Ten percent of the way! I read a quote in my e-mail today that I thought was hugely relevant to... everything.

Perseverance and spirit have done wonders in all ages. -George Washington.

Arlo Guthrie has endorsed Ron Paul for president because he says Paul is the only candidate today who would have signed the Constitution if he'd been there. I agree totally. Some of the things I agree with Dr. Paul on:

-Immediate withdrawal from Iraq, where we shouldn't have gone to begin with.
-Abolish the income tax and the IRS.
-Reduce government to its original intended purpose (as enumerated in the founding documents).
-Restore liberty by eliminating laws that infringe on it. (Gun laws, Patriot Act, etc.)

I could go on, but I normally don't engage in much political discussion, mainly because I'm not interested in "arguing."

Weights and treadmill today. Should get lab results from my doctor visit tomorrow or so and see if all this stuff is working!

What Arlo Guthrie said is probably true, and it's a clever way to look at these candidates for sure. It looks like Ron Paul is kind of gaining some momentum too, what with McCain taking center stage and leaving a lot of true conservatives in the lurch in the process.

I don't like arguing politics, either. :) Talking about it is okay though.

My feeling is that you and I would tend to argue politics. And really, the bottom line is, no matter how full or empty a barrel of crap is, it's still a barrel of crap, right? It's hard to get enthusiastic enough to argue about crap.

Well in my defense, I am definitely a lot less bleeding heart than I used to be, and am not sure if I would really say that I'm any one party. The more I read of man's history the more objective my thoughts (I think) are about the state of things. Which is maybe why I like to talk about it...for all practical purposes, politics have become a very non-emotional issue.
