Good point, Art. Thanks for that site. ;-D

I am very much left-leaning, but I am a HUGE Ron Paul fan. I never seen a candidate so adamantly defend the constitution of the United States, from any party, and preach an unrelenting adherence to the proposition that elected officials fulfill their most basic duty: to uphold the Constitution of the United States.

If Ron Paul were a candidate for President, he would have my vote without a second guess.

I heard this speech today on NPR and I encourage ALL of you to just give it a chance; what a breath of fresh air this man is. Just listen to hear what he has to say, it's the kind of speech that makes me proud to be an American:

Also, if you're still not getting your news from NPR, please reconsider.

What? No Colbert? :-C

Guiliani at 5-1 and Romney at 8-1 are good bets.

Donald Trump is 1000-1? What a bargain!
He could buy the white house and put a skyscraper in it's place.
How is Clint Eastwood 750 if Trump is 1000?
They have the same chance = 0
