    I could get behind Alan Keys, in fact I have voted for him in recent primaries. He is a very strong Constitutionalist. However, is today's citizenry educated enough to help him carry the day? If he is on the ballot I will be very hard pressed not to pull the lever for him. :thumbs:

    I bleive he would create big problems for McCain since he is a true conservative.

    I doubt it. Most conservative people would rather have McCain than Obama.

    I like Alan Keyes, but let's be reasonable here, when has he ever caused anyone any problems in a political race?

    I think that the issue is that he will take votes from McCain, thus allowing the Dem nominee to carry the vote for POTUS.

    I think it'll be better for America in the long run if the dems win it, this time. I don't see it happening, tho. But I would rather see Hillary in than McCain. If we are going down a global socialist path, I'd rather a dem do it.

    If Keyes makes the ballot, and Paul doesn't, I'll vote Keyes.

    I would say, thus his slide into irrelevance is complete...but he has, in fact,never been relevant in American politics.

    Allan Keyes is a great American, supporting both the spirit of the Constitution, and the foundations of the Christian faith.

    He's gotten my vote in the primaries also.... but, like many other similar runners... no one I asks seems to know him. The networks limit their coverage to the front runners...and any thinking person knows.... its the power of the democrats and republican organizations who promote their preference and annoit the front runners for pubilc approval which the networks expose.

    Somehow, many see Ron Paul as a libertarian..... but I think he is also more constitutionist than libertarian... imo.

    I will vote for any third party runner who takes a stand on a constitutional platform.

    Unfortunately, the networks aren't likely to do their 'news and public' duty of giving coverage to all candidates... and prefer their free spots for those who also buy air time ads...... and have big budgets.

    It is so sad, that many people in our country are 'good' people, but don't know or follow what is happening: Many are disturbed by what they do know, and many feel powerless to change things: Many will go to the polls and vote 'their conscience' for the choices offered by the two major parties troubled that there will be little change, little difference..... and totally ignorant....by their own failure to learn.... that they may have had another choice, a choice which was better, a choice which was more in line with the America in which they wanted to live.

    I fear our country under the Constitution of the United States, is already lost! Already, there are laws which define terrorism in terms of disagreement with policies, questioning our rights, resistance using the Constitution or our Faith as a line in the sand: That line is being wiped away by the power we've already allowed our government ...... and have failed to take back.

    Our government is like the cups of the pharissees, all white and shiney on the outside...... but inside, evil, full of hidden occultism, and collaborative corruption.

    God may allow our current leadership.... but any one who preaches our present leadership is to be followed blindly as the perfect will of God, either doesn't know God and his judgement upon a sinful nation, or is in danger of selling out to another god.

    Keyes is a great thinker and would make a great cabinet member or UN Ambassador. However, he has not been a major factor in any race in recent memory. He was token opposition to Obama for Senate. Unfortunate. He's a brilliant orator and thinker.
