Who Is going to be the next US President?Page 3 of 25    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25)
Rather sad about Colin. I think he had great presidential potential years ago but he made it clear he and his family did not want that office. Which puzzled me when he took Sec. of State. I had tons of respect for him and believed he brought much integrity to the EmperorShrub-DarthCheney administration. Until that is he reluctantly began to promote their misinformation. I understand he was a military man to the core and as such serious about following orders from his "superiors." Overall his actions are based on his decisions and for that he bears responsibility. He could have resigned much sooner than he did. Bottom line, Colin got in bed with those guys and made it his own for a while. Makes me think that overall he is/was more of a follower than a leader no matter how brillant his mind.

Wouldn't it be cool though if Obama got the office and appointed Colin as his Sec. of State? Haha! I would like to see that.

I think Edwards should pull out. I understand their decision to stay in the race eventhough his wife's illness has returned. Being familar with cancer and knowing that when it returns it is even more serious and life threatening, I could not, would not vote for him knowing that his wife's illness not only might but will be a major distraction. It's a catch22 for them. I know how important it is to try to continue and maintain as normal life while battling such a disease. I think that is what he/she/they are trying to do vs. trying to go for some sympathy vote as some suggest. But running for the highest office in the U.S. is anything but "normal." I wish them well and especially hope for his wife's recovery. That is where I believe his attention should be right now and for the forseeable future. Not in a highly stressful, time consuming presidential race. Sorry 'bout that John.

Were it not for this turn of events, if it came down to Hillary vs. John Edwards, I think John would get the votes. I serously hope no one votes for John out of sympathy. It's that kind of emotional voting and lack of serious intellectual consideration that got us/U.S. into the major messes we are in today. Beware... emotions are easiest to manipulate! King George, His Imperial Majesty, is Emperor today because Karl Rove and his team were the best at manipulating the public's emotions to get enough votes.

John Kerry lost his bid because he and his team were not the manipulators the opposition was. Intellectually, his team was the best for the country and that was what they were trying to focus on. They didn't want to join the grand manipulation game. They tried to be more serious and upfront and lost to an emotionally manipulated populace.

Sad times we live in. But we can help change these times. We can choose to be the change we want to see in the world first. We can choose to let our neighbors live their lives their way as long as it doesn't directly harm us or our family. We can choose to pay attention, ask questions, set our emotions aside and let our intellect and common sense decide which man, woman and/or team is best not only for us/U.S. but also for our neighbors that share this planet with us. After all, we are all in this, on this planet together. We might as well get along and the sooner the better so we can all get on with the pursuit of happiness and enjoying our lives and our families.

While I don't disagree with this assessment, there was more to it than that. I volunteered for the Kerry campaign as a state environmental coordinator, having been recruited for the role under the impression that my input would help tailor their efforts here to speak to issues that would resonate well within our borders. That never happened. Both Gore and Kerry lost West Virginia because they made no effort to speak to our issues, and instead just tried to pitch their overall platform on the few occasions they showed up here. (And in both elections Bush came here three times as often as the dem. candidate, taking care to tailor his remarks to his audience) As a state coordinator, it turned out that my role was simply to try to implement the same strategies they used in every other state, and not a one of the many state-specific strategies my fellow volunteers here worked hard to develop was given any consideration.

I know we're a small state with only a handful of electoral votes, but we're also a swing state, and in a tight race every vote counts. Both times we voted Bush, yet we also overwhelmingly re-elected Sen. Byrd, the biggest thorn in Bush's side in the Senate.

While the Bush team certainly won the war of dirty tricks in both elections, they also outmaneuverd the Democrats in the more legitimate and appropriate practice of doing their homework and tailoring local strategies to local issues of import. I sure hope whoever emerges as the Democratic candidate this time learned from those mistakes.

Like the last election the Democrats have it handed to them on a silver platter if they don't mess it up. I wouldn't mind seeing Hillary have a crack at it I guess but the women grates on me something fierce she seems so fake and snake like that I couldn't vote for her in good conscience. If she won though she might be a force to be reckoned with or we might just be getting Bill Clinton redux. I forget wether he could run as Vice President or not? hmmm...

Obama seems like a nice guy but he's too inexperience for the job, and he probably will fall flat and be marginalized when the real campaign season starts up.

Edwards the male Hillary without the huge set of balls, and just a jumped up ambulance chaser that will never get my vote.

As far as republicans go Mcain is to old and is boring as hell didn't want to be number 2 in 2000 as close as he would've came. The guy from Massachusetts Mitt Romeny might be pretty good, but he seems to be waiting for campaign season before showing what he's about. Rudy is the only republican that has any shot of winning this election because he's not seen as a party guy and he has a lot of liberal veiws, but will be hard press to get the nomination.

Don't know who I'll vote for, but give me a comprehensive energy policy to get us off oil in the next half century and I'll kiss your ass.

2008 prediction-Fred Thompson(pres) and Rudy Guiliani(VP) vs John Edwards(pres) and Barak Obama(VP). What Bush and- to a lesser extent-Congress & Senate does in the next 18 months will determine who wins.

Obama is the anti-Bush. Great speaker, especially off the cuff; clearly looks different; comes from an entirely different background. I'd say he's got to be the favourite. The Republican party is far more controlled by interest groups within the party - kind of a reversal from the traditional history of the parties. 30 years ago Hillary would have been a shoe-in by courting the party bosses. Now you see Republicans I actually like kissing up to party bosses and tailoring their platforms to those demands. Once upon a time a Goldwater could ignore the back room boys and win the nomination. Now Obama can do the same in the Democratic party.

The USA needs Ron Paul.

The mass media have been giving him zero attention but you can still support him.
This man has been literally the leading advocate for freedom in the united states for quite some time, but the media gives him no attention, they do not want people to know he exists, because those media are owned by corrupt elite who are still pushing to take away your freedom.

you owe it to yourselves to at least look into Ron Paul, find out who he is and what he has been doing for your rights.
this man wants to reinstate the constitution. reinstating the constitution will make it law again, which means no more illegal income taxes, no more crooked laws, americans will once again have the very freedoms their forefather fought for.

so check out Ron Paul.

according to the constitution any direct tax, must be apportioned
the income tax is not apportioned, it disappears into a category named undocumentable adjustments, missing money, never gets apportioned at all.
also, according to your constitution, an income tax is defined to be a tax on corporate activity.


I dont know if people in the us are simply retarded from over exposure to fluoride and chemicals of the like, or if they are simply blind to what goes on in their own country, but just so you know, yes the income tax that taxes a persons wages is illegal, the money is not apportioned, and the only ones who benifit from these taxes are your banks.
look back to the days when woodrow wilson was your presidents if you would like to question this, since 1916, american people have been paying these taxes that they dont have to pay, all because people are too stupid to pay attention to their constitution.

carrying the name 'donttakenoguff' and calling everyone stupid and retarded may make you feel like a tough guy in the cyber world - hope that works out for you. If you are interested in the tax debate, its over in current events. but for the sake of anyone in this thread who hasnt read that one, I wont leave this unchallenged:


according to the constitution any direct tax, must be apportioned
the income tax is not apportioned


The 16th Ammendment says in its entirety:


The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States and without regard to any census or enumeration.


Anyone who cannot see the fallacy of the first quote in light of the second is, IMHO, stupid, However, I will assume that you had not read the ammendment rather than assume you are stupid.

I wont debate this further in this thread as the other is still active.

I think that Hillery Clinton and Barack Obama could both win in the south


Right!!!...just like Gore and Kerry did!!!

Dems had at their disposal the most defeatable incumbant president in a long time in '04 and still managed to blow it...with a "mainstream" candidate to boot!!!

If you REALLY think this country would elect Hillary ( I think probably a woman could be elected in '08...just not THAT one!)...or Obama (sadly, this country is a LONG way from electing a black) let me tell about this prime development land in the Everglades I have for sale...cheap!!

I'm no fan of GWB, but he would beat either of them soundly if he could run for a 3rd term.....

ok, looking back at my own words i realise that i have been a bit harsh on the americans, they are not retarded or stupid, just as canadians are not retarded or stupid, in fact our two countries are much alike, but still different.
I understand the 16th amendment, it is as you say, and yes it is enforced. it has been since 1916 when Woodrow Wilson lied to the american people and said it had been ratified, which in fact it had not. a great deal of people did not question this and before long income taxes were enforced but, it still to this day remains a fraud , call me retarded, call me stupid, i dont care. in my own opinion it is a fraud, and that opinion will not change.

I hope just because I may be a nut case, does not sway you to check out ron paul who will be in the 2008 elections. it does not make him a nut case just because some canadian nut case is on his side, im the nut case, not him. and the reason I am the nut case, is because I truly believe that based on what he has done in the past, to fight for your personal freedoms , sways me to believe that he will infact bring back the meaning and the authority of your constitution, this leads me to believe that things like the income tax may change, all he said was he would reinstate the constitution, im the one who thinks this will remove the income tax, he never mentioned it. Though in the past he has spoken out against such things , including war, the way the monetary system works, personal freedoms and so on...

again, I am the nut case, not him, but check him out for your own good.

