Good take on the debate Al. Sorry it's been a while since my last post, but I've been busy with work, school, and kids (my daughter is three now).

Anyhow, it's weird that I chose this day to come back and visit because I've been looking for someone to discuss the debate, and apparently you're the only person that even bothered to watch it.

To me, Guilianni is the only choice in this election (and this coming from a man who voted for Clinton 2X). He's the only one who had the guts to say what he really believed and didn't just ramble off the usual rhetoric (i.e. I BELIEVE in a better education for our children's future). Plus, I think it's high time we had a Wop for president.

My own political theory has basically boiled down to this.

The bureaucracy of our federal government has made it incapable of managing any program, or crisis, with any efficiency what-so-ever. Therefore, the less the federales touch, the better. They've proven time and time again through Katrina, Healthcare, Iraq, Waco, Tort reform, etc. that they have the opposite of the Midas touch, aka everything they touch turns to shit. Therefore, the less responsibility we give them the better.

Truly, our own government has become the Fredo of the United States and we should do exactly what Michael Corleone did and put them in charge of some bullshit bar in Vegas where they can't fuck up anything too important.

Gulianni is the only one who seems to get this other than the Libertarians, and Bob Barr is just too damn weird to elect President.

I hope all is well, shoot me an email sometime I'd like to go out for a beer. By the way, I sent your web page to my Dad, so if you get some bizarre post that criticizes your camping skills and lack of KP skills, you'll know who it is.

Great to hear from you again, sir! I was just thinking of you and the wife and kid and hoping all was well. It really has been a while, hasn't it?

And I am currently on the same page as you in terms of Presidential hopefuls. Giuliani seems to have the right mix of toughness on foreign policy while not really wanting to back a great deal of domestic legislation. As you say - the more the government keeps their hands out of every day business, the better we will all be.

But I am keeping my mind open all the way around, especially considering that the first primaries won't even get under way until next year.

I do hope that Newt and Fred Thompson get into the thing, if for anything to keep the conversation moving in the right direction. The last thing the GOP and/or the general electorate needs is a bunch of Republicans trying to see who would outlaw abortion the quickest or which candidates jump over each other to present their Constitutional Amendment bonafides.

I'll definitely send you an email soon and look forward to the beer.

Later,
AL
