    I hope you ask about the NDAA and the Patriot Act.
    What about Obama's foreign policy and drug wars.
    Oh by the way Piers if you really want to get his goat tell him to want to have a 25 mile an hour bike race in the summer heat of Texas

    There is a lot of talk about an alliance between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, This is a call out to request Ron and Mitt to a debate in Virginia, since they are the only canidents on the ballot in that state. That should put and end to all the conspiricy about an alliance. How about this. I will bet for Romney not to except, and Ron Paul if you refuses I want my money back for the contributions I gave and for the sweaters I bought.
