Honestly, I oppose any candidate running for two offices simultaneously. I don't care who it is or for what office.
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you bleep with me, I'll kill you all.

I didn't enlist in the Corps just to watch my country become a Third World Communist Shit-hole. Don't know anyone who did.

I don't.  As long as he is still doing his job as Senator, I'm OK with it.  If he doesn't win the presidency, I don't want to lose a good senator.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
