    Topic already going in GD forum:

    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum65/15517.html



    I think this is the greatest thing I've heard yet on this upcoming election. I know what ticket I'm about.......forget McCain, he is too old and too ill to make much of a difference, this lady will be the real power base in that presidency......and she is exactly the person we want in the office.......Paul/Palin would be great, but that's not going to happen, so McCain/Palin is a second best........McCain croaks in the 4 years he's in anyways, I bet you.......

    Dad told me about it this morning.

    Not only is she the things you mention, but she's an Alaskan governor that's for opening drilling in ANWAR. Dude... could he have chosen a better VP?!

    I think McCain made an excellent choice, although I wouldn't want McCain to croak during his term, This Gal is a ball of fire, and I feel she will be an awesome asset to Capitol Hill..



    Oh Yea, She is a hottie and I'd bet she could Kick some Billary Butt when the time comes.

    Not only is she a hottie, but she is sharp as a tack, tough as nails, and a great speaker. She is going to kick Biden's butt in the VP debate.

    I wonder if the Dems will even risk a VP debate. My money says Biden sticks his foot so far down his throat it'll be kicking his own butt from the inside.

    I couldn't be happier. I've been in a funk for a bit; usually a political junkie - but can barely stand to turn on the TV. Didn't even watch the DNC in Denver. This is a fantastic choice.

    Not that it really matters because the first name on the McCain/Palin ticket still disqualifies the whole thing, but does anyone know if Palin is a neocon or a real conservative? Is she "pro-constitution" like everyone else or a real Ron Paul style constitutionalist?

    Based on her short political career, it's easy to say (I'm afraid) that she's no Dr. Paul. Definitely got some neocon tendencies, even though she's done some good things.

    She shares his idealism with respect to her word is her bond... or at least it seems. She actually cut her own salary like she promised to do which is a breath of fresh air. But I am not convinced that she is all about the Constitution, even though she does seem to love it considerably moreso than any other politician currently in the runnings (major parties emphasised)

    I know two women from Wasilla and they're tough... one works in construction. You'd be surprised how many Alaskan transplants we get in WA.

    Actually, given we're the closest state to AK, this doesn't surprise me at all.

    I think it is the best choice he could have made.

    No question he's a master politician. The timing stole Obama's thunder nicely, too.

    Too bad what this country needs is a statesman...

    I wouldn't bet the house on this. Biden has been around a long time and knows the ropes, the political game, the little nuances, and will be a formidable debater against Palin. Let's hope she's well prepared because I think they go at each other this coming Tuesday.

    She's also got some Washington roots, with a couple of aunts living in the Tri-Cities. Here's hoping for a campaign stop.

    Indeed. I remain steadfastly unimpressed.

    Ron Paul is sharp as a tack, would eat Obama / McCain alive in any debate, and in good health. Ron Paul is also a true statesman, IMHO.

    It's just a shame that the VP has as much power as the queen of england.

    I'm still not voting for Mccain. Ever heard the saying "you can't polish a ****"?

    Since my first presidential vote for Ford, I have only voted for one - Reagan. All other votes were against the worse choice. I have also voted my conscience, which got us Clinton (thus Ginsburg in 1993 and untold number of federal judiciary appointments). When everything stinks, it boils down to which one stinks the least and can do the least amount of long-term damage to our country. I have only regretted one presidential vote. I should have held my nose and voted for Bush41.

    I embrace many, if not most, of the libertarian ideals. I admire the passion that the Paul supporters have. Perhaps you will be more at peace with your decision fifteen years down the road than I was.

    As a reminder, the slag of SCOTUS is:
    Age on Jan 20 2009 2013
    Stevens 88.8 92.8
    Ginsburg 75.9 79.9
    Breyer 70.4 74.4
    Souter 69.3 73.3

    Ron Paul is nuttier than a fruit cake. Yeah he has some good ideas but on foriegn policy he is just plain nutso. I'll give you this: I'd vote for him over Ubama but I would also vote for Palin's Down Syndrome kid over Ubama.

    I too have to raise the "WTF was he thinking flag."

    I get it that he didn't want to piss off the religious right base, but I don't think it is doing a lot to draw people to his campaign.

    The economy is a prime concern to many voters and I don't see her adding anything to McCain's ticket.

    I see much larger issues looming like the an iceberg in the North Atlantic and unfortunately nobody is addressing them (except for Dr. Paul):

    National debt is going to run past 10T

    SS is on life support

    Medicare is paying out more than it is taking in RIGHT NOW.

    Inflation out of control

    The housing market in the morgue

    Fannie and Freddie about to be taken over

    Banks failing across the country

    Given the Heller ruling, I wouldn't be super concerned about anyone in congress rushing to push any new gun control legislation.

    I majored in economics, and I am TERRIFIED.
