    I believe he's a decent, honest man. I'd vote for him.

    I put him in my top three republicans. Ron Paul obviously being my #1 republican. McClintock and Keyes tied for 2nd.

    probably the only three republicans I would consider voting for that I am aware of right now.

    found some quotes by keyes that seem relevant to the current war in iraq. One of the few remaining excuses for the war is that we had to free to iraqi people.


    This one seems relevant to the PATRIOT act and the imprisonment of the 'illegal combatants'. It is often justified by claiming that the act and the imprisonment are questionable, but that the end result is the maybe some info to stop some possible future attack. In other words the ends justify the means.

    Alan Keyes election would be a boon to the Republicans. He would shift our party back to the right, and six years in the Senate would be enough to give him a voting record to match his publicity, making for a possible second run at the White House in 2012.

    That would be great... President Keyes. Of course WJ and Big D would have to figure out someone else to vote for.

    I thought you had to live in the state that you run for office in?

    You have to live there on election day. Remember Hillary Clintons run and Elizabeth Doles run for senate in NY and NC?
