    With all this buzz about the Democrat's Candidates we are bombarded with, who are you supporting for the Republican Candidacy?

    Topics to keep in mind:

    Economy
    War on Terror
    Taxes
    Health Care
    State's Rights
    Individual Rights
    Property Rights

    Well, I am a registered democrat (though I have leaned closer to indie lately. I can't vote in the Republican primary, but if I could it would be for Huckabee.

    Frankly, none of the candidates on either side thrill me...so I'm conflicted at the moment on who I'd support.

    To be honest, none of the Republican candidates inspire me (I'm an Independent voter). Paul has some good ideas but he's in no way electable. Giuliani is a dirty, corrupt, power-mongering, opportunistic fascist and Romney isn't much better. McCain is toothless and ineffectual, especially within his own party, but I like the guy's personality. Huckabee has already been caught lying about his tax policies and he's a creationist so I really don't trust him to do what's right for the country. And Thompson isn't even a factor.

    I think the better question is who is actually considering to vote for a Republican in the Presidential election?

    Huckabee has a good stance on taxes, but his plus side ends there. Really, I like McCain, but the man doesn't stand a chance in hell. I'm scared of Romney and Giuliani absolutely terrifies me. I think I'm going to vote deomcrat on this one. So far I'm liking Biden, Richardson and Edwards. None of the republicans are doing it for me.

    And pretty much all of our past Presidents........if not all...most were.

    So why now this issue that a "creationist" can't be president??? That's just idiotic! :dry:

    There's a line in the Constitution that I hold dear: "The Rights of the individual shall not be infringed upon."
