He did come out and say it. He did not back McCain/Palin because he didn't agree with their policies.

THAT has blown me away from the beginning....I took the survey that was going around during the primaries and according to it,Gravel was my man and Paul next,but neither made it to where they were even a serious threat.Everyone pisses and moans about wanting to break away from the same old same old and had their chance to do so and blew it once again.

As for the freaks that follow Bush and Palin,they amuse me too by the simple fact of how dumb they must actually be...would YOU want someone to LEAD you that was dumber than YOU??? I wouldn't,but yet the Bush apologists and the Palinite's seem to be more than happy to follow idiots OR they(the followers) are idiots...one or the other.

An OB/GYN is more than a vajayjay doctor. Must be a man.

Sounds good to me. Another idea that hasn't been taken into consideration would be to legalize and tax marijuana and use the savings from less incarceration and tax revenue to pay for the health care reform.

I wish he would allow his libertarian beliefs to extend to abortion. It's a state issue, and I wish he would see that. Abortion notwithstanding, I support Paul 99% and I think he's the best that we've got.
