Looks like you are not going to get any other choices.

Our nation is fixing to make that very choice, of who they trust with their lives.

The only time I plan on needing life saving is if I have health issues, if those are my options I choose the MD. Hopefully he has training in ER medicine.

What a question. I can't think of any political figure alive or dead I'd trust with my life.

Eh, what are we talking about, building fire rescue, fatal disease or shootin' the varmints as we stroll through the woods?

If I had to depend on one of them,no other options, no way out of it, it would be Dr Paul.
At this point, he is the only one on the list whose name could even be written on the same page as the word integrity

Then you don't vote?


Every time you go to the polls, you place your trust in in your livelihood, with the guy or gal you pull the lever for.

Now, if your guy or gal doesn't win, that is a new question and a new topic.

C'mon...that's one hell of a stretch.

No sane person actually trusts a politician with his or her life. You elect them to run the damn country, not minimize risk to your life or livelihood. If you do trust them that much, then you're a little more dependent on government than you think.
