    I'm glad for Ron Paul as he would make a better President then John McCain. I may not agree with Ron Paul on every issue but at least he is more on the ball then John McCain, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson. I hope Ron Paul gets the Republican nomination because then it wouldn't be that bad to have a Republican President if he should win.

    Sorry... someone who doesn't believe in evolution isn't "on the ball".

    Hmm, I thought in the republican debate, Ron Paul didn't raise his hand when they asked who doesn't believe in evolution. Tancredo, Huckabee & Brownback did.

    You mentioning the founding fathers in your sig, and then denouncing Ron Paul in this thread, flies in the face of respecting them to begin with.

    Ron Paul is the closest candidate to the founding fathers as you will get.

    He models himself after them, and makes no political decision that doesn't agree with their views and vision for America.

    If someone's belief about evolution will make or break you voting for them, then you have no business voting, or even being involved in politics to begin with.

    How does a view on evolution have anything to do with the type of leader someone could be for a country? You were wrong about him anyway, but it still begs the question...

    Take Ghandi for instance...the man was a genious. He organized a population to fight for, and win their freedom, without ever firing a single shot, or throwing a single stone. He's a legend. Where would his view on the subject of evolution have anything to do with what the man achieved for a people?

    The only thing that should matter when choosing a candidate is, how are they going to make the lives of the American people the best that they could possibly be, while abiding by the consitution that granted Americans their particular lives to begin with. Believing in, or not believing in evolution, has no impact on how someone votes on congressional legislation...it has no impact on whether or not a specific candidate would actually end the war like they might say they will...it has no impact on whether they might choose to raise or lower, or even END, taxes. It has no impact on whether a candidate might decide to work toward providing all Americans with universal health care...

    Do you even know enough about Ron Paul to make a decision about him? Or is the evolution issue your deal breaker?

    Even though you were wrong, anyway.

    You do not get to select the ideas anyone uses as criteria to vote.

    Some many consider that a person who can ignore the vast preponderance of evidence, and does not believe in biochemical evolution, should not be trusted to lead the United States. Anyway, while there are plenty of reasons to not vote for Ron Paul, his disbelief in evolution is not one of them. As someone pointed out above, it is Huckabee, Brownback, and Tancredo that raised their hands during the first Republican Presidential Debate to indicate that they did not believe in evolution. Paul is a physician and highly educated in biology. He agrees that evolution exists.

    But on another topic, Paul thinks if we hide behind American borders we will be safe from the world. Nothing could be further from the truth. And that is the reason why he should not be President. Paul thinks it is our foreign policy that brought on the 911 attacks. Paul blames the victims for the attack of their murderers. Contrary to what that lunatic bin Laden believes, If Saudi Arabia invites American troops onto the Arabian Peninsula, maniac terrorists do not get to say otherwise.

    He's been through for a couple of months. His illegal immigration stance killed what little hope he had left.

    Ron Paul does not blame the victims of 9/11, he blames bad foreign policy, particularly our government's actions since the first gulf war. He's merely repeating the conclusions of the 9/11 comission report (which Giulianni apparently didn't read), and the head of the Bin Laden CIA unit agrees with him 100%.

    And the corrupt government of Arabia may have invited us, but that doesn't mean it was a good idea. It's not like the Saudi royals are popular amongst their own people.
