If you had to make a choice for a change in the direction of this nation, which direction would you choose if the elections were held today.

Stay on the Progressive track of tax & spend?

Turn back to the middle trying to please both sides like Bush did, with cut taxes and increase spending?

Turn this nation into a self sufficient powerhouse, where the USA comes first, where taxes and spending are reduced greatly?

Paul or Huntsman would be #1.

I expect neither of them to win their party's primary, so I will probably vote for Obama in the general election.

None of these options describe my views, so no comment on this portion of the question.

My vote is going to a governor. I'm for Rick Perry. If he's not standing at when my primary comes, I'll go with the governor that is still standing. I did the same in 2008 and couldn't believe the final choice was two (UGH) Senators.

I don't want to vote for Obama. But I will.
The Republicans being offered are appalling.

Other choices would be to RESTORE FREEDOM by Repealing the PATRIOT ACT.

Kill two birds with one stone. Improve Foreign Relations AND our Economy by bringing the troops home from 150 countries.

Restrict or STOP the Federal Reserve money printing

Scale back or ELIMINATE the IRS.

Throw the banksters and the corporatists and the Government officials ---who under Obama and Bush have been stealing from us --IN JAIL!
