He did do very well in the debates. He's a nice guy, very funny. However, some of his policies are a bit questionable. I heard that he wanted in-state tuition for illegal immigrants, for example.
I think General Petraeus would be a perfect candidate. A strong military leader to bring the country back to where it is supposed to be.
What do you all think about General Petraeus? Would he make a good candidate?
I agree that we should look into forming a third party, but there are already a lot of small alternative parties out there. We can't just splinter off into tons of tiny factions, or else we won't get anything done. What we have to do is somehow form a large unified party, and maybe look into bringing the others, such as the Constitution Party (?) under our wing.
I read that in Russia, they actually used to have "None of the Above" on the ballot. Then one year, "None of the Above" got the majority and they took it off the ballot.
I would certainly be happy with Ron Paul. I don't know much about Ventura at all. Palin and Romney would be great cabinet picks, but I'm not too sure about Huckabee. He's a great speaker and everything, but I heard he favored giving illegals in-state tuition.
.....I was not speaking out against religion. I am a Christian. I was simply saying that everyone recognizes that religion is very important in politics, and that even the liberals acknowledge the importance of religion and try to appear very religious. For example, Biden was filmed at his parish for something, even though I doubt he is all that religious. I was calling out the liberals for faking faith.
I was for Tancredo or Paul, myself, but decided to support Romney as a more viable candidate.
I was generalizing. At my school, the vast majority of evangelicals and their families said very disturbing things about Mormons and Romney in particular, regardless of whether they were from the south, the northwest, foreign countries, etc. There were, of course, some that overlooked Romney's religion and supported him. I'm just saying that with some people, it is an issue.
I think Glenn might have the same problem as Mitt Romney, because he is a Mormon as well. While I certainly would not object to either of the two, we can't ignore the widespread anti-Mormon sentiment.
