Title: Ok, I know its early but who do you support on the Republican side
Post by: Tamet Gould on September 14, 2011, 11:09:02 AM
I watched the first debate on youtube and matched a bunch of the 2nd one on youtube.   I'm leaning towards Ron Paul, simply because we need a hard core conservative.  There are some things I don't like about him but the likes out weigh the dislikes which put him first in my scale right now.   I like Michelle B too, in my book she is running a hard second.   And I kinda like Herman too.  Newt he gets to the bottom of things fast, love that about him, but he is carrying around way to much negative history.   Perry, Romney and the others are low men on totum pole for me, what about yall?

Ok, here goes in random order!!
Ron Paul is a Liberterian, not a conservative.  He is just messing up the mix so that the Demos can have more power than we want!!  He will bring all of the soldiers home from everywhere and defund military quicker than you can blink.  he does not believe in having soliders period.  Really!?!?!?
Like Bachman a lot, but don't think America is ready for a Christian woman pres.  She is smart and really can get things done.  perhaps VP?
Perry stinks as a gov. why would he not do the same as pres?  he started off as a conservative but his ego is getting bigger and bigger.
Hermain Cain is good at turning things around.  A solid businessman, we sure could use some help in that direction.  But can he get elected?
Romney, a republican Obama.
Can't remeber any one else off the top of my head.  Geeze this is enough to get me smacked soundly upside the head from all the readers anyhows!!!  lol
