    I totally agree with the author, people in this country are fed up with politics and will cross party lines for a pragmatic leader. The GOP has to find a candidate, Pawlenty comes to mind, who people will get behind, to lead the country in the right direction. We don't need another candidate who has to be pushed to the finish line.

    It sounds to me like she is describing the steadfast Ron Paul, who understands what REALLY creates jobs, and what destroys them.

    Wireguy, though we might agree with Ron Paul on many issues, my point is we need someone to lead the party. Ron Paul will result in a spin off from the party and independent vote and ultimately reward the Demos with another 4 yrs.

    Ron Paul shot himself in the foot by saying it was wrong to kill UBL.

    If he gets anywhere near c ampaigning that will be his downfall.

    From the Ron Paul web site:

    A nation without borders is no nation at all. After decades of misguided policies America has now become a free-for-all. Our leaders betrayed the middle class which is forced to compete with welfare-receiving illegal immigrants who will work for almost anything, just because the standards in their home countries are even lower.

    If these policies are not reversed, the future is grim. A poor, dependent and divided population is much easier to rule than a nation of self-confident individuals who can make a living on their own and who share the traditions and values that this country was founded upon.

    Ron Paul’s six point plan puts a stop to illegal immigration:

    1.Physically secure our borders and coastlines. We must do whatever it takes to control entry into our country before we undertake complicated immigration reform proposals.

    2.Enforce visa rules. Immigration officials must track visa holders and deport anyone who overstays their visa or otherwise violates U.S. law. This is especially important when we recall that a number of 9/11 terrorists had expired visas.

    3.No amnesty. Estimates suggest that 10 to 20 million people are in our country illegally. That’s a lot of people to reward for breaking our laws.

    4.No welfare for illegal aliens. Americans have welcomed immigrants who seek opportunity, work hard, and play by the rules. But taxpayers should not pay for illegal immigrants who use hospitals, clinics, schools, roads, and social services.

    5.End birthright citizenship. As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be citizens, the incentive to enter the U.S. illegally will remain strong.

    6.Pass true immigration reform. The current system is incoherent and unfair. But current reform proposals would allow up to 60 million more immigrants into our country, according to the Heritage Foundation. This is insanity. Legal immigrants from all countries should face the same rules and waiting periods.
    The facts on the ground are being created right now. Every day that passes makes it more difficult to reverse the damage that has already been done.

    Ron Paul's ideas about not attacking osama bin laden in Pakistan before telling the politicians there is unnerving. He also said back in the days after the 9-aa attack that it was our fault that the terrorists attacked us. His foreign policy is a bit screwed up to suit me.
