Hi Myra!! Hope you're doing great m'friend. :)

Even though I disagree with a couple of points, I'd vote for him in a nanosecond. I'm so underwhelmed by what/who's being presented out there, Mr. Thompson is pretty much down-the-line-conservative. Yahoo! (not the search engine).

And as far as not agreeing with everything, no way is there anyone out there who'll agree with everything we do, unless it's us ourselves.

Did that make sense?

Hola la Barista!!!! Good tidings!

Your post makes perfect sense. I used to believe I couldn't support a candidate that voted for McCain-Feingold. It is such a horrible piece of legislation. But the country needs a strong decisive leader.

I was in the Giuliani camp before, but FDT is Right on so many more issues.

Wow, fascism is alive and well on this blog site. Maybe you can find a way to crush puppies to make a buck.
