SW Ohioans 4 Fred (Thompson)

June 12, 2007 12:38 PM

I learned over lunch that a friend of mine is behind the website SW Ohioans 4 Fred.  It's the blog "for Fred Heads primarily in Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton & Warren Counties- the counties that decided the 2004 election."  Great point about how this area decided the 2004 election.  People have already forgotten that. 

As for me, I have not yet decided if I'm 4 Fred.  But I'm sure I'll be reading SW Ohioans 4 Fred as I come to a decision, and you should be too.

Looked at Ron Paul yet? Yeah, I know... sounds slightly cross-dressery, but look at what the guy actually does and stands for....

I like it that he gave Ruuuuudiiiiiie a reading list for presidential candidates. Funny.

I'm deciding between actually voting my conscience this time, for the first time in a long time and throwing it away, and jumping on the Fredhead wagon.

My first impression of Ron Paul came when he stated that we (the US) brought 9-11 on ourselves. Anyone who even insinuates that the US is the cause of 9-11 (which btw, justifies terrorist actions) is automatically written off my list. I could have been open to him, and other parts of his record are good, but that is a line I will never cross. I say become a Fred Head!

I think if you actually look at the comments, he was referring to our incredibly ignorant and short-sighted foreign policy.... Of course, it was in a sound-bite debate situation. He seemed to learn from it and next time instead of engaging in pointless argument with someone who doesn't want to even think about those possiblities, he gave Rudy the reading list. Bet Rudy or Bush or any other NeoCon doesn't want to acknowledge any failure or lack of understanding....

I'm with you, NBS, on the wait and see position regarding Fred. I have a hard time supporting a candidate based on what he might say if he most likely runs (even though he definitely is).

I am growing to like Ron Paul more and more as a primary candidate. My only hesitation is his position on Iraq (immediate withdrawal), which I do not believe is a viable option. However, everything else is pure, true conservative. I would like to see him stay in the race long enough to influence the party platform, and hopefully he will since I am seeing articles that his fundraising is actually taking off.
