"What those guys said," Yeah, that's Right

Things that I noticed late last night, watching the (pre-recorded) Republican debate on, the first Republican candidate debate 2007-8 that I've been able to watch because of my new work schedule, and thanks only to Fox News' kind accommodation on its website.

I actually thought that former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee hit the big home run last night, by strongly emphasizing the abolition of the IRS and implementing the "Fair Tax" scheme, and for his strident belief that protecting America and her citizens from terrorist attack is the primary importance, and winning in Iraq now.

And maybe it was my predisposed fear of presidential candidates who have been governor of that state (and Even More fearful of presidential candidates who were Arkansas' first ladies....) which have kept me from considering Huckabee as legitimate, before now.
But I cheered aloud, when Mr. Huckabee announced his support of the Fair Tax Initiative.

Alot of furor and indignation today is aimed at Texas Representative Ron Paul's dumbass remarks concerning "the cause of Muslim hatred, and the 9/11 attacks.

Here is my impression:

He, Ron Paul, is an ignorant duffus; a sad, yet curiously-comical figure, who seems to haunt U.S. Presidential politics every four years. To say that al-Qaeda terrorists killed nearly 3,000 Americans that dreadful day because they resent our presence on their precious soil, during the past 17 - 20 years, is just asinine and uninformed.

Mr. Guiliani's immediate response to him could've been issued and uttered by any of the 299 million of the rest of us Americans who have bothered to hear or read the Koran, or any momentary study of Wahhibi-istic Islam: These kooks hate us because of our freedoms, our celebration of diversity, freedom of thought, speech and religion. Far, far, further down that list of reasons they hate us, is our presence on Muslim sand.

Beside that, simply please look at the Islamic paradises of Palestine, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, et. al.: Strife and murder is so common in these places that Islam could never be seriously regarded as a "Religion", only as a historical "reason to kill".

Now also, after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the late Rev. Jerry Falwell said, "I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their faces and say, 'You helped this (terrorist attack) happen.' "

And he was quite correct!
For radical Islamists don't only hate us for stepping onto their Saudi sand dunes, damned Infidels that we are, but more for the way we are free, free to love whom we want, and be loved, to dress how we choose, to simply exercise a benevolent Creator's love, by our personally chosen religions. (There's also much to say about their religion's demand to acquire land and property by force, acquire slaves, etc...)

Islam is to blame for the cause of Muslim inferiority, and their perception thereof; however they can never, ever admit that. Islam discourages the freedom of thought, the freedom to question or challenge Islam. It cannot stand up to scrutiny at all.

Seeing it being brought to the attention of American voters last night, delicately and subliminally, in the Republican candidate debate, is another good step in the correct direction.

I thought Huckabee did pretty good last night, along with Tancredo and Romney. Paul was a complete horse's ass, and I was NOT impressed with Giuliani's lame explanation of his support of abortion rights and gay rights. I wish someone had had the balls to ask him why, if he is supposed to be so pro-Homeland security and secure borders guy, his Law Firm is helping to get the North American Union Super Highway Built.

The Super Hiway will run from Mexico through the center of the U.S. right up to Canada. It will be 10 lanes wide, it will be built by a European Company who will control it and collect all the tolls. It will also require the confiscation of land owned by thousands of American citizens through eminent domain.

The North American Union will, in effect make Mexico, the U.S. and Canada One, which will mean an end to our national sovereignty. How can Giuliani, if elected president, take the oath of office, in which he will pledge to uphold the Constitution of the U.S., and then turn around and sell us out to the NAU?

Also, I did not like McCains defense of his voting record. He has consistantly voted with the Dems, siding with Kennedy, Kerry and Hillary on just about every issue. He claims that he likes to reach across the aisle in bi-patisanship. I don't think the majority of Conservatives vote for their senators or representatives to vote for Liberal causes.
