I definitely want change. I am a conservative who is upset with Bush because he deceived the conservative base.
What I want is someone who will govern as he says he/she will and who thinks with conservative disposition. As such, I would like to see Huckabee and, if the special interest ties are not too deep, Newt (even if he looks like a charicature.) A lot of what Ron Paul says resonates with me, but I think the time is wrong for him.
As best as is possible in the realm of politics, I think these guys are pretty much "WYSIWYG."

NOTHING could be worse than what we have. ANY choice IS better.[/QUOTE]
Carter was worse - hands down. If he would have dealt well with the midEast and Iran, not only would we not have lived thruogh 20% inflation, but radical Islam would likely have much less significance.
I am down on Bush (not so much for the involvement in war as for his lack of fiscal restraint and mismanagement post Victory speech.) But sometimes what you don't do is worse. Carter's ineffectiveness .............. from the monetary to the kidnappings to the Olympics to the Middle East, Post Carter Syndrome has enabled the planetary dissonance that continues to this day.

The roots of the ME problem go back way before Jimmy Carter.
