(South Carolinian resident) Former Governor Mark Sanford, by a landslide in our 9.12 Project straw poll. He was an excellent governor., and people have forgiven him for the affair.

In picking Tim Scott, I do so with reservations - he's voting record. However, it has been shown that he does learn and listen. Is he a DeMint - oh hell no. Is he a Graham - well early Graham which is where it bothers me.

It's not about skin tone either. It kinda reads that way.

I want to see Gov. Haley appoint Allen West as the next Senator of South Carolina. I checked the SC requirements and there is no residency requirement to be a Senator, only a requirement to be a registered voter. If Allen West moved to SC and registered to vote, he'd be eligible.

Constitution says you have to be a resident, at the time of the election, of the state you're running for. That's House or Senate. So, he'd have to move there for a year or so to establish residency before he's eligible.

The SC law says that the residency requirement is to be a registered voter. All Allen West needs to do is move to SC and register to vote before the governor appoints him.

And how long before our desperate reach next affirmative action selection Colin Powells us?

Allen West is not an affirmative action selection. Col West is a patriot who was gerrymandered out of his House seat by the scum-sucking Republican Party establishment in Florida. I have far more faith in his conservative bonafides than in Lindsay Graham, a "real" South Carolinian.

I do like Graham but you are correct imho to credit Allen West. I am just leery of desperation to get that %1 -%2 black vote at what enormous cost to what else? But West really is a good guy, a true believer in prosperity and freedom the Constitutional way.

Ed- We don't do affirmative action. West is the real deal. This is a guy who has actual leadership ability that would cut across party lines and through apathetic non-voters alike. Watch this video for proof.

South Carolina has a number of great conservatives. Tim Scott is the best choice right now to shake things up in Washington DC and in the Senate chamber. He's a good man and a personal choice of Jim DeMint.

What in the world is the Republican fetish for pandering to blacks who are not ideological fits at all to our party. How did it help Ron Paul who was AGAINST social spening but worked so so hard (patheticaly) to try to reach black voters? It was hard to watch.

Why should I care? This is a South Carolinian matter if we hold true to the principles of Federalism. I am more concerned with which Socialist moron from the Chicago machine will be next to destroy the Great State of Illinois.

I say, let the people of South Carolina decide what is best for South Carolina.

I like to vote,but I would like to vote on something concerning my state. My opinion means nothing to South Carolina. Put something about Missouri. Or better yet, something concerning all Americans so our vote means something.

I sometimes wonder how America got here today, and all I have to do is view the cheerleaders who come out here like they did during Hitlers rise.
