We all have strenghts. We all have weaknesses and things we could improve upon. I do. Don't you? Barr being overseas wiht patriotic aitary parents most of his life means he was wiht the family probably more than most kids and had discipline and love for country drilled into him. I am sure his parents kept up to date on politics here, read the Satrs and Stripes USA military newspapers and tlked politics around Bob Barr and his siblings? Bush also failed in the oil business. He's president. And Clinton failed at being a good husband, but he was a good president, I feel. I am sure we have alll had personal failures. Hopefully we have learned from them? Our president, whoever is elected..will still be a human being first. We should support whoever is [laced in office. Those who run for that office have the best of intentions to try to do what is best for us. Thye have different beliefs in how to go about it, but they are at least trying. Right now we would have better choices if all parties and candidates could be given equal TV air-time, so we could look at the third party candidates and not only the democratic or republican ones. If there is nothign to be nervous about..why not allow it? (Npo candidate will be perfect. But better to know ALL of what is offered to us, I feel.) I was happy to see a posting about another party other than the two usually spoken about! I would LOVE to see more about even the OTHER thrid parties! The Green Party is also interesting!! Thanks for the post!!!

Hmmm... I'll have to wait and see who McCain's running mate is before deciding to go Libertarian. Overall, the Libertarians are more on the side of the constitution except for the Constitutional party, than the Republicans, but if a vote for the Libertarians could give the election to Obama, I'll have to vote McCain.
