    When you add in this, with Huckabee's new found position on repealing the IRS which he never had before, and the birthright citizenship issue which is being reported as HIS original position that "no one else is talking about", and you have yourself a copy-cat folks.

    Is that what you want as president? Someone who doesn't have original ideas, and instead takes them from another candidate that he sees is getting support for it?

    Come on.

    Well, I wouldn't expect him to actually do anything about those ideas, but at least he's paying lip service instead of flatly ignoring it.

    I think inflation is going to start creeping into the political discussion here pretty soon. The money supply is expanding at 16%. People are going to find out that reckless spending doesn't just effect their children, it effects their pocketbook here and now, via inflation. People are going to want answers, and there have been no mainstream candidates talking about inflation.

    The democrats would be especially smart to a least start mentioning the word inflation. For one thing, a democrat will probably be elected, and inherit inflation. They will get the blame for inflation, even though the root cause started before they were elected. Secondly, republicans portray themselves as limited government, low tax. That's not true. Democrats should start painting them as big government, hidden tax. Not that they're against big government, obviously.
