There I Said it!  Now that you’re here, enjoy the rest of my blog.  There is religious content (sure to infuriate the atheist-leftist branch of Paul’s followers) and even you aren’t sufficiently offender you could visit my other blog by clicking here.

BTW, just to throw the Ron Paul supporters who show up here a bone- I agree with much of what Paul has to say!  However, I think he has ZERO chance of even winning the primary, much less the general election.  Real elections aren’t like on-line straw polls.  In real elections you only get to vote once AND you have to actually leave your house.

But, I must say, best of luck to Paul.  We could use someone to show that the two party system isn’t invulnerable.  However, in an age when the electorate is groomed to expect handouts from Republicans and Democrats alike- the only difference being on party promises a larger amount and to different groups- I don’t expect a small government strict constructionist like Paul to even come close to winning.

Now Perot, that guys was nuts, but he really had a chance to win the whole thing.

I feel invigorated and refreshed, like I could take on the world! I began by jogging to the gym at a brisk pace. The distance from the parking garage to the gym is about a little less than half a mile. Today the gym has far fewer people then usual, and none of the usual clowns who spend entirely too long on the same piece of equipment.
