    Watched the Arizona debate. John, asked the question about the misconception American people have about each candidate. Santorum and Romney seemed had their own opinion on how to answer a question which obviously here they didn't really answer the question rather just gave their own opinion which is something so encouraged in this country where people confuse facts with their own ideas which I call " delusional opinion with no premises". Kudos for our education system that produces idiots like Santorum. How could we vote for a leader that is so egotistic and disrespectful on a National TV.? "You ask the questions, I get to answer it the way I want"? What he was really saying screw you John, I am running for a president and I will do what I want? I hope Santorum will not win the race, the country will be heading to a chaos.

    I personally don't care for Romney either , he doesn't have the experience to run for a president and he's another one with a big ego. Paul and Gingrich two wise men with a lot of experience and if they work together they can really help this country come back a winner.

    I don't like the idea of all of them keep putting Obama down, If the candidate really want America to succeeded they should help Obama and work all of them together to find the best solution for our country socially, economically, and every way to make this country go forward. But it seem everyone is there for themselves "it's all about me". I don't get it why these intelligent people don't work together? I don't get it why they can't take a problem and try to solve it, and give some facts rather than their own "opinion"? Why can't we follow Plato's ideas and thoughts on how to solve a problem by clarifying it and coming up with the best solution? What will Plato say about America's politics today?
