truthfully, i'm not down for most of the dipshits on the panel.

or most of the modern republicans, but i am down for a guy

who votes "no" to a raise every time they bring it up.

 

he also drives an economy car, which lets me know that he cares

about where our money is spent and doesn't give two shits

about a new jag on the american peoples bill.

 

ABOLISH THE FED!

Well, Alan Greenspan did more to stimulate the economy and keep money in my pocket than any of the Presidents of the last 20 years so I'm not gonna be able to agree w/ you there but...

 

that's another argyment.

 

The debate is going to be covered on MSNBC, which is a tacit way of saying that the NBC Thursday night line up will go forward untouched. Thank GOD that Joe Lunchbox won't miss My Name is Earl!

 

The whole 'cable coverage' issue just smacks of the elitism that plagues both parties these days. The FCC is all about making sure the average citizen glimpses nary a tit on network TV but leaves the most important issues facing our nation to cable coverage? Of course the networks are going to sluff it off on the cable news channels because they say the ratings are low when they cover debates or the state of the union... it's like letting a candy company plan dinner. "But the children don't want beef and broccoli, they wan't ice cream!"

 

Sometimes you just gotta eat your veggies and until I hear a single elected official echo that sentiment I'm convinced that debates (both party) are just an elitist circle jerk.

 

I'll try to find it on the radio but probably I'll just watch Survivor.

or you could be online at politico.com and see it streaming.

 

do you know why it's on cable? because people care more about american idol than they do about voting for any leaders.

 

it does stay elitist. you're 110% correct, but you can't blame them. i'm looked at funny for saying something intelligent. i'm not that smart. but i get funny looks for bringing up important issues or just making an observation using more than one word like, "cool" or "damn".

Got my Ron Paul bumper stickers in the mail a few days ago (never once sported a bumper sticker for a prez. until now)... switched from the dem to the rebulican party about a month ago because of Ron... Got his picture on my myspace and definitely tryin' to spread the word about this guy. He's got a large following of people that don't rely on mainstream television to get information about politicians. As far as i'm concerned this guy is a dream come true for any American's life, liberty and the persuit of happiness.

Ron Paul Wins MSNBC Debate Poll

Ron Paul steps into national spotlight

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 4, 2007

 

ARLINGTON, VA – Congressman Ron Paul finished first in the MSNBC poll following the GOP primary debate last night held at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California. Dr. Paul received 43 percent, beating the second-place finisher by five points, and crushing the rest of the field.

 

"Last night, Americans met Ron Paul and loved what they heard," said Ron Paul 2008 campaign chairman Kent Snyder. "Dr. Paul's message of freedom and limited government resonates with Republicans hungry for a return to their party’s core values."

 

"Ron Paul is the only true conservative in the GOP race. Americans saw that last night," continued Snyder. "The campaign looks forward to further debates and opportunities so even more Americans will discover Dr. Paul's message of freedom, peace and prosperity."

my favorite part of all this is to hear a bunch of 'conservatives' call a traditional conservative/old right sort of guy a liberal.
