Opinions are like noses everyone has one.
Flame me all you like but I am not 100% pleased with contenders in 2012 that CNN could not wait to post that are supposedly dead even with Obama. (Ron Paul tied with Romney, I believe) We all know this is garbage (as far as Obama winning) and possibly the GOP contenders standings as well; as Obama is worse than Carter and polls show he will lose to Barney Fife.
Of Palin,Romney,Paul,Gingrich; SO FAR... I favor Ron Paul.
I have heard over the years Ron Paul was a nutcase. So...I did a little research and he is NOT a 9/11 truther. Other than his foreign policy of bringing all troops home -now- he is on the money.I can live with this.
He is an isolationist and this is somewhat what we need right now. He wants us cut off from the U.N. and all other foreign entities. He want the IRS done away with... Sounds good to me. He is a fiscal conservative that so far appeals to the very important Independent/conservative vote; of which I belong.
I like Gingrich but will the GOP ever really change? Logic prevails that if we continue the game of R's and D's switching power grabs we are only mediocre with the R's and doomed with the D's.
Romney is just a player. His health care fiasco is just that. Im tired of the McCain's and Lindsay Graham's.
Save the third party speeches getting Obama re elected. Obama will be voted out. Independents join the GOP in wanting him out of office.
Does the tea party come up with brand new candidates to sweep in 2010 and for the presidential election?
Does it really matter whether a republican or tea party candidate/ get in? I mean... once in DC the corruption lies so deep. This is why I will bet America goes for Ron Paul because he won't play the game.
If I offend all the Palin,Romney, lovers; I apologize but this needs discussed intelligently and not with blinders on.
I like that Jim Thompson fellow!
Will he do away with our government spending millions on liquor bills and various other foolishness and endangered species ANIMALS while people in America lose jobs?
Will he tell the U.N. to go pound sand?
Will he tighten up America and MOST IMPORTANTLY
DO AWAY WITH POLITICAL CORRECTNESS?
He has my vote!
You like Ron Paul AND Newt Gingrich?
Hoo boy. You need serious help. A mental hospital.
Keep calling people nuts that don’t tow your exact line of thought you sound idiotic just like the MSM.
I am waiting for your thoughts/ideas instead of name calling.
Isolationism has never been a good idea. I have no issue with most of Mr. Paul’s ideas, except (and it’s too big an exception to ignore) his foreign policy. I wouldn’t even care about that but for the fact that we can’t simply crawl in a hole and pull it in after us. It is, however, my nature to do so, but it’s just not possible.
I favor a flat tax, but I’m told it is regressive. I suppose that’s only because it would require everyone to pay taxes which we’ve been reticent to do.
How could you not? [hint: this is where you lost some credibility]
I would watch the governors. The current budget situation is providing an opportunity for them to prove themselves as cutters of spending. Someone like NJ gov Christie has taken on the unions and is looking to reduce spending significantly. Also, NJ is a high beta state (revenues grow more quickly in recovery and decline more quickly in recession). If the national recovery takes hold, he could see a significant bump. However, 2012 may be too early for a run.
I like Bobby Jindal and Michele Bachmann. We need brains, courage, faith and good strong family values, to topple the current dark administration.
you see - the kind of person it would take to “win back our nation” is deemed unelectable by the Republican Party (and many here on FR). The capitulators say we have to have a “middle of the road” candidate that has broad appeal. Unfortunately, as has been proven over-and-over - that kind of candidate becomes yet another of our big-government problems.
The phrase "the national recovery" assumes the existence of such. I don't see it.
Yep - while Newt has some serious issues - his wack-job view on GloBULL Warming/Climate change makes him someone I could not support for Dog Catcher.
All changes in our temperatures are completely natural (God is firmly in control). Any attempts to “correct” those changes are, as the writer of Proverbs puts it: Vanity.
A LOT can happen between now and the 2012 election cycle. All polls, press and prognastication are just spinning your wheels until the fall of 2011. Let’s concentrate on winning congress THIS YEAR and hold the new guys’ feet to the fire. Re-visit the POTUS issue in about a year and a half.
You are very right :-)
I am so in sync with you. Governor Christie/Palin team would be great. His term would be over just in time for the election. He is doing great things in NJ that I hope would be done for the entire country. Can you get his ear on this one? Go Christie.
I agree. We are researching those who plan to run and will only choose folks who clearly are against the socialist agenda. But in keeping a vigilant eye to 2012, I am watching Allen West.
Agreed. I like these two as well as Marsha Blackburn.
Maybe JC Watts will get back in. He flopped by semi liking Obama in the early stages. HE WOKE UP fast as did many others.
Your thoughtful and dispassionate search for the truth led you to the ineluctable conclusion ....
RON PAUL FOR PRESIDENT!!!
You Paultards crack me up.
Who is West?
Is this your opus?
I knew I would get this kind of garbage in replies.
I am not any one person’s ‘tard’ yet.
It is obvious you are a Palin or someones tard, though.
You really need to read.
Instead of having tard whomever tunnel vision.
Get off your damned high horse for one second and realize that if you shoe away all of the independent voters your party, my party, everyone’s party is doomed.
Allen West. He’s running for congress in FL dist. 22. He’s a total unknown right now, but I have a gut feeling about him. That is why I am watching. He’s a long shot for sure. Google him and see what you think.
Well said. Thanks for having an open mind and not calling names. I am trying not too.
You've got Fred Thompson, Michelle Bachmann (whom Pelosi and Emanuel are going all-out right now to knock out of Congress), Jindal, and Duncan Hunter. Hunter has a name-recognition problem (MSM screening him out). Fred less so .... Michelle's well known in the party, but less so by far than Palin.
Jindal is new, and he's from India (well, his parents are) and Louisiana, where he was beaten once by Mary Landrieu and James Carville because Jindal wouldn't fight dirty when they fought dirty (and that's the only kind of fight they have in Louisiana).
Fred and Sarah have the presence, Fred the experience and can sell people on being the President when he speaks. Sarah probably needs to serve a term as Fred's veep.
I know he did this. I know he has wrote books.
If you read my entire post I called him a DC player.
They all are.
Sad thing is he sounds most intelligent.
Ron Paul may pick Palintards gal Sarah— JOKE on the poster that called me a PAULTARD
I like Jindal far better than Romney or Palin.
Thanks. I heard on a radio show about someone running in Fla. that is prior military and good. Is this him?
So I take it that this IS your opus.
You smelling ozone, too?
Hey Hey Hey -— No personal attack! FR Rule!
Here's everything you need to know about Ron Paul.
Only Ron Paul can bring the indies -- Yup, Paulbot. Just like I thought.
I am NOT a PaulTARD :) cheerleader but the MSM has painted him to be nuts
I didn’t want to just come right out and say it, but yes.
Whose bot are you?
I am not a PaulBot. Did you even read my post?
The man won a straw poll.
The country is starving for no more games.
I am open to all in discussion. It is not my fault you are a diehard Palin or whoever supporter.
I am a registered independent conservative.
Probably. I am not from that area, I just ran across him by accident. I will keep following him to see how he does in 2010. Regular folks may not know of him yet, but many “in the know” types have already spotted him. We’ll see.
I hope he runs.
Ron Paul states, Iran and North Korea are not a threat
Ron Paul voted against condemning Ahmadinejad.
Ron Paul’s main supporters including his money men, alex Jones and Lew Rockwell are 9/11 Truthers, Holocause denyers
and anti war Code Pinko supporters.
We need a strong conservative who plays the game well....The American people are mainly morons they insist on you lying to them.
