    Of the three Republican candidates who currently have a chance of winning the nomination and who might have a chance of winning the general election, Fred Thompson is by far the most pro-RKBA.

    It would be nice to elect someone who feels about the RKBA as Ron Paul does, but it's just not going to happen until the people who complain about compromising and choosing the lesser evil do more on a grassroots level to elect libertarian (not necessarily Libertarian) officials on the local level and grow then into viable candidates for national offices.

    In my opinion, the best candidate in the field is Mike Huckabee. He's at least as pro-RKBA as Ron Paul, and he's also vocally advocating the Fair Tax in lieu of the IRS and our current corrupt system of direct income tax. Unfortunately Mike Huckabee has about as much chance of being elected as Ron Paul (i.e. next to zero).

    I'd much rather have Fred Thompson in the White House than Rudy Guiliani or Mitt Romney. I'd very much rather have him there than Hillary or that Obama character.

    I also torment myself thinking about "what if's" like a Gulionni/Paul ticket (or other variations).

    I'm thinking that if Thompson, Paul, Huckaby or Hunter got the nod, they would get my vote. If none of them get the nomination, I may just have to vote Libertarian for Pres. this time.

    Do you have a viable alternative?

    In my opinion this whole election is a lose/lose situation. I have never been a supporter of third parties and always believed voting for one was a wasted vote. This current crop of politicians is beginning to make that resolve very shaky. :sad:

    Thompson's a Good Ole' Tennessee Boy !!!

    You can put a SPIN on any News Story to read the way you want.

    Do you really want to vote for BILLARY or Osama, I mean Obama, come

    on NOW !!! Do you want to give Bill the key to our White House again?

    We'll need to fumigate the place again if that happens.

    Do you realize that only two (2) families have been in control of the

    White House for the past Twenty (20) Years; (The Bush's &

    Clinton's)

    It's time for a good Ole' Boy for a Change...Vote Thompson 08'.

    While I understannd and respect those who support 3rd party, in my opinion it is not just a wasted vote but a vote for the other party.I still believe that if Perot had not run Clinton would not had been elected.

    Just my opinion.

    I`m backing Ron Paul all the way even if he becomes a third party candidate.I`m tired of voting for the lesser of two evils.

    I learned my lesson about 3rd party presidential candidates in 1992, I voted for who I though was the best candidate... Perot.. and in the process I let the devil himself in... Clinton..

    I took responsibility for my actions.. and moved on...

    Continuing to make the 3rd party mistake in the hope that things will turn out different is simply insane..

    That is why I vote for the LP on all the lower offices when it is a choice.

    Mr. Thompson is BY FAR the best candidate on the Republican ticket at this point. No one else can offer the strong combination of qualities that he will bring to the White House. He is pro-gun and anti-abortion.

    No matter what they're saying now, the records for Giuliani and Rommey scream anti-gun. Giuliani is pro-abortion and pro-homosexual special rights. McCain is pro-gun and anti-abortion but lacks something that I can't put a handle on.

    Things definitely aren't looking pretty for 2008.

    I helped get Clinton elected in 1992 by voting for Perot. :shocked:

    Kerry's campaign in 2004 was basically, "Anyone but Bush."

    My feelings about 2008 are "Anyone but Hillary." As a certified, card-carrying libertarian, but also a realist, I'll vote for the lesser of the evils and vote for the GOP candidate.

    Like it or not, that's the way our political system works right now.

    Ron Paul 08.

    Like my sig line says "The lesser of 2 evils is still evil"!

    The folks who say a 3rd party vote is a waste are the ones we have to blame for the current situation in the Republican party. Why? Because you have continued to vote for un-constitutional scum with an R behind their name. They know that you will vote for them so they do what they want, Constitution be damned.

    And if Perot had not run we would have been lucky enough to get four more years of George H.W. Bush. A former president who is on the record as a supporter of Clintons gun ban. Wow! That really would have been the lesser of two evils. It would have felt so much better if the guy "sticking it to me" would have been a Republican.

    Vote Ron Paul


    Fred Thompson not gun friendly?

    Group: alt.rec.guns Date: Sun, Sep 16, 2007, 9:48am (CDT-2) From: [email protected] (rigger)
    ANOTHER Fred T. Story, but not so pretty:
    http://www.gunowners.org/pres08/thompson2.htm
    He is in his own words "against gun control, generally."2 And his voting record shows that to be true, generally. When he voted anti- gun, it was usually to expand federal authority. This is unfortunately consistent with his being a "law and order" conservative (pardon the pun). A complete report on each individual vote is appended below.
    Gun owners should also be aware that Thompson unabashedly favors the odious McCain-Feingold Incumbent Protection Act. This legislation, characterized by its proponents as campaign finance reform, severely limits the abilities of groups like GOA to inform the public about the gun rights voting records of politicians already in office. In many cases, it becomes illegal to even mention a politician's name in on- air advertising the month before an election. Thompson -- having voted in favor of the restrictions several times -- thinks doing so is "not a non-conservative position, although I agree that a lot of people have interpreted it that way."3 * <end of quote>
    If you google for FTs voting record on guns you'll finid he's no friend of gun owners, just another big (really BIG) fan of big (really BIG) government; as though we need more of THAT.

    Thompson`s 42% ANTI-gun voting record concerns me.
