I have been told by some friends back home in Oklahoma that he is still very lucid! HA...seems funny just to argue this about somebody running for
Nevertheless, from my very humble opinion...and thats all it really is...Barack, if elected will be shut down the way they shut down Carter (at best)
or (at worst) he may be the new Jack Kennedy. (I hope not..I do like the fact that he is putting a new face on America for the world to see as a
result of his race for the Whitehouse)
Clintons, if they get a hold of this mess that Dick/Bush have created will basically carry on with the USA as it is. They will be far more savy about
it but they are great friends with the Bush family, long time partners in crime, as they say, with the same goals that Bush/Dick have, with a twist on
McCain, I have been told, hates Bush and family, hates the direction they are taking the country, sides with people in the military who hate the way
Bush has abused his powers and he may have a few surprises up his sleeve for the neocons.
For example, a peace lobby group known as Peace Action, which is a far left group, shows McCain with good support, equivelent to Clinton and many
other Democrats. Below is a voting record with issues in favour of
some very liberal causes.
AZ U.S. Senate Sr John McCain Republican 50
IL U.S. House 2 Jesse Jackson Democratic 64
IL U.S. Senate Jr Barack Obama Democratic 67
KS U.S. Senate Sr Samuel Brownback Republican 22
NY U.S. Senate Jr Hillary Clinton Democratic 56 "
You can see that, so far as this left wing group is concerned, McCain has supported them as much as or more then some Democrats. Almost all
Republicans voted "Nay" in regard to this group.
RON PAUL being the exception.."TX U.S. House 14 Ronald Paul Republican 93 "
If you study more of his voting record and compare it to a Neocon voting record you can observe his fortitude in protecting elements of freedom that
neocons find revolting.
Look at seperation of Church and State, pro choice etc.
In regards to his stint as a POW those are lessons that go much deeper then anything you read in a book. It creates a empathy toward those who suffer
and serve in the military, and those who suffer as a result of wars.
Empathy is lacking with Bush/Dick as a result of their coddled, silver spoon, pathetic lives. Those in the military see this and hate it. (so I have
Truth be told my veiws side with Ron Paul out and out but he does not stand a chance.
