    Fred sounds like a Reagan conservative

    Is there a downside to this somewhere?

    No wonder the liberal media are starting their attacks

    Fred Thompson warned the Nixon admin they were going to go after WH tapes during Watergate.

    He helped Nixon lie to America.

    is that all you got, Stephanie?

    It takes a little more than some stats on positions on abortion, animals, and agriculture to deem a person worthy of the office of President of the US.

    Why don't you post his voting record while in congress.

    I think the people should know where he stands on the legislation he's voted on. That's a little more important than how he feels about kitties and parenthood.

    With all due respect, of course.

    you don't make one post without throwing in something about liberals and dems, do you?

    You don't even know what conservatism and liberalism are.

    Stephanie, i already know his voting record. I scrutinize every candidate with a microscope. I guess what i was getting at, is do YOU know his record?

    Here's Ron's, since i support only him, and if i want people to support him, i want people to KNOW him.

    If it doesn't agree with the constitution, and benefit the PEOPLE FIRST, he doesn't vote yes.

    Can you say that about Fred?

    In all seriousness here...how much do you really know about the man you support? You have GOT to go farther than just what the news tells you. Please. This country can't afford another neo-con war monger in office, it will KILL us.

    There's nothing wrong with leaving countries alone. If somewhere down the road a country needs our support, then the people of the United States should have a say in whether or not we should offer it, especially militarily.

    Otherwise, we should stay out of their business, make sure our OWN borders are secure, and freely trade amongst friendly nations...if we are ever directly attacked by a nation. then by all means, we should defend ourselves.

    We've killed a million+ people since 9/11. What has it accomplished?

    Thompson is the kinda guy who would help Nixon in the middle of an investiagtion.

    It amazes me how anyone could consider him as a leader.

    Do you people like corruption in your government?
