    I cannot support him, for several reasons, one of which is his disdain for environmental regulation. Have you seen the movie Gasland? We need more regulation of industry if the massive abuses exposed in that film are any indication, which they are (the film deals with fractal drilling for natural gas in all over rural America). Unless gov't legislation is enacted and enforced, there is no counterbalance to the human tendency to destroy everything in pursuit of money. we have an imperfect system now, but throwing it out will only feed greed even more.

At the same time he regularly returns over $100k in unused office funds every year. He also is not accepting the lucrative congressional pension plan. The man is virtually incorruptable. It will take someone with his moral authority to shame both dems and repubs in congress and lead them in the direction of true fiscal conservativism and a balanced budget.
    Intresting, thanks for the background info. Well I stick with my opinion, I like him too .
