    Rand is alright in my book, he's not perfect though. But I'll gladly vote for him.

    I can only hope the Bible thumpers, war hawks and big government GOPers don't push Rubio or Cruz and get defeated again by Biden, Cuomo or Bloomturd.

    A neoconservative will never be able to snag the Latino or Black vote.
    A hispanic Republican doesn't match a Democrat promising checks every month.

    The GOP needs to drop the big government, perpetual war and forced
    Moralism and get back to limited government and free market economics or they'll lose again in 2016.

    I saw that interview this morning. I hope he does run in 2016. He'd be a decent candidate. However I'm still pessimistic about the future of this country. Not sure it matters who runs. I still think the last election was a transition for the nation as a whole.

    Agreed. I'm worried about those GOPers too. Sadly it seems a lot if them have not learned a thing from the past two elections.

    Same. I think that transition period started at 08 election though.

    Rand Paul and Susana Martinez might make an interesting ticket. I wonder if they would be electable?

    If it works that way then the Christians wouldn't get the nation they deserve.

    I think so.
    A lot of people are starting to like Rand. I'd definitely say is one of the favourites at the moment.

    Martinez is just another GOPer...watch out for her. She's all on the universal background check bandwagon I believe she is going for the health care exchange.

    Yeh. Rubio hasn't been very clear on gun control either.

    I'd like a Paul/Cruz ticket or vice versa.

    I heard somewhere that Cruz was born in Canada before his parents immigrated to the U.S. Anybody know about that or did I hallucinate it?

    Indeed. Susana is my Gov and I think she's doing pretty well considering she's fighting a pack of liberal la raza career politicians at the state capitol.

    She also packs heat and is easy on the eyes. Bonus points there.

    He was born in Canada. His father Cuban, his mother American, so he is a natural born US citizen.

    THe left was able to convince a majority of the votes during the last Presidential election that Obama was a better candidate than Mitt Romney so I don't have much confidence in the voters these days.:dunno:

    I think we should concentrate on the 2014 mid-term election and trying to keep the House and taking back the Senate for now.

    I have no problems with Christianity, I don't go to church but I beleive in God.

    What I have a problem with is people who try to make their religous codes and morals the law of the land. Thats not what God nor the founders of this nation intended.

    When a GOPer gets behind a microphone and starts talking about rape being an act of God and legitimate, and picketing DC with "being gay is a sin" signs, it tends to drive voters away from the GOP.

    We have bigger problems in this country now than whether or not two gay people can get married, I think the GOP needs to focus on free market economics and limited government and stop trying to turn the government into a moral enforcer.

    Its not government's job to mold society and make you a better person no more than it is to rob you to pay a welfare leech.

    Are you sure about that? John Adams was a founder, and I suspect he knew exactly what he and the others had in mind when they wrote the Constitution. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
