    Ron Paul doesn't have a chance, but he sure is cute, just like a little kid. I mean look at him. He's adorable. Like a little elf.

    I'm happy McCain got the nomination. Huckabee was a religious nut. Or I shouldn't say better, but rather least worst. He still horrible. He supported leaving gay marriage issues up to the states, yet also supported to ban it in his home state. He also does not support civil unions. I mean even other republicans support civil unions, but he doesn't. That's pretty bad. He also supports Don't Ask Don't Tell, citing that it's working. How can he say it's working when there's not anything to work or fail with that program in the first place? That's like saying "My breakfast isn't working." I think our soldiers are secure enough with their own sexuality to coexist, and even befriend, gays in the military. Or maybe McCain doesn't give them enough credit. He also doesn't support RVW. He also does not support Gvmt. funding for birth control and sex education, just abstinence. Got news for ya, abstinence isn't a realistic option because teenagers like to have sex, and they should know about birth control (although how they don't already know about it is beyond me. Their parents, as well as public schools, should inform them.)

    He does support stem cell research, so that's good. Doesn't really make up for his homophobia and lack of caring for women's rights, though. And don't get me wrong, Obama doesn't support gay marriage, either. No, instead he supports Civil Unions, which are separate but equal, and as an educated man with common sense, and especially a black man, I'm astonished that he would support anything that's separate but equal. Then again, he does support the decriminalization (one step closer to legalization!) of Marijuana (which would make in legal De facto, and we all know it) , and that's an issue very important to me. Almost important as the gay marriage, abortion, and stem cell research issues. Why alcohol, which can be dangerous and addictive, is legal, yet MJ, which can never, ever kill or develop a physical addiction (since anything, including shopping, gambling, and sex can develop a psychological addiction to predisposed individuals) is not, is beyond me. He also supports the latter two in the previous sentence.Ditto with Clinton, but unfortunately she does not support decriminalization of Marijuana. She does, as anyone with common sense would, support medical MJ and would end raids. She does not support keeping flag burning legal, and her bill would include one year in jail and a fine of 100 grand. That is absurd. That's just ridiculous. I mean...... that's really, really excessive.


    So no one is perfect, but Obama OR Hillary would be great choices. I'd be very proud to have either as a president, and it would make me support our government once again. I do, however, FIRMLY believe that gay marriage and pot will be legalized in my lifetime. I'm going to smoke at my wedding, and you're all invited! We'll use the Liberty Bong!

    Clint.............i honestly dont think Ron Paul will win.....however i want him to run so ppl can vote for himcause this will cause very interesting ripples through both parties. in all reality McCain isnt a republican he is a democrat, so in my mind i really dont give a flip which wins.....all three will yank my guns away just as fast as the other........actually really hope McCain doesnt win cause that just going to cause serious changes to the republican party making it extreamly similar to the current democratic party. at which time what is the point of two parties?

    i dont want Ron Paul on the ballot cause i think he will win, i want him on the ballot cause of the changes its likely going to make for the better in this countries politcal system in future elections due to the shock it should give both parties...........that there is a significant portion of the US populace that are sick of both parties......and this portion is likely to grow before it shrinks........its not a majority yet......but it very well could be in the next 10-12 years

    How can you call him a democrat? Did you read my post? Lol. Maybe when it comes to fiscal policies, but in all honesty, I could care less about fiscal policies of politicians (I almost exclusively care about social issues ) so I don't keep up to date with his policies on that.

    but it all ties together Clint........your willing to elect someone because their social issue views match your own but refuse to look at financial issues to see if they are going to spend like there is no tomorrow like Bush and f'up this country as a whole........if your looking at the president in order to get your social issues through that you want you are really confused about our government process..........you should care less about who is running for president and more about who is running for congress......congress has more power than the president when it comes to all this.............

    Well, the truth is I don't really care. Bush did go crazy spending: on the war (which would have been an issue I cared about) As far as fiscal issues, if I hear one of the candidates say something, I'll think "Well, that's good." or "Well, that's bad." but it doesn't influence my vote at all. I'm almost exclusively interested in social issues, and there's no way I'd vote for someone who has thrifty fiscal policies, but who's social values don't match my own. In other words, a Republican.

    Only case scenario I could ever vote for a republican was if they promised to legalize (federally ) gay marriage and/or MJ. I don't ever see a republican doing that. I could see myself voting for a third party, if I ever thought they had a chance in hell of winning, and that's something else I don't see happening in our two party system. Not that I'm complaining about our two party system; doesn't bother me.

    with any of the top 3 candidates i dont see fiscal responsibility getting any better.......on social issues you are much better off looking at your senators and representatives, as well as getting stuff passed through the state and make sure you have a governor willing to go toe to toe with the feds on states rights...............for what your looking for Clint you really shouldnt be looking at the president........you should look at your state........

    Every candidate claims to want to spend spend spend, but that is because everyone is asking for money and candidates tell them what they want to hear, because if they are honest (McCain admitted the car jobs were not coming back to Michigan and Detroit when he campaigned there, and Romney said they could come back. Guess who won) they dont get very far. Talk is cheap, the only way to really see how they do is if they are in office.

    *rolls dice*
