Since I'm focusing exclusively on political topics for now, I am only blogging over at Daily Paul.

I recently wrote a piece that tries to answer the question you've all been asking, "just how crazy is Rick Santorum?"

1 Cor. 6:11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

I am not a big supporter of Rick Santorum but I think your blog on the Daily Paul was childish and shows very little understanding of the man. I would suggest that you keep your infantile political rants off of this site

I agree, Rick Santorum is a douche.  I question his supporters' intelligence too.  Are there any Rick Santorum supporters out there who wish to explain their complete lunacy?

I was watching a recent debate, and Ron Paul was booed by the crowd after mentioning that we should base our foreign policy on the Golden Rule. Imagine that, evangelical Christians booing the Golden Rule!  SInce when did warmongering become part of Christian doctrine?

The fact that Newt won South Carolina only means that 40% of SC's population must be amoral retards who love adulterous corruption, but hate big media.   

I'm starting to question whether or not Ron Paul should want the GOP nomination - does he really want to be King of the Imbeciles?

Thanks for mentioning it. I thought you had disappeared. When I have time, I will read your musings.

PS  I also thought the correct answer was #3...

Hey, glad you guys liked it. It was fun to write. And yes, that Rick Santorum might just be the craziest person in America.  Man, I hope he sticks around in this race for a couple more months.

I saw a few bits of the debate last night, pathetic.  I laughed out loud at some of his answers.  I distinctly heard him say that the Keystone pipeline will increase domestic oil production.  1st of all, how does a pipeline produce oil?  That's like saying a train produces coal.  2nd, how does a pipeline from Canada to the Gulf produce domestic oil?  That said, I am a big fan of having your friend and neighbor as a trade partner over other unscrupulous trading partners we have out in the world.

Crazy? Quite possibly. But would you rather have the insincere used car salesman (Romney) or the self absorbed angry tenyeared professor (Gingrich)?

I think Romney would continue us down a Obama-like path if elected. I think Gingrich would be the second coming of Nixon. Santorum, I imagine, would do his best to do a reasonable job.

Don't get me wrong. Of all those left I'm a Paul supporter. Herman Cain was my first choice but we saw what happened to him.

"the Keystone pipeline will increase domestic oil production"

Having a pipeline in an area you are considering drilling may make the difference as to whether it is economical or not. Without a pipeline, your options to move your output are more expensive. Combine with a pricey, unconventional drill area, and you may decide not to do it.

That's like saying a train increases economic activity in an area. The train doesn't produce coal or anything else, directly. It just makes moving stuff around easier, which makes many more productive endeavors more profitable, including making formerly unprofitable ones finally profitable.

'Domestic'?

Yes, domestic. Consult a map: http://www.transcanada.com/keystone_pipeline_map.html and see that at least two thirds of the pipeline is in the US, including the Dakotas, where there's unconventional oil.

I'm no fan of Santorum's, but please, make intelligent criticisms. There are plenty to be made.

Seems to me that Keystone is pretty important to Canada...

from your weblink... http://www.transcanada.com/project_information.html

"The U.S. $13 billion Keystone pipeline system will play an important role in linking a secure and growing supply of Canadian crude oil with the largest refining markets in the United States, significantly improving North American security supply."

and to repeat... I am a big fan of having your friend and neighbor as a trade partner over other unscrupulous trading partners we have out in the world.

Hi. David. i found your blog only about a month ago and am going through your posting from the beginning... great blog.

there's a fight going on in an Ant schitt report page between AntiSchiff and others on inflation, the CPI and how printing of the money supply didn't create inflation (well, a trippling didn't create a trippling in inflation).
