    Is this a good thing? Is he going to be the hope of the conservative GOP? He's popular amongst the talk-show folks...

    Is he going to get rid of the IRS and the Federal Reserve?

    Nope. However, he will maintain his globalist positions and his association to the CFR.

    I suspect he's the globalist ace in the hole as he will likely capture a lot of support from people that believe they're conservative and believe that he is and Ron Paul will need to get on Law and Order to compete for the television addict vote. The neocon and mainstream media are quite favorable to him, Pajamasmedia has him on their poll even though he hasn't announced but exclude Ron Paul as does 2008Horserace and others. Mr. Thompson is fairing quite well on most of the internet polls and I doubt that Rudy McRomney can compete against him for it is just too obvious how liberal Rudy and McCain are and what a Republican version of John Kerry, flip-flopping Romney is. Thus, it will likely be a matter of how effective this Ron Paul grassroots effort will be, against a charismatic Fred Thompson who will have the mainstream press and big money on his side.

    Not that I have anything against Thompson, but your comments are very sad but true.

    I did notice that alot of the polls don't have Ron Paul on it. I read an article about the PajamasMedia site, and how Ron Paul was running away with every poll, until of course they took him off it.

    Rumor has it that Newt Gingrich could throw his hat into the ring.
    :laugh:
    Sorry.... can't stop laughing.
    Newt has some very serious character issues, and has no chance of getting the nomination.

    Rufus, thanks for the heads up on the CFR. I didn't know. Now, I am very sad. Better to find out now than after election, like I found out about Bush.:tear:

    But I didn't belong to the BB back then. There is a wealth of info here on the BB for those who have inquiring minds.

    Ron Paul doesn't have a prayer (so to speak) of winning...

    Isn't Thompson better than Obama/Clinton?

    Do you think Thompson would change his pro-life/pro-gun stances?

    He might have a prayer if Christians would get on their knees. We do still have a God in Heaven that answers prayers, don't we? But probably America is going to get the president she deserves. Do you suppose America deserves better than an Obama or a Clinton?

    Yeah, and it's all real. Nothing fake. No politics here. His record is above reproach. He means what he says and says what he means.

    Refreshing isn't it? I know I for one pray he gets elected. We can't deal with much more. This country needs a correction after all the many many years without one.

    From what I've seen and read of him, so far, he is a-one presidential material.
    I hope he gets the job.
