Google Ron Paul.

Yes. We have googled Ron Paul and found out he consorts with the worst bigots and lunatics there are. Please go back to your KoolAid.

Back to the discussion at hand.

I agree - Obama is a decent man. I can understand why he'd inspire someone like Caroline Kennedy.

The biggest problem is, Obama has NO clue what to do about the world outside the United States (leaving alone inside for now). That ignorance did not plague JFK. He actually fought in a war meant to protect us from evil "over there" so it wouldn't cross the ocean to "over here". I think he had very few illusions about the world stage.

And then we get to domestic stuff. JFK LOWERED taxes. And he did a few other things no democrat in their wrong minds would ever consider.

He inspired people to look at their own efforts to make this country great, not to rely on government.

It's totally correct to admire JFK in spite of his personal inadequacies.

Obama is too naive, albeit well intentioned.

And you know what they say about good intentions.

To tell you the truth, Rick, I'm not altogether sure that (if I was a citizen of the US) I would vote for Obama. I agree with everything people have said about his ability to inspire, and as a person who leans to the left politically, I obviously don't have the disagreements you have with his political views, but I take your point about his lack of experience.

Part of the problem, I think, is that we all seem to want our political leaders to be the Messiah. We keep hoping that this one will be different - that this one will turn out not to have the feet of clay the others had. Truth be told, I keep thinking about a verse from the psalms (I know it in the Coverdale version from the 1662 English Prayer Book): 'O put not your trust in princes, nor in any child of man: for there is no help in them' (Ps. 146:3).

Don't get me wrong; I'm not saying voting is either wrong or a waste of time. I just think it's not wise to hope for too much, from either side of the political spectrum.

My rather gloomy two cents' worth, for a Sunday evening!

Sometimes it takes a while to recognize that someone has a special ability to get us to believe in ourselves, to tie that belief to our highest ideals and imagine that together we can do great things.
:
I believe I have found the man who could be that president — not just for me, but for a new generation of Americans.

The new generation of Americans is a lot smarter than the folks who voted for Caroline's father. At least they believe in the electorate telling the leaders what to do, instead of the other way 'round.

I suspect that's why the Kool-Aid drinker told us to "google Ron Paul." Neither Obama nor Paul actually stand for much of anything once you start to inspect issues on a one-by-one basis. But at least each one of those two is deeply committed to his respective side of this debate, or rather, is supposed to be. Paul says government has a duty to leave people alone, Obama's supporters say it has a duty to tell us what our enthusiasm is supposed to be from one minute to the next.

I think Paul's a crackpot, but I support his vision a zillion and one percent over Obama's. The idea of my political leaders assuming a role where they're supposed to tell us what excites us, what our hopes and fears are supposed to be...that is just frightening. Anyone who isn't chilled to the bone by that, is brain damaged.

But I guess when people haven't matured to the extent that they can form their own opinions independently, they get mean and nasty and controlling when they catch wind of others who have.

Mommynator,

I haven't drank KoolAid in over 40 years, but I have met a few rude people such as yourself.

If you would watch some of Ron Paul's YouTube videos with an open mind and not believe what you've been told to believe, then you might be nicer to people who have watched them. You might even stop the name calling and bigotry.

Try this one... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bse1Xax07ec


No thanks.

I have watched Mr. Paul and listened to him.

Mixed in with some good ideas is sheer poison to this country.

Any man who is not willing to defend his country is a traitor and not worthy of the country that is defending him.

Not to mention the fact that you have completely ignored and/or glossed over the Nazis in his life.

Billy G.

There are only 2 candidates that have served in in the military. Guess who was one of them?

You are showing your own ignorance by that comment and calling someone like Congressman Paul a traitor. (By the way, I'm retired from the military so I do not want to hear your mouth running about patriotism.)

Besides your lack of googling skills you don't seem to grasp that during elections rumors and mudslinging abound, but believe such reputable and unbiased sources like "The Huffington Press" and "New Republic" if you want to.

Ignorance is bliss.

If you don't think that Obama, Hillary, or any other candidates don't have nazis, bigots, racists, fascists, socialists or whatever voting for them then you need to grow up and open your eyes.

If you are so poor at googling ,then simply picture your favorite candidate in your little mind while standing in front of a mirror with your little eyes closed...

Are you there yet?

Okay now open them and look at the bigot that is voting for your candidate.

Frightening, isn't it?

OK sweetie,now run on back to your computer and check out these links...

I'd tell you to think about it but thinking doesn't seem to work well for you.

Have a nice life, Princess...
