It depends of if they're nuclear scientists for Iran.

(either the CIA has gone ape shit and are actually assassinating people, or someone else is doing it to raise tension between the US and Iran.)

I want to punch him in the face.

What does he call 90% of media being controlled by five major companies?

If those five companies back SOPA (which, they do) how are those companies not abusing their power by not reporting about it?
Well said. Pretty cynical stuff. ...But so much is.

Hey, maybe we can get contraceptives outlawed. Santorum said he's for it, and I know there's a big push on. wheeee!

Santorum. Good God. Meh as he has been, I want Obama again. If there must be a Republican, I guess Ron Paul (not because I'm a libertarian, more because at least he has ideals that aren't insane and sticks to them). Mitt Romney is better than Santorum, but I wouldn't want him either.

Obama's alright by me. Nothing extraordinary, but he hasn't had any major screw-ups, and he's good on foreign policy.

Of course, I'd really like Vermin Supreme to win.

Of course. A proper ID system in America has been lacking for years, and I believe he has the solution.

Oh, also, I'm not on the U.S. but tell Vermin Supreme that if I get a Twilight Sparkle, he has my utmost support.

Ron Paul's platform is basically all about reduced government spending across all the boards.

He recognizes that the US is buried in debt and he has been running for president to try getting them out. His whole campaign is about fiscal responsibility.

However, due to the "pursuit of happiness = acquisition of material goods" nature of Americans in general, his whole platform doesn't make sense to people.

This makes him like a total radical when he says things like "cut welfare programs" as well as "legalize weed".

Coming from a very fiscally conservative family, I really like Ron Paul.

He came onstage to the imperial march at one point, that's enough for me to vote for him.

If I lived in America, I would to, unfortunately I don't so I am unable to show my love of that sort of thing.
