    It would seem that some people will vote for this guy not because he has good ideas or a future vision, but because they don’t like his opponent.

    Now he wants to be the real enforcer politically. One step closer to a real police state.

          What does the $500 hammer mean? It means where were you when under the Reagan Administration the Pentagon was buying $500 hammers and $900 toilet seats? Have you examined the Halliburton Iraq no-bid contract expenditures under George W. Bush? I’m sure all that slipped by you huh? Perhaps you should watch the old 60 minutes episodes to refresh your memories. I use the plural because you have 2 sets of memories, one for items you find convenient and the other for items you’d rather not think about.
