not bring the war to all the other nations on the planet? come on, join us, say no to the global war on individuality.
    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

    The ideal of individual liberty is solely a Western concept. As the power and influence of the West declines in the world, the attraction of Western ideals will also decline.

    To a point I am. Granted conservatives do like their National Defense but I'm willing to see a Libertarian cut back, close bases and bring 50% of the boys home --- I don't think, in the best of circumstances in 8 years, a Libertarian President could dream of better.... but I also support going back to a Constitutional use of military power again. There's some problems with that especially around terrorism and threats but I could certainly live with and agree more with a Libertarian than I can another Obama. Hell, I'll even take a JFK Democrat instead of these Progressives....

    When Carter was in office the despots expanded their reign about the world. I think the following sums it up well.
    Carter told an audience at the University of Notre Dame in 1977 that is was time for Americans to get over "our inordinate fear of Communism." But all too soon, Carter was desperately trying to shore up collapsing alliances around the world.

    In 1979, after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, and after he had fecklessly allowed the Shah of Iran to be overthrown by the mad mullahs who remain in power to this day, Carter scrambled to stop the Communist juggernaut. More people in Africa and Latin America lost their freedom on Jimmy Carter's watch than under any other American president.

    The Left's idiocy during GW II, and Obama's weakness only invites people losing their freedoms. I mean how damn stupid do you have to be to say your will sit down with NK and Iran without preconditions?

    Think if the protesters stood for the despot to fall in Iraq? Or came out worldwide to protest against Iran, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas?

    Reagan rolled back the Evil Empire, and after he left they fell. People mocked him for standing up to the despots, and ridiculing them.

    The actions of the Left do not happen in a vacuum. Vietnam illustrated that too. We won the Tet Offensive, the press reports it as a loss, and our enemies find strength through the protesters, knowing it will weaken the resolve of the country.

    Despots take over and kill millions.

    These two sentences contradict each other. If Hussein was a despot, Reagan didn't do jack **** to decrease despots. He helped them.
