  1. For what it's worth, this is probably because McCain has never won the nomination. If he wins it this time, he'll have to defend himself on the Keating Five, if not the other issues.
  2. It's all about Tecmo Super Bowl... I still play it, even though you can tell how dated it is (by the fact that Don Majkowski is QBing for the Packers)
  3. Lighten up, Francis... Paul isn't going to win, so it's a waste of energy calling him a bad human being.
  4. Not my point... in fact, not my point at all. Outside of the Civil Rights Movement, when the majority of Republicans supported the passage of the Civil Rights Act, the Republican Party has really done little in the way of wooing African American voters. Not that I'm not a conservative or anything, but that's just the way it is. Appointing blacks into authority roles notwithstanding...
  5. Since when has the African American vote been important within the Republican Party? Please, inform me, for we all know that the Republican Party has done nary enough to attract the attention of minorities within this country. With that being said, Nevada's a big win for Romney, but Hillary's win is kinda empty, since the delegate totals for Obama and her are pretty much even.
  6. I can understand Buddha and OMF, amongst others, for believing what they do about Dr. Ron Paul. Frankly, his ideas are radical, and are not going to fly with everybody. But at least they use real, actual arguments and do enough to stray from totally bashing everything about the guy. Shoelace, I'm not in a position to tell you that you are out of line about Dr. Paul. You'll have whatever opinion of him that you have, and I understand that. But just because you may find his followers, and his positions for that matter, obscure and nutty, that doesn't make him a bad person. Period. For the lack of support that Ron Paul gets, I'm surprised people like you take as much time as you do using photoshop to discredit the guy. You're almost as bad as his followers, if you think of it like that.
  7. I wasn't talking about his viability... I was talking about how well versed or not he is on the economy...
  8. Huckabee pulls out a victory, with Democratic help (thinking he's the weakest candidate)
  9. You probably oughtta send that money to Giuliani... he's the one who needs money right now, not Ron Paul.
  10. I disagree... the money's already been spent.
  11. If he campaigned against placing earmarks on bills, I would agree that he's a hypocrite. But, in this case, as Shabba said, he's merely being a good representative. If they're going to spend the money, regardless of his vote, he might as well exercise his right to earmark. But that's just how I see it. I don't think he's doing anything wrong by earmarking.
  12. Thank you for proving my point. My point to IFC was that if he loses Michigan by a lot (which he most certainly will), it won't be because of the freaking racial newsletter. The newsletter will not matter enough to drop him from being close to the leaders.
  13. Just because you don't understand it doesn't mean he doesn't understand it. This debate, in regards to the effect of a weak dollar vs. strong dollar, is something which is a credible issue. Many economists in this country, myself included, have serious doubts as to the monetary policy that the United States exhibits. The truth is that the issue can't be boiled down to an answer of "it's more complicated than Ron Paul pretends it to be." Without going into the details, while I find myself in support of many of Ron Paul's policies, especially on the economic front, I acknowledge that his economics are extreme. After all, he's a disciple of Ludwig von Mises, whose considered by many too extremely Libertarian by most. I wouldn't doubt Ron Paul's education on this matter. He's well spoken and acknowledges that our extremely liberal spending is doing more harm for this country than good. For a Republican, at least he admits we spend too much... though some of his ideas are crazy, and you may not agree with them, at least do realize that he raises some very serious questions about the way we run our economy.
  14. The racial newsletter is irrelevant. It's been used multiple times in this campaign to discredit him, and it fails every time. If he loses, it'll be because people want a moron like John McCain to be POTUS.
