27. The words "avoid" and "plague" come to mind.
I'm so sick of Ron Paul - the sad thing is he is the best that the GOP has to offer, but he's not the best person qualified for the job. The only people in my group of friends who are voting for Ron Paul are the die-hard conspiracy theorists. That goes to say a lot. :tinfoilhat:
