By who? Santorum? Romney? The first is simply insane and the second is so out of touch he doesn't realize that a million dollars is a lot of money. Either one getting elected to the presidency makes the world a much scarier place.
There was a poll in Iowa showing that Ron Paul would be the strongest GOP candidate against Obama. I thought that was interesting. Ron Paul is the sanest of the GOP candidates now, because of his anti-war views, compared with their war-mongering views. His economic views are nuts based on the austrian economist ideology he has, but it is not because he is sold out to all the crooked monopoly capitalists that the others are indebted to.

He was correct. There is way too much ignorance in the heartland based on fundamentalist religion that is proud of stupidity and gun-toting idiots that think they are hot-sh*t because they have a rifle. I know. I grew up in central Kansas. There is a reason people of some class and intelligence fly over that state.
i had to drive across kansas on the way to denver one day... on the way back i crossed the state at night because i was so sick of having to look at winnit ridden sun flowers that i could puke.

The problem is that Ron Paul *is* the sanest of the bunch and he is still nuts when it comes to many topics. So who, exactly, do you think would actually win against Obama? Santorum? I certainly hope not. If he can actually get elected, this country can be buried immediately. Romney? At least he knows how to run a business--that is, if you don't mind him firing everyone. Then you have Gingrich running on a morals platform (!!!?!). Is anyone actually fooled by that?

I grew up in central Kansas. There are pretty areas of the state (flint hills are wonderful), but for the most part it is boring and flat. But then, so is Illinois. Worse, Kansas has never had any desire to actually see anyone educated or to actually improve its economic situation. Instead of calling someone encouraging education a 'snob', how about helping people to take advantage of the one well-recognized way to pull yourself up the economic ladder?

On one hand, he floats out to Americans that he is a man of Christian faith, while on the other other, he quips during a San Francisco fund-raiser to far-left, limousine liberals that America's Heartland is comprised of "people who cling to guns and religion".
What a jerk!!!
Last time I checked, there was no religious test required to be president.

Ron Paul has some good ideas, I agree-- unfortunately?

He has some really, really >>bad<< ideas as well--

-- and those bad ideas are too costly to make up for his scant few good ones.

Pass.

I thought the comment was more about how obama catered to the christians while among them and stabbed them in the back when it was convenient. Major league hypocrisy.

In fact, the constitution says very clearly that no religious test is allowed for any office of the United States (Article VI):

"The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

Only under the Genuine Christian™ idiocy do you need to worry about what you >>think<<.

Under normal rules?(you know-- reality) Your thoughts are your own-- nobody can read them but you.

As for your "comrade" comment? Tell that to your communistic Jewsus-- he sternly advocated selling ALL your sh7t and living in a commune.

I think that is a >>stupid<< idea myself.

With all due respect, are people still falling for that one? Turkeys are said to drown looking up into the rain.

That is the psychology of anhedonisitic religions that feature harshly judgmental, panty-sniffing gods.
