    about this Administration who is your candidate and what do you feel needs to be done to advance that candidate.

    Myself I’m pretty much an Independent and this administration perhaps not surprising is IMO the most incompetent our nation has seen in a very long time the previous administration wasn’t much better. In fact this administration frankly scares the hell out me simply because it has an agenda that has nothing at all to do with our Nations wellbeing.

    As far as a candidate goes there isn’t one whom I am ready to give a blessing. I would like a straight up Moderate Constitutionalists but they seem to be in extremely short supply.

    What say you?

    Porblem is that most of the Independents and libertarians lean heavially right.

    Well that's just it. My ideal candidate would be somebody who is economically right, fiscally conservative, an advocate of a lesser role of government in people's lives, a lesser military role worldwide, and socially liberal. However, what you tend to get is that they are either all right or all left on all issues and that is because the primary voters expect all or nothing.

    I'm a hardcore fiscal conservative, and a live and let live social liberal.

    The best thing this prez can do is not run 2012 and give his blessing to Ron Paul.


    Here's the decision making process of the american bureacrat;

    "Do I do what's best for the middle class that I can manipulate on the campaign trail, or do I do what the oil/healthcare/bank/drug industries want me to do and they'll line my pockets?"


    It's pretty easy to see the choice the they make.
