    Ok so who's voting for who? It looks like in the GOP the 3 frontrunners now are: Paul, Gingrich, and Romney. On the otherside for the Democrats is Barack Obama. My vote is going to Paul, but who are you guys going to vote for?

    I am also leaning toward Paul. The only issue with doing that he isn't going to get enough votes to get elected. So it is almost like wasting a vote. I hope like hell I am wrong. Berry Soetoro can keep his "Hope" if I can keep my "Change".

    Honestly at this point I still dont know who to vote for.
    I definately do know it wont be for the one sitting in the oval office right now.
    Just when a candidate starts making sense and looks like a real possibility they do something stupid to shake your confidence.
    If the Republican party doesnt learn to get together and stop fighting each other their gonna give the election away and we'll be in for 4 more years of "hope it changes".

    Ron Paul. He's one of the few who walks the walk that he talks. Mostly.

    I generally label myself as a republican, but to be honest don't know enough about any of them right now to decide on just who. They all have a lot of policies that will benefit the country and my family so we'll see who gets the nomination. As far as demo-socialists go...It really burns me up that I am expected to go and kill myself day in day out at my job so someone can sit on their lazy butt and demand that I support them.(And yes there are some people who truly need support, but all the leechers have screwed it up for those who need and those who are paying in)
    The real issues are non-partisan though:
    Budget control- Until we get this under control it won't matter who is in the Oval office
    Insurance/Healthcare- Needs to be a bare basic free clinic available for those who can't afford the best (not free) health care. Those who can afford better than the free clinic are free to choose where to get there medical help...
    Immigration- Either enforce the law(Federal and State) OR amend the law so we aren't wasting tons of money on the entire immigration enforcement process. Policing the border and housing illegal immigrants in jail cells better than their own home(A/C, cable tv, internet, free health care, college education) costs us a ton of money...
    Education- We have to make education a priority, and hold our kids to a higher level, no more of this "no kid left behind" crap. We also need to emphasize teaching economics/financial responsibility to our future generations of politicians so they don't lead our country into a serious financial crisis like we are now.

    Just my opinions of course, not everyone will agree. I am hot-headed about anything that takes money out of my pocket. I apologize in advance if anyone is offended.

    @MoBilly I take no offense to your stance. This country needs more people that are not affraid to speak their political mind. It has been far to long that political correctness has been the norm. Because of that the population of this country is affraid to say Merry Christmas for fear of upsetting someone.
    My take on most of the points you had come back to one thing. You fix immigration you fix many of the other problems. Many people using our schools but paying nothing into them. Because they broke the law they spend time in our jails never having paid anything into the system (tax wise). Health Care is through the roof because the US Supreme Court ruled that hospital's cannot turn away ER patients for lack of insurance. So if you go to ER's at night many of them are full of people that are using the ER as their family doctor.
  8. I'm a TeaParty member for 3 years, I'll be voting for anyone but the jackas* thats in the White House now!! We need to clean house and start with ALL of Congress.

    The only way to fix the problem is to ban corporate campaign contributions. Politicians, like whores, are going to make sure their meal ticket is punched. They don't give a damn about the country, constitution or future. Get me a shovel, we need Reagan again!!!!!

    That's it exactly!! Wasting a vote even though Dr Paul would be the best prez imho. That's exactly what happend in 2008. Ron Paul siphoned off almost 10 million "conservative" votes & the Mombasi Prince Obama won the election by 5 million.
    MoBilly's also got it right. We need to close the frickin borders & keep the illegals out. They're the ones filling up the emergency rooms, the public schools (at taxpayers expense) & screwing up the economy. The only reason our liberal socialist Congressmen want them here is because they use them for cheap labor (nannys, yard maintenence, day workers) taking jobs:grrrrrr: away from legal American citizens

    We a screwed no matter who is is elected as president. Until we place TERM LIMITS on the congress and senate, nothing will ever change. We as people are stupid enough to keep re-electing these morons that are running this country. We need change alright. DO NOT RE-ELECT ANY INCUMBENT!!! Vote them all out and start fresh. We need leaders that get the concept of LESS SPENDING!!!! PERIOD!!!!!

    Yes sir we have AD, & I'll probably keep ranting untill we manage to get all the bleeding hearted, communist leaning liberal socialists dumbocrats, R.I.N.O.S., Marxists, politically correct hippie greenie Stalinists, the tax and spend & waste my tax money p.o.s. congressmen, & every last illegal alien out of political office & out of the country (including the presidency) :grrrrrr:

    Gosh! I missed that so much. LOL

    Hey Stephan, what do you think about Oregeon Legislature?
  18. stephan

    stephan New Member

    Ha, a trick question from Mr. Caddi. Actually I HATE THE MAJORITY OF THE OREGON LEGISLATURE JUST AS MUCH AS THE FEDS. Fortunately I live in the politically conservative portion of the state. 75-80% of the state geographically is politically conservative. Unfortunately the liberal socialists, commies, Marxists, welfare cases, gay mo fos, illegal aliens & all the other lazy people that want the government to support them & protect them from all their ills & frights, outnumber us in population & vote all the slime balls into office. Most of them live up the I-5 corridor (mostly from Eugene to Portland, but also in the south end of the state where I-5 comes into Or. through Ashland & Medford.) Widen & Merkly are the 2 worst. I don't remember where they're from but I guarantee you they were born & raised in a big city & babied by their mamas till they were 35 or so ha ha ha. Nothing else can make a better liberal socialist politico than a "mommas baby"
    BTW Charles, when are you going to learn how to spell OREGON right? Oregeon??? ha ha..In addition to the correct spelling, we will also accept Oregun, Origun, & Orygun. Also, you can call the liberals "Oregonians" but the rest of us prefer to be called "Oregunners" :)

    Kinda had all that pent up in there for the last few months huh? Its okay, let it out slowwwwwlllllyyyyyy. Hell I will worry about spelling it when there are enough people living there to realize I am a dumb-ass! LOL

    The Porsche was a once in a life time opportunity that you can't pass up. She is pretty much all stock with less than 75K on the clock. It was less then 15K when we got her in 92.
