I have been a Ron Paul fan for awhile. Perhaps his pro-Constitutional government bias would eventually catch on with j6pk if the media would keep him in the limelight. No others from either major party offer any prospect for turning this mess around jmho.
A runner also-- good to meet you! I began "jogging" as a young engineer in suburban Detroit about 1962. Local cops used to pull me over curious what i was up to. I still manage some 15 easy miles a week but a slow pace. Can still manage a easy 14'er although they seem higher steeper and air thinner than when climbed them all 35 years ago!
