    Can we resurrect Jefferson? Does the constitutional prohibition against running for more than two terms count if you've been reanimated?

    Seriously, the choices for presidential candidates seem to get worse and worse every year.

    Personally, I'd vote for Ron Paul if he ever made it past the primaries, but I seriously doubt he will. So I will either end up voting for Thompson, if he makes it, or whoever the Libertarians field.

    I didn't know how to answer, since there are no nominees yet. I put down Thompson for now, but my real answer would be ANYBODY but Julie Annie.

    Marshall,
    Nope. Just gauging public opinion and followin' trends. It's not hard to do if you're not blinded by your own kool-aid.
    I'm just lettin you know that if you think Thompson's novelty is enough to win him the general election, you've got another think comin'. He's really just a more-polished Dubya and in case you haven't noticed, the electorate doesn't think highly of neo-conservatism. Hillary will rip him to shreds.
    Unless you've got a candidate who can pull support from the left, I think you've already seen the precursor of the whuppin' that will be bestowed.

    "Hillary will rip him to shreds" Ha! That's a good one.:D Have you ever watched Hillary debate or try to do her talking points? There's a good, good, reason she hitched on to Bill "Slick" Clinton years ago. Fred will toy with her like a mouse before the kill. I pray for Hillary to be the Dem's nominee. Easiest for the GOP to beat. Most Democrats don't even like her.

    There is only one candidate qualified to lead this country...and it ain't Fred Thompson. I cannot believe he is leading this forum's poll. Too many TV-influenced watchers out there....

    I dont know where you are getting your information, but as far as I know Hillary has won every democratic presidential debate so far.

    Do not underestimate her, despite what you think of her politics, she is extremely intelligent and politically savy.

    How many people went through the **** she went through with her husband and then win a senate seat in a state she is not even from, despite never holding any office beforehand.

    Not to mention quite possibly the slickest politician of recent American history is her husband. The didnt call him "slick willy" for nothing.

    She has been named as one of the most influential lawyers in the country several times and was on the board of directors for numerous large corporations, including Wal-mart.

    If you think Thompson is going to just smirk his way through a debate with Hillary, the way Bush did with Kerry, you are sadly mistaken. Hillary would chew both Bush and Kerry up for breakfest in a debate.

    Now I think Thompson is an intelligent man and can hold his own against her, but in no way will it be a cake walk.

    She is owning Obama in the debates despite his seemingly rock star status.

    The worst thing anyone who wants to preserve their 2nd ammendment rights could do is underestimate Hillary Clinton

    Or you could understand what 'limits on Federal power' really means, even when you don't like it. You can't support limiting the Fed only when it runs against your personal interests.

    As I already said, Paul regularly introduces legislation to strip away gun control laws. Which of the other candidates do that? Oh, that's right... none of them.

    Wow, you sure showed me with that well thought out retort. Man, your right.

    You were the one who brought up the communist demon in this argument, not me. You said
    I'm pointing out that we just would have traded with them, just like we do with other communist countries, when it's in our interest to do so.

    How exactly would it make it easier for them? That is pure conjecture on your part. I think it would make it more difficult, because we're much further away. And no, the hardcore fundamentalists will never stop hating us, even if we 'win' in the middle east (whatever winning really is, since we are fighting an ideal - great way of fighting it is by proving them right, I guess). But what it will do is remove the support that the terrorists have from Joe Average. The only reason they have the power they have is because the people support them. Once they have no reason to hate us, the people don't want lunatics around them any more than we do.

    We are fighting a war against something we can never defeat. We want to defeat 'people who hate us', we better just start nuking everyone, just to cover our bases.


    So it's ok when we completely annihilate 2 cities full of, I don't know, millions in the name of war, simply because... it's our side! Gotcha.

    Justification is in the eye of the beholder. Of course it isn't justified from our point of view. And what, you want me to apologize because I point out we do just as much or even more killing of innocents in the name of our 'spread of freedom'? You think that's why Paul stands no chance? Man, you need to get out and meet some of your fellow Americans. You're living in a box.

    Really? Bin Laden's in Iraq? Or is it just some group that just took the same name... some group that only had the opportunity to form since we have been there. Some group that has the support of the people because they (the people) see us as the enemy.

    Did we now? Just because the place lay in shambles and the people were in shock does not make it 'wrapped up'.

    Where do you think they are getting their manpower? Many people were happy we took out Saddam, those same people are now part of the insurgency because we did not immediately leave. Or maybe they were lying in those interviews, what do I know.

    mmafan,
    A huge +1. Hillary Clinton was always the brains behind the "slick Willy" operation. That woman is smart, ambitious, and dangerous. People around here would do well to not underestimate her.

    The Republican party is already starting out with a huge disadvantage, and putting a new face on the same old policies will not cut it this time.

    TR,

    OK, we're the bad guys, they're the good guys. Nothing we do is good and what the terrorist do is justified. We're the problem not them. Vote RP, promote this agenda.

    Just curious as to why there's not more support on this board for Mike Huckabee? Here's his stance on the 2nd amendment from his website:

    http://www.explorehuckabee.com/index.cfm?FuseAction=Issues.View&Issue_ID=18

    He sounds pretty solid to me. Does everybody know something about him that I don't?

    Marshall,
    I must have missed the point where he suggested that the terrorists are the "good guys". Please show me.

    Too early.

    I'm not sure yet, and none impress me enough to claim I'll vote for them. Certainly not any of the Dems running, nor any of the RINOs running either.

    On the issue of "newbies" coming on board and voting for the obvious "antis" just to screw with the poll results... make it so that no member may vote in any poll who doesn't have a certain minimum number of posts to their credit, like 50 or even a 100. That might calm that crap down a bit.

    I have no idea. It is even remotely possible that the dems could field a candidate that is not a radical socialist, although the chance of that happening seems very remote.

    I watched Bill Richardson on Meet The Press and it really showed how sincere he is about gun rights. He's seen the light alright!
    The question that remains is whether he can garner enough support to beat Hillary, or whether he can even make it to being the VP selection where he can have an impact. :D
    As VP, at least he would have a deciding vote in the Senate. ;)
    Howard Dean holds the DNC Chair, maybe he'll have a pro-gun influence on the Dem's gun politics too.:rolleyes:
