I was going to say Porter Gaud stickers, but all except A. are acceptable. I needed directions when venturing into the wastelands of North Charleston.

How about more pollution in the air and water?

Re: “A male Statue of Liberty is one option for the struggling Patriots Point. What should be his most prominent feature?

I can't believe that people haven't figured out the irony of having a male statue of liberty at one of the nations major ports for importing slaves in the 16th and 17th centuries. Fully half the people who came to South Carolina in the early years of the nation were slaves. A statue of "Liberty" doesn't seem appropriate. The only facility in Charleston resembling Ellis Island in function is Ft. Moultrie. Ft. Moultrie was used as a processing point for slaves.

I think a nice male nude holding a tennis racket would be very impressive. Especially if I can model for the male parts.

If we get "Liberty Dude " will he be wearing the Charleston uniform? Khaki pants and a blue shirt.

The only people that had anything stolen were the Native Americans. You also need to remember that MOST South Carolinians were not wealthy enough to own slaves.....and the fact that your own people are the ones that sold you to the slave traders!!!

WHAT does race have to do with politics anyway? It is about what the man (or woman) can accomplish for his constituents. Party affiliation should not even be a factor!

All of this mud-slinging should really stop. Be adults and debate the facts instead of talking out of your rears!

Re: “If the gubernatorial election were held today, who would you vote for?

Dwight Drake helped save public education when
he worked with Dick Riley as head of his legislative
unit when Dick was Governor. This guy can get things done.
Go Dwight!

Re: “If the gubernatorial election were held today, who would you vote for?

Hey Jocelyn,
The conservatives are experts at name-calling. Look
at what they are doing to Lindsey G. right now.
I want Grooms too. He's far and away the weakest candidate
with a disastrous TV persona. Heck Yeah! bring him on for
the Dems next November!

Re: “If the gubernatorial election were held today, who would you vote for?

Dwight is the only adult in the race. We have
a little boy, Sheheen, a casualty of hubris, Mullins,
a consumate careerist, Jim(don't finish the job) Rex.
And Robert Ford, a pathetic egotist, who's claim to
fame is running radio ads against Joe Riley, contending
that he was, of all things anti-black. The Republican
field is beyond comment.
Dwight represented a student pro-bono and beat Sanford
in a lawsuit forcing him to take millions of dollars for
education. That alone is more than any of these other
poseur ever did.
Dwight Drake for Governor!

Re: “If the gubernatorial election were held today, who would you vote for?

Wow, notice that all the mudslinging and name calling is coming from the left. Larry Grooms is the best choice for freedom and it scares the heck out of the liberals. Go Grooms!

Re: “If the gubernatorial election were held today, who would you vote for?

If you actually want someone who knows how to get objectives accomplished, go with Dwight Drake. Sure, he's a former lobbyist, but so what? Lobbyists don't mash the legislators voting button in the General Assembly, the elected people in the Statehouse are the problem, not the lobbyists. Dwight Drake has proven that he can work with both sides of the aisle to accomplish initiatives, and he has the knowledge of economic development that a candidate can't just pick up in debate prep. All these other guys are clowns, Drake is the only one who can restore mature leadership in Columbia.

Vincent Sheheen? Give me a fucking break... as Harry Truman said, "it's not the pope that bothers me, its the pop."

Mullins McLeod is his own biggest fan.

Jim Rex is a broke nobody who has failed miserably as Supt of Edu.

Henry McMaster couldn't win a case if his life depended on it.

Nikki Haley... somethin smells like curry.

Larry Grooms is nuttier than a box of Cracker Jacks.

Andre Bauer is the GOP version of Robert Ford... a joke.

Gresham Barrett is... wait, who the fuck is Barrett?

Re: “If the gubernatorial election were held today, who would you vote for?

It seems to me, watching the first debate, that some candidates push their ideas and what is best for the people of the state, and some candidates push, well, themselves and how great they are. I think too this reflects in some of the comments below - not all, but you can probably tell which ones I mean.

Our next governor needs to be concerned with the citizens of South Carolina, not about his or her party and climbing the political ladder. I have met Sen. Vincent Sheheen several times now and this guy has class and the leadership we need to move this state forward. He has long been investing his time and senate role into making needed change for South Carolina. On top of that, he's just an all around great guy with a warm and engaging personality. When you talk to him, you know right away he is on the ball.

There is no one else I would rather see become the next Governor of SC than Vince Sheheen.

Re: “If the gubernatorial election were held today, who would you vote for?

I was at the Newberry debate and I watched the Orangeburg debate on TV. Looking over all the candidates that are running for Governor on the Republican side, Nikki- speaks very well, but no real experience in politics, McMaster- polished, experienced but doesn’t have appeal, Grooms- he’s on a mission but comes across as another person who would only keep to his own agenda, reminds me of Sanford. Andre- how he got reelected is beyond me. Seriously I just can’t see him leading a state. Gresham- he’s got experience, he has the appeal and he’s got a plan for real change. The Democrats, looks like a two way race, Rex and Mullins. Rex has the experience and Mullins has the appeal.

Re: “If the gubernatorial election were held today, who would you vote for?

Larry Grooms is the only candidate with any original, intelligent ideas. He has real solutions for South Carolina - Why don't you people do research before lowering yourselves to name calling. Larry Grooms has brought more Jobs to SC than any other candidate in the race. He saved the Port, helped bring Boeing in, and brought Tire Kingdom in - just last month. WE NEED LARRY GROOMS.

Re: “If the gubernatorial election were held today, who would you vote for?

We need a socialist egalitarian system in SC right now! The white man needs to be reminded that it was on the backs of slaves that their plantations operated, and that the current white power-elite exist only due to the black man's sweat and blood. Until we completely remove the white power elite and replace them with the wisdom of the progressive colored soul, we will never have equality in this state. Of course, we can't just toss out the whites, we will have to slowly acclimate these rednecks to the new power structure by first removing all Republican'ts and installing Democrats in their places. This will set the stage for our bloodless progressive revolution and the long overdue reparations of land and, by proxy, the wealth, that was illegally acquired from OUR forefathers. This process is the only moral and just course for us to take, even though it will be a bitter pill to swallow for the wealthy white power-elite. I say, "Oh well, you've made your bed, now sleep in it." Even though he is also white, Vincent Sheheen has the best chance to lay down the needed framework for our progressive vision. If you want the slice of the American pie that was stolen from your ancestors by the white power elite, VOTE SHEHEEN!