Don't be too hard on the poor Dems....

Considering they've lost 7 out of the last 10 presidential elections and can't get it through their skulls that not everyone is for socialism...not everyone believes the world owes all folks a living...not everyone believes in Govt. trying to make the inferior, the parasites, the criminal, the misfits & the non productive artificially equal to the superior, the productive & the self sufficient...not everyone believes that global warming is man made...not everyone believes that another Govt. program is the solution for everything, they have nothing left to do but make excuses and blame everything & everyone but themselves...

Ok all kiddin aside I would vote for Obama.


Sadly, this country is nowhere near ready to elect a black president, the reasons why being the topic of another thread. Sure, there are quite a few black members of the House, but they are by and large from minority districts. Besides Obama, how many black U.S. senators are there?? (hint, if you have the same # of $$ in your pocket, you are flatass broke!!).

One need look no farther than Tennessee in '04. Harold Ford, a black, was the Dem candidate for U.S. senator. Ford was a very capable and popular U.S. representative...he is smart, articulate, a great campaigner with a track record to back it up, closer to center than many Dems...all in all VERY qualified for the job. He was slaughtered in the statewide election by a older white guy who wasn't 1/2 as qualified as Ford. Yeah, the campaign got ugly and racial, but it's politics folks....it's a dirty game!! It's a fact, no one can be elected prez without carrying the South, and Obama cannot/will not come close to carrying it. And that's even before he catches the white backlash from affirmative action and those who have closely looked at his voting record.

Yeah, you Dems want to shoot yourselves in the foot again one more time, go ahead and run him.....And this time, it wouldn't even be close enough for you to falsely whine about how another one got stolen from you.

With sincere equal respect Cavalier1958.....

I've lived in the South, I have relation in the South, I have friends all over the South, and I get down there as often as I can...

I absolutely agree that many (myself included even though I DIDN'T vote for him!) are completely fed up with GWB and his merry little band of evangelical chickenhawks. No one I talk to, even those who have supported him, has anything good to say about him and will be glad when he is gone. While I agree that Obama is "refreshing" in some ways, your comparing him to JFK is apples to oranges. For one major thing, JFK followed Ike, who DIDN'T have the whole country pissed off at him as does GWB. Obama, while personable & appealing, is still somewhat a novelty right now. How much of his appeal is real, and how much is nothing more than a perceived welcome relief from what's been going on? The question will be: is there enough substance to back up all the flash? And there is a year and a half to go. Will enough of those who supported GWB and are now disillusioned, be SO fed up they will not only jump parties, but jump philosophies? I just don't believe in the end, when it's time to actually go into the booth and vote, enough will jump ship to elect ANY Dem, let alone Obama or Hillary.

But there's an even bigger looming issue for the Dems. Neither Hillary nor Obama can get the nomination without getting nasty & directly taking on the other. I mean there have already been a couple of little huff & puff pissing contests between them. Imagine what it will be like once the serious campaigning begins, especially if they are running neck and neck and out front. Where will the chips fall when it's time for every other Dem elected official to go out on a limb and back one or the other? This is absolutely the Dems'worst nightmare...2 popular minorities coming along at the same time. I believe the potential to splinter the party is very real, leaving a bunch of pissed off Dems (Dems DO tend to get all emotional when things don't go their way) because their guy/gal didn't get the nomination. No, they won't suddenly decide to vote Repub, but I wonder how many of them will be seriously disillusioned with the way the primary campaign went and might just stay home come election day??

I still say Bush won fair and square.


The only DOCUMENTED cases of "ballot tampering" were in Florida where Dems attempted to have military absentee ballots declared invalid, and here in Ohio, with what appeared to be Dem operatives calling folks appearing to be Repubs and giving them bogus information where to go to vote.

As I've said, I'm not a GWB fan at all, but yes, he did win fair and square....and a Repub will win again in '08...fair and square...if the Dems are stupid or idealistic enough to run Obama or the wicked witch...and I'll take bets on it!!

