    but if they promise to shrink federal government... I would probably vote for them.

    Do you even live in California? Seriously, if you don't like Whitman, don't vote for her. But if you end up with Moonbeam 2, you have no one but yourself to blame.

TODAY'S salient points are economic more than social. Social issues will come back to the forefront when the economy is fixed. In the mean time however, it's time to elect fiscal conservatives.
    yeah, I agree with that. let the "Big Tent" be placed in one spot, and not move

    Gerry Brown. Used to be known as "Governor Moonbeam" because he was, well, out there. Even for California.

    Nevermind "Jerry Brown"... google helps, I guess..


    but... what does the "Moonbeam".......... LOL NEVERMIND...

    "To have peace, prepare for war"

    I love it, but I'm kind of a noob at latin ;)

    And I actually liked Fox News btw, during OIF. But they are still "Entertainment" posing as news. And then there's Rachel Marsden and O'Reilly... they kinda speak for themselves.

    (I would like to coin a phrase myself: "To understand the 'enemy', look at the verbal opposition: Putin, (Angela Merkel?), and whatever moron was in charge of France during 2003... oh that's right. Chiraq. "Supreme Moron" might be a more appropriate title for him.)

    for example, Jefferson HATED the Bank of the United States. But guess what financed the Louisanna Purchase?
    Ok. I guess the reason I... didn't care about "American History" classes is because it's kind of a "I already know about my own country and I don't care about what 'caused America'... let's learn about 'Elsewhere in the world, plz!"

    ( I *do* know enough to type that George III became MORE popular after losing the 13 colonies, than fighting... Free Mason-led armies)



    I'm not overlly concered on wether Whitman is Pro-life or Pro-Choice at a personal level. It's weither she is in her polices. Obviouslly she doesn't have much of a track record due to being in the private sector, but if/when she starts to consider passing pro-choice bills, THATS the time to start bitching.
    Comstock Laws are stupid period.

    And matter-of-factly, .... there are three distinct moments when I wish my mother had aborted me so much that I decided to attempt a "post-maternal" abortion.

    I agree as well. The problem with today's Republican Party "Big Tent" is that so many different viewpoints have been crammed into it, that it finally collapsed in both 2006 and again in 2008. A party that stands for nothing achieves nothing. People like Meg Whitman, Charlie Crist, Olympia Snowe and Sue Collins are part of the problem, NOT the solution. I'm aware that 100% ideological purity is impossible. But running pro-abortion, pro-amnesty, big government, tax hiking politicians as Republicans only makes the party, as a whole, look foolish.
