I was a delegate for the Reform Party in the year 2000. (The youngest one, by the way.) I met Pat a couple of times while he was there.
He used to believe in "free trade" but he changed his tune. Some people can come around if they've been mistaken, and I'm sure he's one big enough to admit he's wrong.
I wasn't aware that he chose Sara Palin for "person of the year." To me, that's disappointing, considering he's against endless war, and Palin doesn't seem to mind it.
I don't know whether he goes to the diocesan Mass because he believes it would keep up his appearance, or if he really thinks that's the right way to go. I guess they would try to call him a raving anti semite if he went to the other one.... oh wait, they already did call him that. :scratchchin:
All I know, is that the CIA was outside of that Reform Party convention to make sure that Pat got no momentum and picked up only 500,000 votes during that election because of the fear mongering (as usual) by Catholics and pigeonholed republicans (yes, even trads fall into that category sometimes) saying, "If you don't vote for Bush... we'll get GORE and that's scary!" Similarly, in later elections, the same thing was done regarding the Constitution Party candidate, et cetera. Look who we have now! The fearmongering is starting to wear off of people because they're largely tired of it and are starting to see through this fraudulent "two party" farce.
He was ahead of his time. Just like Ron Paul back in 1988 was ahead of his time. People just weren't ready to take that leap and at least make a decent attempt to break free of the slave handlers. If Ron Paul doesn't get the nomination this time, I can pretty much guarantee you that we're going to see four more years of Osama. (Ahem, I mean, Obama.)