Wow, it really seems like that 27 percent that still support Bush is pretty vocal. The 23 percent that changed their mind about him over the past four years (or as I like to say, "flipflopped") don't talk much about it do they? But that 27 percent will believe anything the Reps say, still believe Bush talks to God, still think Iraq was the reason for 9/11 (It's somewhere in the middle-east right? And we needed to attack SOMEONE.) How little self-awareness can you have to still support Bush? Most intelligent conservatives jumped ship a while ago. But there's still that 27 percent, the ones who watch Fox News (O'Reilly is a GD worm) and read the Spectator (I read it to laugh at the poor reasoning. for instance, they acknowledge global warming, but say that it's because the sun is heating up)

DenniKucinich’s platform:

* Immediate withdrawal from the World Trade Organization (WTO) and North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
* Repealing the USA PATRIOT Act.
* Fostering a world of international cooperation.
* Abolishing the death penalty.
* Environmental renewal and clean energy.
* Preventing the privatization of social security.
* Providing full social security benefits at age 65.
* Creating a cabinet-level “Department of Peace”

* Restoring rural communities and family farms.
* Strengthening gun control


Kucinich is a gun grabber, No Thanks!!
If it wasn't for that little fact I could possibly support him.

Ron Paul or we are Screwed!

If Hitlery wins we will have more of Bush-Clinton-Bush-Clinton BS and the path to economic destruction will accelerate.

"This war is not against Bin Laden. We are the enemy"

The Bilderberg Group
The Council on Foreign Relations

That is BS. Don't you keep up on these things? Bush has already destroyed us economically. People are putting their money into gold for the simple reason that the dollar is losing it's value and European Countries are going to the euro. Hilary Clinton loves this country. She Has been a kind ,loving, giving, helping person since she was a little girl. How can you compare anyone with that piece of s$$t. The damage is already done and she is THE ONLY ONE RUNNING WHO IS SMART ENOUGH TO GET US OUT OF THIS MESS. Obama would be okay as a vice president. He needs more experience. Hilary has the exsperience and the leaders of other countries like the Clintons and she will be able to do a lot that the others can't. Just an opinion.


Sweetie, blaming Bush is like pointing fingers at an idiot without a brain. I dislike the man as much as everyone else but Bush is to damn ignorant to do, to the economy, what has been done.

I suggest you research the Council on Foreign Relations and the Federal Reserve and see exactly what is causing our economy to sink. It has been purposefully orchestrated by TPTB and we, as a country, are in serious trouble.

The government, as a whole, is nothing more than puppet on a string. Criminal Bankers and Foreign Elitist have hijacked our government. We will soon experience the worst crash in US history due to the devaluation of our dollar and the treasonous actions of Woodrow Wilson in 1913 by signing the Federal Reserve Act. The printing presses continue while inflation and continued war has destroyed our nation.

If you think what is coming is bad and think that Bush alone is responsible, then you obviously haven't done your homework!

The only politician that has a chance of righting this ship is Congressman Ron Paul because he understands who controls our monetary system and who holds the power to manipulate our laws. He also has the economic background and desired studies that will provide him with the knowledge needed to fight these criminal **stards!

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and the corporations which grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."—Thomas Jefferson

"Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes its laws."—Mayer Rothschild

http://reactor-core.org/money-changers.html

A vote for Rudy Giuliani, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John McCain or any candidate for that matter that has ties to the Council on Foreign Relations is a vote to:

· Continue this illegal war
· Expand this illegal war into other sovereign nations
· Implement more aggressive spying tactics on the American people
· Continue to leave our borders wide open and to continue the move towards a North American Union, which will destroy the sovereignty of our country
· Implement a National ID card system with RFID tracking chips to monitor our every move. Your new American passports already have these RFID chips imbedded in them.
· Implement Biometric scanning systems that collect data and restrict movement of citizens by labeling them “Enemy Combatants or Terrorist” for the purpose of control by the Federal Government. Break any written local or state law, and your government can now put YOU in this classification and restrict your movements within or without the United States.
· Continue down the path of destroying the dollar and destroying the middle class of this nation
· Allow illegal aliens amnesty; draw from our Social Security and Medicare benefits without ever putting a dime into the fund; receive free health care paid for by your tax dollars; receive a college education paid for by your tax dollars
· Continue threatening other sovereign nations with aggression throughout the world
· Continue to ignore the Geneva Convention and for continued support of torture
· Continue to usher in a Police State right here in America.
· Continue towards a push for a Global Carbon Tax by the United Nations because of the Global Warming scam to finance its One World Government. Yes, the Earth is warming but it has more to do with the surface of the sun changing causing an increase in the suns temperature than it does with us. If it was our fault, why do Mars polar ice caps continue to recede and melt? Why are the moons of Jupiter and Saturn now turning to liquid oceans? Are humans influencing those atmospheres as well?

And on, and on, and on…I do not care what these politicians are telling you or what agenda they say they are running on or plan to do. They are deceiving you just like the elected Democrats have deceived us since we voted them into office, on the promise to end this war. They continue to fund this war; continue to put pork into bills and legislation; continue to steal our children’s and grand children’s futures through corrupt spending practices, taxation and inflation. What has changed?? Nothing!

