My take on last night‚Äôs presidential debate: Ron Paul won.
Of the long list of contenders in this long campaign season, the GOP congressman from Texas more than any other has argued for ending America‚Äôs military engagements around the world, dropping foreign aid, and defending U.S. borders as the sum total of foreign policy‚ÄĒin short, isolationism.
In a 90-minute debate at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., that focused on foreign policy, President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney both borrowed from Paul‚Äôs isolationist bent and stridency, while lacking the Republican renegade‚Äôs coherence. Both tried to show they understood America‚Äôs place in the world but seemed captive to U.S. polls showing most voters lack interest in international relations....
Lurker! Nebraska Values is a well done site, but unfortunately not being in Nebraska you didn't get to see Debbie's response!

Finally, something entertaining in the political races, I'm sorry you don't get to see it.

We concentrate so much on President and it is important but we also need to be looking at all our offices right down to the local offices. We can cry corruption but if we do not hold the people in these offices accountable then we are part of the problem.
jim, the whole political process is full of corruption, both republican and democrat. unfortunately whether you are a good person or a rotton person, that corrupt system is the only system. the republicans were rotton to ron paul and obama is despicable. it is to bad that good men like ron paul who care are run over by the power hungry, corrupt garbage that we have running the major parties. by the way both parties are stomping all oveer the connstitution and godly principals
