    Straw poll

    Who do you think is the best candidate for president? I had to leave off a couple options, so I guess write it in if you have one not on the list.

    Re: Straw poll

    All the straws are clogged with political BS and garbage, therefore I can't get any information through them.

    Can we throw away all the current straws and get new ones that actually work?

    I wish we could! Or put them on a lie detector like they do on that dating show.

    Re: Straw poll

    The more I read about Duncan Hunter, the more I like. Although he has a snowball's chance in hell of winning anything. Come caucus time, I will vote for whoever I agree the most with and whose ideas I like the most.

    Come general election time, I will vote for the lesser of 2 evils (because there is almost no chance a "career politician" does not get each nomination) most likely unless there is a legitimate 3rd party I like.

    I voted Fred Thompson because of his fiscal responsibility stance and he is not a career politician.

    Re: Straw poll

    what's really crazy is how much $$ the top candidates are going to raise and spend between now and november 2008, all just to sling their BS around the media outlets of the country....

    good luck to whoever inherits iraq, the war on terror, energy problems, healthcare, china, the environment, illegal immigration, and the country being as divided as ever.... I'm sure I left out some other pressing issues and will be raked over the coals for this one...


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    ...sounds like a great opportunity for someone, so long as they're actually willing to step up to the plate and be a leader.

    Really the most dire situations are the best for being remembered for doing great things.

    I was originally for Sam Brownback, then I read Mike Huckabee's book and became a huge fan of him... then I read Brownbacks book and am now rooting for both of them!

    Re: Straw poll

    Why is it so hip to make polls private around here? Half the fun is to see who all you idiots vote for. Damn near every poll at CF is private.

    Re: Straw poll

    As far as I'm concerned, Brownback, Huckabee, and Hunter are fairly interchangeable and I would proudly vote for any of them for President. Something tells me, however, that I won't have that option.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: Straw poll

    It is interesting how Hillary is viewed by the national media as the next president, but yet she can't even make the top five in our little unscientific poll. Is her candidacy really as strong as we are being led to believe?