Do you want change? Then stop supporting the CFR members and start supporting the American citizens by electing non-CFR members or officials with minimal ties to this corrupt organization. Start electing principled Constitutionalist / Libertarians that are willing to defend the Constitution and have proven it with their voting records.

List of 2008 Presidential candidates with ties to the Council On Foreign Relations and the NAU Agenda:

Fred Thompson
Rudy Giuliani
John McCain
Mitt Romney
Jim Gilmore
Newt Gingrich
Hillary Clinton
Barack Obama
John Edwards
Joe Biden
Chris Dodd
Bill Richardson

See a pattern here? Do the research!!

I desire a President that will defend the Constitution, live up to his oath of office and defend the rights and freedoms that we so diligently cherish in this country, doing what’s best for the American people instead of what’s best for Mexico, Iraq, China, lobbyist or his big business partners.

My President should be principled and have moral character, honest and always display integrity. My President should have new ideas and have the decency to address the people of the United States openly, without crossing fingers behind his back; He should be willing to open up to you and tell you how things are going and ask knowledgeable people how to fix the problems our country faces. Above all, he should be honest whether the information is good or bad. I support Congressman Ron Paul because he has shown me that he is that man.

Ron Paul supporters are grassroots families and businesses. Ron Paul’s support has become a Revolutionary movement across this nation. The media has tried to label him an “isolationist”, as has been previously insinuated but Congressman Paul isn’t an isolationist at all. He is a non-interventionist; there is a big difference. He follows our founding fathers advice to the letter; desires only that the United States stay out of unnecessary entanglements or alliances with foreign nations and will support our troops by following the Constitution and bring them home to defend our borders as the founding fathers intended.

His record speaks for itself:

· Ron Paul is the leading advocate for freedom in our nation’s capital. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Dr. Paul has tirelessly worked for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies. He is known among his congressional colleagues and his constituents for his consistent voting record. Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution. In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the “one exception to the Gang of 535” on Capitol Hill.
· Congressman Paul’s consistent voting record prompted one of his congressional colleagues to say, “Ron Paul personifies the Founding Fathers’ ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are.” Another colleague observed, “There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles. Ron Paul is one of those few.”
· Congressman Paul has never voted to raise taxes.
· Congressman Paul has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
· Congressman Paul has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.
· Congressman Paul has never voted to raise congressional pay.
· Congressman Paul has never taken a government-paid junket.

Despite this man’s impeccable voting history there are a few primary reason I am supporting Congressman Ron Paul in 2008.

· He has absolutely no ties to the Council on Foreign Relations. An organization that has sworn to destroy the sovereignty of our country and destroy the United States Constitution and so far they have done a fine job of it! The CFR is controlled by foreign elitist bankers, corporations spread throughout Europe and Asia, the Bilderberg Group and NATO.
· He does not support the efforts to create a North American Union much like that of the European Union.
· He will bring our troops home; not just from Iraq, but he intends to close all military bases around the world, in all foreign nations that do not desire our presence, this includes those nations we presently occupy. He will end the occupations of these sovereign nations once and for all. These military personnel will then be home to protect our borders, just as the founding fathers intended. He understands that the United States is not an Empire and he wants to restore our military presence at home and save our economy in the process by eliminating these expensive bases globally. This will also restore the respect globally, we as a nation have lost, due to our empirical attitude, aggression and violence towards foreign nations throughout the world without provocation.
· He will end the illegal war in Iraq.
· He will end the hostilities of the United States Military Industrial Complex against foreign nations without provocation and he will restore Habeas Corpus and the Posse Comitatus for the American people.
· He will do what is necessary to abolish the IRS.
· He will end the reign of the Federal Reserve Banking System and restore our monetary system to its constitutionally set guidelines. Restoring the power to print our money to Congress instead of a privately owned banking cartel.
· He will secure our borders and do what is necessary to protect our sovereignty and our citizens.
· He will protect our freedoms and guarantee our rights that are prescribed by the Bill of Rights and he will eliminate all Executive Orders, that are unconstitutional, that have been written by prior administrations.
· He will eliminate many wasteful branches and programs of our government such as Homeland Security, No Child Left Behind, the War on Drugs, the CIA and FEMA.

By reducing the size and scope of our government, he will decrease our dependency on foreign nations, thus reducing our need to borrow money from these foreign nations and will strive to eliminate taxation all together, putting your money back into your pocket and removing the power of the treasonous Federal Reserve.

Come on People, WAKE UP!!
