Guess who...

...we got to meet tonight?

See him back there behind A?
Yep, Ron Paul! So cool. He was very gracious and answered a couple questions for me as I got a picture taken. I think the coolness of the experience was mostly lost on the girls, but they were good sports so I could go see my favorite presidential candidate. I just hope they are as accommodating Saturday morning as I drag them out of bed to go to the caucus. We have to be there by 8:30am, so we'll see!
Maybe someday they will thank me for the window into the political process in this country that they are getting, and will get, this election year.

I asked one question for me and one for C. Mine was about the environment and his answer was that the market, free market, can help with that. I tend to think that government will need to be leading us a tad more than that, but he did say something like the oil is running out, so I am glad to hear he is aware of Peak Oil. C's question was about how he would get out of Iraq and he answered with the advice of the military leaders and with safety being one of the biggest concerns. It was very quick and there were a lot of people around so getting to talk at length was not going to happen. I was satisfied with his answer, but then I do have knowledge of what he means when he says the market will take care of the problem. Oil is heavily subsidized and if you take away the subsidies, it gets a whole lot more expensive. New solutions then have a chance to succeed in the market.
