I just don't trust Romney. I know the country needs someone in leadership who can correct the economy and get our huge debt paid down. The only person I see who could probably get it done is Dr. Paul. Newt is too far to the right for me. Why cant we just get someone who is in the center like most of us here in America.

Ron Paul is the ONLY sane choice. Just listen to him tear these other fools apart with the truth!

Watch out for New Hampshire because they don't like to be told how to vote - If Romney won Iowa NH may say no not really.

At some point are these candidates going to address plans on immigration? On how to bring this country together? I am the author of LIE, a debut young adult novel, about the aftermath of a hate crime against Hispanics on Long Island (inspired by real events) from St. Martin's Press, and I care deeply about sensible immigration reform. I teach at the City College of New York (as an adjunct in the English department) and I care deeply about the Dream Act and its passage. They all have seemed to waffle on it. They all have seemed to take up this barely coded racism surrounding entitlements. However, where is their plan to bring TOGETHER this country, and yes, for me that includes a sensible, forward-looking plan on immigration?

I wonder if candidates will now focus on slamming Santorum and lay off Newt now that poll numbers are down. Should be interesting if some candidates end up on the left of Santorum (who isn't really?).
