    Wow, what a great answer. Wolfie set a trap and it backfired. Praise God. I love to see that happen.

    I understand Sam Brownback is dropping out, he is my first choice. That being said Huckabee is a great second choice. I would vote for him.

    From what little I have heard of him, he seems to be possibly the only true conservative in the bunch.

    Apparently you haven't been watching Duncan. Huckabee is for taking away freedoms of Americas and states rights. Sorry, he isn't so conservative. He is willing to make liberal moves that Mrs. Clinton isn't.

    What, you'd rather have "have-it-your-way-just-like-Burger-King-Clinton" than Mike?

    I did not give an open endorsement of Mrs. Clinton, but I did express how in certain areas Mike is more liberal concerning states rights and the American people.

    I would back Duncan over all other options. Like I have mentioned before, if Rudy or Romney are the Republican nominee, I won't be voting this year. Rudy might as well be a Democrat and Romney is no better.

    Tobacco use, he is for legislating a laws for the ban of tobacco use in any public area. Whether it be restuarants, businesses, and so on. Why can't this be something done on a, business to business, city to city basis, or state to state. Why must he strive to control people by legislating a nationwide ban. This is just one example.

    I think on issue by issue i probably agree with Duncan Hunter more than any of them, but i don't think he has much of a chance.
    I do like Huckabee though, i'm just not sure if i'm ready to throw my support for him. Until he started making a better showing for himself and before Thompson jumped in, i was planning on supporting Romney; so i'll just have to keep watching.

    BTW...Glenn Beck interviews Huckabee for the entire hour tonight on his show on CNN Headline.

    I'm not going to agree with any candidate 100%. I thought we were talking something monumental...even if I don't agree with a federal tobacco ban, I don't think I would have couched it in the "taking away American freedoms and states' rights" hyperbole. that seems a bit over the top.

    I was sad to hear Brownback was dropping out. I'm not sure if I will vote.
    I doubt Huckabee will make it either. :(

    How about Romney. :smilewinkgrin:

    He can't just pick and choose. If he's for a ban on tobacco, then he must also be for a ban on alcohol. PM me when he says something about bringing prohibition back. I'm all for that. :applause:

    I believe there are over 20 countries worldwide that have public smoking bans. In countries with entities like states/provinces, these bans do seem to be managed at that level and not the federal level. At least this is true in Canada and Australia. I believe the reason for that is because Health Care is also managed at a state/provincial level and public smoking bans are health initiatives.

    I don't believe the prohibition of alcohol is the case in any of those countries.

    So? Talk of straining at gnats and swallowing camels!

    According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2006, 17,602 people were killed in alcohol-related crashes - an average of one every half-hour. These deaths constituted approximately 41 percent of the 42,642 total traffic fatalities. Drunk (those at or above an illegal BAC of .08) drivers were involved in 13,470 fatalities in 2006. ( http://www.madd.org/stats/1112 ) These, of course, are deaths and do not take into account those who are injured and maimed. Nor does it account for the poverty, domestic violence, child abuse and other social ills directly related to alcohol.

    How many traffic fatalities were related to tobacco? How many injuries? How many wives and children were beaten because of cigarettes?

    When it comes to the number of innocent victims, and the degree of their suffering, alcohol is a villianous and montrous vice, and if the gov'ment is going to ban something, it ought to be alcohol.

    That being said, Great response from Huckabee! Wolf sure didn't want to give the audience time to applaud, did he!

    I believe all those countries do have drunk driving laws including the US.
