If you want my vote, you have to stand for something other than opposing the guy who has been saying that he wants to work with you, and 80% of which he has signed into policy or moved to do is in accordance with YOUR agenda.

Too be fair, Crimmons isn't too radical on his website, but he does have an odd statement about repealing "the legal mandate for single payer health care".

If the history of the GOP is any clue, they'll issue subpoenas on "scandals" like the Whitewater, travelgate, filegate, cattlegate, and billingate scandals during the Clinton adminstration. How was that for a waste of government time and energy? They'll deregulate like Gramm-Leach-Bliley because they saw how well that worked out. They simply must shut down the federal government over budget disputes with Obama around Thanksgiving and Christmas to make those federal government employees sweat it out over the holidays. Oh...and of course, there simply must be an impeachment. The GOP enjoyed the Clinton impeachment. It was a grand display of how the GOP wields its power.

Let's at least be honest enough to call it what it is: raising taxes

Because, that's what it is.

I'm more for cutting spending. Living within your means. It's worked well for me my entire life (and yes, I know that doesn't mean it will work for the country but I believe it will). Sometimes common sense is the best solution.

I would love to hear the ideas out there....especially from the right. An actual platform. Not just..we're not liberal...so vote for us! Give us a platform! Let us compare side by side and then make a choice. I was watching Meet the Press this weekend and hard as they were pressed...the Republicans only had talking points. No platform. The same thing watching Sara Palin on Fox...with regards to immigration. Lots of nice soundbites...but no real plan. So as a voter who isn't exactly decided this year....give me something I can hang my hat on. Not everyone votes a party ticket so it would be nice to see more substance.

I think in times of peace, a reduction of spending would be sufficient.


I'm afraid, though, that we borrowed so much for so long (especially with the wars, which, before the war in Iraq, we were told would probably not cost more than $10B).


We've spent almost a $1T, and the numbers climb every month (not to mention longterm care and disability obligations to wounded vets).


We gave a $1T in bailouts away in 2008.

I googled Republican platform 2010 and got many hits, especially on the state level.

We had that happen one election with the governor of Nevada. He was running for reelection and he absolutely refused to discuss what his budget was going to be. He flat out stated that he would only reveal it AFTER he was reelected. Interestingly, he was reelected. I just don't get how some people's minds work.

Pence is on t.v. right now...says that the GOP will repeal all of health care and overturn the new financial services regulations. They will give tax cuts to stimulate the economy and prevent energy legislation that this country can't afford right now. They will turn away from socialistic agenda and bring true freedom to the country. There is your answer.

"He was running for reelection and he absolutely refused to discuss what his budget was going to be. He flat out stated that he would only reveal it AFTER he was reelected."

Well....maybe he didn't want his opponent to steal his brilliant plan!

"Interestingly, he was reelected. I just don't get how some people's minds work."

The election was like a horror novel...you want to stop reading, but you *have* to find out what happens...so obviously you have to vote for the guy. Brilliant strategy, absolutely brilliant.
