I hate these debates, when Hunter gets called on so seldom. He has such good conservative positions on each topic, yet has only been able to speak on a few.

I’m starting my prayer and fast “Esther” regimen. Time is wasting and we need a miracle for the Hunter campaign!

I notice a lot of people call him “Rudy,” and can’t help but wonder whether they’re like me and can’t pronounce his name?

The way I learned was someone called him “Julie Annie.” Now I just remember the Mayor in drag and the blond wig and say juliannie.

As a minister, Huckabee muffed this question. What would Jesus do? Well, Jesus was hanging on the cross between two thieves and he said nothing about it being wrong or unjust, and Jesus wasn’t one to keep quiet.

The Constitution says that its purpose is to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity.” Who do you think our posterity is composed of?

And, the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments make it clear that innocent persons cannot be killed. Unborn babies are persons. Those who disagree, agree with Judge Blackmun, the author of Roe.

I said, “The answer to Romney is if you hire a company that uses illegal labor, jobs will keep going to illegals.”

You replied: That is such an ignorant statement.

I agree w/ Rudy on this. I believe in the Bible, I don’t always believe in human’s interpretation of it or what we are told what everything means.

Huck is also right. What we call allegory was known as Peshers at the time and were a common literary device.

The question was what would Jesus do on the death penalty?

Well of course since Jesus was a religious figure liberals would say that it would be a violation of church and state for Jesus to speak on a political issue. Unless of course Jesus agreed with the liberals in which case of course Jesus would be allowed to speak forever on the issue.

You’re right. The thing is, even with government out of the way entirely - or even giving them a “helping hand,” whatever that may be - they need to overcome their cultural issues first.

Just speculation. His support is a little too organized,if you know what I mean. I had never even heard of Ron Paul until I heard several die-hard leftist Democrats talking about how they could vote for him. Knowing for a fact that nothing could ever persuade them from voting for anyone other than a Democrat, I immediately grew suspicious. That was about a year ago.

I now go out and see Ron Paul signs in people's yards. And this is months before any primary. It doesn't make sense. Combine this with the fact that the only reason Bill Clinton ever got elected is because there was a third party candidate taking away a substantial piece of the vote. Bill Clinton did not win a majority of the vote either time, and there is no way Hillary could ever do it. The only hope she has is for someone like Paul to run as a third-party candidate and steal votes away from the GOP nominee.

We also found out after '92 that Clinton helped fund Perot's campaign. While I cannot cite Paul's exact donors, I can definitely cite past Clinton behavior.
