I have a feeling that the 'pro illegal' sentiment of Clinton et al will likely change by this time next year

I support Giuliani because I think he's the person most likely to defeat Hillary Clinton in a national election. However, when it comes to the issues, the platform most similar to my beliefs is definitely that of Mitt Romney.

I don't understand how Giuliani calls himself Republican, he believes in abortion and isn't wanting to run the illegals out on a rail.

I can't see him getting the religious right behind him, if he fails to do that, I can't see him winning the race.

Bush certainly seems to be making little or no effort kick the illegals out-----and, he is a Republican as well.

As for the religious right: several of their icons in recent years have 'blown it' in the so-called morals department.

I completely agree with you, however its all about what your SAYING in politics, not what (or who) your doing.

I always have a little chuckle when another fundie is found in a compromising position. I heard a mention that they caught another closeted Republican with a male escort just the other night but I hadn't heard the name of the people involved.

I have been watching to see who the religious right is going to back. I read that Sam Brownbeck pulled out of the race. I can't see them backing Giuliana or Romney.

If either one of these two becomes President we are in a world of deep chit, no better off than we are now with the Chimp.

me too, Just think, if they are saying things like this BEFORE even getting into office...imagine what that person would do once in office and can do whatever he or she wants. At this point, any independant is better than any rep or dem

I'm not impressed with either party's crop of candidates. I'm not nuts about Hillary, and I voted for Clinton in 1996 and Gore in 2000.
If you vote for Hillary all we will have is Bill all over again. I hope people learned their lesson with bill, We don't need another one..

Rudy will at least DO SOMETHING about illegal immigration. I like his plan. It makes the most sense. BUT, if you want OPEN borders then HillBill is your candidate!
