yeah, it's totally Barry's election to lose.

Sorry as that is, the reps. are not fielding anyone who can beat him.
And, with Hillary as V.P., she'll be strongly placed for the following election.
They're going to try for a "Reagan, Reagan, Bush" play...........

True about the Birches, but Simon, if you can take off your "iron" hate hat for a minute, point out where Webster is wrong about Ron Paul, too much work for you?

Maybe it's just me, but the fact that Ron Paul is "...a bad liar..." seems to me to be a good thing. What if he were a good liar like, oh I don't know, the current occupant of the White House?

Doesn't it seem strange how little coverage the press is giving him, considering how high he is on most polls?

Yeah, they guy who wants to banish the EPA (good bye clean air and water), have no restrictions on coal production or use, and close every military base overseas (incredibly bad idea). This guy doesn't scare the pants off of you?

I got no problem with ceasing "foreign entanglements" such as the wrongheaded Iraq war that got us in this debt crisis in the first place. Legalizing pot also would be great. And he stood up against imprisoning American citizens without charges, which will one day bite us all in the ass...

Of course, most of the other Libertarian ideas are not practical, but I applaud these issues being raised. Plus, he'd be sure to lose against our Commander in Chief, so I'd vote for Ron.

There's a difference between easing entanglements and closing our bases. I do not get the impression this is the man ho knows the difference.
Of course, as ex-Navy, Navy raised and born, I tend to hold to the ideals of "Sea Power" and the new global force for good propaganda. We do make a difference overseas, and sometimes it is a very good thing, not always a horrible idea such as Iraq.
This argument is as old as America, of course. Shores of Tripoli and all that.

Yeah, USNR, CARNG, et cetera, but that doesn't keep me from thinking for myself. :)
I think there's a point where we need to apply a cost-benefit analysis - more than a couple of lines in a marching song. If we are protecting the sea lanes, then there are a few shipping companies that need to pony up for our defense budget.

I wonder how many of those shipping lines prefer to flag their ships from some third-world country because it's cheaper? You can charge those double...
I'd like to see our country go back to (if it ever, in fact, did) protecting human rights and human dignity, not the bottom line.

I know this is a very fuzzy and radical idea, and I don't expect it to happen. I'd just prefer it.

the quagmire I can see with us protecting human rights, etc, is, well, some like the French, may point at us and invade.............

I like a radical approach, of not policing the world, and let 'em all see what happens, when we "withdraw" totally, from every where.
I know it won't, and even shouldn't happen, but, it'd be fun to see the world reaction, if they thought we would

I think I was thinking more in "refugee" mode, rather than striding across the world and remaking it in our image. Sorry, Emma, we don't want any huddlers.

It's pretty arrogant to assume that we can stride into Afghanistan and make them all play nice. Dare I count the empires that have failed in this regard? Does nobody read their history? :roll:

And I am not too versed about this recent Iran debacle, but wouldn't they be slitting their own throats by blocking Hormuz?

Hmmm, smoking conspiracy pipe... timed to coincide with the Iowa cockus. It's playing merry Hell with the Iranian economy just now, meaning someone is getting rich off it.

Why the hell do we need bases in Germany,Italy or Bulgaria? Are we going to go to war and take their sausage,cheese and whatever Bulgaria is famous for? Hell no. It is a waste of money to have these bases. Do they have bases here... nope. I am all for closing these bases that serve little to no use.

And nope does not scare me one bit. Guy who plays with dead baby and guy who can't take care of his daughter... those people scare me.

Our German base houses the largest US medical facility overseas. This is where every American service member wounded or ill in that hemisphere is sent, yes, even the ones from our ill considered wars in the Middle East. Even my mother, as the wife of a retiree, was sent there from Saudi Arabia when she went into a diabetic coma. Saved her life. Civilian care there would not be feasible or as efficient.

The Italian bases are where our forward deployed Naval ships are stationed, and we have a huge air base in Europe. We have shut down bases left and right overseas, returning the land to the host countries. I saw it first hand in Japan, bases I had worked at. The Cold War is over, but America is still a huge player in the global scene, and to think we can sit behind our borders and ignore the world is naive. It was naive in 1812.

The role of America in the world may need to be be redefined, but that role still includes the military, and our military can't operate without forward support bases.

Of course, I've voting for Obama, so I don't truly care who the loser will be.

Huntsman may not win the nomination, but he's a man with a lot of personal integrity.

Oh, and the whole "playing with the dead baby" thing... people grieve and deal with such losses in very individual and personal ways. It is none of my fucking business how that family handled their grief.

Unfortunately, Huntsman won't win the nomination. But he is hands down the best candidate in the Republican field and could restore honor back to the Republican Party. I think he'd stand the best chance of beating Obama in a National race too.
