    Tested? Irrelevant.

    You should vote for politicians based on their positions on issues.

    Not by how long they have been in politics.
    So you agree with Rand Paul's issues but not Sarah Palin's.....what are the main differences?

    Plenty.

    Is she for massive defense cuts, bringing all the troops home immediately, closing Gitmo immediately, ending the nonsensical 'war on terror', a return to the gold standard, leaving Iran alone militarily, immediately balancing the budget, ending the Fed, leaving illegal drugs and same sex marriage to the states to decide?

    A few of the above are Ron Paul positions that may not be Rand's...but they should be since they are correct policies for a better America.

    Plus she is clearly not intelligent or knowledgable and is clearly arrogant.

    Maybe she is ignorant and you're just the kind of genius to expose that, after all, a small military is awesome for a country's well being! And gay marriage, shouldn't individual states settle that?

    I changed my post on state's rights.



    If America cut her military expenditure in half it would still be more then double the next biggest in the world.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...y_expenditures

    Largest in the world by 100% is 'small' to you?



    Noted.

    Talk to me when you are more reasonable on this...life is too short.

    Besides, this way off topic.


    Have a nice day.

    Well, off the top of my head I can only name the straw that broke the camel's back.

    Before getting the GOP nom McCain -- " We don't need to drill in ANWR, that isn't a necessity at this time we have other options, other technologies to explore, etc., etc,..."

    After getting the GOP nom McCain -- " Drill baby Drill, Drill hard, Drill fast, Drill everywhere, DRILL DRILL DRILL!!!!"

    Biden served for about 36 years in the Senate, was chairman of the senate committee on the judiciary, chairman of the international narcotics control caucus and was chairman of the senate committee on foreign affairs.

    Now Biden might be a long winded, experienced, foot in mouth, know it all kind of a guy with political positions in the liberal category , but I would still prefer that to an inexperienced, foot in mouth, one liner, mama bear kind of a person with political views that are way too conservative to appeal to most voters.
    Biden, will become the next President,if Hillary, doesn't run for POTUS! Y'all get ready it's going to happen!

    I think Senator McCain does his best to be a man of honor in a nest of serpents, it is a tad easier for him as he has a butt load through his second marriage- his divorce was not honorable but no one is perfect.

    I do believe his loss first in the primary to BushII and then when running after the train wreck BushII left has changed him. he seems more peevish, i believe he feels betrayed and where ever he can lash out he does. I don't think he would be using Hagel to extort more information from the Obama Administration IF Hagel hadn't been a maverick and gone against his party during the Iraq mess.

    Will be interesting to see if McCain gets over his sense of betrayal anytime soon.
