Let it be known that I do not support McCain, and am disappointed with Huckabee's recent fall from grace. I really would vote Obama over McCain at this point.
You were a Huckabee supporter?

Yes. I liked that he was pure and didn't have a history of pandering (like McCain and Romney, who scares the hell out of me). Of course, he pigeonholed himself, so there's no way he gets on the ticket now.

The current President Bush has hammered the death nail on the GOP.

I talked to several of my friends today, who have voted Rebublican the past few years, but they are really upset at the direction of the party.

He ignored and trampled conservatives values concerning less government, personal freedoms, taxes, and on and on.

What a waste
How can a party, being the Republicans in this instance, talk about the importance of "personal freedoms" when they won't let certain people marry because of the gender of their partner? Isn't that ironic? And yeah I really do think...

Personally, he seems like a great guy. He's funny, down-to-earth, and just seems nice. But he wants to turn this country into a "Christian nation." As a Christian, that scares the shit out me.

I know what you mean. He seems like a great guy, until you find out what he stands for.

It's like, "Wow, what a cool guy, he seems ni - HE WANTS TO DO WHAT TO THE CONSTITUTION!?!?"

I did, and I don't disagree with the basic points of it. I was commenting more on the beliefs of your Republican friends who say they want more personal freedom yet often stand for taking them away, i.e. my original response to you. Sorry! I should've been more clear!

I think Huckabee is the most genuine person in this race. He genuinely believes all the insane things he says and for that I can respect him on some level.

But it doesn't make him any less nuts.

If he was my neighbor, I'd hope he'd invite me for over to a barbeque. I'm sure he truly is a genuinely nice guy. However, a presidential candidate who wants to elevate one group's beliefs/values over those of the common good doesn't belong leading our nation if we still follow that little document called The Constitution.

Holy crap, he is.


I don't even watch The Simpsons, and I get that reference. It's what those crazy friends of mine at college have done to me.

I don't think he's nuts at all. Then again, I'm conservative about 65% of the time, so I can understand why you would think both of us are nuts.

Now Ron Paul...he's nuts. Any party. Any time. Nuts.

It's not his conservatism as much as it's his wish to take back America for Jesus and to rewrite the Constitution to match God's word.

You don't think ammending the constitution to be more like the Bible is whacky?

Anybody who says we need to amend the Constitution to bring it in line with the Bible has a few screws loose in my opinion. It's outrageous to even suggest.

But on to funnier things...

Glenn Beck just hung up on Huckabee! He first flipped out when he had him on the phone, accusing him of being an unelectable spoiler for Romney, then he just had enough of him and hung up.

Hilarious!
